The investigation began last fall when Batiste allegedly tried to obtain financial and military support from two men of Arabic descent who worked as informants for the FBI.
One was a North Miami convenience store owner who got acquainted with Batiste, the group's ringleader, in October. He introduced Batiste to the other man, a veteran FBI informant with immigration problems who posed as an al Qaeda representative.
These guys were obviously trying to obtain slushies of mass destruction, probably lime. I think this case might become an embarrassment for the FBI.
