THIS SEEMS SHADY: FBI posts fake hyperlinks to snare child porn suspects. “Agency disseminates hyperlinks purporting to be illegal videos of minors having sex, and then raids the homes of anyone willing to click on them.”

Harvey Silverglate, quoted in the piece, is right about the overly narrow definition of entrapment. And honestly, at this point I wouldn’t put it past them to spam these links out, perhaps disguised as something else, to a Tea Party list or something, then go after whoever clicked on them. It’s not that far from the dirty tricks we’ve already seen.
