An August 2011 report from the Center for Law and Security shows almost 50 percent of terrorism cases since 2009 have relied on FBI informants and the “use of aggressive and often controversial” sting operations.  The report also finds that, since the beginning of 2011, almost 87 percent of terrorism cases have involved a material support charge, including charges that “do not require proof of intent that the material support go to illegal activities.”
