Sami Osmakac, a Kosovar refugee, became interested in extremist ideology. An FBI informant gave him a job, then introduced him to an undercover agent posing as a weapons dealer. The FBI provided a fake bomb and an inert AK-47 for Osmakac to attack a local bar and casino in Tampa, Florida. In accidentally recorded conversations, one FBI agent described Osmakac as a “retarded fool” who didn’t have “a pot to piss in.” Osmakac was later diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder.
