The Baltimore Sun believes that it was not the hard work of the FBI that stopped a man from committing a terrorist act against a military recruiting station in Catonsville, but it was some of the people he contacted in Muslim community who would not go along with his plans ("Terror in our midst," Dec. 9). What? Did the Muslim people the terrorist contacted call the FBI and tell them what this guy was asking them to do? No, it was the diligence of the FBI that found this guy and stopped him. Come on, Baltimore Sun, give credit to the FBI for doing their job. Ron Wirsing, Havre de Grace

Rumors often circulated that Tom Clancy's thrillers were so detailed in their descriptions of military and covert operations that the FBI had investigated the Baltimore novelist to determine his sources for works such as "The Hunt for Red October. " After Clancy's death in October 2013, The Baltimore Sun submitted a Freedom of Information Act request for any FBI files on Clancy. The FBI sent back 46 pages, including several redacted pages of background checks federal authorities had conducted.

FBI investigators still have not been granted permission to visit the consulate building where the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans were killed three weeks ago during an attack by Libyan militants in the eastern city of Benghazi. An FBI team was dispatched to Libya within days of the attack, but they have been forced to remain in Tripoli as U.S. and Libyan officials argue over the terms under which the two sides will co-operate in the investigation. Why is there such a undue delay for there FBI to find out exactly what happened?

As an original 1986 founding member of CIA's Counter-Terrorism Center, and having read and/or listened to all publicly available information about the alleged plot to bomb a Catonsville military recruitment center, I wish to highly commend the work done by our local FBI agents and those from headquarters. Although I do have a graduate degree in criminal justice which required completion of criminal law courses, I am not a lawyer; however, every indication is that our bureau colleagues did everything by the book, and even arranged for the purposely safe, inert bomb to render an audible explosive sound to clearly document that the alleged terrorist followed through and actively triggered what he reportedly believed to be a lethal car bomb!

I hope that the readers of The Sun will read to the end of the editorial in Thursday's paper ("Terror in our midst," Dec. 9). The last sentence seemed to me to be a wise comment, "As much as we rely on the FBI to keep us safe, we may owe the most to peace-loving Muslims who will not tolerate the radicals in their midst. " Thank you for that thought. Phyllis Yingling, Catonsville

How many of my tax dollars went to the FBI to set up this and other ridiculous sting operations ( "Arrest made in plot to blow up area military recruiting center," Dec. 9)? How much will be wasted on court costs and incarceration? Wouldn't it have been wiser to have agents pose as reasonable, mainstream Muslims and talk the poor, misguided guy out of being a radical? Or better yet, connect him with any of the fine mainstream Islamic organizations in the area who could easily bring him into the fold and teach him that such acts are not acceptable?

The FBI had previously been warned by the Russian government that the 26-year-old Boston bombing terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev was being radicalized ("Bombing suspect faces U.S. charges," April 23). The FBI interviewed him and then just opened the door and said have a good day. No further attention was given him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Why? When he left the United States and went to Russia in 2012 for six months, there was no questioning of him by the FBI at his return.
