Bill Swor, a prominent criminal defense attorney who has defended terrorism cases in the past, said the charges suggest that the federal government is “being cautious in how they charge the case.”

“They don’t want to make it bigger than it really is,” Swor said. “(The charges suggest) that they don’t have any evidence that this person had any real attack plan, or any activity planned.”

Swor said the case, which involves an undercover FBI agent selling grenades to Gregerson in a setup, raises a crucial question: “Is this a situation where you’ve got someone who is just talking, and but for the activity of the government, would never take any action?”
