Terrorists use new version of the Chewbacca Defense, the Fried Chicken Defense.

chewbacca  Yeah.  Not even sure how to respond to this one.   I couldn’t stop thinking of the Chewbacca defense on this one.

The alleged plotters face charges of conspiring and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction and conspiring to kill officers and employees of the United States. Defense lawyers claim the suspects were entrapped by an FBI informant who also paid the suspects with meals of fried chicken at a Crown Chicken restaurant.

"You can’t watch the tapes that you don’t see eating going on," said Marilyn Reader, lawyer for accused would-be terrorist Laguerre Payen.
"The [confidential informant] is paying for all these meals."

Therefore, the defense contends the terrorism plot only came about because of FBI entrapment and bribery with fried chicken. Inducements other than fried chicken were hinted at but none identified. Assistant U.S. Attorney David Leibowitz said he would check the fried chicken angle.
