The FBI encouraged and sometimes even paid Muslims to commit terrorist acts during numerous sting operations after the 9/11 attacks, a human rights group said in a report published Monday.Aided by Columbia University Law School's Human Rights Institute, Human Rights Watch examined 27 cases from investigation through trial, interviewing 215 people, including those charged or convicted in terrorism cases, their relatives, defense lawyers, prosecutors and judges.The report cites the case of four Muslim converts from Newburgh, New York who were accused of planning to blow up synagogues and attack a U.S. military base.The rights group charged that the FBI often targets vulnerable people, with mental problems or low intelligence.
