I'm really wondering if this is what happened here...


Following that logic, shouldn't the inside agents also be charged for expressing intent and conspiracy?


But leading up to that day there was plenty of expression of intent and conspiracy.

It is entrapment, but how frequently are entrapment laws actually followed? They do it all of the time.

Pretty much, under the guise of "trying to prevent it" or "we're the police so we can get away with nonsense like this" *cough cough NY cough cough*.
