“FBI agent Leslie Martell said that on September 3, Nozette received a telephone call from an individual purporting to be an Israeli intelligence officer. The caller was an undercover FBI agent.”

Isn't that entrapment?

Isn’t that entrapment?...No. Unless the FBI agent was asked “are you an FBI agent?” For instance, a bar owner sees what is obviously a drunk patron and the drunk asks for another drink. If he asks him are you a liquor agent and the guy says “No.” the bartender serves him, and then is thus arrested for selling to an obviously intoxicated person, he has a case of entrapment.

It depends. It could be a legitimate technique. But not one that should be employed unless they already had good reason to believe that he was spying for Israel.

Legally, there’s probably a fine line which the FBI violates from time to time—but at least they should have some good reason for violating it.

Only if you were enticed to do something you weren’t already predisposed to do.
