Alleged bomb plot leader 'A few Fries Short of a Happy Meal': informant
A mole working for CSIS and the RCMP inside a would-be terrorist group called the alleged leader 'a few fries short of a Happy Meal' during the trial against a youth accused in connection with an alleged 2006 plot.
While the mole says the mastermind had some crazy ideas, he was relieved that police were keeping an eye on him.
The leader of an alleged bomb plot in the Toronto area in 2006 was "a few fries short of a Happy Meal," an RCMP and CSIS mole testified Tuesday.
But Mubin Shaikh, the Crown's star witness, also told the Brampton, Ont., court that he was relieved authorities were monitoring the man, despite the fantastical nature of his alleged plans.
"This is the thing that bothers me: Do I laugh or do I shiver?" Shaikh said. "Even if he got half way to his intended goals … I'm glad that an eye was kept on him.
"You and I know it was a fantasy, but he certainly didn't think it was a fantasy."
