Entrapment / At what point do we start creating terrorists?

News today that a man was arrested for trying to blow up the Capitol Building.

Apparently law enforcement "has been intimately involved" for some time now. Did we supply him with the inoperable vest? How far would he have gone on his own? This reminds me of the guy who thought he had left a bomb outside of Sluggers on a Friday night - but in reality undercover police had given him the fake bomb and arrested him soon after. Part of me worries that we are intentionally creating criminals - its certainly a good way to justify the hundreds of billions we're spending on "Homeland Security."
