Conviction for attempting to detonate a large bomb during the annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in downtown Portland, Oregon, in violation of 18 U.S.C. section 2332a(a)(2)(A), is affirmed where: 1) the district court properly rejected defendant's defense of entrapment as a matter of law; 2) under the circumstances of this case, the district court did not err in denying defendant's motion to suppress, based on tardy disclosure, information collected pursuant to section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978; and 3) the section 702 acquisition of defendant's email communications did not violate the Fourth Amendment.
