I agree with your observation. Your concerns about entrapment have been raised by alot of civil liberty type organizations- usually involving plotters of the Islamic variety.
But.... in the end, alot of entrapment arguments keep getting shot down. For example, this case here:https://www.projectsalam.org/documents/Apeal_Briefs_Newburgh_4/Appeal brief - Cromitie.pdf
- Professional undercover contractor (need to find bad guys to stay employed. So... incentive to "create" bad guys?) approaches dim wit loitering around a mosque.
- After being shown "juice up" material, dim wit makes a series of anti semitic and anti USA comments. Ironically, some comments are contradictory (not the brightest plotter ever).
- Undercover contractor then repeatedly approaches him about carrying out attacks. Suspect is sort of interested, but not really. Contractor promises alot of cash, a barber shop, and.... a kewl car if terror attacks are carried out.
- Dimwit eventually recruits three other plotters. But their attention spans and interest soon wane. Under cover contractor is ordered to keep the plot moving. Dimwits eventually retrieve and plant dummy explosives at synagogues and military base.
Trial judge and appellate judge then shoot down entrapment claims. There are some successes, however.
This dim witted eco plotter (blow up dam 'n torch the research lab) eventually got his conviction over turned years later after the sexy under cover contractor (fishnets and ohh so anarchist black everything) was found to have been trained in seduction psychology and was provided with feedback on keeping the lapsing plotter interested in her until the "mission".
Contractor also used the smoke some weed- then watch juice up videos, and "Yes, my car works and I"ll provide the rides to the secret training hide out." type techniques.
In a Democracy Now! exclusive, we speak to environmental activist Eric McDavid, who has just been released from prison 10 years early after federal prosecutors acknowledged withholding key evidence about how he may have been entrapped by an FBI informant with whom he had fallen in love.

The feds blew the “Operation Black Biscuit” I think it was, the big motorcycle club investigation, because cops got to comfy in the bike world. I guess these things are sticky but as I’ve mentioned before, look at the dirty games that LE has played in drug cases.
