It's bullcrap. Why couldn't FBI keep him under close watch to see if he ever did establish a legit plot? This is like leaving a bag full of money out in the streets to see who is going to try to steal it - and then arrest them. Is the kid an idiot? Sure... But his idiocy was turned to a plot by the Feds.
