    Apparently you missed the lead-up from the news.

    Couric: Law enforcement officials don’t know who left the Nissan Pathfinder behind, but, at this point, the mayor believes the suspect acted alone.

    Bloomberg: If I had to guess — 25 cents — this would be exactly that, somebody –

    Couric: A home-grown?

    Bloomberg: Home-grown, maybe a mentally deranged person or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything.

    NYC mayor: Bias will not be tolerated

    Tuesday, May 4, 2010

    NEW YORK — Mayor Michael Bloomberg says New York City "will not tolerate any bias" following the arrest of a U.S. citizen from Pakistan in the Times Square car bombing attempt.

    Bloomberg said Tuesday that also applies to potential backlash against Muslim New Yorkers.

    The mayor said there are "a few bad apples" among any groups. He also cited New York’s long history of accepting cultures from the around the world.

    Of course bias against crazy redneck racist ‘teabaggers’ people opposed to ‘healthcare reform’ is perfectly acceptable.

    Holder’s Statement Avoided ‘The P-Word’

    May 4, 2010

    WASHINGTON — Here is the text of Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement Tuesday of the arrest of Faisal Shahzad in the attempted car bombing in Times Square:

    Earlier this evening, Faisal Shahzad was arrested in connection with the attempted car bombing in New York on Saturday. Mr. Shahzad, an American citizen, was taken into custody at JFK Airport in New York as he attempted to board a flight to Dubai.
    Isn’t it odd? All we hear from Mr. Holder about Mr. Shahzad is that he is an American citizen.

    Not that he is from Pakistan. Not that he has recently returned from several months in Pakistan.

    Probably Mr. Holder was trying to avoid any possible ‘backlash’ against Pakistanis.

    Now, now... He may indeed have issues with the individual mandate. After all, shouldn't the determination of whether you get adequate medical care be left to Allah? :D

    So, just for the record, there have been how many recorded attacks by Islamic terrorists in the US in the last year?

    Okay, there was the Arkansas shooter who killed one Soldier and wounded another at a recruting station, the FT Hood shooter, the Newburgh plotters who wanted to attack the airport and the USAR center up there, the Quantico plotters who wanted to murder Marines, the guy who was planning a bomb attack on the NYC subways... Hmmm... Quite a few incidents.

    Vs. how many by Tea Partiers? Let's see...

    There was the guy who called a congressman a racial slur... No, that turned out to be a hoax. Hmmm... there was a beating at a town hall meeting... No, the tea partier was the victim; it was SEIU thugs that did the beating... The guy who flew his plane into an IRS bulding... No, he was a leftie who hated Bush and corporations and thought that the IRS and the government worked for Wall Street. C'mon, there has to be something, otherwise the media and Democratic politicians wouldn't be harping on the violence inherent in the tea partiers and ignoring the violent jihadis, right?

    Correct. And no matter how much I'd like to turn him over to a "Jack Bauer" type...we really can't do that. :mad:;)

    As a citizen, he's entitled to all the protections.

    I don't know about anyone else but his smug attitude has me a tad wary.

    It's almost like this incident might have just been a test. If this raghead really wanted to go to Allah, why didn't he just stay in the SUV and make sure his widdle bomb went off??? These people aren't as stupid as some might think. And THAT is something to be worried about.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    More importantly, our national security capabilities are being gutted by the current administration. By refusnig to even use the term "terrorism," our governing class is sending the message that we are indifferent to this kind of attack unless it generates headlines, at which point, we will react with all of the adjectives at our disposal.

    BTW, this guy became a citizen through a fraudulent marriage and did so after training with al Qaeda, so there are grounds for revoking his citizenship. OTOH, since he has committed an attack against the United States, he can be charged with treason, although for some reason, we seem to be loath to use that term in describing the actions of guys like MAJ Hasan and other US citizens who take up arms against the US.
