    OMG a Terrorist at a tree lighting ceremony in Portland!
    I'm really really really scared and I think I will submit to any type of search.... Maybe the government should outlaw Christmas tree lightings to keep up all safe. It's only logical. Well, anyhoot, no one was in any real danger, the authorities gave the fella the dummy bomb.............


    The FBI thwarted an attempted terrorist bombing in Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square before the city's annual tree-lighting Friday night, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office in Oregon.

    A Corvallis man, thinking he was going to ignite a bomb, drove a van to the corner of the square at Southwest Yamhill Street and Sixth Avenue and attempted to detonate it.

    However, the supposed explosive was a dummy that FBI operatives supplied to him, according to an affidavit in support of a criminal complaint signed Friday night by U.S. Magistrate Judge John V. Acosta.

    Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, a Somali-born U.S. citizen, was arrested at 5:42 p.m., 18 minutes before the tree lighting was to occur, on an accusation of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction. The felony charge carries a maximum

    1. They still have to set people up
    People who otherwise would have no possible means of carrying out a serious terror attack. Be afraid, be very afraid.
    Because he couldn't have bought a shot gun and killed a few people that way. If he went this far, there is nothing he wouldn't have done.

    29. probably. However, without the help of the feds- he probably wouldn't know what to do with it.
    I don't. Do you?
    Because you haven't bothered trying to figure it out. Anyone who wants to though, can easily learn it.

    10. These stories are all over the country.
    I can't believe this is a smart use of resources. They've arrested a string of people who never would have managed to get their terrorist plot out of mom's basement.
    One DU'er speaks truth to DUmmies though.

    54. If the guy had blown up the Portland Tree Lighting Ceremony, a lot of families w/little kids would
    have been there.

    The guy expressed direct, repeated interest in a high body count, even after being reminded of the above fact.

    Had it actually happened, it very well could have been my family there. My two toddlers.

    So you know what? This isn't about Americans whining regarding the airport or being afraid of TSA agents seing their fat rolls. It has nothing to do with the TSA.

    The FBI did the right thing here, they got a potentially murderous asshole off the streets.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Maybe they should put Micheal Moore in charge of anti-terrorism; Moonbats seem to giggle with joy every time he says " There's no terrorist threat." Then see what fat-man has to say after he lets a dozen or so nutburgers kill hundereds and hundreds of people.

    Wow, except for Warren and a couple of others on that thread...

    I'm sure the feds had to work really hard to trap this fool.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    Why am I not surprised the DUmmies react this way?
    Wonder how they'd react if the would- be terrorist was a white conservative associated with the Tea Party movement?
    "1. They still have to set people up
    People who otherwise would have no possible means of carrying out a serious terror attack. Be afraid, be very afraid."
    No possible means?
    How about going to another illegal weapons/ explosives dealer that WASN'T an undercover Fed and would have supplied him with a REAL bomb for the right money? Did that thought never occur to you?
    Another attempted Christmas terrorist attack (planned by, surprise surprise, a Muslim extremist) occurred in the Chicago area a few years ago. The would- be terrorist wanted to attack a shopping mall on the Friday before Christmas using grenades hidden in trash cans, but was fortunately foiled by attempting to purchase the grenades from an undercover Fed in a sting operation.
    Of course, the DUmmies would howl about how his rights were being violated or whatever, never mind all the innocent lives that were saved by the Feds' actions.

    That's what they said on the news this morning, and further that the FBI's sources that led to his arrest were involved in that center.

    Question for lurking DUmmies: What do you think would happen if somebody like this got in touch with Al Queda?

    You have to remember that half of them have criminal records and feel that they were entrapped and/or unfairly prosecuted. MIND YOU - these same people are all about conservatives being prosecuted though.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
