Why does his name rise to the surface only when he attempts to bomb New York city? Same with recent 'underwear bomber' Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab. Same story! Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano certainly has no clue of the threat these fanatical Muslims pose. Why can't we put these citizens under surveillance before they try to kill Americans?
It seems administration is more interested in fighting the Tea Party movement than the Al Qaeda terrorist movement! That's a shame.
Al Qaida? Al CIA, duh?
In this latest case:
*Bystanders in Times Square witnessed a police drill prior to the bomb attempt. There was a bomb squad training operation ongoing
in NYC at the same time. (Sounds familiar).
*The fertilizer used in this "bombing attempt" question, phosphate based is not explosive.
*The man WAS on a no fly list
, but nevertheless made it on to the flight.
*This guy is alleged to have attended "terrorist training camp" in Pakistan, and had "explosives" training. yet he didn't even know that the fertilizer was incapable of either exploding, and was not even an oxidizing agent for use in a binary explosive bomb. Police first on the scene said that the bomb was "amateurish", incapable of exploding. Afterwards however, the message quickly morphed into "a deadly blast was narrowly avoided".
What's with this ongoing series on "bungled attacks" by "middle eastern dupes", who appear to make no attempt not to be caught... in other words, "go out of their way *to* get caught in the act"? Compare these to actual, real world terrorist groups, such as the Provisional IRA, ETA, and many others all around the world, which have (and had) a very consistent record of successful and deadly bombings. It's very easy
to build a bomb, explode it, and not get caught. When I was in my teens, there was a boy (he was about 16 at the time) on our street who used to invite all his school buddies to watch him set off all kinds of homemade bombs. It was scary. My bedroom windows rattled on many saturday afternoons during that summer vacation. (He now works on the register at a local supermarket ).
The "incompetence" and "ineptitude" regarding every aspect of pulling off bomb attacks, on the part of the what the media and both current and recent administrations has dubbed the "world's most deadly terror gang", defies belief. Get the point? I hope so. It's obvious.
These days, the most publicized bomb attacks are spectacular failures. Or coincide spectacularly with security drills and exercises. Or even consist of threats which cannot possibly happen... such as the deadly "composite liquid explosive" which scared the living hell out of air travelers and prompted a swath of absurd
carry-on restrictions. See link here.. makes for a few chuckles, if it wasn't so goddamned stupid
It's the media who is doing far more terrorizing than any bunch of hypnotized middle eastern drones and dupes could ever hope to achieve, or what their compromised state of awareness allows them to believe.
