Earlier this week it was reported that the Obama White House removed confessed terrorist Faisal Shahzad from the Department of Homeland Security travel lookout list sometime after Barack Obama came into office.
Terrorist Faisal Shahzad had substantial connections to the Taliban, reached out to the Taliban, was influenced by Yemeni terror leader Anwar al Awlaki, made at least a dozen return trips to Pakistan since arriving in the United States in 1999, and he bought a one way ticket with cash to Pakistan.
Now we find out that he was blogging and asking for jihad as far back as 2006 but that the Obama Administration took him off the terror watch list anyway.
Terror expert Walid Phares weighed in on the confessed Times Square bomber today in an interview on FOX News:

I’ll check with the usual suspects and mail you.
We’ll start profiling them after it’s too late. Perhaps it already is.
It has not happened in the history of this nation that its very survival is in jeopardy because of one very well defined national subgroup. Yet, we continue letting them in and ignore the danger they pose. Is this all done intentionally? Is there no congresscritter with enough spine to bring this subject matter up for discussion?
It must be assumed that they don’t much care for the future of their children.
From links at the article:
FOX News reported: FoxNews.com has uncovered several dozens of postings by a man named Faisal Shahzad on radical Islamist Salafist websites devoted to a variety of different jihadist sects.
Experts suspect this is the same Faisal Shahzad whom authorities have charged with plotting to explode a massive car bomb in New York on Saturday. If so, then he has been educating himself on the Internet for years on the legitimacy of holy war.
Shahzad visited numerous websites devoted to ideological discussion of Islamism and Shariah law. His apparent online posts date back to at least 2006 three years before the Times Square suspect became a naturalized American citizen.
If the person on these websites is indeed the suspected bomber, the postings show that he was intellectually thinking about engaging in jihadism for a few years, said Dr. Walid Phares, director of the Future Terrorism Project at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. Knowing that, the ideology of jihadism often has inspired violence and terrorism
These can be coined as Islamist Salafist websites where lots of material is posted, including theological, ideological and political texts and blogs, Phares said, noting that he saw discussions about fatwas, jihad and other Islamist causes on these sites.
The FBI seems to be able to apprehend people exchanging kiddie porn on the Internet why not a similar effort for terrorists?
Obama thinks his Muslimism will help him persuade the Muslims to behave.
Congresscritters are missing more than spines. It seems that Franklin Graham is the only man left in this country who dares to speak the truth.
Times Square Bomber was Known Internet Jihadi
We found traces of people named "Faisal Shahzad" all over the internet, and even some using variants of the Times Square bomber's email address. Some of them on forums which seemed to be sympathetic to Salafi jihadism, and others? Not so much. In fact, one "fshahzad" seemed to be arguing explicitly against the Deobandi - Hanafi Sunni branch of Islam favored by the Taliban. Unfortunately both Faisal and Shahzad are very common names.
But I didn't find the posts at The World Islamic Mission Fourm discussed by Jim Hoft and cited by Fox News here. I'd be very interested in seeing what he posted, but as I'm on the road I'm unable to do the research myself and would appreciate it much if someone could send a link.
And what more can I say than Jim already said? Other than that expressing jihad sympathies on the internet ought to be considered prima facie evidence of intent to break the law. Someone like that not only should not have been allowed to become a citizen, but also should have been under close watch.
Further, if he was expressing jihad sympathies back in 2006, then Shahzad lied on several INS forms. Whether or not Sen. Lieberman's idea of stripping citizenship from jihadis ever comes to fruition or not, lying on INS forms is a felony and is grounds to have his citizenship revoked.

Thank you very much for the information GV.
The intention of the homeland security apparatus under the Regime and its enablers is to identify mythic white American terrorists that simply do not exist while PROTECTING Arab/Muslim terrorists that DO exist.
While Shahzad was waltzing unscathed through the airport, whites at every counter were being pulled out of line, wanded, their purses rifled, thier property seized, even their mouths examined. It is billions and billions of your money being spent on a charade in which you are harassed and the terrorists get through.
Welcome to the Gulag.
Wow...I had no idea of the connections...haven’t done my homework on this. I’ll tell you, with this Administration it seems there is just soooo much happening and so many insane changes going on, it’s difficult to stay abreast of all of it. As intended, I’ll bet.
**Faisal Shahzad Was Blogging on Terror Websites Since 2006**
I’m surprised the WHITEHOUSE hasn’t said that about US!!
The list, ping
It's obvious he is willfully assisting in the socialist destruction of our Constitution ... but I mean, I believe he is facilitating people and acts like this.
We can only guess what his true goal is. His actions over the last year and a half make your assertions seem more than plausible.
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
“You could start with the person who decided not to inform all the airlines about this guy. I cant remember the details on this but a decision was made.”
That’s a good point. If it hadn’t been for an alert customs’ agent, he would have gotten away.
There is a movement to create a world-wide Caliphate.
Thanks nit. I guess they are so busy watching ‘us’ and other innocent people that they miss the terrorists websites!!!!!!!
