And, of course, the Obama administration will use this as yet abnother excuse to monitor and record the activities of law-abiding Americans.

Big Brother never misses any pretext to tighten his grip on the proles.

Matters not.

The MSM has already decided that Muzzies didn’t do it.

Some right wing wackos did.

And thatttttt’s the twuuuuth!

MSM: “We’re here to hire you when you absolutely, positively are so without ability that you cannot even go into politics.”

There’s a fight at each hockey game, so they should be very scared. I heard someone speculate when we will start playing “Cowboys and Islamofascists”....

Reminds me of what happened at the stadium in STILLWATER OK a few years back.

Anyone remember when the bomb went off outside there?

Didn’t the guy blow himself-up on a bench outside the stadium? It was a messy pic, as I remember.

muslim’s take credit for their acts of evil because it is a recruiting tool and a money raiser. They want the publicity that the American media would give them..

I remember some stories about Muslim students being involved but it morphed into a non-story.

I can't remember the result of all that. I can't even find a link to the story.

There is a good deal of cowardice in attacking the civilian population as the American public may become enraged(if there is anything left inside, a debatable proposition.)

The real challenge would be the media and politicians who have bodyguards and security advisors beyond all belief making it a real challenge. An added bonus resulting from attacks on our societies aforementioned vermin would be the unexpressed public approbation.

“Al-Qaeda Propagandist Called for Attacks on Sports Events”
April 16, 2013
By Patrick Goodenough

SNIPPET: “Al-Suri, a Syrian-born jihadist whose proper name is Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, is credited with authoring a 1,600-page online propaganda treatise entitled “Call for Global Islamic Resistance.”

He was captured in Pakistan in late 2005 and turned over to the U.S. custody. Wanted for plotting jihad against Syria’s Assad regime, he was then handed over to the Syrians.

But Syria reportedly released him in late 2011, a step experts speculated at the time was a signal to the U.S. government that Damascus’ counterterror cooperation was over because of its support for the anti-Assad opposition.

Al-Suri, who holds joint Syrian and Spanish citizenship, is wanted by Spain for alleged involvement in the 2004 Madrid train bombings that killed 191 people, and is the subject of an Interpol red notice.

His article on “the most important enemy targets” appeared in the ninth edition of Inspire, an AQAP publication which terrorism experts say has played an important role in cultivating and inciting English-speaking jihadists to plot attacks against Western targets.”
