An Islamic terrorist named Faisal Shahzad is the Time Square bomber according to media reports. He is Muslim of Pakistani heritage with dual citizenship in the United States, a registered Democrat in the state of Connecticut who may be an Obama donor. He was recently naturalized as a U.S. citizen under the Obama administrations lenient open door policy.
Shahzad Faisal as identified by NBC News, or Faisal Shahzad as identified by U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, is a U.S. citizen of Pakistani origin. He was arrested at JFK airport in New York trying to flee the country back to Pakistan via a connector flight to Dubai, India on flight UAE 202. He was taken off the airplane sitting on the runway, promptly read his Miranda rights, and presumably went silent.
Obamas policy of treating enemy combatants as common criminals has been much criticized outside of liberal intelligentsia. At least they got their man, but the free lawyers that us taxpayers are giving him will assure very little intelligence is gathered in this case.
The Obama Justice department has caused furor within law enforcement circles for being soft on terror. The method of apprehending this terrorist will simply increase the volume and scrutiny. The public asks why are terrorists getting arrested for criminal prosecution rather than detained and shipped to Guantanamo for military tribunals. Despite bad PR generated by liberal college professors and their allies, detaining terrorists in Guantanamo was one of the good ideas by the Bush Administration for U.S. security interests.
Faisal Shahzad was naturalized April 17th 2009, one of the early beneficiary of Obamas liberal immigration policy that threw open the borders to treat all countries of origin alike. Two months later he was back in Pakistan, presumably meeting and plotting with terrorist allies there.
The slow motion war by Islamic fundamentalists marches on, unrecognized by the American political establishment, either through gross incompetence or pacification of radical voting groups for political expediency. Our leaders seem deaf and dumb to the threat against American interests and freedom.
Faisal Shahzad is a typical example if the charges are true, one of many who have attempted to cause terror among the populace, by lighting shoe bombs, underwear bombs, or blowing up cars in crowded urban centers. The current administration seems largely indifferent to the threat.
Faisal Shahzad had apparently been placed on the do-not-fly list earlier in the day, so a match was made against his passport when he tried to board an international airplane flight. This is a good win for the department of homeland security. Well leave the incompetence at preventing the attack for others to analyze.
Leads were easy in this case. A naive attempt was made to cover up the vehicle identification number on the Nissan Pathfinder loaded with explosives, by removing it from the inside door panel, but the number was left on the engine block. In addition, the purchase was made via CraigsList which left an electronic trail.
This is clearly a developing story for which more information will be forthcoming. We are still researching to understand if Faisal Shahzad was an Obama campaign donor. The Muslim community in the U.S. overwhelmingly supported the presidents 2008 election run. Stay tuned.
The usurper's fault!
how upset is the media? no rightwing, Christian, gun toting, confederate flag carrying conservative
Everybody was saying that the perp was a white guy, a anti big government white guy. It turns out to be a muslim; but a naturalized American Citizen....yeah right. We are infiltrated, not that that is new news or anything but America has to wake up.
There is great gnashing of teeth and waving of arms.
So he became an American LEGALLY but still chose terrorism. That means we should embrace ILLEGAL aliens since they will not become terrorists! /s
How convenient - been an American Citizen for a year, so I guess he will be given a lawyer and all the “rights” as regular citizens. Didn’t anyone check this guy out before he was given the blessing of becoming an American Citizen?
In my opinion, this goes straight to the heart of the need for immigration reform, both legal and illegal.
Close the damn borders and do a better job of looking in to the pasts of would be immigrants.
“Faisal Shahzad had apparently been placed on the do-not-fly list earlier in the day, so a match was made against his passport when he tried to board an international airplane flight.”
According to the WaPo he was on the plane on the runway and they brought him back. Do-not-fly maybe but it wasn’t do-not-board.
Religion of Pieces.
BLOOMBERG SAYS BOMBER COULD BE HEALTH CARE OPPONENT
[Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone.
If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesnt like the health care bill or something. It could be anything, he said.]
Whadda wanna bet he’s a “teabagger”?
Coulda been a martian too, chances were it was a muslim though.
