Stupid headline of the day
In cruising through the news I found this incredibly stupid headline from the AP (story here):
NY car bomb suspect cooperates, but motive mystery
The motive is a mystery? To whom? Are you f**king kidding me? I double checked and yes, it wasn’t a parody from the Onion, but the venerable Associated Press.
A man accused of trying to detonate a car bomb in Times Square spent a decade on the path to respectability before abandoning his house in Connecticut and deciding to supplement his business degrees with explosives training in Pakistan, authorities say.
Faisal Shahzad, the 30-year-old son of a retired official in Pakistan’s air force, was charged Tuesday with trying to blow up a crude gasoline and propane device inside a parked SUV amid tourists and Broadway theatergoers. He was in custody after being hauled off a Dubai-bound plane he boarded Monday night at John F. Kennedy International Airport despite being under surveillance and placed on the federal no-fly list.
So this islamic terrorist spent 10 years on a “path to respectability,” chasing the American Dream, before deciding to set off a bomb in Times Square. Hint for the AP – the guy is an islamic terrorist and that is motive enough. Even incredibly dense US AG Eric Holder gets it partially right:
“Based on what we know so far, it is clear that this was a terrorist plot aimed at murdering Americans in one of the busiest places in our country,” Holder said.
But in the next paragraph the AP punts yet again:
A court hearing was canceled Tuesday in part because of Shahzad’s continuing cooperation with investigators, but authorities said they had shed little light on what might have motivated him.
Not one mention in the entire story of the words: muslim, islam or islamic. Where have these bloody morons been the last 25+ years? Don’t they know that there’s a war going on? Against islamic terrorism? By refusing to connect the dots, some the size of beachballs that virtually connect themselves, the AP and the rest of the state-run media are following the lead of this odious administration. An administration in denial of the real problem that threatens all of us – the whole world. Islamic terrorism.
Here’s a post (from Michelle Malkin) that describes how other islamic terrorists have exploited our weak immigration controls on their own “paths to respectability.” Fortunately Michelle can connect the dots that our government and state-run media refuse to.
America’s homeland security amnesia never ceases to amaze. In the aftermath of the botched Times Square terror attack over the weekend, Pakistani-born bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad’s U.S. citizenship status caused a bit of shock and awe. The Atlantic magazine writer Jeffrey Goldberg’s response was typical: “I am struck by the fact that he is a naturalized American citizen, not a recent or temporary visitor.” Well, wake up and smell the deadly deception.
Shahzad’s path to American citizenship — he reportedly married an American woman, Huma Mian, in 2008 after spending a decade in the country on foreign student and employment visas — is a tried-and-true terror formula. Jihadists have been gaming the sham marriage racket with impunity for years. And immigration benefit fraud has provided invaluable cover and aid for U.S.-based Islamic plotters, including many other operatives planning attacks on New York City.
OK dear comrade, Janet Incompitano, Eric Holder and the AP, I’ll make it easy for you. Here are the two dots that need to be connected: islamic + terrorism. Simple, no?
As former federal immigration official Michael Cutler warned years ago: “Immigration benefit fraud is certainly one of the major ‘dots’ that was not connected prior to the attacks of September 11, 2001, and remains a ‘dot’ that is not really being addressed the way it needs to be in order to secure our nation against criminals and terrorists who understand how important it is for them to ‘game’ the system as a part of the embedding process.”
Jihadists have knowingly and deliberately exploited our lax immigration and entrance policies to secure the rights and benefits of American citizenship while they plot mass murder — and we haven’t done a damned thing to stop them.
Islamic terrorists want to kill us and destroy our country because our very existence is an abomination to their sick, twisted interpretation of islam. They have virtually nothing to lose in this fight because to them it is an honor to die for the cause. We, on the other hand, have everything to lose. With the stakes so high you would think we would be doing more to protect ourselves instead of trying so hard not to offend islamic terrorists.
