Ok, so, we have found yet another “peaceful” Muslim who wanted desperately to slaughter Americans. This time in Portland, Oregon.
PORTLAND, Ore.(MSNBC) — The Somali-born university student met with an undercover FBI agent in August at a Portland hotel and told him he had found the perfect location for a terrorist attack: the city’s annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony.
Mohamed Osman Mohamud told the agent that he had dreamed of carrying out an attack for years, and the city’s Pioneer Courthouse Square would be packed with thousands, “a huge mass that will … be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays,” according to an affidavit.
On Friday, Mohamud parked what he thought was a bomb-laden van near the ceremony and then went to a nearby train station, where he dialed a cell phone that he believed would detonate the vehicle. Instead, federal authorities moved in and arrested him. No one was hurt.
The case is the latest in a string of alleged terrorist plots by U.S. citizens or residents, including one at Times Square in which a Pakistan-born man pleaded guilty earlier this year to trying to set off a car bomb at a busy street corner.
OK, am I the only one that thinks that this swine should be shot in the head at our earliest convenience? As soon as we can determine where he was radicalized, and when, and once every bit of useful information has been gotten from him, let us be rid of him.
BTW, it must be noted that it seems the one that alerted authorities to this Jihadi-wannabe is Muslim. God bless them for fighting terrorism!
FBI agents say they began investigating after receiving a tip from an unidentified person who expressed concern about Mohamud. The Washington Post reported that the tip came from a member of the Muslim community.

Bluegrass Pundit has an ironic twist about how Portland, the target of this swine, had no use for the FBI five years ao
Portland, Oregon voters need to wake up and clean house of the left-wing leaders they have given control of their city too. The FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force that their leaders wouldn’t allow local police to cooperate with has saved possibly hundreds of their lives.
In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration’s conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key anti-terror initiative, the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. On Friday, that task force helped prevent what could have been a horrific terrorist attack in Portland. Now city officials say they might re-think their participation in the task force — because Barack Obama is in the White House.
Reading the FBI affidavit describing Islamist terror suspect Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s plan to bomb a Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland’s Pioneer Courthouse Square is a chilling experience. Mohamud, a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen who attended Oregon State University, told undercover FBI agents he dreamed of performing acts of jihad in which hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Americans would die. “Do you remember when 9/11 happened when those people were jumping from skyscrapers?” Mohamud asked the agents, according to the affidavit. “I thought that was awesome.”
Carol, of The Closet points out just how morally, and intellectually bankrupt lefties like Glenn Greenwald are. Somehow it is ALWAYS America’s fault!
The FBI is obviously quite pleased with itself over its arrest of a 19-year-old Somali-American, Mohamed Osman Mohamud, who — with months of encouragement, support and money from the FBI’s own undercover agents — allegedly attempted to detonate a bomb at a crowded Christmas event in Portland, Oregon.
Yes, at this point Greenwald is knee-deep in the Pit of Stupidity, BUT, fear not, he has his shovel digging deeper!
Greenwald should have stopped writing before he showed his hand. In Greenwald’s estimation it doesn’t really matter if Mohamed Osman Mohamud would have plotted to kill 25,000 Americans at a tree lightening service without the FBI’s encouragement. Had Mohamud planned and carried it all on his own it would still be America’s fault:
We hear the same exact thing over and over and over from accused Terrorists — that they are attempting to carry about plots in retaliation for past and ongoing American violence against Muslim civilians and to deter such future acts. Here we find one of the great mysteries in American political culture: that the U.S. Government dispatches its military all over the world — invading, occupying, and bombing multiple Muslim countries — torturing them, imprisoning them without charges, shooting them up at checkpoints, sending remote-controlled drones to explode their homes, imposing sanctions that starve hundreds of thousands of children to death — and Americans are then baffled when some Muslims — an amazingly small percentage — harbor anger and vengeance at them and want to return the violence. And here we also find the greatest myth in American political discourse: that engaging in all of that military aggression somehow constitutes Staying Safe and combating Terrorism — rather than doing more than any single other cause to provoke, sustain and fuel Terrorism.
Excuse me, Glenn, has abandoned the shovel, and rented a backho, so he can dig even faster! And Glenn, Doug Powers would like to remind you that YES, even useful idiots like you are targets of the terrorists fools like you bend over backwards to excuse!
A US Attorney reminds progressives that they are not off-limits:
“This defendant’s chilling determination is a stark reminder that there are people — even here in Oregon — who are determined to kill Americans,” Dwight C. Holton, U.S. Attorney for the District of Oregon, said in a statement.
Some of the liberals in Portland are described as deeply concerned at the potential carbon footprint this bomb would have left.
Gateway Pundit reports on “arson” at the mosque frequented by the little Jihadi. Two bets from me. First the Left will show more outrage over this “hate crime” than over the planned terror attack. Second, what are the odds that this “arson” was staged?
Michelle notes sort of a pattern among all these terrorists HMMMMM
If it’s Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, it’s just another day in the life of a true believer in violent jihad.
Yes: Violent jihad. Two words the current occupant of the White House won’t say together and about which he remains in stubborn denial.
Violent jihad. A fundamental tenet of legions and legions of Muslims worldwide — and untold numbers of homegrown and immigrant practitioners of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage here on American soil.
Be sure to read all of Michelle’s post, it is well worth your time.
