The GOP will say it was a liberal staged attack to that this adminstration could thwart it.... Because making Obama a 1 term president is all that's important.

I would think Paul would blame the Federal Reserve for existing.

Bad guys were just trying to audit the fed.

With explosives.

The defendant thought he was striking a blow to the American economy. He thought he was directing confederates and fellow believers. At every turn, he was wrong, and his extensive efforts to strike at the heart of the nation's financial system were foiled by effective law enforcement

Translation: "We trolled this stupid loser mofo for all he was worth. He fell for the whole thing from start to finish."

Stopping someone from blowing up a branch of the Fed isn't mentioned in the Constitution.

OMG they didn't just catch the guy, they totally trolled him. "Oh sure these are explosives, not modeling clay"

Oh, sure, if you're one of those limp-wristed bleeding hearts who thinks the Constitution can mean whatever we need it to mean, as long as it's convenient.

I'm a Strict Constructionist. If the Founders wanted building bombings to be covered, they would have included that.

Soft on terror.
 
2012-10-17 05:23:34 PM  
It wasn't really prevention. This guy was given a fake bomb to "detonate" to prove guilt. It would be prevention if the FBI Jack Bauer'd the bomb with 3 seconds left.

The liberals are only trying to make it look like the Republicans staged it as to not look like they staged it themselves. Fedception.
 
2012-10-17 05:24:41 PM  
Oh great another one of these busts where the FBI plant starts asking who wants to blow stuff up. Some guy says yes so the FBI says well I know a guy that can build the bomb for you, lets get this ball rolling. Chances are on his own this would NOT have happened. If you need help being a terrorist then maybe terror is not for you.

In before "The Republicans will just say it was staged because herp a derp derp."



Oh.....too late.
 
2012-10-17 05:25:37 PM  
Funny how all these terrorist attacks that get thwarted end up being some schlub the FBI conned into buying fake explosives and pressing a button. Seems to happen every time citizens get uppity about sacrificing more and more individual freedoms in the name of security. The real disturbing question here, is when people stop buying into the soft scare tactics, are they going to let one of these go further to keep us ducking for cover?
 
2012-10-17 05:25:37 PM  
So what wire did they cut? Red or Blue??

When the pair arrived at the warehouse, Nafis began putting together what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb inside the van. Then they drove together to the target: The New York Federal Reserve Bank. As they drove, he armed the purported by putting together the detonator and the explosives, the criminal complaint says.

The van was then parked next to the bank. The pair went to a nearby hotel, where Nafis apparently recorded a video statement meant to be shown to the American public in connection with the attack.

"We will not stop until we attain victory or martyrdom," he said, according to the criminal complaint.

He then tried, several times unsuccessfully, to detonate the device, which was actually inert explosives.

Nafis was then arrested.


This is like Chris Hansen telling you to bring condoms and Smirnoff Ice with you to the 12 year old girl's house. You just shot reasonable doubt in the head and are now throwing grenades at your entrapment and coercion defense.

yup, the president has control over gas prices but not the FBI

/this is what republicans believe....unless the FBI screws up, then its obamas fault

Treygreen13: The FBI is now the Obama Administration?


Only when they fail, then its all Obama administrations direct and personal fault.

In a case like this where they succeeded though, its just the plain old FBI. Its also at that point just Obama taking credit for other peoples work.

/see, I am slowly learning how to 'think' like a Republican.

No, the only thing that's part of the executive branch are the people responsible for the State Department's security.

If the government didn't find him and troll him, he might have been able to get a real one through some other means.

Modern day Guy Fawkes

We should celebrate it every year by blowing stuff up.

Nothing says "party" like a failed bombing attempt at big money and power.

I see your point, which is why I don't understand the "Libya scandal" in the first place. However, do you actually think people would not have blamed Obama, if this bombing wasn't thwarted ?

Well, according to Tony Scalia, a rocket launcher is protected, as long as you can carry it.

uncleacid: The Feds supplied him with everything. Story over.


I got no problem with that. If you're stupid enough to embark on such a mission you should end up in jail. Especially since this isn't the first time the FBI "tricked" these sovreign citizens to try to put in practice what they spend hours every day sprewing on the internet.

Rustblade: Just in time for the elections.


Without any facts, derptards like Erik Erikson are already shaping the talking points for tomorrow, how this whole thing was setup by the Obama administration, etc.

2:1 odds, someone on Fox News tomorrow will ask "just how far *would* the Obama administration go to make them appear tough on terror? Just asking questions..."

If Bush could claim he prevented any attacks on America after 9/11, by the same logic this was prevented by Obama as well. Also, since he would be to blame for it like the GOP says he's to blame for Benghazi, therefore Obama prevented this.

glad they thwarted that attack and I can't blame or praise either one of those candidate j/os. But I guess that's the joke.

That's actually how they catch most of them - infiltrate a place known to attract extremists, identify someone that seems willing to take things further than just talk - provide him with (what he believes) are the means to carry out an attack and then bust him when he's about to go through with it.

Not really.

If I gave you a bunch of plastic explosive would you be able to drive to the Home Depot and purchase the proper gear to turn that into a bomb that can be remotely detonated?

He claims to have come to the USA in order to blow shiat up, and it seems likely that someone gave him training in how to make things go "boom".
