I don't know why any terrorist wannabe would target something in NYC. Any co-conspirators you come up with are bound to be FBI or NYPD.

Mind of the North Star: 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 ?


Somebody would have blamed anyone and everyone.

I'm sure Obama personally did this himself, just like he killed Osama. LIberals are really reaching now. They have been watching this guy for months and arrest him the day after the debates....right. This is why Obama is dangerous, he turns everything into politics instead of just focusing on doing the right thing.

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


Pretty sure every single foiled plot since 9/11 except the shoe bomber has been this way -- they're all bumbling morons who find their comrades on the internet or at a mosque, but the guy is actually FBI/CIA.

CliChe Guevara: 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.


If anything, they likely overruled Obama's decision to give the man actual explosives, and ended up saving countless lives in spite of the "president" meddling in things he knows nothing about.

Treygreen13: The FBI is now the Obama Administration?


You think Romney and his surrogates would lay blame solely at the feet of the FBI if he succeeded?
 
2012-10-17 05:30:54 PM
So now we are gonna offer to pardon the guy that tried to rob the federal reserve bank when he rescues the POTUS after the POTUS's daughter crashes Air Force 1 amirite?

It always makes me chuckle when I hear stories about people buying fake bombs from FBI agents and then trying to detonate them. The opportunities for trolling seem so incredible. Heck even if the FBI stayed on the safe side and just put a speaker in there that blasted some Rick Astley when the terrorist tried to detonate, I'd be happy.

I'm fairly certain fox news would blame him if a dog farted in Portugal.

Politics aside, a sincere thank you to all the men and women who work their asses of to make sure people don't get killed. These people are true farking heros.
 
2012-10-17 05:32:03 PM
The guy wanted to blow up the Fed after the election, but the FBI pressured him into doing it sooner so Obama could get a win.

So yeah, this is all Obama's fault for politicizing stopping people from blowing up the Fed. Vote Romney.

I'm sure he has a 5 point plan

LoneVVolf: 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?


Why would they bother? The powers that be already know that as long as the TV doesn't give out and food is still available, most Americans aren't going to do shiat.

Rather then scaring us, I think they are doing it to impress us.

The Fed? Terror attack, or public service. You decide.

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

LoneVVolf: 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?


First they came and took the muslim schlubs and I said nothing, because I was not a muslim schlub...

I hope they release this guy's tape. It'd be a shame to deny everyone the chance to point and laugh.
 
2012-10-17 05:33:11 PM
This is essentially why terrorists don't really scare me. The vast majority of them are uneducated idiots. The really smart ones direct the idiots, and end up with Bond-Villain-esque results half the time.

He'll need a lot more points than that for a proper pipebomb.

tricycleracer: 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.


Except that he's a terrorist, so he falls under the Patriot Act. This man will never see the light of day again. Gitmo ftw.

Slartibartfaster: 12349876: If the government didn't find him and troll him

isn't that entrapment ?


Maybe, maybe not. We probably won't ever know. I don't have a problem entrapment as long as there isn't active encouragement. To analogize with prostitution stings, it's the difference between standing on the corner looking like a whore and waiting for johns to proposition you and walking around trying to seduce every guy on the street.

But remember when Obama does something good like getting OBL - He had NOTHING to do with it but when something bad happens it's ALL his fault.

Ahahaha, this could not be any more staged. How convenient.
 
2012-10-17 05:35:49 PM
I'm an Obama fan and I think the Libya comment from last night was out of line, but let's not say Obama prevented this attack. Obama gave the final approval for the bin Laden mission and he can take credit for that. Here it was the FBI and NYPD doing a good job and catching these guys before they have the chance to do anything on US soil.

They probably don't hear that very much, so let me say it again. Good job, FBI and NYPD. Thanks for all the work you do to stop guys like this.
 
2012-10-17 05:36:05 PM

rufus-t-firefly: hatelabs: 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.

Maybe the Republicans staged it so that it looked like the liberals staged it.


Maybe anarchists staged it to look like Republicans staged it to look like liberals staged it to look like terrorists did it.

Slartibartfaster: 12349876: If the government didn't find him and troll him

isn't that entrapment ?


As I understand it, they avoid entrapment by repeatedly trying to talk the suspect out of it (I'm not sure how earnestly they try, mind you). Whether or not he goes ahead with it is left up to his choice.
 
2012-10-17 05:36:44 PM
And by "the Obama administration" subby means the NYPD.

Isn't the FBI part of the executive branch, at least?

I guess now that the Navy Seals are part of the Executive Branch, why not the FBI as well?


Are you really this ignorant and blindly party loyal?

I wonder if this is another one whos bills were paid by the Feds while they groomed him for the big event.

You mean your question about which branch of government it fall under?

Did you fail government 101?
