shower_in_my_socks: ultraholland: Nafis wrote that he wanted to 'destroy America' and that he believed the most efficient way to accomplish this goal was to target America's economy,


If bringing down the WTC didn't destroy America, blowing the facade off the Federal Reserve building isn't going to farking do it either. These religious toolbags live in a fantasy world.


Well, it did destroy personal freedom for US citizens.

UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: And the moral of the story is when obtaining weapons of mass destruction from the internet, always make sure the explosives work.

I was wondering if somewhere along the way they didn't have a mini trial run in the middle of nowhere.

Bill_Wick's_Friend: uncleacid: The Feds supplied him with everything. Story over.

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".


Ummm.

What the hell, I am on enough lists anyway.

I could go to home depot and do that. Radio shack is better tho.

/has not had specific training.
//difficulty coould be incresed by actual "detonator" used to trigger (ie blast cap, or other)

We can take one out of the Dick Cheney playbook and falsely hang it all on Iraq. We could re-invade them and high-five the forces we left behind when we re-enter Baghdad.

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


This has got to be my favorite quote of this thread. It sums up the outrage of the ignorant quite succinctly.

It's another one of these "plots" where everybody in the "terror cell" except one guy is an FBI agent. Then they publicize the hell out of the arrest with breathless excitement and certainty that this moron really might have done something on his own.

Did it smell like peanut butter?

It would be funny if he realized what was going on and found another source for some real explosives and switched them with the fake. But then I guess he would probably fall onto a pile of bullets after that rather than have to deal with the paperwork and explanations.
 
2012-10-17 06:48:56 PM  

Launch Code: So I guess obama grabbed a nightstick, some cuffs and handled things. Just like he handled bin laden. Shame he wasn't able to handle the terrorists that overran our embassy, killed 4 Americans and slaughtered an Ambassador. Oh right that wasn't terrorists, it was angry movie critics. That was Hillary's fault anyway, stupid girls.


How do you propose an American President handle these situations? Are you suggesting that GW Bush would have been in the vanguard of the OBL raid, bullets blazing? Dude was afraid to go to Nam.

Idiot.

Fjornir: Treygreen13: I understand how the FBI functions in the Department of Justice.

I do. And my point here is that the FBI should be finding idiot terrorists like this and bringing them in regardless of who is in charge.

Our guy (Obama) doesn't need to convince me that he is capable - I already think he's doing a great job and he'll be getting my vote. My first vote for a Democrat for President. I don't want people to go rah-rah when something that is supposed to happen regularly does. And when the FBI announces they've tracked down a terrorist and arrested him, I don't wonder which president did that. I say, "Oh, good" and move on with my life instead of trying to make it a part of a presidential administration.

And I frankly don't care what Republicans say about it because I no longer identify with that dumpster-fire of a party. So pre-emptive politicizing what should rightfully be a routine process by the FBI is sickening to me.

mizchief: Spaced Cowboy: mizchief: Spaced Cowboy: UNAUTHORIZED FINGER: bhcompy: The price of liberty is that bad people have an easier opportunity to do bad things. I'm okay with that price. Hell, the founders of this nation were, too.

Quote of the day.

Except that he has no idea what liberty was supposedly intruded upon and is simply trying to find a way to make this some sort of Tea Party Obama stohl mah liburty screed.

You never had the liberty to go around trying to do illegal shiat without getting your dumb ass arrested. If I go around asking a bunch of people for drugs, and one of those people is a law enforcement agent, am I somehow immune to prosecution when they arrange a fake drug sale to bust me? No, and it has farkall to do with personal liberty and everything to do with not being a god damn idiot intent on breaking the law.

So people should be arrested just for wanting drugs? That is basically your argument. Seems like maybe we should spend our man power looking for people who actually have the drugs/explosives/etc. rather than setting up people who apparently can't do it on their own anyway.

Try again, princess. I bolded the part that you failed hard on. Just wanting drugs/explosives is slightly different than actively seeking them out from undercover law enforcement.

I highly doubt this guy was just sitting around minding his own business when the FBI called him up and said "yo dawg, you want some explosives?"

And what exactly is that difference?


What's the difference between sitting around in your house wanting some drugs/explosives and going out into the world and actively seeking them? That's your question? I have to actually explain this to you? I mean, seriously.... That's the level at which you're entering this conversation. Yikes, ok then.

Just to humor you, it's roughly the same difference between wanting to kill your boss and driving to his home and non-fatally stabbing him. I trust this needs no further clarification.

I agree, though I'm not voting for Obama. Going all "Rah rah" for the president because federal agencies that are going to do this regardless of who is in charge* is kind of like giving out gold stars and awards for showing up to work. I didn't realize that we held press conferences and awards shows for this shiat now. Wake me up when Obama himself jumps out of Airforce One and personally beats down a terrorist while single-handedly defusing a bomb. Then I'll be impressed.

pute kisses like a man: ProfessorOhki: The "explosives that he allegedly sought and attempted to use had been rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public," according to a statement from U.S. Attorney Loretta E. Lynch.

Couldn't you guys have used something that wasn't originally actual explosives? I mean, I'm sure you do good work and all, but how embarrassing would THAT be, you know?

hopefully, it is never the case that a clever bomberman, who buys all his materials from the feds, then secretly does whatever needs to be done to make them work... while the feds are waiting for him to set off the dummy explosion... boom.

I assume they gave him materials that could not have been exploded whatsoever. like, it was 1000 lbs of fertilizer, which mysteriously had no nitrogen in it, or whatever makes certain fertilizers prone to bomb making


Probably 1000 pounds of white powder borrowed from the DEA's evidence room.
Everyone had a good laugh about it when the 100lbs of powder was returned.

I think this provides a deterrent because it seems fairly obvious that 9 out of 10 people in Ney York who are saying "Death to America" are actually FBI agents hoping to snare a sucker.

On a related note, I wonder how many "terror plots" that we don't hear abut because they are just two agents trolling each other.

It would be the nitrogen compounds. Nitrogen compounds like to go boom, and the more nitrogen atoms linked together the more it goes boom and the more it wants to go boom. There are some that unless you make them under very controlled circumstances will go boom the second they're made.

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.
