Somali-born Mohamed Osman Mohamud thought he was serving Islam’s evil god by killing hundreds of innocent Americans at a Christmas tree-lighting celebration in Portland. Actually, all he was doing was walking into an FBI trap — and inspiring affection and spittle-spewing moonbattery among commenters at the largest liberal blog, Huffington Post. A few samples:
Look at this young man’s beautiful face. He could have been redirected to modeling instead of encouraged in terrorism by the FBI. What does that say about us?

How wonderful. Our entire intelligence apparatus is engaged in targeting a 16 year old Somalian named Mohammad, approaching him with fame and glory, wait till he is 18, teaching him how to build a bomb. Better yet build one themselves and detonate in remote area. Buy him a van, fill it with fake explosives. Get him a cell phone, give him a number to dial to explode the device in crowded and the arrest him.
That’s what can happen when you support brutal policies against an individual’s homeland; and the U.S. supported the Ethiopian invasion of Somalia, along with many other things that go completely unreported in the MSM.
I just feel terrible for his parents and family; our hearts and prayers go out to them.
ANOTHER “terrorist” manufactured out of whole cloth… the FBI only had to supply the time, the location and the phony bomb… then swoop in to save the gullible US citizenry from a scenerio THEY set-up and created.
Please make an attempt to educate yourself. Religious terrorism is not limited to one religion. Here you go: The Christian Militia plot against law enforcement
The FBI could encourage thousands of mentally disturbed individuals to enact their violent fantasies. This is a great make work program for informants, and a great way to enhance agents’ career prospects and to assure increased funding for the FBI.
Clueless Patsy Set-up by FBI in Christmas Tree Bombing Plot. The Global War On Terror mill needs a constant stream of patsies and dim wits to keep the charade in motion.
The FBI has hundreds of these muslim sleeper patsies. Whenever the public gets uppity about police state measures, they activate one.
Gotta keep the muslim terrorist phantom menace alive.
Good to know the FBI is keeping us safe by luring unstable youth into incriminating themselves, then busting them. I wonder how much this ”we’re fightin’ the terrists” PR theatre cost tax payers over 18 months.
And I am sure this attempted terrorist attack, by a Somali, has nothing to do with what the U.S. has done to his homeland, just like 9-11, and all the other acts of Islamic terrorism directed against us, had nothing to do with the brutal foreign policy America conducts within the Islamic world? I must say, I love sanctimonious Americans whose government is, and has been since WW2, the greatest purveyor of violence, to borrow a line from Martin Luther King, in the world ( the U.S. is literally responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people over the last 60 years) lecturing Muslims about violence!
When the FBI identifies these kids that feel angry and disenfranchised – wouldn’t resources be better spent getting them some help instead of encouraging and arranging for them to commit a crime? If you look at all the recent “plots” most were helped along by the FBI themselves. Is this OK?
So why do you think he did it? Has anyone asked what is motivating these individuals into attacking the US?
As a Black kid, foreign and Muslim, I can imagine him being on the receiving end of taunts and harassment, or just isolation. Or maybe he’s a sociopath. Maybe his mom didn’t hug him enough. Maybe people won’t stop asking him about Somali pirates.
This shouldn’t even be news, and the fact that the mouthbreathers are insisting this is validation of the efforts of our right wing anti terror campaigns is just insulting to those of us with anything resembling intelligence.
If america would learn humility then we wouldn’t have to worry about people trying to kill us, as it is, america’s lack of humility obligates people to kill us.
Take note everyone this is the right wing world view in action where we can manipulate people into serving the role of our boogeyman and thereby prove our usefulness merely by manufacturing an enemy.
Do you think that muslim kids might feel a bit more “American” if we weren’t reserving public spaces for christian-only ceremonies?
No, the threat was NOT real. It was fabricated. A poor minority was strung along by the FBI and then offered the tools and encouragement to do what they wanted him to do.
What’s worse, what this guy tried to do or what the teabagger who stumped the woman in the head did? I just wonder.…
One more pair:
My gratitude is immeasurable.… my daughter and granddaughter were at that tree lighting ceremony.
The bomb wasn’t real, so you were in no danger.
Relax, there’s no danger. Muslims are too cuddly to hurt anyone, and besides, when they kill us we deserve it for not being sufficiently moonbatty.
If anyone emerges more purely evil than Mohamed Osman Mohamud, liberals will fall on their knees and worship him.
