Skip to comments.Time Square Bomber a Democrat and Obama Donor?
Posted on 05/04/2010 10:17:41 AM PDT by Starman417
Still tracking down that news but one thing is clear: he wasn't a Tea Partier!
There are reports that Faisal Shahzad, the failed Time Square bomber was a registered Democrat in Connecticut and may be a donor to Obama's campaign.
This comes after the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg openly speculated that the bomber might be somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something." Coming on the heels of repeated warnings from Obama, Bill Clinton and others that Tea Parties might lead to violence it was only natural for libs to assume this attack may have been inspired by opposition to Obama. But like the other baseless charges in Obama's political repertoire, this one turned out to be false as well.
Homeland Security almost let terrorist slip away?
What's worse than the overt profiling of Tea Partiers is the sheer incompetence of the Obama Administration which nearly let Faisal Shahzad get away. While security at the JFK airport in New York City was busy patting down little old ladies, Shahzad boarded his flight to the Middle East, the plane had began to pull away from the gate and only at the last second was the suspect caught.

It would be interesting to find out how much he donated and where the money came from.
Will Obama invite him to the White House for a beer?....
I’m sure the Obama scrubbers are busy at work right about now.
This sounds like a teachable moment.....
yep. That's something that's been kept very, very quiet. 500 mill (or somesuch nonsense) in "grassroots contributions" that were done on the web, via CC, and completely untracked.
That's an enormous can of worms that I suspect BO would like to keep safely capped.
He donated to Palin! Attended all of her rallies and recently purchased “Liberty and Tyranny” by Levin. He also ghost wrote for Ted Nugents, “Ted, White and Blue”! Oh, and he’s yet to miss a tea party!
along with his birth cert.
You can tell elections are coming, Gibbs, Holder calling it ‘terrorist attacks’....
Elections are coming and they are in ‘damage control’ mode.
Say what you want about Obama, but our FBI and Homeland Security CAUGHT THIS GUY.
The car was bought with cash, stolen plates and they still tracked him down in time to nab him. Sure, it was close, like a good movie.
Give credit where it’s due.
I hear they have eight people in custody in Pakistan. Sounds like the movement against Obamacare has gone international.
Bloomberg can be such an idiot. He should just go back to being a RAT.
NYPD caught him. The Feds took over after the international link was exposed.
Is there a credible cite to the reference that he was a dem and a BHO contributor?
Actually it has been reported elswhere that they let him board the plane to see if he made any last phone calls and were monitoring him.
That sounds like a clever move since he had just gone through screening. They wanted to see if he tried to contact anyone.
They aren’t all incompetent. They found him quick enough for all they had to go on from an SUV bought on Craigslist for cash.
Good for them, then.
I don’t think law enforcement at any level let us down.
Trusting to luck is not a strategy for the competent.
Probably Obama met him when he went to Pakistan.
NYPD made the collar but Obama’s feds are questioning him? I don’t like the sound of that. Man, it would be great if a few ‘boys in blue’ had some time to work that punk over. He’d been singing like a canary . . . or crying like a pu$$y!
Small comfort there.
Like the Christmas shoe-bomber, this Muslim terrorist was caught only after the bomb was in place and ignited. Only failures in the bomb itself prevented hundreds of people dying a horrible death in each case.
In these last two Muslim bomb attacks in the U.S., Obama and his Homeland Security Department are batting ZERO in prevention. In both cases young Muslim men entered this country from known terror centers without problem and ignited bombs.
This is a terrible failure of the Obama administration, not something to be praised.
We got lucky the bomb didn’t explode. Sure.
It wasn’t “luck” that these departments did their jobs.
If they had overlooked this guy (ie. the 9/11 hijackers), you’d have a point. But blaming them for this would be like blaming a street cop for a mugging.
Prevention is not the issue here.
The shoe and underpants bombers passed through legitemate checkpoints where they SHOULD have been caught.
In this instance, can you think of one interception point that should have caught this guy?
Did he breeze through any checkpoints?
Did he pass any registrations or audits?
Did he buy any restricted materials where he should’ve been screened?
This was one guy with a (bad) plan and minimal opportunity to intercept him.
I don’t know about interception points, but like many Pakistanis he was fast-tracked for citizenship by the current administration.
It sounds to me like he flew to Pakistan, took part in training camps, got lots of money, flew back to the US, spent the money on bomb making materials and then got on a plane and tried to fly back. So.... maybe there was no point where he could have been nabbed ahead of time especially if no one is looking for this behavior... 9 years after 9/11.
This guy sure left a trail to be followed. Screw up or deliberate?
yep, it’s the UNI-BROW bomber.
And I’m not giving a pass to immigration or Obama, but the local/state/feds caught this guy and have already arranged the detention of 8 others.
If anybody failed here, I really doubt it was the cops at any level.
Thanks for the details. I was hoping it was that. I love our law enforcement, and tremendous kudos for NYPD.
Well, if he wasn’t a disgruntled white TEA person and healthcare protester,
....what is left...he must have been a friend of Obama.
This POS admits it. Thanks to Obama they no longer fear getting caught.
What will he get, a slap on the wrist and a beer chat at the WH?
Every time I hear Nanny Bloomberg speak, my earwax build-up increases 10-fold.
Every vote counts.
You may be right that they let him board the plane. I disagree that it was the right thing to do, though. Too many innocent people on the plane could've been hurt if there was a "problem" arresting him and/or those with him. That was unnecessary endangerment of civilians. I guess Zero and his minions care nothing for the "common" people, except their votes.
Everyone get all of the online evidence on this guy and post screenshots here for all to see. Before it’s scrubbed!
The street vendor saved the day! FBI and HS weren't there.
What group represents America’s biggest enemy, Muslims, Democrats or the liberal media?
Yes, I can think of two.
First, he was allowed to become a U.S. citizen, despite reports that he speaks very limited English and is from a country known for Islamic extremism. Individuals, especially males, from these countries need more rigorous background checks before being allowed to become citizens.
Second, young adult males traveling to Muslim terror centers, U.S. citizen or not, need intense screening when re-entering the country.
Unless, Obama can kill the story, it will come out that this guy has been in contact with other terrorists and received terror training while in Pakistan. Like the Christmas bomber, these guys are not working alone and Obama's administration has failed miserably in indentifying and tracking people who receive terror training off-shore.
He’s a hero.
Do you expect the FBI and HS to be everywhere?
Who conducted the investigation?
Who caught the guy at the airport?
Who caught his associates?
The system may have failed.
Immigration may have failed.
I’m sure that the administration has failed us at some point.
But I can’t see where any of the cops or agents failed.
Neither of those were controlled by the cops or the FBI.
Our administration, our “system” and our policies have surely failed us.
I mean hes accused hes arrested you know I dont want to convict him before its time to do so. Hes the guy authorities say is involved. But that being said I mean we know even in recent history you have the Haitari militia from Michigan who have plans to lets face it create terror.
Wrapped up in one neat paragraph: the liberal agenda against this country. The media are our (the nation's) enemy.
I pulled the quote from the Flopping Aces website.
Sorry: Contessa BREWER!!!!
I agree. Party ID and contributions should be easy to check with the state’s Sec of State.
Donations in Federal elections are readily accessible via several online databases, such as newsmeat.com. I’ve checked— nothing obvious from this guy.
Besides, other reports say he’s in foreclosure on his home. I rather doubt he’d be spraying money around at politicians under those circumstances.
Given that this person is a Dem, donated to Obama, and tried to set off a bomb in NYC, I'd say it's somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like freedom or the United States of America.
It won’t matter what the Democrat donation files say. Bernie Madoff was a HUGE Democrat fund raiser and contributor. Hear anything about it?
FBI did a good job apparently.
What specifically did HS do?...he even went thru security at JFK!!!
