CHICAGO, ILLINOIS (BNO NEWS) – A Chicago, Illinois man was arrested on early Sunday for attempting to set off explosives in a crowded street, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Chicago announced on Monday.

Sami Samir Hassoun, 22, was arrested after Saturday midnight immediately after placing a backpack which he thought contained an explosive device into a trash can near a crowded street corner.

The arrest stemmed from an investigation conducted by the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF). Hassoun was charged with one count each of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction and attempted use of an explosive device.

Now that the Ishmalites live here the MSM can just identify them by their hometown. Avoids all that messy contradiction with the picture they're trying to paint.

Just a matter of time before they figure that pulling a “Beslan” is easier. But that would mean the end of most muslims in this country.

At first I just assumed this must be another of those Amish, but then I read this in the article...

Hassoun, a Lebanese citizen and permanent resident alien, expressed to an associate his desire to commit acts of violence in the city for both monetary gain and to cause political transformation in Chicago.

I don't think there are any Lebanese citizens named Hassoun that are part of the Amish. Now just how did he expect to gain monetarily from this attempted mass murder? Who pays for that?

Any guesses who would pay a Scots-Irish/Lebanese mass murderer? Just why was he expecting to profit for this?

Sounds like Chicago needs it’s community organizer back - things are getting a little out of hand without his wisdom to guide them.

Something smells here and it isn't coming from the trash can in which he place the faux explosives

How could he expect to gain monetarily from this terrorist act and what "political transformation" did he expect to gain?

Inquiring minds want to know, though the new, improved, PC FBI and the corrupt, lame stream media will do everything in their power from devulging any information which would put the practitioners of the cult-cum-"Religion Of Peace" in a bad light!!!

Or perhaps Iran or Syria. I wonder if we'll ever see a report on this guy again or if he'll disappear into the Holdren led department of injustice.

But that would mean the end of most muslims in this country.

No that would mean Homeland Security tasking armed guards to protect muslims from the evil right wingers with guns and clinging to religion. Any religion except islam. Every other religion is dangerous, except islam because it is the ROP.

Wasn’t it a couple of weeks ago that headless guy was found with a explosive in Chicagoland? It was in Evanston, if I remember right.

I know last year, lightbars (the bars with flashing lights on top of emergency vehicles) were being stolen in off police cars in Chicago.

Here’s a scenario for you. This guy sets off a bomb in crowd killing and wounding many people. A lot of emergency vehicles roll up on scene, along with members of media. The terrorists then sneak a bomb laden van on the scene that looks like a EMT vehicle because it has lightbars. Then the terrorists set off a bigger bomb killing many first responders.

Maybe that is what some terrorists have planned or maybe I just watch too many movies. In any case, there are strange goings on in the Second City.

I once rode with a cab-driver in Chicago that talked on the cell phone the entire trip, and sounded every bit like an America-hating jihadi terrorist.

Another incident crossed my mind too.

About a month or so ago, a man put down a briefcase at bus stop at a busy intersection in Columbus, Ohio and then ran away. Some alert passerby notified the police who ended up blowing the briefcase up. The news report said that Homeland Security and the FBI investigated the incident but there never was a follow up to the story.

I remember thinking at the time that incident might have been a dry run by terrorists. Sounds similar to this case.

While I agree it should, I hate to say it, but I don't think there's a whole lot more the muzzies can do to demonstrate the threat they pose to a civil society.
