The underwear bomber technically reached his target and only failed because his weenie bomb didn’t go off as planned (The system worked according to Nappy)

No surprise . . . you have a muslim living in our White House and his rather overweight wife made a friendly visit to a suspect in the bombings . . . no explanation for whatever happened during her visit . . . and you have pro-muslim handlers of our sockpuppet so-called president . . . and you have a horribly anti-American and anti-Semitic administration from the top down . . .

So . . . what can we expect? Is anybody really surprised at all? I mean, really?????

Seems to me that the thing that is saving us is failure on the part of the terrorists.

Jihad advances. Totalitarianism advances. Disinformation advances. There is no counterpunch. The circle of fear, apprehension and submission/slavery tightens around freedom.

I forgot the UNC Chapel Hill attack in March 2006 and quite possibly many others between 2001 and 2008. Jihad has been happening for a long time not just in the last 5 years.
