Pete Hoekstra:Detroit terror suspect Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab may be connected to Ft Hood shooter
mlive ^ | 12/26/2009 | Aaron Foley

(snipped)

Hoekstra says that Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab may have a common link with the Fort Hood shooter that shot 13 people in November.

AFP, Dec. 26: There was a suggestion of links between Abdulmutallab and radical US-born Yemeni cleric Anwar al-Aulaqi, who had contacts with the US army psychiatrist accused of gunning down 13 people at a Texas military base last month.

"He may have been in contact with the American imam al-Aulaqi," Peter Hoekstra, the most senior Republican on the House Intelligence Committee and a member of Congress for Michigan, told AFP.

IMO, Pete Hoekstra's doing a great job of informing the public of the aspects of this attempted terrorist attack.

These Muslims need to be rounded up. WTF is going on? Why do they let them get on planes to come here? We ought to have Muslim free flights. I do not want to get on a plane with any of them.

Yeah, as I posted at the time of the Fort Hood shooting, and repeated at this news:

Now that Obama is in office, we are beginning to have attacks ON U.S. soil : which the "treat as law enforcement" approach is allowing to come to fruition.

Someone needs to investigate the rumor that Obambi has a prayer rug on Air Farce One.

If it's true -- time to impeach.

Cheers!

But...that can’t be true. My government already told me that Fort Hood wasn’t terrorism.

I can’t wait for this guy’s trial, likely to be held in Michigan. The ACLU will have a cow about the roughness of his handling and that he may not have been read his rights etc. I bet he will be out on bail by spring, with bail paid by Detroit area mosques.

The prayer rug issue you raise is a moot point. There’s clearly an effort on the part of this White House to cover this incident up and obstruct justice. The White House ain’t complying with Hoekstra.

Prayer rug maybe, but is there a ceremonial foot-bath in the main cabin, or lemon-chicken in the galley?

We must patiently await the results of Imam Obama’s Injustice Department’s investigation of the Ft. Hood murders before permitting ourselves to posit unseemly connections between Major Whats-His-Name and other Muslim terrorists. After all, the millstones of justice are known to grind slowly, very slowly, especially when a political agenda controls. /sarc/?

SSHHHHHHH! I'm trying to START one!

(Hint: rumors about Sarah's divorce from Todd, and 9-11 truthers are fair game, so why not this, when we already have Obama on video saying "...my Muslim faith" and being corrected by Stephanopoulos, bowing to the Saudi King, saying "America is not a Christian nation", and "one of the largest Muslim nations", and saying the call to prayer is one of the prettiest sounds on earth.

He traveled to Pakistan (not exactly a Roman Catholic country) purportedly using an Indonesian passport -- and went to an Islamic school as a child.)

Color me suspicous to say the least.

Cheers!

See here.

Think of the overt lies about 9-11 truthers, Trig Palin, "Bush lied, people died" etc.

There is far greater circumstantial evidence to make this plausible, than there is behind any of the lefty nutcase rumors.

And I'm doing the courtesy to explicitly put a /sarc> tag on mine.

Actually, I think it's time for a pork chop summit. Obummer needs to invite all the so-called moderate Muslim clerics, including Calypso Louis, to the White House and he needs to serve pork chops to everyone. I suggest the pork chops we exceedingly hot, so hot, that the fat will be able to give the Mohammedans a new brand since the old ROP(tm) has about run its course.

Something is strange. We’ve had attacks before and the government has gone out of its way to deny they were terrorism. They have downplayed all attacks prior to this.

Why are they playing up this one? Do they know something about other possible attacks.

Why would you think that a man named Buraq Hussein Obama, whose biological father and step father were both Muslims would have any special feeling or empathy for Islam? Are you suggesting that his childhood years in the Islamic country of Indonesia, where he attended a Muslim school and was endued with Islamic teachings would give him a deeper appreciation for Mohammedism? Bannish the unjust thought! Where is your sense of diversity and pluralism? Do you think that because Obama bent his knee and bowed his head in submission to the Saudi King, while the other world leaders and diplomats looked surprised and amused at the gesture, that Obama actually meant to venerate a Muslim King? Please, the logic of it all is killing me! I just don’t understand you folks who use common sense, logic and reason. After all, weren’t we taught to believe what we’re told and reject what our lying eyes see and our conscience believes?

8 years of zero attacks on U.S. soil after 9/11/01 - this was because the Bush Admin approach was to go after these pukes. Now, we have Obozo and the dims in control, whose view of the world is strikingly different. Folks, be ready to defend yourselves because this admin is not interested in defending the U.S. citizen - but, they are interested in bringing this country down with a financial collapse.

Detroit has a huge Muslim population so of course, the Left will poo pooh what Pete has to say. Every mosque and iman should be profiled. Period. No more PC excuses. If one more American dies from one of these Islamofascist terrorist attacks, I want Obama to have to explain why, how, and who allowed it to happen since he thinks these are all man made incidents.!!!!

Time to get excited. It’s been confirmed:

NW Bomb Planned by al-Qaeda in Yemen
The Blotter from Brian Ross News ABC ^ | Dec. 26, 2009 | RICHARD ESPOSITO and BRIAN ROSS

Posted on Saturday, December 26, 2009 2:01:37 PM by gandalftb

The plot to blow up a passenger jet was launched by al-Qaeda leaders in Yemen who apparently sewed bomb materials into the suspect’s underwear.

The suspect had more than 80 grams of PETN, a compound related to nitro-glycerin. Yesterday’s bomb failed because the detonator may have been too small or was not in “proper contact” with the explosive material.

Abdulmutallab made contact via the internet with a radical imam in Yemen who then connected him with al-Qaeda leaders.
