Skip to comments.Obama Admin Blows It Again? Person of Interest in Times Square Bombing "Familiar" to Investigators
Posted on 05/03/2010 5:46:41 PM PDT by kristinn
CBS News is reporting the Pakistani-American allegedly tied by forensic evidence to the Times Square bombing attempt last Saturday is "familiar" to the Obama administration:
A source told CBS News that investigators are looking at a possible suspect, a Pakistani American, in the botched car bombing incident near Times Square. The source said forensic evidence uncovered in the vehicle led them to a Middle Eastern mans name that was familiar to counter terrorism investigators.
Fox News reported the Obama administration knows the person of interest recently returned from Pakistan:
Federal authorities have identified a person of interest in Saturday night's Times Square bomb attempt -- a naturalized American citizen who was in Pakistan for several months and returned to the United States recently, investigative sources told Fox News.
...Sources say that evidence includes international phone calls made by the person of interest, who has not been identified publicly.
The Obama administration's familiarity with the person of interest is in keeping with recent failures by the Obama administration to stop terror attacks on American soil by those known to the administration to have suspected ties to overseas Muslim terrorist elements:
Fox News, June 2, 2009:
A 23-year-old convert to Islam with "political and religious motives" killed a soldier just out of basic training and wounded another in a targeted attack on a military recruiting center in Arkansas, police said.
The suspect, Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, reportedly had been under investigation by an FBI joint terrorism task force after he traveled to Yemen and was arrested there for using a Somali passport. The probe was in its early stages and based on Muhammad's trip to Yemen, according to ABC News.
While there, Muhammad a U.S. citizen from Memphis who is a convert to Islam and was previously known as Carlos Bledsoe studied jihad with an Islamic scholar, Jihadwatch.org reported.
Muhammad told authorities that he approached the recruiting center in Little Rock by car on Monday and started shooting at two soldiers in uniform, according to a police report.
ABC News, November 9, 2009:
U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that (Fort Hood massacre terrorist) Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with an individual associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.
Washington Post, December 27, 2009:
A Nigerian man charged Saturday with attempting to blow up a U.S. airliner on Christmas Day was listed in a U.S. terrorism database last month after his father told State Department officials that he was worried about his son's radical beliefs and extremist connections, officials said.
The suspect, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was added to a catch-all terrorism-related database when his father, a Nigerian banker, reported concerns about his son's "radicalization and associations" to the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria, a senior administration official said. Abdulmutallab was not placed on any watch list for flights into the United States, however, because there was "insufficient derogatory information available" to include him, another administration official said.
Is the Times Square bombing attempt another example of the Obama administration's failure to connect the dots and stop yet another terrorist attack on American soil on their watch? So far, the evidence does not look good for Obama and his administration.
Wanna bet that somehow this Pakistani is related to someone 0bama knew when he was at Occidental College?
One of these days, his Pakistani connection is going to come tumbling down around his head and no one, from Bill Ayers, George Soros, the Emanual Twins or anyone else is going to be able to salvage the Usurper. He will go down in flames.
Well, they don’t want to “connect” dots. As well you know.
So just hang on everyone for the rough ride ahead.
Not to worry. “Butch” from DHS is on the job.
>Wanna bet that somehow this Pakistani is related to someone 0bama knew when he was at Occidental College?
We'll save billions with gov't run health care too. Dopes. THROW EVERY BUM IN CONGRESS OUT!
Son of the cross-legged guy on the couch with Obama during college??
Or how about that there exists a photograph somewhere of this terrorist with Obama?
hell yeah! I'm game; lay some tin foil on me...
Maybe the LA Times is hiding that too
Oh, the left is going to be downright distraught.
I took a gander at some of their forums after the incident (DU in particular), they were very excited about the possibility that this could be some sort of right wing domestic terrorism.
This whole Pakistani American connection very clearly stinks of Islamic radicalism. The left will be deeply saddened by this turn of events.
I knew we knew this guy. As soon as they said there was a lot of forensics...I knew they had him in a data base.
The list, ping
I was over there, too. They were dying for it to be a Tea Party operation.
Maybe Obama’s administration know the perp because he might be a protege of that Pakistani soulmate guy who sat close to Obama on the couch during his early college days in Los Angeles. This Time Square perp’s trip reminds us of Obama’s own trip to Pakistan during college in violation of U.S. ban on travel there. This Times Square fellow is a naturalized citizen. Obama’s citizenship status is not at all so clear.
Well Pakistanis do drink a lot of tea so the whackadoodles at MSNBC will claim they were technically correct to assign blame to tea people.
oh boy! The truth *is* stranger than fiction!
You watch... they’ll say “but no one was hurt, so any perceived failures don’t matter”.
May that day come very, very soon.
“The Case of the Missing Muslims”
From the article:
“Where are the Muslim men from Islamberg?”
“The answer comes from a heavy-set woman in a long black burka who stops to check her mail box. The men all gone, she says in halting English. All in Pakistan.
Crosslegged guy on couch is unmarried faggot.
That’s ‘pok-ee-ston’ to YOU, pleb. ;-)
I pick up something else.
Someone has to report it first.
the Connecticut owner of the vehicle told them he had sold the Nissan SUV last month in an unrecorded sale to an “Arabic or Latino looking man” in his 20’s or 30’s, for a few hundred dollars in cash.
If the Perceived Potential PERP is a MUSLIM, its clear that the Authorities have been directed by the OBOZO HUSSEIN MUSLIM LOVEFEST ADMINISTRATION to leave HANDS OFF or Loose Your JOB!!
“Familiar” is a strange word to use. It implies previous contact, or relationship with someone. Now, who would that someone be??
‘Able Danger’ ‘familiar’ perhaps?
when it rains it pours
I have a feeling this is going to be another PC encounter like Hassan at Ft Hood.
Gawd. I work under an operations manager who hopes and dreams this will be pinned on those “violent” conservatives. He asked about it twice today: “What’s the news say about this “white guy McVeigh” clone seen emerging from the SUV and changing his shirt while casting “furtive” glances.
Note that for the first two days after the TERROR ATTACK, The WHITE HOUSE directed to the MSM Puppets that it was a White Male, clearly trying to make it an attack by their alleged Right Wing Extremists which is an OUTRIGHT LIE!!
They must have known VERY early who this is...and that means everyone has been lying through their teeth.
One of the officials tells The Associated Press that the potential suspect is a man of Pakistani descent who recently traveled to Pakistan.
The officials say the man is a Connecticut resident who paid cash weeks ago for the SUV parked in Times Square on Saturday and rigged with a crude propane-and-gasoline bomb.
Edited on Mon May-03-10 07:07 PM by peacetalksforallObama haters. Lion = Africa King = President Performers = Black Americans (mostly)? (I haven't seen the Lion Kingm but the trailer for the stage show included two performers who could be thought of as Obama and Michelle. Perhaps a white supremacist got the idea watching his children watch the DVD? I may be way off about what is in the story, but the two words Lion and King say plenty).
Is there information about the timer - the time it was set to go off -was there any indication that it was set to go off when the performance ended? Or while the ticket holders would be entering?
International terrorists? If it were International terrorists, would they park in front of the theatre where the Lion King is being performed in order to make it look like it was American terrorists?
Why did they pick that spot? Just because there would be people there. I think it means plenty.
Then again, it could be the take-out group of the CIA - the ones with plenty of e xperience setting up bombings in the Middle East, Cuba, Washington, DC. etc.
Firecrackers and Fertilizer in Manhatten - probably not the CIA. On the other hand, if they wanted to make it look like it was a McVeigh type person and not really want it to go off, but to use it to say it was Iranians- it could be the CIA or Pentagon or Mossad.
I hope they don't focus all their attention on Moslem (or Mexican) killers. Think us.
“...everyone has been lying through their teeth.”
Yep. Obama did say he would ‘hang’ with the Muslims. I would hope that literally.
What the heck is “familiar?”
Oh my. They’re serious. Seriously deluded.
.....yeah....and giving the miscreant a couple of days to cover his tracks and dissapear....
Anything but the obvious answer.
See my post 29...I thought it was an unusual word for the situation...
Yeah, how much?
The perp was obviously not concerned about the forensic evidence left in the vehicle because he assumed that the bomb would work. IF the bomb had gone off as planned all the evidence would have been incinerated.
So, the balding white guy, changing from a long sleeved t-shirt to a short sleeved on a warm night (shocking, I know) is off the radar now?
Jeez.......we are in sooooo much trouble with these fools!!!
Or eventually someone is removed from the equation...
During Lemon’s segment on CNN this evening while running the story and tapes of the “white guy”, the question “what do you think of the TEA Parties? xxx-xxx-xxxx” was scrolled along the bottom of the screen.
It’s interesting to watch and read what the Obamabots are taking in as gospel.
It was such a good fit with the statement about Hispanics being harassed when they take their kids out for ice cream with the Rev Al singing a chorus of RACIAL PROFILING in the background.
BTW, has Obama made any statement at all about this?
