Of course. Foreign nationals who wear camoflage, talk about bombs, and disrupt transportation networks are not the droids were looking for.
Times Square bomb, a misunderstanding, too, huh?
Yeah, right. He was “too scared”. Everyone else gets off the bus, but him??? What did he think was going on? Give me another story.
Bangor .....I dont even know her !
FOX just reported that the woman that called 911 heard this guy say “bomb”....now, all of a sudden he can’t speak English....someone on the bus should have slapped the crap out of him just for the h*ll of it....
“a foreign national”
Well, heavens forbid that we should indulge in hate thinking or profiling, but curious minds want to know.
What country is this person a “national” of?
Don’t these reporters realize that readers are curious? In a sense it doesn’t matter, but I remember a time when we could have said this was a dumb kraut or a crazy frog eater, or whatever, and that would have been taken in the humerous spirit in which it was intended. The frog eaters had equally humorous slang about us. Now I can hardly say it without sounding like a bigot.
Now it’s just close down your mind and shut up, or you’ll be arrested for a thought crime. But was this a Somali, a Muslim, a frightened South Sea Islander, a tourist from Prague, or what?
