Posted on 11/27/2010 8:11:54 AM PST by Baynative
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Federal agents in a sting operation arrested a Somali-born teenager just as he tried blowing up a van he believed was loaded with explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, authorities said.
The bomb was an elaborate fake supplied by the agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said.
Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him.
Yelling "Allahu Akbar!" Arabic for "God is great!" Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors.

Sure... let more of them in here.
Getting closer to home...
Another OBAMA DHS manufactured story.
When will we start profiling and targeting the Amish?
This country is being run by nuts who want to see Americans killed, just so that they can stay in power.
Wag the dog - Obama style
Another blond, blue-eyed Swedish immigrant.
there is a reason we need borders and they need to be enforced. we are not all the same. there are people out there who mean to do us harm. my brother told me where I live is a bad place. where he lives is where this just came down.
I’m more scared at how everyone is able to post 13 minutes into the future.
The Amish are leaving Indiana and Ohio and branching out. Here we see one in Oregon.
Looks like a Norwegian Grandmother to me. ;-)
John F’n Kerry was right. This terrorist thing is just like prostitution or vandalism....and treated the same. Will this little Amish boy get sent to Gitmo? I doubt it under the Holder ‘Just Us’ Department.
OK so are any of the reporters going to admit this guy is an Islamic ???
The system worked. /s
Too bad there isn’t any commonality or ideology linking all these attempts to kill innocent people.
Since we can’t see a pattern here we must consider every human a suspect, even 3 y o children or 80 y o grandma’s
If only there were a way to put together a list of common traits and perhaps investigate those people first,. if only ........
it’s well past time to quit the political correctness, tell CAIR to go to hell and start profiling.

Piss on islam and its prophet(May pig shit be upon his head).
Piss on obama, too.
It Should read “Police Shoot and Kill Terror Suspect”.
My sister is in downtown Portland OR a lot! She was also frequently in the Home Depot near DC where the Islamist sniper nailed one of his victims. I suspect that more and more Americans are being personally touched by these attacks whether successful or thwarted and wondering why the FBI can profile for months in advance (well, establishing probable cause, but obviously keeping a close eye) to prevent these bomb attacks, but more aggressive profiling can't be employed in airports.
Do we have to wait for an overt act by these noobie terrorists to establish probable cause when it is obvious that being Muslim establishes probable cause that a person has been exposed to terrorist ideology in the words of the Koran justifying and requiring a higher level of law enforcement scrutiny?
Why are there any of them in this country? They can’t be trusted even after they become citizens.
This was not a Jewish boy from Brookyln, NY? I thought that all Jews like all Amish from Iowa were terrorists.
The story says he is an American citizen. He should be strung up for this.
It started with Sirhan Sirhan and RFK, if not before!
Is this going to be another “teaching moment?”
Mohamed Osman Mohamud...of the singing Osman family of Somalia (The Doudy and Marwi Show).
Sirhan was manipulated by mind control(West), these other guys it’s just regular CIA & FBI.
I love the “teenager” stuff.
Yeah, he’s just like Dobie Gillis. He only did it to get noticed by Marsha Brady.
Oh Lord. I am again reminded that “Our Diversity Is Our Strength!”

Read “Nemesis” by Peter Evans. Evans is a widely respected English reporter.
The book lays it all out.
My apprehension is due to your grandmother having her breasts rubbed by a TSA agent in the Detroit Airport.
In fact, it pisses me off.
I would feel much safer if they took this kid and waterboarded him for info and then shot him in the head.
I have suspicions of my own in this vein. We had the Islamonutball here in Dallas who wanted to blow up Fountain Place, a big building downtown. They can’t all be dumass enough to try and buy their explosives from the FBI. It’s the ones out there who aren’t stupid that worry me, and you know they are among us.
Dang! Fooled again! I would NEVER suspected someone named Mohamed Osman Mohamed to pull such a trick. I had my money on the 80 year old grandma using crutches! Fooled again! Sarc!

Comment from Oregon Live site: “Ya, except in Portland, “street justice” means that we buy you a new pair of Birkenstocks and a rainbow bumper sticker. Ohh, and a fresh bag of granola to help you on your way.”
Actually, if you read the story closely, this kid had reached out to terrorist types. I think that is what drew him to the attention of the FBI, not profiling. It would be nice indeed if the FBI was profiling Somali immigrants, but I wouldn't cite this story as evidence that they are.
Profile the Quakers.
Let me guess. Andreas' Fault.

What you said.
“This defendant’s chilling determination is a stark reminder that there are PEOPLE even here in Oregon who are determined to kill Americans,” Holton said.
Not “people;” Muslims.
some posts by liberal at other forums LOL
Well, yay, this guy is a jerk and would participate in mass murder; but like several of these “terrorist” sting operations the past 5 yrs, would not likely have created the plan without being coaxed into doing so.
What seems to be the MO of these FBI “operations” is the following;
Some loudmouth is heard boasting in a bar , or on the internet, that he hates Americans and would be a Jihadist if he had the chance.
Someone within earshot calls authorities.
The FBI sets up an undercover operation and casually runs into this guy, usually of low intellegence, and over time befriends him and gains his trust.
The undercover “friend” suggests a bombing and lures the “jihadist” into a cooperative act of terrorism.
The undercover guys make the false bomb and assign the “jihadist” to be the driver, or lookout, etc.
The fake operation is carried out, and the low intellegence “jihadist” is arrested for attempting to commit a terroritst act.
This type of low-intellegence operation has been carried out several times during the Bush and Obama adminstrations; I believe at lease once in NY (Bronx) and once in Miami. It supposedly makes the FBI, etc. look “good” and appears as it they are stopping terrorist acts.
But, as noted above, none of these type of terrorist acts would have occurred unless they lured some jerk, albeit one with outwardly hateful HOPES, into THEIR plan.
It appears the only purpose of these operations is to feather the FBI’s own nest.
Bronxx’s point is that these people wouldn’t have committed these crimes if it were not for the work of the FBI. In other words, the FBI gives them enough resources and planning to make something happen. Without the FBI’s help, there would be no crime, or attempted crime.
I think Baraq should pardon him and sponsor @ Harvard.
Sounds like a Democrat success story in the making to me.
Just heard it reported on the radio:
"...an islamic terrorist shouting " allahu akhbar..."
The Bush family is doing the best they can. The Somalians are one of their favored groups.
