Skip to comments.Suspect in Oregon Bomb Plot Is Called Confused [Mohamed Osman Mohamud]
Posted on 11/28/2010 6:04:19 PM PST by BunnySlippers
Mr. Khan and Mr. Day said several people who worship at the mosque said the FBI had knocked on their doors late at night on the day of Mr. Mohamuds arrest, but that none agreed to speak to agents.
People were finding cards in the doors that said FBI, Mr. Day said.
The mosque, the largest in Portland, has been the center of controversy before. In 2002, the mosques imam, Sheik Mohamed Abdirahman Kariye, who like Mr. Mohamud is a naturalized American citizen from Somalia, was arrested at Portland International Airport.
Prosecutors subsequently said that trace elements of TNT were found in his luggage, though those tests were later said to be inconclusive and he was not convicted of any crime.
Mr. Kariye did not immediately respond to a request for comment made through Mr. Day, but Mr. Khan reiterated that Mr. Mohamuds action were his own.
Several people who said they knew Mr. Mohamuds family said that they believed his parents had reported their son to law enforcement authorities, citing concerns that his views were becoming extreme. They declined to be quoted by name.
A law enforcement official, who was not authorized to publicly discuss certain aspects of the case, said investigators first became aware of Mohamud because of his alleged efforts to connect with Islamic extremists through email.
Soon after that they received a tip from someone who knows him, alerting them to what the official described as increased radicalization. According to the federal affidavit for his arrest, Mr. Mohamud at one point told undercover agents he had been betrayed by his family.

I would call maggots who fly airliners full of people into buildings in trade for 72 virgins “confused” also. That’s no reason to let them off the hook.
I bet a rope around the neck would really confused the bastard.
FAmliy clean up on aisle four.
The parents may have had enough sense to turn him in to prevent him from flying off to Pakistan to join the Taliban or get some training. Just like the Nigerian fellow..the Dad was hoping to save his butt.
I like your mind!
I’m not buying it.
Already, here in Oregon, the big stories are the mosque fire and islamophobia. Also, entrapment has been raised as a defense. Better that several dozen Christmas tree revelers had died. Sick
awwww..he’s just a confused Muslim terrorist.
The first trial balloon from the taxpayer funded defense team.
As per SOP, the terrorist was
(a) mentally disturbed
(b) acting alone
(c) his actions were inexplicable, unforeseen and not encouraged by the other members of the Mosque
(d) members of the Mosque are shocked at his behavior.
And, of course, the obligatory, “he seemed like such a nice boy”
It is amazing.
This guy is eligible for more government sponsored programs (just because he's Black) than is my own US born White son....and now, the SOB wants to kill me.
I have a friend, that’s a good man, An honorable officer without a mean bone in his body. Steadfast and level headed.
His 19 year old supplied guns for a hold up.
The punk has to do the time.
No sympathy from his Pop or me.
You did this as an adult despite all that YOU WERE TAUGHT.
The decision was his alone.
They have been floating trial balloons from the first report.
he seemed like such a nice boy He used to cut the grass..
Confused, my eye. He was crystal clear on what he wanted to do and why.
Aww da poor kid...He wuz only followin wot Allah tolt him wot ta do. Getting tired of that line from the slimes ... What they won’t use is ....Blame Allah, Then jihadists would burn the place down and toss the Big Burgher out through his 10th story office window...
He was just getting his life turned around too.
And that is what is killing this country.
Nah. WE need to work harder to convince the powers that be that when you catch a terrorist, YOU SHOOT HIM IN THE F$$$$$$ HEAD!
First choice: Revoke his citizenship and then hang him.
Second choice: Hang him and then revoke his citizenship.
Either choice is acceptable to me.
Under the new Obamacare you are a child until you are 27
One of the investigators said that it was made clear, repeatedly, that a large number of the people killed would be women and children. Repeatedly. He was all for it.
I don’t begrudge anyone a shot at bettering themselves, but why? why? why? are we putting nomadic islamist’s who are uneducated at the front of the line?
I believe only 4% of Somalians have certified skills.
We have 10% unemployment and we put these folks to the front of the line?
SHORT ROPE AND A LONG DROP SOLVES CONFUSION!
Film at eleven!!!!!!
Which is why it gets my goat that some claim “entrapment”. He pushed the button, called the number ...
and so the defense of this piece of s*it begins! sarcasm on!
That is pretty much how most folks on this forum were raised. Personally, I knew without doubt to NOT call home if I got my tail in a crack.
This was a good kid.
He got snagged on a technicality, because he was white.
Still. He was fooling with the wrong crowd and he has to do the time.
They are trying to spend their lives 'honoring' a god who supposedly delights in murder; degradation of women; pathological hatred of Jews; and mayhem...
Now exactly why would anyone worship a 'god' of this nature?
Must be pretty confusing.
Oh noes! a hate crime?
Really? What a shock!
Authorities don't know who started the blaze or why, but they believe the center was targeted because Mohamud occasionally worshipped there.
Sharp as tacks in Corvalis aint they?
Now he knows how the so called “right wing milita” people who were set up a while back feel.
Al this was was just the feds evening the scales while endevoring to keep the sheep pacified and distract the focus from the TSA.
Don’t fall for their tactics.
He’s not confused at all - doing exactly what he was taught from the cradle on.
And ‘authorities’ are still unable to determine if this clown has ever been to Minneapolis...
I’m certain that he got most of his desire to kill you and me down at Cedar-Riverside....
I have no doubt.
Or In Lewiston Maine
Oh, and the latest hot-spot for these ‘new citizens’ is in Rochester, MN at the Mayo. They’re laying low, changing sheets and bedpans, waiting for further instructions....
Does anybody recall this : Michelle Malkin April 28, 2005 10:26 AM From the Left Coast lunacy files, the Los Angeles Times reports today that the city of Portland is withdrawing its cops from the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force:
This city is expected today to become the first in the nation to pull out of an FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, following a series of disagreements between Portland leaders and federal investigators.
Mayor Tom Potter and several city commissioners, frustrated by the FBIs refusal to grant them full access to classified information, say the withdrawal will signal Portlands commitment to the protection of individual civil rights.
The proposal to pull out is expected to pass the City Council 4-1. If the Bush administration had guts, it would withdraw all federal homeland security funds from the city immediately. After 9/11, the city refused to cooperate with federal efforts to conduct voluntary interviews of of local Muslims in order to uncover terrorist plots. Portland is also a sanctuary city for illegal aliens. This despite several signs that al Qaeda and pro-Islamists have infiltrated the area.
One of the key recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, repeated endlessly, was the need for improved coordination and information-sharing at all levels of government. Portland has undermined those initiatives at every turnobstructing investigations and interfering with immigration enforcement.
If Portlands leaders dont want to help defend America, then let Portland defend itself.
She made the right call some 5 years ago.
So , members of a mosque are refusing to speak to the FBI in a terror investigation? What does that tell us?
Unfortunately we do not live in a time when effective remedies for treason exist.
