Portlandís City Council and Mayor Rejected Joint Terrorism Task Force in 2005
The Religion of Conquest ^ | 11-29-2010 | Damon Whitsell

And Friday it almost reaped the bitter fruits of that decision. Leftist/Jihadist Alliance Update: “Politically correct Portland rejected feds who saved city from terrorist attack,” by Byron York in The Examiner, November 28 (thanks to Pamela Geller):

What is ironic is that the operation that found and stopped Mohamud is precisely the kind of law enforcement work that Portland’s leaders, working with the American Civil Liberties Union, rejected during the Bush years. In April 2005, the Portland city council voted 4 to 1 to withdraw Portland city police officers from participating in the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force. Mayor Tom Potter said the FBI refused to give him a top-secret security clearance so he could make sure the officers weren’t violating state anti-discrimination laws that bar law enforcement from targeting suspects on the basis of their religious or political beliefs.

[....]In the Mohamud case, it appears that Portland’s anti-law enforcement stand might actually have influenced Mohamud’s decision to undertake an attack in the city. According to the FBI affidavit, the undercover agents asked whether he worried that law enforcement would stop him. “In Portland?” Mohamud replied. “Not really. They don’t see it as a place where anything will happen. People say, you know, why, anybody want to do something in Portland, you know, it’s on the west coast, it’s in Oregon, and Oregon’s, like you know, nobody ever thinks about it.”

Portland, Oregon—where progressives go to live because Berkeley is too conservative.

I will bet the farm that these very same Portland democrat party hacks will protest that the poor little mass murdering Islamist was ENTRAPPED BY THE FBI.

Truly Multnomah County is hopeless. This great revelation of Portland Mayor San Adams comes from an individual, who the citizens decided to retain after defeating a recall effort targeting his clearly substantiated involvement with pedophilia. As Lars Larson said, “Portland is the only city where you can have a Samuel Adams when you are under 18.” Without Multnomah County, Oregon would have joined the national trend of throwing the Democrats out of statewide offices.

You can expect the local politics of complacency and detachment to retain this unique homeland in Portland for the creativity and energy of aspiring terrorists committed to perpetrating unspeakable tragedies throughout this nation.

The original decision to leave the task force was motivated by the individuals who saw themselves participating in all the meetings, but had such questionable backgrounds that they could not pass the security check.

The FBI told Portland’s Police Chief about the impending bust immediately before it happened, but he had to sign a confidentiality agreement in advance, and was not permitted to brief anyone, not even his staff. Current Mayor Sam Adams was notified of the attempted attack after the suspect was in custody.

Isn’t Portland, Oregon a “Smart Growth” city full of liberals who consider themselves better than most? Since they have accepted the progressive European model than shouldn’t they expect to live with a certain amount of terrorist bombings and European style double digit unemployment? If that’s what the “people” voted for, let them have it.

No doubt. The Oregonian this morning made it a point to let people know that the “suspect” is being served nutritious “halal” meals while he is incarcerated, to prevent violating any of the delicate tenants of this devout Pilgrim’s personal faith...

No kidding.
