Defense Attorney Says Teenager Accused in Bomb Plot "Immature"
Chicago Sun Times ^ | September 17, 2012 | Kim Janssen

During a brief appearance Monday, a boyish-faced Daoud wore leg shackles, an orange jumpsuit and a scruffy, unkempt beard and Afro-style hair.

He’s accused of trying to blow up a bar and liquor store using a car bomb placed in the back of a Jeep Grand Cherokee Friday night.

Though federal authorities haven’t identified the bar, the co-owner of Cal’s at 400 S. Wells, Mike Feirstein said Sunday that he believes his family’s bar was the target.

A federal complaint alleges (Abel)Daoud pressed a “detonator” that he believed would explode the car bomb, killing dozens. Daoud — who worshipped at the Islamic Foundation in Villa Park — had become radicalized online and wanted to join Al-Qaida, authorities allege. He allegedly picked the bar as a target because it was busy and served alcohol, which is against Muslim beliefs.

During the court hearing on Monday, Daoud’s attorney, Thomas Durkin, alleged that Daoud was being held in solitary confinement at the Metropolitan Correctional Center simply because he allegedly holds radical Islamic views, a move he complained was unconstitutional.

The detonator should have been an explosive device itself. We wouldn’t have to waste money on this piece of debris any longer.

He would be a good candidate for Obama’s son.

Maybe the MSM can find a picture of him when he was ten years old and use that for their pity parties...

Maybe not ten, but still old enough to throw rocks, drag a dead body, or blow something up.

The photo that you posted is of a different terrorist suspect who tried to set off a car bomb near Wrigley Field.
This case occurred some months ago.

The new terror suspect targeted a crowded bar where hundreds of people were gathered after work on a Friday night in the West Loop.

Durkin said he plans to challenge whether authorities had probable cause to detain Daoud and his continuing detention. He said he was troubled that an undercover FBI agent apparently invented an overseas Imam to give his blessing to the bomb plot

Hey, hussein has to get enought brothers of the muzziehood placed in key positions just in case the Spanish voting company doesn't fudge the count.

I’d bet dollars to doughnut holes that this is an FBI-manufactured “crime.”

OMG!!! Cal’s on the corner of Wells and Van Buren. I’ve had lunch there many times, as well as after-work beers.

Adel Daoud graduated from the Islamic Foundation high school in Villa Park and still attended prayers there.

“Every ‘moderate’ Muslim is a potential terrorist. The belief in Islam is like a tank of gasoline. It looks innocuous, until it meets the fire. For a ‘moderate’ Muslim to become a murderous jihadist, all it takes is a spark of faith.

It is time to put an end to the charade of “moderate Islam.” There is no such thing as moderate Muslim. Muslims are either jihadists or dormant jihadists – moderate, they are not.”

“An attorney representing a suburban teen accused of a jihadi terror plot to blow up a downtown bar described him as “an immature 18-year-old”

Well, in that case, I guess it’s OK for him to try to blow up a bar full of people.

What low, vile vermin these defense lawyers are. Imagine being so low, so greedy, so unprincipled that you would defend a rabid savage who would deliberately plot to kill innocent people!

He’s an adult. He’s mature enough. He made his own choices.

Immature is a description, not a legal defense when you’re a legal adult.

Obama prpbably also needs a new Ambossador to Libya. Maybe he will nominate the bomber for that.

I bet the attorney would have changed his tune if Duuh-ood had targeted his firm instead...

A moderate Muslim is only a Muslim that hasn’t yet learned how to build a bomb.
