Leon Traille, 29, said not a word today in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. Dressed in green jail shirt and pants, he stood silent, staring ahead, as judge Teresa Buchanan asked, "Mr. Traille - do you hear me, Mr. Trail?"

Bottle of gasoline dropped into Ballston Mall food court

This appears to me a major news story that is simply being squashed. We have a highly educated terrorist who attempted to molotov-cocktail a busy VA mall's food court. Where is the press on this ?

I don’t think it’s squashed, it’s just lack of interest. Obviously, the fact that no one was hurt helped kill the story.

Other thing killing the story is that the media seems unaware that the mall is across the street from DARPA and the Office of Naval Research.

This is obviously a workplace accident.
And I wonder what Sarah Palin did to set that guy off.

We have a highly educated terrorist

Fortunately he went to publik skool.

A home schooled kid would know how to make a Molotov cocktail that worked...

The media dropped it because the scum is obviously a member of the world-domination ideology cleverly disguised as a religion.

So far authorities are not speculating on a possible motive for such a brazen act.

Rectal/cranial immersion.

Sad, but true. At least from the media’s perspective. Been there a few too many times to find it too funny, tho.

” Bush’s fault. “

That was probably the first question he was asked “did you ever for Bush “ he said no, so the press just ignored it, nothing to see here.

It’s hard to say who or what he is. He’s apparently turned up here and there along the Atlantic Seaboard in recent years.

His name is vaguely French, indicating that he might be from some part of the (formerly) French Caribbean. There are a lot of Muslims in the Caribbean because there was a Pakistani emigration that ended up there in the British and, to a lesser extent, French colonies decades ago.

He has degrees and gets jobs but can’t keep them.

Personally, I’m voting for crazy, but a lot of times, crazy people are ripe for political picking. So I think it’s certainly possible that he was controlled or at least influenced by somebody with a radical Muslim ideology, possibly a Black Muslim separatist or possibly some radical from the typical downtown losers-and-loonies mosque.

The utter insult! His Imam's been preaching that females are inferior creatures, good for nothing but sex and procreation, and now he must put up with this, this female, posing as a judge!

Not Bush’s fault, but his “it’s a religion of peace” nonsense certainly didn’t help us any. It’s part of the reason these episodes don’t get widely reported as Islamic terrorism.
