** EXCERPT **
Full Account | New York City police officers and firefighters cordoned off much of Times Square for more than two hours after a small explosion set off, the authorities said, by an improvised explosive device damaged the front of the Armed Forces Career Center on the traffic island bounded by 43rd and 44th Streets, Seventh Avenue and Broadway at 3:43 a.m., officials said. No one was injured, and after a temporary interruption, subway service was restored.
Most traffic around Times Square was allowed to pass by 6:45 a.m., after vehicles had been diverted for more than two hours. City officials confirmed that police had initially blocked off the area as a precaution to ensure that there was no secondary device or other threat; the officials emphasized that they did not believe anyone was in danger.
Police officers at the scene said the explosion blew a hole through the front door of the recruiting station, which is at the northern end of the structure.

I’m predicting hippy-douchebag over goat-effing islametard.
Religion of peace = party of tolerance.
Bloomberg gets media attention finally.
...on a bicycle—sounds like a new contestant on “CLUE”, doesn’t it?
If these jackasses had any stones, they’d proudly admit that they did this and brag about it all over the media.
But they don’t, so they won’t.
“In order to prevent war and killing, we’re going to kill people” ~ Idiot domestic terrorists
That was my first thought, too. They’re deranged enough.
At least they didn’t use guns.
..and i would be looking for that profile at the next berry o rally around the area.
I think THAT pic should be taken down. He is not a muslim, and depicting him so makes US (freepers) look stupid.
Opponents lurk here, why give them ammunition?
Lubbock’s token moonbat radio host, Chad Hasty of KFYO, dismissed this as a mere prank, “nobody hurt....no big deal....probably just kids having fun.(!)
I wonder if it would seem so harmless to Chad if fun-loving pranksters bombed the peace movement’s analog to a recruiting station, say, a place that prints Che t-shirts or a local headshop.
Chad Hasty can be contacted at the station: Chad@kfyo.com
Or a Uni-bomber wannabe................
Disgraceful. This is what all the anti-American talk leads too.
I agree with you.
It’s a stupid picture.
Watch for that idiot Bloomberg to come out and demand banning surplus ammo boxes, grey hooded sweatshirts and bicycles.
A Berkley code pinker on vacation.
Just some leftist anti-USA wacko living off his parents’ check wearing beads and smelling like a goat.
In today’s American culture, a turban is a turban. Amazing how someone sees a turban and indulges in pious PC religious profiling.
Turbans are worn in India, Sri Lanka and other “eastern” cultures by non-Muslims.
That said, your graphic ^will^ be “profiled” and FR will be reflected as bigoted. (okay, even more bigoted than now...is that possible?)
Que sera, sera, mon ami!
Looks like the work of a 12 year old.
Call the adminstrator to take it down if you wish; however, Obama's denials about being a Muslim are hardly convincing and WHERE IS OBAMA'S BAPTISMAL certificate if he is a Christian?
Of course they didn't use guns--guns aren't allowed in NYC/sarc! That's why it's such a safe place to be, don't ya know.
Yes. I cast my vote for “home-grown far left” terrorist(s) on this one.
Democratic Undergroun - countdown til those idiots try to claim this attack was staged by the Bush administration.
The real question is not “Is he a Muslim?”, but rather
“Was he a Muslim?” Born of a Muslim father, it is my understanding that makes him Muslim. If he is now a Christian (depending on where you think his “church” fits in), does that make him an apostate to Islam?
We see repeatedly that the fundamentalists believe the penalty for apostasy is death.
I wonder why there has been total, dead silence from these people about this question. Taqqiya?
Or an abortion clinic...
Freedom to choose? /sarc off
Round up the usual suspects...........
“Looks as though William Bill Ayers and Bernadrine are back in business.”
FOBHO — Friends of Barack HUSSEIN Obama
And so it begins.
Great pic! We need to keep taking potshots at the cult being created by the Obamohammedites over their saviour. If the MSM won’t ever hold his feet to the fire it’s up to us.
By THIS, do you mean the bombing or my profiling.. which might also include: college drop out, studies in psychology, history or acting, 26 to 34, white, possession citations, moveon/daily kos bikesNotBombs member. Your statement is not clear.
It's not a question of how Free Republic will be seen, but, rather, whether Free Republic says the truth or makes a good case for a particular stand. And there is a good case that Barack Hussein Obama will be a Muslim terrorist sympathizer and, also, a good case can be made that he is a Muslim and lying about it:
The thing is you can't be a leader and not know what Islam means. The average Joe pumping gas on route 66 ? Ok, not on top of the issue. But there is NO WAY you can be running for POS and not know the hell being wreaked on the free and not so free world by Islamic jihad. That said, this man went to a madrassa in Jakarta. A madrassa in a Muslim country - whether he was devout or secular he knows what was taught. He knows what is in that book, the Koran...... Even if he is ambiguous, he knows the stakes involved. His father was a Muslim who took three wives (without divorcing). His stepfather and close members of his family are devout Muslims. Not an unimportant influence.
Every Muslim that left Islam is very definitive about leaving and why. They are quite vocal - Wafa Sultan, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, Walid Shoebat, Elijah Abraham etc ..... if he left Islam Obama MUST have very definite thoughts about it. He has to. He practiced Islam. That is not benign. It's big - and even if, as inferred by big media, it was not big to him, he can still appreciate how important it is knowing what he knows about Islam and apostasy.
And he would have had to make a decision to reject Islam. When did he make that decision? How? Why the silence? Why the reluctance to talk about it?
Apostasy is punishable by death in Islam. Have there been calls for his death? If not, why? Islam gives no free passes.
His posture on this is hard to define or understand. Because it is a critical is issue.
Great point. We shouldn't pee our pants just because the pro terrorist, drive by media calls us names.
Please see my previous post.
Also, this talk that we should use Barack HUSSEIN Obama's full name smacks of idol worship. Jews aren't really allowed to use G-d's real name (we call him Hashem in public). We should not extend the rules we use for our G-d to Barack Hussein Obama. This Obama worship is just toooooo much!
John Kerry wasn't a Muslim either, but I remember loads of parodies depicting him as one in either a turban or a burqa. Why should Mr. Hussein Obama get a free pass?
Freepers had a howler of a photoshop depicting John Kerry with a beret and a moustasche. It made John Kerry look french even though he was Irish.
C'mon freepers! Lighten up! We have always had a sense of humor and we need some laughs now in this unpleasant and ambigious election season.
Must be one of those, “hate the war but love the troops” types.
Security photos show a woman wearing a pink burkah...
Looks more like “I am a peacnik idiot” to me. If there is army there will be no war. Must be potent stuff in the Kool Aid they are drinking.
I wonder what his/her DU screen name is....
“Im predicting hippy-douchebag over goat-effing islametard.”
Probably not an islamotard since he didnt try to kill anyone. My bet is a leftist moonbat of the move-on persuasion.
Of course hes not a Muslim! He said so himself! “I have never been a Muslim.”
John Kerry wasn't a Muslim either, but I remember loads of parodies depicting him as one in either a turban or a burqa.
I didn't sign on for the "no Dems in turbans" agreement, whether its Obama, Pelosi, Clinton or anybody else.
