But on Sunday, two days after federal law enforcement officials arrested Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, and accused him of plotting to bomb the square during a Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, it was more subdued.
Workers were preparing the brick-covered plaza for the 15th annual Holiday Ale Festival that starts on Wednesday. Private security officers patrolled the area. And visitors were still puzzled by the news of the plot.

Why don't we ban immigration from Somalia? Why do we need more Somalis in the U.S.?
Why? They hate us and ten years later, liberals still don’t get it.
Yea. Us hip urban liberal types are their friends; helping them to bring down those those redneck rural Christian types. Why would they attack us?
Why does the NEW YORK TIMES support al Qaeda and terrorists?
Why oh why would the moslems want to hurt us?
Islamic terrorists hate homosexuals....Portland could be targeted because of it’s high concentration of gays..
I'm sure the Portland papers carried any news of the snipers and Malvo was even interviewed not long ago.
Duh. Because they hate America fools.
LOL - sorry liberal trash, MUSLIMS would want to bomb there - how you cannot see that points to a delusional state of cognitive dissonance
In response to the thwarted plot, Mayor Sam Adams has floated the idea of cooperating more fully with federal law enforcement agencies.
I think that the "Federal authorities" ought to let you stew.
In 2005, the Portland City Council passed an ordinance that put conditions on the citys continued participation in the F.B.I. Joint Terrorism Task Force
You asked for it you got it.
officials said they were also concerned about the safety of Portlands Muslim population. The police authorized additional patrols around Muslim community centers,
LOL Yeah, thats it! Protect the muslims and grope the grandmothers! Brilliant!!
Here is why Portland:
“City officials said they were also concerned about the safety of Portlands Muslim population. The police authorized additional patrols around Muslim community centers, said Sgt. Peter Simpson, a police spokesman. “
Being a sanctuary city for illegals wouldn't have anything to do with it, right?
He lived near Portland
Liberals invite this sort of thing.
Well let’s see now, Fox News is reporting that Portland had refused to cooperate with the new Homeland Security programs Obama has instituted, the programs are VOLUNTARY kinda like Income Tax, one of Voluntary Compliance. So the FBI picked Portland before they recruited this guy, pretty simple huh. This is and was a FUND RAISER for the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT in an effort to exert their control over a city in a sovereign state. This is typical behavior when you refuse to volunteer to go along with a voluntary program handed down by the Federal Government.
Ugggh, people don't seem to get it. They don't care. About anything.
Because you’re stupid liberals and you invited terrrorists into your home. Throughout the 1990s you were cheering on ecofascist terrorists, who bombed car dealerships, agricultural research centers and universities.
Now you have terrorists who don’t believe in bombing the same targets as liberal fascists do. Live with it or fix it, liberal scum.
Muslims hate all of that stuff. It's no surprise they would want to destroy Portland.
Portland refused to participate with the FBI’s JTTF...
They viscerally believe that being anti-Christian will protect them from Muslim terrorists.
Since the early 1980s, "intercultural" and "multicultural" on and around college campuses have been synonomous with "dhimmitude".
Isn’t Portland where the wannabe bomber lived?
“Who would want to kill us? I mean we’re all communists and anarchists here. We all hate America and Judaeo Christian ethics. I mean something’s wrong here. We’re all playing on the same anti-American team here. I just don’t understand!!”
In the meantime, we need to make sure innocent people arent blamed or victimized.
Muslim terrorist attack the weakest cities. I was appalled by the reaction from the people there. The muslims KNOW there is no fight in liberals whatsoever, so they are easy marks.
“Who would want to bomb here?”............................... Duhh, criminals, crusaders and crazies.
Yeah, you know, those Muslims that publicly reject the idea of violent jihad and killing or enslaving every infidel on the planet until everywhere in the world conforms to Sharia law.
Yeah, those Muslims.
THAT is the first hing I thought of. If he lived near Branson, MO, he would try to attack it.
Maybe they should be more concerned about the non-Muslim population? A little fear amongst the Muzzies would probably be a good thing.
Sssshhh. Quiet please.
I think we’re intruding upon the aftermath of a mass Liberal Mugging.
Stand by for the conversion of at least some of ‘em to conservatives. As for the rest — we’ve got their attention anyway.
John Mohamad had the DC area shut down for weeks with his random attacks ~ and he was from Portland. Even after 9/11 the former mayor Vera Katz regularly placed roadblocks in the way of authorities investigating the involvement of Portland's substantial Moslem community in 9/11 and other terroristic situations.
They’re all over central Minnesota....the local Uffda population blames Catholic Charities.
Why Naoki, a nut-job moon-god cultist. Just because you are in one of the most liberal multicultural kumbaya enclaves in the United States doesn't protect you from the jihadis. In fact they probably hate you even more for all the bend-over acceptance.
Why attack Americans lighting a Christmas tree?
(Cockroaches hate The Light)
Why Portland, why New York, why LA, why ANYWHERE?
Stupid people, jihadis hate us and want to kill us, ALL of us.
It doesn’t matter, liberal, conservative, Christian, Jew, black, white, man, woman, child.
Convert or die, that is the aim of global Jihad.
WAKE UP PEOPLE! (Not freepers, of course, we are amoung the few who are awake.)
By and large, allowing Somalis into the country seems to be akin to letting a rabid dog live in your house.

The Muzzies are going after the weak spots, the soft underbelly. Portland and Seattle are both up near the top of the list. It cracks me up when I hear New Yorkers claim to be bad asses. How many times have they been hit? Funny, down here in redneck land of SE Tennessee, where most of the population is armed to the teeth, I don't recall ever hearing about a terrorist attack, or even a plot for that matter......
In a determination letter to Congress, President Barack Obama has announced
that he will allow an additional 80,000 immigrants - mostly from Islamic
countries - to resettle in the United States during fiscal year 2011.
Over 15,000 will come from Africa - most from Somalia.
The increase in Somali immigrants, according to Mr. Obama, is justified by
humanitarian concerns or is otherwise in the national interest.
The actual number of Somalis have been resettled in the United States during
the past two decades remains a matter of conjecture, since reports to
Congress from the Office of Immigration and Naturalization Services (INS)
were not filed before 1993... -(read more) http://www.desertconservative.com/2010/11/02/selective-immigration-practiced-by-obama-administration-must-be-stopped/
Exclusive: Small Town America Transformed By Somali Migrants
Paul Williams, PhD
Newly arrived Somali immigrants have transformed small towns and cities throughout the United States into tuulas (Somali villages).
The process is underway in such places as Lewiston, Maine; Shelbyville, Tennessee, St. Cloud, Minnesota, Clarkston,Georgia, and Jamestown, North Dakota.
The Jamestown Sun reports that 400 Somalis have applied for public housing in the past four months.
The Somali immigrants in Garden City, Kansas and nearby small towns have created the Somali Community Center of Southwest Kansas in order to tap into public welfare programs. Within this section of the heartland, white Christians have become the minority.
In East San Diego, the newly arrived Somalis have created a Little Mogadishu. The streets are lined with Somali stores, shops, and mosques. In the midst of this ethnic enclave stands the Iftin Charter School, where K-8 students are introduced to Arabic. 99% of the student population is Somali; Arabs constitute the remaining 1%.
The American Somalis now display the highest unemployment and poverty rates in the country. They also remain the least educated. According to Andrew Liepman, the deputy director of intelligence at the National Counterterrorism Center, Somali-Americans face “greater insularity compared to other, more integrated Muslim immigrant communities, [which] has aggravated the challenge of assimilation for their children.”
This problem is crystallized by the present situation is Lewiston, Maine, where African Muslims, many from the Bantu tribe, began arriving in 2001 at the rate of 100 a month.
Mohammed Maye, the president of the African Community and Refugee Center in Clarkston, Georgia posted a map of Lewiston on the wall of his office. Go to Maine, he advised the Somali immigrants. Abdullahi Abdullahi, the president of the Somali Community Development Organization in Clarkston, upheld this advice by telling his fellow countrymen that, unlike Georgia, Maine has terribly cold winters, but the welfare system is better.
Lewiston, indeed, was better. The small town in Maine with a population of 30,000 provided welfare to anyone in need, with the state picking up half the tab. Recipients, including the Muslim refugees, were allowed a generous five years of assistance before their benefits became terminated, and extensions for several additional years on the public dole were not difficult to obtain. Single parents could stay on welfare and go to college.
Public housing was also available, although, with the influx of Somalis, the housing projects became packed to capacity. Many of the new project dwellers were single Somali mothers with large broods of children. Those who are unable to obtain public housing were handed Section 8 vouchers, which the federal government provided to subsidize their rent in private apartments. The northern city with its frigid climate became welfare heaven for the arrivals from the vast desert areas of northern Africa.
The newcomers have shown scant interest in securing employment. When Renee Bernier, the president of the Lewiston city council, offered to hire 30 Somalis at the rate of $8 to $10 an hour to hold warning signs at construction sites, few displayed interest. The handful, who did apply, said that they were only willing to work between the hours of 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
The Somali population of Lewiston now exceeds 40,000. -http://www.familysecuritymatters.org/publications/id.6756/pub_detail.asp
Because Porkland is part of the Dar al-Harb and not ruled by sharia!
Pitty he didn't have the additional patrols around a day earlier............then he would have caught the miscreants who set the fire.....
Better yet....would have preserved the records at the mosque.
You can bet your ass that the one[s] who set fire to the mosque, as the old saying goes”knew my dog because a stranger can’t get in”.
In other words, it was an inside job.
You’re still mad at the federal government for ignoring your repeated calls to eliminate the sales tax on tinfoil, aren’t you?
