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...
