NEW YORK (AP) - Federal authorities declined to pursue a case against an "al-Qaida sympathizer" accused of wanting to bomb police stations and post offices in New York City because they believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling off the alleged plot, two law enforcement officials said Monday.

the Fan Belt Inspectors bow to their holy messiah....
this will not make the MSM.
Besides, Islam is not sympathetic to the mentally ill or handicapped anyway.
That's why they use them to do the bombings.
Or, if they can't get mentally ill folks they get gays.
“because they believed he was mentally unstable”
Well, they were right about that part.
But then, aren’t they all?? (mooselems)
so we are only going after mentaly stable terrorists now?
They must assume all mass killers are mentally stable, normal people!!
Sympathy for the devil, thanks to Zero.
"Federal authorities declined to pursue a case against an "al-Qaida sympathizer" accused of wanting to bomb police stations and post offices in New York City because they believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling off the alleged plot..."
I bet mentally unstable Oscar Ortega is really wishing right now that he was a Muslim...
If he was that un-scary as a “terrorist”, perhaps the story is that this dude was just trotted out by “Bloomers” to make himself look like he’s not completely in bed with America’s enemies.
Sounds like there was no plot here that was really an immediate threat. If that’s the case, it’s just a campaign-ad moment.
I don’t what’s up, I’m just musing.
“The federal theory is that mentally ill people can’t pull these deals off ...”
One shot Gabby Giffords and killed others awhile back...
That happened only because Sheriff Noodlenik knows his nut cases ~
That’s very true. It may be that the mentally unstable only manage to kill a few people before they get taken out, but still, in the Islamic mind, even a few dead kaffirs help the cause.
And I don’t want to be one of them.
FBI wouldn’t want to be accused of “acting stupidly” now, would they.
Yep and once again, the Politically Correct, pusilanious, Moonbats (Mayor Bloom-Ing-Idiot, the Commish and DA) gave a "pass" and spun the several questions about the "Feebs" involvment that one had to be stooopid not to see right thru their Bovine Excrement that there was more to their efforts to deflect the questions than met the eye.
I believed that about as much as Mayor "Doom-bergs" repeated assertions that Muhammad Yusuf (who BTW, his honor REFUSED to use his Moozie name and kept calling him Jose Pimentel--don't want to offend the practitioners of the Religion of the Perpetually Offended) was a "Lone Wolf" and had NO association with ANY other individuals or groups.
“because they believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling off the alleged plot”
Translation: He was a dark-skinned Hispanic Muslim. A bit too PC for our liking.
because they believed he was mentally unstable
Already working on getting him off, are they?
Yes, everyone was awfully quick to pronounce he was a lone wolf. I hope some more digging will turn up public evidence about any terrorist connections he may have.
I thought that happened so that a bunch of sanctimonious online liberal twits could tell me that I was personally responsible for it...
Also known as fundamentalist Christians and veterans or as Obama calls them those "bitterly clinging to their guns and bible".
Oh, and one more thing: How is this guy living? Am I paying for welfare, cellphone, medical and legal expenses, etc.?
Look at the photo. The FBI is an arm of the Justice Department. As such, it is reluctant to take action against one of “Holder’s People.”
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one's own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Orr was crazy and could be grounded. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be crazy and would have to fly more missions. Orr would be crazy to fly more missions and sane if he didn't, but if he was sane, he had to fly them. If he flew them, he was crazy and didn't have to; but if he didn't want to, he was sane and had to. Yossarian was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
Remember how it worked in the 90s? (Of course you do, but I say it for dramatic flair). The tried to blow up the WTC and failed, though they did kill three people, but then they came back and did it again and got it right the second time. Do these people know what they’re playing with? New York is clearly a target, and it was sheer luck that prevented Times Square from becoming a death zone what was that, last year? And the year before that the guy the passengers wrestled down? How long is their luck supposed to hold out? Are they really COURTING another mass casualty attack?
Tell me you couldn’t see and feel Kelly’s anger and frustration with the Feebs behavior here. He has to tread carefully because the left is raising a lot of questions about the NYPD’s massive response to the GWOT. Besides their continuing surveillance, which is done outside NYC as well as in, their placement of detectives overseas, the left is moving against the NYPD’s semi military reponses as evidenced by Kelly’s 60 Minutes appearance. Holder will move aginst Kelly and the NYPD in the near future.Most certainly if Obama is reelected.
C O R P S E M A N
Lol, what a goulish thing to come upon.... Funny
I agree with the first post - that Obama’s administration tries to conceal anything done by a muslim. We all know it.
Holder’s DOJ orders
Only get Whitey
[Only get Whitey]
Yep. I hope they manage to get Holder removed - but things never seem to go right.
Getting dusk outside, I hate the time change.
The FBI turned down the case of the all-American Muslim bomber twice because they thought he was not a threat. That is Obama's homeland security policy. You can bet Eric Holder's pro-jihad Department of Justice conferred on this. Infiltration by stealth jihadists of our government agencies reaches the senior level across the board.
This is the reason why the NYPD has its own intel department, and why Islamic supremacist groups (i.e. Hamas-linked CAIR) want so desperately to shut it down.
“Or, if they can’t get mentally ill folks they get gays.”
Uh, isn’t that like saying that if they can’t get fish they get Trout?
The Gibson guitar owners were definitely worth pursuing, though. /sarc
