A Middle Eastern man tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan this morning, law-enforcement sources told the Post.

The terrorist parked a van filled with what he thought were explosives outside of the Liberty Street building, sources said, then tried to set them off using a cell phone detonator.

The suspect, who was not immediately identified, was provided the explosives from an undercover FBI agent that he met on the Internet and believed to be an accomplice, the sources said. …

That’s a dicey one. Any attorney will cry entrapment. I bet Obama could refer him to a Muslim attorney that could get the charges dropped.

Oh, those middle eastern men...! They are such fun-loving people. Boom...you’re blown to bloody bits of protoplasm. Such fun. I just wonder what his religious affiliation is (not that it is relevant in any way)?

You’d think the FBI could have solved all this by
just giving HIM the exploding cell phone.

What a surprise that would have been!

Obammie’s in the Rose Garden as we speak denouncing this terrorist attack.

Meanwhile Obammie, Rice, Clinton, the DNC and all other leftist idiots will spend the next two weeks denying this was a terrorist attack.

If you have ever seen the Federal Reserve Bank in NYC you know that this guy was way off. I don’t even think a bunker buster would be able to any damage to it. It is an absolute fortress.

via 96.9 FM boston:

>>Just In: Federal Authorities have arrested a man they say was plotting to bomb the Federal Reserve building in Lower Manhattan, just blocks from the World Trade Center site. The suspect, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, lives in Jamaica, Queens.

The man, Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, a Bangladeshi national who lives in Queens, parked a van full of what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb outside the Fed building on Liberty Street in Lower Manhattan Wednesday morning and set off a cell phone detonator, according to the Department of Justice.

This is going to sound bazaar on the face of it, but my number one question here is, who gave this guy permission to think this way?

Some terrorist agent, some Imom, some community degenerate with similar views gave this guy the idea this would be the right thing to do.

When we find out who that is, I say cancel their contract!

It’s time we start f-ing some people up, for daring to support mindsets that result in this becoming reality.

“That’s a dicey one. Any attorney will cry entrapment.”

Well, I don’t know the details of this case, but usually the feds get lots of tape and video of the suspect making jihadist statements, and clearly stating that he intends to blow up some target and hurt or kill people. THEN they make fake explosives available and see if the suspect carries out actions that WOULD hurt people if the stuff was real. Those Occupy guys who tried to blow a bridge come to mind, the video makes it clear that if they had real C4 they would actually fuze it and plant it on the bridge.

I checked out a number of cases some months ago- this sort of setup is the only arrests/convictions for terrorism that I’m aware of. If there were real terrorists and not loudmouths that the cops can lure, there would be failed attempts discovered and some actual attempts that work. But this guy, if they have him on tape, is in a lot of trouble.

We've got one of those little bastards here in PDX. Tried to bomb the Christmas tree lighting last year, still no trial. Trying to get him off due to entrapment and some missing time from the surveillance tapes. He is guilty as hell and we are lucky the Feds did their job.

What really went wrong was Mitt saying over and over again that hussein was right. I got the same sick feeling each time he said that as when McCain told us we didn’t have to be afraid of hussein. It doesn’t matter that Mitt followed up on a few “the president is right” with how he was wrong but the average voter is only going to remember that the devil was right.
