US citizen 'trying to flee US'
Pakistan and American -- is it homegrown or is it international? Hmmmm. Uh, it's jihad, stupid.
So this is the white man the NY Times said was a person of interest. I am surprised they didn't call him a tea partier. Asshats. (photo hat tip Rut)
NY Times: Law enforcement officials offered a more detailed description of the makeup of the failed car bomb found in Times Square on Saturday night, and said they were reviewing surveillance footage that showed a white man who appeared to be in his 40s walking away from the area as he looked over his shoulder and removed a layer of clothing.
But imagine, if you will, that we said middle eastern man and it was a white guy. The liberals' heads would be exploding in indignant outrage over the gross miscarriage of social justice.

New York (CNN) -- Authorities hunting for the suspect in the botched Times Square bombing dramatically beat the clock overnight, seizing a Pakistani-American citizen moments before he was set to begin a long trip to his strife-torn homeland.
Faisal Shahzad, 30, was arrested around 11:45 p.m. ET Monday at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, said Attorney General Eric Holder.
President Obama said Tuesday that "justice will be done" in the case and that U.S. officials "will do everything in our power to protect the American people."
The failed bombing is "another sobering reminder of the times in which we live," Obama told an audience of business leaders. But the United States "will be vigilant" and "will not cower in fear."
Is Eric Holder representing him?
And this nonsense between "home grown" and international Islamic terrorism. It's jihad. Nationality has nothing to do with this. Islam is their state. Borders are merely logistics.
As Van points out, "I think the Mayor's comments on the Times Square Bomber were downright stupid and idiotic and he should be called out for it. He's part of this group that is stuck on the 'homegrown', aka Timothy McVeigh approach to terrorism. The fact that this guy, Faisal, was an American (naturalized) is not good, but, it's obvious that this was a foreign op from the start."
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg agreed the Times Square car bombing was likely “homegrown” as he proceeded, in an interview excerpt run on Monday's CBS Evening News, to speculate it could have been placed by “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything
Is it any wonder the Mayor has a stealth jihadist on his Human Rights Commission? Write him.
The Feds did an amazing job, almost scary, in apprehending him at JFK (a movie script, for sure) as he was about to leave the country. If Bush had done this, the Libs would be screaming about privacy concerns, given all the ELINT data they collected and analyzed.
Mayor Bloomberg's office has been deeply infiltrated -- "human rights
commissioner" -- oh, the irony. The city of "if you see something, say
something" has on our "human rights
commission" a litigation
jihadist who is representing the flying imams -- people saw
something and said something, and Omar with CAIR filed suit.
Give 'em an NYC commission spot!
Stealth jihadist and the worst, most
obvious conflict of interest.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has on his New York City Human Rights Commission the CAIR-New York President Omar Mohammedi. Mohammedi was appointed to the Commission in October of 2002.
Terror lawyer Mohammedi represents a number of organizations that are the defendants in a 9/11 lawsuit for the murder of 3000 innocent people. One of the organizations he is the lawyer for is the World Assembly for Muslim Youth (WAMY), a Saudi-based group with offices around the globe that publishes incendiary materials against Jews and openly supports Hamas and violent jihad.
Omar Mohammedi has also serves as attorney for the Flying Imams, the six imams who were removed from a US Airways flight after passengers complained that they were acting suspiciously. Mohammedi filed a lawsuit on their behalf for unspecified damages, citing "fear, depression, mental pain and financial injury" on the part of the imams. He also initially filed suit against the passengers who complained, which would have had a chilling effect on anyone reporting suspicious behavior by Muslims in airports -- although that part of the suit was dropped after Republicans in Congress passed legislation to protect the passengers.
