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.
Muhammad Yusuf nee Jose Pimental was mere hours away from bomb completion.
Obama say, "Respect it!" Geller say, "2012!" Jihadists say, "3...2...1"
New York bomb suspect Jose Pimentel not a serious terror threat: FBI sources hat tip van
FBI did not pursue Pimentel case because they thought he was incapable of carrying out terror plot, according to officials.
The FBI did not pursue a case against an alleged al-Qaida sympathiser accused of plotting to blow up police and military personnel because it believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling it off, officials said on Monday.
Investigators from the New York Police Department, which announced the arrest of Dominican-born US citizen Jose Pimentel, 27, at a press conference late on Sunday night, sought to involve the FBI at least twice.
But both times the FBI concluded he wasn't a serious threat, according to officials who spoke to the Associated Press.
Pimentel "didn't have the predisposition or the ability to do anything on his own," said one of the officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The FBI's New York office declined to comment when asked about the case on Monday.
The absence of the FBI from the case was significant because terrorism-related charges are generally prosecuted in federal rather than state court.
Details of the agency's doubts emerged as Pimentel's mother, Carmen Sosa, apologised for her son.
