I just did the Victoria Taft show. Taft has been attending the trial of Mohamed Mohamud, the young American Muslim who tried desperately to blow up upwards of 25,000 Christian women and children at a Chrstimas tree lightening ceremony in Portland. He pushed the button twice to no avail.
You hear nothing of this story. There has been little to no media coverage. So busy is the enemedia swooning over Hamas-CAIR's #myjihad campaign. Would the media be as silent if there were thousands dead? It is only a matter of time and the blood will be on their hands as much as the jihadists they enable and fawn over (the poor, misunderstood troubled yoot...).
The Mohamud Case Goes to the Jury Victoria Taft
The jury is now considering whether Mohamed Mohamud was enticed and entrapped into pulling off an act of homegrown terrorism or whether, as his attorney has stated, the FBI foiled its own plot. Jury deliberations began Wednesday afternoon after both sides gave their closing arguments.
At Oregon State University
Angry and RadicalizedMohamud is the man who twice pushed in the numbers on a Nokia cellphone to detonate a bomb that would have blown up two square blocks of downtown Portland--in the target he picked: Portland Pioneer Square at the lighting of "The Tree," as the city calls it, to kick off the holiday season. Had the bomb been real, thousands of children and others would have been vaporized in the blast.
The lead prosecutor in the case, Ethan Knight, gave an overview of the case in a time line to show jurors that Mohamud was radicalized and willing to commit an act of violent jihad well before the FBI ever got involved.The defense argued Mo Mo was simply a talker not a doer and was enticed into pulling off the murderous plot only because the FBI gave him the opportunity.
