Could this be the event that really makes Chertoff rich? Will we now see scanners in shopping malls?

What if half of all math

What if half of all math teachers believed in Santa Claus? Would that dissuade people from learning math?

It's one thing for a child to believe, it's another for an adult

Your question cannot be taken seriously, as it's completely improbable.

Yes

I understand what you say,But there are some here that would say that this would discredit a person completely.Unfortunately.

If I disappear from a discussion please forgive me. My 24-7 business requires me to split mid-sentence to serve them. I am not ducking out, I will be back later to catch up.

Well, it would.

Because Santa is not real.

I would wager a bet,

that if the FBI wasn't involved, then this disgruntled kid would not have tried what he tried.

They set him up, they went undercover, they made a test bomb, and blew it up with him, then they gave him a dud to seal the deal.

All for the purpose of continuing the state of fear in the population.

Another dimwitted muslim victim of the never-ending war on terrorism.

This kid was probably too dumb to pull it off himself anyway.

He was probably just disgruntled that the country that he loves is killing his friends and family overseas.

Perpetuation of a LIE.

I was at Pioneer Square

... if our Gov were serious about these people they wouldn't of led him to the "crime" scene if you know what I mean.

"The FBI’s surveillance started in August 2009 after agents intercepted his e-mails with a man he had met in Oregon who had returned to the Middle East"

Is this the patriot act? how did they "intercept" this?

And, why didn't they just hold off and give the kid

an opportunity to be contacted by some serious terrorists? Seems to me they could have then caught some big fish using the minnow for bait!

FBI thwarts

bombing in my shorts. Security scanners being implemented in all new fruit of the loom products. This is getting crazy! :-)

RAW: FBI prevented the Somali from being able to be hired

"Mr. Mohamud was then placed on a watch list and stopped at the Portland airport in June 2010 when he tried to fly to Alaska for a summer job."

"Third, there are ample facts that call into question whether Mohamud's actions were driven by the FBI's manipulation and pressure rather than his own predisposition to commit a crime. In June, he attempted to fly to Alaska in order to work on a fishing job he obtained through a friend, but he was on the Government's no-fly list. That caused the FBI to question him at the airport and then bar him from flying to Alaska, and thus prevented him from earning income with this job (para. 25). Having prevented him from working, the money the FBI then pumped him with -- including almost $3,000 in cash for him to rent his own apartment (para. 61) -- surely helped make him receptive to their suggestions and influence. And every other step taken to perpetrate this plot -- from planning its placement to assembling the materials to constructing the bomb -- was all done at the FBI's behest and with its indispensable support and direction."

One of these days Glenn, you're just gonna get fed-up and just call it what it really is: a false-flag US Gvt.-sponsored terrorism & agent provocateurs. I'm sure he will soon enough, if he has not done so already.

I know businesses like to

I know businesses like to start 'celebrating' christman earlier each year but why a christmas tree on thanksgiving? Isnt that a bit odd?

Wow!

FBI coerces a 17 year old and then arrests him. There's justice for you?
Bring on the scanners everywhere.

Formerly rprevolutionist

...THIS

...IS "STATE SPONSORED TERRORISM"...
...I have to admit, these degenerates who manufacture this false B.S. to gain incremental control over society, are masters at deception and what they do...
...They are openly now admitting what once was unthinkable and unknown, that they can use a person or persons and furnish them with the means to cause harm to others, or withold the means to do so...at their discretion and command...
...ever watch the movie THEY LIVE ?
...SORRY GOV...BUT YOU'VE GOT ONE THAT CAN SEE...right through your premeditated, manufactured B.S....

Shame on us...

I am ashamed at our law enforcement agencies for setting up a highly impressionable Somali teen to commit an act of terror. The word for this is entrapment.

There is no limit to which these idiots would go to try and make the headlines and justify their miserable existence.

Plano TX

You have to wonder how many "dummy bombs" our FBI has planted.

I know of dozens myself. Sometimes they don't even plant the bomb, and instead just accuse people of violating "interstate commerce."

Yes, bombs and/or thermate..

....and junk like that.

"ron paul is not running....ron paul is not running" -bloomberg 'expert' morning after the bloodbath, i mean, debate!

That this happend at a

That this happend at a Christmas tree lighting (not a holiday tree lighting btw) event may be more significant than it first seems. In totalitarian states it was important for the citizens to be ever mindful of the state. In red China for example they have a one child policy. They have been disciplined by the state to never forget the state, even in the bedroom. One of the times people are least mindful of the state is during the holiday season when they are with the family. After this event in Portland big BROTHER will now be viewed more as UNCLE sam. People will tend to view bodyscanners at the airport and body scanning vans as more of a blessing than an assault on our liberties. So the state has managed to insert itself into a time set aside for your family and God. The state is becoming all in all. It should also remembered that this has a anti-religious, blasphemous aspect to it. God did not save the day the state did. In China a general said 'we dont fear soldiers with guns WE FEAR MISSIONARIES WITH BIBLES!". They should. We HAVE had a change of government. It is anti-christian. They have removed the Bible from schools successfully trained people to view religion as something you do in the privacy of your home or at church. It is improper or politically incorrect to let Christianity be seen PUBLICLY. This is exaclty the time that Christianity should be publicly practiced because we truly live "in the times that try mens souls". It will take more than Ron Paul and the Constitution to save us.

So....Let me get this straight...

The 80%+ of Americans that are Christian, the US Government which overtly spews Christian primism, a new mega-church being built every day, a media-enforced religious test for elected leaders, half the military believing we are conducting religous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the fact that the US is the most religious nation on earth-even more than nations in the Middle-East, even professional football players thanking the Christian diety for letting them score a touchdown......

That indicates to you that there is no religion in America.

I don't follow....

Also - you may want to check your Bible. If I'm not mistaken Jesus is quoted as saying something like: "And when you make your prayers, be not like the false-hearted men, who take pleasure in getting up and saying their prayers in the Synagogues and at the street turnings so that they may be seen by men. Truly I say to you, They have their reward."

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Good point.

very good point!!! i slipped on catching that

ever watch that video a.j. has on prisonplanet, 'the CIA and satanism'?
thanks for pointing this out!! they always try to shut out god and put themselves in gods place

just when you thought it couldn't get uglier...

11:10amET-msnbc, "the feds took 19yr-old mahmoud a desolate area and exploded a bomb with him"
this is what Lucifer does it (tempting our somalian would be saviour in the desert) Hypothetical:
fbi/cia(prolly double agent)-" it feels good to blow up the good sh\t, doesnt it?(with snake-tongue sound effect) well, its even better to do it in a crowd of people so everyone will notice you and remember you
tsssssss! tsssss!

are you following this, mr. Nystrom? anyone?

"ron paul is not running....ron paul is not running" -bloomberg 'expert' morning after the bloodbath, i mean, debate!

I found another MSNBC article that said this:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/40402994/ns/us_news-security/

Excerpt:

On Nov. 4, in the backcountry along Oregon's coast, agents convinced Mohamud that he was testing an explosive device — although the explosion was controlled by agents rather than the youth.

i hate when they do this,

i hate when they do this, "Lets create a crime so we cant stop it". The kid obviously wasnt going to get a hold of anything so what happens? the FBI give him something. No existing threats were taken care of they created a threat then got rid of the one they made.

They have to create fake terror......

.

....in order to justify their existence/funding/tyranny.

I hardly watch the news on TV....

.

....but is this story even still being discussed on the news?

Was this event just a minor tremor in a long line of false-flag attacks?

I suppose after 9/11, they probably figured that they just had to add a few SMALL events just to keep everyone in line and supportive of their agenda to enslave us all.

americans left their pitchforks and torches,

and their RIGHTEOUS ANGER to watch a football game, soap opera-esque B.S. and go to church. argh, it makes me so angry living in dur-hur land. yeshua homashiah!, but these people are all retarded.
anyone who is able should print thousands of bastiat essays and start walkin around their communities evangelizin'!
i dont watch t.v. much either. i'd rather be here or at a neighbor's giving them a copy of 'the law'
but so joyful seeing others read this, get outraged, and keep the anger, and the story, alive. i can feel events all over have started slipping off the cliffs edge!
