Still tracking down that news but one thing is clear: he wasn't a Tea Partier!
There are reports that Faisal Shahzad, the failed Time Square bomber was a registered Democrat in Connecticut and may be a donor to Obama's campaign.
This comes after the Mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg openly speculated that the bomber might be “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something."
Contessa Brewer, a "reporter" for MSNBC went further, actually hoping the terrorist here wasn't Islamic and was disappointed that it wasn't a right winger.
Coming on the heels of repeated warnings from Obama, Bill Clinton and others that Tea Parties might lead to violence it was only natural for libs to assume this attack may have been inspired by opposition to Obama. But like the other baseless charges in Obama's political repertoire, this one turned out to be false as well.
Homeland Security almost let terrorist slip away?
What's worse than the overt profiling of Tea Partiers is the sheer incompetence of the Obama Administration which nearly let Faisal Shahzad get away. While security at the JFK airport in New York City was busy patting down little old ladies, Shahzad boarded his flight to the Middle East, the plane had began to pull away from the gate and only at the last second was the suspect caught.
How is it that a man whose name should have immediately placed him on a "no fly" list would be allowed to board a plane? Were counter terrorism agents spending too much time tracking down Tea Partiers?
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration has a "boot to the throat" of British Petroleum ten days AFTER the oil spill began in the Gulf of Mexico yet they don't seem to be paying much attention to the growing problem of terrorism in the U.S.!
