    Mohamed Osman Mohamud Arrested In Portland Car Bomb Plot
    Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him.
    Yelling "Allahu Akbar!" – Arabic for "God is great!" – Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors

    According to the official, Mohamud hatched the plan on his own and without any instruction from a foreign terrorist organization, and he planned the details, including where to park the van for the maximum number of casualties.
    The affidavit said Mohamud was warned several times about the seriousness of his plan, that women and children could be killed, and that he could back out, but he told agents: "Since I was 15 I thought about all this;" and "It's gonna be a fireworks show ... a spectacular show."
    U.S. Attorney Dwight Holton released federal court documents to The Associated Press and the Oregonian newspaper that show the sting operation began in June after an undercover agent learned that Mohamud had been in regular e-mail contact with an "unindicted associate" in Pakistan's northwest, a frontier region where al-Qaida and Afghanistan's Taliban insurgents are strong. The person Mohamud had been in e-mail contact with was a friend living in Pakistan who had been a student in Oregon in 2007-2008, the official told the AP.
    The two used coded language in which the FBI believes Mohamud discussed traveling to Pakistan to prepare for "violent jihad," the documents said.
    An undercover agent met with him a month later in Portland, where they "discussed violent jihad," according to the court documents.
    As a trial run, Mohamud and agents detonated a bomb in Oregon's backcounry earlier this month.
    "This defendant's chilling determination is a stark reminder that there are people – even here in Oregon – who are determined to kill Americans," Holton said.
    I thought Obama was supposed assuage the concerns of such morons? I recall something along those lines... don't others?

    Organizing for America | BarackObama.com | Homeland Security

    Win the Battle of Ideas: An Obama Administration will defeat al Qaeda in what the 9-11 Commission called "the Battle of Ideas" by returning to an American foreign policy consistent with America's traditional values and by working with moderates within the Islamic world to counter al Qaeda propaganda. Barack Obama will establish a $2 billion Global Education Fund to work to eliminate the global education deficit and offer an alternative to extremist schools.
    Seems the message isn't getting through.

    If it didn't work in this one instance, it obviously can't be working anywhere else.

    LOGIC.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Why did his community not subdue him in time?
    I think you can ask that of every single one of the countless atrocities around the world.

    ....And draw your own conclusion at the usual 'failure'. After all, we poor saps never get told.

    Nah. I'm not asking it for every single one. I'm asking about this one.

    Probably because the answer would be the same as for this one. That is, if the rest of us are allowed into the big secret.

    This is obviously a case of entrapment. This freedom fighter was set up.

Sure, the next terrorist could just try some OTHER tactic somewhere ELSE, but at least there won't be any more terrorists who try to set off car bombs at Christmas tree lighting ceremonies. Sure, it will cost a huge amount of money for practically no security benefit, but we can't put a price on our lives. Amirite?
    I vote, that instead of a defensive strategy--as you described--that we employ an offensive strategy, where we actively hunt down and kill more terrorists, along with their support networks.

    Just what I figured.

    You haven't really changed. You just think you're being witty.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    Oregon Teen Arrested in Plot to Bomb Holiday Event

    Some people are just psychopaths.

    A Somali-born teenager attempting to detonate what he believed was a car bomb at a packed Christmas tree-lighting ceremony in downtown Portland, Ore., was arrested by the authorities on Friday night. They had spent nearly six months tracking him and setting up a sting operation, officials in Oregon said.

    The bomb, which was in a van parked off Pioneer Courthouse Square, was a fake — planted by F.B.I. agents as part of the elaborate sting — but “the threat was very real,” said Arthur Balizan, the F.B.I.’s special agent in charge in Oregon. An estimated 10,000 people were at the ceremony on Friday night, the Portland police said.

    Mr. Balizan identified the suspect as Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, a naturalized United States citizen. He graduated from Westview High School in Beaverton, Ore., a Portland suburb, and was a sophomore engineering student at Oregon State University in Corvallis, authorities said.

    I think we need a whole new approach but no idea what.
    This kid said he'd been thinking about it since he was 15. So something made him hate Americans before that.
