    Terror plotting: bravado or sincerity?

    Terror plotting: bravado or sincerity? - CNN.com


    Hummm, he states his sole purpose in coming to the US was to kill and he tried to detonate what he thought was a 1,000 bomb but CNN questions if this was a "sincere resolve to attack" or "barroom bravado".

    :confused:

    Why not call this an attempeted act of terror? What am I missing?

    You are missing the fact that CNN are IDIOTS. Barroom bravado does not include buying and building what you believe is a 1000 bomb, planting it and then pushing the detonate button.

    Strange, eh? If this had been a white man trying to blow up an abortion clinic, it would have been called domestic terrorism, but this man who tried to blow up and kill thousands is nothing but barroom bravado. I am so freaking lost. WTF is going on.

    The problem is those nutters in Miami that got spoon fed some stupidness including terrorist uniforms, etc.

    CNN isn't saying this wasn't terrorism, they are merely commenting on how difficult it is to avoid entrapment.

    No one likes entrapment, correct?

    Those Miami folks were not entrapped and neither was this guy. Or perhaps you can point us to the case being dismissed? You are aware one of the main tools of law enforcement is the sting?

    I think the low IQs of the people in Miami point to entrapment. IIRC, only one of them was convicted of anything.

    This guy does sound like a terrorist, but who knows, maybe he's as retarded as they were.

    Yet, he flew here with the sole mission to kill because he was inspired by al-Qaeda, dug enough to find someone willing to supply him with a fake bomb. And CNN questions if this act was barroom bravado. In fact they say:

    So what happens if he knew how to build a bomb or obtained something to kill from a non-imformant?

    Then it would certainly be more clear that he was a terrorist.

    Wait, you question if he was a terrorist? Why? So because he was 'ratted' out and he made a 'deal' with an informant instead of a 'real" terrorist, his intentions can be questioned? I don't understand. I am not trying to be obtuse. I am sincerely trying to understand. He said he came here with the sole purpose to commit an act of terror.

    Because Ravi always supports terrorists and downplays terrorism.

    It's all part of her anti-America, anti-Christians schtick.
