    I'm shocked. Throughout this site, and others, I've seen repeated posts from dedicated lefties whose only overriding opinion on the Portland incident is that the FBI was wrong somehow!!! That somehow the Muslim got an unfair deal or something.

    Do you lefties know about gathering evidence? Lets say they arrested him earlier. When he was simply "conspiring" to do this, which is a weak charge that probably wouldn't have stuck.

    What then? They have little evidence that the 1st amendment wouldn't protect. AND, his lawyer would get him off easy by saying "My client was led astray, BUT he never truly intended to go through with this plan."

    NOW they have his attempt to follow through with it. A potential life sentence. And BARGAINING chips to get him to rat on any friends with similar intents.

    Brilliant police work by the FBI.

    I'm disappointed that the left is for some reason coming out against the FBI.

    I haven't seen any "lefties" blame the FBI. Only Conservatives....

    I did.

    The only people I found who were blaming the FBI were Revere and Quantum (sorta). Neither are "lefties".

    You shouldn't let the left disappoint you...It will only take a matter of days or weeks before your family finds you swinging from a shower rod or toking on an exhaust pipe.

    The folks in Portland are re-thinking their position on the war on terror, and looking for a face-saving venue...

    "In 2005, leaders in Portland, Oregon, angry at the Bush administration's conduct of the war on terror, voted not to allow city law enforcement officers to participate in a key anti-terror initiative, the FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force. On Friday, that task force helped prevent what could have been a horrific terrorist attack in Portland. Now city officials say they might re-think their participation in the task force -- because Barack Obama is in the White House. "

    Case in point: see wingy's post.


    Really telling is the statement by the perp, telling what fools the lefties are:

    "According to the FBI affidavit, the undercover agents asked whether he worried that law enforcement would stop him. "In Portland?" Mohamud replied. "Not really. They don't see it as a place where anything will happen. People say, you know, why, anybody want to do something in Portland, you know, it's on the west coast, it's in Oregon, and Oregon's, like you know, nobody ever thinks about it."

    I'm mildly amused that the right seems to have flip flopped on their longheld rant that terrorism should not be treated as a law enforcement/criminal problem.

    lol
