Mohamed Osman Mohamud’s planned terrorist attack in Portland, Oregon failed. The Somali teen terrorist-wannabe was duped by the FBI. Yelling Allah Akhbar (God is great) he kicked and screamed as authorities took him into custody. No doubt he will be dubbed the Christmas Tree bomber (wanna-be), who wanted everyone attending an annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony to leave dead or injured. See a video below.
Mohamed Osman Mohamud
Mohamud was arrested on suspicion of trying to set off a car bomb at the annual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony in Portland, Oregon. Mohamed Osman Mohamud is 19 years old and a naturalized American:
Detectives swooped on him just after he dialled a cell phone number that he thought would set off the bomb. As they closed in, Mohamud tried to kick at them and yelled “Allahu Akbar!” – Arabic for “God is great!”
“The threat was very real. Our investigation shows that Mohamud was absolutely committed to carrying out an attack on a very grand scale,” said Arthur Balizan, a special agent in charge of the FBI in Oregon. “At the same time, I want to reassure the people of this community that, at every turn, we denied him the ability to actually carry out the attack.”
Mohamud told undercover agents that he wrote articles published in Jihad Recollections, an online magazine advocating violence against non-Muslims, and he detonated a bomb in a trial run in the backwoods of Oregon.
On Friday, an undercover agent and Mohamud drove to downtown Portland in a white van that carried six 55-gallon drums with detonation cords and plastic caps, but all of them were inert.
They got out of the van and walked to meet another undercover agent, who drove to Union Station, the Portland train station, where Mohamud was given a cell phone that he thought would blow up the van.
FBI operatives apparently cautioned Mohamud several times about the seriousness of this plan, noting that there would be many children at the event. But Mohamud responded that he was looking for a “huge mass that will … be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays,” the court documents said.
Whoopi Goldberg has been all over television defending “Muslim kids” as she makes the rounds touting her new book. Life is terrible for them in the U.S., dontcha know – just dastardly to be condemned to living in this country.
A quick look at videos on YouTube indicates the FBI is at fault for nurturing this young man.
He was surely abused by his White counterparts in America, and then duped by the FBI and the American system. Did I mention that the FBI operatives warned him numerous times that many children would be a the event, and that suited Mohamud just fine. Killing infidel children? Ah, it’s a wonderful thing. JihadWatch has more.
