Now, my blood is boiling. Check out this report from CNN on the terror plot in New York:

(CNN) — Attorney General Eric Holder said Tuesday that Times Square bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad has admitted involvement in what authorities have now labeled an attempted terrorist attack.

Holder said that the Justice Department anticipates charging Shahzad “with an act of terrorism,” among other things.

“It is clear that this was a terrorist plot,” Holder said. It could have caused “death and destruction in the heart of New York City.”

FBI Deputy Director John Pistole said Shahzad was on the federal “no fly” list, which helped lead to Customs and Border Protection agents arresting him Monday night on a plane preparing to depart New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

This article talks in depth about this guy’s trip to Dubai via Islamabad, his cell phone, his car, the cameras that caught him on tape, and bears NO MENTION of his Muslim ties. None. As if Islam is not relevant in this picture.

The one mention of Islam is that “backlashes won’t be tolerated”. This, my friends, is crap. How much crap do we have to take from terrorists before we fight back? How many Americans have to die on our soil before we say ENOUGH with political correctness?

Why are the Obama and Bloomberg administrations going so far out of their way to be nice to thugs and barbarians? Last I knew, we were a strong nation that took crap from nobody. Now, we are actually CAUSING MORE TERRORISM by not fighting it where it lives — in the mosque.
