Mayor Michael Bloomberg, speculating on who tried to bomb Times Square:
…Homegrown, maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something.
Of course, the mayor of the city hit by 9/11 might have a hard time remembering that Islamic terrorists have been responsible for most of the terrorism in the world over the last few years.
Of course, it must be someone who doesn’t like the health care bill.
But now, they have arrested a Pakistani with “international connections”as he tried to flee to Dubai.
Surely, the man must be upset about the health care bill:
The man was identified as Faisal Shahzad, a naturalized American citizen, who had recently returned from a five month trip to Pakistan and the city of Peshawar, a known jumping off points for al Qaeda and Taliban recruits.
