As reported by New Jersey:
An "al Qaeda sympathizer" who plotted to bomb police and post offices in New York City as well as U.S. troops returning home has been arrested on numerous terrorism-related charges, city officials said today.
Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced at a news conference the Saturday arrest of Jose Pimentel of Manhattan, "a 27-year-old al Qaeda sympathizer" who the mayor said was motivated by terrorist propaganda and resentment of U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
What care has been taken in referring to him as an "Al Qaeda sympathizer!" So long as you don't call him Islamic extremist, Muslim, terrorist, or any other term which may offend some sensitive souls.
And did you notice? It's all Bush's fault cause this radical extremist resented the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Doesn't he know Obama's bringing home the troops?
The mayor said Pimentel, a U.S. citizen originally from the Dominican Republic, was "plotting to bomb police patrol cars and also postal facilities as well as targeted members of our armed services returning from abroad."Terrorism is always an isolated incident with no apparent connection between one Al Qaeda member and the next. What about that terrorist propaganda which motivated him? Was that self-written?
Authorities have no evidence that Pimentel was working with anyone else, the mayor added.
"He appears to be a total lone wolf," the mayor said. "He was not part of a larger conspiracy emanating from abroad."
Pimentel, also known as Muhammad Yusuf, is accused of having an explosive substance Saturday when he was arrested that he planned to use against others and property to terrorize the public.
At last! Only towards the end of the article did the writer find it necessary to slip in his Muslim name hoping no one would notice.You surely noticed that his country of origin which isn't Middle Eastern or Arabic was deemed more important than the guy's current name since that was written right at the top of the article. And besides for this one mention, his Spanish name was written repeatedly throughout the entire article.
The charges accuse him of conspiracy going back at least to October 2010, and include first-degree criminal possession of a weapon as a crime of terrorism, and soliciting support for a terrorist act. He was to be arraigned later today.
Soliciting support? Wasn't he a lone wolf? My! These liberals do their utmost to protect the image of these poor terrorists and future terrorists to the extent that they can barely write two sentences without contradictions galore.
