Not All Muslims try to blow up the Federal Reserve

Just one Muslim. And it’s completely unrelated to anything or anyone else.

NBC New York:

A suspected terrorist parked a van packed with what he thought was a 1,000-pound bomb next to the Federal Reserve building in Lower Manhattan and tried to detonate it Wednesday morning before he was arrested in a terror sting operation, authorities said.

The suspect, 21-year-old Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, is a Bangladeshi national who came to the U.S. on a student visa in January for the specific purpose of launching a terror attack here, authorities said. He allegedly told an undercover agent last month that he hoped the attack would disrupt the presidential election, saying “You know what, this election might even stop,” according to the criminal complaint against him.

The complaint said Nafis wrote a statement claiming responsibility for what he thought would be the Fed attack, saying he wanted to “destroy America” by going after its economy. He referred to “our beloved Sheikh Osama bin Laden” in the statement, which was stored on a thumb drive.

Hey, did you know Obama killed Bin Laden? Just ask him. Or go see Zero Dark Thirty, coming to a theater near you this December 19.

Ho-hum. Yet another attempted “terrorist” “attack” that those racist wingnuts can seize on to say there’s some sort of problem. Shouldn’t you teabaggers be whining about your precious dead ambassador? Boo-hoo!

Has Romney said anything about this yet? Technically, it doesn’t count as a news story until Rommey says something about it that liberals and the media (PTR) don’t like, which therefore makes it a “gaffe.”

P.S. Binders.
