Looks like Muslim terrorism

Looks like the Manhattan bombing may be a “terror cell,” and the police are seeking an immigrant form Afghanistan in connection with the bombing.

I bet some voters are thinking that Trump’s ban on immigration from Muslim countries is making more sense.

* * *

It’s a pretty inept “terror cell.” Most of their bombs never exploded, no one was killed, and the FBI has already figured out who they are.

  1. We need smarter imported immigrant terrorists. I’m very disappointed in the low quality of the ones we already have.

  2. Hope Trump uses this in the debates. Hillary defending open-borders, BLM and Islamic immigration for 2 hours will be poison to undecided voters.

  3. “It’s a pretty inept “terror cell.” Most of their bombs never exploded, no one was killed, and the FBI has already figured out who they are.”

    I was wondering how they got on to them. From what I gather police where checking cars on Verrazano Bridge and probably racially profiled these dudes who were hi-fiving each other and they were busted.

    The police describe the bombs as crude; the NYT as “an unusual degree of competence”. Regardless the actual delivery mechanism of them seems to have been very ineffective.

    It is interesting that they didnt peruse the Nice option of weaponizing a trunk in a crowd.

    • It appears the idiot left his flip phone on the scene. I don’t understand anything about any of this, and I don’t know if that’s true but if it is he really does have maybe a 70 IQ.

      Do you think maybe you could exercise some restraint and not give psychopaths any ideas?

      • I think its a jump ball. Not as simple as leaving behind a phone. On the other hand the plan to avoid detection is based on the hope the phone will be destroyed.

        ” The day Ahmad Khan Rahami allegedly planted two bombs in Chelsea — one of which detonated on West 23rd Street — two thieves accidentally helped to disable his second pressure cooker bomb left inside a rolling suitcase on West 27th Street, sources said.

        The young men, who sources described as being well-dressed, opened the bag and took the bomb out, sources said, before placing the explosive into a garbage bag and walking away with the rolling suitcase.

        In doing so, investigators believe they inadvertently disabled the explosive, sources said. That allowed investigators to examine the cellphone attached to the bomb intact and discover that it was connected to the family of Rahami.

        So maybe its American patsies getting expert instruction.

  4. Bill Ayer and his friends were smart but they sucked at terrorism too. Maybe because they were humanities-majors. Even the Unibomber sucked at terrorism. Altrighters would probably suck at it, but NRxers would make awesome terroristic supervillains. Or suppose the SlateStarCodex people went evil … that would be really scary.

    • The best terrorists were the IRA. intelligent, nihilistic and insane. No mercy, absolutely vicious.

      after them came the Jewish terrorists in pre- Israel Palestine who were also very good.


      September 19, 2016 at 2:32 pm

      • Didn’t the IRA give beforehand-warnings about bombs in public places in England? So kind of merciful. And the Irgun and Sterners targeted British colonial officials and military stuff, so arguably guerrilla war rather than “terrorism”.


        September 19, 2016 at 4:44 pm

      • I don’t think that the IRA warned anyone before they would kneecap victims. Remember that? they used to take power saws and slice through people’s kneecaps.

        I consider guerillas to be a form of terrorist. they used political violence as Terror.

  5. Obama just tweeted:

    Nice clock Ahmad! Care to bring it to the White House?

  6. I guess the magic dirt isn’t working.


    September 19, 2016 at 10:23 am

    • Studies have shown that it takes approximately five years for Muslim immigrants from war-torn third world hellholes to adopt the values of white middle class liberals, but this can only happen if they’re placed in sufficiently tolerant environments. The problem for poor Ahmad seems to be that the police in Elizabeth, NJ discriminated against his family’s chicken stand.

  7. Or not inept at all. Simply a probe to gauge response. Underestimating the enemy got us here in the first place.

    when afghanistan sends us their jihadis they’re not sending us their best. sad.

    in all seriousness these guys apparently came to america as kids, meaning the scrutiny on migration was on their parents. that’s another reason immigration needs to be limited. will the kids turn out like capt. khan, or these clowns?

    • “when afghanistan sends us their jihadis they’re not sending us their best. sad.”

      Hilarious! That’s tweetable!

  9. it turns out the guys that saved the day at multiple locations are homeless*. they were picking through trash, spotted nice bags, and opened them. dumb luck saved the day.

    *if any of them are vets… oh man is trump going to dominate a news cycle.

    • What are you talking about?

  10. They caught him.

  11. This is for the Soviet buddy Yakov.

    Not all Muslims have dysfunctional societies riddled with terwa-wahabbism. Central Asian Uzbekistan deals with Muslim riff-raff far better than Israel and even better than the Obama States.

    And yet, he derides his Central Asian Tajiki and Buuky buddies as backwards.

    And you notice, these Jews are good friends with good Muslims. Only in Anglo-Prole societies, where multicult liberals produce the kind of garbage we are experiencing today.

  12. “It’s a pretty inept “terror cell.””

    This is the weakness of the ISIS strategy. Al Qaeda ran training camps in Afghanistan for years. It is estimated they trained about 20,000. The 9/11 terrorists were the best 19 out of those 20,000. They were well trained. Since 9/11 terror groups have had trouble getting well trained terrorist into the USA.

    ISIS is basically the amateur hour of terrorism, but they can still be dangerous as San Bernardino showed.


    September 19, 2016 at 7:04 pm

    • ISIS is mostly made of up of younger individuals, what we call millennials here.
