How Many More Times Do We Have To Learn That Warnings About Possible Terrorists Were Ignored



NEW YORK – Bomb suspect Ahmad Khan Rahami’s dad contacted the FBI in 2014 to say his son was a terrorist, but he later retracted it.

And Rahami’s wife left the US a few days before the NY, NJ bombings, an official said.

A notebook found on Rahami contained ramblings about terrorists and also mentioned Anwar al-Awlaki, the Yemeni-American imam who was a spokesman for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, according to a law enforcement official.

The notebook, which also referred to the Boston Marathon bombers, had a bullet hole; it’s not clear whether that occurred during Monday’s shootout between police and Rahami.

The reference to Awlaki, who was killed in 2011 and has been a source of inspiration for many terrorist attacks, appears to help bolster an emerging view among investigators that the weekend attacks weren’t ISIS-inspired.

Meanwhile, a law enforcement source who previously said the notes were found with an unexploded pressure cooker bomb now said the notes weren’t found with the bomb.

What was Rahami’s motive? Was he working alone? Why did he make lengthy trips to Afghanistan and Pakistan?

These are some of the questions that have emerged in the wake of the capture of the man suspected of planting bombs in New York and New Jersey over the weekend.


Move along.  All is transparent.  Nothing more to see here.  

This is not the first time the FBI has been contacted with  a terrorist tips and released the one in question as a suspect.   Each time they have released a possible terrorist suspect, people have died or been seriously injured.  How many more are out there thanks to Obama’s directives to suppress, eliminate, or redirect complaints about terrorists?

Of course ISIS would take responsibility.  Their leadership is in tatters at the moment and they are needing to still be seen as a relevant terrorist group.  But realistically, groups like al Qaeda, ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood, Boko Haram, Al-Nusra Front, Ansar al-Sharia, Hamas are only a few who should be or are termed terrorist organizations. If the imams and cells practice a strict interpretation of Islam (which most do in some capacity), then they should be termed radical Islamists. The groups spring up, decline, merge and change like viruses. Like Hydra, remove one head of the snake and more simply move up or groups merge. Like any dread disease, measures have to be found to eradicate or restrain the root cause. We already know how unsuccessful ignoring or attempting to reason with these spawns of evil has been.

In my other post I did state we need to inform someone but make no mistake I absolutely believe we as citizens have been given the right by our constitution to protect ourselves and our families. Being prepared and alert has become a reality not an imaginary crisis. Obviously, this administration has made it very difficult for us with confidence to expect governmental national security agencies to follow through even if the agents tried to do their jobs.

    How many? When there’s a mushroom cloud over a city. Then the left will be screaming.

    Did he have a job or was he on taxpayer assistance such as welfare?

    Until we have a change in administration, such as a Trump presidency, this will continue. I’m sure Trump will demand that reported terrorists be acknowledged and not written off. it’s really a crime the way Obama protects these Islamic terrorists at the cost of our lives.

    I hope when the SOB recovers he can explain the brainwashing techniques the Talban (or the creeps du jour) used to screw up his mind. I mean the kid comes out of that shit hole Afghanistan at age 7 and comes to the freest country on earth, or it was prior to 2009, has everything he wants and needs. He had plenty of friends, got a girl friend pregnant, then married another one. He sure didn’t look like he lacked nourishment either. So he comes back from one of his little trips and wants to blow people up. Is it because we are spending our treasure and losing lives in Afghanistan to try to make the place inhabitable. Is that what got his panties in a twist? Well, if that is the case, build the goddamned wall and throw the suckers out.
    All of ’em.

      Amen. IR. Yeah. It’s a really good bet he never starved a day after he reached our shores. He is messed up all right but it was genetic not environmental.

    His wife was denied entry back into the US after the bombing (she was visiting her family back in bugeffistan) so she flew to Dubai, went into the FBI office there, and gave the Feebies statements. It appears, on the surface, that she is trying to cooperate with the feds.

    How far back do you want to go???
    Remember. An FBI agent sent a message from Arizona about the curious arab who wanted to take flying lessons in a passenger jet but only to learn how to fly it, not take off or land.
    THAT should’ve rang some bells, don’t you think?

    • I.R. Wayright says:

      Jamie Gorelick put the “wall” between the FBI and CIA so they could not cooperate on an investigation. If they had been allowed to look at the files on Zacarias Moussaoui’s laptop, 9-11 might have been preventable. But try telling that to a 9-11 “truther.”
      Oh, they will say, It was an inside job. Well, I just gave you the name of the insider who screwed the pooch. Do you want her address too?

    Well that is a piece of good news IF the FBI is legitimately trying to get answers not cover up
