The American Pravda remains quiet once again on a news event which should be shouted from the rooftops. We have an enemy who is bound and determined to kill innocent Americans; that enemy is radical Islam, but our corrupt media doesn't like to discuss this fact.
President Obama can state that the war on terror is no longer taking place; instead, we are in the midst of an "overseas contingency operation". This ridiculous terminology that he is using would be funny if the circumstances weren't so serious. Sugar-coating an enemy who lives for nothing other than to cause mass casualties to our citizens is not going to make the dangers we face any less real.
A potential major terrorist attack was thwarted this time. Only this time it would have to be classified as a "domestic contingency operation" because the target was New York City.
Read about the story that the corrupt mainstream media refuses to dwell on, via Jihad Watch:
New York jihad suspect's computer had info on sports stadiums, fashion sites
"Imagine the havoc if Najibullah Zazi had succeeded in exploding a bomb at a baseball or football game. Yet this story is getting little or no attention, either from the mainstream media or the large 'conservative' blogs. Everyone knows there is no terror threat, eh? Michael Moore was right all along.
An update on this story. 'Suspect's Computer Said to Show Sports Stadiums, Fashion Sites: Officials Report Denver Man Sent Texts Suggesting Attack Coming; 'Wedding Cake' Is Ready,' by Richard Esposito, Brian Ross and Clayton Sandell for ABC News, September 19:
'A computer belonging to alleged al Qaeda suspect Najibullah Zazi showed he had researched baseball and football stadiums and sites used in the recent Fashion Week event in New York City, law enforcement officials tell ABCNews.com.
Zazi, 24, was scheduled to be questioned for a fourth straight day today by FBI agents, but failed to show up this morning. Asked if his client had been taken into custody overnight, Zazi's lawyer Arthur Folsom said, "Read between the lines."
While officials say they do not know the targets of the alleged plot, the contents of Zazi's computer are considered a valuable insight into what he might have been planning.
After first denying any ties to al Qaeda, Zazi has now admitted certain ties developed during trips to Pakistan, law enforcement officials told ABCNews.com.
The officials said text messages sent by Zazi suggest the plot was nearing the attack phase. One message said the "wedding cake is ready," which authorities say may have been code to indicate the attack was ready. Al Qaeda operatives have frequently used references to weddings to disguise planned terror attacks....
A recipe for homemade explosives found on Zazi's computer would have produced a bomb of the same size and type used in London, authorities said.
The suicide bombers in London used backpacks and plastic containers to carry the explosive mixtures.
Raids in New York led to the discovery of 14 new backpacks....'"
UPDATE from article, via NY Daily News:
"FBI agents on Saturday night arrested a reputed Al Qaeda terror cell operative who researched baseball stadiums on a personal computer that also held interior maps of several New York venues, sources told the Daily News.
Suspected mastermind Najibullah Zazi, 24, and his father, Mohammed Wali Zazi, were handcuffed as authorities raided Zazi's suburban Denver home, television broadcasts showed."
