Exclamation Holy... CRAP!

Sounds like NY GOT ANOTHER CLOSE CALL...

Judging from the modus operandi what do you think, it's a muslim extremists attempt or an "inside job" (national terrorists)?

It was just a matter of time before this garbage started again.

Latest news are that it was made out of propane tanks, a few gasoline, and some fireworks... devastating at close range, but no typical terrorist work. Not even ANFO in it... claims of responsibility by Al-Qaeda and the Talibans are "not to be taken into account". The car was found full of fingerprints and DNA traces, which might help to catch the responsible, whom was even filmed out by a security camera: a white man appearently in his 40s. A national terrorist, Tim McVeigh style sicko?

I think we're just waiting for an Obama administration statement saying that it was 'in no way shape or form a terrorist attack'.

Just like all the other 'definitely not terrorist attacks' that have happened while he's in office.

It's most certainly an act of terrorism. The questions now are who, and why. From what I've seen, whoever is responable is not very bright.

That was an ATTEMPTED terror attack. They are already detaining a man who was trying to flee to Pakistan via Dubai: Faisal Shahzad, a US citizen of Pakistani origin, who had already traveled to Pakistan in the past and is thus suspected to have been doctrinated with radical islam views and have maybe followed some "training course" in some terrorist camp.

He must not have been a honor student, for sure.

Well, I was wrong. The Obama administration said that it was a horrible act of attempted terrorism.

Then implied that they believed he was with the Tea Party movement.

Oh wait, now there's this guy from Pakistan who collaborated on the plot. Oops.

Thumbs down Oh, c'mon!

Let's be serious, kids: plot MY ASS!

What we have here is some idiot who got too much influenced by religious extremism and attempted what is clearly a 100% amateurish and lone-wolf-style attack. If he had been helped by some serious terrorist organization, like Al-Qaeda or the Talibans, he would have had the materials, and the knowledge, to succeed in his attempt. Instead, he just put together whatever he could find that might go boom (a pair of propane tanks, fireworks, gasoline), and something that he THOUGHT that could go boom (there was a bag of fertilizer... and not even of the kind that contains ammonium nitrate!). It's just like the guy who tried to blow himself up in front of a military base in Milan last year: I could have done better myself.

Let's face it: this guy is either a complete idiot, or he was homesick the day his terrorism trainers lectured IED building 101.
