Five Years After Fail on JTTF, Mo Mo Case Shows Portland Officials STILL Not Serious About Terrorism

When the moment called for sending a strong message that Portland was serious about yanking the welcome mat for terrorists, Mayor Sam Adams sent the Somali/Muslim community a gay man, a woman and “peace keeper.”

Adams said he and Commissioner Amanda Fritz and Police Chief Mike Reese will be doing outreach to leadership in the Somali community.

These people show understanding about Islam by completely biffing the most basic understanding of Islam’s beliefs about gays, women and wimpies? I thought the medium was the message. This decision to make himself, Amanda Fritz and Mike Reese the liaisons to the Somali/Muslim community is tantamount to the city sending a black councilman to a KKK confab or Sam Adams to a MENSA meeting. I’m surprised he didn’t decide to send a Jew! (Gads, is one of them Jewish?)

 I’m not saying all Muslims are bigots, I’m saying if you want to talk to the devout Muslims and Imams you send a man, thank-you-very-much. Of course it’s not enlightened. It’s not right. But that’s the way it is. Sam’s homage to political correctness notwithstanding, THEY DON’T want to talk to the chick or the gay guy. 

Adams is more worried about the Somali community who produced this would be bomber than about the thousands of HIS CONSTITUENTS who would have died at the hands of a member of the Somali community. He cares more about political correctness than about being correct.
Adams SHOULD have angrily denounced the attempted bombing of his citizens. He SHOULD  have said he won’t rest until justice is done. He SHOULD have apologized for not being a part of the effort to bring in this would be bomber. 
When we needed a firm hand Adams sent a limp wrist. 
But to show his ‘toughness’ and his ‘seriousness’ what did Adams do? He vowed to redouble police patrols to —-watch mosques to stop any “stupid copycatting” of the attempted arson of the mosque where Mo Mo the accused bomber prayed in Corvallis.
There was room to do both but he chose only one side.  In their zeal to look politically correct, Portland officials–especially Sam Adams–show they don’t understand the threat. And now apparently Adams thinks the rest of us are to blame! 

“Bad actions by one member of any group does not and should not be generalized or applied more widely to other members of that same group,” he said. “Otherwise, as the biggest racial group in Portland, we European-Americans would be in deep trouble.”

Pardon me, as a card carrying “European-American,” it was “European Americans” and the rest of the hue of humanity who WERE in deep trouble Friday night and our Mayor didn’t know the threat because he was too busy riding a bicycle while singing, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” on the way to the tram to attend a planning seminar.

The bombing plot was “very unnerving,” he said. “It came as a shock to me, as I’m sure it did for most Portlanders,”

We don’t ask much of our elected officials. Safety is their number one job. And Adams and the rest didn’t want to be a part of stopping this threat to our safety. This is what he told the Zero over the weekend about belonging to the Joint Terrorism Task Force:

Adams said the city still operates under the agreement reached with federal authorities at that time [which is not to be a part of it]. He stressed that he has much more faith in the Obama administration and the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s office now than he did in 2005.

See what I mean? This guys really does his homework, doesn’t he?
Convicted: Pete Seda
In 2005, Tom Potter, Randy Leonard and Sam approved pulling out of the Joint Terrorism Task Force with the FBI because the FBI was serious about combating radical jihad (Another reason: Tom Potter couldn’t get a security clearance and was miffed at the FBI over it). Portland pulled the plug on its involvement with the JTTF in year seven of a nine year long investigation into animal and eco terrorism, AFTER the Portland seven were uncovered, AFTER the arrest of Maher Mike Hawash for terrorism, AFTER the Al Haramain “charity” was busted for sending money to terrorists in Chechnya AFTER the Bly training camp bust… the list goes on. This is little old OREGON! What more of a sign do these guys need to take terrorism seriously?

This city, county and state use the taxes of the law abiding to encourage illegal behavior by currying favor with illegal aliens and other law breakers. 
Somali women requested and got special hours to swim at local pools–paying for it themselves. 
Somali children in Portland’s schools are allowed to pray IN SCHOOL DURING SCHOOL HOURS.
Illegal aliens and immigrants were first in line to get the flu shots to fight off the threatened pandemic last winter in Portland.
In the affidavit this is what the FBI claims Mo Mo said about killing women and children,
“You know there’s gonna be a lot of children there?” an undercover FBI operative asked Mohamud. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded that he was looking for a “huge mass that will…be attacked in their own element with their families celebrating the holidays.” Further discussing the attack, Mohamud allegedly stated, “…it’s in Oregon; and Oregon like you know, nobody ever thinks about it.”
No, the only one who doesn’t think about Oregon is our elected “leaders.” The rest of us are only too aware of the dangers of their ignorance.

Mo Mo Has Himself a Gitmo Attorney

Welcome to Portland where public defenders think jihadists at Gitmo represent the “public.” We’ve talked about it on the program many times. So I’m not at all surprised to read it in the Zero:

Steven T. Wax,  the federal public defender for the District of Oregon, said in anticipation of his office handling today’s arraignment, that Stephen Sady, the chief deputy federal public defender, “has been working on the case this weekend.”

In a news release Sunday, representatives of the Somali American community said Mohamud’s father asked the media to “please respect his privacy and to direct any media questions to Attorney Stephen R. Sady.”
Sady was one of 13 Oregon lawyers who volunteered to defend prisoners held in extrajudicial detention at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. Wax represented Brandon Mayfield, a Portland attorney, who was arrested in the 2004 Madrid train bombings, charges that were later debunked and dismissed

If you’re an accused jihadist you need an attorney. I just wish we didn’t have to pay for it. Oh, and we will. We will. Three halals and a cot AND an attorney.

Mo Mo Was on No Fly List

Tried to get to a job in Alaska to raise money for jihad when he discovered they wouldn’t let him on a plane. Strangely there was another jihadist in Alaska who was arrested recently. I wonder…
At least in this case the ‘no fly’ list worked. Can we get our privacy back now?

Creative Writing for School—and Jihadists

Stories over the weekend mentioned that accused bomber Mo Mo was especially good in creative writing classes that he took at Westview High School in the Portland suburbs. According to the FBI affidavit and jihad watch organizations, Mo Mo put his talents to use writing for jihad magazines. Among the titles of the jihad fourth estate for which Mo Mo claimed to write: “Jihad Recollections” and “Inspire,” the online magazine which helped ‘inspire’ the Fort Hood shooter and the Christmas bomber. “Inspire Magazine” is fully supported by American Imam, Anwar Al Awlaki, who helped radicalize a few of the recent terrorists and now sits in Yemen out of reach of US officials some of whom have labeled him the most dangerous man in the world:

Mohamud and the FBI undercover operative then agreed to meet in Portland in July 2010. At this meeting, Mohamud allegedly told the FBI undercover operative that he had written articles that were published in Jihad Recollections, an online magazine that advocated violent jihad. Mohamud also indicated that he wanted to become “operational.” Asked what he meant by “operational,” Mohamud stated that he wanted to put an “explosion” together, but needed help.

According to the FBI Mohamud wrote under the nom de plume Ibnul Mubarak for his pieces in “Jihad Recollections.”
The man who started both magazines is an American by the name of Samir Khan. Here’s what the folks the Global Jihad watch have to say about Khan:

Samir Khan run several Jihadi websites supporting Al Qaeda that were all shut down under the net name Inshallashaheed (Martyr with God’s Will) or Mujahid fe Sabeelillah(Holly Warrior in the Service of God) when, in 10/2007, he was identified by a New York Times reporter Michael Moss as Samir Khan, probably disrupting an FBI investigation into the case.

Samir Khan’s websites, FBU believes, encouraged young American Muslims to join the Global Jihad and were influential in recruiting the Minneapolis Network. Samir Khan was never charged of any terror related charges in USA.

A Senior law enforcement official said, on Monday 07/19/2010, he believes Samir Khan, who reportedly moved to Yemen to study Arabic, is the editor and the writer of the new Jihadi  on line INSPIRE MAGAZINE with the full support of Anwar al-Awlaki.
Someone also wrote for Inspire magazine: the Christmas Day Bomber.

The Wall Street Journal (here) provides a little context for the jihadi fourth estate.

The most unnerving pages of the magazine for an American reader are those devoted to advice to the aspiring suburban jihadist, who is encouraged to attach large, sharp blades to the front of a pick-up truck “to mow down as many people as possible in a crowd” and to use other gruesome homemade devices to act upon fantasies of violent martyrdom. Soulful photographs of bearded men in robes and headdresses alternate with translations of the writings of high-end theoreticians of “individual jihad” like Abu Musab Al-Suri.

Jarret Brachman, a scholar on counter-terrorism, recently described Inspire as a dangerous advance over previous forms of English-language jihadist propaganda. “Whereas previous publications used to focus on making complex arguments and exploring sophisticated issues in-depth,” he wrote, “this series is focused on mobilizing: on actualizing potential. They believe that there are a lot of loaded guns out there in the form of angry kids in the West. They just need someone to pull the trigger: Al-Qaeda believes they can be this trigger.”

They Called Him "Mo Mo" at OSU’s Buxton Hall Dorm

The FBI claims Mohamed Mohamud called himself a rapper and if they hadn’t helped him blow up a bunch of people in jihad he would have gotten some of his “brothers” to hook him up with some “AK’s” to get it done anyway. That has come as quite a surprise to at least one student who shared a floor with “Mo Mo” as he was called. He is likable, funny and caused no problems says the student.

"The Tree" Ceremony


Remember now. This was no Christmas Tree. This was no Holiday Tree. This was just “The Tree.” I’ve pointed it out several times on the air and on the blog but for those new readers this is the proof of what Mo Mo wanted to blow up.

Mo Mo in Court Today at 1:30pm

“Mohamud is expected to make his initial appearance in federal court in Portland on Monday. He faces a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of the charge of attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.”

Do you think the guy who set some debris on fire at Mo Mo’s Mosque will get a stiffer sentence for committing a “hate” crime?

OSU Says Mo Mo Isn’t Ours

Oregon State University is quickly trying to distance itself from Mo Mo. The man who conspired to blow up thousands of Portlanders at the Tree Lighting ceremony,  is described by the FBI as a student at OSU. OSU has issued a statement saying Mohamud hasn’t been a student since last month and doesn’t have a declared major.

The Mohammed/Mohamed/Mohamad/Mohamud Test

A kid from Somalia comes to America at age 5 and is miraculously radicalized by the age of 15 and ready to commit violent jihad by 19 because…? Why? What happened to Mo Mo (as his friends at the dorm called him–see post nearby) to cause him to suddenly go batty four years ago? We get a clue from the FBI document:

“Mohamud said that it was when he turned 15, and he explained that during Ramadan someone told him about the martyrs and the virtues, and Mohamud, “didn’t even need to hear about anything else.” Elaborating, Mohamud said, “this is a decision I made and if, if this [the truth] you know…and if you don’t sacrifice your own kids, when will victory come you know. There has to be sacrifice before you know any progress is made anywhere, anything.”

I’d like to know who “that someone” was and what mosque he’s headlining because I think the FBI would like to talk to that purveyor of “The Religion of Peace” about tolerating violent jihad.(see nearby post about the OSU Muslim Student Association). The point is when Mohamud speaks in the affidavit of wanting us out of ‘his’ land of Afghanistan, the Somali born lad isn’t referring to where he spent his toddlerhood, he’s talking about countries run by Muslims. 

It’s about religion. This is a religious war they’re waging on us. Get it? 
In his book of a few years ago, “America Alone,” Mark Steyn writes about the obvious clues we’re given about violent jihad. He calls it the jihadi reasonable man –or Mohammed– test. He writes:

The mosques are recruiters for the jihad and play an important role in ideological subordination and cell discipline. In globalization terms, that’s a perfect model. Unlike the Soviets, it’s a franchise business rather than owner-operated; the Commies had “deep sleepers” who had to be “controlled” in a very hierarchical chain. But who needs that with Islam? Not long after Sept. 11, I said, just as an aside, that these days whenever something goofy turns up on the news, chances are it involves some fellow called Mohammed. It was a throwaway line, but if you want to compile chapter and verse, you can add to the list every week.
  • – A plane flies into the World Trade Center? Mohammed Atta.
  • – The DC sniper? John Allen Muhammed.
  • – A guy fatally stabs a Dutch movie director? Mohammed Bouyeri.
  • – A gunman shoots up the El Al counter at Los Angeles airport? Hesham Mohamed Hedayet.
  • – A terrorist slaughters dozens in Bali? Noordin Mohamed.
  • – A British subject self-detonates in a Tel Aviv bar? Asif Mohammed Hanif.
  • – A terrorist cell bombs the U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania? Ali Mohamed.
  • – A gang rapist preys on the women of Sydney? Mohammed Skaf.
  • – A Canadian terror cell is arrested for plotting to bomb Ottawa and behead the prime minister? Mohammed Dirie, Amin Mohamed Durrani and Yasim Abdi Mohamed.

These last three represent a “broad strata” of Canadian society, according to Mike McDonnell, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and a man who must have aced sensitivity training class. To the casual observer, the broad strata would seem to be a very singular stratum: In their first appearance in court, 12 men arrested in that Ontario plot requested the Koran.
Where was our boy radicalized? We might want to check in with the Muslim Student Association and its home Mosque in Corvallis (see nearby post).

No Set Up: "He Dialed the Cell Phone Which He Believed Would Detonate the Vehicle…" Twice.

That’s right, the young man who reached out to his buddies in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia and eventually an FBI informant to plot Jihad against the Great Satan (uh, that’s us), dialed the number on his cellphone detonator AGAIN when it didn’t vaporize thousands of Portlanders the first time. So says the affidavit in support of the single charge (!) against a 19 year old Somalia born kid who came to America and then turned on it.

On Friday, Mohamud parked what he thought was a bomb-laden van near the ceremony and then went to a nearby train station, where he dialed a cell phone that he believed would detonate the vehicle.

 
Apparently Mohamed Mohamud decided he’d thank the only country that had given his family help by blowing up thousands of American human beings –among them my nephews and my friend’s daughter–at the lighting of “The Tree” (see The Tree post nearby) in downtown Portland. I guess that whole Black Hawk Down incident in 1993 or pirating wasn’t enough payback or something. 
Mohamud parked the van on 6th and Yamhill in a 15 minute parking spot with the intention of timing the bomb to coincide with a full light rail train stopped at Portland’s “Living Room.” This was for maximum bloodletting.
When asked if he could stand seeing body parts and blood he said, “Do you remember when 9/11 happened when those people were jumping from the skyscrapers…I thought that was awesome.”

As he promised his FBI informants,

“[I]t’s gonna be a fireworks show…a spectacular show…New York Times will give it two thumbs up”

Mohamud bought parts for the bomb (a couple examples of which are nearby), took part in a test firing of the a bomb in the middle of Lincoln County and took obvious glee in doing so. According to a KGW news account, Mohamud actually texted old school friends to find out where he could fire guns without anyone hearing. The FBI continues the narrative of the test firing,
According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack. Afterwards, on the drive back to Corvallis, undercover FBI operatives questioned Mohamud as to whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in the upcoming attack in Portland. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded, “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured.”
Mohamud told the FBI he wanted to leave after the attack because he’d “never liked living in the United States.” Wish he’d thought of that before he decided to take out a few thousand people.

He’s so far been charged with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. What, no hate crime charges?







Yelling “Allahu Akbar!” — Arabic for “God is great!” — Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors.

You people who think that this punk wouldn’t have conceived of doing anything improper if only the FBI hadn’t goaded him are delusional.

Somali Community: Swimming Pools, Movie Stars

Mohamud told the FBI he wanted to leave after the attack because he’d “never liked living in the United States.” Wish he’d thought of that before he decided to take out a few thousand people.
