Justin Raimondo: Times Square Bombing Story Doesn't Quite Add Up

President Obama said this to the Jonas Brothers on Saturday, with the help from the Daily Show writers:

"Sasha and Malia are huge fans, but boys, don't get any ideas. Two words for you: predator drones. You will never see it coming. You think I'm joking?"

I thought it was in such a crude, bad taste.

On Sunday, a Pakistani man (US citizen) tried to blow up an SUV in Times Square, New York.'s Justin Raimondo has this to say:

Faisal Shahzad: An Ordinary Man: From Wall Street to Waziristan: a story that doesn’t quite add up (5/5/2010

"The day after President Obama made his Predator joke at the White House Correspondents dinner, Faisal Shahzad, a Pakistani-American, was in the middle of Times Square trying to blow the place up. I’m not saying there was any connection, although you never know: yet there is indeed a link between the casual arrogance that allowed an intelligent man like our chief executive to joke about a deadly weapon that has killed more innocent civilians in Pakistan than actual terrorists.

"It’s why they hate us." [It is "imperial hubris", according to Justin. The article continues.]

He says things don't quite add up in this case. Just like the previous "terrorism" case of a Nigerian young man trying to blow up an airplane with the bomb in his pants. (That story has gone dead very quickly, hasn't it?)
