Good work catching this nut.

Educated,probably as an affirmative action case,at one of the best universities in America and this is how he thanks us?

Reminds me of the Road Runner and the Coyote cartoon series...only this is a bit more serious!

No, if Allah could see what you've been doing, he'd wring your neck, you nutcase.

Somehow, I don't think a day will be named after him like Guy Fawkes.

I don't like the "reasons" I am hearing, but blowing up the Pentagon could be patriotic if done by the right person. But all we know about him is what the FBI told the press, and its not entrapment "this time". I am so not reassured.

Lieberman2012: "Educated,probably as an affirmative action case,at one of the best universities in America and this is how he thanks us?"

Thanks 'US'? Whom should he be thanking, being an American citizen himself. And why do you assume his education was the result of affirmative action?

The guy is a nut, and dangerous, that much is clear. Not much else is.

So, you have a personal line to Allah? tell us more about it.

Willi - No personal line to Allah, I just know he wouldn't approve of cowardly terrorist acts.

Asked at one point about possibly killing women and children, Ferdaus allegedly said all unbelievers of Islam were his enemies. Ah yes, this idiot freak SOB born in the USA but brainwashed into hating all UNBLELIEVERS of ISLAM?? WTF?? Time to make more room over there in Guantanamo base, Cuba, because scum like this do not deserve to be pampered in the US justice system, need to have a good old fashioned prison time, to say, soften him up, get lots and lots of information out of this SOB and make sure we get the rest of his buddies who also want to attack the USA etc...from the inside, because this is just one SOB brainwashed by Al Qaeda but if we are so stupid to believe that the UK, France, Germany etc..do not have hundreds if not thousands of other so called born in Western countries, knowing the language and culture but still brain washed into hating all of their NON MUSLIM folk around them, well, well, better to learn from Israel, at least they seem to know a thing or two about finding terrorists and dealing with terrorists. Good job FBI and Homeland Security!!

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

Thank you Allah. These days Allah is working with FBI to find those Muslims terrorists. Soon Allah will act in the mosques who preach hatred and making false intrepretation of Quran. Poor Muhammad is crying now by seeing the fellow mulims in the world the way they are acting..

No God will ask his followers to go and Kill other religious people. If he wants He can do it by him/herself with out the help of those terrorist. Because Allah is all powerful and the creator of this world and these poor human beings. It is common sense.

Yes, time to become even more like the enemy. Great Idea. Follow that path and any nut blowing up the Pentagon becomes a good thing, not just a patriot!

This nutjob essentially filled a spot at Northwestern that could have gone to an American citizen who would have graduated,went to work in the real world,made an actual contribution to society,paid taxes,started a family.All the things my fellow Democrats say are most important.Now he will cost the system hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees and to keep as a ward of the state.

This guy is an American citizen. Why are you so hung up on him having gone to university? He's a loony zealot who got nabbed for plotting terror. Affirmative action has nothing to do with it.

1 ( +2 / -1 )

I really doubt Arab Americans even qualify for any affirmative action, they are considered white, not Latinos, not Blacks not Native Americans that are under represented in American colleges now, so time to forget about this so called affirmative action bs but I do agree, another ungrateful US citizen, happens to be born in the USA, enjoy the freedoms of living in the USA but brainwashed to hate America and all the so called Non Muslim, non believers, real nice religion of peace right??

If he gets the right lawer things will work out.

Other websites say he was formally charged for vandalism while in HS. At Northwestern he was busted for running a red light and cops found 2 bags of weed in his car.Sounds like a real loser.Was in a band - "Goosepimp orchestra" but quit , after finding his ''spiritual side.It involved a search for C4 and and blowing up buildings.

Sounds like a typical American university student. What are you getting at Lieberman? That the authorities should have seen this Muslim guy coming, never let him into college, and jailed him for life for exhibiting terrorist tendencies like smoking pot?

-2 ( +0 / -2 )

Plasticmonkey,

lieberman is doing his best to dance around the race issue without being overtly racist. But it's pretty obvious if you read between the lines, that's where's he's at. He would prefer that college be reserved for white males, like the good 'ol days.

Good to know they stopped a couple more. Just hope they can catch more before any of them are successful. Funny, seems like Mohammed would have approved of his actions and so would his allah. The only way for Islam to not promote the murder of people who don't follow Islam is for it to be totally built from scratch and the qur'an tossed out the window. Islam was never "arabacised" because its founder was born in Mecca... seems to be a lot that some folks keep on trying to deny in order to "protect" the evil actions that the qur'an quite clearly advocates. The denial is so ridiculous its like people trying to convince everyone the sky is red while we're looking right at it and can see its blue..

@Serrano you obviously have not read the qur'an from cover to cover nor have you really looked into Mohammeds life, history or the hadiths written about him. There are "holy" men in the worlds history that have influenced others in a very positive light, but I can positively guarantee that Mohammed was not one of them.

Twenty-six and he lived with his parents. How did he pay for university? Northwestern isn't exactly cheap.And he was out of state.looks more and more like a colossal waste of taxpayer's money.How did this loser,with a vandalism charge on his record from his high school days,get into such a prestigious university? Why does Islam turn ordinary Americans against their own country?

@Lieberman

Why does Islam turn ordinary Americans against their own country?

Ordinary? You've been ranting about how out of step this guy is with your ideal of white bread America. Your analysis is getting curiouser and curiouser.

If you want to make a case that radical Islam is an attractive option for disturbed weirdos, I can entertain that possibility. But a dark-skinned man attending a prestigious university, smoking pot, playing in a rock band, and living with his parents hardly qualify as red flags.

Anyway, they got him, so you can sleep a little easier tonight knowing that Obama's justice department is on the ball. G'night!
