No Indication of Terrorism?

If this isn't the most stupid statement to come out of the FBI in recent memory, we don't know what is. When a plane crashes into a building nowadays, you don't go around denying it had anything to do with terrorism, even if the weather reports might indicate a light haze over New York City. Because god forbid one or two of the people on board have muslim surnames or were recent converts to islam or any other of a dozen possible scenarios.

How about you conduct an investigation before you run to the press?

Coverage at Breitbart. com and Drudge.

UPDATE: Information is coming out about the plane being owned by a New York Yankee pitcher who may have been at the controls. As to Lefty's assertion that we are jumping to conclusions, we are the ones urging the Feebs and National Security agencies NOT to be so quick to discount any and all possibilities. After all, we have the feds to thank for these statements of recent history:
  • "There's no reason to believe this was terrorism" - LAX shooting
  • "There's no reason to believe this was terrorism" - Seattle shooting
  • "There's no reason to believe this was terrorism" - SF car rampage
Each and every one of which proved to be completely wrong.

Off Topic Sorry

Well, it appears now that the plane was piloted by Cory Lidle, pitcher for the NY Yankees! They've found his passport on the street below, as well as the plane being registered (or about to be) in his name. There's also supposed to be 4 dead, and 9 injured - including 4 firefighters, all at the hospital.

So while it appears no terrorism action here, just possible pilot error, still an awful tragedy!! This was being reported at about 1600 hrs. our time...

Maybe you are the one jumping to a conclusion here, M. Why must you assume it is an Islamic thing? Right away you are saying, wait, wait, it may be Muslims.

No, my friend, it was a white guy at the wheel and unfortunately it ended in tragedy. Good thing your finger isn't on the button or we'd be in a nuclear wasteland by now.

No, M, you close your eyes to the evils of the GOP. Wake up! There are bad guys there also, but the neo-cons (I hate that term) twist and turn the facts when their own are involved.

Come on M, be fair. Let's hear (read) your take on Foley. At least Clinton wasn't with a minor.

It is a sad day when we as P.O.'s have to ticket are fellow officers.This just shows us how F#$*ed up this department has become. When I started 25 years ago this officer never would have been allowed to pull this S#@t with out his peers putting a stop to it. But again this officer stopped the P.O. because he/she didn't have the balls to stop the car full of bangers. I can't wait for the next four years to pass and get the hell out.

Neither was Foley. That's why there isn't a criminal investigation.

At least Foley resigned as soon as it became apparent that he had acted improperly. Do you really want us to start listing Democratic improprieties with Congressional pages, both male and female and the number of times they ended up re-elected to Congress? We don't think you do.

And how about this blockbuster from the Washington Post?

But there are indications that Democrats spent months circulating five less insidious Foley e-mails to news organizations before they were finally published by ABC News late last month, which prompted the leaking of the more salacious instant messages. Harper's Magazine said yesterday that it obtained the five e-mails from a Democratic Party operative, albeit in May, long before the election season.

Gee, we guess the democrats weren't that concerned about Foley's exploitation of minor children if they managed to sit on it for 5 months in order to spring it as their own version of an "October Surprise," eh?

Foley didn't have sex with anyone and lie under oath. Foley didn't assign his gay lover to be the number 3 top spot in New Jersey government. Foley wasn't having a long term relationship with a bi-sexual prostitute. He is a closeted gay (a la Guitierrez) and sent innapropriate messages to pages. Then he quit. End of story. He was wrong. Now he's gone. The only story here is how you're grasping at a non-issue lefty.

Tsk, tsk, tsk, M, I am surprised you feel that way. It does not matter the Democrats waited (that is wrong, mind you) but that Foley was talking dirty with a minor.

Incidentially, M, Foley was communicating with a minor. You remember law class from the Academy don't you? A minor is someone under 21. Most states 16 YOA is a juvenile, like Illinois.

Why do you not lash out at the actions of Foley? So, I take it you would be in favor of your son or daughter, (if you are that old) receiving some messages from a grown man. What about your little sister od brother? I didn't think so.

Your replies are typical of the conservative classes. Turn around something bad on our side and say look what they did, bah, bah, bah. Please don't trot out some Democratic wrongdoing. The point are the actions, not the party.

What Foley did was morally wrong and all the Republicans who fail to say so are wrong too. I am a bit surprised (and saddened) at you, dear M., and am sincere when that I write. I thought you were better and would have condemned Foley.

Wrong is wrong, no matter what the political philosophy.

Blogger SCC said...

Communicating with a minor is illegal now? We must have missed that law class. Why isn't there a criminal investigation then Sherlock Holmes? Because - DUH! - there was no crime? Maybe?

What Foley did was wrong and improper - there - are you glad we said it? Did it rise to the level of criminal conduct? Apparently not. Foley resigned regardless as well he should have. But the left playing political football with a story THAT THEY KNEW ABOUT 5 MONTHS AGO would seem closer to crass political opportunism, wouldn't it? And then the democrats threatening to out all the gay republicans they can find on Capitol Hill? I thought you people were supposed to be the tolerant ones who didn't judge people by their lifestyle choices - oh, unless they happen to be gay republican's we guess?

To the copper in 016 who wrote another chicago cop a ticket:

You go to an accident and one driver is a Chicago Police officer and the other driver is JUST a wife of a Cook County Officer What do you do?? This guy decide it is best to write the Chicago cop. Explain to us why you would write a ticket. Yes the accident was his fault and he didn't deny it. Hence that is way it is an accident. Then you tell him that "the yellow copy is the same as your drivers license" No shit! The worst part is this: It was the coppers b-day. We give shitheads breaks all of the time but yet we can't give one of our own a break! Be careful very very careful out there-YOU MORON!

If that is not possible, we need the copper who was written to immediatley put something out. I have been called names, etc., but I have never written a copper. I don't write fireman, as a matter of fact, I don't write city workers. I actually have the spine to write shitheads, something I am sure this coward would never do. And guess what, I am a female policeman, yes, that is what my real star said, policeman. POST IT SCC, LET HIM TAKE HIS MEDICINE. YOU ARE WITH US OR AGAINST US!

Why would we admit something that didn't happen the way you say it did? Where did we "fuck up?"

We said the Feebs and the National Security people shouldn't rule out anything simply based on their say so. You know, like without some sort of investigation? As the information became public, we UPDATED the site. You know, like real journalists might?

The picture was what was available at the time - big freaking deal. It draws traffic.

Now we're going to play "What did Hastert know and when did he know it?" Better look in the mirror. Read the Washington post article - dems know about it long before Hastert did and sat on it until a politically opportune time. And it's looking more and more like your side overplayed it and is losing traction.

And now you leftists are claiming if it happened in the past, we should all just forget about it and "move on?" Like the non existant TexANG story? The alleged drinking and coke use? Just about every other imagined and trumped up story you people drag out every single election in a feeble attempt to cover for the fact that your party is bereft of ideas and morally bankrupt?

Funny how you always want to play by one set of rules until they get used against you, then you run around crying that the rules are unfair and ought to be changed. Go play in traffic moonbat.

Yeah, like that little rule that you don't hit on children. Like the rule that you don't take advantage of those you are in a position of power over. Like the rule where you don't get drunk and go over to the little boys dormitory to see if you can get a little "sumpim-sumpim". Or the rule that if you let the bad guy keeping doing bad things even though you can stop him, you lose your job? (oh, wait, that's one of OUR rules, Congressmen just take contributions from the guy and let him walk away....sorry).

"The alleged drinking and coke use? "

No, that would be "drinking RUM and coke" a little bit too much, Mr. President.

Kranz and Pennie...assuming you weren't parked, watching the accident, and caught on tape doing so, you screwed up. If you didn't see it, you don't have to write it. Want to do the right thing? Make the copper's car unit 1. That's it. You both should know better and share equal blame. And as for the "tell the dmv you lost it" and "use the yellow copy as your dl" way to add insult to injury. There's 2 sides to every story, but justifying any of this would be a stretch.

Since when do you write tickets on crashes you didn't witness? They both had DL's and Insurance! It’s only a 99A. Your not even required by department policy to issue tickets on 99A's if you didn't witness it. If both parties are civil and all their paper work is in order, I give the choice to unit #2 if tickets are written. I explain to them that they must appear in court to testify and any fines imposed doesn't even go to them or help fix the car, its money for the city! Most people are just worried about getting their car fixed and that’s a civil matter. Any 1 year p.o. would know that. The judges announce it at the beginning of traffic court everyday. So this copper is either a scared little girl that’s afraid to make any kind of decision because he doesn’t want to get jammed up, or questioned about how he handled the accident or just has no clue how to be the police. He needs to be retrained or fired. Either way he is an idiot and should be closely watched by bosses.

When the GOP couldn't find any mud to sling with whitewater or challenge him on the issues,they attacked him personally. If the worst thing someone could say about a person is that they lied about a extramarital affair instead of lying about a rason to go to war I think I know who history will judge more harshly.

When I told her to back her drunken ass up, she went over and consoled her aldutering boyfriend. He just sat there and sobbed and said "Why is everyone picking on me".
