Wrigleyville Bomb?

Wait a minute - we've got sidewalk enforcement, Operation Return to Owner, and now J-Fled answering questions over a bomb plot? Sounds like somebody is trying to polish up someone's image:
  • A 22-year-old North Side man who wanted to bring political change to the city was arrested early Sunday after placing a backpack which he thought contained explosives into a trash can on a crowded street near Wrigley Field.

    Sami Samir Hassoun, a Lebanese citizen and permanent U.S. resident, was arrested just after midnight Sunday morning without incident on North Seminary Avenue near the 3500 block of North Clark Street by members of the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to a release from the FBI.

    The arrest followed an investigation that accelerated in June, according to the release. The FBI said the public was never in danger as the explosive device was provided to Hassoun by an undercover agent.

Ah, so this is another one of those "investigations" where everyone involved was a fed except for guy actually charged. This guy seems like a nutjob:
  • In June, Hassoun, of the 4700 block of North Kedzie, began expressing to an associate the desire to commit acts of violence in the city for monetary gain and to cause political transformation, the complaint alleges. Unbeknownst to him, his associate was secretly cooperating with the FBI.

    Through the summer, Hassoun discussed a number of possible plots, including a biological attack on the city, poisoning Lake Michigan, attacking police officers, bombing the Willis Tower or assassinating Mayor Daley, the complaint alleges.

  • He saw attacking Chicago as a means of creating chaos to gain political control of the city and its sources of revenue, the release said.
Political control? From Shortshanks? Sources of revenue? Daley sold them all.

Obviously, a nutjob.

This is one of those suck-in-a-nut cases where the government absolutely insists that the poor bastard take enough rope to hang himself. The feds did everything but actually place the phony "bomb."

Daley's outta here anyway -- what's the point?

The official line is he isn't a Muslim extremist, I say BULLSHIT big time on that one.

They have to say that or they'll be an uprising and retribution by every toothless hillbilly on every hadji and burka in town.

If he gets anything less than life in the Federal Supermax Prison in Colorado, it will be a travesty.

WTF?

Wrigleyville Bomb?

Return to Owner? O_o? o_O?

HMMMM...

We detect the odor of bullshit...

Is J-fled desperately trying to fluff (ha-ha) his resume?

No sweat weis-el... We have a summation of your sorry sojourn right here...

Superintendent of Police: Chicago Police Department

2008-2011

Personally responsible for the most monumental and catastrophic upward fuckery of a major metropolitan Police department ever witnessed by humankind...

Sir Robert Peele is getting chafed from rotating in his grave.

O.W. Wilson mutters "wtf?" in his eternal slumber. (And we have it from an elder subject matter expert that ol' O.W. was not given to profanity)

This is YOUR legacy j-fled. Maybe we can import one of the great stone heads from Easter Island as a fitting reminder of your visit with us.

See you all at the meeting! It looks to be a door buster so get in early...

Same shit with Anita Alvarez. Do you notice more felony approvals lately? We keep seeing her on the news with press conferences for arrests that are routine and not newsworthy to us. What political position is she aiming for?

BTW, we hate her. Vote no.

This is in the same class as that bunch of winos in Florida that the FBI claimed were terrorists intent on blowing up Sears tower. Their only problem being all together they didn't have enough money to buy bus ticlets to Chicago. As soon as you that empty holster FBI public relations hack on TV with J-Fled, our coward boss, you just knew it is all bullshit. Fitz will frame that poor demented guy.

I think a question that the Media should ask the FBI is how much did we pay the informant who discovered this nut job. How long did they wiretap under the patrioc act this guys phones before they discovered he was a true nut job who counldnt blow his nose much less blow up a building. So what did they do supply him with a fake bomb to follow up on a threat that he otherwise could not follow up on because he is a nut job. Then call a news conference and show how fucking smart you are. What morons. Just go after guys like him and Cozzi who are like shooting fish in a barrell. People who are handed to you on a platter. Oh Yeah and call your buddy J-Fed to take part in the news conference because of course you have to protect each other but leave Joe Airhart bleeding and dying in an apartment...GOTTA RUN!!!

It's easy to dismiss Sami Hassoun as a nutjob surrounded by federal agents but the fact is that sooner or later one of these loner nutjobs is going to happen upon enablers that have the funds and expertise to further the cause (whatever that may be).

One need look no further than Faisal Shahzad in Times Square May of this year. Ineptitude was all that saved lives there. I hear he got a "D" in bomb making school and the Taliban has recalled his Certificate of Completion.

Ancient history brings us back to Timothy McVeigh, essentially a loner who hit big time with very little help.

The fact is that sooner or later one of these nutjobs is going to stumble into infamy and we all will wonder how it happened.

I think it is important to get these individuals off the street and that is only accomplished by a careful investigation where all the t's are crossed and i's dotted.

A byproduct is hopefully greater alertness on the part of business owners and citizens... at least for a short time.

Make no mistake, the clock is still ticking out there... somewhere.

Your diagnosis is correct. The guy's a nut job. Of course the FEDS are going to play up his Muslim name as though they quashed a major Al Quiada operation.

In truth, the guy who cooperated with the FBI will turn to be a family mamber or friend who realized Sami Samir Hassoun went nuts. Period.

Incredible, according to yesterday’s sun times, if convicted, the bomber faces 5 years in prison? Let see the federal charges that SHOULD be filed against him: possession of a weapon of mass destruction, attempted murder of a civilian population, domestic terrorism, being an unregistered agent of a foreign country.
These charges should be basis for either a life sentence or death.
If an American citizen was caught even thinking about this type of activity in ANY Muslim country, they’d have been summarily executed, no trial, no appeals

The real ones will not play games with the FBI and will not take a paint can full of junk from knuckleheads.

We will only see a flash and perhaps hear a boom or simply see people start dropping. And people in robes on the other side of the world will be seen dancing, laughing and clapping on Al-Jazeera.

Be careful, this is PR bullshit, nothing more.

Squanto Raids, fake terrorist bombings featuring Waleed the Wacko, what's next giving the local wino a stick up note and telling him to present it at a bank for some free money? Welcome to the J-Fled Save my Job Tour. Well, dummy, it's a waste of time. How many votes can you deliver in the mayoral election? It appears it will be close and may be decided by double digits. You are hated and despised by at least 10,000 voters. Ergo, anyone who doesn't vow to fire you loses their chance at a share of those votes. You have become expendable.

Two things that were not reported on this caper.
You figure which one is NOT true.

1) This investigation was initiated based upon info from... a "Chicago Police Officer," assigned to the Joint Terrorist Task Force.
2) Sami's intentions in placing the (inert) bomb at Wrigley Field was to kill as many people as possible during the 'World Series!'
