Oh gee -- he was "mistaken"

Delaware Douche, who yesterday commented that the Times Square would-be bomber would turn out to be domestic talk radio listening/Fox News watching Tea Party sympathizer, offers nary a word of apology -- only excuses. And he congratulates the Obama administration (surprise) while simultaneously ripping conservatives (bigger surprise):

A naturalized American citizen originally from Pakistan was arrested for the attempted Times Square car bomb last night on his getaway plane to Dubai. A victory for law enforcement and the Obama Administration. Now try him in our courts and convict him, and that will be another victory for our justice system. He is an American citizen and should be punished according to our laws. Law and order conservatives can have no problem with that, and if they do, they are hypocrites.

To quote Booman, with whom I share a mistaken first impression that the Time Square attempted carbombing was not the work of foreign terrorists:

I admit my initial skepticism that it was an attack with foreign connections was incorrect, though it seems clear that the bomber wasnt particularly well trained in the art of bomb making by the Taliban in Pakistan or by anyone else for that matter. Terrorists do hate us, but not for our freedom as idiot conservatives like to say. They often have very legitimate reasons for hating us. If they attacked us with predator drones and killed your innocent family, Id say we hate them too.

You follow that? Delaware Douche and this "Booman" are saying that foreign TERRORISTS have a legitimate gripe against us because the US sends predator drones to kill ... TERRORISTS. Because these predator drones may kill a TERRORIST'S innocent family. TERRORISTS, whose sole occupation is to kill innocent families.

But y'know what? If this suspect ended up being a guy like the one who flew a plane into that IRS building ... because, say, our own government screwed up his tax filings and hence was now making him destitute with liens and wage attachments, Delaware Douche and his co-horts wouldn't offer excuse one. There would be a flood of posts all week about the "epidemic" of rightist domestic terrorism, and how talk radio and Fox News were co-conspirators.

This is your modern "progressive," folks. Foreign enemies whose only desire is to see their religion dominate the globe, see all who oppose them killed, and see all women as subservient subjects, are less of a threat than the opposing political party and philosophy here at home.

Scary stuff.

Nationally, bigwig lefty sites also make themselves look like a-holes.

Some MSM types are "frustrated" that the terrorist looks to be Muslim:

"I get frustrated...There was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country."

"...There are a lot of people who want to use terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way. I mean they use it as justification for really outdated bigotry."

You mean ... like Tea Partiers? Conservatives? Republicans?

Of course not.

Don't you understand, Hube -- these folks are of the same ilk as those who opposed US intervention in WWII until after Hitler turned on Stalin.

And had Hitler not turned on Stalin, they would have continued to oppose US involvement in the war even after Pearl Harbor.
