• Florida Man Arrested in FBI/ISIS-Inspired Plot to Bomb a Beach

    So you be the judge: which organization, the FBI or ISIS, had more to do with this supposed “threat” to Das Homeland?

    The FBI has arrested a man who allegedly wanted to detonate a bomb in what authorities describe as an ISIS-inspired terror attack, officials said.

    Harlem Suarez, 23, of Key West, Florida, (pictured, and do note the Batman T-shirt) has been charged with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction in the United States.

    So Terrorist Suarez first came onto the FBI’s radar in April, after he posted whatever “extremist rhetoric” and pro-ISIS messages are on Facebook, according to the Justice Department. Facebook, yep, everything people post on Facebook is serious sh*t, man, no boasting or false bravado online, ever. Everybody always means exactly what they say.

    Anyway, after creeping Suarez on Facebook, the FBI then sent in an FBI-employed “confidential source” who for months allegedly talked with Suarez online and in person about plans to attack the United States. Not that any of that would have encouraged or emboldened someone whose previous plans would have otherwise never left his bedroom.

    In May, according to the FBI, Suarez recorded his own video, declaring: “We will destroy America and divide it into two. We will raise our black flag on top of your White House and any president on duty.”

    Nice touch– “any president on duty.” Man, Suarez was obviously well-informed.

    The FBI said that in subsequent meetings with the FBI informant, Suarez discussed plans for an attack around the July 4 holiday and said he would “cook American in cages” — an apparent reference to the ISIS video of a captured Jordanian pilot being burned alive while in a cage.

    Last week, Suarez allegedly gave the informant two boxes of nails, a cell phone, a backpack and $100 to build a bomb. In the most recent discussions, Suarez talked about bombing a public beach in Key West and placing explosive devices under police cars, according to charging documents filed by the FBI.

    Note that without some actual explosive material and the knowledge to build a bomb without first blowing yourself up (yeah, yeah, it’s all online, but so is a lot of stuff. Reading stuff online and actually safely handling explosives and ensuring they work remotely is a whole ‘nother story.) In case you wish to experiment, here are instructions for making a nuclear weapon.

    And seriously, a backpack bomb, is that really a weapon of mass destruction?

    Also note that at no point was anyone in America in danger in any way whatsoever.

    “There is no room for failure when it comes to investigating the potential use of a weapon of mass destruction,” said Special Agent in Charge George Piro, head of the FBI’s Miami Field Office.

      Is this moron actually taking a selfie in this picture? Wow. Smart AND good-lookin’. No wonder the FBI went to such pains to recruit him. He coulda been a real swayer of hearts and minds.

      My favorite part is this: “Last week, Suarez allegedly gave the informant two boxes of nails, a cell phone, a backpack and $100 to build a bomb.”

      Add in a roll of duct-tape and you’ve got a MacGyver episode right there.

      In case he loses the McDonald’s tray cover with his scribbled schematics for a WMD he had them tattooed on his arm. That’s thinking ahead! That makes him very very dangerous.

      (sighing..shaking head.)

      “Last week, Suarez allegedly gave the informant two boxes of nails, a cell phone, a backpack and $100 to build a bomb.”

      wait…wait.. This doesn’t make sense. SUAREZ gave a FBI informant this stuff? Usually..it’s the other way around.

      So, let me get this straight. Someone wants to blow shit up, but gives some stuff to build a bomb to an acquaintance?? ummm.. this gives new meaning to the word moron.

      Geezus..another contender for the Worlds Dumbest Criminals. God I’d give $100 just to see the look on this schmucks face when the FBI arrested him. Like…”WTF was I thinking” (insert rolling eyes here)

      whoa!! This just in..breaking news!!!!!!!!!!!!

      quote”Everything you need to know about how the State Department classifies information”unquote

      Insert rolling eyes here…


      quote”On Friday, a Reuters investigation found that at least 30 e-mail threads on her server in 2009 contained information the government “automatically deems classified from the get-go.”unquote

      ok…now…wait for it…….

      quote”Countering that narrative, a former Justice Department spokesman wrote in Politico Magazine that the government is often overzealous in classifying information and that intelligence officials make “extreme” and “absurd” determinations about what should be classified.

      DOJ finally “admits”..intelligence officials make extreme and ABSURD classification determinations!!!!!!!!



      ummm,… I feel a Patreaus moment coming on…
      and so does Hillary…

      ya know, I don’t know how these DOJ schmucks look in the mirror. But I do know this. These assholes are going to prove without a shadow of doubt now..that the TwoTeiredIn-Justice system in the US is alive and FUCKING WELL!!!
      I mean..after the Wallstreet banker bullshit, and the Patreaus bullshit, and the Aaron Swartz bullshit, and the PVB bullshit, and the Kiriakou bullshit, and the Manning bullshit..if this country doesn’t surround these motherfuckers in the DOJ, ready to drag their asses out of that granite palace and hang em from lamp posts…I don’t know what will.

      State doesn’t want scrutiny of Hillary for it reflects poorly on the organization. That is understandable but of course unacceptable.

      I get a vague feeling that some staunch Democratic voters resent that the party machine seems to have already decided who the nominee must be and that we should just accept their wisdom and expertise and go along or move on. None of us wants to be taken for a fool or sucker and told to just accept it and move on. The “Ready for Hillary” campaign may implode. I’m certainly hoping it does.

      Less chatter, more guillotines.

      Guillotines would be too kind.

      We need an American Simon Wiesenthal who will hunt down American War criminals like Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, Condi, and literally hundreds. more. We’d need four Pinochle decks to accomodate them all. Powell would only rank a nine of clubs since he was “clueless”.

      goddammit teri.. fuck. And here I thought I was the only one advocating for extreme analogy. Given time, I’m not so sure it’s just an analogy.

      The International Court of Human Rights wouldn’t give a fuck. If only they had jurisdiction over a Legal Imperialism.

      Careful what you wish for…

      It didn’t turn out to well for the folks who rolled out the guillotines in France. They ended up with their heads in the basket, too.

      Hell, these guys aren’t hiding, so there’s no need for a Nazi hunter. They are loud and proud and cashing in on their activities. Bush gives folksy talks to anyone stupid enough to sit still long enough, Cheney still shows up for TV interviews, Condaleeza is asked for policy advice, Rumsfeld writes books and runs a website and foundation and is probably right now on vacation at his Eastern Shore property, Mount Misery Plantation. Mount Misery is where Frederick Douglass was sent as a young slave to be “broken”. (I will spare you my thoughts on Misery now being owned by our latter-day torturer in chief rather than being held as an historic and unoccupied site in honor of Douglass.) General Ray Odierno, known as the Iraq War General due to his unflagging efforts to kill as many Iraqis as possible during the illegal invasion and decimation of that country, just retired a week ago and is moving on to another sector of the military/industrial/financial complex. He has taken a job as a senior adviser to JPMorgan Chase.  This lifelong commitment and dedication to death is also why John Ashcroft and retired Adm. Bobby Inman joined Academi (aka Xe/Blackwater). I could go on, but you get the point: none of these people are hiding, they are making book on their former careers right out there in public and moving along in lucrative second or third careers.

      Because, you know, it takes more than just one career to maximize the kill ratio.  

      Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld will never leave us, in one sense. They each had a species of slime-mold beetles named after them. This was done as an homage to them, not as an ironic rebuke, by some misguided Cornell entomologists. Believe it or not.

      In the We Don’t Even Try to Hide Our Duplicity Department:

      In an effort to show that he was just joshing about the whole Iran diplomacy outreach thingie, Obama wrote a letter addressed to Democratic lawmakers stressing that sanctions will remain in force against Iran for their support of Hezbollah, which remains listed as a terrorist organization by the US State Dept. until, like al Qaeda, it becomes an ally in the War on Life on Earth. [Tune in next Tuesday for updates on this.]

      “Yeah,” he wrote, “all that ‘ending sanctions’ talk, well, you know, I didn’t really mean it.  I never mean what I say, in case you haven’t noticed.  Shh, don’t tell Iran.  Mum’s the word.”  He also stressed his love and subservience to Israel and threatened war with Iran should it be demanded of him by Israel as a test of this largely unrequited love.  The letter was later published in the NYTimes, but it is a known fact that President Rouhani of Iran almost never reads the Times.

      By “hunting down” I meant of course somehow getting them to the Hague but that process is already defunct. Dante’s Satan would be overwhelmed with new arrivals if there was cosmic justice. They’d have to start taking numbers at the entrance to the first circle. Guys like Rumsfeld and Wolfowitz are booked in every circle including a few that haven’t been yet specified.
