    Yeah, I'm glad it didn't explode. Imagine getting bombed at Times Square when it's not New Year's Eve.

    "A top Pakistani Taliban commander took credit for yesterday's failed car bomb attack in New York City.

    Qari Hussain Mehsud, the top bomb maker for the Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan, said he takes "fully responsibility for the recent attack in the USA." Qari Hussain made the claim on an audiotape accompanied by images that was released on a YouTube website that calls itself the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan News Channel. "

    Who knows who tried this. Thankfully, it did seem a bit more "amateur" than some other attempts.

    But, Islamo-terrorists, if nothing else, are persistent.

    I hope whoever did this has an "accident" while "practicing" (in a remote, deserted parking lot for) his next assignment.

    Surprisingly, no one has (yet) blamed the Tea Party for this incident. :laugh:

    Sounds more like a high school lab experiment. We made better bombs in chemistry class.

    Or (in the interests of balance) eco-terrorists.

    Seriously, thanks be to God for deliverance from what was clearly meant to be another atrocity.

    It doesn't take high tech. Remember, the weapons used in the 9/11 attacks were box cutters.

    It appears that at least one of the perpetrators has been caught.

    And - SURPRISE! He's from a Muslim country.

    Keep in mind...the media kept telling us it was a "white man" we were looking for.

    And several have stressed this was an "American citizen."

    Well, truth time: Citizen? Barely.

    And....as expected....this potential disaster came from one claiming Islam as his justification.


    I say, let's put him in an abandoned parking lot, with some extra cars, tanks of fuel, a pound or two of bacon (just to increase the irony), and let him "practice."
