Pardoned Terrorist In Morroco Turns To Bombing

Published by at 1:23 pm under All General Discussions,Bin Laden/GWOT

The good news in this story is Morroco avoided a suicide bomb, but that crazy part is one or two of the suspects had been pardoned of previous terrorism charges. And it took ineptitude to incover the plot, not surveillance:

Police have arrested 13 people allegedly linked to a man who blew himself up in a Casablanca Internet cafe and found bomb-making equipment on Wednesday, an Interior Ministry spokesman said.

Like the bomber, at least one of those arrested had been in prison on terrorism charges before being pardoned, ministry spokesman Abderrahman Achour told The Associated Press.

Abdelfettah Raydi died when explosives hidden on his body went off in an internet cafe in the Casablanca slum of Sidi Moumen, injuring Raydi’s accomplice, Youssef Khouidri, and three bystanders.

Goes to show you what happens when you show a terrorist any mercy.

    Dale I salute you for the LOM.

    I snuck out the backside with two PUC’s and 4 MUC’s and a couple of other salad dressing additions.

    My bad but I had to play the cards I was dealt.

    But then I had my little trip playing dirt water sailor where I got a couple of real Purple Hearts compared to Mr. JFK of the second order.

    Hey but since then I almost had one of my arms chewed to shreds by a pit bull so it all evens out if you know what I mean.

    R05: yes, you are correct; every society has taken from others, and grown as a result of it.

    I didn’t mean to imply that Islam was the only that had done that; my only intent was to disabuse, a bit, the “romatic” version of the Islamic Empire that has crept into the history books by fawning Islamist elitists, post-WWII, again many who are converts to Sunni Islam, Salafiyyah/Wahabiyyah, who’ve improved the story to a degree, that it is now apocryphal!

    I love that story about your brother and Kerry!

    And I agree about Congress, no doubt, makes me sick to my stomach!

    Merlin: crazy story about Scott! 17, and thru SEAL training; didn’t think it was possible!

    No worries about the medals; it’s mainly about timing and luck; if you got PH’s as a dirt-water sailor, I admire and respect you for them; served with a couple Navy Cmdr’s in the Arabian Gulf back in ’88 who were the same, and wearing real medals, like SS’s and PH’s, and no Kerry bullshit, either!

    Bikerken: it’s my experience, that a large number if Arabists, and Islamists, have a tendancy to “go native”, convert, or otherwise become untrustworthy!

    And frankly, I would never trust, a First Generation, or even Second Generation Arabist or Islamist; the “pull” to revert is too strong!

    We’re headed for disaster in that arena.

    It is the EXACT reson, that the CIA and the State Department are the two most Anti-American institutions in the entire US Government; they’ve “gone native”, years ago, in an effort to be “PC” and bring in language talent, they’ve lain down with the dogs, and got up with the fleas!

    I am going to have to offer some of you guest blogger status here if you want them! Maybe it is time to grow the Strata-Sphere (so I can come and read all the great posts!).

    Cheers you folks, honored to have you all hang out in this little corner of the Blogosphere.

    AJ; it was good thread, and good people hung out late!

    Guest Blogging, I’d be honored to try sometime!

    AJ, most Americans with two grey cells and a set of cajones, know that we are in for it. We also know that what needs to be done is not being done and so this war, like the Cold War, will drag out for generations.
    It seems Americans have become the new Romans, so secure in their little worlds that they can’t see the force headed their way.
    This was a great thread. No name calling, no heated exchanges, just Americans concerned about the greatest nation God put on the face of the earth.

    I am hopeful the hesitation to go full bore will end now. If the surge even begins to work we will hear ‘more of the same’. Truth is, it takes a lot to wake this gentle giant we call America. It took nearly a decade prior to WW II. And this has been a great thread to sit back and simply marvel at!

    Cheers, AJStrata
