Life imitates Peanuts

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – Undercover agents in a sting operation stopped a Somali-born teenager from blowing up a van full of explosives at a crowded Christmas tree lighting ceremony in downtown Portland, federal authorities said.

The bomb was a dud supplied by the agents and the public was never in danger, authorities said.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, was arrested at 5:40 p.m. Friday just after he dialed a cell phone that he thought would set off the blast but instead brought federal agents and police swooping down on him.

Yelling “Allahu Akbar!” – Arabic for “God is great!” – Mohamud tried to kick agents and police after he was taken into custody, according to prosecutors.

It’s jihad, Charlie Brown.

  1. Amazing!
    Not that the jihadis want to kill us, but that this same method has worked on so many jihadi wannabes.
    This guy should have kept up on current events in the world of splodeydopes, as we just had one just like him(only a Phakestinian) get sentenced in Dallas a few months ago.
    The FBI used the exact same approach.
    Such is life in Dar al-Harb.

  4. Good thing he wasn’t trying to get on an airplane! He probably would have been ignored there in favor of harassing a geriatric amputee.

    Hasn’t the FBI gotten word yet that the “real” enemies are people that believe in the Constitution?
