Nation Crackpot: NY Terror Plot Is 'Bogus'

We noted yesterday one of the nutroots clowns claiming the New York jihadi plot was cooked up by the FBI. Today another wacko from the far left Nation is claiming the whole thing is bogus. Apparently fighting terrorism is a waste of time to these idiots. The same people would be screaming from the rooftops if we failed to stop these plots.

You just can't win with some people.
By the now, it's maddeningly familiar. A scary terrorist plot is announced. Then it's revealed that the suspects are a hapless bunch of ne'er-do-wells or run-of-the-mill thugs without the slightest connection to any terrorists at all, never mind to Al Qaeda. Finally, the last piece of the puzzle: the entire plot is revealed to have been cooked up by a scummy government agent-provocateur.

I've seen this movie before.

In this case, the alleged perps -- Onta Williams, James Cromitie, David Williams, and Laguerre Payen -- were losers, ex-cons, drug addicts. Al Qaeda they're not. Without the assistance of the agent who entrapped them, they would never have dreamed of committing political violence, nor would they have had the slightest idea about where to acquire plastic explosives or a Stinger missile.
Naturally, this kook suffers from Cheney Derangement Syndrome.
It is disgusting and outrageous that the FBI is sending provocateurs into mosques.

The headlines reinforce the very fear that Dick Cheney is trying to stir up. The story strengthens the narrative that the "homeland" is under attack. It's not. As I've written repeatedly, since 9/11 not a single American has even been punched in the nose by an angry Muslim, as far as I can tell. Plot after plot -- the destruction of the Brooklyn Bridge! bombing the New York Subways! taking down the Sears Tower! bombing the Prudential building in Newark! -- proved to be utter nonsense.
He fails to explain how a jury convicted the Sears Tower plotters. If it was nonsense, why were they convicted?
