Aw: Jihadi Shahzad Doesn't Like Drone Attacks

It's a shame he didn't get clipped in one of them. After discovering maniacal jihadi Faisal Shahzad suffered from Bush Derangement Syndrome, we now also find out he had his panties in a knot over drone attacks on Pakistan terror bases.

The poor thing.
It was payback.

The Connecticut man charged yesterday with the botched Times Square car bombing confessed to trying to slaughter innocent people in retaliation for US drone attacks that wiped out the leadership of his beloved Taliban, The Post has learned.

Admitted terrorist Faisal Shahzad -- who copped to training in explosives in the past year with Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, the leading extremist Islamic group in his native Pakistan -- said he was driven to evil by the slew of deaths among leaders of the terror group, law-enforcement sources revealed yesterday.

His training came in a tribal area where American drone aircraft have pummeled members of the Pakistan Taliban and al Qaeda in the past year.

Sources said he was an eyewitness to the onslaught throughout the eight months he spent in Pakistan beginning last summer.

The Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility for the Times Square bombing attempt immediately after it occurred, saying it was in response to the drone killing of one of its leaders in August -- but that claim had been roundly discounted by US authorities at the time.

But by yesterday, Pakistani Foreign Minister Makhdoom Qureshi said, "This is a blowback. This is a reaction. This is retaliation. And you could expect that," according to CBS News.
If Bush were still president, no doubt the left would be eagerly pointing their finger his way and blaming him for "creating" this terrorist, as the mantra went for many years.

I guess the handwringing over this poor terrorist being a victim of a bad economy will need to be revised today. For awhile there yesterday I thought the media wanted to do a group hug with the guy because he was being foreclosed on.

Will Obama's media lackeys now blame him for turning Shahzad into a terrorist?

Thanks to Hot Air for the link.
