November 21, 2011 - San Francisco CA - PipeLineNews.org - As a result of a year-long investigation conducted by NYPD detectives, Muslim convert Muhammad Yusuf, formerly Jose Pimentel a naturalized American citizen, was busted last weekend on terror charges. On Sunday he was arraigned on a four count indictment [source, Yusuf criminal complaint, http://www.scribd.com/doc/73309463/Jose-Pimentel-criminal-complaint].
Criminal possession of a weapon in the first degree as a crime of terrorism
Soliciting or providing support for an act of terrorism in the second degree
Criminal possession of a weapon in the third degree
Conspiracy in the fourth degree
Upon his arrest Yusuf, using al-Qaeda bomb making plans, was in the final stages of constructing explosive devices, complete with timers to carry out acts of war against government institutions, police buildings and banks.
The details of Yusuf's arrest provide a chilling insight into Team Obama's national security malfeasance; unbelievably Eric Holder's FBI declined to become involved with the investigation.
"Federal authorities declined to pursue a case against an "al Qaeda sympathizer" accused of plotting to bomb police stations and post offices in the New York area because they believed he was mentally unstable and incapable of pulling it off, two law enforcement officials said Monday." [source, NY Post, Kelly calls alleged bomb plotter 'imminent threat', http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/fbi_declined_to_pursue_nyc_bomb_Zp3LBzS5QwX1ohSTqoB8iL]
Yes, you did read that correctly, the Attorney General of the United States, Eric Holder refused to get involved with the investigation, claiming that the defendant was too unstable despite the fact that when Yusuf was arrested he was in possession of bomb making components and was in the process of assembling them.
Yusuf's motivation for his planned jihad was undeniable - Islamic ideology - his website [trueislam1.com] has a section [http://www.trueislam1.com/2011/04/verses-in-quran-that-command-us-to.html] that lists over 30 tracts from the Qur'an and other seminal Islamic texts which "command" Muslims to wage jihad. Additionally Yusuf's website has an outgoing link which contains a 9 page al-Qaeda bomb making manual, complete with a parts list and accompanying images to aid in their construction.
The bottom line on this is that under Team Obama, national security isn't that high a priority - unless it happens to aid in the president's reelection in 2012. In our opinion Mr. Holder should resign today simply because of his DOJ's malfeasance in the events which led to the arrest of Mr. Yusuf.
The actions undertaken by the NYPD in this matter are to be commended. This program relies heavily on surveillance and the development of confidential leads, all acts which had been assailed by the likes of Hamas mouthpiece CAIR and a host of associated Muslim Brotherhood organizations.
Typical of CAIR's dissembling on this matter, an October 11 press release claims, "CAIR-NY Civil Rights Manager Cyrus McGoldrick's testimony will focus on reports that the NYPD, with help from the CIA, conducted widespread monitoring and surveillance of the Muslim communities in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut without evidence of wrongdoing on the part of those monitored..." [see, http://www.bizjournals.com/prnewswire/press_releases/2011/10/06/DC82071]
It seems that Holder's DOJ, CAIR and Mr. Obama are pretty much all on the same page here, a truly frightening development.
