NO!!! It was a COMPLETED BOMBING.
He MADE THE BOMB.
He PLACED IT AT HIS CHOSEN TARGET.
He SET IT OFF.
He GOT AWAY UNSOUGHT.
The criminal did EVERYTHING HE WANTED TO DO.
If he had bought his ticket a month earlier for the date of the bombing, or paid with a credit card, he'd have been in Dubai.
This bombing was a complete success. NO ACTION OF THE BOMBER WAS PREVENTED.
Sure, if the bomb had been constructed differently, lots of people would have died. This is not a stupid criminal. This is an educated, competent man, he could easily have made a better bomb. He could have easily escaped.
We ASSUME he meant it to go off. Why isn't it just practice?
Hint- today's lessons:
"Wah, Sharif! The Infidels are so eager to show their fear of the True Faith, and to turn our Jihad to domestic political advantage, that they hunt an innocent man, one of their own!
"And their Zionist pig Mayor accuses his own political enemies, without any evidence at all! They are so ripe for civil war, they will do anything to blame their own people, the ones who are our enemies, for doing what we actually do!
And when our Shaheed Brother brings himself to their notice, they apologise to US.
But we have "learned" some things. When we plant the real bombs, make the escape arrangements early, and use credit cards.
Don't buy cars that have been in dealer inventory recently. Use fake names when buying them. Get tinted windows, and put an old blanket over the bomb. Stupid brown people that we are, we could never figure those out!
And plant the real bomb where there will be lots of white infidels around, and security cameras.
Contessa Brewer will wet herself when we shoot up the Harlem schoolyard wearing Klan robes!
Allah is great!"
