AINO Sunshine ’til He’s Gone: “Paging Dick Cheney–Waterboard cleanup needed in Aisle Four!”


“Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”– Roman poet Publius Ovidius Naso, a.k.a. “Ovid”–all units be on the lookout!



…Shahzad told investigators he acted alone and denied any ties to radical groups in his native Pakistan…

I certainly hoped they stopped him from talking. It would be just terrible if we ‘arrogantly failed to live up to Americas highest ideals’ by letting him tell us anything useful.

Shahzad is a naturalized U.S. citizen and had recently returned from a five-month trip to Pakistan, where he had a wife…

But Holder said Americans should remain vigilant.

“It’s clear,” he said, “that the intent behind this terrorist act was to kill Americans.”

Umm…he is an American. Or at least an AINO–American in Name Only. Should he “remain vigilant”, too, Eric?

Out of all the millions of people who would give their right arm for American citizenship, who would come here and be good productive citizens, or as productive as they could be with one arm, our Feddle Gumment chooses to confer citizenship on one Faisal Shahzad of Pakistan, a guy who can’t load batteries in a flashlight without detailed step-by-step instructions in Farsi.

Still, we’re lucky he was caught at all, given the mindset of officialdom, such as expressed by le Chief Inspector Jacques Bloomberg. The Fool Monty:

“If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn’t like the health care bill or something. It could be anything. There is no evidence here of a conspiracy, there is no evidence that it’s tied into anything else. It looks like an amateurish job done by at least one person.”


To the traditional who-ya-gonna-believe-me-or-your-lyin’-eyes cliches, Mayor Bloomberg has now added the inspired line that the amateurish loner with no connection to terrorism “didn’t like the health care bill”. I do hope they ask Faisal Shahzad his views on the individual mandate.

And Arizona’s immigration policy. Or maybe he was just another frustrated, Bush-hating theater critic, angry that Disney’s “The Lion King” failed to address the Imperial Over-Reach of the BushJunta’s Islamophobia, Homophobia, Hobophobia and Phobophobia. You know–like Frank Rich.

Will Holder also insist on Shahzad’s Iron-Clad Right to a trial on Broadway? Thinkin’ of it just gives me the buh-lues.

Hot Air:

Does anyone else see the hand of the NSA in this?

The number from a disposable cellphone led FBI agents to the suspect arrested Monday night for allegedly driving a car bomb into Times Square on Saturday evening, according to a senior official.

“They were able to basically get one phone number and by running it through a number of databases, figure out who they thought the guy was,” the official said.

You mean to tell me that we eavesdropped on this patriotic American? And he wasn’t even a Tea Party terrorist!

Congratulations to Law Enforcement on a job well done–nothing in this post should be construed otherwise. In fact, accept these apologies on behalf of American voters for inflicting such a dim-witted, half-hearted hack political class upon you. Thanks for doing the best job possible under such circumstances. Americans appreciate it.

And that AINO joke.

UPDATE: Where did Shazad work?

NY Post: Shahzad, a naturalized US citizen, had not been seen at his home or at his job since the Times Square incident.
LA Times: She said Shahzad told her husband he had a job on Wall Street, but that the Shahzad family left the home a few months ago after it fell into foreclosure.
BBC: She said she thought he had worked in nearby Norwalk.
Toolbox: a different Mr. Shazad, software developer?
Wall Street Journal: He next appears in April, 2002, when he was granted an H1-B visa for skilled workers; he stayed in the U.S. for three years on that visa and gained an M.B.A. It is not clear what company sponsored the visa, which is used to attract workers with a “specialty occupation,” such as information technology.

Another question:

Is Shazad an American citizen entitled to Constitutional rights if he falsely swore

“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”?

  1. He’s an American citizen and is therefore legally required to be given due process rights and everything that goes with it.

    Even Glenn Beck agrees with me.

  2. “everything that goes with it” includes a firing squad at our earliest convenience. That’s the process “due” to our Traitor-American Community’s finest.

  3. Yep, he’s a citizen and was caught on US soil. So he gets Mirandized, lawyers up and (I would assume) gets charged with treason along with the “trying to blow shit up” charges.

    THEN, after he’s convicted, we hang his ass.

    Procedure, people.

  4. I agree with the person above. What is fair is fair and what is law is law. There shouldn’t be any special treatment.

  5. All criminals need to be treated equally, that’s why our country is so awesome. Equal rights for all. But yeah, he needs to be shot.

  6. I believer that any citizen who carries out or attempts to bring harm and destruction to his “country” breaks the spoken contract he has with that government and abdicates his rights as a citizen. Why should a country protect a “citizen” who clearly has no affection or patriotism for the place of his “citizenship”?

  7. Is he ever a US citizen?

    If he take an oath under false pretense, that void his citizenship. That would make him not a traitor but a spy and a infiltrators – we do have every right to summuarily hang these sort of people.
