In the Belly of the Beast: OK, I'll give them credit for not jumping to conclusions
Posted by Jill | 5:12 AM
A quick look at Fox News' web site, Michellemalkin.com, and Hot Air shows that even most of the Usual Suspects are not jumping on the Jihadi Did This bandwagon in regard to the Times Square bombing. Kudos to all (unlike CNN yesterday) for waiting for more information, and especially in the case of Allahpundit at Hot Air, looking at ALL possibilities and noting that the bomb looks far too much to have been created by a nimrod to have been the work of Islamic terrorists. After all, THEIR bombs usually work and their attacks succeed. The commenters, on the other hand, are the usual pack of Obama-haters and pants-pissers, most of whom probably live in Kansas and are simply jealous that Al Qaeda just isn't that into them.

Meanwhile, the hysteria continues apace elsewhere, like Pittsburgh, where a microwave oven by the side of the road delayed the city's marathon.

For all that a Pakistan Taliban group has claimed credit for Saturday's car bomb, there is skepticism:
No motive had been determined in the attempted bombing, and federal and local officials said there was no evidence to support a claim of responsibility issued Sunday by a Pakistani Taliban group that has a reputation for making far-fetched attempts to take credit for attacks.

I'm no expert, but to me this smacks of lone wolf. Whether it's a lone wolf still upset about the South Park episode that never ran showing the prophet Muhammad in a bear suit, or a lone wolf still unable to accept the results of the 2008 election, or something else entirely, remains to be seen. But for once, even those who usually profit off of whipping people into a frenzy of fear seem to have decided to behave responsibly.

Allah is the cautious sort compared to most of his brethren, which is one reason I like him. He's also a devout atheist, which renders him immune to most christ-con nonsense. Ms. Malkin is another story.

maybe he was just a pissed off nut.
