"Yes, we WILL!"

Left wing bloggers want to know, “Will the Right Wing attack General Petraeus for saying the Times Square Bomber is a Lone Wolf?”

Maybe we need to revisit this ad?

Think Progress Gen. David Petraeus says the Times Square bombing suspect is a “lone wolf” terrorist who did not work with others. The general who oversees the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan tells The Associated Press that alleged bomber Faisal Shahzad was inspired by militants in Pakistan, but didn’t have direct contact with them.


The Washington Post reports today that “U.S. officials” said Shahzad’s “radicalization was cumulative and largely self-contained — meaning that it did not involve typical catalysts such as direct contact with a radical cleric, a visible conversion to militant Islam or a significant setback in life.”

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH): “The Obama administration has spoon-fed the American people with bland reassurances that this was just one off, or that this was just a lone wolf. This is the rhetoric of an administration that continues to operate without a real comprehensive plan to confront the terrorist threat.”

RNC Chair Micheal Steele: “Clearly there’s something missing…I think there’s a lot of rush to judgment in concluding that he acted alone so we can sweep that aside and not have it reach out as tentacles often do and touch a whole lot of other actors around the globe, particularly those who are apart of the global jihad.” [MSNBC, 5/7/10]

Charles Krauthammer: “The administration always instinctively wants to pretend, at least at the beginning, that it’s a one-off the thing…They don’t want to talk about the overall structure, which is that it’s part of jihad. They’re all connected in the sense that they are adherents to a jihadist movement with a lot of tentacles and that is what is behind them.”

So, as Gen. Petraeus wants us to believe, if Faisal Shahzad acted alone, how do you explain Eric Holder’s comments on ABC News today? Holder: “Pakistani Taliban Behind Times Square Attack.”

Could it be that the Obama Regime is purposely trying to make Petraeus look like a fool?
