1. The foreclosed homeowner:
CNN did some honest to goodness
journalism and discovered that—wait for it—suspected bomber Faisal
Shahzad is a deadbeat that failed to make payments on his mortgage.
This, says the blow-dried bozo in Atlanta, likely “brought alot of
pressure and alot of heartache” and could have motivated him to
take his revenge on the Bubba Gump
In nearly a dozen years in this country, Mr. Shahzad had gone to school, held steady jobs, bought and sold real estate, and kept his immigration status in good order, giving no sign to those he interacted with that he had connections to terrorists in Pakistan.
But he had those, too.
3.The frustrated Contessa Brewer:
I mean the thing is that- and I get frustrated and there was part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country because there are a lot of people who want to use this terrorist intent to justify writing off people who believe in a certain way or come from certain countries or whose skin color is a certain way.
4. The guy who was changing his shirt because he was hot and who didn’t like the healthcare bill:
“He may or may not have been involved in this incident. It was a hot day, maybe he was just changing his shirt,” said Bloomberg.
Maybe Scrappleface could come to the rescue on that one.
4. The guy whose life had unraveled:
Not long ago, Faisal Shahzad had a pretty enviable life: He became an American citizen after emigrating from Pakistan, where he came from a wealthy family. He earned an MBA. He had a well-educated wife and two kids and owned a house in a middle-class Connecticut suburb.
In the past couple of years, though, his life seemed to unravel: He left a job at a global marketing firm he’d held for three years, lost his home to foreclosure and moved into an apartment in an impoverished neighborhood in Bridgeport.
Tell you what: you leave your job at “at a global marketing firm” to join the jihadists and the odds are pretty high that your life will “unravel”.
