NYPD Thwarts Terrorist Within Hour of Building Bomb

HT: New York Daily News

The big news today is the NYPD thwarting a lone-wolf jihadist in the process of building a pipe bomb at his Washington Heights apartment, which according to what he told police would have been done within one hour if they didn't stop him this afternoon.

Jose Pimentel, who is an U.S. citizen born in the Dominican Republic, wanted to attack soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan, various government buildings, including a police station, and apparently test his bombs in mail boxes through the city. He was motivated by Anwar al-Awlaki, the al-Qaida traitor we neutralized last month in Yemen.

I don't think it needs to be said, but the NYPD deserves major credit for stopping this, and other plots, in this post-9/11 world we live in. And I also hope this wakes people up to the fact that, yes, we're still at war - and will be for a very long, because the evil that drives our enemies will not die until they do...

What say you?
