#1 Yall are giving this asshole way more cedit than he deserves.
1. he lost his home to the bank
2 He took out a second mortgage aparently with NO intention of ever paying it back.
(Screwed the bank right back)
3 he tried to make a bomb (Poorly) and
4 He tried to Hurt the Nation which had legaly screwed him.

This is NOT a jihadist, it's a man pushed too far and fighting back.

#2 Redneck Jim, I thought he lost the house only after he quit his reasonably well-paying job and then stopped paying the mortgage. In other words, I'm not clear how the country screwed him.

Did I miss something in the stories (quite possible ...)?

#3 Redneck Jim, could you please outline to me how to take out a second mortgage on a house that was just seized in a foreclosure?

#4 Second of all, I have been screwed lately worse than he has, and multiple times; I've never gotten to the point of owning a nice house in the suburbs to begin with. And somehow I have avoided a failed bombing attempt on Time Square or Viacom.

(Both of which sound like rather suboptimal targets to someone upset that the bank has screwed him over on his mortgage.)

This guy had the good job, he had the house, he even got the second mortgage, he got a lot more from this country than I'd get if I moved to Pakistan.

I find your arguments lacking.

#5 i am with you thing. any attempt to rationalize this POS as anything but a jihadi following an ideology of hate is off the mark.

'normal guys' dont do this.

shahzad was a silver spoon putz of the first order. if he didn't have a vagus nerve, he would be too lazy to have avoided suffocation thus far.
