Eric Holder Is Irresponsible & Dangerous – Eric Holder Must Step Down
US Attorney General Eric Holder knew about Faisal Shahzad’s extremist background and resume. Holder knew about Faisal’s links to the Pakistani Taliban but refused to admit that Islamic radicals were behind the Times Square bomb plot yesterday during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee.
This is irresponsible and puts American lives at risk. Eric Holder is incapable of understanding the threats facing this nation. Eric Holder must step down.
Times Square car terrorist Faisal Shahzad worked with an accomplice in Pakistan who provided an “independent stream” of evidence that the Pakistani Taliban were behind the botched plot. This information was provided after the accomplice’s arrest in Pakistan last week.
US Attorney General Eric Holder acknowledged that the Times Square bomber was linked to the Taliban. Despite this information, the US Attorney General refused to use the term “radical Islam” when discussing the motives behind the Times Square bomber yesterday during a House Judiciary Committee hearing.
The US Attorney General has information that the Taliban was behind the Times Square attack. Terrorist Faisal Shahzad had substantial connections to the Taliban, reached out to the Taliban, was influenced byYemeni terror leader Anwar al Awlaki, made at least a dozen return trips to Pakistan since arriving in the United States in 1999, and he bought a one way ticketwith cash to Pakistan. Terrorist Faisal Shahzad was blogging on terror websites about jihad since 2006.
Despite all of this information, Attorney General Eric Holder will not admit to the American public that Faisal Shahzad was a radical Islamist. This is not only irresponsible, it is dangerous.
Eric Holder should resign.
Here’s more information on Faisal Shahzad’s Pakistani connection from The Hindu:
A man believed to be an accomplice of Times Square bombing suspect Faisal Shahzad has been arrested in Pakistan and has provided an “independent stream” of evidence that the Pakistani Taliban were behind the botched plot.
Citing unnamed U.S. officials, The Washington Post reported on Friday that the arrest of the alleged accomplice of Shahzad in Pakistan had not been previously disclosed.
He provided an “independent stream” of evidence that the Pakistani Taliban were behind the attempt and has admitted to helping Pakistani-American Shahzad travel to the tribal belt bordering Afghanistan for bomb training, the report said.
“What they (Shahzad and the suspect arrested in Pakistan) said has been corroborated by other evidence,” a senior law enforcement source was quoted as saying by the paper.
The suspect in Pakistani custody “is believed to have a connection to the TTP (Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan),” a U.S. intelligence official said.
U.S. officials cited by the paper declined to identify the suspect in Pakistan, but said American investigators have had direct access to him, and described him as a facilitator for the Pakistani Taliban…
…U.S. Attorney General Eric H Holder has said there was evidence that the Pakistani Taliban was behind the May 1 plotin which Shahzad allegedly tried to blow up a Nissan Pathfinder packed with explosives in the crowded Times Square, one of the world’s most popular tourist attractions.
How many Americans will have to die before Eric Holder understands the nature of our enemy?
Eric Holder must resign.
