Liberals have been trying to say the NY bomber was a lone wolf. Just a disaffected young man. Nothing more.
They downplayed the effect of the bombings, saying “We are chill. Many are eating gelato. Having a glass of wine. It’s not total chaos.”
Now, the FBI has brought charges against bomber Ahmed Rahami and released more information.
It could have been much worse.
In Rahami’s journal, he talked about jihad. He talked about his admiration for Osama Bin Laden. He said that “Inshallah, the sounds of the bombs will be heard in the streets.”
Here’s a video report from the Today Show:
Some new details are in the FBI charges. According to the Today Show:
The FBI says Rahami began ordering materials to build bombs in June, buying some items on Ebay under his own name. The day of the bombings, Rahami drove himself into Manhattan through the Lincoln Tunnel. The IEDs injured approximately 31 people in New York. One victim had to have multiple ball bearings removed from her body.
A complaint filed in US District Court in Manhattan contains details from Rahami’s handwritten journal, damaged from a shootout with police, and more evidence from the investigation.
The complaint charges Rahami with use of weapons of mass destruction, bombing a public place, destruction of property and use of a destructive device.
This was not a lone wolf attack. Or just a disaffected young man. It was much more than that.
