Obviously, this Kevin Sites “journalist” had nothing negative to write on the war in Iraq this week since even liberals now have to admit the success of the troop surge and the massive decline in violence. It kills ’em, doesn’t it? This week, he chooses to showcase an Arab with a chip on his shoulder about the FBI investigating him after having good reason to do so.
The Arab in question is 35-year old Hasan Elahi who was investigated by the FBI after the agency was given tip about a storage shed he had rented which was believed to have been filled with explosives and emptied right after 9/11.
After being investigated, Elahi was cleared of suspicion by the FBI. Now; of course, he has a chip on his shoulder about it and has decided to videotape every single moment of his life and share it with us all on the web. So; in other words, he’s violating his own “right to privacy” now.
In being interviewed by Kevin Sites, Elahi said:
We’re in this mentality where anyone who looks a little bit different is automatically a suspect.
NO! The FBI was given a tip about a storage shed he had rented and merely followed through on it!
You know when Ann Coulter talked about the Jersey Girls and the old Democratic trick of using “victims” as spokespeople? Someone now who was appalled to be a suspect now feels compelled to share every moment of his life with us on a website? Do the words “attention whore” come to anyone else’s mind?
I’m not sure if he’s checked the statistics but 100% of attacks overseas and on our own soil were committed by Arabs. 100% of the men who committed 9/11 were Arab men. If 100% of the people killed overseas and in the World Trade Center on September 11th were all Arabs, perhaps I wouldn’t feel the same way. But all people are falling victim to this lunacy. All people are suffering because of a certain colored skin that manages to remain at 100% when it comes to calculating those involved in attacks with bombs strapped to their chest and simultaneously shouting “Allah Akbar!” If it were up to me, more of them would be investigated while standing in line at airports but they are not.
While I completely agree with the notion that the majority of Muslims are peaceful, the fact becomes less vivid every single day when someone like this chooses to showcase his “peace” by attacking the United States government because it’s doing everything in its power to protect 300 million lives!
Moreover; his claim of being looked at because of the way he looks is preposterous in his specific case! The FBI were given a tip! What did he expect them to do with it?
If overfed Polish boys were guilty of the same thing and someone had reason to believe I was a threat, I would expect nothing but the same thing that happened to Elahi.
Taking into account the fact that 100% of Democrats’ hope that the U.S. would sustain an embarrassing loss in Iraq have diminished, I see now that certain liberal journalists have shifted the attention somewhere else.
Kevin “Drama-Queen” Sites; the magnificient journalist that he is, begins the article (which includes a video) by asking:
What would you do if you were suspected of a crime that could send you to a jail cell in Guantanamo Bay for untold years?
Well, I’d like to end this post by asking three things:
Why in the hell was he allowed to stay in the United States when it was even suspected that he had explosives removed from a storage shed after 9/11!?
If he doesn’t understand that there are 299,999,999 other people residing in this country that need protection from people that look like him, why doesn’t he use his P/R to attack the crazy lunatics that have brought this kind of embarrassment onto him? No, somehow the U.S. Government is who he has the problem with. If you ask me, the U.S. Government might need to take one more look!
If he truly doesn’t understand why we have to be protected, why the hell doesn’t he just leave?
The sad fact is he was suspected to have had explosives stored in a rented shed AFTER 9/11 and he was still allowed to stay in the country during the investigation. The moral of the story here isn’t that his life was terribly interrupted, rather that the Patriot Act isn’t harsh enough.
