Two days ago, liberal journalist Robert Dreyfuss wrote:
It may be that the Pakistan-based Taliban, the Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP), has quietly established a Connecticut franchise while we weren't looking. That's possible. But it seems far more likely to me that the perpetrator of the bungled Times Square bomb plot was either a lone nut job or a member of some squirrely branch of the Tea Party, anti-government far right. Which actually exists in Connecticut, where, it seems, the car's license plates were stolen.
Turns out it was a Pakistani with ties to the Taliban. Boy did you get that prediction wrong. Maybe you should quit your job and let people with better insights into world affairs write editorials. Such as yours truly. My HBD-based prediction from two days ago was dead-on accurate:
Also, because he's not smart enough to build a bomb that works, he was probably also not smart enough to hide his tracks from the massive investigation that's now underway to find him. I predict he will be caught.

Mayor Bloomberg was guilty of the same left wing reasoning:
Before the Times Square car bomb suspect was arrested, Mayor Bloomberg told Katie Couric last night that he thought the suspect acted alone, "If I had to guess, twenty five cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown maybe a mentally deranged person or someone with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything."
