The Times Square Bomber Explains Reality To Eric Holder

Via Power Line
Eric Holder embarrassed himself last month in front of the House Judiciary Committee and the world when he simply could not bring himself to admit the reality of radical Islam and Islamofascist terror. Unfortunately for those in the administration who would pass off jihad as a beautiful thing, the very creature whose existence Holder and Obama would deny actually set the record straight from a U.S. District Court in Manhattan yesterday:
Calling himself a Muslim soldier, a defiant Pakistan-born U.S. citizen pleaded guilty Monday to carrying out the failed Times Square car bombing and left a sinister warning that unless the U.S. leaves Muslim lands alone, "we will be attacking U.S."

Wearing a white skull cap, prison smocks and a dark beard, Faisal Shahzad entered the plea in U.S. District Court in Manhattan just days after a federal grand jury indicted him on 10 terrorism and weapons counts, some of which carried mandatory life prison sentences. He pleaded guilty to them all.

U.S. District Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum challenged Shahzad repeatedly with questions such as whether he had worried about killing children in Times Square.

"One has to understand where I'm coming from," Shahzad calmly replied. "I consider myself ... a Muslim soldier."
Scott Johnson concludes,
Now that may not be clear enough for Attorney General Holder. It probably isn't. Holder would probably take issue with Shahzad concerning the basis of his actions. But it should do for the citizen of average intelligence.

And Obama administration counterterror adviser John Brennan will undoubtedly want to instruct Shahzad in the correct understanding of Islamic doctrine. But in the meantime Shahzad has given anyone who is paying attention an important clue.
