Even Janet Napolitano is saying that the car bomb defused in Times Square last night was a “potential terrorist attack.” One wonders what “three propane tanks, consumer-grade fireworks, two filled 5-gallon gasoline containers, and two clocks with batteries, electrical wire and other components” could be other than a terrorist attack, but I leave that to the learned analysts.
In any case, we know that when Napolitano thinks “terrorist” she doesn’t think “Islamic jihadist” but rather “right-wing extremist,” so even if this was an attempted Islamic jihad attack, it might take DHS awhile to find that out, and the mainstream media awhile to report it. But one clue comes from Jihad Watch reader Michael M.: “the vehicle was parked on 45th Street between 7th and 8th avenues in New York City. This is the location of VIACOM, Inc. offices. VIACOM owns Comedy Central. Comedy Central as we all know is the home of ‘South Park’. This information is omitted from every article I’ve come across so far.”
Maybe just a coincidence. Maybe not.
UPDATE: The Telegraph has noticed: “The location is also adjacent to the Viacom building, fuelling speculation that it might be linked to the company’s controversial South Park cartoon which recently depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.”
Note the now-universal mainstream media reference to “Prophet Muhammad,” as if we’re all Muslims now.
