How America reacted
The news of Mohamed Osman Mohamud's attempt to explode a large bomb at a crowded Christmas tree lighting in Portland, Oregon, was all over the internet yesterday, and will be all over the newspapers today. The picture above was featured in all the stories.
Virtually every person who saw the story probably had some version of the following train of thought:
Wow, he's sorta pretty.....He looks a little like David Bowie's wife Imam.....That bomb woulda killed a shitload of people.......Thank God the FBI caught onto him......That guy was a naturalized American citizen, too. We gotta stop letting in all these goddamn terrorists into the country. It's so incredibly stupid not to profile.
Can't say I disagree.
