From theastutebloggers: We got him because the unexploded bomb and intact car enabled us to immediately find tons of evidence and follow leads AT ONCE.
Had the car bomb exploded he would have escaped.
IOW: THIS WHOLE EPISODE IS AN EPIC FAIL - FOR OUR FBI, CIA, NYPD, THE NSC ET AL - AND OF COURSE FOR THE BOMBER.
No one in law enforcement or intelligence and nobody in our national security apparatus should be gloating.
THEY FAILED US AGAIN.
AND ANOTHER THING:
Why did they have to nab him here in NYC?!
They could've let him get to Dubai and followed him and found some of his comrades. Let him use his cellphone a lot...
And then they might have found a way for the Mossad to nab him in Dubai and hand him off to the Egyptians.
And then we could've let the Egyptians "interrogate" this bastard.
In a way, Obama and Holder have protected the Times Square Bomber - by arresting him, by arresting him here, and by reading him his rights.
AND THIS MAKES US LESS SAFE.
