Portland, OR: Somali Christmas tree bomber’s conviction upheld

Posted by Ann Corcoran on December 20, 2016

I completely missed this news earlier in the month, so thanks to Creeping Sharia for posting it.

And, I should have seen it since I have been writing about Mohamed Mohamud recently.  See ten Islamic refugee terror attacks/foiled plots here.  I wrote that post because I was sick of hearing refugee industry advocates say there have been no US refugees involved in terror attacks. The fact that this one fell short of his goal to kill innocents seems to have escaped them. What! It doesn’t count if you don’t succeed!

From AP:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) – A federal appeals court has upheld the conviction of Mohamed Mohamud, the Somali American sentenced to 30 years in prison for plotting to bomb downtown Portland during the annual lighting of a Christmas tree.

The truck bomb was a fake given to him in 2010 by undercover FBI agents posing as terrorists.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday that a U.S. District Court judge properly rejected Mohamud’s claim of entrapment. The 50-page opinion states the government’s conduct was quite aggressive, but the sting fell short of a due process violation.

The court also rejected an assertion that the warrantless surveillance of his foreign communications violated his constitutional rights.

Next! How many Somalis have entered the US in the first ten weeks of Fiscal Year 2017. ***Update*** here it is.

  1. Too bad we have to pay for his cushy little stay in prison. He should be put to work at hard labor, then deported after he serves his sentence. Instead he will sit around watching TV, complain about his halal meals, and whine that we are not doing enough to accommodate his religion.

    So, basically, look for 30 years of recruiting new terrorists from this guy. I think any number of us could have thought of a much better punishment, which would have put an “end” to his terrorism.

      He looks kind of “girlish”. He may end up as some jailhouse “Aisha”. That would be OK because he’s over nine years old which was when the prophet Muhammad, “the perfect example” started banging Aisha the wife he married when she was six years old and he was fifty something , the dirty old child molester.
