Ignorance & Ideology is a Dangerous Mix: How 25,000 could have been killed by Political Correctness.

Bryon York has an article up this morning in the Washington Examiner that details the ignorance of the Portland Oregon's City Council going back to 2005.  The Council, working with the ACLU and angry with the Bush Administrations 'conduct on the war on terror', decided that Political Correctness out weighed the safety of their citizens and banned their law enforcement teams from working with the FBI on any Joint Terrorist Task Force.

Fast forward to 2010 where we have the Towns People gathered for the celebration of Annual Lighting of the Christmas Tree at the Portland's Pioneer Courthouse Square. Meanwhile,Mohamed Osman Mohamud, a Somali-born naturalized U.S. citizen and unknowingly working with undercover FBI agents, had dreams of a jihad dancing in his head.

In the Mohamud case, it appears that Portland's anti-law enforcement stand might actually have influenced Mohamud's decision to undertake an attack in the city.  According to the FBI affidavit, the undercover agents asked whether he worried that law enforcement would stop him. "In Portland?" Mohamud replied.  "Not really.  They don't see it as a place where anything will happen.  People say, you know, why, anybody want to do something in Portland, you know, it's on the west coast, it's in Oregon, and Oregon's, like you know, nobody ever thinks about it."

And how does the current Mayor Portland Oregon feel about a Joint Terrorist Task force today?. "[Adams] stressed that he has much more faith in the Obama administration and the leadership of the U.S. Attorney’s office now than he did in 2005."  You got that..  It's Bush's Fault.
