Alert Janet Napolitano: Right Wing Terrorist Arrested in Texas

Did I say right wing? I meant incompetent radical left-wing eco-terrorist:

Former California resident Stephen James Murphy was taken into custody at his home in Arlington, Texas, Wednesday, said FBI Los Angeles director Keith Bolcar in a release about the arrest.

Murphy was named in a criminal complaint filed in federal court in Los Angeles charging him with the 2006 attempted arson of unfinished townhouses in Pasadena, Calif., according to Bolcar.

On Sept. 19, 2006, the Pasadena Fire Department was called to the townhouse construction site after a "crude incendiary device" made out of cigarettes was discovered there, according to the complaint. The device failed to go off.

Construction workers couldn't start one of the tractors and noticed a message written in marker on the side that read, "ANOTHER TRACTOR DECOMMISSIONED BY THE E.L.F." a reference to the Earth Liberation Front, an environmental extremist group.

It's only a matter of time until those loons kill someone.

(Not counting the Unabomber, though he's unquestionably a loon.)

I can breath a sigh of relief that in the first nine months of the Obama Administration, we've had at least 5 attempted terrorist attacks thwarted and arrests made. In the first nine months of the Bush Administration, they couldn't even prevent 1.

MMM MMM MMM BARRACK HUSSEIN OBAMA!!! lol

You're right. Under the security provisions as practiced by the Clinton Administration and inherited by Bush, we couldn't stop one. Under the Bush Administration security measures Obama inherited, he was able to thwart five.

That says volumes for the differences in the national security philosophies of the two parties.

I don't knooooowwwww....9 months is an awful lot of time to correct these "Clinton" security measures if they were so bad. Hey, look on the bright side...for the first nine months at least Crawford Texas was safe and secure right? Safest vacation spot in the World.

Given how many basic security things were illegal or against SOP for the start of Bush's first term-- and how there was no way he'd get support for changing them, if he'd tried-- it's purely idiotic to try to compare Obama's first 9 vs Bush's.

Insert obvious observation here.

Did ELF take credit for the tower in PA that went down 3 hours before the towers in WA ?

Yes they did. I don't have the link to ELF's press office (??!!), but the ADL had a report on this incident.

iconoclast, I know ELF laid claim to the Washington towers, but I haven't found a report of them claiming the PA tower.

You are right. I mistook the Whitehall towers for the Everett towers.

ELF does not seem to be taking credit for those towers, though there are a number of other successful vandalisms bragged about on their website.

It is odd that this website is allowed to exist.
