MSM Fails To Note Bombing Suspect Is An Iraqi

From the Arizona Republic:

Details emerge on arrest in Casa Grande bombing

By D.S. Woodfill and Wendy Halloran | Dec 1, 2012

More details emerged about the man authorities arrested in connection to the investigation of a bombing at a government building in downtown Casa Grande on Friday.

This is just another example of the mainstream news media’s criminal malpractice. The bombing of a Social Security office in Casa Grande, Arizona was reported by some in the mainstream media on Friday. But there has been no national follow-up on the original reports, which did not mention any suspects.

And even subsequent coverage in the local has been very careful to leave out some seemingly significant details. For instance, even the Arizona Republic’s report neglects to mention the fact that the suspect is an Iraqi refugee.

Abdullatif Aldosary [sic], 47, was arrested by Casa Grande Police Friday morning shortly after a homemade explosive rocked the Social Security Administration office at 501 N. Marshall St. at about 8 a.m., a sources close to the case told The Republic and 12 News.

The sources said Aldosary may face a myriad of state and federal charges and expected him to be arraigned in U.S. District Court in downtown Phoenix on Monday.

But, according to another report, those charges will not include domestic terrorism, for some odd reason.

It’s not clear if investigators have determined a suspected motive in the bombing. Authorities served a search warrant on Aldosary’s home in Coolidge on Friday.

The FBI is leading a team of investigators that includes the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and local law enforcement…

Records from the Arizona Department of Corrections show Abdullatif Aldosary did time in state prison for aggravated harassment case. Details in the case are unclear, but records show he was sentenced in Maricopa County Superior Court. He was released in 2009. A search of public records also show he had four addresses since Oct. 1998 including residences in Tempe, Phoenix and Coolidge.

According to another local report, Mr. Aldosary is also currently involved in an assault and disorderly conduct case in Casa Grande.

The office building, which normally has 14 workers, was closed, according to Social Security Administration officials. The explosion charred a back entrance to the building.

No one was reported injured. The monetary amount of the damage had not been released Friday…

But the Fox News Phoenix affiliate, KSAZ, gives us some other minor details:

Suspect in custody in connection to Social Security explosion in Casa Grande

By Jill Monier | Dec 1, 2012

CASA GRANDE, Ariz. – A 47-year old Iraqi refugee is in federal custody Saturday in connection with an explosion at a Social Security office in Casa Grande…

"I’m positive in my heart and my soul he had nothing to do with this," said Swannee Welsh. Welsh believes her neighbor, Abdul Latif Aldosary is being unfairly targeted. She says he’s a refugee from Iraq.

"I’ve never seen him with a match even, he doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, he doesn’t move, he doesn’t go to the mosque," said Welsh.

But Saturday, federal agents were still searching Aldosary’s home at 47th Street and Lemon in Coolidge…

So even this article spends most of the time trying to tell us what a great person the suspect is.

Investigators believe someone threw an explosive out a car window, causing the entry door to become blackened and charred…

"He was just in that neighborhood because he goes to unemployment offices and other government buildings over there but he hasn’t any problems against America; he’s very thankful he got to be a refuge somewhere," said Welsh…

Well, Iraqis are famous for the gratitude to America.

"It’s kind of a surprise, wouldn’t expect a neighbor across the street to be involved in something like that," said Jerry Vining, Aldosary’s neighbor. "I’ll be the most stunned person if it turns out he did something like that," said Welsh.

Aldosary has served time for aggravated harassment after he threatened an employer who wasn’t giving him enough hours.

FOX 10 spoke with that employer Saturday and they say Aldosary made threatening calls and sent letters, but none mentioned explosives

Yep, Mr. Aldosary sounds like he is incredibly grateful for having been given refuge in the US.

    8:00 am Friday morning the Social Security office was closed, but others in the building were shaken out of their chairs. I guess they didn’t get the warning.

    The middle-eastern terrorist’s 24/7 alibi neighbor really said those things. Scary looking guy.
