Spontaneous Movie Review in Lower Manhattan

From the New York Post:

A terrorist tried to blow up the Federal Reserve Bank in Lower Manhattan with a 1,000-pound bomb this morning, authorities said.

Quazi Mohammad Rezwanul Ahsan Nafis, 21, parked a van filled with what he thought were real explosives outside of the Liberty Street building, sources said, then tried to set them off using a cell phone detonator.

So a Muslim guy tries to blow up the Federal Reserve. Did Google take down that YouTube video? And replace it with a Ron Paul speech?

Not to worry. Candy Crowley says the president already declared this an “act of terror” during a champagne reception with Sarah Jessica Parker back in the spring.

Funniest line:

In a statement meant to take responsibility for the attack, Nafis said he wanted to “destroy America,” by targeting its economy.

So he parked a van full of Dodd/Frank and Obamacare regulations out on Main Street.
