Arizona: Iraqi Refugee Arrested For Bombing Social Security Office With IED In Casa Grande, Media Silence Ensues


If a white male who attended a church once when he was 12 had been arrested, this would have been neck-breaking headline news for days coupled with a non-stop discussion regarding the threat in America posed by “right-wing radicals” …

https://i2.wp.com/i2.cdn.turner.com/cnn/dam/assets/121201025245-ssa-explosion-story-body.jpgPJ Media – “The typically quiet town of Casa Grande, Arizona was rocked by an explosion at the local Social Security Administration office early Friday morning by what appears to an improvised explosive device (IED). No one was hurt in the explosion, which occurred shortly before the office was scheduled to open. The explosion was reportedly heard and felt all over the area.

While the little town of Casa Grande and the nearby Phoenix area is talking about the incident, virtually no one else is. In fact, the only reason I was following the story is because I’m presently in the area and saw the initial reports on the explosion and continued to look into it .

Within 90 minutes of the explosion police had a suspect in custody. But you wouldn’t know it from reading the establishment media reports this past weekend. One reason might be the suspect is 47 year-old Abdullatif Aldosary of Coolidge, AZ, an Iraqi refugee.

On Friday, federal agents served a search warrant on his home. Aldosary has been on the radar of the Department of Homeland Security for at least the past couple of years.

Late Sunday afternoon, I confirmed with a source at the Phoenix FBI office that the case is being investigated as an act of domestic terrorism. The source said that Aldosary is expected to be charged with a host of federal and state explosives and arson charges.

On Saturday, the Casa Grande Dispatch reported:

An explosive device was detonated Friday morning by the back door of the U.S. Social Security Administration office, shaking downtown Casa Grande, but no one was injured.

Federal agents, including those of the FBI, rushed to the scene. The FBI would not confirm whether anyone was in custody, but the Casa Grande Dispatch learned that a Coolidge resident, Abdullatif A. Aldosary, 47, was being questioned. The investigation involved agents’ going to his home at 4732 W. Lemon Ave., on the west side of Coolidge.

The device exploded at 8:24 a.m. at the federal office, 501 N. Marshall St. The back door and wall were charred and debris was thrown throughout the back parking lot, damaging a car parked nearby.

The office was not yet open but more than 10 employees were inside, police said.

A witness was able to provide police with a license plate number on a small dark-colored compact car that fled the scene. The registration showed an address in the Martin Valley subdivision of Coolidge. Coolidge Police Department officers found the vehicle at the Lemon Avenue address. The homeowner, Aldosary, was turned over to the FBI shortly before 10 a.m.

County recorder records show Aldosary bought the house on Aug. 12, 2008. According to court records, he was charged in September with assault and disorderly conduct. He also was charged in March 2008 with four counts of aggravated harassment at the request of the U.S. Homeland Security Department.

FBI, Homeland Security, Federal Protective Service and U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents were at the scene collecting evidence throughout the day.

Another news report states that Aldosary served eight months in prison for that earlier aggravated harassment case.

Even though Aldosary’s identity was known to news agencies on Friday after his arrest, national and international media outlets, such as CNN and Reuters who published reports late Friday night, noted his arrest but not his identity. And none but local media have reported Aldosary’s name ever since.

Now imagine if a Tea Partier – or even someone who shared the same name as a Tea Partier – had fire bombed a federal facility less than a month after Barack Obama’s reelection. Anyone think it would be getting more media coverage?” Source – PJ Media.

    ACTS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE ONLY GARNER THE HEADLINES WHEN THE PERK IS WHITE OR A RIGHT WINGER. ACTS COMMITTED BY ARABS OR MUSLIMS OR EVEN CONVERTED MUSLIMS ARE KEPT AT ARMS LENGTH—REMEMBER THE LITTLE ROCK SHOOTING OUTSIDE AN ARMED FORCES RECRUITING CENTER. A CLEAR ACT OF TERRORISM, BUT NEVER REPORTED AS THAT.
