“To Be, or not 212(a)(3)(B)… That Is the Question.”
UPDATE: Funny that the Ruskies had Momma on tap, yeh? The “knock-off jihadis” model is unravelling.
Our buddy Abdul Rahman Ali (Who?) seems to have attracted a lot of undesired attention.

The Blaze is on the, um, trail. (Sorry – Ed.) They have a number of questions about Alharbi (and one ought not be surprised should they have answers, too.)
One guess out there is that the triggers were in external transmitters operated by a second party (or parties.) One transmitter-receiver may have been low-signal (perhaps noise, perhaps RF attenuation) but the trigger man had to get perilously close, close enough to get hurt. (That, or he wasn’t all that bright, know what I mean? – Ed.) Blowing yourself up is the work of the Wiley Coyote, not of a “genius” running two mules. Well, the “genius” damn near blows himself up but does get himself tackled, arrested and tagged 212(a)(3)(B) after an extensive search of his apartment. Then a mumm-ification courtesy of a soddy diplomat and a lib judge. Amateur all the way, baby. Which suggests that the Bros back home weren’t unanimously in on it.
And to put bacon on this turkey (Mmmmm! Bacon! – Ed.) the timing couldn’t have been worse for those hoping to obtain sympathy resulting in release for The Blonde Sheik. (Perhaps he has opponents at home hoping to keep him locked-up, yes? – Ed.) Well, Ockham’s Razor rather suggests the doofus scenario. We need more data.
…and yours truly would like to know if there were two trigger men. Perhaps a trip to the attic is in order.
