All four men were US-born.

From the Daily News comes a timely timely report on a lowdown, homegrown, ex-moderate, 100% genuine Islamic activity:

The FBI busted a homegrown terror cell late Wednesday night as the men sneaked around a Jewish temple in Riverdale planting what they thought was packages of C-4 explosives, sources told the Daily News.

The four African American men, three of whom were said to be jailhouse converts to Islam, also allegedly had what they believed was a working Stinger missile in their car.

Officials said they hoped to shoot down a plane at Stewart Air National Guard Base in Newburgh in Orange County.


Arrested was alleged ringleader James Cromitie of Newburgh, the son of an Afghan immigrant and his African American wife.

Cromitie served a long stretch in prison in the past.

Alleged henchment David Williams, Onta Williams and Leguerre Payen were busted with him.

Sources said the three were jailhouse converts to Islam.

Here are my questions about this story. Why are we permitting Saudi Arabia to finance the training for a universal jailhouse da'wa and what is it that criminals find attractive about converting to Islam and engaging in jihadist razzias in their own backyards? Where stand the ikhwan CAIR and their spokesman Ibrahim Hooper in all of this? Do the Saudis find jailhouse conversions to be a cost effective jihadi recruiting strategy? Do they enjoy the clever irony? After all, we absorb the cost of the initial criminal activity plus we absorb the cost of housing the prisoners, and then we pay the Saudi-trained imam-chaplain to do the rest prior to their release.

The technique seems to be in maximal use all across the kuffar prisons of the Western world. Were we to halt the in-migration of Muslims to the USA would that make a difference to the Homeland Security program? Would it be safer to fly an airplane or be a Jew? What's really pathetic is that after all this stupidity we then go on to pay the directors and agents of the FBI to plan and infiltrate and entrap these traitors after we release them while they go about putting into action the Islamist belief system we enabled them to acquire while in prison. Why, the next thing you know, we'll be be cleaning up the wreckage from middle of a city or something. At our expense. Sheesh. Why don't we just convert and pay the jizya? It would be cheaper.

Cleaner Air? There must be some mistake

This just in:

President George W. Bush drew the ire of environmental groups throughout his eight years in the White House, perhaps the loudest in 2003 when he announced that he would end a Clean Air Act program that required older power plants, refineries and industrial sites to install pollution control devices when they expanded their operations.

But in looking over the data on air quality from the Bush years, Hayward notes that levels of most air pollutants decreased at a faster rate than they did during the Clinton administration.

How odd. How odd that people of good will, intellect and intention would come together without the specter of government compulsion to accomplish a socially useful purpose in course of making their own choices for their own purposes? That to accomplish a socially useful purpose might be one of their purposes? That that purpose might be cleaner air on its own merits? I wonder how that national forest policy of relaxing federal regulation in favor of local administration of local priorities worked out???
