Keep calm and ignore all obvious signs of danger

Saamer Akhshabi

Explosive incendiary devices manufactured by student posed no threat whatsoever.

Saamer Akhshabi,  A Georgia Tech student from Iran who burned himself very badly while making molotov cocktails died yesterday.  He had spent the past week in agony at a hospital with third-degree burns over 90% of his body.

When he was removed from his apartment last week, after a huge explosion caught his neighbors' attention, police and FBI agents found evidence that he was manufacturing molotov cocktails.

All who knew this computer engineering student praised him as very intelligent and charming.

The question remains: why was he making molotov cocktails?

Unfortunately, that question has been answered by authorities  according to the official game plan of the Obama Ministry of Truth:

"There is nothing wrong here.  Pay no attention to the threat behind the curtain.  Move on.   We will never be in danger.  Think happy thoughts."

Here is the official word, from Georgia Tech:

“We have worked closely with other law enforcement agencies during the investigation of this tragic incident. The FBI has relayed that, to date, they have not developed any information or evidence indicating criminal intent in this investigation,” said GTPD interim Chief Robert Connolly. “As a result of the above, it was determined that Mr. Akshabi was not a threat to the Georgia Tech community."

Notice please, that the word "terrorism" is absent from the quote above.  Notice also that the event is dealt with in terms of  "criminal intent" and that the wordsmiths cleverly use this smokescreen to avoid the  sticky issue of the  molotov cocktails.

So, were the incendiary devices part of a fraternity prank?  A hobby, not much different from stamp collecting?  A class assignment for Computing 743 ?

This response from the authorities assumes that the public is very gullible or stupid.  It's part of a larger pattern, all to familiar in our sad day and age: all threats are officially ignored.  The list is way too long, for there are several items added to it every day -- items that are seldom checked or questioned by the news media.

Nothing is a threat.  No one is a threat.  Kumbaya.  We have no enemies.  Let's reduce our military.  Keep calm and put your head back in the sand.  Shred that list of terrorist states.

    Oh, well, let's not forget that to the communist ghetto agitator "our enemies" are right-wing Americans, his own population. You know, the type that vote for far more patriotic and qualified people like Reagan and Romney, those are the "enemies". Besides, according to his words during the infamous Apology Tour through the Middle East, USA has a lot to thank Islam for. The exposure of Islam's social reality would only distract us away from our search for such Islamic contributions. I myself, I'm still searching...
