Censorship in the news or just another liberal coverup. How the news reported the latest NYC bomb plot by another Muslim convert.

Fox News didn't mention it, the New York Daily News didn't say it and neither did the New York Times or the Associated Press. Only one news source covered the whole story about the latest arrest in New York City of an alleged Islamic terrorist and that was ABC World News. On their broadcast last night, weekend anchor David Muir opened the story about the man arrested by the New York City police by saying: Jose Pimentel, a recent convert to Islam, was arrested for allegedly making bombs in New York City. And on their web site, ABC World News carries the story today:
Alleged 'Lone Wolf' Arrested in New York on Terror Charges
A Muslim convert arrested for allegedly making bombs in New York City was inspired by radical cleric Anwar Awlaki and was allegedly plotting to attack U.S. servicemen and police officers, according to officials.

A five-count criminal complaint against Jose Pimentel of Washington Heights says that Pimentel planned "to build a bomb and use a bomb to assassinate U.S. servicemen and women returning from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan."

New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg said during a press conference this evening that Pimentel, an unemployed loner who lives with his mother, also wanted to kill police officers, and called him a "27-year-old al Qaeda sympathizer."
And further down in the story:
An American citizen, Pimentel was born in the Dominican Republic and came to the United States at age eight. After converting to Islam, he went by the name Muhammed Yusef.
Also noteworthy is the fact that the New York City Police Commissioner said that his department did not coordinate their actions with the Federal government about this investigation. Even the mayor of New York, Michael Bloomberg, who has had so much praise for Muslims and the Ground Zero mosque project, couldn't bring himself to admit that this bomb maker, like so many others before him, was another Muslim inspired by the teachings of Islam to hate America. Some critics say that the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security is too concerned with Right Wing terrorists such as Armed Forces veterans, Pro-Life groups and NRA members (see  (U//FOUO) Rightwing Extremism: Current. Economic and Political Climate Fueling. Resurgence in Radicalization and Recruitment.) and couldn't spot a Muslim terrorist unless he left his camel in an airport parking lot. So its encouraging to read about the great work being done by the NYPD.
It was widely reported that the New York City Police Department has already developed an extensive intelligence division with the help of the CIA that has infiltrated mosques and other Muslim groups. The NYPD has a published a 90-page report NYPD Radicalization in the West: The Homegrown Threat available online that describes their purpose and rationale.  Fox News did report more on why the New York City police department acted alone on this arrest.
The New York Police Department's Intelligence Division was involved in the arrest. Kelly said Pimentel spent most of his years in Manhattan and lived about five years in Schenectady. He said police in Albany tipped New York City police off to Pimentel's activities.

Asked why federal authorities were not involved in the case, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance Jr. said there was communication with them but his office felt that given the timeline "it was appropriate to proceed under state charges."

About 1,000 of the city's roughly 35,000 officers are assigned each day to counterterrorism operations. The NYPD also sends officers overseas to report on how other cities deal with terrorism. Through federal grants and city funding, the NYPD has spent millions of dollars on technology to outfit the department with the latest tools -- from portable radiation detectors to the network of hundreds of cameras that can track suspicious activity.
Considering the fact that the Department of Defense, the FBI and the Justice Department have all purged any mention of Islam from their training manuals in connection with terrorism, it is perfectly understandable why the NYPD chooses to act alone to combat this very real threat. One can only wonder why there are so many people who convert to Islam see a reason afterward to try and kill Americans. New York City alone has stopped 13 terrorist plots just since 9-11-2001. Not a single one involved any religion other than Islam.
