Suicide bomber nabbed en route to Capitol with decoy explosives


Sales remain brisk at Fake Bombs, Incorporated (FBI), a corporation that seems to have found the perfect recession-proof target market.  Fox News brings us testimony from their latest satisfied customer:

Authorities have arrested a man allegedly on his way to the U.S. Capitol for what he thought would be a suicide attack on one of the nation’s most symbolic landmarks, Fox News has learned exclusively. 

The man, in his 30s and of Moroccan descent, was nabbed following a lengthy investigation by the FBI, initiated after he expressed interest in conducting an attack. It’s unclear how the FBI learned of his aspirations. 

The man thought undercover FBI agents assisting him in his plot were associates of Al Qaeda. 

The would-be bomber had been equipped with a phony suicide vest, and had been “under constant surveillance for some time,” so authorities say the public was in no danger.

As to the bomber, we don’t know much else about him yet, other than that a short time before his arrest, “he had been praying at a mosque in the Washington area.”
