White House spokesman Bill Burton says Obama told the officers Thursday that the city’s anti-terrorism efforts are a model for the rest of the country.

A Pakistani-born U.S. citizen is accused of trying to detonate a bomb-laden vehicle in Times Square.

Obama is in New York for a Democratic congressional fundraiser. He traveled to Buffalo earlier in the day to discuss the economy.

The Kenyan says good job and at the same time cuts anti-terrorism funding for NYC by 25%.
What a joke!
And to make matters worse, he should be thanking the hot dog vendor! The cops FAILED! We are just lucky that the bomb was faulty.
But honestly, I didn't expect anything different from the Kenyan.

Obama would also personally thank the CIA agents and their counterparts in the ISI for their excellent job pulling off this false flag operation.
Hat Tip to the other government agencies who helped hide the guy "responsible" for the attack. Obama wants the American people to know that all agents involved have been paid well. Soon we will be starting another unnecessary war!
