Kosovo native plotted Tampa bombings, feds say CNN
(CNN) -- A Florida man,Saturday for allegedly plotting to bomb night clubs and the sheriff's headquarters in Tampa, Florida, faces a federal judge on a terror charge Monday afternoon, federal prosecutors said.
Sami Osmakac, a 25-year-old naturalized American born in Kosovo, planned a car bombing that would be followed by hostage-taking and the explosion of a suicide belt he planned to wear, according to a criminal complaint made public Monday.
"We all have to die, so why not die the Islamic way?" Osmakac allegedly told an undercover FBI, according to the complaint.
The federalof Osmakac began in September when a "confidential human source" told the FBI that Osmakac, a resident of Pinellas , Florida, "asked for al Qaeda flags," the complaint said.
A law enforcement official, who asked not to be identified because the official was not authorized to talk about the probe, said the suspect does not appear to have any ties to al Qaeda, and early information indicated he was "self-radicalized."
[...] By November, the suspect was discussing potential terror targets in Tampa and asked for the confidential source's help in getting guns and explosives for the attacks, the complaint said.
The government's source introduced Osmakac to an undercover FBI employee, which led to a December 21 meeting during which the suspect said "he wished to acquire an AK-47-style machine gun, Uzi submachine guns, high capacity magazines, grenades and an explosive belt," the complaint said. He later allegedly gave the FBI employee a $500 down payment for the weapons, it said.
"The explosives and firearms that he allegedly sought and attempted to use were rendered inoperable by law enforcement and posed no threat to the public," the government said.
Osmakac, in a New Year's Day meeting with the undercover FBI employee, outlined his plot, it said. His alleged bomb targets were "night clubs in the Ybor City area of Tampa, the operationsof the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office in Ybor City and a in the South Tampa area of Tampa," the government said.
After the car bombing, he would retrieve guns and explosives stashed in a Tampa hotel room to begin the second phase of his attacks, the complaint said.
He told the FBI employee that "he wanted to use the explosive belt to 'get in somewhere where there's a lot of people' and take hostages," the complaint said. He would then demand that the FBI "release some prisoners," it said.
"Once I have this ... they can take me in five million pieces," he allegedly said, "an apparent reference to the explosive belt that would be attached to his waist," the government said.
FBI agents arrested Osmakac Saturday night, just after he "made a video of himself explaining his motives for carrying out the planned violent attack," the government said.
"Self-radicalized"?!? The politically correct dhimmified term borders on the absurd. No ties to al-Qeada? He asked for an al-Qaeda flag. How about digging a little bit deeper .... We wouldn't want to unearth that a Muslim who immigrated here from Kosovo was radicalized and followed Al-Qeada's Jihad Way would we? That could prove that we "Islamophobes" (as dhimmis like to call us) - the truth-tellers who reveal the violence of radical Islam - are correct in our views. Of course dhimmis, progressives, or the politically correct, ignore the facts and the reality just because it doesn't fit into their preconceived notions that have been robotically programmed into their brains by secularists in society today. We wouldn't want to discredit the "religion of peace" would we? Especially while our military and pro-lifers have been classified as "domestic terrorists" by Homeland Security even though there is no proof to suggest that those who are truly pro-life endorse violence. But the evidence that shows how violence has permeated the "religion of peace" across the globe is prevalent.
Atlas Shrugs has found a video which shows this same devout Muslim from Kosovo having attacked and bloodied Christian street preachers.
Does having a conversation and even possibly provoking with words equal battery? This is one ignorant, arrogant, dhimmi police officer.
From Atlas Shrugs:
has emerged that shows how pious and violent Sami Osmakac really was. Devout Muslim Osmakac attacked and bloodied Christian street preachers in the above video (minute 5:20). Please stay with the video if you have time, because it is important that you see the pious Osmakac, who was the complete aggressor, cry victim to the police (minute 8:14), saying he was "insulted," the same ficticious narrative we are bombarded with daily by Islamic groups and Muslim Brotherhoood organizations like CAIR.
The police, in what has become standard practice in dealing with Islamic supremacists, treat the perp and the victim with equal contempt, actually charging the bloodied Christian with battery. According to the youtube description:
They would not view the video nor did they talk to any of the witnesses. Here is the video you be the judge and then call the Tampa police department and tell them to drop these trumped up charges and do theirproperly. Case # 11-217735, ORI# 0290200 The (I hate to give him this title) police officers name and badge number are Kevin Krupa Badge # 565.
Here is their number (813) 242-3800
You can also call the Chief of Police 813-276-3799
Or the Mayor at 813-274-8251
The charge made against the Christian protester is bogus.
