A California man locates his stolen car, and those who occupy it flee the scene, leaving behind Iraqi money and an explosive device in the car. But, per usual, where there are huge red flags, the FBI says, “No terrorism here, people (watch the video).” Yup, the Sgt. Schultz of Federal law enforcement keeps on givin’.
Oh, and authorities are pawning this whole thing off on a Latino guy, without asking why he was carrying an IED along with “a pile of Iraqi cash.” Those Latinos–always with a penchant for Iraqi dinars and explosive devices, ya know?
But, by basic deduction, it’s quite obvious the FBI is lying and believes this is a terrorism matter. If this were just a car theft, it would be a local police matter. If it was just a car theft and a matter of explosives, the ATF would take over. If it was a car theft involving an illegal alien–from Mexico OR Iraq–ICE would have the case (or look the other way and make local police take care of it and release the alien to freedom, per usual). But the FBI is the lead agency “dealing” with terrorism. That’s why the Feeble But Interloping agency is involved with this case.
The FBI is now involved in the theft of a car after it was found in Los Lunas with an explosive device and Iraqi currency inside FBI agents say that they have ruled out terrorism .
The car was reported stolen last week. After the theft, the car’s owner was fueling his motorcycle when he spotted his stolen car.
“While he was refueling his motorcycle, low and behold, the vehicle that he had reported stolen that belongs to him happened to pull into the gas station area also,” said Los Lunas Police Captain Charles Nuanes.
The car’s owner pulled the keys out of the ignition of his stolen car and the people in the car fled.
When police arrived, they found the explosive device and less than $1,000 worth of Iraqi cash.
“We don’t know what their intentions were,” said Nuanes. “We don’t know what they were planning on doing with any of this.”
Police suspect Toby Jaramillo, who is well known to Valencia County law enforcement, was behind the car’s theft. He’s in jail charged with stealing another car.
Hmmm . . . so Police Captain Nuanes doesn’t know what their intentions were or what they were planning on doing. I’d say with an explosive device and Iraqi, they weren’t headed to a beach party. I mean, I’m no cop, but I think it’s quite obvious their intentions weren’t good ones.
But we must always assume the best whenever we encounter car thieves on American soil, carrying Mid-Eastern cash and explosive devices.
Anything other than that would be “un-American.”
It sounds to me like this man, Jaramillo, likely helped smuggle Iraqi terrorists into the country, and may even be involved with them in other ways.
Thanks to forever vigilant reader Duane for the tip. He asks me whatever happened to the case of Sasan Ghazal, the Iranian caught in February in North Carolina with illegal drugs and and an explosive device in his car.
Good question. Will have to look into it to see how the FBI pawned that one off on the “not terrorism” angle.
