Time Square Attempted Bombing Was A Result Of Obama's Bow to Saudia Arabian King
The Times Square bomb "100% worked," the NYPD was "dead beat" by the bomber, and President Barack Obama's bow to the Saudi King led to the plot, in the first place. That's all true if you believe Fox News guest Michael Scheuer. picked by 2manyusernames 1 year ago
