|"Why Us?" - Portland Residents in a State of Confusion|
From this predictably weak-willed follow-up story to Osman's take down, entitled "Friends Say Bombing Suspect Appeared Changed of Late" (oh really?), we have excised for you a few choice snippets.
Nothing to see here, folks, Move along.
You see, ole' Moohamood was just :
"...a well adjusted young American teenager..." (1st ¶) ;
"...'He seemed to be in a state of confusion'..." (3rd ¶) ;
"...'He wasn't like that. He was just like everybody else'..." (9th ¶) ;
Of course he was.
"...Many Muslims in Oregon worried they would face a backlash. And on Sunday, local Muslim leaders emphasized that the case was an isolated incident..." (10th ¶) ;
The evil islamophobes of Oregon need to be watched.
"...'Osman was very sophisticated'..." (20th ¶);
Just a regular American teenager.
"...'He seemed like a great kid'..." (23rd ¶) ;
"...Some young Somali men in the United States struggle to find a sense of belonging..." (30th ¶) :
It's obviously our fault.
"...'This kid has friends here, went to school here,' said Mr. Alyajouri. 'It's so stupid. Nobody I know thinks that way'..." (final ¶).
