Hussein Zorkot

September 18, 2007 Leave a comment Go to comments

Arrested on 9-11 with a loaded Ak-47 and camouflage paint.  Papers associated with the suspect indicate he wanted to start his personal jihad on 9-8.  His website is loaded with the usual rattling jihadist theme music.

Officials state as follows:

According to Dearborn Mayor “Jack” O“Reilly, Jr., the release of information about the case was delayed until after Zarkot’s arraignment and late in the day that marked the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. City officials feared that announcing the arrest of an armed Arabic man so close to anniversary of the attack would stir anti-Muslim sentiments and fan the flames of terrorism.

Yeah….we would not want an alert public.  This type of political correctness gets people killed. Realizing there would be a few people who would respond inappropriately is best dealt with through positive outreach utilizing the media.  The decisions made by a government must not unduly place the population masses in harms way.   Every effort needs to be made to protect the minority population from negative blow back during these types of situations.

Only a law enforcement interest could excuse this type of delay.  If the police and FBI needed more time to coordinate and investigate possible associates, it would be prudent for the government to pause before the release of information.
