At the 1:35 point in the video to the right we find this little insert by CBS reporter, Bob Orr (per NewsBusters):
Investigators say a quest for revenge seems to have played some role, but personal financial pressures may also have pushed Shahzad to act. He became a U.S. citizen just a year ago, but he has not realized any American dream. He quit his job, lost his house, and was separated from his family.
This is what the Left thinks… no one could do what they do in these cases except that they have lost some financial stability. Which is a drive for them to use Fannie and Freddie to make housing “affordable” to all. Even if everyone had a house and a job, you would still have Islamic extremists attacking.
