Speaking on ‘America Now’ Monday night, host Buck Sexton commented on the would-be suicide bomber that sought death and destruction during the nation’s busiest rush hour; warning while the jihadist failed this time, the attack showed other ISIS-inspired fighters “how easy it is” to attack major American cities.
“The problem here with the way the narrative goes, is that from the Islamic State’s perspective, this shows many of their would-be jihadists –what happened today in New York City- it shows them that it’s easy,” said Buck. “It’s easy to get into a crowded part of a major US city. It’s easy to conceal some kind of a weapon or a bomb and you can strike at the very core of a city, or a town, anywhere in the country if you just have the will to murder innocent men, women, and children.”
“From our side of it, yes, there was no casualties so that’s a cause for real relief, but keep in mind that we got lucky, and we may not be lucky the next time around. That someone could come to this country, live here for seven years, and become so brainwashed and have so much hate in his heart for Americans,” he added.
“To be here in New York City for example, where this city is so diverse that it’s fair to say that every country in the world has people here. We are representative of people from all over the world. Akayed Ullah had so much hatred of not just Americans, but his fellow human beings shows the depths of the depravity and brainwashing that occurs when one embraces jihad,” Sexton said.
