Ray Kelly and even Michael Bloomberg must know that no Muslim, not even a wannabe Muslim, would dress like that.
That was the get-up of a street thug or a would-be rap artist.
If it weren't for the fact that they're being typed as bombers and haters, Muslims around the city would be laughing hysterically.
Reports are that Williams and his fellow jihadis (a term used so loosely here that it drips out of the hands) were offered money and drugs to go along with a terror plot hatched by a police/FBI plant.
It is hard to imagine a case more smelling of entrapment.
And it's hard to think of mopes easier to entrap than these four men, whose loving family members describe them as stupid beyond words.
Here I am -- one whose mom worked in the World Trade Center, one who seethed with unaccustomed , almost uncontainable anger on September 11th -- thinking of these arrests as a sad, pitiful joke.
So the question arises, was Bloomberg perhaps smirking under that serious expression as he announced the breaking of the terror scheme?
In truth, I doubt it.
Was he (along with cohort Kelly) playing a program that could help in this run-up to the mayoral election?
I can't lower myself to say yes, but I can ask the question.
