Knife/Vehicle Attack at The Ohio State University … Many Injured, Somali-born Suspect Shot Dead … Looks Like Islamic Terrorism … Update: Suspect ID’d as Abdul Razak Ali Artan
LOOKS LIKE AN ISIS INSPIRED TERROR ATTACK AT OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY …
An active shooter alert issued at Ohio St. University … RUN, HIDE, FIGHT! Police are investigating a possible terror attack at The Ohio State University. A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday morning. The suspect was shot to death by a police officer before he could do more harm. Ohio State University police Chief Craig Stone said the assailant deliberately drove his small Honda over a curb outside an engineering classroom building and then began knifing people.
A Somali-born Ohio State University student plowed his car into a group of pedestrians on campus and then got out and began stabbing people with a butcher knife Monday before he was shot to death by a police officer. Police said they were investigating whether it was a terrorist attack.
Eleven people were hurt, one critically.
The attacker was identified as Abdul Razak Ali Artan. He was born in Somalia and was a legal permanent U.S. resident, according to a U.S. official who wasn’t authorized to discuss the case and spoke on the condition of anonymity. The FBI joined the investigation.
The details emerged after a morning of conflicting reports and confusion, created in part by a series of tweets from the university warning there was an “active shooter” on campus and students should “Run Hide Fight.” The warning was prompted by what turned out to be police gunfire.
Abdul Razak Ali Artan, 18, wrote on what appears to be his Facebook page that he had reached a “boiling point,” made a reference to “lone wolf attacks” and cited radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki.”
America! Stop interfering with other countries, especially Muslim Ummah [community]. We are not weak. We are not weak, remember that,” the post said.
UPDATE II: What do we know about Abdul Razak Ali Artan.
Artan, a student at OSU, was shot dead by a police officer after he plowed his vehicle into a crowd of people on campus and then started hacking people with a butcher knife, OSU Police Chief Craig Stone said. Ten people suffered non-life-threatening injuries and were transported to hospitals.
Speaking to CNN on Monday, one witness claimed the attacker was “completely silent” as he stabbed innocent people. The witness said Artan remained silent, “even when he was shot.”
“This was done on purpose,” Stone said.
Artan reportedly left Somalia with his family as a refugee and relocated to Pakistan in 2007. He then came to the United States in 2014 as a legal permanent resident, according to officials.
Police had yet to identify a motive in the attack, but law enforcement officials told NBC News that Artan posted a “rant” on social media beforehand.
The @OSUPolice confirm Officer Alan Horujko shot and killed the suspect, Abdul Razak Ali Artan, Monday morning.
Officer Alan Horujko is being hailed as a hero after firing the shot that killed a man who hit a group of pedestrians with his car on OSU’s campus before stabbing at the victims with a knife.
The emergency dispatch center got a call of a vehicle hitting a pedestrian at 9:52 a.m. and Horujko was able to respond shortly after.
Horujko engaged the suspect, now being identified as 18-year-old Abdul Razak Ali Artan, shot and killed him.
4. Community thanks for his quick reaction
Monica Moll said in a news conference that Horujko “did a fabulous job” in ending the threat quickly and effectively, according to a Tweet from Ohio State A&P.
The university’s Emergency Management department’s Facebook praised Horujko for his service, parents, students and other members of the community began speaking up.
Facebook user Meaghan Marie wrote in the comments of the post, “Thank you for your amazing service and quick response and stopping what could have been a much worse incident. Praying for all of the victims and those who still have to recover. You are an absolute hero!!”
Another user, Deb DeRossett Silvers commented: “My son is an OSU student who was close to the attack area. Thank you, so much, for the brave and heroic work you do and the quick action you took today. God bless.”
Barack Obama Has Tense Exchange With CNN’s Jake Tapper Over why he won’t say ‘radical Islamic terrorism’ After Asked By Gold Star Mom
HOW COULD AMERICA EVER ELECT A PRESIDENT TWICE THAT WAS SO WRONG ON TERRORISM …
Watch the video below and listen to Barack Obama’s twisted logic in answering the question as to why he does not use the term, ‘radical Islamic terrorism.’ It sounds more like he cares about not offending Muslims than he does identifying who our enemy is. By some how not saying radical Islamic terrorists that means that not all Muslimes are terrorists. Really? Actually, by stating our enemy is radical Islamic terrorists differentiates radical Islam from the rest of Islam. Then at the 5:50 mark of the video, Jake Tapper confronts Obama and it gets testy. The laugh line has to be when Obama says, I don’t want to interject partisan politics in this.” Are you kidding, that’s all Obama has done since he took office is to play partisan politics and divide this country.
The only thing Obama has unified anyone about was the bi-partisan over-ride of his veto on the 9-11 lawsuit bill.
President Barack Obama sparred with CNN host Jake Tapper on Wednesday night in a tense exchange over Obama’s refusal to use the phrase “radical Islamic terrorism.”
During a CNN town-hall event focusing on the US military, Gold Star mother Tina Houchins asked Obama why he wouldn’t use the term.
“The truth of the matter is that this is an issue that has been sort of manufactured, because there is no doubt, and I’ve said repeatedly that where we see terrorist organizations like Al Qaeda or ISIL, they have perverted and distorted and tried to claim the mantle of Islam for an excuse, for basically barbarism and death,” Obama said.
“These are people who kill children, kill Muslims, take sex slaves — there’s no religious rationale that would justify in any way any of the things that they do,” he added.
Obama later seemed to allude to Trump as he continued to answer Houchins’ question.
“I’ll just be honest with you: The dangers where we get loose in this language, particularly when a president or people aspiring to become president get loose with this language, you can see in some of the language that we use, in talking about Muslim-Americans here and the notion that somehow we’d start having religious tests in who can come in the country and who’s investigated and whether the Bill of Rights applies to them in the same way,” Obama said.
Trump has often said while campaigning that the US should administer some sort of test to immigrants to determine whether they have terrorist sympathies.
Tapper interjected to point out the allusion to Trump, and the exchange between him and Obama grew tense.
Here’s how it played out:
Tapper: Just to interject …
Tapper: You were clearly talking about the Republican nominee, Donald Trump, just then. You think his …
Obama: No, I wasn’t. But …
Tapper: You weren’t?
Obama: No, I …
Tapper: Well, you just said …
Obama: I would just say this, Jake, because …
Tapper: … aspiring to this office …
Obama: No, but it’s not unique to the Republican nominee. And again, I’m trying to be careful. We’re on a military base. I don’t want to insert partisan politics into this. I think that there have been a number of public figures where you start hearing commentary that is dangerous because what it starts doing is it starts dividing us up as Americans.

AMERICA, WE CANNOT CONTINUE HOW WE ARE DEALING WITH TERRORISM … THE US CANNOT AFFORD FOR MORE YEARS OF DOING NOTHING …
Donald Trump discusses the bombings that took place over the weekend on FOX and Friends. You know, it is a breath of fresh air to actually hear some one talk tough and truthful on terrorism. The below is a must watch video.
CNN has become nothing more than a political Super Pac for Hillary Clinton …
As Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers sink, Democrats and the liberal MSM have become more and more concerned. So much so that CNN willfully, purposely and falsely added the word “racially” to Donald Trump’s comments as he discussed on FOX News how Israel uses profiling to deal with terrorism and immigration. As seen in the screen shot below, CNN falsely added the it and even put it in quotes as if Trump really said the words. However, upon review of the transcripts and the video, Donald Trump never said any such thing. He said, “profiling”. But this is what a desperate MSM does who is in the tank for Hillary Clinton and sees her election chances slipping away. But of course there is no media bias or double standard. Shame on the MSM for not doing their jobs and vetting all candidates.
“You know in Israel, they profile They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”
CNN added the word “racial” to Donald Trump’s Monday comments on terrorism and immigration, and is running headlines reporting that the GOP nominee is advocating “racial profiling”.
But a review of the transcript of Trump’s comments to Fox News that CNN quoted, however, shows that Trump never put the word “racial” in front of “profiling.”
“You know in Israel, they profile,” Trump said Monday to Fox News. “They’ve done an unbelievable job — as good as you can do. But Israel has done an unbelievable job. And they’ll profile. They profile. They see somebody that’s suspicious. They will profile. They will take that person in. They will check out.”
Forward to the 3:00 mark for the actual comments Trump made.
In a later interview with Bill O’Reilly, Trump also expressed a need to profile in the manner Israel does, but again didn’t use the word “racial.” But when pressed by O’Reilly how it could be determined how a person could be deemed suspicious, Trump wouldn’t elaborate.
“It works. If we see somebody that we think could be a problem at airports and other places you talk to them and you see what’s going on. We don’t do that. Not much.”
CNN has been running headlines throughout the day that specifically quotes Trump as saying “racial profiling” and the Fox News excerpts the network sent out Monday evening also framed his quotes as responses to questions about “racial profiling.”
The Daily Caller references other examples where CNN did some selective editing to help Hillary.
