The series of fires that were intentionally set on the campus of the University of St. Catherine in St. Paul this week appear to be the the work of a Muslim terrorist who had hoped to set off a bomb in retaliation for US policy in the Middle East.
According to the Minneapolis StarTribune report just breaking:
A 19-year-old former student at St. Catherine University allegedly set several fires across campus Wednesday in retaliation for U.S. military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan, according to charges filed Friday.
Tnuza J. Hassan, of Minneapolis, allegedly told police that “she wanted the school to burn to the ground and that her intent was to hurt people,” said one count of felony first-degree arson filed in Ramsey County District Court.
“Hassan said this was the same thing that happened in the ‘Muslim land’ and nobody cares if they get hurt, so why not do this?” the charge alleged. “…She told the police and fire investigators ‘You guys are lucky that I don’t know how to build a bomb because I would have done that.’ ”
