I’ve heard of the war on Christmas but this is ridiculous.

Mohamed Osman Mohamud, 19, a Somali-born U.S. citizen, was arrested 18 minutes before a Christmas tree lighting was to occur, a ceremony attended by thousands of Oregonians.

It seems the FBI was onto this guy for a while and thwarted the bomb plot at the tree lighting at Pioneer Courthouse Square on Friday night.

Gateway Pundit has the details.
