Poor, poor would-be terrorist--his house was foreclosed on.  Though the AP speculates this may have driven Faisal Shahzad to plant a bomb in NYC's Times Square, MSNBC's Chris Matthews takes lunacy to a new level in suggesting the country should worry about future terrorist attacks because they might strengthen the resolve of the tea party movement:

ROBERT BAER, FORMER CIA FIELD OFFICER: But what I'm really afraid, Chris, is the next time one of these guys are going to get through. And what's it gonna do to this country? It's gonna rip it apart. Because people are gonna be looking for quick, immediate answers.


BAER: You know, they're gonna, they're gonna look, you know, crack down on, you know, who knows where it's gonna to end up? You're gonna see the Tea Party being, you know, being strengthened. You're gonna see people blaming the White House for a situation it didn't create. 


BAER: It could affect the, you know it could affect the United States for a long time. Look, it got us into a war in Iraq we didn't need to be in...

MATTHEWS: Yeah, well I agree.
