MSM Disappointed, Confused About Times Square Bomber

Via NewsBusters - a liberal reporter admits wishing that the bomber wouldn't have terrorist connections, then desperately tries to suggest alternative motives:

Contessa Brewer: "There was a part of me that was hoping this was not going to be anybody with ties to any kind of Islamic country...Were there failed family ties? Did he have a strong community network here in the United States? Did he feel isolated?"
And how about this CBS News headline: Faisal Shahzad's Motive Shrouded in Mystery

Yeah, this one's really hard to figure out - I have NO IDEA why a Pakistani who trained in a terrorist camp would attempt to set off a bomb in New York City!

Next up in the MSM playbook: Hand wringing and asking "Why do they hate us?!"
