It wasn't a "white middle aged male" who "doesn't like the health care bill"

The original reports were that the Times Square terrorist was a "white middle aged male" who "doesn't like the health care bill".

In the words of NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg:

Bloomberg later told CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric that the suspect behind the bombing attempt could be a domestic terrorist angry at the government who acted alone.

"If I had to guess 25 cents, this would be exactly that. Homegrown, or maybe a mentally deranged person, or somebody with a political agenda that doesn't like the health care bill or something. It could be anything," he said.

Our leaders are desperate to blame non existent terror plots by conservative middle aged white males, and equally desperate to dismiss discussion of the real sources of terrorism as "racial profiling". Why?
