Apparently, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman has never heard of the Boston Marathon bombing, the shoe bomber, the underwear bomber, the D.C. snipers, etc.

New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman recently tweeted the following question:

“Other than San Bernardino shootings, has there been a terrorist attack involving a non-US-born attacker since 9/11?”

I usually say that asking questions is a good thing, because I am very much in favor of curiosity and learning.

However, for a New York Times reporter to ask such a question in the year 2017 is actually a bad thing, not a good thing. For this person with this job to ask this question in this year proves that this New York Times reporter is completely clueless as to what has been happening in this country for the past decade and a half, and thus, is not qualified to hold the job of a New York Times reporter.

For the record, here are some terrorist attacks that happened in the U.S. after the 9-11 attacks, and involved at least one perpetrator who was an immigrant:
