Massive Explosions at Boston Marathon

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Let's ask someone who knows what the fuck they're talking about what they think.

“Where there’s information content in details like this are often more in cases where you have bombmakers who are making a lot of bombs,” Jackson said. “When they’re one-off incidents like this, you know, at least so far, fortunately, it’s sort of one puzzle piece. And it’s a puzzle piece that, because pressure cookers are something that is easy to get, it’s a puzzle piece that tells you a little bit, but, in this case, it doesn’t tell you a whole lot.”


Again - why don't you show some class for once, Ned? Or is your neo-crusader bloodlust too powerful to be restrained?

FBI and al Qaeda both "struggling" to identify culprit behind Boston Marathon bombing

Even if this was the work of a 'lone wolf', a claim by al Qaeda would probably have a big impact on the U.S., and most importantly, would encourage others to follow suit," urges one online jihadist.

But CBS News' analysis of prominent, credible jihadist web portals shows they are grappling for answers just as the FBI investigators are. Most recent terror attacks have been claimed by jihadist groups within about three days.

"The investigators are struggling with that question," explains [former assistant FBI director John} Miller, "as al Qaeda, on the other side of the world, is wondering 'was that us?'"

Henry uses Al Qaeda as a source of information.

Is anyone surprised?

No, Henry has a history of reviewing and sharing information from all sorts of different sources. This is what smart people do.

Now get thee back to Fox, fool.

Ned has ruled out girl scouts and nursing home knitting club members. That must leave al Queda as the only possible suspect.

Discussion of the one wounded victim singled out for treatment as a perp. Surprise! It's our innocent Saudi student, whom Leroy has now discarded as a suspect for "someone darker," but who had is apartment tossed and his roommate question for five hours when people just "connected the dots."

He did nothing of the sort. He linked to an interview with a former FBI director who mentioned Al Qaeda and who almost assuredly knows more about what he's talking about than you do.

You're really outdoing yourself with idiocy on this thread, Flan.

Is that any different than you hoping the bomber has a darker skin tone?

Unlike the left, I'm only hoping for justice. An 8 year old was murdered and his family destroyed.

Did you read the article, Ned? Did you comprehend it? If not: typical, and lame. If so: disingenuous, and even lamer.

People who actually want justice don't rush to judgement until all the facts are in.

"Unlike the left"....what a fucking crock of shit. Everyone wants the perp(s) caught and punished and it doesn't matter what color they are.
