Boston conspiracy theories

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

Boston conspiracy theories

Postby Shorty » Fri Apr 19, 2013 9:00 pm

The "Massive Explosions" thread is massively long so I'm starting a new one for this. There will probably be many conspiracy theories about the marathon bombing. Here is the first one I've seen. The suspects' mother apparently is saying it's a setup by the FBI.

Mother Of Boston Bombing Suspects Says FBI Was In Contact With Her Son For Years
http://www.minds.com/blog/view/53964/mo ... -for-years

"He was controlled by the FBI, like for three, five years," she said. "They knew what my son was doing, they knew what actions and what sites on the Internet he was going [to], they used to come...and talk to me...they were telling me that he was really a serious leader and they were afraid of him." "How could this happen?...They were controlling every step of him, and they are telling today that this is a terrorist attack," she added.

Yeah, the father says the same thing, assuming this video is correct. I speak English, a little Japanese, and profane: Russian isn't one of my languages.

What do you think, Hen -- Tsarnaev is a suspected criminal or an enemy combatant?

This is a lie. Did you read the article you link to, Hen V? I think not.

What do you think the headline mean? The Saudi connection linking the Boston Marathon to September 11

Haaretz blames the official Saudi version of Islam, the Wahhabism sect.

If you read the article, you'll see that the writer/analyst, Ksenia Svetlova, attempts to draw a connection between "foreign terrorists seeking to sow destruction and death" and Wahhabism, which originated in Saudi Arabia.

Your "headline", Hen V: "Israeli press blames the Saudis", attempts to smear the Israeli press as maligning "the Saudis".

Why did you do that, Hen V? Is it, as I suspect, because you hate Israel and because you are a liar?

The Saudi royal theocracy gives Wahhabism the force of (Sharia) law. Are you that unaware?

Why didn't you just copy and paste the Haaretz headline word for word?: The Saudi connection linking the Boston Marathon to September 11

Instead, you dishonestly spun it as: Israeli press blames the Saudis

How many of the Sept. 11 hijackers were Saudis?

"The hijackers in the September 11 attacks were 19 men affiliated with al-Qaeda, and 15 of the 19 were citizens of Saudi Arabia."

Good question. And where does he get all those animated GIFs?

And your point is - what - that the Tsarnaev brothers had "trusted traveler" status?
