Boston Marathon Bombing: FBI Searches Apartment; Motive, Suspect Unclear
CBS DC ^ | 4-16-2013

Posted on 04/16/2013 3:45:16 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

BOSTON (CBSDC/AP) — The bombs that blew up seconds apart at the finish line of one of the world’s most storied races left the streets spattered with blood and glass, three dead, including an 8-year-old boy, more than 140 wounded and gaping questions of who chose to attack at the Boston Marathon and why.

Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsibility for the bombings one of the city’s most famous civic holidays, Patriots Day. But the blasts among the throngs of spectators raised fears of a terrorist attack.

President Barack Obama was careful not to use the words “terror” or “terrorism” as he spoke at the White House Monday after the deadly bombings, but an administration official said the bombings were being treated as an act of terrorism.

(snip)The Pakistani Taliban, which has threatened attacks in the United States because of its support for the Pakistani government, on Tuesday denied any role in the marathon bombings.

The group’s spokesman, Ahsanullah Ahsan, denied involvement in a telephone call with The Associated Press. He spoke from an undisclosed location.

The FBI took charge of the investigation into the bombings, serving a warrant late Monday on a home in suburban Boston and appealing for any video, audio and still images taken by marathon spectators.

The fiery explosions took place about 10 seconds and about 100 yards apart, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending dense plumes of smoke rising over the street and through the fluttering national flags lining the route.

Obama, the undocumented terrorist supporter, did not call this a terrorist's jihad for a reason.

He is one of them and protects them.

...Odungo won’t say the word terrorist. Although word comes from the WH, others are allowed, not the little boy king. He’s got to stick to the agreement had made while going on his “we’re to blame tour” when first elected. The bowing tour.

He just does a running edit while he makes these pronouncements. The unedited version is “those will be brought to justice if their apprehension aids any of my political positions.

I don’t normally carry but I think I may do so the next couple of weeks, matter of fact I need a more comfortable holster for that compact 1911 looking .380 I do carry that is small enough to fit in my pants pocket.

God knows if I ever may at a scene of a terrorist event but if it should happen I know when seconds count the police and FBI will be minutes away.

I swear...these morons are so dense or willfully blind that they are ignoring the fact that this is the hallmark of a typical Al Qaeda strike...coordinated bombings at a high-profile public venue, designed to inflict as many horrific injuries and deaths as possible.

Jeez.

Baloney. Sheik Obomba was careful to read the words that were written for him that appeared on his teleprompter.

Yup, and a typical Al Qaeda trademark is the shrapnel/bearings in the explosives.

Yes. I agree with you.

But the Saudi with burns in hospital may be red herring. Just because, he is ‘so obvious’.

Whoever 'planned' these multiple devices probably also had an 'innocent plant', or it may be simply pure chance that the guy was there.

The burns are suspicious, though. If he was injured by blast or shrapnel, that would be one thing. How did he get burned?

Explosives that are ignited but don't detonate will burn fiercely.

I thought yesterday I heard some victims also had severe burn marks, but not sure about if the doctor(s) also described shrapnel wounds.

I am not saying the Saudi is innocent, he is the current lead so far.

But there was a report of a guy with two backpacks, and some Aussie news said CCTV caught him dropping one backpack into trash bin. So far we have no follow up on that.

There is very little real information coming out of the American media. The UK Daily News seems to have the most details. They’ve been saying since last evening that the police are seeking a dark-skinned male who was wearing a hoodie, and who had been denied entry into a secure area shortly before the blasts.

Let's say the Jihadists admitted it, blamed Obama and sent their demands to the White House and MSM.

We would never ever know...

So true.

American public FIRST AND FOREMOST need to be ‘carefully taught’.

70% of Boston voted for him and would vote for him today so they got what they voted for.

Pray for America to Wake Up

We won’t. This is not the America that won a two front world war. We have too many here that are not Americans. The red-blooded Americans have been cat-called into submission by labeling us extremist or radical in the same lines of our enemy. I’ll say it, we are at war with all most all non-Americans at this point. By non-American I mean anyone not born in this country of parents who were not here at least one generation. Most of the foreigners here have no allegiance to America and don’t care about becoming Americans. They are here for two reasons: subvert us to defeat us or make us just like the toilet they left and to take make a buck. They do not have any sense of patriotic pride. Can you imagine this happening back in the 1930’s to the 50’s? The outcry would have been deafening. For the last 30+ odd years we have been inundated with false propaganda how we are imperialist and it is time that we felt the pain. Until we get our mind rights and shut our border and actually openly kill the people and their fellow countrymen with extreme prejudice we will fall.

Our leaders have done a masterful job of putting us in a position of debt that influences our security decision because we dare not insult anyone holding our debt. I have a radical idea, let’s just default on all our debt and start over? Won’t happen but I am at the point it would be in our best interest to be ostracized by the rest of the world.

There are those tepid pudnits saying “they attacked innocents people and children...” in the mind of our enemies THERE ARE NO INNOCENTS. Face the facts, we have bombed there people and children. We are at war. We are at war with the world and all this one world we can all be one happy family bulls_it rhetoric will be our unraveling. The time to act may have passed and even if it hasn’t we won’t. The powers and the press in this country have an agenda set and nothing will stop them until we are the same cesspool that makes up the rest of the world.

Don’t worry—if Muslims were behind the bombs (which seems likely), then the media and the White House will find a way to blame it on Bush. If only Bush hadn’t invaded Iraq, they’d all love America.

I am sorry but if you are mad at taxes and want to make a statement you do not blow up other slaves to the tax system you blow up an IRS or some other government building(McVeigh, plane flown into IRS building)........... Crazies and muslims blow up innocent people(too many examples to even list).

It's maddening to me that focus is placed on "...why..." these terrorists murder.

Why? So we can "understand" them or change our Christian ways or support for Israel?

I don't care the "why", I want them gone.
