These must be the right wing tea partiers that were accused of pulling this off earlier. Glad to see the 0bama regime is on top of things.

I say BS. But if it’s true, then it looks like Obama brought it on us by being mean to the Taliban.

Thank you Rooters! As much of a trainwreck as the UK seems to be, quite often their news sources are the only ones with credibility.

And liberals sigh in disappointment at the PMSDNC cable channel. They quickly drop the car bomb story and switch to detailed discussions of Michelle Obama’s summer wardrobe.

I heard earlier that there is a youtube video of the warning made on April 30th.

I read it and it looks like this administration ignored the warning signs, again.

Was it not earlier I read the “right wingers” were being accused of this car bomb because it was not as sophisticated as a Muslim bomb????

I hope everyone feels safer now that Obama the Muslim Communist is in charge.

Even prior to 911 the Taliban warned that something was coming.

Seems they are off the hook with their God as long as they give some sort of warning ahead of time.

They put the warning out a day earlier so they didn't know it would be a failure at that time. The claim today was meant more as a warning that despite the failure they are still there.

Why would you say BS? BTW, it is NOT BS, they pre-recorded the message(as per earlier articles on this subject)and posted it on you tube. They didn’t expect the bomb to fail. This was an act of terrorism, by USA based Taliban members, and definitely not done by “McVeigh” wanna bes as the news tried to infer(actually they came right out and said so).

They pre-recorded the message and posted it before the bomb was triggered. Pretty much proof that they did it. They didn't expect the bomb to fail. You are about the 500th person to ask that question between the 4 or so articles I have seen posted on the subject today, I guess none of you can actually read articles, only the headlines.

Now let's suppose they claimed it after the fact, the way you thought they did, they would still claim it as a warning that they are here and could do us damage.

The fact is, they are responsible and now the MSM will have to eat their frickin' theory that "white right wingers" set the bomb.

So if these people think it’s so great to become a martyr, why do they always want to avenge their friends who have achieved that status?

Hopefully there will be finger prints. Bet the bottom dollar forensics are looking for the odd one. Then use the information on the vehicle, they will be working overtime on this one. The best form of prevention is to catch this evil devil. DNA just a faint possibility. Who knows?

Catch the swine who ran off, and it is said there are security cameras in the area, watch for the libs and a bunch of lawyers though. Water boarding too good for him.

A serious “right wing” nut would have found a way to detonate her device during a pro-illegals march.

This CAN NOT be true?

MSNBC has already announced that American Right Wingers (and we clearly know they meant to implicate Tea Party members) were behind this failed attack!!!

Honestly we should boycott any and all things NBC as well as demand that our elected representatives use the the heavy hand of the Federal Government to censure NBC.

Because, after all, this is what 0bama would do.

I just read that there was another device that was found at the finish of the Pittsburgh Marathon, so that’s 2 terrorist attacks in the last few days.

Who’s to say that it was the 3rd with the first one being the oil rig in the Caribbean?

Of course, that type of theory would only come from the idea that the Muslim Terrorists are still at War with us and want to kill us all now more than ever.

Which is clearly NOT what any member of the Executive Branch is thinking.

Gee 0bama, I thought that you were going to change those who hated America into loving and trusting people we would all be singing kumbaya with?
