Oslo Explosion: Blast Result of Massive Vehicle Bomb, Sources Say
ABC News ^ | July22,2011 | BRIAN ROSS

Posted on 07/22/2011 8:19:22 AM PDT by Hojczyk

The explosion that rocked a Norwegian government building today was result of a massive vehicle bomb, according to U.S. government sources on the scene.

Norwegian news reported one person died and several were injured in the apparent attack. The prime minister, whose office is in the building, survived the blast, a government spokesperson told The Associated Press.

Pictures, posted on Twitter, show several buildings with windows blown out. Multiple tweets described people bleeding in the streets.

No group has publicly taken responsibility for the blast and a U.S. counter-terrorism official said there is no indication yet of motive or suspects. A senior U.S. diplomat in Oslo said they believe all U.S. personnel in the country are safe and accounted for.

That was fantastic the way West handled that guy from CAIR. Truly refreshing, and right on. Never thought I see the day when any politician would come back at them like that. Don’t think CAIR did either!

Maybe it was Tea Partiers upset over the ObamaCare bill.

Just as MAYOR BLOOMBERG (AKA JIHADBERG) predicted with the Times Square car bomb..... oh, but that one turned out to be a dirty moslem.

I doubt we’ll find any similarity this time.

Obviously it’s in response to Norway’s military presence in the Middle East, right?

Possibly.

wiki: Norwegian forces in Afghanistan consist of one mechanized company and one support squadron from Telemark Bataljon, and one ISTAR-squadron from the Intelligence Battalion, all serving with ISAF forces in Kabul.

Maybe now the Scandinavian countries will stop their coddling of muslims.

Malmo, Sweden is about to go > 50% Muslim. It's a little late to do much about it in Sweden. A few decades ago that figure couldn't have been more than a few percent.

The problem with Bloomberg is that he hates white Christians.

Typical.

Hey - watch it. We presbyterians would have to form a steering committee, a study group, present 20 options, meet every Thursday night for two years, and then set off the bomb.

Well then, good hunting to them. I hope they find who did this, and deal appropriately.
