The explosives used at the Boston Marathon were pressure cooker bombs. These were not particularly well built bombs. These bombs were first used in Afghanistan.

“First used in Afghanistan”...Hmmmm.
Widely used by insurgents in Afghanistan.
And Pakistan... Here we go...
Interesting - a pressure cooker would certainly hold in the pressure and allow a greater dispersion of the shrapnel than would just a piece of PVC. My thoughts tell me that the higher the internal pressure can build before the case breaks, the greater the dispersion of the shrapnel, and the greater the velocity.
No, no, no. Right winged, southern hicks do not use these type bombs. Has to be a bomb made out of used beer cans. Just has to be. Obama and his ilk will find some way to blame right wingers and not mention his religion of peace.
Who buys 2 pressure cookers? Should be pretty easy to track the source.
NEW DELHI: Terrorists in camps purportedly operating along the Baluchistan border between Pakistan and Afghanistan are being trained in making and exploding pressure cooker bombs, which were used in the Delhi blasts last year and at least in two explosions in Varanasi this past Tuesday.
During interrogation, Mohammad Ibrahim, who was arrested for his involvement in the Special Task Force office blast in Hyderabad in October last, allegedly disclosed that he along with several others from Hyderabad and Ahmedabad had been sent to the Baluchistan border camp via Bangladesh to undergo training in the handling of explosives, arms and ammunition.
The “course” also included the manufacturing of pressure cooker bombs fitted with clock-timer, similar to the one used in the improvised explosive device defused at Godolia in Varanasi on Tuesday.
News is saying it was timing device.....not cell phone activated.
Calling it a “guzzied up pipe bomb”!
Doesn’t matter how crude...140 people are injured and people died from this. Those who set this bomb could care less how it was made....it accomplished their intent.
Pressure cooker ban.... on the way.
I believe that is not the case, it appears that they were TATP (triacetone triperoxide) bombs.
Ban all pressure cookers! DiFi, draw up the legislation!
Interesting release from DHS in 2010 here:
Wonder if Zero thinks this is a terrorist attack or just some housewife disgruntled over taxes?
When pressure cookers are outlawed....only outlaws will have pressure cookers.
So, in a crowded sports event, there’s a pot with a timer ticking down and nobody notices?
If pressure cookers are outlawed, only outlaws will have pressure cookers.
So, in a crowded sports event, there's a pot inside a backpack, with an electronic timer that doesn't tick, and nobody notices?
Hey...you beat me to it!
A watched pot never boils....or explodes?
