Posted on 04/16/2013 11:18:43 AM PDT by Nachum
A series of Twitter gloats today raised questions about the possible involvement of Somali terror group Al-Shabaab in the Boston Marathon bombing.
No person or group has yet directly taken responsibility for the attack that killed three and wounded 176, 17 of those critically. The FBI issued a be-on-the-lookout for a dark-skinned or black man in dark clothes, perhaps with a foreign accent, who tried to enter a restricted area moments before the first blast. Authorities were also questioning a Saudi national here on a student visa and searched an apartment in Revere, Mass., last night.
Terror groups have shown a fondness for Twitter in recent years, and last night al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabaab posted three tweets around 2 a.m. Eastern time:

I can't wait till they catch the SOB's who did this. Hope they waterboard them every day. Every hour.
If a Somali terror group is responsible, can we deport all Somali immigrants back to Somalia? If we can save only one American life, it will be worth it. That’s what the Left says.
Department of Homeland Security was concerned enough about pressure cooker bombs to issue an alert to federal and state security officials: A technique commonly taught in Afghan terrorist training camps is the use/conversion of pressure cookers into IEDs,
Just heard on FOX, Saudi officially ruled out as a suspect.
I tell you, this is looking a LOT like somebody who was protesting taxes. 1773 - The Boston tea party protest....Yesterday was tax day. Maaaaan, I hope that is not the case. That would be one hell of a strange coincidence if it isn’t. Tax day? April 15th? And it happens in Boston? God almightly, it that is the case the left and the communist propaganda machine posing as our media will amp up their trashing the Tea party a million percent. On the other hand it could have been some leftists wanting to make it look like something tea party related. Now THAT would be something if that is found to be the case.
The Boston Marathon was the lowest hanging fruit as far as ease of penetrating a sporting event. Whoever did this likely had limited resources, so took the opportunity to hit the easiest target.
Yeah but it could have been some psycho, another McVeigh.
This was Islamic terrorists.
Obama is still on the list.
Pressure Cookers are usually plug ins. In fact, I’ve not seen a battery operated one. How does this work without a plug in recipticle? Do they have battery operated pressure cookers?
Of course he was. Oboma opened the American door - wide open - for the Saudis. There's no way the oboma administration would ever convict a Saudi. It would make oboma look really, really bad.
They're going to have to create another villain (like they did for Sandra Levy).
Panetta Details Steps Needed to End al-Qaeda Threat
by Cheryl Pellerin, American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Nov 21, 2012
Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said:
... In Somalia, against the militant group al-Shaabab, progress also has been made, the secretary said, in large part because of an effective partnership between the United States and the African Union Mission in Somalia.

Someone would have to be a moron with a single digit IQ to believe it’s a member of the Tea Party.
That is the more likely scenario. All one has to do is pull the video of the Tea Party march on Washington to know the TP wouldn't think of doing this. The TP consists of grannies, veterans, small business owners, football and soccer moms. A lot of older women with their straw hats. Just a bunch of people who were opposed to obamacare and high taxes. Real Americans. To look at the Tea Party members and view them as threatening is a joke.
It shouldn’t have been an easy target. DHS was all over the Fish Line area. Trash cans should not have been there. It could just as easily been an Occupier who wanted to punish evil corporate sponsor John Hancock Financial. The bombs also went off long after the Elite Runners from Africa passed the Finish Line. What Racist would let them get by safely?
I have also never heard of a battery powered pressure cooker. My sister has one to cook rice, it has to be plugged into the wall
Timothy McVeigh had links to middle east terror networks. And he was a Democrat, the son of a union goon. Like father, like son.
Being anti-government is not the sole criteria for Conservatism. A genuine terrorist, Bill Ayers, fits that profile and he's an Obama-supporting Democrat. The pro-God, pro-life core that defines Conservatism is such that those on the right simply do not engage in the murderous acts of terrorism.
