And I tell you what: Israeli Independence day was the day after.

Pressure cookers are available for use on a cooking range.

It is easier and quicker to use a pressure cooker than to manufacture a pipe bomb.

There is reference to pressure cookers being used this way in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

I can't wait till they catch the SOB's who did this.

Like Bengazi, I don't think we'll ever know. I believe it was a foreign attack, and that would make oboma look bad (especially if the guy was Saudi, because oboma gave them all a free pass to the U.S.).
So we'll never really know who did it. They'll dig up someone from somewhere who can't defend himself, convict him, and that will be the "official" story.

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?

There are probably millions of stove-top pressure cookers around. They are still being made, if I'm not mistaken.

Who knows why is happened, but it doesn’t seem likely that this would be tax/anti-government terrorism. People like that (Timothy McVey, for instance) seem to focus on government targets. Why target innocent civilians with such a clear anti-personnel weapon if you are mad at the government? Maybe this is a wacko, so trying to glean logic from the mind of a crazy person is pointless, but my gut tends to rule out anti-government groups/individuals.

Just saw one at Walmart recently, kinda spendy, plus its becoming a lost art pressure cooking. As far as a bomb casing it makes near perfect sense, you can seal it up, run any det wires through the pressure relief port, seal with silicone and then spray the exterior with a sanitizer.
Its just a casing, not a cooker, also a crude slow burning powder can be used. I work with high pressure hydraulics and have seen the destructive force upon a cylinder with just 200psi.

Yeah that’s what I’m thinking as well, but this is one hell of coincidence. Tax day? And in Boston? Yeah blowing up people in a race doesn’t make sense though..If he was trying to protest tax like the Boston tea party, why not blow up a ship or something? I hope they skin this prick alive either way, but thanks to liberals the most he will get is life with food, shelter, clothing, health and dental, Tv, college education. Makes me sick.

First of all, those aren’t all “drills”, some of them are simply training courses. For example, the one you link to for Sandy Hook. If you just click around the calendar, you’ll see that course is offered on multiple dates on that month, with other courses on other dates. There are 6 courses listed on weekdays for that month, so there was basically a 30% chance that any day Adam Lanza picked to attack, it would be a day that EMS was holding a training course. That is not extraordinarily coincidental, just a run of the mill coincidence.

“I thought Israel declared independence on May 14 (1948)?”

Jewish calendar makes it yesterday.

(Technically yesterday evening due to certain issues that are too long to discuss here.)
