“I am. And I’m not afraid to say it. I’d certainly rather it be a Muslim whack job than a Christian whack job. Because whoever it is, its going to be politicized. But at this point, who knows.”

Odds are that the Marathon Bomber was a Muslim as the only white domestic terrorist bombers have been the Unibomber, Tim McVeigh, Erik Rudolph the Olympic Park Bomber and William Ayers. All the others have been Muslim.

Is today too late for Omoslem to drop a Hellfire on the perp?

They don’t rat out their jihad comrades that way, making life tougher on real Americans and happier for Obamatollah.

FOX reporting an arrest made too, and CBS on the radio here saying NO arrest has been made yet.

It would seem, for once, that they can't all be wrong.

No. Obama will pardon him and give him a czar position as an expert in bombs or cooking.

Newsmedia doesn’t appear to understand the federal system.

And people don't understand police scanners either, especially those who attempt to use them as sources for confirming information. They aren't official, so information people hear from them shouldn't be considered as confirmed.

2 possibilities:

They arrested a moslem but they’ve gotta keep him quiet so we don’t learn anything about his network so we cannot disrupt it.

OR

They broadcast “We’re about to go arrest somebody!” to spook the perps into fleeing their homes into the arms of SWAT waiting outside in a van. Safer for SWAT, and also a good indication of guilt.

As I failed to say in that post, but stated in others, the best odds are that the bomber was Muslim. I would put the odds at %75.

You would think so wouldn’t you. All the latest crime shows make it look like they can capture a portrait every second in real time if they want to.

In truth, if you’re wearing a cap, a wig, and looking down, I’m not sure they could identify you at all.

Perhaps if they can tie you to a vehicle, they could nail you down that way. Failing that, it seems like you could evade to a certain degree.

Still, you’ve got to have a real ‘get caught wish’ to try this stuff these days.

Is there any way to combine the arrest with hiring somebody to lead Obama’s “Commission on Moslem Outreach?”

In other words: “You have the right to remain silent, please choose a health plan and parking spot.”

CNN has backed off the arrest claim, and is now saying no arrest has been made. It is not even clear whether they have identified the person in the videos.

Orr said authorities have video of a man in a black jacket on a cell phone, wearing a gray hoodie and a white baseball cap backwards placing a black bag at the second bomb site outside of the Forum restaurant on Boylston Street and then leaving the area before that explosion.

Orr said the man was on the phone at the second bomb site when the first bomb exploded.

Orr said the FBI looked at time man was on his cell phone and then went back and scanned all the calls made in the area to track who they wanted to talk to. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2013/04/17/cnn-boston-marathon-bombings-suspect-identified-in-surveillance-video/

Local speculation on Seattle radio is that they do have him and are in process of charging him but was not supposed to be leaked and so was retracted.

Well...OK, they’ve got to have the facts straight so at the very least they don’t wind up looking like idiots.

But I am suspicious of the ideological motives of the group culture at CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, Al-Jazeera, Radio Havana, Gaza TV, etc. A bomber of color who is at war with Western civ doesn’t fit their template of what constitutes the greatest danger to society.

Thats just not true. We’ve had domestic terror incidents going back over 130 years. You’re only dealing with recent history.

That doesn’t sound very bright does it.

Using a phone to set off a device would certainly seem to be a big no no, if you don’t want your name on a list of people to check out.

Like you mention, even being on a phone at a sight would seem to cause you grief too.

It very well can be the case. I hear a reporter on the radio who was furious that someone in the government leaked out the info the authorities were looking for one person. Even a journalist on Fox was quite angry that the info was leaked to the public. Have to wait to see how the investigation goes now that there are so many conflicting reports.

He must have been addressing a different subject. Apparently Ch 4 neglected to run his remarks through the "mumbonics" translator.

“I don’t see that many bomb placements without a team”

Well said.

There is some interesting stuff coming out that is curious.

http://shoebat.com/2013/04/17/innocent-saudi-spotted-with-two-other-saudis-at-marathon/

http://www.infowars.com/navy-seals-spotted-at-boston-marathon-wearing-suspicious-backpacks/

http://imgur.com/a/sUrnA

My bet is that officials knew something was planned, but didn’t want to announce it. That there were government “minders” present to keep an eye on suspects (such as the “inocent Saudi national) and that one of them tackeled the suspicious Saudi national and turned him over to police until he was “cleared” by the Royal Saudi family.

It will be interesting to see what is spoon fed to the media and what some good reporters report on and ask questions about. This all could be the work of an individual, but it looks like there was “a team” bomb planters and lookouts and that would cause communications traffice that NSA would pick up and so there were “minders” present to monitor some of the “team.”

If I saw someone with a big bulky backpack like that, I would be wondering why they would bring such a big pack to lug around all day long. It would cause me to take note.

I will tell you that some of the photos that pop up after these events, cause me to ask question as well. I don’t know when those photos were taken, or at what event they were actually taken at.

The angle on those shots of back pack carriers in the crowd also cause me to wonder who took them. They seem to be shot from elevation. Are people taking photos from office windows? How do they know who to take photos of?

I don’t know, some of this stuff gets blurry for me. Other parts of it, not so much. If those seal guys were there and carrying back-packs, I’d like to know why.

Doesn’t really matter what their template is. Once the suspect is arrested, he is who he is. Of course, if its a Muslim, they’ll start with the “religion of peace” crap. If its a white male, then he’s instantly anti-government / homophobic / racist, and whatever else. But we already know that.

Regardless, they’re (CNN) already looking liked idiots for falsely reporting an arrest.
