Posted on 04/26/2013 8:19:49 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Megyn Kelly reported Friday that the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attacks had to be detonated via a line of sight trigger mechanism. According to federal officials this could mean there was a 3rd bomber or accomplice who may have been involved in the attacks. The range of remote control parts is within at least 250 yards or less. The remote control parts are also NOT a part of Al Qaedas Inspire magazine instructions.
Federal investigators now believe a third terrorist could have been involved in the attacks.

Its just too bad Barack Obama already Mirandized the young surviving Tsarnaev brother.....

So then they are avaiable pretty much anywhere.
At Darian or thereabouts? I haven’t heard about that since the initial reports. About that same time there were some tourists questioned at Niagara Falls.
Whew!! Holder just got there in time with the lawyers and Miranda instructions. The still living bomber might have implicated the First Lady’s Saudi friend if the questioning had gone on even ten more minutes.
Not exactly correct. If it was 2.4GHz, or higher, it would more than likely have to be LOS. Wifi has a pretty high data rate, but degrades quickly when LOS is lost.
Something low frequency, like 27 or 49 Mhz, would be capable of more than LOS, but 49 is getting up there in terms of becoming more LOS dependent (near HAM 6m band).
Wifi can only hit its highest rating at a short distance, LOS, and no obstructions. Wifi is 2.4GHZ and the 5.8GHz bands. THe only reason it works at longer distances is good error protection protocols, and encoding rate reductions as the ends detect degradation in the data quality.
Many remote cars nowadays are 2.4GHz. Only recently did I buy a toy that still used 27MHz, but it’s a recharger large sized helicopter.
Penelopesire and I had an OT conversation on another thread. She was thinking out loud about that very thing, asking: "I wonder if a triggering mechanism could have burned his hands?? "
I replied, "I have not a clue, but I do not recall any of the other wounded people having what these detectives identified as "burns.""
Our exchange caused me to search for more information about the BURNS because, after April 16th, later reports only refer to shrapnel wounds in the leg.
Below is the info I found. Posting it here because it may be of more value here since it really was OT on the other thread.
Reports from CBS reporter John Miller
"As everybody's kind of standing in shock, three Boston PD detectives see this guy moving quickly out of the crowd...
They think he may be injured, but it turns out that most of that [blood] is from other people. But he does have burns on his hands," said Miller."
[April 16, 2013] Sources: Injured Saudi man not a suspect in Boston attacks
" He was being questioned by the FBI in a Boston hospital, where he was being treated for burns to his hands....
The man, who officials are not calling a suspect or a person of interest at this stage, was seen running from the scene of one of the explosions and was tackled by a member of the public and turned over to police."
[April 16, 2013] Boston Marathon bombs: The world reacts
However, we can't consider this as a confirmation because article is sourcing the same reporter without directly quoting him.
Hmmm....Found more detail from John Miller (according to Hot Air):
"But the pattern of his burns mainly on his hands, Miller says has investigators wondering what he was doing at the time of the blast."
CBS: FBI, BPD very interested in Saudi national
Two other sources!
Salon transcript from a C-SPAN interview with Steve Emerson:
EMERSON: I have been given privy to certain classified information.....the burns on his skin match the explosive residue of the bomb that exploded.
Salon goes on to trash Emerson, saying he had to retract, but if you watch the video, Emerson's only "retraction" is to say the Saudi has been cleared.
"Saudi official at the countrys embassy in Washington. The embassy official... spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the preliminary nature of the information.
He declined to identify the young man, but said he sustained serious burn injuries."
Source [not dated but obviously early]
FYI: I'm using "saudinationalburns" to keyword this info.
Also of possible interest from the Debka article in this thread:
On April 17,  Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal...handed a high-value dossier from confidential files in Riyadh containing data on clandestine Saudi terrorist cells in the Boston area.
I wonder about where this originated. Who is the “ According to federal officials...”? Is it another leaker from within, or have they decided they’ll need a more elaborate scenario to make the Dumb and Dumber brothers look more believable? Or is someone getting anxious about all the attention on al-haribi (Sp?) so they’re throwing this out to distract?
“The bombs were reportedly triggered with model car remote controllers. Those have a range of hundreds of feet and do not require line of sight. They are radio-based, not optical.”
But we are talking about a big city street. A corridor of buildings. Plus the receiver/transmitter is on the ground. And they likely used a very low cost radio system. I think the useful range in this case is probably short and line of sight. It wouldn’t be, if used in an open field, though.
What source (besides Megan Kelly) says the bombs “HAD” to be detonated via a line of sight trigger mechanism?
So just where on that street was Ali Alharbi at ? are there witnesses who can say just where he was at during all of this ?
You don’t say...
“Alhaarbi be the financer?”
I surmised that also. He could have provided the money. And was young (dumb)and wanted to see the action.
please add me to the new ping, thanks
I was not so interested in family at first but you and others were right to keep looking at them for sure!
What a family!! No wonder most Muslim terrorists don’t mind if they die in attacks.....with mothers like that!! Can you imagine?
Told you the Media wouldn't cover this story...
Has ANYONE spoken to the woman carrying the balloons walking right behind the two Chechens right before the explosions? ... balloons can be seen rising to the left and behind one of the bomb sites.
Please add me to you Boston Bombing ping list, too.
