SCANPIX, via Associated Press Deadly explosions shattered windows on Friday at the government headquarters in Oslo, which includes the prime minister’s office. A spokeswoman for Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg said he was safe. More Photos » The police said they did not know if the man, identified in the Norwegian press as Anders Behring Breivik, was part of a larger conspiracy. He is being questioned under the country’s terrorism laws and is cooperating with the investigation, they said.

“We are not sure whether he was alone or had help,” a police official, Roger Andresen, said at a televised press conference, adding: “What we know is that he is right-wing and a Christian fundamentalist.” So far Mr. Breivik has not been linked to any anti-jihadist groups, he said.

I’m not buying it. The leftist media tried to make Jared Loughner a “right-winger” too.

And it was nothing but a lie.

As they arrested three others on July 8 for what seems to be the same plot, and they had Al Qaeda connections, I would not count on it sticking.

Right. He listed his religion as “Christian” and his politics as “Conservative” on his Facebook page. Case closed.

In all fairness, the police searched the man’s residence after the incident. It’s entirely possible the police took hold of literature, media, and lilely his computer.

I really don’t think the Norwegian police are part of some vast conspiracy. Furthermore, the suspect is said to be cooperating.

The dust will settle in a few days, and then we’ll see.

He was anti Muslim. Norway was not prepared for this. The gunman pretended to be a policeman. A guard helped him and took him by a boat to the island. And then he helped him carry his bag (probably guns and ammo in it). No one did anything. The cops new there were explosives and did not want to enter the island. So the gunman was on the island in 90 minutes killing the kids.

It does prove the point that anyone with a gun can actually kill people. These movie plot terrorist plans can't hold a candle to someone with a gun. The beltway snipers, etc can shut down an entire region of the US.

This kind of thing, above all, is why we’re pretty much doomed. For now a single person can kill a few thousand. Eventually it’ll be a few million from a U235 lump.

So what type of “Christian Extremist” literature do you think they found? A Bible?

Sorry, I’ve been on this planet too long. And I’m not stupid enough to believe everything I hear from propagandists, particularly when it defies logic at every turn.

Yet they don’t explain how they “know” this.

From the article:

He was later identified as Anders Behring Breivik and characterized by officials as a right-wing extremist, citing previous writings including on his Facebook page.

A Facebook page matching his name and the photo given out by the police was set up just a few days ago. It listed his religion as Christian, politics as conservative. [...]
[I added the bold]
Also, note...
The acting police chief, Sveinung Sponheim, said the suspect’s Internet postings “suggest that he has some political traits directed toward the right, and anti-Muslim views, but if that was a motivation for the actual act remains to be seen.”

He said the suspect had also been seen in Oslo before the explosions. The police and other authorities declined to say what the suspect’s motivations might have been, but many speculated that the target was Mr. Stoltenberg’s liberal government.

I doubt he had any Christian motivations, but he probably had neo-nazi ones.

Norway should publically get him to talk and then torture him to death.

Everyone already knows this.

But common sense says this is all too convenient.

A Facebook Page couldn’t be faked or set up as cover?

I mean, honest to God, have we become this gullible?

He could have detailed plans in his apartment and give a full descriptive confession, and there would still be some here who would claim it was a Muslim bomber.

I have strong suspicion that the police have the right guy. False flag, perhaps? I dunno...seems less likely.

The western world really has to get its act together.

The economy and conflicts internally and externally are driving this stuff.

For someone to go off and kill so many kids 1st hand is something that is on par of Hitler level. I don’t like how they pushed Loughner away. They need to show them. They can have their say. And then they should be dealt with in a way (publically) that might disuade the next one. Problem is, most of them are suicidal.

Overall, this whole thing is.. A part of death and life.

Same as Columbine, the cops dawdled while waiting for “the right team” to arrive.

A couple of decades ago any available civilian would have taken care of the situation, today our “Professionals” wait for permission to do their jobs.

The more the average citizen is neutered, the bolder the nuts become, and the higher the body count.

It’s very hard to defend against an island kid camp and a bomb attack.

Say what you will, but this guy planned a well executed attack. I still find it hard to believe he got off the car attack and then the island attack alone.

But it’s possible that he did. If someone has some brains, a body count like this is possible.

That’s a leftist fantasy. The neo-nazis are confidential(very little groups) and they rarely(or never)made this kind of actions.

In addition,above all, right-wing parties are gaining big votes in the last elections(Finland, Sweden,Norway, Denmark...in eastern europe and probably western europe...)

I wonder if he listened to Ozzy Osbourne.

Or drank Limbaugh’s “Two If By Tea.”

In any case, I’m certain he’s a close follower of Palin. If he isn’t, they’ll put him in a Palin 2012 T-shirt for jailhouse photos.

Actually, a very small island like that should be easy to defend, so long as the need for defense is given due consideration.

What I was responding to is the reported ninety minute delay after law enforcement became aware of the island attack.

I do not know Norway’s emergency response structure, I would hope it is similar to Sweden, but would not presume so.

Ninety minutes is an eternity in such a situation, any country on earth should be able to summon a response faster than that.

From what I observe, the more “primitive” the society the faster their response to a similar attack would be.
In our overly “Civilized” society we have too many chiefs required to grant permission, hand out the weapons, coordinate the response, consult with lawyers, prepare the press release, etc.

In the “backward” regions a camp staffer would have just shot the SOB as soon as his intent became clear.
Or maybe one of the kids themselves, in some parts of the world that is still a possibility!

I suppose it’s theoretically possible he was enraged more by left wing domestic enablers than by the actual muzzie colonists.

Who would be shocked at one of ours, that went nut-up, going after a journalistic institution rather than an actual statist/collectivist institution?
