SCANPIX, via Associated Press Deadly explosions shattered windows on Friday at the government headquarters in Oslo, which includes the prime ministers 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 countrys 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.

Which is why I’m ignoring his facebook and only looking at his zillions of posts on document.no. They’re in Norwegian (but google translate is amazing) but the media is obviously going to obsess about Facebook and not bother wading through the document.no posts.
A sad, horror story. Shows to me the need for us to be armed.
Norwegian news reports that only 3 tons remain at the farm:
You can ask MM about her source of that info, I just copied MM’s comment.
You've already posted this over 30 times in the last 24 hours. We get it. You're buying the media meme hook, line and sinker.
Except the part about him posting on a neo-Nazi terrorist website. You're not buying into that part at all. I wonder why.
Mesta, your thoughts are my thoughts. I normally cannot express, my thoughts, clearly. You have. Thank You!
Oh I certainly agree Mesta....additionally even Democrates here in the US have allied with Muslims, though I believe they are under seriousy blindness to the fact they aren't leading the Muslims as they think...rather Muslims are "allowing" them to think as they might just to stay and retain their positions.....a holding pattern, if you will.
Hope so. But I don’t know what is happening. He seems to be a right wring guy. I am listening to Norwegian breaking news for hours. All the newspapers are reporting this it is horrific anyway. But it seems the motive was right wring related. 80 Kids died and this is the perp, am I not allowed to be scared?.
Combine that with the UN’s overtures about applying International gun law at the national level.
Just wait for the jackass to chime in.
I agree. But it will be used by the enemie of freedom as one more stock talking point against gun freedom. It will also be used by the TSA/DHS as an excuse for more random searches of all people.
I'm still very unconvinced one guy could accomplish all that's been done without being detected. You need a network, support and cover to pull these things off. The same individual trying to accomplish all these tasks from procurement, to assembly, to placement all without detection and then execution so flawlessly would be nearly impossible.
I'm glad he's still alive. I just hope that he and this investigation are handled in a competent manner.
This reminds me of an incident that happened in NYC about 20 yrs ago. Badlands, a notorious gay bar in the West Village was shot up by some nutcasae. About 10 people were injured, miraculously no one was killed. The media went into a feeding frenzy when it was revealed the suspect was the son of an NYPD chaplain. That is until his mug shot was released and it turned out to be a Black guy. All of a sudden it was “nothing to see here, move on”.
Sometimes the truth does see the light of day, though sometimes the truth has to wait till be following day.
Well said, and a rational voice on a day when such is in short supply.
I remember a largely forgotten case in the middle of the 20th century where a deranged individual saved up or created explosives and attacked a school with severe casualties. It also combined elements of insanity and long-term planning. Rare, but it happens.
Well therein is your problem with understanding what's really going on. MSM is feeding your brain, FOR HOURS, and your sucking it right down.
You really need to look at what Freepers are writing about....they too have sources...often far more reliable than the MSM.
I google mapped it and those were the options it gave me, a small island in the north, along the west coast of Norway. That seemed impossible to me, but with the media one can never know. Facts are changed, lies are told, facts are omitted, lies are given as facts...
Thanks for clearing this up.

Funny you should mention that.
I was thinking of it earlier, and the very underreported large brain tumor the shooter had.
Not known about the first day, rarely mentioned since being discovered.
I wonder, does this monster also have a medical condition?
