    Gateway Pundit ^ | April 17, 2013 | Jim Hoft
    As the investigation continues in Boston on the marathon bombings this week it is important to remember this— Odds Are the Boston Marathon bomber is either an Islamic terrorist or left-wing extremist. Since 9-11 committed Islamists have carried out more than 20,712 successful deadly terror attacks. The Religion of Peace has been tracking these deadly Islamist attacks. But, if the terrorist is not an Islamist, he is most likely a left-wing extremist. The FBI arrested 5 #Occupy Cleveland protesters for plotting to blow up the Cuyahoga Valley National Park Bridge in May. The terrorists repeatedly tried to blow up the...

You probably also know that in the wake of the attack,  a Saudi by the name of 'Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi' was hospitalized and became a ‘suspect’, only to be promptly downgraded to a mere ‘person of interest’ (pressure from Beantown's Dem mayor/senator/governor/US president?).  The 20-y.o. student has been searched by the FBI and Boston Police, yet no confirmation has been given so far to his involvement.  Yet the lib MSM media -along with trolls on...

    Steve Emerson just broke the shocking news that the Saudi National, Abdul al-Harbi, first questioned in the Boston bombing, is going to be deported on "national security grounds." He is from a very powerful Saudi family with many terrorist ties. Abdul al-Harbi is a devout Muslim from Medina. I said it takes longer than 15 hours to investigate all of Abdul al-Harbi's relatives, friends, acquaintances, and business and school friends. Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbi’s clan are steeped...

    A couple of weeks ago we warned America about the very serious problem of Saudi infiltration; many of these Saudi nationals criminals and terrorists. After the bombings, a Saudi by the name of Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi was hospitalized and became a ‘suspect’, then a ‘person of interest’. His apartment was searched by federal and local authorities. No confirmation has been given so far to his involvement. The Media were quick to claim his innocence, of course. This brings us to the Boston marathon bombings. Foreign Policy is reporting that he’s ‘no longer a person of interest’, which means he’s...

Let's get up to speed with where things stand right now. What do we know about the bombs? The first bomb went off at 2:50 p.m., a few feet short of the finish line, in front of a sporting goods store and a LensCrafters. The second went off 12 seconds later, about a block further up Boylston Street, which serves as the home stretch of the marathon. You can see the blast locations on the map...

    Pressure cookers – possibly activated remotely by a cellphone – are believed to have been used to make the crude bombs that sent deadly shrapnel hurling into a crowd of onlookers and competitors at Monday’s Boston Marathon, experts told Fox News. Doctors treating some of the 176 injured victims believe the explosives were packed with deadly shrapnel, including pellets, nails and sharp metallic objects – with some patients having “40 or more” such fragments embedded in their bodies. “Many of them have severe wounds mostly in the lower part of their body – wounds related to the blast effect of...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama pronounced the deadly Boston Marathon explosions an act of terrorism on Tuesday as individuals close to the investigation said the two bombs were made of pressure cookers packed with ball bearings and metal shards that cut into the victims. Speaking at the White House, Obama said investigators do not know if the attack was carried out by an international or domestic organization, or perhaps by a "malevolent individual." Three people were killed, including an 8 year-old boy, and more than 170 were wounded. In his second public statement in less than 24 hours since...

    A series of Twitter gloats today raised questions about the possible involvement of Somali terror group Al-Shabaab in the Boston Marathon bombing. No person or group has yet directly taken responsibility for the attack that killed three and wounded 176, 17 of those critically. The FBI issued a be-on-the-lookout for a dark-skinned or black man in dark clothes, perhaps with a foreign accent, who tried to enter a restricted area moments before the first blast. Authorities were also questioning a Saudi national here on a student visa and searched an apartment in Revere, Mass., last night. Terror groups have shown...

This afternoon, Police Commissioner Edward Davis said a preliminary investigation indicated that the JFK incident may not have been an explosion. The fire broke out shortly before 3 p.m. — around the same time as the Marathon blasts several miles away — in an HVAC system in a section of the complex opened in 2011 that houses offices, a classroom, and...

    Democrats, including Hoyer, today blamed the Boston Marathon bombings on the Republicans.

Took then just 24 hours to blame conservatives for the lives and limbs lost. I am no fan of the Democrats, but this lowers the level of their loathsomeness to a new bottom.

    BOSTON (CBSDC/AP) — The bombs that blew up seconds apart at the finish line of one of the world’s most storied races left the streets spattered with blood and glass, three dead, including an 8-year-old boy, more than 140 wounded and gaping questions of who chose to attack at the Boston Marathon and why. Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsibility for the bombings one of the city’s most famous civic holidays, Patriots Day. But the blasts among the throngs of spectators raised fears of a terrorist attack. President Barack Obama was careful not to use the words “terror”...

    Only two explosive devices were involved in an “act of cowardice” that left at least 176 people injured and three dead near the finish line of the 117th Boston Marathon yesterday, city officials said today. “Make no mistake, an act of cowardice and of this severity can not be justified or explained; it can only be answered,” Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel Conley said during a press conference at the Westin Copley Plaza Hotel today. “The loss we’ve suffered is enormous.” Authorities said the explosions were caused by two devices. No unexploded devices were found, Gov. Deval Patrick said. Other...

    ThE PERPETRATOR or perpetrators behind the two bombs that exploded within a few seconds of each other near the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon are still unknown. But there are working theories. Terrorists often plan their strikes on anniversaries and commemorative dates. Yesterday marked both a patriotic holiday in Massachusetts and Israel Independence Day, which raises the possibility of Islamic terrorism. April 15 is also the deadline for filing federal taxes, which suggests the possibility of homegrown, anti-tax extremists. The pathological possibilities abound at this point. The Marathon is an uplifting event. It is also a made-for-terrorism event....

Individual seen walking on roof directly overhead as bomb goes off at Boston Marathon A picture posted on Twitter shows an individual walking on the roof directly overlooking one of the blasts at the Boston Marathon. The picture of the mystery person was posted shortly after the terror attack and raises the eerily possibility that one of the perpetrators watched as the carnage was unleashed.

It is also possible that they may not be. As of this writing on Monday evening, those who know – the perpetrators and their accomplices, and possibly law enforcement officials — aren’t saying anything. Whatever the truth may be, the reactions to the initial reports from various quarters were telling.An early report from the New York Post stated that “investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in...
