CBS mentioned Inspire magazine--the official magazine of Al Qaeda--stated in last month's issue that readers weren't supposed to sign up for membership and training. They should instead read the directions of how to bomb and just do things on their own.

This might be the outcome of that issue of Inspire.

Mock26: So, has anyone in this thread yet blamed the government for this?


Me! oh me! My turn to talk out of my ass.

Obama blew up Boston to:

1) Distract us from the sequester thing.
2) Force people to give up their 2nd amendment rights.
3) Go take a golf vacation in Hawaii.

Also, there was a fuzzy smudge on one video picture. IT WAS A DRONE, AND OBAMA SAID HE COULD BLOW UP AMERICANS WITH DRONES!

ScaryBottles: Amos Quito: ScaryBottles: Amos Quito: ScaryBottles: Amos Quito: Deducing who the culprits might be in such a situation:

1. TERRORISTS: Look at those who are "most likely" to have reason to commit such an act out of hatred.

2. FALSE FLAG: Look at the ENEMIES of category 1, as they might benefit from creating enemies of their enemies.


In other words, you ask the simple question: WHO BENEFITS?

3. CRAZIES: Consider that it MAY have been committed by one or more lunatics with NO apparent motive other than death and destruction.

Do you really believe that?


What part do you question?

The second and third


For the second, see "False-Flag". Acts committed by one party with the specific intent of having a non-involved third party take the blame, the goal being to give the actual culprit political advantages. In such attacks evidence is often planted implicating the third party. The Reichstag Fire of 1933 Germany is a well known example of a suspected "false-flag" attack.

As to CRAZIES, think Adam Lanza and "Sideshow Bob". These had no clear political motives or "statements" to make, yet they created death and destruction - for no apparent reason.

Need I say more?

Well great news everyone Amos here has it all figured out! No man really thats brilliant I guess we won't need to fill up the whole blackboard after all.



I'm sorry.

Who did you have your heart set on blaming?

Koreans?

Iranians?

Mooselimbs?

Palestinians?

You go ahead and blame whoever makes you feel better. Mmmkay?

2013-04-15 09:21:52 PM  

ACunningPlan: Below is your point in which you claim the IRA does not attempt to kill random civilians. You'll notice in my reply, I do state this is very unlikely to have anything to do with Irish terrorism. However, having lived through both the Provos & the UFF's campaigns of NOT targeting civilians, I do disagree with you. By all means, please feel free to point out how I have no idea what I'm talking about.


Are you capable of reading multiple sentences as part of a paragraph?

Let's see, I wrote:

The IRA does not, generally speaking, attempt to kill random civilians. It has happened in the past, but most attacks are at infrastructure, not people, and they call ahead to warn that people should be evacuated.

There, that's where I said that they have, in the past, attempted to kill random civilians.

The word "it", you see, refers to the previous sentence, and is a pronoun representing "the IRA attempting to kill random civilians".

Can you comprehend that? Is it too difficult for you? Should I use smaller words?

2013-04-15 09:22:04 PM  
Is a "person of interest" often an unknown person with significant info?  Like the guy at the counter at the U-haul rental place until they talk to them?

They keep reporting that the bomb was low because it damaged so many peoples legs.  I expect it was because someone took the full force of the blast up higher.  Were they ball bearings or BBs since wal-mart sells one and not the other.

CNN International is now talking about Al-Qaeda training people to make these... and forgetting that it is straight from the CIA play book from when the Russians were the bad guys in Afghanistan.

I haven't looked at any of the linked pics today, maybe I should since my imagination can be a lot worse than reality, and the descriptions sound pretty bad as it is.

Kibbler: If there had been an effective use of ball bearings as shrapnel, I'm pretty sure there would be more like 100+ dead by now.  It looks to me like these were crude, weak bombs made by morons.



In the first video of the explosion, you see a runner going down and rolling on his back.  He was hit by something.

He seems to be claiming some inside knowledge. I think that he needs to be questioned in detail, probably at Gitmo.

what_now: Thrag: hockeyfarker: what_now: They keep showing this video, and there's an old guy who's 10 feet from the finish and when the bomb hits, he simply collapses. I know it's not the worst thing that happened, but the idea of a guy of advanced years getting hit by shrapnel 10 feet from finishing a marathon... I don't even.

I saw some aftermath pictures, that guy was okay. Well, he wasn't bleeding, eyes were open and alert, cops were helping him, anyways. No shrapnel. Probably couldn't hear shiat though.

He's being interviewed on CNN right now.

cloakandbadger: 'False Flag!' is what people cry about when someone from their ideology commits a violent act or when said violent act somehow discredits their ideology. It's easier than thinking.

Dollars to donuts we're dealing with either 1) foreign Muslim nutball 2) domestic Muslim nutball 3) domestic Right-wing nutball or 4) domestic dress up like Garfield and claim obedience to the fish-people nutball.

Thoughts/prayers to those affected and their families.



If they open up that third, unexploded bomb and find a copy of the Koran and Mohammed Atta's passport, we'll know you are correct.

Then we can attack Iraq again.

Here is Brigham and Womens Hospital. SWAT and ATF are now guarding the hospital.

Why is purely speculation, and it's Foxnews, but it's a local affiliate

WBZ Boston (CBS) has been reporting that, as well.


Normal procedure, so that they can get forensics and detectives in to interview anyone who was wounded in the attack.  All the hospitals have them.  The police tweeted "Don't read anything into it"

2013-04-15 09:26:06 PM  

Lars The Canadian Viking: Didn't see this mentioned so far, but it looks like whoever did this kinda sucked at making bombs: People are saying they could smell gun powder, there was a lot of smoke, people not too far away seemed fine, and not much shockwaveish damage, so it looks like it was gunpowder based, probably a pipe bomb type thing which is going to be mostly shrapnel injuries. Different story if he had used proper high explosives.


I just said the same thing to my wife - no shockwave in the video, tons of smoke, buildings still all look like they kept their glass on the front. All I know about explosives is what I watch on Youtube and what I've read in the Improvised Munitions Handbook, but gunpowder and not something requiring a detonator was my guess, too.
