FTFA: the Investigative Project on Terrorism's Steve Emerson...based his information on a number of his confidential sources. "I just learned from my own sources that he is now going to be deported on national security grounds next Tuesday," Emerson said.

I wouldn't trust anything Steve Emerson says without open sources to back him up. He's a major self-styled "terrorism expert" with lots of foundation money to back him up and no real training or expertise. His organization was profiled in "Fear, Inc."

And if I were him, I'd accept that deportation with a smile on my face and a song in my heart.  Assuming that he was innocent, I feel for that dude.  I would hate to have traveled halfway around the world to the US and show up at the ONE EFFING TERRORIST EXPLOSION of the year.  That poor schmuck must have thought he was Cuba-bound for sure.

SlothB77: the NYPost is already on to two other dark-skinned young males, the blue tracksuit guy and his friend in the white hat, who are persons of interest, but not the actual bombers.

People have found blue tracksuit guy's facebook page and apparently it is a SHOW.


these two guys are locals. They are running enthusiasts, not terrorists. One of them coaches little kids. Truly they are monstors. This is the problem with crowd sourcing this shiat. Instead of working together to look for clues, people just do a where's waldo with the brown guys in the picture and then go on a witch hunt. Reddit and 4chan should be ashamed of themselves - they just created two more victims.

Summoner101: Why are people playing up the Saudi angle? We are not going to go to war with Saudi Arabia.


What, 17 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudi. It's not as if it's inconceivable that a Saudi national would be behind a terrorist attack. Just doesn't appear that this one was, seems he was more a victim of being brown in the wrong place at the wrong time.

We don't know who did it yet.  Apparently there are persons of interest which may or may not end up becoming suspects.  Personally, I won't be surprised if we find out it was some ant-tax right wing nut given it was April 15:  Tax Day, and in Massachusetts, Patriots' Day.  However, I do not know if this is indeed the case or not yet.


Also, as soon as I saw "The Blaze," I dismissed a lot of the "reporting" in this so-called article.

Giltric: GAT_00: It doesn't matter that this doesn't appear at the moment to be foreign terrorism.


Based on what?

How many domestic terrorists have used pressure cookers as part of the bomb design?


The anarchist cookbook has been in publication since 1971 and it outlines how to make a pressure cooker bomb.

Why not just say that?


Because it serves the interests of people like Steve Emerson to frame it as a "national security" issue.

make me some tea: Tea Party Nation is in full conspiracy mode.
http://www.teapartynation.com/forum/topics/questions-that-must-be-an sw ered-now


Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction.

Think of sandy hook.....at first the ar was found in the trunk of the car and they claimed he used pistols, then they say the ar was used to kill the kids and it was a shotgun that was found in the car....then the coroner says all the bullets stayed within the victims which makes it sound like hollow point rounds from pistols because rifle rounds will go through 20 inches of ballistic gelatin let alone an 8 inch thick torso of an adolescent.

Sometimes things don't make sense but we have to believe them because they come from an official involved in the investigation and who are we to question their knowledge and authority.

So according to the article this isn't an official report released from any government agency-- just some guy who is often wrong making a claim based on his unnamed source.

This is about as credible as reposting Twitter rumors as "news."

He has been studying terrorist organizations for 20 years. He runs the largest private counterterrorism think tank in the United States. Name an organization inside the US that doesn't work for uncle sam that has more expertise than that?

BTW, "national security grounds" probably means he is in the country on an expired visa. Not really worth commenting on.

FarkinNortherner: Mr Guy: the big doofy white guy who they picked out for carrying his bag oddly

The big doofy white guy is carrying a bag which appears to match one of those which exploded and appears to have a Fox logo (as per the zipper tag.) The two other guys seem to have been selected principally owing to their not being melanin impaired. Which is nice.


Yeah, but seriously, "appears to match" covers 90% of the backpacks sold in this country, at least at that distance, resolution, and angle.  That's why it was so easy to find nearly 15 to 20 people all "possibles" with dang near the same bag, plus or minus decorative reflective stitching and brand logos.

He's just a high school kid that loves track. Supposedly, he wasn't even with the white hat dude and doesn't know him

By the way, I happened to have our local right wing nut on the radio this morning (Quinn and Rose, they are in syndication now), and he was going on about how this is just like Oklahoma City, where they had an Arab connection that they went out of their way to downplay.  This is most definitely going to be part of most ensuing conspiracy theories.  Take it to the bank.
