Posted on 04/15/2013 7:26:59 PM PDT by Sir Napsalot
A renowned expert on world terrorism says the deadly blasts that rocked Boston have all the earmarks of a domestic attack not unlike Timothy McVeighs 1995 truck-bomb explosion in Oklahoma City.
Its interesting the timing of this event, Dr. Harvey Kushner told Newsmax TVs The Steve Malzberg Show.
Its Patriots Day, Tax Day. Its a holiday in Boston and were coming up on what was the Oklahoma City bombing April 19th, and also the Battle of Lexington, which started the American Revolution.
A lot of domestic terrorist organizations used to key in on that date, April 19. And Boston is the center of this patriot movement and patriot feeling.
Kushner, author of Holy War on the Home Front: The Secret Islamic Terror Network in the United States and The Encyclopedia of Terrorism said the marathons prominence appears to be a factor in it being targeted.
Whether its at the hand of a domestic terrorist, or an internationally sponsored group or a wannabe, this is not good for this country because it just shows the vulnerability of this nation.
This is not flying planes into buildings, but its certainly hitting America on an important day and it just shows our vulnerability.
He said he believed the explosions could be the work of a McVeigh type, if I could be so bold.
Kushner, Chairman of the Department of Criminal Justice at Long Island University, said other large U.S. cities could now be in jeopardy.

Still...large sofisticated cell. Well funded. Multiple bombs. Designed to inflict terror on civilians ..it’s what Al Quida does. From London to Madrid to Baghdad.....hundreds times.
Of course, it COULD be a McVeigh type. But these explosions were so tiny they ain’t nothin’ near what McVeigh did.
I don’t guess we could expect him to go on TV and say “I have no idea who the hell did it.” And he sure ain’t gonna’ say it’s probably muslims. So that only leaves him with one choice.
I am not sure.
Mick Jagger and I share the same Birthday. I guess that makes me a Rolling Stone, according to the Experts of course.
Surprised no one has blamed it on George Zimmerman yet
If he’s right we’ll give him a medal or something but I don’t believe it for one minute. Maybe he’s one of those Dems blaming it on right wing homegrown terrorists.
I ball-bearing packed IED has nothing to do with a McVeigh-style attack.
If *I* may be so bold.
That would be Eric Robert Rudolph, who eluded capture for more than five years by "by camping in the woods, gathering acorns and salamanders, pilfering vegetables from gardens, stealing grain from a grain silo, and raiding dumpsters in a nearby town".
He currently resides in very indoor circumstances in Florence, Colorado, doing life x 5 (3 for the Olympic Park bombing + 2 for killing a cop).
Thanks, I had forgotten that one.
Yeah... Noticed that.
I don’t believe in coincidences.
These were designed to do one thing; Inflict casualties.
Not kill. Hurt. Main. Mangle. A dead body doesn’t move. A still living victim bleeds and cries.
This was a terror strike. Exactly the kind you’d expect to see in the Middle East. Right down to the methodology.
This leaves us two possible scenarios... Either an Al Queda group took a whack at us, or someone with intimate, investigation level, detailed knowledge of AQ methodology wants us to think it was an AQ attack.
One points to a failure of this Administration to do it’s job, the other to a False Flag event to drive us deeper into a full on surveillance society.
Paranoid? Maybe. But I put nothing past this Regime. Not after Fast and Furious, Bengahzi, Operation Castaway, and the fact of having a major gun control vote this week and needing everyone looking elsewhere...
where was Bill Ayers?
What a dope. This doesn’t have any resemblance whatsoever to the OK City bombing.
Teaching a class on converting folks from Capitalism to Communism...
Of course not. This is their attempt to “build the narrative”. Not from facts as the investigation evolves, but from a preconceived meme...
>>> Fast and Furious, Bengahzi, Operation Castaway, and the fact of having a major gun control vote this week and needing everyone looking elsewhere...
(1) Thanks, I didn’t know ‘Operation Castaway’
(2) Not only gun control vote, the > 1,500 page Amnesty bill set to be released Wed
Honduran drug lords, Zeta’s, and PLO terror groups.
This pResident has some interesting friends.
