Skip to comments.CNN: Pressure Cooker Bomb 'Right-Wing' Signature
Posted on 04/17/2013 5:47:18 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot
An article published on CNN's website makes an unproven claim that pressure cooker bombs like the ones used at the Boston Marathon terror attack are a 'signature' of 'right-wing extremists.' The article was co-written by Jennifer Roland and Peter Bergen. Bergen is the CNN ananlyst made the claim that right-wing extremists could be behind the bombing less than two hours after it took place.
The article says (emphasis added) :
A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.
This specific claim that "pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States" appears to be completely unsubstantiated. Not a single example is given even in the CNN story itself of anyone other than al-Quadea using a pressure cooker bomb.
The article goes on to discuss the Olympic Park bombing by anti-abortion terrorist Erich Rudolph but those bombings were done with pipe bombs, not pressure cooker bombs. .......

I had no idea that right wingers were blowing up people.
Yes.. let’s just ignore the fact that technique is used by Taliban-allied jihadis in Afghanistan and Pakistan on a regular basis. We certainly can’t let annoying little facts get in the way.
Funny, Wolf Blitzer asked a leading question of Rep King in that vein yesterday and Rep King said “No, it’s a signature of Al Qeada.”
From the same media who won’t call people in the country illegally “illegal aliens” because it’s “dehumanizing”.
If I were a liberal in 2013, I’d be wiping my ass with the little people too.
The MSM is trying so damn hard to turn this into a right wing plot based on pure speculation.
Realistically, it has the signature of anyone that can get on the internet and is crazy.
False flag accusations: left stream DNC media “signature”
“I had no idea that right wingers were blowing up people.”
Their not but that doesn’t keep the left from saying they are.....the end justifies the means dontchaknow. ;>)
...Or maybe CNN or another left wing network planted the bomb so they can find the kind of news that they like reporting on. Ahah!
It's alQaida that advocates the use of pressure cooker bombs ~ they are far left of Center (in CNN's own fevered imagination regarding what is Center) ~ on a totalitarianism scale of 1 to 10 where CNN;s own score is 9, alQaida is 10, and the Democrats are at 9. Everyone else including hermit monks who do not interact with anyone are at 1.
Looks to me the reason they haven’t found the perp is because they would rather not find the perp. They would rather insinuate it was a right winger and leave it at that.
I have never ever heard of a right winger using a pressure cooker for anything other than canning in the fall.
King also said that “we can’t eliminate terrorism, it will always be with us”.
Question for Representative King: why are there no young Japanese men crashing airplanes into our aircraft carriers?
Maybe I’m ignorant on the subject but until yesterday I’d never even heard the term “pressure cooker bomb”.
Domestic Terrorists: 5 times more likely to be leftists since 1970 according to the DHS, but who cares about FACTS, right?
Look at Suspect #1, if this is true, the guy with the backpack, it does look like a 'White American'
Pressure cookers and the shrapnel is WHAT islamic freaks use.
Good lord will these people stop at no lie to tarnish American citizens?
Can the backpack still be ‘relatively’ intact? Need expert opinions.....
