CNN: Pressure Cooker Bomb 'Right-Wing' Signature
Breibart - Big Journalism ^ | 4-17-2013 | Lee Stranahan

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. .......

While we are speculating, I wonder whether Obama’s parasite illegal alien Muslim uncle might be in involved. He lives in Boston. And he may be outraged that, after only two DUIS and decades of breaking our immigration laws, some low level ICE cog had the nerve to request his removal from the USA. He wasn't deported of course, but he was subjected to the indignity of attending a hearing.

the 'fix is in', the real bombers are a thousand miles away and the administration and media have no interest in uncovering who really did it.

I have never ever heard of a right winger using a pressure cooker for anything other than canning in the fall.

Or trying to cook some tough grass fed beef raised by democrat!

But seriously, I think the MSM now categorizes Muslim terrorists as “right wing terrorists.”

If they are saying it, that’s the official template being fed to them by the Obama Administration. Take that to the bank.

And woe to the FBI agent or investigator who allows any pesky little details like to truth to get in the way.

Collective hysteria, pinpoint blame on certain group, create hatred of certain group, round up group into concentrated area for their own protection, of course.

Maybe if a bomb blew up CNN then I might halfway consider it to be “right wing extreemist”.

The media doesn't seem too worried that evidence pointing conclusively at islamic extremism will suddenly surface.

Also, the administration has already revealed their policy on openess concerning islamic terrorism in the Ft Hood and Benghazi incidents.

It doesn’t matter if this is a right-winger, OWS, Jihadist or Weatherman. The media and the government have full control of the information now. The early stages was uncontrolled and freedom of speech prevailed. They won’t eat crow on this. If they’re saying it, they’re providing the narrative, and they’ll provide the culprit. The bomber will be a conservative, Tea Party, Christian, Homeschooler, Freeper.

I hope I’m wrong. If I am wrong, the suspect will never be identified.

Looks to me the reason they haven’t found the perp is because they would rather not find the perp.

Looks to me that they already found the perp, and had to let him go, because they could not allow this to be seen as an Islamic attack.

I must be sleeping under a rock.
I haven’t been reading all of the stories of right wingers blowing up things using pressure cookers.

In fact this is the first story I have read about pressure cookers being used in bombings.
maybe I had better pay more attention.

I think so too. They successfully convinced most libs that “Nazi” means “right-wing.” Why not this too? Pretty soon, all violence will be categorized as right-wing, and you are either with the official program, or you’re a terrorist automatically. Rather like in the 1990s when the continuum among leftie humanities professors ran from GOOD (Socialist) to EVIL (Racist) and that was the only continuum they recognized. You could move away from racism only by supporting socialism.

Homeland Security warned about terrorist use of pressure cooker bombs in 2004

The almost decade-old memo described pressure cooker bombs as “a technique commonly taught in Afghan terrorist training camps.”

The 2004 memo mentions foiled plots in France, Nepal and Jammu, India. A series of seven pressure cooker bombs killed more than 200 people in India in 2006, during the Mumbai train attacks.

The idea is to plant the idea in the “minds” of as many as possible. Doesn’t matter if it’s true or not. Low information voters will remember.

When the truth comes out, the media NEVER retracts its unfounded accusations.

The left is salivating at the thought that it might be a “right winger.” If it is, the talking heads will never stop. If it’s the middle eastern death cult, they will warn us not to blame all the members of the cult cuz it’s really just a nice kind tolerant bunch of fun loving people.

That is what is being challenged right now. Give us examples of extreme right-wing individuals in the US (as they claimed).

They are presumably referring to folks who are occasionally arrested for illegal possession of homemade explosives, although I suspect you get all kinds of people being nabbed for this, presumably after being ratted out by concerned neighbors after one too many window-rattling experiments in the back yard. The reference to "extreme right-wing" is gratuitous, given that all kinds of people experiment with them as a hobby.

“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.”

My thoughts exactly. Media has been directed to bury the known facts so there is more time to spread the right wing extremist narrative. Just as they did after the Benghazi incident.

What exactly IS an extreme-right-winger?! And when is the last time that an extreme-right-winger used a pressure cooker bomb for mass casualties?

And it is sure nice to know NOW that the pressure cooker bombs used on Monday were similar to ones used in the failed 2010 Times Square bombing.

Pressure cooker bombs used around the world for years

Pressure cooker bombs like the ones authorities believe were used at the Boston Marathon have been used in attacks around the world for almost 40 years. Just two months ago, one exploded in a restaurant in Afghanistan, killing five people.

More recently, extremist Muslim jihadists have posted instructions on how to make them. Last month, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula included an article titled, "Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of your Mom," in the latest edition of its "INSPIRE" Magazine propaganda. The article, reprised from INSPIRE's first edition in July 2010, included detailed, illustrated instructions on making pressure cooker bombs.

Yep. The Saudi did it, Kerry met with the Sauds, they let him go. Now they can focus on spinning this to win an election, so they can ban guns, so they can enslave us.

Considering that Muslims are the only ones on the planet blowing people up on a regular basis means that every kind of bomb is what they use.

it does look like a 'White American'

It looks more like a white american converting to an Islamist. Note the beard.

Actually, looks have nothing to do with this. The public doesn't have enough information yet to even know 'the motive' of the bomber.

100% right. The news of the Saudi guy got out there before they could control the narrative. The MSM’s only reason for existing right now is so that Democrats can win elections and advance socialism.

Everyone seems to be overlooking the possibility that the motive of the attack was to blame the “right wingers” the same as the motive for the attempted car bombing in NYC was an attempt to blame the “right wingers”.

I have zero doubts the objective of the attack in Libya was an attempt to blame Romney and the repubs of collaborating with the terrorist.

This attack has all the earmarks of Weather Underground.
