DHS Has Not Issued Terror Alert After Boston Marathon Bombing
Breitbart ^ | 4/15/13 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 04/15/2013 10:49:12 PM PDT by Nachum

The Department of Homeland Security has not issued a terror alert in response to Monday's bombings in Boston. On the Department of Homeland Security’s National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) website, the administration says: “There are no current alerts.”

According to a source with knowledge of these matters, a terror alert "gives authority for full mobilization of law enforcement resources to feds, state and locals.” The source told Breitbart News that the administration is supposed to issue such an alert out of the National Counterterrorism Center, via NTAS, but no such alert has been issued after the bombings in Massachusetts.

Describing the NTAS on a Frequently Asked Question page, the Department of Homeland Security says:

When there is credible information about a threat, an NTAS Alert will be shared with the American public. It may include specific information, if available, about the nature of the threat, including the geographic region, mode of transportation, or critical infrastructure potentially affected by the threat, as well as steps that individuals and communities can take to protect themselves and help prevent, mitigate or respond to the threat.

This could mean they know plenty about the bombers.

I do have faith in the FBI. I don't trust this administration, DOJ (Eric Holder) and DHS. Look how they have handled the attack at Fort Hood and the attack on our US Embassy in Libya. There's so much dishonesty and cover up with these people.

Funny how Obama's hair got all gray again, in less than 24 hrs. He sure looks serious.

And that it’s probably not a foreign terrorist group. I’m really hoping it’s not someone who is even remotely connected to the Tea Party.

The most important thing is, when is the next celebrity gathering at the White House?

It’s been party, party, party.

Let’s not have an interruption, shall we?

So.. if caught in the act.. would it have been legal under the Geneva Convention to shoot the perp with one of the DHS’s 1.4 billion hollow point bullets?

I doubt it’s a domestic group but the DHS wold certainly like to imply that it was as per their usual demonization.

Perhaps DHS placed it in the “Workplace Violence Alert” tab on their website. This early in the year it could be called “Workplace Violence Alert Abdullah” or if we forgot the first one already...”Workplace Violence Alert Achmed”.

I did a little channel surfing early this morning and it just seemed to me as if the MSM was acting in a strange manner. The folks on ABC were talking about how hard it is for the FBI to track and uncover some of these people/groups, etc. Almost seemed like they were giving cover. I couldn’t help but wonder what the coverage would’ve been like had Bush been in office?

Obama’s talk last night about not rushing to judgement also had me wondering: who was he talking about? Don’t rush to believe it was a white TEA Party guy? Or, more likely, don’t rush to believe it was a peaceful Muslim.

Look at that Picture.

Does that make you feel safe?

That frightens the crap out of me to think these two are in charge of my safety.

Neither one is smart enough to bell a buzzard.

Let's be real - Homeland Security is very busy tracking and
demonizing law abiding American citizens. They don't have time
to keep track of every muslim terrorist wanna-be.

This heralds that the murders were a probable DHS/Obama plan.

The lack of an alert is perfectly rational. They had no hint of the Boston attack. It is therefore reasonable they have no knowledge of any other attacks.

The damage from over reacting is greater than the event. After all, there were only two killed in Boston. That is half of the toll in Bengazi. That means the efforts are actually decling in force. That means we are actually winning. /s

Apparently there was no trace of Sarah Palin or the Tea Party. Who needs an alert?

This means they know it was Moslems.

If it was a Timothy McVeigh-type it would be five-alarm terror alert.

More than likely, it was a targeted attack. The WH knew the Boston Marathon was a target.
The more people involved in the operation, the more likely the noise will be picked up.

If they honestly didn’t know it was ROP, the President would not have warned us about jumping to conclusions. He would have been on his “punish the guilty and the people who drove them to it” soapbox.

I don't; the FBI was intimately involved in Ruby Ridge, IIRC.

Oh, well in that case it makes a lot of sense. You see the "muslim terrorist wanna-be" is not a threat to our overlords, only to mere citizens, whereas the [armed] citizen is a threat to the overlord. It's a win-win situation for them: the terrorists kill people that they consider a threat and, likely, the people will clamor for more restriction on their liberties... or at least not complain as much when so restricted.
