Skip to comments.Boston Marathon Bombs Have Hallmarks Of "Lone Wolf" Devices, Experts Say
Posted on 04/17/2013 6:26:53 AM PDT by Biggirl
(CNN) -- The devices used in the Boston Marathon attack Monday are typical of the "lone wolf:" the solo terrorist who builds a bomb on his own by following a widely available formula. In this case, the formula seems very similar to one that al Qaeda has recommended to its supporters around the world as both crudely effective and difficult to trace. But it is also a recipe that has been adopted by extreme right-wing individuals in the United States. The threat of the "lone wolf" alarms the intelligence community.

“Lone Wolf” = Muslim terrorist but we don’t want to say that.
I find it interesting that there is an assumption that if the terrorists are domestic they must therefore be right-wing.
Except for the “two of them” thing. Getting one bomb in by yourself is hard enough.
I bet the hotline been buzzing non stop between the FBI and the whitehut.
Find a white guy, doesn’t matter if its real, CGI, drawn by Disney or Japanese anime, just get the MSM hooked on right wing terrorists.
I suspect these are the same ex-spurts that told us the attack in Bengazi was caused by a video.
He had he'p or maybe a van, and did it several hours ~ to even days ~ earlier.
It’s going to get worse than that. Remember Rush Limbaugh was blamed for OKC bombing, and Sarah Palin’s “crosshairs” on Tuscon.
Not a left wing domestic terrorist, a right wing terrorist.
In spite of all the evidence of the left's fondness for bombs. Including the president's political benefactor.
It is similar to Lanza and the guy who shot Gifford and the anti-war bomb in NYC and Eric Rudolph and Tim McVeigh except none of them were right-wing.
But a bunch of right wingers wanted to do it in their heart because Rush Limbaugh told them to do it.
It wouldn’t surprise me if they never find who did it because they are probably aware that the culprit would embarrass the White House.
Lone wolf= w.a.s.p.
At least in the minds eye of the msm. If they had a mind.
When you have an agenda the facts matter little. CNN/MSNBC and the like will continue to pound everything into a ‘right wing’ hole.
They blamed a video maker for Benghazi. I wonder if they’ll blame Emeril or Wolfgang for this one.
It was done after the bomb-sniffing dogs were used in the morning.
Lone Goat ?
A pressure cooker in a backpack without looking suspicious.... maybe.
A backpack big enough for two pressure cookers... nope.
Maybe multiple trips...
Do the bass turds offer any evidence to support this claim?
Didn’t need to do that. It was a sealed device. The dog sniffing bomb dogs wouldn’t have picked up a thing ~
Yes, That is a lot of “lugging” around.
at least two,probably more.
Wait! that means a conspiracy, ...!!!
(can't have that! /sarc)
Those two clues show that the writer is “clueless”.
Believe the CNN dorks at your peril.
Plus the culprit had to hang around long enough to not look suspicious dropping off a package in a crowd.
Maybe, maybe it’s a Uni-bomber type. Who knows at this point.
Yeah they will. Those dogs are good. There is always residue.
Chris Mathews and Al Sharpton have blabbed enough that they are definitely on the suspect list ~ you can’t yak that much and be innocent!
the fact that the perp hasn’t come forward yet... makes me think he is already dead.
perhaps he committed suicide later and left a note explaining why he did it, but just hasn’t been found yet.
The Soviet way, make your own facts.
He did point out that if this person was trained, then they have left the area. He also pointed out that there must have been zero chatter because of the lack of leads. He did not mention this but I wonder if the Obama use of drones and lack of human intelligence will ultimately prove a factor in the lack of information and leads. Just speculation at this time...
Lone Wolf = Muslim terrorist but we dont want to say that.
Disagree. Lone Wolf = We have no clue. Amazingly, this has gone from “we are 100% sure we will get the bomber” to “lone wolf, cold trail, etc.” in just one day. CYA mode kicking in big time I think.
Two bombs = two backpacks = at least two bombers.
His bombs were stable ~ so he could drop them in the mail any time he wanted.
They don't need evidence. The fact that they say it is supposed to be taken as the truth. Like Mika saying this morning that 90% of US citizens support gun registration. Where'd she get that number?
When, exactly, has a pressure cooker bomb with ball bearings been used by "extreme right-wing individuals" in the United States? Do most US households even own pressure cookers or have any idea of what to do with one?
AFAIK, the first reported use of this device in the US was in the 1976 Grand Central Station bomb which involved Croatian terrorists -- not exactly "extreme right-wing individuals in the United States". It sounds to me like they're tying themselves into logical pretzels to avoid stating the obvious -- that this is the work of Islamic terrorists. As IMO, the only thing missing here is a tape claiming responsibility for the bombing -- and that's presuming that news organizations haven't received a tape.
Residue of what? I have a pretty good surficant in my kitchen. I can scrub down the outside of a sealed pressure cooker in no time at all and leave nothing. As long as you don’t put fried chicken grease on there, the dogs don’t care.
But.....but......we must not "jump to conclusions."
Where was Obama’s Chicago pal on that day?.
Not sure there wouldn’t be some sort of residue the dogs would have picked up. I remember Neal Boortz joking he was going to spend all morning at the gun range, then go straight to the Atlanta airport and take a flight to Florida.
I’ve followed the news for decades, and I don’t recall a “pressure cooker bomb” ever being used by an American. For that matter, I don’t recall a bomb being used by an American that was directed at “soft targets”...
Can someone correct me if I’m wrong.
You just hit the nail on the head, my FRiend.
IF it was a White, Christian, Licensed Gun Owning, Republican, He would have been found, tried, convicted and executed by now.
The long delays, speculations, denials, and coverups point to the “Religion of Peace” more than anything else.
Just my opinion.
Uhhhh, Mr. Expert, could you provide one single example of this.
Also, this type of bomb is used pretty often in Central Asia. Certainly doesn’t indicate Tea Partiers to me...
must be Workplace Violence...
nothing to see here...
Think that tells you what they are looking for eh!
Not an actual pressure per se cooker though I have heard of fire extinguishers being used.
Its typical MSM fixation upon objects.It even sounds sinister, worse yet if its black obviously.
Unabomber = Unabama
