Terror Expert: Boston Attack More Columbine More Than 9/11,"These Are Murders not Terrorists"
Fox News (via You Tube) ^ | Apr 21, 2013 | Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday

Posted on 04/23/2013 6:39:00 PM PDT by Texas Fossil

Philip Mudd, former counterterror expert for the CIA and the FBI

--

"I would charge these guys as murders not terrorists," Mudd said of the suspects in the attack on the Boston Marathon.

--

"What I fear though is that people too quickly categorize this as terrorism," Mudd added. "This looks more to me like Columbine than it does like Al Qaeda."

--

"Two kids who radicalized between themselves in a closed circle and go out and commit murder," Mudd observed. "I would charge these guys as murderers, not terrorists."

Only in the ObamaNation is it possible to so distort the truth.

Lies 24/7. Every word spun to so distort the truth as to poison the wellspring of the National Fabric.

You don’t need a bomb to kill people.

You use a bomb to send a message..., one to induce terror.

He is an idiot. He is an FBI terror expert? Maybe this is part of the reason the FBI dropped the ball when they interviewed the older brother two years ago.

You’re absolutely correct.

With a hand gun they could have killed dozens more.

He's actually right about this. I've had several folks who work in counter-terrorism tell me this sort of thing. In fact, they used the similarities in the psychological profiles of American terrorists like John Walker Lindh and Adam Gadahn and the Columbine killers to make the point.

In all of these cases the culprits are misfits and losers who simply can't cope with their life situation in the modern world, and so they hide behind some kind of fabricated grievance to rationalize their psychotic behavior.

Former NBA star Charles Barkley of all people actually pegged this one perfectly the other day in an interview. When asked what he thought was behind this, he said (I'm paraphrasing): "They're crazy, plain and simple. Just because you think you have a reason for being an idiot, it doesn't mean you're not an idiot when you do something like this."

Exactly. It takes a real coward to be a terrorist.

They butcher many people, and slink back into the sub-culture to do it again.

Can you believe that one idiot went back to school to discuss the bombing with other students?

I hope they slice this guy up in tiny little pieces and feed him to the pigs in hell.

They are both.

The Boston Bombers were and are terrorists, but they are no different than the Columbine killers or Adam Lanza.

Thankfully, the Boston Bombers did not have a body count as high as Adam Lanza or the Columbine killers.

Same could be said of the spoil brat Commie terrorists of the 1960s and 1970s and 1980s (the Weather Underground and beyond).

The leaders of the youth movement were neither young nor poor.

Hmmm...let’s see now.One of them appears to have slit the throats of three Jews a year or two ago on 9/11.And more recently,as they were being chased by police (after having set off a bomb at a large gathering and also after having killed a cop),they were throwing bombs out the window of their car.There are only three types who do that kind of thing...members of the IRA...members of Mexican drug gangs...and moslem jihadis.And they didn’t look Irish or Mexican to me.

I think we have a political and emotional reason to turn these things into something more than the simple diabolical workings of two @ssholes.

I read a fascinating article a few years about Islamic radicals in France that provided a lot of insight into this. France is filled with Muslim immigrants from places like Algeria, but the original immigrants from several decades ago have never really been a problem over there. They were too busy working for a living, driving cabs, running newspaper stands, etc. to cause any trouble. The real problem they face is with the children of those immigrants, along with more recent immigrants -- who can all enjoy a high standard of living without working a single day in their lives.

Sound familiar? It's called an entire class of professional malcontents, and this country is filled with them. These two @ssholes from Russia who ended up living in Boston didn't have to work for a living and never had to pay for their own education, and yet somehow they washed up on our shores and ended up in better schools than I ever attended as a lifelong American and taxpayer since the age of 13.

“With a hand gun they could have killed dozens more.”

Are you kidding me? Both of the muzz brothers had handguns and apparently shot a hell of a lot of rounds at the cops, and at that they only seemed to have hit one (this obviously does not include the MIT cop who was assassinated while sitting in his car, but that was an up close and personal hit that required zero skill with a firearm). But, what’s worse — as far as marksmanship — was that the legions of cops fired hundreds of rounds and only hit the two suspects maybe four or five times. That means that a couple hundred rounds “went somewhere.”

Both the perps and the cops needed far more range time before hitting the streets, because innocent people in their homes were definitely at risk during this shoot-em-up.

Listened to Michelle Bachman on Hannity today. It took her two months to get FBI training manuals on Terrorism. 57 groups of Islamists in USA requested FBI remove Islam terrorism from training manuals. John Brennan removed them like in a week. Took Michelle months to get a reply from Brennan. Anyways- Islamists have succeeded in telling our FBI/CIA/Homeland Security what they can say and what they can’t.

“Murderers don’t kill strangers just to make a statement to other strangers.”

Adam Lana killed strangers.

Should we treat the Boston Bomber harsher than James Holmes or Jared Lee Loughner?

Actually, like these recent Muslim bombers, Walker Lindh and Adam Gadahn did it in the name of Islamic Jihad. There’s no comparison whatsoever to the Columbine killers who were simply mental nutcase psychopaths acting out their violent video game fantasies against their school mates who avoided them like the plague.

Former. Whatever the liberals say believe the opposite.

The murderers from Columbine were not Chechen, nor were they muslims. They were mentally disturbed. These two were muslim extremists who wanted to kill as many people as possible for allah.

I can’t stand these liberal loons. They don’t care how many of us die as long as it’s not them.
