Laptop could contain important Boston bombing clues ("Alleged" Boston Terrorist's computer found)
WTOP-FM ^ | May 2, 2013 | Mitch Miller

Posted on 05/02/2013 6:31:53 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

A laptop tied to the Boston bombing suspects has been recovered and could provide important clues as authorities look into how the suspects were radicalized.

Pete Williams, NBC justice correspondent, says the FBI has the laptop, although investigators have not spoken publicly about the computer.

Both Williams and Bryan Bender, national security correspondent for the Boston Globe, spoke with WTOP on Thursday about the latest developments in the investigation.

"The laptop could be critical in learning how they became radicalized and how they learned to make the bombs," Bender says. "(Investigators believe the suspects) became more religious, they became more inspired to do this attack through internet sites, perhaps by communicating with some jihadists overseas."

Bender also notes that cellphone data have already provided plenty of clues....

If you hand it over to the Feds, it will come up “inconclusive.” It’s the way Obama/Holder/Hillary do business.

Isn’t it “odd” that the bomber’s 19 yr old pals -— college students?-—grabbed his backpack and a jar of vaseline.

The “innocent” kids knew that vaseline was used in bomb-making?

Hmmmmm....the classes at UMass-Dartmouth must be interesting——cackle.

Let me ask you this, first.

Have you or anyone you know ever seen a toxicology report on the Newtown shooter?

Baloney---the whole family were radicals when they came here. They held off bombing b/c they were getting wealthy courtesy of Mass taxpayers.

The bomber brothers lived lavishly, drove luxury cars and had the leisure time and money to buy and build deadly bombs...with no visible means of support. Monthly welfare check would not suffice---they had to have several other sources of income.

A look at Tamerlan's reading list on Amazon shows he researched forging phony identities---a practice very common in the latino community.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/registry.html?ie=UTF8&type=wishlist&id=1PNVMAW2D4CT1

======================================

NJ BERGEN RECORD CIRCA 2004---Pelcastre brothers, Angel and Jorge, Dallas, Texas, were a walking threat to US national security, expert document forgers who, for a few thousand dollars, could give anyone a new identity (many latinos establish multiple identities in order to ride the US gravy train).

The Texas brothers were a "one-stop shop" for a myriad of fake US documents, including birth certificates, Social Security cards, driver's licenses----for any state in the US------ passports and resident alien cards, said NJ state police.

The Texas brothers turned a NJ hotel room into a business office and were readying a massive cache of fake Social Security cards for delivery to a local NJ identity broker. Officers happened upon two cars bearing Texas plates in a NJ hotel parking lot.

The Texas brothers were followed to a NJ office supply store nearby where they purchased computer supplies. Officers then followed the Texans to a NJ storage facility in Secaucus, NJ, where the Texans loaded several boxes into a car. One of them stood lookout. After a search, police recovered laminating sheets with built-in security features, pages of blank documents waiting for fake names and information, finished documents, computers and software to create the fake IDs.

All told, the haul was worth about $500,000 on the street when sold to "impoverished illegals." Police also recovered $6,000 in cash, which was the first payment from a NJ fake document broker for a shipment of 500 phony Social Security cards. ####

Several year ago, a TV report concerned a US Post Office somewhere near the Mexican border that was used by illegals to send money home. It was so busy the US Govt. put in several trailers to handle the business.

===========================================

The Third World knows massive financial benefits would derive from "immigration reform"......Third world pressure groups exchanging votes for foreign aid---zillions of us tax dollars going straight into the pockets of corrupt third world federales.

THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES W/ PRESSURE GROUPS IN THE US (here illegally sending billions back home): Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominica Republic, Ecuador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico (stateside), Salvador, Spain, Uruguay, Venezuela.

"could provide important clues"

Important?

No, important clues are those that would have caused these jihadis to be intercepted BEFORE the event.

Interesting? Maybe. More like irrelevant compared to understanding sharia, muzzies and jihad and their interactions with the US and the US Constitution.

You will be told what to believe. The tox report is irrelevant. The gun did everything. Focus on the gun like you are supposed to.

What?

The Obamadork/felon has not sent one of his State Department worthless degree-possessing, science flunkout minions to confiscate and “lose” the machine?

I never thought that there would be absolutely no department in our government that I’d respect (except for the military), but that time has come.

And, hopefully, the military will know which way to point their missiles when Revolution II comes.

Videos and attending a mosque doesn’t turn a friendly little boy into a hardened terrorist...it comes form the tribal relationship that is embedded/symbiotic to that of Islam...likened to a scorpion that stings you if you pick it up — that what it does!

Coming up with these “soft” excuses will only allow more attacks against US Citizens inside the US...it does not directly call the situation what it really is!

Obama is concerned about that and is changing leadership in that institution as rapidly as he can without any one catching what is happening.

MHO of course.

There is a book that speaks to what is going on ....

Unholy Alliance: Radical Islam And The American Left [Hardcover]

David Horowitz (Author)

*******************************Amazon EXCERPT ****************************************

Editorial Reviews

Review

An original look at those who want us to fail in the Middle East, both at home and abroad. The -- Davis Hanson, Author, Ripples of Battle

Before Americans vote for their next president, they must read David Horowitz's account of the Left's alliance with Islamic radicls -- Lt. General Thomas McInerney USAF (Ret.), Co author, with Maj. General Paul Vallely, Endgame

David Horowitz is synonymous with pyrotechnics. A historian and polemicist of the first order, he is paid the ultimate compliment -- Rich Lowry, Editor National Review

Mike 'Rifle' DeLong was the best deputy commander I could have imagined. Seasoned in Vietnam as a young helicopter pilot, -- General Tommy R. Franks, U.S. Army (Ret.), former commander of CentCom

Written with great zest and intellectual energy, David Horowitz's Unholy Alliance is primarily a devastating indictment of how the radical -- Norman Podhoretz, Author, critic, and senior fellow at the Hudson Institute

From the Inside Flap

In this tour de force on the most important issue of our time, David Horowitz, confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the "Great Satan" with America’s radical Islamic enemies. This Left, which once made common cause with Communists, has now joined forces with radical Islam in attacking America’s defenses at home and its policies abroad. From their positions of influence in the university and media culture, leftists have defined America as the "root cause" of the attacks against it. In a remarkable exploration of the "Mind of the Left," Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its "anti-war" present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror.

Horowitz’s Unholy Alliance, writes John Haynes, the noted historian of American Communism, "is an insightful, brilliant examination of the mental world of the radical left. Horowitz shows how today’s radicals, unwilling to reflect on the internal flaws that destroyed Marxism-Leninism from within, have embraced an all-consuming nihilism in its place. This has led them to a hatred of American institutions and a solidarity with Islamic terrorists that makes the radical left more properly regarded as dangerous than loony."

Unholy Alliance is an eye-opening book that should unsettle conventional assumptions and reveals why intellectuals and political leaders who applaud Michael Moore are no laughing matter. As Harvey Klehr, author of Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America, writes, "The world Communist movement may be moribund, but its habits of mind and ideological fantasies have not disappeared. This is a fascinating and depressing account."
