Someone's kids. That's for sure.
If they'd used plastics, or dynamite, we could trace them through the taggants in the explosives, but, thanks to the NRA, they're not allowed to put taggants in gunpowder.

"As you begin this long journey of recovery, your city is with you, your commonwealth is with you, your country is with you," Obama said. "We will all be with you as you learn to stand and walk and, yes, run again.Of that, I have no doubt. You will run again."After his speech, Obama met with volunteers and Boston Marathon organizers, many of whom cared for the injured, and with victims at Massachusetts General Hospital.
They don't look like arabs to me. Though it is hard to tell. They look like US college students, I think. Whole thing is odd. That Saudi rich kid with the golden pistol is not being deported after all. That was in error. Some other unrelated Saudi is though, probably, last I read.
Fox News, not always wrong, just described one of them as 'Caucasian'.
Caucasians, from the Caucasus Mountains, why those pesky Russians!

On this day two years ago, S&P lowered its long-term outlook on U.S. government debt to “negative” from “stable.” The move set the stage for the eventual credit downgrade a few months later that rocked markets and caused some of the most volatile daily swings in stock-market history.
The older guy looks like he's comfortable carrying a backpack. Has kind of a military walk.
The suspect at large, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is 19 and has a Massachusetts driver’s license, they said. Law enforcement officials told NBC News that both men are legal permanent residents of the United States, had been here about a year and had military experience.
One thing I found odd was the one bomb planted by the curb was right by a US Post Box. The after photos show the mail box still standing there, not damaged at all, that I could see. It was only like two feet away or so.
I suppose that mailbox, or whatever it was, was bolted down.
I'm sure it was, but jeez I'd of thought it would at least show some buckling or something. And people want mail delivery to go private. No way! I like the US Postal Service. Never lost a letter for me yet. :)White cap backwards almost looks no older than a high school student.
I'm going with disgruntled U.S. Soldier, and his younger brother.Maybe, immigrated when the older one was pre-teen.
Brothers, hadn't thought of that. You might be right.At least brothers in crime at this point, it looks like.There is tape of the one placing the bomb by the curb.
Possibly Albanian or Turkish.
Definitely not Swedish or Cherokee.
Those two look Jewish
I'll bet really really heavily against that notion.You are just trying to raise a controversy.
Dark completions, big noses, dark hair. Caucasus Jews also known as Juhuro are Jews from the eastern and northern slopes of Caucasus Mountains. That also fits the FOX News report that the suspects are Caucasians.
And just why would they want to blow up the Boston Marathon?I see white complexions.
I've know quite a number of Jewish people, so far I haven't met one with an oversized nose, anymore than anyone else. What nose they have they tend to keep to some legitimate grindstone, and I've never heard even one talk about blowing anything up, except in one case, and he was referring to the Iranian nuclear program, and for our sake as much as Israel's.
What does irritate me about the Jewish people I have know is most of them usually vote Democratic.
The investigation will probably collect about a million hours of videotape from fixed security cameras and cellphones and cameras used by spectators, said Gene Grindstaff, a scientist at Intergraph Corp., a Huntsville, Ala., company that makes video analysis software used by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies....The bomb components would be traced by figuring out the item's maker, where each piece is typically purchased and whether the device resembles any bombs the FBI has seen in past attacks. The FBI lab keeps a detailed file on past bombings, including many overseas attacks....One pressure cooker maker, the Fagor Group in Spain, said that it has been contacted by U.S. investigators and that company officials are extending full cooperation. The company sells 250,000 pressure cookers a year in the U.S. and 1 million worldwide.
BAGHDAD (AP) — Iraqi authorities say a suicide bombing in a Baghdad cafe has killed 22 people and wounded 35 others.Iraqi police said that the deadly attack took place Thursday night when a suicide bomber set off his explosive belt inside a cafe full of customers in western Baghdad.Police said that two children and a woman were among the dead.Hospital officials confirmed the casualties. All officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters.Violence has been on the rise ahead of provincial elections set for Saturday.
Ah, now I'm hearing on Fox again about the smiley Saudi youth with the golden gun and that he is going to be deported, even though Big Sis said she didn't know anything about it. I can believe that.
Another picture. This time he's booking it out of there.leaving
Too bad you can't get a clear shot of his right shoulder in that 2nd pic. *Almost* looks like he's no longer carrying anything over that right shoulder.
Got a schnoze on him, don't he? He might not be quite as young as we thought.
Mark Furman speculated on Fox the schnoze might be a false schnoze, if a schnoze is a nose. Making him not at all concerned if he is photographed or not.
Fox News just reported that one Marathon bomber is in custody in a place called Watertown.According to the Boston Globe.Who knows?
Facts are hard to come by tonight. FBI is now saying not related as far as they know.Certainly a lot of flashing lights.
Now it seems black cap is dead at a hospital of gunshot wounds, and white cap is on a real lam. Had lots of explosives. Some thrown out of a car.

MOSCOW | Thu Sep 24, 2009 5:27pm EDTRussia’s Chechen chief blames CIA for violence(Reuters) - The Kremlin-backed chief of Russia’s turbulent Chechnya region said his forces were fighting U.S. and British intelligence services who want to split the country apart, according to an interview published Thursday.Former rebel-turned-Moscow-ally Ramzan Kadyrov said in comments to Zavtra newspaper reprinted on his official website that he had seen the U.S. driving license of a CIA operative who was killed in a security operation he led.Chechen authorities have previously said insurgents following the radical Wahabist form of Islam receive support from international Islamist groups sympathetic to al-Qaeda, but have not accused the West of instigating violence."We're fighting in the mountains with the American and English intelligence agencies. They are fighting not against Kadyrov, not against traditional Islam, they are fighting against the sovereign Russian state," he said.The West sought to attack both Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin and the country as a whole by targeting the country's weakest regions, Kadyrov said in the comments republished prominently on www.chechnya.gov.ru.Kadyrov was appointed by Moscow as a bulwark against separatist rebels in the mainly Muslim province, but rights activists say he flouts federal laws and is himself responsible for much of the violence that has grown in recent months."The West is interested to cut off the Caucasus from Russia. The Caucasus - a strategic frontier of Russia. If they take away the Caucasus from Russia, it's like taking away half of Russia."Many Chechens have emigrated to Europe, Turkey, and Georgia and some have been recruited as insurgents, said Kadyrov.

I wonder how their favorite son, John Kerry is doing with his crusade against Syria and then Iran.?
Last week the Al Nusra Front, the military backbone of the US-sponsored Syrian opposition, openly swore its loyalty to Al Qaeda.Al Nusra leader Abu Mohammed al-Golani pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, the Egyptian-born cleric who served for many years as Osama bin Laden’s second-in-command.“The sons of Al Nusra Front pledge allegiance to Sheikh Ayman al-Zawahiri,” al-Golani said in a recorded message released last week. The statement also indicated that the Syrian terrorist group would merge with Al Qaeda in Iraq, from which Al Nusra has received personnel and training.Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the head of the Islamic State in Iraq, Al Qaeda’s affiliate in that country, said last week that his group would join with Al Nusra under the shared banner of “The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.”The Al Nusra Front (or Jabhat al-Nusra) became the most effective armed group in the US-backed Syrian opposition last year. Its cadres, Islamist militants recruited internationally with combat experience from other wars, have inflicted several defeats on Syrian government forces, while carrying out sectarian atrocities against minority groups and alleged regime sympathizers.The Free Syrian Army (FSA), the loose coalition of militias sponsored by Washington and its allies in their proxy war against the government of President Bashar al-Assad, issued a statement disavowing any formal ties with Al Nusra.“We don’t support the ideology of Al Nusra,” an FSA spokesman said. “There has never been and there will never be a decision at the command level to coordinate with Al Nusra.”This denial appears meaningless, however, as the FSA then admitted that it planned to continue co-operating with Al Nusra fighterson “certain operations.”Without Al Nusra, the FSA would have very limited fighting capabilities. In July 2012, the UK-based Guardian newspaper reported from within Syria that the FSA frequently relied on al-Nusra when fighting the Syrian army. In the piece, titled “Al-Qaeda turns tide for rebels in battle for eastern Syria,” FSA personnel said that they had called upon Al Nusra to carry out truck and car bombings, plant roadside bombs, and to supply fighters, small arms and ordnance.The FSA lacks a popular base of support, and appears to have little operational authority, within Syria. Rather, it is various sectarian and ethnic-based militias that carry out strikes against the Syrian regime, each for their own ends. Among these groups, it is Al Nusra that has proved to be the most deadly. Its militants, drawn to the Syrian war under the banner of Islamist jihad, are recruited from the ranks of Sunni extremist veterans of the wars in Chechnya, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Libya.
My theory is simple. Leave these people alone. Quit going to their countries. Quit blowing up their buildings. Quit killing them and their families. …and after a time, they will quit fucking with us.

Oh really, we didn’t fuck with the Russians in Afghanistan? We created the mushahadeen. The Serbs, we bombed over Kosovo supported by the mushahadeen? Friends come and go. Enemies accumulate.
In the two examples you point at, Deuce, the US was not fucking with "those people", we were aiding and abetting them. Militarily.But we fuck with "those people" incessantly, economically.How does the US government deal with that?
Britney Spears and Lynsey Lohan fuck with the culture of "those people" 24/7.How does the US government stop that?
Are we so stupid to think that these unnecessary US wars, military adventures and aggressions won’t have consequences?

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Dead Bombing Suspect: “I Don’t Have a Single American Friend"By David Weigel | Posted Friday, April 19, 2013, at 8:03 AM Police have identified Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, as the “black hat” bombing suspect, killed during the manhunt that followed. Readers have pointed out that Johannes Hirn made Tsarnaev the subject of a photo essay, "Will Box for Passport," taken before the boxer competed at National Golden Gloves competition in Salt Lake City. The captions give us a micro-profile of the suspect.Tamerlan, who studies at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston and wants to become an engineer, took the semester off from school to train for the competition.Tamerlan fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 90s, and lived for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee.Originally from Chechnya, but living in the United States since five years, Tamerlan says: “I don’t have a single American friend, I don’t understand them."If he wins enough fights... Tamerlan says he could be selected for the US Olympic team and be naturalized American. Unless his native Chechnya becomes independent, Tamerlan says he would rather compete for the United States than for Russia.Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: "God said no alcohol." A muslim, he says: “There are no values anymore,” and worries that “people can’t control themselves.”

Chechnya is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslem. To the dismay of the MSM, they ain't dumb asses white boys.
The Wahhabists are well entrenched in Chechnya.Been pestering the KGB boys runing Moscow since the Soviet Union went bankrupt.
Babies are not in the religion business.
They are victimized by it.
Not at all.Are not the female babies of the Islamoids victimized by their religion?Are not the Catholic choir boys, bent over the alter, victimized by their religion?Are not the babies infected with STDs during the Jewish circumcision ceremonies victimized by their religion?
That is choice.
Herpes is most often refered to as a STD.This particular baby was so victimized, it died.Baby’s Death Renews Debate Over a Circumcision RitualBy LIZ ROBBINSPublished: March 7, 2012Prosecutors are investigating the death of a newborn boy who died in September after contracting herpes through a controversial practice of ritual circumcision, reviving a debate in New York over safety and religious freedom.The Brooklyn district attorney, Charles J. Hynes, confirmed on Wednesday that the investigation was continuing, but declined to comment further.The cause of death of the 2-week-old boy, who died at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn on Sept. 28, was Type 1 herpes, caused by “ritual circumcision with oral suction,” according to the medical examiner’s office.
Baby so victimized by Judaism, it died. The ritual of oral suction — or in Hebrew, metzitzah b’peh — is practiced almost exclusively in ultra-Orthodox communities and, to a lesser degree, in Orthodox Jewish communities, despite efforts by the city to curtail it and educate communities about its health risks. The procedure occurs during the circumcision ritual of the bris, as the practitioner, or mohel, removes the foreskin of the penis and then sucks the blood from the wound to clean it.In 2003 and 2004, the city reported three cases of Type 1 herpes that were linked to circumcision, involving a boy on Staten Island and twin boys in Brooklyn, one of whom died. The procedures were done by one mohel, Rabbi Yitzchok Fischer, who was later prohibited from performing the ritual in New York City.
“There is probably nobody in public life who fights harder for the separation of church and state than I do, but I just wanted to remind everybody: religious liberty does not simply extend to injuring others or putting children at risk,” Mr. Bloomberg said. “And we will continue working with the community and others to prevent more baby boys from suffering these tragic fates.”
No, quote, it is a story of five children being victimized by archaic practices, not just one, whose victimization the authorities became aware of. Two of the babies died.Judaism will continue to victimize children“The Orthodox Jewish community will continue the practice that has been practiced for over 5,000 years,” Rabbi David Niederman of the United Jewish Organization in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, said at the time.“‘We do not change. And we will not change.”
That is “choice” . vulgar or rude: choice language
Comical, now quot& is comparing Orthodox Jewish Rabbis to horse fuckers.I always claimed an Israeli equivalency with their neighbors, but now quot& finds equivalence between traditional Rabbinic conduct and bestiality.Strange reactive behaviors are funny to watch.
Chechen militants have fought alongside al-Qaeda and the Taliban and possibly vice-versa. In Chechnya: From Nationalism to Jihad (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2008), James Hughes sheds some light on possible reasons that Chechen separatists might attack the United States:U.S. criticism of Russian policy in Chechnya intensified in the first six months of the [George H.W.] Bush presidency. [But the] 9/11 attacks led to a complete reversal of U.S. policy on Chechnya. This was partly a moral revulsion against the associations between some Chechen rebels and al-Qaida, and partly a concession by the U.S. to secure Russian support for its campaign against the Taliban regime in Afghanistan in 2002 and for the war in Iraq in 2003. … After 9/11, Putin’s framing of Chechnya as part of the “global war on terror” has been incorporated into Western policy approaches to Chechnya, and Chechen groups and leaders have been placed on the U.S. and UN lists of terrorist organizations.Cross-posted from the Foreign Policy in Focus blog Focal Points.
Alexander Vershbow, a U.S. ambassador to Russia, said shortly after September 11, 2001, "We have long recognized that Osama bin Laden and other international networks have been fueling the flames in Chechnya, including the involvement of foreign commanders like Khattab." Khattab was killed in April 2002.http://www.cfr.org/terrorism/chechen-terrorism-russia-chechnya-separatist/p9181

The Great Satan is simply the 'face' of modernity. A big fat target on which to focus the insecurities and inferiority of a failed culture and religion.
Nonsense. You ignore that we have been warring on these countries for ten years. I was in a meeting two weeks ago in New York with some businessmen who are Hassidic Jews. They refused to shake the hand of a Swedish woman who is a CFO for a Swedish company. How is that for modernity?
We've been warring on Afghanistan for twelve years, but they started it. Before that, we helped them get rid of the Russians. The original big mistake.
We probably let them in here as some kind of act of compassion for the suffering Chechen people.
Been pestering the KGB boys runing Moscow since the Soviet Union went bankrupt.A lot longer than that. See Leo Tolstoy: Hadji Murat.
There were no problems for the Soviets with the Chechnya while Stalin was running the show.He thought they had allied with Hitler, he had them pay the tab. Soviet leader Joseph Stalin accused the Chechens of cooperating with the Nazis and forcibly deported the entire population to Kazakhstan and Siberia. Tens of thousands of Chechens died, and the survivors were allowed to return home only after Stalin's death.
Stalin obviously didn't solve the problem, or Putin wouldn't have had to bomb the place to rubble.
The folks after Stalin, but before Putin, let 'em go back to the Caucasus Mountains.Probably Khrushchev.
But if the authoritative Communists of the Soviet Union and the KGB retreads now running Russia could not control the Chechnyans, well, the idea that the US can impose and "softly" maintain western political and economic systems upon their cousins, ludicrous.
You might well be right about that.

In letters to U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week, the two European governments said soil samples and interviews with witnesses and opposition sources supported claims that government forces had used the chemical weapons in and around the cities of Aleppo, Homs and possibly the capital, Damascus.Let's see, soil samples and the testimony of rebel sources. That should be convincing enough to up the ante as far as providing military support to the rebels.Did they interview govenment sources that say it was the rebels that used the chem weapons. Naw, they would only lie anyways.What about the government troops that were injured by the chemical weapons. Merely, a false flag charge.

“It was Hitler’s belief that the war from the air would terrorise London into defeat. He was wrong. The city’s inhabitants, on the contrary, took a perverse and particular pleasure from being the front line of the war. ‘We can take it’ became the catchphrase of the Blitz. ”Jon E Lewis, London: Every so often, London’s landscape becomes drastically transformed – and it’s not always of Londoners’ choosing. Just like the Great Fire nearly 300 years before, the Blitz during World War II totally decimated parts of the capital. This time, however, it was no accident. By September 1940, London had already experienced German bombing. But the Blitz started in earnest on the afternoon of 7 September when the German Luftwaffe filled the skies in the first major daytime raid on London. Nearly 350 German bombers (escorted by over 600 fighters) dropped explosives on East London, targeting the docks in particular. Around 450 people died and 1,300 were seriously injured.The night-time raids that followed were just as terrible and deadly. Night after night, for nearly two months, the bombers returned. The Strand, the West End and Piccadilly were attacked. St Thomas’s Hospital, St Paul’s Cathedral, Buckingham Palace, Lambeth Palace and the House of Commons were all hit. Between September and November, almost 30,000 bombs were dropped on London. In the first 30 days, almost 6,000 people were killed and twice as many badly injured.The most notorious raid took place on Sunday 29 December. The focus this time was the City of London. The area from Aldersgate to Cannon Street and Cheapside to Moorgate went up in flames. Nineteen churches, including 16 built by Christopher Wren after the Great Fire of London, were destroyed. Miraculously, however, St Paul’s survived. Of the 34 guild halls, 31 were decimated. And when Paternoster Row, centre of London’s publishing industry, was destroyed, around 5 million books were lost. In the end, around one third of the City was laid to waste. However, many of the main businesses streets, such as Cornhill and Lombard Street, suffered little damage and the Bank of England and the Stock Market were not hit.The air raids continued sporadically, with major raids on 16 and 19 April 1941. More than 1,000 people were killed on each night in various areas across the capital. Finally, on 10 May, bombs fell on Kingsway, Smithfield, Westminster and across the City, killing almost 3,000 and hitting the Law Courts, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, many of London’s museums and the House of Commons. The Blitz only ended in May 1941 when the German Luftwaffe were redeployed to take part in the invasion of Russia.

”The two bombs may have shaken Boston on Monday, but our spirit is in tact.We’re proud Bostonians – and the whole world has watched as we have risen stronger. President Barack Obama highlighted the Boston spirit on Thursday.“Your resolve is the greatest rebuke to whoever committed this heinous act. If they sought to intimidate us, to terrorize us, to shake us from those values that Deval described, the values that make us who we are, as Americans – well, it should be pretty clear by now that they picked the wrong city to do it. Not here in Boston. Not here in Boston,” he said.

Meanwhile back in Philadelphia:CNSNews.com) – On the last day of testimony before the prosecution rests in the murder trial of abortionist Kermit Gosnell, a former worker at Gosnell's clinic testified that she saw one late-term baby who survived an abortion "swimming" in a toilet and "trying to get out."Kareema Cross, a “medical assistant” who worked at Gosnell’s Women’s Medical Society clinic for four-and-a-half years, testified in a Philadelphia court today, telling of the horrors of babies who survived abortions only to have their necks snipped with scissors.“Did you ever see those babies move?” asked Prosecutor Joanne Pescatore.“Yes, once in the toilet,” said Cross.The baby “was like swimming,” she said. “Basically, trying to get out.”Adrienne Moton, an employee at the clinic, then took the baby and snipped the back of its neck while the mother was still in the room.

Secretary of State John Kerry plans to announce more non-lethal aid to Syrian rebels today at a meeting of groups fighting to oust President Bashar al-Assad, as U.S. lawmakers press the Obama administration to provide military help for the insurrection.The latest assistance could include humanitarian supplies, military vehicles, night-vision goggles and communications equipment, according to an administration official who asked not to be identified before the plan is announced. That type of aid falls short of the weaponry or military engagement sought by some Democratic and Republican members of Congress.Administration officials acknowledged in April 17 congressional testimony that efforts to unify the opposition’s political factions haven’t succeeded and that their understanding of rebel military forces has deteriorated as extremist groups fighting Assad, such as the al-Qaeda-linked al- Nusra Front, have gotten stronger. ...The same day, General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that, in distinguishing moderate rebel military groups from radicals, it’s “actually more confusing on the opposition side today than it was six months ago.”‘More Concerned’Dempsey had urged arming the opposition, along with former Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.“Now that we’ve seen the emergence of al-Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham, notably,” Dempsey said April 17, referring to Islamist groups, “and now that we’ve seen photographs of some of the weapons that have been flowing into Syria in the hands of those groups, now I am more concerned than I was before.”
Royce has prepared bipartisan legislation calling for the U.S. to arm Syrian rebels, while Levin and others have urged President Barack Obama to support the creation of safe zones along the Turkish border with Syria and the deployment of Patriot missile batteries “to neutralize” Syrian planes, Levin said April 17.“We must do more to tip the balance in favor of the Syrian opposition,” Royce said April 17.The Defense Department is assessing options for military intervention, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told Levin’s committee on April 17. The administration remains opposed to taking that step, because it could hinder humanitarian assistance, strain international alliances, pull the U.S. into a long military commitment, and “have the unintended consequences of bringing the United States into a broader regional conflict or proxy war,” Hagel said. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-19/kerry-to-offer-more-syrian-rebel-aid-as-lawmakers-push-for-arms.html
.Appropriate that Kerry would suggest that we will provide night visions lenses to the terrorists (sorry opposition forces) in Syria since possessing them is one of the criteria that can get you on a terrorist list here..
Interesting reading ...Boston Bombing Suspects Echo Home-Grown Terrorists in Madrid, London Attacks
Counterterror officials believe the brothers were Islamic extremists. And the information available so far suggests that they appeared to integrate well into U.S. society, yet slid into a spiral of Islamic radicalization with bloody results. The profile has similarities to the home-grown terrorists behind attacks in Madrid in 2004 and London in 2005, according to counterterror officials.... There are signs that the brothers showed interest in the conflict in Syria, which has drawn al Qaida fighters and other militants from across the Muslim world and Europe, according to a U.S. counterterror official. Like others interviewed for this story, the official requested anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the ongoing case.The brothers had viewed videos about the plight of Syrian Muslims, the official said. Syria is the latest hotspot on the world map of jihad. Holy warriors a decade ago were inspired by videos about brutal combat between jihadis and Russian troops in the brothers' family homeland: the predominantly Muslim region of Chechnya, a breeding ground for al Qaida fighters in the late 1990s and early 2000s. ... "It's like London, it's like Madrid in the radicalization," the counterterror official said. "These guys were produced by the international jihadist machine. The biggest thing is they were individuals willing to die. They were committed. There was interest in events overseas affecting Muslims. And a lot of Internet activity — the things that everyone in the counterterror community worries about."The brothers had traveled in recent years to Russia, officials said. Tamerlan returned via New York from a trip to Moscow in July 2012, according to a U.S. law enforcement official. But officials said nothing so far indicates recent travel to Chechnya, in southern Russia, or war zones where terrorist groups provide training and direction to Western recruits."The big question is, are they part of a bigger network or just two brothers who decided to do this and pulled it off on their own?"
.I was going to write a comment, but why bother?Just read the comments section attached to the article..
When this thread burns out. I am going to expand on the comment section that you refer to, specifically the late Chalmers Johnson.
This is worthy of a look:BrettToday, 5:35 p.m.@CharlieKFailed “somehow”? You don’t really know? Brush up on your American foreign policy history, and you’ll find out really quickly why there is a virulent strain of anti-americanism infecting impressionable young people around the world. Start with Chalmers Johnson, John Pilger, Robert Fisk, Noam Chomsky, Michael Parenti, George Galloway.. Or, better yet, read Osama bin Laden’s own words.Here’s one example: Allowing 500,000 Iraqi children in the 90s (which former Sec. Albright said was acceptable) to die from water contamination—preventable if we allowed chlorine to enter the country—might be something that people in that area would be a little upset over.Read and you will understand.
I guess we will never know what happened. Seems the cops set the boat on fire.

$300,000,000 economic loss due to business closings alone.
.Per victim (3,000 dead) cost of 9/11, independent of property and finacial losses associated with the initial event, merely from the subsequent WOT, a conservative estimate,Over a $ billion per victimTwice as many additional Americans dead as victims.15-20 times as many American casualties as victims.Some might argue it would be worth it 'pre-9/11' to prevent the tragedy.However, after the event, it is merely money and lives spent seeking revenge.Hard to justify it when you consider what we have actually achieved for the money and lives or on the other hand the opportunity costs, the value of what we could have done with that money had we used it more productively..
That’s $150,000,000 per pressure cooker.

.Life in Boston today from reports,City shut down, transportation systems shut down, schools closed, sports events cancelled, people ordered to stay in their houses, 9000 police on the streets, convoys of armored vehicles, homes peppered with bullets from firefights...One acccount...From The Post’s Mary Beth Sheridan: Watertown, Mass. — Samantha Piccaluga, a 23-year-old university student, said that at about 3:30 p.m. Friday, jittery police whipped out their guns and rushed toward a man who appeared to come out of a house on Dexter Street in Watertown, near where the shootings had occurred in the early morning. The neighborhood has been cordoned off by police, who have ordered residents to stay inside. “They’re yelling, ‘Why did you get out of your house,’” Piaccaluga said, as she watched the drama unfold from her upstairs window on nearby Nichols Avenue. Angry, cursing police were “in his face,” she said. They then slapped handcuffs on the man, who was about 40 years old and was wearing a T-shirt, she said, and then began interviewing him. Piccaluga had spent a sleepless night after violence that had unfolded near her doorstep. “I was sleeping — it was like 1 a.m. — and I heard pah pah pah pah pah. I went to my sister, I said I think it’s gunshots. She said, no its fireworks. Then I heard a boom … then I heard cop cars, to my street, and other streets. A lot of sirens. Then a lot of shooting again, pah pah pah pah,” she recounted by telephone. Heavily armed SWAT forces then swept into the neighborhood, she said. Police went door-to-door looking for a suspect in the Boston bombings. Early in the morning, she said, she saw officers bring a nude, handcuffed man down the street and put him into a patrol car. “He was completely naked, no underwear,” she said, adding that police brought the man a blanket. At around 4 a.m., the man was taken out of the car and apparently transferred away in an ambulance, she said. She said she did not know who the man was. Piccaluga said she, her sister and her uncle, who live with her, were terrified. “Oh, yeah. Us, we’re like really scared,” said Piccaluga. “My sister just gave birth three months go. The baby’s crying, we’re worried, we don’t understand,”.
He is alive and is in custody.
Ambulance pulling up.
Cheers and high fives.
I'd rather see him dead.
Our Justice system will respond and come to a conclusion in no time.

This one had it all - Bahston, Cops, Bahston Cops, Eastern Europeans, idiots that run around in their underwear, Muslims, idiot reporters, you name it.All the shit that makes me want to slit my wrists.And, in the end, they didn't even kill the asshole.
What's your source, Deuce?...it's more up to date than any I've found.
Do you have a TV?Turn it on.
Not hooked up.I'm safe.
I wanna know what this turkey knows. I say water board the son bitch. What's a little water up the nose? Do it before the terrorist chasing fucking lawyers demand he be read his constitutional rights. That's what I say.
Baby< i had this one nailed, right from the beginning. Did it all in my blue boxers and black fedora.
I knew who did it when the guy w/no legs ratted them out after staring them in the face back when he had two legs.
I had'em as brothers. Had the timeline for their immigration "pretty" close.Thought the older, dominant one might have had some military, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
Although, we'll have to see what he was up to in Russia. Might have dropped down to Chechniya for a little "training?"
I had 'em as Chechens. Rat had 'em as Jews from the Caucasus.We all done good, cept Rat.
I doubt there's all that much genetic difference between a "muzzie chechen, and a caucassus jew."
Maybe not genetic difference. There's not much difference between any humans genetically.Culturally, some of us live on different planets.

Boston Bombing Suspects’ Parents: Our Sons Were Set UpThe heartbroken parents of the Boston bombings suspects refuse to believe that their ‘angelic’ sons could possibly be cold-hearted killers. Here, read how they emotionally defend the sons they believe are innocent. First, the suspects’ father Anzor Tsarnaev called his son “a true angel.” Now, both Anzor and the suspects’ mother Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva are positive that their sons Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were set up by the secret service. Anzor Tsarnaev — Suspects’ Father Denies Sons Are Terrorists Anzor revealed that he thinks the secret service is behind it all, in an interview by the Russian Agency Interfax on April 19: I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is the [secret] service has framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe the [secret] service has framed my children. Anzor got extremely angry during an interview with The Associated Press, yelling, “leave me alone, my son’s been killed!” He explained that he spoke with Tamerlan right after the terrorist attack in Boston, asking him if he was ok. “Dad, do not worry, we did not go there. All are alive and well,” he said his son told him.
Hi There!Guy saw tarp was ripped, Checked out BoatTsarnaev was found in a boat in the yard of a home on Franklin Street, close to where he and his older brother engaged in a shootout with police nearly 24 hours earlier. Police could be heard calling to him to come out with his hands up. A neighbor told ABC News that the homeowner had discovered Tsarnaev when he saw blood on the outside of his boat and then lifted the cover to find a person inside.?
The crowd is cheering and applauding the police as they pull out.Haven't ever seen this before..
I've cheered "the police leaving," before. :)
:) hehI have no trouble at all believing that.
And wept when the police showed up.
Now Obama is going to stick his nose into it. Got to turn the attention to himself again. He might even take the credit.Will he utter the 'T' word?
Terror?He already hasThree days ago, get up to speed.WASHINGTON, APRIL 16, 2013, SOURCE: US POOL **NO RESALE for non-editorial purposes** SOUNDBITE 1Barack Obama (man), President of the United States (English, 16 sec): "This was a heinous and cowardly act and given what we now know about what took place, the FBI's investigating it as an act of terrorism. Any time bombs are used to target innocent civilians, it is an act of terror."
Dang, I heard him say that too, but forgot.The first time he spoke he didn't use the T word.I have no doubt he will use it tonight.Here we go, right now....
He uttered the T word, but we must be careful how we speak of groups.
On April 15th when bombs were used to target innocent civilians, it was not an act of terror.On April 16th, it was.Times change.
as in tsk, tsk?
Fox News is saying they are not reading him his Miranda Rights. Seems there is a 'public safety exemption' to it. Never heard of that before.
...the safety of the reader.Probly has a bomb up his ass.
Guess the source:"What no one who knew them could say was why the young men, immigrants of Chechnyan heritage, would set off bombs among innocent people. There was no shortage of theories — commentators speculated about radicalized young Muslims, angry Chechens and a host of other possible explanations. But by the end of the day they were still just theories. "...could it be the NY Times?
Certainly could be, and probably is. It just makes me scratch my head, why would they do such a thing? Could it be because of their book, and their culture? Naw, they seemed like such nice young men. I think it was the brutal effect of liberated women here that did them in. Simply unable to process it.And the alcohol too. And sitcoms, and game shows. It was all our fault, really.We should have burned down all our Churches and Synagogue when they washed up on our shores.Made them feel at home.
Elsewhere in the same paper:"Both brothers had a substantial presence on social media. On VKontakte, Russia’s most popular social media platform, Dzhokhar described his worldview as “Islam” and, asked to identify “the main thing in life,” answered “career and money.” He listed a series of affinity groups relating to Chechnya, where two wars of independence against Russia were fought after the Soviet Union collapsed, and a verse from the Koran: “Do good, because Allah loves those who do good.” "
President urges citizens not to read perps tweets:"Obama says there are still many unanswered questions about the Boston bombings, including whether the two men had help from others. He is urging the public to not rush to judgment about their motivations."Read more: Dzhokhar Tsar, second Boston Marathon suspect, arrested - NYPOST.com http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/shots_heard_in_watertown_Ksjbz6lkB83dxUiCUgs7OP#ixzz2QxzlJ0xW
Probly got motivated after watching Rocky and Bullwinkle."Dzhokhar amazingly managed to escape on foot after mistakenly running over his shot brother with a black SUV — triggering an unprecedented lock-down of Boston and surrounding areas. During that manhunt, his and his brother’s fascination with “jihad” videos on social media and following the preaching of a firebrand cleric came to light."

I’ll tell you the twitter feed on this thing was ahead of every paper, TV and Drudge. Cops tweeting. Tweeters following police radios. Russians translating the Russian social media. Scary really.
