FBI Boston Marathon probe points to Mid-East terrorists with domestic support
Tuesday, the FBI admitted “a potential terrorist inquiry” was underway, although President Barack Obama, when he pledged justice for “the perpetrators,” carefully skirted the term “terror.” This recalls his administration’s refusal to brand as an act of terror the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, and the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens, although it was clearly the work of an al Qaeda element.
The first response to the explosions in Boston from Middle East itself came from Mohammad al-Chalabi the head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group, who said he’s “happy to see the horror in America…American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” he said. “Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there.”

Tuesday, April 16. What We Know and Don’t Know….
We know there were two bombs which were detonated about 14 seconds apart from each other at or near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Scores of people were injured and three people are now dead. Mayhem ensued and as always, in the immediate aftermath of similar events, the reporting was at some times contradictory.
Was this an act of terrorism? So far the media has focused on a 20-year-old, Saudi National, who is being held for questioning. According to news reports the mans apartment has been searched. As of now, it’s to early to call this man a suspect.
DEBKA, has stated that the bombing has the fingerprints of Middle Eastern terror groups all over it. (See link above)
If the bombing was the work of one or two Moslem extremist then how do we protect against another attack? Do we eliminate all of our sporting events, have cross border checks between states, enforce a curfew, prohibit Middle Eastern people from emigrating here, deport everyone from known terrorist states?
During WWII we interred Japanese Americans, so we’ve employed draconian measures before. Will we do this again? Will we round-up those who might be deemed terrorist and put them into internment camps? Christian groups, specifically pro-life groups have been called terrorists by the Obama administration. Are some of us who believe life begins at conception also in this group? Will we be targeted as well? Obama Administration Calls Pro-Lifers Terrorists Again | LifeNews.com
Will the government use the tragedy of the Boston bombing, as the lever to reduce our freedoms in exchange for the illusion of security?
We don’t know the particulars surrounding the events in Boston. We don’t the motive behind this heinous act of cowardice. We don’t know who is responsible and what group or ideology they are linked to.
We, the people, don’t know how to stop the next act of senseless terror. We’ve seen the horrific acts of the OK City bombing, the Twin Towers Truck Bomb and of course 911. We’ve witnessed Waco, Columbine, Jared Loughner, the V-Tech shooter, the Batman shooter, and Sandy Hook rampages. The question is what do we do?
In my opinion, there really is no way to legislate against this. There is no way to stop the madness. There is no way for any government, any where to ensure our safety. That being said I’ll leave the unspeakable for last. Was this a false flag event? Let’s examine this clip from Family Guy. Why would anyone make this? What would be the purpose? If you look at the TV set behind Bob Costas you will see the car with Family Guy in it. Blow this up and look directly behind the car. There are bodies on the street and blood stains on the pavement. Why?

In closing todays post. My heart goes out to the people whose lives have been changed forever by the events of yesterday. This senseless act of cowardice serves as a gruesome reminder of the volatile, unpredictable world we live in. I’m taking a deep breath and will not form any conclusions until we get more of the facts. However, the Family Guy episode is chilling, and makes me wonder….
