      Well, as I noted on the day of the bombing:

      "Perhaps we'll never know who dunnit on this one. One path of inquiry might be "Who would profit from this sort of terrorism?".

      Amongst those who'll profit most are supporters of greater loss of our freedom, more State intrusion into every aspect of our lives, Martial Law, Police State, dictatorial tyranny, One World State, etc..

      Now, who do you suppose are the folks supporting that sort of "solution"?

      Yep."

      ... & to Bonnie the next day:

      "Several possibilities, Bonnie:

      1--"Routine" crazy person (created by a lifetime of State-controlled schools & media) ... except that "they" are finding more, un-exploded bombs & the possibility of a more sophisticated planned attack.

      2--Revenge/retribution attack by folks who hate Americans due to the USG terrorist activities world-wide in the last many decades.

      3--CIA/FBI or whatever false-flag as you've noted.

      Whichever, the USG will not let a good crisis go to waste. they'll be imposing more Draconian controls over every aspect of our lives ... and the dumbed-down, complacent, compliant willing-slaves will support the tyranny in the name of false security & "protecting the children", etc..

      --bob"

      Now, 4/18, the puppet media follows the plan, as noted in the two articles below.

      You've noticed that part of the plan to disarm us subjects, in addition to attempting to ban guns, is to ban (or regulate/tax out of existence) ammunition manufacture and sales). Now, to prevent folks who re-load spent cartridges, they must ban black powder & now they have created the link 'twixt black powder and the killing/maiming of lots of innocent women & children in Boston.

      Next, we'd expect steps to make purchase of saltpeter & sulfur difficult or impossible, since people could make black powder with those two ingredients, plus charcoal.

      we live in interesting times.

      Boston Blame Game
      Posted By Matthew Vadum On April 17, 2013
      As speculation continues to rage over who bombed the Boston Marathon, the Left has been doing its best to paint its enemies in the Tea Party as the likely perpetrators without any evidence whatsoever.
      Some left-wing commentators hedged in their statements, acknowledging that nobody knows for sure who was behind the attack, the first bombing of a U.S. target since 9/11, but those pundits tended to receive little media attention.
      Obama senior advisor David Axelrod refused to let this crisis go to waste. He acknowledged there was very little hard evidence at the moment but went on to suggest on TV that the deadly bombing at the marathon’s finish line Monday had something to do with people who are upset about taxes.
      “And I’m sure what was going through the president’s mind is — we really don’t know who did this,” Axelrod said. “It was Tax Day.”
      MSNBC talking head Chris Matthews blamed those on the Right, stating incorrectly that, “Normally, domestic terrorists, people tend to be on the far right.” Rep. William Keating (D-Mass.) played along on the TV show, also suggesting the bombing could have something to do with Tax Day.
      “Now, we have an international event, the marathon, the oldest marathon,” Keating said. “And we also have Tax Day, April 15, so we don’t know if that’s the kind of symbol a domestic terrorist might use as well.”
      While former Congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.), architect of laws and financial regulations that are contributing to the downfall of America, didn’t speculate about the identity of the bomber or bombers, he did use the bombing as an opportunity to argue in favor of big government.
      He praised the “seamless cooperation” by authorities in Boston as they deal with the aftermath of the attack. The retired socialist demagogue smeared those on the Right by intimating that conservatives want to abolish first-responder services — or something.
      “Again, I never was as a member of Congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. No tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. This is very expensive. At a time like this, no one thinks about saving pennies.”
      Frank did not point out that no matter how big the government gets, Americans will never be completely safe from terrorism.
      While it’s possible the bombing is the fruit of a right-wing terrorist plot, this seems unlikely.
      Right-wing terrorist attacks have been rare in the U.S. in recent years while Islamic and left-wing terrorist activity (including animal rights and eco-terrorists) have been on the upswing.
      Anarchists tried to blow up the GOP national convention in Minnesota in 2008.
      The violent “Occupy” movement has inspired waves of violence in the U.S. and worldwide. Last year Occupy Wall Street-affiliated activists tried to bomb a bridge in Cleveland and two Greenwich Village OWS supporters were arrested after being found in possession of high explosives.
      Which brings us to Timothy McVeigh, a bogeyman who is frequently raised in discussions of domestic terrorism. Executed in 2001 for bombing the Oklahoma City federal building in 1995, he was not right-wing, despite relentless media propaganda to the contrary.
      McVeigh didn’t say much about his personal beliefs but he was an agnostic who described science as his religion and an animal rights supporter. He attempted to join the militia movement but was rejected. He said he planted bombs because he was outraged by the federal government’s grotesque mishandling of the 1993 Waco siege. Although the Left paints McVeigh as a racist, most of the 76 dead in Waco were minorities so it doesn’t seem like an atrocity a racist would be incensed by.
      In any event, a Heritage Foundation report from a year and a half ago found that 40 terrorist plots in or aimed at the U.S. had been foiled since Sept. 11, 2001. Almost all of the 40 were instances of would-be Islamic terrorism.
      “While all categories of terrorist attacks against U.S. targets at home and overseas have been declining steadily since 2005, thwarted plots have more than doubled during the same period, showing that terrorists continue to plan to harm the United States and its people.”
      Of course the Heritage report does not include the 2009 jihadist massacre at Fort Hood reportedly perpetrated by self-described “soldier of Allah,” Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan. The Obama administration continues to dishonestly label the Islamist killing spree “workplace violence.”
      Much to the chagrin of Islamist apologists and Tea Party haters, there is at least some reasonable evidence that the attack could have been jihad-related, the much more realistic threat America faces.
      Counter-terrorism expert Larry C. Johnson said that the bombs, reportedly pressure cookers containing ball bearings, were about “a six” on a scale of zero to 10 in terms of quality.
      “This means somebody did the prior planning. They knew how to develop the devices. They were able to set the timers in such a way they didn’t detonate beforehand and detonated close enough to each other. This has been a hallmark of al-Qaeda.”
      There may also be a Saudi connection to the bombing in Boston.
      Saudi visa student Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi was hospitalized after being injured in the blast on Monday. Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s most significant terrorist-producing nations and was home to 15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers. According to the often-conflicting media reports accumulating, first Alharbi was a “suspect,” then he was downgraded to “person of interest,” and finally to “witness.” But in the circumstances this doesn’t mean Alharbi is cleared of all wrongdoing.
      Investigators reportedly hauled away bags of his possessions after searching his apartment. Witnesses don’t normally have their homes searched or their personal belongings far from the crime scene seized by police. No matter what words they use, investigators appear to still be interested in Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi. Time will tell if he has any connection to the events in Boston.
      And it is important to note that even if the Boston bombing ends up having nothing to do with jihad, it’s clear from the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last September 11 that Islamists still seek to do great harm to innocent Americans. We can’t afford to let our guard down.
      Meanwhile, officials intercepted an envelope yesterday that tested positive for the super-lethal poison ricin at the U.S. Capitol’s off-site mail-processing center in Washington, D.C., CNN reports.
      The letter was addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.).
      As Congress deals with highly contentious gun control and immigration bills, the Left, which is always anxious to blame its enemies for everything bad that happens in America, will undoubtedly admonish any jumping to conclusions about this attempt on a Republican lawmaker’s life.

      Video Points Investigators Toward Suspect in Boston Bombings
      By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE and MICHAEL COOPER

      BOSTON — Investigators have found video footage of a man who they believe may have planted the deadly bombs at the Boston Marathon, a person briefed on the matter said Wednesday, saying that they had pinpointed the image on video that was captured shortly before the blast.
      The possible break in the case came as investigators have pored over scores of videos and photographs that they solicited from surveillance cameras from nearby businesses, smartphone-wielding marathon spectators and television crews who were filming the Boston Marathon when the deadly blasts went off on Monday near the finish line. The revelation of the video footage was the first sign that the authorities might be moving closer to discovering who was behind the attacks, which killed three people and injured more than 170.
      As the Boston investigation went into a third day, there were signs that the nation was jittery, and on high alert. New York City officials said there had been an increase of reports of suspicious packages. In Oklahoma City, City Hall was briefly evacuated Wednesday morning as the authorities examined a stolen rental truck that was parked outside, just a few days shy of the anniversary of the 1995 bombing of the nearby Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. (There was no bomb, officials there said.) And in Washington, parts of two Senate office buildings were shut down as officials investigated reports of suspicious letters or packages, and the Secret Service said that a letter addressed to President Obama, containing a suspicious substance, had been intercepted at a screening facility outside the White House.
      In Boston, meanwhile, the third fatality of the blast was described as a young woman whose ambitions and hard work took her from her rust-belt hometown in northeast China to graduate studies at Boston University.
      The woman was identified as Lu Lingzi by a classmate, a Chinese university official and a state-run newspaper in her home city. Ms. Lu, 23, had moved to Boston to study statistics at Boston University after studying international trade at the Beijing Institute of Technology, according to a résumé that was posted online. In her hometown, Shenyang, the Shenyang Evening News, the state-run newspaper that announced her death, darkened its Web site in honor of a “Shenyanger who passed away in a far away place.”
      The three people killed in the blast were a cross-section of Boston, brought together seemingly at random to watch one the city’s proud traditions, the marathon. There was Ms. Lu, one of the thousands of international students drawn to the area’s universities. There was Martin Richard, a vivacious 8-year-old third grader from a well-loved family in Dorchester, a tight-knit community. And there was Krystle Campbell, 29, of Arlington, Mass., a hard-working woman known for her sense of humor who had started working at restaurants as a waitress in high school and now worked as a restaurant manager. Boston prepared to mourn them at a service with President Obama on Thursday.
      More surgeries were scheduled for Wednesday for the victims of the bomb blasts, including eight at Boston Medical Center, officials said.
      A 5-year-old boy remained in critical condition Wednesday at Boston Medical Center, Dr. Peter Burke, the chief of trauma services at the hospital said at a morning briefing. He was one of 19 patients who remain there, he said, and one of two who were in critical condition — down from 10 who were in critical condition on Tuesday.
      “I’m very optimistic,” Dr. Burke said, adding that it was possible that another patient or two could be discharged Wednesday. “I will not be happy until they’re all home,” he said.
      Three children who were injured in the blast remained at Boston Children’s Hospital on Wednesday, the hospital announced: a 2-year-old boy with a head injury was listed in good condition, while a 10-year-old boy and a 9-year-old girl, both with leg injuries, were in critical condition.
      A piece of the lid of one of the pressure cookers that investigators believe were used as explosive devices in the bombings was found on a rooftop near the blast, a law enforcement official said on Wednesday — giving a sense of the tremendous force of the explosion. Law enforcement officials said that the bombs were most likely rudimentary devices made from ordinary kitchen pressure cookers, except they were rigged to shoot sharp bits of shrapnel into anyone within reach of their blast and maim them severely, law enforcement officials said Tuesday.
      The pressure cookers were filled with nails, ball bearings and black powder, and the devices were triggered by “kitchen-type” egg timers, one official said.
      The resulting explosions sent metal tearing through skin and muscle, destroying the lower limbs of some victims who had only shreds of tissue holding parts of their legs together when they arrived at the emergency room of Massachusetts General Hospital, doctors there said.
      Law enforcement officials said the devices were probably hidden inside dark nylon duffel bags or backpacks and left on the street or sidewalk near the finish line. Forensic experts said that the design and components of the homemade devices were generic but that the marking “6L,” indicating a six-liter container, could help identify a brand and manufacturer and possibly lead to information on the buyer.
      Details about the explosives emerged as President Obama announced that the F.B.I. was investigating the attack as “an act of terrorism,” and made plans to travel to Boston on Thursday for an interfaith service at the Cathedral of the Holy Cross.
      But officials said they still had no suspects in custody and did not give the impression that they were close to making an arrest as they repeatedly noted that the investigation was in its infancy.
      “The range of suspects and motives remains wide open,” Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.'s Boston office, said at a televised briefing on Tuesday afternoon. And, he added, no one has claimed responsibility.
      At this stage of an inquiry, officials said it was not unusual for there to be no suspects. But with the paucity of leads, Mr. DesLauriers and others pleaded with members of the public to submit any photographs or video they may have taken at the blast site to help in the investigation. At the briefing, Mr. DesLauriers said that someone somewhere almost certainly heard a mention of the marathon or the date of April 15.
      “Someone knows who did this,” he said. “Cooperation from the community will play a crucial role.”
      Officials said they had received more than 2,000 tips from around the world. As marathoners left through Logan Airport on Tuesday, security personnel reminded them of the importance of sharing their pictures with the F.B.I.
      Counterterrorism specialists said the authorities would aim to match the faces of any possible suspects, using facial recognition software, against an array of databases for visas, passports and drivers’ licenses. “It’s our intention to go through every frame of every video that we have to determine exactly who was in the area,” Edward Davis, the Boston police commissioner, said at the news briefing. “This was probably one of the most well-photographed areas in the country yesterday.”
      Given the force of the blasts, doctors at area hospitals said that the death toll could have been much higher but that the triage teams at the blast site had done a good job of sending the victims to the hospitals capable of handling them.
      “The distribution worked wonderfully,” said Dr. Stephen K. Epstein, attending emergency physician at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. “It was very easy to match the number of patients to the resources available at each of the hospitals.”
      The scale of the attack and the crude nature of the explosives, coupled with the lack of anyone claiming to have been the perpetrator, suggested to experts that the attacker could be an individual or a small group rather than an established terrorist organization.
      “This could have been a one-person job,” said Bruce Hoffman, a terrorism specialist at Georgetown University. “That makes it much harder to track. When we catch terrorists, it’s usually because they’re part of a conspiracy and they’re communicating with one another.”
      “It will have to go through a many tests to see what they can glean further and identify where it was produced and sold, and then look at it forensically,” a law enforcement official said. Officials said on Tuesday that evidence from the scene was being shipped to labs in Quantico, Va. Fox News showed pictures that it said were from the crime scene that showed a chunk of a somewhat pulverized stainless steel pressure cooker, with its UL number visible.
      Steven Bartholomew, a spokesman for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said that the blast was powerful enough to toss debris on top of buildings. “Some of that debris got projected on top of buildings, and embedded in buildings in that finish line area, so that tells us we have a lot of work to do,” Mr. Bartholomew said.

      Katharine Q. Seelye reported from Boston, and Michael Cooper from New York. Reporting was contributed by John Eligon, Mary Pilon, Richard A. Oppel Jr. and Jess Bidgood from Boston; Scott Shane, Eric Schmitt, Mark Landler and Michael S. Schmidt from Washington; William K. Rashbaum from New York; and Chris Buckley in Hong Kong.

How sad for you to be so right and yet so wrong when it was an immigrant that found himself in position to effect disarmament of American population. What a shame he was of socialist schooling.
