AP Carefully Avoids Mention Of Saudi Suspect

From a tight lipped Associated Press:

Feds seek suspects, motive in Boston bombings

By JIMMY GOLEN | April 16, 2013

BOSTON (AP) — The bombs that blew up seconds apart at the finish line of one of the world’s most storied races left the streets spattered with blood and glass, three dead, including an 8-year-old boy, more than 140 wounded and gaping questions of who chose to attack at the Boston Marathon and why.

Federal investigators said no one had claimed responsibility for the bombings [sic] one of the city’s most famous civic holidays, Patriots Day. But the blasts among the throngs of spectators raised fears of a terrorist attack.

And never mind that a 20 year old Saudi is being held under heavy police guard at an area hospital as "a person of interest." No, the AP points up "Patriots Day," in the hope of getting their readers to think of right-wingers.

President Barack Obama was careful not to use the words "terror" or "terrorism" as he spoke at the White House Monday after the deadly bombings, but an administration official said the bombings were being treated as an act of terrorism.

How generous of them.

"We will find out who did this. We’ll find out why they did this," the president said. "Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups, will feel the full weight of justice."

Just like he has done with Benghazi.

The Pakistani Taliban, which has threatened attacks in the United States because of its support for the Pakistani government, on Tuesday denied any role in the marathon bombings.

The group’s spokesman, Ahsanullah Ahsan, denied involvement in a telephone call with The Associated Press. He spoke from an undisclosed location…

You see? So this can’t possibly be related to Muslim terrorism.

WBZ-TV reported late Monday that law enforcement officers were searching an apartment in the Boston suburb of Revere. Massachusetts State Police confirmed that a search warrant related to the investigation into the explosions was served Monday night in Revere, but provided no further details.

Some investigators were seen leaving the Revere house early Tuesday carrying brown paper bags, plastic trash bags and a duffel bag…

The Saudi is reported to live in Revere. In fact, several media reports say it is his (ocean front) apartment that was searched. But the AP studiously voids mentioning any of that.

The Boston Marathon is one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious races and about 23,000 runners participated. The race honored the victims of the Newtown, Conn., shooting with a special mile marker in Monday’s race.

Boston Athletic Association president Joanne Flaminio previously said there was "special significance" to the fact that the race is 26.2 miles long and 26 people died at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

One of the city’s biggest annual events, the race winds up near Copley Square, not far from the landmark Prudential Center and the Boston Public Library. It is held on Patriots Day, which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution, at Concord and Lexington in 1775…

We strongly suspect all of these details are being mentioned to suggest that right-wingers are involved. That is how our one party news media works.

With scant official information to guide them, members of Congress said there was little or no doubt it was an act of terrorism.

"We just don’t know whether it’s foreign or domestic," said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security…

You see? Even Republicans think it could be a domestic terrorist.

A few miles away from the finish line and around the same time, a fire broke out at the John F. Kennedy Library. The police commissioner said that it may have been caused by an incendiary device but that it was not clear whether it was related to the bombings…

Oh, it "may have been caused by an incendiary device." But perhaps we’ll never know.

The bombings occurred about four hours into the race and two hours after the men’s winner crossed the finish line. By that point, more than 17,000 of the athletes had finished the marathon, but thousands more were still running.

The attack may have been timed for maximum carnage: The four-hour mark is typically a crowded time near the finish line because of the slow-but-steady recreational runners completing the race and because of all the friends and relatives clustered around to cheer them on…

Or, the bombers might have thought that by this time the race would have been completely over, and the streets would be thronged with runners and their families and spectators.

    Yup, the media is now becoming much more pro-active in preventing any negative press about ragheads than ever before. This accomplishes two things: 1) Allows the media time to further drum “right-wingers” into the picture and 2) Gives them room to maneuver more distractions into our faces, eyes and ears.

    Once the truth emerges, that it was the (wealthy) Saudi post-adolescent in question, it will have been buried by arguments about birth-control or green energy.

    From the beginning, back in the 60’s, terrorist acts were committed by muslim males between the ages of 17-35. That continues to be the trend today. Whether our local national socialists are trying to appease them or co-opt them into assisting with the destruction of a conservative America makes no difference, although either supposition will end up with them reaping the whirlwind. However, their odd desire to avoid the truth is evident here.

    And….the 20 year old Saudi is but one operative. The others are either on their way back to Saudi Arabia or are already there, having left for the airport after their part was completed. And…interestingly enough, they’ll be back; Allowed access to the air-travel and a visa to come back here and do it again.

    Remember Moo-hammid Atta? How about all the other muslims who came here on Saudi visas who ended up flying airplanes into the towers? They KNOW we’re weak on terrorism and they politicize any and all attempts to keep them out.

    They win, we lose.

      Rusty: “Remember Moo-hammid Atta?”

      If memory serves, Mohamed Atta was an illegal alien (visa overstay).

      He sought to improve himself through valuable education at Huffman Aviation. If only we had reforms giving undocumented Saudis a path-to-citizenship, then his education and skills might have been retained here in the United States, and . . . oh, wait.

      Well, it seems the regime’s relaxation of visa restrictions for Saudis is already paying dividends. We didn’t have to wait long, did we?

    Must have been some of those Amish toughs who did it. Or Mennonite gangs competing over turf for selling un-Pasteurized milk.
