Only a few days have lapsed since being rocked by the news that bombs were planted at the Boston Marathon. If I have not done so, then my sympathy to the relatives of all the families that have had loved ones killed or injured. My thoughts are with them. The purpose of this post is an attempt to deflect the lies of the left-wing media as they attempt to slime conservative people once again.
The first thing I note is that the LSM wasted no time bringing up the Oklahoma City bombing as well as the death of so many Branch Davidians at Waco Texas. The two events are linked together, and yet it is strange that they do not mention the other event which was at Ruby Ridge. Upon reflection I got the impression that members or the LSM were attempting to rewrite the Waco event to make it look like it was a bombing or something like that, when in fact the fire that killed so many people was the result of action taken by the FBI.
The Branch Davidians under David Koresh came under the category of a cult. There was a religious component, and they called themselves Christians. They were in fact an offshoot of the Seventh Day Adventists, which is an offshoot of the Baptists. (if you look back in time you will see how it all works back to the Baptists). This cult was also extreme in its libertarian approach to matters pertaining to government. (At this point in time I have forgotten the exact name that is applied to the group of people who are so extreme in their libertarian ideals that they totally reject government. I first came across them when some people were highlighting the deaths of two members of a separate group in a police shoot out – one of them was 16 years old, but he was the one who killed the police officer in a separate incident on the same day).
Now I am not up with everything that happens in the USA, and my memory tends to get hazy, and in this case one needs to look at why the FBI took an interest in David Koresh. It seems that the Branch Davidians had been placed on some kind of extremist list because of their gun ownership. From what I understand there were two issues: guns and taxes. The FBI had come after David Koresh and there was a 2 week stand off. On the day that the seige ended, there had been a fire, probably caused by those present firing smoke bombs into the compound. If one considers the whole of the events it is not possible to place Waco as some kind of terrorist event. It was not…. but Timothy McVeigh had witnessed some of what had taken place in Waco and it had gotten him very angry. I do think that McVeigh became the victim of others from the POV that the other people were prepared to harness his anger at the government to commit an evil act. He was not a victim in any other sense.
The next incident prior to the Oklahoma City bombing was at Ruby Ridge, and again there was a shoot out, with Janet Reno being the one who had approved the action against the people involved in that incident. This was the other incident that had gotten Timothy McVeigh very angry.
It is worth noting that the Oklahoma City bombing and the event in Waco happened in April. There is no real connection to Patriots Day which is celebrated in Boston as a local event…. in fact there is no connection at all…
Yet, the LSM i.e. people such as Wolf Blitzer have taken up the idea that somehow there is a connection because the Boston Massacre happened on Patriots Day. That link is just too tenuous, especially when the LSM has never discussed the fact that there was a third co-conspirator involved in the Oklahoma City bombing and that this person who was never charged was very likely an Iraqi who had links to Saddam Hussein….. hmm… was there another reason as to why George Bush was so keen to get rid of Saddam Hussein? I am only thinking out aloud and not suggesting anything, but I am prepared to speculate with my thoughts out loud…
How does this tie in with the events that occurred this week? There is speculation that the bombing was that of a “lone wolf”. This is suggested as a means of deflecting away from the possibility that this was a jihad attack. Keep in mind that nobody has claimed responsibility for the attack. It is very weird. However, I doubt the “lone wolf” story, unless it is the same as Nidal Hassan, the Fort Hood jihadi and murderer. He was a “lone wolf”. He acted alone but he was a jihadi who had been influenced by the late Anwar al-Awlaki.
There is a lot that is open to question including the taking into custody of a young Saudi Arabian student who had been injured. Now, in my country, placing the man in handcuffs is more or less considered as an arrest, so I do in fact see that he was arrested, not as the authorities have since claimed that there was no arrest. I do not know if he was directly involved, but he was on the scene and he was injured, and he did run away from the scene – so it is fair to point a finger in his direction. On top of that the FBI searched the residence where he was staying with his consent and they took away quite a lot of material from that residence, including what to me looked like electrical wiring. One more thing to note about this Saudi, and that is: members of his clan in Saudi Arabia have been involved with Al Qaeda. From that point of view alone, yes he is a security risk. It is rumoured that he is to be deported from the USA.
There are some photographs that are currently being circulated. It could be that what we are seeing is circumstantial evidence, but it looks to me like there were at least 3 men involved. I have to note here that two bombs went off, and on the day there was talk of at least 3 packages that were suspicious that were taken care of… in that situation with backpacks being abandoned, it is possible that the information was not correct, or it could be that we are seeing yet another cover-up in action…. I am tending towards the alternative view after seeing the photos.
What do I think? Well if it was jihad, and as far as I am concerned the IED that was used has all the hallmarks of a jihadi, then this little cell had been operating under the radar for quite a while. I do not agree with the home grown theory. I continue to think that it was a jihad attack that was “lone wolf”.
Update: Why is Janet Napolitano being so coy about the impending deportation of the Saudi Arabian student? Are we seeing the beginnings of yet another cover up from the amateurs in the White House?
