    Since when has this ever stopped anyone from reaching conclusions that mirror their thought processes or prejudices?

    I hope the government does not use this as an excuse to take away more freedoms/rights of law-abiding Americans in the name of security.

    These were pretty small bombs - relatively speaking.

    This sounds more like 1 or 2 whacko(s) then a determined, organized, terrorist attack.

    And I might have agreed with you if the person is question hadn't spent the rest of the thread leading up the that moment being a deploringly inhumane douche-bag making jokes about pictures of people who were horribly injured by the blast.

    He gets no quarter. Treat douche-bags like douche-bags, I always say.

    Among the dead is an 8 year old. Let's hope were waterboarding the hell out of this guy in custody if they know he's in on this.

    Right and killing a buncha folks, while they're watching a foot race, is a damn good way to scare the living crap out of people.

    We have no ideas as to the quality of construction. They went off, so that automatically puts their quality at good+.

    This was done by someone with some training.

    That's exactly what they're going to do.
