    Just unusual. He generally denies that terrorism exists under his beneficent rule...

    I heard today that it was a high-capacity pressure cooker, the kind the military uses to feed troops.

    A new definition! Collateral damage is the death any non-combatant behind which a coward hides. What is your definition of asymmetric warfare?

    Did you NEED Obama to tell you officially yesterday that it was a terrorist attack? What difference does the timing make?

    I would say when investigating.....one would look to method and by whom. Whom has the attacks within the same methodology. First Impressions would point to ME groups and or those who believe in them. Hence some speculating as to that region first. That's not to say it is......just that under what is known at this is time points in that direction.

    This is more the RW anti political correctness BS. On one hand they get all worked up because Obama is supposedly so politically correct he wont offend the Muslims, yet on the other hand they get almost as worked up when obama vaporizes a terrorist with a drone. i dont see how it makes any difference what you call them, but it is something the RW blogosphere goes on about. More stupid. Remeber the debates when they said Obama did not call something terrorism?

    We should certainly limit size of pressure cooker available, I don't see why anyone would need more than 5 cups. Also, there should be no fully automatic pressure cookers which could be programmed to go off at any time some terrorist would want.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    There were other Bombs that were suppose to go off. They didn't. Who knows what more damage would have been done. Or if the medics would have even been alive to respond. When they showed the overhead on CNN. It looked like it was set to be like a line attack. One on each end and in the middle. The WSJ was reporting the police found 5.

    I girl ( 5 or 6 ) was branded a terrorist for threatening to shoot someone with a hello kitty bubble gun ... So I do believe they would label this as a terrorist act .
