    So far this is been made about Obama, terrorism, gun-antigun, bizarre IED's - all we need is drones, rendition and water boarding and we're there.

    What we need is to have a national discussion on the issue.
    Providing, of course, that we remain within politically correct boundaries.

    Incoming from Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood.



    Dr. Essam el-Erian, a representative of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, has apparently turned to his Facebook page to put out some confounding commentary about Monday's tragic bombing at the Boston Marathon.

    According to an English translation, el-Erian expressed sympathy for the American people, but then purportedly connected the bombings to other incidents that have unfolded in the Middle East of late.

    The tone was conspiratorial in nature, as the note connected global events and wondered who is planting Islamophobia. Here's how Foreign Policy's Passport blog frames the message:

    A common criticism of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood has always been that it delivers one message in English to an international audience, and another message entirely in Arabic to its domestic audience. If anyone is ever looking for an example of this, they need to look no further than the Islamist organization's reaction to the bombing of the Boston Marathon.

    In English, the Brotherhood's political party released a statement "categorically reject[ing] as intolerable the bombings committed in the U.S. city of Boston," and "offer[ing] heartfelt sympathies and solemn condolences to the American people and the families of the victims."

    In Arabic, senior Brotherhood leader and the vice chairman of the group's political party Essam el-Erian took a different tack. In a post on his Facebook page, he condemned the Boston attack -- but also linked it to the French war in Mali, the destruction in Syria and Iraq, and faltering rapprochement between the Turkish government and Kurdish rebels.

    And he didn't end there. While one might be confused as to what he is alluding to throughout the Facebook post, at the end of his writings it becomes clear: He's looking for someone -- mainly a group -- to blame for what he sees as potentially-coordinated unrest in the Middle East.

    "Who disturbed democratic transformations, despite the difficult transition from despotism, corruption, poverty, hatred, and intolerance to freedom, justice tolerance, development, human dignity, and social justice?," el-Erian asked. "Who planted Islamophobia through research, the press, and the media? Who funded the violence?"

    It's difficult to tell who the Muslim Brotherhood official is blaming for the unrest. But his claims also caught the attention of The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg, who called them "bizarre."

    We'll leave you with el-Erian's full statement, below (as per mbinenglish.com):.....snip~

    I just find it odd that President Obama can't call a duck a duck unless he's had time to get a feel for what the public thinks about it. So let's flip the question. Why not just call it a terror attack from the get go? What could it hurt?
    You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.For the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”

    No I say they go thru the motions and figure out who it is not.....then see what that leaves behind.

    URGENT - Family Guy Shows Boston Marathon, And A Terror Attack - Predictive Programming!! .


    An episode of the popular show Family Guy which was first aired less than a month ago eerily predicted the Boston Marathon bombings, depicting the main character detonating two bombs in addition to winning the marathon by killing the rest of the participants.

    Uh no...this is grade A BS....These two scene never happened together. They were put together by someone. Watch that entire episode and you'll see that they are unrelated within the cartoon.

    Re: Obama Says Boston Bombings an Act of Terrorism.....

    I think it is the repsonsiblity of those in charge to make accurate statements. Why is it soooo important to the right Obama uses the word terror as soon as something happens. It makes no difference what he says, what he does does. Why does the RW waste so much time on stupid meaningless stuff? he did not call it terrrorsim for 24 hours. Wow.

In fact, with television networks flogging the tragedy for every goddam ounce of viewership they can get, it was a good decision on the part of the White House to let things settle a bit.

    What difference does it make in the scheme of things to Joe and Jane Sixpack? Sure political partisan dickwits are going to try to play "Gotcha!" with exactly what Obama said, exactly when Obama said it, and exactly how Obama was sitting in the Oval Office when he was being briefed. NONE of that matters except to partisan pukes, most who have the brains of a large rabbit.
    Obama only needed.....wait until he hears from all he needs to on the issue then he declared it for what it was. Anything Prior to 911 the FBI always considered any bombings to be terrorist related anyways, then anything after 911 it was written into law that FBI would be the lead agency on Bombings.
