    Why would you say that? Now THAT is silly, to ignore a possible terror threat?

    I don't know what you are asking. What I'm saying is that these two young dumbasses got the recipe off the internet, did what they did, and their dorm buddies tried to hide the evidence. This is all a far cry from those who instantly ran to a theory that it was al quaeda themselves or Saudi sponsored or was due to highly trained people. You had Glenn Beck... who is probably still pushing this massive MASSIVE conspiracy theory and people on this forum who lapped that crap right up.

    I think the whole thing was simply too stupid and random to be a legit organized effort. I also think it is too big to be just a moron who convinced his little brother. Even the friends cleaning up the room has a bizarre tint to it. I think the older brother was a moron being used by an organization to conduct a test run. He was told to try to get his roomates to clean up the room just to see if such was possible (it turns out, it was). In sum: this was a test run utilizing a moron to see what would happen.

    Look at all these enemy soldiers. . .

    168 children killed in drone strikes in Pakistan since start of campaign - Telegraph

    Of course, the families of all those killed don't feel bad because the gummint that killed them claimed they were "collateral damage."

    As long as you call those you kill "collateral damage", the killing isn't terrorism.

    They don't care about our government or our politics. They care about Islamic fundamentalism.
    Wonder how the US gummint id's members of AQ. Do AQ members carry an ID card w/them showing rank and position in AQ?

    The AQ marching band is not as good as the AQ color guard.

    So the individuals killed in the Boston bombing were responsible for those policies? That's why they were targeted?

    Well, I would think it would be like with their scarfes.....kinda like the bangers do with bandanas. Although I don't know if they would do so with cells.

    Although if they are AQ members thought to be Bombers. They say there is a way to identify them.....evidenced.

    How Can You Tell Someone Is al-Qaida? Look at His Watch

    It's a simple, water-resistant digital watch that retails for about $11. But beware: It could sell you out as al-Qaida.

    A new batch of WikiLeaks files from Guantanamo Bay reveals a secret checklist U.S. investigators used to figure out whether detainees were really al-Qaida members. Among the criteria was the kind of wristwatch they were wearing.

    The U.S. military lists the Casio F-91W model -- a cheap plastic watch available all over the world -- as a "suspicious item" on par with military transceivers, satellite phones, huge wads of cash and secret notes from al-Qaida facilitators. According to a confidential document distributed to American interrogators at the Guantanamo Bay prison, the Casio model "is an indicator of al-Qaida training in the manufacture of improved explosive devices (IEDs)."

    "The Casio was known to be given to the students at al-Qaida bomb-making training courses in Afghanistan, at which the students received instruction in the preparation of timing devices using the watch," the document states.

    One-third of detainees captured while wearing the Casio watch "have known connections to explosives," it said

    The memo was used to train U.S. investigators on how to accurately gauge the threat level of certain detainees at the U.S. terror prison in Cuba. More than 50 reports about individual detainees mention the Casio watch, along with a slightly more expensive model, the A-159W, made of stainless steel.

    Well, for one thing the investigation isn't over yet. Are you saying you don't think this had anything to do with Islamic extremism? Did you see the interviews with the mother? In the article below, the boys' own uncle says he believes they were heavily influenced by the mother during a visit with her, and she seems to be an extremist herself.

    Here's an interesting article for you. Of course, none of this is confirmed but just a theory, and you really discount anything yet. How you can be so confident that they got a recipe off the internet and acted of their own accord, I don't know.

    Bombing suspects had training, lawmaker says

    That's a good possibility too.
