Oh, fuck you, you leftist piece of shit.


[UPDATE BELOW] CNN's national security analyst Peter Bergen twice suggested that "right-wing extremists" could be behind Monday's Boston Marathon bombings.

Appearing on CNN's live coverage of the Boston Marathon bombing with host Jake Tapper, Bergen was asked to explain if the bombing could have been an act of terror. Bergen answered in the affirmative, and proceeded to name possible suspects depending on the type of explosive used. [Transcript below. Audio here. Video below the break.]
Who were Bergen's suspects?
Al Qaeda and "right-wing extremists."
[UPDATE: 4/15/13 5:04 p.m. EDT] Peter Bergen again tossed out the idea that a "right-wing extremist group" could have carried out the bombings.
"I think the actual – the constituency inside the bomb will make a big difference about how we identify the person who did this," he explained at the end of CNN's 4 p.m. ET hour of live coverage. The perpetrators "could be a right-wing extremist group," Bergen insisted, if the matter inside the bomb was not hydrogen peroxide, which he said is a "signature" of an al Qaeda attack.

JAKE TAPPER: Peter, does this – obviously we don't want to speculate. We don't know what this was. But is there reason for people who deal in counter-terrorism to think that this is an act of terrorism? Or suspect it strongly, at least?
PETER BERGEN: Sure. Although I'm reminded of Oklahoma City which was a bombing, which was initially treated as a gas explosion. So first reports are often erroneous. But the fact that there were two explosions – two bombings – one of the things I'd be looking at is once the device, if it is a device, is found, what kind of explosives were used? For instance, if it was hydrogen peroxide, this is a signature of al-Qaeda. If it was more conventional explosives, which are much harder to get a hold of now, that might be some other kind of right-wing extremists. We've seen a number of failed bombing attempts by al-Qaeda using bombs, (Unintelligible) and for instance, the Manhattan subway in 2009, Faisal Shahzad in 2010, the attempt to bring down Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit in 2009. But we've also seen other extremist groups, right-wing groups, for instance, trying to attack the Martin Luther King parade in Oregon in 2010.

TAPPER: And Peter, what are you waiting to hear for – hear about in these coming hours?

BERGEN: I think the actual – the constituency inside the bomb will make a big difference about how we identify the person who did this. Or the persons who did this. Because if it's hydrogen peroxide, that puts (Unintelligible). If it's something else –

TAPPER: Could be a different –

BERGEN: – could be a right-wing extremist group. Or some other group.

Perhaps it's time to have a national "bomb control" conversation, as well as a national bomb registry.

Not making light of the situation, but trying to expose the useful idiots.

The MSM tried to do the same thing for about a day on 9/11/01. I guess they think they can wish enough to make it true.

If its a white guy, the press and the Obama idiots will call it a teabagging right wing extremist.
If its a muslim, it will be called just an unfortunate case of workplace violence.
So glad my government is busy watching patriots instead of terroists.

Wolf Blitzer is on the same bandwagon.

Hmmm...
Let's see:
1) reports of a Saudi National "person of interest."
2) 2 of 7 (reportably) bombs go off.
3) The usual suspects start ranting about possible right wing nuts and a link to "Patriots' Day" and/or tax protest.
4) subsequent scrubbing of all reference to items 1 & 2.
5) persecution of some poor schlub they identify as the bomber.
6) further crackdown on militias and RKBA.

Same old narative.

(SO FUCK IT, LET'S SPECULATE ANYWAY ... THAT'S WHAT WE GET FUCKING PAID TO DO.)

"But is there reason for people who deal in counter-terrorism to think that this is an act of terrorism?"

(WELL JAKE, THIS ACT OF TERRORISM KINDA MAKES PEOPLE THINK THAT THIS WAS AN ACT OF TERRORISM AND THAT'S THE REASON THAT PEOPLE ARE USING TO THINK THIS WAS AND ACT OF TERRORISM. YOU KNOW BOMB GOES OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF A CROWDED EVENT. BIG FUCKING HINT THERE JAKE.)
