Hi, Rogers!



#52 2013-04-17 22:23:03

Well one down. You can stop microwaving your morning mail. It seems a particular kind of southern white male crazy is involved.

This is Kevin Curtis and I approve this report.



#53 2013-04-17 23:14:56


Steve Emerson of the Investigative Project on Terrorism, reported that his sources are telling him that Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, the Saudi national who was a person of interest for less than 24 hours, is being deported to Saudi Arabia on Tuesday.

Why? According to Emerson, based on National Security grounds.

Reuters is reporting that Obama met today with the Saudi Foreign Minister in an unscheduled meeting:

    U.S. President Barack Obama met with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal at the White House on Wednesday and discussed the conflict in Syria, a spokeswoman said.

    The meeting was not on Obama’s public schedule.



#54 2013-04-18 00:26:02

OK, let's review what happened today....

So, today we had 'official' sources saying they had a suspect in custody - good enough that several different media outlets were wiling to go with it.

Then, after about an hour, they suddenly don't have one in custody.  But the original 'official' source sticks by his story.

Then we have a couple of fast meetings with the Saudi officials (Obama and Kerry), both of which are closed to the press (where the first was unscheduled and the latter was scheduled but supposed to be open to the press).  (most major news outlets ignore this news)

Next we have a series of news conferences which are hastily cancelled.  (most major news outlets ignore this news)

Soon after we hear that we have a Saudi guy getting very quickly deported for 'national security' reasons, with a family name that is closely associated with terrorist organizations. (most major news outlets ignore this news)

Now all of a sudden all the news media refuse to show photos of the alleged suspects / persons of interest.

We have Ricin being mailed to publicans in DC by an Elvis impersonator and Jebus freak (and Democratic supporter).

And we have a huge fertilizer plant only a couple miles from Waco blowing up on the day before the Waco anniversary.

OK, folks... nothing happening here.  Move along, please.

Sadly lost in ths entire tragedy is the winner of this year's race, Roger Pistorius. Originally projected to finish 2011th, he somehow snuck in first while whistling his classic theme song, "Tip Toe Through the Two Hips."

Hey, Obama is simply doing a small favor for his benefactors.  Just because the Saudi's are biggest terror exporters in the world, and simply because the kid's family is tied up with Al Qaida and he was unfortunately photographed at the bomb site with a backpack, is no reason to keep him in the country and question him.



#58 2013-04-18 18:00:36

Congrats.  Looks like all the photos above were of the wrong guys.

Shit is always blowing up in Texas.  That's just the way it is down here.  At least it wasn't another refinery explosion in Baytown.

Until proven differently, I'm blaming the usual suspects.  Either a welder, or somebody trying to sneak a smoke.

And now, the Feds are looking for these two white boys in connection with the Boston bombings.

If those guys are white they are too young to be right wing.  This is Occupy Territory now.

The official suspects are "swarthy" - they don't look especially white to me.

On the other hand, the Craft International mercs are mostly caucasian, and their presence is intriguing. I cannot wait to hear the explanation for that. While I don't consider Natural News a credible source of reportage, this article convincingly identifies that one of their team is holding a radiation detector.

Certainly lends credance that somebody knew something was up.

Interesting new photo found... POI #2 running from the scene? (rounding the corner, lower left).  If it is him - and it sure as heck looks like it is - this may be the best photo so far.

Although he looks to be wearing khaki pants, nice black shoes and a similar cap, I don't think it's POI #1 running behind him (near the pink jacket lady) since his t-shirt is the wrong colour (black.. should be white).

Get your program here, can't tell the winners without a program. The reddit photos and map.

The photographer claims 5 minutes before blast at Bomb site 1. Black hat guy is to right of the girl's gold ring. Still has backpack on.



Bonus assignment, get in on the internets madness. An hour or so ago a Boston beat cop made a radio call relaying a Allston apartment landlord reporting that the two suspects rented from him in January. And are in unit #2. The beat cop requested the FBI's terrorism unit respond. The Boston Regional Intelligence Center said to wait for them to arrive

Today is April 19, damnitall, the one and only true Patriot's Day.

Fuck the marathon. See which self-absorbed, masochist fuckwit runs 26 miles the fastest for the thrill of tracking mindless statistics chronicling their pain? NPR subscribers, ok? Santimonious and insufferable former smokers. Each race, of course, dates to its ancient Greek instigators and features contestants who turn tits up and die. The Boston Marathon starts half a block from brother's front door and I've never seen it. So fuck it, and fuck y'all, too.

Our tweeter on the scene speaks with CBS and the NY times.

Andrew Kitzenberg, 29, said he looked out of this third floor window to see two young men of slight build in jackets engaged in “constant gunfire” with police officers. A police SUV “drove towards the shooters,” he said, and was shot at until it was severely damaged. It rolled out of control, Mr. Kitzenberg said, and crashed into two cars in his driveway.

The two shooters, he said, had a large and unwieldy bomb. “They lit it, still in the middle of the gunfire, and threw it. But it went 20 yards at most.” It exploded, he said, and one of the two men ran towards the gathered police officers. He was tackled, but it was not clear if he was shot, Mr. Kitzenberg said.

The explosions, said Loretta Kehayias, 65, another resident, “lit up the whole house. I screamed. I’ve never seen anything like this, never, never, never.”

Meanwhile, the other young man, said Mr. Kitzenberg, got back into the SUV, turned it toward officers and “put the pedal to the metal.” The car “went right through the cops, broke right through and continued west.”

The two men left “a few backpacks right by the car, and there is a bomb robot out there now.” Police had told residents to stay away from their windows, he said.

Reports are that suspect #1 (black hat guy) from the shoot-out is now dead.  Still chasing the dude in the white hat. Believed to be holed-up in a house.  Door to door search ongoing. Residents told to stay in their homes and do NOT answer the door unless instructed by a police officer.



#84 2013-04-19 04:03:21

The internets claim the Boston PD named the 2 suspects on the pubic radio. One of the suspects is the missing Brown student who walked away in March. He is pictured above as "white hat guy".



#85 2013-04-19 04:09:05

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis has confirmed that  the "black hat" suspect is dead.

Yes just a guy in the wrong place. Amazing he was not shot just for good measure. The video showed a vary chaotic scene.

I am listening to CBS as they have the interview with the tweeter Andrew K who's pictures are above.


Sailor, did you see the claim that the "White Hat Guy" suspect identified as the missing Brown student is from Bryn Mawr? That is quite close to you and my family.



#89 2013-04-19 04:17:32

Yes, I saw that.  I'm over on the other side of Montco, but yeah, too close for comfort.

Dead "black hat" suspect is ID'd as Mike Mulugeta. Believed DOB is 10-29-91.



#90 2013-04-19 04:35:24

So the press conference says the "white hat guy" Sunil Tripathi is still at large in the neighborhood. It's 4:27 am.  Odds he makes it out alive?

So who is this kid? For those who do not know Bryn Mawr it is the traditional ancestral lands of the Philly Blue Bloods. Now along with Upper Merion it has been adopted by various international wealthy seeking status address's.

Lots of wealthier Indians and Pakistanis living in that area now... not surprising he's from there.

Police believe he may have explosives with him, perhaps strapped to him.  Dead suspect supposedly also had similar explosives strapped to him which were detonated when apprehended.

Summary of tonight's activities by the DA in Middlesex:

Police are investigating a fatal shooting of MIT campus police officer by two men who then committed an armed carjacking in Cambridge, Middlesex Acting District Attorney Michael Pelgro, Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas, and MIT Police Chief John DiFava announced this evening.

At approximately 10:20 p.m. April 18, police received reports of shots fired on the MIT campus.  At 10:30 p.m., an MIT campus police officer was found shot in his vehicle in the area of Vassar and Main streets.  According to authorities, the officer was found evidencing multiple gunshot wounds.  He was transported to Massachusetts General Hospital and pronounced deceased.

Authorities launched an immediate investigation into the circumstances of the shooting. The investigation determined that two males were involved in this shooting.

A short time later, police received reports of an armed carjacking by two males in the area of Third Street in Cambridge.  The victim was carjacked at gunpoint by two males and was kept in the car with the suspects for approximately a half hour.  The victim was released at a gas station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.  He was not injured.

Police immediately began a search for the vehicle and were in pursuit of the vehicle into Watertown.  At that time, explosive devices were reportedly thrown from car by the suspects.  The suspects and police also exchanged gunfire in the area of Dexter and Laurel streets.  During this pursuit, an MBTA Police officer was seriously injured and transported to the hospital.

During the pursuit, one suspect was critically injured and transported to the hospital where he was pronounced deceased.  An extensive manhunt is ongoing in the Watertown area for the second suspect, who is believed to be armed and dangerous.

The case is being investigated by local, state and federal authorities working in cooperation.  The Massachusetts State Police Bomb Squad is assessing and removing any potentially explosive devices that may have been thrown on the street in Watertown by the suspects.

This was the facebook page set up to find him since he went missing March 16.

http://www.facebook.com/pages/Help-Us-F … 5636436466

A Radnor High School graduate is missing, and his family and friends are searching for him.

According to the Facebook.com page Help Us Find Sunil Tripathi, Brown University undergraduate Sunil Tripathi has been missing from his Providence apartment since Saturday morning, March 16.

"Sunil has been struggling with depression since he took a leave of absence from Brown last year. A note suggestive of suicidal intent left behind in his apartment has his family extremely worried. They are currently in Providence, helping the police search for him," the Facebook page reads.

"Sunil is a kind, gentle, and shy young man. All we want is for him to return safe and well."

Tripathi’s housemates are shaken by his disappearance and said they are concerned and hope he returns safely.

A former philosophy concentrator, Tripathi played saxophone with the wind ensemble and in a saxophone quartet before taking a leave after the spring of his junior year in 2011, Sangeeta Tripathi said.

Tripathi was “struggling with depression,” she said. After taking leave, “he’d been living in Providence and taking time off to help get back on track and feel better about school and feel better about himself and his health and life,” she added.

Family and a close group of friends were “very involved” in helping Tripathi through that struggle, she said.

Though Tripathi had a history of depression, his sister described the disappearance as “very atypical.”

“There was never ever any history of self-harm or escalation or a rash act at all,” she said. “He had a good day the day before (he disappeared), so we’re all just worried and sad and scared and just really hoping he’s safe.”

She described her brother as “the most shy, considerate, gentle young man.”

Ok, so if this is the suspect then I have a dozen or so friends who's kids know him from high school. That is way too close for comfort.

Oh my, the reddit internets steered us wrong on small details like the names. Fancy that.

AP releases names:

BREAKING: AP: Surviving Boston bomb suspect identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass. -SS

Pete Williams says the suspects have been identified, but is being told not reveal their names yet. He does say they are brothers. One is 19, one is 20. The AP says they are from a Russian region near Chechnya.



#99 2013-04-19 07:06:11

Sure reddit steered us wrong.  That composite don't get much closer.  The "names" are spin.  Both guys will end up dead and so the story can be whatever the regime wants it to be.

Chechens?  Seriously?  What is this, 1993?
