If this was a foreign terrorist attack, could it be views as an act of war?

And if so, what could the Gov do about it?

Make them promise not to do it again and send aid?


No doesn't fit the narrative that has come out of Washington for the last 4 years:

"the war on terror" is over.

They didn't even want to call what happened in Benghazi an act of terror, and the events at Fort Hood.

I would think (hope) that the FBI NSA will be able to get that info from the unexploded ordnance.

They can finger print that stuff easily, I thought.

Doubtful, unless it was shown (or known) to be a state-sponsored or government-condoned (state or government of the terrorist's country, of course) act, in which case then yes, it could be interpreted as an act of war. I think.

Everyone constantly posting about "suspicious packages" as if it's urgent breaking news - you do realise that *every* unattended bag will be reported and treated as suspicious, right?


Stop getting so excited - "it's over".

A foreign terrorist cell would have already claimed responsibility. No one has yet... probably the most unsettling part of all of this thus far... at least in my opinion.

That's a very shameful shame.

Lets see what happens when this all shakes out.

Thanks Neo.

Can't wait to see what he has to say about the largest "terrorist" attack on US soil in 12 years.


The only thing that he said that was noteworthy was "I am supremely confident" blah blah. "Supremely Confident?"

Who uses the adjective "Supremely?"

Dictators.

Besides that, nothing he said was anything we didn't already know. He was handed a script, and he read it. Period. Except, I think he used the word "Supremely" out of habit.

Come on. Seriously? Can you cite that source?

Is this shockingly similar to the drills on 9-11 where we were flying fighters to practice for planes being used as projectiles?

They WILL catch whoever did it.

If they have 1 bomb that didn't go off they have forensic evidence, possibly DNA, and the chemical etc constituents of the device.

Plus CCTV of the area prior to the events, and they know he got there in a van or car if he doesn't live locally, so CCTV of the traffic will also help narrow it down.

Then there'll be the crazy letters in the post tomorrow to the MSM.

Well thank you for your opinion, I wish I was as sure as you about certain things, but given the amount of packages they've found and detonated or are being reported as unexploded I'd say with a little less luck this would not have been over after all we've seen and the potential for more danger is absolutely still present.

But that's just my opinion.

And surprisingly, the day before 911 Rumsfeld admitted to losing touch with $22 billion ... or how much was that?

What do you think happens when a bomb goes off?

People don't hang around looking for their bags, they R U N!

These were probably bombs in bags (obviously), so EVERY bag that's been left behind is a potential bomb.

People go from complacent to hypersensitive in a very short time and then EVERYTHING looks suspicious to them.

I would think that if this were some major foreign-power sponsored attack being carried out against the US, they would have taken the time to make sure to do more damage in their strike. Yeah, it was big booms, but the casualty count for this seems FAR lower than a foreign power would be shooting for. If it was them, I would have expected bigger booms, more building damage, and more of a body count.

But regardless of who did it ... its stupid. I'd love the chance to have a go at the person(s) responsible.

I hope they do catch them... They've reported already they have a suspect on tape with a backpack bringing a device to the scene and placing it in a trash receptacle. Also I've seen reported via twitter this picture of someone being detained recently. It's weird it looks like he's wearing a makeshift turban or something, possibly a hat. No shirt on. Handcuffed sitting on a curb.

Has anyone else seen this? Can they link to it? Ill try and find a URL... I have the pic on my phone but I don't know how to get it on here.

Okay... I don't see how that relates to my post but I agree, Ive stated as much only in fewer words on previous posts.

The police have found unexploded bombs and detonated at least one or two. All I was saying was it could have been a lot worse had those bombs gone off and the fact that there are so many (3+) means danger is still present, at least from a LEO point of view.
