How does a pressure cooker bomb become a weapon of mass destruction?

Someone in the States has been playing with definitions again haven't they?

Presumably then, all the Hellfire Missilies and JDAMS that are being routinely used against civilian targets around the world are also weapons of mass destruction?


Perhaps because it was used in "Mass"-achusetts?

I don't believe it to be a cell.
When terrorists strike, they don't hide the fact..they whoop and holler that they did it, responsible, etc. The whole point of a terror attack is that they want to be feared..hard to fear a unknown.

Who was it if it was a cell? Hamas? AlQueda? etc...or maybe the IRA, Greenpeace? At this point, it could be the international astronomy club.

So...a cell? highly doubtful..maybe a small handful of people operating independently at best until someone claims the work (with proof)

I agree that it's not the typical definition of a "terrorist cell". IMO there were only 2 people involved in the actual act of the bombing. However, the probability of only the two of them being the only ones on the planet that had advanced knpowledge of the plan is very low indeed. One glaring item that has been lost in the confusion is the taxi driver's claim that he picked the two suspects up at the Malden, MA "T" station the morning prior to the marathon.

Why were they there, needing a ride home, with HEAVY backpacks?
Why the Malden stop, when the closest stop to their home was the MIT stop?
edit on 2-5-2013 by Krakatoa because: (no reason given)

That was pre drone program.

In the old days a terrorist felt safe in his home country, not today.

Wish they would make up their minds. First there was a cell, then there was no cell, now there is a cell again. Then they received help, then they did it on their own, now it looks like they had help again. Then the bombs were sophisticated, then they were simple, now they are sophisticated again. Geesh this story is enough to make your head spin the way it keeps changing.

Here is an idea for reporters and analysts, report the story when you have the facts straight.

I agree. They keep changing their story. First, the suspect was found, then was taken to court. Then, there were two suspects that were on the loose, and now there's a sleeper cell.

No wonder people are thinking it's a conspiracy.
