  •  Hey, it's speculation... (0+ / 0-)

    I wouldn't report it as news, but as motives go, it's better than a random chance. I certainly thought of a few of these things when thinking about it.

    The counter: why wait until 4 hours in? The cameras are gone, the contenders are more likely to be random American family members and less likely to be foreigners, and there are more of them. That makes it seem like the bombs were targeted to hit the American people - more a foreign terrorist event than an announcement of a right-wing cause.

    It's too early to jump to conclusions - and I'm glad government officials have been careful not to point in any particular direction (unlike some of the media - that would be you, Mr. Murdoch...). Speculate all you want, but let's not point an actual finger yet.

    Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves. - William Pitt
