  •  "only" two bombs is one clue (14+ / 0-)

    AQ usually accomplishes multiple targets:
    2001/9/11- Four separate planes.
    Madrid 04/3/11- Ten bombs on four trains.
    London - 05/7/7 Four bombers (3 Underground trains, 1 double decker bus)
    2006 Mumbai: Seven bombs, 7 trains.

    Though no comfort to yesterday's victims, Boston seems to be a lesser perpetrator.

    •  Simultaneous attacks have been rare (4+ / 0-)

      because they're difficult to accomplish. AQ seems to be the only organization that's been capable of delivering them outside of active war zones.

      I'm living in America, and in America you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business.

    •  Wasn't there a report of a third? (0+ / 0-)

      On the day of the bombing, I could swear there was a report of a third undetonated bomb being located.

    •  There is no way of knowing at this point. (0+ / 0-)

      And if the bomber(s) were smart they could be trying to feed speculation. If it's AQ they could have used tax day in a liberal city before a gun vote in the Senate as a way to make ppl think it was right wingers. If it was right wingers they may have used pressure cookers to hint at an AQ attack.

      I will say I am kind of bothered with how much information CNN lets out early in an investigation. If the bomber(s) know that they found the lid and that it might have serial numbers that can be traced, they might get spooked and move around. I understand the need to inform the public, but some discretion on the side of the investigation would be good sometimes.
