    that whoever is responsible, the Boston attack is intended as a calling card. It's an indicator that there is someone out there intent on striking the most vulnerable points in the security apparatus. The technology and tactics resemble AQ/Muslim extremists, but the choice of target is odd from this perspective. I'm leaning toward a lone wolf theory, and it would not surprise me to learn of a domestic terrorist who aped techniques from the Arab world in order to throw investigators off the scent. One thing is clear though, whoever perpetrated the attack is planning another and will presumably attempt to top the attack that came before. Also clear is the perpetrator is a dummy who left behind a lot of forensic evidence that they likely assumed would be destroyed. Because of this it's a certainty the person or persons will be found and apprehended even if they succeed in doing more damage in the weeks and months ahead.
