Retired L.A. police investigator, Mark Furhman nailed it on the head. IF the FBI
shared intelligence info with the Boston Police Dept, after getting the Russian
intel, like they are supposed to, the bombers would have been apprehended within
2 hours. The FBI wants to maintain their exclusivity and status.
All I can say is actions speak louder than words. What someone claims they are
or aren't is easier to observe from what they do than fdrom what they
say.I have no problem with the Muslim people.
This is a criminal investigation, not a religious assessment. They can believe
what they will and join the Truthers or whatever satisfies their paranoia. But
they cannot kill and maim others, it's that simple. It's ironic that
Muslims are killing other Muslims with great frequency in Iraq, Afghanistan and
Pakistan yet there isn't much objection to that in the radical community.
Islamic law has resulted in failed society and failed society. Poverty,
violence, subjugation of women, corrupt government. Their countries are
failing.They now seek refuge in countries whose ideologies they hate
yet desperately need to survive.This is not hate speech. Go to
Europe. See if for yourself. I've lived there. Muslims want food and
shelter and peace and stability yet nothing in their religion fosters that
You imagine this:FBI Boss: Anything happening on our terrorist watch
today?FBI Guy: Nothing really. Russians are looking at a guy, but it
doesn't appear to be much.FBI Boss: Let's take a break and play
Call Of DutyWhat really happens:FBI Boss: Any threats standing
out in the billions of communications we montitor every day, and the millions of
people we're watching?FBI Guy: Nothing more than usual. Oh, the
Russians sent us something with the thousands of Chechnyans they are
monitoring.FBI Boss: Great. Mix it in with the thousands of reports from
Britain, Israel, Brazil, Thailand, Italy... It is always easy to
catch the guy with hindsight. Much, much tougher in real time.
@USAloverAs has been pointed out repeatedly over the last couple of
weeks (including on threads you have commented on) the 22 terrorist that have
attacked our country in the name of Islam represent less than .0004 percent of
the Muslim population in America so you will excuse me if I do not believe your
comment is anything other than hate speech.
@ModerateSo, is this how the FBI operates? That's a scary scenario,
of crying wolf.They still need to communicate those wolf cries to local
police departments. Maybe they will take them more seriously than what you are
USAloverSalt Lake City, UTIslamic law has resulted in failed society
and failed society.============ Um, I beg to differ --
Islamic societies have been around for over 1400 years.America? not even 230.In fact - by the time the Pilgrims first arrived
Islam had still been around for over 1,000 years.The Muslim world is
responsible from bringing Europe out of the Christian led Dark Ages and
introducing the Rennaisannce.Yours is just a ignorant paranoid
comment comprising bigotry and religous intolerance.
george:muslims make up 1% of the US populationAnd yet,
shockingly,they commit substantially more than 1% of recent
terrorist attacks.Many muslim people may be decent peopleHowever, when 1% of the population is committing a substantially larger
percentage of terrorist activities, clearly a correlation is
I guessed from day 1 this was done by Muslim terrorists.Being that
Muslims make up less than 1% of the population, there was:1) a 1%
chance I would be correct in my guessOR2) there is a
stronger correlation between Islam and terrorism than many people want to
admit.There are people even in this thread who told me on day 1 I
would be wrong and that the murders in Boston were likely carried out by NRA
card carrying Christians.No.I was right.Lucky guess on my part?I think not
Interesting history, Judo-christian societies have existed for 2,000 years, No
current Islamic country has a government as old as ours. No judo christian
country has a government as old as ours except The Isle of Man's Tynwald
Government. Interest by Europe in Islamic society arose during the Renaissance
not because of. You could postulate some of the effect was a result of the
Ottoman Turks, when they conquered Constantinople (1453) generated a wave of
Greek scholars bringing manuscripts in ancient Greek, many of which had fallen
into obscurity in the West.
We should let Coulter and Fox news be her judge, jury and executioner.
Ernest,That would probably be better than MSNBC, Maddow, O'Donnell
Chris BSalt Lake City, UTgeorge:muslims make up 1% of
the US populationAnd yet, shockingly,they commit
substantially more than 1% of recent terrorist attacks.=============== And Christians make up less than 1% in Muslim
Countries, And yet, shockingly, they killed over 500,000 muslim
civilans looking for imaginary WMDs that didn't exist during the Bush wars
for oil.You might want to think who the REAL terrorists really are.
@Chris BAnd once again the terrorist make up less than .0004 percent
of the Muslim population far less than 1 percent yet you want to through all
Muslims into the same category. Using your reasoning we must condemn all
Is anyone surprised by this? A mother proclaiming that her children are
innocent.Every group of people has their own jargon. I am LDS and we
have our own jargon. The word "Sealed" in the LDS community means
something very different from the way it is perceived by the general population.
Those of the Muslim faith are no different. This lady may even be telling the
truth from her perspective.It all depends upon the meaning of the
word "innocent" and other words as well. Only an expert on their culture
could determine where the truth lies.
Yeah lady, your sons are innocent. They were forced to make bombs, get caught on
camera, kill police officers, throw bombs at them during a chase and plan to
bomb time square. Yes, they must have been framed. Smart lady.
LDS In your flair for the dramatic, "And yet, shockingly,they killed
over 500,000 Muslim civilians looking for imaginary WMDs that didn't exist
during the Bush wars for oil." Can you please provide an accurate break
down on the cause of the deaths, for example how many were NATO forces that
killed combatants as opposed to civilians. And then how many were sectarian
caused deaths as in terror attacks Sunni against Kurd, or Shiite; Shiite against
Kurd or Sunni; Or Kurd against Sunni or Shiite. And differentiate between NATO
attacks that killed civilians and Combatant attacks against NATO that killed
civilians. And then would you discuss the democratic leaders signing off
for the WMDs and their oil wars.
Muslims will have more to do with the next World War than any single group of
people. TRUTH!Can you imagine how peaceful this country would be
without Jihad and militant Muslim groups?
@USAlover "Can you imagine how peaceful this country would be
without Jihad and militant Muslim groups?"The actions of Adam
Lanza, Jared Loughner James Holmes, Eric Harris, Eric Rudolph Andrew, Joseph and
other would suggest otherwise but keep trying. btw acting like no
one already refuted this line of logic does not make their post disappear.
USAlover It would probably do the same as you taking all violent
christians, atheists, and any other faith you want to mention. What you stated
is not fact, it is opinion. Even if it happens to be right, which I doubt, it
was still a guess on your part. There are a select few from every faith that
committ terrible acts. Do we then associate every act of violence to the
religion that they belonged to?
At George,I meant "planet" instead of country.Denial ain't just a river in Egypt.
