OU Bomber Used TATP

We will grant that University of Oklahoma suicide bomber Joel Henry Hinrichs III may have not been part of a larger Islamic plot.

But I think the larger issue is being missed here: if you want to blow yourself up, which major world-wide religion do you consult for the expertise?

No, it's not the Mennonites.

Denver Channel:

FBI agents found the same type of volatile high explosive believe to have been used in the suicide bombings in London inside the apartment of a University of Oklahoma student who blew himself up near a packed football stadium, according to newly released documents.

....The FBI also found Hinrichs downloaded from the Internet "numerous text and image files" on weapons and explosives, including one on TATP four days before his death.

One video on his computer depicted a lit match being placed above a white powder then a bright flash.

Paranthetically, I also have a number of "'numerous text and image files on weapons and explosives', including one on TATP" and a video depicting a "lit match being placed above a white powder then a bright flash" on my computer. Of course, I got all of said images and videos from jihadi forums.
The FBI also discovered "explosive experiments and paraphernalia" and 0.4 pounds of a white powder that turned out to be triacetone triperoxide, or TATP, which is composed of hydrogen peroxide and acetone, according to warrants to search the home of Joel Henry Hinrichs III.
So, the case against Hinrichs seems to be closed for the FBI. He was a lone suicidial nut. Perhaps the only meaningful Islamic connection here is Hinrichs' source of inspiration: Hamas, Islamic Jihad, al Qaeda, etc.

Even so, that is saying a lot.......

1 Probably was a lone nut out fishing for how to.

Sadly miss the ol' days when someone bent on suicide simply jumped off a bridge in the middle of the night or hanged themselves in the bathroom. Now its performance art with attempted audience participation.

2 Would it be perverse to have some fun with this?

I'm looking for something lite and frivolous at the moment.

3 Perverse, yes. Wrong, probably. So, go right ahead ;-)

4 So basically the Federal Bungling Idiots are stating that there's nothing to see here, and that we should move along? They must be slipping, because they didn't even murder a woman holding a baby this time.

5 OK

Seen a photo of this kid. If he did delve into Islamobabble it could be the 72 virgin thing. It would probably be his only real chance to get a date - at least 1 of those 72 might say yes.

6 Kid stuck me as - well - er virgin.
So what happens when you put 72 virgins and 1 virgin in a room? A lot of blank stares?

I'm trying - give me time
I'll be here all week

10 My slightly more than two year old niece could snap on rectus so bad, and the only thing she's got right now is to whisper conspiratorially in your ear to tell you that you farted.

11 This isn't the first time that the actions of Oklahoma Muslims have been covered up by the Federal Government.

They are afraid of public reaction if the truth was known.

But, that is no excuse for their continued lying about the extent of involvement of Oklahoma Muslims in the planning and execution of domestic terrorist attacks, especially when in the most egregious case of them doing this the politicians instead of telling the truth used the situation to succeesfully demonize his political opposition and get re-elected.
