CNN: "Pressure Cooker Bombs Signature Of Right-Wing Extremists"

The idiots at CNN then go on to equate pressure cooker bombs with pipe bombs to make their point:

Such a formula is certainly not unique to AQAP. Variations appear all over the Internet. A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.

For example, the devices planted by Erich Rudolph at an Atlanta park during the 1996 Olympic Games were pipe bombs filled with gunpowder and nails to increase their lethality; it also had an alarm clock as a timing mechanism. Like the bombings in Boston, those devices were concealed in a backpack, according to a Department of Homeland Security report detailing the 1996 attack.

Without exposing themselves to accusations of "racism" or "Islamophobia," CNN carefully treads around "lone wolf" incidents involving similar bombing components, such as backpacks and timers. Apparently, all these things prove right-wings extremists may be behind the bombing, despite the many coincidental Islamists using "Inspire" recipes.

1 Here we go...
Push the narrative that this was an organized plot by "right wing extremists"... Tea Party members not dought. They were also carrying NRA membership cards and were known to be pro-life Christians as well.
Well now. The left can fire up the ovens and prepare the gulags for an influx of Evangelicals and Catholics for this one. Time to put those 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition into use boys...

3 Two points on this... first, as has been pointed out several times, pressure cookers used as containment vessels for explosives are more common in Asia (i.e. Pakistan, Afghanistan, etc.) than the US. So anyone who states this is and indicator of "Right Wing" terrorism, is an alarmist with an agenda and their opinion (not analysis) is based on nothing. Additionally, the information on how to use pressure cookers in bomb making is common knowledge so it can occur anywhere. As a side note... when was the last time you saw people using a pressure cooker in the US and even then how often. Second, if "Right Wing" anything could be attributed to the attack it would be splashed all over the news. The current administration along with most of the media appears to pray for this to be a "Right Wing" attack, because when it isn't they look foolish since they tout the "Right Wing" as being the "most dangerous" element in the US. Seems that we have forgotten the 60s 70s and all th bombs deposited by "Left Wing" actors and also the attempted attack on the bridge in Ohio just over a year ago.

4 Those might be the same kind of bombs used by Bill Ayers and the Weather Underground.

5 Some person just sent a Ricin letter to the POTUS according to the ABC news.
It's Obama"s first ever assassination attempt!

This type of IED is a simple device and it was taught at BST Geiger 1970's instead of a pressure cooker we used ammo cans.

When the true ID of the bomber comes out don't be surprised if it's some nut who is pissed at Nike for the slave labor used to make running shoes.

6 And Just to get this straight, The Ammo Can IED was used mostly by the VietCong sappers as booby traps.

8 And why does the news media keep saying Waco, Tx was a terrorist attack?
The only terrorist there were Janet Rino and the FBI!

9 Oh Nooooo! A dark skinned individual identified as the bomber... Arrest made???

Leftists are in a panic trying to somehow tie this back to Christians, NRA members, anti-gay, pro-life, white people...

Most likely the leftists will spin this as a frustrated minority getting even with "whitey"...

What a fuekine retard. People have been filling things that go bang (think cannons)with nails, pebbles, broken pottery, etc for a long time. Like before socialist Marxists doooch bags took over the country.
And no, it is not a trademark of right wing extremist per se.
Did see a lot of this Shiite in Iraq though. Smart money is on a jihadist POS or sympathizer.

13 the MSM also considers Islamic fascism to be 'right wing' because all religions look alike to the graduates of Colombia School of Journalism.

14 The Washington City regime and their propaganda ministry will not stop until they disarm America. They will use any tragedy they can, any way they can. If they can't get a tragedy they will make one up out of thin air. Tell it like it is, people. This is the end game.

15 Can anyone prove to me that Eric Rudulf or however you spell his name was in fact a right-winger? I thought he was a leftist.

Posted by: Aussie at April 17, 2013 05:12 PM

16 I never knew white right wing extremists were running around Pakistan and Aghganistan setting off pressure cooker IEDs. Oh wait, they aren't! Its the damn jihadis that are doing that. If it does turn out to be a domestic "white guy" want to bet that it is someone who converted to islam and went from John Smith to Mohamed Abdulla al-fruitloop.

17 Eric Rudolph was a nutjob, it doesn't matter what side of the political spectrum. They both meet in extremity and murder. Oh, remember: Socialism is violence.
