Barack Obama, our next President

Amazingly, the Boston perpetrators apparently thought they could somehow get away with their deed even though they chose to set their bombs off at the most-photographed spot on the planet at the time. Moreover, although they were not prepared to die with their bombs, they do not seem to have had anything that could be considered a coherent plan of escape. This rather bizarre inability to think about the aftermath of the planned deed is quite typical in the case studies.(Also commonly found: an inability to explain how killing a few random people would advance their cause.)

The Boston perpetrators seem never to have ventured much more than a few miles from the bombing location, and they appear to have had no reliable means of transport and no money. Then, when the police published their photographs, they mindlessly blew whatever cover they had by killing a campus cop, hijacking a car, stealing money, trying to run a police blockade, and engaging in a brief Hollywood-style car chase and shootout. Surveillance imagery played an important role in identifying the terrorists (as it did in terrorist events in London in 2005), but the key breakthrough appears to have come when the culprits decided to leave their lair, after which the police applied standard killer-on-the-loose methodology

Boston appears to be a lone-wolf attack—albeit one with two wolves—in the sense that no one besides the bombers seems to have been aware of it. Attacks in which only the perpetrator knows about the plans are obviously more difficult to avert than ones involving a great number of talkative people.(In some cases, would-be terrorists have advertised for support or collaborators on Facebook and in Internet chat rooms.) Before Boston, some 16 people had been killed by Islamist terrorists in the United States in the years since 2001 (13 of them at Ft. Hood), and all of these were murdered by people who were essentially acting alone.


Concern about “lone wolf” attacks has grown in recent years, and a 2011 DHS assessment concluded that “lone offenders currently present the greatest threat.” This is a reasonable observation, but those concerned should keep in mind that, as Max Abrahms has noted, while lone wolves may be difficult to police, they have carried out only two of the 1,900 most deadly terrorist attacks over the last four decades. They may be harder to stop, but they are also less lethal.(It should also be kept in mind that an American’s chance of being killed by any kind of terrorist, even with 9/11 included in the count, remains about one in 3 million or 4 million per year.)

That's why so many countries in Europe are struggling to stay afloat. They wanted "fairness" too until the government couldn't extract enough tax money anymore. France has already reached 75% and it still isn't enough.

But our beloved celebrities who worship Obama's idea of "fairness" are ever so happy to do their "fair share". Just wait until they have to fork over 75%.

This president wants big government by taxing everything that isn't nailed down. We've got four more years ahead. Unless more Americans snap out of it before November 2014.

your selective memory is a real hoot. you've almost got carol beat.
You can argue that Eisenhower first came up with the idea of "investigating" the situation in Vietnam and Nixon took much too long to end it...but you will never win an argument that Kennedy didn't get us into it and Johnson didn't accelerate it.

Difference being, I hold Nixon responsible for not ending it sooner. You want to give Kennedy and Johnson a pass.

The GOP isn't reversing its 180 on returning to "regular order" in the budget process.

On the Senate floor Tuesday morning, Majority Leader Harry Reid moved to appoint seven Democratic and five Republican Senate negotiators to a conference committee with House counterparts, to iron out major differences between the two chambers' budgets.

Now that both bodies have passed budgets, convening a conference committee is the next step in "regular order," which Republicans have insisted on returning to for several months.

But speaking on behalf of Senate Budget Committee ranking member Jeff Sessions (R-AL), Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) objected to Reid's request.

Most people who met or knew Tamerlan, including family members, say he was a jerk. His dad, however, insists Tamerlan was “kind” and “very nice.”

Tamerlan’s mother is just as deluded. She swears Tamerlan and Dzhokhar couldn’t be involved in a bomb plot because “my sons would never keep a secret.” Instead of correcting Tamerlan’s conspiracy theories, she swallowed them. According to one of her spa clients, Zubeidat recently called the 9/11 attacks a U.S. plot to stoke hatred of Muslims.“My son knows all about it,” she allegedly told the client. Zubeidat also says the FBI has been watching her family constantly for years, which the FBI denies. Last year, she was arrested, but apparently never prosecuted, for shoplifting $1,600 worth of clothes.

KABUL, Afghanistan — Officials say a helicopter owned by an Afghan company has made an emergency landing in a Taliban-controlled area of eastern Afghanistan, and the insurgents took all nine people who were aboard hostage.
A district administrator in the area says the helicopter landed on Sunday afternoon in strong winds and rain in a village of Logar province, southeast of Kabul and about 30 kilometers (or 20 miles) from the Pakistan border.
Hamidullah Hamid said on Monday that the Taliban captured all nine aboard the aircraft and took them from the area. He says the crew and passengers are all civilian.
