Seneca III has taken an expert look at the Boston Marathon bombings and their aftermath, and offers a few observations about what might be missing from the reportage on the week’s events.
by Seneca III
Many questions are being asked about the circumstances leading up to, surrounding and following the Islamic atrocity in Boston, and rightfully so. The following list comes from a post on The Astute Blogger, and to my mind the questions are both logical and reasonable to ask although, I suspect, the Obamites will be somewhat reluctant to do so:
|1.||Who helped them?|
|2.||Who financed them?|
|3.||Who trained them?|
|4.||Who was aware beforehand and kept quiet?|
|5.||Who knew afterwards and kept quiet?|
|6.||Why did the FBI drop the ball in 2011?|
|7.||Which foreign country wanted the FBI to investigate them?|
|8.||What role — if any — did Alharbi play in this?|
|9.||Is there a hotbed of Islamism hidden within the college the younger brother attended, and other cells?|
|10.||Did any professors encourage them by teaching them an anti-USA/anti-Russia narrative for the Chechen war?
From my very limited point of understanding over on this side of the pond a detailed answer to question number 8 might well be enlightening, particularly in view of the secret meeting between Kerry and the Saudi ambassador and the subsequent swift deportation of the Alharbi youth complete with all of the tribal and Jihadi affiliations he so obviously carried. Such an answer might well have made a seminal contribution the investigation had the investigation been conducted in-depth over time with the youth available to assist the investigators with their enquiries, but as of now this whole avenue of enquiry has been safely buried for reasons not disclosed to the American people by their own administration — or, perhaps, ‘safely buried’ being what the latter hope for, I suspect.
However, one small advantage of looking into such terrible happenings from an external perspective tempered by experience is that it can be quite useful to clinically examine not so much what is postulated or reported in the media, or peddled by the political classes and their executive agencies, but rather to look closely for what is not said or openly commented upon, those things long known in the trade as lacunae — obvious gaps in the narrative that most of the time mean nothing at all, but do occasionally turn out to be an investigative gold mine. Here therefore is a compound question that has been nagging me for the last twenty-four hours or so:
“Why, after the typical Muslim disregard for human life and suffering as displayed by both the nature of and the way they placed the bombs, did these two demented slaves of Allah choose to release, alive and unharmed, the driver of the Mercedes that they hijacked; and hence might it not be productive for it to be disclosed in the public domain what is known about the driver, particularly his or her nationality, political affiliations, ethnicity, or belief system and precisely why the vehicle was where it was when it was?”
It is more than likely of course that there are perfectly rational and acceptable answers to all of these points, another dry hole, so to speak. However, for them to remain unanswered by those who should and do know, and in a clear and open way that can be verified, might well raise an eyebrow or two amongst the patriotic thinking classes.
Or at least it should.
