Officials investigating the Boston Marathon attack say early evidence suggests the culprit is likely to be a homegrown “domestic extremist,” leaving the path clear for the Obama administration’s political adversaries to be demonized as extremists.
Richard DesLauriers, the special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office, asserted, “The person who did this was someone’s friend, neighbor or coworker,” ruling out the possibility that the attack was carried out by foreigners who entered the United States.
Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss, the top Republican on the Senate Intelligence Committee, went further, telling reporters, “There are a lot of things that are surrounding this that would give an indication it may have been a domestic terrorist.”
Dutch Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House intelligence, said the investigation was leaning towards the likelihood that the bombings were the work of a “lone wolf” extremist.
If the bomber turns out to be a stereotypical “right-wing extremist,” President Obama will likely follow the advice of a number of Democratic strategists who have openly invited acts of violence that Obama can exploit to push his big government agenda.
