    Points to the need for the viewer to be discerning, and view a couple of sources before you come to conclusions...

    The Post and Daily News have thrived on "gotcha titles" for a long time now, and the tabloid format should always be taken with a grain of salt.

    As Simon and Garfunkle said, "I get all the news I need from the weather report"...

    The more I think about this, this mornings "news" on WND and Newsmax figured out who did it, some Muzlim.. of course illegal immigration is also coming into play. Steven King, NY Rep, follows along.

    OTOH on the other hand there will be those who are content with the idea of a lone wolf who represents some extreme con view...

    When they figure it out, if it is a Muzlim.. then it will someone's fault for some benign decision or benign policy.. if it is some extremist from the right, they will find out that he or she was a member of the 8th grade democrat club.. therefore he or she is really not a right wing extremist..

    Unfortunately, no matter what the outcome there will be a predictable outcry, and we will politicize it without properly respecting those effected by this horrific act.

    Muslims are suspected because of their "track record" we don't hear very much about "White Republican Lutherans" blowing people up even though most Loopy Doopy Liberals would like nothing better than to be able to blame some Tea Party Catholics.

    It could be some crazy dirty filthy white american though I agree with that, time will tell.

    I wonder why that is, Harry, considering there were more Right Wing extremists arrested for acts of suspected violence than there were of Muslim extremists.

    The problem is that many people are concluding that Muslims are guilty. How are they any better than Chris Matthews throwing out tax protesters for the blame?

    I haven't heard anyone say Muslims are guilty.

    I have heard people speculate on the POSSIBILIY of a Muslim (JIhadist) connection.

    Given the thousands of attacks like this commited by Jihadist it is not an unreasonable thing to mull.

    If you have a link where someone claims to know it was an attack by muslims I'd like to see it.

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say that "the religion of peace did it" is about Muslims.

    I think anyone who "looks" for what they perceive are the "wrong things" written or said by the "other side" regarding the bombings in Boston are very sick people.

    Who fuggn cares....really?

    Nothing about the attack on Boston has to do with left or right politics...so please stop this bs and rise above it.

    Not even a Racist like me has said "muslims are guilty" nobody knows yet, the liberals could be right, it could very well be a White Republican Baptist Bush Lover.

    So what if it was indeed a muslim extremist, what difference does that make? And if it a right wing extremist what difference does that make? Either way it is someone with a highly twisted moral compass.

    And there's equal chance it was some lefty or righty....

    But I agree with your overall point...it doesn't make a difference if it's lefty or rightie domestic. But I think it does matter a lot whether it's domestic or foreign.

    Having said that, if it turns out to be domestic, neither "side" has a right to use it as ammunition to say "I told you!" or some other stupid/idiotic comment like "I figured". If it's domestic, the relevance of which side they came from is exactly none at all.

    So let us hope we don't have to read a bunch of idiotic partisan posts that wrongly attempt to make some pompous point.
