"...looney right wing bloggers think it's a planned terrorist attack and question why the "MSM" (in their translation - "liberal media") is not reporting about that suicide. Kokonutguy says, "You can tell whose side the MSM is on....the side of the terrorists and not inform the public at large......."
If anybody ever take the time to actually read my blog, or other well respected true journalistic style reporting bloggers that I have linked like Tapscott's (who is, btw, a real practicing professional journalist), you'll see that I and others do not subscribe to a conspiracy theory about Joel Hinrichs. We do not make arguments for a terrorist connecton but rather question the surrounding incidents when there were many suspcicious incidents to begin with.
Michelle Malkin who had lots of questions about the incident, rather than committing to a conspiracy theory, tried to explain to a Wall Street Journal "journalist" who contacted her by phone to ask questions about the bombing incident in Norman, Oklahoma, a place where known terrorist activities took place. Much to the "journalist's" dismay, he didn't find a rabid conservative conspiracy theorist.
It's funny when people already conclude even before the FBI make the final conclusion that:
Joel's a lonely boy who wanted to end his life. There's no evidence he is tied to any terrorist organizations.
No. Not quite. Mince words you must you people. The FBI never said that there's no proof of a terrorist connection.
On October 4, the FBI issued a statement saying:
"At this time, there is no known link between Hinrichs and any terrorist or extremist organization(s) or activities."
Note the words, "At this time," which means the investigation is ongoing until they can determine exactly whether or not that there is indeed a terrorist connection or ties to Islamic organization(s). Why else would there be the FBI and Joint Terrorism Task Force at work here when it could simply be the Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearm (ATF) doing the investigation?
The string of incidents albeit suspicious in nature ought to be enough to force those to ask questions just as I have done with the Hinrichs' case. Michelle Malkin's reiterate once again to the reporter:
I explained that unlike the MSM, most of the blogs I have linked to were simply trying to find out the truth about the strange incident-and that meant keeping open the possibility that Hinrichs meant to commit murder and that he may have been swayed by extremist Islamic views.
Indeed. Next time, work on using that brain matter some more. I have never said there was a terrorist connection but simply asked questions that the FBI and JTTF have not answered so far. Until all possibilities are exhausted, the FBI and JTTF will provide the final conclusive report to the public.
