Despite "multiple" warnings from Russian intelligence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had turned to violent jihad, the suspected author of the horrific Boston Marathon massacre was able to buy $400 worth of fireworks in nearby Seabrook, NH., a source of explosive.

The older Tsarnaev brother showed his driver's license as required, and allowed it to be photocopied for store records, also as required. Tsarnaev had been interviewed at least once by the FBI in 2011 as a follow up on warnings from the Russian FSB intelligence service. At the time of the purchase in January 2013, he was on two different terror watch lists.

The black powder from the large "mortar" style fireworks was allegedly used in the pressure cooker bombs exploded in the Boston Marathon bombing.

In addition, despite the ability of the FBI to secure a search warrant for the monitoring and search of Internet usage in cases where "probable cause" exists that a crime might be committed, the Tsarnaev brothers were able to download instructions for the making of pressure cooker bombs from the jihadist website "Inspire."...

Dihydrogen Oxide should be controlled, too.

The joke is dihydrogen

The joke is dihydrogen monoxide. Not oxide. Of course its not what its called to begin with so who cares haha.

To climb the mountain, you must believe you can.

The monoxide does make it that much more sinister

Title should be:

Unemployed Boston Bomber Able to Buy $400 in Explosive Despite Intel Alerts

How was he able to afford that? Someone gave him money. Or he was working for a security firm: http://i.imgur.com/1CUWDpT.jpg

I think he was some sort of patsie/wannabe

but they couldn't have pulled it of themselves, and as far as I can tell the backpack carried by Tamerlan in the FBI released photo doesn't match the fragment they show on the ground, with the square insignia of some sort on it. But it does match one of the paramilitary guys' backpack.

The best way to get at this is first prove, at the very least, that the FBI let it happen on purpose, then go from there to all the discrepancies and prove it was an outright false flag.

Release the Sandy Hook video.

The article says it was a 2 fer 1 deal, it's a great country

...my problem is if the FBI/NSA can spend so much time spying on anti-war and tea party activists, and looking at what they are reading online, they might at least get the guy on the terror watch list who is downloading instructions for pressure cooker bombs from Inspire.

A search warrant of browsing history would have been fully justified, and a gps tracker on his car too.

$400 in fireworks?

One piss poor 4th of July I'd gather. Discernment helps when evaluating these reports.

"Give a man a gun, and he could rob a bank. Give a man a bank, and he could rob the world."

Agreeded

If they said he had bought $400 of these.

in NH then it might have been food for thought. You could set the whole box up and you still would need to have some cover, let alone put them in some sort of compression device.
$400 of Motars or Cakes he would have only had enough to maybe buy five or six 500gram ones. Piss poor Fourth of July.

Also Aerial Fireworks are illegal in Massachusetts. So he could not have possibly had them.

Whatever it was it wasn't do to the little fireworks bought in NH.
I love fireworks all year round and this crap is just going to make those fun days even harder. I bet you could get 50% of Americans at some point buying a measly 400 hundred in fireworks.
I guess that will be the next thing added to the Domestic list.

it says mortar kits consisting of tubes, shells, and

black powder. They'll probably come up with more trips to NH, all perfectly unhindered, showing his drivers license and all.

here they are, not m-80s

Of course if he had wanted to

Of course if he had wanted to be really creative, he could have just made his own black powder. The basic recipe is sulfer, salt peter, and charcole(sugar works here too!), but that isnt going to get you a huge bang unless you do proper mixing and preparation.
I doubt the base ingredients are tracked as well as the prepared stuff.
