Breaking: A Package Bomb "Ignites" In a Government Sorting Facility, In DC This Time; No Injuries Reported Yet

Hang on, I'm doing more on this, but this is breaking, so I'm putting it up.

"Lone wolf," supposedly.

As you know, a note was contained with yesterday's Maryland-area packages, which sounds like it either comes from:

1, an angry Muslim,

2, an angry leftist, or

3, an angry anti-government libertarian sort who is not clearly a leftist or a Muslim.

The letter quotes area street signs urging citizens to "Report Suspicious Activity," and finds fault with that:

"Report suspicious activity. Total Bullshit. You have created a self-fulfilling prophecy."

That sounds to me more like a leftist, because that's what they always claim-- the violence that comes from external "Others" is actually caused by our own bad decisions and provocations. They love excusing Muslim violence on those terms. The letter seems to be inspired by the whole Michael Moore/Naomi Klein/"disaster capitalism" conspiracy theory, where somehow our irrational fear becomes (through some magical process) a real, tangible threat, but it's our fault, because we willed it into existence -- or, more precisely, we feared it into existence.

I'm calling leftist. And then I imagine the story will be buried and blamed on "anti-immigration extremists," as happened with the clearly leftist Discovery Channel Building leftist/environmental terrorist case.

"Don't Call It a Bomb:" Shep Smith says government officials are refusing to call it a bomb and are in fact asking the media not to call them that. While this thing is technically a bomb, whether the media wants to call it that or not, it could be intended to scare people rather than kill them. So it could basically be a fireworks device -- sort of dangerous, but unlikely to be lethal.
