Seems the suspect in the shootings
is reported to have been seen in Oslo before the explosions. And now there is one report at least that explosives were found on the island at the camp.
Story is still not certain, but looking more like some local wacko? Or it could be growing resentment toward immigration? The anti al_Qaeda?
6:55 p.m. ET: More is now coming in from people
close to the investigation raising the likelihood that the attacks were
home-grown and not the work of Islamic militants.Addressing
whether the 32-year-old Norwegian suspect might be affiliated with
al-Qaida or another group, Oslo's acting police acting chief said at a
late-night news conference: "We do not know if he was involved in an
extremist environment."And Tore Bjorgo, a professor at Norwegian
Police University College — which state broadcaster NRK reported is
working with police on the investigation — said the fact that the second
attack was directed at a political youth organization suggested the
involvement of local or European right-wing extremists.
Suspect charged and home grown indeed
But from the looks of the damage and the amount of activity that might be involved in setting explosives, I have to wonder if this could be the work of a lone individual. I've not yet heard if they've determined the origin of the blast(s) but it was mentioned that a blackened vehicle was among the rubble. I'd think a blast of that size from a car bomb wouldn't leave enough of it to be recognizable as such. It does appear likely that the blast was from the outside, however, as building damage seems to be limited to the facades.
RE: Love Thy Neighbor? Any guesses who did it?
A religious person/fanatic?
Fanatic...Yes! Religious person...No!
Love Thy Neighbor?
Paraphrase from Bible?
Thought it was a clue/hint.
More than likely a clue or hint
as to false, corrupt, or improperly practiced religion.
No just another Tim
yes, a quote from Christ. One who considers others in a country to be "foreign" might not consider them as "neighbor" but those who are of one's own ethnic background would almost certainly be considered "neighbor". Christ had a comment about a Samaritan though in regards to what is a "neighbor". A Samaritan was a "mixed" individual of Jewish blood however, not completely "foreign". They were treated by Judeans however as "gentiles" to a large degree due to long time feud between the northern and southern halves of Israel from the time the kingdom split in two.
he could be a disgruntled individual that never got to go to summer camp.
Or someone sick of Socialism
So...Are you sick of Socialism?
and what are you going to do about it?
Like Pinky and the Brain
I'll do what I do every day, go out and try to take over the world.
That would hardly be a reason ...
to kill 85 of them, would it? I'm rather sure you wouldn't.
He's been described here on TV as extreme right-wing, a neo-Nazi and a fundamental Christian.
well, maybe it was
never going to summer camp as JP Bill reasons.
I'm guessing that your initial guess....
...as to who did it was quite incorrect.
He's a sociopath of the criminal type
I believe someone created a 1 to 10 scale regarding these with the most dangerous to be those who can plan and carry out heinous crimes without remorse. His brain is miss-wired, chemically imbalanced, etc.
