Rep. McCaul: Boston Bombing Suspects Likely Had Training



The chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee says he believes the Boston Marathon bombing suspects had some training in carrying out their attack.

Rep. Michael McCaul is citing the type of device used in the attack — shrapnel-packed pressure-cooker bombs — and the weapons' sophistication as signs of training.

Homemade bombs built from pressure cookers have been a frequent weapon of militants in Afghanistan, India and Pakistan. Al-Qaida's branch in Yemen once published an online manual on how to make one.

McCaul also tells "Fox News Sunday" that he thinks the suspects' mother played "a very strong role" in her sons' radicalization process and that if she were to return to the United States from Russia, she'd be held for questioning.


  1. Well, duh, the Beltway Snipers trained at the Jamaat al-Fuqra down the road from Patrick Henry's birthplace at Red House, VA. It is only one of many similar subversive compounds all over America. Read Gates of Vienna for the big picture.

    The Eagles sang, "Frail Grasp on the Big Picture." That once was I but no more. If you have to live 80 years you might as well learn something along the way. This blog has probably contributed as much or more to my education as Lee Edwards High School, NC State College, the Southern Baptist Church and all else have.

    Have a great PATCON. I'll be here in Advanced Health Care of Aurora, cheering for you and telling these Nubian beauties, who treat me, about you and showing them the picture of the previous hog.

    1. Hope you get well soon Mr. Smith and the injury heals well. See you at the next one.

  2. Thanks and too bad you can't come. Shoot for October!
