Lets see, they found a bunch of bombs including a pressure cooker bomb. An Afghaistani immigrant, Ahmad Khan Rahami, was seen on surveillance video at the scene of more than one bomb and is being sought. [UPDATE – captured] But they still can’t say what the motive for the bombings might have been.
Do you think it might be somehow related to Islamic terrorism?
Trump said it was a bomb and the media painted him as a reactionary extremist jumping to conclusions. Hillary said it was a bomb and . . . . crickets.
Gee, are they afraid of saying Islam? Don’t want to offend anyone? Imagine if a white supremacist was suspected. Is there a double standard?
Could it possibly be Islamic terrorism? Nah. Don’t jump to conclusions. Wait until you have enough information. Then you will just be an Islamaphobe.
Same Suspect Believed Involved In NYC, NJ Blasts
Authorities Seeking 28-Year-Old Ahmad Khan Rahami
From CBS News: September 19, 2016 8:45 AM
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Authorities are seeking a man who they said “should be considered armed and dangerous” in connection with Saturday’s blast in Chelsea.
The NYPD tweeted Monday morning that 28-year-old Ahmad Khan Rahami was sought by authorities. He is a naturalized citizen from Afghanistan.
Federal sources told CBS News that Rahami is believed to be connected to an unexploded pressure cooker device found near the Chelsea blast,an explosion in Seaside Park, New Jersey and five explosive devicesfound in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
Officials say surveillance video placed Rahami at the scene of both Chelsea explosion and the unexploded device blocks away, CBS New reported.
Investigators believe Rahami may be part of a terror cell and consider him extremely dangerous, CBS News correspondent Jeff Pegues reported.
“We need to get this guy in right away,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said on CNN. “My experience is one the FBI zeroes in on someone, they will get them.”
Authorities said his last known address was in Elizabeth, New Jersey,where the FBI and the ATF conducted a raid early Monday morning.
Speaking earlier Monday on “CBS This Morning,” Gov. Andrew Cuomo said “it may very well turn out that there was a foreign connection” to the Chelsea incident, which he called “an act of terrorism.”
Meanwhile, one of the devices found late Sunday night at the Elizabeth train station exploded while the bomb squad was trying to disarm it using a robot.
The device that exploded Saturday in Seaside Park happened ahead of a 5K charity race. No one was injured.
The FBI has also released a wanted posted for Rahami.
Rahami is about 5’ 6” tall and weighs approximately 200 pounds. He has brown hair, brown eyes and brown facial hair.
