Boston Marathon bombs similar to Bill Ayers' Weather Underground nail bomb

Ayers at Occupy Chicago rally
The Chicago Sun-Times has compiled a list of domestic bombings since 1886. Included in the list are two by Bill Ayers' former group, the Weather Underground. Ayers and his fellow former terrorist wife, Bernardine Dohrn, are close friends of President Obama, who did not call yesterday's Boston Marathon bombings as acts of terror.

Reports coming in from Boston are describing the deadly bombs as devices similar to the Weather Underground nail bomb that exploded prematurely in 1970, killing three of Ayers' terrorist friends. That device was intended to be detonated at a soldiers' dance at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

As for yesterday's tragedy, one man had 37 nails removed from his legs.

UPDATE 10:35 AM CDT: In a statement just now, Obama did call the marathon bombings terrorism.

I've heard second-hand accounts that Pres. Obama called the bombings terrorism. Can anybody find the actual quote?

Not on the day of the attacks but on the day after. Why wait to long?

Mitch H. said...

The bombs did not resemble the Greenwich Village nailbomb. that device was a water pipe packed with dynamite and nails, to be detonated by a crude mechanical clock device connected to fuses. The Boston Marathon devices were, at first report, commercial pressure-cookers packed with smokeless gunpowder, nails, and ball bearings or shotgun pellets, hooked up to a device built around an electronic Casio watch. The devices reportedly resemble a common recipe found among Afghani bombmakers - including that specific Casio model - which have been popularized by said recipe's publication in al Qaeda's English-language magazine. So, either al Qaeda, or somebody who reads al Qaeda, or somebody who just managed to google the recipe online somewhere.

The cruelty is the same--nails in a bomb meant to maim.

Robert Williams said...

Note that the Fort Dix dance would be filled mostly with young men in their 20's (NCO's) and their wives or girlfriends.

Ayers and Dohrn are heinous, and now beloved by the liberals, the Left and academia, and much favored by Obama and the Democrats.

Has Obama ever renounced Ayers?

Jane said...

Ayers, Dohrn and their buddy who just got a teaching job should be forced to go to Boston, and read to the victims until the last one is home.

Steverino said...

Does that mean that if Obama catches the Boston Marathon bomber, he will be sentenced to a full professorship at an Ivy League college?

chesnj said...

The only difference between Ayres and Dohrn and the Boston bomber is that Ayers and Dohrn were incompetent.

Occam's Beard said...

Why refer to Ayers as a "former terrorist?" He never renounced terrorism. Maybe he's just in between bombings.

"Ayers and his fellow former terrorist wife, Bernardine Dohrn, are close friends of President Obama" That's utter BS.

Anonymous said...

It is not BS. The 'close' is subjective, but Bill Ayers certainly hosted political parties introducing Obama as an up and coming politician. Obama and Ayers have certainly spent time together deliberately, not just by-coincidence-on-same-committee. Obama has not denounced Bill Ayers or his cop-killing wife, Bernie Dorne.

We have seen the graphic horror of Boston on April 15, 2013.

People killed, including a young boy. Others are in critical condition and may not survive. Dozens with traumatic amputations. Innocent bystanders watching a festive race on a Boston holiday ripped to pieces by devastating blasts. Lives torn asunder, doubtful that they, if ever, will be made whole.

Terrifying, nauseating and mind numbing.

What if the Boston bomber, despite being apprehended and tried was let loose on a technicality? What if this bastard was allowed to go free and become a 'sought after' friend of politicians? What if he endorsed a future president of the USA? Would you vote for such a candidate? You probably did already!


Imagine, if you will, bombs going off in the US Capitol Building, the Pentagon, US State Department and MANY other places including police stations, banks and universities (many dozens of bombs in all) which killed and maimed many. Imagine bombings happening so often that you shudder to watch the news.

Imagine the bombing of the church where a funeral service of a police officer killed in one of the bombings was being held.

Imagine the firebombing of a New York Supreme Court judge's home.

Imagine New York City's Police Headquarters bombed with a ten stick dynamite bomb.

Imagine violent robberies to fund the terrorist organization which caused the deaths of police officers and civilians alike.

Imagine bombing and terrorism so rampant that society verged on the brink of collapse.


You don't have to imagine. This happened in the late 60's and early 70's over a period of about five years at the hands of terrorist organizations, ostensibly labelled 'peaceful' protest groups today by the revisionist media. These groups, the SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) and the Weathermen (AKA Weather Underground), were hyperactive in their spread of bloody violence and an unrelenting terror campaign.

William Ayers was a prominent leader of both above mentioned groups. He was also instrumental in disseminating this plague of terror.

In sworn testimony before the U.S. Senate Internal Security Subcommittee on October 18 1974, an FBI informant declared,

“ "When he [Bill Ayers] returned, we had another meeting at which time -- and this is the only time that any Weathermen told me about something that someone else had done -- and Bill started off telling us about the need to raise the level of the struggle and for stronger leadership inside the Weathermen 'focals' [i.e., cells] and inside the Weatherman organization as a whole. And he cited as one of the real problems was that someone like Bernardine Dohrn had to plan, develop and carry out the bombing of the police station in San Francisco, and he specifically named her as the person that committed that act."

Bernardine Dohrn is Mrs. William Ayers. The bombing mentioned above killed a San Francisco policeman, Sgt. Brian V. McDonnell. Another officer, Robert Fogarty, received serious wounds to his face and legs, and was partially blinded in the attack.

He was eventually arrested with Dohrn, but in a mockery and travesty of justice, they are free today because of technicalities. As a matter of fact, he is a 'professor emeritus' at the University of Illinois and a visiting professor at a number of other universities throughout the nation.

In his own words, he wrote that he is "Guilty as hell, free as a bird—it’s a great country."

He currently lives in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Chicago. In 2001, the year of the terrible 9/11 terrorist attacks he told the New York Times, "I don't regret setting bombs" and "I feel we didn't do enough."

Anonymous said...

Didn't do enough!?!?

In May 1970, the SDS issued a Declaration of War against the United States authored by Bernardine Dohrn who was later to become Ayers wife but not until other members of the group, including Ayers girlfriend at the time, blew themselves up in a bomb making factory in Greenwich Village New York.

He should have been sent to prison, along with Dohrn, for the rest of his life, if not executed for the prolific terrorism he and his cronies wrought throughout America.

In 1995, Barack Obama announced his candidacy for higher office at the home of his good friends, neighbors and mentors, Ayers and Dohrn. In 1989, Obama was a summer intern at Michelle Obama's law firm. One of Michelle's co-workers was Bernadine Dohrn. So the relationship between the Obamas and Ayers has spanned over twenty years.

Do you, for one second, believe that the downward death spiral of the USA has not been scripted in advance in Hyde Park?

As far as the Boston Bombing goes, once we find out who did this, after a fair trial, if a guilty verdict is handed down, a public execution is in order.

That is unless you want a future president coming forth into the public arena from the home of the Boston Marathon bomber's home.

It's already happened once.

Sunil is A LEFTIE bomber! What an *INconvenient* truth!!! (Note the Che t-shirt in some photos). In time, we’ll see if there is a Saudi/alQaeda link. TBD. BUT:

NOW is a golden opportunity for the Right/Conservatives to
HAMMER America’s Left with this act of terror on the United States.
Make Bill Ayers’ chickens come home to roost.

What i find amazing is the level of hypocrisy that all the leftists in Boston are showing. Everone wants both of these guys DEAD! They wont execute any other murderers or rapists but they want both these guys executed because they blew up bombs in Boston. Total hypocrisy! Where is your tolerance lefties? Maybe we could call it retroactive abortion!

Anonymous said...

I have no problem with them executing these guys but maybe a trial would be in order first. Too bad Massachusetts abolished the death penalty!

Cath Brookes said...

I just want to know how Dear Leader will react to this news.

I gather understanding motivations is definitely the Wrong Way to try try to deal with terrorism, if you're an officially proud Canadian.

If Harper, or any member of his cabinet, wishes to say some words about where these attackers came from, or whether events in Russia over the last decades motivated them, then those cabinet members should resign before doing so.

You have to understand what Obama said and why he said it.
He used the weasel word "innocent."
“Anytime bombs are used to target innocent civilians it is an act of terror.”
If targeting civilians is immoral, why use the qualifier "innocent"?
However, the text of his words do not convey him stumbling over the word "innocent. It is worth watching here:

He can still be good friends with Bill Ayers and not consider him a terrorist, because Ayers was bombing the "military/industrial complex"--any bystanders were collatoral damage and probably deserved what they got by associating with military personnel.
"Palestinians" and Arabs do not target "innocent civilians", because any "zionist" is an occupier and combatant.

The University of Colorado professor, "Walking Eagle" called the fatalities in the World Trade Center "little Eichmans" and legitimate targets.
Jihadists can justify killing Infidels, since they are not "innocent" civilians.
Obama is using the same language of the enemies of Israel and the United States-- and doesn't think anyone will notice.
