So Peter King is sure the Tsarnaevs didn't act alone...

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Republican blowhard Peter King is convinced the Boston Marathon bombers didn't bomb alone:

Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), the former chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security, said Sunday that he did not believe the suspects in last month's Boston Marathon bombings acted alone.

"It's very difficult to believe these two could have carried out this level of attack with this level of sophistication and precision acting by themselves, without training overseas or having at least facilitators at home," King said.

King, who sits on the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said it appeared from the effectiveness of the dual bombings that Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, had some help.

"To me, there had to be assistance and that's why the FBI, I think, is going after this so vigorously," King said.

Maybe, maybe not, but King is one to know.

I mean, he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), and where would that terrorist organization that left so many civilians dead (in the United Kingdom, a close U.S. friend and ally) have been without so much enthusiastic (and political/financial) support from across the ocean, from King and his terrorism-enabling ilk?

He was, and remains, a shameless hypocrite.

(And really, the Tsarnaev brothers acted with "sophistication and precision"? I would say the opposite is true, which is why there wasn't more damage and why they were identified and caught so quickly. Indeed, as former CIA Deputy Director Philip Mudd put it, the attack was more Columbine than al Qaeda. Yes, King is apparently that stupid as well.)
