@Draculya: You're very smart, I enjoy your posts, and I am in no way trying to rub your nose into anything here. But I will point out that only one of the two suspects, the younger, was an American, having received his U.S. citizenship just seven months ago. The older brother was more recently arrived and was here on a green card.
Part of what Ollie was basing his original prediction on wasn`t simply a dislike of Muslims (which I think it`s safe to say he harbors), but the use of pressure-cooker bombs. He was arguing that such bombs suggested the actors were either foreign Muslims (who`ve been using such bombs in numerous theaters) or were frequenting jihadist websites (where instructions for such bombs have been published). Ollie`s instincts there proved right.

I apologise. I was wrong. I didn't take into account white American terrorists who happen to be muslim. I think a more accurate description would be Muslin terrorists who happen to be white, only insofar as they are from the Caucasus region of southwest Asia, and American only insofar as they were brought here by their immigrant parents, but never actually assimilated.
