Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, told ABC News homegrown terrorists are such an ominous threat they keep him awake at night.
“These lone wolves, these homegrown violent extremists are people who keep me up at night,” Holder said from London.
Holder said “the experience that we had in Boston is instructive. It only takes one or — or two people to really do something horrific.”
Scant Evidence Implicating Tsarnaev
Dzhokhar Tsnarnaev is awaiting trial in the Boston Bombing case and his brother Tamerlan was killed by police last April in Watertown, Massachusetts.
The case against the brothers hinges on a video that supposedly shows the pair placing a backpack containing a bomb near the Marathon site.
The video was never released to the public.
Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said he was briefed on the video by law enforcement.
“It does seem to be pretty clear that this suspect took the backpack off, put it down, did not react when the first explosion went off and then moved away from the backpack in time for the second explosion,” Patrick said, although he had not actually viewed the video.
Dzhokhar Tsnarnaev was subsequently convicted in the court of public opinion as a result of negative corporate media coverage which has fueled the domestic terror meme pushed by Holder and the government.
“The Tsarnaev case is a tragedy because, for the first time there is a sector of the public who refuses to believe this farce that is being paraded as a points scored by Homeland Security,” explains the Justice for Tsarnaev web page. “Also, if reading the affidavit that indicts Tsarnaev, there is very little in it that says he confessed or that there are witnesses who claim, or even that there is even video proof of what he has allegedly done.”
The ISIS Threat Keeps War On Terror Alive
During the ABC News interview Holder said the government is concerned about Saudi native Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri, the so-called Yemeni bomber who masterminded the fizzle bomb carried aboard Northwest Airlines Flight 253 in 2009 by Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab at the behest of Pentagon dinner host Anwar al-Awlaki.
Holder also said ISIS, the CIA-Saudi supported terror organization now calling itself the Islamic State, is a major concern and may engage in future attacks against the United States.
Eric Holder’s interview feeds into an increasingly hyperbolic propaganda campaign designed to coincide with the emergence of ISIS, an enemy engineered to be especially inexorable and requiring renewed emphasis on an interminable war on terror.
