Police work may find a shred of evidence that allows national agencies to search outside the US. They'll dig up a lot, which they pass to the FBI, and along with state and local agencies, they expand their search/investigation with new evidence.

I know some of the folks at those agencies. Sharpest folks you'll ever find outside places like Google and Apple. Those companies actually poach their employees from the federal agencies.
IMO----

This is something that was done totally within the US.

Likely lone wolf of two types:

(1) disgruntled for Army soldier who was affected by Iraq. He likely had training on IEDs. He either was wounded by one or knew people who were. He didnt like the lack of compassion in the country for soldiers (esepecially true in NE) so this was done with the intent of people here understand what its really like.

(2) the person has some ties to Iraq/Afghanistan whos family was affected by an IED so they did it here

1.) Soldiers and Marines don't get that type of training. They learn to identify the signs of an implanted IED. There's no training on composition aside from basic components. There's no training on construction of devices. Even the EOD folks don't get trained to build them, just disarm them.

You have the exact same level of instruction on IED building that any Marine or Soldier has, from the internet. Not to say a Soldier or Marine didn't do it, but they've got no special abilities to do so.

2.) Based on the reported pressure-cooker construction of the devices, this might be possible. We saw lots of these types of devices in Afghanistan. I was a recon company commander in an airborne unit, and we did a lot of dismounted movement in Afghanistan. This type of device was my #1 daily concern.

All that said, these things are incredibly easy to construct with simple instructions obtained on the internet. Anyone could have done this.

And there in lies the biggest problem. Not only in finding who did this attack but preventing future ones.

Prevention is the hardest thing to carry out. So many people could just do this. It's hard to pinpoint it before it happens. It's not impossible by any stretch though.

I'll give you 5 bucks if you say "Hey, guess what" at least 10 times on the date.

Only 5? It'll cost 5 to ship the 5 from Seattle to here!

BTW for Jaeger and anyone else, the police have identified remains of a pressure cooker in the Boston incident, FWIW.

I'll add $5 to that if after every time your date says "What?" you reply "Chicken butt!" like the six-year old next door.

On the final leg of my collegiate career. Just three weeks left.

Typically, I've had a ridiculously busy semester and have as such missed a bunch of my exit course classes. I make it to one today, only to realize that I have a paper due by the end of class.

Left early to write it.

Yikes.

I'd probably do it if it was someone else and not the girl I'm taking out haha. But now whenever the six year old neighbor says that, you can be reminded of a poster on the board here!

I'd like to talk to you about your shipping costs, Mr. What. It seems you're overpaying substantially.

Looks like you're paying too much for stamps. Should have made the investment in forever stamps when they were a few cents cheaper...

Or you could send it educational media mail - which would be more expensive - but then you can declare it as a "lesson learned".

Ah, but I did!

My retirement investments are all in forever stamps, but I'm sure as hell not going to use those babies when I can use 46 centers!
