Willie-O BS: Oslo Bombing and Shooting at Youth Camp (317* d) RE: BS: Oslo Bombing and Shooting at Youth Camp 23 Jul 11


So appalling it's hard to express. Makes me think of many youth conferences I went to--the beautiful tiny island location made it a death trap for this politically motivated psycho. I am still thinking there must have been more than one shooter (consider how the death toll suddenly, dramatically rose last night as more bodies were discovered), which news reports have only hinted at.

Don't forget, early news reports about a crisis like this are notoriously inaccurate--and not just the first hours, often the inaccuracies continue for days once they're fed into the media amplifier. Eyewitness accounts are important but not often inaccurate as well--we as a species are not good at dispassionate observation of confusing and terrifying events.

My guess is the "Helpers of Jihad" which claimed to have launched the attack are none other than Anders Breivik and his accomplices. Just an early disinformation component of their plan, both a red herring and an attempt to provoke action against Muslims.

Terrorizing the next generation of moderate liberals and their parents--who will think twice about the next time their kids are invited to a political event. This is so very disgusting.

W-O
