Washington may exploit Boston blasts for militarizing US cities: James Fetzer

An analyst tells Press TV that the US administration will use the Boston bombings as an excuse to tighten security within its borders by increasing military presence in the US cities.

The FBI has released photographs and video footage of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings and asked for public help in identifying them. The agency made the images public on Thursday and described the suspects “armed and extremely dangerous.” The images show two men, one wearing a dark-colored baseball cap and the other a white cap, walking together near the finish line of the April 15 marathon where two bomb explosions killed three people and injured over 170 others.

Press TV has conducted an interview with James H. Fetzer, professor emeritus at the University of Minnesota, Madison, to further talk over the issue. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV: How exactly are you feeling at this point about this investigation and about the FBI calling these two men suspects at this point?

Fetzer: It looks to me as though this is part of a very clever cover-up because of the men look a great deal like the bona fide suspects whose images have appeared before at legitgov.org, citizens for legitimate government, what really happened in other websites who were wearing US military police off-duty attire with caps that had a skull image on it indicating these were probably SEALs. They have backpacks. They were on cell phones. They were not watching the marathon. They appear to be the real suspects.

So I think that having one of these fellows with a cap on that had a fuzzy image, they could claim that the photos of the skullcap were simply a misidentification. I do not believe that was the case at all.

Moreover, it appears as though the bombings were really intended to distract attention from a major report about the US having engaged in torture during the Bush-Cheney administration continued by the Obama administration, which was released on the 15th too and reported in the New York Times on the 16th, but it was blown off at the front page by the Boston bombing.

The false flag meme however seems to be catching up with the American government because Yahoo News has now asked who is behind the Boston marathon bombings and four theories: Islamic jihadists, right-wing militia types, the government or a criminally-insane lone wolf.

The government appearing on that list is very telling, very important, very significant, that the people are catching on to these false flag attacks.

Press TV: So then professor, would it be fair to say that Muslims are then right in fearing what is come for them?

Fetzer: Well, it does not look from the pinning the tail on the two patsies that are shown in these photographs the FBI just released; neither of whom is Middle Eastern. It looks to me as though the claim is going to be that this was a domestic terrorist plot and that it is going to be used to increase pressures on gun control and to manipulate the American people using military intervention in police matters, which violates what is known as Posse Comitatus.

I believe this is another encroachment on our civil rights and that the government is going to push it aggressively as a form that this was a domestic terrorist act requiring a greater military presence in American cities.
