UPDATE below: FBI closing in on bomb suspect
Butler Shaffer writes to Lew Rockwell:
I was thinking yesterday, what sort of catastrophe or other tragic event might the Established Order dream up to affect the upcoming election? And then I awoke to this morning’s news: pipe-bombs – none of which apparently went off – sent to all the anti-Trump people! The ancient Romans – along with Rothbard – would have figured out which question to ask: “cui bono”, who would have benefitted from such an act? Boobus Americanus is so hopelessly innocent when it comes to understanding the duplicitous nature of all political behavior. “Provocateuring” is not even in the vocabulary.It is probably just a lone nutjob but here are direct beneficiaries, since the pipe bombs have taken the killing of Jamal Khashoggi off the front pages:
Muhammed bin Salman
Israel (Since it helps keep the Saudi-US-Israeli Axis of evil intact)
I wouldn't eliminate any of these from my suspects list.
