Mississippi man arrested in mailings of ricin letters to Obama, GOP senator

Mississippi man arrested in mailings of ricin letters to Obama, GOP senator | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it

click headline for full article....

 A Mississippi man was arrested Wednesday, accused of sending letters to President Barack Obama and a senator that tested positive for the poisonous ricin and set the nation’s capital on edge a day after the Boston Marathon bombings.

FBI Special Agent in Charge Daniel McMullen said the man was arrested Wednesday. He was identified as Paul Kevin Curtis, 45, of Corinth, Miss.

Authorities still waited for definitive tests on the letters to Obama and Sen. Roger Wicker, R-Miss. An FBI intelligence bulletin obtained by The Associated Press said those two letters were postmarked Memphis, Tenn.

Both letters said: “To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance.” Both were signed, “I am KC and I approve this message.”

The letters were intercepted before reaching the White House or Senate. The FBI said Wednesday that more testing was underway. Preliminary field tests can often show false positives for ricin.

As authorities scurried to investigate three questionable packages discovered in Senate office buildings, reports of suspicious items also came in from at least three senators’ offices in their home states.

Sen. Carl Levin said a staff member at his Saginaw, Mich., office would spend the night in a hospital as a precaution after discovering a suspicious letter. The staff member had no symptoms, Levin said in a statement. He expected to learn preliminary results of tests on the letter by Thursday.

Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., said suspicious letters at his Phoenix office had been cleared with nothing dangerous found. A package at Sen. John Cornyn’s Dallas-area office also was declared harmless, a fire department spokesman said.

All three packages in the Capitol complex turned out to be safe, Capitol police spokeswoman Makema Turner said late Wednesday. But a man was still being questioned after being stopped in connection with the packages, she said.

All the activity came as tensions were high in Washington and across the country following Monday’s bombings at the Boston Marathon that killed three people and injured more than 170. The FBI said there was no indication of a connection between the letters and the bombing. The letters to Obama and Wicker were postmarked April 8, before the marathon.

Capitol Police swiftly ramped up security, and lawmakers and staff were cautioned away from some parts of the Hill complex. After hours of jangled nerves, officials signaled it was safe to move throughout the area and people settled back to normal, if watchful, activity.

Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., said that police had a suspect in mind in the Wicker mailing, someone who “writes a lot of letters to members.” She made the comment Tuesday as she emerged from a briefing by law enforcement on the Boston bombing. Authorities declined to comment on a possible suspect.

Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, said mail sent to the White House is screened at a remote site for the safety of the recipients and the general public. He declined to comment on the significance of the preliminary ricin result, referring questions to the FBI.

At a House hearing, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe noted there had been ricin alerts since the notorious 2001 anthrax mailings and procedures are in place to protect postal employees and help track down culprits.

“Over the course of years we’ve had some situations where there have been ricin scares,” Donahoe said. “Until this date, there’s never been any actually proved that have gone through the system.”

After the hearing, Donahoe said he didn’t know whether the latest letters had been proven to contain ricin. He also told reporters that people sometimes mail substances that mimic the poison. No postal workers have reported illness connected to the incident, he said. Ricin, derived from the castor plant, is at its deadliest when inhaled.

Even during the flurry of concern, normal business continued across most of the Capitol and its office buildings, with tour groups passing through and visitors streaming in and out of Wicker’s office.

Senate Sergeant-at-Arms Terrance Gainer said in an email that suspicious packages were dropped off at the offices of two senators. Sen. Richard Shelby, R-Ala., said in a statement his office had received one of them. A third package was found in an atrium on the first floor of a Senate building.

As the discoveries spread concern, police sealed off a hearing room where Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, were testifying. At one point, officers advised Sen. Joe Manchin and aides not to board an elevator because suspicious packages had been found on several floors of the Hart Office Building. “They just told me there’s something suspicious and they’re looking into it,” Manchin said.

The Dirty Little Secret About Gun Control Laws...

The Dirty Little Secret About Gun Control Laws... | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The dirty little secret is that gun control laws do not actually
control guns.

 

Amid all the heated, emotional advocacy of gun control, have you ever heard even one person present convincing hard evidence that tighter gun control laws have in fact reduced murders?

Think about all the states, communities within states, as well as foreign countries, that have either tight gun control laws or loose or non-existent gun control laws. With so many variations and so many sources of evidence available, surely there would be some compelling evidence somewhere if tighter gun control laws actually reduced the murder rate.

And if tighter gun control laws don’t actually reduce the murder rate, then why are we being stampeded toward such laws after every shooting that gets media attention?

Have the media outlets that you follow ever even mentioned that some studies have produced evidence that murder rates tend to be higher in places with tight gun control laws?

The dirty little secret is that gun control laws do not actually control guns. They disarm law-abiding citizens, making them more vulnerable to criminals, who remain armed in disregard of such laws.

In England, armed crimes skyrocketed as legal gun ownership almost vanished under increasingly severe gun control laws in the late 20th century. (See the book “Guns and Violence” by Joyce Lee Malcolm). But gun control has become one of those fact-free crusades, based on assumptions, emotions and rhetoric.

What almost no one talks about is that guns are used to defend lives as well as to take lives. In fact, many of the horrific killings that we see in the media were brought to an end when someone else with a gun showed up and put a stop to the slaughter.

The Cato Institute estimates upwards of 100,000 defensive uses of guns per year. Preventing law-abiding citizens from defending themselves can cost far more lives than are lost in the shooting episodes that the media publicize. The lives saved by guns are no less precious, just because the media pay no attention to them.

Many people who have never fired a gun in their lives, and never faced life-threatening dangers, nevertheless feel qualified to impose legal restrictions that can be fatal to others. And politicians eager to “do something” that gets them publicity know that the votes of the ignorant and the gullible are still votes.

Virtually nothing that is being proposed in current gun control legislation is likely to reduce murder rates.

Restricting the magazine capacity available to law-abiding citizens will not restrict the magazine capacity of people who are not law-abiding citizens. Such restrictions just mean that the law-abiding citizen is likely to run out of ammunition first.

Someone would have to be an incredible sharpshooter to fend off three home invaders with just seven shots at moving targets. But seven is the magic number of bullets allowed in a magazine under New York State’s new gun control laws.

People who support such laws seem to blithely assume that they are limiting the damage that can be done by criminals or the mentally ill - as if criminals or mad men care about such laws.

Banning so-called “assault weapons” is a farce, as well as a fraud, because there is no concrete definition of an assault weapon. That is why so many guns have to be specified by name in such bans — and the ones specified to be banned are typically no more dangerous than others that are not specified.

Some people may think that “assault weapons” means automatic weapons. But automatic weapons were banned decades ago. Banning ugly-looking “assault weapons” may have aesthetic benefits, but it does not reduce the dangers to human life in the slightest. You are just as dead when killed by a very plain-looking gun.

 
littlebytesnews's insight:

Of course gun control laws are all about power and control, responding with emotion to a tragedy rather than common sense and an attempt to limit law abiding citizens rights to protect themselves while criminals will always break laws.

 

Give liberals facts and the truth and they'll get upset, but the bottom line is more gun control, limits on personal freedom are only about giving the government more power over the law abiding people.

Eren Schneiter's comment, April 18, 2013 11:00 AM
People will not be made safer by taking weapons away. All you are doing is limiting the availability of what they can use by a tiny fraction. People killed eachother before guns and they will continue to do so long after they are gone. The problem here is not guns nor their availability, but the fact that these shootings are given so much attention that sick people will see it as a way to make themselves go down in history. Stop focusing on the weapons and the shooters. Don't give them the glory they want. Instead, the government needs to focus more on supporting American Citizen's mental health better and making sure not that there are less weapons, but less people who are willing to do this sort of thing because they have obtained proper care to help them combat their issues.
Samantha Hafften's comment, April 18, 2013 11:05 AM
I agree, the attention should go toward the people who lost their lives and not on the murderer. The government does, in fact need to focus on the mental healthof people and not the weapons. I do have to say that our right, according to the 2nd amendment, is to bear arms, but nobody needs a huge weapon to protect themselves. I think that a small handgun would suffice. In conclusion, I do believe the government should limit the kinds of weapons citizens are able to purchase/have access to.

While it was rude and wrong of him to promote such a hateful campaign and to use such a song as an immature attack on someone he disliked, it doesn't excuse others for threatening him with death. 

 

Some people need to grow up and he's one of them, but so are his attackers. Never threaten someone with death just because you disagree with or dislike them!

What I thought was powerful in this article was not about the act of terror, we as americans refuse to be terrorized from this.  In Obama's words, we did not demonstrate terror, what we demonstrated was that of hope, heroism, and love.  We pulled together through it and you KNOW things are real when a republican leader from Texas goes out of his way to state, "this is not a democrat- republican matter, this is an American matter." Nice going, we get the point, but thanks for the clarification.  In other news, Obama is going to visit Boston? huh.

BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Friends of one of the three victims killed in the Boston Marathon bombings identify A second of three victims killed in the Boston Marathon bombings has been identified as

 

A 29-year-old restaurant manager has been identified as one of three people killed in the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

Her father says Krystle Campbell, of Medford, Mass., had gone with her best friend to take a picture of the friend's boyfriend crossing the finish line on Monday afternoon.

William Campbell says his daughter, who worked at Jimmy's Steakhouse in nearby Arlington, was "very caring, very loving person, and was daddy's little girl." He says the loss has devastated the family.

He says the friend was seriously injured in the explosion. William told The New York Daily News that doctors initially confused his daughter's identity with the friend who survived. He says they went to visit who they thought was their daughter in her hospital room only to find it was her friend. A police detective later arrived to show the family a photo of Krystle.

An 8-year-old, Martin Richard of Boston, also died. He was at the finish line watching the race with his family.

Photos:Could Reddit And 4chan's Boston Bombing 'Suspects' Be the Same as The ones the FBI is investigating?

Photos:Could Reddit And 4chan's Boston Bombing 'Suspects' Be the Same as The ones the FBI is investigating? | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Users of Reddit and 4chan identified a number of "suspects" in the Boston Marathon bombing and posted them online.

 

The search for a Boston Marathon bombing suspect has become a laboratory for the power of the Internet, as enterprising users of the Reddit and 4chan online networks spent the days following the terror attack trying to find "suspects" in the videos and photographs taken before, during and after two explosions that killed three people and injured dozens more Monday afternoon near the event's finish line.

The official hunt for a suspect was led by the FBI, and initial media reports on that investigation were vague, as the first description of a suspect only said that authorities were searching for a darker-skinned or black man with a black backpack and black sweatshirt, and that he would likely have a foreign accent and perhaps be a foreign national.

Other bits of evidence came out Tuesday and Wednesday, including a photograph reportedly of a backpack that may have been used to contain one of the bombs, details about and photos of the type of pressure cooker thought to be used to make one or both of the bombs, and more.

 

 Follow @IBTimes

 

 

Follow Connor Adams Sheets on Twitter

Redditors and 4chan users combined the evidence reported on in the media with their technological savvy and the power of crowd-sourcing to single out a number of individuals who fit a makeshift profile who were near the finish line Monday.

Reddit users even set up a whole section -- called a "subreddit" -- of the website calledFindBostonBombers for the express purpose of organizing the efforts by users to find the person or people responsible for the Monday attacks.

"This subreddit is a place for people to post images, links, and thoughts about the potential identities of those responsible for the bombing. HOWEVER, please keep in mind that most or all of the 'suspects' being discussed are innocent people," the FindBostonBombers subreddit description reads.

Ten of these "suspects" are pictured below, along with explanations of what the users who posted the images saw that made them single them out.

littlebytesnews's insight:

In the time of social media information is more and more quickly distributed. Thanks to users at the site Reddit, they have setup an account seeking the suspects and having users submit photos to an account and website in search of the Boston Bombers.

 

Federal authorities have said they will be releasing two photos of two suspects. Is it possible these are the men involved? Are these the same men the FBI is investigating?

 

Either way, let's hope this site and the release of these photos don't jeopardize the investigation and the suspects are caught soon and justice is served. Hopefully by posting these photos online will help capture the suspects, but also hopefully it won't help them cover their tracks once they realize investigators are hot on their tracks. Hopefully once officials release the photos they have and confirm who the suspects are we are able to capture them and they are not given the politically correct treatment like we have seen with Nidal Hasan who committed the violent attacks on our own military men and women on Ft. Hood. His trial has been a circus and been delayed one too many times.

 

We know he's guilty and we know it was an act of terror and he had associations/contact with Islamic terrorist Anwar Alwalki, yet the Obama admin and DOJ refuse to call it an act of war. Instead they labeled the Ft Hood attack as "workplace violence". Just like the Obama admin tried to coverup the initial attacks in Benghazi as something other than what it was. Instead the Obama admin, including former Sec of State, Hillary Clinton and others tried for weeks to blame the attacks on an unknown Youtube video that mocked the 'prophet Mohammed'. 

 

Sadly, the families of the Benghazi victims are still waiting for justice to be served, but many are losing hope because the investigation has been so slow and already six months have passed and nobody has spoken to survivors or heard from them except a select few members of Congress. Yet we have still not learned anything new.

 

In the meantime, families of victims of Fast and Furious, such as Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, who was killed by guns distributed by the ATF's botched gun running operation, have been left in the dark as well, especially after Obama issued an "executive privilege order" to prevent the investigation from going further and to protect DOJ Atty General Eric Holder from impeachment or any further investigation.

 

There have been way too many coverups and the complicit media has helped shove them under the rug. Just recently, as I mentioned in a previous post, they started reporting on the Gosnell murders/abortion trial. But if it doesn't fit the liberal agenda and policies you won't hear a thing about it or much of the information on any of these cases are hidden from the public. 

 

We can only hope that through new media/social media the truth will prevail and justice will be served. Please help share it and hold the media and this administration accountable. People's lives and our justice system are on the line.

littlebytesnews's insight:

I agree and the proof was in the humanity and charity shown after yesterdays terrorist attack, after 9/11 and after the Newtown massacare. Americans and civilized people come together and help one another in times of need and crises...not bring them down like terrorists try to do. We will emerge stronger, more prepared and more determined to live free and without fear despite what the terrorists and psychopaths of the world want.

Boston Marathon Bombing Rumors&Conspiracies Gone Wild

Boston Marathon Bombing Rumors&Conspiracies Gone Wild | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
Rumors and conspiracy theories associated with the Boston Marathon bombing.
littlebytesnews's insight:

It happens everytime a mass tragedy occurs...possibly it is antoehr way for some people to cope with the realities of such violence and devestation.

 

Either way, people shouldn't jump to conclusion without basing it on factual evidence. Otherwise it's all speculation and rumors and at best a conspiracy theory. 

 

I am not a 911 Truther, I believe  real, just as I believe we landed on the moon. I have my doubts about Obama's eligibilty just because he has hidden so much of his past from elementary school records through college records and more. 

 

Overall, I do not believe our government is competent enough to carry out so many 'false flag' attacks successfully and without others spilling the beans. It would take too many people willing to commit treason against our country to          make any of these theories legitimate. 

 

People give too much credit to our incompetent government and need to just accept that there is evil in this world and their are people who want to harm us, whether it be foreign terrorists, domestic terrorists or psychopath nuts like Adam Lanza.

 

Sadly, these tragedies are often used to limit our freedoms more and give more power to the federal government, especially when we live under a government/leadership that doesn't respect our individual rights and freedoms, such as the Obama administration which has shown they disrespect our Constitution and unalienable rights to bear arms and  other freedoms. 

 

I do still question who the "man on the roof'' is and it doesn't sound like Snopes, which I'm not always a fan of because they are known to lean left, nor ABC has proven it was not someone involved in the Boston Marathon bombings yesterday, which killed three and injured over 140. Hopefully as the days go on we will learn more about who that person on the roof is and why they were there and who the actual suspects are so justice may be served.

 

I also lack trust in this administration and can see why so many might let their imagine nations run wild, but we have to keep our sanity and common sense. We have to look at everything with perspective and facts. We can't let them make us so paranoid that it allows the terrorists to succeed and the government to take more of our rights and freedoms away.

littlebytesnews's insight:

That's nice, now if only Newsbusters, WND, MRC and other conservative online outlets would get together and start a larger network, like a television network and radio network that reports actual news not just commentary like MSNBC and CNN.

 

I like that Fox mixes it up, but sometimes even they have failed us. Overall they are our only national news source we can rely on, other than Fox I rely on numerous online outlets, foreign and domestic, which have more investigative journalism than the mainstream media.

#Breaking-EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Boston Marathon bomb

#Breaking-EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: Boston Marathon bomb | Littlebytesnews Current Events | Scoop.it
The bomb that exploded at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon sent shock waves across the country.

The bomb that exploded at the finish line of Monday's Boston Marathon sent shock waves across the country.  Crime scene photos obtained exclusively by FOX 5 Atlanta are the first look at what is left of the first deadly device.

The investigation into the explosion is already well underway, as agents sift through the remaining pieces of the bomb-- hoping to draw a clear picture of how it was built, where it was built, and ultimately, who built it.

CLICK ON HEADLINE ABOVE TO SEE MORE IMAGES AND VIDEO

The Associated Press has reported that the device was a pressure cooker bomb-- common cookware throughout the world.  The crime scene pictures obtained by the FOX 5 I-Team show pieces of a stainless steel pressure cooker with an Underwriters Laboratory number. One picture shows the imprint: Gas and Electric.   

Another picture shows what appears to be a black, padded knapsack or duffel bag. Various news outlets have reported that the bomb was carried in a black bag.  

Massachusetts General Hospital doctors described removing pellets and headless nails from the bodies of bombing victims. Both doctors and federal agents believe the shrapnel was included to make the bomb deadlier.  One of the crime scene picture obtained by the FOX 5 I-Team shows what appear to be ball bearings or small metal pellets.

The FBI had no comment about the crime scene photos.

Confirmed:The Saudi suspect ruled out as a suspect, according to Sr Law Enforcement and Steve Emerson, founder of Investigative Project on Terrorism. Steve Emerson said domestic,white extremist groups typically use guns to carry out attacks and then kill themselves. The OK city bombing was an exception, but that might have been influenced by jihadists according to some reports.
 
Yesterday several reports of additional bombs being detonated were reported and today they have been ruled out.
