The current indications are that the terrorists involved in the Boston bombing were Islamists. The pressure cooker bombs and the subsequent ricin letters attacks are the marks of Islamists terrorisms. Keep in mind, that a radical-right anarchist would not have attacked Senator Wicker, a conservative Republican from Mississippi.
So if the Boston terrorists were Islamists, which we will soon find out, there is allso a strong risk that they will use camel pox, a bioterror agent that is likely available to Islamists, for which the only reasonable treatment is SIGA's drug.
I think yhat the federal Government should expedite their purchases from SIGA to preempt a potential terror by the evil doers.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I am afraid that the federal government may try to blame domestic terrorism for the Boston bombing EVEN IF THE EVIDENCE CLEARLY INDICATES THAT ISLAMISTS WERE THE CULPRITS. While there may be some political reasons for such a false blame, it would be a serious mistake. A similar move was attempted by Spain's government when they tried to blame Basque terrorists for a clear Al-queda terror act – a move that ultimately caused the collapse of that government.
So if extreme-right terrorism is blamed for the Boston bombing, I won't believe it. I cannot imagine why a non-Islamist terrorist would try to maximize casualties by packing the bomb with nails and bbs. Islamist terrorists, on the other hand, have done so even in their own countries.
This is one of the most ridiculous comments I have read on these boards (and I have read a ton). The Federal Government will blame whoever is responsible and not rush conclusions just to appease the public's demand for information.
Islamic terrorists generally take responsibility for their attacks. It is a central component of their information operations. Here, no one has claimed responsibility.
You can't imagine why non-Islamic terrorists would try to maxximize casualties by packing bombs with nails and bbs? Why not? It is highly effective, cheap and easy to make. I recommend you take a look at the 96' Olympic attacks this elusive white whale that you speak of.
Your comments are unintelligent and lack any reasoning whatsoever. Stick to the cartoons and let the experts figure out what transpired in Boston.
Oh REALLY?!?!? How are the current indications so? You're wasting your time dummy, no one of importance that would EVER make a decision about an antiviral drug buy reads these boards. You're not scaring anyone up. Trust me on this one.
"Current indications".....this is how we run into trouble and how BS rumors start.
I remember my aunt Bea causing a pressure cooker explosion in the 1ST Baptist church basement kitchen when I was just a pup. Though it was from the fire & brimstone sermon being delivered on the pulpit that morning directed at sinners but as it turned out it was from a faulty gasket. Luckily no one was injured but just goes to show you just never know.

Detective John McClain: "Thank you for solving the case Isaac_DJ. We couldn't prove Islamists were behind the attack without your keen deductive reasoning. Job well done John!"
