*** UPDATE ***
As I suspected, the RCMP press conference so far is partially self congratulatory (perhaps rightfully so actually) but as most of us predicted, was designed to deny us more information than they gave us. With each press conference after the arrest of muslims for terror in Canada, they see what buzz words we learn to decode, then deny us those so that we may not connect the ideology or motive for terrorist acts with the terrorist acts. In this case, the RCMP have reached an Obamaesque level of new-speak in order to make sure we cannot know why these two people, who were clearly muslim, attempted to blow up pressure cooker bombs and kill as many as they could on Canada’s national day.
It is also significant that they gave the suspect’s English names when a dollar gets you a dime they had taken muslim ones and used them for some time now.
I would however like to congratulate the media present. They saw the obfuscation and in a typically Canadian way, politely asked over and over again in as many ways as they could think of whether or not this was islamic terror. Eventually the junior officer answered a question by the CBC in such a convoluted way they he accidentally revealed that it was, although his intention was to say that it was a purely criminal act and had no religious connection although it was inspired by Al Qaeda.
I will put together the relevant questions in this video and skip the press conference, as we now are used to in the modern West, press conferences are to hide information and because the Q&A are both more informative as well as a hell of a lot funnier.
I hope to have this ready in a couple of hours.
