Suicide Bomber in the US?

Did we have our first suicide bomber in the United States...and if so why isn't everyone talking about it?! Could it be the same reason we weren't shown the jumpers after 9/11? Fear of backlash and discrimination against Muslims trumps full disclosure, American security and awareness?!

"One person was killed in an explosion near a packed football stadium at the University of Oklahoma on Saturday night in what authorities said appeared to be a suicide.

The blast, in a traffic circle about 100 yards from Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, could be heard by some in the crowd of 84,000, but university President David Boren said no one inside the stadium was ever in danger.

"We are apparently dealing with an individual suicide, which is under full investigation," Boren said in a statement. There was no information about the person who was killed, and no reports of any other injuries.

A police bomb squad detonated explosives found at the site of the blast. The area near the stadium was searched by bomb-sniffing dogs." (source)

Michelle Malkin has now brought attention to the fact that this young Muslim had previously attempted to purchase ammonium nitrate (the primary ingredient used in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing).

This from Mark Tapscott:
"Suicide victims don't normally accumulate a large amount of bomb-making material in their homes. People intent on blowing up other people do.

Second, the proximity to the stadium suggests Hinrichs' target was the crowd, perhaps as people were leaving the game. But being an OU student, he presumably would have access to the student seating section and could have gone from that area to anywhere else in the crowd he chose." (Read his whole story)

This is scary --and would be the worst scenario beginning to unfold, but the government or the media trying to keep it quiet is almost as frightening...
