It appears the mainstream media has ignored a potentially important story that took place this weekend.
The FBI is continuing its investigation of the death of OU mechanical engineering junior Joel Henry Hinrichs III, who died in an explosion about 100 yards away from a packed Oklahoma Memorial Stadium Saturday night.
NewsBusters says we aren’t getting the full story from former Democrat Senator, now OU Prez David Boren.
University of Oklahoma President David Boren seems determined to have everybody believe Joel Henry Hinrichs III was merely a disturbed young man who decided to commit suicide by blowing himself up within 100 yards of a stadium containing 84,000 screaming fans of Sooner football.
Sorry, I don’t buy it, at least not yet. Here’s why: First, The Daily Oklahoman is reporting authorities found a large cache of bomb-making materials in Hinrichs’ apartment. The cache is so big that the Oklahoman quoted one of the officials on the scene as estimating a full 24 hours would be required to cart away all of the material.
Suicide victims don’t normally accumulate a large amount of bomb-making material in their homes. People intent on blowing up other people do.
Even if there is no terror-related reason for this incident, why is our “mainstream” media ignoring this event in the context of our War on Terror?
