CNN: "Pressure Cooker Bombs Signature Of Right-Wing Extremists"

The idiots at CNN then go on to equate pressure cooker bombs with pipe bombs to make their point:

Such a formula is certainly not unique to AQAP. Variations appear all over the Internet. A senior U.S. counterterrorism investigator told CNN that pressure cooker bombs have also been a signature of extreme right-wing individuals in the United States who he said tend to revel in building homemade bombs.

For example, the devices planted by Erich Rudolph at an Atlanta park during the 1996 Olympic Games were pipe bombs filled with gunpowder and nails to increase their lethality; it also had an alarm clock as a timing mechanism. Like the bombings in Boston, those devices were concealed in a backpack, according to a Department of Homeland Security report detailing the 1996 attack.

Without exposing themselves to accusations of "racism" or "Islamophobia," CNN carefully treads around "lone wolf" incidents involving similar bombing components, such as backpacks and timers. Apparently, all these things prove right-wings extremists may be behind the bombing, despite the many coincidental Islamists using "Inspire" recipes.
