U.S. officials have finally confirmed the obvious – the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing were motivated to kill innocent people because of their affiliation to the Tea Party no their staunch support of the Second Amendment  no their racist roots no their white skin no Hitler’s birthday their adherence to radical elements of the Islamic faith.

It’s every liberal media members worst case scenario, and it absolutely had to make the Associated Press gag as they were typing out the words in their report.

Via the AP:

The two brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon appear to have been motivated by their religious faith but do not seem connected to any Muslim terrorist groups, U.S. officials said Monday after interrogating the severely wounded younger man. He was charged with federal crimes that could bring the death penalty.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was charged in his hospital room with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill. He was accused of joining with his older brother, Tamerlan – now dead – in setting off the pressure-cooker bombs that killed three people and wounded more than 200 a week ago.

The brothers, ethnic Chechens from Russia who had been living in the U.S. for about a decade, practiced Islam.

… two officials said the preliminary evidence from an interrogation suggests the Tsarnaev brothers were driven by religion but had no ties to Islamic terrorist organizations.

It had to hurt to admit that AP.  Baby steps towards reality…

And in another hell freezes over moment, I’m going to quote Bill Maher who recently told one of his guests that equating violence perpetrated by other religious groups to that of radical Islam is “liberal bulls***”.

… there’s only one faith, for example, that kills you or wants to kill you if you draw a bad cartoon of the prophet. There’s only one faith that kills you or wants to kill you if you renounce the faith. An ex-Muslim is a very dangerous thing. Talk to Salman Rushdie after the show about Christian versus Islam. So you know, I’m just saying let’s keep it real.”

The media was really hoping things were different this time though.  You think they’ll apologize for speculating about every scenario under the sun except radical Islam?
