Nothing new here. The MSM is the biggest batch of corporate jokers going on today falling all over themselves to be the first with no regard to official confirmation. Once again they reveal their true agenda. If your in the need for a good laugh, tune in. If your seeking journalistic integrity, look somewhere else because you won’t find it in the MSM.

I have little doubt there was a suspect, and an arrest, but when the suspect starting naming names of very high up politicians and wealthy people and how they helped, the authorities ended up helping the bomber get out of the country. Now they will find some poor sucker to pin it on.
Remember, Bin Laden’s family flew out after 9-11 on a private jet.
Just like McVeigh. Multiple witnesses and videos prove there were others involved in the Oklahoma bombing but at the end, they only charged McVeigh and tried to drag in innocent people but were unsuccesful.
Of course the bomber could be North Korean (since the bombing happened on April 15th which is the biggest holiday in North Korea) and we all know how the US and world wets its pants and crawls like a worm when Kim Jung Un threatens nuclear attacks.
