"They were going to force the country to default. ... We averted a huge shutdown. ... This was the big cahuna of hostage taking."

norway

Anders Behring Breivik, the confessed perpetrator in last month’s bombing of Norway’s government buildings in Oslo and a shooting rampage at a Labor party youth camp that killed 77 people and wounded nearly 100, was motivated by his hatred of Muslim immigrants. In a 1,500-page manifesto published on the Internet just before Breivik launched his terrorist attacks, the mass murder suspect declares that his violent operation of July 22 was planned for two years in order to help halt the “Islamization” of Norway and Europe.  Story continues
