ACT van bomb
The Australian Christian Lobby is at odds with police over a car- bomb that has shaken the advocacy group and damaged its Canberra headquarters, declaring that claims the blast was not politically, religiously or ideologically motivated do not add up.
I thought the Police were a bit quick to say that the fact the van exploded outside the ACL offices was simply a coincidence.
Surrounded by shattered glass, ash and burnt rubber, ACL managing director Lyle Shelton described the scene as a bomb site and said the “deliberate” targeting of his organisation came on the back of death and violence threats by anonymous callers and “well-known gay activists”.
Time will tell of course but I wonder whether the police have been a bit quick to make that assessment based on the words of a man who had just undergone a traumatic explosion and could be seen as confused and not necessarily a reliable witness.
If so, why. What is the police agenda?
Doubt he’s a suicide bomber. See the open mesh grille – that’s intended to protect him from fire, a blast or man made van warming. A Green for sure.
