Seizing on a thinly sourced New York Post report that police have ID'd a Saudi national as a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings this afternoon, Islamophohbic blogger and activist Pamela Geller is ready to lay the blame. In her take, the alleged suspect becomes a "Jihadi" and there isn't any doubt in Geller's mind that he did it. She wrote on her blog Atlas Shrugs under the headline, "Jihadi Arrested in Horrific Boston Marathon Bombing":

Jihad in America. 12 dead, 50 injured. My deepest condolences to their loved ones. Monstrous.

On Twitter, she elaborated on her certainty about the attack and shamed those who dare doubt her. "Blood on your hands," she tweeted at Eli Clifton of the American Independent News Network, who responded to her tweet. "Shame on you, carrying water for murderers," she said to a human rights law student. "Another spokesman for killers," she responded to another. "'Holy war' means dead people," she added. "Savages," she said to another, by way of explanation.

While she blames Muslims, others blame the government. Most are waiting for answers.
