Boston, MA -- Boston Police Captain, Robert Ciccolo, is a veteran commander stationed at Operations within the Boston Police Headquarters and one of the early responders to the Boston Marathon bombings in April 2013.
Ironically, Ciccolo's son, Alexander Ciccolo, 23, also known as Ali Al Amriki, was just arrested for plotting to use the same type of bomb used by the marathon bombers made out of a pressure cooker.
Monday, the FBI announced that on July 4, Ciccolo was brought into custody after they sold him two pistols and two rifles. After a search of his apartment, the FBI found a pressure cooker, a variety of chemicals, an alarm clock, along with “attack planning papers” and “jihad” paperwork.
“This is a very bad person arrested before he could do very bad things,” one senior federal official briefed on the arrest told ABC News.
According to ABC News,
An FBI affidavit said Ciccolo initially planned to travel to “another state” and use a pressure cooker bomb “to conduct terrorist attacks on civilians, members of the U.S. military and law enforcement personnel.” The FBI said the attack location was later changed to a town with a state university and would be concentrated on “college dorms and cafeteria, to include executions of students, which would be broadcast live via the internet.”

According to the FBI, this deranged lunatic told an informant that the Boston bombings "inspired" him. He allegedly told the FBI operative, “Allahu Akbar!!! I got the pressure cooker today.”
In 2012, Ciccolo was photographed taking a peaceful stance against nuclear energy. What happened between then and now to cause him to want to kill people?
Could it be that Ciccolo was one of the hundreds of useful idiots duped into one of the FBI's terrorism setup plots? Last year a study revealed that nearly 95 percent of terrorist arrests have been the result of FBI foiling its own entrapment plots as a part of the so-called post-9/11 War on Terror.
Nearly 25 percent of cases (99 of 399) contained material support charges. Another almost 30 percent of cases consisted of conspiracy charges. More than 17 percent of the analyzed cases (71 of 399 cases) involved sting operations. Over 16 percent of cases (65 of 399 cases) included false statement or perjury charges, and around six percent of cases involved immigration-related charges.
According to the report, since 9/11 only 11 cases posed “potentially significant” threat to the United States.
Oddly enough, according to the report, two of the only three successful terrorist attacks happened to be the Boston bombers who were said to inspire Ciccolo. “Only three were successful (the [Tamerlan and Dzhokhar] Tsarnaev brothers and Major Nidal Hasan), accounting for 17 deaths and several hundred injuries,” the paper says.
