Norway’s Timothy McVeigh

Huffington Post reports:

The 32-year-old Norwegian man who went on a shooting spree on the island of Utoya has been identified as Anders Behring Breivik, according to multiple reports.

The Daily Mail and Sky News were among those to report the suspect’s name. According to witnesses, the gunman was dressed as a police officer and gunned down young people as they ran for their lives at a youth camp.

Police said Friday evening that they’ve linked the youth camp shooting and Oslo bombing. Breivik is believed to have acted alone.

Norwegian TV2 reports that Breivik belongs to “ring-wing circles” in Oslo. Swedish news site Expressen adds that he has been known to write to right-wing forums in Norway, is a self-described nationalist and has also written a number of posts critical of Islam.

The New York Times now reports that in the bombing and shootings is at least 87 people were killed.

    Norway with active forces in NATO is like the U.S. a country at war bombing,
    terrorizing, killing thousands of innocent civilians. For what?? Certainly not peace.
    It’s all part of the plan right now to control the Middle East and its many resources.
    Is the Israeli Mossad involved warning against a legitimate Palestinian state?
    Why not. It’s gotten to be a stinky rotten game of world-wide coverup. We’re
    getting used to the smell of the true villains.
