Package bomb possibly targeted Texas oil executive, woman injured

EXCERPT:

HOUSTON--Disguised as a package of chocolates and left on the doorstep of a Texas oil executive, the bomb went off when a woman opened the apparent gift.

In spite of BP's shares rising over the weekend due to apparent increased confidence in the company's attempt to recap the Deepwater Horizon, it appears that an oil industry executive might have been targeted for murder after someone left a "package bomb" at the home of a Houston oil executive last week.

An unnamed woman, described by neighbours as kind-hearted, is in serious condition after undergoing surgery for the injuries from shrapnel contained in the bomb reported KSLA News 12. ABC Local (Eyewitness News) got the scoop on the story, confirming the home belongs to an unnamed Texas oil executive.

So was this a BP exec?
The story never says who the intended victim works for.

We'll see how long it takes before they blame it on a Tea Partier.

The blame on a tea partier will be instantaneous. When it turns out to be an enviro-whacko, it will take the media years to admit it.

They've yet to say they were wrong in the Holocaust Memorial shooting.

These deranged cowards always injure or kill innocent bystanders. Always. Not that it's ever okay to kill someone over a career choice.

Luckily, we always have room in the Super Max facility out here. :mad:

Exactly.

Unless you consider terrorism a career choice? :D
