Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well you wouldn't expect any information to be leaking on the investigation. There's reports that he was running an organic vegetable farm, and had had recently received six tons of fertiliser, so it's reasonable to think that he could do this on his own, but its just as reasonable to think that he should have had help.

I don't know what kind of certified organic fertiliser can be used as an explosive.

I do know what kind of chemical fertiliser can be used as an explosive, on the other hand.

You picked up on that little inconsistency

any excuse to sling more shit at the organic farming persuasion, so a la mode right now...

I'm sure by now he did ran some kind of vegetable farm - the documentation fits.

Breivik apparently had a license for several weapons - I see reports he owned a Glock pistol, an automatic weapon and a rifle/shotgun.

There are witness accounts of a second shooter on the island. Will have to see how credible these reports are.

The details from the stories of the survivors are horrifying. Breivik deliberately used his guise as a policeman to draw out people from their hiding places, calling out to them it was safe. The moment people approached him, he shot them. He targeted pretty girls first.

Yes, I've seen reports about the vegetable farm, and the suggestion it allowed him to get fertiliser to use as explosive. But I doubt it was an organic farm, because I don't see what fertiliser he'd have used. In non-organic farming, otoh, there's an obvious candidate.

I also heard (radio) he had permits for a Glock and at least one other firearm.

There is a strong hunting culture in Norway after all...
