      Too early to do anything but speculate wildly.
      It's still not clear what happened. But the warning given, suggests this wasn't a terrorist act, and the bomber didn't want to cause casualties. This could also be a monetary issue with AT&T not clearing his bills (being the pandemic people losing jobs and all) and the dude getting fed up and wanting to screw AT&T.

        Nashville bomber to neighbor: The world is 'never going to forget me'
        Anthony Quinn Warner is believed to have detonated the bomb that killed him in downtown Nashville on Friday.

        NASHVILLE, Tenn. — It seemed like a friendly chat between neighbors. Only after a bomb exploded in downtown Nashville on Christmas morning could Rick Laude grasp the sinister meaning behind his neighbor’s smiling remark that the city and the rest of the world would never forget him.

        Laude told The Associated Press on Monday that he was speechless when he learned that authorities identified his 63-year-old neighbor, Anthony Quinn Warner, as the man suspected of detonating a bomb that killed himself, injured three other people and damaged dozens of buildings.

        Laude said he saw Warner standing at his mailbox less than a week before Christmas and pulled over in his car to talk. After asking how Warner’s elderly mother was doing, Laude said he casually asked, “Is Santa going to bring you anything good for Christmas?” Warner smiled and said, “Oh, yeah, Nashville and the world is never going to forget me,” Laude recalled.

        Laude said he didn’t think much of the remark and thought Warner only meant that “something good” was going to happen for him financially.

        “Nothing about this guy raised any red flags,” Laude said. “He was just quiet.”

        Laude said Warner sometimes did not respond when he and other neighbors waved to him, but said he did not take it personally. “I knew that he was just a recluse,” he said.

        Warner left behind clues that suggest he planned the bombing and intended to kill himself, but a clear motive remains elusive.

        “We hope to get an answer. Sometimes, it’s just not possible,” David Rausch, the director of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, said Monday in an interview on NBC’s “Today” show. “The best way to find motive is to talk to the individual. We will not be able to do that in this case.”

        Investigators are analyzing Warner’s belongings collected during the investigation, including a computer and a portable storage drive, and continue to interview witnesses as they try to identify a motive for the explosion, a law enforcement official said. A review of his financial transactions also uncovered purchases of potential bomb-making components, the official said.

        Warner had recently given away a vehicle and told the person he gave it to that he had been diagnosed with cancer, though it is unclear whether he indeed had cancer, the official said. Investigators used some items collected from the vehicle, including a hat and gloves, to match Warner’s DNA and DNA was taken from one of his family members, the official said.

        The official could not discuss the matter publicly and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

        Warner also apparently gave away his home in Antioch, a Nashville suburb, to a Los Angeles woman a month before the bombing. A property record dated Nov. 25 indicates Warner transferred the home to the woman in exchange for no money after living there for decades. The woman’s signature is not on that document.

        Warner had worked as a computer consultant for Nashville real estate agent Steve Fridrich, who told the AP in a text message that Warner had said he was retiring earlier this month.

        Officials said Warner had not been on their radar before Christmas. A law enforcement report released Monday showed that Warner’s only arrest was for a 1978 marijuana-related charge.

        “It does appear that the intent was more destruction than death, but again that’s all still speculation at this point as we continue in our investigation with all our partners,” Rausch added.

        Furthermore, officials have not provided insight into why Warner selected the particular location for the bombing, which damaged an AT&T building and wreaked havoc on cellphone service and police and hospital communications in several Southern states. By Monday, the company said the majority of services had been restored for residents and businesses.

        Forensic analysts were reviewing evidence from the blast site to try to identify the components of the explosives as well as information from the U.S. Bomb Data Center for intelligence and investigative leads, according to a law enforcement official who said investigators were examining Warner’s digital footprint and financial history.

        The official, who was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity, said federal agents were examining a number of potential leads and pursuing several theories, including the possibility that the AT&T building was targeted.

        Doug Korneski, the special agent in charge of the FBI’s Memphis field office, said Sunday that officials were looking at any and all motives and were interviewing acquaintances of Warner’s to try to determine what may have motivated him.

        The bombing took place early on a holiday morning well before downtown streets were bustling with activity. Police were responding to a report of shots fired when they encountered the RV blaring a recorded warning that a bomb would detonate in 15 minutes. Then, for reasons that may never be known, the audio switched to a recording of Petula Clark’s 1964 hit “Downtown” shortly before the blast.

        In addition to the DNA found at the blast site, investigators from the Tennessee Highway Patrol were able to link the vehicle identification number recovered from the wreckage to an RV registered to Warner, officials said.

        “We’re still following leads, but right now there is no indication that any other persons were involved,” Korneski said. “We’ve reviewed hours of security video surrounding the recreation vehicle. We saw no other people involved.”

        President-elect Joe Biden on Monday called the bombing “a reminder of the destructive power an individual or a small group can muster and the need for continued vigilance across the board.”

        President Donald Trump hasn’t publicly commented on the explosion but has spoken to Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and offered resources and support, according to the governor’s office.

          The man enounced it after long pause, as if he was reading from somewhere: youtu.be/GMIqANqehgM. But FBI is yet a Trump (GOP) run administration, isn't it

            Stop. OK? Just stop. If you want to promote conspiracy theories, there are plenty of other websites where you can do that.

                You either think I'm an idiot or you don't have a clue that the things you've been posting absolutely reek of conspiracy theories. Which is it?

                  I provide to see the facts as You paste journalists' materials and propose non-science principles. When the motive for the blast is so obviously clear from the beginning, however, I do also understand why so many people pretend to not see the elephant in the room

                    You mean conspiracy theories. This is your last warning. Don't post that crap on this board.

                      This seems to be the possibility now. A very poor way to go.

                          Recommend you go and review the rules for participation on the WAB.

                          You have been warned about posting conspiracy theories and flamebaiting by TopHatter, the site Administrator.

                          Posting YouTube links is not proof of anything. YouTube is rife with self-posted conspiracy videos of which these follow well within that realm.


                          Per the by rules the Administrator and we Moderators have every right to keep discussions with the rules.

                          If you think that you can not get a fair hearing here the internet is packed with sites which might be more to your liking.

                            You should first get to know with the testimonies before comparing them with whatever else one can find in the web

                              Let me get this straight. It was not a lone bomber bent on suicide but a government plot and the only evidence that you have is a few words from Biden and an interview by the bomber's neighbour that sounded too rehersed. Am I reading this correct?

                              Never mind the fact I could do the same damage to AT&T with nothing more than a generator and fried the lines without damaging the buildings. And blame it on an electrical overload. You would think a giovernment entity would have the resources to do something neat without having to deal with messy bombs.
