I was flipping through the controlled news medias and on CNN there was a politician talking about which extremist group could be responsible and the only "groups" he mentioned were the Islamists and right-wing extremists.


There were some people from my home state there and hope everyone is OK. Why does this keep happening? Why can't we all just leave each other the hell alone and live in peace?

Axelrod: Obama Thinks Boston Bombings Could Be Related to 'Tax Day'



In explaining why President Obama didn't call the Boston bombings a "terrorist attack," former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day":


www.weeklystandard.com...

Well here we go!!! I would frankly love to punch Mr. Axelrod so hard his nose came out his behind. People like this do not deserve to live in the U.S.A. You know dam well he is repeating Obama's words or he would be in big trouble with Obama.

If any U.S. Militia was going to attack anything it would be the UN or the Obama administration. Let alone those paid actors in the stands from the Newtown staged event. Them being there just adds more weight to a staged event. This time it happened but since someone knew the Boston P.D. had planned an exercise right there then this has DHS written all over it.

Here's the lesson I always end up learning from events like this, and draw upon this from own personal experiences

We need to start treating everyone better in this world and start spreading the message of compassion period. With this there are no exceptions.

So the choices seem to be...

A) Terrorist - Foriegn

B) Terrorist - Domestic

C) Lone Wolf


Terrorist - Foriegn

In support of this theorey is some of the talk of the devices being similair to IEDs found in Afghanistan.

The fact that it was a non political event, not a government building etc. but an attack on the public at large.

Multiple bombs placed at a non-political or government sponsored event...aimed at inciting terror.

Al-Qaida or affiliated groups.

Terrorist - Domestic

It was Tax Day

Boston is associated with the "Boston Tea Party", the start of the American revolution etc.

It was "Patriots Day"

Eric Rudolph bombed a sporting event, the US Summer Olympics ...Centennial Olympic Park bombing...in 1996 to protest abortions.

Lone Wolf

There is always crazy in the world and this could have been a lone individual with a nonsensical motive ranging from some percieved slight by society at large to simple sociapathic desire for attention.

..........

On the evidence front...EVERYONE has camera's at these events and there are security camera's.

In theorey they should be able to collect enough photographic evidence and video surrounding the timeline to finger at least a couple of potential suspects.

I also have to imagine that someone carrying a bag or backpack full of ball-bearings is going to carry the load differently then a lighter bag. A careful eye should be able to sort it out in pics and video given the timeline...comparing pics of when no bag was present to when a bag was present...find a pic or video of someone with that same bag in color and weight earlier given the time-map etc.

They could also pull local cell tower records and limit it to folks that made a call at the precise moment of detonation? Assuming that the suspect did it locally? Same guy leaves bags and has to stick around long enough to make sure everything goes off as planned, plus wants to see impact.

It is also possible that the suspect...if needy for attention...or for perverse satisfaction purposes...took pictures or video at the moment of detonation. I would look carefully at any footage that seemed to be well timed and focused on the point of impact rather than any runners? If he/she was working for a larger group of terrorists he'd want to share the video or pics via the net as soon as possible, but also wouldn't share with the media or FBI? I don't know...that might be a stretch of an angle.

Interested in what I missed and others thoughts.

the other point to consider is in the wording. how many amputees did YOU,personally, perform. each doc will give HIS own #. also a blown off foot,leg,arm does not have to b amutated,it already was. by 6pm we will get different #'s. mayb even a day or 2.


That's not the question that was asked, to my recollection. He wasn't asked how many amputations he performed, but how many were performed. The answer was 4 amutations to 4 different people. The doctor stated "we simply finished what the bomb started", not "I".

Of those affected, 17 are considered "critical". If someone had just lost a limb they would be "critical". So the number of 25-30 with lost limbs just doesn't add up.

Interesting article in regards to the now non-existent other bombs. According to the article, Tim Katz from Time is very unhappy as he was reporting information directly from the police scanner, itself. Pretty darn sure that I saw a twitter shot of BPD tweeting that they had done a controlled explosion and weren't they reporting last night that the undetonated bombs were going to be supplying them with possible important information in regards to the perpetrator? The latter part, however, was coming from reporters, I believe, from CBS or CNN live (watched both yesterday). Wasn't twitter or a forum. Was on live news. Very wonky.

is there any way to make a locked thread that contains all the known info? keeping people from reposting the same stuff over and over again would be great, also a way to stay updated without having to read a uhndred pages. i can help if it's allowed

Plus, training gone wrong. Live munitions have been accidentally used in training scenarios many times before.

Please forgive me in advance but understand for reasons of my own I can’t read through all these posts. I just can’t. I’ve had my FILL of all this hate and carnage.

That being said - I stumbled over some news stating the Boston globe ‘tweeted’ there was a bomb exercise going on in Boston the same day as the Marathon bombing.

Does anyone know if there’s any truth to that info or is it just more chatter boxing BS?

Thanks so much for your patience.

peace

Namaste, brudda.

That's what I'm thinking as well, probably just someone viewing the festivities. But the ATS side of me wants it to be something more complicated

No because if it was a cell detonation they would have used burner phones that can't be traced

This isn't unusual....The bad reporting occured and often does occur in these events...cuz the news is rushing to break news about the event. Thier anchors are there on air mumbling and repeating themselves for hours desperate for new information...add in that police "detonated" several suspicous packages...otherwise they use small contained explosions on packages that they think might be explosives...and no one knows until afterwards whether it was actually a bomb or not...So when a cop reports that they found package A and are going to detonate it etc. it confuses a naive and desperate media. No conspiracy there, it has happened before in these events.

Yah, spread the love. Meanwhile the Domestic War on Terror just got a jumpstart. Police presence will multiply. Checkpoints will become permanent, drones will fill the skies. We are looking for terror and everyone is a suspect unless proven innocent.

In two locations, identical explosions 15 seconds apart, 100 meters apart? Exceedingly unlikely.

Absent being able to identify the caller, could they triangalate after the fact to get a general location from where the detonation call originated? If it was a disposable phone that might actually narrow the returns. Cross reference pics and or security video from that area at the given time? Look for individuals that would match people seen at the impact scene around when they think the bags were dropped?

It actually sounds more like a gasline. im not saying it is or isnt but just going by that yeah , gasline fits very well and a lot better then what you suggest. Its your brain steering you into a different direction.


Gasline Huh ? My brain never would have steered me there for sure. Where was yours , in the trunk ?

The man is in front of two canvas folding chairs like the ones we take camping. IMO, he likely was just up on his roof and chilling with a friend, watching the marathon, when it happened.. Then the bomb goes off and this image shows him going back down to his apartment.

If you scan through from pages 61 to 85 there are some clearer blown up pictures of the guy . Sorry mate, I can't remember the exact page number .

My feeling about this event is that this was the work of an unsophisticated, possibly domestic group or even an individual.

My reason to highly doubt false flag is the huge time delay in attributing the attack when compared to, say, 9/11 when they "found a passport" within hours and had names of all of those responsible soon after.

You will see that they will not name any "commission" to handle this investigation, unlike 9/11, JFK etc. Because this investigation will be conducted, as it should, by law enforcement not by a bunch of specially designated people (another clue of false flag IMO).

If it was a false flag attack, any planting of misdirecting evidence would have been very effective in guiding the investigation and we would have already have our scapegoat. That, as of yet, hasn't happened.

The angle of tax protest of some sort is plausible.

As far as the nature of injuries and damage, I think it all points to the lack of sophistication/experience of those responsible: The bombs might have been intended to detonate much earlier (at the time of maximum casualties) and yet it was later, perhaps a sign of hesitation or delay in dropping the devices (again, lousy work).

I think that evidence does not suggest suicide attack, because we would have had a suspect right away if that was the case (similar to false flag).

Genuine investigations are slow. This appears to be one of those IMHO.
