Race day got started with 26 seconds of silence in honor of the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. A little more than 2 hours later, the lead runners will go past the Mile 26 marker, which has been decorated with the Newtown, Conn., seal and dedicated to the memory of those killed there.

I was wondering if the explosions were near mile marker 26...

If it was bombs, where are the police and the bomb sniffing dogs, does Boston use those?

Exactly, Why then do we need homeland security? What are they securing if things like this happen?

I live just outside of Boston and I just heard a news reporter ask a witness if this was a terrorist attack. Seriously? Bombs planted near the Boston Marathon would BY DEFINITION be terrorist in nature.


EDIT**** 2 more devices have been found and are being defused.

The local news says that the U.S. army and the head of Fema are on site. Boy they guys move fast.

In less than an hour the Army and the head of Fema is there?

If I find out they were conducting drills, then all bets are off.

If they pin this on North Korea, I wouldn't be surprised.


Its the National Guard and they were their for to support the marathon just like every year. And if the head of Fema is their it is a quick flight from DC to Boston.

it is believed to have just been a suspicious package and they decided best thing to do was a controlled explosion.

My friend tweeted just before the explosion that he had finished and got a personal record. None of us have heard from him since.



He's probably ok then because the two bombs got areas where runners had not finished yet, so if he was finished then he's past the danger zone.

Incidentally, the marathon tracker website still works, so you can see when he finished.

No, they are too busy feeling up law abiding grandmas and children.

AP Breaking news alert on my phone: 2 more explosive devices found and being dismantled.

So 2 they are dismantling, 1 that was exploded with the water gun, and 2 that exploded within 15 seconds of each other.

So bomb dogs missed 5 bombs??? Or did people bring them in after the sniff?

All the blood on that one photo, horrific. And on Tax day, and on a day where oil, gold and precious commodities crashed.

And maybe unrelated, but since I got the alerts at exactly the same time.

FBI at Pilot

My bet is it is going to be homegrown.

Just a gut feeling.

More laws and more security coming soon.

What a horrible thing to have happen at such an event. I never would have thought the Boston marathon would've been considered a soft target. My deepest sympathies to all those who are there and to those who have lost loved ones because of this horrific event-My condolences......I find the timing of this most suspect....today is the day North Korea celebrates the anniversary of it's creation or they are celebrating the dear leaders Grandfather Kim IL-Sun.....Like I said....I find the timing of this very suspect.....
