It's really weird.
I felt so anxious all morning and tried to dismiss it with a few prayers and preoccupying myself with other things. On rare occasions, after a stressful period, I sometimes worry most when I have nothing to worry about, I just chalked it up to that.
Then this news..

CNN is an American News Company. Why would they report on bombings on the other side of the world? I'm sure Iraqi news agencies are all over it.
So what's bbcs excuse. (SORRY USING MY PHONE)
Both very sad I am just puting this into perspective
9/11 was huge it makes sence that it waa huge news at the time. This is not comparable to 9/11 in terms of its magnitude
Yeah, and if I recall, 9/11 was being reported live by our media, BBC, Alex Jones, and even by Japanese media. If a bombing is huge enough, it is posted around the world... if it occurs in America, anyway.
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines. “They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.” Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him. “There was just smoke, another explosion went off,” Stevenson said. “We all started running. There were people crying.” Stevenson said there was no question in his mind that this was an intentional act.

Taylor said she noticed more of a military presence when the race with 27,000 runners started. "We noticed that they had military upon the buildings watching," Taylor said. "I wonder if they had had some...that was kind of peculiar to me. That's kind of weird to have military people up there with binoculars before a running event at the start.
explains the guys on the roof!!
April 22, 2009 On Monday, the National Guard deployed 400 Massachusetts National Guardsmen from the 126th Combat Support Battalion to keep the Boston Marathon race route clear for more than 26,000 runners, according to the U.S. Army website.

I blame Kim Jong-Un
Was it really a "drill" or did law enforcement have a heads up...a warning...threat...gut feeling and told people it was a drill so as not to scare them?
