I would simply say it is entirely plausable that the Obama admin wants a pretext for cracking down on anti-government sentiment – concocting a mucked up attack that they can quickly link to white, Christian, anti-governmental, new world order, conspiracy believing, white, right wingers will give them the necessary public outrage to compromise a few more liberties in the name of “the collective good”.


Or we could actually have a problem on our hands. These kind of things would have a very, very small group of people involved with extremely radical ideologies. Whereas most of us would not be capable of doing such a thing, there are unfortunately people that are. Timothy McVeigh had two associates involved and both, if I recall correctly, backed out of the actual Oklahoma City bombing. Ted Kaczinsky worked alone. Both of them would be perfect prior examples of what domestic terrorism can look like. The problem is that people are unhappy with the government right now and when you have 86% of the population being kind of unhappy with Congress, it raises the probability that someone( or a small group) may do something patently atrocious with a politically motivated intent. Statistically speaking, it should be expected.

That said, I am concerned as to how our government responds to this if it should turn out to be a domestic terrorist cell. I think, however, they are more likely going to be extremely cautious in not doing the equivalent of pouring gas all over the US (ie declaring martial law). As far as watching for domestic terrorist groups, they've been doing that for a while now. Means that whoever did this kept it small and kept the conversation off the airwaves. For this kind of thing, there isn't a whole lot they can do because these would be the very type of individuals that would comprehend the risks of using technology to converse on a regular basis.

Explosives can be directional both intended or poor quality. It does not necessarily mean it has resitance from above. A bad constructed pipe bomb will explode to the sides. If you look at the vids of the first explosion you see the first wave come trough the fences just before you see it above the crowd. It can easily be a bag on the ground.

If you look at the injuries maybe the people were lucky it was not place on a table on torso level

This picture seems to show the blast starting further back. look at the black spot in the corner and the direction of the debris around it.

Someone just flat out asked if this was another false flag event intended to revoke our civil liberties.

Kinda strange for him to just come right out and ask on national TV.

Interesting. It was definitely a very small bomb and seemed to blow upward rather than outward. I'm thinking trashcan.

In a live interview with authorities on CNN, a guy in the crowd actually asked if this was a false attack to give us a reason to attack Saudi Arabia - at least I'm pretty sure that is what he asked.

The authority just looked aggravated and said "No. Next question."

(And no, I don't think this is a false flag attack. Just seemed like a bold question.)

ETA: Sorry did not see it already posted like 5 times while I was typing

Sorry for that, didn't mean to come off as a jerk to you, just I'm a little annoyed after seeing it on my news feed for FB by so many people already so I got a little jumpy. But I know when things cool down, that picture is going to be one of the key "evidence" that it was a false flag for people and those people who strongly believe it is a false flag won't listen to the simplest of explanations.

Patriot's day is the third Monday in April. It's a floater.


There it is! I made the mistake in what I heard. Apologies all around. Thank you Tao.


The day that the shot was heard 'round the world was April 19th 1775.


Yep and Patriot's day is every 3rd Monday for Boston's celebration. I don't think we'll see any group claiming responsibility personally because of the date and selected locations. It's also why I don't think there will be any group claiming this one because thought was obviously put into the date selection and locations.

Did anyone just hear the guy screaming about a false flag at the end of the press conference just now? Or did I imagine that?

Also remember, there were two detonations. Could be the secondary...?
