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!!
Interesting.....there is NO valid reason for military to be there like that, or the National Guard to be talked about as a fast responder.....

Not sure if anyone has seen this video yet, it is raw footage, just before the explosion. I haven't finished analysing it but I'll post it to see if someone might catch something I would miss

I find it ridiculous that people are saying that the military being present there is a huge red flag. The military gets invited to things like this all of the time. Most of those soldiers probably had fellow soldiers or family members running.
Update 83 : A user just messaged me this: For what its worth a family member of mine (who works at MGH) believes the death toll is going to go up. She/he believes there are 8 dead in the ER at MGH.

Wouldn't that indicate that the blast had resistance above it to push the blast pattern down? If this is the case, then the explosive must have been low in the can, covered in trash.
What kiond of garbage can container was it? Have you seen those kind that have "aggregate cement sides"?
If this is the case, then it would stand to reason that it was placed earlier than any of the videos we have seen so far. Does this make sense or do I just not understand explosives?
Like a timed delay. Maybe. Apparently there were two more disarmed and recovered. Pics... anybody? He might have set all four earlier and then walked around arming them... but blew himself up on the second one???
