Don't forget, the BBC relies - as do all journalists - heavily on the public.

No they do not. They rely heavily on "government insiders" and "indusrty spokespersons" and other self proclaimed "experts". When the BBC do interview the public, they do so very selectively, because they cannot grantee what the public will say. And when a member of the public does get a contrary word in edgewise, they are quickly dismissed by "insiders", "spokespersons" and "experts".

This criticism seems patently unfair, mainly because the authorities had way more information than the general public had.

Well, perhaps then, armchair detectives should not be pointing fingers at people when the professionals, with far more evidence were not even ready to point a finger at the time? The finger pointing from these wanna-be detectives started right after the bombing and led to numerous people being falsely accused.

I watched on reddit as one particular person pulled the armchair detective stunt and then pointed the finger at the wrong person. And during all this, being a complete jerk to anyone who suggested he was out of line....

What happened on that thread I saw on reddit was a witch hunt...And THAT is a big problem.

I wonder, would you feel the criticism to be unfair if it were YOU that a bunch of armchair detectives pointed the finger at, only to have it picked up by several news sources, forcing you to go out and prove your innocence? Because that is what happened to at least one man on that reddit thread....And I would bet money that he found it very unfair.

I don't see how such armchair detective quackery can realistically be banned....But... I wouldn't mind seeing it discouraged.... Too often does it lead to witch hunts, false accusations and innocent people being put in danger....

We don't need unwarranted speculation and witch hunts.....For THEY are unfair.

Peace, love and truth

I don't know about some of you, but I take that as a personal insult. That just makes me want to prove them wrong even more. It's one thing to lie to us constantly, but then try to make it illegal for us to figure out what's going on because they think we get it wrong all the time. No. They want to make it illegal because we keep getting it right and people are starting to listen... This is a war for hearts and minds, people. Never forget that.

Don't worry. We have "other "excellent" investigators. The Media.

Just ask Piers Morgan. He would have had all the phone calls monitored in the greater Boston area, if they let him.

Hello ATS community.

This is the stuff they don't want us to see. Please share this information with everyone you know.
(Warning, some of these pictures are gruesome at first glance. I assure you though that the blood and gore is all fake, I can prove it simply by informed medical observation.)

I've studied and graduated EMT-B certification with the state of Oregon. I've been on calls with heavy arterial bleeds, internal bleeding, fatalities, doa's. I am speaking from direct personal experience with severe trauma.

Here is a telling photograph of the amputee actor. I encourage readers to view the photo side by side with my analysis.

If you loose both your legs from explosive trauma half your blood is gone in one minute via the femoral arteries, youre dead after two. Bleeding out is worse with blunt force trauma (like shrapnel) because flesh is torn rather than cut, exposing more arterial and vascular tissue. The human body holds 5 to 6 LITERS of blood. If that really happened you would see blood EVERYWHERE, the guy would be drenched in it. You would also see what's called arterial spurtting from the injury. Most likely he would vomit after turning ghost white from shock, then turning delirious or passing out. As for the "tourniquet"...

Its not even tied off, its suspended via gravity, which would literally do nothing to an arterial sever. There's no pressure applied. There's no knott with a turn stick for leverage. You can clearly see a gap in the nonexistent wrap job on his left inner thigh (left anterior proximal for you experts) His hands have no blood on them. There's no blood on the ground. The color in his hands and lips shows good circulation.

This is an actor. This is staged. How did they pull it off though? I can show you.

Here in frame six on the left we see the the man with a hood setting up the fake leg wound prosthetics. His attention and hands are right there. The woman is acting as a shield covering what's happening.
Frame 6

Here in frame eight the prosthetics are in place. Amidst all this chaos seconds after the explosion the hooded man takes the time to put on his sunglasses which is a signal.
Frame 8

Here in frame nine with sunglasses now on the hooded man and the woman make eye contact, signal received.
Frame 9

In frame eleven after recieving the go signal the woman makes an open hand gesture the direction both of them are looking, signaling the staged injuries are in place for cameras. The prone amputee raises his left prosthetic injury into the air over the woman's shoulder. No blood is present. The bone is dry, no blood on his leg above the knee, no blood on the woman, no arterial spurt, nothing.
Frame 11

Here in frame fourteen the woman turns her head right but is still holding up that open palm signal with her left hand. The hooded man again busies himself pouring fake blood on the pavement behind the woman. The amputee has both fake injuries in the air now. There is still no blood on his legs, his skin above the injury is clean and dry.
Frame 14

Frame twenty, the fake blood and prosthetics are in place. The amputee gives an open hand gesture along with the woman to bring the cameras in. We're now twenty frames in and still not a drop of fresh blood from a double leg amputation. His legs are dry, the woman is dry and unscathed. Both are making the same hand gesture.
Frame 20

These are actors. This is staged. It was flash powder. There was no crock pot nail bomb. There are no bombers, only patsy. If your looking for a gunman look at the Army in the streets of Boston. Share this knowledge with everyone.

How about the news getting it wrong?

USA Today Photo.

They say this picture is of the bombers 10-20 minutes before the blast in the photo tag. Problem is the runner with the tag number 18293 in the picture finished the race 9 seconds before the blast.

Posted this in a thread myself, would have made a thread for it but haven't posted enough yet.

I think what they don't say in the article is as much telling as what they do say. No mentions of theories relating to government cover-ups, no mention of the purported Navy Seals that some photos suggest were crawling all over it. All they do is discredit the movement and focus on the cases of regular Joe's getting accused, which admittedly is terrible, but isn't the whole picture.

Correction on this my mistake she finished 9 minutes before the blast not 9 seconds. 4:09 blast 4:00 finish race times not real time.
