Number one.. I wish people would realize that Craft International is not a mercenary group. Chris Kyle and other former vets created Craft International as a sort of Academy or training school for law enforcement, military, and people seeking to be hired by contractors. The guys pictured are FAR MORE likely to be a part of a specially trained security/terrorist unit employed by the state or federal government. They may have gone through training at Craft facilities but that's where it ends. It is equally as likely that they could have been supplied or simply bought gear with the Craft International logo. It can be purchased right off of the website:
About The Craft
The presence of anti-terrorist and military operatives are common place at major events like this. There were military snipers and similar anti-terrorism and security units at the Super Bowl the past few years. The Boston Marathon is a worldwide event and it is considered a NATIONAL SECURITY EVENT. Therefore, it shouldn't surprise you that we'd have units like this on scene.
With all that said, it still begs the question of whether or not the FBI or DHS knew there was an impending or possible attack. They definitely knew the elder Tsarnaev was a threat at one point, but did they know the bombings would occur?
Several of the things pointed out have already been explained.. The "detonator" is a Geiger counter.. Used to detect if any radiation was present. This would be a common tool in any anti-terrorism outfit.

I didn't know this was a repost, my bad for not looking. It is still pretty sketchy though.
If they were only there to over see security then fair enough but the fact that there is a TON of evidence against them is appalling to me.
