A "rushed" transcript can be found here (starts about half way down the page).

As most ATSers know, there are plenty of inconsistencies (two of the sources have already been deleted) with regards to the Boston bombings.

This write-up talks about the damaged pressure cooker.

And in this article, the author calls into question the shooting of officer Collier (there are a ton of comments so the page may load slowly).

Non-establishment sites like ATS routinely question these events but when a mainstream/establishment news outlet begins to do it, we tend to think that the lie is getting too big to conceal.

This type of reporting takes integrity and well, courage. For many, it would just be easier to "go with the flow".

They could be exposing a cover-up or worse yet, a false flag event. In some cases, this could put a person's well being at risk.

In this case it would seem that Susan Zalkind and Ashleigh Banfield were confronted with too many inconsistencies and rather than ignore them, they chose to keep digging.

just part of the new image change that the Communist News Network is trying out, to boost their ratings. Fox has put a hurting on them and others.
first they start producing,PBS type documentaries and special reports, then they boot Piers Morgan, even though he says he decided to quit. yea after they told him to hit the road. now if they would just get rid of anderson cooper they might turn out to have a pretty good network.

I believe the article points towards the Boston bombing might not have happened, if the suspects had been caught previously when they were associated with the murders in 2011. It doesn't state that the bombings never happened.

I LOVE your optimistic attitude. but the day CNN becomes REAL journalism again is when 'THEIR' party is out of office...

Sorry, which article are you referring to?

With regards to the Boston bombings "never having occurred", its actually a quote by Ashleigh Banfield.

Must be a slow news cycle, so all MSM must have received the same list of talking points. Rachel Maddow of MSNBC has also brought up the Boston bombings, except she says that the bombings could have been the result of not liking the running culture. She talks out of her arse.

"But in "the immediate sense," the explosions were an attack on marathoners and their culture.

Maddow described marathoners as "the endurers, the whip-thin, test-of-limits, addictive contenders doing something that is not much like anything else in our American culture." Marathoners, she said, seek "gratification that is so delayed, [that] it's a form of gratification that most of us hae a hard time believing can conceivably be gratifying.""

The CNN news article you posted.

The news anchor's terminology isn't misleading; she isn't saying the bombing didn't happen, she's saying it might not have happened if Tsarnaev had been prosecuted for the triple murder in 2011.

It wouldn't have happened. Without support. At some high level. An inkling from cnn.
LIHOP.

? How did they know to attack a venue training against the exact same thing they were going to do? At the very least, they terrorized something for the future. Not very good terrorists, though.

I see what youre saying but I think thats more because its CNN, an establishment news operation.

I dont think they can come right out and say how they feel so it has to be presented in a certain way.

The impression I got was that there was an event, the "Boston bombings", littered with establishment inconsistencies (at best) and lies (at worst).

Yes because of the authority's incompetence not because it didn't happen or was staged.

glad to be here...did you even watch that clip you posted???"? did you read the transcript from the link you posted?????? below is a small part

ASHLEIGH BANFIELD, CNN ANCHOR: It is perhaps the biggest what-if in Boston's history. Could the marathon bombing have been prevented if only police had connected the dots in a mysterious triple murder a year-and-a-half earlier? We're going to talk with a reporter whose pieced together some very disturbing details.

title of thread is TOTALLY misleading

What if scenarios is the only thing they can comment on because they have no clue of any actual fact, don't you feel a bit sorry for them????

I agree that its being presented as though the whole thing could have been prevented but it seems to me that they are insinuating that theres more to it.

The title is part of a much longer quote. If its simply a piece on how the bombings could have been prevented had the brothers been apprehended earlier, its not really worthy of ATS.

At-least not in the conspiratorial section.

Maybe if I edit the thread title, it will be less misleading.

Or that theres some kind of cover up:


BANFIELD: They said that they would -- because there's all sorts of -- there's all these different versions of what happened to Todashev.

He's sitting at a table. They say he rushed the officers with either a knife, and then in another account it's a pipe. He has a shotgun -- or rather, a gunshot to the head, to the top of the head.

ZALKIND: Yeah, and I've actually been in this room. I've been in this room. In this -- it's a small condo with Ibragim Todashev's girlfriend before she was deported, by all accounts, for speaking to me.

At-least thats how I was interpreting the undertones of the piece.

Hmm. Look for this young lady to be promptly killed in some sort of "accident", or found dead of "suicide", or suddenly have child porn discovered on her computer. She's not supposed to be connecting those dots. Real investigative journalism is a good way to get yourself silenced.

There was a major red flag I noticed during a CNN report broadcast in late-April regarding the carjacking "victim" and I posted about it in another thread and I'm going to quote highly from something I posted in another thread on 17 May 2013:

Back in mid-May I hadn't become tied to a theory of what actually happened on 15 April, and for full disclosure I still have more questions than answers; but the evening of 18 April and events of 19 April opened my eyes to the fact that something was amiss...like when you go to bed at 3am on 19 April and wake up 3 hours later to learn everything you knew and viewed when passed out kinda, sorta didn't happen.

However it was on 26 April that I picked up on something that has yet to be appropriately or satisfactorily explained; here is what I wrote on 17 May:

CNN's Brian Todd covered the carjacking at the top of the 2pm hour on 26 April 2013. The story comes from Northeastern University criminology Professor James Fox who met with "Danny" (who CNN notes is not his real name, it is his nickname) who refuses to go on camera or give his real name. (* NOTE: Although a few days later "Danny" DID go on camera with his face obstructed and his voice altered for his first and only real interview about the alleged carjacking. Guess which reporter landed this interview with "Danny"? Yep, you guessed it; CBS News' John Miller whose history I detailed in my previous post).

Here is a direct quote from CNN's Brian Todd: "He's relayed everything through this professor, James Fox and they've told this to the Boston Globe and they also told it to us." Todd continues to give the overview of the carjacking and before going to footage of his on camera interview with professor James Fox he says "professor James Fox tells us the first words of the suspect." When I initially read the Boston Globe article a few things about the carjacking story struck me as very strange and the details of the alleged carjacking seemed suspect; but add the fact that "Danny's" mouthpiece is a Northeastern University Professor of Criminology, this "Danny" story just seems like a complete farce IMO.

Btw the story about how Tamerlan Tsarnaev allegedly gained access to the Mercedes has changed three times since the initial reporting and include: Tamerlan opened the drivers side door from the outside, Tamerlan was screaming at "Danny" and "Danny" couldn't hear him so he rolled down his window and Tamerlan opened the door from the inside, and "Danny" rolled down his window and Tamerlan opened the door (with no explanation of how it was opened).


If you recall "Danny" allegedly made his miraculous escape from the Mercedes SUV while Tamerlan was fiddling with the GPS and Dzokhar was in the store buying snacks. Instead of chasing or killing "Danny" the Tsarnaev's let him escape 200 feet away. Instead of frantically trying to escape or ditch Danny's car or at least throw away his mobile phone, the brothers took the car and wound up in the shootout with one gun that apparently had an endless clip. However, the biggest flaw in the Danny story is seen in this photo:



Notice the reflection in the right glass door, it's Tamerlan. Tamerlan and Dzokhar were both in the store making purchases and couldn't look more relaxed. If you recall, the full photo I shared above only came out long after the cropped shot of just Dzokhar leaving the store.

"Danny" in my opinion is spewing the words of Professor James Fox and a cursory look at Fox's bio might make you think so too: Author of eighteen books, including Violence and Security on Campus (2010), The Will to Kill (2007) and Extreme Killing (2005); Member of USA TODAY Board of Contributors; Author of the Crime and Punishment blog for the Boston Globe (Since 2010) and Former columnist for the Boston Herald, writing three times monthly on crime and justice issues.

If the "Danny" story can not be proved, the rest of the night's events become highly suspect.

That being said, CNN has certainly unintentionally raised some key issues about the official story.
