It could be. I made a guess based on the type of bomb and how it was done. In Israel/mideast it is the same thing. Usually 2 bombs made about the same way and placed in business areas outside urban streets with foot traffic. Now that there is a Saudi's apt being searched the motive is still unclear but I'm leaning toward the fact this Saudi doesn't like the American way. IF in fact he was responsible. Still could be someone other than him

As the details about the bombings in Boston unfold, it'd be easy to be scared. It'd be easy to feel powerless and demand that our elected leaders do something -- anything -- to keep us safe.

It'd be easy, but it'd be wrong.
Quote:
A huge amount of research on fear and the brain teaches us that we exaggerate threats that are rare, spectacular, immediate, random -- in this case involving an innocent child -- senseless, horrific and graphic. Terrorism pushes all of our fear buttons, really hard, and we overreact.

But our brains are fooling us. Even though this will be in the news for weeks, we should recognize this for what it is: a rare event. That's the very definition of news: something that is unusual -- in this case, something that almost never happens.

Quote:
Terrorism isn't primarily a crime against people or property. It's a crime against our minds, using the deaths of innocents and destruction of property as accomplices. When we react from fear, when we change our laws and policies to make our country less open, the terrorists succeed, even if their attacks fail. But when we refuse to be terrorized, when we're indomitable in the face of terror, the terrorists fail, even if their attacks succeed.

The NY Post report of 12 dead turned out to be completely untrue. 3 dead. The Post was full of ****, as per usual.

It was bandwidth issues, not a police takedown, that caused the cell service outage: http://mashable.com/2013/04/15/bosto...-service-down/.

And it turned out there were no unexploded bombs after all that could have been set off.

They have a guy in custody who is cooperating but denying any involvement. They also have video of someone dropping off back packs, and there is a dude standing on the roof in one of the surveillance videos they would like to chat with.

The smart phone wasn't around in 2001 when 911 happened. With the proliferation of these do everything phones there will surely be more images and video emerging.
You might want to find a better source than the NY post.

For some reason i think North Korea might have a hand in this. It's cowardly and underhand which is all they're legitimately capable of. I very much doubt Iran would have anything to do with this. For one they're different types of muslim, there were reported strains between any links they did have with Al Qaeda recently and Ahmadinejad is a lame duck leader there now. This wouldn't be in keeping with how Iran operates anyways.

Iran is more likely to have been involved than NK. They hardly let anyone leave. Someone needs to pay.

FBI grills Saudi man in Boston bombings
‘Smells of gunpowder’


Police took a 20-year-old Saudi national into custody near the scene of yesterday’s horrific Boston Marathon bomb attack, law-enforcement sources told The Post.

The potential suspect was questioned by the FBI and local police yesterday at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital, where he was under heavy guard while being treated for shrapnel injuries to his leg sustained in the blast.

In late afternoon, a large group of federal and state law enforcement agents raided an apartment in a building in the Saudi man’s hometown of Revere, Mass.

FBI agents could be seen through one window. It was not clear what, if anything, they found. But Revere fire officials said they were called out to support bomb-squad officers as part of an investigation of a “person of interest” in the marathon attack.

At the hospital, investigators seized the man’s clothes to examine whether they held any evidence that he was behind the attack. The law-enforcement sources also told The Post that the man was not free to leave the medical center.

He had suffered shrapnel wounds to the back of a leg but was not likely to die, a source said.

As of last night, investigators had not yet directly asked the man whether he had set off the bombs. But they had asked him general questions, such as what he was doing in the area.

The potential suspect told police he had dinner Sunday night near Boston’s Prudential Center, about half a mile from the blast site, the sources said.

He also said that he went to the Copley Square area yesterday to witness the finish of the race.

The sources said that, after the man was grabbed by police, he smelled of gunpowder and declared, “I thought there would be a second bomb.”

He also asked: “Did anyone die?”

I don't have bitterness toward life. I love my life. Look in the mirror. Because of the Boston Marathon tragedy, you got your guns ready and are gearing up for war.

Against who? Such a ridiculous statement.

The Oklahoma City bombing happened 18 years ago on April 19, 1995, if this is what you are referring to.

The New York Post has been criticized for its coverage of the Boston marathon explosions.

Soon after the blasts struck on Monday afternoon, the paper, citing law enforcement sources, said that 12 people had died. It stuck to this assertion all day, even as every other outlet put the number at two or, at the most, three. By Tuesday morning, the official toll had not risen. The Post backtracked slightly, writing, "The official death toll was three, but a law-enforcement source told The Post it could be as high as 12."

The paper was also the first to say that a "Saudi National" had been taken "into custody" by police at a local Boston hospital. Its initial stories said that the man was "identified as a suspect."

This was denied by the Boston police, who repeatedly said there was no suspect and nobody in custody. As the day went on, other outlets also reported that a man was being questioned, but only as a "person of interest" and not as a suspect.

The New York Times reported on Tuesday that investigators had concluded that the man was not involved in the attacks.

Post-watcher Michael Wolff tweeted that there was "great clucking" at the paper's parent company, News Corp., about its "marathon performance."

Ridiculous that Americans would have enough patriotism they'd be willing to defend their country and their people. I know, just scandalous.

I have a better idea! Let's go to a truck stop and scope out some sluts and bust a nut.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A person briefed on the Boston Marathon investigation says the explosives were in 6-liter pressure cookers and placed in black duffel bags.

The person says the explosives were placed on the ground and contained shards of metal, nails and ball bearings. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing.

The person says law enforcement officials have some of the bomb components but did not yet know what was used to set off the explosives

What I found amusing last night was that Obama didn't call it terrorism in his first press conference, but CNN had the word splashed all over their front page. Good work CNN, ignore Obama and state the obvious. Do it more, please.

Once they find out who did this definitively, I'd like to slit their throat myself and host a game of polo featuring their head.



I'm sure it'll be more likely he'll be sent to Florence with 3 squares and masturbation material for life.

I was in 9th grade when 9/11 happened. I was in physical science class when I heard the news. Went to geometry. . . saw the second plane hit. Just shocked and saddened. No, I didn't feel the need to gear up for war despite how emotional the time was. Knew from the get go it would launch this country into a wrongful war (Iraq) and that proved to bear itself out as a colossal failure and mistake.

I had planned to go into the service to do cryptologic linguistics after obtaining my degree (all my grandfathers back to my great-great served, plus many uncles), but I cannot go in because of my kidney issues -- which made me mad, but oh well. My cousin who went 11B, got into Special Forces and became a recruiter tried to do whatever he could, but the medical field manual or whatever they go off of bans people with my condition from entering the armed forces. Sucks, but civil service works for now.

Statements like nyuk nyuk made are beyond absurd. If she wants to get all gun ho about this, she can enlist in a branch of the services and serve her country. Getting fanatical and crazy when not all the facts are out there yet is just ridiculous.
