Boston Marathon: bombs detonated

Source

TWO bombs have exploded at the Boston Marathon, killing two people, including an eight-year-old child, and injuring more than 50. The White House is handling the incident as “an act of terror” and US President Barack Obama said “we will find out who did this and hold them accountable”

About 2.45pm local time (4.45am AEST), about three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

A Boston Globe staffer said on Twitter that dozens of people have been injured.

Runner Laura McLean of Toronto said she heard two explosions outside the medical tent.

There is video footage of the bombs being planted, and sources state a Saudi man is in custody at this time.

Aftermath

UPDATE: The report of a Saudi man being held are false. The local authorities report they have no one in custody at this time.

I’ll wait until we know for sure who did it, then I’ll get the rusty knife out. I’m a Masshole born and raised. I hate what the Commies have done to my state, but I’ll be damned if I stand by while some asshole kills my people.

Obviously, we need need London-style CC surveillance monitors covering every square inch of the country. Time to bump up the debt ceiling to pay for it.

There were a lot of flags in the area attached to the barriers, I think for the countries who had people racing. There is footage of police and bystanders breaking down the barriers so that emergency personnel would be able to reach them, and a lot of national flags got trampled in the process. Looking more closely though, that actually… Read more »

72 hour rule in effect – but I say false flag trial balloon.

The blood is clearly on the hands of the Misadministration, DHS, and the repubes like McShame and Grahamnesty. While they’ve been busy trying to register, ban, and confiscate the guns of law-abiding Americans (as well as tracking and profiling prolifers, returning vets, and various other thought criminals) a couple of Saudi shitheads set off backpack bombs on US soil killing… Read more »

The fucktardian stupidity is rampant over on Facebook. Some jackass cobbled a “photo” of a little girl, who according to them “died” in the blasts.

As of midnight, the news was saying there are 3 dead, 140[!!!] injured; and some 15 of the injured are in “critical condition.” There’s also talk of severed limbs.

I’m just grateful that our beloved Dear Leader signed off of an agreement to let Saudi Nationals (15 out of the 19) bypass our stringent passport checks before they can enter the country, something that even US citizens can’t bypass. It leaves so much more time for the Blue Handed Retards to grope little girls and rape grandma while making… Read more »

We dont know anything yet, but the “false flag” BS is more Alex Jones tinfoil hat garbage. Hey man, when your government deliberately and intentionally facilitates the deaths of almost 300 Mexicans and several border patrol agents to provide some “talking points” for gun control, people have a damn good reason to question everything that happens. When dealing with communist… Read more »

My brother in law has an old girlfriend he’s still friendly with. She’s a neurosurgeon and headed down there when it happened. She texted him first then called.

Agreed. Let’s not forget the MSMs gang rape of the truth after Newtown. We’re probably going to get some of that here.

And Bigg Dogg, “Alex Jones” and “credibility” are mutually exclusive concepts. Don’t throw the retard card, please.

Having now seen the photos, and the video of the boom, it looks consistent with a claymore. Brings back some old bad memories seeing injuries like that.

There is an update on Drudge. it looks like the bombs were built using pressure cookers. These types of pressure cooker explosives have been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a July 2010 joint FBI and Homeland Security intelligence report. One of the three devices used in the May 2010 Times Square attempted bombing was a pressure… Read more »

Emperor Misha I says:

In my opinion, and mine is worth the exact same 2 cents as everybody else’s, no more, thinking that it’s a “false flag” at this point is daft. Categorically stating that it can NOT be is just as daft.

Exactly my thought. And when the “official report” is released, well, “trust but verify”.

My wife has decided to do something about all this. She’s heading into Boston right now.

She’s going shopping in Chinatown.

She was mumbling something in Chinese, and when I ran it through my translator, it came up “Pressure cooker.” I’m sure it was an error.

The police have released the pictures of the 2 suspects. Coincidentally, the original suspect, a Saudi national named Abdulrahman Ali Arhabi, who is a student in Boston, is being deported to Saudi Arabia on the grounds of national security. Also coincidentally, Obama had an unscheduled meeting with the Saudi ambassador last night. The Arhabi family, also coincidentally, are big terrorists.… Read more »
