huh?

Drew: Also folks - be aware that at this stage in the news cycle pretty much no one knows anything, and 90% of everything's gonna be issued a correction later by MSM.  That said it still helps to know what's going on now


Once they erase the memories of people who know too much! (according to the tinfoil hat crowd)

As someone who was near OKC during that bombing, take the reports of a Saudi national being in custody with a heaping dose of skepticism until confirmed.  Reports immediately after the OKC bombing talked about a car-ful of Middle Eastern types speeding away from the blast area.

Police chief says they are treating everything they find currently as "potential explosive device," and EOD may be blowing things up as they find them. So if you left anything behind at the Marathon, you won't be getting it back...

Endive Wombat: Cork on Fork: the NY Post is reporting that a Saudi National is being held as a suspect at the hospital. Take that with a gran of salt.

Arrested for being brown and speaking with an accent?


Well, it wouldn't surprise me if some runner got reported for being brown. But the Post is still running the "12 dead" garbage so I really don't think they have much credibility.

And the rest.

It's a good thing you're got the proper perspective in all this...

SithLord: Suspect detained


I think the NY Post has been thoroughly discredited by the Boston PD's press conference by now. Zero mention of any "suspect in custody".

I heard on the police scanner that there's now an APB out for a "Babba Booey". A terrorist name if there ever was one.

@nadie

Paranoid people blame others when there is a group who constantly thrives on making people paranoid in order to profit and remove freedoms.

Christians attack others based on others being brown. Muslims attack other based on christians attacked them. The circle jerk of aggression

When the rightwing media profits by screaming the brown BOOGY MAN IS GONNA GET CHA, its time to realize who is the true terrorist.

"There will most likely be a third stage...", reported by Amanda Delp - API News

I understand about indecision but when there are people living in competition,... I guess all we really want is to have some peace of mind.

xxmedium: NY Post reporting 12 dead, 50 injured with one suspect in custody being treated for shrapnel wounds.


Fark the Post. They're doing that shiat to get page hits. Every other news outlet is reporting 2 (possibly 3) dead and around 25 injured.

No way it was the Norks.  Crazy white guy with an agenda (Sovereign Citizen, anti-government, or some twisted way in protesting new gun laws) or Middle Eastern

And much like high school, the athletes get all the attention and the people hitting the books get ignored.

Eirik: Orallo: Boston police confirms another explosion at JFK Library

I'm seeing that it's unrelated, a failure in the mechanical room.

Boston city councilor on Howie Carr show said he was told there was a bomb in Charlestown, but didn't know where.


Great F'ing news at a time like this...

WTF??? we are doomed as a spicies....
 
2013-04-15 05:02:51 PM
"WTC7 has collapsed", BBC reported with WTC7 standing in the background of the camera shot.

I believe nothing that is "reported" while there's still smoke in the air and bodies being removed.

No, but for sure this was some kind of terror attack. No chance it was some accident or random idiot with a pipe bomb.

How can anyone say who did what. While I don't agree with these people or their policies, I'm not ready to sacrifice liberty for something something maybe sorta looks like security.


Because a bombing related to a live sporting event like the Olympics on Tax Day positively reeks of domestic right wing terrorism

And by "a correction later by MSM", you mean "fictional sack of horse sh*t pulled out of some White House Press Director's arse.".

norks are responsible for bombing a plane that killed a hundred plus people. As well as other bombing attacks in south korea. But ya this was not likely them

OK, must have run out of solid information: The "government profiler" is now on MSNBC, telling us how we don't know anything for sure, but explaining everything about the person who set the bomb nevertheless.

Your tenuous theory tells me you desperately want it to be so.  Seek counseling.

You can hear both explosions.

I'm honestly surprised things like this don't happen in the US more often. We are a very large nation with a ton of enemies both internal and external. Add in the fact that if you want to detonate a bomb somewhere there isn't a whole lot stopping you from acquiring the materials and doing it. Hopefully this is the typical american loner/psycho/mass-murderer and not a prequel to some sort of large sustained terror campaign funded/coordinated by some sort of radical group in our biggest cities.

It could have just been a coincidence. NPR is saying there was no chatter or talks of a potential attack in intelligence channels.

If your Weeners to things like this is to consider how it can be used against your political enemies, you are a failure as a human being.
