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

They are the only ones I've read saying more than 2 dead. Has there been any other confirmation on that?


Boston PD just got on television and called it fake. They state 2 dead, 23 injured.

cfletch13: Any truth to the reports that they have a suspect in custody that is a Saudi national?  Or is this one of these false reports that come out in the panic of a breaking news story that Conspiracy Theorists will use to turn into "evidence" of a cover up?

/Someone screen capture this for reposting proof in the future that I called it...


Even if they have someone in custody -that probably translates to, "suspicious looking individual with possible access to locations near the marathon."

He could be innocent and experiencing an bit of bad luck.

It seems to be false. So I'm sure we'll get a Newtown style conspiracy coverup later this week, yes.


the new york post is reporting it, but, last I read, and I read it quickly, they didn't really name their source for the info.  and, it's more that a saudi who has shrapnel wounds is under guard at the hospital.  the news folk seemed to have decided he was a suspect.

Gyrfalcon: Endive Wombat: Infernalist: NK's April 15th warning seems a bit scary right about now...

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

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


Yes, it's a "terror" attack, and not random.  Might be a lone crazy, though...for the record, it's REALLY easy for one guy to make sizable, lethal pipe bombs...high school buddies of mine did it frequently, just for the lulz, back before everyone got all paranoid.

Fortunately they weren't murderous SOBs, and just chucked them in ponds to see the geyser of water.

I've blown up enough shiat to recognize an amateur explode-y builder. I'm putting my money on a nut (or a very small group of nuts), probably domestic. The fact that it's tax day seems to be a coincidence rather than a motivation, I'm looking more at large groups of people in a small area.

shivashakti: For those Farkers that know that I'm in Boston, I'm fine. I was at home a mile away from the bombing scene at the time. My roommate and one of my housemates and his friend (who ran the marathon) were there when the explosions happened, but they're all OK.

This is really f*cked up...

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.".

Right, because everything the White House ever says, 100% of it, is a total lie. Of course.

Go back to watching Alex Jones.


Call me whatever kind of nut you want but most of what comes out of the White House press office is a lie, and I felt that way when Bush was in office too, it aint anti-Obama rhetoric. You should treat anything released by politicians from either side as a mirror image of our justice system. It is a lie until proven true beyond reasonable doubt.

If it was a directed charge with that many people, I'd expect a lot more arms, legs, and heads to go flying -- for hundreds of feet.  I could be completely wrong, of course, but it does look like a couple of overgrown firecrackers that wasted most of their energy in a fireball.

Or it's a coincidence, because the marathon was today.

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

Chee-ya. Because if anyone knows what's happening on terrorist chatter channels it's NPR. Derp.
You know what NPR was playing while this happened?
A show about whether or not Pablo Neruda's body should be exhumed.
The mind boggles.


I don't see why NPR talking to intelligence officers would be any less reliable than another news station. But if you don't like them that is ok.

This are relatively small bombs and look at the carnage it caused already. I really hate to see someone setting up a dirty bomb or God forbid an actual nuke in any city let alone an American city.

Sadly, I'd have to agree.  If it's not a lie, it's at least spun to a fare-thee-well, or it's a trial balloon that can be later denied.

When I'm emperor, first thing I'll do is ban spokespersons, particularly for elected officials.  You want your point of view heard, you'll do it yourself or not at all.  No hiding.

My spokesman will, of course, announce this policy.
