IronTom: BrieBelle00: IronTom: BrieBelle00: Al Jazeera's English station is also providing live-feed coverage of everything here:LinkSo?"So"...? So... so... what? It's a link to a news feed (you know, like the other eleventy billion up there?). I'm not sure what aspect of this your brain is failing to process... sorry.angry?
FatherDale: Well, Charles Krauthammer of Fox News told us that this was an act of foreign terrorism
cameroncrazy1984: You would've been the second man to walk on his face?
IndyMBA: Longtime Lurker: Jesus Christ, some guy at the Press Conference just asked if this was all a plot to take our handguns away and to curtail civil liberties.The curt response was priceless and now they're ignoring him.
Somacandra: Samwise Gamgee: Begoggle: locustfajita: religion of peace?There aren't any.At least the buddhists typically only immolate themselves.[i.imgur.com image 425x643]That's a big negatory on that. Common myth.
Vacation Bible School: T.rex: That #8 pic... the dude in the cowboy hat is holding the guy's femoral artery, keeping him from bleeding out.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWHHWB3Jr60Quick street interview with cowboy hat guy.
sheep snorter: Ring leaders to be rounded up for this domestic terrorism by the TeaParty:LimbaughBeckKoch brosBachmannAnd the rest./Its time to clean house and send them to Gitmo.
Thrag: hockeyfarker: what_now: They keep showing this video, and there's an old guy who's 10 feet from the finish and when the bomb hits, he simply collapses. I know it's not the worst thing that happened, but the idea of a guy of advanced years getting hit by shrapnel 10 feet from finishing a marathon... I don't even.I saw some aftermath pictures, that guy was okay. Well, he wasn't bleeding, eyes were open and alert, cops were helping him, anyways. No shrapnel. Probably couldn't hear shiat though.He's being interviewed on CNN right now.
ArgusRun: I'm going to go home, work on some homemade electronics while watching Archer and then drink myself to sleep.When I wake up in the morning there will be some actual verifiable information available, and the news organizations will come to some sort of consensus about not showing picture 8.
jim32rr: Badgers: GoldSpider: ...and of course here come all the "thoughts and prayers" flooding Facebook from people who desperately want to feel like they've contributed something and were 'a part" of the event.Replace "prayers" with "faps". It's about as useful and similarly self-centered...If opinions are like assholes then you two are like an opinion.
Amos Quito: derp
Sid_6.7: ACunningPlan: Yes, because placing vague calls is a show of real heroism; let's blame the authorities for not being psychic. Tell that to the parents of the little boy in Warrington who was blown to pieces, but not quite enough to kill him instantly, so he had the pleasure of dying in hospital a short while later - he was buying a Mothers' Day gift. Of course, a warning was telephoned: not to the police, mind you but to the Samaritans [if you don't know who they are it's a suicide helpline] giving the location of one bomb - IIRC correctly two bombs went off almost simultaneously at different locations.But bless the IRA, they did call ahead first. Casualties of war, they call them and hey, it proves terrorism does work. Odd Sein Fein renounced violence on September 12th 2001 - never saw the need prior to that date, I wonder why.I'm not saying they're heroic. Far from it.This discussion originally began from some pointing out that this bombing does not have the IRA's fingerprints on it with what we know so far.If you're incapable of agreeing with that, then you really do have no idea what you're talking about.
that bosnian sniper: hardinparamedic: so you're insinuating a US soldier did this?That's what you're saying here?Wade Michael Page, Nidal Hasan, Jim David Adkisson, Timothy McVeigh, Terry Nichols, and Michael Fortier. Six names, right off the top of my head, and I know if I went to my bookshelf I could probably double or triple that list with less time and effort than it took me to write thispost. What do all six of those people have in common?
loveblondieo: Parts of Pennsylvania Ave in DC are blocked off around the White House.
WizardofToast: The Commissioner had a farking InfoWars microphone on his stand. Did Alex Jones bribe him a million bucks to take the false flag question?
what_now: FriarReb98: I need to think about something off topic so here goes:If the Sox weren't going out of town for three days, do you think they'd still have tomorrow's game? Also, what in the hell is Fenway gonna be like on Friday when they come back? For that matter, how about the Celtics tomorrow or the Bruins on Wednesday night?? Those are gonna be clusterfarks of security, I'd imagine....The celtics game tomorrow is cancelled, not to be rescheduled.At North Station today, everyone getting on a train was searched.
exvaxman: I just got an email from a cousin who has a studio 1/2 block away from the explosion. I was getting worried, turns out that she was sick and slept all day just waking up to this horror.
farkingismybusiness: Here is another angle of the Picture #8 guy. NSFW GORE The Cowboy is squeezing his artery."The man in the cowboy hat is Carlos Arredondo. He is an immigrant citizen of the U.S. who lost his son in Iraq and is now a peace activist and speaker. When the explosions happened, you can see that he did not hesitate to run towards the chaos and help, obviously trying to get this poor man out of there and to hold a tourniquet on one of his severed legs. Later, he was being interviewed, visibly shaking from shock and holding an American flag, soaked in the blood of other people. Carlos Arredondo's selflessness and bravery should be known and applauded."
Amos Quito: Kibbler: If there had been an effective use of ball bearings as shrapnel, I'm pretty sure there would be more like 100+ dead by now. It looks to me like these were crude, weak bombs made by morons.FBI recruits?Now
mudpants: What picture #8 ?
TheShavingofOccam123: To be fair, the crowd was pissed because an UDF member had attacked AN IRA FUNERAL WITH GRENADES a few days before.
MustangFive: My money is on a white RW male between the ages of 35 & 50, who drank the Tea Party Kool-Aid ("Taxed Enough Already!!!!!11!!!!ELEVENTY!!!") and decided that Boston would make a fine target due to:
RIP Running Man
SovietCanuckistan: Has anybody seen news/footage/pics/anything from the site of the 2nd bomb explosion? I have only seen the first one by the flags, zero news about the 2nd one.
DamnYankees: Wow, first question to Patrick is whether this is a false flag. What the hell.
Mock26: So, has anyone in this thread yet blamed the government for this?
chewielouie: Not sure if anyone posted this, but looting marathon merchandise during the aftermath? Despicable. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1hM7Ura6Q4w
what_now: Don't have CNN- is he ok? Did he finish?
