Yeah, now I know. A bit more research about that statement took me too the original twitter post (8am) by the Boston globe. They just mentioned there was controlled explosions which in context referred to disarming other artifacts.

Man, however... This shit ultra sucks. I've family in Boston.
Sad

Who the heck did this and why???

It's a fairly safe bet we will find out who and why. If not soon, eventually. I'm sure authorities are doing everything within their power.

You should also be aware that this event is surrounded by a great deal of misinformation:

3rd explosion at JFK Library didn't happen.
There were no secondary unexploded devices found.
There have been no suspects held in custody, only People Of Interest held for questioning. Not the same.

POTUS just finished his press release and clearly stated that at this time almost nothing is known about the perpetrator(s).

He also encourages anyone who was there who might have information or media (photos, video) to contact authorities ASAP.

Obviously marathon runners are very much into running - can you imagine what it must be like for them to realize their legs/feet etc. are gone?

Just disgusting. So senseless.

So I wouldn't be ignorant if I was a typical junk food eating american that ignored what our troops do to people on a daily basis, while shitting my pants over the rare occasions that what we do to others gets done to us.

There are always mistakes made...the news comes too quickly and all it takes is ONE news cast person to say the wrong thing...

Lots of finger pointing...Lots of criticism too.

I'll make this real basic for your simple mind:
par·a·ple·gi·a (p r-pl j-, -j) n. Complete paralysis of the lower half of the body including both legs, usually caused by damage to the spinal cord.

Not the same as missing limbs you ignorant little twit.

How do you personally make the decision on which parts of early reporting are false or true?

What if just minutes after the bombing the name and picture of the alleged bomber was on the news? Would you question it because of the speed in which the perpetrator was named?

I make the determination that nearly everything in early reporting is likely to be wrong to some degree or another. As to an alleged bomber I would want to know where such information was obtained? Did this person release a video admitting the attack?

So if nearly everything in early reporting is considered false, then at what point do you consider which reports are true or not and how do you personally come to that conclusion.

In the hypothetical secenario.... Would you be curious how the authorities came to name the person that was alleged in the attacks so soon even if it was long before any such video were to be released of the bomber admitting the attack.

RE: House of Chas hijinx at Boston Marathon?
A few quick observations.

Whoever said way back that this was a clear terrorist move because the second explosion was intended to harm people responding to the first is wrong. The physical separation of the two bombs makes this speculation weak at best.

From what I have seen neither explosion was particularly large. The amount of explosive was apparently quite limited. If this was a terrorist attack and not some random nut job they were fairly incompetent terrorists.

Getting on the ferry one morning there was the Marin Co. sheriffs swat team nearby getting all suited up in their body armor etc. A ferry employee said they were going to practice something. Just because bomb sniffing dogs were around does not at all mean there was a known threat out there. It may have been simply training or it may have been the bomb squad doing something they felt they should.

Time will tell some things but as in all these events much will be hidden. The important thing is that the illegal and immoral response to 9-11 should not be repeated. No bogey men this time, real perpetrators.
