Bombs at the Boston Marathon: Bomb sniffing dogs present pre-race.

Round and round it goes. Where it will stop? Nobody knows?

This post has more updated info. Scroll down. Thanks

European official: Boston Marathon attacks unlikely the work of suicide bombers
 A European security official with knowledge of the investigation into twin bombings (buzz word) at the finish line of the Boston Marathon says initial evidence indicates they were not detonated by suicide bombers.
The official spoke from the United States on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak about the U.S. investigation. He says, “investigators believe it was not the work of suicide bombers” but it’s still too early to know for sure.





Boston police said the explosions occurred near the finish line — about 45 to 90 metres apart



Possible ball bearing bombs?
The official said that the devices appeared to have been made with black powder and ball bearings, but that investigators were unsure how the two that exploded had been set off.


Police attended an apartment in Revere a suburb of Boston

The apartment that investigators went to was at 364 Ocean Ave., in the Boston suburb of Revere. Law enforcement officials interviewed two men there.
Boston police issued an alert for a rental van that may have sought access to the marathon route, and another alert for a man wearing dark clothes and a hood who was seeing leaving the blast zone.

Dark clothes and a hood, eh? Means no facial identity possible. Convenient.
That suggests to me "authorities" can wave a picture of anyone in front of  the target audiences face and the target audience will lap it up. Eagerly. Perception management works so well when presented along side trauma.

In all my years blogging, I recall a ball bearing attack taking place at a Moscow airport.

Suspect in Moscow Airport bombing, reported dead months ago?!

The suspect held extremist Wahhabi ideologies. So we are talking Chechen, most likely.
His family claimed at the time he ( alleged bomber)was already dead.
Perhaps he was? Perhaps he wasn't?

Why am I rehashing such old news at this time?
With all the tit for tat going on between the US and Russia. And the obvious intent of the US to destabilize Russia.... Let me put it this way, if Russia got the frame/ blame, I would not be the least bit surprised.
Not at this critical juncture.
Another UN Security council meeting on April 18th: Will Russia and China veto?
If Russia is blamed were the attacks timed to coincide with the UN meeting?
We shall see.

The news was spinning every angle yesterday. Rehashing 9/11. Iraq. Afghanistan. International/Domestic 'terrorism'
 But backpacks were a constant no matter what angle the corporate media presented
Oh and one other phrase that got mentioned. "IED's" IED's like those that are seen in Afghanistan and Iraq- These statements were being blathered by some talking head who might have been Diane Sawyer .
IED = improvised explosive device
Intelligence agencies like those for covert ops and operatives


Update: UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions

 University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines. 
"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.

Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."

CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.
  Updated # 2: it is being reported that the explosives were pressure cookers "bombs" in backpacks

Homeland Security Warned In 2010 Of Pressure Cooker Bombs Like Those In Boston Marathon Explosion

  The bombs used to attack the Boston Marathon appear to have been homemade improvised explosive devices (IEDs) made with components easily available in chain big box retail or hardware stores.

 "IEDs represent the most ubiquitous threat to our nation for those intent on conducting physical attacks. Law enforcement and the private sector need tools to provide the capability to prevent such incidents," Robert Liscouski of Implant Sciences told Fast Company. Implant Sciences is a Boston-area company that manufactures portable explosives detectors.

 Implant Sciences, a Boston area company that just so happens to manufacture portable explosive detectors. Convenient. 

Update #3- April 17/2013:  Boston Marathon bombings: More details, more questions


-Within a day of the Oklahoma City bombing, officials had named their suspect: Timothy McVeigh. Within two days of the 9/11 attacks, investigators had zeroed in on al Qaeda.
- Two questions continue to hound authorities: Who triggered the attack, and why?
- "All of the talking heads that discuss this incident and incidents like it, if your experience and your expertise is Middle East terrorism, it has the hallmarks of al Qaeda or a Middle East group. If your experience is domestic groups and bombings that have occurred here, it has the hallmarks of a domestic terrorist like Eric Rudolph in the 1996 Atlanta Summer Olympics bombings," former FBI Assistant Director Tom Fuentes said.
 - One was housed in a pressure cooker hidden inside a backpack,
- The second bomb was also housed in a metal container, but there's not enough evidence to determine whether it was also in a pressure cooker, the FBI said
"We really don't know if it's a foreign or domestic threat," said Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee. "We don't know whether this was a homegrown terrorist or part of a wider conspiracy."
And the possibility of a "lone wolf" attacker has some in the intelligence community concerned.
"This is what you worry about the most," a source with knowledge of the investigation said. "No trail, no intelligence."
So what is up with the delay in assigning blame?  Within the day Oklahoma was called. 9/11 the same.
 Though this news report suggests it took two days, going on recall, it seemed the day of 9/11 the media was spinning Al Quaeda.

 Could the delay just come down to, how authorities want to play this out?

That is not a new or surprising assertion. Many innocent persons have been sent to jail because it is politically expedient. It likely happens on a near daily basis. How many times can you recollect where local police have simply built a case against some innocent person because it is convenient. Because the public is distraught and the police need to appear to be doing something..... so they can justify there pay cheques and ever increasing budgets at taxpayer expense.
Let me give you just two examples. And state I will bet you can find hundreds, if not thousands of such cases

One in the US:

The city said it reached a $9.9 million settlement agreement on Thursday with a man who was released from prison nearly two decades after being framed for a murder he did not commit by a police officer who doubled as a mob hit man.

One in Canada. Quite a notorious case. 

Mr. Milgaard spent more than two decades in prison. He was eventually freed in 1992, partly because of his former travelling companions' recantations of their trial evidence. One witness, Albert Cadrain, admitted having lied to police and the court solely in exchange for the posted $2,000 reward.

Then there was the case of Karla Homolka: She who more or less got off for three murders, after making a sweetheart deal in order to make the case against her then husband Paul Bernardo. Karla was no less guilty.
However, politics reign supreme. Not justice.

Ok, so I gave you three cases. My bad. Believe me, there were more cases that were bubbling up into my memory.

My point being..Politics seems to drive the resolution of crimes as much, if not more then justice.
When I first put this post up, I suggested a 'framing' of Russia dependent on the UN security council outcome of the April 18/13 meeting.
There are other parties that could be assigned the blame, for political reasons. It won't mean that a one of them are involved. It will just mean like 61 year old Barry Gibbs, David Milgaard and Karla Homolka the decision taken is the most politically viable.

  2. "They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise"

    Of course there was nothing to worry about. Just like with the "training exercises" that occurred during the 9/11 and 7/7 attacks. Funny how those "bomb sniffing" dogs being used at the start and finish lines failed to smell the bombs at the finish line.

    1. Yah, that is odd.

      More training exercises and bomb sniffing dogs?

      I just updated and I have to tell you, the fact that an IED goes off in Boston at the Marathon with all the cameras present and handy, and then lo and behold there is a company right in Boston that makes IED detection devices

      I find that so much like an promotion.
      Well we have the IED's and look we have a company right here ready to go with detectors
      Problem, reaction,solution
      It would be interesting to find out who is connected to Implant Sciences.
      This reminds me of what's his face, ugly man and the airport scanners???

    2. You're thinking of Michael Chertoff.

      Implant Sciences - what a spooky name, what kind of implants? Nothing sinister apparently, originally they were involved in Ion Implantation Technology for the semiconductor industry. Not a growth market in N.America. They have diversified and adapted their tech for ion detection, specifically narcotics and explosives. Their press releases announce orders for 7 units here, $600,000 there - pretty small beer. No doubt they will use the Boston bombing to pimp their wares to DHS and TSA but I don't see them as part of the evil machine. Worth keeping an eye on tho'.

      Black powder bombs: are we going to see clampdown on sales of black powder for diy bullet loading and restrictions on bullet and cartridge hoarding (apart from DHS who need 2 billion rounds, largely dum-dum, for something)?

      "Black powder bombs: are we going to see clampdown on sales of black powder for diy bullet loading and restrictions on bullet and cartridge hoarding (apart from DHS who need 2 billion rounds, largely dum-dum, for something)?"

      Black power is the old fashioned gunpowder from the 19th century and before. It's used in firearms that are replicas of those old fashioned guns, not in modern guns. You probably knew that, but maybe someone else didn't. I think in most American states black powder is more restricted and monitored than modern gunpowder because it is classed as an actual explosive, instead of a propellant. At least that is the way it used to be years ago, I don't know what new restrictions may have come into place since 9/11.

      Some speculation. The use of black powder is interesting, since it is probably harder to get than modern gunpowder. Did the bombers want to see blame directed towards "gun nuts"? For use in making more restrictive laws? The media would have no problem portraying it that way. Black powder also makes a Muslim/evil foreigner blame victim unlikely, but the zionist media have shown they can spin anything in the USA and get away with it. One other reason for the use of black powder is that bomb sniffing dogs, and other bomb detection equipments used, may not be able to sniff out black powder, since it is a very different substance from modern explosive compounds. They may not train the dogs for it, or the equipment may not be designed to detect it, or maybe cant detect it as easily, since very few people use black powder for anything, and I don't think any terrorist attacks in the past involved its use.

      The ricin letters seem to be part of this, and point to a pretext for domestic police state enhancement, rather than a pretext for more nazi-like (or more accurately - zionazi-like) war crimes against people in another state.

      Well, I learned something new here!

      Interesting, when one thinks of the fact that bomb sniffing dogs and heightened security should scare off a would be bomber, but, if the dogs aren't trained to sniff black powder that could make a difference

      "The ricin letters seem to be part of this, and point to a pretext for domestic police state enhancement"

      When I first heard the ricin, I thought, OMG 9/11 yet again
      I can't be the only one that notices the rerun

      Actually I didn't, I thought black-powder was just a generic term. However I doubt any imposed restrictions will make the distinction.

      Well, it was only speculation as I don't know what substances the dogs are trained to find, they may be trained on it for all I know, so that may be dead end.

      "However I doubt any imposed restrictions will make the distinction."

      There used to be quite a difference in the restrictions between black and modern gunpowder purchases, though that was back in the 80's. But that may have changed since the 9/11 attacks. Probably buying either now involves new restrictions and a paper trail.

      That raises another question about the choice of black powder. Unless the bombers made it themselves, there would be an obvious paper trail leading to them. Since few buy black powder, as compared to modern gunpowder, it would be much easier to trace those who bought black powder. They would stand out more. The obvious choice would be to use modern gunpowder as one would blend in with the regular buyers then.

      If they made the stuff themselves, which is easy to do, as black powder isn't even a chemical compound, it's just a mixture of charcoal, sulfur and saltpeter, I'm not sure if a difference could be discovered by forensic investigation between homemade and commercially purchased black powder. Making their own would be the only solid reason I can see a bomb maker using the stuff, since that would not leave a paper trail leading back to them.

      BTW, it would be a thorough falseflagger who went as far as to make their own gunpowder in order to make it look like home grown gun nuts did the bombing.

      On 'Israel Memorial Day', Boston gets a taste of what its like to be besieged Israel.-
      Hospital scene after Marathon was like a battle zone

      "The Israelis, unfortunately, have this several times a year, and we asked their disaster-response teams to come and help us upgrade our disaster response,” Conn said. “And I’m very pleased that we went through that orientation and additional training."

      And now: Israeli police head to US to aid in Boston Marathon bombing investigation
      Ain't that nice, where would America be without best-buddy Israel?
