No one is claiming credit.
Muslim groups often rush to claim they did it.
Leads me to believe it’s some Occupy group.
Al Qaeda didn’t admit responsibility for 9/11 for months.

It’s the Boston Marathon.
It wasn’t a military base or some international trade outfit.
It’s something well to do people in Boston enjoy - and that’s who the occupiers are pissed at.
The timing is very suggestive - I, too, have been wondering about this.
