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.

I still think it’s some pissed off Occupier.

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.
