We need facts here. Today’s “journalists would report an M-80 ‘firecracker’ as an explosion.

What really happened, in objective terms?

FoxNews:

Explosions seem definitely ‘caused’ rather than accident.

30 injured, at least 3 dead.

Watch the mainstream media blame angry white extremist right wing militia, and the need for an assault weapons ban, more gun control in general and right wing talk radio restrictions...

Yes, I’m expecting that. As well as the subsequent embarrassment and hushup when they suddenly discover a Muslim or group thereof as the actual perpetrator.

Double explosions are trademark Muslim attack.

The first to cause injuries. The second to kill first responders.

How long until Obama and Napolitano declare it to be workplace violence. Also, what will the story be out of D.C. regarding what happened. Are there any pissed off Muslims who are upset about videos on You Tube>

I was thinking the same “Boston” + “Tea Party” + “tax day” = Republican’s fault obviously.

More than likely there were two charges that were supposed to go off simultaneously, but didn’t. This would indicate amateurs.

Wait a minute - that's Obama's strategy for drone strikes. Oh well, same thing - a Muslim attack.

It’s because of the sequester.

If we would send not only our kids, but more money to defend the blue cities , all would be well.

This means the TSA has a license to be EVERYWHERE from here on out.

You will no longer be able to escape them by boycotting airports.

If they were amateurs, that would pretty much take out the North Koreans.

IMHO for them, they just want money. I don’t think if they were found out, that we would be much in a giving mood.

Lot of people speculating about a natural gas explosion. Being older than dirt, I can remember when they used to light natural gas and burn it off at the wells. We used to think it was great to go out and watch (hey there were no video games then).

Always some variety of blueish explosion. Looking at the color of that blast, I’d bet a beer that natural gas had nothing to do with it.

Multiple bombs exploded. One other bomb found before it exploded. Multiple deaths, dismemberments. "I saw a leg fly by me." Pieces or bodies scattering the street. One in Lenox Hotel. Timed to get the most victims possible. Friend one block away from the explosions. Not hurt, thank G-d.

Gosh... who could have done it?
