No you aren’t loath to mention it, less than an hour since the explosions occurred and you are already spouting conspiracy BS. You couldn’t wait to get on here to “mention” it.

It seems as though everything has to be a fed gov't conspiracy on FreeRepublic nowadays, irrational TRUTHERISM has taken over FreeRepublic.

“Gosh... who could have done it?”

According to Nappy Pants and Obummer, could have just as likely been your 89-yr old grandmother than anyone else.

Lying to ourselves because of PC is causing death and injury. . .all because we don’t want to offend those that want to kill us.

What. . .is Obummer going to classify this attack as “work-place violence” like he classified the Ft Hood shooting?

Didn’t Boston celebrate Patriots Day on April 15th until the terrorist attacks happened on 9-11 when they moved it to Sept. 11th?

CBS’ Kylie Atwood witnessed first explosion, ran to her right, into the area where a second explosion occurred. She reports there has been a third explosion in an area where police found another explosive. She thinks they detonated it. Scott Pelley, who interviewed her, concluded it was entirely possible that all this was caused by an accidental gas explosion.
Now reporting protective measures being taken at the White House.

Now Cavuto is mentioning that the winners and elites had already finished running and the stragglers were hit. Moral of that story?

Much as I dislike promotion of the theory this early (no evidence yet, more like you hope it is), make me wonder that either it is or the Obama is saddled with an event he can’t just spin Alinsky-style: this sort of thing will demand a real classic American response, not a “workplace violence” dismissal or “legislative launchpoint” opportunism.

The network can(?) be taken down to the point that only those ‘whitelisted’ numbers can use it. Not sure the status of that agreement in the northeast.

People overload the voice, data, and SMS channels with ‘OMG’ messages and first responders can’t complete a ‘call’.

Not sure if the whole bit of restricting the network is implemented though. Agreed to for sure. It makes sense.

It appeared to be a low yield explosion — not c-4 or other military grade explosive.

Brian Williams says it too early to come to any conclusions...

Hey Brianne... It’s terrorism knucklehead! You and your leftwing politically correct POS brothers and sisters in the media are complicit by giving these cowards political cover.

Unfortunately for America, the grown ups are not in charge at this time.

Lord God please bless the souls of those who have lost their lives today and please ease the pain and loss of the loved ones that are connected.

I am heartsick for this country.

The bottom line is that bombs should be outlawed.

Agreed. Especially high capacity bombs. We need universal background checks for all bomb purchases, at the very least.

Good point on your part. From my vantage point, the New England Cable News reports two dead and twenty three injured. I still have to be measured in my speculations, but as with Major Nidal Hassan I feel this is the Obama and Democratic peace dividend. America voted out the party of butcher Bush (/sarc) and voted in the... peace loving Democrats. Now we are reaping our peace dividend. /sarc

I don’t give a shit who did this right now, I just know we are in for an endless fcking stream of this crap because we don’t control our borders or close expired visa cases, we let “students” into the country (and you can’t swing a cat in Boston without hitting one) and never check on them...seriously, are we going to be surprised when this is handled by the BPD and no one hears about the REASON it is happening. When will we take control of our borders!

JFK Library official: Fire not related to marathon explosions

The director of the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum says that a 3 p.m. fire inside the building’s mechanical room was not caused by a device and is apparently not related to the explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line.

Tom Putnam, the director of the JFK Library, said that the incident was confined to a mechanical room near the archive section of the library.

Developing story...
