So, are these guys going to pull an Eric Rudolph and get the 1st responders in before he sets off another, bigger explosion?

We hear of all tapes of weird police and fires calls from here our (One news stations airs the odd ones) but one area I have never heard an explosive is after the first one is found and more devastating explosives are timed so they get media coverage (and deaths like the Atlanta Olympics).

1) Sooner or later (a concerned politician-d) is going to demand that they do come up with some sort of early warning system be implemented (I don’t mean the one they have now (9/11) but one that they end setting up after these atrocities. I can’t imagine how they came up with the super sensitive system that overwhelms the number of officers available. Then the explosions will only get worse, far worse. It’s almost like it’s planned.

3) While I’ll leave it up to your own imagination what is causing these instances not to mention the exponential buildups in their numbers of explosions, number of obviously perfectly timed explosives (during a commute or someone with a lack of conscience I will say this sounds like a perfect way to implement draconian gestures like Marshall law and have the people except it.)

4) There will be people who won’t use the police and look at these thugs and their patterns by themselves.

Not saying it was a false flag, but is it outside the realm of possibility? Remember that this administration got two federal agents and hundreds of Mexican citizens murdered with the “Fast & Furious” gun running scheme they were using to try to build a case against the 2A. Jones is a kook, IMO, but you know the old saw about broken clocks. We have to face all the possibilities.

WCVB is reporting that 'multiple' devices have been found at various locations near the marthon route.

Boston police is asking anyone who has video of finish line before and during the explosion, please contact them.

I do agree that we need to secure the borders better. The stooges in congress don’t want to do much about it. I don’t doubt he have all sorts of threats coming into our country. Not just Muslims terrorists, but also deadly Mexican drug gangs and cartel members.

ABC reporting that no radiation appears to be associated with these bombs.

An earlier reporter on scene said that there was evidence of shotgun pellets from at least one of the explosions.

The timing of this is very strange. It appears from the video the bombs went off around 2:04 in Boston. The race starts now at 10:00 am but it used to start at noon up until a few years ago. If the race had started at the old time the winner would have been expected to cross the line at around 2:04. Could the bomber not known that the time has changed?

Prayers for all the victims.

Me, my wife and two grandchildren were in that candy store, Sugar Heaven, 24 hours before the bomb went off in front of it.

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.

That will indeed further loss of freedom, and i have 2 friends that are were and are (unless they arrested them) handing out gospel tracts at the Marathon, calling souls to repentance and faith. And Bostonians are among the least open to the gospel, and among the most antagonistic towards it, and can easily use them as the recipient of their anger ( not Islam) over this tragedy.

Pray with me for the Lord's protection and deliverance.

Someone on NBC mentioned white supremacists a few minutes ago — as people that planned something similar at one time.

JFK Library incident also apparently a bomb according to the info from the presser.
