Even $$ this is a protest against the “bad” treatment the prisoners are getting at Gitmo

Shep Smith is a total idiot..just announced a report from the hospital that "ten people suffered decapitations of one type or another.."

He obviously meant dismemberment..

Sounds like the JFK Library had a bomb go off and it was not a fire. Confusing reports I have heard. One report said it was a fire at the library.

CBS in Boston says that more devices were found under the grandstands, but can not confirm it. Just what they were told.

A guy supposedly was found on surveillance tape putting backpacks into garbage cans.

I think amputation, but dismemberment would have worked.

No one decapitated would be in critical condition, Shep

I am not sure, but if I look at the photo’s I see a lot of people with injured legs. I suspect the bomb was a copy of the IRA nailbombs:

If it was in a bag on the sidewalk with the bomb in it and standing upwards it would create this kind of injuries by the fragments of nails that fly sideways, in this case at street level.

BREAKING NEWS! President Obama has released a photo of himself talking on the phone with the FBI director.

Not so breaking news: It’s all about him.

The New York Post has updated and never changed their claim that there were 12 dead. I kept seeing 2 on all the news channels. Haven’t read through threads but have been reading headlines and jumping around news sites.

A 20yr old Saudi suspect is being held under guard at a ‘hospital’.
On CNN, Peter Bergen stated that the terrorist bombings in Boston was “likely right-wing” extremists. Disgusting jerk!

I don’t suppose he will admit that his administration dropped the ball by focusing on conservative, Caucasian, Christian males who own firearms, especially those “unstable” veterans? So far we’ve paid a small price compared to what the Clinton administration’s misdirection of focus cost us on 9/11, but I doubt that give any comfort to the victims and their families.

I just heard a police officer confirm on the Boston police radio that they arrested some one a while ago.

Possessing the breastplate of the Urim and Thummim seems to give its wearer all kinds of power. Funny how it only seems to end up in the hands of evil d-bags.

When he has to answer to God about this little issue, I think he might wish for Satan as his attorney but either way, someone has to take the lake of fire turnoff coming up so they can experience its soothing 6000 degree water. I think its mineral content might help with the old arthritis.

...and can easily use them as the recipient of their anger...

 Many people find it difficult to deny Jesus existed, so they throw in the good old classic question,
the inevitable comment, the predictable attack on Christianity that runs along the line of why would a God
who is all-good, all-knowing, and all-powerful allow bad things to happen to good people?

Why can't a Living Prophet® EVER seem to 'prophecy' this kind of thing?

Why do 'physics' NEVER warn the public of these things?

The "press conferences" are hardly worth tuning in on.

They boil down to officials giving non-answers to questions you can't hear.

Why bother. You get more fresh news from FR.
