Police confirmed that at least three people lost their lives in today´s deadly Boston Marathon terror attack as counter-terrorism sources in the city revealed that seven devices were planted across the city - but only two detonated. Law enforcement in the city said that they found what they believed were five additional, undetonated explosive devices around the Boston area. The additional devices were uncovered as police frantically inspected all suspicious packages, many left behind as runners and pedestrians rushed away from the scene in the aftermath of the blasts.

Full title: Boston Marathon bomber planted SEVEN devices but only two went off: One ´suspect´ held, hunt for man in black as boy, 8, is revealed to be one of AT LEAST three dead. 141 more are injured
I look to the Brit press to get the facts right well ahead of the diseased, leftist political hacks who call themselves “journalists” here.
It appears this bombing was designed not to kill, but to maim. It succeeded at doing just that.
My question is: Why does New York go on high alert for terror that occurred in Boston? Isn’t it sort of, I don’t know, self-centered of them to think they would be a target, possibly taking away emergency help from Boston? Boston is the place dealing with terror, not NY.
And they want to take away our guns??
NY has always been considered the No. 1 target.
One of the first things done was to shut down cell phone service in the area. So were the devices hooked up to cell phone devices? If so, maybe the plan was to set oof the devices afterwards to take out the EMT’s, etc.
Keep in mind that during the 2008 RNC in St Paul, MN, some punks were assembling remote operated incendiary devices to kill or maim police officers. The punks, known as the “RNC Eight” were praised by none other than Minnecraponus mayor RT Rybak.
I’ve gotta say, I think the Boston PD was just great on this.
I think Mark Fuhrman said it best tonight on Hannity..anyone can make a bomb in their house by buying supplies at Home Depot..what is the Govt going to do, prevent people from going to the store to buy nails? Wait, you know somewhere the Feinstein’s of the world are already thinking of a new law preventing people from buying nails from Home Depot
Thank You for this information
Tyrannies use fear to manipulate the “masses”.
Why has NY been considered the Number 1 target? Because it has a the highest population of Jews on the planet? Financial center?
No bonus for you, goatphuquer !
I bet shutting down the cell service quickly is what kept the others from being detonated.
The system almost worked! If only those two other “devices”
wouldn’t have exploded.
No, we'll need to get rid of those silly ol' 4th and 5th Amendments. If it saves one life... /sarc
New York has a target on their back. Not only that, but with the surrounding communities having been involved to a fifty mile radius, just about everyone at least knowing a family who hoped for two weeks, going up to the station finally to retrieve the car, etc. they are post traumatic.
Of course they’re self centered; but there’s that too.
We don’t know how many of these were avoided during the last 12 years.
Seems it wasn’t that cell phone service was shut down, it was that it promptly overloaded by so many calls. Concentrate that many people in that small a space and give them all a reason to start making calls at once, yeah the system collapses. Hysterical callers may have saved lives by swamping the cell towers.
cell phone service was never shut down.
Of course, it is self centered. But NYC thinks EVERYTHING is about them.
Is there an anti-terrorism bill, which takes our freedoms and liberties, that has been stalled in the Congress as of late and needed some persuasion to get out of some committee?
Cell phone devices can be used to remotely detonate bombs. I suppose that by shutting down cell phone service, it would also make it difficult for the suspects to coordinate any further activities. But what this teaches them is that in the future, have a fall back plan in case the cell phones get shut off.
“I dont know, self-centered of them to think they would be a target”
Uh no, just prudent. NY is always a target for terrorists, they need to react quickly when something happens just in case.
Well, it was, just once at least, and in a big way.
On Boston Marathon day, I often have walked around Boston around the time of this year’s explosions. I did not today, because I have given up my Red Sox (Sunday games, holidays) season ticket.
ideal result: bombers turn out to be islamists who entered with explosives thru porous southern border, and found with a weapons caches traceable to fast & furious
There are tons of plans available on the internet if you know where to look (would suggest TOR if you get into some of those sites). Two of the most popular include The Poor Man's James Bond and The Anarchists Cookbook. Those are actually mild compared to some I've seen that have the instructions for some pretty nasty explosives (surprisingly easy to make). The Norwegan shooter's manifesto also has some pretty detailed instructions included.
If the perp is discovered to be a member of the “Saudi Tea Party” this whole thing will gradually go away in order to preserve the illusion of owebama invincibility.
With Obama and Napalitano’s prints on them.
I would not have much more faith in the accuracy of the British tabloid media than in the domestic mainstream media. Sometimes they'll cover a story the MSM media here won't, but if they are both covering it I don't see any British tabloid accuracy advantage.
Well, jihad bomb design has always been heavy on the maiming. Ball bearings, glass, other stuff mixed in (like arsenic or manure). There is an element of sadism that is wholly lacking in the non-islamic scene.
Everybody keeps saying this but is it really true? I mean, do we know that for sure or was there just so many calls being made that it clogged the networks?
Is there somebody in a control room somewhere on standby to do this?
In the chaos of the moment is there someone on the ground communicating back to this guy? Who gives the order?
Because it’s an incredibly huge dense city that is the center of just about every aspect of western civilization?
Only two out of seven went off? If the Commies did it, there’ll be price to pay for the comrades responsible! Trial in front of the Central Committee of Workers and Peasants.
Maybe because the cell phone service went down, is the reason the rest of the bombs didn’t go off. That is, if they were being set off by cell phone.
Only two out of seven went off. We can probably rule out al-Qaeda. They are pros. If they had planted seven, all seven would have gone off.
This was my first thought.
Cellphones, the triggers for the bomb, don’t work very well in a metal trash can. It’s a Faraday cage.
This is what I had on another thread...
Dont you know... already the dems in congress are proposing two new laws that will ABSOLUTELY keep us safe. The thus stated laws are:
1. A bomb can only have a maximum of one stick of dynamite (no one needs more than that for a terrorist act.)
2. There is to be established a national registry and background checks for ALL bomb makers - only presanctioned terrorist need apply. (and NY state will confiscate all of your bombs if you mellowed out with ANY medicinal substance - excluding, of course, pot.)
Thats all for now....
They don't prevent you, but they already do investigate. The son of a friend of ours received a visit from the bomb squad after having spent "too much time wandering around" at a big-box hardware store. He had looked in the hardware aisle and purchased PVC pipe.
There’s instruction videos for mixing this stuff. We have some of them up on the main site, not as videos but as a limited few frames. can’t make anything from them. But the visitor list is very interesting :).
Or perhaps it signifies the 7th voyage of Sinbad. A bad sinner could have symbolism for someone who opposes same sex marriage.
Riddle me this!
Because New York City is the capitol of the nation for everything except federal.
Lose NYC and you lose all television networks. Hollywood may make the movies but without NYC they will not be shown.
Maybe the suspect(s) lived in NYC?
7! That means no connection to the number of albums released with Roman numerals by the band CHICAGO.
That turned out NOT to be true.
There almost certainly weren't 7 bombs - the Daily Mail was just parroting a Wall Street Journal report that turned out to be probably untrue.
"Counterterrorism officials found five additional suspect devices around the Boston area on Monday, but a law-enforcement official later said closer examinations led them to doubt that they were bombs. An earlier version of this article cited people briefed on the investigation saying officials believed they were undetonated explosive devices."
