Federal authorities late Monday removed several bags from an apartment in a nearby suburb. Police investigating the Boston Marathon bombing have also issued an alert for a rental van and for a hooded man who left the area before the blasts.

Boston was battered but vigilant on Tuesday as an army of federal agents raced to find out who attacked the city’s historic marathon, leaving three dead and more than 100 injured amid a war zone of shattered glass and bomb debris on Patriots Day.

No comments from any of the neighbors regarding who was living in the apartment?

From the article:

*****************************************EXCERPT*********************************************

Police have issued an alert for a rental van that may have tried to gain access to the finish line area and for a man in dark clothing and a hood seen leaving the scene shortly before the blast, reported NBC. Surveillance video shows a hooded figure carrying two backpacks at about that time.

Maybe the saddest part of this is finding out the MA has changed Patriots Day into just another 3 day weekend. Yesterday was NOT Patriots Day. That will always be April 19th.

WTC bombing 1993 - used rented van
OKC bombing 1995 - used rented truck
9/11 attacks 2001 - attackers used rented cars to get to airports.
Boston bombings 2013 - rented van(?)

Congress MUST ban rental vehicles!!!

Now, I am sure, the true culprit for 911 and the Boston Bomb will come forward to take responsibility:

THE IMMIGRATION AND NATURALIZATION SERVICE.

The I.N.S. actually stands for Institute of NATIONAL SUICIDE, as we see today.

Most of the people up there wouldn’t recognize a “patriot” if he showed up at one of their cheese and wine tasting parties.

If they did, however, they’d either arrest him or have him shot on the spot.

I PRAY the perp(s) in that terror attack turn out to be some of the 66,000 Saudi “students” to whom the obama criminal enterprise has allowed preferred entry and travel privileges.

If that DOES prove to be the case, obozo’s PC friends and supporters up there got a serious and deadly lesson in the beauty of DIVERSITY and TOLERANCE.

Perhaps they will then grasp that WE ARE AT WAR with a deadly foe.

Patriots Day has been on a Monday since 1969.

As the rev. Wright, obama’s chief minister of racial hatred so eloquently expressed after 911:

“Whoooeeee!!! ‘Dem chickens done be a’comin’ home to roost, ha, ha, ha!!!”

I guess so. I don't live back there, and they don't celebrate it in CA. Next I suppose Independence Day will be switched to the closest Monday.

Nearly 30 people lost at least one leg in this blast. Gun control would’ve done NOTHING to stop this.
