Police and federal agents appealed to the public Tuesday for amateur video and photos that might yield clues to the Boston Marathon bombing and CBS News learned that one of the explosive devices appears to have been placed in a metal pressure cooker packed with nails and ball bearings.
The details on the explosives emerged as the chief FBI agent in Boston vowed "we will go to the ends of the Earth" to find those responsible.
A law enforcement source told CBS News senior investigative producer Pat Milton that one of the explosive devices appears to have been placed in a metal pressure cooker (a metal kitchen pot with a locked-down top) which had been placed in a black nylon bag or backpack. Investigators also found pieces of an electronic circuit board possibly indicating a timer was used in the detonation of the bomb.

From the article:
“They can give me a cavity search right now and I’d be perfectly happy,” said Daniel Wood, a video producer from New York City who was waiting for a train.
Probably hoping they would. I’ll bet king hussein would love one as well.

"The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men."

Much of what this man claims has been proven false. One example is the JFK Library fire.

The circuit boards makes sense because the Pressure Cooker would act as a Faraday Cage.

Richard Barrett, the former U.N. coordinator for an al Qaeda and Taliban monitoring team who has also worked for British intelligence, said the relatively small size of the devices in Boston and the timing of the blasts suggest a domestic attack rather than an al Qaeda-inspired one.
"This happened on Patriots' Day it is also the day Americans are supposed to have their taxes in and Boston is quite a symbolic city," said Barrett, now senior director at the Qatar International Academy for Security Studies.
Utter BS! UN Protecting Obozo.

I’m blaming Iranians. Just had an Oscar winning movie ARGO that humiliated them and of course the Battle of Marathon in 490 BC where the Persians were defeated is where the race gets its name.
