Maybe the fire was set to distract security from the Marathon bombers. That’s how it’s done in the movies.

Maybe they should ban movies for being terrorist training films.

Almost certainly...I believe it started just before the bombs went off...

Of course that was no coincidence. But they assume everyone out here is a leftist idiot.

There was a breaking news report of the fire at 1:49 (But I didn't look where it was from (Time Zone)...I thank that's an hour?? before the bombs...but that might put many available personnel at THAT scene. And they would be searching all over the place.

From Monk: There are no coincidences in a murder case.

Create a diversion. Cause confusion and split resources between two places far enough apart as to make leveraging same impossible.

One thing to understand (not matter which party holds what office) - you may very well be told the truth - but if so - the fact that it IS the truth will have no bearing on what you are being told.

No they don't. Probably afraid that the time line will reflect a coordinated attack which blows the lone wolf theory out of the water.

If that was first...then there would be cops scurrying to keep the intersections clear...and they’d all be off their immediate task....Tell us what routes were used for the Fire Trucks. That’s the path of the perp....

My guess is that three guys are walking in opposite directions...and meet at 3:05 in a parking lot. Someone picks them up (they have abandoned a rental car) and they drive west towards Albany NY.

“which is several miles from the marathon finish.”

The JFK Library is nowhere near the bombings. It is not in downtown Boston at all, but several miles to the south, on the water in Dorchester, part of Greater Boston.

Possibly "wake turbulence" - that sort of thing happens a lot around the time of know terrorist attacks. ++++++++++++ On November 12, 2001, the Airbus A300-600 airliner operating the flight crashed into the Belle Harbor neighborhood of Queens, a borough of New York City, shortly after takeoff. All 260 people on board the flight were killed, along with five people on the ground. It is the second-deadliest aviation accident involving an Airbus A300, after Iran Air Flight 655, and the second-deadliest to occur on U.S. soil, after American Airlines Flight 191. ....fears of another terrorist attack. However, terrorism was officially ruled out as the cause by the National Transportation Safety Board, which instead attributed the disaster to the first officer's overuse of rudder controls in response to wake turbulence

Didn't you know the terrorist are so in tune with the news the terrorist picked up on a news story, the fire in the library, then planned and carried out the terrorist attack.

The terrorist attack was “Spontaneous”.

The JFK Library is not far from South Boston—the “real Boston,” where you can hear the Boston accent being spoken, where if you ask directions, you might be told to drive through a “rotary” (traffic circle), and where you can pick up a good Italian sandwich.

More hardcore evidence that the press and government cannot tell the truth about anything without passing it through the “obama filter”.

I have that accent, haha. What else would you call a rotary?? A roundabout? I don’t think so! Sounds too British, and we expelled them years ago! Italian sandwiches around here are called subs. I think I might get one for lunch!

"a fire broke out near a new entrance at the library

Sidewalks usually don't spontaneously combust, particularly with billowing clouds of black smoke. I would guess that the "authorities" have pretty good clues about the actual bomb materials and detonation devices, and are not publicizing them.

This allows the left wing nut case media to publish volumes of speculation about "right-wing lone wolves". That "right-wing lone wolf" sure is smart. He simultaneously set off powerful al Qaeda devices on the street, a fire bomb at the JFK library, and sent a ricin laced letter to the Senate. Must be some Superman Lone Wolf.

Italian sandwiches around here are called subs.

Over in Maine, I've seen them on menus referred to simply as Italians. In California, they're also called subs, although Lomeli's, one of my favorite Italian restaurants, dubs them torpedoes.

Does that mean the employees won’t be paid for the time of the closing?
