The running coach of Mobile University (college) currently runs lots of marathons, and he was alerted to more security/monitoring presence than what he has ever seen. Initially, the ‘authorities’ tried to poo poo the idea that there was increase security presence. The regime lies, then layers more lies on the initial lies. We watched the clinton regime do it, the Bush admin do, and now we’re witnessing the most blatant use of layering of lies ever. I believe the running coach, since the rooftop ‘observers’ were caught in photos yet denied by ‘the authorities’.
He could be onto something I am just pointing out as other locals can attest to that Marathon Day in Boston has an increase in security, FBI, National Guard, State Police etc. ever since 2001. In fact I think I remember in 2002 the finish line was virtually in lock-down needing some kind of pass to get to the finish area.
