Three block perimeter to be established around 98 Spruce in Watertown, Mass
“They” have no problem doing it for other major events, such as the Super Bowl, Olympics, and such....had it been SOP for the Boston Marathon, would it have raised unusual concern beyond what one would normally expect?
live : they have a guy on the ground and not going near him
Savannah Guthrie on NBC (I know, I know - was channel surfing) interviewed a high school aquaintance of the suspect. She said only one thing negative about him came to her memory - otherwise he seemed nice and normal, and it was that once he posted a comment on his fb page complaining that women were allowed to teach him classes, saying that women should not be allowed to teach him. Others who knew him commented back like “What are you talking about, why are you saying these things?!” And he deleted the comments against women being allowed to teach him.
This definitely shows a Muslim mindset.
#Watertown: Suspect 2 is not in custody. Police had engaged a suspicious individual they believed could have been holding an IED.
Msnbc reporting that negotiations may be ongoing. Watching on TV.
NBC discussing “Islamic Jihad Union” right now.
Update, 10:37 a.m. EST: TheDCs Patrick Howley has put together all we currently know about Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the now-dead Boston Marathon bombing suspect.

He also described himself as a very religious Muslim. Read the full story here.>/P>
Update, 10:20 a.m. EST: The now-deceased bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, apparently posted a video touting an Al Qaeda-linked prophesy. You can watch it here.

Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here. Read the full AP story here.
Update, 9:14 a.m. EST: The Weekly Standard reports that wanted Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received a city scholarship from Boston in 2011, and attended the same prestigious secondary school as actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck.

It is possible but unconfirmed that someone impersonating Boston Marathon bombing Suspect 2″ Dzhokhar Tsarnaev created the account on Twitter one hour ago, tricking Boston police.
BREAKING: Cop in Watertown, Mass to NBC’s Kerry Sanders: “If you knew what was going on, you wouldn’t be standing here right now.” - @mhking
That was my first thought also and I know I am cranky today.
That’s about as ominous as it gets......
Tweets based on Mass. State Police dispatch say a 60ish man with a device holding a ‘dead man’s switch’ is on the ground. Who knows what’s true right now...
They can if it is not random. If they have reason to believe the guy is inside and is going to commit a crime they can bust in. It's called exigent circumstances. It has always been legal.
This is Islamic terrorism executed by Chechens.
MAJOR FAIL by OBAMA, HOLDER and BIG SIS.
The media will deflect and cover for them as directed.
world view: Islam
I'm sure if the killer had been a member of the Tea Party they wouldn't mention it either.../s
You’re oh so right (unfortunately)!
But, they’re very quick to blame the right-wing, GOP, etc., etc. Here’s a post I included on another thread earlier today:
From this thread: CNN Reminds Viewers You Can’t Blame Any Group For ‘Extremists’
Ill bet CNN would have sing quite a different tune if it turns out the terrorists had any connection to tea party, or Palin, or any of the right wing connection.
Absolutely! CNN and others came out of the gate blaming whites, conservatives, the GOP, etc. Here are just some I found on FR:

New York Times Columnist Nicholas Kristof Links Boston Explosion to GOP, Others Pile On
Posted on Monday, April 15, 2013 6:11:05 PM by chessplayer
Never let a tragedy go to waste. New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof on Monday quickly used the explosions in Boston for political gain, linking the Republican Party to the horrific act. At 4:10pm, Kristof tweeted, explosion is a reminder that ATF needs a director. Shame on Senate Republicans for blocking apptment.
Sharptons Radio Producer Tweets Speculation That Anti-Gov Group Behind Boston Marathon Bombings
04/15/2013 6:14:14 PM PDT · by chessplayer · 26 replies
At 3:38 p.m. Eastern, Huffington Post blogger and Al Sharpton radio producer Nida Khan speculated on Twitter that an anti-government group may be responsible for the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. We dont know anything yet of course, but it is tax day & my first thought was all these anti-gov groups, but who knows, tweeted Khan, who immediately received a lot of blowback on Twitter for politicizing the tragedy. But rather than back down, Khan defended her speculation in subsequent tweets
CNN, Esquire blame the right wing extremists for Boston Marathon bombing

Esquires Charles P. Pierce wrote in an online post on the magazines website that we should not jump to conclusions and blame foreign terrorists, then blames it on right-wing domestic terrorists. He stated remember that this is the official Patriots Day holiday in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord, and that the actual date (April 19) was of some significance to, among other people, Tim McVeigh, because he fancied himself a waterer of the tree of liberty and the like.

Chris Matthews: Did Boston Bombing Have Anything To Do With Tax Day?
By Noel Sheppard | April 15, 2013 | 18:46
As NewsBusters reported earlier, MSNBCs Chris Matthews seems hell-bent on trying to blame the Boston Marathon bombing on a domestic terrorist, preferrably a conservative one.
After saying shortly into his Hardball program, Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right, Matthews later asked his guests if Tax Day had something to do with the event since it doesnt mean a whole lot to the Arab world or Islamic world or the, certainly not to al Qaeda (video follows with transcript):
Axelrod: Obama thinks Boston bombings could be related to tax day
Weekly Standard ^
Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 7:24:03 AM by Windy City Conservative
In explaining why President Obama didnt call the Boston bombings a terrorist attack, former adviser David Axelrod said, Im sure what was going through the presidents mind is we really dont know who did this it was tax day:
The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11, Axelrod said of the phrase terrorist attack.
You use those words and it means something very specific in peoples mind. And Im sure what was going through the presidents mind is we really dont know who did this it was tax day. Was it someone who was proyou know, you just dont know. And so I think his attitude is, lets not put any inference into this, lets just make clear that were going to get the people responsible.
Lets just let the Left keep talking and hoping Boston will go away, because it wont

The hysterical screeching has already started. The Left is drawn to blame a terrorist attack on American soil on conservatives like a moth is drawn to a flame. Theyre psychopaths who only care about moving their destructive agenda forward. Liberals will say anything; they cant do otherwise. Theyre not bound by any restrictions of common human decency because they have none.
Despicable cancers such as Chris Matthews, Michael Moore and lunatic Cynthia McKinney have already started accusing conservatives of this ugly attack. Let them keep talking.
Either the Boston Police or the media are lying about whether...

Hoyer: Republican Sequester Caused the Boston Marathon Deaths
Fox News Channel (no link) | 4/16/13
Posted on Tuesday, April 16, 2013 10:52:43 AM by pabianice
Democrats, including Hoyer, today blamed the Boston Marathon bombings on the Republicans. According to them, the Republican Sequester so damaged our intelligence community that it caused the Marathon bombers to get away with it.
Took then just 24 hours to blame conservatives for the lives and limbs lost. I am no fan of the Democrats, but this lowers the level of their loathsomeness to a new bottom.

Let’s hope the Senators and Congressfelons debating about our immigration policies are paying attention to what these Chechen Muslime immigrants are doing. BTW I saw that neither is a US citizen, and that both are registered to vote (probably DemocRAT, though I didn’t see info on party registration).
