Skip to comments.Boston Marathon contractors ID'd: MA National Guard WMD detection unit
Posted on 04/24/2013 8:10:01 AM PDT by patriotgal1787
One 2013 Boston Marathon runner, University of Mobile Cross Country Coach Ali Stevenson, told NBC affiliate Local 15 that he has never seen that level of security before. A veteran of other major marathons, he added Evidently, I dont believe they were just having a training exercise I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.
We reviewed our procedures and coordinated, but did not have an exercise that day, says LTC Meriwether. We coordinate and practice with the FBI and other agencies all the time she said. Asked if her CST unit had received any intelligence concerning a heightened risk of attack, she said no, but if they knew about something they probably wouldnt have told us.

They were running a drill.
There is no question precise enough that the Administration will not evade it.
We’ll have to dig up an internal source willing to give up the Kenyan moslem.
Don’t make something out of nothing.
This is a good debunking of kook conspiracy that’s out there.
The gov’ts are programmed to lie all the time these days.
This was pointed out before. Something about a drill. FWIW there has always been a security force for the Boston Marathon since 2001. Both at the gate and finish lines. Homeland security, FBI and state and local police are always in attendance. I haven’t watched the marathon live for about 5 years but the last time I was in the finish line area (my wife was running) the added security was quite noticable. If it was increased beyond what I saw back then something must have been up.
Comparing this event to other marathons is not a fair barometer. This is by far the biggest such event of them all...at least here in the US. The Boston Marathon is the one most runners focus on qualifying to run, and it gets more public interest (both locally and nationally) than the rest.
The police chief was having a press conference the day of the bombing. The first question was about a bomb drill. The second was about creating crisis to take out the Constitution. That was the end of the press conference.
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’.
We need to find these guys and get them FReepin!
what a coincidence. just like sandy hook. drill was 3 miles away on dame day.
I read the story that you linked and it says there was a bomb drill performed in 2008 at the Boston Marathon. This would be correct as I did notice lots of security and police dogs when I was in attendance in 2008.
It is a pattern that has been use many times.
These teams were established in the wake of 9/11 for the purpose of having Guard first responders who were trained for counter IED and WMD, especially in the CBERNE (chem/bio) arena. As Guardsmen, they can be employed under state control through orders from their Governor and State Adjutant General. They could also be called to Federal Service, but then you would have restriction on what law enforcement activities they could undertake.
I don’t know how they are structured and funded these days, but my guess is that they get lots of federal funding to pay for a much higher OPTEMPO (paid days) than normal Guardsmen and may even be full time. With that in place, they are going to look for events and circumstances that could use their assistance. They are not just going to sit around the armory waiting for the phone to ring.
Congress needs to begin impeachment hearings for head of DHS and FBI, although 0bama would probably replace them with even worse leftist radicals.
This is the statement that concerns me most:
“Asked if her CST unit had received any intelligence concerning a heightened risk of attack, she said no, but if they knew about something they probably wouldnt have told us.
Talk about a lack of coordination!
The enemy is you. They are trying to control you. Terrorism is the tool they use to control you.
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.
Did we get chatter from Russia?? and ignore it.
Something was certainly going on....because that's WHY people lie....to cover up. And orders come from the TOP and that means Obama.
Looks like any coverup in Obama's house is no big deal. But the stinkin' little Watergate breakin was an excuse to oust Nixon.
The two guys up in the article: did you say one was IDd as a Seal?
Yes, there were a bunch of guys people were pointing out that were all dressed the same and ear pieces and black back packs, just like him. They were Seals.
BTW, tyhe guys in the kaki pants, tan boots and black packs were from Craft Itn’l. They may have been training National Guardsmen, but the one wearing a seal symbol was not NG and the guy next to him wasn’t NG either.
And they were all looking around and UP...not at the ground....
Seems to me they were told to expect a sniper....
But in reality there were bombs placed on the ground....
I guess if they had all been told to look for a bomb in a backpack on the ground events would have turned out different.
Wow... I did see a lot of khakis.
Thank you very much. God Bless Them.
Because those in authority want it that way, and after sanitization, plausible deniability.
That is a very cryptic reply. While I am concerned about the current administration and its tactics, I am not sure how “they” want to control me.
Please provide some more details.
Turn off the Television. Look for books about how our Constitution is being killed.
I understand that power is what all politicians want, but how does the event promote that agenda?
Do you mean the door-to-door searches were done to condition people to 4th amendment violations?
What other tactics, particular to the Marathon, are you speaking of?
My goal isn’t argument, but better understanding of your point of view.
Nobody knows nothin’
This is how. 1st one is over an hour long, second is less than 40 minutes. Worth every second and scary as heck! Info.....THE MORE YOU KNOW ;)
Have you ever been so far even as decided to when go want to look use more like?
The 2nd video gave me chills, as Boston, MA was stated. Please watch, it is a MUST SO.
Well played, well played.
Why, a year after 9/11, were the Tsarnaev’s admitted as refugees? What logic was there in admitting Chechens? The asylum scam has to be shut down. Permanently.
Seems The Craft is a legit combat training & security services group started by lauded sniper Chris Kyle: http://www.thecraft.com/
Makes sense for them to use such an event as a training scenario. Mingle the crowd, practice coordination, look for threats (not expecting any), look up a lot (being a group born of snipers), ready to help when S did HTF.
Fast looking mundane and innocent to me.
Innocent to me, too. Craft is populated with ‘the good guys’. There are several NGs wearing the same ‘uniform’ but they have their guard tag on their backs/packs.
Here’s an article from that morning about the National guard presence. They are sneaky;
I noticed the VERY FAST presence of soldiers removing the broken barricades so as to get to the injured people.
The soldiers had just finished a memorial hike for their fallen comrades - walked the marathon route with 40(?) lb. ruck sacks - started at 4 am or something!
You and I agree. . . .but, remember, for the tin-foil crowd, the lack of evidence PROVES how good the cover-up is.
No evidence means a stunningly effective conspiracy, don’t cha’know.
