I don't know if it means anything but I remember a few days after 911 there was a large SWAT team in Boston and they raided a hotel in the downtown area. I don't remember the outcome. The Feds & news media can't lie about this event. Those are horrific injuries. Those bombs were made to kill and maim.

Hope that is not related, but it is weird timing.

More likely an unrelated fire.

Or blow one to get all the cameras pointed that way, then blow the other so there’s no denying what happened, ala 911.

Yes they are! We may seem divided, but attack one of us and you’ve attacked us all.

Well put.

Isn't it some kind of holiday in Israel today? Independence day or Memorial Day or something?

My guess: lone wolf nut job. The bombs appear poorly made — only two out of four went off. They were smokey, so not high explosive. Probably a pipe bomb, perhaps with nails and or liquid fuel. There will be video of the person planting the devices — they would have been found in a pre-event sweep. The bomber will caught within a day or two.

I think just the opposite. Since only 2 devices went off over how many?....seems like an amateur.....

Cell phone transmission towers in the area being shut down could have stopped more detonations and from other instances, members of small terrorist cells are not the sharpest planners.

At least 4 bombs so far seems too many for one lone nut.

there were so many cameras going at any given time. You also have professional photographer companies which take constant video as runners come in.

I saw 4 medics carrying a guy in a wheelchair, whose lower legs were blown-off, with just bones and blood thru the bandages and tourniquets. Fox hasn’t run that film clip again. Shep was gagging describing it.

yeah..but 10 seconds? How many ‘responders’ will respond in 10 seconds?

Yeah but...that holds only if you assume that it was supposed to go off 10 seconds later. Could have been triggered by accident.

One of the videos posted here shows the explosion coming from the right and a runner crumpling to the ground as if he was hit with shrapnel or something.

That guy that fell looked very old. The sonic blast may have knocked him a little and his legs just buckled.

Absolutely not, leave the picture up! If you are too big of a wimp to look at it, then look at something else. We need to get mad and stay mad until people who do this kind of thing are dealt with.

The JFK library could be just an accident, but it’s a high profile location in a time window with the other explosions (multiple...if there are more than one, the possibility of there being more is heightened).

As other posters have said, if they were using cell phones, they might not have been able to get through to the other devices to set them off.

Could be, but then again I doubt they'd have intended too much time between all the bombs they'd planned to set off. Looks like they'd have had plans to get them all off close together.

All is speculation now.
