Why don’t we act smarter than the media is and just wait until the officials come out and give us the facts?

Gov DeVol just issued a statement “Our thoughts and prayers... blah blah blah”.

Politicans pray? And to whom or what?

Unrelated? So it’s just a coincidence in the midst of all this?

There was a fire in the JFK library a few minutes after the explosions at the marathon ... The fire was caused by a “mechanical failure.”

Thinking out loud here: If it were Islamoterrorism, the Muslims like to time these things on the date of some event in their history with the West— usually when they got their butts kicked. This was the case with both 911 and the Madrid train bombing. The only significant April 15 incident I can come up with just a little research is that today is the anniversary of the first Arab-Israeli battle in 1948 in which the Arabs were defeated. Others here might find other connections.

Not exactly, they prey.

So, coupe de val has issued a statement. Did he read the one from his maximum eminence and say I concour??

You should never ever assume a cellphone or any other wireless device will work in an emergency. Sorry, laws of physics plus dependence on shared infrastructure that will quickly be overloaded, if not put out of operation one way or another.

“But what if someone needs to call in an emergency?”

Yeah, tough choices. If you are in the area, though, there are lots of cops, and there are still some regular wired phones in use.

If Janet and company knew of a threat. This is going to get ugly really fast.

I noticed moments after the bombing a member of the National Guard ran to help the wounded.

This don't smell right.

"Why would they detonate EVIDENCE?"

My thought as well - but, fear that the bomb could yet be set off via remote control, cell phone, other means - they took it away to a safe place and somehow blew it up.

I would have liked to know if finger prints could have been lifted from it. Likely not, however.

Authorities ID'd a suspect in marathon (shorten)


The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital


A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.
