I think Obama will be reaching out to the bomber for advice. Maybe him and Ayers could head the Dem Campaign committee for 2014

Suspect has been IDd, in hospital

New York Post identifies him as a "Saudi national".

I once bought a pretty Chinese teapot in Chinatown, then left on a bench at a subway station. It was never found, but I suspect the package must have been blowed up good!

Weren’t they just trying to add Saudi to the list of countries which don’t need to go through passport control upon entering the country?

My, my, yes hussein was... Was this how "they" got him into the country? Nothing to see, move along, just another of those weird obama coinky-dinks.

From the NY Post - The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today’s blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.

At least he received some justice. Soon he'll be off to Club Gitmo.

Just spoke with my brother in Florida....

He said this afternoon the internet was acting funny as it did before the McVeigh bombing.....in fact his business client talking with him had noted it as well.

Did any body else notice a slow down or difference in the internet this afternoon before this happened...maybe up to a couple hours?

Boston Fire Dept. spokesperson now saying on FOX that JFK Library was an explosion.

That definitely adds more possibilities. Very disappointed to hear that no unexploded devices have been found, after reports that two had been found.

Hope the first report on the devices proves to be correct.

I just want to say how impressed I am with all the volunteers going back in to help.

Also, to the woman who's son is in a bar after running the marathon, I am so happy for you that you have heard from him and that he is ok. I pray for the safety of others who have not been heard from yet.

Two comments:

(1) It is amazing to see the number of people moving toward the site of the explosion to help.

(2) The immediate organization of the National Guard and Police in clearing obstacles and providing aid is heartening. These are good people.
