Tom Brokaw: "The speculation is that the FBI is close to making the case. They probably have enough to arrest him right now, probably enough to prosecute him, but you always want to have enough to convict him as well. There are still some holes in this case".

The local Boston Fox station’s streaming video said that they’re closing the courthouse for the day.

The Brigham hospital was where the Saudi suspect was being treated, held after the bombings.

Thank you. Did they say if the Court House was still being swept, or is the bomb threat over?

Ever hear the term "fog of war"? It is a real thing. This is not a slickly produced TV show for entertainment. I think a lot of folks have the concept of reality confused with television.

Precisely - I've maid this point a few times. What drives a lot of conspiracy stuff, stupid statements like "there are no coincidences" are people's understanding of the world being driven completely by TV and film.

Sure, there may be one red herring in a TV crime drama, or there may be a dramatic twist at the end, but what you don't have that the real world has is an immense amount of inaccurate, meaningless "noise." CSI doesn't have botched lab tests, or preliminary tests for a poison that turn out to be wrong. Crime movies only have witnesses that lie - they don't have witnesses that were simply mistaken. They don't have time to include all those things and they don't "move the plot" along.

Only a handful of movies may escape this - something like Kurosawa's Rashomon, and other remakes based on that same plot premise.

Except I don’t watch TV shows. The only thing I watch is news and political blogs for the last 12 years.

It is no conspiracy that this administration is the most dishonest,incompetent and dangerous to the survival of this country we have ever known. Benghazi and Fast and Furious proves that. Now back to regular programming.

Thanks. Just read on the Boston news site that penelopespire linked that reporters are being allowed to move closer now, but only Fed employees are being allowed inside. If this isn’t a diversion, it sure has been weird.

54-46. I heard. Reid voted “no” which means he can bring it up for consideration later.

McCain voted Aye. Butt sucking jerkwad... Some of my first posts on FR were to express my dislike of McCain and his Quisling-esque liberalism.

It looks like we’re buttoning things up for today. The bomb scare at the courthouse was apparently given the all-clear. But, only federal employees of the court were allowed to come back inside. The large media pool was allowed to move closer to the courthouse in anticipation of the FBI’s scheduled 5PM EST briefing. Now there are reports that the briefing has been cancelled.

The Saudi student, former person of interest, is being released from the hospital today. The same hospital where there was a brief secuirty threat today too.

There are still conflicting reports as to whether an arrest was ever imminent today, or if the whole thing was a series of miscommunications.

Odd day altogether. I do think it quite possible that something is up still.
