Thread Name: BS: Explosions at Boston Marathon
Subject: RE: BS: Explosions at Boston Marathon
A friend of mine went to Boston for this race. His first one. He wanted to wait until he turned 60 so he might have a chance as a newbie in that age group. Hope he's all right.

At any rate, from Massachusetts Governor Patrick's press conference:

Reporter: "Is this another false flag attack staged to take our civil liberties?"

Patrick: "No. Next question."

Thank God we've learned to question the government's role in these incidents first.

The Boston Globe reported a drill by the bomb squad today. "Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities." Here's a screen capture of the Globe's tweet activity. Big crowd in Boston, confusion, so why are the police running a bomb drill? In London they were running a bomb exercise during the 7/7 bombings, and on 9/11 they were running drills simulating hijacked planes flying into the towers. "Terrorist activity" during government drills is becoming a tired old M.O.

We'll never know the full truth about this bombing, of course, but at least we've learned to suspect the government FIRST in these situations.
