Subject: BS: Explosions at Boston Marathon
From: beardedbruce
Date: 15 Apr 13 - 03:22 PM

Several people have been hurt in two explosions near the Boston Marathon finish line, CBS Boston reports.

There were two booms heard from near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel.

WBZ-TV says the medical tent near the end of the marathon course has been filled with many people who have been "gravely injured."

It happened around 2:45 p.m. outside Marathon Sports on Boylston Street, according to WBZ-TV's Lis Hughes, who was near the scene covering the marathon.

There were two "incredibly powerful explosions just seconds apart," according to Hughes.

Race officials locked down the hotel because of the report.

The sound of two booms, which sounded like thunder, had come a short time earlier.

Peter Sagal, the host of Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me had just crossed the finish line when the explosions happened. He was just interviewed on NPR. No news they can offer yet, just the report that it happened. Twitter is probably the best source, trending #bostonmarathon.

"Two words".    Premature to say that.   We'll see. Plenty of possibilities.

At this point, speculation helps nobody.

Early for speculation, but there's an information vacuum, so that's all we have. It's tax day, it's Patriot's Day, and once upon a time, there was a "Boston Tea Party". I think it's domestic, and the level of angry rhetoric fuels the crazies.

It's good it wasn't worse, but they're saying an 8 year old kid was killed, and anybody killed is bad enough.

Baghdad, Iraq: terrorism.
Columbine High School, Colorado: terrorism.

ANY violent act is an act of terrorism. Some are larger in scale than others. The difference between a drive-by shooting and a car bomb exploding in a busy shopping district is only one of size.

There is no logical argument that this was anything but an act of terrorism...

We'll just have to let the FBI figure it out and...

... I trust they will...

The last bomb, which didn't go off, may very well produce enough evidence to nail the person of people who did this...

Bottom line??? We all need to chill and let the smart people get the the evil ones...

Bombs planted by the terrorists in Northern Ireland were an almost daily occurence while I was there in the 70's, and many of them caused multiple indiscriminate deaths.
The terrorists concerned received a large amount of funding via NORAID and Boston was one of their foremost financial contributors.
Dont get me wrong - I deplore this latest outrage, but the irony does not escape me or many of my comrades from that troubled time.
