Their source is an intelligent official. Are you trying to to your bullshit again or are you being serious with me?

you are wrong here, the victims can't get any more dead or limbless


no one has to look, let's put this out there, so whoever is responsible, we all know what they did, we can not pretend it away

I heard 4 hours in. If that was average for a Boston participant, I'd be running in it.

The marathon themselves apparently have reported the blasts as "bombs" on their Facebook page.

I am spoilering this, but New York Times linked to this video from the street, several blocks away, of the second explosion.

I would think there is a fairly constant amount of runners crossing the finish line over a long period of time

you saw this person say this?

or someone else said an intelligent official said this

we have all kinds of bad reporting these days, even from AP where they all follow on one bad first report.


ok, I am on ABC News channel now, and they just said AP says two more devices found near scene. So this (should ) be credible.


it seems to me those two bombs, were (well ) planned,
two more near the site fits the profile

will- nilly packages all over the place make less sense.

Packages all over the place are probably more indicative of people abandoning their things (bags, etc).

What a terrible story. Hopefully there will be some light shed on it over the next days, until then it'll be wild speculation.

I don't know where or what SkyNews is (UK source, I believe), but they've reported a third blast at the JFK Library.
