Supposedly they don't know where the name was misspelled, but obviously someone screwed up. Don't think he would have even bothered to misspell it on purpose, like that article earlier suggested. Now there's more info coming out suggesting even more errors on the part of FBI and CIA.

The street where it happened reopened today. I went to the site of the finish line bomb, the first one. Just seeing that and that sidewalk and what has been there was overwhelming. I went to the memorial in Copley Square, couldn't believe the number of flowers, running shoes, etc that people have left there.

The site of the finish line bomb had some flowers and a teddy bear, and someone left their marathon medal and number in the middle of it.

oh, yeah, absolutey

it's off-topic per se but i refuse to not say anything to a "goverment can't do anything right" person

-the electricfication of the Tenessee Valley
-Medicare
-Social Security
-much of the Public Works done during FDR's years
going to the Moon, probes sent to other planets, satilites measuring various conditions here on Earth and elsewhere through various spectral analysis
-OSHA

And do you know why at times programs are not up to 100% or at least 90-95% ......
often during times when the more Conservative Republicans (Reagan onward <contempory>) manage the pursestrings, etc...
... it's because they withhold decent funding or don't enforce certain laws so that various programs then don't work (as) well or things -like infrastructure- don't get repaired as soon as the should be, or conditions inspected as often as they should be.

Then they can (and have) pointed and say "oh, look how 'ineffective' X program is....let's get rid of it"!

I'm not saying there isn't infrequent to occasional waste,etc

But the above is true also

Oh Reddit...

Student wrongly tied to Boston bombings found dead

Quote:
A body pulled from the water off India Point Park in Rhode Island has been identified as the Brown University student mistakenly linked by amateur sleuths on a social media site to the Boston bombings.

The body of 22-year-old Sunil Tripathi was identified through dental records, Health Department spokeswoman Dara Chadwick said Thursday.

...

"The last eighteen hours have generated tremendous and painful attention -- on social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit, as well as from television media inquiries -- linking Sunil to the video stills released by the FBI yesterday afternoon," said Akhil Tripathi, Sunil's father, in a family statement last week, WPVI-TV reported.

"Unequivocally, we have known that neither individual suspected as responsible for the incident in Boston was Sunil," the statement said.

On Monday, Reddit general manager Erik Martin apologized for the "dangerous speculation" that "spiraled into very negative consequences for innocent parties."

That is tragic. Was he murdered or was it suicide?

ETA: duh, click on the link

I'm so glad they found him. It's been haunting me a little bit, the last few days, wondering what happened to him. Obviously, I wish her were still alive, but I'm glad his family can have a little closure now.

So I didn't hear this until today, but the reason they shot the MIT cop was just because they wanted a second gun to carjack someone with? These guys were even more disorganized than I thought.

Jihad Mom has visited the infowars site frequently, so it seems. Must have it bookmarked. She was also discussing jihad with Timmy, according to Russian wiretaps (maybe they have better intelligence gathering than we do). She complains that America didn't keep her sons safe, what incredible audacity. What a piece of work. She can't come here to claim her dead son's body because she'll be arrested on her outstanding shoplifting warrant.
