Multiple casualties reported after two explosions at Boston Marathon

Published April 15, 2013FoxNews.com

DEVELOPING: Multiple casualties are reported after at least two explosions rocked the area near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, according to the Boston Herald.

Witnesses reportedly heard booms that sounded like two claps of thunder near the finish line inside the Fairmount Copley Plaza Hotel.

The explosions occurred just before 3 p.m. Video of the scene showed a number of emergency crews in the area tending to victims and blood on the ground near the finish line.

"I saw two explosions. The first one was beyond the finish line. I heard a loud bang and I saw smoke rising," Boston Herald reporter Chris Cassidy, who was running in the marathon, told the newspaper. "I kept running and I heard behind me a loud bang. It looked like it was in a trash can or something...There are people who have been hit with debris, people with bloody foreheads.

A photographer with Fox affiliate WFXT reported seeing a number of victims with lost limbs.

Competitors and race organizers were crying as they fled the chaos. Bloody spectators were being carried to the medical tent that had been set up to care for fatigued runners.

"There are a lot of people down," said one man, whose bib No. 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter of North Carolina. He was not injured, but marathon workers were carrying one woman, who did not appear to be a runner, to the medical area as blood gushed from her leg. A Boston police officer was wheeled from the course with a leg injury that was bleeding.

About three hours after the winners crossed the line, there was a loud explosion on the north side of Boylston Street, just before the photo bridge that marks the finish line. Another thunderous explosion could be heard a few seconds later.

Runner Laura McLean of Toronto said she heard two explosions outside the medical tent.

"There are people who are really, really bloody," McLean said. "They were pulling them into the medical tent."

Cherie Falgoust was waiting for her husband, who was running the race. "I was expecting my husband any minute," she said. "I don't know what this building is ... it just blew. Just a big bomb, a loud boom, and then glass everywhere. Something hit my head. I don't know what it was. I just ducked."

Not looking like a gas blast.
Looks more like an IED.

Looking like at least one blast
was in a trashcan or similar.

Based on eyewitness accounts and what seems
to be a stripped pole in the photo below:

Confirmed that at least one explosive device
was discovered at the scene - unexploded.

Also reports (only a single source) that two or more
devices have been recovered elsewhere in the city.

JFK library confirmed as another device.
But there's still uncertainty about this.
5:35pmEST: Confirmed Not Related

Quote:
Details are continuing to emerge following the explosions that were set off
by small homemade bombs near the finish line at the Boston Marathon.

With the rapid reports surfacing, there are conflicting reports surrounding a
fire at JFK Library.
Some reports indicate that the fire at the library was a
result of an explosion, but there has since been information surfacing that
the incident is not related to the bombings.

Official and media memes:

Quote:
"Stay off the Streets."
"Don't congregate in groups."

"Simultaneous bombs is a signature of al-Qaida."

Damn Al-Qaida.

On the other hand:
Quote:
"Low-grade bombs is a signature of domestic terrorists."

Damn Domestic Terrorists!

Tellingly missing is an early claim of responsibility.

What's not being said is that this may be
a lone operator - with an as yet unknown
agenda and MO.

Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national
in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital

Last Updated: 4:58 PM, April 15, 2013
Posted: 4:28 PM, April 15, 2013

Investigators have a suspect a Saudi Arabian national in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.

Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.

It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.

The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.

A suspect is just that: a suspect.

People from all over the world are in Boston
for the marathon. Let's see if this holds up.

Casualties are horrific -
despite the low blast power:

Again, 19 patients at Mass General; six patients are critical,
at least four with leg amputations. Six patients in surgery

This Boston Globe video is similar, but
subtly different from existing videos of the first blast.

In previous video you can see
the person who shot this video.

It's first airing as I type on CNN.
It gives a sense of how it felt to be there.

That "suspect" story
didn't last very long:


Quote:
Boston Marathon Suspect At Large No Suspect in Custody

No suspect has been arrested in relation to the Boston Marathon bombings today which killed several and wounded dozens, despite reports to the contrary by the media at large and most egregriously, the New York Post.

Previously today, the Post reported that a "Saudi national" was in police custody after being injured by the explosion. Those reports appear to be inaccurate.

From Talking Points Memo:

A spokesperson for the Boston Police Department said no suspects have been taken into custody yet after the bombing at the Boston Marathon.

"At this time, we haven't been notified of any arrests or anyone apprehended," the spokesperson said.

Quote:
(NaturalNews) Two bombs have rocked the streets of Boston and reportedly injured 22 marathon runners (two have reportedly died). It's too early to know the cause of these explosions, but you can rest assured both the state and federal government will try to use this tragic event to blame whatever convenient enemies are most advantageous for the government.

No one has yet stepped forward to claim responsibility for the bombs, and the fact that no firearms were used in the attack may indicate this was NOT part of a false flag effort by the government to try to blame gun owners. (But it's still way too early to tell...)

Here at Natural News, we are horrified at this loss of innocent life, and we are praying for the victims of this bombing as well as their families.

Bomb squad was running "controlled explosion" on the same day.
What's not yet being reported by the mainstream media is that a "controlled explosion" was under way on the same day as the marathon explosion.


As the Boston Globe tweeted today, "Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities."

Some people believe this explosion might have been part of the demolition of another bomb. It seems unlikely, however, that a bomb at the library, one mile away, could be so quickly located and rigged to be exploded by the bomb squad in less than one hour following the initial explosions at the marathon.

Bloomberg news is now saying, "This is very likely a terrorist attack."

The question is: Who are the terrorists? It's far too early to take an informed guess on all this. However, it is indisputable that the FBI is actively engaged in carrying out bomb plots in the United States, then halting them at the last minute to "catch the terrorists." This fact has been covered by the New York Times, among other publications.

Also read
FBI 'entrapment' tactics questioned in web of phony terror plots and paid informants.

Keep in mind I am in no way blaming the FBI for this. Most men and women who work with the FBI are upstanding citizens who would be appalled at such acts. But it is theoretically possible that one of the FBI's many "terror plots" went too far and turned into a live bomb instead of a dud followed by an arrest for "domestic terrorism."

For the record, the explosions seemed relatively small for a false flag, and most false flags target children in order to maximize the emotional leverage after the event. That these explosions did not target children is yet more evidence that it may not have been a false flag at all.

Either way, terrorism always works in the favor of the state. It makes presidents look presidential, and it gives the government an excuse to crack down on civil liberties all across the country.

Be wary of who ultimately gets blamed for this, especially if it's a veteran or patriot.
