As I said before, now it's all about making sure that they actually made the devices, and where they got the materials and info to do it, if they did. I really don't think a complete novice could be quite as successful first time out, as they were. Complete beginners quite often blow themselves up just making homemade explosives. So either these guys were just lucky, or they did a lot of research, which would leave a trail, or someone else is involved.

Again, about the celebrations, a person's perspective largely depends which side of the fence they're sat on.

If you consider the enemy to be the authorities, and law enforcers, then you'll have a completely different take to someone who trusts them.

The logic doesn't follow. Some terrorists use twitter to discuss attacks therefore any suspect who doesn't have incriminating tweets is innocent, is not sound logic.

That's probably the situation we've reached, a lot of people who use Facebook and twitter to tell the world EXACTLY what they're up to, resist the concept that there are still some people who don't.

When you have armed Navy SEALS on walkies, all over the area BEFORE the bombs went off, there was a reason for that and something was already known by someone, before the horror began. There were scores of people wearing black backpacks, including many of those SEALS from what I have seen in photos.

Something is definitely NOT RIGHT with this picture!


Are you serious? :roll:

About? The kid or the SEALS? Go look on the net, their photos are everywhere! As far as the terrorist kid, yea, go back and read what else I said. I quickly changed my mind as details are emerging!

Watch 60 Minutes tonight. They are doing a whole segment on bomb detecting dogs. The dogs did a sweep at the marathon because it is a huge outdoor sporting event and requires tons of security. The terrorists waited out the dogs and then set down their backpacks.

Wish I could watch tv. Cable box is broken, has been for months, and the cable company says they're backed up at least a month more with over 1000 backorders for new boxes. WTF kind of cable company is this??? And not my account so there is nothing T can do about it. Maybe I can find it streaming on the net somewhere.

We have a digital antenna - no cable. It cost $10 and we get a good 8-10 channels.

This is not what i was looking for http://www.justin.tv/rctvcirebon#/w/5458835040/2

i really don't think a huge show like 60 minutes is going to be on there. i am on their own website. no live broadcast that i can locate.

From the CBC facebook page... :nervous:

http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2013 ... l?cmp=fbtl

As the investigation into the Boston bombing continues, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said the two suspects had such a large cache of weapons that they were probably planning other attacks. http://cbc.sh/k0RYuOP



The stockpile was "as dangerous as it gets in urban policing," Davis said. "We have reason to believe, based upon the evidence that was found at that scene -- the explosions, the explosive ordnance that was unexploded and the firepower that they had -- that they were going to attack other individuals," he told CBS.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev remains unable to speak with a gunshot wound to the throat. His older brother Tamerlan was killed in a gun battle Friday with police.

Investigators have not offered a motive for the marathon attack. No evidence has emerged to link Tsarnaev to militant groups in Russia's Caucasus.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was tracing the suspects' weapons to try to determine how they were obtained. Neither of the brothers had permission to carry a gun.
