(CNN) -- Blasts near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed two people and injured 22 others Monday, Boston police said.
The marathon itself, on its Facebook page, referred to the blasts as bombs. Authorities did not say immediately what caused the explosions.
Massachusetts General Hospital said it was treating 19 injured people; Tufts Medical Center reported that some injured were to be treated there as well.

The explosions sent smoke billowing into the air at Copley Square, turning a site of celebration into a mess of destruction.
Crowds had gathered in the area to watch the runners.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Lenox Hotel was evacuated, the Boston Globe reported, as authorities looked into possible security concerns.

Officials in other cities, including New York, tightened security as as result.
Mike Baingon, who works at the Atlantic Fish Company in Boston, said an explosion took place in front of the restaurant and that he was right by the front door at the time.

The explosions occurred at about 2:45 p.m., more than two hours after the first of the race's nearly 27,000 runners had crossed the finish line, CNN Producer Matt Frucci reported.

The race was halted as was subway service into the area.
Troops from the Massachusetts National Guard were assisting police as well.

If it is Muslim, it will be classed as terrorism. If it is a Non-Muslim it will be a misguided attack by a depressed individual who needed psychological help.

(salam)
Of course, especially as in certain cultures, psychological disorders are still ignored. But the media won't portray that side of the story, instead it will have everyone believe the perpetrator is an evil, malicious mastermind which proves all Muslims are a threat to national security.

From what i,ve read nothing confirmed so take it as a rumor however they might have a Saudi suspect injured in hospital. I wouldn,t be surprised if it was them.

Are we sure it's a "suspect" and not just "arab who happened to be in the crowd at the time?"


I'd be surprised if this was the work of some Islamic terrorist cell. It doesn't really feel like there's any real political target here and whether it is supposed to be some symbolic protest of the race is not that likely. What this looks like so far is something done for the sake of attention.


There was a third blast I read that happened later at the John F Kennedy Library, no injured or dead there, but it is most likely related. But yeah, I have strong doubts that this is the work of some Muslim political group. And if it is, they aren't very creative. :donno:

First I thought that North Koreans began their opperations... But, now they say that they have a suspect in hand, so it seems a ZioSalafi strike, possibly having an agenda in mind... and of course targeting Muslim communities under such pretexts every six months. It is kind of refreshing the 'terror scare' or 'evil-Muslims' existance in western communities.. for public reminder. Zionist-Saudis/Salafis will never stop creating havoc and chaos around the globe and benefting from such tactics, from Pakistan to Syria, from Iraq to Europe to the Americas.

It has been confirmed by MSNBC news that Boston officials have NO suspects in custody.

There are NO suspects but the man is talking cooperatively with Boston people. He is a Saudi guy. What happened was when the bomb went off the guy started running, LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, and some white guy thought that was odd and tackled him (basically). The man said he was "acting suspicious" before the bomb and when he ran it made sense... CAUSE NOOO one runs from bombs. >< I really really really hope its not a muslim. North Korea I hope... LOL

Yeah, it would've been less obvious if he had just stood there admiring the scene!

Let the stupid and nonsense reasoning behind the accusations begin!

I feel sad at the loss of innocent lives. That said, I have a hunch that some people are going to pay dearly for this, culprits or not.

Just check the Face Book profiles of all the High School students within five miles radius.

Based on our most recent violent crime history, it got to be one of those copycats.

What needs to be fixed is how these high school kids get their supplies over Internet to commit such crimes.

They did say on the news here that the bombs were found to not be sophisticated. They were made out of very readily available materials almost any yokel can get. So it could have been done by literally anyone with an internet connection, some free time and a few hundred bucks to spare.

All that crazy reaction and chaos compared to Iraqs looooool (Sorry, but it just really is funny when you think about it and don't get me wrong I do feel sorry for them *takes hat off* -_- ) they are The human beings after all, and others like those of Iraq are just living beings - who gives about whose behind all their bombings killings.

I think with this one, it will be a while, probably a week or more, before the government names potential suspects.
They are not going to make the same mistake as Bush did after 9/11 with coming out a few days after and all the media singing in chorus that it was Al Qaeda before a proper investigation could even possibly begin. This hastiness made many, even bigoted Americans, question the official story.

The Obama Administration is more sophisticated and learned from some of the mistakes of Bush in 'hastily' trying to pin the attack on a group.

IMO, there are only three possibilities at this point

1) It is a domestic group that did it to protest either taxes (April 15 is the day when Federal taxes are due in the U.S.), gun control (The new gun laws that are being proposed), or another domestic issue

2) It is a deranged individual (muslim or non muslim), lone wolf attack.

3) It is a false flag / psyops that will be pinned on a muslim group. The scary part about this one is that I don't think they will use Al Qaeda this time because they are working together with them in Syria and they don't want to give them any negative PR at this point. It will either be a group linked to Assad, Hezb, or Iran. This will probably result in some sort of U.S. attack on Iran which will begin WWIII.


Based on the evidence I have seen so far, I think #1 is the most likely.

Well, to be fair, the Mid East is a basket case full of crazies where bombings are a daily occurrence.
We run a bit of a tighter ship over here, so we freak out when some crazy seeps in.
