Now CBS is saying police found a third bomb, but it has not exploded.

False flag so that it can be pinned on the Tea Party or similar. This could be Zero's "Reichstag fire".

Looking at the videos and images, It'll be a VERY hard sell to convince me this was anything accidental.

I'll also correct one thing I posted before. Just saw a different angle and the explosion near the finish line was the first. The second explosion was about a block and half or two blocks away from the finish line.

Just because of the nature of sound, the witness I heard earlier may have been closer to the 2nd blast, so he was further from the finish line. It was still no remotely close to a mile, though.

According to CBS, no reports as of yet if it were intentional or not.

I personally feel it was completely intentional.

From the picture of the actual blast I saw and the damage, limbs etc, this sounds like a high-level detonation and not a home made explosive

Two different explosions and a third "device" set off by authorities. I think it's safe to say this was an intentional attack.

Sadly, I am inclined to agree. I would rather it not be. The last thing we need now is more half-baked measures that do nothing to improve actual security. However, I expect it to be discovered soon that one or more individuals planned this.

Im sure they'll start arguing for background checks for joggers and the naming of the official ribbon color shortly.

This really is getting to me today. The wife and two of her friends are about 200 miles away at another marathon. They've finished and are safe, but of course can't get them on the phone. Not a great feeling.

My hopes and prayers to the survivors and their families.

Why are we special? Frankly if it was bombs I am surprised it hasn't happened more frequently. Either way it's a tragedy that no nation should have to deal with.

that is part of why America has fallen from the land of the free, to the home of the free-loaders.
