PS. Yes this could definitely be a false flag, but lets be careful not to lose our humanity in defense of our liberty. Lives were lost today.

It's Chris Dorner's apartment.

FBI: "Oh crap, what do we do now?"

Sorry, probably in bad taste, but it's the first thing I thought of.

Devil's Advocate: Regarding the warning heard on loud speakers.

Giving the benefit of the doubt, it is entirely possible that the police received a bomb threat and were searching for the bombs and suspects all along but had no tangible evidence to shut down the marathon.

Perhaps when people started to notice their presence they made the announcements in order to keep the crowd from panicking. Seems plausible to me.

That said... it could also be another false flag operation. Considering the fact that it happened on Patriots Day, and on the day that Obama signs dozens of executive orders for gun control, and in the direct vicinity of Newtown victims families makes me wonder if it was another elaborate mass murder by the Establishment.

More EO's today? Do you have a source for that?

My mistake on the Executive Orders...

... I inadvertently clicked on a video link embedded on the same page I read in regard to the marathon attack. I thought it was also a broadcast from earlier today.

Were they targeting the Newtown witnesses...

... ala Seal Team 6?

Just a question that came to mind when I read that families were in the stands.

Its either false flag or blow back...

either way, I blame the government! I'm sorry for the victims, the innocents, who always seem to pay with their lives.

The ptb do not care.

Just bringing it to attention. I have not done any research yet, other than if it was posted to DP

So here's the deal with Facebook......

So here's the deal with Facebook: You can create a page and re-title it at anytime if you have under 200 likes. It does not show the time of the re-title. In all honesty, this page, as well as the Sandy Hook one, was probably created so that somebody could get their 15 minutes of fame for "discovering" a page created before an event.

Edit: My mistake, it's 100 likes, not 200. For those of you who like sources for information:

Thank you.

This Boston thing started stinking to be before the Sandy Hook Flag.

The timing about this is amazing and the MSM 'reporting' is TOTAL PROPAGANDA promoting DHS. Put that in with the overt efforts to support a dollar/economy they sabotaged decades ago than are now playing out tells me 'they' need a diversion from the truth.

Thanks for your reply, and understanding that I saw this and posted it, but not that it was the sensational smoking gun.

"Stop politicizing this tragedy! People died!"

One thing I've noticed in the comments on various other news sites: Anyone who mentions possible government involvement, or just the government using the tragedy to pass new laws? They're told that they're insensitive, horrible for politicizing a tragedy, and basically scum of the earth. Sure, people died and were injured, and that's terrible.

I don't understand why they get so angry at people who question official stories or at least try to explore a theory to find out the truth. Somehow, when people die in an event like this, we're just supposed to feel shocked and victimized, or angry at whoever may have done it. It's "tasteless" to try and investigate on our own, though. First it's "People just died! How can you be thinking about anything else except the horror and sadness?" then that becomes "It's TOO SOON. That was a tragedy, and you're disrespecting the dead by thinking as you do!" which finally becomes "That happened years ago. We have the official story. It was a horrible tragedy, but why are you investigating? It doesn't matter now." We're seeing the second stage with Sandy Hook, and the third stage with 9/11.

Sure, my prayers are with the people who were hurt and the families of the dead, but that doesn't mean that I shouldn't also look into all possibilities regardless of how offensive they are to think about. Maybe it was a single crazy person. Maybe it was a terrorist organization. Maybe it was our own government. We don't know yet, but it shouldn't be thought of as wrong if we want to explore everything and question official stories.

All of that said, I'm still waiting for Obama to announce new laws to prevent this from ever happening again. Just as Sandy Hook was related to restricting the 2nd Amendment, I think the Boston Marathon bombing will be used to restrict the 4th. Crowds at any major public event will need to be searched and questioned "for our safety". It may not be exactly as I say, but watch for SOMETHING similar.

Its all about timing...

If you want people to listen, you'll talk when they don't have their hands over their ears. Its just not wise and takes the emphasis off any facts you are presenting.

The problem with that

Some people never take their hands off of their ears. They only hear and see what they wish to, regardless of how much time has passed. How many people still get flak for questioning 9/11 for example?

The time to start questioning things is immediately. I don't know if this attack was a false flag or not. The information is not there yet. However, I am not going to discount the possibility, even if the idea is uncomfortable.

Five More Undetonated Bombs Found In Boston

Five More Undetonated Bombs Found In Boston; Death Toll Rises To 3

UPDATE: *AT LEAST 3 PEOPLE HAVE DIED IN MARATHON BLASTS: BOSTON POLICE

In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon explosions, the WSJ is reporting that counterterrorism officials have found what they believe to be five additional, undetonated explosive devices around the Boston area. The devices - which are in addition to the two that exploded near the finish line of the marathon - were discovered over the course of a frantic inspection of suspicious packages. Each had been rendered inoperative or was in the process of being rendered inoperative.

Bump!

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."

http://www.informationclearinghouse.info/article34627.htm?ut...

(Showing of tweets!)

Bullshit

If you look at the Twitter timeline that particular tweet was sent after the original explosions went off. It was a tweet to warn people of them disposing of a device.

It completely discredits informationclearinghouse and anyone else spreading that falsehood.

informationclearinghouse once had credibility?

re that local15 article

comments section has most people calling 'false flag'

Jim Stone screen captured the 5:43pm article

Transcript from screen capture:
"University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs dogs at start and finish lines.
“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill an there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”
Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
“There was just smoke, another explosion went off,” Stevenson said. “We all started running. There were people crying.”
Stevenson said there was no question in his mind that this was an intentional act."

I don't know what Stevenson means by 'intential act'. Intentional by whom? I'm leaning toward him meaning guvmint because if a terrorist attack it would obviously be intentional.

If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

Enough...

I've had enough of the false flag stuff...

1) It comes off as insensitive, as my whole family was in grave danger today.

2) It makes us seem crazy, and takes credibility from our other talking points.

3) We would be better off using this as a plea to stop the Capulet and Montague shit with the Mid East. Leave them alone, no one wins.

Don't you want to know who commited the crime?

I think a lot of people (like folks here) have been conditioned to never trust the published narrative. When tragedy strikes, I think it's healthy that at least a part of society looks for inconsistencies in the main narrative and that they don't immediately strike government off the suspect list. The TRUTH is false flag attacks have occured in our nation's history, as well as in other countries.

I hope your family is ok, my thoughts have been with the victims and their loved ones since I heard about the incident. Also, I hope that all those responsible for the bombing are caught and processed, be they insiders, outsiders, or somewhere in between.

I am very...

...glad your family is safe! Were you close to the explosions?

No...

My I had two sisters there waiting for my mom to finish, one was at the second explosion. Thank you for the kind words.

It's disturbing enough

...to just contemplate from afar. To have loved ones there in the midst of the trauma -- wow -- I can only imagine how horrendous that must have been for them and for you. I have a sister-in-law who runs in these types of events, so it kind of strikes a little close to home with thoughts of 'what if'.

Prayers for you guys tonight, that you'll be able to comfort each other and those around you that have witnessed and been mauled by evil today.

What's wrong with actually wanting to understand what happened??

Don't be so vindictive. We are all just trying to make sense of who, what and why! That's it. Just because you are sensitive, doesn't mean we all have to shut up to soothe your sensitivity.

There's nothing wrong with brainstorming possibilities! That means we are THINKING!

No offense.

Love Liberty, be Vigilant

"Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2 Corinthians 3:17)

Faith in God will prevail all things!

"False Flag"

Using the term false flag when no one has actually been blamed by authorities is jumping the gun.

I'm open to all sorts of ideas and different thoughts on the matter (and other matters), but if you want anybody other than the small circle of people already in the liberty movement, than you need to wait and show better discretion in your timing.

If you want to just get pats on the back from the people already in agreement with you, say whatever you want, whenever you want. If you want to have some minute credibility, use your head.

Further, I'm a realist, I'm not overly sensitive to the issue, but I'm IN THE LIBERTY MOVEMENT and I think its too soon. Shit like this causes people on the OUTSIDE ( you know...the ones we need to bring in...)to ignore us and write us off as crazy.
