Photo surfaces of 'The Craft' mobile communications van at Boston marathon

A detailed, hi-res photo of more "The Craft" operatives and what appears to be their mobile communications van has just surfaced. "The Craft" is a group of private military operatives who have been revealed through a fast-growing number of photos published by Natural News and Info Wars.

The mainstream media is engaged in a total blackout and refuses to run any photos of "The Craft" operatives. This story is quickly becoming the biggest media cover-up in history.

They're obviously not

trying to hide their presence. On the contrary, they're wearing uniforms. I don't find it odd that the city of Boston and/or the Boston Athletic Association would have hired them for extra security. But I think it's odd that the msm wouldn't have noted that, given what happened.

And related to these guys or not, I also find it odd that journalists aren't doing more to question the loudspeaker announcement in which someone told the spectators something to the effect of, to not be alarmed about the (unusual) law enforcement presence, as it was only a drill. Who made that announcement? And why?

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.

These guys are actually National Guard.

They are the New York Army National Guard's 24th Civil Support Team.

"A Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Team (WMD-CST or CST) advises civilian responders in the event of a suspected weapon of mass destruction attack. CSTs are federally funded National Guard units established under Presidential Decision Directive 39. There are 57 fulltime teams: one in every U.S. state, Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico, Guam and the US Virgin Islands, and an additional team each in California, Florida and New York."

Here are more photos of them: http://imgur.com/a/YrTOK

Here is a photo of some of them wearing vests identifying them as CST: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2013/apr/15/boston-m...

The vehicles they are using are identical to those used by other Army National Guard CSTs as well, as can be seen here: http://www.oregon.gov/omd/pages/pressrelease/2010/02-22-10pr...

As for their use of non-standard uniforms instead of the Army Combat Uniform, here is an earlier picture from 2011 of a member of the 24th CST wearing khaki and black: http://www.bnl.gov/newsroom/news.php?a=22521

As to why two of them were seen wearing Craft apparel, Craft International provides training programs to police and military, and it is likely that the whole team received training from Craft and received the apparel from them.

Their presence does lend credence to the idea that authorities may have had prior intelligence of a possible bombing, or were in fact holding a drill that day.

Some of the personnel are

Some of the personnel are apparently from a CST, but the photographs don't support your contention that ALL of them are.

It is very unlikely...

that some of the men wearing the same exact uniforms are CST and some aren't.

It is also very unlikely that men wearing the CST uniform, as well as using and congregating around the CST vehicles are not CST.

Look again. Not all of the

Look again. Not all of the uniforms are EXACTLY the same. I'll agree that the uniforms have a similar style, but no further.

All the men in question can be seen around the CST vehicles...

next to other men wearing the khaki and black, what evidence do you have that some of them are and some of them are not in fact CST?

Here is another photo of CSTs:http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2013/apr/15/boston-marathon-explosions-pictures#/?picture=407248955&index=16

Notice that their uniforms are not all identical, the slight differences between their non-standard uniforms does not mean they are not CSTs.

It's an interesting admission

It's an interesting admission from you that their uniforms are not all identical. Maybe, military units allows more variance in their dress code today while on deployment than in the past.

These uniforms are not standard...

as can be seen by the men, who are clearly identified by the big CST on their back here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2013/apr/15/boston-m...

Being a special unit that needs to somewhat blend in with the police units they are advising(black and khaki being less conspicuous than camouflage), they are probably granted greater leeway, their commander probably only cares that they are the same color and look similar enough to each other, because they are not wearing the standard uniforms issued by the Army.

Finally someone is talking

Finally someone is talking some sense around here. The one thing I question is if there was a tip. I'm not sure I buy into the ff. the narrative is too sloppy.

I feel the same way.

I am not entirely convinced that this is a false flag, this may be incompetence or a sting gone bad.

While it is still possible that this may be a false flag, in the sense that the feds set the bombers up, I think the presence of theses NYANG CST men suggests that they had some prior intelligence or they were part of a drill.

Yes.

Yes.

They are definitely Craft ...

... no question about it. The guy in the far right of that photo has his jacket open and he has a Craft logo on the upper left chest of his shirt. Probably can't see it in that photo because photo is to small, but there is another shot of him running and you can see it. Plus, another guy has a Craft logo on a baseball cap. All wearing the same uniform, which is Craft, and that means they were Craft guys working for Craft at the Boston Marathon.

Why, is the question.

Perhaps they had a tip.

Perhaps they had a tip.

Wait... I thought the famous two by-standing cucumbers with earpieces and caps had been identified as National Guards, not Craft crew?

Asking genuinely.

On of those guys was wearing a craft hat apparently though?

Craft provides training programs to police and military...

so it is likely the guy wearing the hat either got it while training at Craft or just bought it because he was a Chris Kyle fan.

Here is another photo, showing more men in the same uniforms, but with vests identifying them as CST.

Dunno. I'm only confused.

Dunno. I'm only confused.

Reportedly, some outlets talked about them as National Guards (official narrative), while here and there, they're instead believed to be mercenaries/Craft crew.

So, I'm still confused (well, because, funny, the MSM doesn't always seem super reliable to me...)

Wish we could see the license plate.

Then we'd know who to ask about the "drill" and some other questions.

Whelp, that's another photo of them not helping.

Among a sea of frenzied activity while they mill about.

If men are good, you don't need government; if men are evil or ambivalent, you don't dare have one.

hmm

TheCraft.com says they help all types of law enforcment in all kinds of ways... they have medic training, snipers, SWAT, close quarters combat training, etc...

Now, i'm not saying that they did or didn't do anything cause i have no clue, but.. why would they be there with a marked van, marked clothes etc if there weren't really supposed to be there to help? yes i understand that they could have been there to "help" (pull off the scam), etc... but with all the cameras today... that just seems a little... dumb. but... anything is possible. lol

but really, the crazy thing is, if they didn't do it and they were there to help, along with others and their bomb sniffing dogs, that they all failed to prevent anything terribad from happening...

I use Blue Wave, but don't expect one of THEIR silly taglines.

When you're hired as

When you're hired as mercenaries, you better have medical training. ;) Why hire trained killers for a marathon? Was the management expecting close quarter combat, the need of a SWAT team, snipers, medical training etc? Why hire and deploy mercenaries in a potentially unsafe environment unless there was a direct threat of combat? If the latter, why wasn't the event cancelled? Why not deploy more local police and EMT personnel if there was only a suspicion of some vague threat? Maybe, a group higher up the chain-of-command wanted mercenaries involved in a drill, perhaps, as a cover? Something clearly went wrong at the 2013 Boston marathon with a bunch of mercenaries involved, didn't it? In hindsight, did Craft International do their job well or poorly. You'll likely never know, but the carnage remains, doesn't it?

SteveMT's picture

In addition, that photo is not an officially released FBI pic.

FBI: Stop looking at it immediately! They want us to "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain." (Ha!) Thanks for posting.

These operatives seem to be coming out of the woodwork.

How fortuitous that they and their batmobiles were both in the neighborhood when this occurred. What another coincidence! Before long, we will learn that the number of these operatives will actually be greater than all the runners in the race. The media blackout about these people and their toys will only serve to expose this coverup even faster.

Yes, just like Elohim City

Yes, just like Elohim City where members of the FBI probably outnumbered the suspects.

Good Summary Of Known Events Thus Far

A very clear and coherent analysis of a tragedy which is CLEARLY being covered-up by both authorities in Massachusetts, the FBI, and the mass media. I'll ask this question again. Why were mercenaries at the Boston marathon? Mercenaries aren't hired for defensive operations. Mercenaries are hired for offensive actions, e.g. assassinations. Regardless of the level of involvement of Craft International in this tragedy, they definitely are persons of interest and the FBI is just fanning the flames of the false-flag hypothesis by ignoring the evidence. I, too, agree that the analysis done thus far by interested parties on the InterNet has been quite good despite the obvious limitations.
