Media syas "It's too early to speculate...." Then they end the sentence with speculation.

Prayers for all those injured and the families of those killed.

12 dead



BOSTON — Two explosions shattered the euphoria of the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday, sending authorities out on the course to carry off the injured while the stragglers in the 26.2-mile trek from Hopkinton were rerouted away from the smoking site of the blasts.

A federal law-enforcement source told The Post there are at least 12 dead and twice as many injured. Fox News reported that Massachusetts General Hospital was treating 10 people with amputated limbs and all operating rooms were on hold.

Law-enforcement sources said at least the first explosion occurred in the lobby of the Fairmont Hotel.

"There were two bombs that exploded near the finish line in today's Boston Marathon," The Boston Marathon's official Facebook page read. "We are working with law enforcement to understand what exactly has happened."

“This changes everything [in New York],’’ one source told The Post. “Everyone’s on high alert. Our marathon was canceled in November. Who knows if that changed someone’s plans?’’

Well bombs exploded in Boston Mass at the marathon and I saw it live on T.V. as I am not walking still. Both bombs went off
during the race I heard 1 bomb was disarmed at the race and there was a fire in JFK Library in Boston.

Liberals want the rest of the world to think and be as twisted as they are.

It's just not so. EVERY tragedy comes with this identical speculation from the left. Every time it's false.

No one dares call them on it. What the right needs is a compilation of left wing smears in the aftermath of these tragedies to throw in their face. From the Colorado theater, Newtown, the VA tech shooter etc.. They were ALL lefties. Every dang one of them!!!

This early into it, I'm willing to believe it's not a left wing or right wing attack on civilians.

Politics gets involved when these are the people the liberals defend.
Be it on the battlefield, Gitmo, etc. It's reality.

No wonder they like living in fantasy land.

BB, you are a retired professional.

What's your take on this? Domestic or international?

Or was it terrorism at all?

Thanks for asking my opinion. Tempting as it is to spout off all the theories I'm mulling over (and some very limited info I've received from some who are not retired), without additional facts, I'm unwilling to offer much in the way of opinions. I will say that if it was a genuine al Qaida 9/11 type plot, they would likely have used far more powerful explosives in a denser crowd to inflict maximum casualties.

As for "terrorism," I doubt any two TnDeer members could agree on what the word even means these days. There can be no doubt that it struck terror into the hearts of many.

Edited to add: To answer your question more directly, I just don't know. I'm also disdainful of anyone not in an official capacity at the heart of this investigation who claims they do know.

Pressure cookers – possibly activated remotely by a cellphone – are believed to have been used to make the crude bombs that sent deadly shrapnel hurling into a crowd of onlookers and competitors at Monday’s Boston Marathon, experts told Fox News.

Doctors treating some of the 176 injured victims believe the explosives were packed with deadly shrapnel, including pellets, nails and sharp metallic objects – with some patients having “40 or more” such fragments embedded in their bodies.

“Many of them have severe wounds mostly in the lower part of their body – wounds related to the blast effect of the bomb, as well as small metallic fragments that entered their bodies – pellets, shrapnel, nails – that these bombs had,” George Velnahos, chief of trauma surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital, said Tuesday.

“I wouldn't exclude completely the possibility that some of these fragments are environmental, but my opinion is that most of them were in the bomb,” Velnahos said.

“They are numerous,” he added. “There are people who have 10, 20, 30 or 40 of them in their body or more.”

The FBI has not commented on the nature of the two devices used in the blasts, but sources close to the investigation say shredded pieces of pressure cookers were found at the blast sites, indicating the bombs were made from kitchen devices.

A source close to the investigation told Fox News that the style of the device used closely resembles that commonly seen in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Another source confirmed that "pressure cookers were used in both devices."

The source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said a pressure cooker was attached to a wooden board in at least one of the blasts. The pressure cooker acted as the timer, the source said, and attached to the board was a bottle filled with nails, ball bearings and BB’s. That device was placed inside a black nylon backpack and then dumped in a garbage can, according to the source.

A third source said that the FBI is scanning cellphone tower records for the "moment of detonation." If the moment of detonation is positively identified, the corresponding cellphone number can be traced.

Pressure cookers have been used to make bombs in other high-profile cases, including the May 2010 thwarted attack in Times Square. The Department of Homeland Security warned of their potential use in terrorist attacks as early as 2004.

"I don't think the use of pressure cookers points to any particular group or individual who may be responsible," Bill Daly, a former FBI investigator, told FoxNews.com.

Jeff Lanza, another retired FBI agent, said the Boston case "bears striking similarities" to the bombings at the 1996 summer Olympic Games in Atlanta, in which Eric Robert Rudolph planted three pipe bombs with “lots of shrapnel,” killing two and injuring 111 people.

Lanza also said the smoke color seen at an explosion – which in the Boston case was white – will help indicate the type of bomb used in the blasts.

I would think, and that's a feat in itself I know, that as many cameras that are supposed to be active in these big cities, especially on a marathon route I would also think, that they would have video of the placement of these devices. Again, this is just my thinking.

I never would have thought about pressure cookers ?

(CNN) -- The deadly bombs that turned the Boston Marathon into gruesome devastation were apparently placed inside pressure cookers hidden in backpacks, a federal law enforcement source told CNN.

The blasts were likely detonated by timers -- not by cell phones, a law enforcement official said.

The U.S. government has warned federal agencies in the past that pressure cookers -- air-tight pots used to quickly cook or preserve foods -- have been turned into bombs in parts of the world. A Department of Homeland Security memo called it "a technique commonly taught in Afghan terrorist training camps."

"Typically, these bombs are made by placing TNT or other explosives in a pressure cooker and attaching a blasting cap at the top of the pressure cooker," the memo said.

Yep, would've never guessed pressure cooker.
Let alone cause the magnitude of carnage we've seen in the photos.
