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.

Fox News needs to find themselves a more intelligent source.

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.

I want a ban on pressure cookers and I want Air Force One to fly me there on taxpayer dollars to lobby for this injustice. We deserve a vote!
