    Clearly a terrorist act. The question is whether it is homegrown or foreign:
    1- Patriots day- Boston always holds the marathon on patriots day. The OKC Bombing happened on Patriots day (it was April 19th that year)
    - Not to mention its "Tax Day" when the "government takes all our money"
    2- Jewish new year- Could lead a foreign terrorist to attack america for her support of Israel (not as likely imo).

    We were just saying that in my office. They have surveillance cameras in Boston, I am sure there will be some evidence that comes forth.

    Highly doubtful. They have real weapons they could launch and cause significantly more damage to our Allies/assests. Why start a war by killing 2 people at a marathon. Its rare to see organized governments conduct business this way. See my above post for logical culprits.

    Hopefully everyone in the JI family is OK.

    If they find these people who did this they should crucify them outside where the bombs went off.

    NYPost is saying 12 dead 50 injured. Awful.

    Are there bombs all over the city? This is right out of Die Hard 3.

    God bless the people in Boston. Stay safe.

    I know you did.

    It's accurate in comparison to a truck bomb or something intended to take down a building. This clearly looks like an IED meant to injure, maim, kill people in close proximity.

    This is so horrible.

    I used to work on Boylston St a couple blocks away from the finish line. I bet some of my former co-workers were watching the race. I know I would have been.

    Seems like a terrorist or anti-government people did this. Too much symbolism with Patriots Day.

    So sad for the victims and their families.

    My wife's friend ran the race, she runs it every year. My wife got a text from her. She is fine but was right there when it happened.

    Although possible, like a Timothy McVeigh type homegrown anti-government motive, I don't see it here. This was meant to kill people, not to shove something in the face of the government. If there were bombs at IRS offices or post offices I think we could suspect an anti-government nut but I'm not leaning that way. It could still certainly be a homegrown bomber. But IEDs with shrapnel are used by really twisted, religiously motivated or mentally unstable people.

    Geez..................


    Jason Sickles, Yahoo News:
    Two confirmed explosions while the race was happening, but there have been multiple reports of possible controlled explosions by police since then. Boston media reporting that an unknown number of unexploded devices have been discovered.

    wbz reported that a device was found under the grand stands, it was deactivated

    I think they found a bomb at the JFK Library as well.

    That would be f'ing sick if it were aimed at them...
