    I have no idea of a bomb sniffer dogs effectiveness or whether they searched along the route where the bombs were placed.

    I've also heard that more undetonated bombs were found? but at the moment news reports appear to contradict eachother concrete facts appear not to have been established.

    Forensic analysis of the bombs will likely give answers should this be accurate information.

    Did someone mention gunpowder on this thread earlier?
    Canine bomb detectors do not work continuously. After a short while, their nose tires out, so it is possible the bombs were brought in after the dogs had been used

    I know I saw two people who said they had friends and family in the area in this thread. Just saw this link in an article at CNN.com.

    Google Person Finder: Boston Marathon Explosions

    Google's Crisis Response team created a "Person Finder" tool to help marathon runners, their families and friends, and spectactors keep track of each other and quickly share information about people they know, Google spokeswoman Susan Cadrecha said. The web address is Google Person Finder: Boston Marathon Explosions.

    Anyone with an internet connection and access to a drugstore and lowes can make one. It absolutely does not need particular knowledge to make the bang and build the bomb....

    I do find it interesting they rather quickly shut down cell service throughout Boston to curb against more explosions in case they were cell detonated.

    I thought the joggers had already crossed the finish line by the time the bombs went off? If the culprit was targeting the marathon would he be targeting the joggers?

    I'll agree that it looks like some kind of extremist(s) did this.

    Until the trial(s) over with, that's as far as I'm going to go.

    Add to that dogs are not infallible even when fresh. It is possible to hide materials from a dog. Dogs can indicate there "may" be something there. They cannot verify that there is nothing there.

    Yep. We never hear of those on the left using bombs.
