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

    From the direction of the blasts it looked like a statement. I don't think the runners were the target but rather the spectators, though the bomber probably would have taken a few runners as a "bonus". The person who planted would have to know that the concussive force of the blast would be absorbed by the crowd so I am pretty sure they were the primary target.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    So? Centennial Olympic Park Bombing happened on July 27th.

    Glad to see you and Jerry taking advantage of the tragedy to remind us how we should all hate Obama, real class act there.

    Maybe this was the work of a new group, one not on any watch list?

    Joggers are moving targets - innocent people lining the streets are sitting ducks - terrorists love sitting ducks.
