    They were not. But they also have not been able to repeat in like, what 12 years? Just shows it as a statistical anomaly. Again, no endorsement of the act; just a statement of reality.

    The Saudi National has been cleared at this point.

    Its a horrible attack no matter who did it.. I think people just want answers because it is frightening so they can begin to process the information.

    Its hard to wait patiently for an investigation.. Blame human nature.

    Boston PD denied the Saudi national story a while ago. They said that they were talking to several people of interest, but the rumor of a Saudi national in custody was false. This has nothing to do with ****ing "PC". It's about accuracy.

Not a point to fret over or overreact on; but rather just a statement of reality.

    these cats didn't just wake up one morning, go to Wal-Mart, buy some black powder, build a bomb and go drop it off on the route of the Boston Marathon.

    There was a significant amount of thought put into this. If there hadn't been, there wouldn't have been so many casualites.

    Their bombs went off and casualties were produced. Do you think you could do that?

    It really sucks how people are bigging this up, accusing suspects based on their own prejudices.
    It's like a poker tell. Where the "wants" can often supercede the "facts" of a matter.

    Cow poop is fertilizer. Anhydrous ammonia is fertilizer.

    From what I heard, they questioned the guy along with a bunch of other people, and he/they were cleared.

    So he (whoever "he" is) doesn't have anything to do with it.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Certainly not something thrown together some morning. Yet just because it wasn't last minute does not mean that it was well thought out.
