    I live in MA. On my local news stations, they are saying that the incident was unrelated, but they are treating it as if it is related. THAT is the part that is frustrating.

    You know what I'm saying? Why would they treat it as if it is related when they know (or SAY they know) that it isn't? It doesn't make any sense.

    How do you think that the government failed?

    How could the government have prevented this?

    Fill us and the U.S. Government in.

    Not going to happen.

    That is a radical idea.

    Re: Explosions reported near finish line at Boston Marathon

    My Condolences to any of our members that had people there. I hate when innocent people are being attacked and hurt. Or Worse. There is no doubt this a terrorist attack. Multiple bombs would classify this as such. Now whether homegrown or foreign is the question. Still there is no one jumping up to take credit. Although my thinking would be they would not do so until after a couple of days. As we expand out our investigative resources.

    Moreover I am not to happy with the media coverage over this event. But I am going to get off into that here. Way to much disinformation was put out there.

    Updated!

    At least three dead, 130 injured after bombs explode at Boston Marathon



    At least 130 people are injured and three dead after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon Monday afternoon. The injuries include dismemberment, witnesses said, and local hospitals say they are treating shrapnel wounds, open fractures and limb injuries. An eight-year-old boy is one of the three known dead, multiple news outlets reported, and several of the injured are also children.

    Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis stressed that the police had no suspect in custody yet. "I'm not prepared to say we are at ease at this time," Davis said, when asked if the area was safe. Authorities found and dismantled five more more explosive devices in the area, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    Boston Medical Center took in 20 patients, including two children, most of whom are being treated for "lower leg injuries," a spokeswoman said. A spokeswoman for Tufts Medical Center said the hospital is treating nine patients for conditions such as shrapnel wounds, ruptured ear drums, and "serious orthopedic and neuromuscular trauma to the lower legs." At least one patient was as young as three years old.

    NBC News, citing anonymous law enforcement sources, reported Monday that a "small homemade bomb" is believed to be responsible for the explosion. The FAA created a no-fly zone around the area. Cell phone service was shut down in the area, the AP reported, to prevent any remote detonations. Family and friends of marathon runners or spectators can call 617-635-4500 for information on their loved ones.

    You posted quite a bit of information.

    Are you 100 % sure that what you posted is 100 % accurate?

    If not, why did you post it?

    Russia offers help with probe into Boston bombings......

    MOSCOW (AP) — Russian President Vladimir Putin has offered his country's assistance in investigating bombings in Boston that killed 3 and injured more than 140 people.

    Putin said in a condolences note published on the Kremlin's website Tuesday that the international community should come together to fight terrorism.

    Putin said Russia "would be ready to provide assistance" to U.S. authorities with the probe into the bombings at the Boston marathon.

    Obama's national security adviser Tom Donilon met with Putin on Monday and presented a letter from Obama in an effort to improve relations, which have nosedived in recent months.

    Why of Course .....I generally go with Local, AP and Reuters. That which all other news sources follow. For such events. Did you have a problem with it? I also had live feed with CNN's people on the ground and in their Newsroom. So I would say I am and what I have put up was pretty accurate.

    Considering I was in on the thread from yesterday with all that I had put in on it.....I doubt one could call it Monday morning QBing.

    Although did you think I was talking about 100% accuracy with humans? Did you think there was some sort of perfection I was speaking about.

    What was your confusion over?

    This makes no sense, so few killed. If anyone is tied to a cause or organization they need to up their skills. This is equivlant to throwing a rock through the twin towers. If this is their idea of terrorism we have nothing to fear. I did get a chuckle out of CNN instantly questioning the security in place. Why is it some folks believe we need a billion cops for every city block?
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    Terrorism isn't just about death. There were hundreds injured as well as children. Even the survivors will live with this for the rest of their lives. All who were there will, even if they were not injured. There is no doubt it will affect people lives in Boston for the rest of their lives. Police who were on the scene, first responders, you name it.

    We dont know who and why yet, but one thing that needs to be done is border enforcement. With a million illegal border crossings each year, I imagine it would be easy for an enemy to get in.
