    Five More Explosive Devices Found in Boston

    In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon explosions, counterterrorism officials have found what they believe to be five additional, undetonated explosive devices around the Boston area, according to two people briefed on the rapidly-moving investigation.

    The devices — which are in addition to the two that exploded near the finish line of the marathon — were discovered over the course of a frantic inspection of suspicious packages, many of them abandoned as pedestrians, runners, and others scrambled away from crowded public streets. Each had been rendered inoperative or was in the process of being rendered inoperative, the officials said.

    But the officials also sounded a note of caution, saying they are moving quickly and each device they believe is a bomb has not been fully dissected or analyzed.....snip~

    Pretty shakey. Sounds like BS to me since no one else is reporting this. This rumor has been rebuked.

    5. Five additional incendiary devices found. Reported by: the Wall Street Journal, which initially said that counterterrorism officials had found five unexploded devices around the Boston area—separate from the two detonated bombs. The New York Times reported three unexploded devices, including one at the corner of St. James and Trinity Streets, and another outside the city in Newton. But the Journal walked back its report quickly and Newton police rebutted the bomb report. On Tuesday, Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick confirmed that "two and only two explosive devices were found yesterday," although many packages were investigated. "There were no unexploded explosive devices found." Both articles have since been updated.

    What about how selective they are? Kim Il Un is probably screaming threats at the top of his lungs right now but we won't hear anything as the media can't multitask very well. Not saying that is a bad thing but just saying.

    I don't think that's selectness for political gain, the thing with North Korea. I just don't think the capability is of concern in the immediate moment. There is some proliferation that needs to happen before that threat becomes an imminent concern. The bombs in Boston is fresh, people are paniced, and turning to their TV to tell them what to do. If the networks don't give the lemmings what they want, they will change the channel. So, the networks give them what they want, 'arresting a dark skinned suspect', so they could get their ratings. I watch the network news these days, purely for the entertainment value akin to a bad realty show. I'm waiting for Geraldo Rivera to jump a shark in his leather jacket. Maybe that will save the country.

    Holy crap the Daily Show is completely roasting the dog**** out of CNN for their horrible jumping the gun reporting on this. A much deserved roasting mind you.

    I'm just not inclined to knee-jerk blame "the media." These are folks doing their best to feed the insatiable beast of insta-info.

    Re: Officials: Arrest 'imminent' in Boston bombing case

    In my entire life, I have never seen such a crapfest of BS being shoveled as verifiable fact as I saw on CNN's coverage of the Boston bombing. Those people were basically reading the AP and WSJ, and reporting everything they read there as golden without going to the named authorities they were told to check with before reporting anything.

    Now the bomber(s) know there is a picture of him floating around, so it's time to put on a disguise and hit the road. What a gigantic cluster****, and they have nobody but themselves to blame. They knew the individuals authorized to validate information; they probably just couldn't get through to them and in one case a CNN analyst inadvertently admitted he'd called a buddy who knew a buddy who had insider info that could be trusted. Guh!!!
