Live reporting from Boston.com
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”
Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
“There was just smoke, another explosion went off,” Stevenson said. “We all started running. There were people crying.”
Stevenson said there was no question in his mind that this was an intentional act.
Stupid murdering fucks, just caught the news on CBC a moment ago, ffs insanity.
If you have a Twitter account..it's running viral over there.

Suspect is surrounded by five officers. Wearing a white baseball cap and a hoody.
I cannot confirm if this man is a bombing suspect or not.

BREAKING: Boston police commissioner says no suspect is in custody in marathon explosions
Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
Fox News reported that the suspect suffered severe burns.
The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.
In addition, Boston police have surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.
Well, do they or do they not have a suspect??

UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs Were at Start, Finish Lines for “Drill”
Bad doggies! *slap*
Let the moonbatery and wild baseless speculation begin
I talked to an explosives expert I know... His analysis goes something like this.
This was NOT high explosives, you can tell that from all the smoke and fire. This was most likely a zinc powder with other stuff bomb or another low end chemical explosive. Bomb squads on the site already know what kind of bomb they are looking at as they have test strips that will tell them in less than 5 mins. They will find the ignition source, (Likely a cell) because it was not high explosives, and most of the info about who and why will come from that. He also said that it was unlikely to have been larger than a backpack. He further states that Boston's cells service will be out for likely the next 12-14 hours while they sweep for any remaining bombs. The system is not down due to "overload" as has been reported by media, but was cut specifically to stop any more detonations. He is writing up a summery for his message board, and when I see that I'll likely cross post it here.
Every and All "anomalies" should be looked at PS. That's what we do.
Here is the actual post

econd: After watching the Tapes of the Explosions, I can say with about 95% certainty, that these were NOT High Explosive Devices, but were Low Explosive Devices. The difference being, High Explosive Materials Decompose (Detonate) with little SMOKE, other than the dust kicked up from the Pressure Wave. Low Explosive Materials, Oxidize (Burn - Deflagrate) and those Oxidized Compounds, typically generate lots of SMOKE, that gets scattered by a much Smaller Pressure Wave., along with the dust near the site. My conclusion is, that these were Low Explosive materials, which is the reason that there is so little Damage, compared to what an HE Device would have caused, being of similar size. If I could have smelled the Smoke, I could have told you the exact composition of the Energetic Materials used, by the oder.
Local ATF will have the Energetics, defined, and known, here in about two hours, if they were commonly available compounds used. They have Test Strips that used to determine these things, in their "Go Bags". Cellular Services were SHUT DOWN in the area, as a precaution, as they COULD have been used as the Trigger. I suspect we will hear one way or the other, what the Trigger Device was, as there will be MANY parts, available for recovery, around each of the sites, due to the SLOW nature of the Explosion, that was shown.
Be prepared for the day when Comrade Obama shuts down cell service nationwide, for our own safety and "to protect us."
It IS coming...

One of the witness I heard said there was a strong smell of sulfur in the air.If that turns out to be TRUE, then there are a number of mixtures that could be used.
Metallic Metal (Zinc, Magnesium) Dust & Sulfur
Potassium Chlorate & Sulfur
and a few others....
Wrong color SMOKE for Black Powder....
ANY Bomb sniffing Doggies would NOT alert on such compounds, as the above,
as they have NO NitroOrganics involved. These Dogs are trained to alert on NitroOrganics, which ALL have a distinctive scent, that is easy for them to identify...
Get an Amateur Radio license.
I keep telling you, these teabaggers keep egging each other on, someone's going to do something really nasty. I hope you're happy with yourselves tonight, Beck, Limbaugh and Sykes. Bastards.
Happy Patriots Day. And Tax Day. Dammit.
Pics or it didn't happen.
So you're saying it's home grown, like Oklahoma.
Now there's a blast from the past.
Get a psychiatrist
Maybe we should move the Obama is a commie/Nazi/antichrist discussion to another thread?
IT WAS NORTH KOREA, or 9gag, take your pick.
April 15th, could be the baggers.
We've always said that the antidote to bad speech is more speech. But post-Internet I'm not so sure. There's just so damn much mis-information out there clothed in traditional signifiers of legitimacy. Bad guys be spamming us into submission, basically.
The solution must be some sort of two-tiered media system. We come up with explicit evidential standards and license people to report information that meets those standards. We impose terrible penalties upon anyone who gets caught cheating those evidential rules. At the same time everyone who thinks our government is run by lizard people can carry on with their comic book level of political analysis and reporting. We will go to the licensed people for real news and political commentary. We'll tune into the loudmouths for the lulz. The schizophrenics and stupid people will hopefully recognize that the lulz channel is no justification for bombs.
Shoot this down - it might just be a crazy idea.
But is it possible that Muslims might be behind this? I know it sounds crazy, but one or two incidents of terror attacks on civilians of Western nations in the past decade have been carried out by Muslims.
I can't think of any offhand, because most terror attacks were carried out by Anders Breivik or Timothy McVeight or that other guy.
Muslims, baggers, lone nutter, who knows? We will have to wait and see.
Regardless of who planted bombs at the Boston Marathon, I think the crazytalk all around us that looks like real news is probably agitating the mentally unstable.
Oh Budd.....go back to Fox news, Limburger and Alex Jones, ok?
I call bullshit on arresting the Arab. A bomb; on Tax Day, Patriot Day, and the anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing. Yeah, has all the earmarks of Al Qaeda.
Piffle. There is too much commerce dependent upon phones, and many people only have cells these days. Will not happen because corporate masters must reach the squalling masses clamoring for stuff.
I know it couldn't be Islamists, because they have called off their jihad and renounced violence all over the world.
But didn't the Oklahoma City bombing happen in Oklahoma on 19 April?
Here's a news search for Mohammad al-Chalabi:
Taking bets on what's next:
1. Fox News blames it on Obama's Kenyan upbringing
2. MSNBC blames it on the Bush tax cuts
3. The Westboro scum announce plans to picket the funerals
4. Scientology Volunteer Ministers set up a big yellow tent
NYPost is a rag like National Enquirer. Inflated talking points to get more readers!
It's also the anniversary of the Oklahoma bombing of the Murrah building. And Tax Day. And Patriot Day in MA.
Yeah, got Al Qaeda fingerprints all over it.
And yeah, they moved the op to Boston Commons. Isn't that where the clammies were bothering people not too long ago? Expect yellow tents to pop up like mushrooms after a rain.
