no casualties as it stands.. the amount of blood has me thinking those numbers will change.

UK news already reporting that it's Patriots day there and this may be related.
Will be blamed on local patriot extremists no doubt. Thank goodness DHS ordered a billion bullets recently to protect everybody...

So, they have a Saudi National in custody at the hospital? The NY Post says the police have a 20 year old Saudi in custody with shrapnel wounds and he is a prime suspect. This is waaaay too convenient and waaaay to soon to have a suspect. Why in Gods name would someone plant these things and hang around near enough to get pounded with shrapnel, but far away enough not to go to Allah and their glory? This is fishy folks, and it blends nicely with the DHS ammo purchases and gun control. Martial law anyone?

Nothing says the bombs went off when they were intended to. I've seen a number of men in Iraq blow themselves up on accident. We had one guy blow off both of his hands and live. I still don't give credence to the reports, just keep the word "possibility" in mind.

I don't think the Saudi nationality is a propoganda stunt. The Saudis are US allies. They could have called him Syrian or Iranian if they wanted a reason for a foreign policy escalation.
Yes, the majority of the 911 terrorists were Saudis. But did the US invade SA? No.

9/11. London Subway, Sandy Hook, Aurora shooting, and now this: how does the government ALWAYS happen to be "on the scene" doing a drill during EVERY tragedy? Have we been had again?

You guys have already said what we are all thinking. This will either be used to attack Iran or attack us; either way, it will be quite bad.

Don't forget the Oklahoma City bombing. The bomb squad was already there doing a "drill" just before the explosion.

This time it won't be about invading another country; this is the excuse for Homeland checkpoints on every corner.

Also, as you noted, it doesn't matter what country they're from. The government only needs "scary brown people" to justify war anywhere there are brown people.

Spotters and bomb dogs are pretty standard security elements. Their presence should be accepted as normal. The loud speakers however, I don't know what those guys were thinking... probably trying to keep people calm, though saying that seems like a bad decision.

It's either incompetence that they didn't find the bombs with sniff dogs or they're part of the team...

My commentary, with a video (unedited by a bystander who was in the right place at the right time), is here.

Yes, I know a thing or 3 about bombs. No point repeating it all here.

I have a friend who is an ex-news-cameraman, later ran a desk, for CBS and PBS in Texas - he was at Waco. He says no one ever directed him to edit things to get a particular message out - and I believe him, he's a real "square shooter" (and a PM bug type). On the other hand, when discussing Waco and the McVeigh bombing, we both noted that during editing to "Sound bite" audience, most of the forensic evidence was lost, since that footage was boring. And in the latter case, the spin produced later did NOT reflect what we saw before they edited their videos, not even close.

In the case of Waco, they grounded his helicopter and forced him off-site (he snuck back) before they used the incendiaries on it.

So, it's a mixed bag of info from "people who were there". Eyewitness reports are always a bit unreliable, that's why RAW video is so important, yet so rarely allowed out, because it inhibits "not letting a crisis go to waste" for some agendas.
