Of course there`s going to be security sweeps. There always is. Go to any big city where a large event is being held. Police will be present. It was a tragic incident, but that does not mean that there`s any kind of conspiracy.

What are the chances that a bomb would go off in Boston at the same time that a marathon is going on, seems way too convenient and coincidental if it would have happened the day before or after there would be far less injuries, sure does sound like a conspiracy to me... I blame aliens.

The North Koreans will get the blame and uncle Sam will have their excuse.

You can`t classify it as a terrorist attack until there`s at least one decent conspiracy.

That clip is kind of weird to see AFTER the fact, key word after. It`s like an "optical" illusion for the brain, edited together like that. But think about it, how much content is produced nowadays? I`m sure if you scour all episodes of every show, you can do the same thing "predicting" anything after it happened.

@CaptainKangaroo: That`s a fact! Almost every government has one, even Canada! The USA`s counterintelligence though, it`s massive...

[quote]Stupid. They always lock down the area and send the dogs through 24 hours before the race. That`s normal security.[/quote]
@Gerry1: I 100% agree. It would be WEIRD if they did NOT do it! Bomb-sniffing dogs are "routine" now...

@kain1: Like say... the second week of September... about 12 years ago? Run a full scale "skyjack" drill... just by random coincidence...

I love a good conspiracy too! But bad ones = sux

"could have been a domestic terrorist attack executed by `the patriots` obviously referring to hard righters"

mmm, because it was Patriot Day and tax day, maybe?

Oh yeah, let`s say it was an `inside job` because someone like Chris Matthews has to say it was `right wingers` right?

@Nerd_Rage

All that matters is 3 people are dead and many injured thanks to some jackoff that decided to set off some bombs. It doesn`t matter who did it, it was done and it was horrible. But a conspiracy? Sorry try again.

"particularly liberal sources"

When you say "liberal sources" do you mean "everyone but Fox News"?

"the last tragedy you heard about was newtown and now newtown people where hit again in the vip sections. coincidence i think not."

Well if that is true then Newtown people were invited to the race and given VIP access specifically because they were at Newtown.

If you are bombing and want to make the biggest impact you target the finish line where the VIP section is.

Sounds like a pretty easy coincidence to me.

less than an hour after the bombing major media sources in the USA , particularly liberal sources speculated that this could have been a domestic terrorist attack executed by `the patriots` obviously referring to hard righters.. it doesn`t really matter, all tat matters is that the last tragedy you heard about was newtown and now newtown people where hit again in the vip sections. coincidence i think not.

so when there`s no security people complain that there is no one in case something happens, and when there is security, they ger blamed for planning the attacks?

Muricans...

Very interesting. I heard on NPR today an official say they "ran two EOD passes of the area prior to the end of the race." (paraphrasing) Also, did anyone notice the picture of the guy in the bomb suit walking around? There was still smoke in the air, which indicates he was already on-site. All signs point to prior knowledge. They even picked out a "suspect" right after the explosions.

hmm.. i`d need to see some kind of confirmation that they were in fact running an exercise, and what it was about, before this has any sort of credibility.
I`m a sucker for conspiracy theories, but even i need more than some random guy saying he noticed more security than usual, after the fact.

I`d be more suspicious if there was no heightened security at an event as big as the Boston Marathon.

Also, this just crossed my mind about Boston. I`ve been to tons of regular concerts (not talking about big festivals) all over the country and the ONLY time I`ve ever seen actual police officers inside a venue along with the venue`s security was at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston when I was there in December 2011 to see two Allman Brothers shows. That was first thing I noticed when going in and asked one of locals about it who told me the Boston PD always likes to have a big presence at events regardless of how big or small they are.

There were 500,000 people in a small area for a big event. There would be dogs, spotters, and heightened security no matter what.

Now if this happened on some random day and there were those things you`d have something.

No, there`s always "heightened security" at events like the Boston Marathon.
