    While we are praying for the families affected by this terrorist attack, let's say a little prayer that the examination of the unexploded bombs doesn't disclose that the bomber(s) used gunpowder for the explosive.
    If it does, we would soon need a special permit from the Dept. of Homeland Security to buy reloading components.

    "Terrorist attack" means nothing. Still unclear if it is some foreign or domestic loony or loonies.

    I see some frightened Saudi spectator was tackled and roughed up as he attempted to flee from the bomb site. Poor guy. Guilty by association. He is also being treated in the hospital so was apparently wounded.

    I am saddened to leanr of it, but not terribly surprised. I am a realist, not an alarmist. Please maintain a high level of awareness and remain alert to any changes in pattern or suspicious behavior. We must not forget, we have enemies and we are clearly at war.

    I admire the way that cell phone service was quickly suspended to prevent the detonation of other bombs.
    I guess that's all part of contingency planning, and was not quick thinking on somebody's part.

    The reports highlighting "right wing extremists" were live on Boston local fox 25 and ABC using "consultants"
    Didn't catch the guy's name on fox 25 Lee something another.
    Sorry the "research didn't pan out, doesn't mean it didn't happen.

    A number of unexploded devices were also recovered. That should be a treasure trove of information about the bomber(s).

    I did an extensive search and couldn't find any source making a reference to or inference that conservative radical organizations possibly were involved. However, I'm quite certain it's not the work of Greenpeace or other liberal radical groups. :-)

    There are not many places more emotionally uplifting than the finish line of a marathon. This is just a terrible and senseless tragedy. My heart goes out to the families of the killed and wounded.

    Very little facts at this point...

    Yup, IED tactics 101. Place more than one and hope to catch 1st responders and more citizens in the chaos of the 1st wave.

    A few of my buddies and I have been wondering how long it would take for IEDs to hit American soil. We also wondered (actually knew) how the "blame game" will go down.
    The potential times square bomber was thought to be a tea party "activist" very early on.
    You just got to love the dumb#$% liberal media, never letting a good crisis go to waste. Dirtball scumbags.
    Fact is another terrorist attack happened on our soil and Americans were killed and injured and that iis all that is known right now.
    I do hope when they catch the organization behind this swift justice is dealt out.
