Five More Undetonated Bombs Found In Boston; Death Toll Rises To 3

Tyler Durden's picture



In the aftermath of the Boston Marathon explosions, the WSJ is reporting that counterterrorism officials have found what they believe to be five additional, undetonated explosive devices around the Boston area. 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. Each had been rendered inoperative or was in the process of being rendered inoperative.


Via WSJ,

Counterterrorism officials 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 hasn't been fully dissected or analyzed.




a White House official said: "Any event with multiple explosive devices - as this appears to be - is clearly an act of terror, and will be approached as an act of terror."

Taking the internet away from the people is necessary for a takeover of sorts. The INTERNETZ. One of the interesting things I realized about this bombing was that the authorities can shut of the cell towers in a certain area and render all of us helpless. Unless you have a landline... but the same can be done for the internets.

Did you hear about the guy who got first place in the Boston Marathon?

He won by a nose.

Sorry, just exercising one of the only rights we have always do the wrong thing, at the wrong time, encourage people to be the worst they can be, and blame the other guy.

Seems like that's what these dickhead politicians and pundits and so-called "leaders" are all about nowadays.

ZH's are perceptive and many are questioning the frame of reference we've used since childhood.

Please give this some thought and share with others if you deem it fit - widely shared understanding of the dynamic of using fear to steer the populace will prevent its use:


Now after listening to Cottrell's opinion of Lemnitzer check out his profile and realize he was selected for the Rockefeller Commission and also to investigate the murder of JFK:


We'll know with time who / what caused these explosions, however understanding the political world in which we live will bring much faster reform and ultimately a more stable system.

Seattle awhile back was the FBI trial "run" for this sting/false flag. Then, they arrested the Muslim kid they stung and grabbed him and (their) parade-route bomb before it went off. This time - alphabet Gestapo budgets are up for renewal and increase - they just let it go ahead. These creatures aren't even subtle anymore. I 'spose if you run guns to drug cartels, get caught and then still get away with it, it does breed a certain confidence.

To be noted,,,as usual, the provocateurs stir the pot...and see if they can get under FS's skin. Then try for the home run with a display of the usual 'race card' canned soundtrack.

It's gettin stale. Almost as stale as the "this is an act of terrorism" canned soundtrack. Hollowwood is fresh outta ideaz, as are all the 'hollow men' here who's resort to tired memes in an effort to support the ZOG status quo is fast failing...

worth repeating from the weekend...

"Antisemitismus" (anti-Semitism) is a form of strategic and pre-emptive psychological warfare and a strategy of gaining (or increasing) power and immunity from criticism, as well as its lack of public accountability."

and cue: a Saudi national has been identified! Free can opener with your canned laugh track?

I was watching House of Cards and in the first episode Kevin Spacey's character destroys one of his political opponents because of a supposition of 'antisemitism'.  Unfortunately, art mimics life and such a scenario is all too believable.  ANY questioning of Israel or its policies gets labeled 'antisemitic'.  We have entered into a McCarthyist era where the derogatory and destructive term 'communist' has been replaced by the term 'antisemite'.

I do not believe that people of Jewish faith are ubiquitously 'evil' (whatever that might mean), but the ones that are use the 'antisemite' shield for any and all of their actions and it is fucking disgusting.  The fact that people knowingly and willingly subject themselves to the control of these people shows them to be the cowards and quislings they are.

As for the bombings... cui bono?

I think that when they find the passport of an Iranian intelligence officer we will know.

The muppets have been trained, and most of them seem to enjoy Uncle Sam's fist up their ass-- they certainly enjoy the attention and  treats Uncle Sam lavishes on them when they bark "rayciss! rayciss! rayciss! " on command.

The bombing (and whoever they try to blame it on) is more problematic.  Who the hell is so incompetent that they launch an attack with kid-strength bombs that are deployed with a 70% failure rate.

The Palestinians and Israelis do better assembly and disassembly jobs every day.

The Iranians business in "technical assistance" would suffer if they were behind such an embarrassment. 

Even a washed up IRA tech who has spent the last decade on a bar stool could do better.


The way I see it- it was either a real amateur job, or someone was trying to kill and maim as few people as possible in an IED attack.

The discovering and disarming of several unexploded IEDs shows that our law enforcement agencies are doing a good job of protecting us from even worse events. Now if only we cede a bit more of our liberty - the last 5% we still have - then we will be perfectly safe. 

The next step will be to encourage us - resisters will be criminalized - to trade our PMs (those horribly volatile investments) for nice, safe USTs, which are guaranteed to maintain value (measured in fiat). Makes perfect sense, right? The government is here to help and protect us. SOMA, anyone?

Also to be noted, is his proclivity to insert race into any comment he makes. If I go to the store and talk to someone on the street, I'd say "I walked to the store, on the way I saw Jane, a neighbor of mine"

Francis would say "I walked to the store, on the way I saw my j00 neighbor Jane."

Note the lack of necessity to the narrative. Her race doesn't have any context, we aren't talking about her family tree or any specific aspect that would require it.

But no, its there in his version - and most if the time it will - of course when pressed upon it, he has the ready defense of "Oh hey man, I was just saying is all". Yes, truly spoken like the cowardly bigot he is.

Passive-aggressive like all get out. Its just ridiculous.

Thank you for your insight....

this discussion however, gets consistently muddied by the overlap of concepts of race\religion\economic affinity groupings so as to leave everything up in the air...and nothing nailed down. I agree with you that 'it''s just ridiculous' cause you can't have it both which I mean to say(via another quote from the weekend worth reiteration) ..."some would say that this matter is so taboo that you cannot even say that it is taboo!"...the classic double bind which has tied generations of 'Francis Sawyers' into verbal knots...and leaves them looking the fool for even daring to point to the Emperor's lack of clothing.

Those times are a changin...we are witness here on ZH to every new tide of inserted sio-trolls tasked with 'managing' the discussion rolls in...and then hits the riprap wall our our collective intolerance for further duplicious doublespeak -of the kind which has served the sionazi continuum so well, for so long -but now just bounces back, expended of momentum and merit. To paraphrase "Paul Revere and the Raiders"..."tricks just keep gettin harder to find"...for the Wormtongues and Dissemblers amongst us!

The outstanding issue here is the Talmudist Terror and it's they "jewish" "christian-zionist" "dönmeh muslim" or straight Sabbatean-Frankist mafiya transcends religion(many non-talmudist jews correctly diagnose 'sionist' and the sio-terrorist statelet as inimical to their interests!)and it has implications of 'race' far different than those the terror-statelet of "Israel" has few or none of the real "Israelites" of historical record, merely the genetic spawn of a Khazarian caste of slavers\tax farmers who have pillaged their way through history since their beginnings as a small group of hucksters who took over the Benjamite tribe and caused the rest of "Israel" to abandon it in disgust.

There is much merit in continuing to shed light on this topic of confusion...and that light will continue to be beamed by those of us who have escaped the snare of sionazi mindcontrol in the Euromerikan gulag can count on it. In the meanwhiles I salute the "Francis Sawyers" here for their perserverance in confronting the controllers, and refusing, like good goy sheep, to back down.

Actually once the limb is blown off the mechamism to transmit pain from the limb to the brain is also severed.  

I wouldn't recommend trying this on yourself for practical reasons, and if your buddy gets a limb blown off in front of you, then their are more immediate priorities, but by all means if you come accross a TSA agent with a limb blown off, fee free to pick it up and smack his co-workers upsdie the head with that severed limb...

You are square on.

I lived for many years near Boston, and l love the place, and would like to go back there.  But ... it never hurts to be real about reality.  In Mass, police on overtime for an event like the marathon are just thinking about their boat payments, not actually security.  How many times have you heard, "if you see any suspicious packages, please notify authorities immediately ..." and yet there was a bomb, near the finish line !!!  Within sniffing distance of how many cops ???  Remember that Boston Logan was the starting point for the planes that took down the WTC, and in retrospect there were red flags all over the place.  Security will just never happen in Mass -- culturally not capable.  Putting all the cops on the street for another round of boat payments after the bomb already went off is classic Boston -- cover politician ass and covert more boat payments and make the best of a bad situation, but nothing to do with security.

This is what that question is referencing, for those who don't know...

So they either had a threat that they were acting on, or something more sinister.  This is the kind of story (this University of Mobile coach story)... that should be getting the lion's share of the coverage, but, of course, won't.  It will be the kind of fact that will kind of "go away" over time.  You'll be called a "truther" at some point for mentioning it.

my phone didn't work until around 6pm. But it was no problem because we just queued up for the payphones. Hold them with your sleeve and for God's sake don't let them actually touch your ear!


The number of working payphones has decreased significantly since then, though. During Sandy, we charged the phones with a solar panel or with the car charger. Then we had to drive a few blocks away to get a signal since our local tower was apparently dead.

Because real 'merican terrorists are just tooooooo fat and lazy to obtain and use a police band radio as a triggering device, unlike their more studious overseas counterparts.

Or because a WiFi signal couldn't be used to trigger a device from anywhere in the world.

On Patriots Day...during one of Boston's most prided events, the world famous Boston Day Marathon.

Again, thats fairly symbolic. Yes, bad things happen everyday - however, only special ones get shown on the illuminati controlled main stream media.


And to think, these explosions go off right near the 'finish line' while also, a memorial was setup for New town victims there.


This morning’s festivities began with a solemn hush sweeping through the crowd as a 26-second moment of silence was held just before 9 a.m. for the 26 victims of the Dec. 14 shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn.

Nine racers from the Newtown community are running the marathon today to raise money for Newtown Strong, which provides a scholarship fund for the siblings of the shooting victims.

They are wearing green T-shirts with the names of all 26 victims represented on the back. Each victim has a mile dedicated in his or her name, and the BAA has dedicated Mile No. 26 to the town.

A specially designed marker stands tall for all marathoners to see just before the final dash to the finish line with the green colors of Sandy Hook school splashed on it with the Newtown municipal seal on the bottom. There are also 26 stars circling the town emblem, one for every life lost.

With the US availability of the UHF Family Radio System, there's no reason to be cut off, or "helpless". VHF (27MHz) has an even better range performance, being slightly less affected by buildings.

Seems silly not to plan for the likelihood of service restrictions owing to excess demend. Or is this sort of commonsense, basic thinking now classed as "marking us out as potential terrorists!"??

But none of those were 'fun killings.' Just random actions of random actors in a culture that has forgotten why it exists.

Stuff that happens every day. Murders, car wrecks and cancer just doesn't have the sexy sizzle selling stuff that a nice suprise bombing encompasses.

We 'Merkins like a lot of suprise in our killing. A simple drive-by murder of a black honor student has become so commonplace that it doesn't grab eyeballs anymore. But everybody responds to blowing shit up; especially when regular people of the white persuasion get parted out or dead.

Indeed Freddie, an epic battle and turning point in European history, the Polish contribution to which the Germans and Austrians are to this day congenitally unable to acknowledge.  The Austrian Emperor Leopold, who fled Vienna before the city was entirely surrounded by the Turks and who took no part in its defense or relief, had a statue erected to himself after Vienna's liberation (and which stands to this day), but refused to allow any memorial honoring the Polish king Jan Sobieski III, the leader of the combined forces who drove off the Turks and saved Vienna.  The Slavs have always been untermenschen in the eyes of the Germans, and I suspect remain so to this day.
