Reported Boston Explosion Suspect In Custody, Is A Saudi National

Tyler Durden's picture


Update from Bloomberg: Boston Police says no suspects are in custody. Could it be that even the venerable NYPost got something wrong? Or is the Boston PD merely making a distinction between someone in custody (i.e., arrested) and someone guarded as a possible suspect? We should find out soon.

Just a brief blurb at the NY Post for now (which may have been overzealous in reporting the number of casualties earlier) but for what it's worth:

  • Authorities ID'd a suspect in marathon bombings - he is being guarded in Boston hospital.
  • Authorities have a identified a suspect, who is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital with shrapnel wounds.

Unclear how much credibility to assign to this, but that's what is being reported. We will provide more info if and when we see it. Some more via twitter, where we learn that according to CBSNews, police have surveillance video a person bringing multiple backpacks into the area 20 or so minutes before the explosions.

The NY Post has released more, such as the nationality of the suspect: Saudi.

Authorities have confirmed to The Post that they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.


The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.


A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.

Gov's conspiracy theory was that 911 was work of Saudis and they then mounted invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.

Using same approach, we can now expect retaliatory attack on Iran for Boston bombings.

"Gov's conspiracy theory was that 911 was work of Saudis and they then mounted invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq. Using same approach, we can now expect retaliatory attack on Iran for Boston bombings."

Might be a decent plan if the Saudi came from a training camp in Iran. If he was from an Afghani training camp or Tora Bora somebody better start explaining though. After $1trillion or so down that shithole they should be able to keep a lid on Afghanistan at least, with troops on the ground.

When W decided to buy it after breaking it, poof no WMD's no more Sunni dictatorship over a hostile country thats 60% Shia next door. No more obstacles to Greater Persia. If we had balls we'd cut a deal with the Shia, overrun Iraq, the House of Saud with them. Also Kuwait and divvy it up.

Obama will say that this just shows how we need more money (e.g. tax increases on the wealthy) to pay the heroic first responders (and fund their feather bed pensions).

No focus will be on stopping the fuckard that did this getting into the country in the first place.  Can't believe they picked up a Saudi stooge in less than two hours - so transparent. 

Did the stooge have a Al-Queda flag draped around him?  Sounds fishy.

WAIT - It was because of the anti-muhammad video that this happened - that's the ticket....

No terrorism here - where is OBUMMER anyways - I can't believe he isn't in front of the camera by now.   He is probably under his desk.

well... that all started at the dograces...

a black guy saw a dog run after a rabbit...
the rabbit looked like it was holding something shinny...
so the black man followed the rabit...


I do wonder where the rabbit is....

But to keep the black runners motivated, they pass a shinny silver stick and there's a man with a gun next to the track...

No, they put the black guy on the track and then put the dogs after him.  It's a nasty habit white folks have.

100 bucks says the "terrorist" is connected to the Soverign Citizen Movement or something similar...SCM makes the most since given the date (tax day).  They'll then connect all gun and gold owners, constitutionalists, RP supporters, 'BOSTON' tea know the drill......FALSE FLAG.

Here is another little fun fact: Bomb squad was running "controlled explosion" on the same day

What's not yet being reported by the mainstream media is that a "controlled explosion" was under way on the same day as the marathon explosion.

As the Boston Globe tweeted today, "Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities."

Bloomberg news is now saying, "This is very likely a terrorist attack."

Please stop spreading disinformation. Best I can tell, that was the bomb squad detonating the third bomb (you might take note that this tweet was AFTER the attack).

Yeah, WTF?!?!   @Martial, did you actually read that before you posted it?  If so, WTF?

EDIT: I guess you are repeating Mike Adams/NaturalNews (beyond just the image of the twitter feed).  Hmm -- I would not have expected that from him.

Well, I possibly stand corrected. Of course there was a bomb drill there today.

oh really??


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.”

Guess the dogs failed the test.

Any chance this guy was running in the race with some kind of device that would set off the bombs as he ran by? Maybe he miscalculated and got shrapneled as he ran by and thus was unable to get to the other bombs. When medical assitance came they found the transmitter and the case was solved?

Maybe he carried that sucker internally for 26 miles and 384 yards? Or maybe there's a simpler explanation. :)
