Bomb Squad Arrives At Boston Marathon Finish Line To Investigate Unattended Bags

Tyler Durden's picture


On the one year anniversary of the Boston Marathon Bombing (which oddly enough the NSA did not prevent, even before its expansive anti-terrorist exploits were revealed by Edward Snowden) it was practically unavoidable that there would be some echos of that tragic day. Sure enough as CBS reports, "the area near the finish line of the Boston Marathon was evacuated Tuesday night after two unattended backpacks were left at the finish line. Police tape has been put up around the photo bridge on Boylston Street. WBZ-TV photographers on scene say they saw a person with the backpack screaming “Boston Strong” before police cleared everyone from the area."

Witnesses say the person was barefoot, wearing a long black veil and was acting strange. It is unclear whether or not the person was taken into custody.


Copley Station on the Green Line is closed while police investigate the bags.


One year ago, three people died, and more than 260 people were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the marathon. Earlier in the day, Vice President Joe Biden joined survivors, and victim’s families for a moment of silence at 2:49 p.m., the same time the bombs exploded a year ago.

Below is a video of the suspicious person:

Moments later the bomb squad arrived.

We suppose the "all clear" will be given promptly, but should the situation escalate, we will update.

Should be easier this year not picking up the bombs left around by 3-letter agencies.

Have seen NO hard evidence that Tsarnev's planted bombs.

Opinion:  Patsies, till PROVEN otherwise.

They announced they had video of the brothers placing the backpacks and then hanging around acting strange after the bombs went off. They specifically said this, and then they never produced the video they said they had. It just disappeared like a fart in the wind.

McGowen destroys the Boston Bombing false flag. Well I don't know what you call it. A false flag would infer someone was harmed. It looks like all the players are fine, and done got rich off the sordid affair. It is an interesting series of articles detailing and deconstructing the footage of that day, with a bizarre get rich quick ending. Didn't the FBI tell everyone to stop looking after the, err, problems, bad acting got exposed. Nothing is at it seems, and the truth is out there, but I'm not sure any of us are ready at this point.

What would you call this. False flag crisis acting? I want to coin a new term but I'm not clever enough.

UPDATE: The barefoot person who was wearing a long black veil and acting strange has been identified as Vladimir Putin.

UPDATE 2: The FBI says it has footage of Putin placing the backpack and then hanging around looking strange. This footage will never be released to the public and all mention of it will promptly be thrown down the memory hole.

Sadly, given the near-total inversion of word meanings that now seems to permeate our culture, I suspect it doesn't mean what the words say any more.

How many truly strong people (physically, mentally or otherwise) have you met who feel the constant need to tell you how strong they are?  How many exceptional people have you met who feel the need to constantly point out their exceptionalism?  How many heroic people do you know that go around crowing about their heroism?

Really I think it's because of the Irish, malnutrition you know, and inbreeding, and they're perverts, they hate their moms. They smell funny. They may, in fact be the lost tribe but like a bad penny they keep showing back up. The other tribes are like, "Hey, stay lost."  I'd like to punch one right in the face but they're not brave enough for an honest fight.

You'd think these false flag attacks would be done with a little more attntion to covering the tracks of the actual perpetrator. Almaost like they are deliberately leaving clues as to truth behind the cover story.

Well now wait a minute.  I have to question with all the great beefed up security, how does this still happen?  So much for preventitive measures.  

Naturally one would have to question whether or not someone with the Authoirty came up with a "brilliant idea" believing that a stunt like this would show how much better security is, building street credit while showing the need to remain vigilant.  See that's the problem with a person, an entity, a government that lies once too often, everything said afterwards is or should always viewed with a jaundiced eye and the offending party doesn't get to bitch about being doubted because fool me once...  You can't complain about not being trusted when you have not earned the right to be trusted through consistent action.

Media person left one of the bags.   The other was in possession of a "suspicious behaving" person that stated that a rice cooker was in the bag when questioned and sure enough a rice cooker was in the bag.  The person was promptly arressted for "suspicious behavior".  Media person responsible and was neither identified nor arrested and certainly didn't get the hanging you called for.  I presume they detonated the empty media bag.  Quite the show for the people.  Made it look all very frightening.  At the end of it all,  the only explosive device set off was by the Authority as "training kicked in" per the Boston police spokesperson.   Hmmm....

Who was trained, the officers, the media and the public on how to behave when the Authority decides there is imminent danger.

Tune in next year for the next exciting episode of "Boston Strong" the newest drama directed by the Authority shown on every news outlet repeated every hour of the news cycle.
