Boston Marathon bombing a false flag event?
The tragic news of the bombings prilt the Boston Marathon are nothing to joke around about, so before you load up the comments section with hate mail, know that I don’t fully subscribe to these conspiracy theories, but that doesn’t mean they’re entirely wrong. The important thing is to question the official story and determine if it makes sense or not. It’s not like the mainstream media is so full of clarity that conspiracy theories don’t have their place. For instance, take this snippet of news taken from CNN:
A terrorism expert briefed on the investigation said doctors are “pulling ball bearings out of people in the emergency room,” suggesting the bombs were designed to propel shrapnel.
But Dr. Ron Walls of Brigham and Women’s Hospital, which received 31 patients, said the debris found in some patients’ wounds did not appear to be from ball bearings
So what the hell? Were there ball bearings or not? This is the kind of red flag that seems as if something is sketchy with all of this. The same exact thing happened during 9/11 when some people said they heard explosions before the towers fell. That part of the story seemed to fade over time… So let’s take a look at what’s going on in the conspiracy circles.
Alex Jones and Infowars are all over this Boston Marathon bombing, claiming foul play. I verified a link they posted, that featured a University of Mobile cross country coach’s eyewitness report of what appeared to be before hand knowledge of the event.
Straight from the local news 15 in Mobile:
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 to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He’s been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise,” Stevenson said. “I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.”
Alex Jones has a couple of articles up that talk about how the establishment media is already starting in on him:
After Alex reported the event has all the hallmarks of a false flag event, Mediaite said the “accusation suggests that Jones believes the government, or some other powerful entity, is behind the explosions and intends to utilize this event to justify a political agenda…. In case you thought he was kidding, Jones repeated his assertion by claiming that the FBI is behind ‘virtually every domestic terror plot.’”
Former MSNBC anchor Dan Abrams’ Mediaite would have us believe Jones’ assertion is crazy fantasy or an outright lie meant to deceive. However, last April none other than the New York Times reported that the FBI has hatched most domestic terror plots in the United States in the wake of September 11, 2001. A report by Mother Jones and the Investigative Reporting Program at the University of California-Berkley released in 2011 revealed that it is common practice for the FBI to create terror plots from scratch and entrap witless and even mentally ill patsies. Mediaite, naturally, neglected to mention this when pillaring Jones.
Glenn Beck’s The Blaze joined in on the feeding frenzy and attempted to discount the probability that the terrorist attack was contrived by the government as a false flag. Jason Howerton, writing for Beck, said Jones “doesn’t have legitimate evidence to back up his claim” despite an ample history of government involvement in terrorist attacks – from Nero’s torching of Rome to the Reichstag fire and phantom communists firing on U.S. ships in the Gulf of Tonkin. Howerton and Beck, of course, ignore the fact the at the highest level of the Pentagon there was a plan to stage terror attacks on American soil as a pretext to invade Cuba.
“While most observers are withholding judgment about what caused the two explosions at the Boston Marathon this afternoon, right-wing conspiracy theorists already know what’s going on – the government did it and is going to pin the blame on them because today is Patriots’ Day, a special day in the militia movement,” writes Alex Seitz-Wald for Salon.
Here’s another post about how the marathon had a “drill“:
If this report is accurate, it clearly suggests there could have been some degree of prior knowledge of the bombing, which killed two people and injured at least 23.
The fact that the explosions were preceded and overlapped by a”drill” of an almost identical nature mirrors other major terror attacks, such as the 7/7 bombings in London.
It is important to emphasize that the New York Times recently reported that most of the recent domestic terror plots in the United States “were facilitated by the F.B.I.,” suggesting that today’s incident in Boston may have been part of such an operation.
It remains to be seen how the media and the Obama administration will exploit this incident depending who gets the blame, but Rahm Emanuel’s “never let a serious crisis go to waste” advisory is sure to be in play.
Icke also posted up some comparison the MSM is making between this explosion and Patriot’s Day and right wing conspiracies:
‘Before any information was available that might indicate who is responsible for the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, Esquire’s Charles P. Pierce cautioned readers against “jumping to conclusions” and blaming the attack on “foreign terrorism.”
However, he was compelled to remind people that Monday is the “official Patriots Day holiday” in Massachusetts, celebrating the Battles at Lexington and Concord. He also pointed out that April 19, the actual date of the battles, is connected to Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh, who apparently considered himself a “waterer of the tree of liberty and the like,” according to Pierce.’
‘CNN national security analyst Peter Bergentold host Jake Tapper on Monday that the explosions in Boston could be the work of Al Qaeda terrorists as much as they could be part of a planned assault by “right-wing extremists.” Bergen said he was reminded of the Oklahoma City bombing, and that terrorism on the right could not be ruled out.’
One more oddity I’d like to throw in the ring is the fact that today, April 15th was tax day. Everyone is scrambling to make last minute adjustments to tax refunds. With that being said, maybe the right wing Tea Party types coordinated it since they’re so anti-government, yet totally dependent upon it…
Icke also posted up an image of a Facebook page set up two days prior to the attack, but has since been removed. We had tons of these types of reports during the Sandy Hook incident, and all of them turned out to be fakes, so I don’t even believe this one at all:
Another weird thing is that there is an Illuminati card game which featured a card of joggers, which is odd to say the least:
Here is a special on Coast to Coast about the Boston bombing that was a last minute update to their schedule:
For the first half of the show, intelligence expert Douglas Hagmann reported on the Boston Marathon bombings, and offered analysis of the tragic event. There are so many things we don’t know at this point, he noted, yet he doesn’t find it surprising that many are suspicious of official government accounts, because the public has often been misled in the past. Curiously, a bomb squad was running a training exercise with controlled explosions on the same day in Boston, and it was said that their drill was still going on when the attack bombs hit, he detailed. It was also reported that a Saudi national was hospitalized with severe burns, and was tentatively identified as someone who was bringing in backpacks near where the two bombs went off. The bombs were believed to be detonated by a cell phone, he stated.
There is information that there were three additional devices found– one outside the area in Newton, MA. This suggests to Hagmann a larger plot or operation. He considers the bombing an act of terrorism in that it caused mass fear, yet we still don’t know the motivation behind it. The fact that there were multiple devices also aligns with what we would normally think of as a terrorist attack, he continued. “It seems like [the attack] was very well coordinated, and very well planned, and somehow…managed to escape the vast security surrounding this event,” he commented.
Hagmann shared a photo of an unidentified man under police guard at Boston Common immediately following the bombings. The man was said to run from the blast area and to be acting suspicious before the bombs went off. Another photo, originally posted on Twitter, shows an individual on a rooftop directly overlooking one of the blasts. Hagmann said the bombings could be looked at in the context of all the world events taking place such as conflicts with North Korea and Iran, and possible new global alliances forming. The FBI and inter-agency investigation involving the forensics of the bombs and the blast pattern could take months, he added.
In the latter half, callers were invited to share their reactions to the the bombings. Richard from Alabama said he’d worked as law enforcement at large stadium events, and pointed out the 26-mile Boston Marathon was a logistical nightmare in terms of security. “There’s no way to control a large event like that,” he said. Several callers wondered if the attack might have been a ” false flag” event.
And here’s a Family Guy episode with some predictive programming where Peter wins the Boston Marathon after calling in two bomb explosions via cell phone, but EW posted that it is a doctored/false clip of two different episodes, which makes sense because it seems choppy (you’ll want to hurry up and watch/share this video- Youtube is yanking all of the clips from this show that have this subject matter):
UPDATE: Apparently this photo is correctly identifying the suspects, according to an Infowars breaking news post:
Photos of Boston bombing suspects sent to Infowars by Anonymous that caused a huge stir on the Internet yesterday after being posted by the Drudge Report have been confirmed by police to be the two men sought for questioning, but the authorities and the media remain mute on other photos which show what are likely to be employees of a private security firm carrying large black backpacks at the scene of the explosion.
“In the photos being distributed by law-enforcement officials among themselves, one of the men is carrying a blue duffel bag. The other is wearing a black backpack in the first photo, taken at 10:53 a.m., but it is not visible in the second, taken at 12:30 p.m,” reports the New York Post.
The photo is identical to an image we posted yesterday on Infowars.com showing two middle eastern looking individuals, one with a white baseball cap and another wearing a blue jacket.
Commenter ‘ice t’ makes a good point that if this is truly a false flag event, the timing was convenient such that a few important bills were being discussed on Capitol Hill, with minimal coverage. Let’s see what’s being voted on while everyone is distracted:
H.R.624 – Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act
To provide for the sharing of certain cyber threat intelligence and cyber threat information between the intelligence community and cybersecurity entities, and for other purposes.
S.649 – Center to Advance, Monitor, and Preserve University Security Safety Act of 2013
A bill to ensure that all individuals who should be prohibited from buying a firearm are listed in the national instant criminal background check system and require a background check for every firearm sale, and for other purposes.
S.150 – Assault Weapons Ban of 2013
A bill to regulate assault weapons, to ensure that the right to keep and bear arms is not unlimited, and for other purposes.
H.R.756 – Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2013
To advance cybersecurity research, development, and technical standards, and for other purposes.
Also, states are voting on how to implement aspects of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). And there is this weird issue of these letters being mailed with ricin, and the fertilizer plant in Texas blowing up. All could be coincidence, or an overwhelming amount of distraction so we don’t focus on changing gun control laws or the big brother aspects of what goes down online. They’ve been desperately trying to push through an internet bill like CISPA for months now. Take a look at what Rep. Tom McClintock said about H.R. 624:
The House has been considering HR 624, the so-called CISPA bill. Although its sponsors assure us that a person’s Internet data would be stripped of personal identification, the bill allows this data then to be used to prosecute certain federal crimes. How could that be? It turns out, the government, having stumbled upon this evidence, can then seek a warrant to obtain the personally identifying information.
This makes it the functional equivalent of the “writs of assistance” used by the English Crown in colonial times. It is antithetical to the Fourth Amendment which requires that before the government can invade your privacy, it must first present a court with reasonable cause to believe you have committed a crime.
This bill effectively allows the government to search through your personal records indiscriminately and then use that information to form the basis of a prosecution.
I’ll update this post as I find more. As the news unfolds we’ll have to see if authorities knew something was up, or what was going on with this drill.
