Some Questions about the Boston Bombings

(1) Why has the public not seen the evidence that Djohar and Tamerlan ever set down their backpacks in the first place?

(2) Why did news coverage of the Boston bombings, which killed three people, completely overshadow any coverage of the explosion at the West, TX plant which killed at least 15 people and wiped out an entire town?

(3) Why did officials tell everyone, just before the bombings, "keep calm, this is just a drill..."?

(4) Why did the bombs go off after most of the runners had crossed the finish line, when the crowd started to thin and all the VIP's went home? Wouldn't a real terrorist want to kill the maximum number possible?

(5) Who are these guys?

(6) What was tucked in this guys belt and what was in these bags laying in the street?

Concerning this [graphic] picture,

(7) Why is there no trail of blood?

(8) Why is he conscious?

(9) Why is the knee so far away from his main body?

And after the bombings,

(10) Why didn't the brothers leave town? Why did Djohar party with his friends as if nothing happened?

(11) How did Tamerlan die, exactly?

(12) How did Djohar get his injuries?

(13) Isn't there any video footage of the so-called shootout, ATM robbery, or any of that stuff at all other than what we've been told? There's got to be! Why can't we see it?

Oh, and one last question:

Boston marathon crisis actors

I noticed some days ago that Nick Vogt, the guy who lost his legs in Afghanistan and looks a lot like "wheelchair guy", was also missing his left pinky finger. So I studied the wheelchair guy's left hand and couldn't find any clear evidence he had all ten fingers or not. Then I found this video [caution: graphic].

Couple that with this excellent article by B'Man. Apparently a woman who was an eyewitness to the marathon bombing was also an eyewitness to shooting at Watertown [h/t: Zen Gardener].

On another note, have any of you noticed that whenever CNN interviews anyone out in the "field", there's always flashing red lights in the background? Either that or blue and red flashing lights, or traffic cones. Considering they're almost always doing their interviews in front of a blue or green screen using chroma key technology (notice how passersby never pay attention to them), what they use as their otherwise arbitrary background is important. It's a deliberate choice they're making. Considering how most people mentally associate flashing lights with traumatic events anyway (ask anyone who has ever been pulled over or witnessed a horrific accident), it's like they're deliberately trying to spike the viewer's blood pressure whenever the subject is the Boston bombings.

The Bombing Suspect Didn’t Engage In a Shootout with Police, Or Shoot Himself … He WASN’T EVEN ARMED When Hiding In the Boat

(reposted from Washinton's Blog)

Officials said that Boston terror suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev engaged in a shootout with police and then may have tried to kill himself while he was trapped in the boat, before he surrendered to police.

For example, Newsday reported:
Authorities believe Tsarnaev may have tried to shoot himself before he was taken into custody Friday night because of the trajectory and location of the bullet wound in his neck, a source familiar with the investigation said Sunday.
And the Daily Mail wrote:
Tsarnaev is believed to have shoved his pistol in his own mouth and pulled the trigger in a failed suicide attempt as SWAT officers and federal agents closed in on his backyard hiding place. However, instead of killing him, the bullet simply tore through his neck.
However, the Washington Post reports today:
The suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing had no firearms when he came under a barrage of police gunfire that struck the boat where he was hiding, according to multiple federal law enforcement officials.

Authorities said they were desperate to capture Dzhokhar Tsarnaev so he could be questioned. The FBI, however, declined to discuss what prompted the gunfire.


In the immediate aftermath of Tsarnaev’s capture, police officials said he had fired from the boat and he was reported to have been captured with several weapons. There were also reports that the gunshot wound he suffered to the throat might have been an attempt to kill himself as police moved in.

The Post also reports that the barrage of gunfire by authorities may have occurred because of a single accidental shot by the police:
Law enforcement officials described the 30 minutes before the arrest of Tsarnaevas chaotic. One characterized it as “the fog of war” and said that in a highly charged atmosphere, one accidental shot could have caused what police call “contagious fire.”

Four Guantanamo hunger strikers reported in critical condition

A US military official has reported that four of the inmates on hunger strike at the Guantanamo military prison and torture camp are in critical condition and have been transferred to the prison’s hospital.

Lieutenant Colonel Samuel House also announced on Tuesday that 17 out of the 84 inmates currently on hunger strike at the notorious prison facility are being forced-fed through the nose to prevent further deterioration of their health conditions.

Despite the official’s claim that only 84 Guantanamo inmates are on hunger strike, a number of the inmates’ defense attorneys have reported that all of the 166 detainees at the military prison have joined the hunger strike.

Boston Marathon bombings vs. the London bombings of 7/7/05

I spent most of last night gripped in the high drama of the manhunt that shut down an entire city. And I couldn't help but think of the similarity between this scenario and the London bombings of 7/7/05.

The things that struck me about the London bombings were the biographical history and odd behavior of the "perpetrators" (like buying return tickets and arguing over change at a petrol station). One of the guys taught disabled children. He was beloved by his students. I'm sorry, that just doesn't fit my mental image of someone who would bomb a random group of people for no apparent reason. Neither did any of the other guys, who most certainly didn't act like people on their way to a suicide bombing judging from the video footage available at the scene.

Here we've got a guy that looks like a modern-day Sylvester Stallone and his kid brother who looks like a heartthrob from a boy band. Neither of these guys look like killers to me. At all. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev reminds me most of London bomber Shehzad Tanweer, a university graduate who studied sports science and loved cricket and football. Here's what people had to say about Shehzad: "The best lad you could ever meet" and "He was proud to be British. He had everything to live for."

What many people don't know is that there was a terror drill being held in London that day. The guys who participated in the London bombing fit the profile of the kinds of guys who would participate in a drill, not actual terrorists. I'm very glad the Boston Police were able to get Dzhokhar Tsarnaev into custody alive. He deserves a trial and we deserve a proper investigation.

Dad says Boston suspects were framed for bombing

Neighbor: Dzhokar was a "lovely kid"

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a 'true angel' to his father and family, friends express shock to hear his alleged role in Boston bombing

Is this how you'd act if you just planted a bomb that killed three people, including an 8-year-old boy???
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev spent an apparently normal day Wednesday at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where he was a sophomore, according to a school official, working out in the gym, then sleeping in his dorm room that night, while law enforcement officials frantically scanned photos trying to identify the men who planted deadly bombs at the Boston Marathon on Monday.

Card swipes told officials that Tsarnaev, described as a good and typical student who played intramural soccer, was on campus Wednesday, but it was not clear if he had been there earlier in the week.

A student, who did not want to be identified, also said she saw Tsarnaev at a party on Wednesday night that was attended by some of his soccer friends.

“He was just relaxed,” she said. --

Hard questions about "wheelchair guy" (caution: graphic link)

I'm sorry if I'm helping to spread disinfo as one of my favorite bloggers, Scott Creighton, suggests, but John Kaminski does raise some valid points. Here's that shocking photo of "wheelchair guy" many of us haven't been able to get out of our mind. "Why is there no trail of blood? Why is he conscious? And why is the knee so far away from his main body?" Maybe the guy in the photo isn't Nick Vogt, double amputee from the Afghan war, but I have to say the blood at the crime scene doesn't look real to me. And what about this weird anomaly on the video Sherrie captured at Sherrie Questioning All?

Sorry if I'm coming across as being cold-hearted and overly analytical. In truth, when I first saw that photo, I was enraged. But then we'd all do well to remember the starving prisoners at Gitmo and dozens of dead and injured people from yesterday's Iranian earthquake, too. Oh wait ... no mention of them in the media? I'm not surprised.

Boston Marathon Explosions: Did some officials think it was a drill?

The more I look at it, that's what it's starting to look like. Check out this video I found at VC:
"A news station interviewed a Boston marathon runner who claimed to have seen bomb sniffing dogs, spotters on roofs and heightened security prior to the explosions. He also reported that officials were yelling 'This is just a drill!' after the first explosion."

And here's an updated story from
Official story unraveling for Boston marathon bombing; clear evidence points to bomb squad's prior knowledge

To which I say, "yeah ... how *did* they know about the bomb at the library, which is a mile away from the race?" I was listening to MSM this morning, and this library thing was later dismissed as being "unrelated" to the attack on the marathon. Really?

Finally, here's a video I found at Norther Truth Seeker's site, where he asks a very good question:
Why Were People Told To "Stay Calm" BEFORE The Bombs Went Off (?)

As always, Kenny comes through with a great article: Boston Black Flag

Explosion at Boston Marathon ... was there a planned drill or wasn't there?

I just found out about the "Terrorist Attack" from, and then parroted what they said at

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."

The question is: Who are the terrorists? It's far too early to take an informed guess on all this. However, it is indisputable that the FBI is actively engaged in carrying out bomb plots in the United States, then halting them at the last minute to "catch the terrorists." This fact has been covered by the New York Times, among other publications.

But now it turns out that tweet came after the "terrorist attack," so the controlled explosion doesn't seem to be a drill at all, but a means to destroy an already existing bomb. Sorry for jumping the gun like that! I'll try to keep on this, but the library's going to be closing pretty soon and I'll have to go home, losing access to this computer.

Gitmo Is Killing Me

Original link

ONE man here weighs just 77 pounds. Another, 98. Last thing I knew, I weighed 132, but that was a month ago.

I’ve been on a hunger strike since Feb. 10 and have lost well over 30 pounds. I will not eat until they restore my dignity.

I’ve been detained at Guantánamo for 11 years and three months. I have never been charged with any crime. I have never received a trial.

I could have been home years ago — no one seriously thinks I am a threat — but still I am here. Years ago the military said I was a “guard” for Osama bin Laden, but this was nonsense, like something out of the American movies I used to watch. They don’t even seem to believe it anymore. But they don’t seem to care how long I sit here, either.

When I was at home in Yemen, in 2000, a childhood friend told me that in Afghanistan I could do better than the $50 a month I earned in a factory, and support my family. I’d never really traveled, and knew nothing about Afghanistan, but I gave it a try.

I was wrong to trust him. There was no work. I wanted to leave, but had no money to fly home. After the American invasion in 2001, I fled to Pakistan like everyone else. The Pakistanis arrested me when I asked to see someone from the Yemeni Embassy. I was then sent to Kandahar, and put on the first plane to Gitmo.

Last month, on March 15, I was sick in the prison hospital and refused to be fed. A team from the E.R.F. (Extreme Reaction Force), a squad of eight military police officers in riot gear, burst in. They tied my hands and feet to the bed. They forcibly inserted an IV into my hand. I spent 26 hours in this state, tied to the bed. During this time I was not permitted to go to the toilet. They inserted a catheter, which was painful, degrading and unnecessary. I was not even permitted to pray.

I will never forget the first time they passed the feeding tube up my nose. I can’t describe how painful it is to be force-fed this way. As it was thrust in, it made me feel like throwing up. I wanted to vomit, but I couldn’t. There was agony in my chest, throat and stomach. I had never experienced such pain before. I would not wish this cruel punishment upon anyone.

I am still being force-fed. Two times a day they tie me to a chair in my cell. My arms, legs and head are strapped down. I never know when they will come. Sometimes they come during the night, as late as 11 p.m., when I’m sleeping.

There are so many of us on hunger strike now that there aren’t enough qualified medical staff members to carry out the force-feedings; nothing is happening at regular intervals. They are feeding people around the clock just to keep up.

During one force-feeding the nurse pushed the tube about 18 inches into my stomach, hurting me more than usual, because she was doing things so hastily. I called the interpreter to ask the doctor if the procedure was being done correctly or not.

It was so painful that I begged them to stop feeding me. The nurse refused to stop feeding me. As they were finishing, some of the “food” spilled on my clothes. I asked them to change my clothes, but the guard refused to allow me to hold on to this last shred of my dignity.

When they come to force me into the chair, if I refuse to be tied up, they call the E.R.F. team. So I have a choice. Either I can exercise my right to protest my detention, and be beaten up, or I can submit to painful force-feeding.

The only reason I am still here is that President Obama refuses to send any detainees back to Yemen. This makes no sense. I am a human being, not a passport, and I deserve to be treated like one.

I do not want to die here, but until President Obama and Yemen’s president do something, that is what I risk every day.

Where is my government? I will submit to any “security measures” they want in order to go home, even though they are totally unnecessary.

I will agree to whatever it takes in order to be free. I am now 35. All I want is to see my family again and to start a family of my own.

The situation is desperate now. All of the detainees here are suffering deeply. At least 40 people here are on a hunger strike. People are fainting with exhaustion every day. I have vomited blood.

And there is no end in sight to our imprisonment. Denying ourselves food and risking death every day is the choice we have made.

I just hope that because of the pain we are suffering, the eyes of the world will once again look to Guantánamo before it is too late.

Samir Naji al Hasan Moqbel, a prisoner at Guantánamo Bay since 2002, told this story, through an Arabic interpreter, to his lawyers at the legal charity Reprieve in an unclassified telephone call.

The wonderful tipping point I need to remember ...

I was dully aware when I put up my last post that I was kind of violating my New Year's resolution to accentuate the positive and not give in to fear-mongering. I mean, it's important to call attention to the things that are wrong, but only in so far as we have to do this to make them right. You can't fix a problem if you deny that it exists. I don't know how many people realize that the DHS recently bought millions and millions of hollow-point bullets, but it does kind of seem to be fear-mongering, doesn't it? And fear-mongering for the sake of fear-mongering is absolutely useless, even though misery loves company. Yeah, okay, be prepared but don't let fear take control of your life. Sometimes I have trouble with that. So anyway, here's a positive video to kind of counter-act that last bit of negativity. I do believe we're on some kind of a threshold in this respect as well. Hat tip to Zen Gardener.

DHS Refuses to Answer Congress on 1.6 Billion Bullet Purchase (video)

At CPAC, Luke Rudkowski of We Are Change asks Congressman Tim Huelscamp about the constitutionality of indefinite detention and his decision to vote against the NDAA. They also discuss Obama's Disposition Matrix (kill list), and the incredibly massive and clandestine ammunition purchases by the Dept. of Homeland Security. (H/T: What Really Happened)

On a personal note, you all know I've been anxious and depressed for a while but I have a particularly bad feeling about this month. Historically, a lot of bad crap usually takes place around the 19th or 20th of April. If you've been worried about "the other shoe dropping", now would be a good time to prepare.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights calls for closure of Guantanamo prison

This just in from The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay has called for the closure of the United States’ infamous Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, saying the ongoing indefinite incarceration of many of the prisoners is "in clear breach of international law."

It's been 2 months since the beginning of the hunger strike. The apologists are out and about, and I see that as a positive sign that word is finally getting around. The truth of the matter is, Obama *can't* shut down Gitmo, or these guys might actually be able to somehow talk to the press, and we'll all find out how badly they've been tortured, some of that torture being used shamelessly to sell the public on war and cover up what really happened on 9-11-01.

Finally, here are some quotes I gleaned over here:

"To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them."
- George Mason

"A government resting on the minority is an aristocracy, not a Republic, and could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press and a disarmed populace."
- James Madison

"Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined.... The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun."
- Patrick Henry

"The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms."
- Samuel Adams

Exposing the fraud of 9/11 in 22 minutes (video)

I found this over at Goon Squad. I thought it was particularly well-done so I'm reposting it here. Hope you all had a happy weekend filled with family and friends.
