It could also be a domestic terrorist; let's not forget Timothy McVeigh. I remember people thought it might have been islamic terrorists when it first happened b/c of the First World Trade Center bombing in 1993. We'll see what happens. Either way, it further illustrates why noone in their right mind would want to be President of the US (too many headaches).My bet a 'Sand Flea" A few I missed during the Gulf War
I wonder if this was because the attack didn't seem that "flashy". Yes, the venue was public (oldest marathon in America) but it wasn't say at the beginning when there are hoards of runners milling about just packed in like sardines. A crazy amount of folks were maimed but considering how dense even these crowds were, it's surprising to me that only 2 ppl have died so far. Given the carnage we've seen out of Iraq/Afghanistan, I think a foreign trained terrorist would have done far more damage. This also makes me believe the terrorist is home grown.Don't ask me why, but I was thinking the same thing when I first heard the news. :thumbsd:
Yes, prayers for all those affected by yesterdays bombings.
The anniversary was the 15th. Also Boston's Patriot's Day. I remember originally thinking the 9/11 attacks were domestic terror because Terry Nichols of the OKC bombing was supposed to be sentenced along the same time frame.North Korea has marked the 101st anniversary of the birthday of its late founder, Kim Il Sung, but did not carry out a missile test that many expected. Analysts say it's too soon to know if North Korea’s recent provocations have ended.

I really had a strange feeling while watching the coverage of the Texas fertilizer plant explosion last night. It seemed too coincidental.
I'm a little more optimistic on this one. I'm pretty sure that they will be able to figure out what went wrong even if the poor souls closest to the accident (and potentially to blame are no longer around.Coincidental things happen some times.
Unfortunatly with the Texas explosion anyone close enough to tell how or where this fire started is probably dead. And all, if any, evidence of a malicious cause of this fire is surely destroyed.
Determining the source of the Texas explosion will indeed be much more difficult to establish.
Thanks Darren!May peace surround you Boston and your people.
