Ben Swann On The Boston Bombing


…They are saying this will put the issue of terrorism back at the forefront of political discourse and the public mind.

  • 9 A.M. – The 2013 Boston Marathon begins.
  • 11:58 A.M. – Rita Jeptoo of Kenya becomes the women’s winner, crossing the finish line with a time of 2:26:25.
  • 12:10 P.M. – Men’s winner Lelisa Desisa, of Ethiopia, finishes with a time of 2:10:22.
  • 2:50 P.M.  – Two blasts go off only seconds apart at the finish line, less than 100 yards from each other on the north side of Boylston Street.
  • 3 P.M. – A fire breaks out in the mechanical room at the JFK Presidential Library, but is reportedly not related to the explosions at the marathon.
  • 3:34 P.M. – The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority announces multiple sections of the Green Line will be suspended due to police activity.
  • 4:02 P.M. – The first official reports from the Boston Police Department list two dead and 23 injured.
  • 4:30 P.M. – A third blast goes off near the JFK Library though no one is injured. Authorities say the explosion is being treated as an ‘ongoing event.’
  • 4:30 P.M. – Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis holds a press conference urging people to remain indoors and not congregate in large groups.
  • 5:23 P.M. – The fire in the JFK Library is put out.
  • 6:10 P.M. – President Barack Obama addresses the nation, vowing: ‘We’ll find out who did this. We’ll find out why they did this.’
  • 6:30 P.M. – One of the dead is reported to be an 8-year-old boy.

Those three hours of delay are very telling. There were much fewer fans standing around at the finish line 3 hours after the race was over so by detonating these explosives at that time, countless lives were saved.  The VIPs were not involved, nor the press. It would be a hard sell to suggest that radicalized homegrown terrorists didn’t want the biggest body-count and to have VIPs included in it….

You know about the Boston terror attack.

There have also been terrorist incidents today – in which no one has been hurt – in California and Washington D.C.

Specifically, CNN reports that an envelope containing the lethal poison Ricin was mailed to Capitol Hill. It was addressed to Republican Senator Roger Wicker of Mississippi, but was intercepted at the U.S. Capitol’s off-site mail facility in Washington.

And CBS San Francisco, ABC 7, KTVU, NBC Bay Area, the San Jose Mercury News and other media outlets are reporting that someone using a high-powered rifle fired bullets at a Pacific Gas & Electric substation near San Jose, California, causing damage (including a leak of 10,000 gallons of oil) and a statewide emergency alert to conserve energy.
