    That sucks. I pray for the family and friends of the dead and speedy recovery for the survivors.

    I am guessing two backpack bombs. Those would probably be unnoticed in that type of crowd. I hope LE finds the individuals that did this. Cowards.

    CNN reports VP Joe Biden referred to the incident as "bombings".

    Father of Four said it better than I could...they have my prayers

    Thatcher's funeral is today, but it seems they would have targeted somewhere in Great Britain.

    Its also patriots day in MA.

    And it was bombings there were two spaced explosions. The Huge plume of white smoke and reports of a strong sulpher smell as well as the large flame ball in the explosion shown on NBC would all be indicative of a Black Powder based bomb. Though there are other chemical combinations that would look similar.

    Adding too, this is what happens in European countries, same MO. Our country has continued to mimic those countries, now we are seeing the effects of those ideas

    According to BPD radio feed, there is a yellow Penske Rental Truck en route to Boston that is of interest. FBI is requesting the truck be located and stopped. Driver apparently claimed he is transporting medical supplies.

    As this happened only minutes ago, the how's and why's can go a million directions.
    To me it would be unusual for any established organization to not claim responsibility within a short time after the event. The longer we go without someone taking responsibility the more I would suspect a home grown nutball/unibomber type.

    Also reporting now a third explosion at the JFK Library.

    Lets pray that Boston LE uses their professionalism and wits and don't do anything stupid like shooting innocent trucks and people.

    Get the bad guys though!!!!

    I think there were to many explosive devices involved for 1 person on one day.

    Prayers for the victims and families.

    Looks like the JFK library fire that started in a camera room is a coincidence.
