BOSTON TERROR ATTACKS: Al-Jazeera

The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “Investigators hunt for clues in Boston blasts” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/americas/2013/04/201341664139178838.html). 

“Police and federal officials search house in connection with bombing that left three dead and more than 100 wounded”.

“Investigators are searching for the person or group responsible for planting two bombs at the Boston Marathon finish line that killed three people and wounded more than 100 others”.

“Police and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) officials searched a house in connection with the bombings late on Monday (April 15, 2013). Massachusetts state police have confirmed that a warrant was served to search the property in the suburb of Revere in Boston”.

“Law enforcement agencies are hunting for clues, while critically wounded victims of Monday’s (April 15 2013) blasts fight for their lives and others CONTEMPLATING (?) a new life as amputees“. “contemplating?” We have to PRESERVE DIGNITY for all the survivors of this horrible attack.

The bombs RIPPED THROUGH THE CROWD at the finish line of the Boston Marathon, SHATTERING the annual civic celebration on the Patriot Day state holiday, while TENS OF THOUSANDS of people PACKED THE STREETS to cheer on the runners“. This is precisely the location and gathering that terrorists would want to attack.

The two devices using gunpowder as explosives were packed with ball bearings and other shrapnel to MAXIMIZE injuries, a senior law enforcement official, who declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the case, briefed on the investigation”. Obviously terrorists want to “maximize injuries” and obviously this case/issue is VERY/EXTREMELY “sensitive”. 

“No one has been arrested in regard to the bombing. A White House official said the case would be treated as “an act of TERRORISM“, but it had yet to be determined whether the attack came from a foreign or domestic source”. OBVIOUSLY, this was “an act of terrorism”.

“President Barack Obama promised to catch whoever was responsible. “We still don’t know who did this or why“…Make no mistake: WE WILL GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THIS“.

According to Richard DesLauriers, “the FBI special agent in charge for Boston”, “It is a criminal investigation that is A POTENTIAL TERRORIST INVESTIGATION“.

“As many as two unexploded bombs were also found near the end of course as part of what appeared to be a well-co-ordinated attack, but they were safely disarmed, according to a senior US intelligence official, who also spoke on condition of anonymity because of the continuing investigation”.

Many runners were heading for the finish (line) when a FIREBALL and SMOKE rose from behind cheering spectators and a row of flags representing the countries of participants, video from the scene showed”.
“The two explosions came moments apart four hours and nine minutes into the race, long after the WORLD CLASS runners had finished but around the time average contestants were arriving”. Again this is exactly what the terrorists intended because most “contestants” are “average” and NOT “world-class”.
 
According to Joe Anderson, 33, “a fisherman from Pembroke, Massachusetts, who had just run the race holding a large US flag”, “”I saw people who looked like they had their LEGS BLOWN OFF. There was A LOT OF BLOOD over their legs. Then people were being PUSHED IN WHEELCHAIRS“. 
 
“Many of the victims were GRAVE injured, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick said”.
 
“Some suffered SHRAPNEL wounds and AMPUTATIONS and will require REPEAT operations in the coming days, said Peter Fagenholz, a trauma surgeon at Massachusetts General Hospital”.
 
“Doctors treated 29 patients including eight who were in CRITICAL condition, Fagenholz said”.

“Many of the SERIOUSLY injured patients had suffered bone, soft tissue and VASCULAR damage to their legs, he said”. Obviously, “vascular damage” is THE MOST worrying/troublesome description. “We’re seeing a lot of SHRAPNEL injuries” from small metal debris” obviously, AS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI).

 
“The dead included an EIGHT-year-old boy, the Boston Globe reported, citing two law enforcement sources briefed on the investigation”. AgainTHIS IS HORRIFYINGNO CHILD SHOULD LOSE HIS LIFE LIKE THIS AND NO PARENT SHOULD HAVE THEIR CHILD TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM IN SUCH A BRUTAL MANNER/FASHION.

“A TWO-year-old with a HEAD injury was being treated at Boston Children’s Hospital, the hospital said in a statement”. Again, this just makes us SICK TO OUR STOMACHS.

“The blasts put police on alert in major cities across the US, including in Washington, DC, and New York City, sites of the September 11 (2001) attacks”ALL big US cities should be on a heightened state of alert, especially those with big airports, including LOS ANGELESLet’s remind ourselves that one of the hijacked planes on September 11 2001 took off from Boston’s LOGAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT bound for LOS ANGELES (LAX): AMERICAN AIRLINES FLIGHT 11 (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Airlines_Flight_11).  

“The annual Boston Marathon, held since 1897, attracts an estimated HALF-MILLION spectators and about 20,000 participants every year”Again, this is exactly the type of LARGE GATHERING that terrorists would want to target for their attacks.

 
Several competitors and race organizers were crying as they FLED THE CHAOS“.
 
According to “one man, whose running number 17528 identified him as Frank Deruyter”, “There are a lot of people DOWN” obviously PSYCHOLOGICALLY and LITERALLY from shrapnel going everywhere/flying in all directions.
 

“Runners who had not finished the race were diverted straight down Commonwealth Avenue and into a family meeting area, according to an emergency plan that had been in place. The race was later abandoned” obviously for SECURITY REASONS.

Finally, “Al Jazeera‘s Josh Rushing, reporting from downtown Boston, said that there were a number of people there with “just a SHOCKED look on their faceand JUSTIFIABLY SO. “I think everyone is trying to put the MEDIA pieces back together and TRY to figure out how they are going to MOVE FORWARD” because this certainly sounds like A 9/11 in BOSTON IF ATTACKERS COULD PLAN AN ATTACK IN THAT TOWN and that is obviously EXTREMELY troubling.
