Can the runners still finish to get their official times?

I started and restarted posting 3 or 4 times....  

For today, I will pray for the victims, and be thankful that more people weren't injured or killed.

Third device being reported at the Boston JFK library with no injuries.


Damn.  Just damn.

Feeling the usual relief-then-pseudo-guilt-at-feeling-relieved to hear there's a probable Islamic/middle eastern connection with the suspect.

It is "tax day" after all, and the MSM was starting to speculate.

Silver lining.

JFK is now being reported as just a fire or related to a fire.

I'm in the same boat.

 Would they really be all that bothered if they can't, given the circumstances?

CBS and ABC are also saying that it's not a bomb at the libary.

It was a fire in a mechanical room (according to CBS)

And no mention of suspects being held.

North Korea had better NOT launch a damned thing, today.  Or anytime soon.  I somehow don't think they'd much like the response.

That said, we'll have to wait and see (as per usual, with these kinds of incidents) and see just what exactly happened and who is reponsible.  Plus, to see if this is over or just the beginning.

It only took CNN a few minute to start talking about the explosion looking like black powder and the the fact that it is Patriot's Day there.

But of course that was followed up by "We can't jump to conclusions."

What if we tried more?

Just saw it, same thoughts, low order explosions.


It would have been a lot bigger than what I just saw if it was someone with even a modicum of training.


TNT or C4 would have been much larger. Half a kilogram can demolish an uparmored humvee. Low frequency boom, lots of smoke, limited frag range. SWAG: pipe bomb with either smokeless or black powder.

I did demo training as part of my MOS school. TNT especially isn't as big as you're indicating.

Can the runners still finish to get their official times?

The faster runners had already finished. Those who were still on the course were being diverted away from the finish line area so, no, they won't be allowed to finish and get an official time. The organizers aborted the race.

You give this administration too much credit. Remember, a sovereign nation allowed our ambassador to be ripped from the consulate, buggered and murdered, and we did jack diddle *expletive deleted*it.

Actually, the administration did do something about it. They said, "who cares?"

Sure they did something - before the attack they reduced security (to make the Libyans feel better about our trusting them), they denied additional security when requested, and by some accounts - admittedly uncorroborated - they prevented a US military response during the attack.

FNC reporting over 70 injuries.  Two more devices are being reported, doesn't sound like they were detonated.
