From the moment this happened, we have been simultaneously watching the mainstream news channels and have already come to the conclusion that this is a false-flag event to blame on “domestic terrorists”. However, it seems like the rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper.
As the Boston Globe tweeted today, “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”
The 117th Boston Marathon takes place on Monday.
Here & Now’s Alex Ashlock has been speaking to some of the top runners and joins us from race headquarters to tell us what he’s hearing.
He’ll also tell us about one of the many groups running for charity: Team NewtownSTRONG.
The team is running to support NewtownSTRONG, a charitable foundation raising scholarship money for the siblings of children lost in the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. on December 14, 2012.
“In the first 20 miles we’re honoring our 20 Sandy Hook first graders, and when we crest Heartbreak Hill and we’re coming back towards Boston, we run the final six for our six fallen educators who gave everything of themselves, including their lives, to protect our children,” said Laura Nowacki, who is part of the team, and whose fourth grade daughter survived the shooting.
Dozens reported injured, Copley Square area evacuated. Newtown runners reportedly safe.
A team of Sandy Hook parents are reportedly safe following the explosions that have reportedly killed two and injured dozens at the Boston Marathon.
The team included parent Laura Nowacki, whose daughter survived the Dec. 14 shooting. Before the race, Nowacki told WBUR “In the first 20 miles we’re honoring our 20 Sandy Hook first graders, and when we crest Heartbreak Hill and we’re coming back towards Boston, we run the final six for our six fallen educators who gave everything of themselves, including their lives, to protect our children.”
NewtownSTRONG representative Scott Johnson told Patch he has been informed by Nowacki that the runners are safe. According to the marathon’s website, five other Newtown runners were participating in the race. No word is available yet.
The final mile of the Boston Marathon was dedicated to Newtown, and a 26-second moment of silence opened the event. Newtown families were reportedly in VIP stands near the site of the explosion, but uninjured in the blast, according to MSN.

Stay tuned for more updates on this false flag event…
According to the AP:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Cellphone companies say service is operating in the Boston area, but with heavy traffic following of the explosions at the Boston Marathon.
A law enforcement official, citing an intelligence briefing, said cellphone service had been shut down Monday in the Boston area to prevent any potential remote detonations of explosives.
Apparently, the mainstream media has been censoring the blood and gore (which could explain why it’s so clean-looking, for the most part):
Boston marathon runner Alastair Stevenson says that as the explosions erupted at the Boston Marathon this morning, he was told by police over the loud speaker that the events were ‘just a drill’. :
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
“They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He’s been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise,” Stevenson said. “I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.”
CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.
Police clear the area at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon.
Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
Fox News reported that the suspect suffered severe burns.
It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.
The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.
