Boston marathon bombs were pressure cooker IEDs packed with ball-bearings: Deadly devices that killed three and injured 176 are used by terrorists in Afghanistan
Investigators do not know of motive for the bombs or who is behind them but are questioning ‘many people’ BOMBS ARE used in Afghanistan but THEY dont know who did it? LETTING YOU MAKE YOUR OWN MIND UP .
The cruelly-designed bombs have ‘frequently’ been used in Afghanistan, India, Nepal and Pakistan, according to a 2010 Homeland Security Department pamphlet – hinting at the origins of the bombers behind the worst terrorist atrocity in the U.S. since 9/11.
When the devices exploded near the crowded Boston Marathon finish line around 2.50pm on Monday, victims suffered as many as 40 shrapnel wounds each and at least 10 people needed amputations. Witnesses described seeing body parts flying through the air and shoes that ‘still had flesh in them’.
This afternoon, a second victim killed in the blasts was identified as 29-year-old Krystle Campbell, from Arlington, Massachusetts. It comes after another was named as eight-year-old Martin Richard. The third victim has not yet been named.
The bombs used to kill and maim are believed to have contained black powder or gunpowder as the explosive, and information on how to make such a bomb is available on the internet, experts said. The devices were then left at the scene to look like discarded property, CBS News reported.
Investigators have also found pieces of an electronic circuit board which could indicate a timer was used in the detonation.
Members of the armed forces present at the Boston Marathon rush to help those stricken by the bomb attack today at the finish line. IS THAT PICTURE A SUBLIMINAL WITH THIS HEADLINE IN THE UK MAIL ARE THEY SUBLIMINALLY SENDING A MESSAGE TO AMERICA.
BOSTON MARATHON CONSPIRACY here we go again
Here we go again the agents of fortune have pulled off another one. While eyes were cast across the Pacific on North Korea, we got another taste of home grown ‘terrorism.’ The only thing is it plays like a broken record, and we have heard the tune so many times we can hum it without music. Of course the first item on the secret agenda is the infamous drill. Yes. You guessed it. The Boston Police were running a drill and constantly warning the public that there would be a ‘controlled’ demolition. That seems a wee bit odd that while Boston is inundated with tourists and spectators, that such a risk would be taken. Maybe it was just to throw off the scent of the dogs which were at the start and the finish lines. Placated by their masters to think the ominous odours were company equipment.
“Are we glad we’re not sniffing where the bombs were planted.”
Anguished mother Liz Norden is comforted by relative Jim Casey as she waits on word about her two sons, each of whom lost a leg in the attacks near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. There were 176 people injured in the dual blasts, 17 of whom critically and up to 10 people had limbs torn off. There were nine children injured, including 11-year-old Aaron Hern, who had shrapnel tear into his leg while waiting for his mother to finish the race. An orthopedic surgeon at New England Baptist Hospital in Roxbury Crossing, Mass., said he saw injuries along the sidewalks on Boylston Street. ‘In all my medical training, I have not seen things that I saw. Everything was traumatic,’ he said
