    There is footage of it on Communist News Network; people are definitely dead. Nobody is saying what exactly it was but looks pretty bad.

    Fox had a camera in the middle of the aftermath in the ground. Chilling footage.

    Well, it seems pretty clear that this was an attack, not an accident. One blast was in a building, the second blast across the street on the street.

    Fox News gets a bum rap, but Shep Smith is pretty good on this stuff. He's mentioned it, but is not connecting it.

    Absolutely horrible. Why anyone would attack innocent people for seemingly political purposes makes no sense to me.

    I hope the perpetrators rot in hell.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.

    NBC reporting now that a small homemade bomb was responsible for at least one of the explosions.

    My thoughts are with all down there; I actually have a couple of friends competing in the marathon...fuck I hope they're ok.

    I know the knee jerk emotion is to cite an attack - however do we have any confirmation?

    No confirmation, just signs point toward more toward the attack side than accident side.
