Boston bombing, evening thread: “Clearly an act of terror,” says WH official; Update: At least 132 injured; Update: Five undetonated devices?; Update: 3 reported dead

posted at 7:11 pm on April 15, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Picking up from Allahpundit’s thread, we so far have one White House official calling this an act of terror, and reports that there were up to five devices triggered remotely. The Associated Press has the latest injury count:

Update: Rep. Mike McCaul, the House Homeland Security Committee chairman, noted on Fox News that if the reports of ball bearings are indeed true, “I would consider that a significant factor in terms of this being a sort IED device that’s very similar to what the terrorists used overseas in the Middle East.”

Update: I have no words.

The head of an extremist Jordanian Muslim Salafi group said early Tuesday that he was “happy to see the horror in America” after the explosions in Boston.

“American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” said Mohammad al-Chalabi, who was convicted in an al-Qaida-linked plot to attack U.S. and other Western diplomatic missions in Jordan in 2003.

Update: Boston’s mayor is getting ready to speak; watch it live here.

Update:

And:

Update: Report from NBC that there’s still no definite suspect in custody:

Update: Michael Moore adds his input. Unbelievable.

Update: No changes in D.C.’s plans so far, per Politico:

D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray assured the public at a press conference Monday that Emancipation Day celebrations will continue as usual, though security measures will be heightened as a matter of course.

“We have no changes in plans at this stage. We hope people will continue to come down and engage in this important celebration,” Gray said. “We plan to go forward as we planned prior to this incident in Boston.” …

“We don’t know any information that would suggest that there’s a specific threat…in the District of Colombia,” he said. “But we believe that we’re well prepared to be able to defend the 632,000 people who live here and the many thousands of people who visit this city especially during this time of year.”

Update: The Pentagon has a Navy bomb squad to the scene to help:

The Navy has sent one of its bomb-disposal units to Boston to assist local authorities as needed in the aftermath of the two explosions near the Boston Marathon’s finish line. The blasts killed two and injured more than 100. The three-member explosive ordnance disposal team based at Naval Station Newport, R.I., was sent to Massachusetts after state officials asked for help.

Update:

Update:

Update: The AP is reporting that 124 are injured, 15 critically.

Update: From the WSJ:

Sen. Susan Collins (R., Maine), an intelligence committee member and former chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee said: “I believe the attacks bear all the hallmarks of a terrorist attack.’’

Update: CNN is increasing the injury count to 132 people, 17 of them critically, and a source tells them that doctors are pulling ball bearings out of people.

[Update, 7:57 p.m. ET] Doctors are “pulling ball bearings out of people in the emergency room,” a terrorism expert briefed on the investigation told CNN’s Deborah Feyerick.

The same source said the blasts resulted in at least 10 lost limbs.

Update:

Update: Statement from DHS Secretary Napolitano:

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by this incident in Boston, especially the families and loved ones of those injured. Federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies continue to respond and at the President’s direction, the Department of Homeland Security is providing any support necessary in this ongoing investigation. We encourage the public to be vigilant, and to listen to direction from state and local officials.”

Update: The WSJ reports that authorities have now found five devices that never went off, which makes for a total of seven devices including the two explosions:

Update: Gov. Deval Patrick just spoke, confirming that the FBI is has taken over the investigation, and that there will be a heightened law enforcement presence in Boston tomorrow.

Update: The Boston police report that the death toll has gone up from two to three:

And that there is no definite suspect at Brigham and Women’s Hospital:

Per CNN:

[Update, 8:55 p.m. ET] A Saudi national with a leg wound was under guard at a Boston hospital in connection with the bombings at the Boston Marathon, but investigators cannot say he is involved at this time and he is not in custody, a law enforcement official said Monday evening.

Update: New reports coming in that those five suspicious devices might not, in fact, have been bombs:

Update: Hmmm — another press conference on the way?

Update: Per Fox25, A doctor from Brigham and Women’s Hospital just confirmed that they have treated several dozen of the explosions’ victims for injuries consistent with a heavy blast, but haven’t had any fatalities at their hospital.

Update: And another surgeon at Mass General Hospital confirms that 8 of their patients are currently in critical condition:

[Update, 10:07 p.m. ET] Dr. Peter Fagenholz told reporters that there were 29 wounded people at Massachusetts General Hospital, eight of whom were in critical condition. Many of the people had shrapnel injuries to their lower extremites, he said.

“We have performed several amputations,” he said.

UK Daily Mail : may be foreign national

Police are seeking a suspect in the Boston bombings who is described as a ‘dark-skinned or black male’ carrying a backpack, while authorities are also reportedly questioning a potential suspect at an area hospital, according to reports.

The suspect at large was spotted at the scene of the twin explosions at the Boston Marathon finish line on Monday and he wearing a black sweatshirt with a hood, according to authorities. Five minutes before the first explosion, officials said the person attempted to gain entry to a restricted area and was turned away. Authorities say he may be a foreign national, based on his accent.

Not widely reported here, but from the UK Guardian today, trial winding up for these two

Covert recordings were made of Zahid Iqbal, 31, and Mohammed Sharfaraz Ahmed, 25, discussing the plan, with the explosives made following instructions from a terrorism manual called Make a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom.

“They discussed making an IED [improvised explosive device] following instructions from an Inspire magazine which they planned to adapt,” Hill said. “They also identified a target for such an attack, namely a Territorial Army base in their locality, although they discussed targeting multiple sites at one time.”

A search of Iqbal’s house found a hard drive containing a number of items including a copy of 44 Ways to Support Jihad, by Anwar al-Awlaki, the court heard.

Murder is a cottage industry in the right circles

If anyone doesn’t like the extra (temporary) security measures employed by the MBTA, they can walk. They will not happen forever. NY stopped doing it a long time ago. But, in the aftermath of what happened today, it’s a prudent move. As far as everyone packing, it’s a nice thought. In theory. I’m not sure, however, how a well-armed populace would shoot back at a bomb blast.

Of course this is beyond awful. And any injuries or deaths are totally unacceptable. But what I keep thinking is that this could have been so much worse.

Yeah.

I just figure they’re trying to investigate while simultaneously working with the feds to craft a narrative for the party that will benefit its Dear Leader and harm his political opposition. Hard to keep it all straight, I guess, when the fed’s go-to position is to lie.

This is serious and high profile, so it is an “anthropogenic lethal incident”, not to be confused with the lesser “indiscriminate act of sportsplace violence.”

ROCnPhilly on April 15, 2013 at 10:57 PM

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.”

Use Ghostery and NoScript and you’re set.

NoScript will block everything that uses Java (“scripts”) but you can customize it per sites you visit and/or globally. These two additions to Firefox remove nearly all the gunk on sites that are inconvenient or downright harmful.
