"Contractors" at Boston Marathon Stood Near Bomb, Left Before Detonation

(Photos) Seen across street after blasts talking with FBI bomb squad. Who were they? What were they and the FBI doing?

What appear to be private contractors, wearing unmarked, matching uniforms and operating an unmarked SUV affixed with communication equipment near the finish line of the Boston Marathon shortly after the bomb blasts - can be seen beforehand, standing and waiting just meters away from where the first bomb was detonated. The contractor-types had moved away from the bomb's location before it detonated, and could be seen just across the street using communication equipment and waiting for similar dressed and equipped individuals to show up after the blasts.

Image: An already widely distributed photo showing the contractor-types on the bottom left, just left of where the bomb was placed and detonated.

The men are wearing matching, unmarked uniforms, large black bags, and appear to be waiting, separately, and "behind" the rest of the crowd. In the upper left corner, a wooden structure forming one half of a temporary photography "bridge" over the finish line can be seen and serves as a useful reference when establishing the contractor-types' position in other photos.

Image: After the explosion, two of the contractors seen by the wall next to the bomb, appear across the street, both using communication equipment. This photo too has been distributed and enlarged many times across the Internet. (click to enlarge)

Image: An unmarked SUV with a considerable amount of communication gear on the roof appears, surrounded by identically dressed men. The vehicle parks near the bleachers. (click to enlarge)

Image: Event staff and contractors both above and below the bleachers begin tearing up the skirting and appear to be looking for something or retrieving something while casualties are still being treated and evacuated across the street. (click to enlarge)

The men, numbering between 6-8 then begin tearing up the skirting around temporary bleachers erected for the event, opposite the explosion, before taping it off. Then, what appears to be an FBI bomb squad truck pulls up directly behind the contractor-types' SUV, with a woman clearly wearing the letters F.B.I. on her tactical vest emerging and speaking with the contractor-types. Together they disappear from the scene, leaving their vehicles behind.

She talks with two contractors while it appears a third is partially in the truck's right-hand side. Also note that the area contractors and event staff tore up, is now taped off. (click to enlarge)

Image: The FBI truck and contractor SUV sit seemingly abandoned - neither the FBI agent, nor the contractors can be seen. What they did, or where they went remains so far, unknown. (click to enlarge)

It should be noted, that with the exception of the contractor-types, all other responders at the scene, including the FBI agent, can be clearly identified, from police to the fire department, to medics and even individuals wearing vests with "B.A.A. Physician" written on them. It should also be noted that no other uniformed individuals can be seen standing near the bomb site aside from the contractor-types.

These men were unidentified, professional contractors apparently augmenting public servants at the Boston Marathon, present before and after the bomb blasts in the direct vicinity of the incident. After the blasts, whether it was their intended function or not, they appeared to be searching for something under the bleachers before being joined by what appears to be the FBI bomb squad. The FBI and the city of Boston has so far categorically failed to provide any information on these highly suspicious individuals.

Questions That Must be Answered 

Several questions must be answered by the FBI, leading the investigation on behalf of we, the American people. The first question is who these men were, with large, black bags in the direct vicinity of where a bomb would detonate, moving away before the blast, and appearing directly across the road afterward. Who hired them and what was their function? Why were they moving amongst the crowd in a semi-covert fashion when all other public servants present were wearing proper uniforms and clearly identified? Did police, firefighters, event organizers, and medics know these men were present and what they were doing?

Why did it appear that the FBI was fully aware of their presence, and in fact working with them, specifically with what looks like a bomb squad unit? Were these contractors specialists in explosives, and if so, what is the significance that at least two of them were spotted just meters from where the blast occurred?

Why These Questions Demand Answers

The checkered, frightening history (see: FBI's History of Handing "Terror Suspects" Live Explosives) of the FBI's involvement in fomenting false terror attacks, and even presiding over attacks that succeeded in maiming and killing innocent people, should call into question their presence or involvement at any public event, especially when seen associating with unidentified, semi-clandestine organizations that appear to be private contractors.

Private contractors as well, do not answer or work for the public, but rather the highest bidder. Private contractors, most notably Blackwater and its various incarnations have operated both domestically and abroad, committing obscene crimes and atrocities with seemingly absolute impunity. The term "defense contractor" is in fact a euphemism for mercenary, and has no place in a civilized, democratic world, no matter what their alleged mission statement may claim.

That both of these nefarious entities were present and cooperating in the direct vicinity of the Boston bombings, with at least two contractors standing just meters away from where the bomb actually went off, raises a number of possibilities and concerns. A drill may have been conducted, though the FBI and city officials have denied this. Or, a threat may have been communicated to event organizers ahead of time, which prompted the inclusion of "auxiliary" security, though again, both the FBI and the city of Boston deny receiving any information prior to the bombings. Whichever contracting firm this may have been, may just have wanted to swindle Boston's taxpayers for an easy payday, and coincidentally found itself in the middle of extraordinary circumstances.

However, alarming suspicion is raised when the FBI makes no mention of an organization it was clearly coordinating with, particularly in terms of bombs and explosives before and after the incident, considering the nature of the attack. When an already dubious organization attempts to obfuscate the facts of any given event, it is the right and responsibility of legitimate law enforcement, public representatives and the citizenry itself to demand and get answers. If we are not persistent, with the FBI's bizarre behavior over the past few days, including inexplicably cancelled and suspiciously rushed press conferences, and now what appears to be a Hollywood ending for the case, we may never get those answers.

Well, the only problem I have now is that they both still have their backpacks.

Why is all the glass from the Restaurant window on the outside of the Restaurant. Looks like the bomb was inside no?

CCTV inside the Restaurant?

Anthony Jacob WoolstonWe have it! The boston bombing was a false flag."WARNING: Laws being written to screw you. I work on a security commission and I've just recived word to start campaigning on a campaign we've been working on for the last two months and now it all makes sense.I'll keep it as short as I canThey're going to pin this on a male in his late teens to early 20's and say he did it because he's unstable. They are going to find firearms and a NRA book in his home. They are going to say he used reloading powder for the explosion and that reloading powder shouldn't be for sale to the public. They are then going to say that because the powder in ammunition can be used for explosions that the number of rounds you can buy should be limited and taxed to help pay for these events. I can't do anything or I'll loose my job and psossibly face criminal charges. Please don't let them get away with it. They won't find the suspect till later this week and the raid is issued to occur on Friday. This was a staged event. The people hurt are real but the event was planned. Don't let them hurt your rights.I'm at work so I used a copy of a picture from another thread. Also please don't mention me. It will seriously hurt me."Dennis J.

The explosion feeds on oxygen, therefore windows can be sucked in, not blown in.

This really bothers me!
Ok these two teens were warned about as a set on April the 15th there taking the fall there going to use there BS gun control on it too.
Both of them were betrayed.
The real group behind the attack is Black Water and Mossad.
The FBI, CIA, DHS, MOSSAD, there all part of the same group!
And what bothers me is everyone most everyone is going to buy the BS about two teens being behind this bombing.

There going to believe that when the whole thing was staged from the beginning with bomb drill.

I would expect the XE/CIA terrorists would use this as an excuse to blame a Syrian to help justify the ongoing PNAC efforts to force regime change in 6-7 countries as repeatedly expressed by political/military since the Israeli attack of 2001. REAL terrorists target politicians, oligarchs and TPTB not innocent civilians. And as 'our politicians' are continually violating their oaths of office by shredding our constitutional rights and swearing allegiance to a foreign power in order to be 'elected' they should be considered criminal terrorists and dealt with as such.

Those aren't contractors their special ops, the logo on their hats was a blackwater like logo - contractors don't wear matching shoes and pants. They were there to watch the patsies drop off the bad - they were there to oversee.

With all the presence of official "ops" personnel and unofficial "ops" personnel one has to wonder about the expectations for an incident. Given that, the glaring ommission in virtually ALL the photos is the absence of Bomb Dogs. Large amounts of black powder in a cooker type container would have been an easy mark for dogs. Why no dogs????????

I don't know if they're getting quite as much traction with this event as they would have liked. If this was meant to be 9/11 2.0, I think instead it's proving itself to be 9/11 Vista.

Time makes a mockery of all things eventually I suppose.

On CNN the suspect's Mom just said live on the air that the FBI was counseling the older brother for 3/5 years. They cut her off mid-sentence.

She said it was impossible that her sons could do this.

Those people arnt contractors you morons, they are federal agents. One of the pictures even clearly shows the badge on their chest. They are most likely part of a Vipr team (Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response team) which are federal agents with DHS and they frequent big events like this one along with baseball games and anything that draws a crowd. The most common clothes that federal agents wear when not in a suit is tan 5.11 pants and a polo shirt which is exactly what they are wearing. It is unbelievable how the smallest things get made into some big conspiracy.

These individuals are secret forces operators. Watch the television show "the unit".

It is 100% clear as day that these guys are employed by the military under the highest ranks as active duty members.

Each of them has a unique, but very obscure callsign. Highly trained in all aspects of counter terrorism.

Check out the video where the two suspects are walking away from the camera. Note the dark haired woman leaning agaist the building, the one with the oversized bluish colored bag. She watches both suspects walk past her, then immediately begins texting... who is she? Who was she texting? Was the text meant for the suspects handlers confirming their appearance on the scene? Verifying that they were going through with the mission? I notced that the press has begun editing the footage to end before you can see her starting her texting...

Funny how after Israel decided to come in an "aid" the investigation, it turned into a Muslim witch hunt. Whereas before, they didn't know who to frame. They were thinking "right wing extremest" at first.

Also, you'll notice that tactic they used. They killed one of the brother in cold blood. Using him as an example to the younger brother if he doesn't sign a false confession.

It's been said before that FBI patrols all events like this in larger cities since before this bombing. They are there to keep the bombing from happening. All the conspiracy theories lately just make me shake my head. I'm pretty sure there are people out there, both American and otherwise, who have a "reason" to bomb public events.

My problems with these pictures are 1. they still have their bags after the blast and 2. shortly after the blast, more FBI personnel showed up. Could it be that they were using said communication equipment to, oh I don't know, call the other FBI personnel over to the finish line?

No, the real conspiracy is how these terrorist events seem to always happen when the FEDS are on scene conducting drills simulating EXACTLY the same event.

Anonymous said...

For one, if they were there to prevent the bombing... They FAILED. In a huge way. They were standing, what, 30 feet from where the bomb was eventually placed! So more likely, they did exactly what they were supposed to.

I am pretty sure the operation would have involved dummy backpacks, hence why they still have backpacks afterwards. That, or they were overseeing the operation, not planting the bomb themselves.

April 19, 2013 at 3:27 PM - you don't seem to get it - they were standing right next to the bomb site, then moved before it went off. Then when everyone was helping injured PEOPLE, they were playing around under the bleachers with the FBI.

Now we know as a matter of fact the FBI was in contact with one of the suspects 2 YEARS AGO. You're still not skeptical?

"What happened here?" Where's the Grand juries? Where is the funding for the grand juries? Why do WE the People not have the issue of bourse (money) in our hands?
To take control of the issue of bourse labor, we will have to STRIKE THEM OUT.
Without Grand juries WE the People have little power. With Grand juries we can find them out. To hire Grand juries will require that the issue of money (bourse) be in the hands of the people and out of the hands of the central bankers.
Will labor not answer the call to protect us from the terrorism of our merchant rights power crowd and STRIKE THEM OUT and bring the Grand juries in?
Merchant rights power has destroyed literally hundreds of millions of our brothers and sisters both here and abroad.
With bourse in their hands, they carry on with their death and destruction; Corrupting officials for free.
Does it not seem likely that nothing will change until WE STRIKE THEM OUT, and take the issue of bourse (money) into our own hands?
From bystander to actor, we're hoping and praying that labor will act and bring us to peace.STRIKE THEM OUT!

Anonymous said...'s *my thing* ~.. If these 2 men (one teen) can be essentially, identified through widespread use of media, social and otherwise, as well as tracked down, based off of images provided, just like these..
Then the question of the day is: WHY haven't these images of these *contractors* been enlarged, and widely distributed for in order to identify these men/women and gather more information? This ? begs an answer!

The Boston bombing is plainly a ramping up of the martial law plan for America that's been ongoing for a while now, at least since the most major military op of 9-11-01. Since these crimes have been committed in full view of the public since 9-11, it means that the government feels it is in full control and can't be deterred. Expect more such incidents fairly soon and full martial law probably some time next year, at the outside, early to mid-2015. Boston was the first in-yo'-face martial law trial run. Did you hear the gullible locked-down sheeple applauding it? They will applaud right into the concentration camps until the moments they are eliminated as feces and buried by bulldozers with the other thousands and millions of nameless and faceless entities exactly like themselves. Only in the very last moments will many cry out, "But, but, but, this is not heaven!" Reality can be so ugly.

The men in question have already been identified, yes as private contractors called "Craft", a unit formed by the late Chris Kyle. What or why they were in the vicinity of the one bomb blast has not been clarified, but it is obvious they were working with the "FBI".

Those two mercenaries with the beaver emblem did
not even attempt to help because their jobs are in death. And somehow, they knew the explosion
was coming. Also, there was mention of snipers
on the roofs but witnesses saw snipers.

my only concern is why in pictures it looks like police are just standing around I dont see anyone helping until many shots later...why is the old man in yellow on the ground walked on by officer why hasnt anyone aided him during this? I also see no pictures of the boy who died or the chinese girl in the aftermath...people blocking them on purpose? why is there no photo of them being taken to hospital? why did police wait so long to put these people in an ambulance and why didnt they make room for those injured to get out by blocking a path way...just so odd to me theyre standing around

I've heard of building contractors, but never bombing contractors. That's kind of an interesting twist.
