|21st century Boston Massacre|
Prior to reporting on what I have been able to learn about the horrific bombing at the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013, let me express my sincere condolences to the families of the victims. The death toll as of 9pm ET stands at three and is certain to climb.
An Old Familiar Script
On April 19, 1995, in the wake of the bombing of the Murrah Federal Building n 1995, the FBI & BATF were working with the alleged terrorists under a sting operation. Of course when these connections are discovered, the perpetrators have plausible deniability and claim they were drilling or performing a sting that went bad. Yet, on the same day, Renee Cooper, Attorney Dan Adomitis, J.D. Reed with the Oklahoma Assessor’s Office, Norma Joslin of the Oklahoma Board of Elections and private investigator Claude Criss all reported seeing the bomb squad at the federal courthouse that morning, before the bombing. In this “drill,” in a script that is becoming all too familiar, there were bomb drills planned in conjunction with the bombing of the federal building.
Who will ever forget the revelation that on September 6, 2001, Condoleezza Rice was warned that a terrorist attack inside the United States was imminent?
