From the same edition of the Daily Mail that you quote in your post above:
Fresh Bigfoot mystery as police admit they are baffled by giant decomposed foot found in Massachusetts wood
I wonder if Bigfoot had something to do with the bombings? A very credible source you've got yourself there Ben.

I went to a "trustworthy" source to read about it, the conservative news site WND.

Even they aren't completely buying into this story:
A Saudi Arabian newspaper is reporting that United States First Lady Michelle Obama visited in the hospital Saudi citizen Abdul Rahman Ali Issa Al-Salimi Alharbi, the young man who had been labeled a “person of interest” in the Boston Marathon bombing.

The newspaper accompanied its report with an image of Obama, although the background was generic and it couldn’t be confirmed immediately that she was at the hospital where Alharbi was being treated at the time

The newspaper’s Arabic-language report is being highlighted by Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim Brotherhood member

Reported Shoebat, “There were multiple reports that Alharbi was hospitalized at Brigham and Women’s so that would seem [to] corroborate the Okaz report

Reported Shoebat, “Now, contrarians … with concerns about this visit will likely say that the first lady was simply paying visits to all the victims in the hospital, of which Alharbi was one and had been cleared two days earlier.”

To review, Michelle Obama visited the victims of the bombing at Brigham and Women's...Alharbi was hospitalzed at Brigham and Women's...the former Muslim Brotherhood member says that Alharbi had been cleared of any involvement in the bombings two days earlier so he was no longer a "person of interest" and that The First Lady was there to visit all the victims of the bombings.

Hmmmm guess you got me. Bigfoot was spotted at Mass General at the same time!

WND is famously known for selling its contributors' books on the same page(s).

Try a different source.

So I went to an untrust-worthy site, and found this little tempting tidbit:

• So this guy, on whose behalf the Saudi Foreign Minister flew here
• was at the scene of the bombing
• acted suspiciously enough prior to the explosion to be tackled by bystanders afterwards
• was held by police as a person of interest
• and who is on a terror watch list
• and they want to allow him to return to Saudi Arabia...

I would add, that his injuries are to the back of his legs. hmmmm...

Is the Saudi in the hospital a member of the royal Saudi family?

...or one of bin Laden's sons...?

An audio tape of Boyd decrying the U.S. military, discussing the honor of martyrdom, and bemoaning the struggle of Muslims was played at a AUG hearing. It is the 1st case of a ring of homegrown terrorists having specific targets.

9. 11/17/2009: 11 Muslims board AirTran Flight 297 from Atlanta to Houston. They behaved in a manner which can be only described as “dry run hijacking”, perhaps to test the TSA/ Homeland Security.

"...Cell-phone records (and her brother-in-law) tell a whole 'nother story, tho- one that's likely to earn her a lengthy stay at the Gray Bar Hotel: FBI investigators have learned that Katherine Russell-Tsarnaev called and warned abusive husband Tamerlan that his picture was on TV, launching a violent terror spree/street battle with police that was to end ingloriously just a few hours later with death-by-brother-in-SUV.

"Instead of doing the right thing, Katherine Russell-Tsarnaev chose to make a REAL bad life choice, i.e. aiding and abetting a terrorist: Steve Hayes told Greta Van Sustern on Fox last night that the younger brother Dzokhar Tsarnaev -in his pre-Miranda interrogation- spilled the beans on Katherine's call to Tamerlan, which basically give him a 'heads-up' that 'they're looking for you'."

[quote]Police officers descended on the scene of the Watertown shoot-out after Dzhokhar

Tsarnaev fled the scene in a SUV.

What you’re about to read is how it all ended. The denouement. It is a story of remarkable drama, bravery, and terror, and it is based on interviews with Watertown police and fire officials, State Police and Boston police, including Dan Linskey, the superintendent in chief of the Boston Police Department.



Joe Reynolds is a young cop in Watertown, and last Friday he was driving, alone in his cruiser, when he saw them, the bombing suspects. Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his brother Dzhokhar were in two cars, following each other closely.



Reynolds called it in.



‘Do not engage,” the dispatcher told him. “Not on your own.”



The brothers pulled over. So did Reynolds. He didn’t know it, but he was about to interrupt the two as they tried, police believe, to transfer their crude, homemade explosives from one vehicle to another.



As Reynolds waited for backup, it felt like hours, but it was only minutes and that backup, in the form of Sergeant John MacLellan, was speeding up the street just as the Tsarnaevs turned and at least one of them opened up on Joe Reynolds. Reynolds threw his cruiser into reverse and sped backwards. He and MacLellan got out and began returning fire.



The suspects had to know they had only one chance if they were going to make their way to New York, perhaps to kill again. They had to shoot their way out. But the cavalry was on the way to ensure that would not happen. A bevy of Watertown, Boston, Transit and State Police were rushing to help.



Tim Menton, a Watertown patrolman, was on his way home after a detail when he heard the call for backup. He sped toward the intersection of Laurel and Dexter in his personal vehicle, but once he turned onto Dexter Avenue, he was greeted with a burst of gunfire. A bullet pierced his windshield.



Watertown police Sergeant Jeff Pugliese was on his way home after his shift ended, but he heard the frantic calls for backup and sped toward the scene. MacLellan then ingeniously let his car roll, unoccupied, toward the two men. It drew fire, and every bullet fired into the car was one less bullet that could be used on a cop.



Explosions boomed, and the street lit up with sparks.



“They’re throwing explosives!” a state cop yelled into a radio.



Thinking fast and with sure tactical instincts, Pugliese drove not into the firefight, but down one of the side streets he knows like the back of his hand. He ran through yards in the dark and outflanked the bombers. Pugliese began firing from the side, and police believe that he hit 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, bringing him down.



Pugliese and a Boston police officer converged on the wounded man and subdued him. They didn’t know where the younger brother, Dzhokhar, had disappeared to until they heard the gunning of an engine. Dzhokhar aimed the stolen Mercedes-Benz SUV at the cops who, in a scene that would not be out of place in a Hollywood film, dove to safety. Tamerlan Tsarnaev wasn’t as lucky. His body was dragged by the car for a short distance before his little brother drove off.



A suspect was down, but so was an officer. An MBTA cop named Dick Donohue lay on the street, his femoral artery ripped apart by a bullet. A Boston cop named Ricky Moriarty was soon at his side and began doing chest compressions. A pair of Harvard University officers, Ryan Stanton and Michael Rea, applied tourniquets to stop the blood gushing from Donohue’s upper thigh. Others joined in.



Pair of Watertown firefighters, Pat Menton and Jimmy Caruso, were in a fire rescue truck when they got a call for an officer down. Pat Menton froze momentarily: Timmy, he thought, don’t let it be Timmy. His brother Tim, the off-duty cop who drove from his detail into the middle of a firefight, was not the officer down, but one of the officers working on the officer who was down.



As Pat Menton and Jimmy Caruso raced to the scene, Dan Linskey, the Boston police chief, was standing on a corner in Watertown with a state cop named Chris Dumont when he heard the plaintive cries over his radio. Officer down! Officer hit! We need an ambulance!



Linskey knew that voice. It was one of his officers, Ricky Moriarty. Both Linskey and Moriarty are former Marines, if there is such a thing. Linskey started running with Dumont beside him. “Ricky, where are you?” Nothing. “Ricky! Please, please, let me know where you are.”



Moriarty had strained a ligament in his hand while doing CPR and pulled off in pain. Another Boston cop, Walter Suprey, jumped in seamlessly. Moriarty gathered his breath. “144 Dexter!” Moriarty yelled into his shoulder mike, to his chief. “144 Dexter!”



Linskey and Dumont were there in seconds. Linskey saw that Donohue was surrounded by other officers so he ran straight toward the severely wounded Tamerlan Tsarnaev. He saw that one of his cops, Jared Gero, was holding the suspect, who was handcuffed.



“Be careful, Jared!” Linskey remembers yelling. “He might be loaded!”



Linskey and Gero ripped Tsarnaev’s clothes from his body, frisking him for an explosive device. They found none.



At that moment, the two firefighter paramedics, Pat Menton and Jimmy Caruso, arrived at Donohue’s side and took over. It didn’t look good. Donohue had gone into cardiac arrest. He had no pulse. So much blood had drained from his body. He had the pallor of a dead man, but Menton and Caruso were damned if they were going to let a cop die on their watch.



The police officers carried their comrade to the back of the fire rescue truck and put him down. Menton and Caruso leaped in and continued to work on him. The state cop, Dumont, jumped in with them. Pat Menton cleared his airway. Dumont began CPR. Caruso used all his strength to clamp the pulsing femoral artery, from which Donohue’s life was ebbing away. “We need a driver!” Pat Menton yelled. “We need a driver!”



Menton didn’t see it, but his brother Tim, the cop, jumped in the driver’s seat. He had never sat in the fire truck and didn’t have the first clue how to operate it. But he got it going.



Protocol called for them to go to the trauma unit at Beth Israel, at least 5 miles away. “We’ll never make it,” Pat Menton said. “We’ll never make it,” Jimmy Caruso agreed. “Go to Mount Auburn,” they yelled to the driver, who had been joined up front by Donohue’s partner. That hospital was less than 2 miles away. They screeched to a halt at the hospital, and Pat Menton and Jimmy Caruso went right into the ER with him.



Having just saved a police officer’s life, Pat Menton and Jimmy Caruso walked out of the hospital and right into Tim Menton. “What are you doing here?” they asked. “I drove the rig,” Tim Menton replied. Then they smelled it, an awful, metallic smell. Tim Menton the cop didn’t know how to get the emergency brake off a fire truck, so they had driven with it on for 2 miles.



Back on Laurel Street, they were trying to save Tamerlan Tsarnaev, too. “Because that’s what we do,” Linskey said. “We’re better than them, and we gave him medical care even though he killed women and children in our city. Even though he tried to kill us.”



Linksey had been working 40 hours when Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis walked over and put a hand on his shoulder. Linskey didn’t want to go, but he could barely stand, and orders are orders. “You’re not driving your car, are you?” asked his pal, Eddie Kelly, the Boston firefighter from Ladder Tower 17. “No,” Linksey replied, tossing him the keys, “you are.” Kelly drove him home and Linskey’s wife led him to the couch. Linskey opened a beer and was wondering what they would have to do to catch the other one when he got a call: they had cornered Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in a boat parked in a backyard in Watertown.



There, the chaos and drama continued. It’s unclear who opened fire and why, but the cops let a fusillade go at the boat. Billy Evans, a Boston superintendent and the most senior officer on the scene, started screaming, “Hold your fire! Hold your fire!”



When they finally pulled the bloody, exhausted kid from the boat, Billy Evans turned to a pair of cops from the MBTA Police SWAT Team. “He hurt your guy,” Billy Evans said. “Cuff him.” Kenny Tran and Jeff Campbell stepped forward, and they put the cuffs on, for their buddy Dick Donohue and for all of us

FBI Refresher that "We Were Warned"...

Post  News Hawk on Tue Apr 07, 2015 7:46 pm

Russian authorities alerted the US government not once but “multiple’’ times over their concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev — including a second time nearly a year after he was first interviewed by FBI agents in Boston — raising new questions about whether the FBI should have focused more attention on the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, according to US senators briefed on the probe Tuesday.

The FBI has previously said it interviewed Tsarnaev in early 2011 after it was initially contacted by the Russians. After that review, the FBI has said, it determined he did not pose a threat.

In a closed briefing on Tuesday, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee learned that Russia alerted the United States about Tsarnaev in “multiple contacts’’ — including “at least once since October 2011,’’ said Richard Burr, a Republican of North Carolina, speaking with reporters afterward.

Senators said the briefing also revealed failures among federal agencies to share vital information about Tsarnaev, indicating, they said, that the US government still has not established a strong system to “connect the dots’’ about would-be terrorists residing in America more than a decade after 9/11.

You can’t connect the dots if you can’t address motive.

Without Islam as the motive, there was no reason to believe that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a threat to anyone but Russia. The FBI, under the influence of political correctness, likely chose to see him as a Chechen nationalist. But a Chechen nationalist is generally a Muslim terrorist. And Muslim terrorists don’t limit their sphere of terror to just one country.

At least Rand Paul has named our enemy as "Muslim Terrorism"—which he did today...

What a Face

Up is Down, Black is White...

The US Department of Homeland Security introduced a special plan - known as Standing Operating Procedure 303 - to block signals of cellular operators after cellular phones were used to detonate explosive devices during the bombings of the London subway system, Pravda.Ru reports.

A [US] federal appeals court wants to know why the government should be allowed to keep secret its plan to block cellular communication for the time of "critical emergencies."

We had to learn this from Russia?

Where is the US Press on this?

Tsarnaev found GUILTY on all 30 charges.

Jury's next action will be the penalty phase.

Tsarnaev probably won't find an insurance company that will offer him life insurance.

And in your panic and fear, Amerika, you played right into their hands.

Tsarnaev probably won't find an insurance company that will offer him life insurance.

The state can kill Tsarnaev 100 times, then throw his body out in the streets to be pulled apart by packs of revenge seeking Boobus, but guess what, it won't do any good.

What was lost on Patriot's Day 2013 is gone, and these guys, just like UBL, have won, because of what you allowed to happen in it's wake, AmeriKa.
