I've been researching everything about the Boston marathon because there are a few things I didn't understand. I came across a tweet that someone posted from The Boston Globe saying there would be controlled bomb activities, which was incidentally posted two hours before the actual bombs at the marathon took place (http://www.voltairenet.org/local/cache-v… I looked into this a little more and I found a runner from the marathon being interviewed saying that officials told him to remain calm during the explosions because it was just a drill. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a-vjPw8QZ… or the website (http://www.naturalnews.com/039945_Boston… From what I've gathered, they seem to be reliable sources.
I don't know what to make of this because it seems highly unlikely that drills would take place on the same exact day an actual attack would happen. So, I've deduced that, A. The government did it, B. They had knowledge that it was going to happen and failed to stop the suspects in time or, C. They just let it happen.
I'm having trouble believing B. because if they knew it would happen, why wouldn't the evacuate the area? Or cancel the marathon? I don't know if that's typically what would happen if an event received bomb threats, especially when it's such a large event, but it seems like it'd be the go-to choice.
What are your thoughts on this? Please don't heckle me over being a "conspiracy theorist" or whatever, I'm not that kind of person. I just find this extremely odd and I don't know what to make of it?
