  •  What confuses me is that seemingly nobody... (10+ / 0-)

    ...has claimed responsibility.

    IMO this is home grown. Someone that hates people enjoying a traditional international event in a large city.

    But who?

    Someone that watched the Boston marathon before and knew what to do.

    I hope they nail the a$%hole(s?) soon.

    This is the lead that seems to matter;

    Police are searching for a Penske rental van and for a hooded man who left the area before the explosions.[66]
    A person who was briefed on the investigation said at least one of the devices was made from a pressure cooker packed with shards of metal, nails, and ball bearings to inflict maximum casualties and was placed in a backpack.[67][68][69][70] Investigators have found remains of an electronic circuit board that was possibly used in the timer of the bomb.[71]

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

    •  Claims of responsibility (5+ / 0-)

      I'd be willing to bet that the Boston Globe and the Boston Police Department have each gotten a dozen or more calls for people who claim to have done it.  Most or all of those claims are probably bogus, and they're not being reported because there isn't any news value in reporting a most-likely-bogus claim of responsibility.
