mulgated the second picture is not one released by the FBI, though the internet has picked up on this as fact.
In an FBI official statement, it was declared that
“The only pictures which should be relied upon in relation to the Boston Bombings are the ones before you today”.
A very strange statement, telling the public not to use their powers of critical thinking and try to put together any loose pieces or recognize any official inconsistencies. It was basically an admission that there were many inconsistencies in earlier releases and statements. This is a trend seen more and more, and parallels can possibly be drawn between the Sandy Hook Massacre as well as the Boston Bombing. Both feature bizarre and contradictory statements about the events which simply do not make sense from any angle.
Boston Bombing Conspiracy #2 – The Leak
Before the bombs went off, the event was actually predicted. Four hours before the event the following was posted online:
“Warning: Laws being written to screw you. I work on a security commission and I’ve just received word to start 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 can.”
They’re going to pin this event on a male late teens to early 20s 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 the 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 lose my job and possibly face criminal charges. Please don’t let them get away with it. They won’t find the suspects till later this week and the raid is issued to occur on Friday. This is a staged event. The people hurt are real gut the event was planned. Don’t let them hurt our rights.
I’m at work so I used a copy of a picture on another thread. Also please don’t mention me. It will seriously hurt me”
This thread was picked up by the group Anonymous and reshared by them after the event. The events all unfolded exactly as predicted, so if the post was real then there can be little doubt that the Boston Bombings were a false flag operation.
Boston Bombing Conspiracy #3 – Pre-Existing Facebook Groups
After many disasters, including Hurricane Katrina, the Sandy Hook shooting and many others, there are nearly always claims that Facebook groups existed before the date of the actual event. One page titled “Our thoughts and prayers go out to all involved in the Boston bombings” was believed to have been created several hours prior to the event itself taking place. The page “Thoughts go out to all involved in the Boston explosions” was also held to have been created two days before the event. But this conspiracy is quite easily debunked. First of all, the creation of such a page would serve no real purpose whatsoever, neither by perpetrators of the staged event or by normal individuals. Pages can easily be created before the event and get their titles changed after. Additionally, dates shown on Facebook pages are not actually reliable indicators of their date of creation. They will still retain their original dates.
Boston Bombing Conspiracy #4 – Sandy Hook Victims
Perhaps one of the more bizarre yet persuasive conspiracies that is taking place is that there was no massacre at Sandy Hook and the whole thing has been made up. What is tragic about this particular conspiracy is that the family members of the victims have actually been the subject of abuse as they are allegedly “faking” the death of their child. Multiple people have had to relocate and have been harassed. This is what happens when emotion runs rampant without critical thinking. To the detriment of those who are already innocent victims. They get hit twice.
One rumor is that an 8-year-old who attended school at Sandy Hook was one of the victims of the Boston bombing. There are even pictures of the girl online. The young victim was in fact an 8-year-old boy, as reported by the Boston Globe. Further, children are not actually allowed in the race. Another picture alleges that the Sandy Hook principal was killed in the blast. The theory is actually a little more robust. The pictures of strikingly similar with the two first names being “Donna”, though there is no record of the Donna who died in the Sandy Hook Massacre entering into the Boston marathon under the former name Dawn Lafferty Hochsprung.
Boston Bombing Conspiracy #5 – Boston Globe Tweet
On April 15, the Twitter Feed of the Boston Globe had reported that “There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities”. This was taken as proof by any theorists that controlled explosion was due to take place at the Boston Bombings as a false flag operation. Unfortunately, this Tweet took place after the Boston Bombings and as such the theory falls flat on its face. Coincidentally, a fire did actually break out in JFK Presidential Library and Museum at around the same time as the bombings. This has been more fuel for the conspiratorial fire as there were even more police officers present.
There are many other Boston Bombing Conspiracies that have not been touched on within this article. There is the Saudi man, the man on the roof, the apparent suspect caught on CCTV, false victims and the family guy hoax. There are many more, however all are quite thin. It can safely be said that the majority of Boston Bombing conspiracy theories do not add up and fall apart upon further investigation. There is a tendency for conspiracies to be spun out of thin air, for example the picture of a man in the red shirt planning to propose to his girlfriend after she finished the race, huddled over his potential bride to be. Except the man had no relationship with the girl whatsoever. Though this was generally believed it had no basis in reality, it was just a bystander who tried to help the girl.
However, this is not to say that the official Boston bombing story is in the all clear. It is happening all too often that the official story has far too many holes and inconsistencies in it to add up. There appears to have been a significant amount of back tracking in relation to statements made by official authorities. And while many of the Boston Bombing conspiracy theories are false, this does not invalidate the small percentage of ones that are actually true. They only have to be correct once, however, there is a tendency that all conspiracy theories are fake on the basis that a few obviously are.
