Not long after two bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, known conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones didn’t hesitate to label the tragedy a “false flag.” In the wake of “9/11” and the more recent Sandy Hook Shooting, people have been more accepting of the idea that these very atrocities could be staged and or a ploy by the government to violate our civil liberties! Skeptics have risen and despite the carnage, people aren’t buying into the hype like they used to.
The first bomb went off at approximately 2:50 pm and the second–550 feet from the primary explosion–10 seconds later. Three people were killed and 170 plus people were injured. Medical examiners observed that some victims had “40 or more”pieces of shrapnel made of pellets, nails and sharp metallic objects, reports FoxNews. There are currently no suspects.
Alex Jones, who also believes that the Oklahoma City federal building bombing was a set-up by the federal government, was among the first to call out the bombing as a constructed act by the FBI. He also pointed non-believers to this clip of “Family Guy” that predicted a similar occurrence, an entire month before it happened.
Here are the major theories that are bubbling:
There were planned “control explosion” at the same time, in the same location.
According to Alex Jones, the verified news account @BostonGlobe tweeted (It has since been removed):
“They kept making announcements saying to the participants ‘do not worry, this is just a training exercise’” said an eyewitness on the scene–Ali Stevenson, Mobile Cross Country Coach. “They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise,” Stevenson told AL.com.
