“Contrary to widespread reporting, there have been no arrests made in connection with the Boston Marathon attack,” the FBI said in a statement. “Over the past day and a half, there have been a number of press reports based on information from unofficial sources that has been inaccurate. Since these stories often have unintended consequences, we ask the media, particularly at this early stage of the investigation, to exercise caution and attempt to verify information through appropriate official channels before reporting.”

This is insanity in Boston right now, hospital evacuated after someone locked their keys in their car and the guy helping him saw gas cans in the back, federal court has been evacuated in anticipation of suspect arriving, varying descriptions being provided to the press, some say white male with white backwards cap, others saying dark-skinned male. Absolutely crazy.

They are going to sneak the suspect in to court during the middle of the night... 1000's showed up after CNN said they detained him. Imagine if they walked him through the crowd!!! It would be a full on riot!

The worst part about all this is the non-existent war on terror. just like the war on drugs, the war on terror is un-winniable and only allows a self-perpetuating positive feedback loop of our domestic civil liberties being stripped, and the expenditures for defense spiraling out of control so the military industrial complex can be at perpetual war and earn a buck. All the war on terror really does is justify americas rape of the third world (read up on 3rd world dependency theory). Keep that in mind next time your off surfing Morocco or a host of other poor nations with great waves.
wake up people, there is no such thing as the war on terror. Anybody can be labeled as a terrorist. The war on terror is the equivalent to having a war on "people who like the color red". Anyone can fit that category, if the government finds an appropriate reason to go after them. Our children will laugh at our ignorance or be consumed by it.

There is a war on terror. I agree that it is un-winnable, but what do you suggest? You want us to do nothing while a bomb goes off every few years?
There are terrorist training camps where they train and plan for attacks on Americas. They don't look like military so it is nearly impossible to find them. They hide behind their own people putting their civilians in danger.
