article imageConspiracy theories swirl around Boston Marathon terrorist attack

By Eric Morales     Apr 19, 2013 in Crime
Boston - Conspiracy theorists are latching onto photographs taken at the Boston Marathon, believed to show Navy Seal teams at the scene of the Boston blasts.
Amateur photos have made the difference in attempting to unravel what happened at the Boston Marathon bombings, but a number of photos showing several men in tactical uniforms, carrying backpacks, and using earpieces have gone viral on the Internet. The issue has even crept into press conferences by the FBI.
Dan Biondi a reporter with Alex Jones' radio show and website, Infowars was able to gain access to several press conferences held on the Boston attacks.
"(Was the Boston bombings) a staged attack to take our civil liberties and promote homeland security while sticking their hands down our pants on the streets?" Biondi asked Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. "No," Patrick replied. "Next question."
Bidondi was at the FBI press conference that unveiled the photos of Dzhokar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, there he attempted to ask about bomb drills that eyewitnesses said were taking place on the morning of the marathon, as well as the presence of military personnel at the scene of the blasts. Special Agent In Charge Richard DesLauriers ignored the questions and moved on.
Those who do not accept the official story coming out of Boston claim that the backpacks carried by the alleged Navy Seals are the same which carried the bombs at the Boston Marathon.

The logos on the hats of the men photographed at the scene are said to belong to a private company called The Craft, which according to their website is contracted to provide training and security to Federal agencies.

However the logo is also used by several other organizations including Seal Team 3 and Blackwater.
Alex Jones who has been spearheading the promotion of the photos claims traffic to his website has skyrocketed since the Boston attacks. Jones is putting forth a theory that a drill was conducted to distract law enforcement, while government agents either allowed the Tsarnaev brothers to carry out the bombings, or blew up the marathon themselves.
Fox News personality Bill O'Reilly attacked the notion of a conspiracy behind the Boston Marathon as "wacky" calling people who believe in conspiracy theories surrounding the Boston attacks "nut jobs."
