- I watched the whole thing on the news last night, couldn't sleep because of it either. Such a terrible thing, incredibly sad. Apparently the death toll has gone up to three and there are at least 17 people critically wounded, with the injuries including several amputations.
One of the dead was an eight-year-old boy...

- And then a hero comes along.........
Carlos Arredondo, 52, an immigrant from Costa Rica at the Boston Marathon race in memory of his son Lance Cpl. Alexander S. Arredondo who was killed in the line of duty 2004 in Iraq. He was giving out American flags to veteran and runners in the race. He is now considered a hero after saving a 27-year-old man who got both of his legs blown off by a bomb blast.
Arredondo pinched shut the blood flow from an exposed left leg artery while Jeff Bauman was being moved in a wheelchair to get emergency treatment.
Arredondo told media outlets that he kept telling Bauman, "Stay with me, stay with me." Bauman was in severe pain and shock, but survived after doctors at the Boston Medical Centre amputated both legs. Arredondo kept Jeff Bauman from bleeding to death, according to doctors.
Some sources say this pic has been photo shopped and may not be real. But the event that took place was very real and Arredondo a true hero.

I heard about it last night. Was awful and it really made me sick when I heard about that 8 year old child dying. Last I heard that had taken some people from the crowd in for questioning including a guy in the US on a student visa. Has there been anything more on who they think did this?
Oh they got the 2 guys ... 2 brothers, one is dead and as of tonight the other is in custody. But I am not really sure if I believe that they acted alone in this. I have my own theories and there are just too many things that just dont add up in my mind. What about the Saudi National they had in custody in the hospital? Now I hear he is being deported on Tuesday. Why would something like that be done if they thought he had a connection with the bombing ... think about it. Put the pieces together! There it is .... Muslim Brotherhood .... they all have each other's backs ... to hell with innocent people ... all that matters is to further your own agenda and take out anyone that gets in your way. How many more innocent American's are going to have to die until they impeach this adminstration and prosecute them for high treason against this country?
I think the answer lies in the fact that the Obama bowed to the Saudi king. As was noted at the time by those in the know.. the Saudi king is considered the Muslim leader and every Muslim must bow to him.
Obama also happened to "meet" with Saudi officials after they had the guy in custody earlier in the week .... that meeting wasn't on his schedule so why the meeting ... was it about the bombings???? Are we suppose to believe that it wasn't and just a "chance" encounter? Then John Kerry was in SA meeting behind closed doors ( Tuesday) and then soon thereafter the “Saudi” National guy was released. This was reported earlier. The piece also said the meeting in SA was supposed to be open to reporters and suddenly it was closed off. I'm telling you ... this is smelling worse by the minute!
