Bomb Sniffing Dogs And Roof Spotters At Finish Line Of Boston Marathon Hours Before Bombs Were Exploded

You won't hear or read about this in the mainstream media, but a Mobile, Alabama runner in yesterday's Boston Marathon where two bombs were set off near the finish line tells a local NBC affiliate there was an obvious state of heightened alert for the possibility of a bomb even before the race began yesterday. This contradicts claims by government officials that they had no prior warning. Ali Stevenson describes scenes of bomb sniffing dogs and spotters on roofs of nearby buildings near the finish line ahead of yesterday's marathon and repeated reassurance to runners by officials not to be alarmed because it was just a training exercise.
“At the starting line this morning, they had bomb sniffing dogs and the bomb squad out there,” he said. “They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise,” Stevenson told AL.com.
However, during a press conference, Boston police told Infowars reporter Dan Bidondi that there was “no specific intelligence” regarding an attack and that no drills took place besides the usual precautions taken for a big event.
When Bidondi again attempted to ask police about why people were being told to remain calm before the bombs exploded, there was no response.
“They kept making announcements saying to the participants ‘do not worry, this is just a training exercise’” said Stevenson, who is the University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise, they must have known,” Stevenson told Local15 News. “They must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in,” adding that spotters were stationed on roofs of buildings and that bomb sniffing dogs were going up and down the finish line.
Stevenson said the level of security he witnessed was unlike anything he had experienced as a marathon runner before in major cities such as Chicago, Washington D.C., and London.
Photographic evidence confirms Stevenson’s claim that there were spotters on the roof before the bombs exploded.

I am not surprised that there would be bomb sniffing dogs and police before and during the marathon; I think that the coverup is that these efforts were ineffective.
Of course, it seems to be sign of a professional bomb maker to use ball bearings, I would think that nails would be easier to obtain and harder to trace.

In the aftermath of 9/11, federal officials denied having any idea that there was a threat on that do or that they had any idea that someone would think to fly airliners into buildings. However, they were running drills for that very same type of attack on the day of 9/11.

On the day of the 7/7 bombings in London, they were running drills for bombings on the same subway lines.

Now it appears that they were running "training exercises" during the Boston Marathon.

There are three possibilities for each of these situations. One is that the government knew about the threat, failed to stop it, and is lying about drills to coverup for their failure. The second is that they knew about the threat and increased their presence, but allowed the attack to happen on purpose so as to serve some government end (public officials in recent history have been known to express hope for "Pearl Harbor like events" to help them pass a their agendas). The third possibility is that members of government were complicit or directly involved in planning the attacks, using the drill as a cover to help carry out the attack.

Whether it was incompetence, exploitation, or conspiracy, it is disturbing that this tale is being repeated again and again, with innocent people being murdered directly under the government's watch. A lot of people are looking for answers and justice right now. They should start by questioning the government and demanding resignations, firings, and possibly criminal charges against government officials when they allow things like this to happen.
