Terrible, at least the silver lining is the idiot(s) used a bomb and not a gun this time.

I don't think there is a way to stop it, short of eradicating the entire human race (please don't misconstrue what I said as advocating human genocide). A person determined to commit mayhem will find a way.

My questions are were these devices emplaced IEDs or is it possible that people wearing bomb vests caused this? If they were emplaced IEDs how were they hidden that the bomb dogs missed them?

Very tragic.

Sounds like more devices found just now!

Wonder how the truth will be relayed.

Opportunity for more restrictions or evidence of failure of our counter terrorism program?

We need to remember 3 things:

1. Red is positive.
2. Black is negative.
3. Use lots of water.

A lot of chatter from what others are hearing on scanners in major cities.

Unfortunately, this is one of the prices of freedom. Without tight restrictions on travel and personal belongings, we cannot prevent every anti-social act.

We can be alert and prepared to help avert a catastrophe when we are able.

Pray for the victims and their families and work to keep us free and preserve our liberty.

CBS just announced an explosion at JFK Library. He said, "This is an ongoing event."

I have been watching the raw footage closely and I am by no means an explosive expert, but does that look like a standard pipe bomb to anyone else? Perhaps made with black powder? Thats the only thing that I could think of that would cause that much smoke and flames.
