Were Boston Marathon bombings a false flag? – Part 2: The bomb drill

Yesterday, in Part One of a planned series of posts exploring whether the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013 are a false flag event, I proposed that a signature attribute of a false flag operation is the co-occurrence of a government drill at the same time as the traumatic event and in around the same place.

The purpose of the concurrent drill is to provide special ops personnel (who are the real perpetrators of the false flag incident) and/or professional crisis actors with a cover story should they be seen or caught on film at the false flag event.

In this Part Two of the series, we will look at whether there was such a drill in Boston on that fateful day.

On April 15, 2013, during the Boston Marathon near the finish line at 666 Boylston Street, a bomb exploded at 2:49 p.m. EDT, killing three people and injuring 282 others. Here’s a photo showing the first blast on the right.


Thirteen seconds after the first blast, at 3:02 p.m., a second bomb exploded 180 yards down from the first explosion, also on Boylston Street. The photo below was taken from the perspective of the first explosion site, showing the second blast down the block.

But what we’re not told is that there was a bomb drill on that same day and mere yards from the marathon’s finish line.

How do we know it?

Because the prestigious Boston Globe newspaper on April 15, 2013, at 12:53 p.m., tweeted that according to police, there would be “a controlled explosion” on the 600 block on Boylston Street, across from the Boston Public Library. Here’s a screenshot of the first Boston Globe tweet which I took from a YouTube video (scroll down for the video). I circled the time and date of the tweet in red:

Here’s another look at that tweet (5th from the top, circled in red):


Here’s a screenshot of the second Boston Globe tweet:


You can verify the second tweet for yourself by going to the Boston Globe’s twitter site. Click here or go to https://twitter.com/BostonGlobe/status/323886879453892609.

In case that page is erased, here’s a screenshot I just took of the page, showing that as of 5:48 am, April 25, 2013 (bottom right of image, circled in yellow), the page is still accessible, showing the “controlled explosion” tweet. Click image below to enlarge!

Boston Globe twitter page

The “library” referred to in the tweet is the Boston Public Library. Its address is 700 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116.

The Boston Public Library is across the street from the Marathon Sports Store. The store’s address is 671 Boylston St, Boston, MA 02116, and was just a little down from the Boston Marathon finish line. On April 15, 2013, the first bomb exploded right in front of the store.

Here’s a screenshot I took of Marathon Sports Store on Google Maps:

You can verify this for yourself by going to the Google Maps site for Marathon Sports Store (click here) and click on the left arrow to swivel left, you’ll see that the library is right across the street from the sports store. Here’s a screenshot I took of the Boston Public Library on Google Maps:

Here’s a video showing the tweets:

Note that both Boston Globe tweets were published at 12:53 p.m. on April 15, 2013 — 1 hour 56 minutes before the first bomb detonated at 2:49 p.m. EDT.

A “controlled explosion” is a method for detonating or disabling a suspected explosive device. Leaving aside the sheer insanity of a “controlled explosion” in the midst of a marathon, how are we to interpret the Boston Globe tweets, warning that according to “police” and “officials,” there will be “a controlled explosion” in the “600 block of Boylton Street” “opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities”?

Seems to me we have at least four choices to interpret the two utterly fascinating Boston Globe tweets:

  1. The “controlled explosion” referred to in the tweets was the first bomb that detonated in front of the Marathon Sports Store near the marathon finish line, which means Boston Police knew about the “terrorist” plot before hand.
  2. The “controlled explosion” referred to in the tweets was a planned bomb drill by the government pretending to be a terrorist bombing. Nobody was killed or injured.
  3. The “controlled explosion” was a bomb drill that went horribly wrong, resulting in real deaths and injuries.
  4. The Boston Globe made a mistake, twice. There was no “controlled explosion” scheduled that day on Boylston St.

Sound off in our poll!

I just found a site claiming that the Boston Globe tweets were not on EDT clock, which means the tweets were sent out after the two bombs had detonated, because police thought they’d have to do a “controlled explosion” of a suspicious package left at the site of the first bombing.

On the other hand, here’s Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis on April 15, 2013, being asked by a reporter about rumors of a bomb drill at the Marathon. The reporter asked Davis about a claim that “there were drills this morning for the same exact thing that happened,” i.e., the two bombings, and whether the government should have “given warning ahead of time.” Davis answered evasively: “As I said earlier, there was no specific intelligence … that anything was going to happen.” In other words, the police commissioner did not deny a bomb drill had been planned that day.

Alastair Stevenson is the cross country coach at the University of Mobile, Alabama (see him on the university’s athletics staff page, here). Stevenson is a veteran marathon runner and a percipient witness at the Boston Marathon. He said he saw bomb-sniffing dogs and bomb-squad police, and heard an announcement of a bomb drill before the blasts. Here’s a phone interview Stevenson did with Anthony Gucciardi:

  1. Why in the hell would you do a controlled explosion at a nationally publicized event to begin with?!? As if we didn’t know the answer to that,,, Thank you for this information regarding the post in the Boston globe, I have seen many photos and read many articles regarding evidence of a false flag, but this slipped by me. BAD FERRET!!!


  2. Dressage Rider

    Ever since I found out about the crisis actor contrivance, I believe nothing when it comes to the “news.” The news anymore is about behavior shaping, so I ignore it. I am now suspicious of any splashy sensational event.


  3. This came up as spam warning on my FB. Why are they doing this to pages that are just asking questions & wanting the truth?! Thanks for what you are doing, keep up the great work!


  4. This is what troubles people. We have too many factors that can’t be fitted comfortably with the public narrative.

    Do I think the Boston Globule would mistakenly tweet this stuff twice? No.
    All possible conclusions lead us to very sinister workings by our own government.

    Militarized police with automatic weapons, dressed in cammo, riding in Humvees and Blackhawks, forcing martial law on whole towns? It’s almost worse than the terrorists. We now have a working precedent for similar actions in the immediate future.


  5. Thank you Dr. Eowyn, Mr. McGrew, Leak Source and Zen Gardner for this most incredible post. I have found that timing is very important in life in deciphering what happened and what is the truth of a certain event. I do not believe the timing of the alleged drill and the actual bombing are coincidences. Dr. Eowyn has provided options as to what has happened here. Common sense, good reasoning and logic screams that something sinister has happened here.


  6. just read their is a “smoking gun” fema doc. that says this was another drill. This would not surprise me a bit. Would the U.S. govt. do this in order to further the agenda of taking guns,taking liberties away from the people,getting absolute control??? you damn right they would. The communists are unraveling, coming apart at the seams. So, hold on everyone, they will stop at nothing to keep the hold they have managed to get on Americans over the last 100 yrs.


  7. The only thing that I can see is if they do try a martial law scenario they are somewhat limited in the area they could cover. This was under cover of bomb, but if you said OK, Fla stay in, somehow I think us good ole boys will be heading for cover. That make sense.?
    PS Good Post as always my friend.


  8. Well, I was already beginning to lean towards this situation being a false flag. Now, I can no longer bury my head in the sand. There just seems to be no doubt, there cannot possibly this many coincidences. How is it that as a nation based on freedom–we are imploding! I guess we had all better hang on for the ride! (I cannot help but wonder, when looking at the original 13 colonies, who fought and allowed their blood to be shed–yearning for freedom, now these are among the very areas where people just want “Peace and Safety” . . . just send me my next welfare check, and don’t bother me with anything else.) Peace and Safety really don’t mean anything if you don’t have liberty in which to enjoy it. This is a great post, thank you.


  9. I forwarded this to everyone I know. I can’t help but wonder . . . do the “officials” in Boston now believe that they were duped? Do they secretly wonder if they were unwittingly made a party to a nefarious plan? Or, do they think this was just an accident? I go back in my mind to the pictures of the two brothers’ . . . you know the ones, where they looked relatively happy, confident, sure of themselves. If they thought they were just helping in a contingency plan, that would certainly explain it.


  10. PResumably the Bomb Squad exists to deal with bombs?
    If so, then there has to be a possibility of there being bombs for them to deal with. Are they part of the police force? Are they part of FEMA? Who pays their wages?
    Who in the Bomb SQuad gave the Globe the information they tweeted? Who tweeted the tweet for the Globe?


  11. I also question why would they schedule a bomb drill the same day as the Boston Marathon, especially in view of the fact that potential security and/or other major problems might come about in the course of such an important athletic event? What would be their point?


    • Hi, maybe they’re ? who is they one might well ask, are like David would have been had he accepted Saul’s offer of his heavy armor when he decided to fight Goliath on account of him insulting the Living God. These guys are so overladed with armored vehicles, automatic weapons, helmets, bullet proof vests and all the trappings of Star Wars gone mad, that perhaps they didn’t stop to remember what God had done on previous occasions, and built up their courage so that all this grasping of any remnant of liberty that remains in the USA could be avoided, and the guilty parties brought to justice.
      Margaret Thatcher and Prince Bandar brokered an arms deal with Saudi Arabia back in the day, and the payment was to be in kind, namely in oil at the price it came out of the ground. The oil was then to be sold on the market at market prices and the profit to be a slush fund to fight communism. The first communists that were on the list to be fought against were the Russians who were fighting in Afganistan. The mujadeen etc were mobilized by the people operating the slush fund and the beginning of the Al Quada terrorist network began.
      Prince Bandar was the Saudi ambassador to the US for a while and became firm friends with George Bush. He is now one of the military defence administrators in Saudi Arabia, and is the person who has direct links to the money that is being distributed to fund terrorism.
      The FBI has been known to procure people to take part in their cooked up terror plots and it’s reported than one mosque had to obtain a restraining order against the FBI agent who was pestering members of their congregation to become involved with such activity.
      The older of the two suspects was befriended by a guy names Mischa who accompanied him to the mosque and who discouraged him from his desire to become a musician composer by telling him that music is frowned upon in Islam one of the Uncles said. Who was this guy? Anyway, if the FBI is working on plots and getting people to become involved in them so that they can discover them, no wonder things are so confused.
      Whatever think tank or brainstorming organization that comes up with these schemes is not working in the interest of a truthful path to mankind’s future.
      Truthfully, we should be working towards the betterment of civilization and increasing our ability to create sources or energy or power with which to be able to provide it at a good price so that we can improve our productivity industrially and agriculturally so as to make progress towards a higher level of civilization, especially in the scientific arena, where we should be concentrating on the dangers that face us from the Cosmos in the form of asteroids and comets.
      We need to fund NASA and the Moon and Mars missions, so that we can put instruments up there to get better information with which we can start preparing ourselves for this future challenge.
      The use of nuclear power for war is completely out of the question, and wars are not viable at all if major nations who would be pitted against each other are armed with thermonuclear devices.
      All this agitation is leading towards a confrontation with Syria, and today there are murmurings in the MSM about Assad being beind the Boston Marathon bombings.
      We need to dismantle the aparatus that promotes and bankrolls terrorism. That aparatus is documented and most of the required information upon who is involved is easily found on several websites right now.
      We need for Congress to publish the pages that were held back from the original bombing of the World Trade Center in NYC and get to the bottom of the Benghazi murders, and then the members of the terrorist organizations that took part in this events together with the illegal war waged against Libya who are now being utilized amongst others to fight against the Assad government will be pretty clear.
      We need to put on our David Thinking Caps and tell ourselves, if God is for us, who can come against us.
      This is a spiritual battle and we are admonished by God’s word not to wage war against flesh and blood because it is so limited in it’s scope. We will not triumpt upon the red carpet, but we will walk on serpents and scorpions.


    • The more confusion the better, to cover one’s tracks.


  12. Good post. They always seem to have a drill going at the very same time and with the same or very similar parameters. It is a tell-tale signature. That way the good guys can generally get suckered into the evil scheme.


  13. Dr. Eowyn, another fantastic article! I find it so incomprehensible that this event, the London subway bombing, and 9/11 all had drills, simulating exactly what really happened, occurring at the exact same time, at the exact same location as the actual event. And Sandy Hook had a drill occurring at a neighboring school at the exact same time.

    Also , there were witnesses at Boston who saw bomb sniffing dogs before the race started who were told by police they were there for a drill.


    • Thank you, Mike! 😀

      I didn’t know about Boston police saying they were there for a drill! Amazing. Do you have a source for that?


      • Dr. Eowyn, I read it in several places. One was the site http://www.educate-yourself.org. I’ll look for the articles. Also, Alex Jones had this piece:

        UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs Were at Start, Finish Lines for “Drill”

        Local 15 TV
        April 15, 2013
        [Editor’s Note: Just as with the Madrid bombing and 7/7 bombings in London and countless others, a drill coincides with the real event. This is done so that if the compartmentalized operation is exposed the operatives executing the attack can simply claim they were part of the drill.]
        University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

        “They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”
        Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
        “There was just smoke, another explosion went off,” Stevenson said. “We all started running. There were people crying.”
        Stevenson said there was no question in his mind that this was an intentional act.
        Local 15 News is talking with more locals who were taking part in the run.

  14. NEVER forget FDR’s famous quote: “In politics, there are no coincidences.” As in No, NEVER.


  15. “Falsely Identified ‘Boston Bomber’ Found Dead In River”

    I have no idea where this is going, but the case is drawing new attention.


  16. the blaze has an article this morning-“Professors Wild Claim- Mass Casualty Drill” possibly comprised of actors, I watched fox news on the minute by minute accounts, this was worse than a “bad movie.” Way too many holes in this.


  17. This is a 17 clip in which the Boston Commissioner calls the suspects “actors.”



  18. WOW….just WOW……. I found this over in the comments at Dr. Kates.


  19. A top-ranking Republican congressman said yesterday he expects the feds to make more arrests in their ever-widening probe of the deadly Boston Marathon bombings, which took a new frightening turn yesterday when officials revealed the accused terrorist brothers made “spontaneous” plans to launch an attack on Times Square.

    “I hear a lot of definitive statements out there that it was just these two men and it’s over, but I will tell you I hear these briefings every day, and I don’t think this is over,” said U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, a Michigan Republican who chairs the House Committee on Intelligence. “There are clearly more persons of interest, and they’re not 100 percent sure if there aren’t other explosives.”



  20. Surely owner of this blog would realise when looking at Boston globe tweets about a controlled explosion-this was AFTER the bombs had gone off!! Was referring to a suspect package found.Simple logic.


    • Surely, the person who wrote this comment would at least try to give us a source, instead of a proclamation.


      • Dr. Sensible

        Surely you will realise that the source is in fact yourself! You show it in this photo (in this article!):

        The “BREAKING NEWS” Tweet is at 8m (presumably this means 8 minutes before the time that the screen shot was taken). So, how do you explain the fact that the Tweet below this (at 11m) states “Update: 2 powerful explosions detonated…”

        So, the explosions took place at least 3 minutes before the Tweet about the controlled explosion. Does that mean that the explosions took place just before 12:50? How do you explain this? Even if the time is wrong and it is actually 14:50, it doesn’t take away the fact that the controlled explosion Tweet came AFTER the bombs had exploded…or am I missing something obvious here???

        But, if you don’t want to take your own evidence of proof of what I’m saying, prehaps you could have a look at this…


        Best Regards

        Dr. Sensible


        • Then what happened to the “controlled explosion”? None was reported.
          Nor is the “controlled explosion” the only candidate for a bomb drill that day. Why wouldn’t Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davies, when asked, just say outright: “There was no bomb drill planned today anywhere in Boston”? What about the sports coach Alastair Stevenson who said he saw bomb sniffing dogs and heard an announcement about a bomb drill?


        • Hey, Dr. Sensible!
          You should change your alias to something more fitting. Anyone who’s into barebacking sure ain’t sensible by any definition of the word “rational”. Just my humble opinion!

          Best regards

          Dr. Eowyn (my doctorate is real!) 😀


  21. Secondly the coach never stated he heard it was a drill ,but a training excerise for the sniffer dogs,if indeed there was any announcement as no-one else has reported one.


  22. From ABC News: upcoming simulated attacks in Denver, Portsmouth, and Washington, DC, using volunteers and actors for realism:



  23. Update:

    Alastair Stevenson is the cross country coach at the University of Mobile, Alabama (see him on the university’s athletics staff page, here). Stevenson is a veteran marathon runner and a percipient witness at the Boston Marathon. He said he saw bomb-sniffing dogs and bomb-squad police, and heard an announcement of a bomb drill before the blasts. Here’s a phone interview Stevenson did with Anthony Gucciardi:


  24. The following piece is on Jeff Bauman and the ‘heroics’ of the cowboy in the staged photo that went viral. It was closer to 6 minutes after the blast we see Jeff in the wheelchair, after others were taken in stretchers and he was basically ignored until all things were in place for this ‘show’.


    I watched Max Malone do a blow by blow of the actors readying the stage for a photo op. He titled his video frenchfries with gravy, so it may stay under the radar for a little while.

    I can’t believe the American public is THIS gullible. I knew we were pretty dumbed down and distracted, but this incident really takes the cake. There is video of the wheelchair group including a stop-and-adjust the rig as it appears to be falling off. This video was flagged. Many of the videos and links I have been to over the past few weeks are no longer there. I went through my youtube history and dozens are removed, so someone must be attempting a sweep.


    • I found that these pictures help piece this together from a differing angle, especially if you look at some of the larger ones and follow the sequence of events. (note: some of them are not in order)

      Just more evidence to look at and critically analyze.

      Before/After shots of Boston Marathon 2013


  25. Absolutely. To add to the discussion of the value of drills to false flag operators:

    1. Standard law enforcement efforts have already been stood down.

    2. Drill commanders will also be inside criminals, ready to take charge of the response and inquiry. Or rather ready to stifle the response – in Norway, a “snafu with boats prevented” timely onsite response, & ready to mislead on the investigation.

    3. Patsies can be automatically in place (London 7/7 drill & false flag attack). There are all kinds of patsies: participant patsies, drill participants, uninvolved patsies brought, called, or otherwise directed to the site of the crime.

    4. There is no need for all drill participants to be involved. One or two can simply substitute real explosives.

    I’m sure there are others.

    Other false flag signatures: authorities insisting on destruction of evidence (here, Ft. Hood, 9/11 air traffic controller tape), reports of mask wearing shooter to hide existence of multiple shooters (Newtown, Norway), etc.


  26. Dr. Eowyn, It would be helpful to explain that crisis actors and the operative are trained to post on these types of forums. Many times they will post a link to one of their bogus facebook or social media pages.


  27. as for Jeff Bauman -that was some blast because it turned his black straight hair into a thick brown curled perm- temporarility I guess.

  31. Thank you, Dr. Eowyn for posting all this that is TRUTH about how our Gov’t fakes us out whenever they can in order to spin their agenda. I am just afraid that when they come to confiscate our guns and ammo, which is what the mass shootings false flag events are all for, we won’t be able to say NO!
