Lindorff continues talking about his investigation into the FBI’s and Homeland Security Department’s hidden campaign to crush the Occupy Movement, based upon the thousands of documents obtained through a Freedom of Information Act campaign of discovery by the Partnership for Civil Justice.

Harvard University report endorses police state measures in Boston Marathon lockdown By Nick Barrickman

7 April 2014 — WSWS

A new report by the Program on Crisis Leadership of Harvard University’s Kennedy School, entitled “Why was Boston Strong?”, examines the response of police and other government agencies to the events of April 15 last year, when two pressure cooker bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. The report purports to “analyze how both prior preparation and action-in-the-moment contributed to the effectiveness of response.” In the process, it uncritically endorses the anti-democratic methods utilized in the aftermath of the bombings.

“One Fund Boston” and the Boston Mass Casualty Event By James F. Tracy

17 January 2014 — Memory Hole

An integral and by now much-anticipated element of a spectacle such as the Boston Mass Casualty Event (BMCE) of April 15, 2013 involves establishment of charities through which the incident may gain legitimacy in the public mind. Such entities provide fiscal channels by which event participants may be compensated and are also vital for public participation via charitable offerings.

29 October 2013 — Who What Why

Boston Marathon Bombing Timeline

14 August 2013 — Memory Hole

The following timeline of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing that killed three and injured many more provides a platform to better understand how the event was publicly presented by corporate and alternative news media. The chronological assemblage of coverage is not comprehensive of all reports published on the incident but is an ongoing project that also seeks to explain how the storyline was largely constructed by federal and state law enforcement, medical authorities and major media around the eventual theory that Dzokhar and Tamarlan Tsarnaev were the sole instigators of the bombing.

‘Witnessing’ Boston’s Mass Casualty Theatre By William Bowles

13 May 2013

Mention the word ‘conspiracy’ and eyes roll and people head for the exit. Derision is poured with abandon on the heads of those so described as ‘conspiracy theorists’, and especially those who dare to suggest that complex events can be engineered so as to fool the onlooker or the curious. The Boston bombings appear to fall into this category. Indeed, it’s so blatantly an engineered event that I think the ‘producers’ are getting careless (maybe they think we don’t care? More likely, they think we’re too scared to care). Continue reading
