Were Boston Marathon Bombings a False Flag? – Part 2: The Bomb Drill

Posted on the 25 April 2013 by Eowyn @DrEowyn

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

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!

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.
