"Natural News" claims that there were suspicious exercises on the same day as the Boston Marathon bombings http://www.naturalnews.com/039926_Boston_marathon_bombing_terrorism.html No, really, it's not. The Library is directly opposite where the first bomb went off, hence "opposite the library", is the sidewalk, where the bomb exploded. Lots of people dropped their bags as they ran. "Natural News" seems to be deliberately conflating the fire at the JFK Library with the controlled explosion opposite the public library. The tweets regarding the controlled explosion were: (Times are Pacific, so 12:53 pacific is 3:53 Eastern, the bombing was at 2:50 Eastern, so these are about an hour after the bombing) BREAKING NEWS: Police will have controlled explosion on 600 block on Boylston Street— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 15, 2013 Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 15, 2013 Obviously referring to the same thing, and simply clarifying the location. Then AN HOUR LATER, they hear of the "explosion" at the JFK library: BREAKING NEWS: Third incident: explosion earlier today at the JFK library— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 15, 2013 (Notice it's not "The Library", which is what they call the main Boston Public Library, as you would expect). And much later they note it seems to be just a fire: UPDATE: Fire at JFK library earlier today likely unrelated to marathon bombings http://t.co/RE3fNptWmL via @GlobeVasznis @GlobeCullen— The Boston Globe (@BostonGlobe) April 15, 2013 (Above image via Reddit, not sure of the source, but the positions are accurate) Natural News seems to basically just making things up to fulfill their preconceived idea of what happened.
