It appears that the terrorists are heavily armed with military weapons and explosives. Where did they obtain them? Their weapons and explosives cannot be purchased legally. This raises the question of whether a black market for military grade weapons exists in our country, or whether the terrorists are part of a larger organization with the capability to smuggle weapons and explosives for distribution to cells and operators.

Common, wake up! Look outside and be a part of human society! This is real not a game show!

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had passed an apparently normal day at the school Wednesday, according to a UMass official, working out at the gym, then sleeping in his single-unit room at the Pine Dale Hall dorm that night, while law enforcement officials were frantically scanning photos and video trying to identify him and his brother.School officials know he was there Wednesday because of card swipes, but it was not clear if he had been there earlier. He was described as good, typical student who played intramural soccer. A student, who didn’t want...
