CNN has botched more stories over the last year than the Post, Fox News, ABC, and MSNBC combined. They are the last one I would trust for accurate information.

Got to think as well that as it's a public event with loads of people someone will have captured the person that did it too.

Yep, lets just hope there's no more harm done...

This place is a sick world... Someday we'll all be constraint to live like prisoners because of things like that.

The guy assigned to carry backpacks with bombs in them is probably not the criminal mastermind. There's a good chance he either a) wanted to go down with the ship or b) had no idea how far shrapnel would fly.

CNN has backed off a little over the past year, after they got embarrassed last year trying to be first on a big story.

Given how many unexploded devices they're finding, might mean the guy derped and got himself caught in the explosion before he could detonate the rest... At least I can only hope that is the case.

There'll be lots of speculation and accusations. Best to wait until we have information from the police.

Why isn't he helping? Stopped around 1.5 mins. Couldn't watch. He was just standing there? Do something man, don't just film it.

So you think this is a somewhat organized group thing then? I guess if all the locations are linked that makes sense.

JFK Library confirmed as an attack site of a 3rd incident. Unbelievable.
