The Saginaw office of Michigan Democratic Sen. Carl Levin received a “suspiciouslooking letter.”404 We do not yet know if this was a false alarm, or related to the Ricin letters.
Saudi Student (3 Apr 16 B)
This is a fantasy of media misinformation.405 However, it is worth a mention because most all the major TV news media were repeating massive amounts of information from this fiction “story” for many hours after multiple briefings from the authorities, totally refuting it. According to the fantasy story: Before the explosion, people in the Marathon witnessed a man who was acting suspiciously. After the explosion, he ran away, and people chased him, because they thought he was one of the bombers, because he had been acting suspiciously before the event. He ended up in Brigham and Women’s Hospital with burns on his hands, which is suspicious. Maybe he set the bomb, and did not get away fast enough. The police questioned him, then arrested him. He is a Saudi National in the USA on a Student Visa. Again, the authorities have repeatedly informed us that 100% of the above story is a total fantasy, untrue, it never happened. However, for many many hours after these news briefings, most of the major news media were repeating the fantasy, expanding upon it. Yes, there was a wounded Saudi, yes the police spoke with him, and the 100+ other wounded. He has been totally exonerated.406 However, the search at the Revere apartment was allegedly that of a 20 year old Saudi national.407 Two separate Saudis have been mentioned in news reports.
Secondary devices (3 Apr 16 B)
There have been scattered stories of alleged secondary devices found, which may turn out to be false. I plan to copy, to here, various claims of where these devices were found, and what is known about them so far. Some of this info also exists, where I originally placed them, in some other context. Press briefings on April-16 say that no unexploded bombs were found.

Boston Bombed on Patriot’s Day 2013 5/11/2013 11:41:28 PM
People run away from the explosions, dropping innocent stuff in the process, which then becomes suspicious packages, most of which turn out to not be secondary devices. Two unexploded devices were found, early on, according to lots of news media. The general public was never told where they were found, although HLN is reporting that one was at the Mandarin Oriental hotel and another at an undisclosed location.408 The police performed a controlled explosion on at least one of them, which I am guessing is the one at the 600 block of Boylston street, 409 as reported via Wikipedia. The New York Times reports there may have been as many as five devices:410 Locations included: St. James and Trinity Streets Newton, outside of Boston.
Senate Suspicious Packages (3 Apr 17)
As of April-17 mid day, I began to see reports of suspicious packages in the Senate Building. When there are multiple reports of one event, two of same kind, three, “another”, we have no way of knowing if some stories are lumping together the same, or totally independent stories. After the Boston Bombing, people ran, they got separated from their families, their possessions, which were then found and considered to be suspicious, so there was false reporting labeling the stuff as secondary devices, before investigations completed. We can be having that type of chaotic reporting again here. 2 suspicious packages were found in US Senate offices in the Hart and Russell Senate Office Buildings.411 There may be more than two. U.S. Capitol Police have removed several suspicious packages from the Hart and Russell Senate Office Buildings. Earlier Wednesday, loudspeaker alerts announced the discovery of packages on the first and third floors of Hart, while an email to the Senate community notified offices that police were responding to “a suspicious envelope on the third floor of the Russell Senate Office Building.” The email directed “all staff and other personnel” to “avoid this area until further notice.” Other news organizations reported that the suspicious envelope was found in the office of Alabama Republican Sen. Richard C. Shelby.412

Boston Bombed on Patriot’s Day 2013 5/11/2013 11:41:28 PM
A small town in northern Syria sent condolences to the city of Boston after last Monday's bombing, creating an unexpected link between the two countries. The town of Kafranbel is famous for creative banners at weekly anti-government protests, many of them in English, and they had one for Boston, on April 19. Bostonians responded with thanks of their own through social media April 20. 413
Terror definition (3 Apr 16)
Whether the suspects are to be charged with terrorism or not will depend upon the Attorney General’s office, but in the mean time the investigation will treat this as both a criminal investigation, and a terrorism investigation, because that sucks in many resources. Multiple strikes attempted justifies the terrorism labeling. In the USA, terrorism is defined based on political motivation, so until the investigation finds out who did it and why, this label is for purposes of investigation resources only. In other nations, terrorism is defined based on the effect on victims, terrorizing them, so this event is labeled as terrorism everywhere in the world, except where it happened. Some officials say it is terrorism, for political reasons.414 We might never learn who did it. Remember that the Atlanta Olympics was by a domestic terrorist who did not take credit for it.
Terrorista License Plate (3 May 05)
Although the two Kazakh students arrested May-2 are not accused of being part of the bombing plot, questions have arisen about a novelty l icense plate, “Terrorista #1,” that appeared on the front of the BMW they drove. Tazhayakov’s father dismissed suggestions that the plate carried any sinister significance. “Terrorista #1 doesn’t mean Osama bin Laden, doesn’t mean ‘terrorist.’ In their sla ng, it means happy-go-lucky, a leader of the pack, that sort of thing, and not that they’re going to blow someone up,” Tazhayakov’s father, Amir Ismagulov, told a Kazakh television station recently. “They drove around in that car for four months, and no on e arrested them.” 415
Time Travelling News Media (3 Apr 18 B)
Maybe some day there will be an arrest in this case. In their rush to be first to announce a scoop, many news media are reporting events before and at a time when the authorities are saying those stories are totally untrue.

April 17: CNN says suspects arrested. DoJ says untrue.416 At least thru Apr 17, multiple news outlets were saying that the FBI had photos of a dark skinned male placing a package, where a bomb later exploded, then backed away. Untrue, according to the FBI, that same day,
Watch vs. Warning (3 May 01)
The terrorist watch list is just to identify some people flying via airlines & coming & going across US borders. It is not *really* a list of terrorists. That would be a *warning* list like a weather report. A watch list = we think we might have a problem, but we do not know for sure. A warning list = we know for sure there is a problem. I watched a hearing in Congress on C-Span about this, late in April 2013. Russia asked FBI for an investigation. The FBI gets hundreds of such requests every week. The FBI investigated, could not find any problem. The FBI asked Russia for information, got none. Russia then asked the CIA. We do not know anything about what the CIA did, other than ask Russia for information, got none. So the target ends up on the terrorist watch list, not because the US gov thinks he’s a terrorist, but because there was an investigation, but nothing found. It is a closed case. So the guy takes a plane flight. It causes a ping for DHS. They look it up & see that the investigation has been closed, with no negative info, so they drop it then & there. After Boston Bombing suspects identified, FBI again asks Russia for info, gets none. FBI has gone to Russia to knock on some doors higher up the government food chain. They are now getting some info, which would have been helpful to have had a couple years ago.
