Still no mention of the 'controlled demolition drill' in the Boston Globe:

http://www.bostonglobe.com/


http://bostonglobe.com/metro/2013/04/15/explosions-rock-boston-maratho n-finish-line-dozens-injured/yLhfDT1XC3HXSa8wPiVijL/story.html

' Davis (Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis) had initially said that there had been a third explosion at the John F. Kennedy Library in Dorchester. But he downplayed those comments at a later news conference, suggesting that the incident might have been “an incendiary device or a fire” and saying the incident had not been directly linked to the marathon explosions...'

As though the Police Commissioner would not have know precisely what went down at the library, and wouldn't have to 'suggest' that 'it might have been' this, that or the other.

Newtown families had VIP seats near Boston Marathon blasts as race honored Sandy Hook victims

Published time: April 16, 2013 01:30

Family members of those killed in the massace at Sandy Hook Elementary School last year were seated near the site of the first of the two coordinated explosions at the Boston Marathon Monday, adding more heartbreak to the already tragic day.

None of the relatives are reported to have been injured, but their presence was notable because each mile in this year’s race was dedicated to an individual killed on December 14, 2012. The final leg of the marathon also held a tribute to those killed in Newtown, Connecticut.

Before the race Boston Athletic Association President Joanne Flamino said it was of “special significance” that the marathon is 26.2 miles long and 26 people died in the mass shooting.

There was a 26-second moment of silence for the Sandy Hook victims, and a group of Newtown parents were among the nine community members running in the race.

“In the first twenty miles we’re honoring the twenty Sandy Hook first graders,” Laura Nowaci, a spokeswoman for the Newtown Strong Fund, which fundraises for those affected by the shooting, told WBUR in Boston. “When we crest Heartbreak Hill, and we’re coming back towards Boston, we run the final six for our six fallen educators, including their lives, to protect our children.

“It’s just running, but we want our steps to count,” she added.

this is just the controlled detonation of a suspected 3rd device then not as some are claiming as anything to do with a bomb squad drill

please read these tweets in full, to me it says explosions gone off, bomb squad in attendance making area safe and detonating a possible 3rd device.
It seems to be the sole cause of the Bomb Drill allegations at this stage. Is reporting truly that shoddy these days? Or is there a more sinister plot to lead certain groups astray?

at this stage it seems the allegations of bomb drills are erroneous and maybe deliberate to set us (truthers) up. They seem to stem from a group of tweets from The Boston Globe and have been cherry picked to spread rumour

Three Mile Island emergency drill set for Tuesday afternoon
http://www.pennlive.com/midstate/index.ssf/2013/04/three_mile_island_e mergency_dr.html

Do not be alarmed if you see a lot of emergency vehicles setting up at Three Mile Island Tuesday afternoon.

Also, don't be concerned if you hear announcements from the nuclear power plant's public address system. It's all part of a drill.

Counties, municipalities and school districts within a 10-mile radius of the plant will take part in the drill, which simulates a variety of emergency scenarios. It's part of a plan to ensure emergency workers on and off site can be ready to respond in the event of a real emergency.

Federal officials will evaluate the responders performance.

The offsite emergency sirens will not be used during the drill. If you hear them, pay attention.

Thanks for that work D_D, best to check everything out before assuming anything as fact.

It might pay to check the forensic information coming out about the explosive devices. If that is confusing and misleading, you can be fairly sure they have something to hide and don't want to be pinned down.

This summary of news articles from CLG

Breaking News and Commentary from Citizens for Legitimate Government

All links are here:
http://www.legitgov.org/#breaking_news

Note: CLG-authored blurbs regarding the Boston explosions are below, in chronological order. Their links only point to the summaries themselves. I wanted to retain the original posts, should the media's 'recollection of events' begin to... shall we say... 'morph.' --LRP

Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Boston Explosions - UM Coach 15 Apr 2013 University of Mobile's Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines. "They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before. "Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."

'Marathon as Dry-Run Disaster' 21 Apr 2008 Today thousands of runners and hundreds of thousands of spectators are unwittingly taking part in a planned disaster. Yet, they are not just safe from harm (except for the variety brought on by running 26.2 miles), they also are participants in an event that will make the citizens of Greater Boston safer in case of a natural catastrophe or terrorist attack. Primary responsibility for the health and well-being of both runners and spectators in Boston rests with Boston Emergency Medical Service (BEMS), along with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Emergency Management Agency. According to BEMS chief Richard Serino, his department considers events like the marathon and the Fourth of July celebration as "planned disasters" - safe, controlled environments that present "an opportunity to test some things you would never want to test in a real disaster." ...Massachusetts is better prepared for a real disaster because every Patriot's Day and Fourth of July is treated as a "disaster."

Boston runners were warned: Squamish man 15 Apr 2013 (British Columbia) Runners getting set to take part in the Boston Marathon were warned beforehand that they were going to die, said a Squamish resident who took part in the race. Three people were killed and more than 140 were injured when two bombs exploded near the finish line of the famed 42.2-kilometre running event on Monday (April 15). Mike Heiliger, 59, said a woman holding several bags was telling runners who were picking up their pre-race packages in downtown Boston on Saturday (April 13) that they were going to die if they participated in the event.

As Boston reels, New York City put on high alert 16 Apr 2013 In New York City, the New York Police Department immediately beefed up security at major attractions, hotels and high-traffic spots yesterday. "We're stepping up security at hotels and other prominent locations in the city through deployment of the NYPD's critical response vehicles until more about the explosion is learned," NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said. After cops were briefed by NYPD counterterror officials about "what the concerns were in Boston, what to look for here," Browne said, critical response vehicles swarmed Times Square, the Empire State Building and Radio City Music Hall. Up to 100 cops cars rallied at one point in Times Square.

Tight security will be the rule in Boston today --'That area is pretty much going to be locked down' --Governor Deval Patrick 16 Apr 2013 Boston will be largely open for business on Tuesday, but so much will be different, as a wounded city awakens to higher security and heightened vigilance following the deadly bombings at the Boston Marathon. Heavily armed police will be out in force. Bags will be searched on the ­MBTA. And the area around Copley Square will remain a crime scene, closed to the public. Not since the Sept. 11 attacks has Boston witnessed such a show of martial power coupled with a sense of vulnerability and grief. The scores of rifle-wielding state troopers, National Guard members in fatigues, and municipal SWAT teams who descended on the city Monday will continue to patrol on Tuesday, particularly around the finish line of the marathon in the Back Bay.

Boston Bombs Force Game Cancellations as London Reviews Security 16 Apr 2013 The twin bombings that turned the Boston Marathon finish line into a terror scene reverberated throughout sports, forcing cancellations in the National Basketball Association and National Hockey League and a review of security plans for the London Marathon this weekend. Two powerful explosions disrupted the 116-year-old Boston race, killing at least three people and hospitalizing at least 128. Last night's NHL game in Boston, where the Bruins were to host the Ottawa Senators, was postponed. The NBA canceled tonight’s Indiana at Boston game.

Canadian security agencies on alert after Boston explosions 15 Apr 2013 Canadian security officials are closely monitoring the situation in Boston for any potential threats to this country after two explosions struck the Boston Marathon. The Canada Border Services Agency and the RCMP are "exercising increased vigilance at points of entry into Canada," according to a spokeswoman for Public Safety Minister Vic Toews. The Canadian consulate-general, located a few blocks from the site of the blast, bolstered security after the blasts, but all diplomats and employees were safe and accounted for, government officials said.

Security Boosted Across US After Boston Blasts --The Federal Aviation Administration places a no-fly zone over the site of the explosions as officials respond around the US. 15 Apr 2013 Police in cities across the US have begun stepping up security following the explosions at the Boston Marathon. US Secret Service spokesman Ed Donovan said the president's security detail has expanded the perimeter at the White House "out of an abundance of caution". Critical response teams have been deployed around New York City, and officials are increasing security at hotels and other prominent locations, according to chief NYPD spokesman Paul Brown. Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore says the department has opened an emergency operations centre, increased patrols for transit and other critical areas including the Los Angeles Dodgers game.

Boston Marathon blasts prompt LAPD to beef up sports-event security 15 Apr 2013 Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck said Monday his department will increase officer deployments at sporting events in response to explosions that killed at least two and injured nearly two dozen others at the Boston Marathon...Beginning with the Dodgers-San Diego Padres baseball game Monday evening, Beck said the additional police presence would include deployment of bomb-squad personnel, dogs and other "precautions geared to preventing a similar event."
Navy bomb unit sent to Boston --State National Guard troops at scene 15 Apr 2013 The Navy has sent one of its bomb-disposal units to Boston to assist local authorities as needed in the aftermath of the two explosions near the Boston Marathon's finish line. The blasts killed two and injured more than 100. The three-member explosive ordnance disposal team based at Naval Station Newport, R.I., was sent to Massachusetts after state officials asked for help. Authorities are investigating the bombings and also are checking other bags and packages that may have been left unattended as terrified crowds races away from the chaos Monday.

FBI takes charge in law enforcement probe of Boston Marathon explosions 15 Apr 2013 The FBI is taking charge in the criminal investigation of the explosions at the Boston Marathon. The announcement came Monday night at a news conference in Boston whose participants included Richard DesLauriers, the agent in charge of the FBI in Boston. The FBI said it is seeking information, visual images or details regarding the explosions along the marathon route and elsewhere.

Lawmakers call Boston bombing an 'act of terror' 15 Apr 2013 The bombs that exploded near the finish line at the Boston Marathon Monday are considered a terrorist attack by several Capitol Hill lawmakers, even as President Obama refrained using that description earlier in the day. "I think it has all the hallmarks of an act of terrorism," House Homeland Security Committee chairman Mike McCaul, R-Texas, said. "Multiple bombings simultaneously. A mass casualty event - spectacular event - that's what they always try to focus and target. So, to me, it's got all the hallmarks of that and I believe that it is and the only remaining issue is who are the perpetrators and what's the motivation behind it."

3 killed, at least 144 injured in Boston Marathon blasts 15 Apr 2013 Three people were killed and 144 others were injured this afternoon as two powerful explosions detonated in quick succession near the Boston Marathon finish line in Boston’s Back Bay section, transforming a scene of athletic celebration into bloody chaos. When the smoke cleared from what officials said may have been a terrorist attack, dozens of victims lay in the street, some unconscious, some grievously injured, including some whose limbs had been torn off by the blast. Blood and broken glass covered sidewalks in the area after the blasts occurred at about 2:50 p.m.

Police Searching Apartment in Boston Suburb 15 Apr 2013 A television station is reporting that police are searching an apartment in a Boston suburb, and authorities confirm the search is part of the investigation into the explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon. WBZ-TV reports that police are searching the apartment in Revere. Massachusetts State Police confirmed that a search warrant was served Monday night but provided no further details.

Dow falls more than 200 points after Boston explosions 15 Apr 2013 A sell-off in stocks accelerated Monday afternoon following the news of explosions at the Boston Marathon. The Dow Jones industrial average, which had been in the red all day, fell 266 points, or 1.8%. About 120 points of that drop took place following the reports of the explosions in Boston. The S&P 500 lost 2.3% and the Nasdaq slipped 2.4%.

Boston Marathon runners for Newtown safe, finished before blasts 15 Apr 2013 Six members of the Newtown Strong team who ran the Boston Marathon on Monday are OK, according to a Facebook post from the group. "Members of the Newtown Strong team which ran in today's marathon are safe. All runners completed the race before the explosions happened," the post said. The runners ran the 26.2-mile event to honor the 26 people who were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14. The Newtown Patch reported there were six runners from the town in the race, including Laura Nowacki, whose daughter survived the shooting.

Suspect being 'held in Boston hospital' with severe injuries while another man is pictured in handcuffs 15 Apr 2013 A potential suspect in the Boston marathon attacks is being guarded by police in a local hospital, according to reports. CBS News and the New York Post have reported that there is a Saudi national in custody who was near the scene of the blasts, which were detonated near the finish line of the Boston marathon, injuring more than 100 people and killing at least two. A civilian claimed the person was acting suspiciously and chased him down and tackled him after the explosions, the CBS News correspondent reported.

"Marathon as Dry-Run Disaster"

Op-Ed, Boston Globe

April 21, 2008

Author: Arnold Bogis, Former Fellow, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs



TODAY thousands of runners and hundreds of thousands of spectators are unwittingly taking part in a planned disaster. Yet, they are not just safe from harm (except for the variety brought on by running 26.2 miles), they also are participants in an event that will make the citizens of Greater Boston safer in case of a natural catastrophe or terrorist attack.

Primary responsibility for the health and well-being of both runners and spectators in Boston rests with Boston Emergency Medical Service (BEMS), along with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and Emergency Management Agency. According to BEMS chief Richard Serino, his department considers events like the marathon and the Fourth of July celebration as "planned disasters" - safe, controlled environments that present "an opportunity to test some things you would never want to test in a real disaster."

Although the principal goal during such events remains the safety of everyone involved, organizers have realized that these annual gatherings of hundreds of thousands of people present the perfect opportunity to evaluate new technologies, exercise disaster plans, and build vital relationships between public safety agencies and the private sector.

For example, a tracking system that utilizes barcodes and hand scanners to log a patient's condition and location has been tested during past races. During a real disaster, this technology could provide authorities quick access to the location and condition of casualties, information that currently takes hours, if not days, for friends and families of the injured to ascertain.

This year, as always, even more important than testing new technologies is the development of relationships between various public safety and medical communities, as well as with the private sector. Homeland security specialists often talk about the importance of not waiting to "exchange business cards at the scene of a disaster." This means that counterparts from different agencies meet each other before a disaster thrusts them together for the first time.

Treating these large, annual events as opportunities to test the disaster response system accomplishes exactly that. Personnel from public safety and health departments meet regularly during the year to plan these events. New officials will quickly meet their counterparts in other agencies. As described in a recent Globe story about how close the 2007 race came to being cancelled due to weather, a unified command is established where all the relevant organizations can monitor the event and react together if something goes wrong.

This cooperation extends beyond Boston. Thousands of runners pass through eight different towns on their way to the finish line. Coordinating medical care and security for the runners and spectators strengthens connections that will be relied upon when Boston requires mutual aid to deal with a crisis such as a natural disaster or terrorist attack.

To successfully manage the marathon, BEMS and other public safety agencies must have relationships not just with the Boston Athletic Association, which organizes the race, but also with a diverse set of private organizations. These include, but are not limited to, private ambulance services that back up BEMS, and hotels and other businesses along the route that help make the behind-the-scenes operation of the marathon run smoothly. When a real disaster strikes, these contacts can be called upon to lend needed supplies and other assistance.

This type of innovation is not limited to Massachusetts. In Washington,D.C., the city's evacuation plan is tested during the mass exodus of people after the fireworks finale at the Fourth of July festivities. California has developed medical surge plans to be used after catastrophes such as an earthquake in San Francisco or a nuclear terrorist attack in Los Angeles. The New York Police Department has created robust intelligence and counter-terrorism divisions to protect its residents.

Massachusetts is better prepared for a real disaster because every Patriot's Day and Fourth of July is treated as a "disaster." Instead of constant warnings about the inevitability of another terrorist attack or natural catastrophe, the public would be better served if this type of local homeland security innovation were promoted and adopted elsewhere.

Petitioning Seth MacFarlane
Demand that Seth MacFarlane make a public accounting for his foreknowledge of the Boston Bombing

Petition by

Matthew Chojnacki

United States


The Family Guy show aired an episode (S11E15 - Turban Cowboy) on March 17th, 2013 that portrayed obvious and distasteful jokes about a national tragedy that would not happen for another month. The references were not coincidental, they were foreknowledge hidden in plain sight. There are other clear indications that the Boston Bombing was planned by criminal elements who held power over the Boston police force and could organize drills and tragedy protocols. Demand that Seth MacFarlane publicly accounts for how he had this inside knowledge and apologize to the victims for joking about their deaths a month before they happened.
To:
Seth MacFarlane
Tell the world how you knew that the Boston Marathon would be bombed twice. The references in your show are not coincidental, they are purposeful. Not only are they in the "Turban Cowboy" episode of Family Guy, they are also hidden in the April 14th episode of American Dad. This is distasteful. Redeem yourself by sacrificing your security and admitting to having foreknowledge handed to you by criminal elements. Name them, or their organization, publicly. You have the power to serve justice by letting people know that the real perpetrators are not whoever the mainstream media will blame this on. If you want to make a positive impact on the world, this is your opportunity, this is your chance.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

It looks like there has been a lot of confusion re the badly injured man in the wheel-chair.

This link may help to resolve it; it looks very much like Nick Vogt is NOT the man:

Bomb squads searched the area, said Steve MacDonald, a spokesman for the Boston Fire Department. Officials said another explosion, heard in the city around 4 p.m., was a “controlled blast” staged as part of bomb squad activity.



Quote:
Blood and broken glass covered sidewalks in the area after the blasts occurred at about 2:50 p.m.



Unlikely to be a pre planned drill as they wouldnt carry on with it after the earlier blasts. More likely a controlled explosion of a suspect package.

Sniffer dogs are more interesting--did they have some intel about possible bombing. Were these sniffer dogs present at previous boston marathons? May just be standard practice having them at big events

UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Spotters on Roofs Before Explosions
http://www.local15tv.com/news/local/story/UM-Coach-Bomb-Sniffing-Dogs- Spotters-on-Roofs/BrirjAzFPUKKN8z6eSDJEA.cspx
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
"Evidently, I don't believe they were just having a training exercise," Stevenson said. "I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."
CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.
Stevenson had just finished the marathon before the explosions. Stevenson said his wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
"We are just so thankful right now," Stevenson said.

CNN Reports Suspicious Ricin Poison-Tainted Letter Intercepted On Way To Senate
by Matt Wilstein | 6:31 pm, April 16th, 2013 VIDEO » 106 comments

CNN’s Dana Bash reported Tuesday evening that a letter laced with ricin poison was sent to an unidentified Senate office. The letter was allegedly intercepted at an offsite Washington mail facility and never made it to its intended destination.

The letter tested positive for ricin poison three times and at this time, there is no word on which Senate office the letter was sent to. As Bash reported, Ricin is “highly poisonous, even in small quantities.”

Bash broke the news on Twitter before delivering

UPDATE (6:40pm ET): The Associated Press is reporting that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has confirmed that the letter was addressed to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS).

Senator Roger Wicker tied into Boston Bombing
Posted on April 16, 2013 by Henry Shivley
http://www.fromthetrenchesworldreport.com/senator-roger-wicker-tied-in to-boston-bombing/41289/
As a patsy is still being sought in the Boston Marathon bombing, tell tale signs seem to be indicating that the unlucky candidate will be depicted as a pro gun patriot. Coincidentally, one day after the bombing, a 600 page report was released affirming US government conducting torture after 9/11. The question is posed, if as the report indicates, international and US laws were broken, what shall be the consequence? And the answer is, more torture and further indications that say torture should be directed towards the perpetrator or perpetrators of the Boston bombing.

The communists have come full circle and are plugging in the final elements designed to accomplish the takeover of the US via the overthrow of the US Bill of Rights.

As previously mentioned, the emphases is being directed toward connecting the bombing with US national patriots, and another little bit of sleaze has now been injected.

News is just breaking that contends that an envelope sent to Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) contained ricin, a deadly poison. Now one might ask how the Senator, the ricin, and the bombing are connected.

Senator Roger Wicker is one of the sixteen GOP Senators who voted to stop the filibuster which would have shut down the 2nd Article infringement debate which is going on this week in the US Senate. Wicker has been named as a traitor to the Republic by the patriot community, as he and the other fifteen Senators voted for the debate in spite of the fact that they had previously identified the gun legislation as an infringement upon our Bill of Rights, making the act one with knowledge and forethought.

The communists who monitor the internet are not ignorant to the fact that many patriots have called for the arrest and trial of all sixteen of these wanton traitors. Could it be that the communist insurgency is planning more such incidents in an effort to create an illusion wherein American patriots are committing terrorist acts in an effort to …. what, provide an excuse to institute full martial law?

The ways of our enemies are diabolical. So much so that they fail to see that they have put themselves in a position wherein they are fooling no one. The American nationals are not the psychopathic haters of humanity, but rather those posing as our government are, as evidenced in the 600 page report which identifies them as not only national, but international criminals of the highest degree.

Who could possibly believe anything put forth by psychopaths that would torture another human being? How dare they even so much as imply that we American national patriots are capable of the treachery they practice as the status quo?

God bless the Republic, death to the international corporate mafia, we shall prevail.

Boston bombing outage rumors shed light on mobile and Internet 'kill switch'
Get short URL Published time: April 17, 2013 01:20
AFP Photo / Saul Loeb
http://rt.com/usa/government-cell-kill-switch-979/

Following the Boston Marathon bombings, news began to spread of a US government cellphone network shutdown. While the claims were quickly shown to be false, a secret federal rule does, in fact, make such a shutdown possible.

While the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has in the past denied the existence of Standard Operating Procedure 303, as Ars Technica recently pointed out, the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) challenged the secrecy of such documents in 2012 by filing a Freedom of Information Act request.

What EPIC found via its lawsuit was that a 2007 report stated that the network shutdown policy was adopted in March of 2006. According to that report, the National Coordinating Center, a part of the DHS, was to be the main player in “any actions leading up to and following the termination of private wireless network connections, both within a localized area, such as a tunnel or bridge, and within an entire metropolitan area."

There has been particular focus on government possession of any sort of 'kill switch' over cell networks and internet service since the embattled government of Hosni Mubarak shut down both in Egypt at the height of protests in 2011.

That same year, when San Francisco’s transit authority made the decision to shut off cell phone networks within its metro service in anticipation of protests, critics were quick to point out the draconian implications.

Somewhat ironically, following the BART incident the Federal Communications Commission launched an investigation into the cell network shutdown that resulted in the government's so-called SOP 303 rule for that sort of activity. In their response to a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) query, wireless carriers such as AT&T stated that there was, in fact, no need for an inquiry, as government policy on shutting down private cell networks was already established.

"Federal and State authorities, the [FCC], wireless providers and other private stakeholders, have previously considered these issues in a cooperative process that resulted in the National Communications System’s Standard Operating Procedure 303," AT&T responded. "SOP 303 resolves the questions posed by the Commission in the Notice and eliminates the need for the Commission to reconsider those issues in this docket."

In plain English, what AT&T responded with in the case of the San Francisco cell network shutdown is that a little-known rule, which the DHS initially denied even existed, was already in effect - and that wireless carriers simply obliged with city government in its request.

In its initial FOIA filing, EPIC requested further information as well as justification for the secrecy behind SOP 303, which is officially understood as “a shutdown and restoration process for use by commercial and private wireless networks during national crises.”

At question is just what might constitute a national crisis, and by which government stakeholders. As Ars Technica, an IT news site reports, the DHS has yet to fully respond to EPIC, though it has already abandoned the idea that no such rule regarding government enactment of a cell network 'off switch' exists.

This means that the US government has procedures set in place to shut off private cell phone access across an entire metropolitan region, though it is not publicly understood by what criteria, or what precise process such a rule was anointed to homeland security.

DEVELOPING STORY: FBI confirms that letter sent to US President Barack Obama has initially tested positive for ricin.

In an intelligence bulletin obtained by AP, the FBI says that letter says: "To see a wrong and not expose it, is to become a silent partner to its continuance." The letter is signed, "I am KC and I approve this message." - LATEST UPDATES http://on.rt.com/6jsr4r
