Saudi National Under Guard After Bombing
100 Wounded, According to Boston Globe

He had shrapnel woulds. Another report says he was seen running from the explosions -- I assume this means he was seen running from the explosions, before they happened. Or else it would make no sense.

Authorities have confirmed to The Post that they have identified a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.

The suspect — a Saudi national who suffered shrapnel wounds in today's blast — is currently being guarded in a Boston hospital.

A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.

CNN had on an expert who of course immediately launched his suspicions at American conservatives.

He also claimed Al Qaeda was a "rightwing" organization. He thought the crime might have been carried off by either Al Qaeda or "a different rightwing organization."

I'm still waiting for confirmation that Wolf Blitzer let out a similar speculation earlier.

More: Cell phone coverage in Boston has been shut down by authorities, to prevent the possibility of cell phones being used to detonate more bombs.

Blitzer Innocent? If this is the only reference he made as far as "Patriots Day," then he did not speculate that this was the doing of "anti-tax groups."

However, even though Buzzfeed presents this as case closed, Blitzer was on the air a long time. I'm still waiting to see if anyone can confirm the claim that he mentioned "anti-tax" groups.

If this was the only reference, then he was unfairly accused.

Although he does suggestively say "It is Patriots Day," well, that's a fact. I wondered about that myself (though my thinking was more along the lines of this-- just as they'd chosen American Airlines for terrorism on 9/11, so might the perp have chosen Patriots Day for this latest carnage).

As it's an interesting fact, I think, that might have something to do with any of this (it could just as easily have nothing to do with any of this, of course) I can't see the harm in noting it.

Update: Ignore false reports that the cops have no "suspect" in custody. Cops don't want to call anyone a suspect until they slap the bracelets on. They parse words and call people a "person of interest" until they're ready for an arrest.

When you're a detainee (or subject to detaining, should you ask to leave) your right to counsel attaches. Not so if you're a "person of interest."

So while cops shoot down the NYPost's story that a "suspect" is in "custody," sources are confirming that they have a "person of interest."
