At the starting line this morning, they had bomb sniffing dogs and the bomb squad out there, he said.They kept announcing to runners not to be alarmed, that they were running a training exercise, Stevenson told AL.com .
The question sounds crazy, but did you know that eyewitnesses at the Boston Marathon confirmed that authorities announced a drill before the bomb explosions? Furthermore, did you also know that prior to the bombings that bomb sniffing dogs were already at the finish line? Did you also know that prior to the bombings authorities repeatedly announced over loud speakers that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about? In fact, when a reporter asked Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick about the announcements of the drill to the crowd at a press conference he was summarily ignored.
