Before And After Photos Of Suspicious Package (Updated & Bumped)
Yesterday, I posted pictures of what several news media outlets claimed were of the second bomb. They showed a very suspicious package beside a mailbox. (Scroll down below fold to view them.)My contention is that the package was not the bomb, and that news sites, including Breitbart, were irresponsible for not doing even the most basic investigation to determine accuracy of the reporting. To add to my response, I found these photographs of the second explosion. The first image is the actual explosion. The second image, taken from the opposite end of the street, shows smoke plume immediately after the explosion:

Also, there is NO clear dmg to the side of the mailbox. If the bomb was where that bag was the side of that box would have been damaged way more.
If you look at the video of that explosion from the runners point of view and pause it right when it goes off, you can clearly see that the point of origin appears to be mid sidewalk. That leaves between the tree and the railing ofthe Forumpatio restaurant.
I agree and give this a, "meh...I dont see it."

If this is the bomb a lot of runners would have been hit directly.

Obviously not from the videos all the smoke and flash is in or behind the crowd on the sidewalk side of the fence.

Some conservative blogs have been disappointing, so far you and Ace of Spades are the only blogs that I frequent that have reported this responsibly. Gateway-pundit in particular seems to have gone completely off the rails.
There is just so much wild speculation out there.
