Craft private security guards at marathon wore same black tops and backpacks by ThisCantBeHappening

I'm not a conspiracy-minded person, but something definitely stinks about this whole Boston Marathon bombing story.

From what we're reading about the case, the FBI had for two years been investigating Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old older brother killed during a shootout between police and the two brothers, Tamerlan and 19-year-old Dzhokhar. They had interviewed Tamerlan in his home, warned him they were watching what he ate, what he looked at on his computer, etc. They knew he had gone to Dagestan and Chechnya.

Then there's the money thing. We're told that Tamerlan had dropped out of community college because of money problems, right? Community college? That costs almost nothing to attend. That's the whole point of community colleges: everyone can afford them. And he was reportedly only going part-time! But then, the two brothers are driving around in a Mercedes and wearing fancy clothes?

We're talking about two brothers, both in school, with a father who was ill and living in Dagestan, who had worked as a curbside mechanic while in the US, and a mother who  had a home beauty salon business, who somehow were stylish dressers and drove around in an expensive car -- expensive to buy even used, and terribly expensive to maintain, too.

Where did all that money come from? We don't know. Tamerlan was reportedly working at things like delivering pizza during that period This while living with his wife and caring at home for their young daughter, now three. Tamerlan's wife was said to be supporting the struggling family by working "60-80 hours a week" as a home health care aide, one of the lowest-paying jobs you can find, often paying less than minimum wage. 

Why is all this troubling? Because time and time again, when purported terrorist plots are "disrupted" and alleged terrorists are arrested, it turns out they are inept dupes who have been led into their "plots" by FBI provocateurs.

So was this horrific Boston Marathon bombing yet another in this long string of FBI sting operations that perhaps went wrong? Or worse, was this, as both the Tsarnaev parents, now divorced and living separately in Dagestan, are suggesting, actually a "false flag" set-up by US intelligence agencies?

There are other curiosities about this whole affair...
