It's been a couple weeks now since I bought up the issue of the lack of bomb dogs at the Boston Marathon and it's not that I'm obsessed with it but, ever since then I've been viewing every picture of the Marathon Start and Finish line I can get my hands on, yet and I'll be damned if I can find ANY definitive photos showing a dog anywhere at the Marathon. There are tons of photos now showing dogs post event as people exit Boston (day late and a dollar short) but, nadda of bomb dogs at the event. The University Mobile Cross Country Coach, Ali Stevenson participated in the Marathon and gave an interview statement saying something to the effect that he saw "bomb dogs" on roofs and at the start/finish line..... he'd never seen so many bomb dogs before. This ***singular*** statement has been almost universally plugged in to the post Marathon analysis dialog but, IMO it doesn't "wash" with the photo evidence out there. How the hell can a cross country track coach identify "bomb dogs" on a roof... from the street below?... he must be one helluva dog expert! There are tons of photos of the start and finish line from media and people in attendance and I've yet to see a single photo with a dog in it. It's like his statement was canned/scripted and purposefully interjected into the dialog.... something doesn't fit here. But then, there's A LOT that still doesn't "fit" the template that's being spoon fed the American public on this incident. I guess I shouldn't be so nosey eh? Hey, WTF do I know???
Thx for the good blog...stay safe :)
