Eyewitnesses say men planned to attack University

Within hours of the FBI naming two culprits in the Boston bombings while aggressively demanding that no attention be focused  on any other potential suspects, police found themselves engaged in a deadly shootout with the two individuals, killing one while the other remains on the run.
“Two men identified by law enforcement sources as the Boston Marathon attack suspects — armed with explosives and guns — battled authorities in a Boston suburb early Friday morning, unleashing chaos until cops took one of the men into custody, and the other fled, the sources said. Officials later said the the suspect taken into custody died,” reports NBC News .
Doctors said the suspect had “suffered extreme trauma to his trunk area” and had “a combination of blast and gunshot wounds.”
Another suspect who was later released was held at gunpoint by police and later marched naked to a squad car.
Eyewitnesses said the suspects set off grenades to try to fight off police and that they also had what looked like backpacks and a “pressure cooker bomb,” matching the explosive device used in the Marathon bombings.
The standoff erupted shortly after a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer was shot dead after he investigated a disturbance on campus. Some have speculated that the suspects were preparing to attack the University.
One of the alleged culprits has been named by 4chan researchers as Sunil Tripathi, a student who has been missing from his Philadelphia apartment since March 16. It is believed that Tripathi, seen wearing a white hat in the FBI photos, is still on the run while his alleged accomplice is the one who was shot dead by police.
“The fact that Sunil Tripathi’s information was able to be dug up so quickly by 4Chan’s community and posted hours before the police even managed to engage Sunil in Watertown shows the lightning fast capabilities of alternative news and the internet at large,” writes Anthony Gucciardi . “This is why the mainstream media is failing to hold an audience and experiencing dwindling statistics while alternative news sources that capture the pulse of ongoing investigation manage to come out on top.”
If we accept that the suspect killed by police was involved in the bombings, any information he could have known about additional accomplices or the numerous private security men  that were also walking around the scene of the blast wearing heavy black backpacks, has now been buried.
In addition, a possible Saudi connection to the bombings  which led to a “person of interest” being deported shortly after the Saudi Foreign Minister held an unscheduled meeting with President Obama, will also be harder to uncover if police kill the remaining culprit.
In any case where wider involvement in a plot needs to be covered up, the best kind of pasty is a dead patsy, so don’t be surprised if Sunil Tripathi meets the same fate as his alleged accomplice within the next 24 hours. Dead men tell no tales.
If the suspects named by the FBI are the ones responsible for the bombings, they appear to have zero connection to the Tea Party, conservatives, gun owners, or libertarians, meaning the likes of Michael Moore and David Axelrod – who both asserted a Tea Party connection within hours of the bombing – got it completely wrong and owe conservatives a pretty hefty apology.
