          April 19, 2013 at 1:43 am

          I had just read the post on the last thread about Jeff Bauman – who saw the marathon bomber – and then everyone was talking about this new incident. Then we have Texas screaming for the Feds to help with a man-made factory disaster while most of their reps voted against Sandy aid – and I don’t know how you folks take in everything that is happening.

          Thus said – I hope they are connected – it would make much more sense – but why should I expect guns and bombs to make any type of sense.

    CNN is going to Jake Tapper, who said, “I didn’t realize you were talking to me.” Now, he’ll try to spit out his report.

        Exactly. Turn out the lights at CNN one Friday night, regroup, and come back Monday with a whole new crowd. Jake Tapper sounds so scared during his report that he can barely speak – not that I wouldn’t be, but I’m not a professional on-scene reporter.

            Jake is calling 1:46 a.m. “the middle of the night,” more or less complaining he was called out. Get a life, Jake.

                First Tapperware said only local law enforcement was in Watertown, and just now he said he had an “update” that the FBI was there. We heard that much, much earlier (not on CNN). But the ghastly part is that he even said earlier he was out and about in the scary darkness “because the FBI was there.” Now, another guy is saying he saw “one guy in an FBI jacket get out of a car.” This is like a horror show.

    Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him.

    Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.

    Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. A picture of him in a wheelchair, bloodied and ashen, was broadcast around the world as he was rushed to Boston Medical Center. He lost both legs below the knee.

    “He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview.

    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-19/boston-bombing-victim-in-iconic-photo-helped-identify-

    This explains why the FBI were so confident about the identities of the Boston Marathon bomber. Jeff Bauman is truly a hero.
