Private Military Contractors Under Suspicion for Boston Bombing

Activist Post

Yesterday, posted images of what they referred to as Navy SEALs in civilian field gear lurking at the finish line of the Boston Marathon where two bombs killed 3 and injured hundreds.

It turns out these men were Blackwater-like private military contractors from Craft International, according to investigative journalist Anthony Gucciardi of

The two mercenaries were wearing typical field gear of khaki tactical pants, combat boots, black coats, and carrying suspicious backpacks. But what really gives them away as Craft International mercs is the hat with the Punisher-like symbol on it.

Gucciardi writes:

There has been much discussion over the two individuals fitted with earpieces and military-esque gear spotted at the Boston Marathon, but as it turns out they may likely be employees of the Blackwater-style private military/security firm Craft International.

Craft International, modeled after Blackwater as an advanced private military training organization, was founded by the late ex-Navy SEAL Sniper Chris Kyle.

Either these serious-looking fellows are big fans of military contractors and want to emulate them, or they’re the real deal. In either case, they seem very suspicious to be at the scene of the crime clearly dressed in civilian mission gear.

Craft describes the reasoning behind the skull symbol as their logo:

Chris Kyle in his Craft gear

The story behind the Craft Skull logo combines several meaningful pieces of Chris Kyle’s life and service to this great nation but mainly honors his fallen teammates. As part of SEAL Team 3, Chris and his fellow teammates painted similar skulls on their gear in order to strike fear in the enemy. The crosshair symbolizes his time spent on a sniper rifle and is also in the form of a templar cross to symbolize his faith. Lastly, the crosshair is on the right eye to honor SO2 Ryan Job USN (SEAL), who was critically wounded when he was shot in the right eye while on deployment to Iraq in 2006. 

Following the successful rescue mission by Navy SEALs of freighter Captain Richard Phillips on Easter morning, 2009, Ryan Job was asked by a local reporter if he thought using Navy SEALs against Somali pirates was overkill. His response was, “despite what your mamma told you, violence does solve problems.” Ryan Job died in September of that year following complications during reconstructive surgery. 

The Craft Skull is a daily reminder to us all the sacrifices brave warriors have made and what it takes to triumph over evil.

Additionally, a third figure dressed identically is seen crossing the threshold of the finish line holding what appears to be some kind of remote control.

Will someone in the media have the courage to ask the authorities if these clearly suspicious characters are being considered as official suspects?

      I absolutely believe that Chris Kyle was the victim of the PTB. I do not believe that it “just happened”that the man with PTSD shot and killed him. NO WAY! TOO CONVENIENT. Kyle was murdered for the very same reason that the two gun guys were murdered….ie. the one was sot execution style in his office and the other died in a weird auto accident. Then Kyle was slaughtered!
      Come on………
      ,Lanza’s and Holme’s fathers involved in LIBOR. I believe that there was a judge who was shot at the Gabby Giffords shooting and that judge may have been presiding in this LIBOR stuff. He died instantly but there seems to be no MSM coverage of why he might have been killed.
      The one man who was murdered at the Wisconsin Sheik temple was the father of a young man who is deeply involved in the disclosure film put our by Dr. greer.

      Why is this in any way suspicious?

      You don’t think that an event which draws 500,000+ people might require security and protection beyond what the local PD could provide?

      You don’t think that the City of Boston might have contracted with a private firm to provide additional security?

      No, of course not…has to be a false flag. Because if government ops were going to perpetrate a false flag black op they would all show up wearing the EXACT SAME CLOTHES so they could be easily identified. They wouldn’t try to blend in or wear a disguise. No, of course not.

      It’s call distract and confuse…they may have been bit players but not the actual players….used to draw attention to them and away from the real players…as you can see, it worked…bottom line they were nothing more than contractors paid to be in the picture but……the cell phone use may be a sign they knew what was about to happen. If you can determine the time they were on the phone then you’ll know….actors in the grand play and will appear again…Remember this: When brother betrays sister, look for the end…..
