% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
April 17, 2013

Savvy Internet sleuths have found images taken from surveillance
cameras that positively identify members of the crowd gathered at the
Boston Marathon as Navy SEALs.

For comparison, below are a few photos of late Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
Note the skull logo on his baseball cap, his pants and his boots:

Now look at the individuals spotted wearing backpacks, a similar cap, and similar pants (and boots) at the Boston Marathon:

      Yep, inside job AGAIN.

    • AlexJonesisanAsshat

      These guys are wearing “suspicious” backpacks in the first picture – which was taken AFTER THE BOMBS WENT OFF. Above the finish line, to the right of the van: .

      That’s pretty disgusting to crop a photo that is clearly taken after the blast, and try to blame service members based on no proof whatsoever.

      • Ranger_Ric

        Nobody said they had the bombs or placed them, I don’t think that is what was implied at all.

        The question is… What were they doing there?

        They are retired and work for a merc outfit like blackwater from what I have read… what was their mission there? Don’t tell me they are just there to observe the race as civilians, I don’t buy that for one second so what exactly was their mission on that corner, at that time?

        Undercover security hired by the state or city for this event?

        That is plausible but if they are there in that capacity would it not be their job to assist? Being that close to the scene would they not take immediate command and control of the situation? They didn’t so I ask again… what was their mission?

        I don’t think anyone is accusing them of actually placing the bomb, I certainly am not. However, i think that under the circumstances, it is a fair and intelligent question to ask what they are doing there, who were they working for and what exactly was their mission.

        • Agent Mulder

          Once the bombs went off the local LEOs devoted their attentions to the scene, the injured, etc. The job of these men is to maintain surveillance of the area in preparation to defend against possible follow-up aggression. Can’t do that if you’re playing rescue.

    • Warren

      If the guy was wearing a Boston Red Sox cap instead, one wouldn’t presume he’s a member of the Red Sox team.

    • Anonymous

      Well. More than likely they will be terminated with prejudice in a ” training accident”
      Stupid morons! Don’t they know, that they are expendable dumb animals! :twisted:

    • Republic of Texas

      That is the Punisher logo. It is not exclusive to the Navy Seals or the military in general. In fact, the GM factory C6R Corvette race team and Harley Davidson both use variations of this logo.

    • jimbobway

      The Punisher logo on the hat is used by sniper Chris Kyle’s training company, Craft International, that provides tactical training for LE, Military, and civilians alike. The hat shown being worn by the man in boston is this hat here —-> which can be bought by ANYONE on the Craft International website. The logo is NOT used exclusively by Navy SEALs, Blackwater, or…well….anyone except for the Punisher superhero. Perhaps he’s to blame?

    • Hawbs

      these aren’t navy seals. this is a security company for hire called craft. nice name, right? there was a bunch of them same hats, black backpacks, tan boot and pants, black coats or tops, radios in hand or ear, all had the same logo. this logo is the same as crappy blackwater. they are security for hire in many countries. undercover. well trained goons for hire. did these bombs come in black backpacks? i think that was reported. were these guys photographed across the street when the bombs went off? i have to relook at the videos, but i think they were. they could have been legally hired to watch things, but they are not a company with a good reputation. they had enough cops and bomb-sniffing dogs there and what happened???

    • Anonymous

      Amazing. First the Tea Party gets accused of everything, now false rumors and insinuations against Seals? Why would anyone want to set up the Seals to try to turn the public against them? They love our country.
      So many have died tragic deaths since the “death” of Bin Laden.
      No, the Seals wouldn’t attack their fellow Americans. But perhaps people in high places want us to think otherwise. But why? Perhaps they already know who the real culprits are.

    • CuriousMind

      Good spot. No matter what anyone thinks on this site, these photos demand an explanation: Who? What? Where? When? Why? How?

    • Fianna

      For all those asking why would “ANYONE” think Navy Seals would be involved in this or any other major public event, least you all forget………
      You can find all sorts of proof that in 1999 Delta Force was used in Seattle to quell protesters, interrogation, and just all around FEMA processing training.
      Also if that’s not enough, there’s plenty of info about them working Katrina as well as doing OPs in Atlanta.
      And if you still question why someone of a Seal,Delta, SF, FRcon etc…. status would do such a thing to the American public, just ask Timothy…………oohhh never mind, you missed that window.
      I doubt these two posers in the picture have anything to do with the issues in Boston, and highly doubt they are Seals, most anybody with a DD214 & can qualify on a target range can get a gig with companies like Craft, XE , etc…..
      The clothing they are wearing doesnt make them suspects to me, if anything, it shows they enjoy comfortable clothing that “ANYONE” can buy at any local Army Surplus or online stores.

    • Disobedient1

      1. If the Government claimed they knew nothing beforehand. Why all the Canine presence?
      2. Are these people real Navy seals? Or Posers?
      3. If they are Navy seals, what are they doing there? Why the earpiece tech stuff and radios? This would mean they are on a live operation.
      4. Why are they wearing Identical Backpacks to the actual backpack bomb?
      5. Why were people told “this is just a drill and not to worry” moments before the Bombs went off? In addition, the question was there a drill. Is never acknowledged by officials when asked the simple question? They ignore the question altogether.
      6. And Why Aren’t The American People Raising absolute hell and Allowing Government Officials to blatantly avoid answering any questions, Deny the obvious facts ,Stage fake investigations and boards with the very people that are behind these False flag Operations who publish Bogus findings (911 report fraud) as an example. In addition, they actually attempted to have Henry Kissinger to head that investigation before Victims family members angrily objected due to his obvious tyrannical reputation.
      Our Entire Congress and Senate needs to be replaced. It is Obvious the present Regime is in No Way Competent or Loyal to the American people!

    • Anonymous Excellent write up that mentions this very photo & theory. Wish I could comment on the Examiner article but I am not a facebooker & it’s the only way to log in (WHY do they DO this??)

      Have you all noticed how the media story keeps changing? “WE HAVE A SUSPECT” 2nd day “WE DO NOT HAVE A SUSPECT” I believe the 4chan/reddit “investigations” are changing the Official Story’s plans! I really do. I bet, every time the Official Story cooks up their “suspect” they need to switch to another angle when 4chan fingers their REAL guy. THIS is why the media keeps stalling on “suspects”. We are a bit harder to fool these days. And they don’t LIKE it.

    • mpow66m

      If you think the SEALS or any member of Military did this you are a complete moron!
      They are more than likely Craft Security.
      AJ is a idiot for even suggesting this,what a complete failure.

    • Love Ya

      i went back and looked at the original infowars story. there is a pic left off this article. it shows the craft logo and even says craft on the logo. the odd thing about this missing pic is that it gives the craft motto. get this: “despite what your momma told you, violence does solve problems.” so folks, is this someone our government should hire for security? geez. alex jones hasn’t blamed anyone. he put this craft business up for us to see and he asks what these guys are doing there. alex puts tons of interesting news out free of charge. take a look on youtube or all free. if you don’t like him, you don’t have to listen. i see no reason to bad-mouth him.

      These guys are looking for something, not participating in a threat. They are not covered to blend in and they scream security. Truth be known they were likely contracted privately to act as extra security outside of official Government. Had a threat been confirmed blues would flood the area and be very visible. Local authorities knew who these guys were. They stand out like a sore thumb and otherwise would have been shadowed. In one photo they are standing by an EMT. Those backpacks do not carry bombs they are designed to carry short barreled M-4′s. The guy on the left with no hat has his left hand cuffed under the sidearm he has in his jacket. The operative on his right carries the backpack off his shoulder in his left hand so that he can reach for his rifle with his free right hand. These men are highly trained former military. You see a threat I see an American doing a dangerous job trying to protect you whiners who do nothing substantial.
