FBI Boston Bombing Video Altered To Hide Fact Bomber Was Black Ops Mercenary?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

As reported exclusively on Before It’s News, the FBI surveillance video is in fact a digitally manipulated slideshow of still photos and not an actual video.

This is evidenced by the existence of ghost images appearing in between still photos in the so-called video as a transition effect is applied during the fade between frames.

As many in the alternative media have already pointed out special-ops were photographed all over the site of the Boston Marathon bombing before, during and after the attacks.

While there is speculation those photographed could be Navy Seals the overwhelming majority of the evidence points to those in the photograph being part of a for hire black-ops mercenary squad known as Tradecraft.

Shortly after Before It’s News reporter Alexander Higgins reported on the digitally manipulated slideshow the FBI and the media are fraudulently passing as actual surveillance video it was suggested the alteration may have been done to hide mercenary’s signature skull logo.

Upon asking why this may have been done it was suggested the video may very well have been altered to hide the tell-tale skull that is part of the Trade Craft insignia the alternative media is buzzing about..

After further investigating the so-called FBI surveillance “video” for signs of alteration it was immediately obvious that the images of the alleged suspects had possibly been altered to hide the fact they where in fact part of the black-ops team on site.

This image comparing the alleged suspect, which police say is still at large and is the man that physically planted both of the bombs, to the black-ops personnel photographed at the bombing.

To be clear here is an actual picture of the alleged suspected.

Enlarging the image reveals a clear area that may have been digitally manipulated to hide the skull logo.

As previously noted:

For an explanation of why the video is clearly a slide show that is being faked into appearing to a video see this.

With mercenary firms around the globe now owned by Wall Street banks and acting as private armies for global elitists who are funded in most cases exclusively with US taxpayer money such ruthless thugs not loyal to our Constitution have no business conducting operations inside the United States.

It raises all kinds of questions about their presence which become even more intriguing when considering the main stream corporate media and law enforcement officials refuse to even acknowledge their presence at the bomb site nonetheless date attempt to explain why they were there and what they were doing.

Mike Adams from Natural News gives a good explanation of why the operatives are believed to be from the private mercenary firm Tradecraft.

Natural News has now confirmed that at least five private military contractors were operating on scene at the Boston marathon, and that they all carried black backpacks which look very similar to the backpack carrying the pressure cooker bomb (see pictures below).

The mainstream media is completely censoring any mention of these “Craft” operatives, pretending they don’t even exist. Only the alternative media is conducting real investigative journalism on these bombings. The mainstream media isn’t interested in the truth; they only want to spin the attack into a new way to somehow blame conservative Americans for something they had no part in.

Thanks to the help of researchers posting on 4Chan, plus a bit of our own analysis, we’ve been able to bring new research to light as you’ll see in the photos below.

Who is this guy and what is he holding in his hand?

The following photo was snapped mere moments after the first bomb detonation. Many people are asking, “Who is this guy?” and why is he dressed in combat boots and military BDUs (pants)? More importantly, what is he carrying in his hand?

We were able to get a close-up of the object in his hand:

With a bit of research, we were able to confirm this object is an “Inspector Radiation Alert” device that detects the kind of radiation which would be produced in a dirty bomb attack or a nuclear attack:

This immediately brings up all sorts of questions, such as: Who hired this guy? Whose side is he on? Why would he anticipate the need for a nuclear radiation detector? What kind of private military operative routinely carries such expensive gadgets?

Four more operatives with the exact same uniforms

As we browsed through the photos, we located four more private military operatives with the exact same dress: Tan combat boots, tan BDUs, black jackets, black backpacks and tactical communications gear.

Here’s a picture of three of these men reacting to the explosion. The one in the middle is the same guy in the radiation detector photo, above:

There are several things worth noting in this image:

1) All three of the men look surprised, even shocked by the events. This might argue against their prior knowledge of the bombings.

2) The object in the right hand of the man in the middle may resemble a small handgun, but I’m sure it isn’t. Why? Because no highly trained private military operative would carry a handgun with a “pincer” grip as appears in the photo. A proper grip on a handgun is far deeper into the palm. This object is most likely the same radiation detector shown above, just captured from a weird angle with a flapping leather case of some sort.

3) The man on the left, an older gentleman, appears to be holding an object in his right hand which seems capable of being actuated with his thumb.

4) The man on the right reveal “The Craft” skull logo on his shirt because his jacket just happened to open up for this photo (see below).

Here’s a photo comparison of “The Craft” logo on his shirt:

Here are two more operatives on the scene, wearing the exact same uniform:

If you look at the hat for one of these men, you can clearly see “the Craft” skull logo on his hat:

Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle was also a member of The Craft. He was murdered by one of his close friends a few months ago. The appearance of The Craft operatives at the Boston marathon bombing raises new questions about Chris Kyle’s death:

Here’s Chris Kyle on national TV wearing the “Craft” hat:

Here’s the Craft motto, which says “Violence does solve problems.”

If you still doubt these are “Craft” operatives, check out The Craft website where all these images, logos and uniforms are instantly confirmed.

Bomb bag resembles the black backpacks worn by The Craft operatives

Here’s where all this gets incredibly spooky: The backpack that carried the pressure cooker bomb looks very similar to the black backpacks worn by The Craft operatives:

      From Australia: I am disgusted in what I see – but its now news really – the US is sitting with a president that DOES NOT care about the country or the people!
      Can the Americans NOT see what Obama is doing? Hopefully Glen Beck will expose it all on Monday – that’s if he is still alive by that time!

      • liberal army veteran

        Worry about Austrailia dude because you don’t have a clue about the U.S.

          Why would you attack a potential ally like that. We’re ALL being screwed by the multinational central banks and corporations. We have more in common with this guy then not. Smarten up.

          wow, there’s 2 of us on the planet that understand that Beck is a shill

      • ThenAgain

        Beck is a zionist shill as are all the media. Where is his show on Chemtrails poisoning all of us and killing the food supply. His zionist buddies own the federal reserve, all the media, did 911, run the porn industry, destroyed our culture and families. Even with his own studio all he does is bs that doesn’t matter, so he can protect his zionist buddies behind all the murder and fake war the last century, now killing the US -

          You idiots Chemtrails poisoning us? Are you retarded……….LOL What a nut job and don’t breath the air due to the Chemtrails, oh sorry to late……..LOL

      • B4timewasters

        Whenever you hear Glenn Beck speak, just remember he is the mouth piece of the ultra austerity and oligarchical wing of the Republican party / Mormon faction.

        Let’s hear Glenn Beck call for a 1% Wall St Sales Tax.

    • Jacksdad

      The FBI is scrambling to cover their butts because they brought the older brother in for questioning 2 years ago after being warned by the Russians that he was a radicalized Chechen jihadist. Then they let the sob go. It has nothing to do with the obvious undercover cops in the pics.


      liberal army vet…you are joking, right?…the ozzie fellow said he used to live in the States…what is wrong with you?…don’t be such a hater…there is lots wrong with the U.S., starting from the top down; in fact, both Australia and America are in deep trouble.
      And, liberal, you are not; a dumbed-down, authoritarian is more like it. Sorry, Pal, your DEAR LEADER is no leader…he is a usurper and fraud, through & through, and most people know that now…

    • Proserpina

      Look at the “suspects” shadows…. none. Anyone?

      • nuthingBUTthaTRUTH

        WOW…I am sooooo glad that someone saw that other than me. I’m a videographer and photographer and that was what I was looking at. The “ghosting” transition was definitely in full effect as well.

        This is sad, and I already knew that this was YET ANOTHER ploy by the PTB and the US government leading up to a MARTIAL LAW DRY RUN!

        It only goes downhill from here. I mean come on, they permitted residents from using CELL PHONES…staying indoors…while the authorities were doing GOD KNOWS WHAT.

        That is the real cover-up and was a diversionary tactic to implement their next move.

    • leeteam

      It was reported on every news channel the bombs were in BLACK backpacks. The news showed pictures of a destroyed BLACK backpack. Not once, did I hear or see a description of the backpacks as not being BLACK.
      This contradicts the FBI video and pictures, showing the 2nd suspect, carrying a white or lighter color backpack.

      A pressure cooker is cylindrical and Are these backpacks large enough to carry a pressure cooker? The smallest pressure cooker I found was the Prestige aluminum 2 liter, dimensions 12x9x5 with the handle removed. Guessing they used a larger one, wouldn’t there be a bulge in the backpack to show a shape of something inside?

      What am I missing? Can anyone explain this?

    • ElOregonian

      Nice job Mr. Higgins, your breaking down of the FBI’s fake ghost video was definitely spot-on.

      Now, what I mostly fear is a massive “False Flag” i.e. New Madrid earthquake disaster, Bayou Corne explosion in Louisiana, War with North Korea, Yellowstone Mega-quake, West Coast earthquake disaster.

      Whatever it is I’m sure it will be large enough to wipe all the current ‘False Flags’ off he front pages. Because their asses are hanging out there in the wind and people are really starting to notice it.

      Unfortunately for them (TPTB) they’ve killed, murdered, and maimed too many people in trying to either cover their tracks or set an agenda that we’re onto their M.O. and whenever and however they attempt to inject or detract from their agenda does not work anymore. The evidence is being uncovered faster and faster because more and more people know where to look in order to start their investigations.

      So the big concern is these evil bastards continue to up the mayhem in order to shock and awe the public which leads to events like the World Trade Center disasters, WWI, WWII, North Korea, Vietnam, etc.

      Hopefully, real patriots such as us, retake our government and restore our country from these freaks. It starts with awareness that we have a problem, then moves to establishing proper and real solutions.

    • FightforFreedom

      Excellent Story,Though I Wish It Was More Mainstream,So More People Would Get Wind Of This Info.

    • xdrfox

      Why they were asking the public for all film and videos they had ! Someone may have something that has not been altered !

      • mehitable

        My guess would be so they could destroy, suppress, or alter any audio/video/pics that citizens might have independently. The govt just wants us to view THEIR info stream to support their narrative – that’s explicitly what the FBI told us on Thursday….don’t look at any of those OTHER (bad) pics!

        • mehitable

          Another thought is that they might have wanted to see what the civilians actually had evidence of so they could consider it or possibly use it in altering their false flag narrative – maybe it helped them decide who to frame and how.

    • Love Ya

      despite what your momma told you, violence does solve problems. our government had to have hired these people. waco and oaklahoma city april 19, same day as the hunt went on. i couldn’t even watch the tv with all those lights from the government cars. i did see so many police and military standing around and parading around doing nothing. tanks with machine guns. people standing outside their houses. a really big shoe as ed would say. so much money spent. finally let people out of their homes with no one found, and this poor guy looks in his boat and low and behold. good job mr. policeman. who found the suspect? where are the friends and neighbors of these russians?

    • kingaqua

      So let me understand this.
      1.) a world superpower government sends in an exclusive team of soldiers on a secret mission to bomb the superpower’s own people.
      2.) this specialy trained strike team then performs this most secret mission, wearing:
      A.) the same sets of clothes by each member
      B.) displays their unique strike force emblem on their clothes, while performing the mission
      C.) openly walk in groups of three while performing this mission
      3.) then the superpower with unlimited tax payer funds uses the cheapest video editing tool and editor they could find to hide the emblem and other evidence in the worst way possible?

      Ehm, really?

      Mirrors and smoke hide mirrors and smoke which in turn hides the truth.

      I’m not saying the superpower did not perform the bombings but, really…..

    • truthzilla

      All of the recent events are Beta testing for the Big Event… What that will be is only known by those who will perpetrate it. But, rest assured, it will be beyond anything we have seen before. Let us hope men of better integrity and honor thwart the planning and those responsible suffer for the their deeds. The more you study it and see the overarching, enmeshed and interwoven attributes of the world wide criminal organization ( read major governments) you start to see that those involved may not even be aware of the game they’re involved…Oh well…

    • B4timewasters

      One of the main things about the article, is Tamerlan’s hat. It is not a hat from The Craft. I have numerous photos from all different ppl and their mobile devices and cameras, showing that it is a golf hat. This article is a big time waster… Here is clearer image of Tamerlan’s hat proving it is not from The Craft…

      Hey, Massachusetts – you are a DISGRACE to America. Hey, Connecticut – you are a DISGRACE to America. Hey, Colorado – you are a DISGRACE to America. Hey, AMERICA – you are a DISGRACE to AMERICA. It is time to SECEDE, to COME OUT of Babylon, to REFUSE.

      With so many things being put up in the air…. for all we know the bombers are actually the ones who did it, but were contacted by these people being shown, in the setup that it would be a sting op.

      However, instead of stopping it and looking great and what not…. with all the dogs and devices.

      They let it happen and now everyones left pointing fingers, somewhere some woman is screaming protect the children, and people are signing petitions to not allow muslims to buy pressure cookers.
