(April 19, 2013) FBI tells America: believe us and no one else
The implication is clear: there is official truth and then there is everything else. How many times has that assertion put America in the dumper?
As I write this, one suspect in the Marathon bombings is dead, and the other suspect is apparently surrounded in a house in Watertown, Massachsetts. (6:55AM, Pacific) The city of Boston is locked down.
Once events reach this point, an overwhelming number of people believe the authorities. They accept what is happening. The FBI must have it right. Reject all other possibilities.
That's always a dangerous assumption.
Yesterday, at a heralded press conference, seen by millions around the world, Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the FBI's Boston division, produced photos and video of two suspects in the Marathon bombing.
He stated: "...these images should be the only ones, I emphasize, the only ones that the public should view to assist us.
