Boston Police Chief: "There Was No Specific Threat"

From Wednesday's press conference.

Why qualify your response.  Tell us the truth.  Was there a bomb threat before Monday's race?

Boston Police Chief admits police were conducting drills, and we already know there was a huge paramilitary anti-terrorism presence on scene, bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines, spotters on nearby roofs, repeated announcements over the loudspeaker that runners and spectators "shouldn't worry, because this is only a training exercise,"  and more.

In responding to a question about prior knowledge, the Boston police chief says they did not have "specific information that an attack would take place."  Why use the qualifier.  Why not just answer, "No, we didn't have any prior knowledge."  Just the language suggests that something was up.

In any case, if they didn't have any idea, and all the manpower on the scene was just routine, then it's been shown to be a complete waste of time and money.  They probably don't want that meme getting traction, either.

Coach Saw Bomb Sniffing Dogs, Roof Spotters, Police Drills Before Explosion

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

"They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it's just a training exercise," Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.  "I don't believe they were just having a training exercise.  I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in."

Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He's been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
