Professor's Wild Claim: Boston Bombing Resembles a 'Mass-Casualty Drill' Possibly Comprised of Actors

News

"...it has the semblance of being for all practical purposes 'real.'"

Professor James Tracy, an educator at Florida Atlantic University, landed himself in a heap of controversy when he suggested in the wake of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting that crisis actors may have been employed. And now, he's back with similar wild questions about the recent Boston Marathon terror attack.

Through text and images, Tracy alleges oddities and inconsistencies he believes unfolded during and in the wake of the horrific event. Here's a sample of his blog post, which outlines his belief that the first bomb didn't appear to discharge horizontally:

Available video of the first bomb detonating at the Marathon finish line suggests a direct upward discharge rather than the horizontal dispersion that would have wreaked the havoc to lower limbs so widely reported in physicians’ statements.

Moreover, the fact that whole pieces of the pressure cookers were produced by police further points to a more channeled dispersal of the bombs’ force–indeed, one that may not have involved a broad lateral distribution of shrapnel.

He also covered the gruesome scene, noting that he believes there is a dearth of people with severe injuries shown in pictures and video. In particular, the professor believes that the events on the ground seem reflective of a "mass casualty drill." He continues:

Along these lines, despite the seemingly formidable explosions very few bodies and no severed limbs are observable on the ground, even though there are indeed several people exhibiting bewilderment and apparent injuries.

In short, the event closely resembles a mass-casualty drill, which for training purposes are designed to be as lifelike as possible. Since it is mediated, however, and primarily experienced from afar through the careful assemblage of words, images, and the official pronouncements and commentary of celebrity journalists, it has the semblance of being for all practical purposes “real.”

"We have the official narrative that this was carried out by two individuals, two Chechen immigrants, but it could be more complex than that," Tracy told WPTV. "The government was carrying out drills on that day. We don't know exactly what was taking place, what the dynamics were."

WPTV has more:

TheBlaze's Jason Howerton covered Tracy's reaction to Sandy Hook earlier this year. Following the horrific murders, the professor seemingly alleged a large-scale conspiracy in which law enforcement, the federal government and the mass media collaborated.

"In fact, he isn’t entirely convinced that the massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults even occurred at all," Howerton wrote of Tracy's reaction to the Sandy Hook attack. "In radio interviews, Tracy mentions 'crisis actors' that may have been deployed by the Obama administration to stage the attack in order to further gun control measures."

Of the latest Boston bombing questions Tracy raises, Mediaite's AJ Delgado reports that the professor, who teaches communications and conspiracy theories at Florida Atlantic, claims that he has not been sharing these theories in the classroom.
