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.
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.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise,” Stevenson said. “I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.”
Stevenson had just finished the marathon before the explosions. Stevenson said his wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him. “We are just so thankful right now,” Stevenson said.

UK Court Ruling finds BBC Reported False Information on the Collapse of WTC-7 on 9/11/2001
It is widely known that the BBC reported the collapse of World Trade Center Building 7 over 20 minutes before it occurred.
WTC 7 was a 47- story skyscraper owned by developer Larry Silverstein. The building was not hit by a plane on 9/11 but collapsed at free-fall acceleration later that day. Rooke asserted that the BBC had to have prior knowledge of the collapse making them (BBC) complicit the terror attack on WTC-7. He presented the BBC video segments to the judge along with more evidence to convince the judge that Rooke had a reasonable case to protest. Rooke was found not guilty and he was not fined for failure to pay the licensing fee.
