Really? You've never heard the phrase "A source close to the president said...." on the news or printed in a news paper?

But almost every story has a super secret source. "A Pentagon official...." or "Persons with knowledge of the case...." etc, etc.

What make Brian Williams "legitimate" and Glen Beck not?

I'm no fan of Beck and routinely dismiss him out of hand but that's personal on my part. :)

There's no REAL reason why he would automatically be wrong or some other news presenter "right".

Im just waiting for someone to tell me what Mr. Beck claims to be so egregious. Too, is he making some suggestion as to what should have been done? It seems to me like he is making something out of nothing whether or not it happened.Was a law allegedly broken or what? :? I dont get it...

I believe one of the stories said he was the son of a diplomat or some other bigshot, so even if this is true, what is the point? Why are people obsessing about this person? He was investigated and cleared. If nobody has any new, real information this seems like a massive waste of time.

I saw on TV last night some guy had taken pictures of the shootout with the cops in Watertown. They even had a bullet hole in their apartment. While watching I thought why not just get the rifle and end it right there. Fifty feet out the window and down a couple of floors; .22 long rifle, hold a little low just to be sure, let’s say aim for the gut and with all the gunshots going off nobody would ever hear those .22 rounds go off and next thing you know you have two dead or incapacitated terrorists. But this is the world we live in and God forbid anyone in Boston owns a gun.

I don’t know the law in Boston but some places have responded to all the videos showing police brutality by making it illegal to video the police. If Boston or Massachusetts has such a law I want charges filed against all those people who have videos of the police chase and/or shootout, not that I have a problem with it per se but it would serve to educate the public.

New reports claim guy in boat had no guns. But the cops shot up the boat anyway. I wonder what the thinking is? Obviously want him alive for interrogation but than shoot multiple rounds at the boat? Maybe just to scare him into surrender? Just saying.

I heard the same thing. No gun in his posession while in the boat. The latest images show the boat looking like swiss cheese. No way they were only trying to wound him when they riddled it with bullet holes. Seems more likely that they were trying to waste him.

How come the police reports indicate that they were trading shots with the terrorist, who was shooting back at them from within the boat, if he had no weapon? Do we perhaps have rogue cops acting like vigilanties of justice here?

Because maybe they DIDN'T want him alive? Dead men tell no tales after all.

Or it could be just another example of the police acting as judge, jury and executioner.

It's so big and obvious, most people will never see it.

Can you imagine the infra-red signature that a blazing hot gun (or guns) would have made when the helecopter took those IR movies of him lying in the boat. The glow from the gun(s) would have been so intense that it would be hard to see him because the gun(s) would be blinding the image.

Well tough guys, who among you would walk up & climb into a boat to arrest a man known to have both weapons & explosives? Maybe he did or maybe he didn't have a gun but how do you know unless you get up close & personal, everything is always easy after the fact.
