    The Boston Marathon bombing is clearly FAKE! Any trained medical professional knows that if a person has his legs blown off and is in a wheel chair, there will be a massive amount of blood loss. There is no evidence of massive blood loss on the pictures and video of the incident. The amounts of blood that are shown are miniscule compared to amounts found at actual bombings and auto accidents. The victim would not be awake and fully alert while being wheeled away! This is clearly fake. Good try U.S. government and liberal media, we are not IDIOTS.
