Is the Boston pressure-cooker bomb a lie and a hoax?

When the Trade Center was destroyed on September 11, 2001, I urged readers and researchers to focus on the explosions as the first order of business.
That was because I had researched and written about the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. I and others discovered that the official scenario about the bomb in the Ryder truck, parked at the curb outside the Murrah Federal Building, was grossly incomplete.
Such a device could not have produced the profile of damage sustained by the building. General Ben Partin and other bomb experts had seen that fact. They’d diagrammed it and explained it.
The obvious conclusion was: bombs wired into columns of the Murrah Building had done the significant damage.
So again, in the case of the Boston Marathon bombing, I urge people to examine the explosions closely.
I have questions. For example, as described in the YouTube video. “Boston Massacre False Flag Terrorism—Pressure Cooker,” Daniel Vincent Kelley points to a few simple facts.
A photo of a mangled pressure cooker, posted by press outlets all over the world, shows the pressure-cooker plug and, near it, one small round hole, machined apparently by the manufacturer. But…no other small holes. I see discolorations but not dozens or hundreds of holes.
Yet we are told that the Marathon bombs were placed inside pressure cookers and packed with nails and ball bearings. If that were true, the explosions would have created many, many small holes as the inserted shrapnel flew through the cooker and out in every direction.
In the official press photo, there are no such holes.
How is that possible?
In fact, since a large piece of the pressure cooker is missing, it appears that the explosive was a shaped charge of some kind. Part of the cooker is mangled but intact; another part is missing, presumably revealing in which direction the shock wave traveled.
Charges are shaped when they are put in place, because the maker wants the explosion to be vectored; otherwise, the explosion will exit its confined space spherically, equally, in all directions.
A shaped charge would strongly suggest a pro at work, not an amateur who built the device in his kitchen. In which case, we would be looking at a whole different scenario.
This is significant because, for example, media outlets are busy trying to make connections between home-made pressure-cooker bombs and “right-wing extremists.”
People might reply, “Well, if the pressure cookers show such gaping flaws in the official story, why would the real killers have done such a bad job of covering their tracks? They would be smarter than that.”
They weren’t smarter in 1995 in Oklahoma City, and they weren’t smarter in New York, in 2001, where it was claimed that both Towers fell because of plane collisions.
They weren’t smarter in Aurora, either, where two witnesses claimed there were at least two killers inside the theater. Nor were they smarter in Newtown, where so many questions and contradictions remained unanswered.
If we infer that the Boston pressure-cooker scenario is wrong, it is a very short step to conclude the scenario is a cover story, designed to obscure the truth. In that case, what is the truth? Who was really responsible for the death and destruction on April 15?
Pros pretending to be amateurs? Pros whose death-dealing work is being concealed by law-enforcement officials, with a concocted version of what happened?
At this stage of the investigation, and from now on, these questions must be asked seriously and probed seriously, regardless of the official line.
That’s what I’m doing here. Asking questions. If there is a reasonable explanation for the pressure-cooker contradictions, I want to hear them.
I’m going to try to get even more specific, to stimulate research. Examine the press photo of the pressure cooker yourself. Does it show a whole cooker, with all parts intact, but bent and distorted, or does it show only part of a cooker, with a major section missing?
And second, if the bomber packed only one side of the bomb with nails and ball bearings and BBs, could the piece that is missing in the photo have contained all the holes caused by the shrapnel exiting the pressure cooker?
If we are really looking at the whole cooker, then we should we also see many holes. We don’t.
If we are looking at only part of the cooker, then regardless of whether the bomber packed all the shrapnel to exit through the missing piece, the fact that it’s missing suggests a shaped charge, the work of a pro.
Either way, somebody is deceiving us.
