While American authorities are questioning Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, accused of organizing the terrorist attacks in Boston, conspiracy theorists are putting forward alternative versions of the events. The Natural News and Info Wars sites have studied the photos, which show at least five people wearing pants that are part of the Battle Dress Uniform, and they were also wearing identical black jackets with a logo in the form of a skull, which very closely resembles the informal emblem of the SEAL units.
In addition to SEAL, this logo is used by private military firms consisting of veterans of special divisions of the Navy: this is the well-known "Blackwater" (now - Academi), which became famous for the murders of peaceful Iraqis. But, according to many bloggers, the photos represent the staff of a similar security company called The Craft International.
Users have found out that they were near the scene of the accident; they stood near a minibus with a folded special communication plate, and immediately after the terrorist attack the employees of this organization were seen with weapons and Geiger counters.
But what was more important, the users noticed that the backpack, containing the explosive device, was very similar to the one worn by the staff of The Craft.
While reporting about the possible involvement of The Craft, some TV channels added photos of two other persons, whom the bloggers and some media earlier named suspects in committing the explosions. Later it turned out that they were ordinary spectators, and they have no relation to the terrorist act.
The version about the involvement of The Craft in the organization of the terrorist act was picked up by TV presenter and journalist Alex Jones, known for thinking out conspiracy theories around all relevant political events and incidents. He had previously stated that the terrorist attack was planned and organized by the US authorities in order to accuse radicals and conservatives of the Republican Tea Party movement and to push through the expansion of the powers of the law enforcement bodies. A little later, he advanced another theory: in his opinion, the terrorist attack was intended to distract the public from the publication of the report on tortures of prisoners in the CIA secret prisons, which cast a shadow on the administrations of both George W. Bush and Barack Obama.
It is difficult to call the very presence of The Craft at the finish line of the Boston marathon suspicious: the organizers of the competition from the city administration could hire them in order to ensure safety. However, the bloggers have noticed another interesting detail. In February 2013, two and a half months before the terrorist attack, the most celebrated US sniper Chris Kyle was shot dead in the United States. Amazing coincidence: he was one of the founders of The Craft. According to the assumption of conspiracy theory adherents, Kyle was aware of the planned "special operation" during the Boston marathon, but wanted to prevent it; that was why he was liquidated in the course of a staged assassination attempt.
Neither the US government, nor the press-service of The Craft responded to this conspiracy theory version. Most likely, they will not react: the guilt and responsibility of Tsarnaev brothers for the act of terrorism is, apparently, proven, and no one will take seriously the version of Alex Jones and unknown conspiracy theory adherents from the Internet.
