The tinfoil hat brigades are already forming to denounce the Boston bombing as a "false flag" operation. One kooky website claims that all the wounded were "actors," that no pressure cooker bombs were set off, it was only "flash powder." The blood on the ground wasn't the right color red, or there wasn't enough of it. The man with a bloody stump with a bone sticking out of the end was merely wearing a prosthetic device. And why did they escort him away from the scene in a wheelchair instead of using a stretcher? Hey kooks, why don't you ask him? His name is Jeffrey Bauman and he is 27 years old. He lost both legs in the blast. The Concord Monitor reports on WHY Bauman didn't bleed to death:
Bauman, 27, was waiting at the finish line for his girlfriend to cross when the bombs exploded. [Carlos] Arredondo was watching from nearby bleachers, handing out American flags while he cheered on members of the National Guard and a suicide prevention group that were running in honor of his two deceased sons. When the bombing hit, adrenaline and instinct kicked in, and he immediately hopped the fence and ran toward the people on the ground.
“There were so many people on the floor, so many serious injuries in the legs. It was unbelievable, people were everywhere,” Arredondo said.
When he saw the extent of Bauman’s injuries and the rapid loss of blood, he knew Bauman needed his help the most. He ripped up a sweater and used it to try to stop the bleeding from Bauman’s legs and immediately got the attention of a woman with a wheelchair. He placed Bauman in the chair and began pushing, but the fabric he used as bandages kept getting caught in the wheels. Arredondo took matters into his own hands, literally, throwing off the fabric and pinching closed an artery on Bauman’s right leg – the image of humanitarianism seen around the world.
“The picture that you see, that’s what it is and that how it happened, you know,” he said. “I was just trying to help him in every way I could, and thank God he gave me the opportunity to help this beautiful young man.”
When they finally reached an ambulance, Arredondo asked for Bauman’s name. “Jeff,” he managed to say, then spelled out his last name for Arredondo.

The people who believe this atrocity was somehow faked, are nuts. They deserve our contempt.
See some of these kook sites here and here.
Meanwhile, check out a list of some of the bombing victims who lost limbs or their lives, here. Yeah, these folks were all actors in the massive conspiracy, don'tcha know. Flash powder my ass.
P.S. Carlos Arredondo is a hero. God bless him.
