Right. The news (CNN radio, I think) was reporting that the cell phone network was shut down *right* after talking to someone on the cell phone, who was at the site.

Because they're libs.

For what it's worth, security at Canadian/US border crossings has been sharply increased since the Boston bombings.
It's not that anyone thinks the bomber was Canadian, it's just that the FBI supposes the bomber may be trying to get out of the US. If it was a muslim terrorist, they don't want him/her to get back to Iran (or wherever) before they find out who did it.
So, racial profiling or no racial profiling, getting across the US/Canada border if you have black hair, brown eyes and a name like Yousif, Farak or Mohammad ain't easy as of late.

Chris Young used improper usenet message composition style by top-posting and full quoting:

He didn't say which side of the boarder is being more vigilent.
I would hate to think that we're spending more tax dollars here in Canada to pay for overtime for customs agents to waste more of our time coming back into Canada in a futile attempt to catch your bomber.

No, the way it's set up is that Canadian border guards check everyone wanting to come to Canada, and US border guards check everyone wanting to come to the USA. So, yes, it's Canadian border guards that are looking for the Boston bomber should he be wanting to come to Canada.
Just clench your teeth really hard and put up with it Home Guy; this is the kinda stuff a country has to do to be a good neighbor. You can write a strongly worded letter to your member of parliament if you want.
But, I fully expect that the US has unmanned drones patrolling the US/Canada border should the guy decide it's safer to cross the border on foot. I know they use those drones to monitor the BC/Washington State border for drug smuggers who typically do their business at night.

===================================== Authorities ID suspect as Saudi national in marathon bombings, under guard at Boston hospital
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/national/authorities_under_suspect_guard_y2m8cJO29uC2PDGIjYBalO
Investigators have a suspect — a Saudi Arabian national — in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.
Law enforcement sources said the 20-year-old suspect was under guard at an undisclosed Boston hospital.
It was not immediately clear why the man was hospitalized and whether he was injured in the attack or in his apprehension.
The man was caught less than two hours after the 2:50 p.m. bombing on the finish line of the race, in the heart of Boston.
In addition, Boston police have has surveillance video of someone bringing multiple backpacks to blast site, according to CBS News.
Police also confirmed that there was a third explosion, at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum. It was not immediately clear how much damage was done or whether it was related to the bombings at the marathon finish line.
The library bombing occurred about 4:30 p.m. and more than a mile from the marathon.
A law enforcement source confirmed to The Post that 12 people were killed and nearly 50 were injured in today's blast.

The Saudi angle is that they have a Saudi who was living in an apt in a Boston suburb in the hospital and he's under guard as a person of interest. They searched his apt and took away bags of stuff. He allegedly was acting suspicously at the scene and was tackled by bystanders. It could be something or it could be nothing.
First thing that comes to mind is the bombs went off within seconds of each other, so apparently they didn't go off accidently. And if that's the case, why would anyone involved be so close that they themselves were injured? If the guy is involved, then it will be a gold mine for the investigation.

No, three confirmed deaths.
The Saudi guy is a "person of interest' not yet an official suspect.
Where are you reading your news? That "journalism" is completely inaccurate.
