Did Authorities Have Prior Knowledge of Potential Boston Terror Attack?

At this point, local authorities in the Boston Marathon terror attack are denying any knowledge that trouble was brewing in the hours leading up to the race. However, as you can imagine, there are many people who do not believe this. Instead, they are under the impression that police had to know that something bad could happen. has a great piece discussing this topic, complete with information from eyewitness Ali Stevenson.

While there is no way of knowing the truth, Stevenson says authorizes “must have known” about a threat because they discussed a drill before the start of the race while also planting spotters on local rooftops.

Stevenson acknowledged the fact that authorities announced a bomb drill over the loudspeakers before the race. At the time, it is safe to say that people were more focused on the race and less concerned with a potential attack. But when looking back at what happened, it makes people wonder if authorities had knowledge of a potential attack or were simply taking the proper precautions.

In an interview with, here is what Stevenson had to say:
