FAU Professor: Boston Was Staged

People pay tuition to send their kids to Florida Atlantic University to “learn” from this guy?

Florida Atlantic University professor James Tracy is defending his controversial blog posts that question whether the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Newtown and Boston Marathon bombings were staged events.

Tracy, who teaches courses on communication and conspiracy theories at FAU, wrote on his blog “  Memory Hole ” that he questions many aspects of what happened the day of the bombings.

“We have the official narrative that this was carried out by two individuals, two Chechen immigrants, but it could be more complex than that,” Tracy told NewsChannel 5. “The government was carrying out drills on that day. We don’t know exactly what was taking place, what the dynamics were.”

In his blog, Tracy states he believes there is evidence that contradicts what is being reported about the bombings. He even dissects the force and direction of the explosions, questioning the amount of damage they could have caused.

“What exactly took place on April 15 at the Boston Marathon is unclear, yet what is now evident is a stark divergence between the narrative description of excessive carnage meted out as a result of the explosive devices and at least a portion of the video and photographic documentation of the bombing itself,” Tracy wrote.

Tracy said he is skeptic of the way the media has portrayed the suspects involved.

“Look at the way that it has overall been handled,” he told NewsChannel 5. “We have really a breakdown of due process. We’ve got a public lynching of these individuals. It’s very serious.”

No due process? The judge traveled to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s bedside for his first hearing, making his constituional rights crystal clear. What a joke.
