Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

New Hampshire Republican claims U.S. government planned Boston Bombing

Washington - A Republican state legislator in New Hampshire has claimed that the U.S. Government is responsible for the Boston Marathon bombing.

State Republican Stella Tremblay posted on the Facebook page of conservative talk show host Glenn Beck that the attack and the subsequent search for suspects was playing out how Beck had suggested.

According to the Huffington Post, she said the bombings were a plot by the federal government, and included a link to a video from another conservative talk show host Alex Jones, in which Jones also claims the federal government planned the bombing.

In the video, Jones spent eight minutes discussing his theory, which includes what he said are photos of off-duty Navy SEALS near the marathon finish line and backpacks he claimed contained bombs.

Jones has a history of such claims, including saying that the federal government was responsible for the September 11 terrorist attacks and the Oklahoma City bombing in 1995.

He also claimed that former Attorney General Janet Reno killed the Branch Davidian compound members in Waco, Texas, in 1993.

The New Hampshire Democratic Party is calling on state Republicans to condemn Tremblay.

Tremblay also told news website Foster's Daily Democrat on Tuesday that she believes there is evidence that shows that the U.S. government is behind the Boston bombings.

According to the site, she said that a constituent told her to watch a video which then led her to Jones' video.

She also questioned why the FBI searched the home of a Saudi Arabian student after the bombing and then dropped the investigation after she says Secretary of State John Kerry met with the Saudi ambassador.

Tremblay also said that it should not be her role to investigate terrorism but rather suggested that the media needs to do more, the report added.
