False flag consciousness, fire drills and missing backpacks
The news of the sad and sickly Boston marathon bombings started me on my usual trawl around the web to see what the alternative community were saying. Pretty soon I fell head first into the Alex Jones infowars broadcasts where he was already calling the events a false flag attack, almost immediatly after they happened, partly based upon reports of a ‘fire drill’ or ‘bomb drill’ taking place at that exact location and time of the 'real' explosions.

Rather than speak of conspiracy theory we might instead try to construct a poetics of conspiracy. A conspiracy would be treated like an aesthetic construct, or a language-construct, and could be analyzed like a text. Robert Anton Wilson has done this with his vast and playful "Illuminati" fantasy. --http://hermetic.com/bey/conspire.html
