According to websites like Infowars, BlogDogCicle, Before It's News, Dexus Nexus, and dozens of YouTube accounts, internet "sleuthing" has discovered that there were "individuals spotted wearing backpacks, a similar cap, and similar pants (and boots) at the Boston Marathon." The sites speculate that these men were part of a group called "Craft International," a private defense company founded by deceased former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.
