Keep people away from the criminal site. Only the Feds could take photo information.
They control the security, drove people – potential witnesses away. So their actors could perform without being watched.
go that way.

If you think Jeff Bauman and others were performing a stage show at finish line, then it was an organized crime done by the Feds. No others has such an ability to do that. A well organized operation would also set up a field office at finish line to monitor and command the bombing show. That field office likely was in the building to the bombing site where a distract sound was produced to turn away people's attention.
The following pictures also indicate that office had issued instruction to particular force at particular time.

When the bomb exploded, there was a sound so loud that a lot of people covered up their ears with hands. The sound source was from mid-way of the building. you can see from some people's sight. But was it possible the bomber throwing a backpack(with pressure pot inside) into the air? Or from the midway of the building? I don't agree with this explanation. I think it was a sound produced by another party to distract public's attention so actor teams could do their job without being watched.
Quote:, “Smith then offers up the theory that the explosion was in what he assumes to be a hotel, and that it could possibly have been the result of a gas leak in the kitchen. His confusion is entirely understandable given that there was a noticeable lack of any indication that there had been an explosion out on the pavement, including a serious shortage of visible victims. Smith then listens in as local Fox reporter Maria Stephanos talks with the anchor for the local Fox affiliate, who is identified only as Mike. Stephanos quickly dismisses the second blast as insignificant. She then goes on to say that the first blast did not occur at ground level, but rather midway up the building. Mike interjects, “So, Maria, again just to make this point, since you were right there, you’re saying from what you could see, it didn’t seem like the explosion happened on the ground but actually happened in the building?” To which Maria quickly responds, “Exactly, Mike, in the middle of a building. I was right there. I turned around and you saw the plume of smoke in the middle of the building.”
Did you notice that pretty much all the people along the fence line who aren’t running away, beginning with the bald guy with sunglasses and continuing down to the guy in the red jacket and blue cap, are all looking in the same direction? And it’s not at the ground, where the bomb supposedly detonated and where all the alleged victims are laid out. No, they are all looking at a spot about midway up the building, above where all the fake victims are sprawled out. That’s a pretty strange coincidence, isn’t it?
So the bomb went off midway up the building, but it blew off everyone’s legs?! That doesn’t sound quite right. What does sound entirely plausible though is that a smoke bomb was detonated over the heads of the crowd, providing cover for the actors, in full wardrobe and make-up, to swiftly emerge from Lenscrafters to take up their positions on the pavement. And if that sounds crazy to you, blame Fox News. They’re the ones who reported it.
I don't recall hearing those guys were on a terrorist watch list or got into a shoot out with police or killed a security guard before being caught, bloody, hiding in a boat. But then, maybe I missed the MSNBC coverage.
