I think the most likely Boston Marathon bomber is a "lone-wolf “guy who is somehow related to an anti-government patriot group. In the mold of Timothy McVeigh in his bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building

Hmmm... Seems not only were you wrong, but 100% wrong. Along with the other "events" that you predicted would happen.
Intelligence Report, Winter 2013, Issue Number: 152
“As investigators continued to seek insight into the radicalization of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the apparent perpetrators of the April 15 Boston Marathon bombing, it emerged that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had consumed a smorgasbord of very American white supremacist and conspiracist publications popular on the domestic far right…
In recent months, however, it has come to light that despite his jihadist ideology, Tamerlan’s worldview was also, in a sense, highly Americanized. Notably, he was a fan of Alex Jones, a prominent Texas-based antigovernment conspiracy theorist best known for his obsessive claims that domestic terrorist events, including the Sept. 11 attacks, are “false flags” executed by the government as an excuse to implement martial law. (Ironically, Jones now says that the Boston Marathon attacks were themselves “false flag” events.)
In a remarkable Aug. 6 article, The Wall Street Journal showed just how far down the conspiracist rabbit hole Tamerlan Tsarnaev had gone. Apparently influenced by an elderly man he helped his mother care for, Tamerlan in the time leading up to the bombing was steeping himself in far-right and white supremacist propaganda.”Among the publications he reportedly read were The First Freedom, an Alabama-based tabloid that claims to promote “equal rights for Whites” and brags of having its own NAACP — a “Nation of Aryans Against Commie Putrefaction” — and The Sovereign, which recently claimed the U.S. military is building a robot army to wage war against Americans on behalf of Israel. Tsarnaev subscribed to the American Free Press, an anti-Semitic weekly that promotes antigovernment conspiracy theories and Holocaust denialism, and was so taken by The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, a notorious forgery that describes a vast Jewish conspiracy to rule the world, that he told his landlady she should read it, too.”
