This has been bugging me for a while, and I haven’t seen anyone else mention it. This is from Chapter 7 of Mockingjay, just after the bombing of the hospital in District 8:
I‘m moving in toward the camera now, carried forward by my rage. “President Snow says he‘s sending us a message? Well, I have one for him. You can torture us and bomb us and burn our districts to the ground, but do you see that?” One of the cameras follows as I point to the planes burning on the roof of the warehouse across from us. The Capitol seal on a wing glows clearly through the flames. “Fire is catching!” I am shouting now, determined that he will not miss a word. “And if we burn, you burn with us!”
And this is Chapter 24, the City Circle bombing:
A hovercraft marked with the Capitol‘s seal materializes directly over the barricaded children. Scores of silver parachutes rain down on them. Even in this chaos, the children know what silver parachutes contain. Food. Medicine. Gifts. They eagerly scoop them up, frozen fingers struggling with the strings. The hovercraft vanishes, five seconds pass, and then about twenty parachutes simultaneously explode.
We all know who bombed those kids. Are we sure we know who bombed the hospital? Was it definitely the Capitol, killing the sick and wounded just because they can? Or could it have been done by people whose overarching interest was usable propaganda footage, and who at best showed a very cavalier interest in Katniss’s safety throughout the book?
