Was the suspicious behavior bowing toward Mecca?

As Tim Blair says, more Mysterious Men Of No Known Appearance.

Guess the FBI or the station can't say "men of Middle Eastern appearance".

Even if it was, the FBI wouldn't tell you. It might offend Muslims.

Political correctness is going to get us all killed.

Good someone was noticing these guys and shot a picture. With these digital cameras, it makes that so easy. I always carry mine just in case I need it.

Always thought a speed boat bomb into a rush hour Staten Island Ferry in January (frigid water)was/is an inevitability.

Good grief. What the hell were the passengers thinking? They should have had police and/or coastguard on that ferry immediately.

Have they been taking the same ferry all the time, or have they been using different ones?

two men who have been seen acting strangely aboard Washington State ferries recently

passengers have seen the men on several occasions exhibiting unusual behavior.

Being all too familiar with the abysmal grammar skills regularly employed by the MSM, I hesitate to read too much into this, but if one reads it as written it certainly suggests that they were spotted on multiple ferry runs.

Chilling if true.

This article has a few more (scant) details:

SEATTLE -- The FBI is asking for the public's help identifying two men who they say have been exhibiting unusual behavior on Washington state ferries. FBI spokeswoman Robbie Burroughs said the men have been reported by by passengers on several ferry runs and, while the behavior may have been innocuous, investigators would like to talk to the men.

Burroughs said the men appeared to be taking an unusual interest in the workings of the boat, but she would not elaborate. Passengers and crew members on different runs on separate dates reported the men to authorities. Investigators would not disclose on which ferry runs the men were seen. Anyone with information about the men is asked to call the FBI's Seattle office at 206-622-0460.

By the look of those two, does the FBI suspect them of “Brokeback Jihad?”

Those are good clear photos.
Someone should be able to identify the subjects.

OPINION:

And now a word to lurkers...

Just because these photos are online does not mean you’re guilty of anything. If you recognize yourselves or your friends in these photos; give the FBI a call.

My son and I decided to ride the ferry from Lewes, Del. to Cape May, N.J. just for something to do. We were “walking on” leaving the car. It never crossed my mind that they’d have a security checkpoint like an airport. I had a knife in my pocket, but they guy let me keep it. But I wondered, “Wouldn’t the bad guys drive onto the ferry with their weapons in the trunk or something?”.

You're welcome  :-)

I thought that it might be easier for people to compare the photos if they were next to each other.

Abdullah looks close enough to the taller one in the ferry photo that it gives me pause.
