cell phone records. sloppy or else suicide bomber types really don't care if they get caught. They prefer to live and bomb another day. But if they get caught that is the cost of doing business I suppose.

But, if they are martyred, they get a bunch of 'virgins"...

The old Usama rule was no communication after an attack has begun. They should have paid attention.

Of course the 19 were going to be martyrs anyways so who cares.

Thanks CBS/DailyMail for explaining this in public, so the next terrorist won’t make the same mistake.

Great job.

British press, as always, gets it.

“The video obtained by the FBI captures this man using his cellphone at the moment the first explosion detonated 100 yards away on Boylston Street on Monday and 12 seconds before the second blast close to where he is standing.

Federal agents then focused on the time-frame of that conversation to retrieve cell-phone records to identify potential callers according to CBS News.

Call logs were then obtained through the cell phone masts surrounding the attack zone and using these, investigators matched up the users’ identity with the time specific video and pictures to zero in on the individual.”

Yeah, right. I’m sure the bomber used his own personal cell phone, instead of, say, an untraceable throwaway available for a few bucks in every Walmart in America.

Why is it that we get news from the Daily Mail in London? The US media is an embarassment.

Should have been using a track phone. Smash it and scatter the pieces in the harbor after you’re done.
Maybe they have the wrong guy?

They’re pretty stupid alright, that’s the definition of the kind of person who does this kind of stuff. But I think they’ve learned that there’s no percentage in suicide bombing. These guys won’t give up. We need to tighten up our immigration policies and not allow these people entry into the country. Am I profiling? You damn well better believe I am. It’s not the Amish making these terrorists attacks world-wide. And it’s not American citizens. Well, with a few notable exceptions like the nutcase Unabomber and leftist Bill Ayers’ Weathermen, et al.

For $10-$20 cash, anyone can get a disposable pre-paid phone. For another $20, he can get a pre-paid card with enough minutes for the job. The only trick would be to put on a costume, complete with mask, while paying for it or to buy it far ahead of time so the security video has been written over.

I have to wonder if this guy was just cheap, like the first WTC bomber who went back to the rental center for the deposit, after claiming that the van had been stolen. Maybe he watched Homeland and thought investigators have no way of telling what phone number made a phone call to alert a terrorist chief about an impending assassination attempt. Heck, maybe he even thought cell phone signals aren't jammed inside the Pentagon building.

Who says it was a disposable Wal-Mart phone? Speculations based on nothing.

In all the photos being discussed on FR, did anybody recognize someone of this description:

“wearing a black jacket, a grey hooded sweatshirt and a white or off-color-white baseball cap backwards “

The Feds were provided with the authority to track suspected terrorists via cell phone records as part of the Patriot Act. Gee, the left isn't going to like that.

I have little faith in ALL federal law enforcement these days. Only saving grace would be that A) They got a close enough view to notice it was a smart phone, or B) Gotta follow EVERY lead. If A, it’s probably not the culprits and if B, CYA must be out in full force

I don’t know if this is related or not. I was talking to a v close friend in the close vicinity of the bombing, ~4 hrs after it happened. I happened to mention that the bombs were put in trashcans—& the cell connection was severed. I heard a v strange signal, like an emergency frequency noise that I have never heard before, after which the line went dead. Fwiw.

Investigators said the individual is seen at the site of the second explosion wearing a black jacket, a grey hooded sweatshirt and a white or off-color-white baseball cap backwards

All these pictures, and I still dont see the individual with a grey hoody and a black jacket on. Also it seems most of the pictures posted are from the first blast, not the second.
