Boston official: Video footage shows bomb suspect
Associated Press ^ | 4/17/13 | DENISE LAVOIE and RODRIQUE NGOWI

Posted on 04/17/2013 6:27:51 PM PDT by Nachum

BOSTON (AP) -- In what could be major break in the Boston Marathon case, investigators are on the hunt for a man seen in a department store surveillance video dropping off a bag at the site of the bombings, a local politician said Wednesday.

Separately, a law enforcement official confirmed that authorities have found an image of a potential suspect but don't know his name.

The development - less than 48 hours after the attack, which left three people dead and more than 170 wounded - marked a possible turning point in a case that has investigators analyzing photos and videos frame by frame for clues to who carried out the twin bombings and why.

City Council President Stephen Murphy, who said he was briefed by Boston police, said investigators saw the image on surveillance footage they got from a department store near the finish line and matched the findings with witness descriptions of someone leaving the scene.

If you had video, release the damn image if you don’t have a name! When has an image not been released to the press when the person is not known? You release the image to get the name and leads quickly.

If he was a honky, we’d be sure to know by now.

I am getting nervous they may be white. Watching hannity right now, he has seen the pictures of the two suspects and seems to be taking a very non-descriptive tone. It all has me pretty confused.
Why not just show the pics?

He’s getting ready to drop it in the 2nd photo. He could be long gone by now. Guy in blue is his lookout.

That’s easy, because the FBI doesn’t want to tip these guys off that they are on to them..if they are shown on TV or even described, they will flee the country, if they haven’t already..this way they won’t see it coming til they are under arrest

Guy with the hat doesn’t really have the arabian hawk-nose. Guy in blue looks more arabian.

If this is them, they’re gone.

On his TV show. He was comparing what he saw online man with white hat in black with what the other correspondent saw in the police photos. They agreed they both saw photos of the same man. I also think “blue jumpsuit” was mentioned for the other guy. So, the one in blue may possibly be the partner.

This was all over reddit today... The white hat and other descriptors all match up from the original reports. Including a very interesting drawing of a pressure cooker in the bag.

Why does anyone in the media get to see the pictures of the suspect,but not the American people? I understand if LE does not want to release them at all for tactical purposes, but showing them to the MSM is categorical BS! Who the hell are they??

Nope, don’t buy it. They would be trying to leave the country the minute after the bomb went off. Releasing the picture would make everyone on the lookout for them. That includes every airport, train, bus station and anywhere in United States and aboard they would not be safe with a 100 million pairs of eyes looking for them.

That’s true..but I think these two guys would have been too scared to get on board a plane right after this happened..Arab dudes on a plane headed out of Boston right when a terrorist attack happens, they would be the first ones looked at

I think you're right. However, Hannity claimed he did not see the photos that the correspondent he was interviewing did see. Hannity told him he saw photos on a website and proceded to ask if the man in the police photo had a white hat and dressed in black. The correspondent replied "yes, indeed. I can say that and you're probably talking about the same two men the police are looking for".

I can only speculate that these photos are the ones that Hannity was describing.

Hannity was asking Hemmer if he saw the photos that the police distributed and they both said it was the guy in the white hat and black jacket, and the other was the guy with the blue jacket and the full, round backpack. The police are searching for these two men.

Kerry had an urgent meeting with the Saudi government yesterday and Obama had an emergency meeting with the Saudi foreign minister this afternoon. Coincidence?

Did Janet let them in??

DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the Fast Pass agreement with little fanfare in January in a statement that read:

I am proud of the bond between the United States and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and today’s meeting marks another major step forward in our partnership. By enhancing collaboration with the Government of Saudi Arabia, we reaffirm our commitment to more effectively secure our two countries against evolving threats while facilitating legitimate trade and travel.

Did they know about the threat ahead of time??

University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.

“They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.

IF the guy in the blue is one of the perps: Nice job looking inconspicuous you jackass. Way to make yourself stand out in a crowd tough guy. You are not only a freaking coward, but also a freaking idiot!

Let me play the devil's advocate:

They have nothing.

Think of it - what would you do? If you had nothing, you'd put out a slow drip, drip, drip saying you had something. The hope being that someone will get nervous and make a move that gives them away.

Just a thought.

Did you hear Hannity just now? The Saudi i. The news yesterday is undergoing an emergency national security deportation? WTF? Yesterday someone posted pics from his facebook and he appeared to be connected to the royal family; wearing the traditional white turban of the royal family. I’ll dig for that.

The guy in the white hat is with the guy in blue, next to him. Both have bags. Guy in blue is clearly talking with guy in white hat in one of the pictures. Backpack bag with guy in white hat has bulge that could easily be pressure cooker. Bag on guy in blue is large duffel, and could easily contain another pressure cooker. Both should be suspects until ruled out by facts, in my law enforcement trained brain.

I doubt they have nothing. It was the most heavily photographed place on earth that day. Hundreds of street cameras, thousands of cell phones cameras, News Crews, and hundreds of regular cameras. It would be impossible to have nothing.

In the second one, I think the guy in BLUE has the bag. Look at the black straps on his shoulders. They don’t show up in the first picture.
