Looks to me like he’s talking with the guy in the blue jacket. And neither one of them looks “white” to me.

But remember ... I carry a backpack and when I’m standing still I often set it on the ground at my feet.

So many people with track outfits and things for the runners. The know the size of the vessel and what lump it would make.

lol sorry but that ms paint pressure cooker drawn on the back pack is too much.

Maybe he’s holding it in his hands in the pic where it looks like he doesn’t have it.

Check out the protrusion on the backpack....could be the cooker on it's side.

The photo of him staring out, while everyone else around him is looking another way ..also is suspicious IMO. He looks like he's zoned out or into thought.

does he look like the guy who’s being deported? Some side by side comparison might help

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3009173/posts - they have been ID but that info cannot not be posted here. They are not suspects. The guys Facebook page is wide open LE knows who they are.

Nah, Can’t you see? Those are Christian, NRA loving, tea party members. Janet Napolitano and the military were right to target those hate groups. I’m so glad our Nobel prize winning President Obama turned a new leaf away from that Bush warmonger and established peace with our Jihadi brothers. That’s why we don’t need those crazy terror alert systems or a war on terror.

Nope. They look like a pair of Columbia University professors worthy of glamorization in a Hollywod movie. Are wea sick society, or what? Savage had it right - the enemy within.

Those guys in tan pants, black jackets could be decoys to draw attention away from a patsy. The bombers would know the video’s afterwards would look for guys with black backpacks. The suspicious bag by the maibox was inside a whitish bag. I think this was definately a team effort. Lots of decoys and ‘handlers’.

Why would Law Enforcement be wearing a heavy black backpack?

Also the Saudi being deported was ‘tackled’ because he acted suspicious after the incident. He might have known something was up, but maybe wasn’t the actual perp. With his royal famiy ties, he’ll get off.

True. But, look at the guy’s arms in the “without” photo. Either he badly needs to go to the bathroom or else he’s holding something heavy in front of him, just out of range of the photo.

Concur that he looks to be holding something...but that’s what you would do if you were trying to position it without drawing too much attention.

Normally, in a situation like that, one would simply keep the pack on the whole time. If the pack is heavy...then that begs other questions (yes, maybe a photographer...but he certainly doesn’t look gay, so not sure why else it would be heavy).

I also didn’t notice the facial hair until I zoomed. Now I understand why they needed that explosion in Texas last night...things were going bad for the Administration.

‘Who needed?”

Them. Boston was pointing towards Middle Eastern terrorism. The narrative now, from the administration, is that terrorism, at least in the US, is only done by right-wing whackos, and thus no need for secure borders or being careful who legally enters.

Bottom line - this hurts their chance for Amnesty if it gets linked to the foreigners.

And if it contains a big pot filled with probably 20 - 30 lbs. of explosives, ball bearings and nails, there's going to be major "droop" in the bottom of those packs......

the Nobag pic doesn’t show him without a backpack. He could be holding it.

i have only seen one pic of the blue robe guy, with a backpack on his right arm—looks like he could easily place it on the sidewalk from that position.

But I haven’t seen a series of pics with him in it. He looks around 40 or so.

These other two young guys have been ID and they are not suspects, yet their pics are flooding the airwaves this morning.

We also need to identify whether the pictures we are looking at are from bomb site #1 or #2.

Good work IF these are really the two the FBI thinks did it. But why do we have to speculate? Why does not the FBI put out the photos they think show the terrorists now? If they did, 300 million Americans would be able to help them identify and /or find the guys. My local ABC radio news program (Chicago , 7:40 AM CST) just reported that the FBI will officially disseminate the photos to the public AFTER the president emotes at Boston today. If the photos are ready now,it is dereliction of duty not to release them forthwith.

Two? I don’t get it. When you go to the website, and carefully look at all the pictures, there are 5 or more suspects. At least three of them look like mid-easterners. A couple of them look white, which doesn’t mean much because lots of “mid-eastern” looking men are not muslim and lots of “white looking” men are muslim. The point is that all of the suspects—white or brown—are probably Jihadists. Color is a big deal to the liberal media despite the fact that the Jihadist ideology is not superficial.

Go HERE and click on the link in that comment (comment #164) to see the Flickr album of the original photographer who took these and many other photos of race day as well as blue suit and white cap guys. You can download/view very high res copies.

I'm gonna be out today taking friend to hospital, so can't chat right now. Hoping this is solved soon...

Looks like he took the lettered hoodie off at some point, likely too warm for it, probably put it in the pack.

Also notice that sometime between when he had the backpack on and when he took it off he decided to put his sunglasses on.

As if he wanted the glasses on while he was possibly planting the bomb?

No, I’m certain he has nothing to do with the bombs.

He doesn’t have the pack on because he had to take the hoodie off, imo.

Connect the dots.

The president gets destroyed on gun control. Boston is looking like people from the Middle East. And, finally, there has never been an explosion of this magnitude in the US, in half a century.

Coincidence? I don’t know, but there are people that STILL blame Bush Jr. for 9-11, so what goes around, comes around. I think this administration should PROVE they had nothing to do with it.

(i.e., it’s time we play by their rules)
