Cops are seeking these two men (above) who were spotted near the site of the Boston blasts. Investigators probing the deadly Boston Marathon bombings are circulating photos of two men spotted chatting near the packed finish line, The Post has learned.

In the photos being distributed by law-enforcement officials among themselves, one of the men is carrying a blue duffel bag. The other is wearing a black backpack in the first photo, taken at 10:53 a.m., but it is not visible in the second, taken at 12:30 p.m.

“The attached photos are being circulated in an attempt to identify the individuals highlighted therein,” said an e-mail obtained by The Post. “Feel free to pass this around to any of your fellow agents elsewhere.”

The feds always monitor our sight, so I guess we (FreeRepublic) can take some of the credit.

Yep. The Internet had these photos quite early after the bombing. I guess the FBI finally looked at them.

You are correct, the media wanted two white American men.
Here in Europe the media are also hoping it is white people involved, they have already decided it was some right wing party behind the event.

CBS News called this guys “White” yesterday. They already have the narrative written.

Thanks. It would seem that the Post should have known they were cleared, but did not (if they were). If the guy is the one, why would he have had his pic taken?

They are going to try to drag it out until public interest wanes, then make an announcement over the weekend.

This IS the Post we are talking about. The ‘12 people dead!’ Post.

I don’t know we know for sure that they are (or should be) cleared. The guy could be a legitimate Morrocan student and distance runner and still be a bomber. But at least it appears LEO knows who they are and are talking to them.

Yes. That was what made me think they would be very careful this time.

...considering all the bad press and mistakes Obama has made on Fort Hood all the way through to Benghazi - at the moment, his advisers must be playing this safe.

However, I think Jayna Davis’ book, The Third Terrorist - which illustrates a direct link to Iraq for the Oklahoma City Bombing where only McVeigh and Nichols were blamed - brought up the fact that Clinton didn’t want to go to war —

I would say the same is true in this case for Obama, the little boy is scared and is trying to divert from a massive military build up for invasion for whatever country is responsible for this. With defense cuts (especially in intelligence) a time for this to happen will stain Obama with more blood of US Citizens...least us not forget the four in Libya!

If these are the guys, those are pretty good photos of their faces. They should be able to find them if they are still in this country.

From their looks, they obviously look middle eastern, but that really confuses me. Reason being is that if these are Islamo Fascists and they belong to some group. Why has that group not taken credit for it? They usually love to take credit for their terrorist acts. It’s the whole point of doing it. To get notariety for their cause.

Could this be a new phase of terrorism? Just do it and don’t take credit for it? This could be a scary escalation. If they go after soft targets in America, it will be impossible to stop that. The only way to stop those are “We the people” being very vigilant.

I think that we are going in a new direction when any Mid Eastern teror group WILL not brag about taking credit, so as to keep everyone guesing.

Looks like Muslims. The news media is busy photoshopping them to look whiter

If correct (and it looks like it to my untrained eye), the NY Post may have jumped the shark from "tabloid" to "supermarket tabloid" with this. (Their initial stories about the bombings were completely wrong, too.)
