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.”

...which claims they have been identified and cleared.

Well, this is the NY Post story from this AM. One photo I saw elsewhere shows white hat with knapsack and then w/o it. I believe these are the guys. We shall see soon enough.

Yup! FR did indeed link up a number of photos regarding these two.

Drawback is we don't know if they are the ones, but definitely persons of extreme interest.

Plus, I would not be surprised if FR is not crawling with FBI watching the threads about the bombing.

FR does have a reputation after-all.

According to a thread on Reddit the guy's facebook page was located. The guy's a Moroccan student and a bona fide runner. Supposedly he and his buddy are talking to LEO to clear themselves.

See the thread: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3009173/posts?q=1&;page=51

If these guys are the real bombers, I was wondering why they would stand around with bombs on their backs watching the race for 2 hours.

In any event, they should be looked at closely to clear them or not.

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.

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?

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.

...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.

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.)

If that guy is Moroccan, that country has a long history of producing excellent long distance runners. In that case this guy could have finished the race close to two hours before the four hour time period and been dressed and standing around waiting for a slower teammate....who knows?

“In that case this guy could have finished the race close to two hours before the four hour time period and been dressed and standing around waiting for a slower teammate....who knows?”

If a fellow Moroccan took 4 hours to run the race, that guy wouldn’t be standing around - he would have left in shame. They are very good runners.

"If these guys are the real bombers, I was wondering why they would stand around with bombs on their backs watching the race for 2 hours."

To give time for the runners to approach the finish line, and the crowd there to reach maximum size. I recall seeing that they used "egg timers" to set the explosives off. I'm not aware of any mechanical timers of that sort having very long maximum time settings.

A quick search shows that most such timers have a maximum time of one hour, so they would need to near the spot where they intended to set the bombs off up until one hour before the end of the race.
