These authorities are about 24 hours late to the party. People on the internet and here at FR all had these two guys pegged about 20 minutes after the first photos were circulated yesterday morning.
The authorities were apparently all looking for angry white men. We were all looking for younger Arabs. These guys stood out like a sore thumb. We were right. They wasted a good 24 hours because they wanted to be politically correct.
They probably flew back to Yemen sometime yesterday while Obama was melting down over his failure to exploit the Sandy Hook massacre.
Political Correctness kills.
‘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.’
This could be because then Obama has to actually look like he is doing something to confront another nation. This way it can go on and on and on without the public actually knowing who is doing it. This deportation may be part of that.
Yeah, but in this case the maximum crowd size was around 2:10 to 2:30 race time when the elite runners would be crossing the finish line. The bombs did not go off until the crowd was much thinner at 4:09.
White ________ (fill in the blank)
Most of these photos were posted on FR yesterday, but there is a new version in which a "live" photo of the probable perps is superimposed on "ground zero" after the fact -- this is very convincing.
I don't think there can be much doubt anymore that the two operatives are Middle Eastern. Hence Obama's attempts at distraction.
Look well shaved from head to toe. Wonder what religion they belong to?
Pray for America to Wake Up
Goes to show that the authorities are playing catch-up.
I'm not convinced that these are the guys based upon the photos and other info that has been released so far. The guy with the white cap is carrying a dark backpack that seems to blend in with his dark jacket and as a result, I can't tell from the NY Post photos (as well as the other photos that were all over the internet yesterday) whether or not he still has the backpack in later photos. Also, if he planted the backpack with the bomb in it sometime prior to 12:30 pm, then what are the odds that the backback would remain in the same spot unmolested for over three hours until the bombs went off? The area was crawling with uniformed and plain clothed LEO as well as private security and petty thieves.
With that said, there were reports late yesterday afternoon about a video of a dark-skinned guy wearing a black jacket, white hoodie, and cap turned backwards, dropping a backpack in the area where the second bomb exploded across from Saks Fifth Avenue. Directly to the left of the two guys in the photo there is another guy who meets the description of the guy in the alleged video.
You can tell if they’re legal or illegal just by looking?
I don’t find it convincing at all.
I think he still has the backpack on in the second photo. It’s just underexposed.
I don’t think Moroccans are Arabs.
That guy needs to be ID'd and investigated.
Two points though: the way he is holding the bag makes it hard to believe that it is heavy or bulky enough to contain a pressure cooker filled with nails, ball bearings and gunpowder. But you never know, photos can be deceiving.
Second point is, I think the bag residue in the photo is from the 2nd bombing site. (The photo of this guy with the bag is from the 1st bombing site.) What was reported is that at the 2nd bombing site, the Lord & Taylor store camera showed a dark-skinned guy with a backwards white hat depositing the bomb bag.
Now maybe this guy was working with that guy, and they used the same type of bag at both locations. But anyway this guy needs to be checked out, he is at the critical location holding a suspicious bag.
Those damn Amish teapartiers!!! /s
Morocans are Muslims = Islamics
I dunno...they sure look like old white guy right wing rabid home grown terrorists to me.
Nope, no Muslim here....
I bet the stupid news media will skip over the fact that the ricin mailer is a democrat. if he were a Republican then that’s all we would hear about on the TV,radio, Internet etc.
Moroccans are Berbers, which is a subset of Arabs.
It’s unconvincing as evidence that they did anything, even assuming it’s correct as to ground zero.
Saudi National in Boston Bombing being deported on “National Security Grounds”
4/17/13 | Pamela Geller
Steve Emerson just broke the shocking news that the Saudi National, Abdul al-Harbi, first questioned in the Boston bombing, is going to be deported on “national security grounds.” He is from a very powerful Saudi family with many terrorist ties. Abdul al-Harbi is a devout Muslim from Medina.
I said it takes longer than 15 hours to investigate all of Abdul al-Harbi’s relatives, friends, acquaintances, and business and school friends.
Perhaps a quick look at the Arabic sources should raise the eyebrows of every American relative to the extent of the problem at hand. Many from Al-Harbis clan are steeped in terrorism and are members of Al-Qaeda. Out of a list of 85 terrorists listed by the Saudi government shows several of Al-Harbi clan to have been active fighters in Al-Qaeda:
When I heard he was from a very powerful Saudi family, I worried about this kind of thing happening.
Secretary of State Kerry’s meeting with the Saudi Foreign Minister Saud Al-Faisal was abruptly closed to the press the day Abdul al-Harbi was being questioned. There is no doubt in my mind that this was discussed.
Today’s embarassing display of rolling incompetence and badly mangled leaks led to numerous cancellations of press conferences, mis-identified suspects, promises of imminent arrest, walking back the arrest announcement, and more. They said they would release a statement and then said they wouldn’t.
He is still clearly wearing the backpack in this photo, where the NY Post claims it’s gone.
Thanks...great links. But after reading some of the posts here, like #51 above, I’m not so sure the NY Post is correct. the mods have not taken this down yet, so perhaps they have not seen the alleged refutations...or nothing has been confirmed.
second row - 4th from left (or 3rd from right - second row)
Buckhead and tankerKC If I recall.
This is what the UK Press would call “Asian”
Well... the one suspect might of been a runner... But he sure as heck WAS NOT RUNNING IN THE RACE.
It looks like he registered as a runner, but instead chose to stand exactly where the bomb went off...
I know that: Morocans are Berbers, Berbers are Arabs, Arabs are Muslims, and therefore, Morocans are Muslims. (Yes, I know that not all Arabs are Muslim.)
Fox news just showed the cover of the NY Post newspaper on TV - but said they aren’t going to release any photo’s yet
until it’s okayed by Law Enforcement
Yeah, and the media doesn’t say the Senator is a Republican, thus leaving the low information people to assume he was in the same party as Obozo.
On FOX (just now), they said these two guys are still suspects.
Especially then one in the blue
They just said on the news...
White Guy 6’0” to 6’2” tall (seen at second bomb site)
On Cell Phone
Hand White Hat on backwards
Black Coat with Gray Hoodie
Set backpack down while on Phone. First bomb went off and he took off running. Left backpack on ground near where 2nd bomb went off.
No one is disputing the report that the Lord & Taylor surveillance video shows a young man ("dark-skinned," according to John King at CNN), taking off the backpack and leaving it on the ground at ground zero.
Since the Lord & Taylor camera recorded as a video, not a still shot, I have to believe that will be d*mn convincing ... once we're allowed to see it.
Cutting the timing close.
Or maybe Amish.
Hand White Hat on Backwards = Had White Hat on Backwards
Also appeared to be alone.
which news source?
You’re still missing the key word which is Islam
They stand out. The photo reminds me of the scene from Scarface when the two sweaty guys with machine guns try to take out tony while he’s puffing on a cigar at the Babylon club. The guys just look nervous and don’t belong.
They are now putting out pics of people they want us to look at/for, so why not a pic of the L&T guy?
He might have been recognized by now.
The blue guy is a well known runner, so why doesn’t he belong?
