I have the name of the one in the blue coat. (I won't post it) but he was student at Revere High School in Boston MA.
My understanding is that they have already been cleared of any wrong doing. He is a part of a athletic runners club in Boston MA also.

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.

To give time for the runners to approach the finish line, and the crowd there to reach maximum size.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

So what happened to this guy?

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.

What exactly do you not find convincing about the superimposed photo? The two guys' position at "ground zero," with respect to the Forum cafe's sidewalk rail, is exact. OK, I'm going to post the superimposed version here ... to see the photos separately, go to http://imgur.com/a/f2iNp

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-Harbi’s 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.

Very smelly.

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.

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'm not going by the Post's reporting.

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.
