Skip to comments.Marathon terror investigators may release video to public

..The lead investigators of the Boston Marathon terror attack are at federal offices right now to meet and discuss whether to release a surveillance video to the public for help in identifying people in the video, an official said.
No decision has been made yet on whether to release it, said Christina DiIorio-Sterling of the U.S. Attorneys office..
She cautioned against speculation about possible suspects and packages in images of the Marathon crowds. Today, the New York Post printed photos of two men widely circulated on the Internet that the paper said have been e-mailed to law enforcement.
Unless someone from the media is in possession of a photo from the FBI, they should consider it not credible, DiIorio-Sterling said.
WTH wouldn’t they?
Waiting just long enough so that Obama’s Muslim buddies can get out of the country.
CHECK THIS OUT!!!!
Young people, less than 18 years old, [have been recruited] to carry out terrorist attacks in the country [Yemen]. Al-Qaeda leaders trained these people inside and outside Yemen.
The announcement comes after the arrest of a most suspect wanted by Yemen and Saudi authorities, Abdullah Abdul Rahman al-Harbi who was held mid this month.
Investigations with al-Harbi revealed he has been living in Yemen for nine months and that he, during the period and while he has worked as a tailor shop /
yeah. remember when the left went off after 911 and started saying that the Bush Admin had secreted Saudi families out of the country?
Because that would be admitting that they don’t have a clue. Literally.
They sure spent a lot of time screaming for help only to turn around and lock down all info.
It has already become a cluster****.
>> WTH wouldnt they?
Because political correctness trumps everything else, including our safety and the proper performance of their jobs.
The Globe’s source adds that the best images of these two men don’t come from the Lord & Taylor surveillance camera that led to so much speculation on Wednesday; they come from cameras on the same side of the street as the explosions.
And John Miller of CBS News, a veteran of the FBI and the NYPD who interviewed Osama bin Laden and whose actual sourcing was key to the public learning the early truth about Newtown, maintained on the radio today that while images will be released today, they will have to do with a single “person of interest.”
Interesting interview with John Miller (audio only).
Just throwing that out there BTW, have no idea but I would not surprise me in the least that the government could have leads that compromise diplomatic “natures” and do not want to address this now (For public consumption).
That’s the same family name as the Saudi guy in Boston who is being Deported on national security grounds
Stinks like a smelly obama.
Law enforcement needs to man up and tell the politicians to stuff it, let enforcement run the investigation, or fire them.
I used to respect John Miller. I remember years ago, he was a local NY WNBC reporter and covered John Gotti — followed him everywhere, and did wonderful stories on the mob. We was a good guy back then, and even after 9/11 seemed to be on the side of justice. Now he falls in line with every other network news guy...in the bag for Obama and totally left.
Arrogant government bullsh!t. I suppose that the only photos one has to consider and believe about Ruby Ridge, or say, Waco are government (FBI) photos. Had I been there, DiIorio-Sterling whatever would have heard a very derisive belly laugh...
Anything else this person says on this can be trusted, period
Were this true, then the revelation that Dan Rather's 'evidence' against a supposedly dereliction of duty during guard service would not have emerged (IIRC, here on FR or very very soon there after).
Crap like this only reinforces my growing distrust of this Obama Government.
They don’t have a clue. They will never catch who did it.
It would be interesting to see a breakdown of the time wasted ‘training’ on PC nonsense like avoiding racial profiling, sexual harassment, a gay-friendly workplace, etc.
J. Edgar Hoover would hang his head in shame at the state of federal law enforcement, who are big on paramilitary gear, hi-viz vests, press conferences and so forth but who seem to lack any sort of personal or collective initiative - i.e. proper detective skills - in narrowing a search quickly. They do love their press conferences and fifty-cent words, though.
When they have a case to build, they are mum. As you say, their embarrassing public pleas for help are a tacit admission that despite loads of evidence dropped into their laps via the modern fetish for video recording anything and everything, they are throwing their hands up less than a week after the incident.
Bummer. I was hoping he was one of the good guys.
the white guy with the beard is the one who looks most suspicious to me. Unabomber-esque
Isn’t the identity obvious? A life member of the NRA who attended a Tea Party meeting and then dropped off the black bag when he was on his way to picket a womyn’s reproductive health clinic. His name is Marinus van der Lubbe, and he will kill himself as the police close in on him.
It would be better to stay out front of it. With as much stuff out there, they should be having press conferences every two hours. Instead, they can barely come up with a coherent public statement.
Just saw Napolitano address congress and say they wanted the public to help identify the suspects. With no description or pictures just how do we go about doing that?
10 or 15 years ago I stopped a white woman from trying to drag a little black kid into a van and called police. The woman called me a racist and the black cop said I would be stupid to not notice race.
Turned out that the kid was mentally retarded and the white woman was a foster parent who just happened to be a liberal idiot.
Because they did allow the Bin Laden family to leave.
Because it may not be the guys. How would you feel if they released your picture?
Someone posted that they have found the two guys and have released them.
Reddit says that, but Reddit will not give their names etc because of privacy. I don’t know what to think, but NY Post released the photos that they said LE gave them. Of course, NYP also said 12 people died in the blasts.
I think this story has been debunked. Take a look at some of the earlier threads.
No, the New York Post printed the photos they said that the newspaper had obtained from an email (which they described as one circulating among law enforcement types) that was sent to them. As to who, exactly, sent the email (and photos) to the Post, the newspaper story doesn't say.
But note that the Post story never does say anything along the lines of: "Law enforcement authorities sent us these pictures and told us that these are the guys they're looking for."
My guess it that the Post has cocked it up, blithely running a "too-good-to-check" story this morning that had already been overtaken by events.
This administration don’t do clues. They do complicity.
Thanks for the correction. (I got it from Drudge, btw, and the link has since been removed from that site.)
Yesterday we heard the FBI investigators were showing around an image and questioning people. I heard at least two reports say they had seen the images, but WOULD NOT describe them. Which begs the question, if the FBI didn’t want the images widely distributed, for whatever reason, why the hell would they be showing the images to reporters...? These reporters weren’t at the event. They are the last person you’d show if you truly didn’t want the pictures to spread. I don’t understand any of this.
This makes me wonder two things....
1.). Were the pictures leaked and then the media was asked not to publish them? If the pictures were leaked, was it done to subvert an ongoing coverup?
2.). More ominously, do they anticipate a possible second strike locally and want the reporters and their crews to know these faces.
News reports that something “may” happen are useless, because they also may “not” happen.
I'm still hoping that they are looking like Barney Fife to get the perps to drop their guard and come out of hiding.
I still can't understand how with all of that photography and surveliance tape they aren't closer.
yeah just release the damn video of the perp (which they claim they can clearly see the face). THe lord and taylor video shows the man placing the bomb! It’s a direct link that can’t be explained away. once they find this guy it could lead to connections to other perps in the crowd pictures.
