And the ones they do answer, if any, will be lies. I hate the fact that I have no trust or faith in my own federal government, but I don't, not even a little. I wouldn't believe anything they say.

The main statement at the news conference is that they found the guilty party, they know his name and everything about him, but he got away, in the neck of time, and now is enroute to Saudi Arabia.... BUT, they’ll make sure it never happens again!

Morning radio here quoted an FBI guy saying it would be weeks, at least two, before they had a lead. Too much data to sift through, dontcha know.

I am going to predict that this will be a worthless joke if it is not cancelled.

It’ll be one and a half new facts, and 37 minutes of different government agencies patting themselves and each other on the back.

Now lets remember.....Obama just left. And not for nothing but he "owns" the FBI and Janet.

It's likely why they cancelled the other day. He wants nothing in writing....nothing recorded....

Makes it even more likely that they're Muslims.

I would be inclined to agree with that.

Because of the high-profile nature of the event and the sheer number of people out there using digital cameras, video equipment, etc., this is one of those cases where too much information is the problem instead of too little.

And that's exactly why they likely have video of the suspect/suspects entering the field of view of multiple cameras, video and stills, and exiting the field of views, without a backpack...This isn't rocket science.

Please don`t jump to any conclusions of how this was able to be carried out, or, by who.... Remember, we are now here to bring these people to justice. Thank you, no questions....”

Oh, questions will be allowed. That's the point, to give the press a way to vent some steam. My prediction is that there won't be any answers.

Anyone is insane if they believe Obama will allow this bombing to be tied to an Islamic radical or group. He is way too far out on the limb for these people and personally, I think some powerful radical leaders in the Middle East know quite a bit about him.

To anyone watching Fox News:

Can anyone confirm that Fox stated that the video clearly shows a young (or very young), white male dropping the bag? Also, it was apparently stated that this video does not appear anywhere online.

Given the behavior of the media, I wouldn’t take anything they say too seriously, much less a rumor about what they said. Just looking for confirmation that Fox News stated that.

I heard on local radio (Howie Carr) a little while ago that the pic all over the internet of the guy in the blue jacket standing with the other guy in a black jacket, white cap and back pack is actually a Revere High School student and not a terrorist. Apparently he’s going to go to the cop shop and clear this up. I did not catch where Howie got the info, so I don’t know if this is true. Just thought I’d throw it out there and see if anyone else has heard this info.

No one in the media should have "credentials", none of them are qualified to report on the activity on an ant hill.

"I'd say they have a hell of a lot of questions to answer...."

..... I find it curious that the news universe was reporting yesterday that either an "arrest was imminent" or "a person has already been arrested" in connection to the Boston incident......

.... Then the dialogue suddenly changed to .... "Those reports were totally erroneous and false." After the denial reports from the Feds we hear that the Prez has an unscheduled meeting with the Saudi Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal.. Then we hear that suddenly the Saudi person of interest, Abdul Rahman Ali Alharbi, that was interviewed and supposedly cleared of wrongdoing was suddenly being deported.

..... .... I am beginning to wonder if Alharbi may indeed be part of the guilty parties and has now been granted some kind of DI (Diplomatic Immunity) that was arranged at the Meeting with Mr Faisal under the terms that he will be deported and never to return to the US. Further, Is it possible that Alharbi is to be deleted from official investigative reports on account of the DI and two other persons of interest who Alharbi was associated with and who is not covered under DI will be arrested and tried for crimes against this country. That is, if they have not already left the country.

Yes. I’ve seen it on many FR threads today from several sources.

Also, I just heard an ABC news radio report that the FBI will be releasing the video of two people of interest and that this video has not been previously released or distributed.

"“We can’t show you all the video because the perps are obviously Arab..but instead, we are just going to stand here and blame Republicans and sequestration for all of this..the GOP and NRA are evil.......”

This morning I heard a radio report in which they quoted some Mississippi guy who had at one time hired "KC the Ricin Jerk" as an Elvis impersonator, identifying the guy that did the hiring as a "Republican," but....not so amazingly, FAILED to identify KC the Ricin jerk as a Democrat, even though "KC" calls himself a Democrat on his facebook,and expresses viewpoints in harmony with the Dems.

So "Republican" gets associated with the story, but "Democrat" does not. And the journalists are stupid enough to wonder why they are not respected liked by conservative Republicans.
