On CNN the lady reporter asked the guy on the scene if there was an FBI presence, and he said no. But moments before, a guy with an FBI shirt passed directly behind the reporter!

Sounds like a drug deal gone bad. Car-jackings don’t seem to be Jihadi style....

While John Batchelor was still on the air, I heard his correspondent say something like "it looks like the white one."

I am hearing on Broadcastify now that "the second suspect is NOT in custody."

Btw, did anyone else hear on Fox that some agency of our government was making a request of Pakistan, in connection with the marathon bombing?

I’m not sure if he is a suspect or just someone not cooperating. Could be a misguided yoot.

FBI on scene.... agents don’t investigate or lend assistance in general robberies or carjackings, so likely some suspicions that these two could be the Marathon Day terrorist bombers.

Yamamoto was talking about a conventional military invasion. These guys don’t wear uniforms and go charging into battle under the banner of the Rising Sun.

Will they not fall and bleed just like a soldier when an armed citizen stops their terror attack?

I saw the video earlier. Guns were drawn by officers and the dude in that image remained in that position. Reporters do not know for sure if he is related to the activities. A reporter on the scene said that he (the reporter) didn't see that person with any weapons.

This is Shamil Basayev, who was a Chechen Islamist leader. He was the leader of the Chechen Islamist militas that pulled off attacks in Beslan, and were responsible for the Moscow Theatre siege. The stereotype of the swarthy muslim terrorist is a dangerous perception. Intel captured as part of the Bin Laden compound raid, revealed plans to recruit “western looking” muslims to infiltrate the west.

I dare say, no armed citizen could have stopped this week’s terror attack. What are you going to do, just shoot everyone who is not you?

NO, NO, two redneck tea party-type conservative NRA gun-owners, registered Republicans just coming out of Wednesday services at a homophobic Evangelical church where they held a militia meeting in the fellowship hall while drinking Big Gulps and eating Chick-fil-a sandwiches.
