Well, this development - a bombshell (no pun intended) if it holds up - might finally shed some light on these two that look so much like plainclothes operators:

Interesting that Tamerlan was wearing khaki pants, a dark jacket, and a dark hat with an emblem on it, much like these guys.

That is a style of clothing called “roughies.” Worn by civil affairs/others. It is well known, world wide. Either they’re idiots that have to- or camo’d for the idiots.
These are security officers, but not from Boston. The guy on the right has been identified as a Saudi prince bodyguard. This picture was taken after the first explosion.
Some one pointed out the guy on the right (in your top photo) is some Saudi prince this or that, who is responsible for ‘security’, attached to Saudi embassy.

I saw a story ID’ing them as members of the National Guard, and the packs contain radiation detectors. This pair, and another like them, were tasked with sweeping the area for nukes or dirty-bombs that would have a radio-active signature. Note they’re both holding/adjusting their ear-pieces as well. As said in another post above, this pic was taken shortly after the blasts, so any inference that these were bombs or bombers isn’t accurate.

I wonder who they were watching...the saudis or the chechens...or both?

Thanks for posting these pictures. Some freepers picked up how military looking these guys were shortly after the attack.
So were they FBI, jerks/thugs from Homeland Security or private ex military?

The photo of the two guys has been on the web since Wednesday.
Plainclothes (not so plain) security people ? Those are very big backpacks.
