The 26-year-old Chinese engineer turned entrepreneur, who prefers to go only by the name Danny, spoke with Moskowitz, who was interviewed by All Things Considered host Robert Siegel.

So is he still sporting the Coexist sticker?
Ping! First interview
Audio of NPR interview with Moskowitz (Boston Globe)

Also: Greta interviewed Moskowitz tonight on her program.
Pinging the crew!
There is no doubt that this Chinese man fears for his life and is unwilling to come forward until his is required to testify. Coming from a more difficult society..maybe China or Taiwan or HK..he knows that he is in danger from these radicals.
I heard he left his phone in the car so they were able to trace it. I’ll read the link later on this fine American!
IRONY is a rich and human subject.
Wow. That explains a lot. Very cool. I’m guessing that the brothers were heading out of town when they were pinged and chased.
A gas station that didn’t take credit cards?
I’d like to get a pic of this guy.
Looks like we can stop wondering if he was ever involved since he told the cops how to track the bombers through his GPS and phone.
I spoke too soon, lol.
This is carjack victim’s first interview.
Do you want on the Boston Bombing ping list? I just started one tonight.
Why did they carjack the guy when they already had a vehicle???
Or this guy?
Done! You all help me keep up with articles that come out etc. never done a ping list before...lol. Scared I am going to screw up and miss stuff now.
Just in case he looks like this guy.
yes - in the wrong place at the wrong time, but we Americans are so fortunate he was there. He made brilliant moves under the circumstances.
He has been wanting to avoid the publicity, and Moskowitz agreed to use only is first name.
“He told [the police] that his iPhone and the satellite system in the car could both be tracked,” Moskowitz says.
PS: THANKS for getting a ping list started!!!
That’s ‘Naked Guy’......We are never going to find out who the naked guy is...lol.
Good post...with this story we never know.
Then we have RoofGuy, and OnHisKneesGuy...
Impossible to screw it up. :-)
Freepers will ping you to ping the ping list.
Mesta knows all about it. Think she has carried about three/four of them at the same time-—all hot topics/crimes.
IIRC, after the carjack victim escaped, the bombers abandoned their own car along the side of a rode.
Yes..Mesta has been kind enough to already give me some tips!
The guy on the ground looks like a typical Cleveland Browns fan. (without the puke)
I should not laugh, but the absurdity of all the media and government spin is ridiculous.
Add me to the ping list list please.
Thanks so much.
Preview before hitting post.
Isn’t this a bit too neatly tied up? If they hadn’t told him they were the bombers, his 911 about a car hijacking wouldn’t have gotten
much attention that night.
But they told him (although they were on the run); and he was in a position to report them to the police, along with the make and license of the car?
Or is there more to it somehow?
I put you on the Boston Bombing ping list without asking you...lol. If you don’t want on, I will not get my feelings hurt. No biggie.
I have to be on it!
I read everything!
Could you please add me too?
And, one hint...put that in alphabetical order NOW before it gets out of hand...
Mesta probably told you that already, huh. :)
I am just putting the names in a list on my notebook and then copying and pasting them. Is there a better way?
Check your mail, Chickee. ;)
Check your mail, Chickee. ;)
Thought it'd be nice to link this article to this thread.
This man is sharp and smart. His brain work (and legwork) helped solve this terror nearly with the speed of light!
Thank you and bookmark!!
Headed to bed. Sweet dreams all.
Please add me to your list
Please add me as well!
This guy has oodles of wealth you know....his vhicle was about 50 grand....Wonder if he’s protecting his parents by not wanting to reveal his real name? They may very well be well known, at least in his country.
Uh?....Then when they were having the fire fight, where did the second car they were taking bombs out of come from?...you can see the door opened from the second car in the photo, next to the SUV....(photos taken by the guy on the 3rd floor)
I admit, I’m thinking along the same lines as you. It just is way too linear for me. My spidey senses were all over this one the night this all unfolded.
Hope I’m wrong. Time will tell.
It seems that suspect white hat was driving the car and followed the brother in the carjacked auto. They pulled over and transferred their bags of goodies. The younger brother jumped in the truck with them other two and iirc, when he escaped, they went and got the other car again.
These were not the sharpest knives in the drawer.
Isnt this a bit too neatly tied up?
coexist sticker was on bomber’s car not the hi-jacked car
Ahh, isn’t that sweet. A candle light dinner.
Of all the crazy things to ask, why would anyone think he couldn’t drive across state lines? Perhaps it was lost in translation. Here’s a crazy observation - with all the foreigners in this story, are there any Americans in Boston anymore?
