AP: The surveillance video shows an unidentified white man in his 40s slipping down an alley and taking off a shirt, revealing another underneath. In the same clip, he's seen looking back in the direction of the smoking vehicle and furtively putting the first shirt in a bag

A real bomber would not casually remove a pull over sweater next to the scene.

This is lame.

I read a comment somewhere earlier (not here) that a real terrorist would have stayed in the vehicle to make sure the bomb went off.

Seriously...

"October 4, 2002 - A former FBI profiler said the sniper killer in suburban Maryland was probably a calculating white man in his 20s or early 30s who lives nearby and has a score to settle. "This isn't somebody who just snapped," said Clinton Van Zandt, a former FBI agent. "This is someone who likes what they're doing. This is someone who is playing God. They're sticking their finger in the face of the authorities and society." The gunman "is somebody who is cold, who is calculating, who has the skills and doesn't care who they hurt," Van Zandt said."

Yep,

The DC snipers look pretty white to me. Sarc

It’s hard to believe someone who wanted to blend in would carry a duffle bag and then stop to remove a shirt, revealing a RED shirt underneath, in front of other pedestrians. Then again... who knows?

It looks like the guy just became too warm in hot weather, so he removed his sweatshirt. If he’s not involved, maybe he’ll come forward... We’ll find out more soon enough...

Looking at the video, it seems like it was pixelated. I’ve never seen such a pixelated video. Most cameras are better quality. Is that a super zoom? That would make it pixelated..
If that is the best quality of a security cam, it would be of no use.

Surveillance may appear what appears to be a white man but easily be what appears to be a light skinned Arab. How nice that the MSM jumps to convenient conclusions.

Of course, it could easily be a white hippie friend of William Ayers, you know, Barack Obama's buddy.

You know what would be really cool?

If one of these made-for-TV terrorism geniuses would kindly explain what caused the “smoke” and “gunpowder smell” described as issuing forth from the SUV by the street vendor and the cop who raised the alarm.

All we’ve heard so far is how the fertilizer was non-explosive, the propane tanks were sealed and the bomb was, overall, a dud (which of course means it was the work of a right-wing moron, in MSM-logic) — but, uh, what about the smoke and the smell that the media’s been headlining?

If something was cooking in the back of the SUV, wouldn’t something be eventually igniting?

So, it couldn’t be a muslim, because Islam is a race, doncha know. But white guys, especially older ones, are the opposition to the Regime!

Part of the reason why the critics of profiling say it's not foolproof is that Islam cuts across racial lines. I think profiling is a must against Islamic terrorism, but it obvious doesn't catch them all.

First of all, there are plenty of scumbags in this world who are willing to do ANYTHING for money, including kill innocent civilians with an IED here on American soil.

Second of all, just because a suspect may be Caucasian, it does not necessarily mean that person is NOT a Muslim terrorist, such as the recent case of Colleen LaRose:

Jihad Jane: U.S. Housewife Indicted for Terrorism
Wed, March 10, 2010

WASHINGTON — Federal agents say an American middle-aged white woman from Pennsylvania is the new face of terror.

Colleen LaRose, dubbed “Jihad Jane,” has been accused of plotting with Islamic terrorists overseas.

Not Your Typical Terrorist

LaRose is not your typical looking jihadist — a blonde, green eyed housewife from suburban Philadelphia. It has left her neighbors are scratching their heads ...

I thought the police had a name. They know who owns the vehicle and are trying to find him. Why don’t they publish the vehicle owner’s name and DMV/passport photo so the public can help run him down? The video is virtually useless.

Dumb question, but the video I saw at the link starts with the man standing on the sidewalk. Have they released the full video showing this man getting out of the SUV? If not, what could possibly be their reasoning for not doing so?

From what I hear the device was rather crude in construction and was rigged with a long standard rudimentary fuse that was lit.

This could account for the smoke and gunpowder smell.

He looks Middle Eastern to me. The shoulder shape, the posture, the pullover sweater (they love those) and the bald spot are the tells.

RACIST!!!!!!!

He also looks like he had nothing to do with the bomb. Not to mention that the Taliban took credit for the bomb in a message recorded and sent before the incident took place. The presenter seemed to assume that the bombing had been successful. That kind of clinches the source, doesn’t it?

Until law enforcement and/or the media explains how it determined the person in the video to be WHITE, I’ll be on the lookout for all suspicious people. This racial profiling of WHITES has to stop. I’m boycotting New York.

Not a dumb question - that’s what I thought too.

Now - my dumb question. I’m guessing that is the Nissan Pathfinder in the video that he is standing next to? What about those folks at the front of the Nissan? And the one in white - what is he/she stepping over at the end of the clip? I almost imagine something like a wire running from that pole to the car. (I don’t see any wire - but it looks like they are stepping over something like that. Makes a HIGH step - not a low long step like trying to clear a pile of poop or an open grate).

Weird.

Definitly something is in the way there. The folks coming at the camera veer around the post where the guy and bag are, and the dark-clothing person with the white-clothing person walks around as well.

I agree, though it was in an alleyway connecting the street the car was parked on with the next block over. If it’s not him, the innocent man should hear of or see the video and clear up the confusion, I’d think.

Everything is bigger in NYC. Their alleys we would call streets here.

Also, I now realize that when I take off my sweater, I am suspicious and furtive. I never knew that before. I look around too, to make sure no one is staring at my bra in case my tee shirt comes up with the sweater. Who knew how furtive I was?

They stop at nothing to call all perps white guys and if it turns out that the white guy didn’t do the actual crime, it is because of the white guy that the crime was done.

The media HOPES it’s a “white male in his 40s.” However, like you, I see nothing suspicious. I see guys take off outer shirts all the time if it’s a hot day and they have a short-sleeved one underneath. Wasn’t NYC hot and humid that day? Hard to tell much from this grainy video. Can’t tell much about skin color, but hair is dark.
