Skip to comments.Saudi national no longer ‘person of interest’ in Boston bombings, no other suspects

The Saudi national injured during the bomb attacks at the Boston Marathon Monday has been cleared and is no longer even a person of interest, intelligence officials told lawmakers Tuesday.
"This was a soft target. It was not a target that was able to be totally protected," he said. "This particular incident is going to cause the administration and Congress to evaluate our overall security programs around the country, particularly for major events. We can't leave it just to the communities that host these events to provide the security."

With recent discovery of remains of “high pressure cookers” that were used as bombs, blaming the TEA party and all things conservative is sure starting to get OLD real fast!
This particular incident is going to cause the administration and Congress to evaluate our overall security programs around the country, particularly for major events. We can’t leave it just to the communities that host these events to provide the security.”
Sorry, but I’m not sure we can “leave it to” our government to provide us with the TRUTH, either.
Wow! Great work!
Re ‘baby stroller’:
Plausible, but I have yet to read a comment observing the guy in the white hat that has a white towel over his right shoulder and what appears to be a baby’s being cradled in his arm on that shoulder.
Just an observation...
Dude in puffy coat also appears to be wearing gloves..
Gee, didn’t Homeland Insecurity come out and say that one should be suspicious of people wearing heavy coats in warm weather?
I'm fascinated with this thread!!!!!
I don't think he's obscuring the view from the fellow in the red jacket who seems interested in what that hunched person is doing.
Any thoughts on the guy in the red shirt? Looks like he’s sporting an Islamic style beard to me.
In your middle photo (blue AND green outlines), the “Gray Hoodie” person is ChineseGlasses girl, since GrayHoodieSaudi has stepped away.
Notice ChineseGlasses girl’s hair is smooth, while GrayHoodieSaudi’s hair is frizzy/puffy.
Otherwise, those 2 could be confused b/c they’re both light gray.
You know, if they are NOT the bombers, and there really was a baby in that stroller, they are very close to the site of the blast, and a baby would presumably have been hurt. Now, babies being hurt usually makes the news. Small victims make good headlines, but the youngest victim I’ve heard of is the 8 year old boy who was very, very close in one picture I saw.
Do you think the Feds will pay us for all this legwork?
Under Obamatollah, they’d probably pay us to STOP TRYING to solve this bombing.
Have you seen this site?
I heard briefly on FNC or the radio (sorry, don’t recall which) is that the youngest victim was 2 and the oldest 71 - only heard it once or twice - no other mention of it that I’ve heard (though I haven’t been listening/watching 24/7).
Later news reports have said that the devices were set down not placed in trash cans
I have often wondered why terrorists don’t go after more soft targets in the US. If there was a string of bombings at malls, high school sporting events, day care centers, busy street corners, etc., it would tie this country into knots.
Good work and analysis!
The lady in green (looks very young - almost like a teen) is in your picture in post #58 - guy w stroller and puffy coast is in that one but not the one in #73.
With your eagle eye you’ve probably already noticed this - The blonde guy in the yellow long-sleeved T-shirt and the dark-haired woman in front of him w sunglasses and a purplish shirt are in both pictures (lower right) - about the same location.
Look behind this guy in the #58 picture - it looks like the stroller (it’s the same location as the stroller in post #73, but different angle).
Any idea the time difference between the 2 pictures?
