It’s awful how divided this country has become. Half the country is sweating bullets and hoping the suspect will be a certain color.

LOL!!

very concerning if the perp gets away because the Feds leaked this news! Did someone do it on purpose to help the dude get away? Could also signal a riff between the local cops and the Feds.

If John King is afraid to say more than "dark skinned," out of fear that divulging more information might be "inflammatory," then I think one could fairly deduce that the additional descriptive information is "middle-eastern looking."

If the suspect were just an American with a dark tan, or an African American, I think there would be little reason to fear that reporting this would be "inflammatory."

All local stations here in Boston are reporting no arrest but there are about a hundred people outside the federal court house waiting for the guy to be brought in. There’s supposed to be a presser here @5pm and we were told they would release the name at that time.

I have a feeling they have the perp in custody, and have for quite some time... but Obama needs to make a call to Saudi Arabia before there can be an official “arrest”.

I suppose if Obama was going to declare him an enemy combatant and ship him off to Gitmo it might not be technically termed an “arrest”.

Fat chance of that though.

Leave it to the media to screw up pretty much everything their hands touch.

Yep. The best info came out early on from the local law enforcement. It is the internet and social media sleuths who don't want to be Benghazied who have been doing all the work.

Update - there are many conflicting reports. It’s possible that:

A. A suspect has been identified

B. A suspect is in custody

C. A suspect has been arrested

D. None of the above

Some of the news agencies (AP, Fox, etc.) are still claiming an arrest has been made. Dept of Homeland Security and Boston PD are saying no arrest has been made. If the latter, that doesn’t eliminate A or B above. Will update when there’s more info

The Saudi suspect was a non-issue after Kerry met with some Saudi big wig in a closed-to-the-press meeting yesterday. But we’re not supposed to figure that out since we all just fell off the turnip truck.

The bad news for the radical left A.K.A “the left” is that he appears not to be a white Tea Party Activist like they were Praying to their Messiah to deliver. The Good News is that some liberal university just identified the newest member of the faculty.

Yes. I saw that too.

But it may be that the initial arrest be on “unrelated” charges, like cell phone theft or overstaying an expired student visa.

BTTT!! Bingo..this sounds like a massive intelligence failure! The guy and his cell are probably getting on a plane right now or escaping. thanks federal leakers and media shills!!

This is what happens when you let the Muslim Brotherhood into positions of power in our intelligence and administration apparatus.

ABC news interrupted Rush's broadcast where they said that an arrest is imminent. Then they said an arrest may or may not be imminent. They must be careful not to jump to conclusions(LMFAO). No doubt the Boston Marathon perp is not the ethnicity the State Run Media and the White Hut were hoping for.....So now, ABC changed to the story of the envelopes full of whatever being sent to congresscritters.



Now Rush is back on........Superb reporting I must say /s

Makes sense that the perp would be on his cellphone as detonation occurs, although no one knew if timer was used or not. Tracing cell traffic during detonation time, well.. The perp can’t hide from that. Idiotic to use a cellphone bomb. Stupid.

The local police would not necessarily be the arresting agency. This is now a Federal matter with the FBI running the investigation. They might keep the BPD out of the loop.

Or could be they brought in a dark skinned muslin and DoJ said wrong skin color - go find somebody else. Seriously they may be just being more precise and the person is a person of interest or suspect but has not been foprmerly arrested or charged yet. All sorts of possibilities.

However if they are still looking for the guy why even divulge anything to the media?

“”Remember how the media spread any and all rumors during Katrina?””

Ha... yeah... cops shooting unarmed citizens.

More like gangbangers shooting at rescue personel. But we didn’t hear anything about that, oh no, shhhh nooo. No looting rapists and teens shooting at responders, no. Only bad bad cops and Bush playing a guitar. The minorities were starving and the white cops were drowning them.

To this day you’ll still see someone ‘suffering’ still playing that katrina card as long as they can ride it out.
