FWIW, NBC’s Pete Williams, citing US Attorney’s office in Boston, says no arrest made.

If they fingered him and have not arrested him, they just alerted him to flee or eat a shotgun barrel.

Sounds like the video of him dropping the bag was at the second bomb site.

Yeah, I’m guessing it had to be somebody who was already on a watch list.

Thanks! Just got home from a quick errand. rush saying CNN saying it is a ‘dark skinned’ male. So much for the media’s ‘tea party’, ‘right wing’ meme. Glad they have caught him. hope they fry him.

Remember this....

Richard A. Jewell (December 17, 1962 – August 29, 2007) was an American police officer who, while working as a security guard for Piedmont College,[1] became known in connection with the Centennial Olympic Park bombing at the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.

Discovering a pipe bomb on the park grounds, Jewell alerted police and helped to evacuate the area before the bomb exploded, saving many people from injury or death. Initially hailed by the media as a hero, Jewell was later considered a suspect. Jewell’s case is considered an example of the damage that can be done by reporting based on unreliable or incomplete information.

The joke is on us. Waco, Ruby Ridge, Olympic Bombing, Anthrax attack, DC Beltway Snipers, OKC, Fast and Furious, Benghazi....

....the government has a very determined and lax attitude for mucking things up and LYING to the American people.

Reagan was talking about the Commies when he said, "Trust but verify".

Never did I think it would pertain to our own .gov and MSM domestic enemies.

Hmmm. Could it be Obama's son (if he had a son)?

But seriously, if this does turn out to be a "domestic" terror incident, could we perhaps be looking at something like the DC sniper and his young cohort?

Both of whom I believe had some sympathies with Islamicists, although the MSM did its best to de-emphasize that aspect.

Exactly what I have been thinking and posting. 3 2 1 before RATS are on TV saying we had him on our radar but the evil Republican sequester cut LEO’s assets

If they’ve already made an arrest based on this footage, does this suggest that the perp is someone who was already on their radar for previous activities or affiliations? How can they go so quickly from “a dark skinned man” to a specific man?

My suspicion is that although they said "there are no suspect", they had a possible suspect (from witnesses and photo evidence submitted). I also have suspicion that the Lord and Taylor video evidence is compromising of said suspect (the missing piece in a puzzle that ties someone specifically to THE bag at the scene of the crime).

Better be able to make the case before going forward with "witnesses suspect it was this guy...".
