The FBI just released images of two men sought in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Field Office Richard DesLauriers said at the time “these are the people of interest to the FBI.”

They appeared to be together and the second suspect, wearing the white baseball cap, placed a backpack in front of the Forum Restaurant bombing site, according to Des Lauriers – but the FBI did not release that video.

“We will continue to work on developing additional images,” DesLauriers said. “These images should be the only ones the public should use to assist us,” he stressed, saying other images making the viral rounds would only “create undue work for vital law enforcement resources.”

“We know the public will play a critical role of identifying these individuals,” the agent continued.

“We consider them to be armed and extremely dangerous. Do not take any action on your own — if you see these men, contact law enforcement.”

Still, he said, “there’s no imminent danger that we’re aware of now” in regard to a follow-up attack.

See all of the images at the FBI’s website.

I told a colleague at work when these grainy pics were first made available to the public, 'They're from the M E, Turkey or 1 of the crummy war-torn Southern Russian countries.

The media, with their technology and supposed JOB to provide lucid, fact-filled information calling 1 of the 2 POS 'White' - it's beyond reason.

Whew! Guess it wasn't white Hispanics after all. Maybe it was Pizarro.

Here's a link that shows a white and yellow bag. There is a video out there somewhere that shows the explosion. The video that this story links to is about some other suspicious person but, there is a person in the background that looks a little like one of these guys.

I am sorry,no offense, but there are pictures that show the bag still there, unexploded, after the bombing.

This is about as convincing as the paper bag that supposedly held the bomb that somehow did not blow up when the bomb did. These guys are watching the marathon and giving surveillance a clear view of themselves. The one in back looks like he has been walking that route regularly. They aren't even looking down to conceal their faces.

Definitely jihadis. Middle-easterners. White boys from the East. Maybe local, maybe not. A cell operation for sure.

We'll get them now. I mean we, the good guys. No place to run (although they might try the nearest faculty lounge). Call Wolfe Blitzer. Break it to him gently. It wasn't a right wing atrocity. It was an atrocity of the type that we have grown all too familiar with. Allah. Mohammed. Kill the Jews. Etc., etc., etc.

But then, the Obama Media knew this all along. And YET they tried to play it as something else. Axelrod. Finestein. The scum over at Salon. Leftist America fell to its knees and prayed that this was a "conservative white" act of terror. CNN, MSNBC, and assorted others, all came straight out of the chute speculating that ANYONE other than the presumed suspects might be responsible for the atrocity.

But how stupid do they think we are? Have there been ANY civilian-targeting "right wing" terrorist attacks since McVeigh or Rudolph? (both of whom are both highly anomalous and way pre-9/11.) No.

This assault had al-Qaeda (splinter or otherwise) written all over it from the very beginning.

Faux news stated they look white. They look like middle east student visa types to me.

I like to profile every Marine Corp day.

Wasn't there a video showing one of the bombs explode next to a mailbox, outside the barricade on the curb in what looked like an orange bag?

I found this to be very interesting:

http://www.infowars.com/fbi-ignores-men-with-backpacks-at-scene-of-boston-bombings/

Are the Boston Police and the FBI reluctant to acknowledge there was private security on the scene before the bombing went down? Why? I think an explanation is in order.

What are you suggesting, sir? And frankly your calf is not that tantalizing.

The guy walking behind them with the shopping bag looks like he is carrying something heavier than the two of them.

CNN (having learned nothing from previous multiple, erroneous speculations) now has "experts" (aka Leftist dim wits) alleging that the persons of interest may be military personnel -- this claim is being made 'cause the "expert" figures the two men are too casual in carrying their pressure cooker bombs...He's claiming they gotta have had lots of experience doing this...Good Grief.

Sounds like CNN alright. They had their hopes so high.

To take CNN's "expert's" suppositions seriously, one would have to believe that U.S. military personnel routinely carry about with them IED's in backpacks, used to murder unsuspecting civilians. Omg. Only in a John Kerry or Obana fantasy world. Yet CNN "experts" (like Kerry and Obama) are utterly oblivious of the slanderous nature of their suppositions.

YES! This is like being in some kind of surreal fantasy that only a film-maker - or a government that that believes it can control reality - can create. Up is down and down is up and there is no truth.
