The mob-handed mercenaries were in plain sight all right. They were all over the immediate area of the bombers, before; during; and after the bombings.

It was quite bizarre at last night's press conference how the FBI guy repeatedly and insistently and emphatically demanded that the press and the public do not look at any photographs other than the carefully cropped and redacted ones that have been issued by the government. The obedient media flacks simply obeyed the gumment instruction blindly.

The Tamerlan Tsarnaev youtube account has been closed already, though whether that means anything about guilt is highly questionable.

Though the choice of Tamerlan (better known in the west as Timur or Tamburlaine), the famous Turkic emperor and military genius, as a moniker is interesting.

Closing in on someone and concerned that to much enthusiasm is being excercised. Warning of plain clothes presence blue on blue danger.

Securing perimeter !

And why they killed the policeman and robbed the store.
I understood from the Beeb this morning that the MIT campus policeman had ID'd them - perhaps he mistakenly tried to apprehend them and paid with his life?

The suspect still at large is going to find it tough to stay on the run especially now that everyone in the country now knows more-or-less what he looks like. I'm surprised the NRA have descended en-masse to the city to join the hunt.

The media had already screwed-up big time with photos. You obviously didn't see the NY Post pictures they published on the frong page of 2 different men than the real suspects, and missed the armchair picture-sleuthing being done that was casting suspicion on persons the FBI weren't interested in. In case you didn't catch this, the FBI had an eyewitness in Jeff Bauman, the man you saw in the wheelchair pictures with both his lower legs blown off. He saw the guy face to face...
Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.

Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. ... He lost both legs below the knee. "He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me'," Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview. ...

While still in intensive care, Jeff Bauman gave the FBI a description of the man he saw, his brother said. Bauman’s information helped investigators narrow down whom to look for in hours of video of the attack, he said.
So perhaps the FBI had a very good reason to want people to look at the pictures they issued, and not wild goose chase pictures where the clothes and description given by Mr. Bauman didn't match.

Sorry, I don't think I'm going to sign on to the conspiracy theory you're trying to suggest because if you'd done just a little homework you'd find that things aren't as "bizarre" as you think. Unless that is your agenda. Nah, couldn't be

Suspected bombers facebook page is still up and in a world first, read comments from the public to a suspect on the run...

Cops r/t just said that "He's posting online saying he'll kill you all just like you killed his brother".

Thanks for the link - haven't seen that photo in any of the US coverage. Looking at it again, the figure silhouetted by the doorway - he's surrounded by fleeing people - looks a lot like Suspect 1 at least he has similar dark baseball cap & jacket with light trousers.
No problem. The second figure next to the woman in the pink jacket does look like a fit. The only thing going against that ident is the lack of white T-shirt.

Images showing 'Suspect 1' wearing white t-shirt under jacket.

FBI ? Photos

500N wrote,

Isn't that a "7" on both the white caps ?
Hard to tell. Some media are suggesting a number 3.

There appears to be a number - possible a '7' - on the side of the hat. Some on Reddit suggested that it could be a Polo Ralph Lauren Hat - the markings are similar to one that's available online for around $30 - but that hat only comes with the number '3' on the side.

Note the Video may not be of the bomber.

Boston police have relayed on the police scanner "he is posting online, I will kill you all like you killed my brother"

This could be what they are referring too, what looks like his tw**ter page, but it could be fake.

His page lists "World view - Islam" and his "Personal priority - Career and money".

Going out on a limb here, but I don't think the career and money thing is going to work out for him.

Two and a half minutes later the bag exploded - destroying Jeff's legs

Terrible situation, but had someone "dropped a bag at my feet" in that situation, I may have reacted a little different, than, well, "not reacting"

Terrible for the victim nevertheless !

Boys' uncle interview being broadcast on the Beeb. The family appears to have been in the US since 2001. The brothers would have been aged 14 and 7 then. The uncle states that he last saw the younger brother (still at large) in 2005/6 (so aged about 11/12) when he was still "a nice, quiet boy".

Would seem they were radicalized in the US.

10 min ago: The police are surrounding a house in Watertown, and have an armoured car there. They have asked the media not to publish the exact location.

We'd all like to think we would. But if, like him, you're 27 years old and watching for your girlfriend to finish a 26 mile, hours-long race, are you really going to? Most people near the finish have positioned themselves there to watch-for and photograph runners they know, so that's where their attention is and thoughts are.

Hopefully he'll take comfort in having helped identify the scum who did this, and not torment himself with thoughts of "If I had only...". 2 minutes, not much tiime when you consider the crowd, noise, all the things that would have had to happen in order to have made any difference...

Have they switched that scanner link off now? Mine seems to have lost connection - very compelling listening that is

Just goes to show, you can take the Chechen out of Chechnya - but you can never take the terrorist out of Muslim Chechens. They are vile, twisted, conscienceless murderers, from birth.

If he's been tweeting with a mobile device then they will have a pretty accurate fix on his position.
