Did anyone pick out these two in any of the threads yesterday?


I don't believe so. They had a different guy with a white cap worn forwards, I never saw a single pic of these guys, though.

If Reddit and the New York Post couldn't identify the bombers, what makes us think the FBI picked out the right guys?

Madame Ovary: Nina_Hartley's_Ass: The All-Powerful Atheismo: Can't watch TV right now... WHY do they say these guys are suspects?

white cap dropped a bag

He was on the phone in one of the pictures. The FBI can trace calls at that time/location, right? Anybody?


They can pull information from cell phone towers, but think of Boston on a regular day let alone during the marathon. It's also possible that he wasn't actually using the phone, just holding it up and setting down his bag to make it look like he had to take a call.

Maybe 4chan can redeem itself by finding these guys in one of the much clearer pictures, rather than these low-definition CCTV videos.

LarryDan43: atomicmask: somedude210: atomicmask: somedude210: atomicmask: Black hair

Tan faces

middle eastern facial features

I don't think you're looking at the same pics. Black hat looks a little tan. white hat is a pasty white goofy college student.

He is not white goofy college student, he has a arab looking nose. Both are clearly semites of some sort. Both clearly middle eastern, light skinned, but middle eastern.

I'm sorry, but how does this guy look middle eastern? I think your prejudices are getting the best of you, my friend

Light tan face, longer/downward turned nose, angular jaw....IRANIAN

light tan face, angular down turned nose, angular jaw, IRANIAN

Backwards cap indicates romonian or durstian.


Both tribes are located in Douchebagistan.
 
2013-04-18 05:52:22 PM  

serial_crusher: Let the speculation begin!
Suspect #2 (white hat)'s facial expression has "generic crazy teenager, politically unaffiliated" written all over it.  #1 might have a political agenda and be using him though.

So, these are supposedly the guys who dropped the bombs that blew up... who dropped the ones that didn't?


Black Hat is the dominant, the true sociopath. White Hat is the submissive partner. He craves the attention and acceptance of Black Hat, and is under his sway. He had no dog in this fight other than the one Black Hat gave him.

/pure speculation
//of course
///unless I'm right

Also, all the "unexploded bombs" were backpacks and bags dropped in the chaos and treated as dangerous. There were only two asplodey bags.

somedude210: Coach_J: The guy with the white hat on backwards does not IMO look like your run of the mill white kid...he looks Middle Eastern/Arab/Eastern European to me.

Now, anyone who draws conclusions about the other guy is a nutter...you can't tell jackshiat from those photos.

And BTW, #1 (if he is the bomber) is an idiot...try disguising yourself a bit better like #2 dumbass.  Looks like he wants to get caught.

really? he looks middle eastern? He's whiter than I am. And I'm farking IRIsh


iat's not the skin tone, but the facial features IMO are more telling.

Look, I'm a total whitey from the Midwest so I'm clearly no expert, but I live in SE Michigan and the immigrant population from that part of the world is very well represented here and skin tone isn't consistent, but the side view of the bro-geek with the hat on backwards looks very much from that part of the world.

Hey, I'll admit I believe that if they didn't do it directly they sure as hell had something to do with it.This isn't from the NY Post or CNN.  This is the FBI.


Well, as the FBI themselves have had "something to do" with most of the "attempted (but foiled) terror attacks" that have taken place on US soil over the past 10 years, you may have a point.

To you, it's blurry, and could be a white guy and a brown guy. That's because you're not a journalist.

To CNN, it's "FBI PANDEMONIUM - POSSIBLE TAMIL TIGER MIGHT HAVE ESTABLISHED RELATIONSHIPS WITH IRISH REPUBLICAN ARMY OPERATIVE".

I'm hoping they'll turn out to be furries so I can feel vindicated about my anti-furry hate.  They don't look comfortable in those clothes, which leads me to suspect that they might feel more inclined to wear fur suits.  You just know those weirdos are going to come after us norms any day now.

I never said a word about who the suspects might be until today. If you look at those pictures and can't see that they're not pasty white dudes, you need an eye exam. They're clearly middle eastern.


I'd bet money on these guys being middle eastern or of middle eastern descent.

Of course the problem here, and by problem I mean "intentional deceit" is that you're attempting to convince us that the people doing 1 and the people doing 2 are the same.
 
2013-04-18 05:53:46 PM  
For some reason, I was hoping these guys were home-grown anomalies. But - fuzzy as the pics may be - they look a little...not-white to me. As security and surveillance in the U.S. and abroad has improved, Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations are encouraging followers to break off on their own and kinda crowd-source terrorism. If these guys turn out to be Middle Eastern, they could very well be following that advice. which would also explain why there's no claims of responsibility yet. Lone wolves don't necessarily have PR, and the organizations that spawned them (Al Qaeda, etc) may not even know it was one of their followers.

That's the thing.  Hopefully they're dumb enough to believe they could get away with bombing one of the most photographed places in the world on Monday, and don't have Act II already planned.

There has been one or two people here planting the idea "Army of God" or "Joel's Army" or some other right wing Christian Identity movement group is behind this.

violentsalvation: I hope they are caught before they bomb again.


i'm wondering if they had an escape plan.  or if they even planned what they were gonna do after this bombing....they had to know they'd be the center of a massive coordinated manhunt.  with that much in the way of resources heading their way they had to have some sort of plan to avoid capture and possibly go do...what?  move to their next target?  flee the country?

if these guys are single issue nut jobs, it should be fairly easy to catch them tho.  most crazies don't plan much beyond the bombing.  escape tends to not occur to them so they don't cover their tracks.

atomicmask: somedude210: atomicmask: Black hair

Tan faces

middle eastern facial features

I don't think you're looking at the same pics. Black hat looks a little tan. white hat is a pasty white goofy college student.

He is not white goofy college student, he has a arab looking nose. Both are clearly semites of some sort. Both clearly middle eastern, light skinned, but middle eastern.


Or Italian.  He looks a lot like any of the thousands of light-skinned, male college students around here.
The first-guy is dark-skinned.  Beyond that, you can't tell what his ethnic background really is without having a clearer view of his facial features.
Of course, you could be right, but your jumping to the conclusion of ZOMG ARABS!!1! is a bit misguided if you're going to base it off what can be seen in the photos.
