Some sleuths over at Reddit made the Drudge report this morning with this photo---


Pretty big backpack this guy is carrying, huh? In later photos, they spot this pair walking away toward the sight of the 2nd bombing, with one less backpack.

Kind of cool to follow their conversation over there.

The thing for me is whatever is highlighted in those photos does not look the same to me.

1. The top photo looks like a guy in a white with dark hair talking to a person in a blue outfit.
*i wonder if the guy to the left with an equally as big back back should also be labeled a suspect?"

2. The middle looks like a guy in a white hat, with sunglasses and lighter hair plus a mustache standing next to each other.

3. The bottom photo looks like it could be a match to the guy in the first photo but it is hard to say from that distance.

i would think those kind of components weren't readily available and less than accessible by most.


Nope easy to get. RDX is Nitric Acid (easy to get) and Hexamine (Get it it in camping shops as heating fuel) .

And if you want to turn it into C4 mix it into a plastisizer.

Most the "proffesional" grade explosives are really easy to dectect and are what Anti Bomb dogs and scanners are mostly trained or calibrated to pick up. Hence why terrorists like to use unorthadox explosives.



Luckly the boston Bombers did not use this or the deaths would be in the 10-100's

I apologise if this has already been mentioned but, to be honest, i am not reviewing all 130 odd pages to find the answer...........

Anyway, as to the bloke on top of the building that has attracted so much attention.....from what i can make out from the pictures he couldn't actually see the street from where he was pictured - his eyesight would have been nowhere near to ground level.

It looks a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time for that chap, what with all the attention it has garnered.

Guess we'll find out when the US starts carpet bombing Dublin. Oh and cheers for providing another example of them funding terrorism.

That image is most definitely interesting. The second image seems to show the same two men, but the guy in black has lost his bag, AND his jacket. The first image he's wearing a black jacket with a collar, the second he's wearing a black shirt with no collar.

It could be plausible that he went to put his bag down in place and covered it with his jacket, that would actually be a pretty good tactic - people are always told to look out for unattended BAGS, not unattended JACKETS. It's a small thing, but it's an easy way to hide what you're doing and hide what you just put down.

Someone walking in there and putting a bag down and walking out is more obvious than someone walking in there and putting their bag down, taking their jacket off, loitering for a couple of minutes, then moving away.

I'm not sure about that third image in the collage though. While there are not that many men of his height and build with dark clothing and a white baseball cap, it's not clear enough IMO to absolutely say that it's the same guy.

I did, however, think that there were two men. The gap of ten seconds made me think of this. I couldn't understand why they would have that gap. It's too long to be a mechanically or timed double explosion, but it's not long enough a gap to be a deliberate delay to hit responders, and it's too far away to be that. I at first thought it could be one man who set the timer on one and put it down, then walked or ran to the second point and set a timer on that... but the distance, with that crowd, would have been longer than ten seconds.

That led me to think they were either both placed with timers incorrectly set, or there were two perpetrators who split up with the intention to set them for a specific time.

I think they were manually timed and set, by two men who split up to find the locations ad-hoc on the day.

hey now, this is only speculation, no one is pointing fingers.
to me, everyone except the injured/dead are suspect.

yes, they/he could be pick-pockets, then again, they could be lookin' to pick up some tail, who's to say ??

as for why them, because the one guy fits the description given of the 'person of interest/being sought' and the other 3 appear to be familiar with one another.
not to mention the white hoodie/mexican/hispanic guy appearing in the later photos, alone and he doesn't even seem dazed (ear plugs?)

i only mentioned the pocket buldge because i didn't notice it in any of the pre-blast photos in which he appears.
and in this recent pic, his hand is clearly not inside the pocket.

also, in a previous post, someone pointed out the guy on the left, grey jacket with a black book-bag, was photographed without the book-bag, just before the blast.

yeah, i'm still not convinced the second bag noted was really a delivery system. it could easily have been placed there for momentary 'safe-keeping' while the owner's attention was elsewhere.

i cannot locate an after shot that isn't blurred to see any evidence in that area. besides, i'm not sure where the blast origin is at the second site ... i've heard/read more than one good theory on it and i don't know enough about it to offer one myself.

someone on another thread (linked earlier) highlighted an area in that same photo (2nd photo/1st link) at about the same level (horizontal) as the guys, only more to the right side of the photo.

there, you'll find a man in a blue jacket and blue ball cap (facing camera) engaging a young, small boy (also wearing a ball cap/back to camera) and it was suggested that boy was the Martin child
... and the man was giving him a stuffed animal that resembled a lamb.
what do you see ??

O/T but really ??

terrorist group ETA, here in Spain

i'm gonna have to break another habit
using that as an: Edit to Add abbreviation


wow, pretty soon the english language is gonna be ruled 'terroristic' to someone, somewhere ... will it ever end ?

back on topic, i seriously doubt the IRA would be so merciful -- especially given the original agreement, the info provided and the promise of privacy until participant death.

however, if retaliation is to be, heightened awareness is useless

I can already see the T-Shirt "I went to the Boston Marathon and all I got was this lousy prosthetic."
or " I went to the Boston Marathon and all I got was a bunch of shrapnel"
Some sicko will start the tshirt run.

looking at the 1st 2 pics, there is no way that's the same guy unless he changed shirts and got a haircut. hence, no wonder he doesn't have the backpack.

Supposedly it began in Mali as per Egyptian Officials. Not sure how much truth it holds.

Interestingly he also seemed to have moved away towards the outside.

i'd be more inclined to believe it IF they were making statements rather asking generalized questions. if i wanted to be a smartarse, i could easily answer each of them with the UN, NATO, CFR, G8 and probably a few others that encompass many countries, not just one.

besides, if the MB were to claim this tragedy, the political backlash would be immense and they know it.

Here are some images brought over from the Reddit threads. Remember however that these images don't necessarily mean anything.

What's supposed to be in the third picture?

Agreed and also that's a bit of a jump to say what is shown in the second is the same bag as the first photo.

This image is one of the most accurate and important as far as I can see. Going from other images that bag is resting on the exact spot where the dark explosion stain is seen on post-blast images of site one. There is a walk through in the fencing around the store front, and the scorch mark is on the ground directly in front of it, this image shows a bag (or something resembling a bag?) directly in that spot.

It would incredibly important to see any images before or after this one, and to know exactly when this photo was taken.

Edit: sorry, incorrect image referenced, correct one now added.

That seems to be the exact spot of the first blast at site one. If you check out some of the other images after the explosion, the scorch mark is seen in this precise spot. There is also an image of an investigator analysing the scorch mark in this spot.
