I tried posting this on the AJ site, but they keep deleting the post. No idea why.
There are many more of those guys with tan and black walking around. Weird. All standing next to some crazy looking black SUV

Why does this have to mean that the bomb was IN the bag?
What if the bag is tattered because it was hit BY the bomb, NOT because it was carrying it.
Also, wouldn't a fabric bag containing a large bomb disintegrate into much smaller pieces and be scattered everywhere. If a bag indeed held the bomb, it is most probably confetti by now.

O.k., I went through the pictures and based off the actual exploded backpack remains the only other back that seems to match that in these pics is the backpack with the tall, white male with red shirt and fleece. The gray strap on the side just doesn't seem to match any of the other backpacks of the suspects. That seems to be pretty conclusive unless, of course, that guy still had his backpack after the bombing--in which we would need a recording/photo of that.
What strikes me as odd is the way he's handling the bag. Not so much that he isn't wearing it on his back, as that is pretty normal, but just his hand position and where he has the strap placed around his arm. It seems unnatural and somewhat forced--like he isn't quite comfortable with the backpack--or their is something in it, in which he has to hold it a certain way. Another thing is his expression--it is very serene and disinterested--like he's head isn't really at the event.
And then there is the unkempt appearance. Beard growth seems scruffy and not really maintained---just like it had been grown out without care. He looks demonstrably tired, maybe even sick. His clothing choice seems a bit relaxed, maybe even sloppy? His red shirt almost seems to drag off him uncomfortably and unflatteringly--again the signs of a man not quite "at the game", so to speak.
Just my take...but of course the evidence is still out there.edit on 17-4-2013 by ForwardDrift because: (no reason given)edit on 17-4-2013 by ForwardDrift because: (no reason given)
