Yossef Bodansky, the author whose #1 New York Times bestseller Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America first introduced American readers to al Qaeda's evil mastermind prior to 9/11, returns to sound an important alert. In this authoritative look at the roots of modern terrorism, Bodansky pinpoints the troubled region of Chechnya as a dangerous and little-understood crucible of terror in the struggle between East and West. Drawing on mountains of previously unseen intelligence from Islamist movements and other military and intelligence sources from throughout the Middle East, Russia, and Central Asia, Chechen Jihad offers an intimate and startling portrait of the jihadist movement that is astonishing in its detail and chilling in its implications—including new insights into the Chechen jihadists' secret role in fighting against U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. An authoritative work of reportage and analysis, Chechen Jihad also points to a new way forward in the struggle to face down the challenges of international Islamist terrorism.

I am seeing a picture in the mainstream now that is showing a ''white hat'' guy and a ''black hat'' guy and they are not the same suspicious guys in the Alex Jones photos. The new white hat/black hat photo shows some goofball guys. They are the patsies. They are covering up the real suspicious operative guys in the AJ photos.
LoLoL OMG - so the "suspicious operative guys" that Alex conveniently cropped to hide the fact they had their backpacks AFTER the bombs had gone off are the real bombers, and the ones the FBI have released pics of, who are right now involved in a massive fire fight in Boston while trying to avoid apprehension, during which they've been using home made bombs that give off lots of smoke like the marathon bombs - they're patsies.
Okay, so how have "they" (the evil gob'ment) made them risk their lives shooting at cops live on TV then?
The reason the pics released by the FBI are not the same ones shown by Alex Jones is because Alex jones is a moron.edit on 19-4-2013 by Power_Semi because: (no reason given)

From the link in the OP, I find this post that was imaged to be particularly interesting. Look for a raid to ensue tomorrow, if that occurs and the suspect is a young guy in his late teens early 20's along with all of the other descriptors stated in this Anonymous Post...well...that would be awfully coincidental wouldn't it?

It would appear that despite the efforts of 4chan and whoever else, none of the hacked photos were of the actual suspects...

Listening to our local news (behind info network) with their worried looks on their faces just pisses me off!
Telling everyone in Boston to stay inside, not to go to work or school, to lay hunkered down DEFENSIVELY cowering under their beds, in fear and helplessness.
No transportation because one man is being hunted.
If everyone was armed, if the man with the hijacked Mercedes had been armed... If the neighborhood that saw the car and the suspicious activity had been armed, this could have been nipped in the bud.
This to me is making AMERICANS out to be total helpless and scared weenies!

Forgive me if this has already been posted, I searched but couldn't find anything.
The father of the Boston Bombing suspects believe his kids were "set up by secret services" and I figured it relevant to the forum.
‘‘In my opinion, my children were set up by the secret services because they are practising Muslims,’’ Anzor Tsarnaev told the Interfax news agency on Friday from the North Caucasus Russian city of Makhachkala.

I think it's time for the innocent people in the photos sue the outlets that have portrayed them as criminals.

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)
You had me until you started profiling his general appearance in the last paragraph.
So anyone that is scruffy is dangerous to you? As well as the tired and sick? People who dress poorly and/or sloppily also?
I'm afraid of you, if you think everyone that doesn't fit into your idea of perfection is suspect. You are the type I do not want profiling for any agency. I mean, hell, if I don't shave on the weekend and my pregnant wife sends me out at 3 a.m. to pick up ice cream at wal-mart and I wear sweats ... you'd have me harassed because I don't look like Johnny Depp in an Armani suit with a fresh shave and finely tended hair. Some people are just awkward. Some people don't like to shave. Some people have comfy clothes that aren't fine dining compatible. Some people don't get enough rest. Some people fall ill. Doesn't mean those people are dangerous.
Just making a point ... stereotyping is bad. Stick with the stuff you started with; possible disinterest in the event (maybe dragged there by a friend, or being supportive to a friend despite his not caring about it at all), the uncomfortable way he holds the bag (maybe he is holding it for someone, like a friend, and really didn't want to), possible disgruntled demeanor (though he could have a headache/light sensitivity), backpack similarity (though there has been multiple ones in this thread that 'could' match ... the only ones who really know which is the real one used, and its discerning features are the authorities who have it in their possession).
It is good that everyone is thinking, it could even be helpful to 'crowdsource' the solution for authorities (more eyes and minds might see something someone else hasn't); but let's remember innocent until proven guilty, and not nit-pick at different life choices (even being scruffy is a choice you have the freedom to choose in this country), but examine things with an open mind, and try to be unbiased from your personal preferences of life choices. Your choice of appearances would put most homeless or poor as suspects with that profiling.
I'll offer this; does the backpack look too 'new' in comparison to the rest of his attire? (if so, it is possible to have a new backpack, and old clothes; though unlikely)
