So, Who Are They? On Release of Marathon Suspect Pics, Boston Media Says, “Don’t Stereotype” (Not Said of White Males)

By Debbie Schlussel

There’s a reason I generally refer to the FBI as Famous But Incompetent. It is. Both. And, now, there is the latest set of photos. The FBI is releasing these photos and video of two guys in baseball hats who are now apparently suspects, but it won’t release other video footage that allegedly shows the conduct of the two, with the one in the white baseball hat apparently planting the backpack with the explosives that killed three and maimed so many at the Boston Marathon, Monday. That’s, at least, according to FBI Boston Special Agent in Charge Richard Deslauriers. We’ll see. So, who are they? And if they did it, why? This already debunks Janet Napolitano’s claim that this was a “lone wolf” operation. In fact, we know–if these are the guys–that there are two wolves, at least. Are they Muslims? They sure look too young to be Tea Partiers, despite what the media and lefties are wishing for. What do you think?

Reader Lisa of the Boston area says this:

Local news is mentioning over and over to be careful to not ‘stereotype”….oh really? What are the odds that these people are white American? Unless they are dopey college kids that were approached by terrorists and offered a huge sum of money to drop the backpack……and sorry, one of the guys doesn’t look wWhite to me.

Hmmmmm. Interesting. The media usually doesn’t tell people “not to stereotype” White males, so perhaps one of these guys is something other than that, such as the people who come her over the Mexican border who are referred to as “OTM” – Other Than Mexican.

One of ’em looks White to me–the one in the white baseball hat, but it’s nearly impossible to tell from the very grainy pics much about them and their facial features, etc. Again, we’ll see.

“One of ‘em looks White to me”

He certainly seems to have lighter skin but I don’t think he’s white. Maybe its just the fact that I grew up in an Indian American neighborhood, but when I first saw the photo/video, I immediately thought he looked like a North Indian / Pakistani American guy (many of whom are light skinned enough to pass for regular white guys). That, coupled with the memory of Faisal Shahzad’s failed attack on Times Square, and I’m putting money on him being of South Asian decent.

P: I’m not saying it’s not a Muslim or anything like that. Not by any means. We don’t know yet b/c it’s so hard to tell, given the pics and their poor quality. And you make good points. DS

Even the ONE incident Libtards looooooove to reference (Oklahoma City Bombing 1995) has a Moooooslim reference to it. No matter how many people don’t know the truth (and many people don’t. When it comes to Jihad, most Americans are Out To Lunch) doesn’t make the fact that Iranian Hussain al-Hussainy* had a hand in the Oklahoma City Bombing less true.

Tim McVeigh also went to take a dirt-nap faster than any one in America, too. Even before I knew a bit about Jihad, I always found that weird because it take 25 years PLUS for the death penalty to kick in. It seemed odd to me and now I know why.

I’m being patient. The odds are in my favour. It’s just like DS says…This.Is.Islam.

Also, lies are reigning these days, especially when tied to Obama-Putin. It’s sad to see the USA so comfortable with constant lies. I never thought it would be like this. Obama=Putin’s reign has been all about lies and duplicity. One day it will be the greatest story never told (finally told!).

*BTW, last time Hussain al-Hussainy made the news, he was a drunken’ Hobo in Quincy Mass a few years back. Not a word has been said about Hussainy since then. I find that scary.

There are lot of light skinned Arabs than can pass for a European.

Its still too early to say who the suspects are since the details haven’t been released but with the media warning about “stereotyping” its a good bet they aren’t are Wiccan.

And Christian Arabs have carried out numerous terrorist attacks on behalf of Islam.

NormanF on April 18, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Diane Sawyer tonight said “white”..’course we know her agenda.

Jesse on April 18, 2013 at 7:15 pm

“Really, this time we got ’em. Really. Ya’ gotta believe these are the guys. Those other guy, meh, they’re not the bombers. And that Saudi guy with the family ties to others on terrorist lists worldwide, nevermind, just forget what we said and you saw. He’s gonna go home ’cause he’s just sick. Needs better medical care. We had scheduled to deport him before he was a person of interest.” Keystone Kops in overdrive!

JeffT on April 18, 2013 at 7:17 pm

Takes 5 mins to find facial rec match to jihadi parental units that match, so the FBI can and have already loooong ago done so. Why the game playing? To provoke what they do next? They already skipped town. They always do. Changed appearances too, as FBI watched them “flee to Missouri in the Sudan” or to South Africa, as the others did? Course we have these days – wigs, and skin dyes etc. All that being said, Grover-neo-kinsmen are smart enough to mimic and confuse. T-party is merely band wagon du jour to front all kinds of kook activities. Finally, we must be prepared to buy into an eventual official “non-terror” story, suddenly discovering who had qualifying running times around the 4 hour mark, and we are told some runner was cheating on spouse etc. etc.etc. and this was payback time for the spouse and the lover cheering in the spectator stand and collateral damage be damned.

No matter who they are, it’s George Bush’s fault!

Concerned Citizen on April 18, 2013 at 7:21 pm

White hat and no sunglasses? Are they identifying suspects by the backpacks? I’m watching the video loop on CNN and the young women following them in a lime-yellow colored pullover had a big backpack too. Can a female be involved?

I heard at some point that there were more than 2 bombs. What’s the truth? Did they use decoys?

I don’t know much but there were more than 2 people involved in this. It’s a no-brainer.

Rick on April 18, 2013 at 7:25 pm

    Rick, I just watched the video again and you’re right! That woman in the lime/yellow nylon jacket is also carrying a big backpack and she is following the two men the whole time. She seems to be looking down, also. Maybe at her phone?

    Carol on April 18, 2013 at 9:50 pm

    Ralph, they both look dark-skinned to me, especially the one in the dark hat.

    Carol on April 18, 2013 at 9:53 pm

The Ricin guy turned out to be white, a LIBERAL. Boston? My first guess would be Muslims. Second choice would be an organized political group, not necessarily right wing. It could be right wingers, but, I don’t think it is. They usually go after the government directly, or go after some racial group or event. I notice that other than some justified bitching about gun control and immigration, the right has been pretty calm and quiet lately. Almost all of the recent shootings and threats of violence have been done by left leaning folks. You can tell people are either nuts or have their head up their asses by trying to make a political or racial issue out of this instead of just wanting to catch the bastards that did it. The media is acting all schizo over this, too, either spreading bullshit or not doing stories that don’t fit their agendas. I notice that nobody but the fringe bloggers are going near the subject of what they are doing with that Saudi punk. We have Big Sis and other not even answering congressmen’s questions. And, if the people who did it are white, who says they aren’t Muslims? Most people aren’t using their brains. I’ve heard other bullshitters saying that it couldn’t be a Muslim terror attack, because the devices weren’t “sophisticated”. Well, the devices that the shoe bomber and the underwear bomber didn’t get the high tech terrorist of the year award, either.

RT on April 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm

truth be told, whoever is responsible, likely did it in the name of “Jihad”, bottom line. the only question is, are these guys the lone wolf types, got recruited via web or actually trained on the monkey bars in pakistan/afghanistan/north africa…etc. piece of advice for you, i’ve noticed that you jumped on the bandwagon every time they release a new suspect, including the guys on the cover of the ny post. don’t be so quick to do that, as it impacts your credibility….

Ro on April 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm

His skin looks light but his features look Arabic.

Laura on April 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm

..it seems to me that all three video clips show a THIRD person, a woman in a lightweight yellow jacket, walking third in line with the two men, spaced back an amount equal to the the space between the first two, and she has a dark backpack that contains a round, basketball shape similar to the black bridgestone hat guy…

Nick Fury on April 18, 2013 at 7:26 pm

…but I must be wrong, because Holder, Naps, etc., have told us on many occasions that only whit MALES are evil…..

Nick Fury on April 18, 2013 at 7:29 pm

    ‘white’ (big fingers, small smartphone)

    Nick Fury on April 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm

They could be Scandanavian mountaineers for all I care.
The only question is motivation.

Frankz on April 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm

Islam is not a race. just like Christianity or Judaism. there are white Muslims; see Albanians.

For me it is to early to tell. What is more annoying is all the speculation and jumping to conclusions on the 24 hour news networks. That was a major embarrassment about the arrest announcement yesterday.
Good Journalism is to much to expect apparently.
Both sides of the political divide be they liberals or conservatives seem to have a horse in this race. It is like people rooting for their favorite Football team, albeit in a sadistic way.

I am not sure who did this act but the second guy does look South Asian /Middle Eastern. The gentlemen was right that many north Indians and Pakistanis are fairly light. ( My parents were born in Punjab area of India)

In my mind Terrorism is like a 10 step process. A majority of the Muslim world seems to justify steps 1 through 10 and just condemn it when it comes to step 10 and the actual act of violence. The victim hood mentality does seem to be very strong and is fed by Mullas and Qazis.

sanjay on April 18, 2013 at 7:55 pm

Someone will recognize them. Any digital still camera photos from the public will have much better images. I believe these are from a security camera on a roof across the street. They look like 20 something-year-olds to me. The girl behind them with the backpack and cell phone should be identified, if she hasn’t already been.

Dale Zalaoras on April 18, 2013 at 8:36 pm

This crowd source photo is from Reddit:


First suspect is turning the corner onto Fairfield. The second one is next to the lady in pink. Notice the first suspect now has no backpack.

adam on April 18, 2013 at 9:11 pm

They’ve just been reporting on leaks coming out of the FBI.
Who knows what internal politics are coming into play there.

Frankz on April 18, 2013 at 9:21 pm

There are also many white Muslims in Turkey but they could be converts from the US.

Frankz on April 18, 2013 at 9:25 pm


What’s your opinion of Michael Emerson’s story about the Saudi who was a “person of interest” then was cleared and supposedly is going to be deported? A hoax? True? If it’s a hoax, who do you think started the story, the gov’t?

Scott on April 18, 2013 at 9:40 pm

The “Famous But Incompents” are now focusing on only two individuals with backpacks as the only “credible” persons of interest. Why is that? What about all the other people with suspicious backpacks who are dark-skinned males that have been seen in my photographs and videos? Why are they not included? What is the FBI hiding, and why are they doing it?

Is the FBI seeking two patsies? Or are they looking to pin this on some people in the mold of Richard Jewell? (If you don’t know who he was, you ought to look him up.) Did another Zacarias Moussaoui slip through their incompetent (or worse) fingers?

Whatever the FBI is up to, you can be sure that all efforts are being done to avoid pointing any fingers at Muslim terrorists. They know that need to find a Tea-party, an anti-gun control, a “right-winger,” or some other such non-Muslim culprit to take the fall, if at all possible. So, as you can imagine, they have their work cut out for them.

Ralph Adamo on April 18, 2013 at 9:46 pm

The posts here are worse than the typical lilly livered communists in this country. Everyone here sounds like a bunch of panty wastes. How come no one here has said, “Get a rope or put the terrorist before a firing squad.” As Dershowitz said in an interview years ago, “If they have a terrorist in custody, and he has information that will save lives, and he won’t give any information up, then torture is appropriate….”

AR on April 18, 2013 at 9:53 pm

The FBI indicated that these two individuals were seen dropping the backpack at the site of the second explosion. Are they also suspects for the first explosion or are there other suspects at that site?

Mitch on April 18, 2013 at 10:05 pm

I do not think it is Al Qaeda it may even be scarier. Home grown Islamic radicalism like they have in the UK.

We still do not know what happened and I do not like people attacking an entire community. That led to a psycho killing innocent Punjabi, Indian Sikhs in Wisconsin.

As an American I just want us out of the Middle East and Pakistan. What are we really accomplishing there? That area has been backwards for centuries and are we really making ourselves safer. They have killed many assets and that is good but lets come home now and let them fight amongst themselves.

The civilian deaths just fuel more ant American hatred anyway
My dad told me that was a Pakistani strategy against India. Pakistan knew they could not defeat India one on one so they came up with ” victory by a 1000 cuts”. That meant terrorism. and slowly letting that country bleed internally

sanjay on April 18, 2013 at 10:29 pm

If they’re white, maybe they’re Occupy Wall Streeters. One of them I think dropped his opinion on a cop car if I remember correctly.

Gino on April 18, 2013 at 10:33 pm

Without a doubt these two suspects are just hanging around in Medford or Chelmsford or some other burg around Boston. Terrorists never flee the country. They are trained to wait around and get caught. When the FBI picks them up in Situate or Reading or Dorchester or Waltham we’ll know they are the real bombers ’cause terrorists always hang around waiting to get caught. Now innocent guys, you can expect them to go on the lam. Right now all over metro Boston people are saying to each other, “I think that looks like you!” I loved the Keystone Cops as a kid and I really love their successors.

    When I was at Syracuse University, there was a rape on the campus. A discription of the rapist appeared in the campus newspaper: “About five feet four inches, dirty blond hair.” The minute I read it, I said to myself “50 innocent guys on this campus are going to be subjected to two days of silly jokes.”

    Miranda Rose Smith on April 19, 2013 at 2:04 am

From the video clips shown on the news, the pair look like they would have come from North Africa or the Middle East. It is more than possible that the pair were born in the United States.

Worry01 on April 18, 2013 at 11:02 pm

Interesting that no reward was offered by the FBI. Could this mean the suspects are foreign nationals and not domestic?

Carol on April 18, 2013 at 11:06 pm

“One of ‘em looks White to me–the one in the white baseball hat…”

Often when I have pointed out the fact that the vast majority of Muslims look like ethnic people, I get lectured by anti-Islam people that “there are many white Muslims” (Western converts, Bosnians, Albanians, plus from various Stans).

Well then, that would probably explain this guy in the white baseball cap.

Hesperado on April 18, 2013 at 11:34 pm

My immediate reaction was that it looked like a young Jamie Farr, Toledo born Jameel Farah, especially the nose. Arabic Americans were almost all Christian in those days, not Muslims. But he has a definite Middle Eastern look. The hair and hat also reminded me of a goofy Bob Denver. As far as skin tone, you can do almost anything with photoshopping.

Michelle on April 18, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Uh Yeah.

    Worry01 on April 19, 2013 at 12:32 am

Impossible to tell what he is. May be wearing a disguise. The nose and chin don’t look real, which may be why no one seems to have ID’d him yet. The other suspect appears to have some sort of ethnic background. Impossible to say what.

Hard to say who they are, but I think Islam is still the leading candidate. Could be converts.

adam on April 19, 2013 at 12:15 am

They can’t release the video of them dropping the b-packs for legal purposes, for future arrests, etc. And you claim to be a lawyer. Pathetic

You of all people should know that Arabs, like almost any people. are a genetic mishmash. Once, in East Jerusalem, I saw two little Arab boys selling soda. They could have posed for Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. (Or is it Fynn?) I once knew a Russian Jewish girl who I took one look at and thought “If I were illustrating a copy of Tom Sawyer, I would want her to pose for Becky Thatcher.”

Miranda Rose Smith on April 19, 2013 at 1:52 am

Explosions in Watertown, MA. No confirmation if this is related to the marathon bombing. Conflicting reports like on Monday. An MIT police officer killed.

Carol on April 19, 2013 at 3:01 am

Suspect #1 (dark cap guy) has been killed. #2 (white cap) is still at large. No names have been released.

Carol on April 19, 2013 at 4:25 am

His looking ‘white’ doesn’t preclude him from being Muslim. How many White/Hispanic/Black & other converts have we not had plotting all these terror attacks? As well as Muslims in US from places like Iran, Bosnia, Afghanistan and so on?

Infidel on April 19, 2013 at 5:07 am

So the men are literally Caucasians! Time to invade all Caucasian countries

Jim on April 19, 2013 at 7:31 am

well, as of this morning that’s one confirmed chechen muslim down… one to go.

tragically, the sons of islam murder a cop in the shootout.

it will be interesting to see if the obamboozle admin/media circulates this appropriately, downplays it, ignores it?

kirche on April 19, 2013 at 8:29 am

Yeah the sons of Islam kill a cop while the sons of Christianity drop bombs on sleeping women and children in Afghanistan. Oh yes, sorry i forgot, the 11 women and children recently killed by NATO forces in Afganistan don’t count because they weren’t white Americans…..

Jim on April 19, 2013 at 9:02 am

Just your ordinary everyday devout Muslims from the Chechnya Caucasus who just happened to be in the area at the same time as the Muslim Saudi from a terrorist clan, Alharbi.

Frankz on April 19, 2013 at 9:03 am

In fact, those two young men are double-agents who had been working for both the USA and Saudi Arabia: http://www.debka.com/article/22914/The-Tsarnaev-brothers-were-double-agents-who-decoyed-US-into-terror-trap . Work it all out from there… 😉
