Did you know that the Saudi National Once Considered ‘Person of Interest’ in the Boston Marathon bombings is Being Deported on ‘Security’ Grounds. The Saudi national is a member of a well-connected Saudi family and that his deportation was set to be framed as a “voluntary” departure to be with his family. INTERESTING!!!

Was a StarTribune reporter present to ask this source, or did the StarTribune parrot what the garbage-pail news services (e.g. CNN, FOX) were reporting? The New York Times - the gold standard of journalism - never reported an arrest. A blunder such as this could cause problems for law enforcement investigating the case. Please take better care in your reporting!

And you believed him? How do you know he was a person with accurate intel? And if he can't divulge his identity, perhaps he shouldn't and you shouldn't be reporting the possibly incorrect info.

Wow, how freaky it would be to recognize yourself as one of the people walking alongside those two. SOMEONE must recognize them, or have pictures with them in the background.

First off, I haven't read all the accounts of what's going on with this investigation. That said, what the heck are you guys talking about (fishbach and sooofedup)? This article says nothing about an arrest.

Now if they'd just release the footage of the airliner that hit the Pentagon, we'd be getting somewhere.

Looking at the video of these two, they seem very suspicious. They're clearly together, as one follows the other for some time, around corners, etc., always staying a few feet behind. Backpacks, not being too interested in the actual marathon. They may be involved. Also, they're together but not talking to each other. They're not right next to each other. The one in front is leading the one behind. Again: very suspicious. But what about the guys from Craft International? Please look this information up. There was a private paramilitary company called Craft International that was all over the place. They're like Blackwater. They were running a drill involving bombs at the end of the marathon. Two of them were RIGHT NEXT to where the first blast went off just moments before it happened. They escaped just in time. How'd they know to vacate the area? Who told them? What were they doing there? These men definitely need to be considered suspects, as well.

Owatonnabill gives little credence to internet and pundit chatter. Most is nothing but guesswork punctuated by the prejudices of the person doing the punditing. Nevertheless there are some disturbing inconsistencies in this entire matter. For instance, there were six devices--three exploded of their own accord, one was exploded by the police and two duds. Yet there are surviellance pictures--released nearly four days after the incident--of only two suspects. Video is only released nearly four days after the incident...and in that time any suspects could easily drive to Canada from Boston or fly anywhere in the world. A "person of interest" disappears suddenly only to learn that this individual was "deported" to his home country (Saudi Arabia) mere hours after the incident. The "suspects" in the video(s) are making no effort to disguise or hide their identity even though the perps must have known that surviellance would be done. Owatonnabill wants to have the utmost faith in the ability and motivation of the enforcement arms of our government, but much of this seems to be that America is being primed to see these events in a certain light. Now owatonnabill doesn't know about you, but to him that is a VERY uncomfortable feeling.

LOL quote o' the day by fishbach: "The New York Times - the gold standard of journalism." Well fishbach, on September 11, 2001, the Times ran a piece titled "No Regrets for a Love Of Explosives; In a Memoir of Sorts, a War Protester Talks of Life With the Weathermen." The following is a profile by the NYT's of the author promoting his new autobiography: "”I don’t regret setting bombs,” Bill Ayers said. ”I feel we didn’t do enough.” Mr. Ayers, who spent the 1970′s as a fugitive in the Weather Underground, was sitting in the kitchen of his big turn-of-the-19th-century stone house in the Hyde Park district of Chicago...Now he has written a book.. Mr. Ayers, who is 56, calls it a memoir...He writes that he participated in the bombings of New York City Police Headquarters in 1970, of the Capitol building in 1971, the Pentagon in 1972." You see fishbach, one only need say they have "no regrets" for bombing federal buildings or otherwise to get coverage by the NYT's.

Wow Ronpaul, you got that all from the video they showed a couple of hours ago. You must be some super secret agent that has infiltrated the government. I mean, I just saw a couple guys walking down the street. But you have such amazing visual recognition software implanted in your eyes that you were able to positively ID them. Impressive. Time to put on the tin foil hat. How about you wait, at least a week, before coming out with you conspiracy theories.
