    FWIW, quoting CNN/FOX from here on out is about as reliable as southside weighing in on picking up chicks.

    Thanks.

    The release....or quasi/amateur release of these photos will hopefully get one, two or a few of these people who are innocent to step forward and say, "hey, that's me on video, I'm innocent, this is what I was doing and in fact, here's my backpack." When one or two of those guys don't come forward it can narrow down the search.

    Personally, I find it hard to believe that the black jacket, tan pants "commando" guys are major suspects unless I see pics of them WITHOUT those backpacks.

    So what? No one is taking it as gospel, just talking about what is being reported.

    That one picture of the guys backpack where they outlined the potential bomb is pretty interesting.

    Apparently Obama had a meeting today with a Saudi minister that wasn't on his public schedule. The meeting was reported to be about Syria.

    Maybe someone else can verify this but I heard during the same FOX unconfirmed report that we do not arrest Saudi citizens, instead we send them back to Saudi Arabia. Not sure if I heard that correctly. Seems very strange. Have to take with grain of salt. But it is interesting.

    I have heard that before, I just dont know to what extent and if it can be revoked. I heard the same report you did on Fox and it sounded like he did have immunity.

    I dont think they were all thought to be suspects. Just people in that area who had larger backpacks. The two that are of interest to law enforcement are the ones we were talking about earlier. They certainly look like they are carrying something of decent weight in those bags.

    My point is that this "no bag" business is nonsense since it is more likely he is just holding it in front of him. Furthermore, these shots are hours before the explosion, why would they have left the bag out in the open so long? Also, This guy doesn't match the description. The hat is on the wrong way and there is no light-colored hoodie. This is all irrelevant anyway. The feds have a video showing the placement of the bomb---they know who it is. We don't need to be playing pin the tail on the Arab just because someone is brown and wearing a backpack. If there was some evidence to do that fine, but I'm not seeing it in these pictures.

    Wonder if this ends up being accurate. Would be very interesting.

    *edit. Beat me to it. Wonder if it has any teeth.
    Even if this is true, why would this be interesting? They're talking to him, they check him out...turns out like untold millions of visa holders before him, he has overstayed his visa. He has to go back. Pretty simple. Is the implication that they would deport someone who was a suspect or could have otherwise been useful to the investigation? Because that is absurd.

    To be fair, I think people have been pinning the tail on white guys too, sloppy guy, "commandos", etc.

    The commandos looked to be brown fellows, and sloppy guy, well he is just a horse of another color altogether.

    After sloppy guy is exonerated we should reach out with a Hampur invite.

    Sort of like our own Richard Jewel.
