BOSTON (Reuters) - The FBI said on Thursday that "identifying and locating those responsible is now our highest priority," after officials showed the public pictures of two men seen near the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday.

The two men are seen on videotapes and the FBI said that suspect No. 1 is wearing a dark hat while suspect No. 2 has a white hat. The second suspect was seen planting the bag that eventually exploded, the FBI said at news conference in Boston.

It’s extremely sad that my junk food news stations had these photo’s before the release from authorities. It’s amazing that Homeland Security and all its self proclaimed glory once again failed the American people.

Even sadder will be when the authorities fail to say that the suspects might be Muslim and that they might believe in radical Islam out to destroy anyone or anything standing in their way; if they there were ever a suspicion of Christians, it would have been all over including Reuters.

So I go to the link from the FBI for the video and it is Youtube.
The video shows 300 views, 2,600 likes and 300 dislikes.
Is it just me or does the whole thing seem like bull manure?
How can almost 300 people rate a video that has only been viewed 300 times?
The real killer is back in Saudi Arabia with is wealthy parents according to the smaller news sources.
Forget the mainstream media, they are controlled by the wealthy who invest in oil futures and who depend on Saudi Arabia for profits.
