    Sonesta, that link is not working as CNN mis-identified these folks. One was a runner and the other his coach. The FBI has not released any photos to the public at this point.

    Thanks for the update, just looked at the little bastards. Those are not the guys that CNN identified not even close! I hope they hunt them down like the dogs they are and . . . . .

    They look Middle Eastern or Asiatic to me. Very non-descript otherwise.

    What they really need are personal pictures taken during the races. Who knows how many phone/digital camera photos might have those two lurking in the background?!

    It's very hard to tell. Could be Israeli, for all we know (which would be middle eastern.)

    Is this the one instance I can say "They all look alike to me..." without getting chastised for it?

    Maybe lol.

    Honestly, Middle Eastern looking was my first thought too, but I don't know if that is just because we are primed to see that after 9/11.


    ETA: The local news has been asking for the public's pictures and videos.

    You're right, Lex, all pixelated, movement-blurred figures look alike to me too!

    They really look like the "average Joe" to me.

    I agree. I think they could be just about any race or ethnicity based on these pictures.

    To be honest, it's not really helpful to assume they are middle-eastern for a variety of reasons, including the fact that an assumption like that may prevent people from noticing other similarities. Sure, either one *could* be middle eastern, but they could be just about anything from these pictures, including American.

    All I could think of was - wow - they are dead men walking.... Hopefully people will not try to apprehend them because I'm afraid for the suspects more than the ones that might try to apprehend them. Angry people are dangerous.

    They must be up to no good, because they are the only ones not staring at their phone.

    I was thinking "average joe" as well.

    It is actually really creepy to look at the photos of them casually walking around with bomb-filled backpacks on them. I can barely articulate how it makes me feel: sick, angry, disturbed.

    S1969, my husband is American born...but his grandparents are not. So yes, they could be Americans first and foremost.
