I'll amend that and say it certainly doesn't affect official investigations

at least the original title is still in my post


looks like they are all now saying 'identified' only.

these news outlets should be held accountable when they jump the gun with only 'unidentified sources'.

it seems we now have a low standard for 'so-called' journalism.

I have been chastised for being skeptical, anyone that is not is just too gullible these days.
You're absolutely dead-on here. Clowns like John King and Wolf Blitzer are ritualistically chanting references to "sources", the god-seed upon which all knowledge springs. Sources tell us the suspect is a dark skinned man. Also, he's white, and in custody, and not arrested.

Kudos to NBC for not being morons (here).

10 Boston Marathon Bombing 'Suspects' 4chan And Reddit Found [PHOTOS]



^^ thats the guy the FBI has as a suspect right now. He was on his phone at the time of the first explosion standing where the second one went off seconds later.

I'm not politically correct, so I'm going to go ahead and say he looks middle-eastern to me, which also to me highly suggests Jihad, as well as the bombs themselves being well made.

Whether that ends up being the guy or not, it's really irresponsible to name 10 suspects and then post photos of them for the world to see and judge. It's unfortunate that maybe all 10, maybe 9 will be totally innocent bystanders

Also, how do you know that's the guy the FBI has identified? I haven't seen this anywhere.

These are just people on the internet speculating. But I recognized the first photo as the same photo in another article, albeit with his face blurred, that I saw earlier. I'm trying to find it.

I was amazed the first day when they said they had detained/questioned someone who was seen running away from the scene. (Was that the one described as the "Saudi national," or was that someone else?)

Um .... someone running away from an explosion was unusual and cause for suspicion?

The internet jumping to conclusions before all of the information is known? I'm so shocked.

I also love how you can immediately tell someone's ethnicity from a slightly blurry photo.

The guy could easily be Hispanic or of Southern European descent (Portuguese, Sicilian, Greek).

The media is looking for high ratings, and with lack of news, they're losing those ratings.

"I'm not politically correct" is just a great way to start any sentence.

But a crucial piece of evidence called a taggant that could be used to trace the gunpowder used in the bombs to a buyer at a point of sale is not available to investigators.

“If you had a good taggant this would be a good thing for this kind of crime. It could help identify the point of manufacturer, and chain of custody,” Bob Morhard, an explosives consultant and chief executive officer of Zukovich, Morhard & Wade, LLC., in Pennsylvania, who has traced explosives and detonators in use in the United States and Saudi Arabia, told MSNBC.com. “The problem is nobody wants to know what the material is.”

Explosives manufacturers are required to place tracing elements known as identification taggants only in plastic explosives but not in gunpowder, thanks to lobbying efforts by the NRA and large gun manufacturing groups.
by the way, there appears to be some sort of consensus that they ACTUALLY DID catch the guy mailing the ricin letters. Dude is from Mississippi, which explains why on earth anyone has a killer feud with that US Senator.

Another thing I'm getting of is the news channels repeatedly showing the video of the bombing. As if we don't know by now how it happened.

All three cable news stations have gotten silly in recent years.
