They’re realizing that there are more out there and don’t want to give away their “capture”.

They’re having trouble figuring out how to conduct a news conference on this subject without mentioning the words “terrorism,” “muslim,” or “dark-skinned.”

What the hell is going on??

Fox News' Rick Leventhal, reporting live in Boston, said a short time ago: "Photos of two persons of interest are being circulated around by law enforcement... I've seen the photos, but I can't show them to you."

Now this latest FBI presser has been canceled??

My theory... it was canceled because Obama wanted to throw his fit live at 5:45.

... or taking him (or them) to court for arraignment would require disclosure of certain, ahem, methods abilities that were employed to ID and capture them. Perhaps ones that would cause a public uproar if disclosed?

If the FBI cancelled a news conference, they must REALLY have nothing. I never heard of the FBI passing up face time before a camera.

They are more interested in being the one to catch these guys then actually catching them. People could help but they don’t want that. Media should tell them to F**k off and publish the description they know. Media are complicate in this travesty.

Sounds to me like they have someone they DO NOT want to reveal because of their connections to Islam/Muslim governments. IF its someone directly connected to ruling families in Saudi Arabia what COULD they do? This government is sympathetic and supportive of all things Islamic. Major political hot-potato. The spin- or the framing of someone else- will take time.

Someplace has several photos, including one frame-by-frame animation of a guy with shredded pants running away. I don’t know if it was linked on TB2K, Zerohedge, or here. MAYbe even du and maybe drudge (but I don’t think so)...or it could have been in comments on any of those articles.

There are 2 beefy looking guys wearing khakis & black windbreaker like jackets (with big backpacks) and a couple of (dark) olive complected men.

It’s this

(grr it moved in my history when I clicked on it. I have no idea where it linked from. If I figure it out, I’ll update) It listed as 4chan, but that’s one place I do *not* go. It could have come from a reddit link, too.

My bet is that some additional information came to light warranting a postponement.

That, or they could frantically be searching for another anti-Islam YouTube video to blame.

Seriously, the meme Obama would have us believe is that Bush’s WOT was an utter failure. Obama’s approach of appeasement and turning a blind eye has won the war and eliminated terrorist actions in the U.S. and on U.S. soil overseas. He has been fortunate in that there have been no serious attacks here even though there were close calls.

Benghazi screwed that meme royally, but the public wasn’t interested in getting to the bottom of it because it wasn’t here.

Boston changes the whole ball game. If this is Islamic terrorism, it’s on U.S. soil on Obama’s watch. His HSA has failed. Oh, there will be (and already have been) attempts to blame political opponents (sequester, blah, blah), but nobody will seriously buy that.

There will be calls to allocate more money to HSA and it will not be politically smart to oppose that. More money going to HSA means less money going to moochers.

It’s Obama’s worst nightmare.

The guy is a Muslim Brotherhood backing anti-Mubarak “freedom fighter” Jihadi fighting for the Syrian rebels against Assad who came over here on an Iranian boat to Mexico, crossed the border illegally at Nogalas but ICE was ordered to release him due to “sequestration”.

They can’t have that so they need to find another suspect they can pin it on instead.

You're the whole ricin thing is absurdly overblown -- the guy who did it will turn out to be such an oaf, he likely did not pose any serious danger.

First of all, merely touching ricin is not fatal -- it must be ingested, inhaled or injected to cause death. And the guy probably wasn't capable of producing a very potent grade.

So anyway, yeah, the White House is playing up the "omg, Obama got a ricin letter" to try to distract from the Marathon bombing ... and we all have a pretty good idea why.

considering all the bad press and mistakes Obama has made on Fort Hood all the way through to Benghazi - at the moment, his advisers must be playing this safe.

However, I think Jayna Davis’ book, The Thrid Terrorist - which illustrates a direct link to Iraq for the Oklahoma City Bombing where only McVeigh and Nichols were blamed - brought up the fact that Clinton didn’t want to go to war —

I would say the same is true in this case for Obama, the little boy is scared and is trying to divert from a massive military build up for invasion for whatever country is responsible for this. With defense cuts (especially in intelligence) a time for this to happen will stain Obama with more blood of US Citizens...least us not forget the four in Libya!
