Cops are seeking these two men (above) who were spotted near the site of the Boston blasts. Investigators probing the deadly Boston Marathon bombings are circulating photos of two men spotted chatting near the packed finish line, The Post has learned.

In the photos being distributed by law-enforcement officials among themselves, one of the men is carrying a blue duffel bag. The other is wearing a black backpack in the first photo, taken at 10:53 a.m., but it is not visible in the second, taken at 12:30 p.m.

“The attached photos are being circulated in an attempt to identify the individuals highlighted therein,” said an e-mail obtained by The Post. “Feel free to pass this around to any of your fellow agents elsewhere.”

I read several articles and found NOTHING about the ricin guy of any note. Just that his name seemed white bread American. Any info on that?

This photo and diagram got my attention quickly by FReeper PhilDragoo yesterday.

Shows how the pressure cooker would perfectly be outlined in the backpack.

CBS This Morning. I don’t have national news.

This is the guy they are really trying to find out who he is. Video came from store video camera on top of department store Lord & Taylor I believe. Aim right at the area of the second bomb explosion.

Interesting. And to that young man's left (in your team photo) is someone who looks quite a lot like this young man, allegedly the Saudi national who was burned in the bomb blast at the marathon (as posted here yesterday). Are they friends?

You seem to be doing the knee jerk defend the dark skinned guy routine, when I think the point is they are just flat out looking suspicious. The edgy look on their faces, the location where they are standing in relation to the explosion, the bags. They may not be the villains, but they are defiantly more suspicious than 99% of the people in that photo.

A couple of guys on the internet are able to figure out who did it in a manner of hours.

However our great government with its trillions of $ , ability to get info private info from cell phone companies and google etc has been at it for many days and still has to rely on those pics from every day internet users.

That's an interesting photo:

You can see the South African flag just over the head of the guy in the white hat and dark clothes. This photo is taken very close to the 1st bomb location.

I was wondering whether the guy in the white hat and dark clothes was the one running in shredded clothes, but it looks like they have different footwear, although it is hard to tell:

Keep in mind that this photo of the two guys with the Asian lady is not at the first bomb site, but about 100 feet away.

The two guys with the bags at a different point in time moved about 100 feet to where the first bomb site was.

Sorry - call me a skeptic, but I’m not buying it. The bag has orange juice tucked in it in one photo. The guy is using it as an actual bag.

There’s a small psychological block in people’s head that would have treated a bag with a bomb in it differently.

My bet is that these guys get cleared and that law enforcement continues to fumble around.

Well I sent you a freep mail of who one is... send it to the FBI.

They already talked to them yesterday... they thought they had their bombers and that was the false arrest report, when actually the 2 guys went in see local LE and were cleared. That why no 5pm conference. LE was looking for them yesterday and at the same time the 2 figured out LE was looking for them. The 2 went to LE on their own about the time LE learned their names. The newspaper is putting out old news from yesterday and are not caught up yet.

I don’t see anything suspicious about them at all.

I predict they will turn out to be a non-issue, based on all the wrong info being put out by the media all along.

Does anyone think the Saudi national is the same guy as the guy with backwards white hat near the top of this photo, in the vicinity of the first bombing location? Hard for me to tell.

I still think the 3 dudes hanging together are suspicious.... especially after the 3rd one in gray jacket w/black back pack seems to separate from the other two in photos I saw yesterday.
1 - black stocking cap, black jacket, ME
1 - black t-shirt w/white ball point pen (bic?) on his tshirt collar, ME with bushy black curly hair
1 - light gray jacket, black back pack - ditto ME and hair

No one is saying it proves anything. There was a report yesterday, perhaps incorrect, that the guy running in shredded clothes had been ID’d as the guy who dropped the bag at the first bombing site. Hence the interest in this guy.

The guy could be a legitimate Morrocan student and distance runner and still be a bomber.
Agree. I thought from the git-go that the bomber is a runner, and since the BM attracts international participants, would be easy for him to blend in w/everyone else.

See the space in front of the guy with the white hat? Look around. Everyone is packed like sardines, while here is this open space. His shoulders are kind of hunched forward, as if holding something with both hands. I think he had complaints about the protruding backpack from other folks around him so he moved it to his front.

The NYP captions their second photo, “The man in blue still has the bag over his shoulder in the crowd later, but the black backpack the man in the cap was wearing is no longer visible.”

However, I think they are wrong, the man with the white cap IS still carrying the black backpack. If you look closely at both pictures, the see-thru side pocket of the backpack contains various items that are just about visible in both pictures. Maybe he shifted the backpack to his left shoulder.

Still, they seem to have caught the attention of the blond woman to the left in the second picture.

Maybe someone has more pictures?

Below is a link to a French satirical puppet programme “Les Guignols”:
They think it is highly amsusing to make fun of the casualties of the Boston marathon.
The commentator then says “ It could be that the same person came first,second and third.”

It should be send to some Republican media and made to circulate.The french should be made to apologize to Boston and ALL Americans.

Maybe our government doesn’t want them apprehended. In any event, the guys behind this event are long gone. Probably were out of the country before the bombs were placed.

The Saudi little prince is also gone right?

How much you want to bet these two are back in Saudi Arabia now?....

No takers for that bet. How do we know for sure that these guys aren’t a pair the POST selected for their article. Just two guys from the crowd. Now IF, repeat IF indeed they had backpacks, etc. on them in one photo and not the photo the Post showed, maybe just maybe, they could be involved. So far I’m not buying into the theory.

I don't think so.

The Saudi national who was tackled "had no involvement," so we are told.

Maybe that is true in the literal sense. I.e., he may have had nothing to do with assembling or placing the bombs.

But how could the FBI conclude so quickly that he knew nothing about the plot?

And it it's true, as Steve Emerson says, that that Saudi national who "had no involvement" is going to be deported as a "national security risk," then ... what risk exactly did he pose?

I'd also like to hear from the bystander who tackled him. What did the bystander see that made him suspicious? Is the bystander being kept under wraps?

I took some FEMA disaster classes. They consistently emphasized we should expect a second explosion in the same vicinity as the first one.

The fact that this man ran may indicate he’s had military experience or is a doctor, nurse, paramedic or red cross worker. His training may have just kicked in.
