I just posted what happened as I was at the game so I might as well post what a girl at my son's fraternity said. She is Iranian (Persian) and she said two dark Middle Eastern types came running into the stadium and separated several minutes after the bomb went off. She said since she was Middle Eastern she felt safe in saying they fit the profile. She made a point of saying they were much darker skinned then the Iranian people and when she heard the bomb blast, she was convinced at the time it was a suicide bomb and these two were part of what was happening.
Word we are getting is that they were on their way to the stadium to make a statement by blowing it up there. My daughter and I walked the long way back to my son's fraternity house as they had closed off a large part of the campus and was behind someone (he was wearing a suit) on the phone and his wife was telling everyone around to get as far away from the stadium as possible. Freaky night!
Great info... Thank you.
See #646 and #660 if you haven't already.
So glad you're all ok.

I'll take this eyewitness report over anything Boren or MSM are saying.
This is shocking and frightening.
I'm so glad you and your son are O.K.
Thanks for the ingo. The news media disgusts me (and that includes Fox) for ignoring this story.
OK Glass of wine time.
I think this probably explains why security people working for the Pittsburgh Steelers are patting down everyone entering their stadium for games this year.
OMG. My wife called and finally got her car out of the west parking lot. She is going to try to come down Western to get out of Norman. Thank you for your eyewitness account.
Nothing to see here. Everyone just move along.
Yes a Persian, at least one who traveled much, would know her middle east types, even if she just got a quick look.
While PhiKapMom has provided us some first hand reports, this Persian lady's report is only second hand, which is probably a heck of a lot better than Boren and the "authorities" are getting.
I wonder if the bomb went off prematurely before the bomber could get into the stadium.
HAve her or your son tell the stadium security people. They may have caught them on camera.
