Are the FBI’s Main Suspects Innocent?
The FBI – as well as Internet sleuths at Reddi and 4Chan – have analyzed photographs from the Boston marathon to help identify the terrorists.
Suspicion originally focused on these guys … 24-year-old Yassine Zaimi and 17-year old Salaheddin Barhoum:
Zaimi and Barhoum are both Moroccan immigrants. Zaimi graduated from Revere High School outside of Boston, and Barhoum – who works at Subway – is currently a student at that school. Barhoum calls Zaimi his “track coach”.
Zaimi looks scary in the photo above, but other pictures of him and Barhoum make them look harmless:
They both vigorously deny that they are the bombers, and have turned themselves in to investigators in order to clear their names.
ABC News reports:
Federal law enforcement sources told ABC News they are no longer seeking information about Barhoun or the other man in the photo published in the Post.
UPDATE: Jack Shafer does a yeoman’s job shredding the awful reportage at the Murdoch-owned NY Post: Shameless paper in mindless fog.
