Richard DesLauriers, special agent in charge of the Boston FBI office referred to the two men pictured in FBI released video as “suspect number one” and “suspect number two”. Department of homeland security’s Janet Napalitano isn’t so sure.
DesLauriers described the two men as Suspect No. 1 and Suspect No. 2. Suspect No. 1 was wearing a dark hat. Suspect No. 2 was wearing a white hat and that suspect number two was vidoe’d dropping his backpack at bomb location #2.
When questioned by Congress on the same day, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napalitano said there were “individuals” the FBI would like to speak to and that she “wouldn’t characterize them as ‘suspects’ under the technical term. But we need the public’s help in locating these individuals.”
The way things appear, the FBI is making a full-court press while being held back by DHS. Homeland security seems more interested in political appearances than catching the men the FBI suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings.
The explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon killed three innocent people and injured at least 170 more.
