Boston bombings

It's hard to keep up, but here are some key facts:

A Saudi national on a student visa was tackled on suspicion at the scene. It turns out his familial clan is rife with members of Al-Qaeda. He was investigated but is no longer a suspect, yet is being deported on national security grounds. Around the same time a meeting between John Kerry and the Saudis was suddenly closed to the press. (Ironically, Obama recently loosened the checks on incoming Saudis).

Among some interesting photos (below) are some men of Middle Eastern appearance.

An Al-Qaeda theorist (Abu Musab al-Suri) was released in 2012 by Syria as a warning to the USA about the consequences of turning their backs on President Assad. The May 2012 edition of Al-Qaeda’s English language screed “Inspire,” contains an essay claimed to have been penned by al-Suri which calls for bombing "in the heart of America ... such as crowded sports arenas, annual social events, large international exhibitions, crowded marketplaces, sky-scrapers, crowded buildings etc."

Al Qaeda Bomb-Making Suggestion, 2010: “Pressurized cooker is the most effective method”, as was used in these bombs.

I'm not sure if the following people are officially suspects or not ...
