    Hello people. Did anyone one happen to notice that the backpack on the older brother was dark gray and the younger brothers was light colored maybe tan !!! The pictures taken of the blown up backback that supposedly had one of the bombs in it was BLACK!!!! Neither of the brothers had a black backpack that even looked close to it. But I saw two suspicious men that did . After the bombs went of they showed those two men with no backpacks anymore. Wow.

    Wolf Blitzer. At some moment in your reporting on the Boston bombings you say that you cant understand how these two young men came to behave like this or some such. You have strong ties to Israel and are a citizen of the USA, two countries that have seen fit to use heavy measures to back up their world veiw or the safety of their people, as have my people the English, and you say you cant understand other warriors. This distinction between terrorist and solders turns us into whinning hypocrites, how do we expect the Islamic states to understand such a deep understanding of our own misfortunes and such an expectation of stoicism on their part in this war mongering business tha seems to be part of htis new century. Their civilians get such a terrible amount of punishment that terrrible as it is for a little girl to lose her legs, her brother to die and her mother to get shot in the head, they have had to suffer so many more broken families whose members have been killed in these troubles that it behoves us to remember that we get it light compered to them? When anceint civilisation re-counted their wars you often hear them talk in admiration of the bravery or brutality of the soldiers they are fighting with, we have regressed, we hit others and then complain like crazy if we get hit back. You just cant imagine how many Spaniards have been blown up by Basque terrorists and the terrorists have not been given the death sentence nor have the bombings stopped all other news for days, though maybe it would have been better if they had. I have a great admiration for Ghandis ideas, for his upholding of pacifism though we suffer to get it, however my ideas about pacifism waver between thinking Ghandi was right and seeing the convenience of maintaining order through force, so I cant be called a good follower of Ghandis ideas but O am sure that if I am going to be part of a culture that believes in policing the world then I would like us to be braver about taking what we hand out to others and more honest. rose macaskie madrid

      I've been wondering about that same issue. These two brothers lived in an apt in Cambridge and could afford round-trip to Russia.Went to and lived at college and had a Honda CRV. Where did they get their money?

    How many times can Wolf Blitzer interrupt the person he's interviewing? Damn, it's annoying!

    While following your exhaustive coverage of the terrorist bombing in Boston I was struck by the change of terminology, you did not call them militants you actually called them Terrorists which is of course what they are...I guess that when we are attacked here in the US we can call them terrorists but when civilians are attacked overseas say in Israel they are not terrorists they are militants?

    CNN Questions to Answer – Who paid for the two brothers – living expenses, Mercedes, food, travel? Follow the money guys. Wolf's barely scratched the surface on this Saturday morning so far. Gunds, cars, bombs... someone funded this all.

    I am Swiss. During my last 5 Years before retirement, I was working togheter with several Muslim collegues. One of them came from former Yugoslavia, he is married, he has Childrens, all of them are Swiss Citizens now. They have a House, they have a Job, they came as refugees into our Country.

    II never forget the Moment, when I once asked him, how he and his family feels to live in our Country. His answer was: Switzerland, for us, is the real HELL.

    Christians may not understand, but for Muslims, Christians are NOT EQUAL, and Christians will, for Mulsims, never be equal. Christians are Devils, they not NOT live as it is written in the Bible. And because of this, Christians are worthless, because they do NOT believe in the RIGHT GOD.

    Since then, I understand, that there will NEVER be Peace between Muslims and Christians. In Contrary, Muslims just wait to get 'democratic' Mayoriities, like in Switzerland in about 40-50 Years, then, they will start to rule this Country as well as others. Christians will have no Chance, because most of them do NOT believe, what History tells them. Christians are divided, Churches are loosing Members like never before, the Christian Society on the way of eliminating itself.

    Muslim Society will jump into the Gap, and they will take over, soomer or later. It's not their fault, they just fill the HOLE, left by a Societty, based not on believe, but on Money, Influence and Power.

    It's our own fault, because we are building the grounds for them to grow. And they continue to grow, because we coninue to decline. As more as we loose our Christian Culture, as more they gain.

    If we do not understand, what's going on oin this World, others will teach us. The hard way.

    You and your entire team have done a FABULOUS job covering the Boston story. I admire you and your team for not jumping to conclusions and giving false information just to be the first with the story. Keep up the good work. Love CNN.

    How did the 19 year old suspect manage to escape a standoff???

    All that law enforcement, helicopters, humvees, etc....

    Has no one asked that question?? It's inconceivable to me that he got away. I believe he did, it just seems ridiculously lucky.

    It is good, smart, disciplined, to shut down a show any criminals that if they try it, by any means necessary they will be hunted down!

    How in the hell they let the one bomber get away. We are already on high alert, the bombers are found and one escapes ? It should have been 30 or more cop cars out there. Helicopters....

    Who is the woman with the yellow balloons?

    Timestamp on video of suspects is 11-13 minutes before 1st explosion. According to CNN’s Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer analyst, Tom Foreman, last night the suspects had 1 to 1.5 blocks to walk after the video was filmed. If the woman stopped, how and why did she end up in the location of the 1st explosion?

    These terrorists are evil, ignorant, Neanderthals!! What is their mission? The world is a better place and trying to amend for any sins, and these people concentrating on evil is not helping their countries or families because they are taking what could be positive energy in creating economic opportunities only into evil smallishnish which causes attention for a second in the history of world but if they could have bought about positive change, it would help others for lifetimes. It's good verses evil, and they need to be hunted down for the garbage they are

    why is it certain people want to point out useless and pointless non-facts and make up their own conspiracy theories ?
    I mean come on. It's just ridiculous how some people think they know how to do a better job than law enforcement .

    Who's the guy behind these two suspects? He seems to have a rucksack & a bag & is on the phone all through the video.

    "Only one of these two guy's?? Plus a young Lady, same distance apart with Yellow top?? Simila type, back-pack, also carrying a bulge??"

      Will anyone say anything about the guy in the staircase making hand gestures and as the 2 suspects walk away the lady walks past the agent putting his earpiece in and he noticed her and waved his hand at her.

    Has anyone noticed the woman in the striped sleeve shirt leaning against the wall? As the suspects pass, she immediately looks down to what appears to be a cell phone to text. Could she have been a checkpoint person? It looks very suspicious. Does anyone know why she is there, she does not appear to be interested in the race, but she almost acknowledges the suspects passing in front of her. Has she been identified?

    Suspect #1 is wearing sandals..... could be as distinctive as hat when attempting to ID

    "Six people are 'Interactively moving' in the same traction on/of this video. Who has been elimated from the video is what we don't know??"

    There is no way bombs can go off, until you apply some power. Batteries take two minutes!

    How about the girl, with long dark hair, off to the side, against the bldg, wearing the black and white horizontal striped shirt, holding a large blue duffel bag. She gets on her cell phone immediately after both of the two suspects pass by her. Identify her.

    Let's mention that FBI agents worked hard figuring out the way arounds of hundreds of individuals over many hours of video/photos reconstituting the entire event with clips segment. So look at the clip and tell yourself that all people you see with backpack/bags, etc, have been followed through video/photo reconstitution. The two guys identified by FBI are the ones standing out amongst hundred of leads.
