The Saudi Marathon Man
What made them suspect him? He was running—so was everyone. The police reportedly thought he smelled like explosives; his wounds might have suggested why. He said something about thinking there would be a second bomb—as there was, and often is, to target responders. If that was the reason he gave for running, it was a sensible one. He asked if anyone was dead—a question people were screaming. And he was from Saudi Arabia, which is around where the logic stops. Was it just the way he looked, or did he, in the chaos, maybe call for God with a name that someone found strange?
What happened next didn’t take long.“Investigators have a suspect—a Saudi Arabian national—in the horrific Boston Marathon bombings, The Post has learned.” That’s the New York Post, which went on to cite Fox News. The “Saudi suspect”—still faceless—suddenly gave anxieties a form. He was said to be in custody; or maybe his hospital bed was being guarded. The Boston police, who weren’t saying much of anything, disputed the report—sort of.“Honestly, I don’t know where they’re getting their information from, but it didn’t come from us,” a police spokesman said. But were they talking to someone? Maybe.“Person of interest” became a phrase of both avoidance and insinuation. On the Atlas Shrugs Web site, there was a note that his name in Arabic meant “sword.” At an evening press conference, Ed Davis, the police commissioner, said that no suspect was in custody. But that was about when the dogs were in the apartment building in Revere—an inquiry that was seized on by some as, if not an indictment, at least a vindication of their suspicions.
“There must be enough evidence to keep him there,” Andrew Napolitano said on “Fox and Friends”—“there” being the hospital.“They must be learning information which is of a suspicious nature,” Steve Doocy interjected.“If he was clearly innocent, would they have been able to search his house?” Napolitano thought that a judge would take any reason at a moment like this, but there had to be “something”—maybe he appeared “deceitful.” As Mediaite pointed out, Megyn Kelly put a slight break on it (as she has been known to do) by asking if there might have been some “racial profiling,” but then, after a round of speculation about his visa (Napolitano:“Was he a real student, or was that a front?”), she asked,“What’s the story on his ability to lawyer up?”
By Tuesday afternoon, the fever had broken. Report after report said that he was a witness, not a suspect.“He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time,” a “U.S. official” told CNN.(So were a lot of people at the marathon.) Even Fox News reported that he’d been “ruled out.” At a press conference, Governor Deval Patrick spoke, not so obliquely, about being careful not to treat “categories of people in uncharitable ways.”
We don’t know yet who did this.“The range of suspects and motives remains wide open,” Richard Deslauriers of the F.B.I. said early Tuesday evening. In a minute, with a claim of responsibility, our expectations could be scrambled. The bombing could, for all we know, be the work of a Saudi man—or an American or an Icelandic or a person from any nation you can think of. It still won’t mean that this Saudi man can be treated the way he was, or that people who love him might have had to find out that a bomb had hit him when his name popped up on the Web as a suspect in custody. It is at these moments that we need to be most careful, not least.

I heard some reporter asking his friend "so, do you think your friend did it?" These reporters are too much. While the entire BPD was raiding this guys apartment, maybe the white supremacists were playing beer pong.

<quoted text> They owned slaves doesn't mean they were racists. You cannot look at the past with todays eyes. You know the first slave owner in this country was black? Whites were slaves too. The 3/5 clause was so the south would not have a super majority in the House. Not that bullcrap brain capacity nonsense. You are better than that!
Flack, you know the process of slavery! From buying humans as property to beating said property to maintain obedience. Even lynching to set examples to the rest of the herd. I know there were Irish slaves, & that didn't take away from the guilt. I know there were black slave owners, that doesn't take away from the guilt. Just because something is common, doesn't mean it's right. Look at the gays!

Obama promised to find those responsible and punish them severly. No more ice cream, ice tea is way out of the question, restricted to only 100 channels of cable tv, and only one luthor vandross record permitted. I know he is getting tough this second term.

Actually, a person who never changes their mind is a danger.
Presiden Obama thought that a civil union approach was a solution. When it did not, he changed his mind for the legalization of same sex marriage.
As for the election, a person in favor of sane sex marriage would still consider Obama a better option that Romney - who had a proven dislike for gays as shown in his prep school assault.
Actually, a person with double standards is a danger.

Remember when Romney had a change of heart about abortion? He was chastised up and down by the left. Only Romney's change of heart didn't happen right before an election.

Funny how you can't see the difference.

DOH! Silly me should have known that you, from the Democrat Party devoid of principles would simply excuse Obama for doing the same as Bush. You guys campaigned over four years ago that Republicans should go because of what Obama is doing now.

Gee - DOH!

How silly of me not to predict you would be a hypocrite.

<quoted text> Exactly what are you talking about?Countless presidents were self proclaimed racist, owning slaves & all. Even signed the constitution that stated black people were only 1/3 human. Not to mention, there just happened to be recordings of Romney's 47% blunder, but no recording of Obama at any of the sermons of racial rhetoric. You people look for contrast, & when you can't find any, you make shit up!
Oh, for heaven's sakes. That was long before the Civil War. In case you haven't noticed, things have changed a bit. Many former slaves were voted into office in the Republican Party from the late 1800s until the Democrats won them over in the late 1930s. Then there was the Civil Rights Act.

And, of course, we won't even mention the number of blacks who have become CEOs, physicians, lawyers, professors, politicians and heads of state to name just a few since then.

Holding a grudge this long is unhealthy and doesn't ease racial tensions.

That was never the purpose though - easig racial tensions. Obama feeds off of it.

Whatever happened to the Benghazi terrorists?

Nothing, you say?

That's what I thought.

After 911, Bush kept us safe.

What about Obama?

Dead people and over 100 in the hospitals in Boston?

N. Korea, Iran.

Anyone feel safer now?

It's only a double standard if you are a Republican, silly!
