I hope they catch him. Milk him for any information he has , by whatever means they feel necessary, and then send him on his way to the next world.

Great, well there goes arriving in 2013

I thought the aunt...who is in Canada...said her brother came to the US as a refugee...but I could be wrong.

Just edited myself -- I had misunderstood the uncle's words earlier, you are correct.

This translates to me as, "Catch the FBI's person of interest and torture him to death whether he's guilty or innocent." Nothing new about that sort of feeling; that's why there are persons of interest still in Guantanamo getting tortured, but it's not quite what the US Constitution calls for - or indeed the world's human-rights Conventions.

Is it relevant to prove guilt, these days? Not for everybody, eh?

Really? I wonder why this 'person of interest' , as you quaintly put it, hasn't come forward to clear his name? The sooner he does this the sooner the FBI can concentrate on catching the actual terrorists.

How strange is that?

I think it is rather likely that the second suspect (assuming he is armed), knowing what faces him when caught, has probably done himself in already.

That's the way I suspect this will play out... he'll be found dead in a basement or shed sooner or later.

It says as much about society's broken state as it does about that of the individuals themselves. As I said before, life is not as simple as Good vs Evil or Yes vs No.
Yah, I wonder why that occurred in the UK, Spain, France, etc.. There must be something wrong with all of those countries and not the terrorists.

As long as you stay clean in between renewals probably not. Though expect fees to rise to pay for all the extra background checks.

Exactly. They had a plan up to and including the bombing - and not a very good one. They didn't appear to have much of a plan for afterwards. They were pretty stupid if they thought that there wouldn't be photographic and video evidence that would nail them - they were operating in probably the most photographed and videoed section of the US at that moment.

She definitely said she was a lawyer and talked like a lawyer. She only saw photos of them and there isn't any proof (other than he was wearing an IUD when he was killed).

One thing that has always had me confused. They say that the technology is there that can photograph of one taking a tinkle in your back garden from a satellite orbiting the earth?

So why is is when they post a photo of some guy robbing a bank the image quality is so poor?
The quality of the images of these two guys was better than some pics you see. But in this day and age why are they so grainy and generally poor.

Everything is usually down to cost, but I get better quality video out of my $80 Kodak
