In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
Usually, if they think they know who the guy is and have some leads about where to find him they won't release pictures for fear of tipping him off. They tend to release pictures if they don't know who he is or where he is and don't have good leads. I see three possibilities for what happened yesterday.
1. The info just got confused. A source said they had "got the guy," meaning simply they had found a picture of him but not intending to suggest that they knew who he was or had him in custody, but the press misinterpreted that to mean the guy was identified and caught.
2. They initially thought they had positively identified the guy but later found they were wrong.
3. They do think they know who the guy is, but had a change of heart about saying anything because they wanted more time to gather evidence.
I think they have the guy. I think they're peppering him with questions, etc, to see if there is a connection with the Ricin situation from Memphis. Someone knows they have the guy, relayed the info to a news source, and it shouldn't have been leaked.
Menino is all but saying they have the guy.
If this is a domestic right wing nutjob situation (sort of smells like it), it may be a deeper cell than perceived, so they may be working the guy over a bit and don't want too much heat with the process.
Seems awfully convenient that Sen Levin (D-MI), Wicker (D-MS), Shelby (D-AL) got packages and we just had the gun vote yesterday, with the Newtown families at the finish line of the marathon.
Seems too convenient. AL, MS and MI all have LARGE populations of extremists who like their guns.
By the way, I am embarrassed as an American that the Senate didn't pass very logical and simple gun legislation.
You want an example as to what the problems are with our political system, lobbying, money, the need for term limits, etc, look no further than that disgusting 54-46 vote block on a basic and sensical run regulation yesterday.
An absolute disgrace.
Every single American should look on line to see how their Senators voted and if yours voted against it, you're (not you, specifically) are a moron for not voting them out of office in 2014.
Lobbying should be fully transparent and regulated (should be broadcast on CSPAN and the internet with all discussions in full disclosure), term limits need to a reality NOW and give more power back to the president so we can actually see our system work better.
Rand Paul should be beaten into a pulp. Anyone who votes for that guy should be arrested.
Fully agree on the embarrassing lack of action on guns Rusty. Sadly, not surprised though.
