    Maybe we have the wrong agency involved. The IRS routinely finds one person in a country of 310 million.

    Only when viewed with perfect 20/20 hindsight. Consider all the factors the FBI must consider in this situation.

    A city where he has ZERO help, from anyone and no one has seen hide, nor hair of him. I would say he's doing a damn fine job of escape and evasion.

    I think "grenade" is a generic term for throwable explosives.

    Just a comment on the Islamic extremists angle that's being pushed. While it remains a possiblitly, I think any such conclusions are highly premature.

    Tamerlan appears to be a Muslim (possibly devout), but Dzhokhar doesn't appear to be overly religous or political. Furthermore, the Boston Marathon isn't the kind of target one would expect a Jihadist to attack. It's just hard to guess at a rational motivation from the information we have so far.

    And right there is the problem - action flicks are far from the reality of real life.

    Sad thing is, every would-be school shooter loser is going to be rethinking what it is they want to do for some cheap recognition.
    Yep aint that the truth. This is why terrorism is so effective. 2 guys tie up damn near the entire Boston police dept. the Massachusetts NG and several federal agencies. Well Al Qaida and the rest are looking at this and learning. This unlike 9/11 is an immanently repeatable which means we may get more of these type incidents. There are a lot of variations that would cause some major uproar. I am glad I live in a rural area. These twits just executed a almost textbook terrorist operation and have shown the rest of the loony's how effective it can be.

    police have to check every building, every alley, every nook and cranny that exists in the city.

    Don't tell me Arnold was really the governor of CA. I know it was just a cover. He's in Boston right now, with that grenade launcher, ready to make that scumbag pay.
