They look like likely accomplices to me.
The "Authorities" couldn't smell shit if you dropped it in their hand.
From the Washington Post:
The FBI said Wednesday afternoon that it was seeking “two unknown individuals” — the two men viewed on surveillance footage encountering the bomb that did not detonate in Manhattan on Saturday night.
In this footage, the two men are seen finding a suitcase, removing the explosives from it and then leaving with just the suitcase, officials said. Police have said that the two men are being viewed as witnesses, not suspects.
But in an announcement sent out, the FBI said agents are “interested in speaking to these individuals and recovering the luggage.” “We have no reason to believe that they’re connected,” James R. Waters, the New York Police Department’s chief of counterterrosim, said.
“I cannot stress enough. They are witnesses at this time. ”
Waters said investigators have pursued more than 100 leads in the case. He said the improvised explosive removed from the suitcase “was a very shock sensitive device,” adding of the two men who removed it: “They’re very, very lucky.”GO READ THE WHOLE THING.
The two that the FBI are seeking appear to be of muhammedan persuasion.
