They were detonated not with cellphone, but with a toy car remote control.

Third bomber? From Saudi Arabia maybe? Spirited out of the country? It's a very strong possibility given his ties to terrorists.

Misha?

Quote
“This transmitter that was used out of a toy car, that's a very sophisticated pressure cooker bomb that you don't see every day," McCaul said. "My judgment is they had training performed by either an individual or individuals who are still at large.”

So FBI is looking for Misha I guess. That's fine if they wanna call him a former Christian but I don't think a true Christian would convert to a cult of violence.

Quote
To date all that is known about him is that he is an Armenian man in his 30s with distinctive red beard and that he has disappeared - no longer living in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area.
However, family members have been telling reporters that in the years before the Boston marathon bombings, Tamerlan, 26, fell under the strong influence of a new friend, a Christian who converted to Islam and who steered the religiously apathetic young man towards adopting strong Islamic views.

My concern about the toy remote triggering device is that there were two bombs.  How far apart were the bombs?  Did they have to use two separate transmitters given the proximity? Most of the cheap remotes don't have a great range so I guess they could have set the bombs off the same remote and spaced them so that they would blow at the same time but when the second didn't blow, the trigger man had to get closer to set it off.  My guess is that they used a separate guy to run the trigger after they dropped the bombs and he got too close.

I know with my helicopter ( similar remote system ) it can fly out of range and I suspect the cars are the same.  Interesting.  Strip out the battery and pc board, attach it to a proper fuse system, and you are good to go boom.  (Wonders how much the pressure cooker cuts down the signal).   



Should one a man of wisdom meet
who points out faults and gives reproof,
who lays a hidden treasure bare,
with such a sage should one consort.
Consorting so is one enriched
and never in decline.
