Did bombing suspects use timer or remote?

In an interview with Anderson Cooper, former FBI Special Agent Jeff Beatty analyzes clues in the Boston Marathon attack related to how the device was detonated and the suspects' behavior.

The FBI is asking for the public's help. If you recognize the suspects in the photos release by authorities, call 1-800-CALL-FBI.

    SHAME ON US – WE DROPPED THE BALL!!! If the 1st bomber was questioned by authorities a year or two ago for possibly terrorist activity (as was WARNED and reported to us by the Russians), then why wasn't he on the radar screen? At minimum, they should have had him in their terrorist database with his PICTURE and listed as living in the Boston area. Then BEFORE releasing the bombing pix to the public they could have compared the bombing pix to the ones in their database (all the people known to have been involved in possible terrorist activity AND to be living in the Boston area). After all how many could that be????? They would have had a match and they could have apprehended (stealth-like) the bombers before anyone else was killed or hurt. The MIT security officer would NOT have been killed and the other police officers would NOT have been injured. It seems to me like we dropped the ball. Really, how good is our anti-terrorist program?????
