If you haven't seen this, find it! He's talking with reporters. He is really angry about how these two have shamed his family, shamed their country of origin, shamed their faith. I hope people recognize this outrage and don't bother this family or those like them.

He feels they are "losers" because they've had great opportunity to do something with their lives but have chosen this cowardly way to behave.

I feel so bad for him and his family. They are going to be targeted just for being associated.

I'm now seeing that there are *2* uncles here in Maryland. One was interviewed and is in disbelief his nephews could be involved. The other uncle is the one I saw interviewed who said the photos are of his nephews and he's beyond outraged by their behavior.

I feel bad for the family too. It's heartbreaking all around and so senseless!

I think I'm just a little bit in love with the uncle. I guess they played the interview from earlier. He is very passionate about his appreciation for the USA. As they played the clip, the onsite reporter was asked if they had been able to talk more with him. He said, "he came out about 10 minutes ago and we thought he wanted to talk to us some more. But he was going over to apologize to the neighbors for all the commotion (the news crews) on the street.". Then apparently the neighbor joined the uncle and went into his house with him.

Their aunt was just interviewed also. She lives in Toronto. She said that when she saw the photos last night, she knew it was her nephews and immediately called the FBI number on the screen.

She also said "shit" a lot when talking about YouTube videos. She was angry and just as animated in her way of speaking as their uncle. There are also 2 sister of the suspects. She said that she doesn't know where they live, but thought they were also in Boston. An earlier report said that one was being interviewed by the FBI in New York. I didn't hear where the other one is.

I know she's got to be stressed but the aunt seems so arrogant to me. I actually changed the channel when she started berating the media members saying, "You're not listening. I wish you were a lawyer like me because when I say something I mean it," or something like that. If someone asks a question to clarify she chastises them. It's not a courtroom, for God's sake.

I agree. A little bit of her went a long way!

The FBI doesn't owe her anything. If she needs convincing that is her problem.

Erica? Did someone say that the FBI owes her something? I'm confused by your comment.

Thanks for the link, Mallie. In a similar vein, I was talking to my mom today. She said, "When I saw his nose I thought, I hope he's not Armenian!"
