Federal Bureau of Investigation
ORLANDO, FL - MAY 22: An Orlando Police officer speaks with media outside of a complex apartment where a suspected friend of the Boston bombers was shot and killed by FBI on May 22, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. Ibragim Todashev was being questioned by the FBI about his ties to the Boston Marathon bombing suspects when he was killed after attacking the agent.
The officials say they have enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists — but not enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers. So the officials say the men will remain at large while the FBI gathers more evidence.
I'm just glad they were on top of all of it ... They [FBI agents] apparently knew things none of us even suspected, because they've been here and we didn't even know they were here.
We have been reaching out to Troutman Police Department as well as Statesville PD and the FBI to make sure this may or may not be related to themMore quotes »
