New Reports: Suspects Are Brothers, From Chechnya (or Russia, Near Chechnya);
May Have Spent Time in Turkey;
Are Permanent Legal Residents Who've Been In US for a Year

Glad to know immigration is working as it should. Given that it's handling its current tasks so swimmingly, I think we should throw another 20 million cases in their laps. I believe they will rise to the challenge.

This new information is via AP and Pete Williams.

The Sunil Tripathi information appears irrecoverably wrong at this point, and I apologize for that. And to his family.

I don't know why the cops would have said his name over the scanner -- one guess is that the cops themselves did not know the names of the terrorists, but had read speculation about "Sunil Tripathi," and so when they saw White Hat they identified him as such.

Same might go for the other name-- they might have had sketchy intelligence, and called the other guy "Mike Muguti" (I'm too tired to remember) based on some tidbit they had from somewhere, even though they weren't actually sure it was him.

Dead Brother ID'd: Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19.
