Who are these guys???

The Seattle Post Intelligencer and the Seattle Times both refused to print this photograph of two individuals who have made multiple trips on several of the Puget Sound ferries over the past couple of weeks.

The trips themselves weren't all that suspicious. The activities associated with these two mid-eastern appearing males while they made the trips evidently were.

According to witnesses who observed and at times interacted with them, these two reportedly inquired about the structure of the ferries, the routes, the passenger loads, the schedules, security, rush hours and other less than likely things that other ferry passengers wouldn't normally inquire about.

In fact, the information gleaned from those observations and interactions was passed along to the FBI and piqued the Fed's interest. The FBI, in turn passed copies of the photograph shown here to major news outlets located in the fine state of Washington in the interest of public safety.

According to reports, several witnesses were concerned enough by the "suspicious passenger's" activities and inquiries to take it upon themselves to photograph the pair.

Several of the local televised news sources posted the photo on the air along with the accompanying story, adding that the FBI is simply trying to locate the pair so they can chat with them. All the FBI wants to do is identify them and determine the basis of their curiousities and to establish what their intentions are.

The FBI... they simply want to do their job!

...and the Seattle Post Intelligencer and the Seattle Times both refused to publish the picture. Both papers claimed the subjects haven't done anything wrong.

Nothing's been proven, no charges have been levied, they have done nothing wrong. No publishing of pictures. It's as simple as that.

Yet they publish Michael Vick pictures. They publish Barry Bonds pictures. They published Gary Ridgeway pictures... and oh so many more!

All before anyone is charged, tried, convicted, etc.!!!

Those faces sell papers.

The picture of these two guys won't. They're not media celebrities... not yet!

I'm inclined to believe the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post Intelligencer are certainly not acting in the best interests of public safety. I'm inclined to believe the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post Intelligencer are serving their own special, skewed political interests by not aiding in the search for two individuals who, during a time of war act suspiciously and deserve to be interviewed, at least by our FBI.

I'm inclined to believe that the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post Intelligencer are both on the wrong side of this nation's best interests!

Let's hope those two who were photographed truly have no sinister desires. Let's hope they're truly, simply curious as to what makes our ferry system work so well.

Nothing more!

As for the Seattle Times and the Seattle Post Intelligencer... well, I've refused to read their crap for years now. I opt to get my news from unbiased, well informed, public oriented sources.

I can only hope others would drop their subscriptions of these long time America hating rags as well.

They're not worthy of wrapping my fish... among other things.
