Alex Jones: Suspects "look Israeli"

The conspiracy broadcaster wonders if the Jewish state may have had something to do with the Boston bombings

In a video posted early this morning laying out a baroque narrative we can't make heads or tails of, conspiracy broadcaster Alex Jones came dangerously close to espousing a Jewish conspiracy theory, speculating that the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing might be Israelis.

Claiming that he had identified the suspect who remains at large, Jones boasted, "the media doesn't even have this yet. The FBI will probably give it to them in a day." In fact, the AP and cable news networks identified the two suspects just two or three hours later as Chechen brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

But despite supposedly knowing the ID of the suspect, Jones wasn't above speculating about their nationality. "These guys kind of look like Israelis. I'm not saying Israel is involved in it, we don't have any evidence of that. It's just that they kind of look Israeli," he said while pointing to an image of the suspects on a computer screen. He added that they could be "North African" or "Spanish-Muslims." He did not speculate they were Chechens.

He also called MIT, where the suspects reportedly killed a police officer, "mind control central."
