This is alleged to be the suicide bomber in Bulgaria, who died when his backpack exploded on or near a bus of Israeli tourists. He’s a white dude with shoulder length hair. Take that, racial profilers.
Update: Might be a wig.
Update2: He was a detainee at Gitmo from 2002 to 2004. Also, might not be a wig after all.
Update3: Let’s add an allegedly to Update2.
Update4: Born in Sweden.
Update5: From @BreakingNews on Twitter: “US intelligence officials say no evidence former Guantanamo Bay detainee is suspected suicide bomber in Bulgaria bus attack - @NBCNews.” So! This is a very fluid situation.
The Bulgarian suicide bomber carried a fake Michigan driver’s license. His address? Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
