I am not sympathetic to the meme of the younger brother being pulled along by the dominant older brother. And, it is entirely due to my impression of him in the photos from the marathon. He seems to have a slight smirk on his face. He knows he is dropping of an explosive in the midst of the crowd he is walking through and his expression is not one of fear, or concentration, or even malevolence...it's a bit of a smile at the corners of his lips.

He finds it amusing, or an inside joke of some kind. ANd reports that he laid the bomb down and looked that man in the eye as he did it.

He knew what he was doing.

The older brother may have had a narcissistic reason, but the the younger seemed to be doing it for kicks.

Granted....that is a high level of speculation and narrative on my part...which could be completely wrong.

It's just the impression I was left with.
