Far far more likely they were part of a domestic network who went to Boston specifically because it was Patriots Day there. Lexington and Concord.
90% on that. 10% on something else. Nothing is of course certain at this point; the timing, the age of these guys, where they chose to attack, point to domestic and far right. The bomb type points more to the Middle East, so I'd allocate 9 of the remaining 10% to that possibility. 1% other, which would be your scenario. In my opinion, not high probability.
