Ambushing of terrorists: Theories justified?

On July 17, someone told us theories behind the bombings at JW Marriott and Ritz-Carlton. That guy said he was a target of terrorism, and that the terrorists might not the same network we already familiar with. They might be linked to presidential election and the disputed results.
That guy tried to convince public that he was one of the targets of terrorism attacks, showing some pictures of how his picture had been the target of shootings in the training camps.
Few hours ago, police shot to death two suspected fugitives of 2004 bombing at Australian Embassy in their "transit place" in Jatiasih, Bekasi, about five kilometers from Cikeas, West Java province. Media reported endlessly that police found at least 500 kilogram of explosive materials, a car to be used in a scheduled suicide bombing (reportedly in two weeks time).
Media also reported that the group has two targets: a house in Cikeas and the State Palace. Timing: August 17, commemoration of Independence Day.
National Police Chief Bambang Hendarso Danuri told the press today that President SBY's private residence in Cikeas, Bogor, was one of the targets of suicide bombing scheduled after August 17. Danuri said Noordin came to Jatiasih after the July 17 bombings. "Why they rented the house in Jatiasih which is only 12 minutes from the President's house?" Danuri asked. He provided the answer himself, saying "because according to testimonies and legal facts, President SBY's house was a target."
Such reports and statements would "justify" the theories we learnt on July 17. Isn't that too good to be true? How about Noordin?
Well, media reported Noordin M. Top had been killed in Temanggung after 18 hours of gunfires. He was alone in the house, the reports said. But Danuri has yet to confirm whether the killed "terrorist" in Temanggung is Noordin M. Top or not. 
Intelligence observer Dyno Chressbon believes the guy is not Noordin M. Top after analyzing pictures he got from police on the death body.
"The sketches and publicized pictures of Noordin are different by 90%. The dead person is more of an ordinary bandit than Noordin M Top. So, better wait the DNA test," Chressbon said
(PS: Police transported the death body from Yogyakarta airport Adi Sucipto to Jakarta's Halim Perdanakusuma Airport using Tommy Winata's Transwisata airplane.)
Still, president SBY praised the "job" and "operation" by police in the past few days. He asked people to rally behind police. Well, definitely! But the most important thing, police shall be honest and professional in the operations, not only to justify political theories or the new theory that SBY was a target because he ordered the execution of three Bali bombers.
