Another day, another set of questions about the many discrepancies in this evolving story about the Boston Marathon Islamist terrorist attack. Here are just a few:
After authorities claimed that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev engaged in a shootout with police from his hiding place in a boat, they now say that no weapons were found. Dzhokhar was unarmed, even though early news reports claimed he had “several weapons.”
Quite obviously, the fact that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was unarmed puts to rest any prior claim that he tried to shoot himself in the mouth to commit suicide.
After federal authorities testified that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was not on any watch lists, now they say he was on at least two watch lists, if not three. Russian authorities had reported Tamerlan Tsarnaev to US intelligence agencies (both the FBI and the CIA) at least twice in 2011 (March and November, if not also in September). He was placed into the Terrorist Identities Datamart Environment (TIDE), a “highly classified central database of people it views as potential terrorists.” He was also placed on the Terrorist Screening Database (TSDB), “maintained by the Homeland Security Department’s Customs and Border Protection bureau which is used to screen people crossing U.S. land borders and entering at airports or by sea.” Janet Napolitano testified that the system “pinged” when Tamerlan Tsarnaev left for seven months to visit a hotbed of Islamic terrorism in Dagestan because he was in the TECS “platform”; but the system did not ping when he returned, because by then (we’re told) the “intelligence” agencies had concluded that he was no threat, even though the Russians “pushed” in a “warning letter” to have him listed as a potential terrorist because of his increasing radicalization and the fact that he used different dates of birth and aliases.
After news reports stated that the Tsarnaevs had a regular arsenal of weapons (an M4 carbine, two handguns, and a BB gun) now we’re told that there was “a single firearm” recovered at the scene of the shootout. This weapon was a 9mm handgun, not an M4 “assault rifle”.
Numerous stories said that the parents of the suspects would come to the USA as early as today; now we hear that the father will come but the mother will stay in Russia, perhaps because as soon as she sets foot on US soil, she’ll be arrested:
She faces three felony charges for alleged shoplifting and property damage in Massachusetts in 2012, according to Natick District Court. She jumped bail, and there has been an arrest warrant for her since October, the court’s clerk magistrate Brian Kearney said.
Here are a few questions I have:
Right before the bomb exploded, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was talking on a cell phone. Given that the Tsarnaev family are reported to have taken advantage of multiple social welfare programs over the years, one wonders whether both brothers had Obamaphones. Enquiring minds want to know what taxpayer monies potentially funded these Islamic terrorist attacks against us.
Did either or both of the Obamas visit the Saudi national “student” in the hospital, either before or after Secretary of State Kerry had a closed-door meeting with the Saudi ambassador and Barack Obama had a unexpected encounter with Saudi bigwigs in the WH?
Exactly WHO is the Abdul Rahman Al-Harbi who visited the White House multiple times over the Obama presidency?
Is he or is he not the Saudi national “student” of the same name who was at the scene of the Boston Marathon bombing and was allegedly injured and was originally reported to be a “person of interest” in the terrorist attack?
Who were the other Saudi nationals who were wounded in the explosion, seen with Al-Harbi, and were ANY of these men on terror watch lists? How did any of them get into the country? Were they fast-tracked, unvetted, as VIPs? Are any of them currently “armed and dangerous?”
What is the government going to do about the estimated 15,000 Muslims who came to the US on “student visas” but never showed up at school?
Is the reason our “intelligence” agencies do not adequately follow or investigate Muslims because they are intimidated from above by a president and his administration? Is it political correctness run amok, as suggested by the fact that this administration labeled the Fort Hood Islamic terrorist attack “workplace violence“?
Update 04/25/13 12:37 p.m.: I forgot this one: Who brought in the magistrate and the U.S. Attorney to STOP the FBI interrogation of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and why? He was cooperating, but “immediately” clammed up upon being read his Miranda rights. The FBI was not amused:
Two officials with knowledge of the FBI briefing on Capitol Hill said the FBI was against stopping the investigators’ questioning and was stunned that the judge, Justice Department prosecutors and public defenders showed up, feeling valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed as a result.
