Nice catch by Ace: The three who were arrested today in connection with the Boston bombing disposed of items that belonged to the Tsarnaev brothers. Heres a list.
Three days after the blasts, on April 18, the three men allegedly removed Tsarnaevs backpack, which contained fireworks that had been opened and emptied of gunpowder, from his dormitory room.
Suspecting that Tsarnaev was involved in the bombing after authorities released surveillance video of the bombers that afternoon, the trio decided to throw the backpack and fireworks in the trash because they did not want to get Tsarnaev into trouble, according to an affidavit filed by an FBI agent in support of the charges.
On Friday, authorities recovered the backpack from a landfill in New Bedford. Inside, agents found fireworks, a jar of Vaseline, and a UMass Dartmouth homework assignment sheet, among other things. The homework sheet was for a class in which Tsarnaev was enrolled, the agent said in the sworn statement. It wasnt clear from the affidavit what happened to the laptop.
I used to fool around with fireworks and explosives when I was in high school. A buddy was into model rocketry and aeronautical engineering, he had a homemade cannon that we used to launch golf balls, he designed his own rocket engines and charge packs to launch the golf balls with the cannon. It was all innocent fun and he eventually made a productive career out of it all. I ended up at NASA, for what its worth, though not as a rocket scientist. During those high school explorations, I learned quite a bit about how rocket engines work, how to mix and mill black powder on the cheap, all kinds of interesting things....

My question is why hadn’t the Feds already executed a search warrant of his room and removed the backpack already?
Potassium chlorate and sulphur can be used to make percussion caps, a mixture of them will detonate on impact.
I'm not revealing anything here that you couldn't learn in high school chemistry "way back then". I suppose we were being educated for a different world.
Ummm, because they’re Muslims?
The actions of the three buddies may not be collaboration but simply liberal thinking. I know my buddy, this cute, funny, diverse person is an okay guy. Therefore those horrible government people who are putting his picture on TV are wrong. We know our fun, lovable, diverse friend has some things that might look bad when those horrible, conservative, racist FBI guys find them. Therefore, so our buddy can’t be falsely accused by the racists, we’ll just remove this innocent and unrelated material from his room.
This may be nothing more than liberals living in their own dream world.
Because the Atrocity was planned, and helped by the
DO”J” and the DHS and the Moslem White Hut.
There was no interest in finding ANYTHING?
exactly, We pay ultra thousands of folks for security and they just can not ultimately do it.
Boston Bombing Ping!
vaseline is highly combustable. i use it with firestarter. it catches immediately.
This was before they knew his name, they only had his image from the surveillance footage at that point.
