MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) -- The father of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing claims that his son who is still on the loose is a smart and accomplished young man.

Anzor Tsarnaev spoke with The Associated Press by telephone from the Russian city of Makhachkala on Friday after police said one of his sons, 26-year-old Tamerlan, had been killed in a shootout and the other, Dzhokhar, was being intensely pursued.

"My son is a true angel," the elder Tsarnaev said. "Dzhokhar is a second-year medical student in the U.S. He is such an intelligent boy. We expected him to come on holidays here."

Or an enabler.

I believe that would be 'tool'.

Dad, you can now expect him to soon be dead or headed for life in prison without parole. But who knows, perhaps Hussein will show him leniency.

IIRC, Mohamed Atta’s father said roughly the same things about him...

A fellow student at Cambridge Rindge & Latin School said Dzhokhar is a student at UMass-Amherst.

As a father, I have to say I can sympathize and if he is in denial. I can see how that could happen.

Yes, that's why I stated it as I did. I appreciate your experience.

Something was lost in translation. He means his son is a true black-hearted angel of death - and that is what makes him proud.

The sons might be the tools.

With the little info in this article, I tend to cut the father some slack.

From what I’ve read elsewhere, his son’s been here 5 or 6 years. That kind of time in a foreign country can change a person, especially one in their 20s.

He may have been a good kid when he left, and been radicalized once he got here.

Not unlikely he came here not speaking the language and with few contacts. He would have been an easy target to convert.

Wouldn’t be the first father who’s child went off to college and ended up radically different.

Angel for Allah is a demon for the rest of us, apparently.

This is Obama.. he'll bow to him, give him a private jet out of the country, and make all of the blame fall on his political enemies.

Chances are the father knows a lot and is also a Muslim sympathizer at the least...I'm equating angel with "martyr".

I'm sure Putin has sent us a 500 page brief on the brothers.

He’s just misunderstood and evil, white American gun culture made him do it.

It strikes me odd that daddy had no comment on the currently “useless” dead son...he is proud of his “living” terrorist son....

F@ck dad’s confused emotions concerning his evil little angel on the run...

What does daddy think of the dead prick of a son?
