Focus Turns to Hunt for Bombing Motive

WATERTOWN, Mass.—Investigators in the Boston Marathon bombing case shifted their focus Saturday to hunting for a motive and preparing charges after apprehending a 19-year-old college student Friday night.

The charges against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who remained hospitalized with severe injuries, could be filed this weekend, but it might take longer as law enforcement officials continue investigating numerous crime scenes in and around Boston. Investigators were also eager to talk to Mr. Tsarnaev, who was listed in serious condition after being badly injured early Friday morning in a firefight with police officers that left his 26-year-old brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, dead.

Investigators have alleged that the two brothers carried out the Boston Marathon bombings that killed three and injured more than 175 on Monday.

Authorities gave no indication of what motivated the brothers. Their family roots stretch to the Russian republic of Chechnya, which has been a wellspring of terrorism over the years.

Gosh. The FBI, the CIA, the Boston police, and five of the Wall Street Journal’s most brilliant reporters—DEVLIN BARRETT, GARY FIELDS, JOSH DAWSEY, EVAN PEREZ and JENNIFER LEVITZ—are all working hard on this problem. But they just can’t figure it out!

and these powerful despots purport to be clueless.
The fact is, they are behind it, at least as enablers.

I predict it will be thrown out on a technicality due to the Miranda right issue. He will be freed and eventually have his own reality show. People who feel sorry for his pain and struggle will shower him with money and friendship. Then he will be hired as a professor at Columbia.

The motive is Islam.

The 20,000 terrorist acts that Islam has done since 9/11 are only a clue to the evil this thing called Islam is.

to get a better clue look at how Muslims/Islam genocided 2 million christian Armenians in 1915 . Where did Hitler get the idea for exterminating Jews? from this Islamic Armenian genocide. He said “ no one remembers the Armenians”.

This is what they ALL have planned for us. The “moderate” Muslims are just the more patient ones that wait till they get enough nuclear bombs and technological advantage ( ie ICBMS, etc.)

http://www.gendercide.org/case_armenia.html

The Armenian genocide was one of the most massive “root-and-branch” exterminations ever carried out against a defenseless people. In 1915, as World War I raged, the Turkish government (ruler of the Ottoman Empire) decided upon the systematic extermination of most of the male Armenian population, and the forced deportation of the remainder, mostly women, children, and the elderly. The deportation became a death march, with extreme violence and deprivation leading to the death of most of the survivors of the initial gendercide — as was intended. By the time the exhausted and traumatized survivors reached refuge in neighbouring countries, up to three-quarters of the entire Ottoman Armenian population had been exterminated.

I know Muslims personally and I have read , trust me Muslims are evil, you have no idea how evil Islam is

Look at this: This was posted Monday on a BB and posted Tuesday on Freep (where I found out about it) by Freeper Texascajun. Just so you do not think I am BSing you, here is the thread....Look at post #78 and the date...

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3008859/posts?q=1&;page=51

So far everything this anonymous guy has said has come true..

"..pin this on male late teens early 20's.."

"..wont find suspect till later this week...raid will occur on Friday"

Call me crazy, call me a conspiracy nut, but I do not trust ANYTHING coming from this administration which is led by an ADMITTED foreign born twice unconstitutionally elected Kenyan. If our own elections are subverted, our own constitution spat on, what makes people think the would not go to this length to ban gunpowder which = ban on bullets which = ban on guns? Absolutely they would do it!

Let's just wait and see what happens. Let's see if they bring up the NRA, let's see if they bring up the reloading powder/ gunpowder. And BTW: Just why are the relatives of these two saying they were set up? Our statist media is saying "He was a Muslim radical"...Oh really, show me the proof because I can't find anything on that.

CONSPIRACY THEORY
Maybe it was an assassination attempt on the Saudi guy? What are the odds of the Saudi guy just being there to get blown up?
The explosion gets blamed on the dead Saudi and case closed (not taking into accout the hundreds of pictures.)

Please stop with the conspiracy theories. This has been covered non-stop since Monday, and there is video of at least one of the young men planting a bomb. There are also hundreds of photos of the two brothers, near the finish line, taken by ordinary folks who happened to be there.

The FBI did drop the ball on the older brother, and it would be interesting to know why, but there is ample evidence of their responsibility for the bombings.

“Authorities gave no indication of what motivated the brothers. “

Uh, because a very large percentage of the Muslim world hates Western civilization and wants to destroy it, but are too cowardly to do anything about it other than bomb innocent women and children?

Albrecht Ammon, a downstairs-apartment neighbor of Tamerlan Tsarnaev in Cambridge, said in an interview that the older brother had strong political views about the United States. Ammon quoted Tsarnaev as saying that the U.S. uses the Bible as “an excuse for invading other conuntries.”

Couldn’t believe this was in an AP story, clearest sign yet that scumbag #1 was a muslim jihadist, they can’t deny it no matter how much they want to
