I know the Boston bombers
FOX News ^

Posted on 04/21/2013 5:27:56 AM PDT by bryan999

I started getting facials from Zubeidat Tsarnaeva (pronounced Zu-bey-da) six years ago when I was 17 at a spa in the Boston area. She soon after left the spa and contacted my mom to have us start coming to her house, at 410 Norfolk St., right on the line of Cambridge and Watertown.

All throughout my senior year of high school and four years of college I went to her house about three times a year. The last time I went to the house was in December and January of 2011/2012.

The first few years the third-floor apartment was often crowded with her two sons, now identified as the alleged Boston bombers, and her two daughters, one of which was around my age. It was definitely not a glamorous place to get a facial, as the “spa” was set up in her living room, and during these years the family expanded.

Did any of these people who knew them bother to call the police once their pictures had been published?

There’s little doubt SOMEONE helped police figure out who they were after the pics were released. Many people had to know them. The police seemed not to. Then they became the subjects of police pursuit. SOMEONE tipped the cops. Basic common sense. Not rocket science.

These tips are confidential, as to WHO is the identity of the tipster.

To protect them.

Well, in defense of all that - when the pics were FIRST published, they were a bit blurry. You may recall all the speculation, even right here on FR... everyone here thought one of the bombers was this missing Che Guevera-loving Brown student from Pennsylvania.

It wasn’t until really late on Friday that we had clearer photographs going around. I can’t recall when the real names came out, but it wasn’t THAT long ago all things considered.

It’s early Sunday AM on the east coast. Like the above post says - certainly some people must have stepped forward.. and I’m sure this particular woman has talked to the FBI (etc) by now... and this is a fairly lengthy report.

In the article it mentions that the author's mother called the FBI to report that she recognized them from having seen them at their mother's home.

It couldn’t have been too many, if any, because 24 hours later these guys were still on the loose and they only got caught by accident.

When my mom called me earlier today telling me about how she had seen the picture of Dzhokar this morning and called the FBI, I couldn’t believe it.

Between 2008 and 2012 I got to know her pretty well. During those 2-3 hours I spent a lot of time asking her about her personal life, background and her family. (I’m a writer and tend to ask people exhaustive questions about their personal lives, especially as interesting a character as this.)

Not a great writer. It would be nice if she explained what a facial is.

...and I hope that any knowledge I have shared about the family can help investigators get to the bottom of these terrorist actions and not cause any further harm.

If I read the story correctly the mother the writer of this story called the FBI when she saw the photo on TV

Interesting mug shot.

The article mentioned that she’d put on a hajib when she’d leave the apartment to attach a visitor parking sticker. So is that a hajib she’s wearing in the mug shot? Obviously if that’s the case they made her remove the head garb part - some of you may remember reports of controversy over driver’s license photos for observant female muslims.

And if she was wearing a hajib, it would be interesting to know if it played any part in her crime - did she try to lift merchandise in a bag she was carrying, or in a bag she was wearing?

Around 2:45 on Friday morning I turned on the tv and then I was watching the twitter feed. Apparently, the Boston PD announced two suspects’ names on their scanner which were NOT these brothers. I watched until 5 am...went back to bed. When I got up at 7, I was shocked. The suspects were two entirely different people. I personally think that once they killed Suspect #1 and took him to the hospital, he was able to be positively identified. That’s when they really knew who they were dealing with. Since he was an immigrant, they probably had his fingerprints in their system. I still think if he hadn’t died, they wouldn’t have known who they were looking for at that time and still may have been looking for those other two guys....I haven’t heard about this at all in the media. BUT that’s what I read during the night. It may be that the FBI just got lucky!

Since the FBI had interviewed Tamarlan, wouldn’t it be possible that they had a file and photo relating to him? And if so, his identity could be found pretty quickly with a face matching app.

No.

The photos/videos were released late Thursday afternoon. A few HOURS later one of the perps was dead, the other wounded and hiding, leading to 24 hours of terror for Boston and surrounds until they found him cowering in a boat.

Those guys were IDd almost immediately.

If she’s lying around “half naked” as she mentions in the article, it sounds like she was undergoing more than a facial - maybe a massage?

Speaking of the headjob or hatejibb or whatever, does it seem to anyone that this family was settling in, and then, very quickly, CAME UNDER THE INFLUENCE of a real muzzie head-case cleric?

I say find the black-clad a-hole cleric, and hang him up to dry.

If they were treated as they treat others, torture and public beheading are pro-forma.

After reading this I have thoughts about the Uncle. He was so quick to distance himself from the family - going so far as to call his nephews ‘losers’. He then seemed to walk back his disgust. I wonder if the whole family shares the 9/11 truther views and his initial reaction was a ruse. I do believe the hate for America was incubated in the home. It would be interesting to know what the father has been up to in Russia during his ‘extended’ visits.

I don't remember seeing any news coverage of the SWAT teams descending on the apartment where these two lived. Did I miss it???

But you are right -- it wasn't 24 hours.

A facial is having your face steamed, putting different stuff on your face to have your pores opened, having your pores dug out with a facial spoon, a pretty uncomfortable process also time consuming, then having your face nourished, fed and moisturized............helps those who have zits and don’t want to take all that medication the docs want to give you for zits, also super cleanses your face and you can even get your skin sanded..........there, does that help?

410 Norfolk St. is actually on the Cambridge/Somerville line, not by Watertown.

Yeah, I think that’s correct... I don’t know why bit of info is edited like that.

Her actual blog has that correct. I discovered the blog after I posted this - otherwise I would have posted the blog entry.

Want to really prosecute justice on this delusional brain-washed mother-of-monsters? Somebody begin to check her TAXES for those years of ‘facials’ from her home... wanna bet she’s never claimed income? or at best, kept ‘records’?

IRS get on her like a tick.

It's worse than that. Apparently this family got political asylum, claiming it wasn't safe for them to be in Russia because of their political views. So they settle in Cambridge, probably get housing, welfare, medical care and education. The younger son got a $2500 scholarship from the City of Cambridge. Mother works at home taking money under the table so she can continue getting welfare and housing assistance and they travel back and forth to Russia.

Do you think any of the residents of Cambridge feel stupid for having supported these liars, felons and terrorists?

Not only that, in order for political asylum to be granted, one’s life has to be in danger. If I were in asylum, I certainly wouldn’t be going back in forth to the country that was supposedly a threat to my life.

I’m not understanding why father brought family here & abandon them.

NOTHING from the author discussing how her family contributed to under-the-table income, knowing a nutcase was operating with no business license under filthy conditions, etc etc.

Yet she mentions the seedy neighborhood!

The residents probably don’t feel stupid for being duped.

It wasn’t until really late on Friday that we had clearer photographs going around.

I don't think that's accurate.

The bombings happened Monday, 4/15/2013.

The Feds news conference was on Thursday, April 18 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern.

If I'm not mistaken, the FEDs revealed these pics above just hours after their news conference. In fact, it's being speculated the Feds had these images at the time of their news conference. Additionally, during the news conference, the feds and the media clearly implied they had additional evidence and images.

If this is in fact true, why were they not made available during the news conference?

Furthermore, it's also a safe bet the Feds had the video they broadcasted on their Thursday 4/18/2013 news conference, on the evening of the bombing, which occurred Monday 4/15/2013. They didn't go public with the video until Thursday, hoping someone would be able to ID the suspect.

If this is all true, why in hell did the Feds wait *days* to go public with the video for help?

Also, did the Feds already have in their possession better images of the suspects and declined to reveal them at their news conference? This is a legitimate question based on the fact the Feds had the video on Monday night and very likely were able to determine which two individuals in the video planted the bombs by Monday night.
