MAKHACHKALA, Russia - The father of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers said he was struggling to believe his sons were behind the twin blasts that killed three and injured more than 170.

“I’m planning to find the truth, justice,” said Anzor Tsarnaev during an interview at his home in the southern Russian republic of Dagestan. "I want facts, proof that this is all original because otherwise, anything could be set up."

"The FBI had been watching her oldest son when they were in the United States, she told Channel 4.

"They were monitoring him and I know that because I used to talk to them," she said. "They used to come to our house, like two, three times. And then my son Tamerlan used to tell me that he used to talk to them too, because they called me once and they wanted his number."

Actually I think that attitude is pretty typical of a Russian, having grown-up in a culture polluted by seven decades of brazen Soviet lies.

Why hasn’t the Russian Security Service yanked the parents into custody? Was Tamerlan allowed into Russia in order to let him lead authorities to Chechnyan terrotist leaders?

“I’m planning to find the truth, justice,” said Anzor Tsarnaev “

Correction : “I’m planning to find the truth, justice , and the American way “ , so says Superman .
I think dad Tsarnaev has been reading too many comic books, and confusing them with an encyclopedia

The father wants facts? Here is a fact. If you had not left your two sons alone and simply were a part of their lives, you might have gotten some idea what they were getting into and put a stop to it. You were absent and did not perform your paternal responsibilities. Much like Adam Lanza’s father who claimed he had “no role” in his son’s life.

I think you are right. The Middle East is like that as well. The media in those places are far less honest and accurate than even here. Go to Jordan or Egypt, for example, and you will find every bad thing in the peoples lives is blamed on nefarious conspiracies involving Israel, the US, or British Colonization.

I think part of the problem is the mosques teach an Islam that is infallible, that is better than all other religious, that looks down of people from other faiths - and yet these Islamic countries mostly suck. They are corrupt, uncompetitive, etc. The people are told by their Imam's that this is because the West is conspiring to hold Islam down. And that if they could rid themselves of the shackles of conspiracy theory after conspiracy theory, they'd be the greatest civilization in the world.

Hey Pops, when you come to the US, make sure you go by the hospital and visit the amputees that your son maimed. And while you’re at it go to the grave sites of the young children that your son killed. And by all means Pops, watch the live video of the people lying in pools of blood with body parts strewn everywhere. Yeah, your son is just a sweet innocent little boy.

Both my great-grandmother and grandmother escaped the evils of the Soviets back in the 1920s, and even after emigrating to the United States, they were always suspicious of the police.

I would say that this level of skepticism is not only healthy but necessary. The burden of proof should be on the accuser, and if the proof isn’t there, then someone’s rights were infringed upon.

That being said, the evidence made public is pretty damning, so please don’t take this post as a defense of the accused. I’m simply pointing out that many foreigners are suspicious of police states, and for good reason.

DEBKA had an article a few days back saying we (CIA?) recruited them to infilltrate al-queda and they turned on us (”double-agents”)....I think that is a highly likely scenario considering the free reign they were apperently given.

“They are gentle, like girls, they as soft in their character – soft,”

Girly men? Light in the loafers? mohammed would not be pleased.

This is an about face from his first interview when he came this close to admitting they'd done it and asked them to turn themselves in.

I suspect he's the one who led them down this road to radical islam and jihad.

What self-respecting male would deliberately describe his sons in such a way?

Taqqiya (albeit a ham-handed attempt).

Dagestan is 71% Mozlem. I wish I had the links to show it, but I found it very, very interesting that the younger bomber met with a friend the day after the bombings (it was an article here), the friend’s name begins with “B”. They talked about the bombings and the younger bomber said “these bombings happen all the time in Afghanistan and Iraq”.

The odd thing is in an artcle about the older bomber’s trip to Dagestan (again, I have no idea where the article is, linked somehwere here, I’m sure) some reporter went there very recently and talked to locals. A local man is quoted as saying the exact same thing - Something like “Why are Americans so upsetet - such bombings occur daily here and in A’stan and Iraq”.

So I think this talking point is important. Tamarlan spent some time in Dagestan supposedly helping his father remodel an apartment, but was seen in teh local radical mosque 6 times, meeting with a local radical Mozlem.

I also think (saw the headline this AM) that the younger bomber’s claim that they learned how to make bombs on the interent is a total lie, either by the y.b. or the investigatos. If the investigators are making it up, I would assume that is to keep the other members of the cell or ones like it thinking that nothing is known about them.

If you find it too scary to conceive, then you are among the ranks of weakminded fools who are half the reason why our governnment is now basically an arm of Islamic jihad.

Note my comment above about Tamarlan’s visit to Dagestan, where his father lives.

He went there to learn up on jihad, no dobut about ti, and his father knows it.

I am sure the CIA would not hire a 17 yr old. Two years ago the young one was only 17. And the older onee was an unstable nutcase even then, and was smoking pot and living the infidel life until just a few years ago, turned radical in IIRC 2009.

Of course I have no idea how/why/what the CIA does.

We can hope that's the case but the FBI, DHS and ICE are all looking dumb and dumber by the minute.

I know that part of the CIA hiring process involves extensive psych testing to establish stability. Doubtful many 17 year olds could pass that.
