Search of Tsarnaevs' phones, computers finds no indication of accomplice, source says
NBCNEWS.com ^ | 4/23/13 | Michael Isikoff, Pete Williams and Erin McClam

Posted on 04/23/2013 3:11:52 PM PDT by BlatherNaut

A preliminary examination of the cellphones and computers used by the Tsarnaev brothers has found no indication of an accomplice in the Boston Marathon bombing, according to a U.S. counter-terrorism source briefed on the FBI investigation.

The source stressed that the investigation is ongoing, but bureau officials at this point appear increasingly confident that “nobody else was involved,” said the source.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has told investigators he and his brother acted alone, learned to build the pressure-cooker bombs over the Internet and were motivated by a desire to defend Islam because of "the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan," said the source, who has received multiple briefings on the probe.

Right. Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run.

Useful personas being manufactured since it couldn’t be a tea partier. It won’t be important to know why Russia warned us nor is there any reason to be concerned about the trip last year.

They so want to shift blame away from the influence of radical Islam to a disaffected youth meme.

Of course they didn’t.

Wow how quickly things change. A couple of days ago we learned about the sleeper cell of 12 individuals. I guess that’s not the story for today.

sounds like the boy is following the AQ manual published on internet last year closely.

Another thing is that all this info is coming third hand - not directly from the FBI. Is it fact or conjecture??

They weren’t bright enough to pull off an elaborate operation like this by themselves.

No wonder Big Sis was willing to admit they knew about this guy's 6-month vacation at a prime terrorist destination - they were planning to roll out this specious lone wolf tale for the nightly news. How comforting to hear that they did it alone and we are all safe now that they've been foiled. /S

It is conceivable that in this country he had no accomplices. That said, something helped radicalize this guy, and those trips abroad recently probably helped him along the way.

Golly Gee Willackers you mean they didn’t pay attention in terrorist class 101 when detection avoidance came up? That’s why the 19 year old kid’s school chums didn’t know what he was up to and why the brothers 2 used a secret location for cooking class.

You are correct, but until someone explains where their money came from, I doubt they acted alone.

It is true that they had a lot less money than bloggers have portrayed, but they still had plenty of expenses with little explanation for how they were paid.

It is literally impossible that these two young people had no accomplices. It is literally impossible that they all of a sudden woke up and on a whim said I want to use Alqueda style bombs to kill and maim innocent innocent Americans. This was planned. There was the trip to the visit Musim extremists and Jihadists in Russia, the warning from the Russians, the amount of explosives and guns the kids had. There is also their willingness to die for their cause.

Our government lies and can’t be trusted.

They probably used university computers, netcafe or public library computers and other user names- so easy to do and impossible to trace.
Did they check to see if they had library cards/student cards?
But university usually has cctv images of the computer users by date and their student sign-in handle.

I guess the investigators fail to notice how cheaply some cell phones, where you simply put some cash on an account for it, use it temporarily and toss out are. I bet if they checked existing cell phone and land line accounts of some others they are/should be watching they’d find calls made to them from Boston from some throw away cell phones.

I spent some time yesterday perusing the psycho jihadi bomber’s twitter account. I only read his tweets going back for about a year, but there’s much more than that.

Within just the most recent year I scanned, the little psycho must have mentioned at least a half dozen different times that he had “lost my cellphone”, or “my phone got turned off”, or “I got a new phone.” I’d like to think the FBI realizes that whatever phone(s) they’ve been able to locate and search are hardly the only phones the b*stard had over the past year.

Also, from scanning several recent months of the psyhco’s twitter account, one (of many) tweets that jumped out at me was the one where he boasted: “I’m a very good liar.”

Here’s the link if anyone else interested in spending some time reading it doesn’t have it yet: https://twitter.com/J_Tsar

If these were two welfare “yutes” from Cambridge it might be more believable that they acted alone, but it’s impossible to dismiss their background and activities. How likely is it that yahoo #1 travels to chechnya for 6 months, and then he comes back and unleashes this sneak al qaeda style attack without reference to the known terrorist he was seen meeting with on his trip? Hard to believe all this was just a wild coincidence.

From looking at the older brother's amazon.com wish list, he looks interested in radical ideology and criminal behavior going back at least to early 2006. I think he was a budding jihadist before he went to "visit his father." He probably got training and maybe funding during his six months there. But his introduction to and acceptance by the terrorists probably occurred long before that.

I'm still thinking that the unsolved murder case where three of his friends were beheaded was some kind of initiation or proving to the leaders of this particular chechyen jihadi group.

Who was paying their freight? Neither of them held down a real job; yet they drove fancy cars, wore nice threads, and someone paid their tuition and rent. And it wasn’t their parents, who were commoners in the back regions of the Caucasus. And who picked up the tab for Tamerlan “Speed Bump” to go back there last year for six months?

Follow the money.
