I am also utterly disgusted at how eager various (usually anonymous) intel officials are to proclaim that the brothers were “self radicalized” and had no overseas terror ties.... within only hours or days, without any adequate research!!
We simply do not KNOW enough yet, but the idea of accepting the surviving bomber’s hospital statements, or assuming that “absence of evidence provides evidence of absence” shows yet again how piss-poor awful many of our politically correct intel and security people are (when they are filtered and selected by bureaucracies dominated by clones of Obama and Biden et al).
Maybe there are overseas jihad ties, maybe not, but no one can claim at this point to have definitive info AGAINST such ties..... we simply do not know enough.
Media and administration hacks are soooo eager to rule out such ties, when we do not even yet know who the notorious “Misha” is who is said by family to have been key to radicalizing Tamerlan..... and there is so much we do not know. It doesn’t stop politically correct pundits and administration apologists from concocting their webs of misinformation.
Let’s not forget that saudi. Why was he near the blast?? Why was he a person of interest?? Why was he even there, when he was supposed to be in school in Ohio?? Why does this stink to high heaven!!
