FBI: Tsarnaev bombs showed “additional training or expertise”
Hot Air ^ | 11:31 am on April 27, 2013 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 04/27/2013 9:53:30 PM PDT by Ernest_at_the_Beach

The media theory over the last several days about the Boston Marathon bombing is that the pressure-cooker design came straight off the Internet and didn’t require any specific training.  That assumption ignores a couple of key points even if the bomb design matched those readily available on jihadi websites, such as practice and testing, of which so far the FBI has found no evidence in the US.  Second, any deviation from those designs would entirely negate that kind of “lone wolf” scenario — and according to the Wall Street Journal, the FBI now believes that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had to have received assistance and/or training for the designs he used:

A Federal Bureau of Investigation analysis of the bombs used in the Boston Marathon attacks has concluded that makers of the devices had some knowledge beyond the step-by-step recipes already described by the surviving suspect in the attack.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has told interrogators that he and his brother used bomb-making instructions found in Inspire, an online al Qaeda magazine, according to federal officials. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the other accused bomber, was killed during a gunfight with police in Watertown, Mass.

The FBI’s bomb experts analyzed remnants of both bombs that exploded on April 15 near the marathon’s finish line, as well as additional explosive devices that authorities said were recovered after the encounter with the suspects early on April 19.

Their early conclusion is that the bomb makers likely had additional training or expertise, in part because they deviated from two recipes in Inspire, according to a report prepared by the Terrorist Explosive Device Analytical Center and law-enforcement officials briefed on the investigation.

The analysis also determined that the explosives used were “consistent with commercial fireworks,” said the report, which was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. Officials cautioned that the analysis was preliminary.

Boston PD found a cache of discarded fireworks on Wednesday night, many with the gunpowder removed.  That would connect with the design of the bomb, although investigators have yet to link the find directly to the Tsarnaevs — yet, anyway.

This does, however, point up the importance of finding what the Tsarnaevs preferred to throw away.  With one of the bombing suspects dead and the other in a prison hospital facility, investigators of the Boston Marathon terrorist attack have access to the possessions of the two Tsarnaevs. What about those items that left their possession just before the bombing? CBS News’ John Miller updated viewers on the investigation and reported that FBI agents are now searching for laptops that the two brothers discarded shortly before conducting their attack:

FBI agents picked through a landfill near the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where 19-year-old suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was a sophomore.

On “CBS This Morning: Saturday,” CBS News senior correspondent John Miller, a former assistant FBI director, reports the agents were looking for a couple of laptop computers that belonged to the suspects.

“One of the things in these terrorism cases, particularly, Margaret, where the issue is how did a process of radicalization occur, a lot of that occurs online,” Miller told CBS News correspondent Margaret Brennan, “particularly where they want to know was anyone else involved, was there a mastermind, was he communicating with someone overseas about it.”

Miller reports that investigators believe those answers are likely to be found in the computers.

“They believe that what they learned from the brother was that the computer was tossed just before the bombing mission, probably to conceal all that, so they’d really like to get it back,” Miller said.

Earlier, we noted the FBI’s landfill search, which was reported in the context of looking for staging areas for bomb tests. This adds another level of interest in landfills, but the FBI will need a lot of luck in finding evidence in either effort. The search began, apparently, when Dzhokhar admitted discarding the laptops, and presumably they have a good idea where that took place. Still, actually finding the laptops would still be a challenge, and it’s at least a good possibility that the two were technically adept enough to destroy the hard drives before discarding the computers.

Speaking of technology, it’s not just discarded physical assets that investigators want to find. The FBI has found the little-known Instagram account of Dzhokhar, and preliminary information shows that he was very interested in a dead Chechen warlord and terrorist leader:

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Twitter account and VK Russian social networking profile have drawn heavy public scrutiny, but he left another, more hidden social media trail: a deleted Instagram account that sources close to him tell CNN once belonged to the accused Boston bomber.

The Instagram account, with the user name “jmaister1,” no longer exists, and friends of Tsarnaev say it was deleted only recently. An Instagram spokesman declined to comment on the account or disclose when the account was deleted.

CNN National Security Analyst Juliette Kayyem says the account could be significant.

“If I were an investigator right now, obviously the platform he deleted matters the most,” she said.

Indeed. The last activity they have found (so far) before Dzhokhar deleted the account took place on April 10th, when “jmaister1″ liked a picture and profile of Shamil Basayev, a long-dead Chechen warlord and terrorist.  Among other items on Basayev’s resumé is the Beslan massacre, in which more than 380 people were killed, most of them schoolchildren, and hundreds more wounded.  Basayev financed and organized the terrorist attack, later bragging that it had only cost him 8,000 rubles for the whole operation.  Russians put a $10 million bounty on Basayev’s head; he later died when a mine he was inspecting detonated unexpectedly.  The FSB insinuated that they had a hand in the detonation.

As Kayyem correctly points out, the fact that Dzhokhar had an Instagram account is interesting, and his “like” of Basayev intriguing.  Far more interesting is what they haven’t found — and why Dzhokhar went out of his way between April 10th and April 14th to delete the account.  Finding their discards might end up being the quickest path to understanding the true nature of the bombers and the bombing.

He communicated by Skype every night with his wife and his mother while he was over in Russia. The mother and the wife were of course living together in the same house there in Cambridge. If he and his mother were talking about jihad, it’s hard to believe that his wife did not overhear the conversations.

Muslim apologists are already (successfully) spinning this into a meme that they were ‘radicalized by someone or some web site with the attendant implication it wasn’t really their fault or part of their religion - they were ‘brainwashed’.

Might as well ask who ‘radicalized’ the 8 doctors in the Heathrow bombing, or 9/11, or the 1,000s of other Muslim terrorist attacks that have taken place around the world.

I believe there is more to this—more than two radicals involved! If I was a betting man I would say Iran had something to do with this mess.

Boy they are really scratching their heads over this one, just can’t figure out how the pieces all fit together can they? What is with instagram not turning over information? Doesn’t that evil google turn over anything the government asks for? Oh yea, I get it, it might show the terrorist for the terrorist he was.

Thanks for the pings, you are doing amazing!

I have to be honest. I am not following this stuff in any way as closely as a number of fine folks at Free Republic.
To be blunt. I'm just as much concerned over the four day old chopper crash in ShahJoy district in Kabul Afghanistan, some 35 neutical miles NE by east on route One in Kabul where my nephew the former Marine is currently at in a none disclosed FOB,now as a civy Intel person, and where two weeks ago the young lady from an NGO was slain handing out books.

For all gentle readers. It is taking a toll on me. After said nephews two tours in Iraq then as Civy Intel, in Afghanistan now on second tour.....I guess my guts no longer can take all these things.

I'm very thank full thus far HE has provided the means for said nephew and a dear cousin's son who put two tours in Iraq life as we all take often for granted.
I do hope as much on the Boston tragedy can be brought out so that assholes on the left can slow down a bit, and realize, what President George W. Bush many years back had to say.... this is going to be along war, we cannot expect the glory of our troops returning from war.

Enough said. Most of us understand the hard facts. But God is good.
Take care all.

Attorney General Eric Holder said on Saturday that “everything was done appropriately” in the questioning of the Boston Marathon bombings suspect.

“Well I mean, the decision to Mirandize him is one that…was totally consistent with the laws that we have,” Holder told CNN as he made his way into the White House Correspondents Dinner. “We had a two-day period…to question him under the public safety exception, so I think everything was done appropriately.”

...when “jmaister1″ liked a picture and profile of Shamil Basayev, a long-dead Chechen warlord and terrorist.

Basayev financed and organized the terrorist attack, later bragging that it had only cost him 8,000 rubles for the whole operation.

So the Chechen Boston Islamic bomber last liked a picture of the man who financed and organized Beslan. Yikes. That bomber spent 6 months back in that region. Can we get armed guards in the schools now ? How many Chechens are teaching right now ?

"it’s at least a good possibility that the two were technically adept enough to destroy the hard drives before discarding the computers."

This statement doesn't make any sense. If they were "technically adept enough to destroy the hard drives", they also would have known that there would be no reason to destroy the laptops. Once the hard drives were removed, there would be no other evidence stored in the laptop. A laptop hard drive would be much easier to dispose of than a whole laptop. You could simply drive a nail through it, and pitch it into the water under a highway bridge.

You are correct about the hard drives. However, consider that EMAILS are not SAVED on your hard drive.

Anyone who believes they ARE, try unplugging your computer from the Internet and accessing your email.

You are correct, that emails are possibly saved at your provider’s email servers. That could be true even if you “delete” them from the server. However, destroying your laptop as well as its hard drives won’t get rid of them. All it takes is an email address and a court order, and the FBI can get all that is there.

Once again the British media - doing the reporting that the American media refuse to do.

On the other hand, our media was busy schmoozing and yukking it up at the White Hut KissFest last night, so I suppose they can use that as an excuse for a few days. Then they can go back to their old propaganda and a$$ covering ways for the Regime.

Great post, thank you.

I need to read it slowly, so I can properly digest.

While I'm at it, I would like to leave you with a gift that also requires spiritual discernment. Please contact me if you are interested in seeing more truth. Amen.

Police Say The Naked Man Arrested In Boston Was Not Tamerlan Tsarnaev

Both his nutty parents and his straight up Uncle say they are 100% certain this video is Tamerlan. Look at any of the pictures we have of Tamerlan, we can all agree that his most significant feature is his nose. Now, look at the crystall clear video images. This naked man is obviously Tamerlan beyond any reasonable doubt.

On Thursday night while police were hunting in Watertown, Mass. for bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, at one point they arrested a naked man who looks a lot like Tamerlan.

Police say the naked man is not Tamerlan, despite various conspiracy theories going around the Internet.

According to the official account, Tamerlan died after a shootout with cops, riddled with bullets and shrapnel before being run over by his brother who was fleeing the scene in an SUV.

Take a look: I dare you!

http://www.businessinsider.com/the-naked-man-mystery-role-in-boston-2013-4#ixzz2RnIPaCad

FBI

The Watertown police department got back to us via email just to say that the naked man was not Tamerlan Tsarnaev (pictured on right and in high-res here).

The shootout with the Tsarnaev brothers occurred on Laurel Street. The journalist interviewed in this video describes naked man's capture near Nichols and Dexter, literally down the street from the shootout.

Naked man was apparently stripped, questioned, clothed, questioned some more, and reportedly let go. It's likely police stripped him because they were under citywide bomb threat and wanted to make sure he didn't have a suicide vest, but the police did not comment on that.

Needless to say, Business Insider is interested to hear Naked Man's personal story — send any tips to tips@businessinsider.com.

http://www.businessinsider.com/the-naked-man-mystery-role-in-boston-2013-4#ixzz2RnIPaCad

Have any of you viewed the CNN footage of a Crisis Actor that was interviewed at the bombing and four days later as a witness to the Watertown shootout. If you're still with me, I would be happy to PM you.

Boston Terror, CIA’s Graham Fuller & CIA Operation-the Caucasus

Saturday, 27. April 2013 by Sibel Edmonds

Graham Fuller: Edmonds’ State Secrets Privilege, FBI Gladio-B Target, Handler-Sponsor of Turkey’s Imam Gulen

A major break in the Boston Terror CIA Connection took place last night when I came across a post outing CIA Operative Graham Fuller as the father of the woman married to Boston terror suspect’s infamous uncle Ruslan Tsarni.

Further confirmation of this bombshell was received via mainstream reporter Laura Rozen here. Let me first provide a few excerpts from the original reporting site (a real alternative media):

Boston Bombers’ Uncle Married Daughter of Top CIA Official

The uncle of the two suspected Boston bombers in last week’s attack, Ruslan Tsarni, was married to the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller . Ruslan Tsarni married the daughter of former top CIA official Graham Fuller, who spent 20 years as operations officer in Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong.

In 1982 Fuller was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Reagan, he became the Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting. …

Now, take a look at the most explosive aspect of this original report on Graham Fuller’s outing in the CIA Boston Terror Connection [All Emphasis Mine]:

On a more ominous note, Graham Fuller was listed as one of the American Deep State rogues on Sibel Edmonds’ State SecretsPrivilege Gallery,. Edmonds explained it featured subjects of FBI investigations she became aware of during her time as an FBI translator.

Criminal activities were being protected by claims of State Secrets, she asserted. After Attorney General John Ashcroft went all the way to the Supreme Court to muzzle her under a little-used doctrine of State Secrets, she put up twenty-one photos, with no names. One of them was Graham Fuller. …

I presented CIA’s Graham Fuller as one of the top culprits in my State Secrets Privilege Case when the government invoked the State Secrets Privilege and several additional gag orders to cover up the FBI’s investigations and files pertaining to CIA-NATO terror operations in Central Asia & the Caucasus since the mid-1990s.

Guess what? I provided this information to the US media long before it became public in 2008 via my website Not a single media outlet (including quasi and pseudo ones) was willing to touch this. And this, despite of all the gag orders, state secrets privilege invocations, congressional gag orders … you name it. I could name more than a dozen publications that said: ‘no way.’

Not only that. I have been covering one of the main CIA operation figures in Central Asia & the Caucasus-Imam Fethullah Gulen, and this Turkish Imam’s relationship and official Connections to CIA’s Graham Fuller. I’ve been doing this since 2009. Let me provide you with a few explosive examples and excerpts.

Graham Fuller, Crisis Actor Filmed Twice By CNN

In 1982 Fuller was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Reagan, he became the Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council, with overall responsibility for national level strategic forecasting. …

Now, take a look at the most explosive aspect of this original report on Graham Fuller’s outing in the CIA Boston Terror Connection [All Emphasis Mine]:

On a more ominous note, Graham Fuller was listed as one of the American Deep State rogues on Sibel Edmonds’ State SecretsPrivilege Gallery,. Edmonds explained it featured subjects of FBI investigations she became aware of during her time as an FBI translator.

Criminal activities were being protected by claims of State Secrets, she asserted. After Attorney General John Ashcroft went all the way to the Supreme Court to muzzle her under a little-used doctrine of State Secrets, she put up twenty-one photos, with no names. One of them was Graham Fuller. …

I presented CIA’s Graham Fuller as one of the top culprits in my State Secrets Privilege Case when the government invoked the State Secrets Privilege and several additional gag orders to cover up the FBI’s investigations and files pertaining to CIA-NATO terror operations in Central Asia & the Caucasus since the mid-1990s.

Guess what? I provided this information to the US media long before it became public in 2008 via my website Not a single media outlet (including quasi and pseudo ones) was willing to touch this. And this, despite of all the gag orders, state secrets privilege invocations, congressional gag orders … you name it. I could name more than a dozen publications that said: ‘no way.’

Not only that. I have been covering one of the main CIA operation figures in Central Asia & the Caucasus-Imam Fethullah Gulen, and this Turkish Imam’s relationship and official Connections to CIA’s Graham Fuller. I’ve been doing this since 2009. Let me provide you with a few explosive examples and excerpts.

Graham Fuller, Crisis Actor Filmed Twice By CNN

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SbqVqI1cWXc Perhaps budgetary restraints brought on by the Sequester forced CIA Ops Director Graham Fuller to utilize this Crisis Actor at the Boston Bombing and in Watertown where the alleged bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev Attempted to Surrender.

Watch these two videos and make up your mind before the MSM and the Regime closes the historical record forever.
