Experts: Feds pressure widow, pals in bomb case ^ | 05/04/2013 | By MICHELLE R. SMITH and BRIDGET MURPHY

BOSTON (AP) — Every time the widow of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev leaves her parents' house, federal agents watching the residence follow her in unmarked vehicles.

Federal authorities are placing intense pressure on what they know to be the inner circle of the two bombing suspects, arresting three college buddies of surviving brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and keeping Tamerlan's 24-year-old widow, Katherine Russell, in the public eye with their open surveillance and leaks to media about investigators' focus on her.

Legal experts say it's part of their quest not just to determine whether Russell and the friends are culpable but also to push for as much information as possible regarding whether the bombing suspects had ties to a terrorism network or accomplices working domestically or abroad. A primary goal is to push the widow and friends to give their full cooperation, according to the experts.

"What’s to stop her from blowing up both of them?"

I wondered about that, too.

What if she wants to go out in a 'blaze of glory', what if she has overwhelming guilt, what if she can't stand to look at the child whose father committed such deeds as in Boston.

What's to keep her from strapping any man, woman, or (her) child with a suicide vest?

A mother killing her child?

Counterintuitive, but its happened before.

The child could be in a lot of peril - her parents, too.

US is keeping an eye on her but maybe other people are, too.

I'd through my lot with the US officials. Others might kill her child - child really needs to be in top secret protective care away from Russell AND her parents...they are targets from lots of angles, I would think...

I want to know why she still has access to her child. If a child has been exposed to bomb making etc., whether she thought they were making bombs or working on her husband’s school science project- why hasn’t her child been taken away?

We have a winner! I used to be a CPS worker so I know any of us could have our kids taken away for the mere suspicion of not wiping cookie crumbs off their face but this child is most definitely in a very dangerous environment. If she continues to stay in her parents' home, then put the child in her sister's care and have the sister keep her far, far away.

Frankly, I can't understand how her parents could take her in. According to her Aunt Elizabeth Russell, Katherine's islamic change and marriage broke the extended family up and most didn't attend their wedding. Sorry, but if my kid, relative or friend was involved in any of this, that would be the end. IMO, she might not have detonated the bombs but she certainly knew they were being built and how much her husband hated America. She did nothing to stop them so she's just as guilty. Whould she have called the authories if she knew one of her friends or family had gone to the race? I wonder how many people had mentioned to her in the days before that they were going to go but she said nothing.

Her parents are not dimwits so doubtful she is a dimwit. She just got involved and brainwashed in this dumbass cult. Her father is a Yale trained MD and her mother is a nurse....not dimwits

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Katherine Russell was a talented artist, a good student who grew up Christian, the daughter of a suburban doctor.

Then she went off to college in Boston.

A few years later, she had dropped out of school, converted to Islam and was Katherine Tsarnaeva, wife of a man who would become a suspect in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings and a subject of one of the biggest manhunts in American history.

They are trying to pass that awful Rubio-Obama Amnesty bill....and if it is discovered that there was direct foreign involvement.... Illegal Alien Amnesty is dead

They want this widow to be involved somehow

Might be arrangements were made that she stay with her parents..(supervised)...they had an attorney almost immediately for her...once it was known it was her husband who bombed the marathon.....and that attorney is no newbee at law.

But with her work hours as they were, I could see the brothers making bombs without her knowlege.....heck woman at home, as he was all day, have had affairs and the husband didn’t know. They could have easily worked on them and then shuffle them off someplace...even in the younger kids car...they weren’ real bright about many things.

However her computer loaded with ISlamic Terrorist stuff..and bomb making...well now pretty hard to think she didn’t know.... just with that on her computer alone.

That would then assume she knew about the bombs no matter what her working hours were.

Thats all just FBI dandy. But the FBI is not telling us that the Widow Tsarneav is lawyered up and protected by Obamas Community Organizers, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
You know, the little liberal fascists whose federal magistrate intervened in the interrogation of Suspect #2, and who prevented his classification as an enemy combatant?

If that had been done we would have all the information we needed, and Suspect 1 and 2, one dead and ome alive, would be buried in Guantanamo Bay , where they belong. As it is if Suspect 1 is buried in Worcestor, MA, there will be riots and his grave will undoubtedly be desecrated, just the kind of social disorder Obama wants to amplify and foment into “revolution” between white people and minorities.

We have an angry president who wants to punish America.So far he is doing a pretty good job of it.
