NBC News ^ | 5/22/13 | Richard Esposito and Matthew DeLuca

Posted on 05/22/2013 5:07:30 AM PDT by jimbo123

An FBI agent was involved in a deadly overnight shooting connected to the Boston Marathon bombing case.

The man who was shot, Ibragim Todashev, had been interviewed about his connections to the bombing suspects before by the FBI and started out cooperative, NBC sources said.

The suspect then went to attack the agent and was shot, the sources said.

The suspect is deceased, the FBI said.

When you consider the politicians that MA has sent to Washington in the last few decades, is it any wonder a terrorist would feel comfortable living there?

“Why is the news starting to read like a Hollywood movie plot?”

This is true. But the reports are so short and vague you really have to wonder just what is left out.

“The suspect is deceased, the FBI said.”

As long as it’s connected to terrorism, we need to be reading that on a daily basis.

I am suspicious of anything the fed does anymore with obama and Holder at the helm. I’m surprised obama hasn’t started to knock-off Benghazi and IRS witnesses. Give him time I guess.

Hey FBI! There is a Hussein type of terrorist hiding in the Oval Office under the desk. He is terrorizing the workers of America and there are four dead Americans in Libya. Go get him!

Once it came out that the Uncle has ties to the CIA and that the boat was in the search zone but not searched and that the Judge came to the hospital room to shut down an interrogation...

it became obvious all was not what it seemed.

The US has probably been arming the Chechens. It’s possible that Dead Bomber was an asset that went off the rails.

If it gets out that the US was arming Chechens, the most dangerous of all muzzie terrorists, Putin will consider declaring war.

Chechens are a malignant blight upon this Earth, even more so than Islam in general.

See the 2nd link on my post #12

At the link is a video of an interview with friend of the man who the FBI shot. It did not like like tinfoil. But you cannot draw a conclusion from it about what actually happened that the suspect was shot.

We were arming the Chechens back when the Uncle lived in the house of the former CIA bigwig.

You can see it in the letter to the Charity that was accused by the US of arming Jihadists.

If you aren’t up to speed on that part of the story you should take a look.

An interesting video. Normally one could trust the FBI. These days one wonders. I would hear the justification for what looks like a sever case of “overkill” by the agent.

Which is OK, as long as you're not labeled 'a terrorist'.

It is likely that posting on this thread puts you on the government list of terrorists.

They were arming the Chechens in 1996. My guess is we were arming them during the fall of the Soviet Union. After all, the CIA bigwig was a Bigwig under Reagan...and he is credited with saying that we should arm Jihadists to use against our enemies.

And if Putin has figured out that Obama has been arming Chechens, could his intel people be behind the sudden outbreak of bad news for Barack?

Where’d I put that foil hat again?

Don’t know if we are arming the Chechens now but we have in the past.

What is weird to me is that great public display that Uncle did. Given that he has a different last name..it might have been difficult for media to track him down.

But since he has a lot of HUGE connections in the area - I suspect Putin and others already knew he was connected to the Bombers...and to the CIA

Uncle is no minor player in that area.

Yes, I don’t know what to make of it either. There are very few Chechens in the US. It is clear that most of them are Muslims. Past that??

“When you consider the politicians that MA has sent to Washington in the last few decades, is it any wonder a terrorist would feel comfortable living there?”


The problem with foreign human debris running freely in this country lies 100% with Ted, the woman killer/molester, Kennedy.

He pushed to change our immigration laws to discriminate against white Europeans and deliberately tilt the process towards human debris from the less civilized countries of the world.

When they were having a problem finding a place to bury the Boston bomber, they should have dug up that Kennedy scum’s grave and buried the terrorist in his coffin.

“The suspect then went to attack the agent and was shot, the sources said. “

That's what we lawyers call a “conclusory allegation.” It gives no real details, jumps over everything that actually happened, and just gives a conclusion that serves the shooter's interests. It would be nice to see genuine details of the alleged attack. The decedent was apparently into MMA and he might actually have tried to do lethal damage to the FBI agent, just as Trayvon Martin tried to do to George Zimmerman, and received the same appropriate response. OTOH the present story leaves the issue hanging and the agent might have deliberately murdered the decedent. With the present evil regime, it's impossible to say which is true. Indeed, with the regime controlling the evidence and no real details being given, a strong suspicion of foul play by the agent hangs over this incident.

What type of hoodie was he wearing?
Hey it’s Florida unarmed guys are shot and killed all the time ,seems crazy that a suspect would be interviewed by an agent with a weapon? Are they saying the FBI cannot subdue an unarmed suspect without deadly force?
Is AWAH we killed him all there is? Unreal!

“He felt inside he was going to get shot. I told him, ‘Everything is going to be fine, don’t worry about it.’ He said, ‘I have a really bad feeling.’”

It’s a toss up if this is true or not. Either way, the story doesn’t work. The FBI interview him for 3 hours at the apartment and then take him off somewhere. Where did they take him? If to the FBI office and he’s in there for questioning, then no one bothered to search him for weapons??? What caused him to confess to the murders in Boston or is that another tall tale? Why did he suddenly feel the need to buy tickets out of the country? I’m buying more tin foil stock because this is getting way too hinky.

I’ve read only the first 20 replies so maybe others have commented on this, but how, and why in blazes could this guy have a knife in his possession while being interrogated? Wasn’t he searched for a weapon(s) before being detained and taken to wherever the questioning was done? Something really is out of whack here. FBI agents this lax? Hard to believe this.

Normally one could trust the FBI. These days one wonders.

Since exactly when could one 'normally trust the FBI'? They have been plagued, since inception, with questionable motives and operations. Its just that most folks haven't done a bit of research that they have this manufactured aura of 'good guy-ness' (and the operative word there is manufactured...)
