Answers needed in death of Tamerlan Tsarnaev acquaintance
Washington Post ^ | May 30, 2013

Last week, a team of FBI agents and Massachusetts police officers questioned Ibragim Todashev, an associate of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings who was killed days after that calamity.

One of the agents left the interview with minor injuries. Mr. Todashev was carted out with, apparently, several bullet holes in his body. We say “apparently” because journalists have gotten a tangle of conflicting reports from law enforcement sources about what happened, many of which look bad for the FBI.

The only answer I am seeking is if the FBI agent is ok.

Weirdly enough, I agree with the WP.

Was Todashev’s killing a “clean-up?” Probably not, but if it was, how the scene have played out any differently?

I share your sentiments about what should happen with terrorists, but with the current regime in place, the idea of Feds shooting suspects and loose ends makes me a little uncomfortable.

Hey, if the IRS won’t shut you up, how ‘bout a little visit from the FBI or some other armed alphabet agency?

With Obama and Holder calling the shots, the shots better be looked at very closely.

He had admitted to participating in slitting the throats of 3 people, one a friend, years ago along with the boston bomber guys. One less chechen in the country makes my day a better one.

Some reading suggestions for you...

this story for one

Two law enforcement officials have also told USA TODAY that Todashev was being questioned about the unsolved 2011 murders of three men in Waltham, Mass. ABC News reported last week that Todashev was about to sign a confession to the killings when he became violent.

Know anything about chechens, btw?

When do agents make suspects sign confessions in their own apartments instead of bringing them in for questioning?

Clue: never.

I despise terrorists and believe they should be tried and executed, but this story just smells.

Yes, I do know about chechens.

Do you know why FBI agents shot an unarmed man whom they later claimed was armed?

Do you further know why FBI agents would interview a man that they believed to be dangerous in an apartment that he is familiar with and they are not familiar with without first securing the man and the apartment, or handcuffing him while they conduct their investigation for their safety and his, or bring him to a secure location to conduct such an interview?

Do you know that our government, its agencies and agents of those agencies are known liars?

Do you understand that if FBI agents lied about the circumstances of this mans death, which it now appears that they did, that FBI agents can no longer be trusted?

Do you realize how important trust of government is?

I see this as a ‘get in line’ interest. Yes, I guess we should find out what happened but this is rather far down on my list of interests behind Benghazi, the IRS, State Dept, DOJ, etc., etc., etc. Has the WaPo advocated so strongly for any of those investigations?

Aren’t you skipping what should be of interest to us in your rush to change the suject, what happened in that room is the question.

We aren’t children deciding who we like the most, or who is the nice man or the mean man sitting in that room, we want to know what happened, and why, and did it cost us intelligence, were our agents incompetent, was the killing just, what happened in that room and why?

When gov’t agents show up at a house, kill someone, and then lie about it - it’s a big problem. Not unless you want to believe that a gov’t agency, say the IRS, would ever target persons based on their political beliefs.

Is there a recording of that confession?

Is there a recording or video of this interview? If not, why not?

I’m a folsk, and the answers you have provided do not tell me anything at all about what happened.

I do not believe my government or anyone who works for them anymore about anything.

If they want me to believe anything at all then they are going to have to show me indisputable proof of their claim, or I will assume that they are lying as usual.

Such is the cost of being serial liars.

With all due respect-0 they don’t have to show you or anyone else crap-

[[or I will assume that they are lying as usual.]]

And they care that you assuem htey are lying why? The burden of proof is not on them- it’s their word agaisnt the public’s- the burden is on thep ublic to prove they lied if they are goign to ‘demand answers’

A Chechen broke a wine glass, chewed it up, and swallowed it for his Russian boss, while on a commercial flight. MSM showed the video maybe 25 years ago. 60-Minutes?
