Skip to comments.A Family Terror: The Tsarnaevs and the Boston Bombing

But they already seemed like "losers," as their successful Americanized uncle told reporters after the attack. They were out of place in the U.S., and my relationship with them developed because they needed so much basic advice about how to get by. I didn't sense impending danger in their household, but looking back, I can see now that I glimpsed a new type of threat to the U.S., one that we have only recently begun to confront.

Which came first, the "lone wolf" bombing or the "lone wolf" excuse why the government didn't stop it? Notice how the government told us the bomber/s were lone wolves from day one.
When the family's landlord allowed me into their old apartment over the summer, I was able to examine Tamerlan's books and a ring-binder
As if the government, lawyers and the mother left all these items so the landlord could give tours. This author just happens to have followed the family around more than Homeland Security which had already had warnings on them. No, wait, can't question that or I'd be a conspiracy nut.
Why have the families of the bombing victims been so silent? I would be screaming at the top of my lungs about a U.S. government as incompetent and complacent as the Obama regime has been .
Two young muslim male immigrants to America travel extensively to radial muslim areas in the caucuses. They have radicalized family members there. They attend radical sermons in radical mosques.
They text. They visit radical muslim websites. They call. They email. They visit bomb making websites.
EVERYONE around thinks something is wrong.
And the NSA TOTALLY MISSES IT????
They were too busy recording our conversations about the next Tea Party rally. SORRY! No time for monitoring real terrorists...
NSA is too busy tracking Tea Party members and DHS is too busy working to grant amnesty to criminal illegal aliens.
The NSA probably has a larger dossier on some of us Freepers than they have on the Tsarnaev family.
The Russians immediately understood the inherent nature of the Boston marathon bombing. The Obama administration did not and it resulted in the Syrian “limited strike” debacle and subsequent strategic disaster. Russia has a huge problem with jihadists causing mayhem in southern Russia and has even experienced terrorist acts in Moscow. It simply could not tolerate a Islamic dominated state in nearby Syria. Syria would then become a haven and base for the jihadists. The “limited strikes” were designed to bring victory to the then favored “rebels”. The first rule of any negotiations is to understand the concerns and position of your opponent. If Kerry and Obama had appreciated and understood the reasons for the Russian position, negotiations could have been successful. Success would have meant a settlement in which Iran would be forced out of Syria. Now they have forward bases in Syria where they are able to station hard to detect mobile ballistic missiles. This gives them a great strategic advantage. If Israel were to attack Iran, these missiles would deliver a devastating counterattack.
It’s a fascinating and sad article, no matter what your political persuasion. Well worth reading. It reinforces a lot of what I believe, so I understand the danger of confirmation bias. But, maybe my views are correct.
They were out of place in the U.S.I guess Captain Obvious couldnt have said it better. But the TSA does not listen to Captain Obvious. (Probably out of place in Mecca too.)
I’m still trying to figure out how the early press releases BOLOs called these two suspects “white.”
Yes, it is.
Anyone wanting on or off this list...well, you know.
I read the hard copy WSJ yesterday. The thing that was missing was the Tsarnaev mother’s interview back home where she was screaming her sons were killed for Allah. That was very, very telling and the author (who intimately knew the family before and after the bombings) just left it out.
Ok, now it looks like the Boston bombing wasn’t Islam after all. It just may have been the result of early exposure to an Ivy League professor!
People with fair skin from the Caucasus aren't white?
Thank you for teh generous gift of books via the Internet.
For those interested in the potential risks of Muslims, here is a fact which offers a solution to the Muslim issue in America:
JAPAN DOES NOT ALLOW A MUSLIM TO SET FOOT ON JAPANESE SOIL.
Any Muslim found is immediately removed. Note the immediately.
We could easily do likewise.
As Islam is really a war plan masquerading as a religion, Islam is not protected by the Constitution.
Jefferson knew this and sent the Marines to Tripoli accordingly.
What do you think would the Founders would have done to Islam if they had our military superiority.
My guess is an aide would have told Jefferson, “You can stop pressing the Red Button now, Mr. President - they are all gone by now.”
So these are just museums?
List of mosques in Japan
Maybe the bombing victimes have NOT been silent. Maybe the Monolithic Obama Media (MOM) has just not been REPORTING it!
But nothing from Hannity, Beck, etc.? The Branch Davidians jailed after Waco were the only other group I know of that have kept this kind of disciplined silence.
Absolutely not true. It would be nice if they (and we) did but fact is that Japan actually has a Muslim population along with a significant amount of mosques.
It is very difficult however for any foreigner to emigrate there. You can visit and spend your money there all you want but if you want to become a citizen - good luck.
The WSJ is the ONLY newspaper in America that is still worth reading.
Thanks for the correcction. Japan does have one Japanese Imam, and Japanhas an interesting view towards Islam.
This article notes the Japanese policy is not to allow any Muslim immigrants and long term residency permits are exceeding difficult to obtain.
The present Muslim population in Japan may be .001 of one percent of teh population. Japan sees Islam an a strange religion not suited for Japan.
Were the Founding Fathers here during/after 9-11, they would have turned Mecca into a sea of glass.
And said to the remainder:
Hi Alpha Librae,
The article conveyed enough about the Mother to make it clear that she was a pathetic character who took refuge behind a faith she little understood. The author may have pulled his punch, he depicts her as pathetic. One person’s pathos is a source of evil, given reign over the lives of others, with harm spread beyond the immediate family. Which of his neighbors thought Hitler’s parents were anything other than just bad parents? Bad parents, whose handiwork killed millions and led to untold harm beyond his family and beyond his home country.
Your writing style is easy on the eyes, LiM. I can see you are a reasonable man. It’s a pleasure to know you better.
