Dad of Boston bomb suspectís friend writes Obama
Associated Press ^ | Dec 30, 2013 7:15 PM EST

The father of a Chechen man shot to death by authorities in Florida while being questioned in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation has written to President Barack Obama asking for help finding out what happened.

Abdulbaki Todashev wrote in a letter released Monday that son Ibragim Todashev knew dead marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev and his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, through boxing but had no connection to the bombing or any other crime.

He said his son voluntarily went to an FBI office in Orlando to speak with agents four times before they showed up at his apartment on May 22. He included photos of his son’s body with the letter and offered to travel to Washington, D.C., to speak to Obama directly. …

I certainly feel for Mr. Todashev. I cannot imagine the unrelenting pain of losing a son - especially that way.

Unfortunately I fear the most he'll get is a beer summit and a autographed selfie to keep as a souvenir.

There’s something not right about what happened there. I remember reading it about, the story just doesn’t make sense.

We were not there and I don’t know if they filmed it.
It does appear strange a guy who went to the police 4 times would have them come over to him and in the process of bringing him in have to kill him unless he was resisting.

Was there EVER a released report?

Something "not right" is an understatement. This was a silencer. Why?
Anyone but me curious as to why all these major scandals are coming to the forefront again? Is something major about to break?

Anyone wanting on or off this list...well, you know.

I recall there were tow FBI agents and a Massachusetts state cop. An FBI agent shot him. I recall the Massachusetts cop was unnerved by the experience. It seems that the Feds told all to shut their mouths.

So the victim had boxing experience. The cops had guns and could have had tasers. The cops had numbers on their side. If they feared for their lives against an unarmed man, then we have the wrong men doing this job.

“Todashev wonders why authorities are being secretive about the investigation”

because everything involving the feds is secretive nowadays.

Yes, this same thought has crossed my mind many times on threads recently.

<< Anyone but me curious as to why all these major scandals are coming to the forefront again? Is something major about to break? >>

Yeah, i noticed it. Why on earth would AP even report this? I can think of no reason why they would drag this up again unless there was a motive. Reporting any actual news that doesn’t make Barry Soetoto appear to be Divinity Reincarnate is not exactly their strong point.

There’s definitely an online nervousness out there that I’ve noticed, no doubt about it. I saw a YouTube the other day where someone “with inside sources” (naturally) was saying to be looking out for one Friday afternoon when Barry says he has to shut down all banks for the weekend because of a nationwide cyber attack. (The video predated the attack on Target). Then by Monday, of course, all 401k’s and savings will be gone and martial law will follow.

Yeah, it’s hard to know if all these people are suffering from paranoid delusions and deep-seated neuroses or if they are the wisest people on earth. lol.

And didn’t at least one of those FBI agents fall out of a helicopter soon after that? During a training exercise.

FBI visited that Orlando moslem’s apartment after midnight.

They shot him 6 times (once in back of head) after he....

STORY #1: Pulled a knife.
STORY #2: Lunged for a weapon.
STORY #3: Lunged at agents (no weapon was nearby).
STORY #4: Didn’t lunge/attack but agents felt threatened.

After Story #4, FBI got tired of releasing conflicting stories almost daily, so the govt said ‘No further comment bc it’s an open investigation.’

It was ‘one new story per day’ for the first 4-5 days.

This was also around the time Soetoro executed 2 FBI agents by arranging for them to rope from a helicopter on a magical invisible rope made of unicorn whiskers.

So think about a name you don’t see, don’t hear, as if he never existed. And like I said yesterday, I want to see david petraeus waterboarded. bj adopted petraeus in Haiti in 1995 and his promotions afterward were at lightspeed.

I might actually feel sorry for them if the FBI hadn’t been covering up for Jugear’s sorry lying Marxist arse all this time.

And dead men/women tell no tales. It might be of interest that the sauds tried to blackmail Russia and admitted they control the chechens.
“Give up protecting Syria for us and no terror attacks for the olympics.”
Putin refused.
Then wham, three bombs in Volgograd.
Point being, the sauds control the chechens and the dude michelle ‘visited’ in the hospital was a saudi who was later spotted at a whitehut outdoor celebration .

There are a number of strange deaths or events with this administration. do you recall the single black mother who was killed in a hail of bullets for what? ramming her car into a barrier near the White House?
