Boston bomberís widow ó victim or accomplice?
NY Post ^ | 4-6-14 | Maureen Callahan

Posted on 04/06/2014 6:28:32 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

She was known as Katie, a pretty, popular girl from a well-respected Rhode Island family. In high school, she excelled at music and art and worshipped David Bowie. As a freshman at Suffolk University, she majored in communications, and she and a gaggle of friends modeled themselves after the girls on “Sex and the City.”

She thought about joining the Peace Corps.

That was before 2010, when she met the man she’d drop out of school to marry, the man for whom she’d convert to Islam, the man who, three years later, would leave her with a baby daughter and the threat of jail time.

Today, at 25, Katie Russell is best known as the widow of the Boston bomber. As the first anniversary of the attack nears, she remains one of its biggest mysteries — how she was drawn into her husband’s world, and what she knew about his plans.

In November, Russell’s brother-in-law, Dzhokhar “Jahar” Tsarnaev, will stand trial. Russell has not been charged, nor is it clear whether she’ll be a witness. But authorities still wonder: Was she a willing accomplice? Or a witless victim?

Russell, the oldest of three girls, was raised on a tree-lined street in the comfortable suburb of North Kingston, RI, right off a bike path called Sage Trail. Her dad, Warren, is an emergency-room doctor, her mom, Judith, a nurse.

The girls were raised Catholic and went to public schools. Katie was most comfortable in jeans and T-shirts. “She was a great girl, and a good student, and normal,” a family friend told The Washington Post. “She was normal.”

Ah yes, “Speedbump” and “Flashbang” AKA “Joker”.

How could Missus Speedbump not have known?

Not really. The most important and pertinent of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's relationships is with his Uncle Ruslan. Ruslan was married to the daughter of Graham Fuller. Fuller was the top CIA strategists who developed and implemented the plan to recruit Muslims to fight for Uncle Scam in Central Asia.

The plan is similar the current operation where Uncle Scam recruits, trains, arms, and funds Christian slaughtering Al Qaeda foreign mercenaries to attack and overthrow Syria.

Why have the victims and families been so silent about the obvious incompetence of the Obama regime , ignoring specific warnings about Tamerlane, etc.? I know they’ve seen it hasn’t gotten the Benghazi victims’ anywhere to complain, so different from Cindy Sheehan or Berg; but is that the only reason?

Does she really need to keep using air? She at the very least shared hubbys mindset and we have no use for her kind here. Send her to Chechnaya at least.

That connection you mentioned makes one wonder if the Tsarnov brothers were CIA recruits gone astray.

Small apartment, using the same computer, on Skype with her hubby everyday while he was in Chechnya, made a call to him to tell him that the police were looking for him, very close with his radical mom, lawyered up and shut up rather quickly, her family quickly puts house up for sale.....

Oh Yeh — and of course still wears her hijab.

Uncle Ruslan might be a KGB flipper. There was an old photo online of young Jihad Mom Zubi Tsarnayeva, her husband and Ruslan wearing Soviet uniform. Maybe double or triple agent.

I like the way the author simply brushed off the shoplifting incident when she was in high school. I think she was not the perfect little angel the author of this article desperately wants to portray her as.

it is outrageous to me that it is even a possibility that she may not be required to answer questions or testify regarding what she knows.

The new Stockholm Syndrome? Given the large numbers of Muslims in Nordic countries, it’s very fitting.

Nothing to see here, move along to the anti Putin demonstration across the street.

Right off the bat - “she worshipped David Bowie”. Total lack of judgement, and poor catechesis in the Catholic faith &/or the Christian faith.

Looks to me as though she has a foundation made of sand which shifts with the slightest breeze.

That's why events such as 9/11 and the Marathon bombings are known as "blowback" in the trade.
