I caught that too..wonder if that’s why the won’t say who he is?
Still odd. The brothers had cars and their friends had cars (mercedes, yet)—but they had to take the chance of hijacking another car?
And they let the driver go (mistake?) —and his call to police is what got them caught?
Or, did they meet with a contact who gave them a car and cash, and then deliberately phoned police to turn them in—thinking that they wouldn’t be taken alive, or would commit suicide if cornered?
Is that the way a terror cell operates—to protect itself?
The bombers are the lowest men on the ladder, they are expendable. Get a couple of low-level dupes to plant the bombs, then break the link in the chain (remove them) and the cell can continue to operate?
Don’t know. But maybe worth looking into
(I’m sure the FBI will get around to it right after they finish checking if they had permits for their guns,
and permits to stay in the USA, and were not being sought by foreign governments, and where they got their money from,
and if they were in the drug trade, and what the “terrorista” plate meant...)
“The brothers told the driver they wouldn’t kill him because he wasn’t an American.”
I hadn’t heard that but when I heard they let him live it crossed my mind that it was something like that.
I find it ironic that a muslim terrorist is being treated at the Beth Israel Medical Center. I hope the authorities are making sure he knows who’s saving his life.
I think the purpose of the car jacking was to drain the victim’s bank account. So the stealing of the car was secondary.
And, they may have feared that their own cars would have been identified.
And - some reports on the gun battle in watertown list the brothers as driving two vehicles - the hijacked SUV, and a Honda sedan, which may have been their car.
Come on, people. My bet is the “victim” is one of them, most likely another Saudi.
Their handler with the burned hands was in the hospital/custody. They had to call another in for help. They drive around a while pleading that they need a car, but he can’t just give it to them without implicating himself. Thus, the “car jacking”.
What I loved best was the Coexist bumper sticker on the car.
Perfect touch in the video of the shoot-out.
If a carjacker were to jump into your car and say, "I won't kill you because you are not an American" -- would you correct them and declare your patriotism?
Love of country and love of God are not the same thing, but our Founders pledged their lives, their honor and their fortunes to give us this country. How quickly would we declare, "American? Me? Ha! I voted for Obama, man!"
I’m wondering if he has a Middle Eastern name.
Yes, Interesting that they took him to Beth Israel. Maybe that hospital has the best security?
Earlier bombing victims were taken - according to the MSM - to five other hospitals. They never mentioned taking anyone to Beth Israel which is odd because it is known for having a good ER. Maybe it’s not a high level trauma center. But if it’s not then why did they take the 2nd bomber there?
Probably so. Notice on the map that they were driving all over as if they were making specific stops rather than getting the heck outta Dodge as quick as possible. It's been speculated little brother deliberately ran over his brother rather than have him taken into custody and then attempted suicide in the boat.
We have a winner!
I think a "smart" Christian says "no". But a faithful one says "Yes".
I didn’t realize it really had a Coexist bumper sticker. Did you see it? I thought that was an internet joke. That *is* funny.
It’s not smart to be faithless.
Gosh, I remember when I was a college student and could only afford a Mercedes...

“Yes, Interesting that they took him to Beth Israel.”
he was in pretty bad shape, it might have been the closest one to where he was captured.
I thought right away that the fact they didn't kill the guy smelled.
That's my suspicion. That, or the driver was Muslim, they tried to talk him into helping them as fellow Muslims, and the driver got cold feet. The "carjack victim" should be looking into. Closely.
I wasnt talking about a spiritual sense. You'd likely be dead which, in a worldy view, isn't "smart". But in a faithful one, is.
Report: Bomb suspects’ carjack victim spared because he wasn’t American

The two brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathons finish line told the man they carjacked on Thursday night that they only decided not to kill him because he wasnt an American, according to a report Monday.
NBCs Pete Williams said the man, who asked not to be identified, told police that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev said they spared his life because he was not an American.
Oh, he’s probably another one “here on a student visa” from yet a terrorist country, overstayed his visa by decades, or another illegal alien ordered deported and convicted felon, just “doing things that Americans refuse to do.”
Years ago at the end of WWII they found a very young German soldier who had been seriously injured. He was hiding in a barn and my great uncle was called to care for him. After applying a tourniquet he was preparing to give him some blood. The young kid looked at him and asked in German “What is that?” My g. uncle replied in German, “Good Jewish blood from New York.” The young German soldier said “mox nix”.
I’ve always wanted to ask people with those bumper stickers
“how many Muslims do you think have those stickers on their cars?”
The victim told police he was driven to a Shell Gas Station on Memorial Drive in Watertown. Inside the car, the brothers “declared to [the victim] that they were the Boston Marathon bombers and would not kill him because he wasn’t American,” the report said.
Already, I’m seeing articles and posts that are beginning to show sympathy for the brothers. The younger will soon be a folk hero.
Anyone...anyone who does not favor the death penalty or that this should be before a military court is naive.
What I’ve not heard is - why did they kill the MIT security guard? The commissioner said it was an “assassination”, but weren’t they trying to get away? And just happened to show up at a c-store while it was being robbed? Odd coincidence, to say the least.
It’s nauseating the way some of the media want to portray Tsarnaev Jr. as some misguided fresh-face kid!
He murdered people for Chri^% sake!
Thsi should change oour perception of our “fellow citizen” Dzokhar. He is now, by his own statement an enemy combatant.
Report: Bomb suspects carjack victim spared because he wasnt American
Kind of answers the whole “no motive has been determined” question doesn’t it? Kills me how the media keep saying that when we all know the answer.
Or, were they a diversion???
...of course what I would say...
...right after emptying my 2nd mag in their lifeless body...
...yep I'm a Christian, but unluckily for you, not a very good one...
"HERE'S your sticker..."
Yeah, and like the Saudi “student” who is supposed to be attending college in IL but has an apartment and living well in Revere, MA!
A smart Christian says yes. We are smart enough to know where we are going and to Whom we belong. Our Lord said whoever denies me before men I will deny before My father. Smart to deny Him to spare a life soon over anyway and lose eternity? Only in the eyes of the world
“I didnt realize it really had a Coexist bumper sticker. Did you see it? I thought that was an internet joke. That *is* funny.”
If you go to Legal Insurrection you can see it. It was mentioned on Ricochet, too.
I would love to talk to the person that owns that car. Sticker are my door to converse with these idiots! But they really don’t know what do with a guy like me.
Hey, we Christians can practice taqiyya too ya know...I’d rather not give them the satisfaction- then I’d spend the rest of my life hunting THEM down.
