    To borrow a line from Dennis Green, they are who we thought they were. From his hospital bed, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has acknowledged his role in planting the explosives near the marathon finish line on April 15, the officials said. The first successful large-scale bombing in the post-Sept. 11, 2001, era, the Boston attack killed three people and wounded more than 250 others.The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation, said Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed by police as the two attempted to avoid capture, do not appear to have been...

    THE alleged involvement of two ethnic Chechen brothers in the deadly attack at the Boston Marathon last week should prompt Americans to reflect on whether we do an adequate job assimilating immigrants who arrive in the United States as children or teenagers. ..When asked “what do you like most about being here?” an 11-year-old Haitian boy in Cambridge told us, “There is less killing here.” His response was notably succinct, but not unique. ..Having just one friend who spoke English fluently was a strong predictor of positive academic outcomes. Yet more than a third of the students in our study...

    It's just “preliminary” evidence. Could be that Tamerlan, when he wasn't busy favoriting Chechen jihadist videos on YouTube, was building up an explosive hatred of marathons.This AP story is actually newsy, not because of the conclusion officials have drawn but because of how they drew it: Two U.S. officials say preliminary evidence from an interrogation suggests the suspects in the Boston Marathon attack were motivated by religion but were apparently not tied to any Islamic terrorist groups.The two ethnic Chechen brothers practiced Islam.The U.S. officials spoke Monday on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to publicly discuss the...
