RadioWhoWhatWhy Extra: When does an FBI infiltrator become the criminal?

Reading Time: 1 minute
The defense’s strategy to secure a life imprisonment sentence for convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is to argue that it would mean no martyrdom for him. But is he guilty at all?

The defense’s strategy to secure a life imprisonment sentence for convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is to argue that it would mean no martyrdom for him. But is he guilty at all?

WhoWhatWhy Editor Russ Baker interviewed by Boston-based syndicated radio host Chuck Morse on April 24, just prior to the defense’s opening in the Boston Marathon Bombing trial penalty phase. Russ and Chuck get into it over the FBI’s appropriate use of plot infiltrators.

    Wow, I totally missed this great interview. Russ, please remember that there’s a major coincidence that might be a clue to what “interest” the government could have in the whole Biden/rally thing. The exact same week, Congress was holding the Intelligence and Military budget hearings! ALL of them (CJCS, the DNI,FBI Director, Keith Alexander, etc.) used the bombings in their speeches and of course, the congressmen were all “concerned” with the attack.

    That’s exactly what the FBI does — shamelessly. They go out and recruit people; they favor mentally challenged or disturbed people to do their dirty deeds. This case has all the marks of yet another false flag.

    It’s highly likely that the FBI ignored the input from Russia re Tamerlan because they didn’t need to be told anything. They were up to their necks in info re Tamerlan because he was their patsy.

    The final remarks about what kind of an organization the FBI is and what it should or should not be allowed to do are pressing issues that desperately need address–and redress.

    As for law enforcement in general, here’s a California case of entrapment of a high school student with autism. Warning: it’s heartbreaking to watch. When people like this cop named Daniel are given any kind of authority, you can be sure the country is on the skids. Of course, most of us already know that, but it helps also to know all the reasons why.

    There are 3 young men now known as “The NATO 3” who are about to serve 4 or 5 year sentences after being convicted under a newly created Illinois State Anti-Terrorism law. The crimes they were found guilty of which were never committed were suggested/promoted by FBI agents posing as fellow demonstrators. I urge whowhatwhy.com to look into what really happened, who made it happen and why it was made to happen.

    Russ is right, there is much more to the story regarding Tamerlan’s associations with the intelligence community. We recently heard one of the GOV people (who likely knows the details) in an op-ed talking about Masha Gessen’s new book about the Tsarnaev brothers. That was Janet Napolitano and her whole reason for her op-ed was obviously to attack Gessen, because Gessen brings up the FBI connections, etc with Tamerlan. Napolitano then ends her smear job with a paragraph devoted to reminding the reader that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will spend the rest of his days behind bars, whether he dies or gets the super max. She then goes on with flowery words of praise for the Boston Community, etc.

      My first impression of the Boston Marathon Bombing was that it was a staged made for TV event.
