The FBI can’t seem to get its story straight about its prior relationship with the New York and New Jersey bomber — same thing with one of the Boston bombers. What could possibly be the reason for these garbled explanations?
As with many alleged lone wolf attacks — both those carried out and merely planned — the common denominator in the back stories of the perpetrators is contact with the FBI.
Glenn Beck has been ordered to reveal the names of the government officials who told him that a Saudi national was involved in the Boston Marathon bombing, a false story. Was Beck a useful dupe in somebody’s disinformation campaign?
Florida Bulldog, the online news outlet that publicized explosive evidence of connections between the 9/11 hijackers and prominent Saudis, demands to know why the FBI is now disowning a provocative 9/11 report from one of its own agents.
New evidence reveals FBI secretly had Boston Marathon bombing figure Tamerlan Tsarnaev classified as “dangerous” right up until the bombing. The Bureau initially claimed… they didn’t even know him.
Efforts to learn why Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being held “incommunicado” prompted this bizarre answer: the government can’t tell us, because of concerns for his “privacy.”
A close look at Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s just-released interrogation notes casts doubt on some of the facts of the case as presented by the government.
The watchdogs tasked with overseeing the federal government are pushing back against a growing defiance from agencies like the FBI. The agencies’ subtle and not-so- subtle obstruction sheds light on why attempts to fix responsibility for “intelligence failures” — like the probe into the lead-up to the Boston Marathon bombing — typically amount to a whole lot of nothing.
Just like the Boston Marathon bombing, information is starting to trickle out that, despite denials to the contrary, the perpetrators of the nation’s latest dramatic act of terrorism may have been on law-enforcement’s radar prior to the bloodshed.
Convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s lawyers filed a motion last month requesting a new trial, at a different venue. Media superficially covering the filing glossed over an important defense claim: evidence Tsarnaev’s team says shows at least some of the jurors were exposed to “inflammatory” information on their social media feeds.
Middlesex County District Attorney Marian T. Ryan wants Dzhokhar Tsarnaev to stand trial for the murder of MIT cop Sean Collier and the shootout in Watertown, Massachusetts. According to experts, individuals charged with federal capital crimes are almost never subsequently charged with local crimes. Does DA Ryan think the federal charges might not stick upon appeal?
