If Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were imprisoned in any other country, he’d be described as being held incommunicado. But since he’s a terrorism suspect in America, he’s incarcerated under “Special Administrative Measures.” Here’s why that’s a much bigger threat to the truth than it sounds.

The only witness to the Boston Marathon bombing confession has provided dramatically inconsistent accounts, an exclusive WhoWhatWhy investigation reveals. The clashing stories, coming from a man whose identity remains shrouded, form the basis for the publicly accepted narrative of the bombing and its aftermath.
The discrepancies involve the nature and length of the carjacking episode, and raise serious questions as to whether the anonymous witness was ever a captive of the alleged bombers. This in turn touches on the credibility of his claim to have received a confession from Tamerlan Tsarnaev.
In fact, the problems with this witness’s story cast doubts on almost everything we have been told about what has been described as the largest terrorist attack on American soil since 9/11.
In this lengthy review of the newly released, but selectively blacked-out, government inspectors general report on the Boston Marathon Bombing, we read carefully between the lines and find some astonishing possibilities. Including a remarkable explanation of why so very many government officials seem afraid to speak the truth, and why it seems possible to pull off an almost impossible cover-up. Here, perhaps, is why so many things about Boston’s tragedy don’t add up—and why so many people appear to be keeping their mouths shut about what they know, or at least suspect.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is accused of harassing friends of Ibragim Todashev, the Chechen immigrant who was shot and killed by an FBI agent in Orlando, Florida, under unexplained circumstances during a late-night interrogation five months ago. Todashev was a friend of one of the Boston bombing suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Two more friends are now behind bars in what advocates say is part of a campaign of intimidation. Just why this is happening remains unclear.
Recently, we published evidence of disturbing contradictions in the public accounts of the man who put the guilty stamp on the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston bombing case. In this second part of a series, we take an in-depth look at that man, the mystery witness. We examine his crucial but little understood role in rapidly ending the investigation of the bombing. Meet “Danny,” the “magic bullet” of the Boston bombing story.
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?
Judge George O’Toole Jr. excluded the press from what’s supposed to be a public trial, in a case that’s already been swathed in secrecy. Here’s the latest on the trial of Boston Marathon Bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, reported by WhoWhatWhy’s team in and out of the courtroom.
A new book by an author with a mainstream pedigree reinforces WhoWhatWhy’s skepticism that the FBI is coming clean about what led up to the Boston Marathon bombing.
Traditional news outlets have all but abdicated their duty to ask the hard questions. Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen is a case in point – he’s on a first-name basis with the police involved in Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s capture.
