FBI Version of NY/NJ Bombing Story Sounds Very Familiar

There are some striking similarities between the recent New York/New Jersey bombings and the Boston Marathon bombing, including the use of pressure cooker bombs. But the similarity that really should be ringing everyone’s alarm bells — yet apparently has not — is the revelation that the FBI had prior connections with both bombing suspects.


A number of contradictions and discrepancies in the FBI’s account of those contacts prompts troubling questions about whether the FBI is coming clean about its interest in Ahmad Khan Rahami.

Boston Bombing Prosecutor: Witnesses ‘Afraid’ to Testify

1The Boston Marathon bombing is much more important than has been acknowledged, principally because it is the defining domestic national security event since 9/11—and has played a major role in expanding the power of the security state.

DzhokharTsarnaevGavelCiting deep, lingering emotions, close associations with victims or investigators and extensive bias exhibited on juror questionnaires, attorneys for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzkhokhar Tsarnaev have once again asked an appellate court to grant a change of venue.

They’ve also requested U.S. District Court Judge George A. O’Toole Jr. stop jury selection until the First Court of Appeals rules on their motion–their second appeal in six weeks. It argues, in part, that:

The Curious Timing of the Boston Bombing Documents Release

Journalists refer to a “news dump” when information is revealed at a time that makes it unlikely that much coverage will be devoted to it. That is why administrations often release potentially damaging information on Friday afternoons, for example.

And that makes the timing of the latest information dump in the Boston Marathon bombing case particularly interesting. The newly unsealed court documents were made available the day before the biggest day for Massachusetts journalists this year – Super Tuesday and the primary in their state.

In other words, there is no better day this year to “bury” news in Boston and, View article …

Boston Bombing Iron Curtain

A federal judge has rejected the American Civil Liberties Union’s request to file written arguments in support of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who stands accused in the Boston Marathon bombing.

Such arguments are known as amicus briefs, or “friend of the court” briefs, and are filed by third parties who wish to offer legal arguments that may be relevant in a case.  Federal trial judges rarely accept such briefs, which are typically filed not at the trial but at the appellate level.  But the denial is unusual for View article …
