How come the idiot college students did not know it was bomber #2. Too busy on their cell phones. His picture was clearly everywhere before he went back to his school and mingled with friends and ate a free macaroni dinner at the college. Are you frigging kidding me? And his car mechanic must have known it was him. C'mon people. That's called not getting involved. That cop would not be dead if these people would have stepped up and turned him in.
I wondered about that too. What about Tamerlan's wife? His in laws? Everyone who grew up with the younger one? No one recognized either of them?!

No dumb ass, they targeted soldiers not women and children. And they also commited to battle formations. You remember redcoats and bluecoats?
They deliberately targeted officers in what was at that time seen as irregular conduct. Furthermore, whenever they faced Brits in head-to-head Beatles, they lost or took severe casualties. I have no problem with that, but to say that the Taliban only attacks women and children is something you can take to someone else. I know several combat vets from AFGHANISTAN who got shot at. Did the Taliban consider them as civilians? Furthermore, are you saying that our drone pilots do not target areas where civilians live??

Massachusetts - A federal judge in Boston has sentenced a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang with a long criminal record to 21 years in prison for possession of a firearm and ammunition after committing a felony, prosecutors said.
Eric Franco, 38, was the sergeant-at-arms for the Hells Angels chapter in Lynn, a statement from US Attorney Carmen Ortiz said. He was convicted of the charges in September and sentenced Tuesday in US District Court in Boston.
In May, Lynn police arrested Franco after finding the gun and ammunition in his apartment while investigating a report that Franco was assaulting his girlfriend, the statement said.
Franco's criminal record already included three convictions for assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and convictions for indecent assault and battery, failure to register as a sex offender, breaking and entering with intent to commit a felony, and conspiracy to violate the controlled substances act.
He was also convicted in Arkansas on an assault and battery in the second degree charge after he and five other Hells Angels stabbed four members of another gang, the prosecutors' statement said.
Also today, the State Police announced that they had arrested four suspects and executed multiple search warrants on the North Shore as part of a probe into criminal activities of the Hells Angel and Red Devils motorcycle clubs.
Two of the four suspects arrested were Hells Angels; two others were Red Devils. Two other suspects are still being sought. All six face charges of kidnapping, mayhem, and extortion, State Police said.
The charges stem from acts committed against one male victim. State Police said no further details were being released about the victim or the crimes.

Fact remains, arabs attack women and children DELIBERATELY, drones arent selective. These moslem bastards even use them as human shields, real warriors dont. They are cowards! They've tried before and will again but will never defeat the jews. They dont have the smarts, organizational skills or warrior skills to ever achieve it. You hold them in high esteem? Go join them in battle. See how long your lifespan will be. And when you stand before god and find out his name isnt allah, priceless! LOL

As for the Tsarnaev's...
the oldests one - Tamerlan - visited Dagestan last year and they say he "stood out as an American".
He spoke Russian but with an accent and "would slip into English if he didn't remember a word".
That is the OLDEST one, the "leader".
The younger brother spoke English (American English) without an accent.
Both were pretty thoroughly Americanized, though I'm sure they would have been horrified to realize it.
Remember those American 2 teens who went overseas to join Islam terrorists?? The Muslims didn't trust them! They were AMERICANS.
And so were these two.
I seriously doubt they would have been deemed trustworthy enough to be recruited or supported by anyone in Dagestan or Chechnya.
Russians warned Americans about the oldest one. Also what was he doing there for 6 month? He had a young wife in America.

Good article from the Boston Globe..

http://www.bostonglobe.com/news/nation/2013/0...

"WASHINGTON -- Russian authorities alerted the US government not once but ``multiple’’ times over their concerns about Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- including a second time nearly a year after he was first interviewed by FBI agents in Boston -- raising new questions about whether the FBI should have focused more attention on the suspected Boston Marathon bomber, according to US senators briefed on the probe Tuesday.

The FBI has previously said it interviewed Tsarnaev in early 2011 after it was initially contacted by the Russians. After that review, the FBI has said, it determined he did not pose a threat.

In a closed briefing on Tuesday, members of the Senate Intelligence Committee learned that Russia alerted the United States about Tsarnaev in ``multiple contacts’’-- including ``at least once since October 2011,’’ said Richard Burr, a Republican of North Carolina, speaking with reporters afterward.

Senators said the briefing also revealed failures among federal agencies to share vital information about Tsarnaev, indicating, they said, that the US government still has not established a strong system to ``connect the dots’’ about would-be terrorists residing in America more than a decade after 9/11."

We're STILL screwing the pooch when it comes to security, despite the Bush government's claims that the creation of the Homeland Security Agency would share info across organizations and prevent this kind of thing.

Disgraceful. Can we get a BI-PARTISAN and serious investigation into this? One which doesn't just point fingers at Obama or one or the other party and just finds out what went wrong?

That'd be quite a trick...

The state department was probably in the process of granting the elder political asylum and a monthly stipend. They like to do that with anyone that Russia warns them about.
