"Boston bombing suspects: Tsarnaevs' motive in attack sought":
"Bettencourt, the University of Massachusetts student, said he saw Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at the campus gym the day after the bombing. “I talked to him about it like he was a regular kid,” Bettencourt said. He recalled Dzhokhar Tsarnaev saying, “tragedies happen.”"and:
"The two brothers displayed an amateurish modus operandi, failing to disguise themselves from cameras, suggesting they were motivated by feelings of social alienation as immigrants in the U.S., said Philip Mudd, a former CIA deputy director in the agency’s Counterterrorist Center. “They didn’t have an after-action plan,” Mudd said on CNN’s “Fareed Zakaria GPS” program Monday. “This looks more to me like Columbine than it does like al-Qaeda,” Mudd said on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to the 1999 high school shootings in Columbine, Colo., by two teenage boys that killed 12 students and a teacher, and wounded 21."Authorities have quietly reversed themselves on the 7-11 robbery, probably realizing that the brothers' desperate need for money and their complete unpreparedness for any kind of escape makes a mockery of the Official Story.
"The FBI Boston-Chechnya charade" The elder brother probably wasn't radicalized in Chechnya, he was probably spying for the Americans.

Note how American authorities managed to enforce martial law over the entire city of Boston, with not only nary a peep of protest from 'civil libertarians', but with actual cheering by the populace for the police. This will be an excellent precedent for the American government. Note also the big deal made about the 'emergency exception' to the reading of Miranda Rights. This connects to the American right-wing fantasy, now swallowed whole by American 'progresssives', of the '24' scenario - I have to say served up directly from Israel - of imminent terrorist danger requiring immediate questioning, an outright lie in this case as we later found out that Dzhokhar was on death's door, physically unable to speak or communicate in any way. Still, they had to reinforce the idea of terrorism always trumping civil rights, an idea beloved by both right and 'left'.
