The 'Lone Wolves' Theory On Bombing Explodes As Boston Police Arrest More Suspects
Yet another piece of the careful meme the Obama Administration put out about the Boston Bombing is apparently crumbling.
Boston police have arrested 3 more suspectsand charged them with aiding and abetting the Tsarnaevs and obstructing justice 'after the fact' :
Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested and accused Wednesday of removing a backpack containing fireworks emptied of gunpowder from Tsarnaev’s dorm room three days after the attack to try to keep him from getting into trouble.
Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev were charged with conspiring to obstruct justice. A third man, Robel Phillipos, was charged with lying to investigators about the visit to Tsarnaev’s room.
In court papers, the FBI said Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev agreed to throw the backpack in the garbage — it was later found in a landfill by law enforcement officers — after concluding from news reports that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was one of the bombers.
They also apparently knew that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had bomb making skills.
Actually 're-arrest' is the correct term. This trio hail from Kazakhstan, like the Tsarnaevs are also Muslims allowed into the U.S. on student visas and were originally picked up as associates of the Tsarnaevs. One of them drove the car with the license plate 'Terrorista #1' and all three violated their visas by not bothering to attend classes...I wonder why.
But wait, there's more.
The intelligence sent to the U.S also apparently referenced three Pakistanis, and pressure cooker bombs are a signature explosive device of the Pakistani Taliban. Not only are they common, but they're easily detonated remotely from, a cell phone.
It's not at all far fetched that Tamerlan Tsarnaev received training in manufacturing this kind of IED during the six months he was overseas before he returned to the U.S. to take advantage with the rest of his family of America's welfare system, attend a radical mosque and plan his jihad attack.
That's becoming apparent to a lot of people interested in finding out that happened rather than merely covering for some pretty obvious intel failures.
One of them is Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas and Chairman of the House Committee on Homeland Security. who said on Fox News Sunday, “I think given the level of sophistication of this device, the fact that the pressure cooker is a signature device that goes back to Pakistan, Afghanistan, leads me to believe — and the way they handled these devices and the tradecraft — … that there was a trainer and the question is where is that trainer or trainers.”
And we haven't even fully investigated the possible connection to the Tsarnaevs of Saudi nationals with major ties to al-Qaeda.
That was important enough for DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano to lie about to Congress.
Rep. McCaul is going to be holding hearings on the Boston Bombings, and no doubt some more useful information is going to be uncovered.
