Re: Boston marathon explosions
I'm pretty sure we'll never know the answer to that question.That piece of news was only mentioned a few times on the day of the bombings and then never mentioned again.
It seems clear that Russian Intellegence knew something,if not exactly whom was responsible for the bombings.
The good thing is that the younger of the two was taken alive.He clearly could have taken his own life or chosen the "suicide by cop" option.He seems to want to live and I'm sure in a death penalty case,will trade useful intellegence for his life.Cooperating with the FBI is the ONLY thing that will keep him alive.
It seem also that he wasn't buying the 72 virgins and the river of honey nonsense.
Some will complain that the taxpayer will now have to foot the bill for his incarceration but if the information gleened here even saves one life,say another 8 year old childs life,then its worth every penny it cost the taxpayer to keep him alive.
It was nice to see the heartfelt thank you for a job well done by law enforcement from the civilians in Boston and Watertown.My thanks also goes out to my fellow brothers and sisters in blue for a job that was done in a spectacular fashion.
My condolences to the family of the MIT police officer,who was assinated in his own radio car.
My best wishes also go out the 15 officers who sustained wounds by gun fire and shrapnel from explosives.These cops though wounded continued to ADVANCE on the two, till the older brother opted to commit his "suicide by cop" option and ran toward the advancing police officers.
These are the men and women who run toward the gun fire,when everybody else is running away.
