Boston bombing suspect cites U.S. wars as motivation, officials say (Bush's fault)
Washington Post ^ | April 23, 2013 | By Scott Wilson, Greg Miller and Sari Horwitz

Posted on 04/23/2013 1:55:24 PM PDT by Brad from Tennessee

The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has told interrogators that the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack, according to U.S. officials familiar with the interviews.

--------------snip------------------------------

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe an ongoing investigation, said Dzhokhar and his older brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, who was killed by police as the two attempted to avoid capture, do not appear to have been directed by a foreign terrorist organization.

Rather, the officials said, the evidence so far suggests they were “self-radicalized” through Internet sites and U.S. actions in the Muslim world. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has specifically cited the U.S. war in Iraq, which ended in December 2011 with the removal of the last American forces, and the war in Afghanistan, where President Obama plans to end combat operations by the end of 2014. . .

I believe he said it.

Obama and muslims have the same worldview.

Well, I guess this about raps this case up. I guess they accomplished "their" goals.

I wonder what "their" next act will be.

Seems more likely the islamist terrorists were motivated by the sequester.

I wonder if he was part of the Occupy Movement? He sounds a lot like they do with regard to foreign policy. Funny, it looks like he falls on the side of Radical Muslims and Lefties. (We need to check the photos from Occupy Boston)

So this little scumbag, who swore allegiance to the USA, was not perturbed at all by the cowardly attacks by his fellow jihadists on the USA, but rather he was motivated by the consequences to do the same thing? Special kind of stupidcrazy right there...

Amazing how this turns into "Bush's fault". So now suspicions can be raised this was false flag. I am SICK to my stomach as to my government protecting and defending Islam. It is there inroads to subverting our Christian foundation, sponsored by the Saudi government. 0bama's handlers make themselves known now.

The degree to which there is a cover-up in progress by the FBI and DHS is epic. This makes Fast & Furious and Benghazi look like child's play. Where are these bomber's firearms traced to? We'll never get an answer to that.

Right off the bat, in your very own post you completely steal my basic theme.

You are forgiven.

Indeed, how convenient that it is that the Government is illegally putting out information that supports it's Lone Wolf version of events. Color me skeptical.

OTHO, I really doubt if even The One has the power to control the data flowing from Chechnya and/or Dagestan. So I think we will learn the truth despite the efforts of the Administration to suppress it. But of course we are the 5%. For the other 95% it is doubtful.

The anonymous “officials” in this story are likely in the White House rather than law enforcement.

“The 19-year-old suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings has told interrogators that the American wars ... motivated him and his brother to carry out the attack”

Wow, just like bill Ayres and Bernardine Dohrn!

Now we have two NEW heroes for Obama to worship! And these two guys are even better than Ayres and Dohrn because the new guys are doing it for Muslimism!

Bush's fault.

OK, what prompted Bush's (actually America's) response, i.e. 9-11-2001, didn't count? Apparently so.

Since they dropped two bombs at Boston Marathon, and other killing, more IEDs.

So sick and tired of the “Bush's war” meme.

Look on the bright side... the narrative has thus far been they were just normal yutes that snapped with no real terrorist connections. So, if the attacks on Islamic countries motivated them one can logically conclude that either: a) any normal Muslim youth is a potential terrorist willing to murder innocent women and children, or b) it has nothing to do with Islam and any normal American liberal youth is a potential terrorist willing to murder innocent women and children.

The US's war "in the South" lasted about a hundred years because the KKK terrorist insurgency.

BUT the war AGAINST Iraq and the war AGAINST the South each only lasted a couple of years.

Some people mark the beginning of the War with the assassination of RFK in 1968 by the Jordanian/Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan.

The so-called Iraq War was a continuation of Saddam’s hostilities from the original Gulf War. Saddam violated the peace terms repeatedly and even John Kerry made the case in 1998 for going to war against Iraq without UN approval.

Hey, #2 is also blaming the Internet...Of course it was predicted as soon as they ID’d #1 & #2 this would happen.

Before it’s all done and said, #2 will blame the Internet, racism in America, and American bullies in Boston...

It is possible recruitment is funneling through the Occupy movement.

It would be totally easy to recruit someone with an already warped worldview of America/capitalism, no belief in God, PC correct morals etc.

They are weak minded and are easy prey for all kinds of weird philosophies ... Radicalizing them is like writing on a blank piece of paper.

This “reason” for doing it, makes no sense. They didn’t blow up a military facility or a government building. They blew up innocent people running a marathon who have no connection to the war whatsoever. In fact, the cowboy hat guy who is being praised for helping to save lives has been characterized as a “peace activists”. As if those who fight our wars are “war activists” but I digress. That is another story for another day. My whole point is that I would guess that cowboy hat guy may believe the same thing since he’s a “peace activist”.

That reasoning does not wash with me. This was an act of pure terrorism. The type of act that we find in Israel where bombers indiscriminently kill Israelies for the simple fact that they are jews. There’s more to their radicalization than this crap.

Wikipedia:

In April 2002, the Tsarnaev parents and Dzhokhar went to the United States[24][25][26] on a 90-day tourist visa, and the father applied for asylum, citing fears of deadly persecution due to his ties to Chechnya.[27] Tamerlan arrived on his own around 2004.[28] In the U.S. the parents received asylum and then filed for their four children, who were given “derivative asylum status”.[29] In March 2007, the family was granted legal permanent residence in the U.S.[28] The family settled in Massachusetts. Tamerlan lived in Cambridge on Norfolk Street until his death.[30] Both of Tsarnaev’s parents received welfare benefits, and Dzhokhar and Tamerlan were recipients through their parents when they were younger.[31]
