Boston Marathon 'bombers' planned to set off remaining explosives in New York

The suspected Boston Marathon bombers wanted to attack New York — and specifically planned to blow up Times Square before they were captured, authorities said today.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, hatched these plans on the fly, shortly after they carjacked a motorist a week ago tonight.

The younger brother allegedly told investigators of their Big Apple plans this weekend from his hospital bed. FBI interrogators passed on the information to New York officials last night, according to Mayor Bloomberg and NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

Dont worry Nanny Bloomberg, all you had to do was show them a 16 ounce soda(Since they are supposedly more deadly than terrorism right Bloomy) and they would have run in the opposite direction

What is it with New York? Is there some giant arrow in the sky that say “Terrorists attack here”?? You would think D.C. would be the prime target, but no. “Oh Allah hates Times square”

Those plans sound fancy to you? I don’t know... driving to NYC and bombing Times Square sounds pretty simple and predictable to me.

Not buying it. If they had immediate plans, they wouldn’t have been seen partying all over Boston in the days before getting busted.

I kind of think they were alone in this.

Otherwise, why did they need to car jack that guy and steal $800 from his ATM?

If they had help, that would be planned out ahead. Right?

I’m not going to find the various articles for you that have been posted here, but they regularly drove Porshe’s and BMW’s prior to the Boston massacre, and bought several guns, lots of ammo, explosives, and the older bro managed to take a trip “home” for 6 months.

No, I don’t think they planned to be caught. Obviously, they were shocked when the FBI released their photos.

NYPD is much more sophisticated on anti-terror than Boston. I wouldn’t give them much of a chance of setting anything off in Times Square even if they could have gotten out of the city.

Some of the questions we all have may never be answered thanks to the Federal Judge who took it upon herself to Mirandize Joker to get him to shut up.

Here's a theory as good or as bad as anyone else can come up with. Joker and Tammy became radicalized. They decided on their own to bomb Boston, and they could have told other haters of America of their plans, but they did need help assembling the pressure cooker bombs. We might never find out if they learned it on line or if someone assembled the bombs for them. After the bombing, they thought they were in the clear, and might have had further plans for bombing New York, until the initial photos came out, and they knew they were going to get caught.

Now, being spooked, they fled. Why the killed the MIT officer is still unknown, unless they wanted to take his guns. (His pistol and vehicle mounted shotgun.) They may have done the hijacking to provide them with a different vehicle and some money from the victim. Possibly they were planning to kill the victim before anyone knew the victim and his SUV were missing. Unfortunately for them, the victim escaped, and they knew that the hijacked vehicle would be extremely "hot" because they told the victim they did the Boston bombing.

In spite of all of this, they could still have been thinking they could make it to New York to cause more deaths and injuries, but their luck ran out, especially when Joker ran over Tammy. Joker kept running, and hid in a boat. His plans for escape ended when the boat owner stepped outside for a cigarette.

Right.

That sounds plausible.

Even IF there were others involved, they must have been only remotely involved and didn't care or else didn't want to GET closer to these two. Maybe the outsiders felt these guys where just TOO amateurish.

They are probably laughing at the bombers right now. Those two brothers were cut for bait... and truly expendable.

Thanks. I can poke holes in my own theory, but I also think Joker and Tammy were amateurish. An event like the Boston Marathon would have cameras EVERYWHERE. Plus there is the possibility that they may have wandered by an explosives sniffing dog and been found out. One thing they did do that worked in their favor was to wait until the race was half over. I think that the security personnel may have been less vigilant by then.

It seemed like that all along.

Otherwise, how could they be so oblivious to the security cameras all around? How could they be so inept devising an escape plan?

Well sadly their bomb building skills paid off for them. They managed to kill innocent people. They must have felt so proud of themselves.

I wouldn’t dispute the CIA man. Before the first bomb was planted, they had to learn to assemble them. And then they had to test one or two to make sure they actually worked. So, where did they learn to assemble them and test them? More information we might never know thanks to the Federal Judge.

The money thing is suspicious, I wouldn't be surprised if they had direct help, nor would I be surprised the operation was their own. They made mistakes even marginal advice would have corrected, starting with get the *ell out of the area if not the country. New York will be there in six months.

It's my understanding that they had a single Ruger 9mm, and that based on some evidence on his holster, it's thought the MIT officer was murdered for his weapon, which they couldn't dislodge from the holster.

I doubt they planned to be "caught", but I've no doubt they were accepting of their death as the end of their jihad. Several attacks down the road I'm sure. We'll never know most of this stuff. A shame since those planning the next attack are amongst us.

I should have added, this “lone wolf” stuff is nonsense. This wasn’t two misguided yoots coming up with the idea of bombing something. If they acted entirely on their own, if older bro got no training (no, I won’t buy the Brooklyn Bridge from you), if they had no direct support, even if just from family members (don’t want the Golden Gate either), they’re not lone wolves. They acted in accordance with ideology widespread worldwide. And acted in accord with it’s precepts. Hundreds die every week in accordance with the same ideology, fortunately we’ve been spared here post 9/11. But if they’re lone wolves, there are millions of them out there.

An interesting point given the fortunate failure of previous domestic attacks. You can pick up a lot on the web or from the like minded. But if the elder wasn't trained, did they test or were they lucky. Everything seems to have functioned, including what they threw out their car.

It was said by investigators that these two followed the identical behavior, after the bombing, that criminals do when they believe they won’t get caught.

Yep, I agree with your every word, and the most suspicious player in this "event," is the Saudi who was detained, briefly questioned, hospitalized for burns suffered at the Marathon, and then released and I think shipped home at the request of the Saudi's, by the Obama regime itself. It's further reported and illustrated with photos, that Moochelle visited this same young Saudi in the hospital. He's a Saudi VIP who hates America.

The FBI Interrogators were told it by hte kid prior to the Assy Dep Att , the public Defender and a Magistrate Judge showed up to indited him and shut down the interrogation....Foxnews has been talking about it.

Watch the first 30 minutes of the Factor tonight ...or a replay of it.

I will be looking for the news stories,...there bureaucrats may be going to war.

The FBI guys were not happy about their interrogation being shut down!

Allow me to play devil's advocate: I understand that the Bomber confessed to the bombing during the FBI interrogation. Why continue to interrogate after the confession at the risk that the confession could be thrown out under the exclusionary rule if a court were to find that the "publle safety exception" to Miranda was no longer applicable at the time of the confession?
