BOSTON (AP) Every time the widow of suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev leaves her parents' house, federal agents watching the residence follow her in unmarked vehicles.
Federal authorities are placing intense pressure on what they know to be the inner circle of the two bombing suspects, arresting three college buddies of surviving brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and keeping Tamerlan's 24-year-old widow, Katherine Russell, in the public eye with their open surveillance and leaks to media about investigators' focus on her.
Legal experts say it's part of their quest not just to determine whether Russell and the friends are culpable but also to push for as much information as possible regarding whether the bombing suspects had ties to a terrorism network or accomplices working domestically or abroad. A primary goal is to push the widow and friends to give their full cooperation, according to the experts.

Gee, it took “experts” to figure that out?
I don’t how she walks away without any court action and two or three years in prison. She had to know what they were up to, and she had to recognize the picture on TV when he appeared. I’m sorry she’s such a dimwit on this stuff and that naive...but if you marry into radical Islam....you’d best be prepared for a short life, or a prison period somewhere in the mess.
I agree. She had to know. There is no way she didn’t.
Living in a small apartment. Listening & talking with her husband & brother in law. Hell yes, she knew what was going on.
Agree, it does not seem plausible for her to be completely unaware. Perhaps she was bullied into staying quiet or maybe she thought her husband was too smart to get caught. It’s all fun and games until something goes wrong.
I want to know why she still has access to her child.
If a child has been exposed to bomb making etc., whether she thought they were making bombs or working on her husband’s school science project- why hasn’t her child been taken away?
What’s to stop her from blowing up both of them?
Children have been whisked away by the state for all kinds of crazy potential reasons-in this case, it seems pretty clear the child was around BOMBS and is part of a terrorist family unit...
Arrest her, threaten her with prison and permanent removal of her child. She will talk.
Or she will strap a bomb on the kid.
She called him to warn him....Why isn’t she in jail?? I’d say daddy has some pull.
Thanks for posting this.
It takes a while to rehearse her in what they want her to say.
Boston Bombing Ping!
Does she speak russian or chechnyan (if there is such a language)? Perhaps the brothers spoke russian and she did not understand.
When do they stop calling Tamerlan Tsarnaev ‘suspected’ Boston Marathon bomber? He’s dead, can’t go to court.
What I don’t get is the fed focus on him having either domestic OR foreign assistance. Why can’t it be both? Seems like they are limiting themselves and the investigation that way. He likely had foreign help and inspiration and domestic Islamist sympathizers and financing.
I know the political reasons for wanting to find that he was ‘self radicalized’ but for national security, they had better start realizing that no one is self radicalized in Islam. They are taught!
Just spouting off..so frustrating to watch the wheels coming off some of our greatest agencies under this incompetent Marxist president.
IMHO the good guys are on this and hopefully it will shed enough light on the jihadi loving administration - along with what’s happening with Benghazi - to lead to serious legal consequences for the perps. And I don’t mean just the individuals involved in the bombings - I mean those covering up and aiding and abetting from a distance.
Thanks for the ping Ernest.
I wondered about that, too.
What if she wants to go out in a 'blaze of glory', what if she has overwhelming guilt, what if she can't stand to look at the child whose father committed such deeds as in Boston.
What's to keep her from strapping any man, woman, or (her) child with a suicide vest?
A mother killing her child?
Counterintuitive, but its happened before.
The child could be in a lot of peril - her parents, too.
US is keeping an eye on her but maybe other people are, too.
I'd through my lot with the US officials. Others might kill her child - child really needs to be in top secret protective care away from Russell AND her parents...they are targets from lots of angles, I would think...
We have a winner! I used to be a CPS worker so I know any of us could have our kids taken away for the mere suspicion of not wiping cookie crumbs off their face but this child is most definitely in a very dangerous environment. If she continues to stay in her parents' home, then put the child in her sister's care and have the sister keep her far, far away.
Frankly, I can't understand how her parents could take her in. According to her Aunt Elizabeth Russell, Katherine's islamic change and marriage broke the extended family up and most didn't attend their wedding. Sorry, but if my kid, relative or friend was involved in any of this, that would be the end. IMO, she might not have detonated the bombs but she certainly knew they were being built and how much her husband hated America. She did nothing to stop them so she's just as guilty. Whould she have called the authories if she knew one of her friends or family had gone to the race? I wonder how many people had mentioned to her in the days before that they were going to go but she said nothing.
Her parents are not dimwits so doubtful she is a dimwit. She just got involved and brainwashed in this dumbass cult. Her father is a Yale trained MD and her mother is a nurse....not dimwits
PROVIDENCE, R.I. Katherine Russell was a talented artist, a good student who grew up Christian, the daughter of a suburban doctor.
Then she went off to college in Boston.
A few years later, she had dropped out of school, converted to Islam and was Katherine Tsarnaeva, wife of a man who would become a suspect in the deadly Boston Marathon bombings and a subject of one of the biggest manhunts in American history.
They are trying to pass that awful Rubio-Obama Amnesty bill....and if it is discovered that there was direct foreign involvement.... Illegal Alien Amnesty is dead
They want this widow to be involved somehow
Might be arrangements were made that she stay with her parents..(supervised)...they had an attorney almost immediately for her...once it was known it was her husband who bombed the marathon.....and that attorney is no newbee at law.
But with her work hours as they were, I could see the brothers making bombs without her knowlege.....heck woman at home, as he was all day, have had affairs and the husband didn’t know. They could have easily worked on them and then shuffle them off someplace...even in the younger kids car...they weren’ real bright about many things.
However her computer loaded with ISlamic Terrorist stuff..and bomb making...well now pretty hard to think she didn’t know.... just with that on her computer alone.
That would then assume she knew about the bombs no matter what her working hours were.
Thats all just FBI dandy. But the FBI is not telling us that the Widow Tsarneav is lawyered up and protected by Obamas Community Organizers, and the Muslim Brotherhood.
You know, the little liberal fascists whose federal magistrate intervened in the interrogation of Suspect #2, and who prevented his classification as an enemy combatant?
If that had been done we would have all the information we needed, and Suspect 1 and 2, one dead and ome alive, would be buried in Guantanamo Bay , where they belong. As it is if Suspect 1 is buried in Worcestor, MA, there will be riots and his grave will undoubtedly be desecrated, just the kind of social disorder Obama wants to amplify and foment into “revolution” between white people and minorities.
We have an angry president who wants to punish America.So far he is doing a pretty good job of it.
