Skip to comments.Moments leading to fatal FBI shooting in Orlando still unclear (Todashev)
Posted on 05/24/2013 4:07:31 AM PDT by Haiku Guy
An FBI incident review team from Washington, D.C., is in Orlando today, a day after a Russian man who knew Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was shot dead by an agent.
Federal and Central Florida law enforcement agencies are still collecting and processing evidence from the shooting scene at a condominium complex on Peregrine Avenue, near Kirkman Road and Universal Orlando, where Ibragim Todashev was shot early Wednesday.
Initially, FBI officials said Todashev, 27, became violent and lunged at an agent with a knife while he was being questioned about Tsarnaev and an unsolved 2011 triple murder in the Boston suburb of Waltham. The agent, acting on an "imminent threat," then shot Todashev, they said.
However, later in the day, some of those officials had backed off that preliminary account, and it's no longer clear what happened in the moments before the fatal shooting, The Associated Press reported.

Frankly, that one never made sense. If you have a subject secured well enough that he is about to sign a confession, what is he doing with a knife?
I wonder what really happened?
Was he being forced to sign a confession under duress, and it got out of hand? Frankly, I trust the government less than ever, these days...
Of course, this happened before the President said yesterday that he was going to start following the law, more or less, when he gets ‘round to it. So this one doesn’t countsies...
This should add fuel to preexisting Chechen paranoia.
Bet he was surprised when the muslim pr*** in the boat lived after the boat was sprayed with over 200 bullets.
Wow....Another made up story....what a surprise.
We will never learn the truth.
They are even getting sloppy with the cover ups.
I guess being careful isn’t important when the media doesn’t seem to care much.
Ding ding ding. ... We have a winner! You’re right. He must have had something to say that was going to contradict the line of bs hussein and his cohorts are putting together. Can’t have this guy around to end up in front of congress. ...
Witness/suspect in Orlando shot dead? IMHO, protocol would have had the officers frisking the alleged perp before the interview. What happened there?
FBI and MASSACHUSSETTS state police and NO Orlando, Orange County or FDLE personnel present? Just sayin'.....
Chechen friend of Tsarnaev.
Linked to triple throat slitting.
Yeah, there is conspiracy here LOL.
Did this guy know the saudi guy that michelle visited in the hospital?
I think they were probably careless because he appeared to be cooperating and he grabbed somebody’s gun or at least attempted to do so and was shot by one of them. The article mentions two shots.
He was an MMA specialist with a quick temper and it sounds to me as if they might have underestimated him. Also, they were interviewing him at home, on his own turf, which is never a good idea.
Part of the reason for the secrecy is no doubt to avoid tipping off the local Chechens so that they can hide their jihadis, but I wonder if another part isn’t perhaps a local FBI decision to avoid tipping off headquarters (meaning Holder). He has no intention of letting the Boston bombings be thoroughly investigated and has done everything possible to protect the surviving terrorist.
However, later in the day, after several phone calls from the Obama thought police at the WHite House in Washington , D.C.some of those officials in fear of their jobs and their family safety,had backed off that preliminary account, and because of political correctness censorship, it’s no longer clear what happened in the moments before the fatal shooting of the undercover jihadist, The Associated Press reported.
Just another sign that we are all in danger when we become inconvenient - if they will murder potential witness this way, what would stop them from going after citizens who pose a "threat"?
Concocted story equals fabrication and collusion between govt and controlled news media, and what makes sense eventually becomes a conspiracy theory.
Were the 3 murdered under the control of the FBI?
Why else (shades of Whitey Bulger’s alleged
‘license to kill’) would they do this?
They have earned their conspiracy theories, since the last half dozen have come true!
I don't know. But how do you have a preliminary story that the man lunged at an agent with a knife but later on, the story is changed?
Did he lunge with a knife or not?
If he did, why are they changing their story now?
If he didn't, why did they say he did?
Something doesn't add up...
How long can you hide from the truth. I wonder if the man in charge can wag the tail long enough to get out before you start hearing “Obama’s Fault”
Orange County has a Black Liberal Sheriff....so that should tell you all you need to know
Also city of Orlando is mostly Democrat...with Dem mayor and mostly Dem city council
