Mother Of Boston Bombing Suspects Says FBI Was In Contact With Her Son
Business Insider ^ | 4/19/2013 | Grace Wyler

Posted on 04/19/2013 3:35:23 PM PDT by Raebie

Zubeidat K. Tsarnaeva, the mother of Boston bombing suspects Dzhokar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, suggested Friday that the FBI had been surveilling her older son for several years prior to Monday's attack.

In an interview with Russia Today Friday, Tsarnaeva said that Tamerlan Tsarnaev got involved in "religious politics" five years ago, and that the FBI had previously contacted her about her son's activities.

"He was controlled by the FBI, like for three, five years," she said. "They knew what my son was doing, they knew what actions and what sites on the Internet he was going [to], they used to come...and talk to me...they were telling me that he was really a serious leader and they were afraid of him."

Between this, the crazy Aunt in Canada, and Daddy dearest in Russia... I’d say the muzzies are muddying the waters as fast as they can.

I really, really, really hope she is lying. If we find out these monsters were being tracked by the FBI and this happened, well, I don’t know what to say . . . . .

A spokesperson for the FBI told Business Insider Friday that the agency would be putting out a statement “shortly” regarding its previous contact with either of the Tsarnaev suspects. The spokesperson would not confirm or deny that the agency had had any previous contact.”

Just made ABC news, “the FBI interviewed the older brother two years ago at the request of a foreign Government”.

The older one had a history of abusing his girlfriend/wife? (baby’s mama).

That, coupled with his travel history, may have engendered some FBI interest.

The mother is a kook. What she’s saying may have a kernel of truth in it, but most of it is probably rubbish.

Worse.. That the FBI recruited them for a false flag aimed at advancing desensitization and acceptance of the American people to martial law. Not my theory, but A theory for the false flag conspiracy theorists.

She lost all credibility when she said they were set up. Were they set up with the pressure cooker bombs they threw at police, the IEDs lying on the roadway all over the Boston area, or the shots fired from long automatic rifles they were firing at the police?

This outrageous BS.

As I understand it, they tracked down and killed the all. Including razing a village where one was hiding.

I’m sorry, but I wouldn’t be surprised to find out the FBI is told to back off the Muslim immigrants, just like the border patrol is told to back off the Mexican coming over the border demanding amnesty.

I don't know I kind of like Lame Cherry's conspiracy theory for wild leaps it even brings in the North Koreans.

Given Fast & Furious and the utter lack of vigor investigating/prosecuting it I'd have to say I wouldn't put it past the government.

On the image-/suspect-thread a while back there was this:

Note the day: Monday.
If there's a push to villainize gunpowder/reloading and/or the NRA over this then I'd be mighty suspicious.

It is getting scarier and scarier. Even though lots of us are arming up, did you see what the Boston police are using? But then, where I live those machines are useless. It’d be a one on one fight. I built my own ghillie suit and was able to get right up to some LEO’s that were stomping around our forest.

I do not know if this was a set up, nor do I think at this time it was, but did you see any footage of pressure cooker bombs being thrown at cops? Did you see people in that shoot out?

See how easy you could be convinced by what you heard?

I heard the older one/ grease spot/ was home in Chechnya for 6 months last year. For training, I assume.

She may be telling half truths. He was supposed to be deported. ...so they say. if so....because of the ties to Chechnya, he would have gone on a possible bad boy list especially if he was calling overseas.

I'm just hoping that we weren't playing the brothers...or their friends...and it backfired...just like Fast & Furious.

But hey...What does it matter now.

Frankly....I think there was lotsa chatter FROM RUSSIA and we ignored it.
