Boston Marathon Muslim terrorist bomber says he WAS motivated by Islam and the brothers acted alone. (And if you believe they acted alone I have a nice bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you)
Another story below from Israeli Intelligence source Debka, claims the brothers were double agents but I cannot confirm it:
UK Daily Mail The surviving Boston Marathon bombing suspect has claimed he and his brother were not linked to any Islamic terrorist groups, in scrawled responses to Guantanamo Bay interrogators who have been interviewing him in hospital.
According to CNN, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, has told police his older brother, Tamerlan, 26, was the ring leader in the attacks that shook the nation a week ago, but that the pair were working alone.
Officials said on Monday they believe religion was the motive for the twin bombings that killed three people and injured around 170 at last Monday’s race. The two brothers, who were born in Russia, practiced Islam. In preliminary interviews with Dzhokhar, the terror suspect said his brother wanted to defend Islam from attack, a source told CNN.
Two U.S. officials said today that evidence from the bedside interrogation suggests the terror suspects did not have any accomplices, despite previous fears they were part of a 12-man terror ‘sleeper cell.’
One of the brothers, Tamerlan, 26, died in a police shootout on Friday. The other brother, Dzhokhar, 19, was formally charged today with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction after being questioned by federal officials in his hospital room where he is recovering from multiple injuries.
Investigators have been quizzing Tsarnaev about whether there were more bombs, explosives or weapons beyond the ones already uncovered by police as well as who came up with the plot.
It was earlier reported that the 1,000 strong FBI investigation team was working furiously to track down the 12-strong terror cell to guard against any further attacks on American soil.
On Saturday afternoon, two 19-year-old men from Kazakhstan thought to be friends of the Boston brothers were arrested – as it was revealed the pair drove around in a black BMW with vanity plates that read ‘TERROISTA#1.’
The two men who own a BMW with the license plate ‘Terrorista #1’ and who are said to be friends with the younger Boston bombing suspect were taken into custody again on Saturday.
This time the two foreign nationals were arrested over alleged immigration violations in the Massachusetts town of New Bedford, where police say the surviving suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, may have once lived. The students, named by neighbors by their first names Azmat and Diaz, drive a black BMW 330XI with the personalized plate and a sticker on the back which reads: ‘F*** you, you f****** f****.’
‘We have no doubt the brothers were not acting alone. The devices used to detonate the two bombs were highly sophisticated and not the kind of thing people learn from Google,’ a source earlier told the Daily Mirror newspaper of the UK.
‘They were too advanced. Someone gave the brothers the skills and it is now our job to find out just who they were. Agents think the sleeper cell has up to a dozen members and has been waiting several years for their day to come.’
But the Boston Mayor Tom Menino said the briefings he has been privy to assure him that the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing acted alone.
