    Eh, he and most world leaders always offer help after terrorism. I don't know that there's any reason to believe he was in the know at that point.

    Not so easy to kill when you're face to face with someone?

    Had the guy who owned the Mercedes not called 911 to report the carjacking, they would have stood a much greater chance of disappearing.
    i guess you missed the part about..... exposing themselves.

    Tamerlan fled Chechnya with his family because of the conflict in the early 90s, and lived for years in Kazakhstan before getting to the United States as a refugee.
    Originally from Chechnya, but living in the United States since five years, Tamerlan says: "I don't have a single American friend, I don't understand them."
    Tamerlan says he doesn't drink or smoke anymore: "God said no alcohol." A muslim, he says: "There are no values anymore," and worries that "people can't control themselves."

    Original source: Will Box For Passport - Images | Johannes Hirn (highlight photos to get quotes from Tamerlan)

    It was originally found by Reddit, but they're getting attacked right now so I'm trying not to send them any more hits.
    You're a good slueth, PD.

    Mika Brazin....on MSNBC just called it the "Boston Marathon 'shooting".... No agenda on her mind....

    Really? Huh. The eyewitness said that they threw a pressure cooker bomb at cops, then the dead brother ran straight at them and surrendered (not apparently before he was shot) which allowed white hat to jump in a vehicle and drive right through the police line. Certainly possible he hit his brother on the way out.

Or could be they got spooked at their safe house and decided to bolt. Or maybe a little of both. Its hard to say till we get more info. Most of what I am throwing out at this point is pure speculation.
    it's a very fluid situation.

    i got to stop watching the news for a couple of hours before i go nuts!! lol.

    Yeah that doesn't make sense.. seems like big bro decided to go suicide bomber to give lil bro a chance to do more damage.

    Before what? The bombing - no. There's too much to speculate on. If they're Chechen with a history of fighting I'd guess they've been monitored by the Russian and/or American gov's.

    I phrased that poorly. Either Russia was aware of their history or both were.
