Radical Alleged Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev Told Mom in 2011: I Am Willing to Die for Islam

Suspected Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev sent text messages to his mother as early as 2011 indicating he was willing to give his life for Islam, Fox News reports.

The revelation was reportedly made during a Capitol Hill briefing on Tuesday during which the FBI told lawmakers about the discovery.

Investigators believe Tsarnaev, who was killed several days after the April 15 Boston bombing in a shootout with police, became more radicalized in his Islamic views in recent years. He is thought to have recruited his 19-year-old brother to help carry out the deadly terrorist attack that killed three innocent people and wounded more than 180 more.

“Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was caught alive but wounded on Friday and charged with use of a weapon of mass destruction, for which he could get the death penalty,” Fox News reports.

In another stunning new development, U.S. officials on Wednesday said the name of the dead suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was added by the CIA to a terrorist database 18 months ago. The officials spoke to The Associated press on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing case.

Fox News has more insight into the future prosecution of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

6 of the Most Interesting Things We Learned From the Boston Bomber Affidavit

Federal prosecutors on Monday charged Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, with using a weapon of mass destruction to kill three during the Boston Marathon. If guilty, the accused terrorist could face the death penalty.

Law enforcement officials also released the full criminal complaint against Tsarnaev. Here are three of the most interesting things we learned from our first read of the legal complaint:

6. What about the MIT officer?

Missing from the affidavit is any mention of the MIT shootout. On the night of the hijacking, an MIT police officer was shot and killed in his car allegedly by one of the Tsarnaev brothers, according to initial reports.

It’s curious that this part of the Boston terror ordeal has been left out of the affidavit. Why do you suppose that is?

5. Injury count higher than expected?

Authorities estimate that the injury count from the bombings to have passed 200, higher than all earlier estimates, according to the criminal complaint against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

4) Building a case

Following the capture of Dzhokhar on Friday, police say they found a jacket and hat during a search of his room that match the ones he wore at the Boston Marathon.

3. A confession

Dzhokhar and his now-deceased brother Tamerlane, 26, allegedly hijacked a car on April, 18, according to the affidavit. This is what the victim of the hijacking told law enforcement agents when asked about the ordeal [emphasis added]:

The victim states that while he was sitting in his car on a road in Cambridge, a man approached and tapped on his passenger-side window. When the victim rolled down the window, the man reached in, opened the door, and entered the victim’s vehicle. The man pointed a firearm at the victim and stated, “Did you hear about the Boston explosion?” and “I did that.” The man removed the magazine from his gun and showed the victim that it had a bullet in, and then re-inserted the magazine. The man then stated, “I am serious.”

2. What the hijacking victim went through

The hijacking victim, according to the complaint, had quite an ordeal that Thursday night:

One of the men compelled the victim to hand over his ATM card and password. They then drove to an ATM machine and attempted to withdraw money from the victim’s account. The two men and the victim then drove to a gas station/convenience store … the two men got out of the car, at which point the victim managed to escape.

1) Did the suspected bombers trigger the explosions with use cell phones?

Moments before the first explosion, “Bomber Two” (Dzhokhar Tsarnaev) was captured on security cameras fidgeting with his phone, according to the affidavit:

… video shows that Bomber Two remained in the same spot for approximately four minutes, occasionally looking at his cell phone and once appearing to take a picture with it. At some point he appears to look at his phone, which is held at approximately waist level, and may be manipulating the phone. Approximately 30 seconds before the first explosion, he lifts his phone to his ear as if he is speaking on his cell phone, and keeps it there for approximately 18 seconds. A few seconds after he finishes the call, the large crowd of people around him can be seen reacting to the first explosion. Virtually every head turns to the east (towards the finish line) and stares in that direction in apparent bewilderment.

Were the bombs triggered by cell phones or was Bomber Two simply talking to a friend or an associate? If the surviving brother is found guilty, and it turns out cell phones were used to trigger the explosions, will this set a precedent for authorities to kill cell service during the fog of future attacks?

Here’s the full complaint:

New York Times Publishes & Then Revises Article Mocked as Too Sympathetic to Boston Bomber Suspects

As certain “new media” outlets continue to try to piece together the puzzle that is the Brothers Tsarnaev, one “traditional media” outlet on Friday published a seemingly sympathetic article on the suspected Boston Bombers:

New York Times Actually Published an Article Titled, Far From War Torn Homeland, Trying to Fit in

The Daily Caller.

Before all the facts are in, before either brother has been formerly accused of anything (remember, they’re still suspects), the New York Times actually published a piece titled, “Far from war-torn homeland, trying to fit in.”

Soon after the article went live, The Daily Caller’s Jim Treacher took screen shots and distributed them on social media.

The Times, roundly mocked for its seemingly sympathetic ode to the suspected Boston Bombers, eventually tweaked the article, according to TheDC’s Christopher Bedford.

“[T]he Times changed the layout of the page to one more seemingly aware of the hundreds of victims and their friends and families, the entire United States and much of the non-terrorist planet,” Bedford writes.

New York Times Actually Published an Article Titled, Far From War Torn Homeland, Trying to Fit in

TheDC.

The newly-revised article has done away with the phrases “war-torn” and “trying to fit in.”

“The image of a man looking at an image of one of the suspected terrorists is still on the page and links to a boring video about what Chechnya is,” Bedford notes.

Now it’s important to note that, and Bedford back us up on this, article layouts are usually done by editors and not by the actual journalist. So an editor is most likely responsible for the first edition of the “War-Torn” article.

“When TheDC performed a Google search for ‘far from homeland, trying to fit in,’ the original title and layout was apparent. The two links at the top of the page link to the same page on The New York Times’ website,” TheDC notes:

New York Times Actually Published an Article Titled, Far From War Torn Homeland, Trying to Fit in

TheDC.

“But a Google search still shows that someone at The New York Times is an idiot,” Bedford flatly states. “Google is often a nuisance to public figures and institutions because it makes it more difficult to hide stupidity.”
