The father of the brothers says that they had regular contact with the FBI since 2011. Maybe you people should open your eyes a little wider? The next vulnerable patsy is already lined up, in the pay of your country's government, being supplied with weapons in order to do your government`s dirty work. Time to grow up America. Maybe start by learning to read? The Wall St Journal is once place you could start.

I'm fairly certain that anyone here, myself included, would desperately want for our children to be innocent if accused of a crime like this. I`m also fairly certain we would say some of the same things the father,aunt,and uncle have said.
Again as I stated in a different thread, what is needed is for people to wait for all the facts before rushing to snap judgements.
The whole Alex Jones/4chan debacle should make everyone who is interested in the truth feel the same way.

@Blackcatseye: Nowhere in the WSJ coverage of the Boston Marathon bombers is the statement made that they had "regular contact with the FBI since 2011."
At the suggestion of the Russian government, the FBI paid ONE visit to the older brother in 2011, during which (according to the father) the FBI said they were aware of the websites Tamarlan Tsarnaev was visiting (jihadist websites, I would guess) and the phone calls he was making.
According to the WSJ, the FBI was unable to find anything about the older brother that was seriously incriminating, reported as much back to Russia, and moved on. After that one visit, according to the WSJ, "the FBI had no further interaction with him."
That's a far cry from both brothers having "regular contact with the FBI since 2011," as you`re claiming.
Hey, I appreciate your suggestion that Americans should "grow up" and learn to read. But I think we`re good, thanks.

blackcatseye, if you believe the WSJ is a non-biased source of legitimate news and commentary, I would like to sell you the Statue of Liberty. Please IM me for payment details.

To be clear, Ollie, I wasn't saying this is not religion! At all! I`m a long standing critic of religion--almost *all* religions as they are practiced by mankind are bigoted, discriminatory and punitive. I`ve got no problem calling out radicals of all religious stripes. And there are plenty of examples. In the description, I was paraphrasing the Uncle. And I do see what he was getting at, but, obviously, religion as practiced by man is what radicalized these two. My apologies for not being more clear about what I was saying there.
I did like the Uncle`s description of the United States. I think he nailed that!
