Boston Suspects: New Background Details

April 19 -- Bloomberg reports on the background of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing as a manhunt continues for 19-year-old foreign national Dzhokar Tsarnaev.

Judicial Watch

Boston Bomber Should Have Been Deported After 2009 Arrest

The slain Boston Marathon bombing suspect should have been deported in 2009, said Chris Farrell with Judicial Watch.  Farrell said 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was in the United States after being offered asylum but should have been deported after being convicted of domestic violence.

"DHS, did nothing," he said. "Makes no connection between his criminal behavior and his status of trying to gain citizenship here."



The Brothers Tsarnaev

A man identified by several sources as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died after an overnight shootout with police. He's the man described Thursday by the FBI as black-capped Suspect No. 1 in the attacks Monday that killed three.

His brother, Dzhokar Tsarnaev, apparently escaped -- leading police to throw a huge dragnet around the region. In photos released by the FBI of the bombing suspects, the younger brother is seen wearing a white cap. The agency called him Suspect No. 2.

-- After more than 12 hours of intense operations, police said Friday afternoon that they were continuing to run down new leads and go door-to-door in Watertown, searching for Dzhokar Tsarnaev, said Col. Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police. Bomb techs plan to conduct a controlled blast later in Cambridge, an indication that police found suspected explosives.

-- Dzhokar Tsarnaev became a U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York and Washington, a federal official told CNN's Mike Ahlers.

-- A Maryland man who said he was the suspects' uncle told reporters the two men had brought shame on their family and all ethnic Chechens with the attacks, which he called an atrocity. "If you're alive, turn yourself in and ask for forgiveness," Ruslan Tsarni urged his nephew.

-- A former teacher at the high school Dzhokar Tsarnaev attended, who lives near Tsarnaev's residence now, described the younger brother as "a wonderful kid" who seemed incapable of such violence.

-- Wednesday, two days after the bombings, Dzhokar Tsarnaev apparently tweeted, "I'm a stress free kind of guy." Early Tuesday, he tweeted, "There are people that know the truth but stay silent & there are people that speak the truth but we don't hear them cuz they're the minority."

-- Tamerlan Tsarnaev was wearing explosives and a triggering device when he died, a source briefed on the investigation told CNN's Deborah Feyerick.



Background Details on the Brothers

According to a source briefed on the investigation, the brothers came from the Russian Caucasus and had moved to Kazakhstan at a young age before coming to the United States several years ago.

A statement from the office of Chechnya's president echoed that: "According to preliminary information, coming from the relevant agencies, the Tsarnaev family moved many years ago out of Chechnya to another Russian region," press secretary Alvi Kamirov told Russia's semi-official Interfax news agency. "After that they lived for some time in Kazakhstan, and from there went to the U.S. where the family members received a residence permit. Therefore the individuals concerned did not live as adults in Chechnya."

Two sources told CNN Dzhokar Tsarnaev came to the U.S. as a tourist with his family in the early 2000s and later asked for asylum. He became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2012. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was not a naturalized citizen, a source said. He came "a few years later" and was lawfully in the United States as a green-card holder.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev had studied at Bunker Hill Community College and wanted to become an engineer, the source said. He then took a year off to train as a boxer.

A posting on a social media site in the elder brother's name included the comments: "I don't have a single American friend.  I don't understand them."

Dzhokar Tsarnaev attended Cambridge Rindge & Latin, a public high school, said Eric Mercado, who graduated a year behind the suspect. Mercado said Tsarnaev had worked at Harvard University as a lifeguard.

"We hung out; we partied; we were good high school friends," Mercado told CNN.

"We're all, like, in shock. We don't really understand. There were no telltale signs of any kind of malicious behavior from Dzhokar. It's all coming as a shock, really."

Mercado said he lived a block away from the suspect and did not know his older brother.

Dzhokar Tsarnaev is currently registered as a student at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, which ordered its campus evacuated on Friday. The school is located 65 miles south of Cambridge, just west of New Bedford.

Larry Aaronson, Dzhokar Tsarnaev's neighbor and a former teacher at the high school Tsarnaev attended, called him a "wonderful kid."

"He was so grateful to be here, he was compassionate, he was caring, he was jovial," Aaronson told CNN.



A Violent Night

The violence began late Thursday with the robbery of a convenience store.

Soon after, in Cambridge, across the Charles River from Boston, Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier was fatally shot while he sat in his car, the Suffolk County District Attorney's Office said in a statement. Police believe the bombing suspects were responsible for the shooting.

The two suspects, according to authorities, then hijacked a vehicle at gunpoint in Cambridge, telling the driver that they are the marathon bombers, a law enforcement source told CNN's Joe Johns.

At some point, apparently at a gas station, the source said, the driver escaped.

Police, who were tracking the vehicle using its built-in GPS system, picked up the chase in Watertown. The pursuit went into a residential neighborhood, with the suspects throwing explosives at police.

A firefight erupted and ultimately one bomber -- later identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev -- got out of the car. Police shot him, and his brother ran over him as he drove away, according to the source.

Richard H. Donohue Jr., 33, a three-year veteran of the transit system police force, was shot and wounded in the incident and taken to a hospital, a transit police spokesman said Friday. The officer's condition was not immediately known.

PHOENIX -- The slain Boston Marathon bombing suspect should have been deported in 2009, said Chris Farrell with Judicial Watch. Farrell said 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev was in the United States after being offered asylum but should have been deported after being convicted of domestic violence.

"The Citizenship and Immigration Services, part of [the Department of Homeland Security], did nothing," he said. "Makes no connection between his criminal behavior and his status of trying to gain citizenship here."

Excuse me but are we supposed to believe the mainstream media cover story on their patsies? Gimmee a break. What is this the Huffington Post or something?

Get a grip. We tell the truth here and nothing else. I don't trust the media any more than you. But I have also retained the ability to be objective and not fall automatically into a knee-jerk response as you have done. Maybe you don't like the truth because it doesn't fit your narrative. The FBI fucked this one up big time and heads should roll. They were aware of the older brother's activities, and then failed to monitor him closely enough.

But let's be clear. These brothers aren't patsies. They are guilty as fuck. Do not excuse what they have done. They are scumbag motherfuckers who destroyed lives forever.

And my thoughts have nothing to do with their religion. As an atheist, I could give a flying fuck what anyone believes. Religion is all Santa Claus anyway, just with more expensive robes.

This is not the behavior of innocent men -- running from police, carjacking, killing an MIT officer, massive gun battles, pipe bombs, etc. An innocent man goes to the police or gets a lawyer. He doesn't load up on guns, explosives and carjack an SUV.

Contrast that with how this young man acted when he was named falsely as a suspect and his picture was splashed on the front pages of newspapers across the country.

He went to the police and press and declared his innocence.

Eldest Boston bomber was thrown out of his mosque for 'raged filled rant' against Martin Luther King three months ago

One of the Boston bombing suspects set off alarm bells among his family a year ago during a trip here to visit relatives, ABC News has learned.

According to a family member, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a devout Muslim, was kicked out of his uncle's house because of his increasingly extremist views on religion.

The FBI was last night hunting a 12-strong terrorist “sleeper cell” linked to the Boston marathon bomb brothers.

The FBI hates the internets. Tries to blame internet "vigilantes" for messing up the search for the brothers. Bull shit.

"Investigators were concerned that if they didn’t assert control over the release of the Tsarnaevs’ photos, their manhunt would become a chaotic free-for-all, with news media cars and helicopters, as well as online vigilante detectives, competing with police in the chase to find the suspects. By stressing that all information had to flow to 911 and official investigators, the FBI hoped to cut off that freelance sleuthing and attend to public safety even as they searched for the brothers."

What utter crap. The public did a better job than the FBI and of course they're embarrassed. An ordinary citizen even found the second brother (within half an hour) when thousands of militarized police, helicopters and infrared sensors had failed.

Agreed. The FBI should be embarrassed and heads should roll over this. They had a clear warning from the Russians on the older brother and they stopped watching the guy. I heard several media pundits make the point this morning on the Sunday political shows, so they are finally coming around. You and I have been questioning the FBI since the first day, suspecting they might have known about the brothers.

Boston bomber: FBI 'dropped the ball' over Tamerlan Tsarnaev


As the agency was accused of "dropping the ball" over the case, NBC News reported that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been seen making six visits to a known Islamic militant in a mosque in the Russian republic of Dagestan.

The visits came during a six month trip that Tamerlan made to the city of Makhachkala to see his family, NBC said. According to a local police official, a case file on Tsarnaev was then handed over to the FBI along with a request for further information. However, the FBI never replied.

The agency has already admitted that it interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 after Russia raised concerns that he was becoming a follower of radical Islam, but found nothing "derogatory" against him and did not pursue the case further.

In a further sign that Tsarnaev's record was in the US security apparatus, the New York Times reported yesterday that a "hold" had been placed on his citizenship request by the Department of Homeland Security after routine background checks discovered the FBI's former interest in him.

The FBI has also not explained why it did not immediately retrieve the Tsarnaev file after the bombs exploded on Monday afternoon – an event which should have triggered routine checks on those suspected of involvement in with Islamist militant groups.

Even when three days later, when the FBI correctly identified the bombers after reviewing hours of the CCTV footage and public smartphone videos of the race, they failed to cross-reference the photograph with a man whose picture they already had on file.

When contacted by The Daily Telegraph to ask why Tamerlan's file had been overlooked in the aftermath of the bombings, the FBI said it would not comment on "operational matters".

CBS television quoted investigators as saying that Tsarnaev suffered two serious wounds and had lost a lot of blood. It said investigators had speculated that one wound in the back of his neck could have been a suicide attempt.

"They say it appears from the wound that he might have stuck a gun in his mouth and fired," said the report, which added that Tsarnaev could understand what those around him were saying.
