What some news sources are saying are that they are from an area of Chechnya that grooms terrorists, and an FBI profiler studied their social media info and said the brothers did not "like or understand" America and Americans. Seems they did have friends in their circle, but those friends were as blindsided as we are they did what they did. That to me sounds like a covert domestic terror cell.............

Huh? Combined with all we know about them, it doesn't sound like a "covert domestic terror cell" at all. <shrug>

I'm glad that that's not being reported that way by any media, though. Thanks for the clarification.

Well, the older one was recently in Russia for > 6 months.

Shouldn't being out for over 6 months be a problem?

Boston Bombing Suspect Traveled to Russia Through NYC Last Year | NBC New York

Quote:
Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev flew in and out of John F. Kennedy Airport last year and was out of the country for six months, and investigators said they want to know if he received any terror training while he was overseas, NBC 4 New York has learned.

Travel records obtained by NBC 4 New York show Tsarnaev left New York on Jan. 12, 2012 for Sheremetyevo, Russia. He stayed overseas and returned to JFK on July 17.

No, the media was too busy the last 3 days after the bombing painting the terrorists as extreme right wing white Americans, like Timonthy McVeigh...way too busy to verify facts and do actual reporting...........

I missed the connection between the photos and video that was released yesterday, and the identification of the suspects, their address, etc.

Did some human identify the pictures and call, or was this a photo recognition match in some official database?

The suspects were found because they committed a robbery and shot a campus police officer, not because anyone recognized them.

The latest profiling I've heard is the older brother was very much still an old country (Chechnya), while the the younger brother appears to have been reasonably well assimilated. It wouldn't be the first time that an older brother convinced his younger brother to do something stupid and evil.

In addition, to all the other tragedies associated with event, I am going to really hate hearing the "I told you so" from the 'KGB' Putin. You just know that Putin is going to enjoy reminding the US, that they have told us for a decade that Islamist fighting in Chechnya weren't freedom fighters but terrorists.

Well, to be fair, I wonder to what extend Putin's people are to blame for driving so many Chechnyans to at least consider becoming terrorists. It doesn't excuse what the brothers did, but Putin shouldn't be so bold without getting stained with some blame himself.

The 7-11 video camera got a picture of them. Were they identified as the marathon bombers right away? Or were they being chased for the robbery before anyone knew who they were?
