Boston Bombers ID’d As Two Muslim Brothers From Chechnya, One Wearing Suicide Vest Killed In Confrontation With Police


The two Boston bombers responsible for killing 3 and wounding 264 have been identified as two brothers from the region of Chechnya in southern Russia, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency for the past two decades. Both brothers identify themselves as Muslim. The oldest brother (black cap) has been killed after a confrontation with police and may have been wearing a suicide vest (a tell-tale trait often employed by Islamists). The youngest brother (white cap) is still on the run …

Update: Second brother has been captured alive

By Jerry Markon, Sari Horwitz and Clarence Williams, The Washington Post – “They blasted across the nation’s airwaves as the mystery men on the run from the FBI in the Boston Marathon bombings, both carrying backpacks, one wearing a backward white baseball hat and the other clad in dark glasses and a white T-shirt.

On Friday, after a chaotic night in which one of the men was killed and the other became the target of a massive manhunt, information was slowly emerging about the two men — who are brothers and the prime suspects in the attacks that killed three people and injured more than 170.

Law enforcement officials identified the suspect still on the loose as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass. His brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, was identified as the man killed during an encounter with police after an armed carjacking of a Mercedes SUV in Cambridge. Tsarnaev was believed to be in his mid-20s.

The brothers’ alleged motive in Monday’s bombings remains unclear, but they appear to be originally from the southern Russian republic of Chechnya, and two law enforcement officials said there is a “Chechen connection” to the bombings. Chechnya has been racked by years of war between local separatists and Russian forces and extensive organized crime since the Soviet Union dissolved in 1991. The extent of the possible connection remained unclear…

The Chechen conflict dates to the early 1990s. In the summer of 1999, fighters in the predominantly Muslim republic rose up in an attempt to throw off Russian domination. Vladimir Putin, then the Russian prime minister, responded quickly, firmly and brutally to put down the rebellion.” Read more.

Chaos: Police Officer Killed, Car Chase Ensues, Explosives Thrown At Police – “About five hours after the FBI released the pictures of the bombing suspects, a police officer was shot and killed on the campus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Middlesex County District Attorney said in a statement. A short time later, police received reports of a carjacking by two men who kept their victim inside the car for about half an hour, the statement said. Police pursued that car to Watertown, where explosives were thrown from the car at police and gunfire was exchanged, the statement said. ‘During the exchange of the gunfire, we believe that one of the suspects was struck and ultimately taken into custody. A second suspect was able to flee from that car and there is an active search going on at this point in time,’ Colonel Timothy Alben, superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police, told a news conference.” Read more.

Russia’s Caucasus: Breeding Ground For Islamic Terror, Links To Al-Qaida – “Militants from Chechnya and other restive regions in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus have targeted Moscow and other areas with bombings and hostage-takings, but the allegations of involvement in the Boston Marathon explosions would mark the first time they had conducted a terror attack in the West. The conflict in Chechnya began in 1994 as a separatist war, but quickly morphed into an Islamic insurgency whose adepts vow to carve out an independent Islamic state in the Caucasus… The allegations of the Caucasus men’s role in the Boston’s explosions would reinforce long-held claims by Russian officials that insurgents in the Caucasus have been linked to al-Qaida.” Read more.

    It is interesting. The bombers are UNSUICIDAL. VERY very strange. They stayed back in Boston for four days awaiting some kind of deal, they never fled Boston and they stayed alive. That’s unorthodox and stooopid unless the bombers have been deceived by their clients alas leaders. Those SWAT goose chase stunt is based on failing Photoshop that Fostered to pop match. Obama said to Boston Interfaithers “We will find you,” Welcome Lee Harvey Oswald to Boston. Lyndon Baines Johnson.

      The oldest brother, killed by police, apparently wore a suicide vest of some sort. Yes, he was very “unsuicidal”. And not fleeing Boston while having additional explosives suggests that they were planning more attacks.

      This entire episode is ridiculous. But what a performance they gave. The Obama/ Soros gang, has many members who are willing to sell their souls for the promise of power. Let them live in the Hell that they are so damn anxious to bring about. i don’t envy them at all.

      There may certainly be more to it, but yes these men definitely carried it out. Their actions over the past 24 hours alone speak louder than words.
