CNN is saying that the suspect was shot in the neck and is on a respirator, unable to speak, and in serious condition.

Perhaps we should focus on the fact that these guys were identified by photo within 3 days of the bombing and they were dead or captured a few hours after the 4 day mark. I think that is extraordinary.
I agree

for what it is worth, a woman here in florida with a granddaughter attending same college claims he was partying Monday night.

They said on the news that he was sleeping in his dorm, attending class, working out in the gym, and attended a dorm party after the bombing - per the university. At this school you have to use a key card to enter buildings, so they were able to track his movements after the fact.

Here is another weird thing - at first they said that he backed over his brother with the SUV in making his getaway (like it was an accident) but now they chief of police is saying that the police were handcuffing his brother, and the suspect aimed the car directly for them. The police jumped aside, and he ran over his brother and drug him 20 yards with the SUV. That is hard to understand.

On the local news this morning they said that they think he put a gun in his mouth to kill himself and instead of going into his brain, he got his tongue and neck. I can't imagine how that could have happened but in any case, he is not able to speak.

Have heard of botched suicides attempts before if this is what happened. We can't make sense of this as we are not brainwashed :shrug:

I haven't seen all this stuff but I had heard/read that his brother had an IED device on his body. Perhaps it was a last ditch attempt to detonate it? Horrible to think about but it sprang to my mind.

Greg and I were saying it's like some sort of weird action movie - car chase, gunfire, terrorists. It's almost surreal.

LA Times story this morning is quoting sources that despite the neck injury he was swearing profusely in the ambulance.

These young men didn't act alone. It will come out this week that they acted with Al Qaeda terrorist cells.

Chechen rebels are blaming Russia and say they have no ties to the bombing.

The White House deported Abdul Rahman Ali Al-Harbi immediately after the bombings. Why wasn't he questioned ? He was in the area of the bombings and had links to Al Quida.

This entire dealio is starting to look like Eric Holders " Fast and Furious" where we sold guns to Mexican drug cartels. I think its a false flag event because of all the things that happened.

It appears that the LA Times is the source of this story. The only other references that say he was swearing all source LA Times. Wonder where they got that info since it appears to be erroneous.

Life pretty much went on as normal in Newton Highlands, about six miles from the Watertown area affected. Went to McDonalds on Friday, it was packed. So were Marshalls and the rest of the stores that were open. It was good to know where the trouble was so you could avoid it. The fear I had was while most of Newton's cops were in Watertown local crime sprees would break out. Fortunately that didn't happen. But huge areas were left pretty much without cops.

What luck for them to have pulled into a gas station that was 'cash only'.

Exclusive: Imam of Mosque Visited by Bombing Suspect Speaks to TIME - by Simon Shuster/ Makhachkala, Russia/ World/ Time.com

"The old imam cringes at the sound of that name—Tamerlan Tsarnaev—furrowing his brow into a bed of creases as he sighs and looks away. There is about half an hour left until the next call to Friday prayers, and he is seated in the third-floor office of his mosque in the city of Makhachkala in southern Russia. At last he indulges the question: “None of our men, not a single person, has ever known him or ever seen him..."

Boston terrorist attack.

The title of this thread is Boston Marathon explosions. That's like saying World Trade Center airplane crash's.

The thread was started only minutes after the explosions when none of us had any idea what was going on, and its title was phrased as a question. It's been edited at least once already, pretty sure we all understand the situation now without further editing necessary.

What happened to that recent obnoxious, distasteful and unsubstantiated post ?
