Motives From Boston Bombings Revealed By Dzhokhar Tsarnaev

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The surviving Boston Marathon bombings suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told interrogators that US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan spurred him and his brother to carry out last week’s deadly assault, US officials told media.

According to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is in fair condition. The FBI is releasing this information at the request of the hospital.

US officials believe Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev acted on their own when targeting the Boston Marathon and were not linked with any terror cell, AP reports quoting its own sources.

The hospitalized 19-year-old suspect, who has been upgraded to fair condition, specifically provided the US invasion of Iraq, which officially ended in December 2011, and the ongoing US-led mission in Afghanistan as inspiring the brothers to carry out the attack, the Washington Post reports.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev further took responsibility for his role in planting explosives near the marathon finish line last week. Despite his role in the assault, he had previously said his brother was the primary driver behind the terror plot.

The elder Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, died on Friday after a fierce gun battle with police.

However, the Boston Globe reported on Tuesday that Tsarnaev offered up his admission of guilt on Sunday, when he had not yet been read his Miranda rights.

While attorney’s for the suspect are likely to challenge the legal admissibility of his statements, including claims that he and his brother acted alone, a senior police officials said authorities already believe their case is watertight based on eyewitness testimony from the man who the brothers abducted late Thursday night.

“We just killed a cop. We blew up the marathon. And now we’re going to New York. Don’t [expletive] with us,” the witness recounts one of the suspects as telling him when the carjacking first commenced.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death. He is accused of setting off pressure-cooker bombs that left 3 killed and wounded 264 during the Boston Marathon on April 15.

He is also due to be charged separately with the killing of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer shot during the manhunt on Thursday.

While there is no excuse for attacks that purposefully target civilians, the fact that the suspects cite US foreign policy as a primary motivating factor in the bombings should come as a surprise to no one, John Glaser, an editor at, told RT.

“Every attack that wasn’t an FBI-hatched sting operation since 9/11 has had that component. All of these terrorists that want to attack the United States and commit heinous violence on us have in their mind some motivation of US foreign policy; US aggression in the Middle East.”

The next step in the investigation is expected to be an indictment, during which new charges could be added.

A possible hearing was set for May 30, with two death penalty lawyers appointed to represent Tsarnaev, AP reported.

Meanwhile, police are continuing to look into the suspects’ online and telephone communications to prove the younger Tsarnaev’s statement.

Currently, about 50 people remain in hospital, with three of them in critical condition. At least 14 of the wounded lost all or part of a limb, while three others lost more than one limb.

CCTV cameras captured Dzhokhar manipulating his cellphone and lifting it to his ear just moments before the two blasts, according to the FBI.

With the legal process against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev commencing, there are still those who believe he is innocent. A group on Facebook in his support has attracted about 11,000 supporters over the last week.

      What, after they killed his brother and beat the crap out of him? What is this, looks like main stream media bs. THESE are the facts – /conspiracy-theories/2013/04/why-is-supposedly-dead-sandy-hook-principle-seen-at-boston-bombing-event-2450404.html

      Don’t get caught up in the bs. WHO owns the federal reserve and big banks, zionists, who’s behind the fake wars/false flags, zionists, 911, zionists, the liar media And even fake alternative media – zionists and their enablers in congress/senate/states/corporations/military/monsatan -

      • ThenAgain

        And what is this running RT controlled ops fake media here. They have their own site, don’t need to run their crap here. They’re ALL in on the bs game.

      i love RT news. watch it any chance i get. no illuminate symbolism there only good reporting on things msm would never tell you. it’s free and digital on your computer. not many commercials. give it a try and decide for yourself. i got rid of cable lately. saving a bunch. so tired of msm. very happy with RT.

      After the bombing Djokar went to classes, the gym, party…he smoked dope and chased ass. He was fond of his car. Does he strike you as a religious nut?

      • wrebi

        Completely agree.

    • jolo

      He’s been given the ‘treatment’ Derren Brown style, the evidence against them is poor and the fact that that the fbi had been tracking these boys for two years, says it all, wake up everyone!

      the truth will out.

    • wrebi

      He’s confessing? BS, he has either been coerced into it or will be. Why would he start confessing before being charged? I just don’t buy it.

      I am sure they threatened to eliminate his whole family and torture him and they will continue to use him as an operative…

    • VirusGuard

      I find it funny how some members of the public take anything that the MSM says as gods truth and attack anyone that points out things like Black-Water agents where seen all over the place.

      Watch RT like Anonymous says to see that the official government line has more than a few wholes in it and try to keep as many freedoms as you can because all are under attack by the elite and most of the press are helping them towards this end.

    • caribbean critic

      And you still print this FBi crap

    • cforce

      Whoever believes all this can go watch Zero Dark Thirty again. Crap.

    • sindarella

      Not worth taking on board any of this, since it’s impossible to have trust in any public news source..
      Aside, just look at broader picture of events such as these, and speculate on agenda.
      1) a distraction..
      2) a practice run for martial law, and how easy to implement.

      Most likely both. Just mark it off as another signpost along the way…

    • Hawbs

      i watched RT news today. came in clear as day except for a talk about the boston bombing. it kept buffering. odd. anyway, russia arrested 140 people in a crack-down on religious extremism there. it was also brought up that russia warned the US a year back about these brothers, but US didn’t believe russia and info was tossed away. russia claims they didn’t listen because US has bad feelings about russia. more oddness. good ole russia says we should partner with them to fight religious extremism. what do you think, guys? they have terrorism there too, but we usually only hear the US news.
