The mother of the Tsarnaev brothers said the entire incident is a set up and they are innocent.
The FBI talked to her about Tamerlan’s Internet behavior, she claimed, and they told her that he was a “serious leader.” They were “counseling every step of him” and they told her “he was an excellent boy.”
Her claim is that they were afraid of him because of the information he was providing.
The father and aunt of the brothers Tsarnaev also insisted it was a set up.

That settles it. It was all a law enforcement set up!
Suspect #1, Tamerlin Tsarnaev, was interviewed by the FBI who shared that information with a foreign government according to the AP, Reuters, and the telegraph UK. The government in question is likely Russia which has been cooperating in researching the brothers. Russia has warned us of the dangers of the radicalized Chechens. They were responsible for the horrendous attack on school children in Moscow.
In 2009, Tamerlan was arrested for assaulting his girlfriend. That would have been the time to deport him but we are notorious for giving second chances.
Tamerlan apparently liked videos by a radical Australian Muslim cleric – Sheik Feiz Mohammad – who preaches that rape victims have only themselves to blame.
One Feiz video Tamerlan posted on his channel encourages children to become martyrs for Islam.
In his 2007 documentary, Feiz said that children should be “soldiers defending Islam” and “there is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a mujahid. Put in their soft, tender hearts the zeal of jihad and a love of martyrdom.”
Notice Feiz hasn’t killed himself for the cause. He just wants children to do it.
Gary Bernstein, former CIA agent and current counterterrorism expert, was on Larry Kudlow’s radio show Saturday. He said that the Chechens get hold of these young people, teach them how to make the bombs, orchestrate the terror attack, and then they cut them loose.

The Daily Mail has a good summary about the brothers.
Tamerlan was married to a RI girl, Katherine Russell who converted to Islam for him. They have a three-year old daughter Zahara. It is not known how much she was aware of his activities. They spent every weekend together.
After destroying the lives of so many on Monday, Dzhokhar slept in his dorm room that night. He tweeted rap lyrics after the attack and before one party on Wednesday, he tweeted, “I’m a stress-free kind of guy.”
A little disassociation perhaps?
Over the last few years, Dzhokhar’s Facebook page went from career interests to anti-government and Islamic sentiments. He did appear to like Barack Obama however.
Dzhokhar was a 9/11 Truther. Judging from his parents’ conspiratorial mindset, it’s not hard to understand why Dzhokhar had these views.
Hours after the attack, he tweeted “Ain’t no love in the heart of the city, stay safe people.” [NY Post]
