The father of the Tsarnaev Brothers spoke with reporters from Russia. He said “my child is a true angel.” He’s “an intelligent boy.” The father is also under the delusion that his sons were framed and it’s an inside job.
“I learned about the incident from TV. My opinion is: the special services have framed my children, because they are practicing Muslims. Why did they kill Tamerlan? He was supposed to be caught alive. The younger is on the run now. He was a sophomore at a medical school in the U.S. We expected him to come home for vacation. Now I don’t know what’s going to happen. Tell you once again: I believe special services have framed my children.”
The father also warned, “If they killed him, then all hell would break loose. If they kill my second child, I will know that it is an inside job, a hit job. The police are to blame,” the father told ABC News. “Someone, some organization is out to get them.”
The brothers’ aunt, Maret Tsarnaev said, “I am suspicious that the picture was staged. They could not have done this. Where is the evidence?” she said.
Another uncle said they called to ask for forgiveness. “He said, ‘I love you and forgive me,’” said the uncle, Alvi Tsarnaev, who lives in Montgomery Village, Md. The uncle and Tamerlane, who shares a name with an ancient and vicious warlord, talked about their Muslim faith. The uncle said he doesn’t know how he can forgive him for killing innocents.
Another uncle, Rusian, has not seen the family in years, but angrily condemned the boys and demanded his nephew turn himself in and beg forgiveness.
A couple loons in this family and a couple who said the right things.
Speaking of loons, where was the media on this? They were blaming right-wingers and the Tea Party.
HuffPo mocked Conservatives for suggesting an Islamic terrorist might have been involved. We even heard they were Christians. The army manual has mainstream Catholics, Mormons, and Evangelicals listed as terrorists thanks to the Department of Defense, so of course it had to be one of those.
As fate would have it, the “angel” and his brother were radicalized Islamic terrorists. They made it obvious on Facebook and on YouTube.
I am certain the media, including the demented Chris Matthews, will issue apologies shortly. The premiere writer at Slate who hoped it would be a white guy, got his wish. Their skin is fairly white.
Meanwhile, would someone explain to me why politics mattered when these precious people died and others were maimed? How sick are we?
