The media scrubbing of the motive in the jihadi attack in Boston is breathtaking. Mothers, babies, families blown to bits -- 200 victims. When did the enemedia lose their souls? When did precious human life become an inconvenient consequence to their narrative?
I expect many in the enemedia will rationalize Tamerlan's Islamic hatred for the US.
Relatives grew alarmed one year ago about the “increasingly extremist” Muslim views of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects, ABC News reported.
Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the suspect killed Thursday night after a shootout with police, spent six months in Russia beginning in January 2012. During that time, he was actually kicked out of his uncle’s house because of his extremist views, one family member in Russia said.
One aunt, Maret Tsarnaeva, told reporters Friday that Tamerlan Tsarnaev had not been a “devout” Muslim until about two years ago, when he began praying five times a day.
Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, told ABC News it was the six months Tsarnaev spent in Russia that was a significant point for his radicalization.
“When he came back he starting posting more radical jihadist YouTube videos and started becoming more of a fundamentalist Muslim,” McCaul (R-Texas) said. “My concern is that he may have gone over there to visit his father and he received training and then became radicalized and then came back. Something happened in that period of time. He was not like that before.”
He also posted a playlist on YouTube that included a song called, “I will dedicate my life to Jihad.’’
