Was The Federal Government Involved in Boston Bombing?

The Boston Marathon bombing occurred on April 15, 2013. That day, two bombs exploded near the historic event’s finish line, killing three people and injuring more than 200 others.  By the time the FBI took over the investigation, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been identified as prime suspects, despite significant questions about inconsistencies in official accounts of what had happened.  Nearly a year later, with most of the people that could shed light on the event killed (Tamerlan Tsarnaev and later, his friend, Ibragim Todashev), deported (Todashev’s girlfriend) or silenced, Russ Baker reports that the FBI might have been involved with the Tsarnaev family prior to the incident.

On January 30, 2014, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced that the government will seek the death penalty in its case against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Is it a coincidence, Baker asks, that the federal government has put the one person who might be able to reveal the truth about this tragedy on death row? “The bottom line,” Baker writes, “is that the official story put out through leaks to friendly media during the early hours and days after the bombing has become the unquestioned account, with no apparent serious and open-minded investigation having followed, as best as we can tell.”

    This is something we will never know. The sophistication of the United States intellegent agencies has perfected the use of Patsy’s and false flag operation to the point that what is caught first by the main street media is what becomes the reality. regaurdless of it being truth or fiction or somewhere in between. Once the main street media has made a determination of the gult or inocence of a individual, regaurdless of the crime, that individual is , for lack of a better word , screwed. No additional avenues of investigation are pursued. I would only ask the question of how can we be certian of the guilt or innocence of an individual when the purported crime is solved in less than 24 hours. That is especially true for high profile case’s like the Boston Thing. To determine the truth all areas of suspicion should be regaurded as possible and looked into . The investigtion should not end when a ” suspect” is identified as the most likely person responsible. Curcimstances are responcable for many individuals incarceration, as they are the easiest to close a case and put the public at ease. What one must ask themselves is what else was going on at the same time as the bombing that we took no , or very slight interest in but had and have had hughe implications?? So what did we overlook on that day??? What else was going on that could have taken the American publics interest into a realm they where not wanted in???
