Russia Had Wiretap On Boston Bomb Suspect


tamerlan-and-dzhokhar-tsarnaevUS officials say Russian authorities secretly recorded a conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother. Officials say a second call was recorded between the suspects’ mother and a man under FBI investigation living in southern Russia, according to an AP report.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity, reported the AP, because they were not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing case. They say the Russians shared this intelligence with the US in the past few days.

  1. Putin knew from the beginning about this. Anyone else wonder why his original statement before we knew anything was that he was willing to fully help with the investigation. I’m not saying he supported it, but knew who it was. I also believe he is hinting to the US that if they want to oppose Al-Assad, and the other leaders that have been overthrown, this is the risk-cuz at least they have some control over the fringe groups. That’s why Putin supports Syria.
