If you say so lady…
Was Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev brainwashed by a radical Muslim he met at a Boston-area mosque?
Not according to his mother.
According to the Associated Press, Tamerlan appeared to take the first steps toward terrorism after falling under the spell of a mysterious red-bearded Armenian known only as Misha.
“He was just a friend,” Zubeidat Tsarnaeva told ABC News from south Russia, where she has been talking with the FBI.
She called the report “nonsense,” saying that Tamerlan and Misha’s friendship was brief because Misha moved away after shortly the pair became tight in 2008 and 2009.
Appearing publicly for the first time outside her home in Makhachkala, Dagestan, Zubeidat said she believed her sons were set up.
“They were being killed just because they were Muslim, nothing else,” she told CNN.
“Only Allah knows,” if her surviving son, Dzhokhar, will get a fair trial, she said.
Uh, no, your sons were killed because they killed several innocent people and injured almost 200 more. Not to mention the cop they killed and shot during their bomb-throwing police chase. We don’t see any anti-Allah agenda anywhere in there.
You need more people, have a seat.
