Boston Bombers May Have Financed Terror Spree with Food Stamps


Liberals have repeatedly blocked efforts to prevent food stamp fraud. The Tsarnaev clan, like so many Muslim immigrants, were abusing the system in a big way and may have even financed their terror spree using EBT transfers.

A mountain of new welfare records shows numerous EBT card cash withdrawals made by the Tsarnaev family, but so far there is no information about how terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev and others may have spent the money.

The EBT receipts were handed over by the state to the House Post Audit and Oversight Committee as part of its probe into the Russian family’s $100,000-plus taxpayer-financed life in the Bay State. The committee met yesterday behind closed doors to review Medicaid and welfare awards.

The purchases show specific stores, but not the items bought. But further details could be available to investigators.

The committee’s request for financial aid records from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth — where marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, was a sophomore flunking some classes and owing a reported $20,000 — was rejected, the Herald learned. Federal officials have forbidden the school from releasing any records publicly.

Rafi Ron, a former top Israeli security official and past consultant to Logan International Airport, said the welfare cash could have been enough money to help the Tsarnaev brothers build their pressure-cooker bombs that killed three and injured more than 260 at the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15.

It is still unclear from the records whether any welfare cash was used to finance slain bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s journey to Dagestan from January to July 2012.

Lenin famously said that the capitalists will sell us the rope with which we will hang them. But that was when America was still capitalist. Today welfare will give them the rope for free and run an ad campaign to inform them that they can get the rope for free while providing them with an interpreter so that the rope giveaway will be culturally sensitive.

    Whether or not the food stamps allowed them to directly buy the items for jihad (most likely did), the free cash was still a contributory factor. For if not for the gov't assistance, it would have been impossible to live in the US for so many yrs.

    However, rest assured, once they became jihadists there were many fonts of cash accessed for their plans, so it would have gone forward regardless –

    Their jihad was Saudi and Iranian linked and this will come out, sooner or later.

    The British government has the fatuous policy of handing taxpayer funds to mosques (which, after all, teach the roots of the ideology, the “radical” essential elements) to run “deradicalisation” programmes, without any idea what these are. One such mosque is where one of the London 7/7 bombers attended. Maybe the funds came in useful for buying explosives.

    If killing your own citizens is a measure of success, Lenin was hard to beat, but Stalin managed to eclipse him in the democide catgory.

    Yes, we will hang ourselves by TOLERATING policies inspired by Lenin, but so will those who openly follow his idiocy.

      I wonder if like under stalin and lenin that Stinky (BO) will purge his staunchest supporters first? THAT would be fun to watch!!

  • slider 96

    And Adina , you say "most likely did " ? Hmmm 2 pressure cookers @ $60 / Fireworks [ for the gunpowder ]@ $50 maybe / couple of jars of Vaseline @ $5 / assorted nails& ballbearings $ 20 /

    Yes , this bombing would not have been possible without FOODSTAMP FINANCING !

      Here's the thing muslim. The terrorists were muslim. They got their marching orders from the gutter cult of islam, the pedophile mohamat, and the terror guide (that momo the pig faced dog shat into the sands of Arabia) the koran. President Stinky (BO) Benghazi assisted in the funding, and probably provided some limited logistics support, and running of interference.

      You forgot about the guns they shot at the cops with; $500–$800 apiece, easy. And ammo, $25 a box. And all the gun control laws in Massachusetts couldn't stop Tamerlane and the Joker, could they?

  • Johnconrad

    Clearly, the solution is to take guns away from the law-abiding

    Why is the federal government protecting the records of an enemy combatant? Whose side is our government on?

      Of all the comments I read about this Food Stamp crap, yours is much more thought provoking. Thanks for the direct, simple, and poignant comment. Big thumbs up.
