“I told the police there were only two Muslims who hung around the group of friends.”
The solution to this case was always right at hand. Unfortunately political correctness kept the police from reaching the obvious conclusion.
A friend said they were stunned that police apparently never investigated the significance of the fact that the trio — Brendan H. Mess, 25, Weissman, 31, and Rafael M. Teken, 37, who was also Jewish — were killed on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks.
That might have led them to take a second look at Tsarnaev, a Chechen Muslim immigrant who investigators now know was already starting down a path to Islamic radicalism.
“I told the police that there were only two Muslims I knew of who hung around the group of friends,” the friend told the paper. “Because of the 9/11 date, the fact that Tamerlan and Brendan’s last girlfriend were Muslim stood out.”
But the police didn't choose to follow up on that until the Muslim terrorists had already bombed the Boston Marathon. Brendan Mess' Muslim ex-girlfriend was apparently Hibatalla Eltilib, a Sudanese, who reportedly also found the bodies, which might expand Tamerlan's motive in the murder.
According to the filing made Monday, Ibragim Todashev told investigators Tamerlan Tsarnaev participated in a triple slaying in Waltham on Sept. 11, 2011.
The filing is prosecutors' attempt to block Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from getting certain information from authorities, including investigative documents associated with the Waltham slayings.
According to prosecutors, the ongoing investigation into the 2011 slayings is reason not to allow Dzhokhar Tsarnaev access to the documents he's seeking.
Dzhokhar should be getting waterboarded at Gitmo, instead of enjoying the support of his fan club of liberal teenage girls and liberal lawyers while tampering with an investigation.
Unfortunately we're on Obama Time now. And terrorists get the velvet glove treatment.
