Boston Terror Narrative Starts Falling Apart

George Washington's picture


We have no idea whether or not the Chechen brothers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were the Boston terrorists.

But several parts of the official narrative are already falling apart.

Initially, the claim that they robbed a 7-11 is totally false. USA Today reported on April 19th:

There was a 7-Eleven robbery in Cambridge last night, but it had nothing to do with the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.


Margaret Chabris, the director of corporate communication at 7- Eleven, says the surveillance video of the crime was not taken at a 7-Eleven and that the suspect that did rob the 7-Eleven does not look like Tamerlan or Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.


"The suspect in the photos for that particular 7-Eleven robbery looks nothing like the suspects," Chabris says. "The police or someone made a mistake. Someone was confused."




At an earlier press conference morning, when [State Police Superintendent Timothy Alban] described the manhunt and standoff that resulted in the death of an MIT police officer, he also said that the two brothers robbed a 7-Eleven.

Moreover, the FBI initially denied ever having spoken with either of the brothers.  But CBS news notes:

The FBI admitted Friday they interviewed the now-deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev two years ago and failed to find any incriminating information about him.

Other oddities include the following:

Again, they might be guilty.  But as Glenn Greenwald notes:

The overarching principle here should be that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is entitled to a presumption of innocence until he is actually proven guilty. As so many cases have proven - from accused (but exonerated) anthrax attacker Stephen Hatfill to accused (but exonerated) Atlanta Olympic bomber Richard Jewell to dozens if not hundreds of Guantanamo detainees accused of being the "worst of the worst" but who were guilty of nothing - people who appear to be guilty based on government accusations and trials-by-media are often completely innocent. Media-presented evidence is no substitute for due process and an adversarial trial.

Indeed, the FBI said it was sure that Bruce Ivins was the anthrax killer (after falsely accusing 2 other people of being the culprits).

However, the National Academy of Science found that the FBI failed to prove its case.

Note: Media said that the door-to-door searches conducted in Watertown were voluntary.  However - whether or not you agree with the need to do so - the searches were not always exactly voluntary.

Just as I predicted Dzhohkar has confessed. So, they'll kill him and the many Americans will cheer that on as they do when they blow up children in the Middle East.

The FBI were with this kid the whole time since he entered the hospital, even telling the hospital what they can update the public on about the condition of the suspect.

(HOLDER, attorney general, overseas the FBI....That should tell ya something).

Glen Beck provided a massive diversion, and aided the Government's "case" against the brothers.

Dzhohkar gets Government Public Defenders, who are really working for the STate.

They get away again!

Wherever I may wander on the Web or in the real world, I see one prevailing first reaction to any horriffic event.

People start looking for 'Where the US Government involvment connection is' and it is usually found out, It might be the prevelence of Psych med's amongst "School shooters" or Funky gun runnings to Mexican drug cartels or the CIA ships in another 727 full of Coke or some immigrant Moslem knuckle heads had FBI watchers/Minders or whatever it is this week.

But what it all boils down to is an utter loss of trust in the Government and all confidence in them is gone, they appear to be a warped subculture or a bizarre cult with agendas far beyond the realm of common sense or societal need, what on Earth are they doing?                                           Where do these people come from? are they all nuts?When was the last time they did something that made you think..."Yeah,Right on! good move Elected reprasentative guy!"            I can not remember that happening and believe that the utter distrust does not bode well for any of us. What the hell are they up to and what are they thinking? it has me baffled.

Interesting if true and would explain the 212, 3B terrorist designation. That Saudi kid is the one that needs to be followed up on.

Look at the pictures and decide for yourself


HAMZA IS KNOWN TO BE “THE SPITTING IMAGE OF HIS FATHER, OSAMA BIN LADEN.” “SAUDI STUDENT” WAS TACKLED FLEEING BOSTON MARATHON, THEN HOSPITALIZED WITH “SEVERE HAND BURNS AND SHRAPNEL IN BACKSIDE OF LEG.”   Hamza is the son of Khairiah Sabar of Saudi Arabia, one of Bin Laden’s three wives who were living in the Abbottabad compound.[11] Interrogation of the surviving wives of Osama Bin Laden by Pakistani intelligence after the raid on the Abbottabad revealed Hamza was the only person missing. He was not among those killed or injured. The raid conducted by the SEAL team was thorough: infrared technology, as well as ground troops, remained confident nobody inside the compound had escaped. There were no hidden exit tunnels from the compound.[12][13] In a letter confiscated in the raid, written by bin Laden and addressed to his “Chief of Staff” Atiyah Abd al-Rahman, bin Laden mentions his desire that Hamza would be educated in Qatar as a religious scholar so that he could “refute the wrong and the suspicions raised around Jihad.”[14] The same letter revealed that Hamza did not escape the raid because he was not even present in Abbottabad.[15][16] Letters from the compound also confirmed that Osama was grooming Hamza to be his heir apparent following the death of Hamza’s older brother Saad in a 2009 US drone strike.[17][18] The congressional source told TheBlaze it was unclear as to why representatives from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) would be unaware of this information. Earlier on Thursday, an official with ICE said it was “categorically false” that Alharbi had ever been considered for deportation.   The congressional source, however, said the information sent to Congress showed that a file was created on “Abdul Rahman Ali Al Harbi” at 4 p.m. on Tuesday by an official with the National Targeting Center, a counterterrorism sub-agency of U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Department of Homeland Security. The file stated that the individual is “linked to the Boston bombing” and was to be processed for revocation of his visa based on national security grounds, the congressional source revealed.   This blows me away.  He certaintly looks like Hamza bin laden.  Hamza is the son of Khairiah Sabar of Saudi Arabia, one of Bin Laden’s three wives who were living in the Abbottabad compound. Interrogation of the surviving wives of Osama Bin Laden by Pakistani intelligence after the raid on the Abbottabad revealed Hamza was the only person missing. He was not among those killed or injured.  If true, this is huge!!!

"... anthrax attacker Stephen Hatfill to accused (but exonerated) ..."

Or, how about that a single federal judge, with no jury, ruled Hatfill innocent, and awarded (as in payoff) Hatfill $5.8 million of the taxpayers' money.

Everything pointed to Hatfill --- nothing pointed to Dr. Ivens, other than the typical FBI clumsy setup!

Here's someone living in Watertown who had eyewitness access to the shootout/bomb explosion early Friday morning.

Lots of shots around their house, through their walls, cars, etc.

Brother Tamerlan should have been a key suspect in the September 12, 2011 murder of three pot dealers who he knew.  The Boston police department ignored him, almost certainly on orders from the government who identified Tamerlan as an asset.  The black backpack situation at the finish line was like a three card monte game, with guys with Craft caps all wearing black backpacks until just before the explosion.  One is seen leaving the scene suddenly minus his backpack a minute before the blast.  Making cellphone triggered bombs is not a job for amateurs.  Imagine Tamerlan's surprise after the explosion when his handler told Tamerlan he was on his own, that there was no plane waiting for him, no exit from Boston.  The only miscalculation on the part of the government masterminds were all those digital photos taken of the guys backing up Tamerlan, who were to make sure the bombs were planted.  Unlike at the Pentagon on 9/11, the government was unable to seize all the video and photos of the Boston attack.

Don't attribute to conspiracy that which can be more easily ascribed to shitty reporting. This was the worst reported event I can ever think of. Its not the 'story' thats falling apart, its the willingness of the 'get it on air now!' media to ignore all pretense of checkng sources or the veracity of the info they spew. CNN should have their license revoked.

"According to the head cross country coach at the University of Mobile - a marathon runner who has run in numerous big races -  bomb-sniffing dogs and a bomb squad inspected the runners ... and authorities repeatedly announced over the loudspeaker that they were conducting drills.  This occurred at the start of the Boston marathon. He believes that authorities must have had credible evidence of a bomb threat"

As I said in a previous post, I heard ONE mention of an "anonymous tip" received about a possible bombing of the marathon in one mainstream media report to explain the dog searches, then nothing more.  It would be very interesting to investigate where this "anonymous tip" came from, don't you think, especially for the authorities?  You'd think the FBI and other agencies would be very interested to ask, "How did you know this and, if you did, why didn't you know the specific details?"

The current suspects are total decoys, likely Monarch subjects who may even think they did it and perhaps went through the motions; stories abound of FBI busting young guys who think they have delivered a bomb to detonate - in so-called FBI "sting" operations....  the actual suspects have already been found on footage and appear very much to be blackop special forces kinda guys....

This whole thing stinks to falseflag high heaven.

There is also a rumor that the younger brother went itno 7-11 to get snacks for their final run, and *it* got held up.....which is the reason why they hurried into Watertown. 

It's something out of "Boogie Nights" and the scene with Don Cheadle.

Meanwhile while you're all rubbernecking Lee Harvey & Dzhack Ruby, somehow the more important alleged Sarin & Ricin attacks against Congress & the President  are whitewashed. I get 3: Boston marathon, Sarin, no, wait, Ricin from Kentucky, no, wait, Mississippi, and the explosion in Texas.

The Federal Reserve Charter expires on December 31, 2013 at 11:59 P.M.


After that, the Illusion and deception can continue.  It must be voted on by Congress.  Will they re cerifiy the Charter?

Well, they passed it the first time before a Christmas Holiday.

Will this be a TBTF Bank Holiday or Fasle Flag Re Certification Federal Reserve Charter to continue the Illusion?


“The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it's profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.”

Same shit - different day.  Patsies set up to take the wrap, usually in their teens or twenties and with some sort of intelligence connection.  Many who were not killed before trial had total amnesia of the incident reminisent of MK Ultra multipersonality dissociated Monarchs.  Simultaneous drills taking place with intelligence type thugs pretending to deal will exactly the same "threat."  Story full of holes and bullshit that even a 10 year old could see through.  Problem; reaction; solution.  By the way, I conducted a scientific test.  I poured kerosine (jet fuel) all over my steel barbarque grill and set it on fire.  Much to my amasement, it didn't collapse into a heap of molten metal.  It's really amazing what most people will believe if the boob tube says it often enough.

To me the two bombs, the poison letters and the explosion near Waco, all in one week, is a sign that the universe is reminding us of the still festering wounds to our personal and national psyche that were incurred years ago by 911 the anthrax letters and Waco. Its time for everyone to heal those wounds by questioning what happened back then on both an individual and collective level, and without being marginalized for doing so. Its  time to end the fear that has been generated by not knowing the truth of what happened and why it happened. Its time to demand answers.

That the terrorists didn't rob the 7-11 was already known Friday morning:

In case you're wondering, things like this are chaotic, and it always take time to sort things out. Sometimes, people (even journalists!) hear things on police scanners and report them as fact, before anyone has had time to confirm them.

But sometimes things lingering in the unsolved cases file take on a new significance:

Hopefully, we'll find out more about that case, which was one of the most gruesome around here in several years.
