Dzhokhar Tsarnaev Unarmed At Time Of Boat "Shootout"

Tyler Durden's picture

Three days ago we pointed out that while the story surrounding the alleged Boston Bombers had many gaping holes in it while it was being made up in process, following the filing of the official sworn FBI affidavit making things up out of thin air would become far more complicated. Sure enough, one specific section in the 11 page sworn testimony caught our attention: the one discussing the capture of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev following the boat "shootout". To wit:

We were thus surprised to find the first gaping hole in the government's official version just 3 short days later. Because as it turns out, as per the WaPo, the proability of a "shootout" between the suspect and the Boston police was severly curtailed following the revelation that he had been unarmed the entire time he was hiding in the boat.

Although police feared he was heavily armed, the suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing had no firearms when he came under a barrage of police gunfire that struck the boat where he was hiding, according to multiple federal law enforcement officials.


Authorities said they were desperate to capture Dzhokhar Tsarnaev so he could be questioned. The FBI, however, declined to discuss what prompted the gunfire.


Other law enforcement officials said the shooting may have been prompted by the chaos of the moment and some action that led the officers to believe Tsarnaev had fired a weapon or was about to detonate explosives.


“They probably didn’t know whether he had a gun,” said one law enforcement official, who like others interviewed for this article spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation. “Hours earlier, he and his brother had killed a police officer, shot another officer and thrown explosives out of their cars as the police were chasing them. They couldn’t assume that he did not have a gun and more explosives.”

The FBI, having been happy to provide the testimony for probable cause, suddenly finds itself silent:

The FBI declined to discuss the exact sequence of events that led officers to open fire on Tsarnaev’s hiding place and whether the dozens of bullets that struck the boat caused any of his gunshot wounds.

One wonders then just how the story about the purported suicide attempt involving a shot into his own throat when he had no gun, will develop from here on out.

Finally, trust Joe Biden to put it all into perspective:

On Wednesday, Vice President Biden eulogized Sean Collier, the slain Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer, and denounced Tsarnaev and his dead brother as “two twisted, perverted, cowardly knockoff jihadis.

Indeed, who needs an in depth investigation when you have a Gun Tzar, well-versed in all the facts months ahead of any official conclusion?

Oh well: when it comes to putting the heavy foot of the law down, the end always justifies the means. Now it was two suspected (still) bombers and "cowardly knockoff jihaids." Who will it be tomorrow? Don't worry - trust the government to know the difference.

Well thats probable cause, right there.

Just think of how barbarous and vicious the government law enforcement action  would have been if the Chechen Chump had a gun.

Obama said he was armed, no?

It wasn't a shoot-out.

It was a 'shoot-in'.

What ever happened to, "This is the police.  Come out with your hands up?"

They don't make 'em like they used to.

So they've Mirandized him but he 'confessed' to the car-jacking victim and to FBI before this happened so will it stand on just the cj victims testimony because it sounds like a US citizen being questioned for 16 hours by the FBI and confessing without being Mirandized would not stand up in court.  It's the Keystone Kops...

Back in the olde days his defense attorney coulda claimed and had substantional grounds that VPPlugs screwed the pooch for a fair trial by making all those deliberative conclusions.
Nah.  Not anymore...

That visual evidence on that video is compelling-young Tsar leaving the scene with his backpack, Craft guy leaving the scene without his backpack. Craft guy's backpack has the same white square as the shredded bomb backpack.  Boston strong?  Then demand the truth!!

Craft Int'l guys with both backpacks on their bodies is from a photo taken after bomb blew out window glass.  You need to see the original pic it was cropped from.  Also, Craft pack straps are not tutone.

I'm not saying its not a false flag, I'm saying those two Craft guys still had their backpacks on after the bomb went off.  GET IT???

Boston weak, pathetic, cowardly, ignorant, credulous, naive, stupid, did I say pathetic, servile, and slavish.

They can't be patsies if they actually planted the bombs, which they did.  Stop being an idiot.

government and MSM said so....  so it must be true, i get it.  thanks for that valuable contribution.

how about this aero....hey u guys want to help us with a bomb drill....ok...than put this fake bomb in that can and walk away... ok...thats one way he could be a patsie....maybe you could critically think and come up with a 2nd way...

That's hillarious!!

smlbizman's picture

on the serious side of that is...if they had a relationship with the fbi, as verified by mom , maybe as informants or who knows..than hey, beavis,  butthead you want to make 50.00...

Harbanger's picture

Lets not be beavis and buttheads ourselves.  They're not angels, the mother was arrested for robbing a clothing store last year.  They also have a long history of working the system.  If anything they outsmarted the authorities and were double agents.

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

Outsmarted?  They were still in Boston three days after the bombing.  If it was them, then one thing they are not, is smart.

Offthebeach's picture

And anyways, they were incompetent. Grossly incompetent, and sloppy. A 11 year old, raise on his bank robbing, car stealing, home invading Charlestown father's knee would of still be on the lam, free. So, that right there is just punishnt by being run over( aka, "Speedbump") or throatshot as "Flashbang" was.
Life is tough for Allah ball lickers. Tougher for the stupid.

Besides, cops are human too, and who wouldn't't want to shoot up a Muppet every now and then?

Either a magic boat or cops who can only hit a target that resembles their gun range targets.

I guess now we know why DHS ordered 1.6B rounds.  They have a bunch of officers who can't shoot.

A very astute Democrat from NY said "No one needs ten bullets to kill a deeeeah!"

Abiotic Oil's picture

Let's talk about where all the rounds went after passing through the thin fiberglass hull of the boat,  causing the bullets to pitch and yaw, and then go swarming out into Waterown like angry bees.

If they even managed to hit the boat that is.



aerojet's picture

Oh please, that's just so much nonsense.  They fired into the boat, if any rounds left the yard, I'd be surprised.  My biggest question is why did HRT even open fire if they were never fired upon?  Perhaps they didn't want the guy to talk.  But if that's true, why did they shoot him in the throat and then allow him to be taken alive?  Why not just finish the job?  So that means they're simply incompetent, which is better than there being a conspiracy.

Confused's picture

Incompetence would be far worse.


He's only alive because you are told. But if he isn't speaking, and no one sees him.......


Tin Foil is tight today. Sorry.

Abiotic Oil's picture

You're kidding right?  5.56 rounds travelling at 3200FPS are going to be stopped by a fiberglass boat?  Maybe if they were shooting frangible ammo, but that would have ripped the kids head off.  I have seen that little .223 diameter round go in one side of a car and come out the other no problem several times.

Will you stand behind as many layers of fibreglass like were used in the boat and let me shoot at you?  We can see who is right?

Fake bullets; fake bomb; actors all the way.

This is necessary for urban warfare training.  Good thing nobody really got hurt.  Bad thing that everyone is told that this was real.

Hmm, argue with 3 or 4 dead bodies.
