Chris Matthews and the MSNBC nightime lineup, Salon Magazine and the New York Times hardest hit.
Looks like they are from Chechnya and what is Chechnya famous for?
Remember the Beslan hostage crisis where almost 400 people were killed?
Older terrorist brother identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev, his YouTube account hosted jihadi videos. Younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is on the run.
The Independent in the UK reports:
A suspect in Monday’s Boston’s Marathon bombings has died after being captured by police in a shootout just outside of the city that also left one officer dead. A massive manhunt is underway to find a second suspect.
Boston police commissioner Ed Davis confirmed that the second man is still at large in Watertown, a suburb about 6 miles north-west of Boston.
The missing suspect has been identified by the Associated Press as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A Tsarnaev from nearby Cambridge, Massachusetts. NBC News is reporting that the dead suspect was his brother.
Both are reportedly from a Russian region near Chechnya and have been living in the US for at least a year.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev appears to been educated at at a Cambridge high school before receiving a scholarship to pursue higher education in 2011.His name appears on a list of 45 recipients of the Cambridge City Scholarship, handed to students from Cambridge Rindge and Latin School.
The Daily Mail reports that while people were running from the scene or to help the injured, these two calmly stuck around to assess the carnage they caused.
One of them is dead, the other on the run. Twitter reports that the dead one had bits of shrapnel in his body consistent with the bombs.
As quick as the media was to hang this on some white, redneck Christianist they are just as slow to speculate that these guys just might be Muslim.

I heard Chris Matthews is on suicide watch, he’s having a little difficulty dealing with reality this morning.
Trapped, I betchya he’ll have some funky spin on this. Personally, I do not believe these two acted alone. It is amazing to me how many Saudis are allowed in this country now; the numbers have risen dramatically.
Yes Kels, it’s very interesting how many Saudis are here. Also, read that one bomber in Med school and drove a Mercedes, while their Mom shoplifted at Lord & Taylor. Bombers & shoplifters, not exactly great citizen material, are they?
Nope. If you wanna get freaked out totally 100%, visit this site:
Read it, not good news and DC wants people to give up their guns?
Fairly sure it was the police, not NRA types running around with their second amendment remedies, that killed and captured the bomber suspects.
Dave, what in the f**k are you babbling about bro? What precisely do you see as a sworn law enforcement officers job is?
And just what is “their second amendment remedies”? The 2nd Amendment doesn’t need a remedy. It isn’t sick. 🙂
Actually, as I pointed out, it was a private citizen who discovered the second terrorist…and nobody has been talking about a militia hunting them down, only having the means to protect their own life and limb rather that cowering under a dining room table and praying that a killer didn’t come to their house.
“Lone wolf” attacks in the past have generally come from right wing extremists, such as bombing abortion clinics and the Oklahoma City bombing. In the absence of hard evidence it’s not unusual for people to assume that it would have been a similar occurrence in this case.
We can only hope that elected officials don’t use this as an excuse to try and crack down on civil liberties, violate the US Constitution, and try and drum up xenophobia and hostility against another country because of the actions of two men. I know, fat chance right.

Well here’s one hell of an assertion. So prove it.
“We can only hope that elected officials don’t use this as an excuse to try and crack down on civil liberties, violate the US Constitution, and try and drum up xenophobia and hostility against another country because of the actions of two men. I know, fat chance right.”
Well lets just see how fast you boi signs another Executive Order. Then I will expect you to come back to us, and hyperventilate demonstratively about how ole Barry just ganked your civil liberty.
I’ll be here, waiting.
The Obama supporting Marxists, enjoy it when “the State” uses illegal power to “control” those of us who believe in freedom and liberty. So no, they won’t be complaining about O’s executive orders. “They” believe they are above “the law” and those executive orders won’t be used against them since they support the Marxists. They won’t complain until the illegal power is used on all citizens, oops, subjects.
You are right – there was absence of not only hard evidence but any evidence at all that it was related to anything right wing…and there is a pattern in America of the liberal media and the political left to immediately accuse their political opponents while completely ignoring those they protect…even to a point that these pressure cooker bombs were claimed to be the “signature” of a right wing bomber when no bomb like it has ever been used by anyone in a terror attack. So, yeah, there were a lot of assumptions made with no evidence but the telling aspect is not that the speculation that some mythical “right wing bomber” existed but the absence of speculation that a left wing or and Islamic bomber did.
And it is interesting that you, like the media, make broad assumptions absent of fact. There is no proof at this point that this was a “lone wolf” attack. Absence of evidence is not affirmative proof. We don’t have the full story yet, so it might be prudent to keep your accusations to yourself until we know a little more – you will avoid embarrassment by doing so.
There appears to be much evidence Boston was not a “lone wolf attack” and this administration is in the process of helping the attackers by deporting and covering up “other’s” involvement.
The mosque the 2 brothers attended is reportedly funded and maintained by “the Muslim Brotherhood”.
Keep drinking the koolaid. Your imaginary assertions with zero evidence merely help discredit you. The NRA has over 5,000,000 members now. God fearing, family first, liberty loving Americans of ALL race, color, creed, and economic success.
Truth and liberty is infectious.
@ Dave from Down-under,
“Lone Wolf” attacks are overwhelmingly Anarchist / Socialist…..going back into the 19th Century even ( Garfield , McKinley, attempts on Ford Reagan etc etc..) … including Sarajevo 1914…..we are “Told” Oswald was a Commie….The Gabby Giffords shooter was a Leftie as was the Colorado shooter as was the LA cop who recently went on a rampage….. as was the Pennsylvania Occupy weirdo picked for tthreatening Obama outside the White House.
The list of Leftist Lone Wolf Loonies is endless …… your statement is completely false
