    Really thorough and well-written article on the family background, in anyone's interested:

    All of this seems so very weird. These two young guys weren't stupid, why in the heck did they plan an attack in their own town where everyone knew them?

    I could see if it was just one lone nutcase but TWO and they were brothers? And the younger one was supposedly so normal and possibly a pot head? Did his older brother say "Hey, let's set a bomb off at the Marathon this year" and the younger one just agreed that is was a good idea?

    This is all just so strange especially because they were supposedly so normal a year ago.

    I feel really bad for the estranged family members. I'm so glad the uncles are condemning it and the aunt is saying she just needs evidence herself (fair enough, imho).

    I bet the uncles loaned the main family money on occasion. Like families do. The estrangement may have to do with that sort of thing as is also common in families.

    It sounds mainly personal to the two guys, like a Columbine. OTOH, since they visited their dad (and mom?) in the Caucasian republics, they certainly could have sought out terrorist groups had they wanted to. So I think there is still the possibility of a formal terrorist connection.

    There are small groups/individuals all the time in the US who are arrested for getting involved in terror cells. We've had our share in NC. Fortunately, the FBI is usually well aware of them and they get busted. I wish that had happened here They may just be rogue and idiot Columbine types, which are so hard to infiltrate.

    One of the Chechen terrorists who carried out the Boston Marathon bombings could have been deported years ago after a criminal arrest and/or conviction and the other was granted American citizenship on the 11th anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil.

    It's my opinion if no link provided.

    If the older brother was married with a child, has the wife been in contact with LE? Where is she?

    Thanks MsF.

    The way the video reported it I thought this was a recent happening. Like in the last few months prior to him bombing the marathon.

    Of course the elephant in the room is that it's being reported he recently converted to Islam in that video too. *IF* that is accurate, I wonder if he might have gotten involved with some people that practice a radical interpretation of that religion?

    Just pondering. Not going any where with this specifically. His reportedly recent conversion might not have anything to do with this at all. He may very well have not converted or converted and practiced in a very tolerant manner. Just curious.

    But I will say that if what everyone who knows/knew the youngest is true- I do feel really bad that something changed him.
    Nothing changed him. He had a side that people did not know about. He chose to kill innocent people. There wasn't some external force that made him go from Mr. Nice Guy and into a terrorist.

    I agree with what the Uncle said in his interview:

    "This family (presumably referring to the bombers' father & Aunt who spoke out earlier) does not know how to express their grief for the TRUE VICTIMS".

    I like the Uncle - and I'm glad he's been vocal in condemning his nephews' atrocious murderous actions, rather than seeking to blame the government or seeking to claim that these two terrorists were set up.

    with all due respect, we do not know the root of his actions yet.

    I think this means it's a bad place to smoke weed because of all the cops.
    Just my opinion though.
    So does Boston hold these marathons in August also? Seems like he was plotting it beginning in August if there was no marathon.

    They had to know there were going to be surveillance cameras ands lots of tourists taking videos of their friends running in the marathon. Did they think they were not going to be eventually ID'ed? I don't get that part.

    For a 19 year old on the run. I am shocked. Hope they get him soon.
