Three More Arrests

I’m slammed today at work, but here’s a thread to discuss the arrests today in Boston that are apparently related to the marathon attack. Right now the charge is lying to investigators. That sounds less like something they’ll be prosecuted for than it a is a charge to take them into custody while the feds figure out what to really charge them with. Reports are that they helped destroy evidence. But it’s not clear that they knew what they were doing (Tsarnaev called them when he became a suspect and asked them to throw out stuff). I suspect that Dershowitz is right and what the feds are really after is getting these guys to talk about what they may or may not know about a larger terror connection.

Updates as events warrant.

Ken from Popehat is on it:

Very briefly, the affidavit alleges that Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov saw emptied-out fireworks in accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s room, concluded that he was one of the Boston Marathon bombers, and decided to dispose of the container of hollowed-out fireworks, apparently to protect Tsarnaev. Phillipos, the FBI alleges, gave multiple statements and initially lied about what he knew of actions by Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov.

Sounds serious.

    And don’t forget the undated photo of them all in Times Square.

    As I wrote in the conspiracy thread, this is just a juvenile distraction and/or coincidence “look something shiny” in an effort to take attention away from the upcoming Benghazi hearings.

    This administration has had much success among the ‘low information Comedy Central is newsl’ crowd.

    You’re saying that you actually believe the Obama Administration was behind this bombing?
    Or are you saying they might not have been behind it, but they’ll do everything they can to draw attention to the follow-up because of Benghazi?

    Obviously I believe the later. Please try to keep up.

    Jay Carney said at a press conference today “Benghazi happened a long time ago” when questioned about the whistle blowers.

    Hilary is quoted (and on video) as saying “What difference does it make” when asked about the attack. Of course that was all 2 months after the 2012 erection when it was hoped most LIV’ers had gone back to sleep.
