    So I guess that older brother just was "vacationing" for those 6 months back in Russia. And, as I said there was "course" that could have been used in the case of the younger brother now in custody. Something is fishy with this administration, and I notice you didn't even respond to the Benghazi coverup, which is now getting new life due to some wistle blowers in the government.

    No, only every time you try to deny that the muslim who commits the terror act was not influenced by his religion or that there are not elements within islam that promote violence and the forced conversion of the entire world and death to all infidels.

    I understand and appreciate the fact that the vast majority of muslims WANT peace and WANT to get along with those around them. I am NOT trying to label all muslims terrorists or all terrorists as muslim, but I will not deny that a disproportionate percentage of terrorists are muslim, as you seem to be trying to refute.

    I wonder if all the lefties will apologize to Chaffetz since when Chaffetz said last week he didnt believe the 2 acted alone they attacked him.

    considering that the three that were arrested were arrested for trying to conceal their friends guilt AFTER the fact then no I see no need for apologize.

    if we are going to bring up their religion every time a Muslim terrorist attacks then out of fairness lets start discussing the religon of those that commit any type of mass killing in the US since they will represent aboutthe same proportions. you can play games all you like Chris Bs intent is pretty clear.

    @m.g. scott,

    Or perhaps POTUS and the AG realized that the public safety exception to Miranda is a shaky one without a lot of legal precedent to use as guidance, and (given the considerable photographic, forensic, and other evidence against the suspect) therefore not worth the risk that a judge will throw out any evidence based on statements made by Tsarnaev before he was mirandized on due process grounds. The kid may be a terrorist, but he's an American citizen who committed a crime and was arrested on American soil. Miranda rights still apply with very little course.

    It's been a while since I had a criminal procedure course, but that seems far more likely than suggesting that somehow the President wants the conspiracy to be limited to the Tsarnaev brothers and is deliberately covering up evidence or impeding the criminal investigation. I emphasize again that there is ZERO indication that today's arrests had anything to do with a wider conspiracy that existed prior to the bombing. That the press isn't backing up your conspiracy theories may have to do with the lack of evidence rather than a cover up.

    Re: One of a Few

    Your're not one of those "One mans terriorist is another mans freedom fighter" believers are you? And "the bombers don't seem to be connected with any radical group". Really? How about radical Islam? You even go on to use the term Muslim radicals later in your post. That's connected enough for me. And as for Americans having more to fear from fellow Americans, that is no doubt true, especially with things like drunk driving deaths on the highway, which we all have to fear. And which take a lot more lives than terriorists. So far anyway. If the terriorist ever get a WMD here, well........

    I guess it depends on your definition of a terrorist. The bombers don't seem to be connected with any radical group. Evidence may show otherwise in the end. But right now they just seem to be people who wanted to hurt as many people as possible. In terms of death toll, less than the Conn, Ariz and Colo shooters. The fact is American's have a lot more to fear from fellow Americans than they ever will from a muslim radicals. Take for instance, a Texas fertilizer warehouse owner who apparently skirted the law and leveled a substantial portion of a town. But if dog only barks at radical muslim's, then I guess if you could get rid of them, the dog would think the world was okay.

    Simply going on the fact that the bomber was quickly put into the legal system where he does not have to talk to anyone now. It was not legally necessary. Why were they so quick to do that? Plus, history shows that rarely does an attack like that have no others involved in it. In any case it is necessary for the authorities to find out if there is some conspiracy. That is just common sense public safety. I don't trust Obama or Holder. It goes to the Benghazi stuff too. Too much cover up and not enough Woodward and Bernstein type reporting these days from the mainstream press. I don't like it when the 4th estate protects public officials and is not skeptical of them whatever their party. Their job is to be skeptical in all cases. We've lost that with Obama in the White House because the "journalists" have such an emotional vested interest in Obama's Presidency.

    Obama, Holder, etal, refuse to acknowledge WHO the enemy is. Political "correctness" in this country has boxed us all into a corner. The FEAR of saying something "wrong" has paralyzed us.

    This is BY FAR the weakest President in the history of America. Obama is a one man wrecking ball, and a total disaster.

    1% of the US population is Muslim.

    I must just be extremely good at guessing when I correctly said on day 1 the terrorists were likely muslims since I only had a 1% chance of being right.

    What a good guess I am!

    Pure coincidence I am sure

    "I have a hunch we'll learn the religious preference of these new 3 terrorists will also be Muslim."

    They're basically being charged with tampering with evidence. That's not terrorism.

    muslims constitute a disproportionate share of the terrorists in the US and world-wide. same as yesterday, the same as the day before, and the day before that.

    Does not mean all muslims are terrorists, or all terrorists are muslim; just that muslims represent a disproportionate share of terrorists.

    I missed seeing liberal claims which said that the investigation was complete and the Voston bombers acted alone without help.

    Nice red herring Chris B.

    And just why would the President and Attorney General only be interested in a conspiracy of two? I'm sorry, you have as much or less evidence of that than Chaffetz did when he started mouthing off about a wider conspiracy.

    I'm weary of people claiming speculation as fact without evidence, simply based on their kneejerk political responses. It is one of the things destroying civil discourse in this country.

    Gee, it's funny to watch people attack Chris B for being right. True, these 3 may not be directly connected to the bombing. But, one wonders just how many pieces of this puzzle remain to be filled in. Apparantly if Obama and Holder had their way, there would only be two.

  • Res Novae Ashburn, VA

    The preliminary reports seem to be that the 3 in custody weren't connected with the bombing itself, and are likely being charged with obstruction of justice for disposing of evidence after the fact. Let's see how this plays out before asserting that Chaffetz's "gut feeling" of a larger conspiracy were correct.

    @ Chris B

    Ideologues are always the same and it doesn't matter what the ideology is! It never matters what happens, extremists attack and blame their polar opposites. You have shown over and over that your position is that all the social problems in the world are caused by liberals, Muslims or President Obama. The world isn't and never has beem black and white but rather many shades of gray. Rational thinking seeks for what can work to the best for the many rather than embracing ideological gridlock solving nothing.

    He was right.

    I have a hunch we'll learn the religious preference of these new 3 terrorists will also be Muslim.

    I was attacked for saying on day 1 they would be Muslims. I was told on these boards it was likely NRA card carrying Christians.

    I was right. Again.
