FBI Casting Set Stage for Boston Marathon Bombing, Shootout, Charade

Update: CBS reveals in their report, "CBS News: FBI Interviewed Tamerlan Tsarnaev 2 Years Ago," that the FBI initially attempted to deny any contact prior to the Boston bombings with slain suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev. It was only after Russia's RT publicly pursued the story that the FBI finally admitted officially it had. 

The implications are that the FBI knows Russia both possesses information on the case and is prepared to go public with it. For those involved in America's terror racket, now would be a good time to divest. For those involved specifically in the Boston Marathon bombing, now would be a good time to come forward with information. Any and all involved, in whatever capacity, wittingly or unwittingly, stand to become scapegoats in order to save the FBI, DHS, TSA, and other federal agencies clearly engaged in a massive coverup. 

The Boston Police and a slew of "reputable" mainstream media outlets had reported earlier that the two suspects involved in a deadly shootout near Boston and suspected to be involved in the Boston bombings were missing Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, and Mike Mulugeta. The International Business Times reported in their article, "Boston Marathon Bombing: Indian-Origin Sunil Tripathi One of Alleged Suspects," that:
Boston police on Friday revealed the names of two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, one of whom is an Indian origin person, Sunil Tripathi, reported CBS-affiliated television station WFSB.

The other suspect named in the case is Mike Mulugeta. On Friday morning, it was reported that police arrested one of them.
Where did CBS hear that "Boston police revealed" this information?

CBS News would then blame the entire shift in narrative on "social media" and in particular, Reddit.

Sunil Tripathi mysteriously disappeared in mid-March of 2013, leaving his personal items in his room. The FBI had been involved in Tripathi's case, as reported by New York Daily News in their article, "F.B.I. joins search for Brown University student Sunil Tripathi, who has been missing for more than a week," which reported: 
The F.B.I has joined the search for a depressed and possibly suicidal Brown University student, who has been missing for more than a week, and have expanded their area of interest to the Northeast corridor.

Sunil Tripathi, 22, was last seen on the Providence, R.I. campus around 11 a.m. on Saturday, March 16. His cell phone, wallet, ID cards and bicycle - his main form of transportation - were found in the apartment he shared with other Brown University students.
It is not uncommon for the FBI to aid in searches for missing people, especially if the search involves multiple states. However, that this false lead, and the allegedly "confirmed" identity of the Boston bombing suspects, both involved cases the FBI was working on prior to the Boston bombings and the subsequent deadly shootout and manhunt, raises immense suspicion. Here's why.

Suspects Were on FBI Radar for Years

The Wall Street Journal now reports that the FBI had interviewed at least one of the two Boston bombing suspects as early as 2011. In their article, "Renewed Fears About Homegrown Terror Threat," WSJ reports that:
The Federal Bureau of Investigation interviewed suspected marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011 at the request of the Russian government, but didn't find evidence of suspicious activity and closed the case, an FBI official said Friday.

The fact that the FBI spoke with Mr. Tsarnaev, who was killed Friday morning in a firefight with authorities, is likely to become a focal point of the post mortem into how the attack was able to be carried out at the Boston Marathon. It also speaks to the challenge faced by authorities as terrorism morphs to some extent from the complex international plots of a decade ago to small-scale attacks carried out by individuals located within U.S.
RT would report that the mother of the suspect claimed the FBI had been monitoring her sons ever since, and led them along "every step of the way." In an article titled, "'They were set up, FBI followed them for years'- Tsarnaevs' mother to RT," it stated of the suspects' mother:
But her biggest suspicion surrounding the case was the constant FBI surveillance she said her family was subjected to over the years. She is surprised that having been so stringent with the entire family, the FBI had no idea the sons were supposedly planning a terrorist act.
Interestingly enough, the WSJ also stated that:
The profile of the Boston bombing in many ways resembles a number of the recent foiled plots, a federal law-enforcement official said. They have been small with little or no intelligence chatter, and have involved suspects who have been in the U.S. for several years and appeared to have assimilated.
What the WSJ categorically fails to mention is that these "foiled plots" were from start to finish engineered by the FBI itself, with suspects, just as Tsarnaevs' mother had claimed of her sons, under "constant FBI surveillance," and in fact led along every step of the way in the lead up to high-profile arrests. What is also subsequently left out by the WSJ is that during these undercover operations, real vehicles, weapons, and explosives are involved, and usually switched out for inert items right before the final attack and arrests are made.

One thing the WSJ is absolutely correct about is that the FBI's involvement prior to the attack will become "a focal point of the post mortem into how the attack was able to be carried out at the Boston Marathon."

While the WSJ offers nothing useful in examining that focal point, a look at the FBI's "foiled plots" will reveal shocking implications about just how deeply the FBI may have been involved with these suspects before the bombing, shootout, and manhunt.

FBI's History of Handing "Terror Suspects" Weapons and Live Explosives

In late September 2011, AFP reported that a man was charged with "planning to fly explosive-packed, remote controlled airplanes into the Pentagon and the Capitol in Washington." In its report, "US man charged with Pentagon bomb plot," AFP stated (emphasis added):
During the alleged plot, undercover FBI agents posed as accomplices who supplied Ferdaus with one remote-controlled plane, C4 explosives, and small arms that he allegedly envisioned using in a simultaneous ground assault in Washington.

However, ''the public was never in danger from the explosive devices, which were controlled by undercover FBI employees,'' the FBI said.

Ferdaus was arrested in Framingham, near Boston, immediately after putting the newly delivered weapons into a storage container, the FBI said.

Authorities described Ferdaus as a physics graduate from Northeastern University who followed al-Qaeda and was committed to ''violent jihad'' since early last year.
In addition to explosives and "small arms," the FBI also provided the suspect with grenades. According to in a release titled, "Massachusetts Man Charged with Plotting Attack on Pentagon and U.S. Capitol and Attempting to Provide Material Support to a Foreign Terrorist Organization," it stated (emphasis added):
Between May and September 2011, Ferdaus researched, ordered and acquired the necessary components for his attack plans, including one remote controlled aircraft (F-86 Sabre). This morning prior to his arrest, Ferdaus received from the UCs [undercover FBI employees] 25 pounds of (what he believed to be) C-4 explosives, six fully-automatic AK-47 assault rifles (machine guns) and grenades. In June 2011, Ferdaus rented a storage facility in Framingham, Mass., under a false name, to use to build his attack planes and maintain all his equipment.
If bombs, guns, and grenades sound strikingly familiar to the arsenal allegedly wielded by the most recent "terror suspects" the FBI admits it was in contact with since at least as early as 2011, that is because it is - the standard terror-playset the FBI provides its patsies.

In November 2010, a similar "plot" was engineered, then "disrupted," also by the FBI - this time in Portland, Oregon. The so-called "Christmas Tree Bomber" attempted to remote detonate a van he believed was filled with explosives, provided by the FBI, before being arrested during a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at Pioneer Courthouse Square. The FBI's official statement regarding the incident revealed that FBI agents had handled, even detonated live explosives with the entrapped suspect in Lincoln County in the lead up to the final failed bombing.

The FBI's official statement titled, "Oregon Resident Arrested in Plot to Bomb Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony in Portland," released by the U.S. Attorney’s Office on November 26, 2010 stated (emphasis added):
According to the affidavit, on November 4, 2010, Mohamud and the undercover FBI operatives traveled to a remote location in Lincoln County, Ore., where they detonated a bomb concealed in a backpack as a trial run for the upcoming attack. Afterwards, on the drive back to Corvallis, undercover FBI operatives questioned Mohamud as to whether he was capable of looking at the bodies of those who would be killed in the upcoming attack in Portland. According to the affidavit, Mohamud responded, “I want whoever is attending that event to leave, to leave either dead or injured.”

Upon returning to Corvallis that same day, the affidavit alleges that Mohamud recorded a video of himself with the undercover FBI operatives in which he read a written statement that offered a rationale for his bomb attack. On Nov. 18, 2010, undercover FBI operatives picked up Mohamud to travel to Portland in order to finalize the details of the attack.

Earlier this evening, Mohamud was arrested after he attempted to remotely detonate what he believed to be explosives in a van that was parked near the Christmas tree lighting ceremony in Portland, the affidavit alleges.
Yet another operation was carried out by the FBI in February 2012, where yet another otherwise incapable patsy was provided with live explosives in the lead up to what was ultimately a failed suicide bombing at the US Capitol. USA Today reported in their article, "FBI foils alleged suicide bomb attack on U.S. Capitol," that (emphasis added): 
According to a counterterrorism official, El Khalifi "expressed interest in killing at least 30 people and considered targeting a building in Alexandria and a restaurant, synagogue and a place where military personnel gather in Washington before he settled on the Capitol after canvassing that area a couple of times," the Associated Press writes. During the year-long investigation, El Khalifi detonated explosives at a quarry in the capital region with undercover operatives. He is not believed to be affiliated with al-Qaeda, officials said.
The frightening trend of the FBI cultivating otherwise incapable "terror" suspects, providing them with and detonating real explosives, small arms and grenades before giving them inert or controlled devices to carry out attacks on public targets where mass casualties are averted only at the last possible moment, sets the stage for at the very least, incredible potential for catastrophic blunders, and at worst, false flag attacks.

But does this mean the FBI is capable of turning such operations "live," resulting in real terror attacks and loss of life? Has the FBI ever presided over "sting operations" that were actually carried out? The answer is yes.

The FBI in fact was presiding over the terrorists who carried out the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The role of the FBI leading up to the deadly attack would most likely have gone unreported had an FBI informant not taped his conversations with FBI agents after growing suspicious during the uncover operation.

The New York Times in their article, "Tapes Depict Proposal to Thwart Bomb Used in Trade Center Blast," reported:
Law-enforcement officials were told that terrorists were building a bomb that was eventually used to blow up the World Trade Center, and they planned to thwart the plotters by secretly substituting harmless powder for the explosives, an informer said after the blast.

The informer was to have helped the plotters build the bomb and supply the fake powder, but the plan was called off by an F.B.I. supervisor who had other ideas about how the informer, Emad A. Salem, should be used, the informer said.

The account, which is given in the transcript of hundreds of hours of tape recordings Mr. Salem secretly made of his talks with law-enforcement agents, portrays the authorities as in a far better position than previously known to foil the Feb. 26 bombing of New York City's tallest towers. The explosion left six people dead, more than 1,000 injured and damages in excess of half a billion dollars.
Controlled Every Step of the Way

RT has quoted the mother of the recent Boston bombing suspects as claiming of the FBI:
They used to come [to our] home, they used to talk to me…they were telling me that he [the older, 26-y/o Tamerlan] was really an extremist leader and that they were afraid of him. They told me whatever information he is getting, he gets from these extremist sites… they were controlling him, they were controlling his every step…and now they say that this is a terrorist act!
"They were controlling him, they were controlling his every step," indeed. Posing as "extremist leaders" and leading witless patsies along, just as the FBI has done in every case regarding its previous "foiled plots," and even successful plots, like the 1993 WTC attack, should shift America's attention not to Chechnya or the "threat" of domestic terrorism, but the immense incompetence and/or criminality of the FBI.

As even mainstream sources concede the FBI had some sort of relationship with the Boston bombing suspects before the attack, there will be two arguments made. One, that the FBI simply doesn't have enough authority or resources to prevent "domestic terror" attacks, and needs more still.

The other argument is that the FBI and other federal agencies have been behind every domestic terror attack or "foiled plot" for years, and constitutes the single greatest danger to the American people, both literally in terms of life and limb, and in terms of subverting and stripping away their liberty and dignity amidst a growing police state. 

In turn, this would require local law enforcement to cease all cooperation with the FBI, particularly with its Joint Terror Task Force (JTTF), raid local offices and make arrests where appropriate, and fold any agents who are willing and capable, into local and state agencies. In essence, the FBI should be dismantled from top to bottom, and an alternative put in its place.

What is clear is that the Boston bombing suspects were contacted by the FBI at least as early as 2011. Between then and the attack, there is a gap where the FBI may or may not have been involved. While the FBI may have in fact been cultivating these suspects prior to the Boston bombing, they are now the very ones "investigating" the case, opening the door to the destruction of evidence, and ultimately a coverup.

What's more, there's most likely several more of these operations being engineered right now by the FBI. If America is serious about stopping "the next Boston bombing," the key is not issuing the FBI and its federal affiliates more authority and funding, but issuing local law enforcement warrants to raid FBI offices.

While the people of Boston allegedly take to the streets to "celebrate" the capture of the remaining Boston bombing suspect, celebrations should turn to outrage as details emerge that yet another terror attack in America, which has claimed innocent lives, was the work not of cave dwelling militants abroad, but by the very people we foolishly entrust with our safety and security at home.

Can you imagine the number of "sleepers" we have here who are on our welfare system, attending our churches, are our neighbors who eat dinner with us, and that our children play with their children?!!! And, their most fervent plan and desire is to destroy and kill us, all the time plotting and waiting for the moment they can blow us up and we think they are upstanding great neighbors and co-workers. These people are on our police forces and inside our government...... and our White House.

The FBI controlled the older brother because they kept an eye on him and were afraid of him? But the crowds cheering the police after the capture of the surviving brother were " allegedly take to the streets..."

This article makes many good points and raises many important questions but such spinning of facts reveals a pre-existing bias that seeks to manipulate and distort reality in order to justify that bias.

I like the idea of dismantling the FBI; I like the idea of dismantling the CIA. But no case to do that will ever succeed when such clear bias dominates the argument.

Let's dismantle the Police State and the World Police Force. Let's dismantle the 2nd Amendment and the anti-democratic election structure which gives minorities the power. But let's not pretend our worst fears and speculations are proven.

Great article, that nails it. See also the wider aspect: David Sirota, AIPAC hack writing in Salon. Tony nails the mechanics of this issue perfectly, but to understand who controls from the top, FBI/CIA/DHS etc., ask which depraved and evil ethnic tribe hates white Christian European Americans with a passion and will do anything to destroy their country and culture with false flag terror and uncontrolled immigration from the third world?

What about the money trail. The older brother is reported to have left college to train as an amateur boxer. He is reported to drive a Mercedes. How did he support himself. Was he paid to participate in a bombing plot?

The FBI engineers False Prosecutions and harassment operations to incite violence in order to justify arresting citizens. They have "black files" that are not released during FOIA (as exposed by Jason Leopold) in order to protect themselves from their participation in illegal acts that radicalize individuals and make them feel as if violence is their only means of achieving justice. While I'm sure there are some FBI agents who are decent, law abiding citizens, many of them are not and this is facilitated at high levels. There is more to this story with regard to what the FBI knew and what they did to this family.....and whether or not their actions provoked this attack.

Have a peek at this analysis of the injury scene at the Boston Marathon. It was written by an EMS professional. The conclusion is that the scene used actors and was staged.

So what's new.?
Ever pay much attention to how our DEA operates and overseas our CIA poppy roads.
WE GOT growers fighting growers and shippers fighting shippers and when ee grt done making one grower shipper producer ring large enough we bust em and startanother grooming elsewhere.
HELL SAME outfit that 9 Regan and Ollie North used to arm Nicaragua and the anti Sandanistas in Honduras while running drugs guns and even blowing up a cuban civilian jetliner.

RE: MIT Killing Evidence
The Middlesex County District Attorney's office confirmed the officer's death. The officer, who has not been identified, was reportedly answering a disturbance call when he was shot multiple times about 10:30 p.m.

Meanwhile, the university is pleading for students to stay indoors and out of harm's way.

"The shooter remains at large, police continue to search the campus," the school warned in a campus alert at 12:37 a.m. "Please REMAIN INDOORS until further notice."

The university issued the first alert at 10:48 p.m.: "There are gunshots reported in the vicinity of Building 32 (Stata Center). Area is cordoned off. Stay away from area."

According to audio of MIT police dispatch radio chatter posted online, an officer described the suspected shooter as a black male wearing black clothing and weighing approximately 120 pounds.

Stunned students asked news reporters if the shooting could be tied to this week's terror attack. However, no motive for the Thursday shooting has been given."
Below is a link to the radio archives
The only suspects mentioned at first was a black male 5'5", 120 lbs. And later a light skinned male 5'11" 200lbs wearing a cowboy hat, had a gun and was on Vassar Street.He robbed 711. No siteing of the Bombing suspects near the MIT murder scene.

Well, there is one bit of good news. You are 100% in no danger at all of being killed by a terrorist who came from Mexico as an illegal immigrant. It is currently policy to blend America and Mexico for the North American Union, so, the government can't stage a false flag attack using Mexicans. Feel free to party at any Mexican holidays, Mexican-culture public gatherings. Get your taco on. The only 'bomb free' thing you will find in America.

"For those involved in America's terror racket, now would be a good time to divest. For those involved specifically in the Boston Marathon bombing, now would be a good time to come forward with information."

LOL! Yeah, come forward and watch what Obama does. If you think the 'shoot out' with the twins was something just you wait and see. I guess dear Tony has been away from the US for too long and is not aware or paying attention of what this administration has done to and with whistleblowers. I just can't take this man seriously for anything he says.

1) As the second terrorist in boat had high interrogation value, did his capture require his further wounding? Were disarming methods such as tear gas considered?

2) perhaps the older brother was a double, both FBI informer and a jihadi. Were possible signs missed in the local Islamic circles?

3) Event screening. it may be hindsight to ask if the huge marathon security included selective screening of random, odd and profiled spectators especially those with heavy bags? The next Boston Marathon will have TSA-style sterile grandstands under a canopy of drones.

4) Could the photos of possible suspects have been released even earlier to crowdsourcing?

5) Were police at the first shootout armed only with handguns against rifles and explosives?

7) Why lockdown all Boston everything except for the police favored Dunkin Donuts? Did the 20-blocks dragnet require citywide mega-curfew? Was curfew warranted or uniformed grandstanding? As terrorist aim to demoralize populace and hurt economy, responding by promptly returning to civil routine would have minimized the public trauma.

8 ) With all their tracking and surveillance resources did the police try scent hounds or aerial thermal survey of boats?
