I have already written lengthy piece yesterday about the increasing number of bizarre aspects to the Tsarnaev brothers' alleged bombing of the Boston Marathon, including questions about where the elder Tsarnaev brother, Tarmelan, who was delivering pizzas, and whose wife was slaving away at a low-paid home health aid job, got the money to buy his fancy clothes and late model Mercedes Benz, why the Marathon finish line area was crawling with black-jacketed mercenaries from the Craft International Security mercenaries agency, and how the police and federal agencies and National Guard managed to lock down a city of a million in a few hours' time without any advance planning.
Now photos are turning up that raise more questions. One, admittedly ambiguous, shows the younger, surviving brother, Dzhokhar, rushing away from the scene of the bombing. . This image when examined carefully suggests he may still wearing his backpack -- the one he supposedly left behind to explode in the crowd. The white strip coming down the right side of his chest could be the shoulder strap of his bag and is definitely wrongly placed to be the lining of his coat.
Furthermore, he points to images, already widely circulated and shown below, of the exploded backpack, with a unique white square on its top -- a design that is clearly visible on the top of a black backpack being worn by one of two Craft mercs -- the very dark-skinned person who, ironically, was initially controversially identified in some mainstream media as a suspected bomber.
Then the real shocker: Another image, also widely circulated, shows that same Craft mercenary character running from the bomb explosion without his backpack!
Obviously, images can be photoshopped these days so caution is advised, but while that image of Dzhokhar running is new, the other ones, of the exploded backpack (a Fox TV screen grab) and the Craft mercenary standing--both showing that distinctive white square marking--were widely available since early after the bombing occurred. As I wrote in the headline of my earlier story in ThisCantBeHappening!: There's a rush to judgement in the media and the government to convict the captured Dzhokhan for this horrible crime, and to execute him for it, but "Something's Rotten in Boston."
If it were just a matter of this one young man's fate, that rush to judgement would be bad enough, but his case has been used to justify an extraordinary abridgement of Constitutional freedoms -- both the denial of right to counsel and the de-facto and excessive imposition of martial law over an entire city during his manhunt. That makes these issues particularly important to clarify and explain. It also makes it important for the media to be asking about them, which at least in the case of the corporate media, is not being done.
