British media reports claim that FBI spoke with Tamerlan Tsarnaev and said they knew he’d carried out bombing
April 22, 2013
In a report released by Channel Four news in Britain, a reporter has revealed that the mother of the suspected Boston bombers has claimed that FBI officials contacted her eldest son after the bombing had taken place and before the shootout that claimed his life.
Speaking with the suspects’ father, Anzor, reporter Nick Sturdee says that the father claims Tamerlan contacted his mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, two or three days after the bombing.
According to Sturdee’s report, “Tamerlan told her the FBI had just rung him and accused him of being behind the attacks, and that he had responded by saying ‘that’s your problem’”.
The report states that “The FBI in Boston told Channel 4 News they currently won’t confirm or deny any claims about their involvement.”
However, a further AP report states that “The FBI is strongly refuting a report by Britain’s Channel 4 News that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was contacted by federal agents last week.”
“Story is false,” a spokeswoman for the agency said in an email response to a Boston Herald inquiry.
Although this information will likely never be verified, it does suggest even more evidence that the FBI knowingly lied to the public when officials claimed that they did not know who the suspects were upon releasing pictures of them at the scene of the bombing.
Channel Four news has clearly put its weight behind the information because it fits with everything else the suspects’ parents have said thus far. Both have claimed that their sons were framed, with the mother going into detail about how the FBI were regularly in contact with Tamerlan for three to five years.
The FBI was forced to admit that it had previously had contact with Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2011, but only after officials first denied the claims made by the mother. The change of story from the FBI came when the media, particularly RT (Russia Today), began to further investigate the matter.
It also emerged that Russian officials contacted the FBI last year regarding Tamerlan’s visit, asking the agency to investigate him when he was spotted with ‘a militant’ on trip to Dagestan.
