“(CBS News) Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev left a note claiming responsibility for the April 13 attack on the Boston Marathon, reports CBS News senior correspondent John Miller . . . It reads as part manifesto, part suicide note, and part justification for the killing and maiming of innocent civilians.
The note — scrawled with a marker on the interior wall of the cabin — said the bombings were retribution for U.S. military action in Afghanistan and Iraq, and called the Boston victims “collateral damage” in the same way Muslims have been in the American-led wars. “When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims,” Tsarnaev wrote.
Dzhokar said he didn’t mourn older brother Tamerlan, the other suspect in the bombings, writing that by that point, Tamerlan was a martyr in paradise — and that he expected to join him there soon.”
From Dr. Qanta Ahmed:
“Pundits continue to agonize over the Boston bombers’ motive, yet no pursuit could be more futile. For jihadists, it’s not the motive, it’s the narrative.
From Chechnya or Chattanooga, the forces driving Islamists toward violent infamy remain the same. The narrative that has seduced them the world over is the idea of reclaiminga mythic Golden Age of Islam, a “glory” that can be “restored” onlythrough violent jihad. Both their “Islam” and the narrative are utterly fictional, yet the consequences of their make-believe are diabolically real.
Jihadist ideology provides the Islamist recruit his sole raison d’etre, the pursuit of violence. Whether disaffected boys struggling to fit in (the Boston bombers), or wealthy men breaking loose (Osama bin Laden), it is the all-encompassing jihadist role that so captivates them.”
Hmmm. We thought it was the Administration’s position that the Boston Bomber’s trip to Russia/Chechnya was not a training trip? AP story indicates otherwise:
“U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said after a meeting with his Belgian counterpart, Didier Reynders, that `’we just had a young person who went to Russia and Chechnya who blew people up in Boston. So he didn’t stay where he went, but he learned something where he went and he came back with a willingness to kill people.”
No matter how many hundreds of Islamic Jihadi attacks against the Western “infidels” occur, no matter how many times the Islamic jihadis state their reasons, there will be those like Boston Police Commissioner Davis who says his biggest question for the younger Tsarnaev is “why?” Buy a clue Commissioner. Islamic Jihadis demand conversion, submission or death for infidels, including women and children.
Ever predictable Chris Matthews summons his inner Hillary in whining to FBI profiler regarding Boston bombers, “What difference does it make why they did it.” Of course Matthews was keenly interested in motive when he suspected a right wing terror plot. This echoes Hillary’s screeching “what difference . . . does it make” why terrorists killed our Ambassador in Benghazi, after Hillary’s lie about the anti-Muslim video was exposed.
