Do each of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and the US government have things they want to conceal during the trial? Does Tsarnaev want to conceal the involvement of others? A wider plots? Follow on targets? The role of Russia? Protect his family in Russia from reprisals from FSB, Chechens or Moslem radicals?
Does US government want to coverup that NSA was monitoring Chechens and Harvard and MIT professors prior to the Boston Bombing and after Berezovsky’s death?
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev seems determined to take credit for the Boston Bombing.
Tsarnaev shows a pattern from the note scrawled in the boat, to the confession to the FBI in hospital to the motion to exclude conspiracy theory types from the courthouse area to take credit for the bombing.
Reasons Tsarnaev may want to take credit.
- He is a dedicated jihadi who hates White Christian America and wants to kill as many of us as he can. He wants to say that and take credit with other jihadis.
- There are others involved he wants to protect.
- Others did things Tsarnaev wants to take credit for now with the jihadi public to bolster his memory as a jihadi.
- He wants to inspire others.
- There are people back in Russia he wants to protect from reprisals if he admits information he knows. This could be of a wider conspiracy or a role by Russia or Moslem groups in Russia.
Does Tsarnaev want to coverup some of the same things the US government wants to coverup? Were they going to target the professors at Harvard and MIT? Or just anyone at Harvard and MIT? Was that a motive in shooting the MIT officer?
Did Tsarnaev know that Russian FSB, SVR had a role in planning the bombing? Did Russian FSB use a front group of Moslems, but the Tsarnaevs knew that? Or were told it by someone?
