March 30, 2015

We seem to have learned very little from the prosecution case in the Boston Marathon Bombing trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.  Some thing we the public outside the courtroom still don’t know.  (Recall we don’t have the trial transcript.)

  1. What color were the back packs used in the attack?
  2. Were they the same as the video of the Tsarnaev backpacks?
  3. Who made the bombs?
  4. Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev a CIA agent?
