BOSTON (Reuters) – A jury on Wednesday found Dzokhar Tsarnaev guilty of killing three people and injuring 264 in the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, as well as fatally shooting a police officer four days later.
You have heard the words. You know the narrative. Let’s not rush to judgment. These were lone wolves. They were self-radicalized. The system worked. The dots were connected. Osama Bin Laden is dead; GM is alive. Al Qaeda is a shadow of its former self. It is time for nation building at home.
The Boston Marathon bombers planned to detonate what remained of their bombs in Times Square, the living suspect has told investigators.
An al Qaeda magazine containing bomb-making instructions helped the Boston Marathon bombers construct the deadly explosive devices that killed three people and wounded more than 260, according to a U.S. official close to the ongoing investigation.
Suspected Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told investigators that he and his brother learned how to make a pressure cooker bomb from the al Qaeda magazine Inspire.
