Randi Rhodes: What Happened?

 Apr 24, 2013
It’s being reported that the Russians alerted the US “multiple” times about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. That would definitely arouse suspicions—but it’s not clear if the suspicions should be about Tsarnaev... or about the Russians. If the Russians want you to know something, you have to wonder why. And if they really want you to know something, you really have to wonder why.

They still seem to think that the brothers learned how to make the bombs on the internet. I’ll say this—if you learn how to do anything on the internet, chances are it will eventually blow up for you. Do you know how hard it is to accomplish anything complicated with advice from the internet? It’s easier to get something done with advice from one of those Magic 8-Balls. You can’t go wrong with “Reply hazy try again.”
The mother of the Tsarnaev brothers is named Zubeidat Tsarnaev. Every name in this whole saga looks like somebody dropped a bunch of Scrabble tiles. She urged Tamerlan to embrace Islam after she became worried about his drinking, smoking, and womanizing. He might have been better off with the booze and women. Face it, Charlie Sheen has been in a lot of trouble, but nothing like the trouble that Tamerlan Tsarnaev created for himself. And most importantly, the damage that Charlie Sheen caused has been limited to hotel rooms and his own liver.

The mother said of her surviving son “If they are going to kill him. I don’t care. My oldest son is killed, so I don’t care. I don’t care if my youngest son is going to be killed today.” Anybody who ever called their own mother the worst mother in the world owes her an apology. To be fair, the woman is distraught. But you get the feeling that she is constantly distraught. Mom added “I want the world to hear this. And, I don’t care if I am going to get killed too.” Well then, you’re in the right place, living in Dagestan.

The story of the Boston bombers is almost completely crazy. Wait a minute, Alex Jones is involved. It is now officially completely crazy. Alex Jones didn’t need to inject himself into this story. It came with him already in it, like a mouse head in a can of soup. Tamerlan was evidently a listener of Alex Jones. We still don’t know what made him a fanatical Muslim, but we know what made him crazy.
