WaPo: Feds getting a lot more interested in Tsarnaev widow

posted at 5:01 pm on May 3, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Looks like the hubby may not have been the only Tsarnaev interested in radical Islamist reading material after all.    A search of Katherine Russell Tsarnaev’s computer turned up data from Inspire, the recruitment magazine published by al-Qaeda online, as well as other material that makes her more interesting than an average witness:

Federal law enforcement officials are sharpening their focus on the widow of the dead suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings after finding al-Qaeda’s Inspire magazine and other radical Islamist material on her computer, according to law enforcement officials.

The probe of the computer belonging to Katherine Russell, 24, the widow of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, is part of the effort by investigators to determine whether Russell knew anything about the April 15 bombing plot or helped the Tsarnaev brothers hide from authorities, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the ongoing investigation. …

According to officials, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev also told investigators that he and his brother built the bombs in Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s Cambridge apartment, where the elder brother lived with Russell and their daughter. Officials said that Russell called her husband when she saw his photograph on television — following the FBI’s release of the pictures of the suspects — but did not notify authorities.

One of the key questions for investigators is whether the radical Islamist materials on Russell’s computer belonged to her or were downloaded by her husband or someone else.

Earlier, we discovered that Russell Tsarnaev’s DNA and fingerprints didn’t match those found on bomb fragments.  However, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told investigators that the bombs were made in the apartment where Tamerlan and Katherine live, and Newsday reports that investigators have found residue in the apartment as well:

A bathtub and kitchen sink in the Cambridge apartment of deceased Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev tested positive for residue from explosives, corroborating his surviving brother Dzhokhar’s claims that the duo built bombs at the home, a federal law enforcement source said Friday.

The testing was performed by federal explosives experts and the results suggest bombs were either built in the bathroom and kitchen or stored there at some point, the source said.

In other words, the brothers didn’t build the bombs in the carport.  If they used the bathtub or kitchen sink, it’s a little difficult for the wife to claim ignorance of that effort, although with her work schedule, it’s very possible that she wasn’t around for the assembly itself.  Presumably, though, she would have been suspicious to find the two men scrubbing the sink and bathtub in her absence.

The same could also be said about the computer, too — that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar used it without her knowledge, and that she’s as surprised as anyone to find al-Qaeda propaganda on it.  Dzhokhar got rid of his own laptop, though, and and if Tamerlan was looking to evade suspicion, he probably would have done the same with his own computer.  Perhaps the FBI will be able to determine who used the computer at the time the material was accessed, perhaps not, but their sudden “focus” is hardly surprising.  Many wondered how a young wife with a small child could have her husband go on walkabout for six months and take it in stride, too.

Police and the FBI spent the day scouring the woods, apparently looking for the Tsarnaev’s testing grounds for their bomb designs:

Information about the residue came to light as federal, state and local authorities launched a massive search effort in a wooded area and other locations near the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth campus for evidence related to the Boston Marathon bombings case, according to the source.

Authorities were scouring the woods after receiving information that evidence linked to the case may have been left there, the source said.

The searches were confirmed by the Massachusetts U.S. attorney’s office.

Federal agents have received information that students heard explosions in the wooded area about a month ago, sparking concerns among investigators that the area may have been used as a testing grounds for the pressure cooker bombs that killed three people and injured more than 260 at the Boston Marathon.

This is another nagging question, one related to Tamerlan’s travels.  Budding bombmakers require lots of practice, and if he wasn’t getting that in Boston, then the assumption could be made that he got it in Dagestan.

She told her husband and brother-in-law to get out of town after seeing their photographs on television and didn’t call authorities.

Maybe she didn’t commit a crime, but she definitely deserves to be looked at closely and investigated for aiding and abetting.

As for sympathies and loyalties, we know where those laid with her…and they were not a) the victims and b) her country. While wives cannot be compelled to testify against their husbands in most jurisdictions, they do not have a privilege to aid criminal spouses in their escape or even to pass along information that might help them evade capture.

She spoke to her husband before MIT police officer, Sean Collier, was murdered and his partner gravely wounded.

Any model shop has Estes hobby rocket fuses that when hooked to a battery or remote speed control will light white-hot and are pretty darn reliable.

The only thing they would have to have tested is the range and how to locate the antenna so signal range could be determined with the metal pressure cooker. Probably just ran the wire out hole in the top of the pressure cooker.

Even if she didn’t know about the bombings beforehand, but only helped him to evade capture, then she could face numerous charges, including, theoretically, accessory counts of murder and attempted murder for the two MIT police officers.

If she had called authorities after seeing the photos on television, then they may have been able to prevent the murder of Collier and attempted murder of his partner. They could have tracked the brothers’ cellphones, put out an APB with the brothers’ info, etc. Recall, at this time, the authorities did not know who the guys were. She did…and did nothing.

At this point, my benefit of the doubt reservoir is tapped out. I guess that is what happens when the MSM continuously jumps to blame some white, angry, Christian, dude; the government claims that the system worked, it is a lone wolf, knockoff and a youtube video is responsible depending on where the incident happens; and the MSM and the government, then, seek to downplay the Islamist angle while pushing ‘hey, maybe it was the head injuries from boxing!’ and ‘He was just another guy on the soccer field. If only he had gone to the Islamic Society of Boston mosque more than he already – frequently – did, he could have been moderated!’

Yes, in the legal system, there exists a presumption of innocent, but when are not in the legal system and investigators have much more flexibility than prosecutors.

I have read that she was a home health care aide.

It is not unusual for home health care aides to be paid for a 24 hour shift if they stay overnight with an elderly or sick client.

If she worked 24 hour shifts, she could accomplish the 70-80 hour work weeks we have read about in 3 to 3 1/2 days.

3 24-hour shifts = 72 hours.

A 3 day window might give the brothers Tsarnaev enough time to build their bombs while she was at work.

But the she was working so many hours that she was too exhausted to notice the bomb ingredients in her home excuse, doesn’t fly.

Not one of the Muslim community in Boston identified the brothers when their photo was made public.

It appears he didn’t disagree with the older brother, but found his tactics self-defeating. Islam is anti-American, and indeed, inhuman.

– which has truth in it. It’s funny how you can see things in the eye. I wouldn’t say they are lifeless, though. I just don’t think I’d leave her alone with my cat after argument. With her, not my cat — my cat and I rarely argue.

And also the fact that that chick can apparently look in two directions at once, which would only be hot if you were into it.

And if they didn’t have a good explanation, why didn’t she contact the police and tell them her husband is acting suspicious?

Because she’s a dutiful and obedient muslim wife and is not permitted to ask questions of her hubby, his relatives and friends, question anything they do, nor rat them out. She’s compliant through willing indoctrination to this cult.

Young Katherine might have been afraid to call the police about her husband.

But did anybody else in her family (like her parents, for instance)think to call the police when they saw Tamerlan’s picture on TV?

There are lots of people who should have made that call, in addition to Katherine.

The same way an unemplyed low intelligence young male affords an Ivy League ” education” , a lavish lifestyle and trips to Pakistan .

Now wait a minute! non partisan went to Pakistan? When?

katy the mean old lady on May 3, 2013 at 6:04 PM

Non partisan went to pick up his mail order bride. And yes, they explained the bride is a goat.

RovesChins on May 3, 2013 at 6:34 PM

I don’t know. I’m sure I would aid my wife’s escape from justice. But then, I don’t plan to marry a mass murderer.

*fingers crossed*

Budding bombmakers require lots of practice, and if he wasn’t getting that in Boston, then the assumption could be made that he got it in Dagestan.

Why Dagestan ? Ayers and Dohrn live right here in USA ;-)

burrata on May 3, 2013 at 5:43 PM

Yeah. Ask their friends Diana Oughton and Ted Gold how low-practice bomb-building worked out for them…

I can’t believe that Ed was so insensitive and cruel as to show her in a picture without her hijab and burka. He has offended jihadis everywhere, and I’m sure CAIR will be looking into this.

K-K-K-Katy

K-K-K-Kaboom!

Her eyes are too far apart.

She’s from another planet.

portlandon on May 3, 2013 at 7:15 PM

They’ll let her mingle about while they collect more dots.

It’s a sign of a decaying country when one of it’s priveledged daughters converts to Islam.

renalin on May 3, 2013 at 7:32 PM

She is a creepy looking zombie. Don’t stare at her mug too long or you will be jinxed for two weeks.

Speed bump was an Islamitard wife beater who followed in the stink steps of Muhammed.

Islam has taken the place of Fonzie, Han Solo, beatniks, etc. for young women who need a scoundrel in their lives.

Wonder if she shaves?

She looks just like Ashley Judd.

I believe the booking photo was from when she was 18 and got popped for shoplifting.

Blake on May 3, 2013 at 7:54 PM

Bingo !
She is being made out to be that ” all American girl” who is so totally working and taking care of her kid that she has no clue about her charlatan chechen dead husband.
It would ruin the narrative if the hijab keeps making an appearance.
