article imageBoston marathon bomber says he and brother 'self-radicalized'

By Marcus Hondro     Apr 23, 2013 in Crime
Boston - Reports coming from the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston where surviving Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is being questioned indicate he has admitted he and his deceased brother Tamerlan did the bombing.
His claim is they acted alone. Multiple news organizations, including the Washington Post, are reporting that sources close to the interviews are revealing that Tsarnaev told investigators he and his brother were "self-radicalized" and not acting with any group or other individuals. He said they did it largely as a protest to America's warring in Afghanistan and Iraq and indicated their reading of jihadist literature, largely online, contributed to their decision to kill.
Tsarnaev, whose condition was upgraded from 'serious' to 'fair' today, Tuesday, is still unable to talk due to the neck injuries he suffered either on the night his brother died or the following night when he was captured, or both. He is responding to questions by writing down his answers.
The 19-year-old was charged in the hospital on Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction and malicious destruction of property. Should he be convicted he could receive the death penalty. All these proceedings, Tsarnaev being charged and responding to questions from the FBI and other law enforcement, are taking place while he is in his hospital bed.
