    "The dfistance the kid was behind his brother, just tells you how reluctant he was of being there. He even ran over his brother because of how scared he really was. That is not a the way a terrorist normally behaves."

    Dzhokhar Tsarnaev may not be a US citizen if he was plotting this attack prior to taking his oath and lied under oath.

    Thank God, The News Medias are beginning to start to ask some questions. I have to presume my last post here on Saturday afternoon got the ball rolling, the muddied waters are slowly clearing. There are still many unanswered and unasked questions that really need to be looked at, like during the shoot out (that lasted 10 minutes as reported) was there no video recorded by the police cars and during the chase was not other law enforcement contacted and how long does it take a helicopter to fly to Watertown from Boston,when they are already on a high state of alert. Another Question is what were the terrorists doing at MITT, is it possible they were picking up more bombs there ? Now when they car jacked the Mercedes SUV, did the Terrorists have to stop somewhere to load it with bombs and guns, or were they carrying the bombs and guns on their persons. There are plenty of loose ends here and I see very good chance that somebody else was building the bombs and the terrorist brothers delivered. I may be wrong on this but I'd play it better safe than sorry. If someone else did build the bombs we cannot afford to let them continue. Now I did watch Wolf interview some Police Chief and not much was said about the guns used other than they had a long arm as well as pistols. The use a long arm , is not a very forth coming answer and what harm is it to identify the weapons used. A long arm, Wolf should have asked would that mean an assault rifle, a 22, a shotgun or a possibly muzzle loader, what exactly kind of long arm are we looking at here. We are looking for the facts and it is supposed to be a Free Press, that is researching the facts. We have to examine the facts to improve future response and insure we get the bad guys. Say for example the Brother Terrorists, did not build the bombs and that bomb builder, had several teams like the brothers, in his service ? Well it's best to cover all the bases, isn't it. Keep asking those questions Wolf, it's your job.

    Hey, What happened to the North Korean CRISIS?!!
    I guess we forgot all about that CRISIS cause another CRISIS came along to displace the first CRISIS
    Unless there was no CRISIS in the first place? Well, I guess that's life in the "SITUATION ROOM". Hype, hype, hype.

    Blitzes interview with police chief is the most unprofessional work I have seen on televising. He was so obviously caught up in the moment that he constantly interrupted the chief. He even went so far as to answer his own questions. Please pay off his contract and get him off the air. Absolutely an amateur when it comes to conducting an interview.

    The interview Wolf Blitzer conducted with the Watertown Chief was the worst interview I've ever seen. He kept interrupting the Chief and giving his own narrative. Wolf should just shut the hell up and let the Chief tell the story.
