One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.
The programme discovered that Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed articles which argued that both 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were government conspiracies.
Another in his possession was about "the rape of our gun rights".
There was also material discussing the plight of prisoners still trapped in Guantanamo Bay and on US drone activity.
One friend, who asked to remain anonymous for fear of being associated with terrorism, said Tamerlan "just didn't like America". “He felt like America was just basically attacking all Middle Eastern countries…you know trying to take their oil,” he said.
Any dissent becomes political kookiness if they just slap the right/left wing label on it. Here? It's SO far out of place, it's pathetic to think they expect us to buy it!
Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to publications espousing white supremacy and government conspiracy theories.
Until now the Tsarnaev brothers were widely perceived as just self-styled radical jihadists.
...reasonably speculate based on this that they or one of them did visit ATS and may have even had an account.
This is all political theater taken to the ultimate extremes.....
Tamerlan Tsarnaev possessed articles which argued that both 9/11 and the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing were government conspiracies.
had literature which explored what motivated mass killings and noted how the perpetrators murdered and maimed calmly.
There was also material about US drones killing civilians, and about the plight of those still imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay.
So what? I've read things about 9/11, in fact I have a book (albeit it one) about the subject, which argues that there may be more to it than the official story says.
I just don't put stock in judging a man by what he reads.
Mein Kampf is one of the better selling books in history, as well.... Is that because so large a % across the world adore the man who wrote it? ...or seek to understand what led to history's records of what happened there? It isn't anyone's place to judge on reading that alone, IMO.
