THE father of a man shot to death by authorities in Florida while being questioned during the Boston Marathon bombing investigation has written President Barack Obama asking for help finding out what happened.
Abdulbaki Todashev says in his letter that son Ibragim Todashev, 27, knew dead marathon suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev through boxing but had no connection to the bombing or any other crime. He says his son voluntarily went to an FBI office in Orlando to speak with FBI agents four times before they showed up at his apartment May 22.
Attorney Barry Cohen said Monday the elder Todashev fears a cover-up and is writing to Obama one father to another to make sure that doesn't happen. He is asking Obama to ensure authorities do not interfere with the investigation

Abdul-Baki Todashev, the father of Ibragim Todashev, the Tamerlan Tsarnaev associate shot to death in his Orlando, Fla., apartment by a FBI agent in the company of two Massachusetts State Troopers in May, has released an open letter to President Obama calling for justice.

His letter includes photos of the bloodied Orlando apartment taken about a week and half after Ibragim was killed, images of his bullet-ridden body, and a photo of his knee following a surgery he had in March.

Federal prosecutors have officially stated the government’s contention that Todashev implicated Tamerlan Tsarnaev in a 2011 triple murder in Waltham. Anonymous FBI sources also told reporters that Todashev implicated himself in those murders, along with conflicting reports about how Todashev died.

In the letter, Abdul-Baki Todashev accuses FBI agents of deliberately killing and torturing his son (citing bruise marks near his left eye) and threatening and deporting his son’s acquaintances. Todashev asks the president to ensure that the FBI does not interfere with the independent investigation into his son’s death.

Earlier this year, Todashev’s live-in girlfriend, Tatiana Gruzdeva, was arrested and deported to Moscow. ICE officials told her she was deported for giving Boston magazine an interview. At the time of the interview, she was granted deferred action by ICE. It is unclear what the terms of her deferred action were. Ashurmamad Miraliev, a friend of Todashev, was denied repeated requests to an attorney during a six-hour interrogation with the FBI after his arrest according to the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

Abdul-Baki Todashev states in the letter:

“Did my son know that he had the right to remain silent or did he have rights at all, including the right to live? Being a citizen of another country he might not be aware of the laws as he was only 27 years old and wanted to live so much. No, they left no chances for him inflicting 13 gunshot wounds and multiple hematomas on his body. After what FBI agents have done to him whatever excuses they come up with nobody would believe them because my son is dead and cannot talk for himself. They did it deliberately so that he can never speak and never take part in court hearings. They put pressure on my son’s friends to prevent them from coming to the court and speaking the truth.

I rely on you, Mr. President, and hope that the prosecutor’s office and the court do not let the agencies conducting internal investigation on this case prevent the truth from coming to light so that at least some part of our grief, caused by the murder of our son, is relieved, and that the murderers stand trial instead of sit in their desk chairs.”

Ain't gonna happen, sorry. lol. I think it's funny how the majority is non-existent in this thread; I'm with the father in that I believe that there was black op involvement in the Boston Bombings... c'mon, he was a kid, the pressure of such an ordeal is unrealized by the masses, and of which fewer can even control. I'd like to state here, as it has a been a while since my last post and may be my last for a while, considering the mood: Fellow preppers, prep more; casual onlookers, start; and deniers listen. The great economic collapse is not an overnight meltdown, it is a gradual exponential event that is upon us now. I'm just thankful that my assets are not tied up in the market.

Unfortunately, if he is relying on Obama for honesty and integrity "one father to another" he's barking up the wrong tree. If he examined any of Obama's history, he would see that Obama is a liar and not even a good one.

That whole Boston Marathon bombing official story was weird along with the training exercise going on at the same time. I doubt the poor guy will get any truth, there's too much it seems that has to be hidden in order for the government to continue playing slight-of-hand with the general population (a term used in prisons). It's all about agenda and CYA.

Cheers - Dave

This guys wife with her mom.

Her mom was fired from the military over this. She tried to sue for benefits of some kind. But the strange thing is this which was posted to the wife's VK page.

That is where Russia keeps have terrorist attacks including the most recent one.Hell what about this one from a couple months ago.

They Mysteriously found a ID to a woman from Dagestan who did the bus bombing. Kind of like that 9/11 passport or ID found from a hijacker at the Twin Towers. And how about that apartment this all went down in belonging to a Russian guy who was tied to Russian Intelligence? Seemed a strange place for the FBI and him to meet at? It was later said to be some else apartment. Every thing about this is complete BS. Russia was involved with the FBI and the rest of the law enforcement there. But why hide that a Russian Intelligence officer was there?
