Dzhokhar's Confession

—Mustang Sends

According to CBS News this morning, Boston police found a note scribbled out by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as he lay bleeding from multiple gunshot wounds inside someone’s boat. It wasn’t something a fifth grade student would want to turn in for a graded assignment, but it was interesting nonetheless.

Essentially, Dzhokhar told us:

1. He does not mourn the loss of his brother, Tamerlane. Tamerlane, you see, is a martyr who has entered paradise. And besides, Dzhokhar expects to see him again soon.

2. The bombs were placed in retribution for the United States’ crimes against Moslems in Iraq and Afghanistan.

3. The victims of the bombs were simply collateral damage, in the same way that Moslems are collateral damage in America’s wars throughout the world.

4. Whenever America attacks one Moslem, America attacks Moslems everywhere.

Interestingly, Dzhokhar never mentioned the 72 virgins allocated to him or his older brother. Presumably, this is because sex is one of the last things people think about when they are lying in the bottom of a boat with multiple gunshot wounds. Right about now, Dzhokhar must be thinking that life is unfair: while his brother cavorts with his 72 virgins, Dzhokhar is under the close scrutiny of infidels and has multiple needles shoved up his … posterior.

Dzhokhar also failed to mention that the only reason Tamerlane is dead is because Dzhokhar ran over him while attempting to further elude every police officer in the state of Massachusetts. One can’t help but wonder how pleased Tamerlane will be to see his younger brother in the next life.

Another curiosity is Dzhokhar’s apparent adaptation of this Hispanic adage: “If you fight the bean, you have to fight the burrito.” Is it completely lost on Dzhokhar that Moslems should, at all cost, avoid attacking our buildings with stolen airliners?

Perhaps Z’s readers will be able to help us with these two remaining items. The media continues to emphasize their contention that Tamerlane and Dzhokhar are self-radicalized Moslems. Does anyone really understand what that means, or what the process entails? For example, does one become a radicalized (fill in the blank) from watching too much Chris Matthews, or receiving too many post-election tweets from Barack Obama?

And then finally … even though Dzhokhar wrote out his statement on the inside of the backyard boat, crime scene investigators aren’t sure whether the writing is a confession to pre-medicated murder, a Moslem manifesto, or an application for Obama Care. It leads us to ask, (1) will prosecutors have to introduce that boat as evidence during trial, (2) will this boat one day sell on EBay for millions, and (3) does this mean that Dzhokhar can keep his doctor?

So Dzhokhar wrote: "When you attack one Muslim, you attack all Muslims."
What a shocker!
What do you call it when the Muslims the Syrian government killed 80,000 of their own citizens? These are Muslims killing other Muslims! Where were their outrage over acts like that? And why are Chechen Muslims killing Boston marathon runners? Whet did they do to you or your countrymen?

My Conservative Thoughts said...

The corrupt, terrorist-enabling democrats are hell-bent on protecting and whitewashing the image of the Muslims: " no, no, it's not a religion of fanatics and blood-thirsty terrorists. They're just a “peace-loving” bunch of guys--it's the Tea party gang you have to watch out for, these are the real terrorist’s!" wake up and get your heads out of your ass’s. the democrats, and the progressives are more concerned about being apologists for the Muslims than they are about the safety of us Americans--and this coverup, once again, proves it and uncovers their agenda. What about our American right to know? What about all those lies that Mr. "transparency" has been telling us for years! Unless you want more blood to flow in the streets of our cities; unless you want more of our events to be bombed in our cities, unless you want more body parts to be ripped savagely from the bodies of innocent children, mothers and fathers, vote all these Obama loving democrat enabler’s out! A vote in 2016 for any Democrat is a vote to continue the madness and the slaughter and the coverups.

Z - I'm just glad that younger brother was captured alive. I hope he comes to trial and is found guilty of the terrible crime he and his brother committed.

FreeThinke said...

Sue, WHY would you -- or any other presumably SANE person -- want anyone of THAT ilk to be "captured alive?"

These people are FILTH. Either they must be FORCIBLY EJECTED en masse from OUR society, or they must be KILLED.

This is STILL a predominantly CHRISTIAN country -- the efforts of B. HUSSEIN Obama notwithstanding.

Unless you are the type of Christian fanatic who believes that suffering MARTYRDOM is the only way you could be considered a "TRUE" Christian, why would you want SWORN ENEMIES of the FAITH to have ANY say WHATSOEVER in determining public policy in THIS country?

Muslims DO NOT BELONG in the WEST. PERIOD!

Always On Watch said...

As I said to the crosspost at A Montpelier View:

A bit of Islamic trivia: the body of a mujhadeen (holy warrior) should be neither embalmed nor washed; otherwise, entry into Paradise could be in jeopardy (“could be” because Allah’s rules are subject to change, depending which portion of the rules you might be reading). So, I deduce that Tamerlane Tsarnaev, buried here in the state of Virginia (Spit!), didn’t get his 72 virgins after all.

Louis H. said...

According to a DHS memoranda issued in 2011, the Department of Homeland Security is to protect the free speech rights of pro-Sharia adherents, while at the same time warning enforcement personnel about American conservatives, such as those who claim adherence to the U. S. Constitution and champion such causes as “a right to life.”

The DHS has signaled to US law enforcement agencies that it is the official Obama policy to consider legitimate any Islamic criticism of the American system of government. —Daily Caller

conservativesonfire said...

(2) will this boat one day sell on EBay for millions

Of that, I have no doubt.

Mustang said...

@Louis

I hope you aren't suggesting that President Obama is a Moslem. Otherwise, the IRS may audit you.

Don't thank me, it is a service regularly provided to Conservative or Tea Party commenters at Geeez.

Impertinent said...

"The Homeland Security document also seems to discount evidence unearthed by the Justice Department about the aims of some mainstream Muslim organizations, warning law enforcement not to rely on “unsubstantiated theories” and “conspiracies,” such as the belief that “many mainstream Muslim organizations have terrorist ties” or are “fronts for Islamic political organizations whose true desire is to establish Sharia law in America.”


We are in deep trouble when we're considered an enemy of the government.

Big sis...and the DHS need to go. She's either mentally unbalanced or truly dangerous. We already know Holder is...and now Obutthead / Clinton are co conspirators in a murder coverup...so not to offend the muslim scum.

But we KNOW "why" they did it, Sue. They're MUSLIMS.

Get rid of ALL the Muslims, and we will get rid of The Problem -- not ALL problems, just THAT one.

If just ONE rotten apple soils a whole barrel full of apples, just THINK what approximately TWO-HUNDRED-FIFTY-MILLION rotten Muslims can do the the more than ONE BILLION that infest the globe with their evil beliefs.

Get them OUT of the USA and KEEP them OUT.

I do NOT favor EXTERMINATON, only Mass DEPORTATION.

Z said...

FT: How do you see MASS DEPORTATION WORK?
I'm not arguing with you, necessarily, just literally curious as to if you think that could work.


ALL: Re "collateral damage"..that always gets to me because WE Americans are all about trying to cut down on collateral damage or, heck, our media will expose us and the left hates America again for it.
When our enemy's whole goal IS collateral damage of "the more Americans dead or maimed, the better"

How do we survive that mentality...on both sides?

Jack Whyte said...

Sue, if there was any interest in finding out if others were involved, then your black Attorney General would have allowed the questioning of Dzhokhar to continue. He didn’t. But I’m curious. Do you not understand what is going on in the world today with Islamic orthodoxy? Do you actually think this is simply an unusual event, not representative of the Islamic faith?

And did you not read what Louis said, above?

Z said...

Jack! I hadn't noticed that line about Obama legitimizing any Islamic criticism of US..what the HELL? (Sorry. ..but what the..???)
yet any criticism of Islam is politically incorrect?

ARE WE CRAZY?


Also/ I thought I mentioned this somewhere at geeez and can't find it now:

Mustang mentioned that the leftwing's often writing about Islamic "self radicalization"...

and he asked what that means.

My definition is "Self radicalization of islamists means becoming a killer and making sure everybody realizes it was a personal decision and no imam in any mosque EVER suggested that!" :-)

Agreed?

Impertinent said...

@FT:

"Get rid of ALL the Muslims, and we will get rid of The Problem.."


Damn right. One step is to start shutting down the terror training centers ( mosques ) and the madrassas. Teaching sedition and treason needs to be criminally prosecuted.

Just WTF is wrong with us anyway?

Mustang said...

@ Z

I agree that's what the media and government mean when they use the term "self-radicalized" extremist, but I'm not buying it.

And neither do I agree that Islamic extremism is the exception to the rule. One only needs to read the Koran to see how extremism is THE standard in Islamic life.

Always On Watch said...

Z,
Obama legitimizing any Islamic criticism of US..what the HELL? (Sorry. ..but what the..???)

Our so-called political leaders are not crazy. Rather, they are furthering a particular agenda that does not have as its purpose the interests or the ideals of the United States.

Mustang said...

@ FT

I don't think it is possible to "get rid" of all Moslems. If you tried to deport these people, where would John Brennan go to live? Or Glover Norquist? Or Ducky?

Nor can government "spy" on Moslem activities in mosques and private schools. They can only spy on Christians, and even then, only on protestants.

Tamerlane Tsarnaev's body should have been fed to the sharks right out in the waters of Cape Cod. Any remaining bones could have been given to Jeff Dunham to make another "Dead Terrorist" puppet for us all to laugh at.

Constitutional Insurgent said...

Much of the self radicalization that exists comes about through an oppression-identity complex; sort of a third world perversion of a 'no true Scotsman' meme.

Many Muslims self inculcate oppression themes in order to achieve a sense of purpose that assimilation does not yield. Muslims aren't alone in this, nor is self radicalization anywhere near a primary avenue towards extremism, but it is a component of the movement.

Having a religious tome that is contradictory doesn't help matters either.

Z said...

CI... by "tome", you mean the Koran..and it being contradictory to Western Civilization?

How does one self-radicalize in your opinion?

Mustang: GROVER NORQUIST??
and you're right about
The joke is that self-radicalization doesn't make sense; they hear it on the street, they hear it in the mosques (which, as you say, our feds can't even listen in on because they'll throw them out)(and yes, Christians are spied on by a woman who's called into Talk Radio and warned she's out there, making sure tax-exempt churches aren't mentioning anything REPUBLICAN).(trust me on that).
It's one of the few times I've ever called in...it was on Medved's show and he loved it when I said "So we can't go into mosques, but YOU are going into churches and turning in anything you think borders on politics..?"
grrrr


Avg American, I'll try to drop by later; you made me curious!



Constitutional Insurgent said...

Z - Yes, by tome, I am referring to the Koran. Not it's contradiction to western civiliazation, but it's internal contradictions. For every passage that extremists use to justify violence against infidels...there an equal number that state the opposite.

Self radicaliztion never comes about without any external influencers, but is largely driven by social and ethnic inadequacies within.

Bob said...

Darn. I thought the guy that owned the boat was going to get it repaired. If this thing winds up as suggested, he can sell it on ebay and get a newer, better one.

He could name the new one, "Paradise Lost" in honor of the terrorist who scribbled graffiti on his boat.

FreeThinke said...

Z, all I can say about the practicability of expelling this profoundly undesirable element from OUR country is this:

WHERE THERE'S A WILL, THERE'S A WAY


If this were 1940, instead of 2013, it would have been DONE within a very few DAYS after the Twin Towers fell and the Pentagon was bombed.


We've not only been severely "dumbed down" in the past fifty years, we've ALSO been intellectually, morally and spiritually CASTRATED. That's what PC really stands for Political Castration.

I doubt if anyone younger than SIXTY-EIGHT or SEVENTY could fully realize the extent of what the ENEMEDIA has done to "us."

"We" have been systematically CONDITIONED to believe that "WE" are the only group that DESERVES to be HATED and FEARED.

To think otherwise is "racist."

FreeThinke said...

Bob, at the rate things are going, that boat may very well wind up in The SMITHSONIAN along with the original Star-Spangled banner, The Spirit of St. Louis and other uniquely American cultural artifacts. ;-)

I'll bet it would attract a HUGE following

If we don't outlaw and expel Islam pretty soon, we might soon a Terrorist's Museum on the Mall built right across from The Holocaust Museum.

Or maybe they could combine the two and call it The TERRORCAUST Museum?

Now THERE's a bright idea!

It is only a matter of time before a group of those nitwits training in the woods in Northern Virginia walk into a shopping mall and start spraying the place with automatic weapons, screaming “Allah Akbar.” And then, of course, we’ll have to listen to the Democrats piss and moan ad nauseam about the Second Amendment.

It never dawns on them that it isn’t about the Second Amendment, it’s about that decadence called Islam.

Well done as usual. My problem is that we can't keep track of what these people believe because I'm convinced they don't know. You can hide behind religion forever, but eventually you need to have a set of moral beliefs to go by. When you slaughter innocents as a matter of course you have a bankruptcy of moral beliefs.

In My Defense said...

So rhe IRS officials have so generously admitted that "We made mistakes, but without malice", well isn’t that big of them?
But what this has proven to us is that Obama is a very inept and incompetent president and that he has put so many incompetent people into do many important positions such as Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice. John Kerry, Eric Holder, and so many others.
Also in the aftermath it is very clear is that someone is hiding something from the American people and this is the president’s model of providing the most transparent presidency in U.S. history.

Now the president, along with our military, has made bold moves all Americans can be proud of. The president and the Navy Seals captured and killed Osama bin Laden and they miraculously rescued Jessica Buchanan, an aid worker, from the clutches of bandits in the middle of the desert in Somalia. This is the kind of triumph of spirit and heart we can all be proud of. The deception that we find from the IRS, the State Department and the Department of Justice erodes the celebration of the American spirit.

The apparent cover-ups in these federal departments can topple this presidency. So I simply ask that our president and his administration leaders simply tell the truth. Americans are far more forgiving if they are not first lied to. And the bottom line is that our country is being run by not only a bunch of crooks and liars but idiots! This White House is totally corrupt and disgusting.

I'm Here To Tell You said...

Lets look at the video tape. (So to say)The cumulative effect of discovering lie upon lie is sure to dog this presidency for the duration of its term. Here is a short list of the building blocks that reveal the true heart of this administration:
The Obama administration is harassing conservative non-profit organizations. In February 2012, several conservative groups complained on FoxNews that they were being targeted by the IRS. This sparked letters and complaints from various senators and representatives to the IRS. In response, in March 2012, IRS Commissioner Douglas Schulman told Congress that the IRS was not targeting groups based on their political views.
Later on May 10, 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the tax-exempt department for the IRS, admitted that the IRS did in fact inappropriately target 501(c)(4) organizations for additional review that included the names “tea party” and/or “patriot” in their applications during the 2012 Presidential Election. She issued a swift apology blaming low-level staffers in Cincinnati not motivated by politics.
Unfortunately, soon after Lerner’s apology, the Associated Press uncovered a report that contradicts Schulman and Lerner and shows that senior IRS officials knew agents were targeting tea party groups as early as 2011.
This is a massive abuse of governmental authority under this administration.
The Obama administration lied to the public about the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. On September 11, 2012, just before the presidential election, the US Consulate was attacked and four Americans, including the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, were murdered.
Instead of telling the obvious truth, UN Ambassador Susan Rice lied and told the world that the attacks were a spontaneous reaction to the release of a YouTube video and not a planned attack by terrorists.
The world knew differently and now the truth is being heaped on the head of the Obama administration like hot coals. As reported by Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, we now know that the CIA report was altered twelve times to shade the truth of the attack removing references to the Ansar al Sharia Brigade responsible for the attack, or terrorism. Recall Obama’s campaign slogan for his 2012 re-election bid: “General Motors is Alive; Bin Laden is Dead.” Admitting that terrorism was still on the move did not fit into the re-election campaign narrative and so the administration, the president included, lied for months after the attack. The truth is still not in them.
On Capitol Hill May 8, 2013, Gregory Hicks, Deputy Ambassador to Libya, testified on Benghazi and said, “my jaw dropped. I was embarrassed” when Obama appointee and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice lied on national television that the attack was the result of a spontaneous rally protesting a YouTube video. Hicks and his staff knew otherwise, reported the Detroit News. Despite the unraveling of the truth, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the target of the US administration and the maker of the YouTube video “Innocence of Muslims,” is still in jail today under the pretext that he violated his probation for bank fraud.
The cover-up continues. Stevens died; Obama, Hillary & Rice lied.

I'm Here To Tell You said...

Finally, Operation Fast and Furious is not going away. In this gun trafficking scandal, it is now undeniable that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives ( under the supervision of the Department of Justice, intentionally allowed the sale of U.S. manufactured semiautomatic weapons to straw buyers for the Mexican cartel and then refused to confiscate the weapons in order to trace them to the hands of the Mexican cartel ringleaders. This is commonly referred to as “walking guns.”
The scandal broke on December 14, 2010 when US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was murdered by the Mexican cartel. The cartel left behind two semiautomatic weapons that were later traced to the guns sold 11 months earlier under Operation “Fast and Furious” in Arizona.
The ATF initially denied that it had such a policy of selling firearms. After more than a year of not providing sufficient answers on Operation “Fast and Furious,” Holder provided small details of the program after being forced by subpoenas and a Contempt of Congress charge. Holder ultimately testified that, “the use of this misguided tactic [walking guns] is inexcusable, and it must never happen again." A spokesman for the ATF also said, the "ATF did not exercise proper oversight, planning or judgment in executing this case. We at ATF have accepted responsibility and have taken appropriate and decisive action to insure that these errors in oversight and judgment never occur again." Criminal charges are likely to follow for those involved in this program.
On June 20, 2012, President Obama granted Attorney General Eric Holder’s request to assert executive privilege in regard to the request for documents pertaining to Operation “Fast and Furious” in order to prevent further responses to subpoenas from the Congress. Asserting this privilege implies the president’s direct involvement and awareness of the operation.
What is clear is that someone is hiding and or lying about something from the American people and this is the president’s model of providing the most transparent presidency in U.S. history.
Now the president, along with our military, has made bold moves all Americans can be proud of. The president and the Navy Seals captured and killed Osama bin Laden and they miraculously rescued Jessica Buchanan, an aid worker, from the clutches of bandits in the middle of the desert in Somalia. This is the kind of triumph of spirit and heart we can all be proud of. The deception that we find from the IRS, the State Department and the Department of Justice erodes the celebration of the American spirit.
The apparent cover-ups in these federal departments can topple this presidency. So I simply ask that our president and his administration leaders simply tell the truth. Americans are far more forgiving if they are not first lied to.

There isn't any evidence that there was any involvement by the White House or President Obama.

If the IRS was doing this--headed by a Bush appointee--those involved should be punished.
The fake Benghazi scandal is almost dead/dying and Always On Watch knows it... which is why he resorts to the "they all do it" false equivalency. That is the fall back position the Repubs retreat to when the know they've lost.
Hopefully the REAL scandal (GOP altering emails) will go somewhere and the Republicans will pay a price. I'm with Ducky in believing the Dems should counter attack.
Now that it is confirmed that the GOP lied about the emails and tried to make the Benghazi tragedy into something it is not, who the hell in their right minds would ever believe anything the crazies on the right say.
They've been in a fever since Obama was elected to either defeat him in his second election and when that failed they go onto impeachment.
All of these Idiotic Republicans are Liars and hypocrites.
By not seeking the real truth, but deceiving so that they can destroy a good man and his presidency.

They will regret this.

If it is true that Dervish Sanders holds the view that we must not hold President Obama accountable for the misconduct of his administration, whether Benghazi, illegal seizure of phone records, or the IRS scandal (and there is more to come on this), and if Dervish Sanders believes that the American people have no right to challenge the president on matters that resulted in the death of four Americans, then of course, Dervish Sanders is an F-ing retard.

"They miraculously rescued Jessica Buchanan, an aid worker.."

And aid worker. Imagine that. A civilian "PC addled, feel good, squishy, feed the whales" type ( not that I have anything against all those goodie, goodie tofu eating types )...goes to Somalia...one of the worst hell holes, worthless, savage, illiterate 5th world "countries"...without a government...run by "pirates", islamist, swinging from the vine Neanderthals ...ostensibly to clean out land mines!!

That takes a military organization to do that sweety.

Anyway...we get a Seal 6 team to go in a rescue this civilian...at a huge cost and sacrifice...a risk to men and very expensive hard ware...and at what cost?

Who authorized this? The Sec of State? That's who. Why?

And who paid for this military incursion to rescue a civilian...when the same efforts, energy and planning where denied a sitting ambassador in another islamist hell hole called Libya, this time ( also in Africa...where 90% of the worlds hell holes exist )?

And who decided that this civilian was worth the expense and risk but not 2 Seals, a diplomat and one more American?

Really...we didn't have the assets for Benghazi. But we had them for insertion into Somalia...which is a hell of a lot further from Tripoli or Italy then Benghazi was.

When the senior State Department spokesperson indicated the primacy of protecting the building’s leadership, in an email, then the supposition that there was no conspiracy is defeated.

Yet to come is the genesis of the video fiction. Now I suppose one could argue that the video fiction doesn’t prove a conspiracy, just like it is possible the moon is made out of green cheese.

But what’s the big deal? This administration has mislead the American people from day number one.

Hey Dervish:

Imagine that in a week in which George W. Bush was dogged by not one or two but three scandals -- one of which was the IRS singling out liberal groups for stricter scrutiny -- a federal appeals court invalidated a recess appointment the Republican president made, finding he improperly ran an end run around the U.S. Senate.


The national media would, no doubt, pick up on the story as evidence that the president was abusing power, weaving the development into a larger narrative about the president's untrustworthiness in light of the aforementioned scandals.

Stick it in your ear...dipstick.

if this were Bush with 3 enormous scandals with American patriots and the media being so mishandled AND 4 dead Americans, TRUST ME, Dervish would be outraged that there isn't somebody's head rolling.

It was ALWAYS Bush whenever the slightest thing came up, but Obama's somehow impervious. Because Obama said so.

Bush had the class to know where the buck stopped...where the buck stops for Obama is in his pocket.

This mass hysteria about DHS is amazing. We follow the laws and deporting people by religion is against every known legal concept.
If we are going to start a wish list for people to deport Ducky goes to the top. Let him hang his hat in Cuba.

Moving on to the even more nutty. Anyone who thinks this was a low level scandal without intervention
at the highest levels does not understand how government works. A single instance is possible but not multiple cases.

Lastly, I do not gloat over deaths
in war. There has to be something separating us from the jerks who passed out treats when the WTC was incinerated.
