I think what he meant was the US was supporting Chechnyan Rebels vs. Russia. So why attack the US.

Then again, on more extreme cases, you have blowback by former US allies
- Taliban
- Sadam Regime
- Current Iran Regime

Or they could be nutcases who just happen to be Chech.

My bet would be religious nutcases. Regardless of nationality or race, it almost always comes down to religion in these cases.

As said earlier, take it with a grain of salt. The news media is all over the place on this (as is gasping for any information). Even sources posted do not have the correct information right away.

me? or the whole thread?

The thread is for real time updates based on scanners and tweets. If you want solid facts that are confirmed 100% wait a few days until the dust settles.

That's what I hate about this. Of course they are, yet the media is quick to jump on categorizing the potential suspects.

I hear yelling

Fox News Live Video - Fox News

Seems like an unedited feed, and the reporters don't know they can be heard

Fox interviewing a guy who knew both of them, one is a boxer, one a wrestler

Makes it sound like they've been here a long time, not 1 year like reports are saying.. huh

OK finally some clear info:

Suspect at large is the kid with the hat. Dzhokar Tsarnaev, a Chechnian Russian

The guy who got killed was his older brother Tamerlan.

No idea who the girl is who they took from the apartment, but they said she was older.
