An excellent summary from Gary Bauer’s “End of Day” report of what is known so far about the apparent Boston terrorists and the background of their native country, its terror history, etc. …
Worth the one minute to peruse …

BREAKING NEWS: Boston On Lockdown
The entire city of Boston is locked down right now. Mass transit has been shut down, residents are being told to remain in their homes and businesses have been asked to remain closed.
As I write, police have killed Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two Boston Marathon bombers, and they are reportedly closing in on his brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
The brothers robbed a convenience store last night, hijacked a car and killed an MIT police officer. Around 1:00 AM they engaged in a shootout with the police in a Watertown neighborhood. They reportedly threw bombs out of their car at the police.
There were reports that Tamerlan Tsarnaev charged police officers and had an explosive device on his body. Reuters noted that he died from multiple gunshot wounds and “possibly the blast of an explosive.” In other words, he died like a jihadist homicide bomber.
We know that the two are from the Chechnya region in Russia, an area plagued by radical Islamism. You may recall that it was Chechen jihadists who stormed the school in Beslan, Russian, killing more than 300 people, half of them children. According to their uncle, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar have lived in the U.S. for at least a decade.
We have reported on occasion that Al Qaeda wanted to recruit Muslims who did not fit the profile — recent converts, white Europeans, Muslims from Bosnia and Chechnya who do not appear Middle Eastern. It seems as though the Salon columnist who hoped the bomber(s) was white got his prayer answered. They are white. But guess what? They are also radicalized Muslims!
Having grown up here, why would they turn on us? This is not a new phenomenon. The Fort Hood shooter, Nidal Hasan, was born in this country. Many recent terror plots in England involved not Middle Eastern immigrants, but their British-born children.
