Why the dishonesty? There is no mystery to why they bombed the marathon. One of them said specifically that they did it as retaliation for all the Muslim identified people who have been murdered by the Americans, including civilians who have had their arms and legs blown off? It's not a justification but it's their reason. Is it that it is politically verboten to tell the people that our actions over there can have consequences to us here? Which is also why 9-11 happened,btw. Not the false self serving narrative that they're irrationally reacting to the fact we're not Muslim! That you continue to give a false narrative is itself false propaganda.

Some reports at the time posited a connection between the brothers and a multiple murder related to drugs. Do the guests have any information on this aspect of the story?

Didn't the older brother's wife and child live with the two brothers in their small apartment? If so, how is it she knew nothing about the bomb-making activities?
