Someone got this one right. Tamerlan Tsarnaev applied for but was denied U.S. citizenship. Was it because of suspected terrorism or a domestic violence arrest and/or conviction? Hopefully by tomorrow, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s citizenship will be revoked (although that’s not going to happen – just wishful and logical thinking on my part). It can be done and should be done. We should learn from our ill-executed handling of American cleric Anwar al-Awlaki who we killed in a drone strike. The Boston Marathon bombings cannot be seriously considered “domestic terrorism.” As I listen to pundits pondering what happened to radicalize these two Russian immigrants, I am appalled. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was about 10 when he arrived in the U.S. How many three-year-old Palestinian kids have you seen who hate everyone not Muslim, and particularly Jews? There are thousands of them, and you can bet throughout all Muslim lands, there are millions of very young jihadists just waiting for their turn to bring the Muslim Caliphate to life – including Chechnya and Dagestan.
On Fox in a phone interview with a friend of Dzhokhar’s, and during the manhunt for him, the friend said that Dzhokhar was very angry at the U.S. for going into Afghanistan. That could be true, and the anger could have started years ago. We don’t know who their parents are but know the mother is a thief and the father thinks Dzhokhar is a angel, and said “all hell will break loose” if we kill him. Sounds like a threat to me.
Did Dzhokhar ever travel to Russia or Chechnya to visit family during his time in the U.S.? Did Tamerlan make only one trip there? Who connected to the family came to the U.S. using anyone in the Tsarnaev family on U.S. soil as a contact? Why did the parents go back to their homeland?
This is the perfect time, although long-past due, that any naturalized citizen engaging in terrorism on our soil or against our country, to lose citizenship promptly. See JudicialWatch for Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s domestic violence arrest.
The Maraton bombings are not domestic terrorism.
