ALL of Boston is on lockdown as is a fair amount of the closer parts of Greater Boston.  I've lived in Greater Boston for 18 years and never seen this huge of a lockdown EVER.

Okay, I basically just woke up to all this (again), so here is what I can gather. The Boston bombing suspects were identified, with one bombing victim who positively ID'd them:



They then got into a shootout at MIT when they encountered police, leaving one police officer and one suspect dead. The other is still alive and at large, and his name is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev--his brother is the deceased suspect #2.

Timeline here.

According to WBZ, our local news here in MA, the one still at large may have automatic assault weapons and grenades.

So they're connected. I'm not sure if I'd call that "good" per se but at least there's an explanation that is fortuitous.

Also... they're Chechen. Not doing much about that public image, хлопчиків (boys).

Turns out they're a couple of al-Qaeda-sympathizing Islamocrazies. I think Pamela Geller just orgasmed.

Huh, still doesn't explain why you'd bomb a damn marathon. But crazy is nothing if not illogical.

I'm sure their motivation is more or less gibberish about infidels and the liberation of Chechnya.

As Distind noted, fundamentalism is pretty much on the opposite end of the spectrum as logic.

Tamerlan Tsarnaev apparently was an Islamic End Times zealot, from reading the subject matter of his personal YouTube

favorites page.

I wonder how RR's will spin this? The deceased terrorist's world view is religiously very similar to theirs.....

True enough. I still would have expected somewhere more in the direction of Europe.

Unless of course it turns out a relative of Kadyrov was running in the marathon. Or something. I don't know.

Goddamn, this is insane. According to this article, NBC reported that two other suspects were taken into custody. I haven't heard that anywhere else though. Can anyone confirm it?

Just heard on WBZ that somebody ELSE was arrested now.  No word if any connection to the suspects.

(Warning: linked page is apparently very busy and may fail to load due to high traffic. Try it again - it's interesting & worth the trouble)

Okay, that links to a series of hover-for-captions pictures of Tamerlan Tsaraev at a boxing and martial arts gym, not dated, but may be from several years ago, judging by comments he is quoted saying about being here five years. Some of his quotes are shiver-inducing in light of what he did this week....
