Boston bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev telephoned his mother from his heavily guarded hospital room at Fort Devens in Massachusetts: Don't worry. All is well.
Russian authorities secretly recorded a telephone conversation in 2011 in which one of the Boston bombing suspects vaguely discussed jihad with his mother, officials said Saturday, days after the U.S. government finally received details about the call.
With the dramatic daylong manhunt over for the younger suspect in the bombing of the Boston Marathon, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has launched an intense investigation into both suspects' ties to Chechnya and extremist groups, and they have a good starting point.
"Tamerlan was counseled by the FBI for three, five years," she said. "They knew what my son was doing. They knew what actions and what sites on the Internet he was going. How could this happen? How could they – they were following every step of him, and they're telling today this is a terrorist act."
Zubeidat Tsarnaeva told CNN Friday in an interview that the FBI has been keeping tabs on her son for three to five years and wondered how the U.S. government could have allowed him to go ahead with his plans if they were watching him so closely.
