Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s mother says she’s ‘100 percent sure this was a setup’

We’ve already heard from the aunt of Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who angrily expressed her suspicions that the photos of her nephews were staged. Father Anzor Tsarnaev told ABC that if Dzhokhar is killed, it will prove that the whole thing was a setup. The suspects’ mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, is on board as well, telling CNN that the FBI had been watching her son Tamerlan for years and tracking his Internet activity.

    Yes, those 12,000 agents chasing him had nothing better to do today.

  • Pendog

    Hmmm, their uncle seemed to have a ‘slightly’ different opinion.

  • kateorjane

    This would be the “thief” mother?

    • Banky O

      How very convenient that this little tidbit about the mom’s theft sad released so quickly and promptly by the authorities. Perhaps they knew she would speak and wanted to discredit her early.

  • Stephen K

    He’s 19 years old, and the FBI has been watching him for five years? Since when does the FBI put 14-year-olds under surveillance?

  • Lisa Dean

    Let’s see, her son has been in the US since he was 8 and the FBI have been watching him for 5 years, which means it started when he was 14, and this is a set up. Gotcha Mama #smh

    • Squirrel!

      I think it’s the older one, who was 26, that she was saying was being watched for the past 5 years.

      • Lisa Dean

        Thanks for clarifying @disqus_OrNLlUp4KV:disqus. I guess I wasn’t paying too close attention to her interview, kind of like when Obama speaks, I tuned it out a bit.

  • Rich

    After seeing the interviews with the mother and father you can see there was some good parenting going on there. Yikes.

    • Stephen K

      Someone on another forum I frequent made a good point. These two were going to MIT, attended a fancy prep school, wore expensive clothes and drove expensive cars that they frequently traded in, etc. The parents frankly sound and act as dumb as a pair of matching stumps, and the only one of the bunch who sounds like he has any brains at all (the uncle) wanted nothing to do with them. So where was all of the money coming from?

      • cocamars

        Last year Mom was caught with $1600 of shoplifted clothes at Lord & Taylor . Highly unlikely she was caught in her first venture into the lucrative world of shoplifting and fencing stolen goods.

        • Saar

          i think he’s implying (and rightfully so) that they were being funded by some nefarious types.

      • lshamber

        Bunker Hill Community College & UMass Dartmouth, not MIT. The policeman they killed was an MIT campus police officer.

  • abe-froman

    These are Muslims people!!! Taqquiya (known in the normal world as “lying for Islam”) is a way of life. I know that this will take a while to understand in liberal-la la land ….one day you’ll wake up …just like the Belgians are now …..

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      This is also a mother. My mother will always think the best of me. I will generally work to enforce that view though.

      • nc

        I beg to differ. I’m a mother, and, while I am supportive of my son, I do not lie about his “shortcomings” – especially to myself.

        • John (it true me am)

          Lying about them and being blind to them are different though. Playing Devil’s advocate and giving her the benefit of the doubt, she’d hardly be the first parent to say their mass murderer or serial killer child was a sweetheart and mean it.

      • radicallyalyssa

        As she steals more from stores.

  • Tantalus XVI

    Clearly there is a Tea Party wing of the FBI… >_< UGH! Liberalssssssssssssssssss!

  • Billie Slash

    This broad is giving Nancy Pelosi a run for her money in stating the outrageous.

    • Peacelanese

      I have to say- I love comments from intelligent people

      • Billie Slash

        Great! Perhaps one day you’ll be one too!

  • Saar

    A administration that bow’s, apologizes, and refuses to condemn muslim fundamentalists- figured you know what we need right now? to set up a muslim and shine yet another bad light on islam.

    Yeahhh it was totally a set up.

  • CarpeNoctem

    Is that picture of her a mugshot?

    • Randi Starr


  • cocamars

    Why did Dad and Shoplifter Mom go back to the motherland leaving their younger son in the care of their crazy older son?

    • rjstange

      The amount of “cash flow” this family seems to have access to is somewhat mystifying. Several trips to the “Motherland” and the lifestyle and schools are of an upper income family. And to think that they came here on asylum….the true American Dream.


    Deport this trash, they do not deserve to be in America.



  • sqdog99

    Go away gypsy!

  • Joanne Fusco DeStefano

    Why would she tell the truth…of course she will lie….she’s a muslim, too and yes her life would be in danger if she spoke out about her killer islam

  • Karl Winrich

    Well if they were setup, then it’s just another manufactured crisis for the radical leftist to use to try and bludgeon the tea party with. Maybe it was after all, what with how fast the media was to blame those ‘evil tea baggers’ for this act of terrorism.

    • Squirrel!

      And deporting the Saudi national this coming Tuesday after Kerry & Obama have had private and/or secretive meetings with ppl in the Saudi gov’t.

  • John Smith

    Another Chechen rat from the Caucuses. Send her back to Grozny with the rest of the filth.

  • registereduserbutnotstupid

    Where did these brothers get funding for expensive prep schools, college and expensive cars? PUTIN!

  • capisce

    “My youngest son was raised in America since he was 8”.

    An America where school children, every day, hear of truth, justice and the American way. Where American values are reinforced by historical references and modern day examples. Where American ingenuity, resourcefulness, inventiveness, and daring to explore and achieve are celebrated and imparted by teachers to their students. Where the greatness of America, in philosophy and deed, instills pride in every child and prompts them to continue the dream of ensuring America remains the “shining city on a hill”.
    He graduated from the Cambridge Rindge and Latin School — a public school known for its diverse student body.
    Which is more likely – that the schools he attended taught a curriculum centered on America’s greatness or America’s arrogance and ill-gotten place in history and the world stage?
    Our children are indoctrinated early to believe the latter and our cultural and societal changes are fruits of that poison tree.

  • Dave

    For Muslims its okay to lie if you lie to the enemy, which is America and the American people. Send them all to the gulag. To all radicals you will not win this war!

  • radicallyalyssa

    Your arrest for 1600 bucks worth of shoplifted goods was a set up, too, right? Dumb broads..

  • cgraham77

    It’s a conspiracy being carried out by Lord and Taylor!

    First she was set-up by Lord and Taylor for shoplifting…then the Lord and Taylor cameras caught her 2 precious boys planting bombs!

    Don’t you guys see? This is an obvious set-up!!

    • Paul Citro

      Did the camera’s show their welfare entitlement.

  • Mark81150

    sometimes denial is a shocked parent.. So she’s either lying, or doing what a shell shocked mom might do, refuse to face the reality her son is a monster.

  • Jimni27

    well, she looks nurturing….

  • GoSellCrazySomeplaceElse

    I thought that was Kim K. without make-up.

  • descolada9

    While I understand a mother’s shock and horror at a child doing horrors like this and how such a refusal to accept such horrors can be messing her up, I would point out to her that her sons were not the only Central Asian Muslims in Boston or the USA. And there are a lot of Central Asian Muslims who have had far worse criminal records than her sons. The point is that if the USA govt. was looking to set up someone, they could have chosen people who would be much more believable as loser scum assholes than her sons.

  • Colonel_Bat_Guano

    Is it just me or does she look like Dracula’s mother?

  • Maquis

    Parents that deny their little angels’ demonic actions own that evil.

  • Tom Anderson

    Of course she did, and we should all rush to believe a kleptomaniac and a liar (HUMOR/SARCASM). The progressives however will grasp at any straw and run with it.

  • jojofido


  • Binnie Ann Baumgartner

    I’m sure someone planted explosive devices on the body of the oldest boy. Yeah, right!!! This mother is delusional.

  • lainer51

    well, if those wonderful boys’ mother says it’s a set-up, it’s a set-up…. surely she wouldn’t lie to us, would she? After all, she did a stellar job of raising her children.
