PROGRESSIVE PIPE DREAMS: Urge Your TV Meteorologist to Connect Climate Change and Extreme Weather


What the hell is going on within the Obama Administration and their handling of terrorist-connected activities?

The original incident – triple killing, throats cut, anniversary of 9/11 …

A triple homicide was committed in Waltham, Massachusetts, on the evening of September 11, 2011.  Brendan Mess, Erik Weissman, and Raphael Teken were murdered in Mess's apartment. All had their throats slit from ear to ear, with such great force that they were nearly decapitated. Thousands of dollars of marijuana and money were left covering their mutilated bodies, and $5,000 was left at the scene. The local district attorney said that it appeared that the killer and the victims knew each other, and that the murders were not random.

All three victims were Jewish according to a number of sources.Weissman was outspoken about his Jewish faith, and an active member of his synagogue. Teken had majored in history at predominantly Jewish Brandeis University; he was buried in Israel.

Autopsies revealed that the men had been brutally murdered. Their heads had been pulled back, and their throats had been slit from ear-to-ear with either an ice pick or knife with such great force that they were nearly decapitated. Their mutilated bodies had been left covered with thousands of dollars worth of marijuana (seven pounds of marijuana; in what investigators described as a symbolic gesture) and thousands of dollars of money, in three different rooms. Police said $5,000 was left at the scene, which suggested that robbery was not the motive. <Source>

Then comes multiple interviews with Ibragim Todashevan, an acquaintance of the older Boston Marathon Bomber, Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The last interview ending in the suspicious death of the interviewee in the presence of the FBI and Massachusetts State Troopers.

The first shooting report – shot reaching for FBI agent’s gun or reached for a knife …

A Chechen man linked to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects was fatally shot early Wednesday in an unusual encounter with the FBI and other law enforcement officers in his apartment in Orlando.

According to federal law enforcement officials, the man was being interviewed about whether he and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the bombing suspect, were connected to a two-year-old triple slaying when he attacked an FBI agent. There were conflicting accounts of what happened in the moments before the man was shot.
One federal law enforcement official said the man, a professional martial-arts fighter, was shot after trying to grab the FBI agent’s gun. Two other officials said the man reached for a knife and was shot as he attacked the agent. All three officials spoke on the condition of anonymity because the episode is under official review.

The man was identified as Ibragim Todashev, 27, a former Boston area resident who knew Tsarnaev from martial-arts and boxing circles. Todashev had recently moved to Orlando from Cambridge, Mass.

Law enforcement officials said Todashev was not a suspect in the bombing. They said he was being interviewed about his possible role in a triple slaying in Waltham, Mass., in September 2011. They said Todashev acknowledged involvement in the killings and also implicated Tsarnaev in what the law enforcement officials described as a drug deal that went bad. <Source: Washington Post>

The walked-back shooting report – no longer clear what happened …

Three law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said initially that Todashev had lunged at the FBI agent with a knife. However, two of those officials said later in the day it was no longer clear what had happened. The third official had not received any new information. <Source: Associated Press>

The revised shooting report – suspect not armed, alone with an FBI agent …

Officials: Man who knew Boston bombing suspect was unarmed when shot

A Chechen man who was fatally shot by an FBI agent last week during an interview about one of the Boston bombing suspects was unarmed, law enforcement officials said Wednesday.

In the statement about Todashev’s shooting issued on the day of the incident, the FBI said that an agent, along with two Massachusetts State Police troopers and other law enforcement personnel, were interviewing “an individual” in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a “violent confrontation was initiated by the individual.” An agent sustained non-life-threatening injuries, later described by one law enforcement official as “some cuts and abrasions.”

Initial reports citing anonymous law-enforcement individuals provided conflicting accounts of what happened. Some law enforcement officials said Todashev wielded a knife and others suggested that he attempted to grab the FBI agent’s gun.

One law enforcement official, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation, said Wednesday that Todashev lunged at the agent and overturned a table. But the official said Todashev did not have a gun or a knife. A second official also said Todashev was unarmed.

An official said that according to one account of the shooting, the other law enforcement officials had just stepped out of the room, leaving the FBI agent alone with Todashev, when the confrontation occurred. <Source: Washington Post>

The on-going investigation that will take months …

The FBI has provided few other details, saying that the matter is being investigated by an FBI review team that may not finish its probe for several months.

“The FBI takes very seriously any shooting incidents involving our agents and as such we have an effective, time-tested process for addressing them internally,” FBI spokesman Paul Bresson said in a statement Wednesday. “The review process is thorough and objective and conducted as expeditiously as possible under the circumstances.”

Bottom line …

As with Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the AP scandal, the Rosen Phone Records, it appears that anything involving the Obama Administration and Eric Holder’s Department of Justice always involves multiple stories, each version in response to some new revelation that makes the initial reporting appear to be lies connected with a cover-up. This administration has done more to erode the trust and faith of the average American in their government. And, if it were not for a complicit and corrupt mainstream media not reporting on these significant issues, more people would be outraged.

One question that remains unanswered: what if the interviewee said that the attack was a 9/11 response involving Islamic radicals – a year before the Boston Marathon bombing -- would a rogue FBI agent let that become part of the national debate on the ongoing Obama narrative on terrorism?
