"Tamerlan Tsarnaev radicalised himself...through the internet"Submitted by go213mph on Sun, 04/28/2013 - 09:21
This article is full of massive propaganda. Lone wolf, homegrown terrorists, mastermind, rabbit hole, conspiracy theory, brainwashed etc. Also, I thought the msm said the little brother told "officials" that he and his brother "planned" an attack in NYC? Well, if thats the case, what does this quote mean?

"According to accounts of the surviving brother's responses to questioning, he has insisted that they acted alone and that he knew of no other plots or undetonated bombs."
Other excerpts from the article:
The 26-year-old, who has been identified through fingerprinting as the man killed in the shootout with police in the Watertown suburb of Boston, is widely assumed to have been the mastermind of the marathon outrage, with his younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev allegedly playing the role of junior partner.
Federal investigators and counter-terrorism experts are increasingly of the view that the brothers were acting alone. The surmise is that the elder Tsarnaev largely provided his own motivation and training, through the internet.
Two US officials involved in interrogations of the suspect told the Associated Press that preliminary evidence was that there were no ties to any Islamist terrorist group." Sageman said that contrary to the popular perception that most terror attacks are orchestrated and organised, in fact the lone wolf attacker is the contemporary norm:
The huge majority – 90% – of plots in the west since the 1990s have come from people who decide to do it on their own and who don't have links with the outside.
