FBI Changes Story About Shooting Boston Bomber FriendSubmitted by republicanmother on Thu, 05/23/2013 - 16:32
Remember the crazy story of the guy pulling a knife in the midst of several armed men while about to sign a confession to a triple homicide? Yeah, well the director of that script sent it for a rewrite:
Initially, FBI officials said Todashev, 27, became violent and lunged at an agent with a knife while he was being questioned about Tsarnaev and an unsolved 2011 triple murder in the Boston suburb of Waltham. The agent, acting on an "imminent threat," then shot Todashev, they said.
However, later in the day, some of those officials had backed off that preliminary account, and it's no longer clear what happened in the moments before the fatal shooting, The Associated Press reported.
Man, I must be getting old, because I remember when the sources to these stories actually had names. It's starting to seem like Hal the Computer just prints all this crap out for the AP or something.
