Who Do You Trust?


The boy who cried wolf

You know the story of the boy who cried wolf. He lied so many times that when the wolf finally showed up, nobody believed his pleas for help and he got eaten.

Well, now we're being asked to believe the FBI. The same FBI who told a number of lies on a particular case and now they expect us to believe them. So, this time they're telling the truth. Hmm.

Here's the tragic story and it goes back to a post I made on August 4, 2013. It was called "Can You Trust The FBI?" The gist of that story was that Ibraham Todashev, supposedly a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bombers, was justifiably killed while undergoing questioning. The FBI gave six different accounts of their slaying the unarmed, cooperating witness. Watch this to refresh your memory:

Now, it seems, these same FBI are claiming categorically, unequivocally and without a doubt that Boston Bomber Tsarnaev was behind the bloody, brutal triple murders in Massachusetts. According to MailOnline:

Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev did participate in a brutal triple murder 16 months before the deadly  marathon attack according to court records filed on Tuesday.

This conclusion is based on the same FBI agents who concocted six different reports on the murder of the "friendly witness," Todashev. (I know, these foreign names are hard to keep straight, but you'll figure it out)

Considering they couldn't get their story straight right after the event, why should we believe them now? Didn't we learn anything from Aesop's fable?

'According to Tsarnaev's friend Ibragim Todashev, Tamerlan Tsarnaev participated in the Waltham triple homicide,' prosecutors wrote in a motion filed on Monday according to MyFox Boston.

This bothers me. Certainly someone capable of plotting, planning and carrying out the horrific Boston Marathon bombings could have killed three people over a drug deal gone bad. It's not a huge stretch. And if Tsarnaev did do this, he should be tagged with that crime. The victim's families should know the truth. They should be allowed their grief with the knowledge that the loss of their loved one is solved.

But is this the real truth, or simply a convenient truth?

triple murder in Waltham

Waltham Mass. police were stumped and unable to solve this triple murder for a year and a half after it happened. Now it's so easily solved through another crime? One in which the connection and unarmed witness has been shot and killed by the G-men?

I know investigating one crime often turns up evidence of other misdeeds. Maybe it did this time too. But maybe the crime it shed light on wasn't in Waltham Mass. Maybe it was a different murder-- one committed by lying, prevaricating, can't-get-our-stories-straight, over-zealous, Feds.

When is the FBI going to investigate and reveal the findings of the Ibragim Todashev death? When that comes out and if it stands the "sniff" test, then I'll believe they have the right guy in the Waltham triple murders. Until then, this is just another story from the boy who cried wolf.
