The American intelligence community is busy on two fronts: covering their asses regarding their failure to anticipate the Boston Marathon bombs and trying to find the elder Tsarnaev’s connection to a terrorist organization (or two). It’s still not clear whether or not one or both of the brothers received “professional” training. Yesterday’s revelation that they carried a BB gun piqued commentator hryan’s curiosity. “The BB gun makes me wonder if they started the night with only one gun and picked up another handgun and the rifle from the slain MIT cop.” This pic—showing the Tsarnaev’s shooting at police in Watertown—indicates that they weren’t rank amateurs . . .
Notice the Weaver shooting stance from the bomber on the left. Also clock the fact that they’re using the car’s engine block for cover. To my mind that indicates a tactical mindset. If so, was it gleaned from the ‘net, TV and movies, or learned from someone with experience?
