In the aftermath of the April 15 Boston Marathon twin bombings, there are more questions than answers—not only about the shadowy figures said to be the terrorists, but also about the performance of governmental agencies and authorities charged with countering terrorism.
Stephen Lendman, a renowned author and research associate at the Center for Research on Globalization, puts the Federal Bureau of Investigation under the microscope in this edition of Leid Stories. The agency, he says, has had, and continues to have, cozy relationships with terrorists, and has been directly implicated in several terror plots.
It is quite possible, he says, that alleged bombers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev were “set up” to commit the bombings. “The official story,” he says, “is full of holes.”
