Here is the latest on the Boston Marathon bombing:
Meanwhile younger brother Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the younger of the two brothers suspected of the Boston Marathon bombings one week ago today, is beginning to respond to investigators’ questions. Tsarnaev was taken into custody Friday night after an intense 24-hour manhunt.
Meanwhile The Boston Globe reports this morning on the increasingly radical turn taken by Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the elder of the two brothers. And friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev are blaming Tamerlan of “brainwashing” his younger brother.
Law enforcement officials say the Boston bombing suspects were planning on striking again – possibly outside Boston.
Will Dzhokhar Tsarnaev be labeled an enemy combatant so that investigators can question him without an attorney – or will he be in the criminal justice system and subject to the death penalty? Several key Republican lawmakers want Tsarnaev handled as an enemy combatant, while the Obama administration seems to want to subject Tsarnaev – a naturalized American citizen – to the criminal courts.
