Paul Craig Roberts, The Boston Marathon Bombing 8.5 Years Later

Paul Craig Roberts

Eight and one-half years ago on April 15, 2013, there was a bombing claiming three victims at the Boston Marathon that had elements of a false flag event, such as crisis actors with pretend injuries. Two brothers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were blamed for the bombing. Tamerlan apparently died while in police custody. Dzhokhar, shot by police, somehow managed to escape and was later found hiding under an overturned boat in someone’s back yard where he allegedly had written a confession in the dark on the side of the boat he was hiding under.

There were many anomalies about the bombing event, the getaway crimes allegedly associated with the brothers, and the capture of Tamerlan. The entire city of Boston, including airport, was shut down while police went house to house searching for Dzhokhar, a wounded 19 year old. Troops with tanks occupied the city. There was unethical intervention by US prosecutors with the Tsarnaev family. Media did not investigate and simply repeated the prepared narrative.

Many experts raised questions. The crisis actors were exposed. The unprecedented closing of an entire city while police ordered families out of their homes while their homes were searched were shown to be extreme measures just to capture a wounded teenager.

In other words, a thriller terrorist story was orchestrated to make certain the public saw the brothers as dangerous terrorists.

I covered the story at length on my website (see for example August 17, 2015). John Remington Graham saw that the brothers were being quickly convicted in the media, which raised the question whether media conviction was substituting for the lack of evidence.

After 8.5 years the case has reached the U.S. Supreme Court. John Remington Graham, an experienced prosecutor and defense attorney filed an argument for friends of the court before the U. S. Supreme Court, pointing out that the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev ignored the exculpatory evidence that was never heard and proved him not guilty. Here is a statement from Graham’s argument:

“In sum, during the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Boston, decisive exculpatory evidence of record or subject to judicial notice, and showing the actual innocence of Mr. Tsarnaev, was never called to the attention of the jury at trial, was left unmentioned by counsel on both sides, and was ignored by the presiding judge when the sentence of death was imposed. The same decisive exculpatory evidence was called to the attention of the circuit court by these friends of the court on motion granted, then again ignored.”

In November 2017, attorney Graham intervened with the US Court of Appeals for the First Circuit pointing out that exculpatory evidence had been ignored in Dzhokhar’s trial. The appeals court set aside the death penalty, not, however, on the basis of the ignored exculpatory evidence, but on the basis that Dzhokhar was under the influence of his older brother, Tamerlan, who was primarily responsible, and for the failure of the trial judge to question jurors whether they were influenced by extensive pre-trial news coverage.

Despite Biden’s opposition to the death penalty, the Biden justice (sic) department has asked the US Supreme Court to overrule the appeals court and to reinstate the death penalty. With the Boston Marathon Bombing narrative set in stone, the actual innocence of the accused has become irrelevant. The orchestrated narrative is likely to conclude with an act of judicial murder.

John Remington Graham on Dzhokhar

On the day of, or the day after the explosions, FBI investigators found a blown out black backpack near the postbox in front of the Forum Restaurant on Boylston Street in Boston.  This blown-out black backpack had carried the pressure-cooker bomb which had been ignited by the culprit in the this case.  It was necessary only to find who had carried the black backpack.   We have two clues, the first being a video run by Whiskey Steak House on Boylston Street, which includes a still-frame showing Dzhokhar carry a light-weight white sack over his right shoulder at the time of the explosions, the other an article by Toni Cartalucci (cited on page App. 7 of our appendix) including photos of men in paramilitary gear who carried a black backpack which perfectly matched the blown out black backpack found near the postbox in front of the Forum Restaurant.

These facts were made known to the press and the judges.  Everybody knew that Dzhokhar was not the culprit whose white sack did not match the black backpack found near the postbox in front of the Forum Restaurant, but that one of the men in paramilitary gear, identified in the photos published in the article by Mr. Cartalucci, were responsible.  The men identified by Mr. Cartalucci were not approached or questioned by FBI investigators or other peace officers. Federal prosecutors went after Mr. Tsarnaev, even though he was carrying a white sack over his right shoulder at the time of the explosions, and could not have been guilty.

Court-appointed counsel for the accused in the federal district court in Boston, the First Circuit, and the Supreme Court were all aware of the same facts; they likewise knew with certainly that Mr. Tsarnaev could not have been guilty, and probably that the men identified by photos in the article by Mr. Cartalucci were responsible, but they nevertheless admitted that Mr. Tsarnaev was guilty, as the knew was not true.  The case could and should have been dismissed  by pre-trial motion in behalf of the accused, supported by Brady evidence.  The lawyers on both sides refused to acknowledge these facts of which they were aware, and framed the issues in this case as if these facts did not exist.  This charade is the central reality of this case. If you have questions or comments, please feel free to contact me. – John Remington Graham, a member of the bar of the United States Supreme Court (admitted August 5, 1971, #83902)

  1. One of the sloppiest hoaxes ever. BHO was one of the architects of it. It had the look of idiots in charge.

    My doctor took one look at the famous wheel chair photo and said…” an obvious hoax.” File.


  2. I have recently become interested in the D. B. Cooper alleged aircraft hijacking and parachute jump which as allegedly never been solved. A lot has transpired since then. and I’m now convinced the D. B. Cooper event was just another FBI false flag psy-op which was used to enhance airport security. In that sense it has a lot in common with the BMB.

      1. The Boston bombing? Sure, it was to subvert Posse Comitatus, a statute from 1878, that precludes the use of military forces for policing functions and the 4th Amendment against unreasonable search and seizures. Creating chaos in America. Undermining law and order. And making two young men out to be terrorists, when the real perps were Americans working for Craft International. Everyone in the legal case knows that it’s fake and would constitute a case of judicial murder were he put to death. It’s a complete disgrace.

      2. Thanks, Jim. Undermining Law and Order seems to be the overriding objective – down to the present. What do we know about Craft International?

  3. If you really want to drill down to the marrow of the Marathon scam. Find all the people working in the ERs that day. The bomb site was equidistant from two major hospitals. Here’s an interesting fact … that you can walk faster to Mass General Hospital than you can drive from the bomb site. Unless it’s the weekend and/or if you are driving an ambulance. If you could find the ambulance drivers that day, IMO …. you could find out more about the truth of injuries than from any other source.

    I can tell you that Mass General was in a lockdown during the aftermath of the bombing.

  4. If you could dig up the people on duty at the ER the day of the Marathon Bombing working at Mass General, I wonder what they would say about that day? Especially if you could dig up any of them that retired. I wonder if any of them had to sign an NDA about what they saw. That would be whacking a Hornet’s Nest to see how badly you get stung is my thinking.

  5. My GF was a nurse at MASS General when the supposed victims were brought in for treatment. She did not work in the ER. This hoax was well executed because there was no talk she knows, of the staff —indicating the victims’ injuries were anything but real. I have no clue how they pulled of the fraud with hospital.

  6. File: A naked Tamerlan seen standing by police car. An hour later he was photographed dead in hospital, covered in ghastly wounds. Investigators claim he was run over by police car.

    So much fake blood was splashed about that the City of Boston had to remove paving stones to prevent people from collecting souvenirs.


      1. The File photo: this shows Alvino who was given a medal at the WH by, you guessed it.
        She was seen breaking windows at the ”bomb” site.


      2. Here is Zubeidat Tsarnaeva who told reporters that her older son was talking to the FBI for a year before the Boston Marathon. Now one is dead and one is in prison.
