FBI Working Hard to Deport Friends of Ibragim Todashev, The Man They Killed During the Boston Bombing Investigation

indexDiscrepancies and oddities during the Boston Bombing investigation? Deportation and death? Whodathunkit?

Via TechDirt:

This week’s This American Life is an entire hour devoted to investigating the FBI’s killing of Ibragim Todashev along with a companion piece in Boston Magazine. You probably heard about the basics of the Todashev story. Todashev was a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of the two brothers implicated in the Boston Marathon bombings (and the one who was killed when law enforcement tried to capture them), who was being interviewed by the FBI and was then shot multiple times and killed — with a whole variety of conflicting stories coming out soon after as to what he did to lead to his death.

But reporter Susan Zalkind, who had been friendly with one of the 3 men killed back in 2011, which Todashev supposedly confessed to taking part in, decided to explore the story more deeply, and found a variety of oddities at every turn, nearly all of which involve strange moves by the FBI

    Some people are never happy.

    News gets out that you’ve killed someone during a private interview and everyone gets upset. Try to oblige them by covering it up later on and they totally lose their sh*t.

    You just can’t win.
