Boston Update: FBI War On Marathon Bombing Witnesses Continues

• Daily

For that reason, WhoWhatWhy is continuing to investigate troubling aspects of this story and the establishment media treatment of it. So even as it slips from the headlines, we will be exploring new elements of the story regularly as the trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev approaches.

Since the Boston Marathon bombing a year and a half ago, the FBI appears to be intimidating, harassing, and silencing friends and acquaintances of the Tsarnaev brothers. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's lawyers have noticed it too—they're having trouble getting anyone to talk to them, recent court papers reveal.

In what WhoWhatWhy previously described as the FBI's "war on witnesses", the Bureau seems to be employing a scorched earth strategy of destroying anything that might be of use to the "enemy."

Intimidating witnesses that would hurt a prosecutors case is standard procedure throughout the nation by all its police depts. A pounding at the door by detectives to make sure you understand the penalties for perjury and obstructing and interfering occurs on ALL defense witnesses. Insinuations that you must have been involved in the crime or conspired with the accused afterwards . . . has a way of shutting you up.

Don't take my word for it, hear from a Defense Attorney: "Witness Tampering, Always"
