"Was Katherine Russell Tsarnaev A Potential 'Black Widow?"
MIM: Had Katherine Russell Tsarnaev gone to Dagestan to be with her husband and his family as he reportedly planned the question can be raised as to if she could have become the first American born 'Black Widow'. According to news reports she was the one who counseled her husband on how to be a more religiously observant Muslim in their daily Skype talks while he was in Chechnya connecting with jihadists. After the FBI published the brother's pictures she warned her husband by phone that the police were looking for him telling him "you're being watched" prompting him and his brother's flight.
Katherine Russell Tsarnaev converted to Islam and started wearing the hijab when she married terrorist Tamerlan Tsarnaev. They have a 3 year old girl. She is currently hiding out at her parents home in Rhode Island and immediately after the bombings 'lawyered up' to avoid incriminating herself during any law enforcement investigations, It is highly unlikely that she could not have had any inkling of her husbands murderous intentions and participation in the bombings since she last saw him on April 18th, three days after the attack and he assembled the bombs in their kitchen and bathroom while he was supposedly 'babysitting' his 3 year old daughter. The police found traces of explosives in the bathtub. At the very least the terrorists wife would have smelled or noticed something. It was just reported that she has stopped speaking to investigators who are monitoring her every move.
It may only a matter of time before she will be taken from her parents home in handcuffs and charged as an accessory to the terrorist attack which killed 3 people and injured nearly 300. Her husband and his brother were also responsible for the murder of an MIT police officer...(click on link above for complete posting)
