Times Square Attack Planned by Boston Bombing Suspects, Authorities Say

CBS News, April 25, 2013

The suspects in deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon also planned to attack Times Square in New York, authorities announced Thursday.

“The surviving attacker revealed that New York City was next on their list of targets,” New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said during an afternoon news conference. “He told the FBI, apparently, that he and his brother had intended to drive to New York and designate additional explosives in Times Square.”

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Dzhokhar Tsarnaev told interrogators from his hospital bed that he and his older brother had decided spontaneously Thursday night to drive to New York and launch an attack with their five pipe bombs and a pressure-cooker bomb like the ones that blew up at the marathon.


The plan fell apart after the Tsarnaev brothers were intercepted by police in a stolen car and got into a fierce gun battle that left Tamerlan Tsarnaev dead, Kelly said.

“We don’t know if we would have been able to stop the terrorists had they arrived here from Boston,” Bloomberg said. “We’re just thankful that we didn’t have to find out that answer.”


Tamerlan had come under scrutiny from the FBI, the CIA and Russian intelligence well before the Boston attack. The CIA had added Tamerlan’s name to a terrorist database 18 months ago, after Russian intelligence flagged him as a possible Muslim radical, a U.S. official told Miller Thursday.

    Tamerlan was on a terrorist database, but so what? I’m on the Terrorist Watch List. Databases like these become useless if you put too many people on them. Part of the point should be focus, with a relative assessment of each individual. Even then, there will be a tendency by career officials to play the “CYA” game by rating everyone in the most dangerous category, which again would make the system useless.

    • The__Bobster

      I wouldn’t be surprised if I were one some watch list either, you know, the conservative White guys who have Ron Paul and NRA stickers on their cars.

      • bigone4u

        It’s too bad Obama’s alleged father was not on a watch list 50 years ago. He was a communist, but diversity trumped common sense, as it does today.

      • Puggg

        The good news is that most of the people who wound up on this list because of their Ron Paul bumper stickers are now scraping or steaming those stickers off, so maybe they’ll get off that list, too. After all, the only bumper sticker really worth having on your car is “I Brake for Pugs.”

        • Bob

          Ha ha! I’ve had three pugs, and when I find one running loose (we both know they don’t understand cars and sometimes water and heights) it’s mine!

        We are all on Engleman’s watch list

    • bigone4u

      Not to invade your privacy, but I just googled “michael c scott criminal record” and got 701 records returned by mugshots.com. The clowns at the FBI probably don’t know which Michael C. Scott you are any more than they were able to associate Tamerlan with the bombing. In response to your comment on CYA, a computer algorithm rating folks on the list could be a way to control for that.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Ouch! 701? I didn’t do all that stuff! The best looking one is probably me.

    • Jefferson

      If it was it up Eric My People Holder, every Non Liberal White person in America would be on the Terrorist Watch List.

    • dogbone

      Racism is terrorism. Anyone with racial identity is a terrorist – except jewish people.

    • Morris LeChat

      and they also planned to “designate” explosives in times square. So what, as long as they don’t “detonate” them then there will be no problem!

      • MollyM

        Hold on there, the genius in residence recently couldn’t tell the difference between ‘illustrious’ and ‘infamous;’ you’re going a bit fast for him.

        • White Mom in WDC


          There have been posits on SBPDL re: this bombing that in fact it was a planned out diversion from the rampant murder and rapes of white women in the US by black men. That in fact these guys are just scape goats and there are bigger fish behind the scenes

    • MollyM

      Well…if you’ve run out of things to brag, er, delude yourself about…TWL’s one angle…

      • IstvanIN

        Mr. Scott is one of the brightest posters on here. You would do well not to make snotty comments about him. How about making an intelligent contribution to the discussion?

        • MollyM

          If you call bright someone who actually had no idea what the word illustrious meant while mocking someone who used it correctly (a fair white woman no less) then I guess we have a different working definition of the concept. All Mr. Scott contributes is the most pernicious, insidious form of anti-white agitprop I’ve ever seen. He is the ultimate self loathing white person and you would be doing better if you could recognize that.

          • MiollyM

            Addendum to Istvan: Do you consider ignoring the FBI’s warnings that they will send you straight to jail for continuing to threaten to kill and rape someone ‘bright,’ much less doing it to begin with? This is an embarrassment to any pro-white movement, not to mention dangerous. Mr. Scott, according to the FBI’s reporting, threatened to rape his stepmother and stepsister.

          • IstvanIN

            One can be intelligent, occasionally misuse a word and be criminal all at the same time.

          • MollyM

            Michael Scott’s emotional and psychological problems are not the province of
            pro-white or even race realist advocacy; in fact, he embodies the absolute worst stereotype that any white-positive camp should combat and reject. He rails against black people, and on occasion white women, when neither have done a thing to him. He is the classic bigot, defining his own character failures in terms of some supposed unworthiness he ascribes to a demographic that has zero responsibility for what is in fact his own depravity. I don’t consider threatening to rape white girls and women, or any women, ‘misusing’ a word, BTW. He does more to embarrass and discredit authentic pro-whites than any multicultist ever could.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            Now you’ve done it. You’ve really done it. I paid for that, after my ex-father cheated me out of my patent money. He used my money to bribe Cambridge University officials in England.

            I have a history, a terribly painful one. Would you like to read why neither my sister nor I would voluntarily go home after school in any hurry? I defended my mother so many times and was beaten for it. When my sister saw me walking up the hill to our house, she walked away if the garage door was open. That meant I was going to take a beating.

            When the Myers family let me stay there, down on Lehigh Street, my friends’ parents knew I was afraid to go home. If you want this, I can tell you everything.

            I would rather spend ten years shoveling snow off driveways and walks with Brian and Ed and their father than any time at all with my own ex-father.

            I will never forgive anyone who received or otherwise benefited from my money. Never. I had three years to think about it. They are parasites.

            He never gets to visit his grand-daughter. Never. Perhaps he knows her name now, but if my ex-father showed up at my door, nobody would ever even find pieces of him. I will hate him forever.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            I knew exactly what “illustrious” meant. I was simply astonished that a detractor would compliment me be referring to me that way.

    Have any of you been to Times Square recently on a typical non-big event day or night?

    Where are all the White people?

    Where I was there, nothing was seen but dark, dusky, hideous, ugly, non American immigrant Diversity. The only good thing I saw in Times Square was that enough Whites were staying the heck away from the cesspool.

    When the Muzzies blow up Times Square, they will be killing mostly their own kind.

    Then, MSM will blame White privilege for “abandoning the public space” and forcing our beloved Diversity communities into “too crowded conditions” where they suffered from a bomb that was intended for us, but couldn’t find us because we are rich enough to afford hiding places, because we are so racist we would have hiding places, etc.

    Remember the Christian churches in New Orleans blamed blacks suffering on the privileged Whites who were racist-rich enough to leave in time in their own cars and have somewhere to go?

    Not enough Whites getting blown up in Times Square will be called “a failure of democracy and a call to do more to prevent segregation”.

    • White Mom in WDC

      When the Muslims did the 9/11 deal they actually ended up killing a number of members of the diversity pool.

      I am getting outta Dodge so to speak. Metropolitan areas are not safe. Not only because the increase of black on white crime, especially the maiming of white women, but cities are prime destinations for muzzies to strike and any other terrorist.

      Oh the glorious gifts of this global gulag

    • Katherine McChesney

      ‘Remember how the evangelical “compassion for the world” Christian

      Absolutely ridiculous. The lies they tell…..

  • bigone4u

    Somehow the younger brother shot it out with police while in the boat. Then it turned out he had no gun. Since our corrupt government invents stories about guns, I believe none of what they have to say in this instance. Let there be an independent committee investigating the entire affair. There’s something fishy here and it ain’t yesterday’s fish.

    • nicholas

      Whatever they find, it’s scary that a pair this stupid were capable of inflicting so much suffering. Civil society rests on assumptions that are readily trumped by idiocy….

    • KJSweet

      There’s a lot fishy, but there is no such thing as an independent committee that operates under any auspice of our government. People need to beware of Bloomberg and his Gestapo State.

    • jackryanvb

      We have to get away from this Government Conspiracy theory paranoia where nothing can supposedly be believed a nd thus nothing can be done. The facts of this terrible terrorist bombing aren’t hard to understand and they confirm the Amren White racial world view:

      Nasty, non White, Turko-Mongolian Mountain Muslim scum from Chetnia were somehow allowed to immigrate in to our United States of America, settle in to a White area outside Boston and proceed to do the predictable bad thins such low life , non White Mountain Muslim scum do ( harass White wome, fight with, intimidate white males, fail in school, beat up their White girl friend, force the White girlfriend to convert to Islam, he goes for extremist anti White, anti Western Islam) then the biter, loser NW Muslim immigrant goes on a mass murder spree of almost all Whites. It’s called “sudden Jihad syndrome). These same nasty Chetnian Muslim mountain goat $&@& scum are famous for doing the same nasty things in Russia. Russian strong White man Putin ( Our guy) rose to power and remains in power in Russia for beating down these nasty NW Muslim mountain terrorist scum.

      So the facts of the Boston bombing are’t all that complicated, it’s not all some government conspiracy theory to frame poor peaceful Muslim immigrants from the Islamic 3rd World. Look at how the Swiss People’s Party handles these immigration issues.

      • Michael_C_Scott

        Of course you’re right, but within the next 12 hours we’ll probably hear “the Jews” did it using “thermite” because they want our money.

        • MollyM

          Oh no, for the next ten totally unproductive years Amren posters will be claiming ‘the feminists did it.’ Some might have had it right the first time.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            OK, who you think did do it, because as a chemist, I know thermite does not blow up? It’s powdered aluminum and powdered iron oxide (ordinary rust), and while it it burns wicked-hot, it goes very slow. I made this as a college chemistry major home on summer vacation. I have 79 US and foreign patents in chemistry, so this isn’t hard for me. My FBI file even says “firearms expert, explosives expert, chemist, ex-mercenary”. This isn’t complicated stuff.

            The thermite reaction is:

            Fe2O3 + 2 Al –> Al2O3 + 2 Fe.

            The molten iron is very hot but also runs at a density of 7.9 times that of water, which means it won’t go anywhere except down. All of the combustion products are solids, which means there can be no enormous expansion of hot gases as in an explosion.

  • whitehouse muslim red alert

    Just the tip of the iceberg exposing the muslim radical Marxist revolutionary coddling lying treasonous WH immigration reform is really to overthrow the entire nation in the same way he promoted the North Africa al-queda muslim brotherhood takeover and then tried to lie and cover for the 4 murders in Benghazi but got caught redhanded, So far nothing has been done.

  • anarchyst

    “Times Square planned attack” Yeah, right, with help from our federal “alphabet agencies” that put them up to it. . .

  • sbuffalonative
  • Intrepid

    These days it’s difficult to tell what’s true, from what’s being manipulated and sold to the public to achieve other goals (e.g., spreading fear and social control). It doesn’t help that the U.S. military is notorious for exaggerating threats in order to get increased funding and other resources.

    • jackryanvb

      No it’s not. Most everything happening in America is very easy to understand if you have a sane, healthy knowledge of racial realities.

      Take the high crime rates, poor public schools and high poverty in American cities like Detroit, Camden New Jersey, Birmingham Al. In 1955 Detroit had the highest per capita income of any city in the world. Detroit was “the Paris of the Midwest”. Is anyone reading American Renaissance confused about why Detroit changed from prosperous, safe to poverty stricken and violent. Is anyone reading American Renaissance confused why Zimbabwe – once the “bread basket” of Southern Africa now has food shortages?

      Nasty non White Muslim immigrant men doing murder, mayhem in Boston and every other White community in the world is not hard to understand:

      It’s what they do everywhere in the remaining White World!

      There is a reason regular SANE White locals in every remaining White country from Holland, England, Australia, Sweden all of Eastern Europe detest these low IQ, hateful, destructive NW Muslim immigrant men and want to forcefully sterilize the ugly Muslim immigrant women who give birth to these terrorist monsters. All of the people groups that HATE our White people work to flood White nations with these murderous, NW Muslim terrorist, rapists, scum.
      Russia now has a handle on this problem and also pursues a neutral, pro Russia Middle East foreign policy. All we Whites in America have to do is to do what the Russians do.

      So can we please have a break at Amren from Conspiracy Theory trolls who post confused nonsense about Muslim immigrant terrorism, Muslim immigrant crime, Muslim Immigrant men sexually harassing, raping our women, grooming poor White girls in to lives of prostitution slavery for nasty old Pakistani men?

      How about Muslim mountain men doing massive opium, heroin smuggling? I’m sure some race denying Libertarians will come up with some ridiculous nonsense that that’s OK and we just need to legalize all drugs right after we implement complete open borders immigration from the entire Muslim 3rd World.

      Please remember American Renaissance is a pro White web sight. Try to make your comments reflect this world view.

      • GM (Australia)

        Agree, Amren is a pro-white site and must stay that way and posters should stay unified in our aims and concerns, as simple as that. We have enough enemies from without and we should not be attacking each other.

        I post from Australia because there is no way I can discuss my concerns about race or non-white immigration here. We have multiculturalism forced upon us and it would be a very brave person who would openly criticize Islam here. Are people blind? Every night on the news we see Islamic Terror acts committed somewhere in the world. Even here in suburban Sydney there always seem to be serious acts of violence involving Muslims, presently it is drug related gang wars involving street shootings. Islamic immigration has made parts of Sydney almost no-go areas. In one of our Islamic suburbs (Lakemba) there are credible reports that there was almost dancing on the streets after 9/11. (Of course there were lots of crocodile tears from Islamic leaders) Then there are the gang rapes by Islamic youth as well as their total contempt for Australian laws and customs. I ask again, just what are they doing here in our society?

        Our leaders tell us that we are not at war with Islam, but I would suggest that Islam is most certainly at war with us. I also feel that Obama and Cameron are just itching to have an excuse to go to war in Syria and support the islamists.

        In a major story that I am still trying to come to terms with, Australia’s national airline QANTAS has gone into full partnership with the Dubai based Emirates Airlines, a partnership born out of commercial necessity. It just seems so wrong and until we really know that Islam is NOT at war with the west this partnership also seems worrying as well.

    • Tucker

      I agree with Intrepid’s analysis. We are being LIED to by our hostile ruling elites constantly, and the mainstream media is nothing more than a propaganda outlet that our hostile ruling elites use to shovel endless lies, fear mongering, fabrications and baloney into the gullible and embarrassingly empty skulls of the masses of sheeple.

      Remember – this 19 year old kid was unarmed, but the media and the hostile ruling elites tried to say otherwise. The cops were clearly trying to murder this kid once they discovered him hiding in the boat. Also, the older brother was naked, handcuffed and safely placed into the back of a cop car – but, then somehow winds up riddled with bullets and ran over by a cop’s SUV? What does this tell us? I’ll tell you what it tells me – the cops and/or the FBI wanted both of these guys dead – because for some reason, they didn’t want either of them to have a chance to talk. Could this be because these two guys might have revealed something that would have destroyed the ‘official narrative’ that our hostile ruling elites were trying to sell to the public about the whole Boston Marathon incident? I think so.

      Oh, and we all have seen that still photograph of the 19 year old kid climbing out of the boat, right? No sign of blood on the kid’s face, neck, throat or clothes. Yet, the next picture we see is him laying on the ground and someone is doing at tracheotomy on him? Then we are told that the kid – who is wasn’t armed – tried to shoot himself and this is how he got his mysterious neck wound? Oh, and didn’t they tell us that he might never be able to speak again? But, now they are saying he had a miraculous recovery and confessed to all these crimes – but then clammed up, once he had his Miranda rights read to him?

      Come on, people. How bad does the stench have to get before we all begin to realize that our government is infested with lying, conniving, diabolically evil criminals?

  • obomba the ammo guy

    Homeland Security, a GW Bush big gumint creation, just spent 1.6 billion to buy tons of ammo ? Their excuse is buying in bulk is cheaper? Maybe the Obomba gumint is secretly buying up all ammo to take away 2nd Amendment Rights after this crybaby tyrant pos just went ballistic losing the Congressional vote although this was before the Boston bombing.

    If an earthquake destroys Jew York City, who cares?

  • Jenkem Huffington

    The big lesson we should take from this is that no matter how vast our police state is, they can NEVER keep you “safe”.
    The other lesson here (that I picked up on in 2001) is that the people in power get MORE POWER when these events happen. Notice nobody talked about closing the borders then and nobody is talking about it now, and trust and believe, the day the borders are sealed tight it will be to keep us in. Seriously, airport security is a joke, border security is virtually non-existant, potentially the scary brown terrorists could have been flooding in by the thousands and having their way with us for decades.
    The way I read it, we are on the express train to totalitarian socialism. Illegals pouring in undermine the middle class and have no notion of a free market or Republican form of government. Socialism is always a step up for those at the bottom. Same with blacks, they embrace anything that promises to take care of them. At the same time blacks and browns bring crime, destruction, and fear to which we react by taking guns away from whites and increasingly oppressive police state measures.
    The only bright spot is that I forsee after these muds have been used to bring about socialism here they will quickly be eliminated or enslaved…. then again, at that point we won’t be far behind them.
    In what is coming, there’s only 1 list and if you’re not on it you’re screwed.

    • Michael_C_Scott

          • MollyM

            There is nothing suspicious, much less paranoid, about pointing out that Israel is a socialist governmental system; why the moderator deleted a comment pointing that out I don’t know, although I’m quite certain I am not your ‘dearie,’ and that you blab, just like you did when you ignored the FBI’s fair warning, well past a point where you make any sense, and in a completely amoral dimension. Such is the way of the narcissist.

          • Michael_C_Scott

            I responded to direct and completely unauthorized threats with extra-legal punishment by FBI Special Agent Carr, after which I followed him home from work. FBI Special Agent Moen lied under oath on the witness stand, and I ran into him on the outside while shopping for a new garage door opener. Moen recognised me, addressed me by name, and we talked; he admitted he had merely repeated in federal court the wort things anyone was willing to say about me. That’s not a very honest cop, but I shook his hand and pitied him, because he looked so very old.

            Yes, I really, really did follow an FBI agent who had threatened me with unlawful and extra-legal punishment home from work; the PoS thought he could bully me. Curiously, nobody threatens me anymore.

            I neither provide nor accept “warnings” anymore. I prefer life as it is; I am a woodworker, machinist, and vegetable gardener. I would really like to get a raspberry or blackberry bush started out front this year.

            I guess I forgive Robert Moen. That’s not hard for me.

      Disagree. New York City is now a very safe place after 2 decades of racial, immigration criminal anarchy (70s, 80s up to election of Guliani in early 90s). The White led NYPD is very tough, effective and does racial profiling, spies on Muslim immigrants. Good. #*($# idiot, race denying Libertarians like Ron Paul – their idea of anything goes “freedom” is Somalia or some nasty, Muslim extremist terrorist in Yemen who’s supposedly a United States citizen becaue of some technicality of “Birth Right Citizenship”. I hope these race denying, open borders immigration Libertarians have their next convention in Yemen or some Muslim immigrant community in the USA and then all the idiot/traitor Libertarians get blown to pieces, beheaded by the “Religion of Peace” scum.

  • Mike

    Maybe its just me but the government was to quick to identify the suspects. I haven’t seen any evidience of guilt. How can they be so sure? And little attempt to take them alive. That boat was riddled with holes. Surely they would want to take them alive and see if more people were involved. We are being fed info from people who should be asking questions.

    • Michael_C_Scott

      Little attempt to take them alive?

      They pro-actively shot a cop, for crying out loud! Also, the fatal injuries sustained by the older one were caused by his little brother running him over, trapping him under the vehicle they had car-jacked, and then dragging him some 40 feet while he was pinned beneath it. Don’t do this at home, kids!

    US has not secured its Borders probably since the 80’s, first mass 1986 Amnesty program. I can see the sudden changes within 5 yrs of failed immigration policies in our cities. It’s a mind-boggling mix of zero unity and rapid deterioration. Govt refuses to shift funds from illegals (edu. and health care) to border security. It’s a total joke on the American people with years of false promises. I expect this “insanity” and failure from the US govt as it “pretends” to offer a Constitutional service of protecting its Borders. This Boston Bombing event now invites others Muslim radicals to do their damage since the US Govt has advertised its ineptness world wide once again.

    • bigone4u

  • jackryanvb

    The New York City Police Department NYPD, led by very effective, tough White men (Bratton, now Kelly) is the best police department in the world. And yes, the NYPD does racial profiling – stops and frisks suspicious Black and Hispanic males in the criminally prone years (14-23) and spies on Muslims. Good. All the idiot, anti government conspiracy theory kooks, nut cases, screwballs, loners, losers that hang around White American racial activism – these CTs will try some spin that the NYPD shouldn’t bother Muslim immigrants and everything violent and bad in our society is part of some all encompassing government conspiracy, “Inside job”. If you are new to American Renaissance, be on guard for these CT idiots.

    Yeah, hell yeah – we want OUR police forces to spy on Muslim immigrants, racially profile Black and Latino punks, gang bangers.

    If Cambridge Mass (home of traitor college Harvard University) had simply done effective, racial profiling police work, then lots of White marathon runners wouldn’t have been maimed.

    White racial realism is a good thing.
