Before the Boston Marathon bombings, Tamerlan Tsarnaev had apparently been consuming reading material that dealt with subjects from “the rape of our gun rights” to pro-Hitler white supremacy to claims that 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombings were government conspiracies.

He felt like America was just basically attacking all Middle Eastern countries … you know, trying to take their oil,” one friend said.
