Boston Bomb Suspect Says Brother Was Mastermind – Eric Spillman Reports

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has indicated that his older brother Tamerlan, not any international terrorist group, masterminded the deadly Boston Marathon attack, a U.S. government source said.

Tsarnaev, who has been hospitalized with a tube down his throat since Friday, communicated with investigators by writing and nodding.

The preliminary interviews with Tsarnaev suggest the two brothers fit the classification of self-radicalized jihadists, the government source said.

Tsarnaev has conveyed to investigators that Tamerlan’s motivation stemmed from jihadist thought and the idea that Islam is under attack, and jihadists need to fight back, the source said Monday.
