What's the difference between McVeigh, the mass shooters, and these guys.

They all terrorized and planned more.

So far the pertinent difference is that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is still alive. Hopefully that will not be much longer.

Yes, plus they all were interviewed by the FBI in 2011, received terrorist training in Sheremetyevo, Russia in 2012, and they all belonged to sleeper cells of at least 12 other terrorists.

That is silly to hope for that. If he did have "mentors" they are also hoping he is not alive much longer.

I can see that you've been praying to Jesus for guidance, Sandi. Surely your life will be much better after this man is dead.

The hospitalized Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was charged Monday with using a weapon of mass destruction – and the White House said he will be tried in a civilian court.

He will not be treated as an enemy combatant. We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

“Under U.S. law, United States citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. And it is important to remember that since 9/11 we have used the federal court system to convict and incarcerate hundreds of terrorists.”

There is so much to learn from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. I think he could yet have a productive life.

DT has not confronted his parents or his past friends about what he did. He is still in fantasy land. I expect that a year from now, his mindset could be completely different.

I expect/hope the interrogators will treat him gently. I think the kid should be co-opted. There is a lot to learn about when and how and why the switch flipped with him. We could learn a lot about spotting patterns in other young, potential terrorists.

On the other hand, maybe the kid is just a very slick sociopath. A born killer. I hope we learn whatever is there.
