Boston Bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev Was On Welfare In 2012

The latest on the Chechen refugee Boston Marathon bomber brothers and their family:  the ingrates were receiving welfare benefits. The parents- while they were still living in the US, and Tamerlan, his wife Katherine Russell and their daughter- up until 2012. They lost the benefits because they no longer qualified since Katherine was busting her ass as a home healthcare worker while hubby spent his days self-radicalizing, and learning how to make bombs.

The news raises questions over whether Tsarnaev financed his radicalization on taxpayer money.
Relatives and news reports have indicated that Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s descent into extremist Islam began around 2008 or 2009, when the ethnic Chechen met a convert identified only as “Misha,” began to become more devout, and sought out jihadist and conspiracy theorist websites, and the rabidly anti-Semitic propaganda tract, “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.”
Looks like he managed to radicalize his mum, too.

His uncle Ruslan Tsarnaev said it was around that time his nephew gave up drinking and was devoting himself to “God’s business,” while Tamerlan’s mother, now wearing a hijab — an Islamic headscarf — began relating conspiracy theories about the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks to her cosmetology clients that she said her son had told her.

The rest on the Boston Herald. Kudos to them for delving into this, even after the Department of Transitional Assistance was refusing to divulge any information. As it is, they haven't released much.
