I'm still confused about what the joke was. I'm intrigued.

From twitter retweeted by Chis Hayes: @IntelTweet: The official media arm of the Chechen mujahideen has rejected allegations that two Chechen men were responsible for the Boston bombings.

Many militants from Chechnya came to Afghanistan to fight US troops. I see no other possible explanation or motivation.

Of course CNN and the rest of the media will be afraid to say that though, as I'm sure they're very disappointed it wasn't some crazy right wing anti government white guy.
Your analysis has been rad so far, so keep going with this.

Sensitivity aside, what's the punchline? Where's the humor in that? If you're going to go out on a limb, at least have the joke be funny.

That, and justice. And for the victims' and their families to look at him in the eye and tell them the pain he's done. He may not care, but it could be enough for them.

And not just white, they're literally Caucasian. Like, from the Caucasus. There's something oddly funny about that.

Why he was calling them and not the FBI, I have no earthly idea. So I'm very skeptical of it. But he said they all called him Tim. He's from Cambridge, where they went to school (the two brothers). They're replaying it right now. This kid claims that the older one went back to Chechnya around last December. The hosts told him to get in touch with the authorities. Says he's been friends with Tim since 2005. He also said that the claim that Tim said he had no American friends, didn't understand them was untrue in his opinion-that all his friends were American.

This guy could be a fraud, have no idea obviously.

A local TV station also interviewed one of their uncles, a guy who allegedly is an uncle. He claims "Tim" told him back in 2009, the last time he spoke to him, that he had gotten into Islam.

Also, local tv stations are claiming that the dead brother was wired with a suicide vest with a trigger device. They fear that the younger one could be wearing one too. I want him caught alive- but obviously if he's going to try to kill more police officers, or anyone else, they will have to stop him. If he doesn't just kill himself first, which will probably happen.

There are reports going around that "Tim" has said he has no American friends and he doesn't understand Americans.

Stay safe, MrsS! Hope your friends and family are OK!
