Zubeidat Tsarnaeva's interview from Russia
Ms. Tsarnaeva expressed some of her greatest anger when one questioner said Dzhokhar had told officials that the brothers were motivated by an extreme interpretation of Islam. She said Dzhokhar’s lawyers had assured her that he could not yet speak or write.*
“Where does this information come from?” she shouted.
Good point. Would have been nice, at this point, if the reporter had followed up with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's public defender.
NOTE * Indeed, the bedside hearing where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was Mirandized says that he "nodded affirmatively." And therefore did speak or write.
