Original Message Tamerlan Tsarnaev Was Approached To Be An Informant, Defense Says
Defense lawyers for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev say the FBI had asked his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, to inform on Boston’s Chechen and Muslim community.
In court filings Friday, defense attorneys reference a letter sent to prosecutors last February, in which they allege “the FBI made more than one visit to talk with Anzor, Zubeidat [Dzhokhar and Tamerlan's parents] and Tamerlan, questioned Tamerlan about his internet searches, and asked him to be an informant, reporting on the Chechen and Muslim community.”
Prosecutors say they found no evidence that Tamerlan was solicited by the government to be an informant. Defense attorneys insist prosecutors have that evidence, and are asking a judge to force them to turn it over.

Is anyone really at all surprised by this?

And of course as expected...
The Boston FBI office declined to comment on the claims made in the court filing but cited a statement it released in October in which it said the Tsarnaev brothers were never sources for the FBI, "nor did the FBI attempt to recruit them as sources."

Too bad the only person other then Tamerlan (dead) that knew specifically about him not only being offered but ACCEPTING the FBI informant role in 2011, was his good Chechen friend from years back Ibragim Todashev, and we all know what happened to him (also dead)... How convenient!
