Why would anyone believe a bona-fide terrorist?. Also, the mother appears to be a total wack job, and she herself is in part responsible for the radicalization and alienation her sons obviously felt to make these comments, stating that this is a set-up, and that her sons are being framed! How ridiculous. Her sister, who lives in Canada, has the same beliefs.
This is not the first time I have seen and heard the mother's of terrorists support the actions of their sons. The mother of the 16 year old Canadian citizen Omar Khadr who was convicted of throwing bombs at American soldiers, and who was responsible for the death of Captain Christopher Speer, a 28 year old who weeks earlier had been awarded the Soldier's Medal after he saved the lives of two Afghan children, made the derogatory comment that at least her son "isn't a homosexual." The mother's homophobic comments did not go unnoticed in the Canadian press.
Today, Khadr is in a Canadian prison. He was moved to an Ontario jail in October of 2012, and is supposed to spend another six years there. It is evident that Khadr was indoctrinated into the Pakistani Al Qaeda cells. Certainly this young man is no innocent, but his treatment by the Americans remains a serious concern. While Khadr Sr. died in a jihadi attack, it is also clear that the man's wife wholeheartedly supported the violent actions of her both her son and her husband. As a dual US and Canadian citizen, I do not feel comfortable allowing terrorists to live in Canada.
I am wondering whether or not Dzokhar Tsarnaev will be allowed to live in the US? Do we not have the right, as Americans, to expel those who are not living up to the letter of the Constitution? I think that they should be sent back to Russia, there is no reason that we, as Americans, need to be spending tax dollars to house individuals like this for decades.
