Was Tamerlan Tsarnaev indeed two "people" in one?
I must admit that the more I look into this case, the more confusing it gets. For someone so apparently inept, how did he manage to keep his supposed terror-plans hidden from everyone, and how did he pull it off without any testing? (Why does the government allow such plans to be put on the internet, and why does it allow people to purchase the key ingredient in the form of fireworks?) Was he in fact two "people" in one - was he possessed by the Spirits of Darkness, who have a proclivity for discarding their tools once they're done with them? Might these same spirits have overshadowed everyone who made a decision that ultimately facilitated the bombing, such as by persuading the FBI that he was of no consequence? It's an easy way to explain the contradictions, but there's no way to prove it.
