Fmr. Attorney General Mukasey: Boston Bombers 'Did Not Act Alone'

The two brothers in the Boston Marathon bombings undoubtedly had help in planning and executing the deadly explosions, former U.S. Attorney General Mike Mukasey believes.

And there’s no question the surviving brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, deserves to be put to death if he is convicted, Mukasey told Newsmax TV’s “The Steve Malzberg Show.’’

Story continues below.



“I am convinced that the two of them did not act alone. I’m not talking about the three indicted [on Wednesday]. I’m talking about before, because the creation of those bombs and other materials wasn’t entry level work,’’ said Mukasey, who served under President George W. Bush.

“They functioned with others … This guy is a poster child for the death penalty when you consider what he did and the planning it took.’’

Mukasey said the criminal complaints announced today against two of the three teens — both non-citizens charged Wednesday with obstructing justice — shows the government has major problems in enforcing immigration policy.

“You take a look at the criminal complaints. Two of these guys were in the country on student visas. They were already marked for deportation. They were supposed to have been deported,’’ he said.

“Apparently there was some legal proceeding ongoing and they were out and going to school. This is not the act of a couple of guys covering for somebody's underage drinking or violating a curfew or cheating on an exam.

“This was a horrific crime and they covered it up … So it's pretty grim.’’
