Episode 100: “Boston Bombing Revisited: Ibragim Todashev’s Killer Revealed” with Russ Baker
Guest: Russ Baker
On this edition of Traces of Reality Radio: Guillermo is joined by Russ Baker, a journalist, author, and founding director and editor of WhoWhatWhy. We revisit the Boston Marathon Bombing and discuss recent developments in the case of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of Tamerlan Tsarnaev believed to be a crucial potential witness, who was shot and killed in his Florida home during an interrogation by police and FBI.
The FBI agent who pulled the trigger on Todashev has been identified as Aaron McFarlane, a former Oakland cop with a shady record of alleged corruption, police brutality, and physical disability leading to his retirement from the Oakland PD. We discuss what this means within the broader context of an official government narrative of the Boston Bombing that has always been questionable and is now coming undone.
