  On April 15, 2013, two homemade bombs exploded near the finish line of the Boston marathon, killing three people and wounding more than 264 others. In the ensuing manhunt, Tamerlan Tsarnaev died, and his younger brother, Dzhokhar, was captured and ultimately charged on thirty federal counts.

Yet long after the bombings and the terror they sowed, after all the testimony and debate, what we still haven’t learned is why. Why did the American Dream go so wrong for two immigrants? How did such a nightmare come to pass?

Acclaimed Russian-American journalist Masha Gessen is uniquely endowed with the background, access, and talents to tell the full story.

Herbert London: Putin, Obama And Flight 17

Jul 30, 2014

The evidence that Putin provided the SA11 missile system and the requisite training and or actual participation for the dissident Russian forces in the Eastern Ukrainian is mounting. An effort to withhold evidence and conceal it adds to the calumny about this Malaysian airliner blown from the skies. Yet President Obama’s initial reaction to the destruction of flight 17 and its 298 passengers was so wooden and lacking in compassion, one might think this atrocity was a daily occurrence.
