DWS: ‘Tamarind Was Investigated and Cleared’


On CNN’s State of the Union this morning, DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz appeared to mangle the name of one of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, saying “they were — Tamarind was investigated, and when he was investigated, he was actually cleared.” In Wasserman Schultz’s defense, the two brothers’ names aren’t that easy to pronounce, but the given name of the suspect whom the U.S. intelligence services investigated is pretty phonetic (Tamerlan).

Would that our potential enemies were named after sour, easily sweetened fruits rather than Central Asian conquerors.
