Bloodied and bruised at the moment of surrender: Dramatic new pictures emerge of the moment ‘Boston bomber’ climbed from the boat where he had been hiding, as a sniper took aim at his head

” Dramatic new images have been released showing alleged Boston bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev bruised and bloodied with his hands in the air as he emerges from his final hiding place.

  Cornered by police, the photos show the 19-year-old in a blood-splattered black jumper, with hands stained red and a sniper’s laser aimed directly at his forehead.

  The sobering pictures were released by Sergeant Sean Murphy, a tactical photographer with the Massachusetts state police, in a bid to show the real face of terrorism in reaction to the ‘glamorized’ image of Tsarnaev that graces the cover of Rolling Stone magazine’s controversial new issue.

  The officer has now been suspended over his decision to leak the photos, and will find out next week whether or not he will be allowed to keep his job.”

Michael Hastings, ‘Rolling Stone’ Contributor, Dead At 33

 

 

 

” Michael Hastings, the fearless journalist whose reporting brought down the career of General Stanley McChrystal, has died in a car accident in Los Angeles, Rolling Stone has learned. He was 33.

Hastings’ unvarnished 2010 profile of McChrystal in the pages of Rolling Stone, “The Runaway General,” captured the then-supreme commander of the U.S.-led war effort in Afghanistan openly mocking his civilian commanders in the White House. The maelstrom sparked by its publication concluded with President Obama recalling McChrystal to Washington and the general resigning his post. “The conduct represented in the recently published article does not meet the standard that should be met by – set by a commanding general,” Obama said, announcing McChrystal’s departure. “It undermines the civilian control of the military that is at the core of our democratic system.” “

 

 

” A contributing editor to Rolling Stone, Hastings leaves behind a remarkable legacy of reporting, including an exposé of America’s drone war, an exclusive interview with WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange at his hideout in the English countryside, an investigation into the Army’s illicit use of “psychological operations” to influence sitting Senators and a profile of Taliban captive Bowe Bergdahl, “America’s Last Prisoner of War.” “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 New Jimi Hendrix Single, ‘Somewhere’

 

 

 

” Named the Greatest Guitarist of All Time by Rolling Stone, Jimi Hendrix’s unparalleled technical know-how and experimental sensibility made him a star until his premature death at age 27 and a legend afterward.

“People, Hell & Angels,” an album of previously unreleased Hendrix songs recorded between 1968 and 1969, is due out March 5th (track list below). Rolling Stone said the album’s first single, “Somewhere,” “suggests his most complex work may have only been ahead of him.” “

The tracks:

1. “Earth Blues”
2. “Somewhere”
3. “Hear My Train a Comin’”
4. “Bleeding Heart”
5. “Let Me Move You”
6. “Izabella”
7. “Easy Blues”
8. “Crash Landing”
9. “Inside Out”
10. “Hey Gypsy Boy”

Gen. McChrystal Wants Tighter Restrictions on Civilian M4s

 

Stan McChrystal

 

 

” Retired Gen. Stanley McChrystal joined the growing ranks of talking heads speaking out on the current gun-control debate on MSNBC. McChrystal appeared on the show to talk about his new memoir ”My Share of the Task” but was quite clear about his position on the private ownership of weapons such as M4-style carbines. McChrystal was the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan before he resigned in the wake of a scandalous Rolling Stones article in 2010. I’m surprised he didn’t side-step the issue.”

 

 

  What kind of army officer doesn’t support our constitutional liberties ? This is a clear demonstration of the PC rot that has infested the upper echelons of all sectors of government including the military . Seeing this blatant statism from a supposed defender of our freedoms has to make one wonder where the Army’s loyalties will lie when the SHTF .
