Very few details are available yet. The Boston Police Department tweeted about the arrests, then confirmed them to CNN.

 

No details yet on who has been picked up or what their connection to the bombing may be but the use of the word “suspects” is surely critical.

On Tuesday, news broke that female DNA had been discovered on remnants of at least one of the two pressure cookers used in the April 15 bombing.

Update: Boston.com reports that the three have been picked up for harboring the Tsarnaevs after the bombing.

The three people were connected to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, the surviving bomb suspect, at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Tsarnaev was a student. They allegedly helped him after the bombing, a different source told the Globe.

“Additional details will be provided when they become available,” police said in a statement. No news conference was scheduled. Neither the FBI nor the US attorney’s office in Boston immediately had a comment.

They may have helped the bombers dispose of evidence.

Two federal law enforcement officials, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss an ongoing inquiry, said the three disposed of material at a Boston area landfill at the request of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev following the bombings.

The Boston Police said Wednesday that they had arrested three suspects in connection with the bombing but did not identify them or provide further details.

Last week, federal investigators searched a landfill at New Bedford, Mass., after a tip that evidence had been left there.

Update: A nice follow-up to the COEXIST bumper sticker that turned up when the bombers were on the run.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev were reportedly arrested Wednesday, along with one other person, for allegedly making false statements and obstructing justice during the federal investigation into Boston Marathon bombing suspects Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

Tazhayakov and Kadrbayev, who are reportedly in FBI custody, drove around in a black BMW with “Terrorista #1″ license plates and were also photographed with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev in Times Square.

Update: The third suspect has been identified as Robel Phillipos, an American citizen. The affadavit alleges that the three may not have had prior knowledge of the bombing, but they helped the bombers dispose of evidence afterward — without being asked to do so. They threw away the younger bomber’s backpack after learning that he was a suspect.

Howdy, OSC! The real story is that the Holder Justice Dept. and the Napolitano Homeland Security couldn't find ice in Alaska let alone terrorists in Boston because they aren't looking. We are, as they say, in the very best of hands.

So, um, they just found three more lone wolf terrorists who aren't part of any larger conspiracy? Am I getting that right?

Female DNA on a pressure cooker! Great-grandma is the most likely to have touched a pressure cooker in the last year.

It seems perfectly obvious to me that these two athletes - a boxer and a wrestler - were bombing a foot race - it is clearly a species of workplace violence, like, you know, Lincoln's assassination in a theater by a disgruntled actor.

Well, the official Obama.MSM position is that the Boston atrocity was a one-off, lone-wolf, nothing-to-see-here, event, that may or may not have been of a terroristic or Islamic nature. They are still not ruling out that the Chechen brothers could have been involved in "far right" activities owing to the Tea Party or other domestic terror organizations, such as the Republican Party.

There's an article on BostonGlobe.com with more details about the "3 charged with conspiring to obstruct justice, making false statements." These three were college friends of Johar and they removed a backpack containing hollowed out fireworks from Johar's dorm room. The cops recovered the backpack and its contents from a landfill. The disposal of the backpack happened after the photos and video of the two terrorists were released to the public by the FBI. The 3 knew or suspected that Johar was involved. No evidence was cited that they knew about the bombings before they happened.

After the arrest of the younger brother, a subset of journalists began an intensive search for the underlying causes that may have caused the brothers to committ such a heinous act. They offered hidden causes that ranged from the psychiatric centering on alienated youth, to the sociological and even the existential.

But what facts did we know early on:
1. The brothers had become very religious of late according to friends.
2. Their computer screens contained Jihadist websites.
3. They were tossed out of a certain mosque twice for shouting down the imam with militant rhetoric., once when the imam was praising Dr. Martin Luther King.
4. They were young males.

Even though they fit the Jihadist template perfectly, the insistance on underlying causes continued. We were treated to a classic case of journalistic malfeasance, as this subset of supposedly objective pundits viewed the eposide through their multicultuist world views, rather than honestly assessing the available evidence.

In J.D. Salinger's cassic coming of age novel, The Catcher In the Rye, the protaganist is a 17 year old boy who feels alienated from society and decides to isolate himself from that society. He wears his isolation as a badge of honor - that he is somehow better than everyone else.

I'm sorry. These brothers were not the Jihadists in the rye. They were cold-blooded terrorists who believed they were promoting the Jihad through their deed. Nothing more, nothing less: Period.

Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev.? Obviously disinformation put out by the Koch brothers and the rest of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy (TM). All terrorism is committed by right-wing Southern Baptist Tea Party white guys. Their real names are undoubtedly something Southern like Darryl, Roy, Culpepper, Vern, Roscoe, or even Beauregard; they were born and raised in rural Texas; they have a Confederate flag bumper-sticker on their car instead of "Terrorista #1", and they think phonics is a Commie plot.
