Proclaiming the swines' innocence, of course:

Boston Marathon bombers' mother stood defiant in the wake of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's guilty verdict Wednesday, declaring in a message to a supporter that her convicted mass-murderer son is 'the best of the best.' The 21-year-old Tsarnaev was found guilty by a Boston jury this morning of all 30 counts - 17 of them carrying the death penalty - in connection to the deadly 2013 attacks.But the bomber's mother, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva, continued asserting Dzhokhar and his late brother Tamerlan's innocence.

In a text message to her sons' supporter Timur Rudayev, Zubeidat Tsarnaeva called the convicted killer 'my precious boy' before going on a rant against the US. 'America is the real terrorist and everyone knows that,' she wrote in the text, which was later shared on the Russian social media site VKontakte and sent to the news blog Vocativ.

'My boys are the best of the best,' Mrs Tsarnaeva added.

The scary thing is, she means it. The even scarier thing is, from her Islamic perspective, she's right. This is war, but only one side knows it.
