Fox News details new information in the case of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev, with a new report on the FBI briefing lawmakers that two years ago the Tsarnaev brother’s mother texted family members indicated a belief that her eldest son would be willing to die in the name of Islam. The report also reveals that a federal judge intervened and came to the hospital where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was being questioned, interrupting the FBI’s interrogation.

The report cites two anonymous sources on Capitol Hill confirming the FBI briefing lawmakers on the texts, the newest detail in a story that has increasingly become more about the radical Islamic beliefs of the bombing suspects.

There was also reportedly some confusion regarding the arrival of a federal judge in the hospital where the younger brother was being questioned.
Fox News’ sources say there was confusion about Bowler’s timing, with some voicing concerns that investigators were not given enough time to question Dzhokhar under the “public safety exemption” invoked by the Justice Department.
The FBI was reportedly stunned to see the judge show up, and expressed their concern that “valuable intelligence may have been sacrificed” in the confusion.

Editors note: This post has been updated to clarify that the text messages were sent by Tsarnaev’s mother to family members.
The mother of Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev knew as early as 2011 that her son had been radicalized and sent text messages to family in Russia suggesting he was willing to die for Islam, the FBI told lawmakers this week according to two officials with knowledge of the Capitol Hill briefing.

The names of Zubeidat Tsarnaeva and her son, Tamerlan, were added to a watch list about 18 months before the attack, two government officials said on Thursday.

Zubeidat Tsarnaev, the mother of the two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing, attracted the attention of law enforcement officials long before her boys stood accused in the attacks she contends were faked.

Two government officials told the Associated Press that U.S. intelligence agencies added Mrs. Tsarnaev to a federal terrorism database 18 months before the attacks in Boston that killed 3 and left 246 people injured.

Contacted by Russian officials in late 2011, the CIA was told that Zubeidat and her son Tamerlan were religious militants who were planning to travel to Russia, and added the mother and son to the classified terrorism database.

Months earlier, Tsarnaev, who moved with her family from Russia to Boston in 2002, and her son were both investigated by the FBI after being tipped off by Russian officials. At that time, however, the FBI concluded they were not involved with terrorism.

Tsarnaev, who has suggested that the Boston Marathon attacks were faked, and part of a “a really big play” in which paint was splashed on sidewalks to imitate blood, lashed out at the reports that she and Tamerlan had been added to the watchlist.

“It's all lies and hypocrisy,” Tsarnaev said from Dagestan. “I'm sick and tired of all this nonsense that they make up about me and my children. People know me as a regular person, and I've never been mixed up in any criminal intentions, especially any linked to terrorism.”

While Tamerlan was killed on April 19 in a shootout with police, Tsarnaev’s younger son, Dzhokhar, has since told FBI interrogators that the brothers committed the bombings and that he was recruited by Tamerlan to participate only a week or two before the attacks.

Still, the boys’ mother insists that they have been framed.

“You know what I think? I think now they will try to make my Dzhokhar guilty because they took away his voice, his ability to talk to the world... They did not want the truth to come out,” Tsarnaev told CNN on Wednesday.

Being in that database does not mean the U.S. government has evidence that links someone to terrorism, nor does it guarantee that those individuals are subjected to surveillance, security screening or travel restrictions.As of last year, there were approximately 745,000 names in the database.

Not long after Tsarnaev’s name was added to the terrorism list, she was picked up by police for a much less serious reason: shoplifting. In June of 2012, Tsarnaev was arrested Natick, Mass., and charged with stealing $1,624 worth of women's clothing from a Lord & Taylor department store, but failed to show up for a court appearance the following month.

While Tsarnaev and her husband, Anzor, have talked about returning to the United States to bury their eldest son and to visit Dzhokhar who is under arrest at Federal Medical Center Devens, 40 miles west of Boston, Tsarnaev (Zubeidat Tsarnaeva) could face arrest on the warrant that is still outstanding on the theft charge.

Tsarnaev continues to blame America for her family’s downfall.

“Why did I go there? Why?” Tsarnaev said through tears at a news conference on Thursday. “America took my kids away from me. I’m sure my kids were not involved in anything.”

The suspects’ father, however, has vowed to return to the U.S.

“I am going to the United States. I want to say that I am going there to see my son, to bury the older one,” Anzor Tsarnaev told reporters Thursday. “I don't have any bad intentions. I don't plan to blow up anything.”
