Who is Misha?

The older bombing suspect may have been "brainwashed" by a friend from Cambridge, Mass. named Misha, says an uncle. Brian Todd reports.

    I do not believe in character 'Misha' . It could not be name of Armenian man. Who has been lived in Russia will understand what i am talking about. Misha is not Armenian name!!!

    Are the authorities looking around Malden, MA for Misha where the cabbie said he picked up
    the two suspects. And they had their backpacks and were heavy, so assuming bombs inside.
    Maybe they got help from Misha in making bombs in the Malden area. Check mosques in Malden for
    this guy.?

    It is ridiculous that the shadowy rumor about the "Misha" character, based on pure heresay and what may just as well be a pure concoction by relatives of the suspects, is enjoying hot media discussions, particularly the ludicrous statement that he may be of Armenian descent. Is it intended to distract from the Chechen connection by creating an Armenian diversion? Giving such a statement credibility only shows how unsubstantiated remarks can creep through all boundaries of logic to tickle the curiosity of the gullible public.

      Everything that you hear from the media unless you see and hear it firsthand is a hearsay. So, it is up to you to gather what you hear and make sense to it, later on what is credible and not will be more clear.

    Where did they get their guns?? Sean Collier was killed by guns, right? How did they obtain their guns? Can immigrants legally purchase guns? Please say it isn't true!!!

      Immigrants or not, they were American citizens and so yes, they can buy guns.
