READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Whether you fell asleep early, stayed out too late, or simply want to watch it again, we realize it's not always possible to get your entire "Piers Morgan Live" fix from television. As an answer to this, we offer the below labor of love – "Piers Morgan Live, Rewind" – dedicated and designed to getting you caught up and connected to the conversation.
On Monday evening, on the day alleged Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was formally charged by the Justice Department earlier in the afternoon, "Piers Morgan Live" invited Deputy Director of the Russia and Eurasia Program at Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Matthew Rojansky, to the program.
An expert on national security and nuclear-weapon policies in Russia and in Eastern Europe, Rojansky spoke about the first bombing suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev who was killed on Friday morning.
Allegedly the "mastermind" of the bombing attack, the late Tsarnaev brother spent six months in Russia, staying in both Dagestan and Chechnya in 2011. The Russian authorities had alerted the FBI on Tsarnaev's whereabouts and activities prompting analysts such as Rojansky to wonder if the FBI "missed a huge opportunity."
"The Russians turned us on to this in 2011," noted Rojansky, "And that there was no further discussion of this guy in 2012 or 2013, especially after he spent six months in Russia including in Dagastan, maybe visiting Chechnya, that absolutely raises red flags."
Also on Monday evening, attorney Alan Dershowitz returned to the program and gave his insight on the recent legal developments in the Boston Marathon bombing case.
In response to Sen. Lindsey Graham's call for the U.S. government to label Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as an "enemy combatant", Dershowitz noted "it's not permissible under the law. You can't treat an American citizen who is accused of committing an American crime against mostly Americans citizens in Boston as an enemy combatant."
"It would turn our country into a nation of martial law," said Dershowitz.
Julian Pollard, former sparing partner to Tamerlan Tsarnaev joined the program and spoke to Piers Morgan about his impression of the older Tsarnaev brother.
"In 2009, when I met him, he was a really flashy guy," said Polland about the first time he met Tsarnaev. "Very confident in his skills as a boxer. He wasn't afraid to share that."
"The second year I met him, he was a lot - talked a lot about his faith," observered Pollard. "He just seemed humble. He talked only about his faith."
