"Piers Morgan Live, Rewind", Boston Bombings: Ties to Russia, a 9-11 connection, and a guilty mechanic

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.

  • Mitchell Selber: Russian warning should have been heeded

As the investigation into the reasoning and responsibility for the Boston Marathon bombings continues, on Tuesday evening, Piers Morgan asked guest Mitchell Silber if he felt clues about Tamerlan Tsarnaev had been missed. 

"Knowing this individual had been identified by the Russians as an individual that they were concerned about, travel overseas to a zone of conflict, then coming back to the United States. And on his Youtube page, which I have looked at, you can see the different videos that he identified as liking and certain extremist clerics who he identified as liking," said the former head of New York City Police Department Intelligence Division. "We would have been very reluctant to shut down an investigation on someone like that, because that's a very disconcerting set of facts."

  • Rezendes on 9.11.11: Investigators need to take another look

Meanwhile, Boston Globe reporter Michael Rezendes shared his opinion as to whether or not the recent acts of terror could be linked to the three murders in 2011 involving one of the elder Tsarnaev's best friends:

"We now know this murder probably took place on September 11. We know that Tamerlan had recently, perhaps a year before, become converted to a much more radical form of Islam. We know now that even though Brendan was a friend of his, he didn't show up at the funeral," Rezendes detailed. "We also know that he went to Russia for six months not too long afterwards. So you add all of these things together and it really looks like a case where there's just so much coincidence involved that investigators really need to take another look at it."

  • Gilberto Junior: Mad, sad, angry, and guilty

Also, as part of Tuesday's live program, Morgan spoke to Gilberto Junior, an auto mechanic who had recently seen Tamerlan, and admitted to expressing intense emotion in response to the incident:

"I still can't believe it. I'm sad. I'm mad. I'm angry. At the same time kind of feeling guilty, you know. Because if I knew what I know today back on Tuesday, you know, everything could be different. That's why I am feeling guilty with myself. I'm definitely feeling guilty."

    No, we tell the miserable S o B to get out because he promised he would leave if his perverted gun control nonsense failed to pass.
