Tonight: The roles of Islam, and the radicalization, of the brothers Tsarnaev

As last week's Boston Marathon bombings – and subsequent manhunt for the men responsible – continues to dominate the news cycle and polarize the nation, this evening "Piers Morgan Live" welcomes a handful of guests tasked with sharing the latest updates, and providing context and insight into the latest incident of domestic terrorism.

On the heels of a fascinating appearance Monday evening tonight Matthew Rojanksy will rejoin the program. The deputy director of the Russia & Eurasia Program at the Carneigie Endowment for International Peace, Rojanksy will speak to the notion that Islamic extremists, and Chechen ties, contributed to the radicalization of the suspected bombers, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

In addition, Iman Suhaib Webb will speak live with Piers Morgan, offering the perspective of the Islamic Society of Boston. As both Tsarnaev brothers attended a mosque in Cambridge, Mass., Webb will explain how leadership within the Islamic community would respond if asked to hold a funeral for the late Tamerlan Tsarnaev.

Meanwhile, with drama over television news only heightened since last week's incident, this evening Brian Stelter will join the program live, sharing details of the culture within an industry often referred to as the "TV Wars." The author of the new book "Top of the Morning," and a media reporter at "The New York Times," Stelter is expected to share various anecdotes and inside reporting that lead to the creation of his non-fiction publication.

Tune in this evening at 9 as Morgan advances the story of the Boston bombings, while also inviting Stelter to share his take on all things television and news.

    Just want to point out: If you kill this guy who is a 19 year old you create a hero!......no need for followers!!!!! that's for sure
    keep him in prison for the rest of his life..that is enough torture I think.An eye for an eye is not a true Christian answer.Thanks for all you do for humanity Piers!

      I guess by putting him in jail, he wouldn't radicalize others? Can't be much of hero if your dead.

    "You must remember how many kids in England were being tormented during the War in Iraq. They were picking kids
    off the streets promnising them an income better than living off the dole. Radicals are kids who are sick of living under their own system. Mercenary's??

    Can a five year old kill anyone with a pressure cooker?
    What an absurd argument the last guest made.

      You should be more concerned with the way that Mr. Morgan referred to US citizens. One of his final words to the senator was that," you." people keep thinking that way! I took that as meaning not just the politicians, but the US population as a whole. What I guess I'm trying to say is that Mr. Morgan will only be happy when he gets his way on the gun control issue. Mr. Morgan's final comment asking the senator to come back after the next mass shooting is ludicrous, as we all know that sooner or later, regardless of any type of gun control it will happen! It is unfortunate that it will happen again, but when Mr. Morgan gives it so much airtime, he is just encouraging the next mentally ill or angry loner to try to beat the last guys record! Let's get a real news reporter on CNN who is willing to do the news and not sensationalize these cowardly acts!

    Hey Piers,
    What part of Europe are you from? The part we kicked your ass or the part we saved your ass. There are only two parts. We did it with our guns either way.

      This Morgan guy has no business asking questions of anybody, I don't think he could hold numbers up very well either, his comments to the gentleman from Tennessee was incredible. Morgan does need to go away and quit bothering the Nation, or the few who do watch that show. Morgan, Arnett, Jane Fonda, these are all people who have an agenda and pee in their pants every time someone is standing between them and the pot. The kid from Tennessee got ol' p.morgan's panties all wadded up. p. morgan sit up straight in the chair, quit acting like a noot, and write a book about Thatcher or something worth while . Also why the hell are you here on Chicken Noodle News talking to Americans about our stuff.(Oh well, we have a presidente who wasn't born here either) . Go back to your own country and make stupid comments, we don't want you here. Why are you on the air and not some VJ or journalist who grew up here and knows what Americans think and how we were brought up and not some snivling little brit – brat who grew up living under r a King and Queen, I THINK YOU WERE TURNED INTO A NOOOT......and you didn't get better. So you are FIRED , go away now and quit bothering everyone. ...................

        The only question Piers Morgan needs to be asking is when the flight to England leaves, and what seat does he have.

        Piers, who the f do "YOU" think "YOU people" are? We KNOW who "WE" are. GET OUT NOW!

    Just watched Piers Morgan's interview with Senator Campfield. Piers ended the interview by telling Senator Campfield that they would speak again after the next mass shooting, and that "It would be done to someone like you." Does Piers know something we don't, because that sounds a lot like a threat to me...

      The Senator definitely got PM'S goat,,,,,,what a pansy way to end an interview. PM'S not a very good interviewer, i wonder who the monkey in his ear is, Wow, just noticed something, when i type PM'S (Piers Morgan 's ) could also mean

    Piers!! You are the best!! I love your show and your no-nonsense way of shoveling the manure right back at the cows who are dumping. Your brief but pointed interview with that loud mouthed Senator had me high giving with my teenage son over inviting him back after the next mass shooting. When are these right wing hypocrites going to get their heads out of the sand? Thank you Piers for trying every night to knock some sensibility and humanity back into the publics hearts.

    Thank you for continuing to present your position on gun control...the only sensible position to take. Your guest tonight is so out of touch with what is happening in our country and hopefully your voice of reason will resonate with many others. Only when those for gun control get as passionate as the NRA will we begin to see change.

      Actually, it's about time someone stood up and told Morgan just exactly how stupid his agenda is. Obviously though, Morgan's too stupid to understand what he was saying in his allegory. We need more people in DC like this man.

    I trust Piers – he speaks from the heart. The gun lovers have to understand the insanity can't go on. Piers has integrity and guts. If there is no compromise I think Piers would go door to door and take every lousy gun in our country to bring sanity back. We'll support you Piers – keep it up, Grab the guns Piers, throw them in the river and give us our country back!

      Just read the bottom half of my reply to Nancy near the top of the page. It is not the everyday regular gun owner who does not want some sort of action on this issue. Some of them fear the slippery slope, but unfortunately, background checks do not check your mental stability! Better yet, read the whole reply to Nancy above.

    "I'll leave this with you now,Pierse, just incase I forget another time. Do you ever have any recolection of the 'Rag-Day's in England?? or was that long before your time?? We were told to keep out of the City (my own) so as not to get caught up in the aftermath of University Students running wild about the town. It was all in jest, but political jest. I remember those that stood on tea chests about the city on Sunday mornings: preaching their sermons on just about everything. We (teenagers) used to go just for the spectacle to jeer at them. That is 'Radicalism and we loved it!!"

      Instead of shooting off your mouth about me being concerned about the victims, you should really pay attention to what is going on in the real world! I have concern for all those that died and are injured due to this incident! Just imagine if it was one of your relatives what you would be willing to do to get information from the perpetrators! I draw the lines at a certain point as far as what you call torture, etc. but if it was one of my family members there would be very little that I would not try! Maybe contact some of the people who had family members die or were injured and see what they think! You're obviously just a bleeding heart. I guess you're probably okay with the fact that they arrested the wrong person and almost railroaded him regarding the ricin letters also!
