(Newser) – As the rest of the country tensely waited for word of who the Boston Marathon bomber or bombers might be, one of the suspects was having what appears to have been a very typical Wednesday. A school official at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was a sophomore who played intramural soccer, says the 19-year-old worked out at the gym and slept in his dorm room that night. Officials got the information about his whereabouts thanks to card swipes, the Boston Globe reports. (CNN says Tsarnaev was on campus every day after the attack, and even attended classes.)

But before going to sleep, Tsarnaev apparently went to a party with some of his soccer buddies, according to a student who saw him there. "He was just relaxed," she says. Another student, who says she and her friends used to study and hang out with Tsarnaev, says he hadn't been around campus for the two weeks leading up to the bombing, but adds that she found his involvement in the attack hard to believe. But a third student says Tsarnaev acted oddly at a party he showed up to, uninvited, last fall, and says she and her roommates "didn't invite him over after that."

I find it hard to believe that this attack had anything to do with Islam. If he was supposed to be some kind of fundamentalist, why was he dating? Why was he going to college parties? It doesn't add up. I'm not saying he didn't do it. But this is reminiscent of those 9/11 hijackers visiting a strip club before their attacks. They clearly weren't concerned with Islam in the way that the media consistently portrayed them to be -- their goals were political (namely, getting American troops off of Saudi Arabian land and punishing the U.S. for its assistance to Israel). I wonder what Tsarnaev's goals were.

Kind of a coincidence..this last week we have witnessed flooding, tornadoes earthquakes..on top of all of this that is going down with West, TX and Boston. TBQH, I really do feel it is a government cover up of sorts. They certainly practiced Martial's Law and the people abided...WTF.

Not good signs in this guy though. Blowing up bombs & killing people at a marathon on Monday & then just another day on Wednesday, not good signs.
