The New Hampshire state legislator who has claimed the federal government was behind the Boston Marathon bombing has emailed her colleagues with what she says is evidence to support her allegations.
State Rep. Stella Tremblay (R-Auburn) on Wednesday used her state account to email the entire 424-member state legislature a message titled "Follow Up Reports," which included a series of links that she says showcase why the federal government is behind the April attack. The links include the video that Tremblay has said initially drew her attention to the issue, along with videos from conservative commentators regarding ties between an uncle of the bombing suspect and a retired CIA officer. Tremblay told her colleagues that she is seeking more information.
"Have you seen ANY main stream media doing a follow up on these stories? I have not," Tremblay wrote. "I just connect the dots. Apparently, it is very dangerous to seek truth, or ask questions."
Tremblay first made her claims in April, when she posted on Glenn Beck's Facebook page that she believed the federal government was behind the attack. She later reiterated those claims and questioned whether Jeff Bauman, a bombing victim who lost both legs in the attack, was actually injured, because he was not "screaming in agony." She later apologized to Bauman but said she wanted to visit him to see if he did in fact lose his legs.
In the email, Tremblay leads off with a YouTube video from retired Army Lt. Col. Roy Potter, in which he claims the attack was a way to distract attention from a pending indictment against President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush. "Is there a possibility that this man may be telling the truth?" Tremblay wrote of Potter.
Among the others videos Tremblay listed were a CNN report on amputees who train with troops and a PBS special on the so-called terrorism-industrial complex. She also cited a YouTube video about a Boston bombing "hoax" that claims that an alleged amputee actor is "exposed" at the bombing; she also linked to a post at boilingfrogspost.com that noted the relationship between the bombing suspects' uncle Ruslan Tsarni and his former father-in-law, retired CIA officer Graham Fuller.
Tremblay also posted a link to a blog that questions whether Tsarni could've financed the attacks, claiming that the U.S. Agency for International Development, which employed Tsarni at one point, is a front for CIA operatives.
It is unclear why Tremblay, a second-term lawmaker with ties to the tea party, chose to email the entire legislature about this issue. Tremblay did not return a request for comment. She has also removed her phone number from her legislative homepage and another phone number listed for the representative has been disconnected.
Tremblay has made waves before for her emails to the entire legislature. Last year, she emailed colleagues with a link to a satirical video that she said showed proof that Obama was not born in the United States. Tremblay also made headlines earlier this year when she claimed that former President Woodrow Wilson backed Adolf Hitler, even though Wilson died before Hitler's rise to power. Tremblay's history adviser David Johnson then claimed that former President Abraham Lincoln dissolved the U.S. government and that Queen Elizabeth II actually controlled the federal government.
