The Truth Needs No Help

He who corrects a scoffer gets dishonor for himself, and he who reproves a wicked man gets insults for himself. Do not reprove a scoffer, or he will hate you, reprove a wise man and he will love you. Give instruction to a wise man and he will be still wiser, teach a righteous man and he will increase his learning.
Proverbs 9: 7-9

Two photographs used in my last post caused a bit of backlash:

New photoshopped  vs original pic of Jahar running awayI have now been educated on the possibility – make that probability – that unscrupulous use of Adobe Photoshop has taken place on both sides of the debate regarding Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s guilt or innocence. This is a real eye-opener for someone of my generation.

It makes me sad that we have reached a point where one can no longer trust a photograph meant to preserve an image forever. After a bit of back-and-forth on Twitter I intended to post yet another photo depicting Dzhokhar running from the scene, rounding the corner of a building along with many others, without his backpack.

I intended to do that until I realized two things: 1) I have already posted that photo, albeit a close-up and 2) it doesn’t matter.

Whether Dzhokhar left his backpack lying on the ground, swinging from a lamppost or took it with him in his hand or on his back makes no difference. The color of his backpack precludes it, by the government’s own evidence, from being the one carrying the second bomb.

For that reason, I could care less where it ended up and neither need anyone else.

I would not be surprised at all to learn that Dzhokhar did indeed leave his backpack at his feet when he ran from the scene. I believe many, in their panic, left belongings behind. After all, a man’s wallet is usually in his back pocket. Backpacks usually transport non-essentials, items other than money, credit cards and IDs.

If I were anywhere near where a bomb or two have just detonated and my wallet was on my person, that backpack with my water and skittles would be of little consequence as I made my getaway. And I wouldn’t be alone in the decision to part company with said bag.

So now I have been made aware that Photoshop can call into question a photograph. In future, I may stick to blogging about transcripts and scripture, two things I do not expect to be called into question.

I shake my head at the possible motives and lack of character of many involved in this terrible event and its aftermath. The truth needs no help. Neither side needs to or should want to fabricate evidence. And yet it is obvious this has been done.

I am confident of this: God knows what really happened that day and will, in His way and His timing, reveal all. It is as simple as that. Those who do not acknowledge His providential involvement in the affairs of mankind may mock and scoff. In the end, their unbelief will have no affect on the accomplishment of His will in this world and in this case.

Winston Churchill said no crime is so great as daring to excel. I am ready to take that dare. An unexpected and somewhat unexplainable compassion for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has drawn me out of my comfort zone.

  1. Good post Lynn! It’s a shame that photos can no longer be trusted, but someone knows the truth. In this case it absolutely does not matter if Dzhokhar left carrying his backpack or not. Hundreds of people left their bags after the bombing. It is proof of nothing. I believe Richard Demma’s reply speaks volumes. Thank you Richard! There is so much that points to Dzhokhar’s innocence and nothing that points to guilt and over time it will come out. These corrupt gov scenario’s cannot be contained forever and eventually the truth will prevail. In the meantime, God is busy protecting and helping Dzhokhar, which is most important right now. Your blog is important and there is enough ammunition to keep you going for years. Can’t wait for the next one.

  2. Great blog Lynn. Don’t let go of blogs that show proof evidence was tampered with. That is what keeps a reader at the edge of their seat. You are a fantastic writer. With your writing skills and the truth…Jahars innocence can spread far and wide all over the countries who read your blog. I loved it Lynn!!! Great job! Plus you kept the same pic…lol. Bet that blew a few tantrums..😅

  3. Lynn, check out the scenario of the London Underground bombings – in which young intelligence assets were recruited to take part in a bombing drill by walking into the tube stations with backpacks and then leaving them there, as part of the drill to test the system – could the CCTV cameras pick up the drops, did on site personnel notice and when, did passersby take notice and alert authorities? This is a scenario that was openly discussed regarding the Tsarnaev brothers early on – that they thought they had been recruited as part of a bombing drill, and – as with London – given their drop locations only on the day of the event – by cell phone. This is the classic way to set someone up! For some reason, this narrative has gotten lost in all the deluge of theories and disinformation. This is why its a moot point whether they carried their backpacks with them after the bombings or not. It doesn’t matter for more reasons than the color of the packs. And of course, this alternative narrative was in no way addressed in the trial and also accounts for the fierce denials from authorities – all evidence to the contrary- that there was in fact a bombing drill taking place that day. Factor in this possibility, and suddenly so many anomalies – particularly their behavior in the first days after the bombings – make perfect sense.

    I continue to follow – and be inspired by – all of your wonderful posts, even though I’ve been a bit out of the loop lately. God bless.

    1. Wow – Richard… Unbelievable information you present here! I thank you for it! Another thing about the truth – even if it is crazy, the craziness still makes sense and what you present here does… And it not only would explain the brothers’ behavior after the bombing but that of the authorities as well. They are obviously fighting hard to protect big secrets, even killing for them. What you present here is very possibly the explanation for what happened. Now God needs to reveal the who and the why. And He will… It was great hearing from you!
