How a doctor's daughter from Rhode Island married Tamerlan Tsarnaev

This is one of the things that has bothered me about the Marathon terrorists: How an all-American doctor's daughter from Rhode Island ended up married to Tamerlan Tsarnaev. London's Daily Mail tries to supply some answers.
One classmate who remembers Katherine from those early days said: ‘The thing that’s so shocking is that there was nothing at all that made Katherine different.

‘Her parents are nice people, her sisters are great girls. But she met this guy, I guess, and everything changed.’

Katherine was a student at Sussex University, Boston, when she met Tsaraev, then a promising boxer and athlete.

It was during that time that she converted and her youthful priorities appear to have changed as she left in 2010 without graduating.

By then her relationship with Tsaraev was intense. Not even his arrest for violently assaulting her in 2009 could change that.

According to Cambridge City Police Department reports of the incident which took place in July at the Massachusetts home she once shared with Tsaraev, when interviewed she described Tsaraev as ‘a very nice man.’

Certainly he was a man whose influence on Katherine's life would prove profound.

There is only one odd and unsettling inclusion in her own entry in her graduation High School Yearbook.

Asked to provide a quotation she settled on one that would surely chime with the extremist views of her late husband.

‘Don’t take anything for granted,’ she advises, before quoting a line from David Bowie's 'Quicksand': ‘Don’t believe in yourself, don’t deceive with belief,’ the baffling lines run. ‘Knowledge comes from death’s release.’

In an interview with her mother that I saw, her mother said something to the effect of "Tamerlan Tsarnaev clearly wasn't the person we thought he was." I suspect strongly that he was exactly the person that Katherine's parents thought he was, and that they have been living and are continuing to live every parent's nightmare.

Read the whole thing.

Now the question is whether this dope has enough brains remaining to run away from the scourge which Islam is.
