Processing Distortion with Peter B. Collins: FBI Agent Who Killed Todashev Identified

Peter B. Collins Presents Journalist Russ Baker

In the 13 months since the Boston bombing events, WhoWhatWhy has stayed on the story--and challenged key contradictions in the official narrative, which is mostly shaped by strategic leaks from law enforcement. Russ Baker returns to detail the recent identification of FBI agent Aaron McFarlane as the shooter of Ibragim Todashev in Orlando last year. We discuss the double standard used by the FBI, which investigated itself and declared the shooting was justified. Baker asks "who's running the FBI?" and notes the remarkable lack of oversight by Congress.

*Russ Baker is founder and editor-in-chief of and the author of Family of Secrets: The Bush Dynasty, America’s Invisible Government and the Secret History of the Last Fifty Years.

    i cringe when you praise maddow – the only reason ppl like maddow cover such issues as FBI brutality is to curry favor and retain market share

    • Angela MacDonald says:

      I agree, Joshua, she is part of the divide and conquer strategy.

      • tonywicher says:

        Me too. I can’t stand Maddow – she’s a disgusting propagandist for the Zbigniew Brzezinski national security and Wall Street fake Democrats. She carries out his divide and conquer strategy the fake Democrat/Republican dichotomy and she never questions the national security state. Her job depends on it, and she loves her job. In the immortal words of Upton Sinclair, “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

    Just wondering whether any doctors out there have looked at the autopsy photos of Todoshev. ( google “autopsy photos, todoshev”) While at first glance they look pretty gruesome, I thought it odd that there seemed to be no sign of rigor mortis. When his body is lifted, it bends easily and his head droops to the side. His skin color shows no sign of “dependent lividity” (look it up). Also, the head wound from a hand gun at close range would have caused the deformation of his facial features, eyes etc., which is not apparent. And why is there no exit wound? Could it be that we are looking at pictures of a live person with fake sutures and a fake bullet wound to the head, and not a “stiff”. Just realistic moulage, like the rest of the Boston Bombing ‘victims’. Just wondering.

    • Also just like BFP, Who What Why sticks to facts and good questions, pointing out trouble with official explanations, while leaving out the speculation. I think Russ mentioned that in this interview, regarding the bin Laden raid.

  3. Good job, Peter B and Russ B. Thanks for explaining how Who What Why is funded at the end of the interview. That’s just what we need for all interviews with guests representing organizations. It helps to know who is foundation connected, for instance. Who What Why is not. They are more like BFP and deserve the support of individual viewers/listeners/readers.
