---------------------- Did the FBI executeIbragim Todashev? Heappears to have been shot seven times while being interviewedat home in Orlando, Florida, about his connection to one of theBoston bombing suspects. Among the shots was the assassin'shallmark: a bullet to the back of the head. What kind of aninterview was it?An irregular one. There was no lawyer present.It was notrecorded. By the time Todashev was shot, he had apparently been interrogated by three agents for five hours. And then? Whoknows? First, we were told,he lunged at them with a knife. Howhe acquired it, five hours into a police interview, was notexplained. How he posed such a threat while recovering from aknee operation also remains perplexing.
