How do a failed boxer and failing college student become terrorists

One of the interests of the Boston Marathon Bomber Dzokhar Tsarnaev is someone - or something - called "Ms M". The only Ms M I could find on the internet is this website of an online children's teacher who taught kids who were speakers of foreign languages. If this is his Ms M then he is obviously a young man whose intellectual growth may have been suspended in a happier time. Clearly the FBI has an extensive file on Tamerlan but the Wikipedia entry on him and his brother probably tell us as much as they will for now, having already lied once - and perhaps twice - to protect either their sources or their reputation, or both. The coming trial of Dzohkar will, like all trials in a jury system, become a judgement of the judgers as well as the judged. Dzohkar Tsarnaev's apparent corruptibility will not be a factor for his prosecutors. And it is unlikely his court-appointed defenders will play the "victim card" for him given the high profile nature of this trial. Nonetheless, we will see for the first time how our domestic civilian justice system handles such a case.
