I don't see Tsarnaev as a very important world political, social or religious figure, terrorism at home may be more important to you Americans but for me there isn't much significance between a bombing on Boston or Baghdad. I can understand why you might have Osama Bin Laden on a cover since his atrocity was much greater in scale and meaning, shaped U.S (and world) policies, views and caused wars but to have an insignifact radical on the front seems to glorify him, even if the article isn't that at all but to have him on the cover means he's getting attention and coverage he doesn't deserve, in my opinion.
Again, I think the idea is that this man managed to infiltrate into the United States, come off as a respectable member of society for years, and then just go off and injure 100+ people in a bombing. It doesn't even have anything to do with Muslim extremists, if you think about it - it could be anyone. That's pretty scary, and to me, makes him worthy of a cover.
