article-2312496-196830D8000005DC-416_964x609Doku Umarov calls himself “Russia’s Bin Laden”

I’m working out the details of getting this next investigative article published, but people need to know now.

Excerpt:


Canadian Broadcasting reported,

“Last year, a charismatic rebel commander calling himself Said Buryatsky bragged on the rebel website Kavkaz Center he was training new suicide bombers. An ethnic Russian convert to Islam, Buryastky, born Alexander Tikhomirov, studied for several years in Saudi Arabia. …A new leader, Dokka Umarov, emerged declaring the new goal was to separate all six Muslim majority provinces in the Russian Caucasus from the Russian Federation, and create a new Islamic state ruled by Sharia law. Admired for his Saudi religious education Buryatsky quickly became Umarov’s chief ideologist. He also became a valued military strategist.”

Brian Glyn Williams next tells his Huffington Post readers, “It seems that the older Tamerlan then converted his brother Dzhokar to the fanatical cause”. Ah. But, here is where we must insist on a full disclosure from Mr. Brian Glyn Williams. You see it is Williams’ own personal relationship with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, over several years and via numerous email communications concerning the younger Tsarnaev’s Chechen roots, that alerted me to this topic in the first place.

I hope I didn’t contribute to it,” said Mr. Williams on April 19th, in the wake of the bombing revelations (South Coast Today). “That kid and his brother identified with the Chechen struggle.” Williams is identified as “Dr. Brian Glyn Williams” and no mention of his CIA or Jamestown Foundation connections appears in the article.

What does appear however demands some scrutiny. Williams hooked up with Dzhokhar Tsarnaev when the latter was still in high school and 17 years old, according to South Coast Today reporter Steve Urbon.

“Williams, whose classes on the War on Terror are routinely packed, obliged by exchanging emails with the then-17-year-old student [Dzhokhar]…As Williams put it, an ancient civilization was being wiped away. …Williams shot me an email. I phoned him and at one point I heard a rare twinge of worry in his voice. “I hope I didn’t contribute to it. … [Dzhokhar] was learning his Chechen identity, identifying with the diaspora and identifying with his homeland. … He wanted to learn more about Chechnya, who the fighters were, who the commanders were. I sort of gave him background.”

Well, the commanders were, and are, Doku Umarov, Said Buryatsky and a distinguished gentleman named Shamil Basayev. Basayev arranged for 850 hostages to be taken at a theater in Moscow in 2002, demanding Russia give up the province of Chechnya and pull out. During the siege 130 civilians died as well as all 40 of Basayev’s armed terrorists.

2nd CIA connection to the Boston bombing, source, South Coast Today, Steve Urbon:

“…one of the top experts on Chechnya, UMass Dartmouth’s Brian Glyn Williams.

That was two years ago. The assignment was to have each student in the very diverse class research their own ethnicity and write about it. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, whose family fled the horrors of the Russian occupation, was about to learn about some harrowing things he escaped from at a very young age.”

The entire article is one-sided and guided by William’s CIA view of the conflict (Chechens can’t be terrorists, and are allied to CIA objectives).  Even the actual terrorism in Chechnya is dismissed later on.

“Williams, whose classes on the War on Terror are routinely packed, obliged by exchanging emails with the then-17-year-old student [Dzhokhar Tsarnaev].

There was a lot to read about. Especially since the Russians retook the tiny separatist republic, there are stories of mass killings, death camps, mass graves, torture, destruction.

There were retaliatory strikes inside Russia, including a hostage drama in a Moscow theater. Russia in the end sent 100,000 troops to surround Chechnya to keep it under their thumb.

As Williams put it, an ancient civilization was being wiped away.

…Williams shot me an email. I phoned him and at one point I heard a rare twinge of worry in his voice. “I hope I didn’t contribute to it. That kid and his brother identified with the Chechen struggle,” he said.

…But Williams recalled the student clearly, though the two [ALLEGEDLY] never met and communicated by email, Williams sending him links to academic papers he’s published and books he recommended.

“He was learning his Chechen identity, identifying with the diaspora and identifying with his homeland,” he said.

“He wanted to learn more about Chechnya, who the fighters were, who the commanders were. I sort of gave him background.”

“Sort of.”  Gotta love the sort of.

“If there is trauma in the homeland, I think some in the diaspora become radicalized and that causes them to resort to terror,” Williams said.

…In Williams’ view, Chechnya has an undeserved reputation as a hatchery of terrorists, including al-Qaida and the Taliban.

“Foreign fighters did come in and radicalized people,” Williams said. For some, “they transformed the form of war from a national one to a full-blown terrorist jihad.”

But he charges there is no basis for an al-Qaida link, or even a Taliban link, for that matter.”

This is a clear lie.  The NSFW piece destroys William’s credibility and casts him as a disinformation artist for the CIA.

In a book to be published next year, “Inferno in the Caucus: The Chechen insurgency and the Mirage of Al Qaeda,” [Brian Glynn Williams of the Central Intelligence Agency] says that no matter what the Chechens are, “they are not al-Qaida. Repeat: They are not al-Qaida.”

Biran Glyn Williams “profile” from an interview by Andrew Gaboury, March 13, 2013:

 “His work has taken him to London to consult with Scotland Yard and to Afghanistan to work for the Central Intelligence Agency.Williams was tasked with helping law enforcement and intelligence agencies understand the motivations and behaviors of suicide bombers. He is of the mind that while Islam is a subtext for much of the violence and terrorism in the region, it’s not the sole explanation. His findings about suicide bombings in Afghanistan were informed by his understanding of tribal identities as much as fervor for the Jihadist movement. He came to these conclusions after being sent to Afghanistan by the CIA to perform firsthand research on these types of attacks. This type of fieldwork is unusual for most academics but especially for historians,who are content to let some time pass before trying to understand it’s (sic) role in the narrative. “

Are you fucking kidding me?

NSFWCORP, Mark Ames (read NOW before Paywall goes up in 1 day):

“Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s high school project “mentor,” Brian Glyn Williams. Brian Glyn Williams happens to work for the CIA, on Islamic suicide bombers, Chechnya, and jihadi terrorism. Williams is also an associate professor of history at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, the university where 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was enrolled, and where he spent many of his last free hours between the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, and his arrest on April 19.”

“I hope I didn’t contribute to it. That kid and his brother identified with the Chechen struggle,” he said.
