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. “

Ruslan Tsarni

Uncle Ruslan Tsarni’s Organization May Have Funded Terrorists

921d6adc34c9faf1494114a76c670b92Islamic terrorists with many “foreign fighters” destroy much of Chechnya in the 1999-2000 War

Ruslan “Tsarni,” formerly “Tsarnaev,” was married to the daughter of top CIA “strategist” Graham E. Fuller. This is censored by US corporate news, and this brings up glaring questions as to why. Daniel Hopsicker, investigative reporter at Madcow Mornnig News, has uncovered documents linking Ruslan Tsarni, the uncle of the two alleged Boston Marathon bombers, to a Chechen organization that has ties to terrorist funding. Ruslan Tsarni links to the Boston bombing, the CIA and to a known terrorist funding front called Benevolence International, which was shut down by the US Treasury Department and Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald.
Uncle Ruslan Tsarni’s Organization May Have Funded Terrorists

Joe Giambrone

Why isn’t the Boston bombing suspects’ uncle Ruslan Tsarnaev / Tsarni considered a “person of interest” by the FBI?  Or, heavens forbid, a “suspect” in the Boston Marathon bombing plot?

Is it because of his work with State Department and CIA connected USAID around the Caucasus region?  Is it because he was formerly married to the daughter of a very high-ranking CIA official?  Is it because this high-ranking CIA official, Graham E. Fuller, was deeply involved in “Islamic extremism,” for which he is a noted author and strategist?  Or that Graham Fuller was CIA station chief in Kabul Afghanistan?  Could it be because his former father-in-law, Graham Fuller,

“…served 20 years in the Foreign Service, mostly the Muslim World, working in Germany, Turkey, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, North Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong. In 1982 he was appointed the National Intelligence Officer for Near East and South Asia at CIA, and in 1986 Vice-Chairman of the National Intelligence Council at CIA, with overall responsibility for all national level strategic forecasting.”
Speaker Bio – Graham E. Fuller

Could it be related to Fuller’s paper that launched the Iran/Contra activities?  Or could it simply be Graham Fuller’s role in “strategic forecasting” both then and now?

Whatever the reasons, the Federal Bureau of Investigation should surely be interested in a little organization that Mr. Ruslan Tsarni set up in 1995 called the “Congress of Chechen International Organization[s].”

Why should FBI care about an old “Congress” of Chechen organizations?  There are several reasons known so far, perhaps many more, to look into this group and its activities.

America’s Rottweiler, Daniel Hopsicker, has sunk his fangs into Ruslan Tsarnaev’s history, and he doesn’t appear to be letting go any time soon.  Uncle Ruslan became the darling of the US press by immediately denouncing the two brothers as “losers” and even claiming that their brains were “stolen” by some radical Islamic cleric whom he had never met or spoken to.

But Uncle Ruslan Tsarni/Tsarnaev’s work for USAID and his close connections to one of the top CIA strategists and a boastful expert on “Islamic extremism,” should cause us to take a very close look at his own actions.  A quick search of USAID’s longtime ties to the CIA turns up this gem of a document, which once was “top secret,” but now declassified tells us:

“Memorandum For: Deputy Director of Operations

Subject: Joint CIA/USAID Terrorist (Technical) Investigations Course #7 (English Language)…

  1. This effort is a joint CIA/USAID training program for foreign police/security personnel…”

This was dated March 7th of 1973 and is hosted right on the USAID website (at least at the time of writing).

Bloomberg told us that Ruslan Tsarni “…was a legal consultant to a U.S. company contracted under USAID in a program of economic assistance for Kysrgyzstan.”  Hopsicker exposed that Uncle Ruslan Tsarni is also a Halliburton connected oil man who profited generously from Kazakhstan’s oil fields.

Well don’t the coincidences just keep piling up around this guy?  Are we in the trillions to one range yet?

Two students from Kazakhstan were charged Wednesday morning for “destroying” evidence related to Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, including fireworks without the gunpowder.  Destroying evidence?  Or planting?  They don’t seem to have “destroyed” it very well.

What would motivate some “friends” to go and tamper with evidence on the biggest terrorism case since 9/11?  This seems out of the ordinary activity, to say the least.  A third man is also facing criminal charges in this evidence tampering and Obstruction of Justice.

Be that as it may, the US media has gone dark on Mr. Graham Fuller and his undeniable relationship with Mr. Ruslan Tsarni/Tsarnaev.  Not one corporate news outlet has covered this Hopsicker initiated piece despite it being incontrovertible.  Fuller wrote about Ruslan in his memoir, Three Truths and a Lie.  Not only does Mr. Fuller’s name link directly, by marriage, to the Tsarnaev clan, his home address links directly to a Chechen front organization used to funnel funds to named terrorists.

Here is where the plot coagulates.  Hopsicker was not satisfied with a failed marriage.  He went deeper.  The Congress of Chechen International Organization[s] assisted one Shaikh Fathi in 1996 by using a “charity” called Benevolence International to get “aid” to the Chechen freedom fighters.  All fine and well, except for a couple of years later we have 9/11, and then American prosecutors like Patrick Fitzgerald begin turning over stones.

One of those slimy, moss covered stones leads to Shaikh Fathi.  The Fitzgerald indictment reads: “Sheikh Fathi was a major conduit for providing material support to the Chechen rebels.”  The indictment was against Benevolence International.  That “charity” was shut down after the US Treasury Department determined that they were “financiers of terrorism.”

The document that Hopsicker acquired, on Congress of Chechen International Organization[s] letterhead, is potentially the Achilles Heel of the entire covert war in Chechnya against the Russians.  Beyond the Boston bombing, this exposes a Chechen front group created by the son in law of a top CIA official that used this same CIA official’s home address on the official application when Ruslan set up the front!  This may be considered “poor tradecraft.”  A bad decision in 1995 may have just exposed the entire CIA connected terrorism nexus to the world.  And not one US “news” outlet will say one word about it.

Dozens of reporters gave open microphones to Ruslan Tsarni/Tsarnaev when he denounced his two nephews as “losers” and that he wished they had “never existed.”  But what a contrast in news coverage now that this man Ruslan Tsarni himself is found to be very close to the Central Intelligence Agency, since 1995.

It seems as though the name “Graham Fuller” cannot be published in connection to this case, in any corporate media organization in the United States, nor in Europe  [5/10/13 Correction: exactly 1 entity, The Daily Mail UK reported it].  This is essentially Orwellian manipulation of the public, and should be considered the top censored news story of the year, and perhaps of the decade.

Another international terrorist threat warning concerned Tamerlan Tsarnaev, this time in 2012 from Saudi Arabia.  A Saudi official told Daily Mail UK about a letter to US intelligence and that they wouldn’t even allow Tamerlan Tsarnaev to enter Saudi Arabia last December, 2012, for his desired pilgrimage to Mecca.  The Saudi intelligence did not just repeat what Russia had said, and instead the warning was “based on human intelligence developed independently in Yemen.”  Apparently the Saudi Foreign Minister and National Security Chief then met with Barack Obama in the Oval Office to discuss it early in 2013.  Denied, denied, denied.

The usually reliable Israeli intelligence website DebkaFile suggested two things about this Boston Marathon bombing case that were not readily apparent at the time.  These were 1) that the brothers (or older brother) were recruited by US intelligence, and that 2) they turned on their recruiters as double agents for Jihad.

The second part is speculative.  But the first part suggests more detailed knowledge of the Tsarnaevs and of covert activities in the Caucasus.  Most of the data concerning Uncle Ruslan were public and accessible, just waiting for someone like Hopsicker to piece it together.  The freakish response of the FBI to Tamerlan Tsarnaev, despite international terrorist threat warnings, suggests something odd about this case.  While double-agents are not unique and this has precedents, such as Ali Mohamad, we still have no proof that the brothers actually committed the bombings.  They are being tried in the media, piece by piece, without legal recourse to challenge the accusations or the so-called evidence against them.

Russian news outlet Izvestia provides another piece of the puzzle, and it supports the Israeli claim that the brothers were recruited by US intelligence.  On Tamerlan’s trip to Russia in 2012 (Jan. to July), there is a report by Georgian intelligence that Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended “training” at the Jamestown Foundation, connected with the Caucasus Fund (corrected 5/3/13).  All have ties to CIA.  As for Jamestown Foundation, guess who gave a keynote speech in 2008 there called “Turkey & the Caucasus after Georgia”?

Only your favorite “strategist,” the man whose name US media dare not speaketh.  What a little tiny world we’ve inherited.

I’m collecting these articles for a later post to summarize what is known about the Boston Marathon bombing, which is looking a hell of a lot like some kind of false flag variant.

Boston Tragedy: Time for Reckoning
Andrei AKULOV 

Doku Umarov is known as “Russia’s bin Laden” and is an internationally wanted Chechen terrorist leader.  He owns a website called the Kavkaz Center, that one of the alleged Boston Marathon bombers, Tamerlan Tsarnaev had subscribed to.

“On April 19 the Finnish Anti-Fascist Committee reported that the Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev subscribed to Kavkaz Center terrorist site. (1) The publication offers robust evidence to prove the fact.

…In 2011 the UN Security Council listed Doku Umarov as a terrorist. The organization he heads, the Emarat Kavkaz, was listed as a terrorist organization, associated with Al-Qaeda. The Kavkaz Center is its mouthpiece, described by Umarov himself as «the official information organ of the Emarat Kavkaz». In Finland the «Center» enjoys quite a comfortable standing being located in downtown Helsinki…”

“…Kavkaz Center has been operating for several years without any kind of reaction from the government or officials of Finland… “

The common theme with nations that tolerate Chechen terrorists on their soil, as Sibel Edmonds has pointed out, has been NATO, or close bilateral ties to the United States.  Finland is not quite a NATO member, but…

“NATO’s relations with Finland are conducted through the Partnership for Peace framework, which Finland joined in 1994. NATO and Finland actively cooperate on peace and security operations and have developed practical cooperation in many other areas, including education and training and the development of military capabilities.”
Nato’s own website

This is a consistent picture.  A picture of policy in action.

Care to look beyond network newsbites?  There are several spy movies in this article by Sibel Edmonds on the Chechen terrorists and Russia’s covert espionage to assassinate them…

USA: The Creator & Sustainer of Chechen Terrorism

Yes, America.  You should really face what your own government has been busily doing in that part of the world now.  Deliberate ignorance is immoral.  To claim that this is a democracy and then to choose to be ignorant of what this alleged democracy does to the rest of the world is the height of immorality.  It’s indefensible.

P.S.

Madrassas in the US of A?

Somebody might be interested in a network of 100 charter schools owned by a radical Islamic cleric whose Madrassas have been closed down in a bunch of other countries for teaching Sharia Law and the overthrowing of secular society?

And guess who is on record as a character reference to vouch for this radical cleric to stay in the United States?  Three guesses.

Graham E. Fuller, ‘Formerly’ of the CIA

PPS.

The largest concentrations of these active Chechen terrorists are in (in order): Turkey- A NATO member, Azerbaijan (Almost a NATO Member), Germany (a NATO Member), followed by Dubai- one of the closest US Allies in the Arab States, and Qatar-another very close US ally and partner in the Arab states.”
–Sibel Edmonds

 

…”Did you know that the US Government has been paying [Turkish construction firm] ENKA hundreds of millions of dollars for building US Embassies? You can check it out here at ENKA’s website: US Embassy in Guinea, in Cameroon, in Mali, in Bosnia, in Sarajevo …Now ask yourself: why in the world would our government hire a Turkish company to build embassies for it around the world? My short tenure with the FBI was a real eye-opener with operations like this. This is one way to add to our black budget for our CIA’s black operations. You see, they (the CIA, aka State Department) get middlemen companies such as ENKA (believe me ATC is full of such companies) to quote a price ten or a hundred times more than the actual price. Then, they don’t let any ‘real company’ bid. Then, they get it easily approved (State Department, Congress). A company like ENKA would take a nice profit out of that, and the rest would go to finance our illegal/black operations in, let’s say Central Asia or the Caucasus.”
