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. “

One of the organizers of the terrorist attack in Boston, studied at the workshop held in conjunction with the Georgian special services Americans

At the disposal of “Izvestia” has documents Counterintelligence Department Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia, confirming that the Georgian organization “Fund of Caucasus”, which cooperates with the U.S. non-profit organization “Jamestown” (the board of directors of NGOs previously entered one of the ideologists of U.S. foreign policy, Zbigniew Brzezinski), was engaged in recruiting residents North Caucasus to work in the interests of the United States and Georgia.

According to the reports of Colonel Chief Directorate Counterintelligence Department Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia Gregory Chanturia to the Minister of Internal Affairs Irakli Garibashvili, “Caucasian fund” in cooperation with the Foundation “Jamestown” in the summer of 2012 conducted workshops and seminars for young people of the Caucasus, including its Russian part. Some of them attended Tsarnaev Tamerlane, who was in Russia from January to July 2012.

“Caucasian fund” writes Tchanturia was established November 7, 2008, just after the Georgian-Ossetian conflict, “to control the processes taking place in the North Caucasus region.” Accordingly, the Department of the Interior Ministry counterintelligence case was brought intelligence operations called “DTV”. Main purpose is to recruit young people and intellectuals of the North Caucasus to enhance instability and extremism in the southern regions of Russia.

“In order to finance the organization was determined monthly amount of $ 33 million lari (660 thousand). Since the establishment of the organization before 1 January 2013 the amount allocated in the end amounted to 4.058 million GEL (81.1 million), “- wrote in a report Tchanturia.

The documents referred to, and the work of the “Caucasian fund” in the three border areas of Azerbaijan and Dagestan – Balacan, Zakatalsky and Kakh.

In addition, Colonel counterintelligence Tbilisi reports that security forces in Chechnya through Georgia “Caucasian fund” and fund “Jamestown” are sympathetic to the Georgian people, who are invited to various events in the republic under the innocent pretexts. In these seminars, the Russians are recruiting and preparing acts of terrorism.

Deputy head of the NGO “Agency of the socio-political initiatives” Tatiev Iles, who oversees the North Caucasus Federal District, said that the activities of the “Caucasian fund” raises too many questions.

– Where in Georgia, which exists on the loans, the extra money for some funds? – Ask the expert. – I do not exclude that this fund is affiliated with the Department of State in the North Caucasus.

The head of the New York office of the Institute for Democracy and Cooperation Andranik Migranyan, who learned about the “Caucasian fund” from the “News”, believes that the activities of the organization, as it is depicted in the documents that fits into the policy of the Georgian authorities.

– Saakashvili administration is conducting an overt anti-Russian line – says the analyst.

Director General of the National Strategy Council Valery Hamsters argues that exaggerated the force of external enemy in Georgia may be beneficial to the management of the North Caucasian republics.

– I think the danger is exaggerated Georgian factor – the expert believes. – Personally, I have no doubt that Georgia only deals with the introduction of its spies and recruit Russian citizens.

A member of the security committee Anatoly Elected even promised according to their ability to connect to the investigation of the “Caucasian fund.”

– Documents of which you speak, like the truth. Real friendly moves by Georgia and the U.S., we do not see, their goal is to make Russian state, which can be controlled, – the Elected.

Jamestown Foundation has repeatedly demonstrated its interest in Georgia and the state of affairs in Russia’s North Caucasus. In 2007, the Foundation held a seminar “The Future of Ingushetia,” which was attended by former fighters of Aslan Maskhadov.

In March 2010, the Jamestown Foundation asked the IOC to not hold the Olympic Games in Sochi, citing the tragic events of the Caucasian War of XIX century.

In 2011, political scientists Fund predicted that Georgia in the coming year will take a leading role in the Caucasus and Russia will be serious competition as a “regional leader”.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has repeatedly responded to the ongoing policy of the fund, handing over a protest note to U.S. in Moscow.
