Moles, informants and double agents in Boston Marathon bombings


The bizarre circumstances and dubious names in the Boston Marathon bombings have raised many questions that have yet to be answered by government officials and journalists.

The most mysterious character is ‘Misha’ whom Ruslan Tsarni, uncle of the Boston bombers, described as an Armenian convert to Islam who had supposedly brainwashed and radicalized Tamerlan, the elder of the suspected Tsarnaev brothers. Ruslan described ‘Misha’ as a heavy-set bald exorcist with a long reddish beard!

Initially, no one could find ‘Misha.’ While his alleged affiliation with Tamerlan and Armenian origin was prominently and repeatedly mentioned in the media, it took the authorities 10 days to announce that they knew who ‘Misha’ was and that he had no connection to the terrorist acts!

Last Sunday, Christian Caryl of the New York Review of Books, was finally able to locate and interview the elusive ‘Misha’ in his Rhode Island home. Even though Caryl disclosed that ‘Misha,’ a native of Baku, Azerbaijan, is the son of an Armenian father and a Ukrainian mother, and that his last name is Allakhverdov, the media continues to refer to him as an ‘Armenian.’ Notably, neither Caryl nor anyone else mentions the fact that ‘Misha’ or ‘Mikayel’ -- a common Christian name -- cannot be the name of a Muslim! Moreover, after the break up of the Soviet Union, many Muslim Azerbaijanis applied for asylum in Europe and the United States, under the pretext that they were persecuted Christian Armenians! It is odd that ‘Misha,’ supposedly a Christian, would flee from Islamic persecution in Baku, only to convert to Islam in America!

Interestingly, Caryl reports that ‘Misha’ had nothing to do with the Boston bombings, which is exactly what government investigators had earlier announced. Could it be that US officials had put Caryl in contact with ‘Misha’ in order to confirm their declaration of his innocence, leading some analysts to speculate that ‘Misha’ may have been an FBI informant whose cover is now being meticulously protected!

The next suspicious character is Uncle Ruslan who has accused ‘Misha the Armenian’ of having a powerful influence over Tamerlan. Ruslan himself has had a checkered past, having worked for USAID and several Caspian Sea energy companies, while married to Samantha Ankara Fuller, daughter of Graham Fuller, a retired top CIA official. Because of Ruslan’s close relationship to the bombers’ family, his employment with Central Asian oil companies including Halliburton, and marriage to the daughter of a high-ranking CIA official, some analysts have suggested that the enigmatic uncle warrants a closer look.

Last week, prominent Armenian-American attorney Mark Geragos blasted Ruslan Tsarni on CNN, suggesting that "somebody needs to give this uncle a field sobriety test, because I think this guy is under the influence of something." Geragos was furious that Ruslan had linked the Boston bombers to the ‘Armenian Misha,’ while Armenians worldwide were commemorating the 98th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide! Ruslan then tried to reach Geragos by telephone, seeking "to clarify" his earlier statement. Geragos refused to take his call.

Some analysts suggest that Tamerlan may have been recruited by the Russian secret services (FSB) to spy on Chechen extremists during his six-month stay in Chechnya and Dagestan last year. Having informed the FBI and CIA of Tamerlan’s links to radical Islamist groups, and not receiving a satisfactory response from US officials, it could be that the FSB took matters into its own hands and recruited the unemployed and penniless young Chechen during his lengthy stay in Russia.

Other analysts speculate that Tamerlan may have been an informant for the US government. Such a supposition is much more credible than assuming that the FBI and CIA were too incompetent or too busy to conduct a thorough investigation of Tamerlan’s background after the Russian FSB brought his name to their attention. It could be that US authorities knew Tamerlan only too well and may have even encouraged him to travel to Russia as their mole in Jihadist circles.

Finally, there are those who believe that Tamerlan ended up betraying both the Russian and American intelligent services, deciding instead to support radical Islamic groups, "out of anger over US wars in Iraq and Afghanistan," according to his younger brother Dzhokhar’s jailhouse confession.

Of course, these speculations are advanced by various analysts based on preliminary information, pending a thorough Congressional investigation to uncover the true facts. Americans killed and maimed in the Boston bombings deserve an honest answer!

3 pals of Boston Marathon bombing suspect charged with coverup


By Pete Williams, Richard Esposito, Michael Isikoff and Tracy Connor, NBC News
Three college friends of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were accused Wednesday of removing evidence from his dorm room as new details about the case emerged in court papers.
Criminal complaints against the trio revealed that Tsarnaev cut his long hair after the April 15 attack but before the FBI released his photo and that he allegedly told friends a month earlier that he knew “how to make a bomb.”
The court papers also suggest that the 19-year-old suspect was practically blasé when one of the friends texted to say he looked like the man in the FBI photos of the bomb suspect.
Among his replies: ‘lol,” according to the complaints.

conflicting statement about whether that happened before or after Tsarnaev had been publicly named as the bombing suspect following a night of bloody mayhem.
As the allegations against them were unveiled, Tsarnaev’s three friends appeared in Boston Federal Court Wednesday afternoon. None of the charges suggested they had prior knowledge of the dual bombings that killed three and wounded more than 200 near the finish line of the race.

FBI

This May 1, 2013 FBI handout image released in a criminal complaint, shows fireworks tubes found in a backpack that was disposed of by friends of Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Tazhayakov and Kadyrbayev — who are from Kazakhstan and were detained more than a week ago on immigration charges — did not seek bail and were ordered held until a May 14 hearing.
Phillipos is being held until a detention hearing Monday. As he was read his rights, Federal Judge Marianne Bowler admonished him, saying, “I suggest you pay attention to me rather than looking down.”
Outside the courthouse, Harlan Protass, a lawyer for Tazhayakov, said his client “has cooperated fully with the authorities and looks forward to the truth coming out in this case.”
Robert Stahl, a lawyer for Kadyrbayev, said the college sophomore "absolutely denies" allegations of a coverup and was “shocked and horrified” by the bombing. He said his client told investigators about ditching the items from the dorm room but “did not know those items were involved in a bombing.”
Although only Tazhayakov is currently enrolled, all three men knew Tsarnaev from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth.
The narrative outlined in the court papers begins about a month ago when, according to Tazhayakov, Tsarnaev told him and Kadyrbayev that he "knew how to make a bomb.”
Kadyrbayev last saw Tsarnaev on April 17, two days after the bombing, at his dorm room and noticed that he had given himself a short haircut. They chatted outside the dorm, the complaint said.
Little more than 24 hours later, the FBI released photos and video of two men wanted in the bombing. The suspects were not yet identified as Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his older brother Tamerlan.
At least two of the three friends thought one of the men in the pictures looked like Tsarnaev, and Kadyrbayev texted him to say so, the FBI said.

YouTube

This still image is taken from a YouTube video made by Robel Phillipos.
Tsarnaev fired off a flurry of texts, including, "lol," "you better not text me" and "come to my room and take whatever you want," the court papers said.
The trio then met at Tsarnaev's dorm room, where they learned he had already left and were let in by his roommate.
After watching a movie, they spotted a dark backpack containing seven red tubes of fireworks that had been emptied, and Kadyrbayev decided to take it, according to one of the complaints.
They also took a laptop – now turned over to the FBI, according to Kadyrbayev's attorney — because they didn't want to arouse the roommate's suspicions about the backpack, the document said.
After leaving the dorm, the three friends "started to freak out" because they realized Tsarnaev was wanted in the bombing, Phillipos said, according to the feds.
They then "collectively decided to throw the backpack and fireworks into the trash because they did not want Tsarnaev to get in trouble," Kadyrbayev told agents, according to the complaint.
Kadyrbayev allegedly put the items in a large trash bag and tossed it into a dumpster near his off-campus apartment.
The suspects' statements clashed on whether that happened the night of the April 18, before Tsarnaev was formally identified as the accused bomber, or the morning after – an important point if their defense is that they had no idea the items could be evidence.
Tsarnaev never returned to his dorm room. Authorities say that after the FBI put their pictures out, he and Tamerlan executed a campus police officer, stole a car at gunpoint and led police on a wild chase.


It ended with Tamerlan dead after a firefight and Dzhokhar captured in a boat in a Watertown, Mass., backyard. Dzhokhar, who was wounded, has been charged with using a weapon of mass destruction.
Law enforcement officials have told NBC News that Dzhokhar told them during questioning he and his brother wanted to defend Islam after the American wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Investigators have been trying to determine if pair – ethnic Chechens who had lived in the U.S. for more than a decade — they received assistance from anyone else in the U.S. or abroad.

Tsarnaev friends had money and 'Terrorista #1' license plate, classmate says


By Miranda Leitsinger, Tom Winter and Erin McClam, NBC News
Two of the three people newly arrested in the Boston Marathon investigation are Kazakh friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, and one drove a BMW with a novelty license plate that said “Terrorista #1,” according to people who knew them.
The two were pictured in a 2012 photo with Tsarnaev in Times Square that was posted to VKontakt, the Russian equivalent of Facebook. Authorities say Tsarnaev and his brother, suspected in the marathon attack, discussed driving to New York and setting off more of their explosives there.
The Kazakh men, Azamat Tazhayakov and Dias Kadyrbayev, were charged Wednesday with conspiring to destroy or hide a laptop belonging to Tsarnaev and a backpack of his containing fireworks.

Another man, Robel Phillipos of Cambridge, Mass., was charged with lying to investigators. All three appeared in federal court in Boston Wednesday afternoon.
Both Kazakh men are 19 and were in the United States on student visas, the Justice Department said.
Stephen Troio, who said he lived on the same dorm floor as the two men during his freshman year in 2011, said that they showed “lack of emotion” and “lack of personality” and that nothing stood out about them but the BMW.
“They did have a lot of money,” Troio told NBC News. “He wrecked like three Beamers and then bought another one.”
Trevor Berry, 20, who took a calculus course with Tazhayakov, said the Kazakh was friendly with Tsarnaev and that the two could be spotted dining together on campus. “They were pretty close as far as I can tell,” he said.
Berry said that Tazhayakov was "much more quiet than Dzhokhar," but was once "really flustered" over a low grade he'd gotten in calculus class.
The two men were taken into custody over immigration violations last week. Kadyrbayev’s lawyer, Robert Stahl, told The Associated Press then that they were horrified by the marathon bombing.
“They can’t even fathom something like this from a kid who seemed to be a typical young college student,” he said.
The two Kazakhs lived at an apartment in New Bedford, Mass., near the campus of the University of Massachusetts’ Dartmouth campus, where Tsarnaev was a student. Last week, investigators scoured a landfill in New Bedford for items that might belong to Tsarnaev, including the laptop and receipts related to the purchase of fireworks.
A neighbor in New Bedford said Wednesday that the Kazakhs were quiet and polite, and would even help carrying groceries inside. They had parties, the neighbor said, including one that police were called to at 3 a.m.
Stahl told the AP that the two men did not see Tsarnaev in the days before or after the marathon attack.
The license plate was a joke gift from friends of Kadyrbayev’s friends, meant to refer to his late-night partying and not his political sentiments, Stahl told the AP. The license plate was pictured in Tsarnaev’s Twitter feed in March.
A Facebook page in the name of Azamat Tazhayakov lists him as a UMass-Dartmouth student and as a member of the Class of 2011 at a Kazakh school, Miras International School Astana. It lists his hometown as Atyrau, says he speaks Russian and lists Rihanna, Beyonce and Enimem as musicians he likes.
A Facebook page in the name of Dias Kadyrbayev shows him vacationing in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and palling around with friends.

“Mischa”: Also spelled in some accounts as “Misha.” Described by Tsarni, the uncle, as a friend from the United States who may have radicalized Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Tsarni told NBC News that Mischa presented himself as an “exorcist” who specialized in “removing demons from people’s bodies.” Investigators later downplayed Mischa’s role in the story.

THE MYSTERY DEEPENS

http://www.mirrorspe...ystery-deepens/
EDITORIAL | APRIL 30, 2013 8:08 PM

By Edmond Y. Azadian

While Armenians around the country were grieving the loss of four
victims and 200 wounded as a result of the Boston Marathon bombings -
a story which ended in the Armenian neck of the woods of Watertown,
Mass. - suddenly a bomb was also hurled in the news media calling
Armenians for cover.

While investigations were continuing relentlessly and the events
leading to the bombing were evolving, Armenians had to focus on the
unexpected turn of events, when the bombers' uncle, Ruslan Tsarni,
interjected the name of a shadowy character called, "Misha," who
had "taken the brain" of the bombers and supposedly "brainwashed
completely" the elder brother, Tamerlan. And this character is supposed
to be of "Armenian descent," converted to Islam - a rare concoction
of a character, indeed.

As the authorities were after the criminal aspects of the case,
Armenians had to tend to their own wounds, right on the eve of the
April 24 commemoration of the Armenian Genocide.

The surviving younger bomber has confessed that the next target was
Times Square in New York City. No one has yet asked the question:
why was that particular target selected? Was there any connection
with the Armenian Genocide commemoration to take place at that very
same location a few days later?

As Armenians began to wonder and look into the implications of Uncle
Tsarni's statement, the mystery turned even darker and more complex
looking like the characterization of Soviet Russia by Winston Churchill
who said, "I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a
riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is
a key."

When, finally that key was found, it turned out to be a big lie. And
as soon as that lie was discovered, the Soviet Empire collapsed.

Now the question is who will be able to find the key to this new
mystery. As the characters of this drama are revealed the mystery
gets even thicker. Only investigative journalists with connections
to the darker alleys of the intelligence community may be able to
get to the bottom of this "Armenian connection."

Prominent lawyer, Mark Geragos, set the record straight with CNN's
Anderson Cooper, who was harping continuously on the Armenian ancestry
of the character Misha who suddenly had become a major player. Had
he known the background of the characters, as we now know, he would
have certainly made more of an in-depth case on the issue.

Of course, on Tuesday, April 30, Tsarni contacted the Armenian
Mirror-Spectator to apologize to the Armenian community. (See story on
page 1.) What is the reason for the change of heart at this juncture?

As journalists investigate this event and its aftermath, they
publish more facts and information about the players in this game. Of
particular interest for us here, is the character of Ruslan Tsarni
who threw the "Armenian bomb" at the media. He does not seem to be a
simple by-stander. His involvement and activities are entwined with
oil politics and covert operations.

Ruslan Tsarni turns out to be an oil executive serving a company
active in the Caspian region. He served for two years (1999-2001)
as the head of the legal department of the oil company, Golden Eagle.

Earlier he was a Halliburton contractor and for two years he was a
consultant to USAID in Kazakhstan.

In light of the furtive lobbying campaign of the oil companies,
against the passage of the Armenian Genocide resolution in Congress,
Mr. Tsarni's Armenian reference cannot be construed as coincidental.

It must be deliberate especially given his legal background.

Besides his business relations, his family ties are even muddier,
and he cannot extricate himself from the family web that drags him
further into the shady world of covert activities.

In a revelation published in Boiling Frogs by Sibel Edmonds (April 27,
2013), it turns out that Mr. Tsarni was married to the daughter of
Graham Fuller. Who is Graham Fuller? The publication writes, "A major
break in the Boston terror CIA connection took place last night when
I came across a post outing CIA operative Graham Fuller as the father
of a woman married to the Boston terror suspects' infamous uncle,
Ruslan Tsarni. Further confirmation of this bombshell was received
via mainstream reporter, Laura Rozen."

We further read in the Boiling Frogs expose: "On a more ominous note,
Graham Fuller was listed as one of the American Deep State rogues on
Sibel Edmonds' State Secrets Privilege Gallery. Edmonds explained it
featured subjects of FBI investigations she became aware of during
her time as an FBI translator.

"Criminal activities were being protected by claims of State Secrets,
she asserted. After Attorney General John Ashcroft went all the way
to the Supreme Court to muzzle her under a little-used doctrine of
State Secrets, she put up 21 photos, with no names. One of them was
Graham Fuller."

A more revealing testimony by Edmonds brings Mr. Fuller's activities
and goals closer home to Caucasus and consequently to Armenia: "You
may remember one of these foreign policy makers from my State Secrets
Privilege Gallery and my under oath testimony in the Krikorian case.

Here is a quote from Graham A. Fuller, former Deputy Director of
the CIA's National Council on Intelligence: 'The policy of guiding
the evolution of Islam and of helping them against our adversaries
worked marvelously well in Afghanistan against the Red Army. The
same doctrines can still be used to destabilize what remains of
Russian power, and especially to counter the Chinese influence in
Central Asia.'"

Mr. Fuller's activities do not necessarily reflect on Mr. Ruslan
Tsarni, but his place in the tangle of oil politics and covert
operations shed light on his statements and his intent to drag the
Armenian name into this mess.

Also special attention must be focused on Mr. Fuller's "doctrinal"
ideas; while the West and specially the US are fighting radical Islam,
on the other hand, that same weapon is being used to "destabilize
what remains of Russian power." That certainly implicates Armenia,
where one of the last power bases of Russia is located.

Therefore, it is no surprise that Russia recently expelled most of the
foreign NGOs operating in its territory. But they are still active in
Armenia. And in conjunction with the infiltration of religious sects
they are intent on undermining the foundations of the country. None
of the foreign organizations may entertain altogether altruistic goals.

They are all self-serving at Armenia's expense.

Returning to Misha, he seems to be the remotest person to be connected
with anything Armenian. But Uncle Ruslan implicates him as the main
culprit in misguiding his "innocent" nephews. Misha also seems to be
a shady character. Interviewed in his Rhode Island home by New York
Review of Books, Misha turns out to be Mikhail Allakhverdov, a person
of mixed Armenian and Ukrainian parentage. Certainly he has inherited
his red beard from his Ukrainian ancestry. Then why is his Armenian
parentage thrust into the news media and not the Ukrainian? What
is inconceivable with Misha is that his family was persecuted as
Christians in Muslim Azerbaijan and he seems to be among the 400,000
Armenians who were either murdered or deported from Baku and Sumgait.

And then, one needs a psychologist's genius to understand that
after arriving in a free country, he decided to convert to the
Islamic religion of his persecutors. And as if that was not enough,
he acquired the power to radicalize actual, practicing Muslims.

All these incredible factors are being used to cover his main purpose
and activity. Indeed, Walter Katz in The Week suggests that Misha
may have been "an FBI informant" who started grooming Tamerlan for a
sting operation before giving up [prematurely]." As we can see, Misha
is also a character in the shadowy underworld, pursuing a mischievous
mission turned sour. We can speculate on any potential goal; perhaps
Tamerlan was being groomed to be involved in one of the Mr. Fuller's
operations in the Caucasus, and like Osama Bin Laden before him,
he turned against his handlers. That is one of the possibilities.

As bombing victims and their families suffer, no one has an interest
in digging further to find where the network of conspiracy against
Armenians leads.

As Armenians we may air our anger for being hurled into this tragedy,
but our resources are limited for damage control. Therefore, beyond
saving the Armenian name, must we also worry about Armenia itself
caught in this complex crossfire?

Strength in the Face of Tragedy: A Thank You to the Armenian-American Community


Belmont, Mass. - On April 19, the Massachusetts Armenian community
demonstrated the kind of resilience and courage that has inspired us
to be `Boston Strong' in the wake of last week's tragedies.

The 98th anniversary Commemoration of the Armenian Genocide was to
take place on Friday, April 19, at the Massachusetts State House. We
expected hundreds of people from Watertown and surrounding communities
to attend. The planned march to the New England Holocaust Memorial
and Armenian Heritage Park had already been cancelled due to the
Boston Marathon bombings - but there was a considered decision by the
planning committee to move forward with the State House event.
All that transpired in the early hours of Friday changed those plans.
With Boston and Watertown on lockdown, the plans for the Commemoration
were put aside, our energy directed toward getting the stay-indoors
request out to residents of Watertown and surrounding communities.

Beyond Watertown's borders, other communities were also impacted by
Friday's events. A class of Wilmington High School students, who had
studied the Genocide and had planned to attend the Commemoration, is
now part of a community mourning the loss of Officer Sean Collier.

Our months of planning would no longer culminate in a Commemoration
that would fill the House of Representatives Chamber with hundreds of
people, young and old, school children and scouts, guest speakers and
Genocide survivors. Any momentary disappointment was soon replaced
with concern and prayers for our friends in Watertown, who were
undergoing a horrific ordeal.
We spread the word that the Commemoration had been cancelled, but the
catering order for 350 had already been prepared by Ani Catering of
Belmont. The planning committee agreed to donate the food to law
enforcement in Watertown.

Coordinating this donation, when most of the committee members were
subject to the shelter-in-place order, was hardly an easy task. Lalig
Musserian of Belmont, the Commemoration coordinator, worked quickly,
contacting Hovannes Janessian of Ani Catering. They worked out a plan
with Sheriff Peter Koutoujian's office to have the food safely
delivered to law enforcement in Watertown. Hovannes waited for hours
with the food before the police granted Lalig permission to drive to
his catering shop in Belmont. Around noon on Friday, Lalig and her
husband received clearance. Together, they loaded the van with brown
bags of sweet rolls, cookies, brownies, cheeses, and beverages. They
drove through empty streets and made their way through checkpoints
before a member of the Sheriff's office greeted them and accepted the
donation. They were also able to hand out brown bag lunches to several
Watertown police officers on patrol.


We are sure that there are many more untold stories of kindness,
courage, and generosity in the face of danger that will eventually
emerge. But Lalig, Hovannes, and Watertown: you inspired us with your
strength on Friday. The Armenian Genocide Commemoration would have
allowed us to gather together to remember the 1.5 million lives lost
in the Armenian Genocide, to stand up for survivors, and to celebrate
the contributions of Armenian-Americans to our society. Your
contribution on Friday touched us deeply.

Last week, we saw people from all over the world come together to
support Boston. The sense emerged that `We are all Bostonians.' The
Armenian community also came together- once again- in the face of
tragedy. Yours is truly a story of perseverance, and we thank you for
your example.

And the comedy continues!!!!

Did the CIA commandeer the Boston bombing investigation?

MadCow
Morning News
May 3, 2013

by Daniel Hopsicker

It's been more than 300 years ago since demonic possession figured as
heavily in a criminal probe as it has in the investigation into the
Boston Marathon bombing.

Not since the Salem Witch Trials has the search for accomplices to a
major crime centered so heavily on finding a suspect who believed he
could talk to demons.

"He took (and ate?) his brains"

Since the remaining of the two brothers accused of planting the bombs
was found cowering under a tarpaulin in a boat in a backyard in
Watertown Massachusetts two weeks ago, coverage of the bombing by the
most respected organs of the American mainstream media has been full
of breathless updates-delivered with a straight face-about the
progress of an FBI manhunt for a red-haired Muslim who talked to
demons, dabbled in exorcism, and walked around carrying other people's
brains.

The drumbeat was started by Ruslan Tsarni, who became famous as
=80=9CUncle Ruslan' for his forthright condemnation of the attack in a
now-famous news conference on his front lawn just four days after the
Boston Marathon Bombing.

`There is someone who brainwashed him, some new convert to Islam,''
Tsarni said. I would like to stress (the acquaintance was) of
Armenian descent.''

Since then he has been using the media to press investigators to find
Misha, a man who appeared to combine the worst features of villains
from two different horror movies.

`The Exorcist' meets `The Walking Dead.'

"This person just took his brain. He just brainwashed him completely,"
Tsarnaev's uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, told CNN from his home in Maryland,
describing the friend as an Armenian convert to Islam.

`The bombers' uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, depicts Misha as a Rasputin-like
figure who "took [Tamerlan's] brain" and said that his presence soon
became a source of tension within the family,' reported USA Today.

Also citing the boys' uncle, London's Daily Mail reported that `Misha
used to give one-on-one sermons to Tamerlan over the kitchen table,
during which he claimed he could talk to demons.'

Tsarni, Tsarnaev's uncle, told CNN he was so concerned about someone
brainwashing his nephew that he called a family friend in the
Cambridge area to investigate.

"I said, 'Listen, do you know what is going on with that family? With
my brother's family?' Then he says ... there is a person, some new
convert into Islam of Armenian descent," Tsarni told CNN's Shannon
Travis.

Tsarni said, "Armenians, I have no intention to say anything about
Armenians.'

Then he proceeded to do just that. =80=9CIt's a neighboring region
with North Caucasus," the same area where the Tsarnaev family also
hails from.'

A red-haried Armenian exorcist...with a big mouth...in Cambridge

Tsarni described Misha as being "chubby, a big guy, big mouth
presenting himself with some kind of abilities as exorcist
. . . having some part-time job in one of the stores, not married. All
of the qualifications of a loser, just another big mouth.'

According to Uncle Ruslan, Misha, over a considerable period of time,
had radicalized Tamerlan.

=80=9CBut there are signs that Tamerlan had become radicalized -
apparently from a friend in the United States named `Mischa' -
described as a Russian of Armenian descent who was a relatively recent
convert to Islam and who lived in Cambridge, according by Tsarnaev's
uncle, Ruslan Tsarni,' NBC reported.

Tsarni told NBC News that Mischa presented himself as an `exorcist'
who specialized in `removing demons from people's bodies.'

Not a day went by without references in the press to the search for
Misha. There were literally hundred of news reports about him. Very
soon, it began to appear there was nothing new to be said.

But that didn't stop anyone. Reported New York magazine:

`According to reports, family members point the finger at a man
identified only as Misha, a friend whom Tamerlan knew through a local
mosque. Misha is described as a bald, red-bearded, 30-year-old
Armenian convert to Islam who "claimed to be an exorcist who is
fighting with demons."


OMG...you mean he's even scarier than...Alex Jones?

There was also a half-hearted attempt to draw Alex Jones into the
controversy. Reported the Atlantic Magazine online:

`The major development in the sleuthing of the Tsarnaev brothers,
specifically sinister Tamerlan, involves a red-bearded exorcist named
Misha.'

`Tamerlan listened to Alex Jones's popular and usually looney radio
show Infowars. BuzzFeed's Rosie Grey reached out to Jones to see how
he felt about having a suspected terrorist as a listener.'

It's hard to imagine anyone asking Alex Jones, =80=9CHow does that
make you feel.' But the effort to smear him was no doubt duly
noted. But the problem with doing any serious damage to Alex Jones was
simple: When you're lookng for an Armenian exorcist who talks with
demons, slandering a poor radio host in the bargain loses its lustre.

The fever over finding Misha finally broke when somebodsy actually
found him. Christian Caryl of the New York Times Review of Books
scored the first media interview with Misha. In her interview with the
alleged Boston Bomber's `Svengali,' he told her he hadn't seen or
spoken to anyone in the Tsarnaev family for more than three years.

Ooops! Uncle Ruslan's response spoke volumes about him. Was he
abashed? Far from it. He changed his story without batting an eye, and
turned his attention to a secondary target, a woman who, if you're
trying to create a distraction, is right out of Central Casting.

`Check out Bomb Mom'

Ruslan dismissed Zubeidat, who was arrested last year for stealing
$1,600 of lingerie from a department store, as a `bad character'.

`Ruslan Tsarni, told the AP from his home in Maryland that he
believed his former sister-in-law had a "big-time influence" on her
older son's growing embrace of his Muslim faith and decision to quit
boxing and school.'

` Ruslan Tsarni claimed that Zubeidat allowed a firebrand cleric into
their house to give one-on-one sermons to Tamerlan over the kitchen
table during which he claimed he could talk to demons and perform
exorcisms.'

He told London Daily MailOnline : `The change of the older boy, one of
the biggest causes is her. `First she started playing into this
religious crap, they say is a devotion to Islam.'

"I work. Why do you want to know?"

Tsarni was cagey with reporters about what he did for a living.

`Tsarni was careful not to give out too much information, reported the
Washington Post. `When asked about his profession, he responded, `I
work, I work.''

And with good reason, because for the past twenty years he has almost
certainly been a CIA asset operating in a number of former Soviet
Republics.

Tsarni's bio, in an official SEC filing, stated he worked for the US
Agency for International Development, USAID, during the early
1990's. Bloomberg Business Review revealed last week that since 2008,
he's again been working for USAID.

Famously, USAID workers build schools, as well as provide cover for
CIA assets overseas. Recently they were thrown out of Russia. Just
last week, they were asked to leave Bolivia.

In between his stints with the obviously-conflicted US Agency, Ruslan
Tsarni worked for several Halliburton-controlled oil companies, as
well as a Kazakh man charged with a major banking scandal in
Kazakhstan whose repercussions earlier this year stretched all the way
to London.

Maybe Ruslan Tsarni's commute car doesn't bear a `smoking gun' parking
sticker from CIA headquarters in Langley. But neither his bio nor his
demeanor since the bombings qualify him for a `Humanitarian of the
Year' award, either.

Of demons, exorcists, and shoddy shoddy journalism

The search for foreign involvement in the Boston Marathon Bombings has
been a sad joke.

The fact that no one has stood up and called "shenanigans" on the
mainstream purveyors of what is supposed to be responsible journalism
in this country is a national disgrace.

When you look at how this happened, its hard not to suspect that a
`higher power' than the FBI was steering the investigation.

This raises the strong possibility that the FBI's investigation into
the bombing has been manipulated, or steered, by the CIA.

In the post-mortems to come on the Boston Marathon bombing
investigation, the crucial question will be: Who was behind this
effort, and why?

A big question is what Uncle Ruslan stood to gain by making
accusations about Misha.

If you're on a CIA's crisis management team, and your job is to play
for time and try to run the clock out on the American people's
attention span, the result might look something very much like the
last two weeks in America.

And if your goal was to forestall pointed questions about Ruslan
Tsarni and top CIA official Graham Fuller's roles in the Tsarnaevs
family's frequent trips to Dagestan, you couldn't have played it
better.


Daniel Hopsicker is an investigative journalist dubious about the
self-serving assertion of U.S. officials that there are no American
Drug Lords.

Elderly Armenian Couple Targeted with Racist Letter
Posted Image14:49, 9 May, 2013

YEREVAN, MAY 9, ARMENPRESS: The Armenian National Committee of America - Greater Washington (ANCA-GW) today called upon police and postal authorities to fully investigate and prosecute an anti-Armenian threat against an elderly Rockville couple of Armenian heritage, ANCA informed Armenpress.
An envelope addressed to A. Sahagian included a news clipping (see attached image) about the recent Boston Marathon bombing, with the handwritten message: "Another Armenian Bastard," pointing to a discredited link between this act of terrorism and what the news story incorrectly referenced as "an Armenian man named 'Misha.'"
"We call upon federal and local authorities to immediately investigate and fully prosecute those responsible for this hate crime," said ANCA-Greater Washington spokesperson Sevan Kolejian. "This hateful act of intolerance and intimidation also serves to remind the media of the human price innocent citizens are paying for their flagrant and repeated misreporting of the 'Misha' story."
Ara and Salpee Sahagian are both long-time residents of Maryland, having served in the lay leadership of Bethesda's Soorp Khatch Armenian Apostolic Church, and as active members in a range of community and civic organizations. A U.S. Army veteran, Ara worked for four decades as an engineer for the Department of the Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. His wife, Salpee, worked at the Library of Congress and later served as an aide to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mike Mansfield.
In the days following the Boston Marathon bombing, Armenian Americans protested news outlets that repeated the unsubstantiated, and now fully discredited, allegation by the uncle of the two suspects, Ruslan Tsarni, that they were somehow inspired to commit these crimes by an ethnic Armenian convert to Islam. News reports later identified 'Misha' as Mikhail Allakhverdov, an Armenian-Ukrainian from Azerbaijan, whose family fled anti-Armenian persecution in the early 1990's.
The ANCA-Greater Washington, DC has reached out to local churches and community groups to collect information regarding any other reported instances of anti-Armenian hatred, and calls upon all Armenian Americans to report documented cases of anti-Armenian hate crime.

Florida man killed by FBI agent reportedly had link to Boston Marathon bomber, triple murder


Read more: http://www.foxnews.c.../#ixzz2U3LLIonZ



A former mixed martial arts fighter who was fatally shot by an FBI agent in Florida following a "violent confrontation" knew one of the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings and was being questioned about an unsolved triple homicide that may be linked to him, according to reports.
Ibragim Todashev, who was shot and killed early Wednesday during a shooting at an apartment complex near Universal Studios in Orlando, knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the older of the two brothers suspected in the April 15 bombing attack. Todashev was shot while being questioned about an unsolved 2011 triple homicide in Waltham, Mass., in which one victim was a onetime associate of Tsarnaev, two law enforcement officials with knowledge of the investigation and the FBI told the Boston Globe.
"The agent, along with other law enforcement personnel, were interviewing an individual in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation when a violent confrontation was initiated by the subject," FBI Agent Dave Couvertier said in a statement obtained by FoxNews.com. "During the confrontation, the individual was killed and the agent sustained non-life threatening injuries. As this incident is under review, we have no further details at this time."
Law enforcement officials told The Associated Press that Todashev after he lunged at an FBI agent with a knife.
In the aftermath of the bombing, questions were raised about a possible Tsarnaev connection to the triple murder, in which the throats of the victims in the 2011 incident were slashed and their bodies were covered with marijuana. According to the Globe, police were eyeing Todashev as a suspect in the triple murder. Two Massachusetts State Police troopers took part in the questioning that ended in Todashev's death, the FBI said. State Police spokesman David Procopio declined comment, the newspaper reported.
Khusen Taramov, who was at the scene and identified himself as the victim's friend, said Todashev, 27, knew Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the 26-year-old former amateur boxer suspected in the April 15 bombings that killed three and injured more than 260, MyFoxOrlando.com reports.

Killed Chechen’s father arrives in US to sue the FBI
Published time: August 06, 2013 17:25

The father of a Chechen man who was fatally shot by a Boston FBI agent has arrived in the United States, where he intends to file a lawsuit against the agency and investigate the mysterious death of his son.

Abdulbaki Todashev is the father of 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, a mixed martial arts fighter who was fatally shot seven times by the FBI during an extensive interview about his connection to alleged Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as well as any knowledge about a triple murder in Waltham, Massachusetts. Todashev, who lived in Orlando, Florida at the time of the interrogation, had been friends with the suspected bomber when they both lived in Massachusetts.

After several hours of questioning, Todashev was shot dead by the FBI in a case that continues to be shrouded in mystery. The man’s father, who lives in Chechnya, described the incident as an execution-style murder.

“He was shot seven times,” Mr. Todashev told TIME. “In the heart and in the head. What is that if not murder?”

Conflicting reports surfaced after the man’s death, with some suggesting that the young Todashev attacked an FBI agent with a knife, metal pole, or broomstick. Other reports claimed the Chechen-American was unarmed.

“The FBI has offered completely incompatible explanations, they have failed to explain how these inconsistent stories found their way into newspaper accounts of the shootings, and have not offered any clarifying comment about what really happened,” Howard Simon, the Florida executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), told TIME.

The victim’s grieving father does not believe that his son posed any serious danger to the officers who were interrogating him, especially since he was injured. A photograph of his son’s dead body shows a row of stitches over the right knee.

“He had just had surgery on his knee and was still walking with crutches,” Todashev said.

The FBI has opened an internal investigation into the killing, but refuses to comment on the case and blocked the release of the victim’s autopsy report.

The distressed father says he is determined to independently discover the truth behind his son’s death, and plans to travel to the US, where he will employ the help of human rights organizations to get answers. Todashev speaks little English, cannot afford a lawyer, and has nothing more than a tourist visa to the US, but the ACLU has vowed to help him.

He says he wants to sue the FBI - not for compensation, but for answers about his son’s death. However, uncovering the truth is likely to come with numerous hurdles: state investigators in Florida last week rejected an ACLU request for an independent investigation into the shooting, claiming it would be “inappropriate” for the human rights organization to intervene.

“Secrecy fosters suspicion and the people of Florida deserve better than to be left without an explanation from their government about what led to a person being shot to death,” Simon said in a statement last Wednesday. “This means it is more likely that the family of Ibragim Todashev will have to file a lawsuit in order to get answers about how their son died.”

An ACLU request to investigate the death was also rejected by the Massachusetts attorney general.

Todashev announced his plans to sue the agency just a few days after the ACLU’s requests were denied, and told TIME that he would file a wrongful death suit - which would force the FBI to reveal all the facts of his son’s death and accept responsibility for any wrongdoing.

“At least once they must be made to admit they were wrong,” he said. “What, is the FBI infallible?”

Holder: Tsarnaev will face death penalty in Boston bombing case
Published time: January 30, 2014 19:28

Court, Crime, Law, Terrorism, USA

United States Attorney General Eric Holder said Thursday that the Department of Justice will seek the death penalty against Dzhokar Tsarnaev, the 20-year-old ethic Chechen man accused of being involved in last year’s deadly Boston Marathon bombing.

“After consideration of the relevant facts, the applicable regulations and the submissions made by the defendant’s counsel, I have determined that the United States will seek the death penalty in this matter,” Holder said in a brief statement released Thursday afternoon.

No trial is currently set for Tsarnaev, but the attorney general said prosecutors will ask that he be sentenced to die if he’s found guilty of using a weapon of mass destruction.

"The nature of the conduct at issue and the resultant harm compel this decision," Holder said in a statement released Thursday.

In an official Notice of Intent to Seek the Death Penalty filed in the United States District Court for the District of Massachusetts on Thursday, US attorney Carmen Ortiz wrote that Tsarnaev is worthy of execution because he intentionally killed, inflicted serious bodily injury and participated in acts that resulted in death.

“Tsarnaev intentionally and specifically engaged in acts of violence,” Ortiz wrote at one point, “knowing that the acts created a grave risk of death to a person or persons, other than one of the participants in the offense, such that the participation in the acts constituted a reckless disregard for human life.”

Sounds like maybe they should save us all the trouble with seeking the death penalty and let the FBI "interrogate" Dzhokar a bit more.

The "death penalty" is probably the last plug in the big gaping hole they opened when having their talking head utter the magic word "Armenian"

 

The rule of thumb is that whenever you hear "Armenian" mentioned out of the blue associated in some bewilderingly bizarre manner to, say, Pygmies of the Congo, the Chechens of the north caucasus or the Tuaregs of Tamanraset, it is likely CIA/MOSSAD/MYT at work.

Boston Marathon bombing

Court, FBI, Ibragim Todashev, USA

An FBI agent has been cleared in the fatal shooting of a Chechen man who was associated with alleged Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Prosecutors ruled that the agent acted in self defense and did not violate any laws.

Florida prosecutors concluded that the agent – whose name has not been disclosed – was reacting to an attack from 27-year-old Ibragim Todashev, who used a metal pole against the agent during questioning in his Orlando apartment. Todashev was a mixed martial arts fighter.

The agent suffered a wound to the back of the head which required stitches.

First accounts from law enforcement officials said the agent had been attacked with a knife. However, federal agents later said that Todashev was unarmed.

Florida prosecutor Jeffrey L. Ashton said his findings will be released on Tuesday.

The Boston-based FBI agent came to the young man’s Orlando apartment to question him about his friendship with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers. The latter died from injuries sustained in a shootout with police days after the bombing, which killed three people and injured more than 250 others.

According to law enforcement officials, Todashev implicated himself and Tsarnaev in connection with a triple murder in Waltham, Massachusetts, on September 11, 2011. Police suspected him and Tsarnaev in the killings of the three men in a well-kept rental home.

At the same time, Todashev’s family insisted that he had never spoken to them about his friendship with the elder Tsarnaev brother.

Commenting after her husband’s death, Todashev’s widow told media that “they weren’t friends or anything.”

Shortly after the incident in Todashev’s apartment, the FBI claimed the suspect "just went crazy" and attacked the agent after agreeing to sign a confession which would have implicated both he and Tsarnaev in the unsolved 2011 killings.

The FBI first began surveillance and later questioned Todashev several days after the April 15 Boston attack took place. He had cooperated with investigators up until his death.

The FBI cleared its agent several months ago.

The Florida ruling mostly brings the 10-month process to a close. However, the Justice Department’s (DoJ) Civil Rights Division’s ruling is still to come. The DoJ is in the final stages of finishing its own investigation and is also expected to clear the agent, according to officials.

The surviving Boston Marathon suspect, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, is to go on trial in November and could face the death penalty if convicted. He has been charged with using and conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death, and with malicious destruction of property resulting in death.
