Notorious Chechen Rebel Masterminded School Seige Report Created: 03.09.2004 19:27 MSK (GMT +3), Updated: 19:41 MSK, 13 hours 7 minutes ago
Rebel Chechen leader, Shamil Bassayev, was the mastermind behind the school siege in the North Ossetian town of Beslan, ITAR-TASS news agency reported quoting spokesmen of the Southern Federal District secret service.
The operation was organized by Bassayevs subordinate, Magomet Yevloyev. He is also suspected of having organized the attack in Ingushetia in June.
Another infamous Chechen rebel, Doku Umarov, was among the rebels who attacked the school. He was the only one not to wear a mask, with hostages subsequently recognizing him, the NTV television channel reported.
The operations headquarters in Beslan stressed that the group that seized the school was multinational. Most of the killed gunmen were born in Arab countries. The suicide bombers were trained by the al-Qaeda specialists, the agency quoted the secret service as saying.
An Al Qaeda operation.
President Bush is right to fight these folks, and John Kerry and his anti-war crowd is wrong.
These people want to murder our children.
"if we stoop to their level... then WE are as bad as.... blah blah blah?"
yeah... already saw it here. some freepers or trolls.
terrorists are not guaranteed trials.
No, Russia's 9/11 were bombings of apartment bulidings in Moscow, invasion of Dagestan, and NATO attack on Serbia. It all took place in 1999.
That is doubtful. They are more European Socialist Pacifists now. They sided with the Canadians and the French, and are not capable of defending themselves any longer.
They had their chance in Iraq. They have had terrorism for years, and little has been done.
They can expect killings and explosions for decades.
Do you mean that they would have had less killing and fewer massacres recently had the war in Iraq not happened? Do you mean that they "knew" our war efforts would bring more trouble for them?
Just to be clear for the idiot media
REBEL-opposition, fighting against the government
TERRORISM - violence committed by groups in order to intimidate a population or government into granting their demands
When you attack civilians, children no less, you have crossed the line from rebel to terrorist. Would the MSM just start calling it that!!!!
The UN will send a condemnation of these attacks, but if the governement assasinates Shamil Bassayev the UN will REALLY BE MAD (i.e. - Sheik Ahmed Yassin from Hamas)
By the way - has the UN condemend the bus boming in Israel from last week. I highly doubt it.
Thanks for the address.
Yes, and for our media to spend so much coverage on an oncoming Hurricane when we have do a weather channel and so much coverage of this political circus and not on to this vicious attack on humanity in Russia.
The only real coverage was on Savage Nation, Friday. Pictures will come out. I bet the liberal biased media does not want the fact that these terrorists, not freedom fighters, were of Arab decent. Putin's government's inadequate funding of their military could even further voters to swing toward the Bush camp. Everything is about Politics! The media will purposely show as little as possible.. after all it is in another country is the excuse. It even bothered me somewhat that the President in his speech at the RNC did not mention these children in Russia. I have decided Bush would have, if he could have; but was advised the Dems would take it as a political statement(like 9-11) and not a humanitarian one.
To know that those children were told to drink their urine, to be crowded together under extreme temperatures, passing out from the heat and lack of food and water put a damper on my excitement to share in the celebration of the RNC that night...but that's just me.
"I bet the liberal biased media does not want the fact that these terrorists, not freedom fighters, were of Arab decent."
Remember the DC sniper? I don't even know if it was mentioned once in the mainstream media that the guy was a Muslim convert. Of course that had nothing to do with his killing spree of random innocents. You can look at it two ways: Islam turns people into psychotic murderers or psychotic murderers are attracted to Islam.
I would prefer to stake him down spread-eagled over one of our large Texas fire-ant nests for a couple of days.
The DC sniper was thrown out of the National Gaurd, too.
Would ousting 40 Russian spies at the beginning of the Bush Presidency make headlines during the first 100 days of our Presidents term of office?
I wonder if this has any implications on current events.
I hope the Russians see their Shamil and raise them one Vlad...
"So it seems Russsian citizens do have the right to keep arms.
I don't think anybody cares about gun laws out there. Whoever wants a gun, simply gets one. Law or no law. I hope the Russians organize some militia or something. The guns are there, the organization is lacking."
Naah. Support your right to arm bears.
Yes, of course. That is why USA under Reagan together with Soviet Union supported Saddam Hussein. He was a bulwark against Islamic extremism. Now he is gone and another dam is broken. (The previous dam against radical Islam was Yugoslavia which was destroyed under Clinton.)
