A bit more info: The Russian learned from our prisoner problems: none of the terrorists were captured alive.
New data on Beslan school attackers
RBC, 05.09.2004, Vladikavkaz 15:02:32.According to witnesses, 32 militants were involved in the school siege in Beslan, Sergey Fridinsky, Deputy Prosecutor General for the South Federal District, told reporters today. He said the bodies of 30 of them have been found. Four bodies were found last night. There were people of different ethnic origins among them.
Earlier, the number of the Beslan attackers was put at 26. Fridinsky stressed that none of the rebels managed to escape. None of them was captured alive, either.
Sounds like the Ruskies got that choice right, at least!
I hope that is just for public consumption. Hopefully, the truth is "none of the terrorists will ever be seen alive again, but a few were captured".. and are being questioned so the Russians can focus their vengeance.
"amazed that MSM is not covering this..."
Once the connections are all clear and set out,
Bush should have a joint announcement with Putin.
Or the new US Intelligence Czar.
The Al Quaeda connection must be saturated into the public's awareness.
