I was told by a source that I can not reveal that, the Russians are in bed with us in the WOT. For reasons I can't even understand, the appearance MUST be deceiving. Probably has something to do with the 'keeping your friends close and your enemies closer' theory.

If you look at what is going on within Russia, my guess is that the Russians are using the pretext of cooperation on the WOT to cover their return to totalitarianism. They are also colluding with Islamic terrorist sponsoring regimes and arming just about everyone of the publicly defined 'enemies of the US'. In other words what you heard was disinfo from a Russian placed spy or asset. Turn them in NOW.

The Russianphobes see Russia as our enemy, but those in the intelligence community do not agree. The following is an e-mail I recently received from Dan Darling.

Mr. Xxxxx,

I am deeply flattered by your comments and please convey my best wishes to your wife's nephew.

The problem that exists in recognizing the Chechen ties to al-Qaeda (or al-Qaeda ties to other entities) is that among both the expert and the chattering classes there is deep unease about the way that Russia has conducted its campaign in Chechnya, but instead of offering constructive criticism they have attempted to deny the conflict any legitimacy by trying to engage in extremely legalistic and straw man arguments surrounding the ties of a number of Chechen and in particular Chechen Arab leaders and al-Qaeda. It's pure cognitive dissonance if you refuse to recognize that Khattab was bin Laden's protege, Abu Walid was from the same tribe as 3 of the 9/11 hijackers, Abu Omar al-Saif has openly called for Saudi al-Qaeda members to fight in Iraq, and Abu Hafs al-Urduni is openly allied with Zarqawi and then argue that there is no al-Qaeda connection to Chechnya.

Another issue that exists as a result of the Cold War in conservative circles is that a lot of people are still operating on Cold War-era blinders and hence aren't seeing the forest amidst all the trees.

Best,
Dan
