Every major news story coming out of the countries of the former Soviet Union should be viewed as possible deliberately crafted disinformation.
This highly inflammatory story should be treated with the utmost caution.
If it is true, or even partially true, it places a whole new significance on the Norwegian Massacre story.
From Russias Novosti
Norways twin terror suspect Anders Behring Breivik trained at a secret paramilitary field camp in Belarus earlier this year, a Belarusian opposition politician said on Thursday, citing security sources.
Breivik visited Belarus several times. This spring, as part of his preparations for his twin attacks, he visited Minsk, where he underwent training at a secret paramilitary field camp, Mikhail Reshetnikov, the head of the opposition Belarusian Party of Patriots, told the Gazeta.ru online newspaper.
He cited sources within Belaruss security organs.
Breivik, 32, has admitted to carrying out a bombing in Oslo, which killed eight, and a mass shooting at a Labor Party youth camp on the nearby island of Utoya, which left 68 dead. He has not accepted criminal responsibility, however, saying his actions were atrocious but necessary measures intended to save Norway and Western Europe from a Muslim takeover.

Sounds to me on first reading that the speaker from the opposition party in Belarus is intent on attaching guilt by association to the ruling party of Belarus. Nothing Breivik did was inconsistent with his shooting club membership and the practicing he legally did there.
The Russians are the only people on Earth who are even more fond of crazy conspiracy theories than the Arabs.
“Every major news story coming out of the countries of the former Soviet Union should be viewed as possible deliberately crafted disinformation.”
As should every “news” story from the AP, Reuters, NY Times, CNN, Washington Post, etc.
That said, this one sure feels like it’s full of tin foil...
I would think that he got training from somewhere.
It was very well done.
