“Officials probe links between Canadian jihadist, Boston bombing suspect”

April 30, 2013 |Arsen Mollayev And Lynn Berry, The Associated Press


SNIPPET: “Plotnikov — who was born in Russia but immigrated to Toronto with his parents as a teen — was killed in Dagestan, where he had travelled to join Islamic militants.”

SNIPPET: “In a separate report, Russia’s Novaya Gazeta newspaper said security officials suspected ties between Tsarnaev and Plotnikov.

The newspaper added that two men had social networking links that brought Tsarnaev to the attention of Russian security services for the first time in late 2010.”

SNIPPET: “Some similarities can certainly be seen between Tsarnaev and Plotnikov — both men were amateur boxers of roughly the same age whose families had moved from Russia to North America when they were teens. They also both turned to Islam, expressed radical beliefs and travelled to Dagestan.”

Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov - Criminal Complaint

Robel Phillipos - Criminal Complaint




NOTE The following text is a quote:

Three Men Arrested in Connection with Marathon Bombing Investigation

U.S. Attorney’s Office
May 01, 2013
District of Massachusetts

Three men were arrested and charged today in connection with the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.

Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, both of New Bedford, were charged in a criminal complaint with conspiracy to obstruct justice by conspiring to destroy, conceal, and cover up tangible objects belonging to suspected marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, namely a laptop computer and backpack containing fireworks. A third man, Robel Phillipos, 19, of Cambridge, was charged with willfully making materially false statements to federal law enforcement officials during a terrorism investigation. According to the affidavit accompanying the complaint, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov are both nationals of Kazakhstan who entered the United States on student visas. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov face a maximum sentence of five years in prison and $250,000 fine. Phillipos faces a maximum sentence of eight years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

United States Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Richard DesLauriers, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston Field Office of the FBI, announced the charges today. This investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Boston Division, the Boston Police Department, the Massachusetts State Police, and member agencies of the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force, which is composed of more than 30 federal, state, and local enforcement agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement-Homeland Security Investigations, U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Secret Service, the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority, and others. In addition, the Watertown Police Department, the Cambridge Police Department, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Police Department, the Boston Fire Department, the National Guard, and police, fire, and emergency responders from across Massachusetts and New England played critical roles in the investigation and response.
The charges contained in the complaints are merely accusations, and the defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

“Boston Bombers’ Motivations No Mystery”

by IPT News • Apr 30, 2013 at 2:42 pm

SNIPPET: “As investigators continue to search for possible accomplices in the Boston Marathon bombings, and clues as to how Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were radicalized enough to commit violence, two writers say one mystery is obvious.

The embrace of a radical Islamist ideology was central to the attack, which mirrored plans spelled out in al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula’s Inspire magazine, academic Jeffrey M. Bale and Muslim physician Qanta Ahmed write in separate columns.

“[T]hey had embraced a radical Islamist ideology that enjoined them to wage armed jihad against the ‘infidel’ enemies of Islam,” writes Bale, director of the Monterey Terrorism Research and Education Program, in a column for the U.S. Naval Institute. “It hardly matters why the Tsarnaev brothers became disgruntled or angry—people can become disgruntled and angry for a vast array of both legitimate and delusional reasons. What matters is that this underlying emotional attitude made them receptive to and ultimately caused them to embrace Islamist doctrines, which offered them an explicit, coherent, and theologically sanctioned justification for perpetrating violence.”

Ahmed, writing in the New York Post, agrees.”

“Hearing: Local Law Enforcement Never Informed About Tsarnaev Brothers”

by John Rossomando
May 9, 2013 at 5:46 pm

SNIPPET: “Last month’s Boston Marathon bombings exposed that federal and local law enforcement agencies still haven’t corrected failures in intelligence sharing emphasized after the 9/11 attacks, according to testimony given Wednesday before the House Homeland Security Committee.

“We learned over a decade ago, the danger in failing to connect the dots. The cornerstone of the 9/11 Commission Report was that agencies had ‘stove-piped’ intelligence, which prevented us from seeing potential terror plots,” Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul said in his opening statement. “In fact, the DHS (Department of Homeland Security) was created in the wake of 9/11 to help fix this problem. My fear is that the Boston bombers may have succeeded because our system failed.

“I was disturbed in the days following the attack to read some ‘officials’ had closed the case on whether there was a ‘foreign connection,’” when the FBI had just begun its investigation,” McCaul continued. “As a former counterterrorism prosecutor, this rush to judgment was both premature and irresponsible.”

Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis testified that his department received no information about Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from the FBI prior to April 19, when the rest of the world learned their identities.”

“Cops: Slain Russian had history of rage, violence”

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

by: O’Ryan Johnson, Laurel J. Sweet

SNIPPET: “Ibragim Todashev — the Russian shot dead overnight by the FBI while being questioned in connection with the marathon bombing and a Waltham triple murder — was arrested by Boston police in 2010 after a road rage incident in Downtown Crossing, and by Florida police just weeks ago after a violent parking lot assault.

The FBI and law enforcement sources say Todashev, 27, a former Cambridge resident, was being questioned by agents and Massachusetts state troopers when he attacked an agent with a knife and was shot dead.”

Air Force couple recovering after Boston blasts”

3 June 2013

SNIPPET: “While his injuries are healing, he can’t shake the questions that bother him. How could this happen? Why did this happen to my wife instead of me? How can I make this better?

“At the end of the day, though, we’re both still alive, and I thank God for that every day,” Adam said.

Both were released from the hospital and are home now. But their days are still filled with physical therapy appointments and doctor visits.

“It’s going to be a long, slow road to recovery,” Adrianne said.

One leg isn’t slowing Adrianne down, either.

“I told myself I will be walking in a few months, dancing a little while after that and I want to run the Boston Marathon next year,” she said.

Adam is heading back to work at Hanscom AFB and plans to stay in the Air Force.

“Really, we’re just taking it one day at a time,” he said. “Some are good, some are bad, but we’re together and that’s what matters.””
