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

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

MAKACHKALA, Russia -

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.”

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.”

‘Widow of Boston bomb suspect hires criminal lawyer’
By MICHELLE R. SMITH
Associated Press / May 8, 2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) —

SNIPPET: “Russell, 24, married Tamerlan Tsarnaev in 2010, and they had been living in Cambridge, Mass., with their 2-year-old daughter when the bombing happened. Russell has been staying in her family’s home in North Kingstown, just south of Providence, since her husband and brother-in-law were identified as suspects in the case.”

“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.”

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.”

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.””

Inquiry & Analysis Series Report No.977

“’Inspire’ Magazine Issue XI – First Issue Released Via Twitter – Review And Analysis: AQAP Praises Use Of Twitter, Reiterates Strategies Of Lone Wolf Jihad, Bringing Down U.S. Economy”

By: Steven Stalinsky and R. Sosnow*

SNIPPET: “On May 30, 2013, jihad supporters on Twitter disseminated links to Issue XI of Inspire, the English-language jihadi magazine produced by Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).[1] The issue includes threats to the American people by the group’s military commander Qassim Al-Rimi; and in it, AQAP attempts to capitalize on the Boston and London attacks to incite further attacks.

Most of the articles in this issue of the magazine focus on the Boston Marathon bombing. Inspire’s publishers clearly believe that they deserve credit for providing the Tsarnaev brothers with the motivation and operational know-how for the attack. More importantly, in this issue, AQAP continues to incite Muslims in the West to carry out similar attacks, by emulating the brothers as well as the perpetrators of the May 22 Woolwich murder and attacks. Thus, featuring prominently in this issue is a message from Al-Rimi warning the American people that these attacks will continue, and that their government is helpless to stop them.[2]

Cover image

Following the publication of Issue XI, on June 2, an audio warning by Al-Rimi was posted online; in it, he stated that that the Boston bombings revealed the fragility of security, urged Muslims to defend their religion, and said that making bombs such as the ones used in Boston was within “everyone’s reach.”[3]”

Federal Grand Jury Returns 30-Count Indictment Related to Boston Marathon Explosions and Murder of MIT Police Officer Sean Collier
U.S. Department of Justice

June 27, 2013

WASHINGTON—A federal grand jury returned a 30-count indictment against Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev for his alleged role in using weapons of mass destruction at the Boston Marathon to kill three individuals and maim or seriously injure many others, as well as for using a firearm to intentionally kill Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Police Officer Sean Collier.

Tsarnaev, aka “Jahar Tsarni,” 19, a U.S. citizen residing in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was charged today by indictment with the use of a weapon of mass destruction resulting in death and conspiracy; bombing of a place of public use resulting in death and conspiracy; malicious destruction of property resulting in death and conspiracy; use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence; use of a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence causing death; carjacking resulting in serious bodily injury; interference with commerce by threats or violence; and aiding and abetting.

“This indictment is the result of exemplary cooperation between federal prosecutors and a wide range of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to investigate the horrific attacks on the Boston Marathon two months ago,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “The department is firmly committed to achieving justice on behalf of all who were affected by these senseless acts of violence. And today’s action proves our unyielding resolve to hold accountable—to the fullest extent of the law—anyone who would threaten the American people or attempt to terrorize our great cities. I would like to thank our law enforcement partners, the FBI, the Department’s National Security Division, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts, and every investigator, agent, officer, attorney, analyst, and support staff member whose courage and commitment continues to make our communities and our nation safer.”

“Today’s indictment is the result of the dedicated and collective efforts of law enforcement and intelligence partners, working with a sense of urgency and purpose to find those responsible for these deadly attacks,” said FBI Director Robert S. Mueller. “These continuing efforts reflect the pursuit of justice for those who lost their lives and for the scores of individuals who were injured.”

“Our hearts go out to the victims of these horrendous acts of violence, and our gratitude to the courageous law enforcement officers who have given so much to protect the people of Boston and the United States,” said John Carlin, Acting Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. “We remain committed to obtaining justice in this matter and will continue to work side by side with our partners throughout the law enforcement and intelligence communities to protect the American people from future harm.”

“Today’s charges reflect the serious and violent nature of the events that occurred on April 15th and the tragic series of events that followed,” said Carmen Ortiz, U.S. Attorney for the District of Massachusetts. “The defendant’s alleged conduct forever changed lives. The victims, their families, and this community have shown extraordinary strength and resilience in the face of this senseless violence, and it is with the hundreds of injured, as well as Krystle, Lingzi, Martin, and Sean in mind that we proceed to ensure that justice is served in this case.”

The indictment alleges that beginning no later than February 2013 and continuing until Tsarnaev was apprehended on April 19, 2013, Tsarnaev and his brother Tamerlan conspired to use improvised explosive devices (IEDs) against people, property, and places of public use. Specifically, the indictment alleges that on April 15, 2013, during the 117th running of the Boston Marathon, Tsarnaev and his brother placed IEDs among the crowds of spectators who were cheering the runners on Boylston Street towards the marathon finish line. After placing the IEDs among the crowd, the indictment alleges, Tsarnaev and his brother detonated the bombs seconds apart, killing three people, maiming and injuring many more, and forcing a premature end to the marathon. The indictment alleges that the IEDs were constructed from pressure cookers, explosive powder, shrapnel, adhesives, and other items and were designed to shred skin, shatter bone, and cause extreme pain and suffering, as well as death.

The indictment also alleges that on April 18, 2013, the FBI released photographs of Tsarnaev and his brother, identifying them as suspects in the marathon bombings. These photographs were widely disseminated on television and elsewhere. The indictment alleges that hours later on April 18, Tsarnaev and his brother, armed with five IEDs, a Ruger P95 semi-automatic handgun, ammunition, a machete, and a hunting knife, drove in their Honda Civic to the MIT campus, where they shot MIT Police Officer Sean Collier and attempted to steal his service weapon.

The indictment further alleges that shortly after Tsarnaev and his brother killed Officer Collier, they carjacked a Mercedes and kidnapped the driver and forced him to drive to a gas station, robbing him of $800 along the way. After the driver managed to escape, the brothers are alleged to have driven the carjacked vehicle to the vicinity of Laurel Street and Dexter Avenue in Watertown, Massachusetts, where Watertown Police officers located them and tried to apprehend them. The indictment alleges that the brothers fired at the police officers and used four additional IEDs against them; then, Tsarnaev re-entered the carjacked vehicle, drove it directly at the officers, and ran over his brother as he managed to escape. Tsarnaev is alleged to have hidden in a dry-docked boat in a Watertown backyard until his arrest the following night.

Seventeen of the charges authorize a penalty of up to life in prison or the death penalty. The remainder authorize a maximum penalty of life in prison or a fixed term of years. Tsarnaev is scheduled to be arraigned on July 10, 2013.

“Russia says 50 groups in U.S. raise funds for North Caucasus extremists”

May 26, 2013

SNIPPET: “According to the Jamahiriya News Agency, Russian intelligence reveals that 50 organizations, many of which are Islamic charities, are actively soliciting and distributing funds from their headquarters in U.S. to terrorist groups in the North Caucasus—the same region where Tamerlan Tsarnaev journeyed prior to the Boston Marathon bombings. Islamic Relief, the largest Muslim charity in America, is included on Russia’s list. Read it all:

…According to the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs, over 60 international extremist organizations, about 100 foreign companies and 10 banking groups participate in providing financial, material and other assistance to the terrorists «touring» the Northern Caucasus. In the U.S. alone, almost 50 organizations are raising funds for the Northern Caucasian extremists. And this is not the entire list of the Chechen terrorists’ accomplices in the U.S.; these organizations began sponsoring the rebels from the moment the bands led by Basayev and Khattab (the latter of which is known to be an emissary of Ben Laden, a staff member of the CIA, and a Canadian citizen who was stripped of his native Jordanian citizenship for his links to American intelligence agencies) invaded the territory of Dagestan.

The following groups are actively raising funds in the U.S.:”

Federal Grand Jury Indicts Two Men for Obstruction of Justice in the Boston Marathon Bombing Investigation

U.S. Attorney’s Office
August 08, 2013

District of Massachusetts

BOSTON—A federal grand jury today returned a two-count indictment against two men previously charged with conspiracy to obstruct justice in the Boston Marathon bombing investigation.

Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, nationals of Kazakhstan who were residing in New Bedford on student visas, were charged today with conspiracy to obstruct justice and obstructing justice with the intent to impede the Boston Marathon bombing investigation. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov were originally charged on May 1, 2013 via criminal complaint.

Today’s indictment alleges that on the evening of April 18, 2013, after the FBI posted photographs of the two men suspected of carrying out the Marathon bombings (who were later identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev), Kadyrbayev received a text message from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev suggesting that he go to Tsarnaev’s “room and take what’s there.” Kadyrbayev, Tazhayakov, and another conspirator, according to the indictment, then went to Tsarnaev’s dormitory room and removed several items, including Tsarnaev’s laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks, and brought them to Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov’s apartment in New Bedford. Later that night, Kadyrbayev, with Tazhayakov’s knowledge and agreement, placed Tsarnaev’s backpack, which contained several items, including fireworks, in a garbage bag and put it in a trash dumpster outside their New Bedford apartment.

If convicted, Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov face up to 20 years in prison on the obstruction of justice count and up to five years in prison on the conspiracy count, each to be followed by up to three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine. Both face the possibility of being deported.

U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Vincent B. Lisi, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Boston Field Division, made the announcement today. This investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Boston Division, the Massachusetts State Police, and member agencies of the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), which is composed of more than 30 federal, state, and local enforcement agencies. The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Department of Public Safety, the City of New Bedford, New Bedford Police Department, Dartmouth Police Department, U.S. Department of Transportation-Office of Inspector General, U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), Essex County Sheriff’s Office, and Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations provided assistance in this investigation.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys B. Stephanie Siegmann and John A. Capin of Ortiz’s Anti-Terrorism and National Security Unit with the assistance of the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Cambridge Man Indicted for Making False Statements in the Boston Marathon Bombing Terrorism Investigation

U.S. Attorney’s Office
August 29, 2013

District of Massachusetts

WASHINGTON—A federal grand jury in Boston returned an indictment today against a Cambridge, Massachusetts man previously charged with making false statements during the Boston Marathon bombing terrorism investigation.

Robel Phillipos, 19, was indicted after having been previously charged via complaint in May 2013 with making a series of materially false statements to federal law enforcement officials during a terrorism investigation. Phillipos is charged with two counts of making false statements. The indictment also charges Dias Kadyrbayev, 19, and Azamat Tazhayakov, 19, both of New Bedford, Massachusetts, with conspiring to obstruct justice and obstructing justice with the intent to impede a terrorism investigation. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov are both nationals of Kazakhstan who were temporarily living in the United States pursuant to student visas.

As alleged in the indictment, on April 18, 2013, after the FBI posted photographs of the two men suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bombings (who were later identified as Tamerlan Tsarnaev and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev), Kadyrbayev received a text message from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev suggesting that he go to Tsarnaev’s “room and take what’s there.” Kadyrbayev, Tazhayakov, and Phillipos, according to the indictment, went to Tsarnaev’s dormitory room and removed several items, including Tsarnaev’s laptop computer and a backpack containing fireworks, and brought them to Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov’s apartment in New Bedford. Later that night, Kadyrbayev, with Tazhayakov’s knowledge and agreement, placed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s backpack, which contained several items, including fireworks, in a garbage bag and placed it in a dumpster outside their New Bedford apartment.

The indictment further alleges that between April 19, 2013 and April 25, 2013, law enforcement officials assigned to the Joint Terrorism Task Force interviewed Phillipos concerning material facts related to the terrorism investigation into the Boston Marathon bombing and one of the suspected bombers, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. During these interviews, Phillipos concealed the fact that he, Kadyrbayev, and Tazhayakov had gone into Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s dormitory room on the evening of April 18, 2013, and removed Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s backpack from his room. In so doing, he made numerous false and misleading statements to the agents.

U.S. Attorney Carmen M. Ortiz and Vincent B. Lisi, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s Boston Field Division, made the announcement today. This investigation was conducted by the FBI’s Boston Division, Massachusetts State Police, and member agencies of the Boston Joint Terrorism Task Force (JTTF), which is composed of more than 30 federal, state, and local enforcement agencies. The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth’s Department of Public Safety, City of New Bedford, New Bedford Police Department, Dartmouth Police Department, U.S. Department of Transportation-Office of Inspector General, U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), Essex County Sheriff’s Office, and Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigations provided assistance to this investigation.

If convicted, Phillipos faces a maximum penalty of up to eight years in federal prison on each of the two counts. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov face a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison on the obstruction of justice count and five years on the conspiracy count. All face up to three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine for each charge. Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov also face the possibility of being deported at the conclusion of this prosecution.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys B. Stephanie Siegmann and John A. Capin of Ortiz’s Anti-Terrorism and National Security Unit with the assistance of the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.

The details contained in the indictment are allegations. The defendants are presumed to be innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

Accused Boston bomber’s friends due in court on charges of cover-up
Reuters ^ | 9/13/2013
Posted on September 13, 2013 2:38:35 AM PDT by markomalley

Three college friends of accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were due in court on Friday to answer charges that they helped cover his tracks when the FBI was trying to find the people responsible for the April 15 attack.

The men, two exchange students from Kazakhstan and one from the Boston area, are charged with removing a laptop and a backpack containing empty fireworks shells from Tsarnaev’s room three days after receiving a text message from him telling them to “go to my room and take what’s there,” according to court papers.

Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, both from Kazakhstan, both face the charges of obstruction of justice and could face 25 years in prison or deportation. Robel Phillipos, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, has been charged with lying to investigators and could face up to 16 years in prison.

Defense Asks to Ease Prison Restrictions on Dzhokhar Tsarnaev
New York Magazine ^ | 10/3 | Margaret Hartmann
Posted on October 2, 2013 8:44:38 PM PDT by nickcarraway

Lawyers for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a judge on Wednesday to lift restrictions placed on the alleged Boston Marathon bomber that prevent him from communicating with other inmates, or visiting anyone other than his family and legal team. They say the restrictions are “unnecessarily harsh and isolating,” and hinder their work on his defense. “He is confined to his cell except for legal visits and very limited access to a small outdoor enclosure, on weekdays, weather-permitting,” says the motion. “The purported basis for these conditions lies in the crimes he is alleged to have committed prior to arrest, not any behavior during his confinement.”

Attorney General Eric Holder imposed the “Special Administrative Measures,” saying there’s a “high probability” that Tsarnaev might try to make “calls to co-conspirators to arrange terrorist or criminal activities.” The defense questioned whether Holder actually believes that, as Tsarnaev was in custody for four months before the rules were issued, and he “made no effort to communicate with non-family or media” during that time.

SNIPPET: “WOBURN, Mass. (AP) — A Massachusetts court issued an arrest warrant Monday for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev as prosecutors sought to preserve their right to try him on state charges in the killing of a police officer for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Tsarnaev, 20, remains in custody after pleading not guilty to 30 federal charges stemming from the April 15 explosions, which killed three people and injured more than 260.”

Joint Release from Massachusetts Law Enforcement Agencies
FBI Boston
October 18, 2013

Special Agent Greg Comcowich

In response to media inquiries about recent news reports relating to the marathon bombings, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston Division Vincent Lisi, Colonel Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police, and Commissioner Edward Davis of the Boston Police have released the following statement:

Previously, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force have responded to similar questions relating to whether or not the FBI, Boston Police, Massachusetts State Police, or other members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force knew the identities of the Boston Marathon bombers before the shootout. Members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force did not know their identities until shortly after Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s death when they fingerprinted his corpse. Nor did the Joint Terrorism Task Force have the Tsarnaevs under surveillance at any time after the assessment of Tamerlan Tsarnaev was closed in 2011. The Joint Terrorism Task Force was at M.I.T., located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, on April 18, 2013, on a matter unrelated to the Tsarnaev brothers. Additionally, the Tsarnaev brothers were never sources for the FBI nor did the FBI attempt to recruit them as sources.

There has been recent reporting relating to whether or not the FBI, Boston Police, Massachusetts State Police, or other members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force knew the identities of the bombers before the shootout with the alleged marathon bombing suspects and were conducting physical surveillance of them on April 18, 2013. These claims have been repeatedly refuted by the FBI, Boston Police, and Massachusetts State Police.

To be absolutely clear: No one was surveilling the Tsarnaevs, and they were not identified until after the shootout. Any claims to the contrary are false.

SNIPPET: “Lessons Learned

Commissioner Davis made a point to share some lessons learned from the response to this terrorist attack that might benefit other agencies:

• Tourniquets were critical to the survival of many of those injured by the bombs. As a result, all Boston police officers are now equipped with tourniquets.

• Cellular and satellite phones did not work during this response. The only form of communication was the police radio system. Other police agencies need to take this communication challenge seriously when they prepare and plan their responses.

• Have relationships with individuals in the media whom you can trust. There was a lot of misinformation being put out by the media. He recounted that it was very difficult to feed the media beast and do the investigation at the same time. He advised other agencies have strong social media personnel in place to handle the various accounts. After all, the police department’s Twitter account went from 53,000 followers to 304,000 and provided a great outlet for the agency to correct misinformation.”

LONDON, July 21 (Reuters) - Olympic organisers are “very alive” to the threat of a cyber attack on the London 2012 Olympics, made more challenging because of its evolving nature, senior Interior Ministry officials said on Tuesday.

Ticketing systems, the transport network and hotel bookings as well as security are among potential targets.

Olympic security officials are also planning for the possible diversion of aircraft to protect airspace around the venues from terrorist attacks, the officials said.

The greatest threat to security at the Games is international terrorism, the government’s latest “Safety and Security Strategy” report said.

“Trial Set for Boston Marathon Suspect’s Pals”

BOSTON
January 15, 2014 (AP)
By DENISE LAVOIE AP Legal Affairs Writer
Associated Press

SNIPPET: “Attorneys for Dias Kadyrbayev and Robel Phillipos had asked that the trial not be held until January 2015. But a lawyer for a third friend, Azamat Tazhayakov, asked for an earlier trial.

U.S. District Judge Douglas Woodlock scheduled the trial for June 23.

Prosecutors allege that Kadyrbayev and Tazhayakov, both natives of Kazakhstan and friends who attended the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth with Tsarnaev, removed a laptop and backpack containing fireworks from Tsarnaev’s dorm room three days after the bombing. They have pleaded not guilty to charges of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Phillipos has pleaded not guilty to charges of lying to authorities.

The April 15 bombings killed three people and injured more than 260.”

“Top Hill lawmakers concerned about Olympic security, amid new terror threats and attacks”

Published January 19, 2014

SNIPPET: “On Sunday, in a new video that was posted on the website of the Chechen militant group Vilayat Dagestan, two militants vowed that tourists and Russians attending the games would not be safe.

In the video, the Russian-speaking men sitting in front of black banners with Arabic verses warn Putin that if the games are held, “we will give you a present for the innocent Muslim blood being spilled all around the world.”

They add that “for the tourists who come there will be a present, too.”

On Friday, nine people were injured when a bomb exploded in the Russian southern province of Dagestan, which has become the center of an Islamist insurgency that has spread across the Caucasus region after two separatist wars in Chechnya.”

SNIPPET: “King said he is not only concerned about the Olympics, but that other major sporting events could be targets in the future, including the World Cup in Brazil.

“I’m afraid it will be a concern anywhere in the future,” he said.”

SNIPPET: “During a prison visit with his sister, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the accused Boston Marathon bomber, made a damaging statement that was overheard by an FBI agent, federal prosecutors said today in a court filing.”

SNIPPET: “Prosecutors disclosed in the filing that Tsarnaev’s attorneys requested in December that Tsarnaev be able to meet with each of his sisters. Since then, Tsarnaev has received two social visits. Such non-legal visits are restricted to one immediate family member under the special restrictions, prosecutors said.”
