And, of course, the Obama administration will use this as yet abnother excuse to monitor and record the activities of law-abiding Americans.

Big Brother never misses any pretext to tighten his grip on the proles.

Matters not.

The MSM has already decided that Muzzies didn’t do it.

Some right wing wackos did.

And thatttttt’s the twuuuuth!

MSM: “We’re here to hire you when you absolutely, positively are so without ability that you cannot even go into politics.”

Anyone remember when the bomb went off outside there?

There is a good deal of cowardice in attacking the civilian population as the American public may become enraged(if there is anything left inside, a debatable proposition.)

The real challenge would be the media and politicians who have bodyguards and security advisors beyond all belief making it a real challenge. An added bonus resulting from attacks on our societies aforementioned vermin would be the unexpressed public approbation.

Militants from Russia’s North Caucasus join “jihad” in Syria
reuters ^ | Mar 6, 2013 | Thomas Grove and Mariam Karouny
Posted on March 7, 2013 10:46:57 AM PST by Mount Athos

Flanked by almost 20 men with rifles, Omar Abu al-Chechen kneels on a carpet and delivers a rousing speech urging fellow Muslims to support the ‘jihad’ against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Dressed almost entirely in black, the militant from Russia’s Chechnya region declares an Islamist state is within reach. Fellow fighters from the brigade of foreign militants he leads translate his Russian words into Arabic.

“Jihad needs very many things. Firstly it needs money. Much is dependent on money today for jihad,” said al-Chechen, his nomme de guerre, the leader of what rebels and websites call the Brigade of Migrants, an opposition group of foreign fighters.

“(We) have missed many chances, but truly today there is a chance to establish (an Islamic state) on Earth,” he said.

Syrian rebels confirmed separately that he is in Syria and the leader of the brigade.

One Syrian opposition source said the Chechens are the second biggest force of foreigners after Libyans who joined the Syrian uprising after overthrowing and killing Muammar Gaddafi.

A rebel source said 17 fighters from the North Caucasus were killed in fighting outside Aleppo last month.

Calling itself the Caucasus Emirate, Umarov’s Islamist militant group has promised to attack the [Winter Olympic] Games. It claimed responsibility for a suicide bombing at Moscow’s Domodedovo airport in January 2011 that killed 37 people and also said it was behind near-simultaneous suicide bombings in the Moscow subway that killed 40 people in 2010.

(Reuters) -

SNIPPET: “Islamist rebels have vowed to take their bombing campaign from the North Caucasus to the Russian heartland in the year before presidential elections, hitting transport and economic targets. They have also leveled threats at the 2014 Winter Olympics, scheduled for the Black Sea resort town of Sochi, a region some militants consider “occupied.””

SNIPPET: “No group has yet taken responsibility for the attack, but dozens of Internet surfers, writing in Russian, praised the suicide bomber on unofficial Islamist site”

SNIPPET: “The attack raised questions over Russian security — one month after it won the right to host the 2018 World Cup.”

NOTE The following text is a quote:

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.

“Trial Set for Boston Marathon Suspect’s Pals”

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.”
