An uncle of the Boston bombers was previously married to a CIA officer's daughter for three years, it emerged today.
Ruslan Tsarni, who publicly denounced his two terrorist nephews' actions and called them 'Losers', even lived with his father-in-law agent Graham Fuller in his Maryland home for a year.

Here’s the problem....The CIA dude should possess “gut” instincts.
Boston Bombing Ping!!
“Graham E. Fuller is a former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA, a former senior political scientist at RAND, and a current adjunct professor of history at Simon Fraser University. He is the author of numerous books about the Middle East, including The Future of Political Islam. He has lived and worked in the Muslim world for nearly two decades.”
As far as we know the uncle never hurt anyone and
is the only one to denounce the two.
He let the agency 26 years ago. The uncle lived in the house 1 year, and after he retired 4 years earlier.
Interesting story, but hardly relevant.
You’ve nailed it, the USA/Constitution are under attack from many directions, internally, externally, by many factions all working for “hope and change” and destruction of freedom.
Interesting tidbit from the article:
“FBI agents today said they had tracked down Misha and believed he had no link to the terror attacks.”
Any verification of this? Considering the source, here...
“the current tensions that exist between the East and the West have geopolitical rather than religious origins and that these tensions “
Bullshyte. The religious element is self-evident to anyone with common sense.
Quack, Waddle - The GS LIFER Koolaid drinker/peddler says:
“Proponents of liberal political Islam emphasize human rights and democracy, tolerance and cooperation.”
It’s a religion of peas.
May or may not be relevant ... but nothing is adding up here.
What I found of interest is his studies in Russian minorities, and then his daughter married one. So, there was a continued interest.
My, my....how conveeeenient. Our so-called “national security” apparatus is laughable.
If you want to be secure, get your own weapons.
For goodness sakes, this is a country of those who left other countries. Immigrants have it good, real good.
And I agree with the author...America would have been better off without this family, not the other way around.
Is somebody going to be indicted now for leaking this information about a CIA agent???
Attorney General Eric Holder said on Saturday that everything was done appropriately in the questioning of the Boston Marathon bombings suspect.
Well I mean, the decision to Mirandize him is one that was totally consistent with the laws that we have, Holder told CNN as he made his way into the White House Correspondents Dinner. We had a two-day period to question him under the public safety exception, so I think everything was done appropriately.
>>but hardly relevant.
Take a looks at Fuller’s bibliography. The guy’s one of the GS LIFER koolaid peddlers at RAND selling the “It’s a religion of peas meme”.
That’s very relevant considering the impact upon policy that talking-head fools like Fuller have evidently had.
My thoughts too - what a great cover for someone who means us ill...
Sadly, he is correct yet so very wrong. They did legally give the FBI the full 48 hours to question him.
When this nest is cleaned out, somebody needs to introduce a new resolution regarding Miranda rights. The way it stands now, sux
Interesting. So, in other words, he was a sympathizer.
This looks like the 50’s with commie sympathizers. Same thing, different animal. Who ARE these people??
>>Who ARE these people??
Examples of why Government Service should not be a profession?
What I find interesting is the house in question is nothing exciting. Google maps shows it to be a simple ranch style that apparently was too small so the garage was enclosed. Wouldn't you expect a high ranking CIA official to live in a much nicer house?
We’ve heard from crazy mama, equally crazy aunt in Canada, angry uncle, papa, and a short note from the inlaws after they quickly put their house on the market. We’ve not heard a peep out of their two sisters or the wife.
Perhaps 46 - 50 years ago, it was more of the norm. He retired 26 yrs ago. Salaries werent as high then, and people tended to live within their means
I’m beginning to think I’m watching a spin-off series from the FX TV series, The Americans.
Ah yes, the plot thickens.
Well 26 years ago was way before 9/11 so his expertise was not for front. . I could see the agency call him up on immediate need. Just like they do in the movies. :)
Son of the very conservative 1950s literary critic Edmund Fuller.
During the Cold War a lot of the people who went into Russian studies and then into the government had a great love for Russia, but hated Communism.
Fuller, who started out studying Russia, may have been of that sort and moved on to trying to work out the same relationship to the Middle East and Islamism.
At any event, I wouldn't automatically assume that he was an Alger Hiss type.
I get your point, just not sure I agree with your analysis.
Nonetheless, there are far too many muzzies sympathizers in the upper ranks of our government. It skews their ability to be objective in regards to real threats. jmho
I agree with you, I saw his picture, her picture, and just couldn’t understand what she saw in his snakey hair self!
Must be drugs.
Not necessarily true.
This guy is obviously well-connected. It's possible he used his influence and connections to assist the Tsarnaevs in getting asylum here.
The problem is that the judge arrived and read him his “Miranda rights” after only 16 hours of questioning.
Why? Who sent her (the judge) and who wanted to shut up the terrorist?
Federal judges are legally superior to FBI agents, so there was no way they could have resisted and this actually wasn’t the fault of the now fabulously incompetent FBI.
Now I remember this guy. His book was going for $1.00 at the Dollar Tree. I skimmed through it, saw it was a bunch of p.c.b.s. and saved myself a dollar. Best dollar I ever saved.
Perhaps, but that is not in the article. Are you indicating he got the brothers uncle asylum 20 yrs ago so that his nephews could come over later and plot an attack when they grew up. Im a bit confused?
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
Sorry, I thought I was perfectly clear, but let me restate. I'm curious as to whether this guy used his connections and influence on behalf of the Tsarnaevs when they applied for refugee status - not implying he was involved in the plot.

Answer to scrabblehack and Gen.blather from the other thread....
They don’t like too close an association with “foreign nationals”.
Yes it WOULD have to be reported!
The posts for reference:
Ive not worked for CIA....but can he keep his security clearance? At least the marriage would trigger an inquiry (or at least it used to).

Also sharing a residence with someone has to be declared to the security office too (Im talking DoD here but so far as I know CIA was stricter).

I think the question is CIA / Graham Fuller support for the Chechen rebels back during the Cold War and whether and to what extent our government’s ties with the rebels were maintained after the collapse of the USSR - whether for intelligence purposes or perhaps in the context of our support for the Georgians or for other reasons. And whether the Boston bombing is in any sense blowback from that, just as the rise of AQ was in some sense related to our support of the Afghan rebels. I certainly would not dismiss this as just a coincidence without taking a hard look at it.
Retired CIA officer Graham Fuller confirmed to Al-Monitor Saturday that his daughter was previously married to an uncle of the suspects in the Boston Marathon attacks, but called rumors of any links between the uncle and the Agency absurd.
“the system worked” was what Big Sis would say.
