2010 - Through social network monitoring in late 2010, Russian officials note ties between radical Tamerlan and William Plotnikov, a Russian born Canadian boxer, Islam convert and member of the terrorist organization Caucasus Emirate in Dagestan.

2011 - William Plotnikov gives Russian authorities Tamerlan’s name during an interrogation.

March 2011 - Russia intercepts calls between Mama and Tamerlan and possibly Dzhokhar and sends warning to FBI. Mama also on phone with someone in the Caucasus region of Russia who was/is on FBI list.

April 2011 or June 2011 - FBI closes file on Tamerlan and Mama.

July 1, 2011 – FBI puts Tamerlan on TECS list to monitor his travels.

Sept 2011 - Russia sends second warning, this time to CIA. At some point, US officials meet with family at their home and Tamerlan is defiant to them.

Oct 2011 - CIA puts Tamerlan and Mama on terrorist list.

April 2012 – Dagestani Center for Combating Extremism registered Tamerlan’s repeated meetings with radical Mahmud Mansur Nidal, 18, who had been under surveillance as a recruiter for the Dagestani insurgency. He was killed in a police operation in Makhachkala on May 19, 2012.

July 14, 2012 – Plotnikov is one of several insurgents killed in a battle with Russian security forces. Russia speculates Tamerlan may have been involved with Plotnikov and were searching for him.

July 17, 2012 - Tamerlan lands in US from Russian trip and has grown a full beard. Neighbors say a few weeks later he was clean shaven.

"....William Plotnikov, a Russian born Canadian boxer,...."

Probably doesn't mean anything, but terrorist #1 was into boxing.

Any other boxing jihadees out there? <8^} Maybe there is a network of them and that is how they communicate.

Time for allergy medicine and go to sleep!
