Skip to comments.After Attacks, Administration Offers to Help Russia Counter 'Folks Who Want to Cause Mischief'
Posted on 12/30/2013 6:52:29 PM PST by Nachum
The Obama administration offered to work on Sochi Olympics security issues with Russia after a pair of bombings in Volgograd killed at least 31 people.
President Vladimir Putin gave instructions to the National Anti-Terrorism Committee to step up security measures across all of Russia and specifically in Volgograd region, the Kremlin said Monday. The president will receive daily reports from the NAC on the measures being taken along with regular situation reports.
Putin had not emerged to make a personal statement on the bombings, which occurred at a train station and on a bus.
The train station bomber was reportedly Pavel Pechyonkin, a former paramedic who converted to Islam and joined militants in Dagestan. In March, Pechyonkins parents videotaped a plea to their son to drop his arms and come home. I dont believe that Allah has ever said that one must kill people, his mother said. Imagine that somebody were to kill your parents, how would that make you feel? Why are you turning children into orphans?
Pechyonkin taped his own video response. Why should we follow those Christian commandments, when Allah, may he be glorified, urges us to fight those kafirs. Why shouldnt we leave their children orphaned? he said. I am not inventing anything from the Koran, I am reading.
National Security Council spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden said in a statement today that the United States condemns the terrorist attacks that struck the Russian city of Volgograd and sends deepest condolences to the families of the victims with hopes for the rapid healing of those wounded.

murdering 24 people in bomb attacks is “mischief”??
Sounds like Obama is going to stop them damn kids from toilet papering the Kremlin.
He is a high school valedictorian in a time warp.
Little Barry would only get in Vlad’s way!
[31 dead in Volgograd] = [mischief]
“Folks”. I’m sooooooO sick of that word. Is that the new ‘comrade’?
“Folks” used to be us. Now folks is synonymous with youths...
I'll advised to speak of general security when addressing a terrorist incident but I don't see where the word mischief was directed towards acts of terror.
He is nowhere close to a valedictorian, at any level. He was a choom ganger in High School, and there is no indication that he distinguished himself academically ever.
Drool cup diplomacy.
Mischief? My definition of mischief doesn’t include over two dozen corpses.
Do you really think that Putin is going to believe anything that mac daddy says?
This may sound even stupider, but I don’t see the money quote in reference to this incident. I know the administration has used the phrase in a more general sense.
God, I miss Reagan.
What was it that John Kerry called it ?
After the Boston bombing debacle, I doubt anyone wants the help of Obama’s security team.
I didn’t mean to inflate his qualifications. I was merely trying to say that he’s a mental midget.
To use the phrase in any reference after the death of so many is simply moronic, regardless of the general sense, or specific. He has cornered the market on stupid with this one.
If he is just reading and following the qoran, then that unholy book needs to be banned as hate literature.
I have a feeling Vlad will entertain us with his response.
He should do it shirtless.
Well...we ARE sending the HOMO BRIGADE to the opening ceremony....that should REALLY help /s
I don’t know. All the MSM news readers sounded kind of elated about the attacks. Not a single one of them commented on the danger that His Arrogance has put the queers that are supposed to represent his administration into. He sent his queers but he and Slow Joe are afraid to attend.
Three words: NSA!
“wow” is right!
Just think, (shudder), Obama might send in a flight of Obamadrones to cross de Nile River!
They don’t award the Nobel Peach Prize to just any fool!
Me, too. Think O’Reilly popularized it ”looking after the folks.”
The preferred plural of “folks” is “A bunch of Folks.”
The above is taken, Liberally, from the Haaaaaaaaavud Edition of the Obamaspeak Dictionary.
Democrats must be so proud - - - - .
Well, she is Muslim but she doesn’t know that Allah told his people “If you meet an infidel, cut him down. Allah will not punish you...” Of course Allah told Muslims to kill non Muslims. Why doesn’t she know this. He is telling the truth when he says he’s not making it up, he’s reading. Say, that will make the MSM try to hush this, right?
I heard that woman from the State Dept talking about Benghazi and calling the al queda terrorists folks. I detest the use of this word. Bush always used it and BO does too, no matter how evil the bastards are they call them “folks”. It’s ludicrous.
I thought you had to have A’s to get into Harvard. Wonder what the choom ganger’s grades were-not A’s.
Terrorists -> Freedom Fighters -> Mischief Makers
They were not A’s. That’s why he has to hide his college transcripts. He was an affirmative action admittee, with assistance by a Saudi financier.
You beat me too it. The media has created this myth regarding the persona of Obama. He is supposed to have been at the top of every class he ever attended, and some Uber-intellectual who graces us lower mortals with his presence. The reality, as you aptly noted, is that he was some under achieving doper whose academic records have had to be expunged and hidden - otherwise we'd all point at him and laugh. Way to go Media scum.
"major events such as the Olympic games are an opportunity for thieves or for other folks who want to cause mischief, Harf said."
According to the article, the context was about the bombings and security concerns there.
All they have to do is make Russia a moose-limb free nation. Problem solved.
I think Obama uses “folks” to designate people he despises. It’s one of many oblique signals he sends his people—they’re people, not folks.
Have you ever heard him say “legislation for those gay and transgender folks?”
24 Russians murdered by muslim terrorists is “mischief” and 4 Americans killed in Benghazi is a bump in the road.
we can’t even protect against people we got warned about, no one will take us seriously, we would be over there searching old ladies and kids in wheel chairs while the terrorists waltzed by
Thanks. I just couldn’t see that , I guess too old and tired after work , and I went over it twice!
And I don’t think it’s possible for me to hate a human being any more than I do Obama. I loathe, despise, abhor, detest him.
Many in the News business refer to terrorists and murderers, pedophiles as “gentlemen” too.
It always disgusts me. Those people are not gentlemen.
“And I dont think its possible for me to hate a human being any more than I do Obama. I loathe, despise, abhor, detest him.”..
Ya beat me to it.
I’m always open to new words. Those are all I could think of on by first cup of coffee.
Folksy talking down to Putin is going to go over real well.
