Skip to comments.Why Russia’s Probe Into the Nemtsov Murder Does Not Stack Up
Posted on 03/10/2015 12:22:44 PM PDT by tlozo
Who knew Russia had such crack detectives not just fast in their investigation of the murder of Nemtsov but practically clairvoyant
they ignored the possibility that Nemtsovs conflict with the Kremlin had anything to do with the murder. And then there was the theory bizarre enough to make the victims friends do a double take: the sleuths suggested that some religious fanatic could have killed him for insulting Islam. Of all the powerful figures Nemtsov had opposed, insulted and tried to bring down to earth during his two decades in politics, the Prophet Mohammed was never one of them
Thats when things got really weird. Dadaevs family
had by that point started trying to clear his name
contacted one of the regions best-known human rights activists, Kheda Saratova... They called and asked for a consultation at our office in Grozny, the capital of Chechnya, Saratova tells TIME. But then they called back and cancelled, refused to explain anything, she says. It was strange
She suspects they may have been pressured not to seek help
It turns out the suspected murderer had served as deputy commander of an elite counter-terrorism unit in Chechnya, whose security officers pride themselves on being Putins most fanatically loyal shock troops. Many of them have gone to fight as volunteers alongside Russias proxy militias in eastern Ukraine over the past year, and in December, Kadyrov assembled about 20,000 of the men under his command, all armed to the hilt and dressed in full combat gear, for a pep talk inside a soccer stadium in his provincial capital. We will gladly fulfill any order, in any spot in the world where our President tells us to go, Kadyrov said at the stadium, referring to Putin. We will not disappoint him. The assembled troops then chanted, Allahu Akbar!

Would've been nice if they had put this much effort into investigating Benghazi (you remember, that incident that was cause by the offensive video).
This is the “reality TV” version of Kabuki theater.
Just what I was thinking. Emmm...when is Time going to investigate the non-investigation of the IRS by the “investigators” of the Justice Department over Obama’s use of the IRS to terrorize and intimidate his political opponents?
Keep holding your breath.
Isn’t this the wrong thread to be complaining about the press investigating something, or was your intention to run cover for the enemy, Putin?
Big things happening in Moscow right now....journalists told major announcement over weekend....flags taken down at Kremlin.
Looks like coup or Putin did have heart attack as rumored.
Also Duma Elites met in Crimea this week and many questioned why that happened...
Interesting things ...if Putins gone...everything changes.
