Steve Sailer connects the dots that Fox News ignores:
The MSM is uninterested (or afraid) to dig into the connection between the Tsarnaev clan and US intelligence.
This line from the Times story is open to many interpretations; none of them are particularly reassuring to Russia or Putin:
Okay. Still, you know, the Russkies did have reasons not to totally trust U.S. intelligence services when it came to the Tsarnaev family.
After all, the Bomb Brothers' Uncle Ruslan used to run a Chechen rebel front organization funneling donations from Al-Qaeda to the fight against Russia out of the house of his (now) ex-father-in-law, retired CIA insider Graham E. Fuller.
At a minimum, this suggests that the US government was indifferent to the terrorist threat posed by American citizens when the target was Russia.
At the time, American law enforcement officials believed that Mr. Tsarnaev posed a far greater threat to Russia.
A reasonable man might wonder of this indifference is evidence of hypocrisy in the Bush-Obama rhetoric surrounding the war on terror.
Throw in the Tsarnaev’s connection to US intelligence and the stench of hypocrisy grows thick and heavy.
Next straw: more questions than answers.
The anti-Russian animus of the MSM is so strong that this contradiction never gets an airing. The victims of Beslan are sent down the memory hole.
The Chechens' American friends
The Washington neocons' commitment to the war on terror evaporates in Chechnya, whose cause they have made their own….
There is also a Ukrainian nexus.
Edward Jay Epstein wrote a fascinating book on unsolved crimes. When investigating the death of ex-KGB agent Alexander Litvinenko and the murder of journalist Anna Politkovskaya Epstein found himself deep in the conspiratorial currents of Russian politics and its western annex.
According to Novaya Gazeta, the Moscow-based newspaper for which Politkovskaya reported, Pavlyuchenkov claimed in his pretrial testimony that Politkovskaya’s murder was ordered by two London-based enemies of Putin, billionaire Boris Berezovsky and Akhmed Zakayev, an organizer of the Chechen revolt (which coincides with Putin’s theory that the murder was staged as a provocation).
[Alexander Goldfarb] told me that Berezovsky had provided $ 50 million to dissident elements in Ukraine who participated in what became known as the Orange Revolution.
