NYC Plans Simulated WMD Attack in Subway System and Streets

The New York City Police Department plans to carry out the largest-ever simulated chemical attack in July. Working with the *US Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory, it will release odorless, harmless Perfluorocarbon tracer gases (PFTs) throughout the NYC subway system to better understand and monitor the risks posed by airborne contaminants, including chemical, biological and radiological (CBR) weapons...The Subway-Surface Air Flow Exchange (S-SAFE) project commissioned by the NYPD was funded through a $3.4 million Department of Homeland Security Transit Security Grant... the first of its scale to study airflow in a dense, complex urban environment both below and above-ground. Researchers from Argonne National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory, with additional meteorologists and engineers, will support Brookhaven's scientists as they track the movement of tracer gases detected by air sampling devices in select locations on streets and in the subway system...NYPD will also use data to optimize emergency responses...
The NYPD works for the best but plans for the worst when it comes to potentially catastrophic attacks such as ones employing radiological contaminants or weaponized anthrax"
Police Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly, April 24, 2013 press release.

One of ten national laboratories overseen and primarily funded by the Office of Science of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), Brookhaven National Laboratory conducts research in the physical, biomedical, and environmental sciences, as well as in energy technologies and national security. Brookhaven Lab also builds and operates major scientific facilities available to university, industry and government researchers. Brookhaven is operated and managed for DOE's Office of Science by Brookhaven Science Associates, a limited-liability company founded by the Research Foundation for the State University of New York on behalf of Stony Brook University, the largest academic user of Laboratory facilities, and Battelle, a nonprofit applied science and technology organization. http://www.bnl.gov/newsroom/news.php?a=11532


Boston Attack Renews Fears About Homegrown Terrorism

“U.S. counterterrorism policy since 2001 has focused largely on killing terrorists overseas or preventing them from getting into the U.S. But the Boston bombings show how the diffusion of terrorist tactics easily transcends borders. Countering small groups of individuals inside the U.S. can be a bedeviling assignment. Bruce Riedel, director of the Intelligence Project at the Brookings Institution Washington think tank, said the Boston attack was likely a harbinger. “We are likely to see this as the future face of terrorist threats to the United States,” he said, adding that the case of a small number of radicalized participants who have lived in the U.S. and execute a plot is “the counterterrorist community’s worst nightmare, homegrown, self-radicalizing terrorism that learns its skill set off the Internet.”

Israeli Technology Aids in Deciphering Boston Attack
4/28/13 Moriya Ben-Yosef, http://www.israeldefense.com/?CategoryID=512&ArticleID=2089
The Video Synopsis technology developed by BriefCam makes it possible to summarize an hour and more of footage into a one minute video, in real time or after an event, providing a precise intelligence picture. The technology has a been installed around the world in police, HLS, intelligence entities and others...

Israeli technology may have helped identify the alleged Boston bombers
5/8/13 http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/business/technology/130508/israe...
One week after the Boston bombing, questions remain about the attack, the suspects — the Tsarnaev brothers — and their motive. GlobalPost reports on the wide-ranging investigation that spans from Boston to Russia and beyond...In 2011, the US government acquired Video Synopsis technology from the Jerusalem-based startup that created it, BriefCam...The technology separates a static background from a dynamic foreground, superimposing events so an hour of activity can be viewed in one minute. FBI is not commenting on the specific technologies used to identify the two men as acting out of place at the event.... But Amit Gavish, BriefCam's general manager for the Americas, told GlobalPost “The relevant agencies are clients of ours,” referring to the law enforcement groups involved in the Boston hunt...BriefCam’s Video Synopsis extracts activity that took place at different times to present it as simultaneous events, then condenses the time frame from 60 minutes real-time activity to 60 seconds review time, allowing the viewer to see all the events in a shrunken period of time and to individually interpret the findings. “No other technology will allow them to do so” Gavish said....

Israeli Doctors are Treating Boston Bombing Suspect

** The Blaze Editor-in-Chief Scott Baker: background includes: Voice of America, Washington, D.C.; head of the Broadcast Journalism School at the Leadership Institute in Arlington, Virginia, for 15 years; CBS News in New York
As 19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev “clings to life,”Israeli media *revealed that two of the senior doctors treating Tsarnaev have abundant past experience treating victims of terror because they’re from Israel. Dr. Kevin (Ilan) Tabb, president and CEO of the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston told the Israeli website Ynet  Tsarnaev is in stable condition but that because of wounds may never be able to speak again. Tabb received his medical degree at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem and is a board member of Hadassah-Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem... background gave him a unique perspective responding to Monday’s terrorist attack.
Dr. Daniel Talmor, the Israeli physician ER at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center tells Israel Army Radio Tsarnaev has “serious injuries, but I believe he will live.” Police asked medical staff not to offer further details on the suspect who Talmor says is in isolation with “very, very tight security.”...The feeling is always that Israel is home, especially in days like today” Talmor worked in Israel in the 1990s and treated victims of Palestinian terror attacks then that killed and maimed civilians....“The subject of a mass terrorist act is something we practice a lot. I think one of the reasons for the good treatment the patients received on Monday is because we were already trained for a mass terrorist act at the marathon. “The staff responded professionally to the wounded... to both of the terrorists… the main feeling of the staff is a feeling of closure that they were able to capture the terrorist and to arrest him.... treating him like any seriously injured patient, professionally, exactly like Israeli doctors, Israeli staff treat all the injured who arrive...Former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Martin Indyk also noted the similarity with Israel’s experience with Palestinian suicide bombings... on a visit to Israel this weekend, he told Israel Channel 2, “It’s strange I’m here…and it’s happening back home...Home grown terrorism is a very scary thing…to imagine they are in our beds”. .
Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren described the shared U.S.-Israeli experience of being in the crosshairs of terrorists:“The people of Boston, who on the day of the bombing were celebrating liberty’s birthday, will not submit. Our experience in Israel has taught us that communities and caregivers, police and security forces, elected leaders and volunteers can unite at such times and block terrorists from achieving their objectives” .

The investigation into Monday’s deadly bombing at the Boston Marathon has officially gone international: law enforcement officials from Israel have been sent to the United States to assist in the probe. Israel Police Chief Yohanan Danino says he has dispatched officials to Boston, Massachusetts, where they will meet with Federal Bureau of Investigation agents and other authorities, the Times of Israel Reports. Citing an earlier report published by the newspaper Maariv, Times of Israel writes that Danino has dispatched police officers to participate in discussions that “will center on the Boston Marathon bombings and deepen professional cooperation between the law enforcement agencies of both countries.”
The paper reports Israeli police planned the trip before the deadly bombings Monday but discussions will now shift focus... Israel President Shimon Peres said In an address Tuesday,...“When it comes to events like this, all of us are one family. We feel a part of the people who paid such a high price. God bless them. Today the real problem is terror, and terror is not an extension of policy: Their policy is terror, their policy is to threaten. Terrorists divide people, they kill innocent people.” About 20 hours after two bombs detonated near the finish line of the annual race, US President Barack Obama went on record...saying from the WH...“This was a heinous and cowardly act, and given what we now know the FBI is investigating it as an act of terrorism.”...he directed his administration to implement “appropriate security measures to protect the American people,”..New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg confirmed he had dispatched law enforcement officers from the Big Apple to assist in the investigation meeting with agents at a Boston fusion center...“

Chechen Terror Usually Aimed at Russia
4/19/13 Updated Wall St. Journal http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788732476340457843265330423385...
MOSCOW—The revelation that the prime suspects in the Boston Marathon attack are Chechen brothers who emigrated to the U.S. has put a spotlight back on a region that has been a source of violence in Russia ever since the Kremlin crushed a separatist insurgency there. The suspects, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, and their family emigrated to the U.S. in stages around 10 years ago, having fled violence that rocked Chechnya in the 1990s, a family friend told The WSJ. No motive for the Boston bombings has been publicly identified.
Rebels in Chechnya began agitating for independence...in the wake of the Soviet Union's 1991 collapse. The Kremlin sent in troops to quell the rebellion over the course of two bloody wars. In recent years Chechens have carried out a series of terrorist attacks in Russia years aimed at destabilizing the Kremlin's hold...Only a few hundred Chechen families have settled in the U.S., mostly on the West Coast, said Almut Rochowanski, program director of the Chechnya Advocacy Network in New York..."There is a very small community in the Boston area, particularly the Watertown area." She said most arrived in the U.S. through a refugee resettlement program granted by the U.S. Embassy to those deemed to be under threat in their home country, rather than as asylum seekers.

Putin on Boston bombings: World faces terrorists not referred to as such by West
4/25/13 http://rt.com/news/putin-boston-bombing-terrorists-381
“I'm appalled when our Western partners and Western media call terrorists who do bloody crimes in our country, ‘insurgents,’ almost never ‘terrorists'. They [the terrorists] were receiving help, informational, financial and political support. Sometimes directly and sometimes indirectly... If we truly join our efforts, we will not allow these strikes and suffer such losses”

Chechen President: West Seeks To Destroy Russia Through Caucasus
24 December 2009 Rustavi2
In in interview with the Daily Telegraph online newspaper, the Chechen president, Ramzan Kadyrov, 33-year-old former rebel turned Kremlin loyalist, said last year`s attack by Georgia, a US ally, on the pro-Russian rebel region of South Ossetia, was part of Western plan to seize the whole Caucasus region... 'the Caucasus is our backbone...The Russian government needs to work out a new military strategy to resist the United States and other Western powers stoking disorder in the north Caucasus to destroy Russia. the Chechen president said.

he official media arm of the Chechen mujahedeen, the Kavkaz Center published a blog post that suggested the investigation into Monday’s deadly attack is part of an anti-Chechnya “PR campaign”   The Kavkaz Center mocked the "lightning speed" at which the two known suspects in the attack on the Boston Marathon – Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, who was at large on Friday,  and his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who was killed in a firefight with law enforcement – were identified. “The news that the brothers attacked police officers, carjacked a man and did an array of other things, instead of going into hiding, looks strange at the very least,” the article said... also that the younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was “very far from your typical ‘Islamic terrorist.’ He named career and money as his main credo...he just logged onto his Russian social networking site a few hours ago.”..In a passionate interview with reporters the brothers’ uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, also vehemently denied that there was any connection to the Chechen insurgency....

"Uncle Ruslan" Tsarni served as a consultant contracted by USAID for projects to develop securities markets in Central Asia, where he trained corporate governance and corporate finance principals in state and private companies.”

But the claim, via Reuters, that "Some of who attended Tsarnaev Tamerlane, in Russia from January to July 2012" is not confirmed. Nor has the digest found credible evidence elsewhere that the Tsarnaev bros. were either willing or unwilling US accomplices in attempting to destabilize Russia - like US/ Soros-led 'color revolutions' to bring former Soviet nations under US domination.

Emails expose USAID NGO deals
12/9/11 http://rt.com/news/election-america-golos-support-393/
Russian news website Life News has published emails it claims show correspondence between the US State Dept. and the election watchdog Golos discussing payments for work done to discredit the results of Russia’s parliamentary vote. ­Life News says it came into possession of 60 megabytes of Golos' private online correspondence..letters sent and received by Golos Executive Chief Lilya Shibanova and her deputy Grigory Melkonyants. Judging by the documents published on the site, the Golos group which claimed to be independent is funded by the US State Department. In one of the letters Yulia Kostkina, financial analyst for the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) sends Melkonyants a list of remarks and guidelines considering Golos' activities. Among several similar paragraphs in that letter she writes:
“The list of lacking documents we are expecting from you: Policy and procedures of applying currency rates to Golos accountance and finance reporting; Procurement activities;
Procedures of property management considering procedures existing in USAID,” Image from Lifenews.ru (click to enlarge) Letter by Yulia Kostkina,financial analyst for USAID to Golos Deputy Chief.

This is not a government propaganda myth, it is objective political reality. The US is trying to affect Russian politics” " Mr. Sidyakin wrote... He specifically mentioned NGOs that monitor elections..the most prominent Golos monitoring Russian elections for 11 years, is financed by the U.S. National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Russian President Putin seemed to single out Golos in a speech last year, attacking “so-called grant recipients. Judas is not the most respected biblical figure among our people.”

Putin reserves particular scorn for Golos, an election monitoring organisation, that receives the bulk of its budget from USAID, helping bring tens of thousands into the streets with reports and videos on YouTube and social networks. linton remained defiant about US funding of civil society in Russia, saying the order to close the agency "doesn't mean we've changed our policy of supporting the kinds of actors USAID has supported.. the Obama administration will look at ways to advance our old policy objectives with new means". About 57 NGOs in Russia receive USAID funding. 60% of USAID's 2012 budget went to democracy promotion and human rights groups– a sharp increase from the Bush era. USAID first opened in Moscow in the wake of the Soviet Union collapse...The Russian parliament law passed this summer requires foreign-funded NGOs to register as "foreign agents" and undergo financial checks.
