Chechen refugee in NH questioned in bombing inquiry
https://www.nytimes.com/ 2013/ 05/ 17/ us/ boston-bombing-developments.html
FBI agents investigating the Boston Marathon bombing have repeatedly questioned Musa Khadzhimuratov, a Chechen refugee and former separatist fighter who says he had a passing social relationship with one of the two bombing suspects. They searched his family's small apartment here Tuesday, scouring his computers, subjecting him to a polygraph, and taking a DNA sample.
The hours of FBI questioning in more than a dozen meetings — described by Khadzhimuratov and his wife, Madina, in an interview — illustrate the bureau's intensive effort to identify possible accomplices and test its theory that the suspects, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were radicalized and trained on the Web and acted on their own.
But some members and supporters of the small Chechen community in the United States fear that the bureau's approach may be unduly influenced by Russian authorities who have an interest in using the Boston attack to smear their Chechen adversaries.

Russia Didn’t Share All Details on Boston Bombing Suspect, Report Says
4/9/14 http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/10/us/russia-failed-to-share-details-on-b...
WASHINGTON — The Russian government declined to provide the F.B.I. with information about one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects that would most likely have led to more extensive scrutiny of him at least two years before the attack, according to an *inspector general’s report. Russian officials told the F.B.I. in 2011 the suspect, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, “a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer" changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the US for the country’s [north Caucasus Dagestan] region to join unspecified underground groups.”
But after an initial investigation by the F.B.I., the Russians declined requests for additional information about Mr. Tsarnaev, according to the* intelligence report...
The report was produced by the inspector general of the * Intelligence Community, which has responsibility for 17 separate agencies and Inspectors General from the Department of Homeland Security, the Justice Department and the Central Intelligence Agency. It has not been made public, but members of Congress are scheduled to be briefed on it Thursday, and some of its findings are expected to be released before Tuesday, the first anniversary of the bombings. The Justice Department said it would seek the death penalty against Dzhokhar Tsarnaev...

Below, the US capitalism spells out its 'unrelenting efforts' to prevent revolution in order to maintain global domination. 'We the people of the world are its enemy. Its geopolitical strategy, based on the merger of hard & soft psy-power, depends on "full spectrum" information and communications: false flag operations, including the 'Boston Bombing', Ukraine 'democracy protests', 'African springs' Naval Yard and school 'shooting rampages', disappearing jetliners, global 'pandemics', HiNi, 'natural disasters', anything that can be manipulated to serve US interests in its failing world war.

Threats May Come in Many Forms, Which Is Why Our Efforts Are Unrelenting
It used to be conventional military threats were all the United States had to worry about. Today, we live in a much more complex world where security concerns are less straightforward and susceptibility is more global in nature. The Intelligence Community (IC) now has to concern itself with:

Terrorism refers to premeditated, politically motivated violence against state or civilian targets carried out by subnational groups or clandestine agents intended as protest or coercive acts.

Proliferation is the conveyance of chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear weapons and/or technology by countries that possess them to ones that do not.

Chemical Warfare
Chemical warfare defined as military use of chemicals, other than explosives, as weapons whose use results in incapacitation or death. It’s the impact of a chemical's effect, instead of its physical effects, that distinguishes chemical weapons from conventional weapons.

Biological Warfare
Biological warfare is the deliberate use of pathogens or toxins for military or terrorist purposes. Biological warfare agents can be more toxic than chemical warfare nerve agents on a weight-for-weight basis and can potentially provide broader coverage per pound of payload. Biological warfare attacks can also be masked as naturally occurring epidemics due to the presence of a biological warfare agent such as bacillus anthracis (anthrax) in the environment.

Information Infrastructure Attack
Political activism on the Internet has generated a wide range of activity, from using e-mail and web sites to organize, to web page defacements and denial-of-service attacks. These computer-based attacks are usually referred to as hacktivism, a marriage of hacking and political activism.

Narcotics Trafficking
Along with prevention and treatment, law enforcement is essential for reducing drug use. Illegal drug trafficking inflicts violence and corruption on our communities. Law enforcement is the first line of defense against such unacceptable activity. In addition to federal investigative and enforcement efforts, IC member agencies are committed to support of local and state law enforcement in their efforts to combat illegal drug trafficking.

One IC responsibility is to identify, understand, prioritize and counteract intelligence threats from foreign powers directed toward the United States. This is known as counterintelligence.
CI, more than simply catching spies (counterespionage), is concerned with understanding, and possibly neutralizing, all aspects of the foreign intelligence operations.

Congestion, Conflation, and Conflict at Azerbaijan’s Strategic Crossroads

Azerbaijan, a pivotally important, if fractured, Eurasian state, is the scene of classic great power competition in the 21st century.... The U.S. is desperately interested in getting the Nabucco pipeline project off the ground to counter Russia in the region... to isolate both Russia and Iran in this sense and discourage the EU from being dependent on these two massive natural gas suppliers and link Europe, specifically Austria, to the existing BTE (Baku-Tbilisi-Erzurum) gas pipeline, with a possibility of later hooking up an Iraqi (actually Kurdish) pipeline. Azerbaijan, sitting on the edge of the Caspian Sea, playing a sizable role in NATO’s NDN, is the total pivot state in today’s Eurasian realm

4/18/13 Baku: “ I am very happy to be back here in Azerbaijan for my second visit in three months, and my third visit in 18 months. And I think with an interagency team from the Justice Department, the U.S. Agency for International Development, and the State Department. And the fact that this broad team is coming to Azerbaijan relatively frequently is a sign of how important the relationship is with Azerbaijan for us, and also indicates how closely we’re watching developments here”: U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary Thomas Melia

US/Saudi covert operations in Chechnya: Ricin, diamonds, Stingers
4/30/13 http://english.pravda.ru/opinion/columnists/30-04-2013/124461-usa_chechn... by John Stanton
...According to the Russian research group Civil Research, "After signing the Khasavyurt Accord in Dagestan in 1996 ending the first Chechen War--and after the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria's de facto independence-"it became absolutely clear that Chechnya became a key element in the process of controlled destabilization of the Caucasian Region. Hence well-known intelligence managers of such destabilization processes moved to solve Chechen problems. The creators and instigators of shadow money and arms flows began to appear."
What's the Story?
BCCI "worked in the interests of American and Saudi elites and was a means of organization and financing of controlled crises in different regions from South America to Middle Asia...BCCI took an active part in arms smuggling, financing of terrorist groupings, and drug money laundering." [...]
