Wouldn't be the first time the Russians had folks on the inside in the FBI. :whistle-62:
Todashev's father works in the Grozny Mayor's office:
He has also been an aide to the minister of property and land:
In 2012 Ramzan Kadyrov purged the former Mayor over land issues and installed Islam Kadyrov as his replacement, which is when Todashev must have got his present job.
In 2012 Abdul-Baki Todashev and his sons took part in a swimming marathon in memory of former President Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov, Ramzan's father:
It looks as though the Todashev family has quite a few connections to the Moscow-backed regime in Chechnya.
And there's another Armenian in the Boston bombing case:
I had no idea the count was at five in just a month! The FBI must have borrowed a page from the FSB's handbook on interrogation techniques. We'll probably end up with yet another federal-level scandal.
Can someone provide a link to the other four deaths? I don't remember any of the others. Thanks.
The "unnatural FBI deaths" story appears to be based on reports like the ones in this link and this one, which mention two. The FBI counter-terrorism unit concerned was involved in Dzokhar Tsarnaev's arrest. I don't have links to reports of the other deaths, but a search may reveal them.
The father of Ibragim Todashev - Abdul-Baki - has issued a statement expressing fears that his son may have been tortured before he was killed.
I think this is just happenstance in this case, with the two HRT bubbas getting killed. Stupid way to go, though, since you don't fastrope onto a target unless you can see it.
Probably - though why am I not surprised that RT has picked up the story now:
Thanks, David. I knew about the training deaths, but didn't realize they were being counted. I thought it was five people dying during FBI interrogation.
One is bad enough, I guess. Apart from anything else it seems awfully counter-productive, as Ibragim Todashev might have had a lot of useful information about the Boston bombings. One can only assume it was an accident, an unfortunate one.
Kadyrov: "Todashev was a good lad."
Attila the Hun's mother said the same thing.
Though Attila was no Ramzan.
Law enforcement officials say that Todashev was unarmed when he was killed. Weird stuff, but in the rush to get things done after the bombing, I think it was still mostly the result of sloppy protocol, e.g., questioning him for hours late at night in his own home, leaving him alone with one agent, perhaps other miscues.
That's no excuse to shoot and kill an unarmed guy UNLESS there's stuff they are not telling us.
I wonder if Steven Seagal and his Congressional delegation realize what they are getting themselves into over there in Chechnya?
I doubt it! They're too busy promoting themselves. This is funny:
Todashev was also a MMA competitor. I wouldn't say he was "unarmed".
Apparently he had a metal pole.
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is due to appear in court today, but outside the courthouse members of the Free Jahar movement call for his release:
