FBI closing in on 'Misha': Agents identify mysterious .. radicalizing the Boston bombers
Daily Mail, ^ | 27 April 2013 | James Nye and David Mccormack

Posted on 04/28/2013 8:03:41 AM PDT by george76

The FBI has revealed that they now know the identity of the American known as Misha who helped radicalize the Boston bombing suspects.

Family members of dead bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev have described Misha as the guiding influence in the elder bomber developing radicalized views.

Speculation as to who Misha is has varied wildly in the past week, with some suggesting he is the mastermind behind the marathon bombings while others believe he could be a Russian spy - sent to identify and keep tabs on young men like Tamerlan who are at risk of turning to militant Islam.

To date all that is known about him is that he is an Armenian man in his 30s with distinctive red beard and that he has disappeared - no longer living in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area.

However, family members have been telling reporters that in the years before the Boston marathon bombings, Tamerlan, 26, fell under the strong influence of a new friend, a Christian who converted to Islam and who steered the religiously apathetic young man towards adopting strong Islamic views.

There is a surprise...I guess he was just waiting for someone to come and give him his Miranda. Long gone through our pourous borders.

First the bombers are reported to be acting entirely on their own. Then there is a report that only one person(who no one can identify or find) radicalized them.

I don’t believe it.

The FBI is finally on track - I’ll bet they’re kicking themselves for time wasted ‘investigating’ the grandparents of FreeRepublic... I doubt they’ll be running down false trails in the future. Benghazi, Boston, and Mr. Red Beard have woken a sleeping giant.

The guy may be a lowlife, but unless he actually and materially aided these terrorists, there is virtually nothing the Feds can do. Prosecuting him for his speech and ideas, however vile, will give the government unacceptable power to silence anyone.

****with distinctive red beard***

The most fanatical moslems will dye their beards a henna red because Mohamed did the same to cover his grey.

If you see one with a henna red beard, be careful.

Management level Agents who took their oaths seriously would have outed all the corruption long ago.

The dept as with all others now is under Lib control. Any field agent will be disrupted, sent down rabbit holes or dismissed.

They need a villain to focus the low-fo’s attention on...now that Bin Laden is no longer operative.

Like the criminal “Goldstein” in Orwell’s 1984.

The mysterious “Misha” is now the target.

Without retracing my numerous tracks this morning, I thought I read somewhere else that they have already interviewed the person and say he/she had no connection to the bombings.

Everything now is all smoke and mirrors, get closer to the ground where the air is clearer and the reflections are too high to see.

Your link 404d on me... is it a real suspect?

And what’s the ‘unrelated’ charge the FBI is seeking him for?
Cable theft via a split line?

That’s funny because according to Katie Davies @ the Daily Mail:

“FBI agents today said they had tracked down Misha and believed he had no link to the terror attacks.”

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2315929/Boston-terror-suspects-uncle-married-CIA-officers-daughter-shared-home-agent.html

Katie Davies meet James Nye and David McCormack. Why don’t you three talk this over and get back to us.

I believe you are correct on this. Unless he’s in some position of getting US citizenship shortly or such....all they can do is watch him. It’s like having a full-time brain-washer working his way through the US, and always finding dozens of people to work on.

Obomba/Holder Undercut FBI (sent in Boston magistrate
and public defender to read Tsarnaev his Miranda Rights

BREITBART Details are emerging that when U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler read Dhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, she went to his hospital room accompanied by a federal public defender (meaning taxpayer-funded) and an assistant U.S. attorney from the Massachusetts prosecutor’s office.

The FBI was only partway through questioning Tsarnaev to get intelligence to determine who else was involved in the plot and how broad it was. The FBI told federal lawmakers in classified briefings this week they were “stunned” when this judicial officer and lawyers showed up to read him his rights.

Tsarnaev was providing what the FBI called valuable intelligence, when he was read his rights and then immediately stopped talking.

==================================================

WHO OBSTRUCTED US JUSTICE? One has to ask---how these officials knew exactly when to appear on the scene.....to protect Tsarnaev.

==================================================

AS FREEPER BLACKDOG INSIGHTFULLY POSTED Boston Mayor Menino, Gov Patrick, John Kerry, the federal government, and the State of Massachussetts should be indicted as co-conspirators since they financed the schooling, travel, feeding, housing, telecommunications, and healthcare of these two terrorist bombers. People on terrorism watch lists are indicted every week for sending $2,000 to family members in Islamic countries. How is this any different?

Should we bother trying to find him for the FBI? Seems like every perp gets immunity upon being caught.

FBI needs to expand the bounty system.

. . . he has disappeared - no longer living in the Cambridge, Massachusetts area.

Find out where his welfare checks are mailed. Can they track EBT cards numbers? If so . . .

Liz, you're right - it's a great idea. We won't 'win' with it in the traditional sense, but it'll call attention to an issue begging to see the light of day... Good catch.

Red beards on Muzzies usually indicates he’s a Sunni from the Middle East, Pakistan, Afghanistan or northern India. The beard is dyed with henna.

It's not illegal to "radicalize" someone now, is it?

Ultimately the person radicalized is responsible for their actions.

In the Marathon pics? Please say no because I really don’t want to scour all of them again.

I wish the FBI kept a presence here at FR so we could save time by avoiding bunny trails. They could just tell us what they need.
