Skip to comments.Boston bombs: the Canadian boxer and the terror recruiter who 'led Tsarnaev on path to jihad'

Two days after Plotnikov's death, Tsarnaev flew to Moscow on July 16 last year, and the next day to the US. "It seems that Tamerlan Tsarnaev came to Dagestan with the aim of joining the insurgents," said the source. "It didn't work out. First you need to contact an intermediary, then there is a period of 'quarantine' before they take someone, the insurgents check him out over several months. "After Nidal and Plotnikov were destroyed and he lost his contacts, Tsarnaev got frightened and fled."

The source is claiming that Tamerlan was there (2012) to join the jihad, and got out fast when his two key contacts were killed by Russian counter-terrorism forces!
Enchante, thanks for posting this!
Ping to more Boston bomber connections!
Another article here:
ReportedlyTamerlan’s name came up in 2010 when Russian security interviewed the Canadian jihadist Plotnikoff....
Would be nice if 0bama handled terrorists the way Russia does. They just raided a Mosque and rounded up 140 people too.. I wonder how many Mosques in America serve as weapons depots for Jihad? Where did the Tsarnaevs get their weapons?
Useful wiki article a posted by UncleMiltie on other thread here:
"Obama: Boston was not an intel failure" -yahoo headline
Fits in with another story I saw here that there was a two year monitoring of these two by one of our govt agencies
If he knew this guy online, it's hard to believe he spent 6 months in Dagestan and didn't make contact.
Why do wannabe American terrorists have to fly all the way to Dagestan/Yemen/Afghanistan for training when it is so much cheaper for them to go to terrorist camps right here in the US?
They don’t have to rough it, have pizza delivery and all the comforts of home.
The article is confusing to read, which may be because is translated?
Two days after the friends death he flew from Dagestan/Chechnya to Moscow and then the next day to the US. Moscow was simply a connecting flight, yes?
Why go to the local community terrorism college, when you can go to one of the ivy-league terrorism universities?
QUOTE: “We pay special attention to foreign or ethnic Russian converts,” said the source. “They are extremely ideological and psychologically vulnerable; they’re more easily persuaded to do anything, even suicide bombing.”
=>. what a novel idea!
Boston Bombing Ping!
Plotnikov’s father contacted Russian authorities to try and deter his son....he refused.
