Skip to comments.FBI closing in on 'Misha': Agents identify mysterious .. radicalizing the Boston bombers
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.

Ultimately the person radicalized is responsible for their actions.
lighter skin guy circled with red beard,
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.
Thanks for the tip ...
And the terrorists know this - they exploit our freedoms, our generosity, etc. They're nothing but a sucker-punching bunch of cowardly @$)%**$@^.
And they're raised that way by their families, religion, politicians, etc.
They can kiss my @ss.
I feel better now /rant
Thanks for the tip ...
Only the darkest evil intentionally kills children.
Yes maybe in suit jacket, but soooo many pictures, not sure where to start.
Also, didn’t Janet seal this case? Have to go find that thread. ‘nobody can access State records except the handpicked ones’ was the gist of it.
The Bank Secrecy Act needs to be mobilized here---since banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering and other financial crimes.
The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities, the special agent in charge for Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, explained.
L/E needs to examine city/state/ and all offical govt bank accounts
<><> Joint bank accounts might be used to facilitate the transfer of of govt funds. Boston govt monies may have paid for insiders personal and private expenses, credit cards, real estate subsidies and vehicle purchases. (NOTE: Credit cards are prime vehicles for money laundering).
<><> To cover their tracks, faked and forged govt invoices might have been created to falsely show that money deposited into state/city govt accounts were being used for legitimate purposes.
The scheme might be advanced by issuing phony statements of payments from financial sources that actually covered the transfer of funds for fraudulent uses.
<><> L/E should be directed to get ahold of: (1) copies of state/city govt checks, (2) wire transfers, (3) account statements, (4) invoices, (5) bills, (6) delivery tickets, (7) state/city govt correspondence including e-mail, contracts, loan agreements, and, (8) any other books or records.
L/E should also explore (a) monies paid to brokers, sub-brokers, (b) family members, (c) mortgage brokers, (d) financial managers, and, (e) real estate agents, brokers, and developers.
<><> L/E should scrutinize state/city govt bank accounts for suspicious activites: (A) large deposits, (B) funds transferred from one account into another, (C) frequent requests for withdrawals.
Closing in on him but he’s disappeared. Ok, whatever.
No’ thought of him but it was like from high up looking down on crowd and was close to white hat or the saudis
Do you remember the thread where DHS or DOJ sealed details of
the charges of this case?
Sweet, afterwards I’ll have some Victory gin.
It is a good catch, yet I wonder, might there be more success in charging them with obstruction of justice. I doubt any of them would be charged with conspiring.

Ultimately the person radicalized is responsible for their actions.
Precisely. In a world where Trust isn't just a name on a bank, we could be certain the federal authorities would identify Red Beard as "a person of interest" from whom is required "assistance with certain inquiries."
Their sole interest would be information and certainly to spy out this person's culpability, if any.
Instead, there are multiple credible sources citing this character and relating him to at least three story lines, including one questioning his existence.
The credibility of the FBI used to be a concern generally held by everyone, with good reason. It's clearly now hardly a secondary concern, by some, and a Modus operandi of this administration's culture.
Yes, indeed, the Nuremberg Defense should not apply, ever. Its being suggested, even as a subtext, is not a hopeful sign.
Soon talking to someone about individual liberty and introducing them to hate speech (the constitution) will be an effort to radicalize someone.
