    Due to the background of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the half-Chechen half-Avar brothers who bombed the Boston marathon, many Americans are suddenly very interested in the tortured history of the North Caucasus. I can’t credibly claim to be an expert on the multitudinous ethnic and linguistic groups that populate the area, so if you’re looking for in-depth analysis of Chechen politics, a data-driven account of the economics of Dagestan, or a blow-by-blow account of the past 20 years of the region’s history you should look somewhere else. If you’re still wondering “where in God’s name is Chechnya?” or “why are...

    RAMALLAH, West Bank (AP) — U.S. President Barack Obama is meeting Palestinian officials on the second day of his Mideast tour to emphasize the importance of reaching an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal, a message underscored Thursday when Palestinian militants in Gaza launched rockets into southern Israel. After a visit to Israel's national museum — where he inspected the Dead Sea Scrolls, which highlight the Jewish people's ancient connection to the land that is now Israel — Obama headed to the West Bank to tell the Palestinians that the creation of a Palestinian state remains a priority for his administration.

    Evyatar Borovsky, 31, was laid to rest Tuesday evening. He was murdered by a Palestinian Authority resident terrorist, who stabbed him to death while he waited for a ride at the Tapuach Junction. Several hundred people attended the funeral. His widow, Tzofia, was at the funeral with the couple’s five children. She called to the media, “Look, five orphans.” Evyatar’s father Baruch eulogized him. “I can’t believe that I’m here,” he said. “Surely tonight you’ll get up, you’ll laugh and say, ‘I fooled you.’”

    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."

    Those of us who pay attention, who are not doing the zombie shuffle through life, take polling results with more than a grain of salt. But, I found the results of a couple of post-Boston bombing, small-sample polls conducted by Fox News and the Washington Post to be interesting for what they say about our perception of the federal government. On Sunday, WorldNetDaily’s Drew Zahn wrote a report in which he stated: According to a pair of recent polls, for the first time since the 9/11 terrorist hijackings, Americans are more fearful their government will abuse constitutional liberties than fail...

    A statement from captured bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and corroborated by the terrorists’ carjack victim that New York City’s Times Square was the next target was met with surprising calm by Mayor Michael Bloomberg. “As horrific as the Boston Marathon bombing was or that a similar attack in Times Square might’ve been, the carnage entailed cannot match that wreaked on our citizens by sugar-laden soft drinks,” Bloomberg said. “The Boston bomb claimed the lives of three innocent victims and maimed dozens more. Sugary soft drinks kill and incapacitate far more on an annual basis.” Bloomberg insisted that “we should not be...

Here is what Bush did have to say: Q Mr. President, in your speeches now you rarely talk or mention Osama bin Laden. Why is that?

    The Russians warned the Obama regime of their concerns that the Tsarneav's could be religious extremists, but this regime wasn't interested because there is no longer such a thing as "Islamic extremism." There is no longer such a thing as "jihad." Had they only been white right wing militias. Obama was ready for them. The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America's first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias. Yeah, those...

    Terrorists must strike without warning and deliver maximum effectiveness in a short period of time to be effective. The Boston Terrorists were fairly successful, but thankfully, most of them are stupid and don't realize how to create far deadlier explosive devices with more readily available chemicals. However, if we note how the welfare coddled bastards from Chechnya were far less effective than say a former military man with basic explosive skills and a head for tactics could have been, we must also note the Keystone Cops appearance of Obama's FBI, they received multiple warnings from Russia, some from as recently...

Why didn't they have problems when moving into these countries, while ordinary citizens encounter enormous problems trying to enter these countries even on tourist visas. Just a week before the infamous acts of terrorism in Boston, I began to study the way in which a hypothetical terrorist could conceivably enter legally into the United States. I am not arguing that this happened in the case of Tsarnaev, but it is a fact that this route is...

In another conversation, the mother of now-dead bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev was recorded talking to someone in southern Russia who is under FBI investigation in an unrelated case, officials said.

    According to The Weekly Standard, authorities are still investigating how much Tamerlan Tsarnaev's wife knew about the Boston bombings. The report states that law enforcement officials now believe 24-year-old Katherine Russell Tsarnaeva called Tamerlan to let him know the FBI was looking for him after she saw his photos on the news. Though officials believe Tsarnaev was already aware, he and his younger brother went on the run a short time later, culminating in his death and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's arrest. Investigators were told of the alleged phone call by Dzhokhar in his interrogation before he was read his Miranda rights.

The Boston Regional Intelligence Center and the Commonwealth Fusion Center in Maynard, which is supposed to serve as clearinghouses for information about potential threats, was unaware that the FBI interviewed Tsarnaev as part of a three-month investigation after Russian agents alerted US officials to his increasing radicalization, officials said. “We were not privy to the tip,’’

Sales records show bombing suspect Tamerlan Tsarnaev purchased a reloadable mortar kit from Phantom Fireworks in Seabrook in early February. According to company president Bruce Zoldan, Tsarnaev purchased a “Lock and Load” kit containing 24 shells. The kit retails for $199.99. Tsarnaev took home two of the products, using a buy-one-get-one-free deal offered at the showroom in Seabrook, Zoldan said. The kits are designed to allow consumers...

Benjamin Lytal checks in on the master’s tale of anti-heroism and betrayal. On Friday, while CNN was making constant reference to the Tsarnaev brothers' attempt “to go out in a blaze of glory,” a micro-meme lit up social media: didn’t Leo Tolstoy have a novel about Chechnyan rebels, called Hadji Murad?

Boston's mayor is assuring everyone, the bombers acted alone, but the FBI has suddenly awakened or been embarrassed by the Obama/Jihad denial syndrome and is now taking its job seriously. The Globe is carrying on a tradition that began when the president and his media ignored the fact that Army...

    I can't help but think that many of the *idealist* (dopey) young people who voted for Obama must be getting the shock of their young lives. Many college students who voted for Obama were only children when 9/11 happened, it may not have been real to them but THIS is their 9/11, they will not forget it. The massive coverage that the Boston Marathon bombing has had has penetrated their little air-head experience of tweeting, social media and celebrities. Maybe they will be more grown up and sober people next time they vote.

    The mayor of Boston says it c appears the two suspects in Monday's Boston Marathon bombing acted alone. "All of the information that I have they acted alone," Thomas Menino said during an appearance on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" Sunday. However, he added that it was not clear if they would be able to question the suspects about the possibility of outside help. "The older brother's dead now. We have the second one at Beth Israel Hospital in very serious condition," he said "And we don't know if we'll ever be able to question the individual." So far...

    Obama declared the war on terrorism over and brought us a kinder, gentler approach: The US president has instead replaced it with a softer approach stressing "new partnerships" and multilateral diplomacy. "Our long-term security will not come from our ability to instill fear in other peoples but through our capacity to speak to their hopes," Mr Obama said in a message introducing a new national security strategy. In the 52-page document, drawn up after 16 months of deliberations, Mr Obama outlines a much broader set of priorities and methods than Mr Bush's tightly-focused determination to eradicate Islamism by any means...

On his radio show Friday, Beck urged White House officials to come clean. Failure to...
