Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Recruitment Profile Fits CIA MO Not the FBI's, says Ex-FBI Agent Sibel Edmonds
By Sibel Edmonds / boilingfrogspost.com

CIA MO Not the FBI, Contradictions from Dagestan, Recent Shooting Incident in Dagestan, Georgia-NATO-Russia & More

I have been repeatedly emphasizing the importance of going outside the US mainstream and quasi-alternative media outlets for information and new developments on the Boston Terror event. Similarly, I have been urging people to place the bigger part of their attention on developments in the Caucasus during this period following the event. Let me exemplify what I mean by this with the following developments you won’t be seeing printed or talked-about in the US MSM and their little quasi-alternative siblings.

In my latest interview for Boiling Frogs Post EyeOpener Report (See here) I emphasized the role of the CIA rather than the FBI in evaluating the Boston Terror incident. Why? Because: 1-the suspects 100% fit the CIA recruitment profile; 2-The region being central to the CIA covert operations since the 1990s; 3- The suspect’s travel to the region (not the FBI MO but the CIA); 4- The classic occurrence of the FBI closing the case per CIA request and pressure … and much more. Please watch my comprehensive interview with James Corbett here for more details on this:

Now, take a look at what just popped up a few hours ago in relation to the above:

Tamerlan Tsarnaev Attended CIA-sponsored Workshop

Tamerlan Tsarnaev attended a workshop sponsored by the CIA-linked Jamestown Foundation, Izvestia reports today. The Russian newspaper cites documents produced by the Counterintelligence Department Ministry of Internal Affairs of Georgia confirming that the NGO “Fund of Caucasus” held workshops in the summer of 2012 and Tsarnaev attended.

The Caucasus Fund was established in November, 2008, following the Geoergian-Ossetian conflict. The main purpose of the organization, according to Izvestia, is to “to recruit young people and intellectuals of the North Caucasus to enhance instability and extremism in the southern regions of Russia.”

Now, let’s go to other recent developments either blacked-out or downplayed by US media:

Dagestan Officials Deny any Contacts Between Boston Terror Suspects and Islamic Radicals

Dagestan Officials: Tsarnaev did not contact Islamic radicals while visiting Dagestan in 2012 – official

Moscow/Makhachkala, April 24, Interfax – Dagestani Interior Minister Abdurashid Magomedov has denied allegations that Tamerlan Tsarnaev, one of the two men suspected of committing bomb attacks at the Boston Marathon, started practicing radical Islam during his stay in Dagestan in 2012.

“According to our information, Tamerlan Tsarnaev did come to Dagestan in 2012 in order to have his Russian passport restored. However, his father Anzor Tsarnaev says his son was in the republic for only three or four days and left before his passport was ready,” Magomedov said.”As far as the Dagestani Interior Ministry is aware, Tamerlan Tsarnayev did not have any contacts with the North Caucasus criminal underworld,” Magomedov said.

As emphasized during my recent interview we must pay special attention to the conflicts and specific incidents like this within the region:

Two militants shot dead in Russia’s Dagestan

Security officers shot dead two suspected militants in Russia’s volatile North Caucasus republic of Dagestan, the epicenter of an Islamist insurgency, the National Anti-Terrorist Committee said on Wednesday.Moscow is struggling to quell the persistent attacks by Islamist militants more than a decade after it fought two separatist wars in the adjacent republic of Chechnya.

Security officers surrounded a house in the village of Sogratl, some 100 km (60 miles) southwest of the regional capital Makhachkala, where the two suspected insurgents were hiding, the statement said.Two unidentified women with a baby left the house after law enforcement officers demanded that the militants surrender. The two rebels then opened fire and were shot dead, the statement said.

Please make sure you keep an eye on the coming developments in Russia-Georgia relations and tension as well. Here are a few excerpts from today’s news on that front:

Georgia Wants to Mend Ties with Russia, BUT Not at the Expense of “Territory”

“Our policy is absolutely clear. We want to improve relations with Russia, that is very important for Georgia, but we will not give up the basic postulates of our country, which are the territorial integrity, European integration, NATO membership,” Panjikidze said.

We recall that the head of the foreign affairs committee at Russia’s State Duma (lower house of parliament), Alexei Pushkov, told journalists on Monday that the Russian delegation to PACE intended to raise a question before Georgian Prime Minister Bidzina Ivanishvili, who was to deliver a speech at PACE on Tuesday, over the Georgian government’s change of foreign policy toward Russia.

Pushkov said the questions addressed would be related to what extent Ivanishvili intends to change the Georgian foreign policy, in particular, that toward Russia, as all official statements of the Georgian government have so far been in line with the foreign policy course conducted by President Mikheil Saakashvili.

And of course the following (and ongoing) case involving Georgia-US-NATO:

Georgia Offers NATO Baku-Tbilisi-Kars Railway for Afghan War Transit

Tbilisi: Georgia’s Foreign Minister, Maia Panjikidze, participated in the NATO and ISAF partner nations’ foreign ministerial meeting on Tuesday and will meet U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday in Brussels.

Panjikidze said that Georgia, which now has over 1,600 troops in Afghanistan, making the country highest per capita troop contributor to ISAF, reiterated its commitment to the NATO-led mission in Afghanistan and reaffirmed its intention to continue its contribution after 2014, when the NATO combat mission is due to end.

She said that Georgia was also offering NATO to use its territory as a route for reverse transit of ISAF forces and cargoes from Afghanistan, in particular by using a railway link, which is due to be completed later this year and which will link Azerbaijan and Turkey via Georgia.

On Wednesday Panjikidze is expected to meet U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry in Brussels to discuss “important details” of bilateral relations, the Georgian Foreign Ministry said.

And finally, if you haven’t watched our latest EyeOpener Video Report with James Corbett, please do so, and please help disseminate it; this is one way to counter the one-dimensional US media narrative:



Sibel Edmonds is the founder and president of the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition (NSWBC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to aiding national security whistleblowers. She appears frequently on national radio and TV as a commentator on matters related to whistleblowers, national security, and excessive secrecy & classification. She has been featured on CBS 60 Minutes, CNN, MSNBC, and NPR, and in the New York Times, Washington Post, Vanity Fair, Glamour, and others.

Ms. Edmonds worked as a language specialist for the FBI's Washington Field Office. During her work with the bureau, she discovered and reported serious acts of security breaches, cover-ups, and intentional blocking of intelligence that had national security implications. After she reported these acts to FBI management, she was retaliated against and ultimately fired in March 2002. Since that time, court proceedings on her issues have been blocked by the assertion of 'State Secrets Privilege' by Attorney General Ashcroft, and the Congress of the United States has been gagged and prevented from any discussion of her case through retroactive re-classification issued by the Department of Justice.

She is fluent in Turkish, Farsi and Azerbaijani.
