Evidence on the Boston Marathon Bombing



April 21-22, 2013 — Special Sunday-Monday Edition. Tsarnaev brothers tied to anti-Russian operations in Boston, Finland, UK, and Israel

The pre-Boston Marathon activities of Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the two brothers accused of detonating two homemade pressure cooker bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon on April 15, have been linked to anti-Russian operations with their bases in Boston, Finland, the United Kingdom, and Israel. Most of these operations, designed to overthrow the government of Russian President Vladimir Putin and establish a Salafist Islamic Emirate in the Russian Caucasus, including Chechnya and Dagestan, where the Tsarnaev family has family and residential roots, respectively, involve the activities of the Chechen “government-in-exile.”

U.S. law enforcement has linked the elder Tsarnaev, allegedly shot and mortally wounded by police after engaging them in a shootout on April 19, to electronic communication with the Caucasus Emirate of Doku Umarov, a Chechen guerrilla leader who has been responsible for a number of deadly terrorist bombings inside Russia.

From its creation in 2007 to 2011, the U.S. State Department did not list the Caucasus Emirate as a foreign terrorist organization. In the meantime, other exiled Chechen groups that were, at the very least, ambivalent to the terrorist activities of the Caucasus Emirate, received aid and assistance from various anti-Russian non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and those within the U.S. State Department who handle political asylum requests. The Caucasus Emirate adheres to radical Salafist Islam and is believed to receive support from Saudi Arabia.

Specifically, U.S. law enforcement believes that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was communicating with the Kavkaz Center, a website based in Helsinki, Finland that has been criticized by Finnish Lutheran minister-turned-Russian Orthodox priest Juha Molari and Johan Backman of the Finnish-Caucasus Friendship Society of being a mouthpiece for Chechen extremists like Umarov and others.  Backman told the Russian news network RT that Finland may have promoted terrorism by allowing the Kavkaz Center to freely operate in the country. Backman said he “told the Finnish public the truth about the activities of Doku Umarov in Finland because in Finland, the information channel of terrorists, the so-called Kavkaz Center has been operating for several years without any kind of reaction from the government or officials of Finland . . . Of course this raises questions about whether Finnish authorities and the government of Finland are promoting terrorism against Russia.”

International hedge fund mogul George Soros has an extensive political operation in Finland which he uses to destabilize Russia by promoting Russian opposition and separatist groups, including the Chechens. Soros has also been a major donor to President Barack Obama and other Democrats but also an investor in interests involving the Bush family, including The Carlyle Group. One Soros-influenced group in Finland may be Pro-Karelia, a Finnish nationalist organization that seeks to convert the Russian autonomous Republic of Karelia, formerly a part of Finland, to part of the Finnish nation and restore the pre-World War II Finno-Russian border.

In fact, during the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, the Kavkaz Center was quick to pick up on a WMR article that reported that, if elected, GOP candidate John McCain and his foreign policy adviser, the noted neo-conservative Randy Scheunemann, with the urging of the anti-Putin hedge fund tycoon and CIA-instructed George Soros, promised to not only recognize the independence of Chechnya but other Caucasus states, including Dagestan, which Umarov wants to see break away from Russia as part of the Caucasus Emirate.

The Kavkaz Center reported: “According to the American pro-Russian “dissidents” in the person of a journalist Wayne Madsen in the American edition of Online Journal [which republished the WMR article], a group of American neoconservatives, led by McCain foreign policy adviser Randy Scheunemann and George Soros, lobbying Washington’s recognition of Chechnya, Dagestan and Ingushetia as independent states in response to recognition of Russia the independence of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.”

The Kavkaz Center was the first to publish manifestos by Umarov claiming responsibility for the terrorist bombings of the Nevsky Express train between Moscow and St.Petersburg and the Moscow Metro, and the attack on Moscow’s Domodedovo airport.

Suspiciously, the Kavkaz Center published a denial from the “Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate Province of Dagestan” on the Boston Marathon bombing, a denial that tried to lay blame for the attack on Moscow, a meme the neocon supporters of Chechnya in the United States can be expected to advance in the next weeks and months. The Kavkaz statement reads:

“After the events in Boston, the US, information has been distributed in the press saying that one of the Tsarnaev brothers spent 6 months in Dagestan in 2012. On this basis, there are speculative assumptions that he may have been associated with the Mujahideen of the Caucasus Emirate, in particular with the Mujahideen of Dagestan.

The Command of the Province of Dagestan indicates in this regard that the Caucasian Mujahideen are not fighting against the United States of America. We are at war with Russia, which is not only responsible for the occupation of the Caucasus, but also for heinous crimes against Muslims.

Also, remember that even in respect to the enemy state of Russia, which is fighting the Caucasus Emirate, there is an order by the Emir Dokku Umarov, which prohibits strikes on civilian targets.

In this regard, the Command of the Mujahideen of the Province of Dagestan urges the media, primarily the American, to halt speculations and promotion of Russian propaganda.

If the US government is really interested in establishing the true organizers of Boston bombings, and not in complicity with the Russian show, it should focus on the involvement of Russian security services in the events.

Friends of McCain, the late Boris Berezovsky, Albright, and Soros planning terrorist operations against Russia. Have they now turned their sites on America as pro-Saudi Salafists take control of the Chechen exile movement under the watchful eye of Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar (“Bandar Bush”)? The culprits of the Boston attack are the same as those who were involved in 9/11 — the neocons and their loyalists inside the U.S. government.

One Chechen “government-in-exile” leader not only received financial backing from exiled Russian-Israeli tycoon Boris Berezovsky, who was found hanged in his home in Ascot, outside London on March 23 of this year, but was a good friend of Berezovsky. He is

Akhmed Zakayev, the exiled Chechen Republic’s “Prime Minister” who received asylum in the United Kingdom in 2003 and who is accused by Russian authorities of thirteen counts of murder and hostage-taking. Zakayev immediately accused Putin’s government of assassinating Berezovsky. The post mortem concluded that Berezovsky was hanged but with no evidence of violence at the time of his death, leading investigators to conclude that suicide was the likely cause of death. Berezovsky’s personal bodyguard was

Avi Navama, a former Mossad agent.

In fact, the Tsarnaev family appears to have been granted asylum at the same time a number of stateless “professional refugees” from Chechnya, including another Chechen separatist regime foreign minister, Ilyas Akhmadov, were receiving asylum in the West. The Tsarnaev brothers and their father, Anzon Tsarnaev, received official asylum in the United States in Arlington, Virginia in 2002 after arriving in the United States on tourist visas from the Republic of Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia. Kyrgyzstan was held in high regard at the time because it had granted the Pentagon air base rights to the Manas airfield, near the capital of Bishkek, to fight the Taliban and “Al Qaeda” in Afghanistan.

In 2007, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev received a green card, permanent residency status in the United States. Dzhokhar was sworn in as a U.S. citizen on September 11, 2012. His older brother, Tamerlan, was initially refused a green card and, according to Anzon, returned to Russia to renew his passport. Eventually, Tamerlan did obtain some sort of permanent residency status in the United States but his application for U.S. citizenship was turned down because of “red flags” either because of a domestic abuse issue with his wife or concerns raised by U.S. and/or Russian security agencies about his political ties. Anzor’s claim that Tamerlan returned to Russia to renew his passport contradicts claims that Tamerlan, in addition to his brother, were holders of Kyrgyzstan passports when they first applied for green card status in the United States. There is, of course, the possibility that Tamerlan could only renew his Kyrgyzstan passport at the Kyrgyz embassy in Moscow.

As with Tamerlan Tsarnaev, the Department of Homeland Security and Justice Department initially had problems with “Foreign Minister” Akhmadov’s political asylum request, first made in 2002, the same year the Tsarnaev’s arrived in America. After his request for political sylum was turned down, Akhmadov found himself with a huge array of political supporters urging Homeland Security to reconsider. They included McCain, Senator Edward Kennedy, former Secretaries of State Madeleine Albright and Alexander Haig, former national security adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, former CIA director James Woolsey, and former Defense Secretary and deputy CIA chief Frank Carlucci. A sympathetic article in The Washington Post — a features article, not an op-ed piece — on Akhmadov’s plight was published on March 20, 2005. The article was written by Matthew Brzezinski, the nephew of Zbigniew Brzezinski who was championing Akhmadov’s cause.

House Judiciary Committee chairman James Sensenbrenner (R-WI) and chairman of Judiciary Committee’s immigration, border security and claims subcommittee John Hostettler (R-IN) urged Attorney General John Ashcroft to review Akhmadov’s initial asylum in the United States because of information they had that indicated Akhmadov was linked to terrorism.

McCain has called for a military commission trial of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and a declaration that he is an “enemy combatant” undeserving of constitutional protections. A military commission trial would permit the government to suppress evidence that could tie individuals like McCain and other neocons to support for Chechen separatist terrorism.

One of the officials of the Chechen Republic independence government in Grozny was Vice Prime Minister Shamil Basayev, held responsible for the deadly terrorist attack on a school in Beslan, North Oseetia in September 2004. Basayev was killed in an explosion in Ingushetia in July 2006. Akhmadov was said to have been close to Basayev. In 1999, Basayev and Amir Khattab, a Saudi Salafist who ran “Al Qaeda’s” training camps in Afghanistan, attacked Dagestan, where Chechen terrorists had network of sympathizers.

Akhmadov and his supporters won the day when in April 2004 a U.S. Immigration Judge in Boston issued an order that granted Akhmadov political asylum in the United States. The U.S. government quickly dropped its asylum objection in August 2004 and political asylum was granted to Akhmadov the same month.

While awaiting an asylum decision, Akhmadov lived for a year in the Boston home of former U.S. News and World Report Moscow correspondent Nicholas Daniloff, who was arrested by the KGB as a CIA spy in 1986. Akhmadov later moved to Vermont. Akhmadov’s cause was also taken up by two leading neo-conservatives, Max Kampelman, aka Max Kampelmacher, chief U.S. arms negotiator under Ronald Reagan and, more importantly, at the time of his death on January 25, 2013, co-chair of the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya and board member of the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA). Kampelman hired the high-priced New York law firm of Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver and Jacobson to represent Akhmadov. The “Shriver” in the law firm’s name is the late Sargent Shriver, who obviously prevailed on Senator Ted Kennedy, his brother-in-law, to support Akhmadov’s asylum cause.

In 2007, Umarov, himself, stated that the Chechen Republic leadership had been infiltrated by Zionist elements through their connections with Berezovsky.

It is noteworthy that Chechen Salafist guerrillas have fought against U.S. forces in Afghanistan and Iraq and have been associated with Salafist guerrillas fighting against the Bashar al Assad government in Syria. Secretary of State John Kerry has approved $130 million in military assistance for the Syrian rebels and Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is negotiating a $10 billion arms agreement with Saudi Arabia, Israel, and the United Arab Emirates. All three countries have covert connections with the Chechen Islamist guerrillas.

The CIA has long had a relationship with Chechnya’s independence movement. International “humanitarian” worker Fred Cuny, an ex-Marine and veteran of humanitarian operations in Biafra, Bosnia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Somalia, Croatia, Haiti, Mexico, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Turkey, Albania, Kurdistan, Armenia, Zaire, Bangladesh, and Iraq and the founder of the Intertect Relief and Reconstruction Corporation (IRRC) of Dallas, Texas and the International Crisis Group, both suspected CIA fronts, disappeared in Chechnya in 1995 while working with Chechen separatist guerrillas fighting against Russian troops. IRRC eventually became Interworks, which is headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin.

IRRC reportedly had Bosnia contracting connections with the Houston-based Halliburton Corporation and its then-subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root.

Cuny worked closely with operatives of Soros’s Open Society Institute in Sarajevo and Zagreb on Balkan matters. Provided with a $50 million budget by Soros, Cuny and the other Soros interlocutors, including noted neocon Morton Abramowitz; Aryeh Neier, the president of the Soros Foundation; Lionel Rosenblatt, President of the CIA-linked Refugees International; and the World Bank’s Mark Malloch Brown put the finishing touches on the final breakup of Yugoslavia.

Interest has been shown in the presence at the Boston Marathon of security personnel from the private security contractor Craft International, founded by the late Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. The personnel were seen wearing Craft’s signature garb and ball caps with the Craft skull logo, as well as carrying back packs and in one case, a remote control device that resembles a programmable detonator. On February 2, 2013, Kyle and his colleague were shot and killed by PTSD-afflicted veteran Eddie Ray Routh, who is being held in the Erath County, Texas jail on a $3 million bond. Craft International is headquartered in Dallas, which, like IRRC and its successor Interworks, is involved in “international humanitarian aid organization.”

Presence of van with foreign consular plates in New Bedford and Diplomatic Security Service in Watertown

Akhmadov has written at least two op-eds for The Boston Globe, one dated September 29, 2003 titled “Talk peace in Chechnya” and the other dated February 24, 2005 titled “Russia’s forgotten war.” NBC News anchorman Brian Williams noted the odd presence of a U.S. State Department Diplomatic Security agent in Watertown shortly after Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was apprehended while hiding in a boat parked in a yard in the Boston suburb. On April 20, FBI and Department of Homeland Security agents arrested two men believed to be connected to the Tsarnaev brothers at the Hidden Brook apartments in New Bedford, Massachusetts, near the campus of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, where Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended as a student. A minivan with foreign consular plates was present at the time of the arrests in New Bedford.

Earlier, two men said to be from Kazakhstan and the girlfriend of one of the men were arrested by the FBI at the same apartment complex. One of those arrested had a novelty license plate on his BMW that read: “Terrorista #1.” All those arrested were claimeed to have been UMass-Dartmouth friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. After the arrests of the two male Kazakhs and the female, the UK’s Daily Mail reported that two Russian-speaking men in their 20s, claiming to be reporters for The Boston Globe, entered the apartment of the Kazakhs through an unlocked patio door and claimed they were friends of the arrested residents. They said, “We are friends of theirs. They are talking, they are talking’ and closed the door. There was no firm denial from the Globe concerning the credentials of the two men who insisted that they were reporters for the newspaper. However, it is noteworthy that Akhmadov previously had a relationship with the paper as an op-ed writer.

There is another foreign government angle to the marathon bombing. Israel National Police Chief Yohanan Danino stated he was dispatching Israeli police officers and detectives to Boston to meet with FBI agents in the hours after the terrorist bombing. With an Arab connection to the bombings being ruled out, what connection does Israel have with the Chechen terrorists. WMR has described the close ties between Israel’s support community in the United States and elsewhere and exiled Chechen separatists associated with terrorism. Israeli police insisted the visit to Boston by the Israelis was planned before the April 15 bombing.

Ha’aretz reported that Ron Dermer, a foreign affairs adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and prospective Israeli ambassador to the United States, told a secret group of Jewish leaders in New York that the Boston marathon bombings would increase U.S. support for Israel. Netanyahu uttered the same comments on Fox News after the 9/11 attack saying the attack was “very good for Israel.”

It is now known that Russian law enforcement asked the FBI about Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s possible connections with terrorists before he made a trip to Russia in 2011. The FBI stated it had no information on Tsarnaev’s ties to radicals. The FBI is likely telling the truth about Tsarnaev’s ties to radicals. In fact, he had ties but to groups like the Chechen government-in-exile and allied Chechen guerrillas, which are partly based in Boston, and have been supported by the neocons like McCain and Woolsey, the CIA, and George Soros.

With those connections it is likely that there were shoot on sight orders issued for the Tsarnaev brothers by Langley to its friends in the Israeli, Boston, and Chicago police. One of the brothers is dead and the other is seriously wounded with reports that his throat injury may permanently disable his ability to talk. And an inability to “talk” is the next best thing other than death as far Langley is concerned.






April 26-28, 2013 — Speical Report. Blowback in Boston resulted from America’s creation of a “second Afghanistan” in the Caucasus

No lessons were learned by the CIA or the U.S. government from America’s fostering of a Jihadist mercenary force in Afghanistan to fight the USSR in the 1980s. That Saudi-financed and supported mercenary force led to the creation of “Al Qaeda” and the Taliban that directly led to the blowback of 9/11 when some Wahhabist and Salafist brainwashed mercenaries were convinced by their handlers to participate in a terrorist attack on the United States.

In a replay of history, two recruited Jihadist mercenaries from the North Caucasus region of Russia, Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, were either convinced by their handlers to become actual Islamist terrorists and attack the United States, in their case the Boston Marathon, or were intelligence assets used as dupes by their handlers to take the blame for the Boston Massacre of 2013.

WMR has carefully analyzed several leaked U.S. State Department cables from 2008 to 2010 and discovered that U.S. intelligence has fomented the Islamist terrorist movement in the Caucasus in an almost carbon copy of the CIA’s support for Afghan guerrillas during their war with the Soviet Union. And, like Afghanistan, the United States has reaped the blowback of active support for terrorism against the Russian Federation. Hardly found in the State Department cables are any references to Chechen and other North Caucasus Islamists groups as “terrorists.” In fact. State Department verbiage refers to the terrorists as “rebels,” “fighters,” “separatists,” and “ethnic nationalists.” During the 1980s, Afghan mujaheddin were referred to as “freedom fighters” by the Reagan and Bush I administrations. Anyone who experienced 13th century-style Taliban-ruled Afghanistan would have hardly called the Islamic Emirate that ruled that country with Saudi, Pakistani, and UAE backing a supporter of “freedom.”

WMR has learned from National Security Agency (NSA) sources that U.S. intelligence analysis reports on terrorism in the Caucasus must not call Chechen or other Islamists cited in NSA intercepts of Russian police, Federal Security Bureau, and Russian military communications “terrorists.” In 2003, NSA, under General Michael Hayden, ordered that all signals intelligence (SIGINT) analysis reports were no longer to refer to Chechen and other terrorists as “rebels” but “guerrillas.”

The change had a comic effect. One NSA analyst began spelling “guerrilla” as “gorilla.” NSA SIGINT reports referred to “gorillas” heading into the mountains in Chechnya and “gorilla movements.” After the obvious jokes about apes’ bowel movements, a supervisor informed the analyst that the target of NSA eavesdropping was the Caucasus and not the Congo.

The following details on U.S. intelligence destabilization of the Caucasus region were culled from unclassified, sensitive unclassified, Confidential, and Secret cables. Bracketed sentences […] contain the editor’s comments on noteworthy contents of the cables:

January 25, 2010 (Confidential): Southern Federal Region (SFR). Take advantage of exclusion of Republic of Adygea from the Southern Federal Region. Stir up tensions due to the separation of Circassian diaspora in Adygea from fellow ethnic Cherkess groups in Karachay-Cherkessk and Kabardino-Balkaria. [On March 21, 2010. the CIA-linked Jamestown Foundation, which hosted Tamerlan Tsarnaev at seminars in the Caucasus between January and July 2012, when he was visiting the region, held a seminar in Tbilisi, Georgia on the Circassian diaspora and “Hidden Nations” of the Caucasus. One of the local CIA/George Soros-supported NGOs stirring up Circassian nationalism is identified: Adygea Khasa, a Circassian protest group].

Take advantage of the exclusion of the Republic of Kalmykia from the SFR and the separation of ethnic minorities in Kalmykia from members of similar groups in Dagestan.

Russian National Security Council Secretary Vladimir Nazarov said there is documented evidence of connections between terrorists in the North Caucasus, groups in Afghanistan and Iraq, and British intelligence in London. He added that U.S. NGOs in the Caucasus “foster separatist and extremist sentiments in the region and that this was a “sore subject” for leaders in the region.

November 12, 2009 (Confidential): Use the Carnegie Center NGO in Moscow to stymie Russia’s political and economic goals in the North Caucasus.

September 16, 2009 (Confidential): Have Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Philip Gordon push the concept that the Kadyrov government in Chechnya has “neither control nor stability.” The NGO “Caucasian Knot” tells Gordon at U.S. embassy Moscow that “foreign fighters” were joining a jihad in the region and that there was a “Hobson’s Choice” between “terrorists” and “corrupt local government.”

July 29, 2009 (Confidential): U.S. embassy Oslo quotes acting head of Russian Section at Norwegian Foreign Ministry, Odd Skagestad, as saying Akhmed Zakayev [the friend of exiled Russo-Israeli tycoon Boris Berezovsky] is the “legitimate representative of not just the Chechen exile community, but of Chechens in Chechnya,” even though Zakayev “is on various INTERPOL lists” for suspected terrorist links. Skagestad stated the Norwegian PST (FBI) ignored INTERPOL arrest warrants and permitted Zakayev to visit Norway from London.

Alexander Litvinenko, the ex-Russian FSB officer who defected to anti-Russian groups abroad is named as a friend of the Norwegian head of the “Chechnya Peace Forum,” Ivar Amundsen, who is described by U.S. embassy Oslo as very “tight lipped” about his activities.

Oran, 22.02.2009


From: A citizen Address: Oran Subject: Warning of a danger from a woman from Chechnya

Mr. Ambassador of the American Embassy in Algiers, Sir, pay attention to a Chechen woman married to a terrorist man whose name is Houari, aged 38 years, who was born in 1970 (and) resides at 3 Avenue Hammou Mokhtar Saint-Eugene, Oran on the fourth floor. This man was in prison at Guantanamo but is now free. This man is in contact via telephone and Internet in his home with his wife from the country of Chechnya. This woman is filling her Algerian husband’s brain with ideas of revenge and terrorism directed against the American embassy, in an effort to make him understand that the Americans caused him to lose those years of his life in prison and that the Americans are non-believers, and they must not remain on Algerian territory, and the people of Oran should fight the American Embassy.

So, Mr. Ambassador, the phone and internet should be cut off at the house so that there will be no more contact between Chechens and Algerians – the man and the woman. Also, you should separate the woman from the man to allow the country of Algeria to live in peace. This woman is getting her husband at his weak point, a little girl who was born in Chechnya. Using this point of weakness the woman wants to come to Oran, Algeria, and she is going to change the morale of her husband and she is making him angry at the American Embassy and he is going to be against you, and he will fight you Americans with help. His friends here will be impressed and this man is impressed by the Chechen woman. I am trying to warn in order to prevent terrorism from returning to Algeria because of a woman from Chechnya.

Accept my request, sir, and my salutations.

May 2-4, 2013 — Kazakhstan aiding U.S Boston investigation


Translated from Russian by WMR’s Moscow Correspondent

Kazakhstan is Helping US Investigation of Boston Bombing

Kazakhstan and two friends of the Boston bomber are cooperating with the US in its investigation of the terrorist act, which claimed the lives of three people.

The Ministry of International Affairs of Kazakhstan released a statement today about its cooperation with American investigators who are investigating the terrorist act. which took place on April 15 in Boston. The agency emphasized that Tsarnaev’s university friends, two of whom are citizens of Kazakhstan, are not accused of preparing the explosions. They have been accused of destroying evidence.

According to the press service of the Kazakh Ministry of International Affairs: “ At the moment the necessary consular services are being provided for our citizens. Their guilt has not been proven yet as the investigation is still ongoing. Dias Kadyrbaev and Azamat Tazhayakov are cooperating with law enforcement agencies and are assisting them.”

A court hearing for Tsarnaev’s friends occurred yesterday. Criminal charges were officially filed for the three men. The charges include hindering an investigation by destroying evidence.

The Americans [investigators] believe that they hid Tsarnaev’s laptop computer and took a black backpack, which contained fragments of Chinese fireworks, from the dormitory. Tsarnaev allegedly used the powder from the fireworks to make the bombs. The backpack was later thrown into the trash. These students are claiming that, approximately one month before the event, Tsarnaev bragged about knowing how to make a bomb.

The terrorist attack occurred April 15, at the Boston marathon. Three people died and more than 260 were injured. The men suspected of carrying out the attacks are believed to be Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.




August 30-September 1, 2013 — Partner of Boston bombers’ “Uncle Ruslan” right hand man to 3 CIA directors

The murky world of the CIA’s past and current support for radical Islamist groups on three continents has emerged in newly-released documents from the CIA that show that Graham Fuller, the agency’s one-time top interlocutor with the Saudis, Afghan mujaheddin, and Muslim Brotherhood, was a right-hand man to three CIA directors.

Fuller, a business partner of Ruslan Tsarni (Tsarnaev), the uncle of the accused Boston Marathon bombers, served as a close adviser to CIA directors William Casey, William Webster, and Robert Gates, according to recently declassified internal CIA memoranda. Since retiring from the CIA, Fuller has been engaged in supporting the Chechen Islamist guerrilla groups fighting Russia as well as the Republic of Georgia, which has become a base for anti-Russian and anti-Syrian military activities, which includes, the transport of chemical weapons to Syrian rebels from the Pentagon-operated Richard G. Lugar Center for Public Health Research in Tbilisi, which, although a biological weapons research laboratory, also warehouses chemical agents, according to U.S. intelligence sources familiar with the facility. The Tbilisi facility was the major source of chemical agents used by Syrian rebels to attack civilians outside of Damascus in a “false flag” terrorist operation coordinated by the CIA and Mossad.

Throughout the 1980s, Fuller was front and center at many of the acts of violence in the Middle East and South Asia, from Lebanon and Syria to Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Yemen. One CIA memo describes how Fuller was also heavily involved in the early part of the CIA’s stirring political activities in the Balkans during the collapse of Communism in eastern Europe. A May 22, 1985, memo from George Kolt, the CIA’s National Intelligence Officer for Europe, invited Fuller to a June 11, 1985, dinner at CIA Headquarters at which the former U.S. ambassador to Bulgaria, Robert Barry, discussed at the Confidential level “The Strategic Importance of the Balkans for the United States.”

A National Security Planning Group (NPSG) meeting memo on Lebanon, dated February 24, 1984, cites a “think piece” from Fuller titled “How We Confront Syria from Here on Out.”  The revelation is timely as President Obama makes plans to launch a U.S. military strike on an old adversary of Fuller and the CIA. Fuller was the National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia. On September 23, 1984, CIA director Casey had only one scheduled meeting and it was with Fuller.

Fuller’s think piece, dated February 1984 and classified Secret, states that Lebanon “has not been good turf for us to take on the Syrians,” adding “our overall strategy against Syria must involve far broader action with the Arab world.” Fuller saw Syria as “the leader of a radical faction including Libya, PDRY and Iran, in opposition to moderate Arab states associated with the US.” Of these nations, Libya’s leader Muammar Qaddafi was overthrown and assassinated by U.S.-led radical Islamist rebels and the PDRY was absorbed into Yemen. Fuller’s brief included the PDRY. Only Syria and Iran remain as states opposed to U.S. policies in the region.

In his “think piece” Fuller advocated the U.S. confronting Syria in Jordan and the Persian Gulf. The CIA memos also describe how President Ronald Reagan’s Middle east envoy, Donald Rumsfeld, helped the CIA carry out its “strategy of tension” in the region by arming Saddam Hussein’s Iraq in its war with Iran. A formerly Top Secret CIA memo, also dated February 24, 1984, describes how Saudi Crown Prince Abdallah, the present Saudi King, “pressed Syria to reduce its support for Iran,” although it describes Abdallah’s relationship  with Hafez al-Assad, the father of current Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, as “close” and “personal.”

Fuller’s think piece also describes how “Christian Phalange forces (LF) or even among right wing Christian officers in the Lebanese Army . . . could be encouraged to carry out terrorist attacks against the Syrian presence in Lebanon.” This admission provides proof that the CIA relied on terrorism as a weapon, which in the case of Lebanon, was used against Syrian forces using Christian proxies. But Fuller did not merely limit the CIA’s use of Christian proxies to attack Syrian forces in Lebanon but also anti-Syrian elements of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which, he wrote, “will attack Syrian interests on the basis of their own interests.” Fuller also saw using Jordanian assets in Syria to attack the Assad government. Fuller also contemplated the use of Turkish, Iraqi, and Israeli forces against Syria.

Fuller helped prepare two reports for Casey described in a Secret March 29, 1984 memo:

Tab I: “talking points prepared for you by David Low on Iraqi use of chemcial [sic] weapons.”

Tab J: “two memos recently prepared by DDI/NESA on the Iraqi chemical weapons program.”

Other proxies used by the CIA included pro-Israeli Druze. Fuller write “Israel enjoys the most ready access to them.” Fuller also contemplated using pro-Iraqi Ba’ath Party elements centered in Tripoli, Lebanon and the pro-Iranian Sunni Islamic Unification Group, also based in Tripoli, to attack Syrian interests. Inside Syria, Fuller advocated using the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood, Kurds, anti-Baath Party Alawites, to strike Assad’s government. Fuller also advocated U.S. reliance on Muslim Brotherhood forces in Afghanistan in the CIA war against the Soviets.

Fuller was also quoted in the Report of the President’s Special Review Board, composed of former Senator John Tower, former National Security Adviser Brent Scowcroft, and former Senator Edmund Muskie (the “Tower Commission”) that investigated the Iran-contra scandal. Fuller stated that one of the CIA’s priorities was to “remove Qadhafi” as a way to pressure Iran and “show U.S. resolve.” Fuller also anticipated Ayatollah Khomeini’s declining health as a chance for the CIA to take advantage of Iranian instability by influencing the “growth of private armies and jockeying for political advantage by competing groups.”

A March 29, 1984, formerly Secret memo, describes the NPSG meeting on the Iran-Iraq war and the kidnapping of CIA Beirut station chief William Buckley by terrorists in Lebanon. Fuller submitted a brief on the Iran-Iraq war. Fuller “argues the need for aiding Iraq sooner rather than later. The program that he suggests include support to the Iraqi air force and USG [U.S. Government] support for a pipeline which will relieve Iraq’s economic descent.”

The Tower report also indicates that Fuller was coordinating his own activities with Admiral John Poindexter, the National Security Adviser, and an “independent NSC consultant,” Dennis Ross, a pro-Israeli policy specialist, who would later serve as a Middle East special adviser to Presidents Bush 41, Clinton, and Obama.

On February 21, 1986, Fuller attended a private luncheon in the CIA director’s private dining room hosted by Robert Gates, the CIA deputy director, for General Jeannou Lacaze, the African Affairs adviser to the French Defense Minister; Lt. Col. Christian Luc Vaganay, executive assistant to General Lacaze, and Marc Weydman, the Direction Générale de la Sécurité Extérieure (DGSE) representative in Washington. The previous July, the DGSE sank the Greenpeace ship Rainbow Warrior in Auckland harbor in New Zealand, killing a photographer,  in a state-sponsored terrorist operation.

It is clear that Fuller, who has been largely absent from corporate media reports on the Boston Marathon bombing, has long been an interlocutor, along with CIA director John O. Brennan, with radical Islamist guerrilla forces and terrorists who are used to carry out proxy terrorist attacks on behalf of the CIA. In the 1980s, those attacks were directed against Syria and they continue to this day.
