Sorry for the lack of posting, folks -- my ISP is having tech troubles. Right now, I'm at a fast food restaurant trying to type on an aged netbook. Not ideal blogging conditions.

For now, I urge you to look at this piece on the Boston bombing, written by an interesting trio of journalists. Why on earth are the feds going to such absurd lengths to harass and intimidate anyone who knew the bombers?
All of these individuals have something in common: If afforded constitutional protections and treated as witnesses instead of perpetrators, they could potentially help clear up questions about the violence of April 15. And they might also be able to help clarify the methods and extent of the FBI’s recruitment of immigrants and others for undercover work, and how that could relate to the Bureau’s prior relationship with the bombing suspects—a relationship the Bureau has variously hidden or downplayed.
As I've said before, the detail that always stuck with me was the fact that Tamerlan Tsarnaev was a boxer. Young, unsuccessful practitioners of the sweet science are often recruited into various unsavory activities by anyone who needs tough guys to do shady work.
Very interesting.
I believe that the story is unbelievably complicated because agencies other than just the FBI are involved.
Russian reports in Izvestia provide detail on Tsarnaev attending a seminar in Russian Georgia. That program was sponsered by "The Jamestown Foundation", a right-wing American nest of spooks, literally.
The Izvestia report is linked in a post I wrote last May:

And here is the "who's- who" of The Jamestown Foundation:

Jamestown has been accused of helping instigate the brief war between Russia and Georgia in '08. There was also a link between Tsarnaev and William Plotnikov as described by Professor Peter Dale Scott:

"The similar backgrounds of Plotnikov and Tsarnaev make it likely that they had indeed been in contact. Both were recent immigrants from the former Soviet Union. Both had successful boxing careers in North America, and both surprised their friends by converting to Islamist extremism.

Plotnikov was a member of the Caucasus Emirate, an al-Qaeda ally, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police had been searching for him since 2010. By 2011 the United States had joined the Russians in targeting this terrorist group as an al-Qaeda ally, and had offered $5 million for information leading to the capture of the group’s leader Dokka Umarov. (Moscow Times, May 27, 2011)

Plotnikov was killed in July 2012 in a shootout between militants and police in Dagestan. Tsarnaev left Dagestan for America two days after Plotnikov was killed."

Here's the link to Scott's full article:

The thing is, the group Plotnikov was associated with is exactly the type of group that The Jamestown Foundation was recruiting in Russian Georgia.
My working theory is that Tsarnaev was indeed trained by the CIA cut-out Jamestown, manipulated by the FBI, and then under FBI pressure he double-crossed everybody and carried out the Boston bombing.

Todashev must have known about all of this, and the story died with him.

Just thinkin'...
