Anzor Tsarnaev told the Los Angeles Times in a telephone interview he did not believe Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev had anything to do with the fatal attack in their adopted home town and had been singled out because of their Muslim faith.
“It is a provocation of the special services who went after them because my sons are Muslims and don’t have anyone in America to protect them,” said the elder Tsarnaev, who spoke to the Times from the Dagestan region. He added his boys had no training in handling firearms or explosives.
The family moved to the United States from Chechnya, which has been the scene of sometimes-violent clashes between government authorities and Muslim separatists. It was not clear why the boys’ father returned to Russia.
Officials in Chechnya told the Times the family left Chechnya years ago and the situation in the republic had cooled off significantly since then.
“If these kids are really Chechens it is very unlikely that they could travel all the way around the world to explode something in the United States. It sounds like science fiction to me,” said Lyoma Gudayev, deputy information minister for Chechnya. “The west keeps thinking that we are a troubled republic but the war is long over for us down here.

- Firefighter conduct search and rescue of an apartment destroyed by an explosion at a fertilizer plant in West, Texas
By Alexandra Berzon
As details emerge about the Texas fertilizer plant that was the site of Wednesday’s fatal explosion and fire, a few tidbits can be gleaned from a 2007 lawsuit that the plant’s owners filed against agribusiness giant Monsanto Co. MON -1.62%
The suit, filed as a potential class action in U.S. District Court for the western district of Texas, claimed that Monsanto had artificially inflated prices for its herbicide Roundup through anti-competitive actions. The suit did not relate to storing fertilizer, believed to be at the root of Wednesday’s blast.
The suit was filed by Texas Grain Storage Inc. The company now calls itself West Fertilizer Co.
In the suit, the company said that it was started in 1957 as a grain-storage business by the Plasek family in the town of West, Texas. It later built a small fertilizer-blend plant and started selling fertilizer to area farmers.
Zak Covar, executive director of the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality, told a news conference Wednesday that the fertilizer storage and blending facility had been there since 1962.
In 1970 it started selling other agricultural products, including some from Monsanto, and by 1997 it had struck a deal with Monsanto to directly purchase Roundup each year.
A court filing in 2008 indicated that Texas Grain Storage recently had been sold. Emil Plasek is listed as a former owner.
Texas Grain Storage said it monitored the Roundup, stored in a stainless steel tank, through a telephone connected to the tank, the company said.
Many documents in the case are sealed, and the public documents don’t reveal the names of the plant’s then-current owners. Texas corporation records list the president of the company as Donald R. Adair, and show a business operating as Adair Grain Inc. at the same address.
Texas Grain Storage was represented by roughly 30 lawyers at 12 firms, according to court records. One lawyer who represented Texas Grain said the suit stalled in 2010 after a magistrate judge denied a request to certify the case as a class action. The lawyer said Texas Grain appealed the ruling, and that a district judge has yet to rule on the appeal. The last public filing in the case was in 2010.
Monsanto responded to Texas Grain’s complaint by saying the company didn’t have standing to bring the case and was barred by the statute of limitations. Thursday, a Monsanto spokesman said, “The long dormant lawsuit filed by Texas Grain had nothing to do with fertilizer or the operation of the West, Texas plant.”

Today Cousin Barry has a walking, unscheduled meeting with the Saudis? So Janet…. If you’ve nothing to hid, why dodge the question? Was the perp just flown out of the USA to protection? (remember Afghan “Airlift of Evil” or Bush letting all the Carlyle Group Bin Ladens run home under a national No Fly zone? Or remember how Bin Laden “got away” in Tora Bora?) Does this clear the way for a Patsy? (Forget relative Neo Con Commentary….) Just like the OKC Bombings, where Iraqi’s were used as co conspirators – via Op. Iraqi paperclip – and McVeigh was framed as a lone nut militia bomber. This script has been used effectively before. Thus – we post this.
A visibly irritated Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to answer a Republican congressman’s questions about the possible deportation of the Saudi national questioned as a witness in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Napolitano called South Carolina Rep. Jeff Duncan’s question “so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer.”
“We have someone who’s being deported due to national security concerns,” Duncan had said during a Capitol Hill hearing Thursday. “We’ve got this guy who was there, we know he was there…and yet we’re going to deport him? We’re going to remove him from the scene?”
“If I might, I am unaware of anyone who is being deported for national security concerns at all related to Boston,” Napolitano said.
“He is being deported,” Duncan said.
Napolitano said as she understood it, the man was not technically a person of interest or a suspect, and “this is is an example of why it is so important to let law enforcement do its job.”
“I want them to do their job,” Duncan said. “Wouldn’t you agree with me that it’s negligent for us as an American administration to deport someone who was reportedly at the scene of the bombing and we’re going to deport him, not to be able to question him anymore?”
“I am not going to answer that question it is so full of misstatements and misapprehension that it’s just not worthy of an answer…there’s been so much reported on this that’s been wrong I can’t even begin to tell you, congressman,” Napolitano replied. “We will provide you with accurate information as it becomes available.”

Anthony Gucciardi spoke with Boston Marathon eyewitness Alastair Stevenson who confirmed the bomb drill and revealed what he saw http://www.storyleak.com/boston-marat…
we saw this LIVE on CNN – copy before scrub – Bomb dogs and bomb squad, eyewitnesses may have only seen standard “security”? – OK.
Marathon Bombing Inside Job? UM Coach: Bomb Sniffing Dogs Were at Start, Finish Lines for “Drill” (CNN News Conf confirms prior Knowledge by BPD)
YES there was a drill to have a controlled explosion today by police:
Bomb squad was running “controlled explosion” on the same day
As the Boston Globe tweeted today, “Officials: There will be a controlled explosion opposite the library within one minute as part of bomb squad activities.”
6pm est: CNN NEWS CONF: PRIOR KNOWLEDGE WAS CONFIRMED! (will add video when its in)
University of Mobile’s Cross Country Coach, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when a series of explosions went off, said he thought it was odd there were bomb sniffing dogs at the start and finish lines.
“They kept making announcements on the loud speaker that it was just a drill and there was nothing to worry about,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15. “It seemed like there was some sort of threat, but they kept telling us it was just a drill.”
Stevenson had just finished the marathon. His wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
“There was just smoke, another explosion went off,” Stevenson said. “We all started running. There were people crying.”
Stevenson said there was no question in his mind that this was an intentional act.
Local 15 News is talking with more locals who were taking part in the run.
“They kept making announcements to the participants do not worry, it’s just a training exercise,” Coach Ali Stevenson told Local 15.
Stevenson said he saw law enforcement spotters on the roofs at the start of the race. He’s been in plenty of marathons in Chicago, D.C., Chicago, London and other major metropolitan areas but has never seen that level of security before.
“Evidently, I don’t believe they were just having a training exercise,” Stevenson said. “I think they must have had some sort of threat or suspicion called in.”
CNN reports a state government official said there were no credible threats before the race.
Stevenson had just finished the marathon before the explosions. Stevenson said his wife had been sitting in one of the seating sections where an explosion went off, but thankfully she left her seat and was walking to meet up with him.
“We are just so thankful right now,” Stevenson said.
Two of the men in the photos appear to be George Kennedy — from Dallas and The Naked Gun — and Malcolm McDowell — from A Clockwork Orange and numerous television shows. Presumably, the photos were attachments in Powell’s AOL email account that was hacked by Guccifer, according to Russia Today.
Bohemian Grove is a “two-week, three-weekend encampment of some of the most powerful men in the world,” according to the Sonoma County Free Press’ (SCFP) website. The grove is split into “camps” and according to SCFP, Powell is a member of most exclusive one — Mandalay Camp. In one photo, Powell and the other men are sitting in chairs with Mandalay printed on the back.
Mary Moore, of SCFP, said today, ” … a lot of actors do go up there mostly as guests but some do belong. They’re considered ‘men of use’ as are the musicians and others in show biz.”
On May 21, 2012, Andrew Knight, a News Corporation director, emailed Powell about former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, “You will see in the attachment Tony’s response to George. Might you be able gently/firmly to point out to Tony that you rank the Bohemia Middle Weekend in your diary before allowing any other duties to get in the way?! Lack of exposure suggests that Tony has not yet got his priorities straight. I am going to suggest the same to Henry.”
We were not able to locate a copy of the attachment, “Tony_Blair_to_George_Schultz.pdf”. George Schultz has held several high-ranking positions in the U.S. government that included director of the Office of Management and Budget, secretary of the treasury, and secretary of state.
In July 1991, People magazine’s San Francisco bureau chief Dirk Mathison infiltrated the group, according to an article written by the journalism organization, Fairness & Accuracy In Reporting (FAIR):
He witnessed a speech — “Smart Weapons” — by former Navy Secretary John Lehman, who stated that the Pentagon estimates that 200,000 Iraqis were killed by the U.S. and its allies during the Gulf War. Other featured speakers included Defense Secretary Richard Cheney on “Major Defense Problems of the 21st Century”, former Health, Education and Welfare Secretary Joseph Califano on “America’s Health Revolution — Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Pays“, and former Attorney General Elliott Richardson on “Defining the New World Order”.
According to FAIR, some of the media elite that attended the grove included the president of CNN, the president of the Associated Press, and Jack Howard and Charles Scripps. There were two executives from Time-Warner in attendance as well. They recognized Mathison and kicked him out. They owned People magazine and would not publish his story.
In 2000, Infowar’s Alex Jones was able to get in and out without any major problems and secretly filmed a ceremony called “The Cremation of Care.” Jones said:
So, I was there witnessing something right out of the medieval painter Hieronymus Bosch’s Visions of Hell: burning metal crosses, priests in red and black robes with the high priest in a silver robe with a red cape, a burning body screaming in pain, a giant stone great-horned owl, world leaders, bankers, media and the head of academia engaged in these activities. It was total insanity.
Many U.S. presidents have been members of the grove. Richard Nixon was a member and said that it was the “most faggy god—n thing you could ever imagine.” Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush were members too. In 2007, when confronted by a heckler, Bill Clinton said he had never been to the grove and that it’s “where all those rich Republicans go up and stand naked against redwood trees.”

Italian Supreme Court President Writes Book Linking Bilderberg to Operation Gladio and the CIA
“The Bilderberg Group is behind the so-called ‘strategy of tension,’ and therefore the massacres,” says Ferdinando Imposimato, Honorary President of the Supreme Court as he makes references to a document written more than 40 years ago – and which was almost lost- during the promotion of his new book, “La repubblica delle stragi impunite,” which translates to “The republic where massacres go unpunished.”
From the Italian News Website www.net1news.org

Translated by Mario Andrade for www.Deadlinelive.info
NAPLES – “The Bilderberg Group is one of the leading organizations behind the strategy of tension, and therefore the (Operation Gladio) massacres.” This statement is not just mentioned by bloggers or conspiracy theorists, or even Beppe Grillo, but Ferdinando Imposimato, Honorary President of the Supreme Court. The former magistrate, who would be proclaimed by the ’5-Star Movement’ as one of the possible presidential candidates, speaks in Naples during the promotion of his new book.
His words are very clear. “We found the truth about the massacres,” he says in an interview with a journalist. “There has been complicity between the state -or factions of the state- and the Mafia, as well as (black ops) terrorism and freemasonry. These elements came together during Operation Gladio, and consist of multiple international organizations, controlled by the CIA. This is a proven fact, “ he says. The purpose of their actions was to destabilize public order and stabilize the political power.
The 40-year-old document
In his book, Ferdinando Imposimato also speaks of the Bilderberg Group, mentioned in a document written by Emilio Alessandrini in 1967 -more than 40 years ago. “In this document, which I have quoted literally, it is mentioned that the Bildenberg Group is one of the biggest promoters of the strategy of tension, and therefore also behind the massacres. Here’s what Bilderberg does: It rules the world and democracies in an invisible way, influencing the democratic development of these countries.”
It is important for Italians to know this, for some of their countrymen are among the members of this group and the Trilateral Commission, like of Mario Monti, the current Prime Minister, John Elkann, Chairman of Fiat Group, Pier Francesco Guarguaglini, former president of Finmeccanica or Marco Tronchetti Provera, chairman of Pirelli, also Enrico Letta, vice secretary of the Democratic Party.
The city council in the town of Nelson, Georgia voted unanimously in favor of every resident possessing a gun at their homes. Now it’s compulsory for all of them, and Nelson isn’t the only US town to vote for a measure like this.
In Kennesaw, GA., a town 25 miles northwest of Atlanta there is a law requiring every household to own a gun and the ammunition to use it, helping to put the community on the map in a most unusual way.

“Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal. An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945. Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.”
– From article in the New Zealand Herald (New Zealand’s leading newspaper), 9/25/1999
A declassified government report (96 MB file) featured in the newspaper article below shows that a tsunami bomb was created as a potential weapon during WWII in a program code-named Project Seal. There is little doubt that this tsunami weapon was further developed and refined over the ensuing decades, though all documents related to current developments of the project are almost certainly still classified. Though it may seem far-fetched to imagine military involvement, these documents and reports raise serious questions about the recent tsunami in Japan and the December 26, 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.
The many layers of intense secrecy both in the government and military result in very few people being aware of the gruesome capabilities for death and destruction that have been developed over the years. Were it not for the below article in New Zealand’s leading newspaper, the public would never have known that a tsunami bomb had been created many decades ago. No one denies that highly destructive weapons are being developed in secret by the militaries of the world. What the public doesn’t know is what these weapons are, and what they are being used for. All of this is generally classified for reasons of “national security.”
Sadly, the rubric of “national security” has all to often been used for secret political and economic gains which clearly do not benefit the public. Operation Northwoods, uncovered by ABC News in the year 2000, showed that the top Pentagon generals were willing to foment terrorism and sacrifice innocent civilians in order to provoke a war with Cuba in the early 1960s. Credible researchers into the government’s HAARP program are convinced that this technology which manipulates our ionosphere is being used for military means and can even cause natural disasters like earthquakes. Because of this, we have to ask the hard questions.
It is unprecedented in recorded history for two major tidal waves to occur less than seven years apart. See brief descriptions of the 10 most destructive tsunamis in recorded history at this link. For four intriguing theories on what might have caused the Japanese earthquake (including one which predicted the date), click here. Theory two seems ridiculous, but the other three are worth considering. The fourth theory is based on HAARP and has some good information about that possibility.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.
Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.
