                Quote:

                The Chechens are a largely Muslim ethnic group that has lived for centuries in the mountainous North Caucasus region.

                According to the U.S. State Department, the Islamic International Peacekeeping Brigade (IIPB) is the primary channel for Islamic funding of the Chechen guerillas, in part through links to al-Qaeda-related financiers on the Arabian Peninsula. The United States also defined the Chechnya-based Special Purpose Islamic Regiment (SPIR) and the Riyadus-Salikhin Reconnaissance and Sabotage Battalion of Chechen Martyrs as terrorist entities in February 2003.

                • Per the uncles' statements they've been here about ten years. That would indicate they became radicalized here and probably fairly recently.

                  • The perps are identified as two Chechin brothers who went on a crime spree afterwards.

                      • According to the news this morning. One of the perps is dead and the other in the wind. Chechins. Cops think these guy's apartment is booby trapped. These guys seem like tha guy who shot up the theatre. Brothers, the oldest 26 is the one who has been killed. One cop killed and a security guard also. Shootouts in Watertown Mass. These guys had been students in Boston area schools for the past two years.

                        What could have been going on within these guy's heads? Did they learn this kind of thinking while attending college?

                          Doubt it.

                          • According to newswires, the older brother try to 'suicide' himself with a chest-strapped bomb so the younger brother could escape. The police cut him down before he could detonate.

                            They were throwing a lot of explosives, as well.

                            My chief question is how these people obtained/or obtained the skills necessary to produce these bombs. I suspect that there was another party involved that aided them.

                              • got a source locked down at home right now who's normally at MassGen; the older brother was actually run over accidentally by the younger brother.
                                Plus, what really helped also was the guy who had his legs blown off and was in the wheelchair and had his artery being pinched off (at least that's what it looks like) by Arredondo, he id'ed the older brother as the one who dropped off one of the backpacks in front. Described him accurately enough for video tagging.
