1) The perpetrators are said to be radical Chechen Muslim extremists. The same types the US has just announced it is stepping up funding to in Syria, to the tune of $130 million. In fact, the Chechen extremists feel such a strong kinship with the US-allied insurgents in Syria, that many of them have made the trip to Syria to fight alongside their fellow Jihadis. Secretary of State John Kerry, who announced the increasing support for the Syrian rebels, should, under Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, be indefinitely detained by the US government without charge or trial for “substantially support(ing)…associated forces that are engaged in hostilities against the United States.”
2) The Chechen extremists with whom the alleged bombers are allied, have strong allies among the neo-conservatives in the United States:
“[T]he leading group which pleads the Chechen cause is the American Committee for Peace in Chechnya (ACPC). The list of the self-styled ‘distinguished Americans’ who are its members is a rollcall of the most prominent neoconservatives who so enthusastically support the ‘war on terror’.
“They include Richard Perle, the notorious Pentagon adviser; Elliott Abrams of Iran-Contra fame; Kenneth Adelman, the former US ambassador to the UN who egged on the invasion of Iraq by predicting it would be ‘a cakewalk’; Midge Decter, biographer of Donald Rumsfeld and a director of the rightwing Heritage Foundation; Frank Gaffney of the militarist Centre for Security Policy; Bruce Jackson, former US military intelligence officer and one-time vice-president of Lockheed Martin, now president of the US Committee on Nato; Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute, a former admirer of Italian fascism and now a leading proponent of regime change in Iran; and R James Woolsey, the former CIA director who is one of the leading cheerleaders behind George Bush’s plans to re-model the Muslim world along pro-US lines.”
After Boston, according to Section 1021 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012, these individuals listed above should be indefinitely detained by the US government without trial or charge, as they have clearly provided assistance via their public support for the ACPC to “associated forces” of those who attack the United States.
Normally I am not one to call for the arrest of others, but clearly these individuals are in violation of the anti-terrorism laws of the United States and if the “war on terrorism” is to be taken seriously must be apprehended immediately, before any more harm can be done to the United States.8:14 pm on April 21, 2013 Email Daniel McAdams
