"I Hope I Didn't Contribute To It"
Over the past couple of weeks, I've pumped out thousands of words on the dark and ugly geopolitics that form the backdrop to the Boston Marathon bombing. Most of that will appear in the upcoming Print Edition (Issue 3) of NSFWCORP — but for now, I want to bring up a couple of incredibly strange leads in the Tsarnaev brothers' stories. It seems the media has lost interest in trying to make sense of the Tsarnaevs' terror attack on the Boston Marathon that left three dead and over 260 injured — too many unsolved mysteries, too much journalistic energy wasted chasing down the ridiculous "Misha" phantom.
Keep in mind that no matter how weird some of this material gets — and it does get weird — it does have an explanation. Not a pretty explanation, not anything that will make you feel any better about what happened in Boston and what's going on in the part of the world the Tsarnaev brothers come from — and not a simple explanation either, which is why the full story will have to wait for the print edition.
For now, I want to start with one of the biggest "What The Fuck?!" in the bombing story, a detail so far completely overlooked: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's high school project "mentor," Brian Glyn Williams. Brian Glyn Williams happens to work for the CIA, on Islamic suicide bombers, Chechnya, and jihadi terrorism. Williams is also an associate professor of history at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth, the university where 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was enrolled, and where he spent many of his last free hours between the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15, and his arrest on April 19.
