Old Home(land Security) Week in Boston: “Fee, Fi . . . Ho Hum” (Part 2)

COMMENT: In the imme­di­ate after­math of the Boston bomb­ings, we post­ed about some of the con­sid­er­a­tions to be weighed [3] in eval­u­at­ing the event, inevitably fac­ing over­sim­pli­fi­ca­tion.

Short­ly after­ward, we post­ed again, not­ing that the usu­al sus­pects [4] were com­ing into (pre­dictable) focus in the after­math of the event.

As more infor­ma­tion sur­faces (and more dis­in­for­ma­tion is float­ed), the pro­files of the ele­ments of this milieu come into clear­er view.

We advise strong­ly against sim­plis­tic analy­sis, as we warned in our first post on the sub­ject. The prob­a­bil­i­ty is very strong that we are deal­ing with a sit­u­a­tion involv­ing dou­ble and triple agents–a sit­u­a­tion that will be impos­si­ble for an out­side observ­er (and some of the inside observers) to fig­ure out, past a point.

What is becom­ing obvi­ous is that we are  deal­ing with an intel­li­gence milieu involved with the Chechen gueril­las and the com­plex, dead­ly real­i­ties con­nect­ed with The Earth Island Boo­gie [5]. The pol­i­tics in the back­ground of the bomb­ing over­lap the inter­sect­ing milieux of neo-Ottoman pow­er pol­i­tics [6] and what we have termed “Turk­ish Taffy” [7]–the cos­met­ic pre­sen­ta­tion of Turkey’s Islamist gov­ern­ment [8] of Erdo­gan as “demo­c­ra­t­ic” and “mod­er­ate.”

In addi­tion to his past employ­ment by the Agency for Inter­na­tion­al Devel­op­ment and a sub­sidiary of Hal­libur­ton, the alleged bombers’ uncle was mar­ried to the daugh­ter of a for­mer CIA officer–Graham E. Fuller, a for­mer sta­tion chief in Kab­ul.

It was Fuller who was quot­ed in FTR #513 [9] (among oth­er pro­grams) advo­cat­ing a U.S. alliance [10] with the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood, a posi­tion that was appar­ent­ly real­ized dur­ing the Arab Spring gam­bit.

For­mer­ly post­ed to Ankara, Turkey, Gra­ham E. Fuller has been out­spo­ken [11] in defense of the Fetul­lah Gulen orga­niz­tion [12], an insid­i­ous Islamist cult with appar­ent intel­li­gence con­nec­tions. The Gulen orga­ni­za­tion acts as an enforce­ment arm [7] of the Erdo­gan gov­ern­ment in Turkey.

Note­wor­thy in this con­text is Uncle Tsarni’s found­ing of a Rockville, MD-based orga­ni­za­tion called the “Con­gress of Chechen Inter­na­tion­al,” which sounds very much like  an intel­li­gence front.

“Boston Bombers’ Uncle Mar­ried Daugh­ter of Top CIA Offi­cial” by Daniel  Hop­sick­er; Mad Cow Morn­ing News; 4/26/2013. [13]

EXCERPT: The uncle of the two sus­pect­ed Boston bombers in last week’s attack, Rus­lan Tsarni, was mar­ried to the daugh­ter of for­mer top CIA offi­cial Gra­ham Fuller

The dis­cov­ery that Uncle Rus­lan Tsarni had spy con­nec­tions that go far deep­er than had been pre­vi­ous­ly known is iron­ic, espe­cial­ly since the main­stre­an medi­a’s focus yes­ter­day was on a fever­ish search to find who might have recruit­ed the Tsar­naev broth­ers.

The chief sus­pect was a red-haired Armen­ian exor­cist. They were fin­ger­ing a sus­pect who may not, in fact, even exist. . . .

. . . . Rus­lan Tsarni mar­ried the daugh­ter of for­mer top CIA offi­cial Gra­ham Fuller, who spent 20 years as oper­a­tions offi­cer in Turkey, Lebanon, Sau­di Ara­bia, Yemen, Afghanistan, and Hong Kong. In 1982 Fuller was appoint­ed the Nation­al Intel­li­gence Offi­cer for Near East and South Asia at the CIA, and in 1986, under Ronald Rea­gan, he became the Vice-Chair­man of the Nation­al Intel­li­gence Coun­cil, with over­all respon­si­bil­i­ty for nation­al lev­el strate­gic fore­cast­ing.

At the time of their mar­riage, Rus­lan Tsarni was known as Rus­lan Tsar­naev, the same last name as his nephews Tamer­lan and Dzhokhar Tsar­naev, the alleged bombers.

It is unknown when he changed his last name to Tsarni.

What is known is that some­time in the ear­ly 1990’s, while she was a grad­u­ate stu­dent in North Car­oli­na, and he was in law school at Duke, Rus­lan Tsar­naev met and mar­ried Saman­tha Ankara Fuller, the daugh­ter of Gra­ham and Pru­dence Fuller of Rockville Mary­land. Her mid­dle name sug­gests a ref­er­ence to one of her father’s CIA post­ings.

The cou­ple divorced some­time before 2004.

Today Ms. Fuller lives abroad, and is a direc­tor of sev­er­al com­pa­nies pur­su­ing strate­gies to increase ener­gy pro­duc­tion from clean-burn­ing and renew­able resources.

On a more omi­nous note, Gra­ham Fuller was list­ed as one of the Amer­i­can Deep State rogues on Sibel Edmonds’ State Secrets Priv­i­lege Gallery,. Edmonds explained it fea­tured sub­jects of FBI inves­ti­ga­tions she became aware of dur­ing her time as an FBI trans­la­tor.

Crim­i­nal activ­i­ties were being pro­tect­ed by claims of State Secrets, she assert­ed. After Attor­ney Gen­er­al John Ashcroft went all the way to the Supreme Court to muz­zle her under a lit­tle-used doc­trine of State Secrets, she put up twen­ty-one pho­tos, with no names.

One of them was Gra­ham Fuller.

“Con­gress of Chechen Inter­na­tion­al” c/o Gra­ham Fuller

A sto­ry about a Chechen oik exec/uncle pair­ing up with a top CIA offi­cial who once served as CIA Sta­tion Chief in Kab­ul sounds like a pitch for a bad movie.

But the two men may have been in busi­ness togeth­er.

In 1995, Tsar­naev incor­po­rat­ed the Con­gress of Chechen Inter­na­tion­al Orga­ni­za­tions in Mary­land, using as the address list­ed on incor­po­ra­tion doc­u­ments 11114 Whis­per­wood Ln, in Rockville Mary­land, the home address of his then-father-in-law.

It is just eight miles up the Wash­ing­ton Nation­al Pike from the Mont­gomery Vil­lage home where “Uncle Rus­lan” met—and appar­ent­ly wowed, the press after the attack in Boston. . . .

“In Search Of Friends Among The Foes” by John Mintz and Dou­glas Farah; The Wash­ing­ton Post; 9/ 11/ 2004. [10]

EXCERPT: . . . .Some fed­eral agents wor­ry that the Mus­lim Broth­er­hood has dan­ger­ous links to ter­ror­ism. But some U.S. diplo­mats and intel­li­gence offi­cials believe its influ­ence offers an oppor­tu­nity for polit­i­cal engage­ment that could help iso­late vio­lent jihadists. ‘It is the pre­em­i­nent move­ment in the Mus­lim world,’ said Gra­ham E. Fuller, a for­mer CIA offi­cial spe­cial­iz­ing in the Mid­dle East. ‘It’s some­thing we can work with.’ Demo­niz­ing the Broth­er­hood ‘would be fool­hardy in the extreme’ he warned.” . . .

“Islam­ic group is CIA front, ex-Turk­ish Intel Chief Says” by Jeff Stein; The Wash­ing­ton Post; 1/5/2011. [11]

EXCERPT: A mem­oir by a top for­mer Turk­ish intel­li­gence offi­cial claims that a world­wide mod­er­ate Islam­ic move­ment based in Penn­syl­va­nia has been pro­vid­ing cov­er for the CIA since the mid-1990s.

The mem­oir, rough­ly ren­dered in Eng­lish as “Wit­ness to Rev­o­lu­tion and Near Anar­chy,” by retired Turk­ish intel­li­gence offi­cial Osman Nuri Gun­des, says the reli­gious-tol­er­ance move­ment, led by an influ­en­tial for­mer Turk­ish imam by the name of Fethul­lah Gulen, has 600 schools and 4 mil­lion fol­low­ers around the world.

In the 1990s, Gun­des alleges, the move­ment “shel­tered 130 CIA agents” at its schools in Kyr­gyzs­tan and Uzbek­istan alone, accord­ing to a report on his mem­oir Wednes­day by the Paris-based Intel­li­gence Online newslet­ter. . . .

. . . . Like­wise, Gra­ham Fuller, a for­mer CIA sta­tion chief in Kab­ul and author of “The Future of Polit­i­cal Islam,” threw cold water on Gundes’s alle­ga­tions about Kyr­gyzs­tan and Uzbek­istan.

“I think the sto­ry of 130 CIA agents in Gulen schools in Cen­tral Asia is pret­ty wild,” Fuller said by e‑mail.

“I should has­ten to add that I left CIA in 1987 — near­ly 25 years ago — and I have absolute­ly no con­crete per­son­al knowl­edge what­so­ev­er about this. But my instincts tell me the claim is high­ly improb­a­ble.”

Fuller added, “I can­not even imag­ine try­ing to cred­i­bly sell such a scheme with a straight face with­in the agency. As for Nuri Gun­des, I am not aware of who he is or what he has writ­ten. But there is a lot of wild stuff float­ing around in Turkey on these issues and Gulen is a real hot but­ton issue.” . . . .
