Believing Your Own Propaganda

    Before this event, if someone had come to you and said, you know, the Russians have told us that this American, a legal permanent resident, Chechen nationality, has radical Islamic connections, we want you to do something about it. You know, the first thing that would have popped into your head was: The Russians are up to something.
Thus spake the "veteran CIA officer and former deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center" quoted here — FBI Criticized For Failing To 'Connect Dots' In Boston Case.

Really? Disbelieving Russians and trusting Chechens? I'm neither a "veteran CIA officer" nor a "former deputy director of the National Counterterrorism Center" but rather just a moderately informed guy who's read the news for the past twenty years or more and who remembers the Beslan school hostage crisis, and "the first thing that would have popped into [my] head was" not that "[t]he Russians [we]re up to something."

In a related note, Steve Sailer reminds us of the inconvenient truth that "the elder Tsarnaevs' recent return to Russian Dagestan suggests that their asylum in the U.S. was fraudulent" — Did Tsarnaevs get asylum through Deep State nepotism and string-pulling? Does "asylum" even mean anthing, or is it just a way to make us feel good about ourselves?

[Speaking of Steve Sailer, this exposure of his of neocon "divide-and-conquer shuck-and-jive" is really spot on — David Brooks goes beyond self-parody.]

The Buchananite policy in this regard is the best one: time to stop letting people into the country, period.
