CIA ex-in-law of Bomb Brothers confirms one of my theories

Eighties-ish: Robert De Pacino, Joan Jettski,
Baby Kaboom, Uncle Mahamad Harmon
Earlier today, I recounted Mad Cow Morning News' report that the Bomb Brothers' Uncle Ruslan, the widely admired straight-talking tough guy who lives in Maryland, used to be married to the daughter of Graham E. Fuller, who describes himself on his website:
Uncle Ruslan
Graham E. Fuller is a former vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council at the CIA, a former senior political scientist at RAND, and a current adjunct professor of history at Simon Fraser University. He is the author of numerous books about the Middle East, including The Future of Political Islam. He has lived and worked in the Muslim world for nearly two decades. 

Wikipedia also claims Fuller was CIA station chief in Kabul and instrumental in starting the Iran-Contra Affair.

Graham Fuller, ex-Agency and
ex-father-in-law of Uncle Ruslan
So, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was just following a family tradition when he married an upper middle class American doctor's daughter. American women can't get enough of these Tsarnaev men, can they? 

In an e-mail to The Back Channel, Fuller confirmed that his daughter had been married to Uncle Ruslan, who is a lawyer big in Central Asian oil and gas negotiations, but the pair got divorced in 1999. 

Fuller made an interesting observation about his ex-in-laws that supports my surmise of a few days ago that the pan-Islamism of the Bomb Brothers and the Bomb Mom was one logical (but not logically necessary) outcome of their propensity for inter-ethnic marriage:
According to Fuller, the suspects’ mother Zubeidat Tsarnaeva was not an ethnic Chechen herself, but Dagestani, and so the family spoke the couple’s common language Russian, not Chechen, at home. “People who lose their native language (identity) sometimes are more fanatic in some respects,” he observed.

I suspect that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar might have been content with Chechen nationalism, with its impressive history of violence, but their mixed ancestry and Tamerlan's American convert wife made pan-Islamism a more appropriate outlet for their aggressive energies.

By the way, Fuller's new book is a memoir. Here's his blurb for it:
Three Truths and a Lie.
This latest book by author Graham E. Fuller is the compelling tale of Luke, a Korean adoptee who comes to an American family at age one and who gradually loses his life's way - to die from crack cocaine at age 21. It is also a story of his adoptive father, a CIA officer, who offers an unsparing and vivid account of his own efforts - wise, misguided, passionate, naive, creative, ultimately unsuccessful - to save his son. 
Luke is warm, likeable, funny, quick to win friends - and a skilled deceiver, able to impress others with a seeming maturity and urbanity. But the image he works to create for himself is increasingly belied by the realities of his life. Fuller writes of his poignant quest through multiple crises to understand who Luke really was - against the black hole Luke's life created for his family around him - and the search for meaning. The fast-moving action unfolds against a broad international backdrop from Afghanistan to Latin America. 
We explore the mysteries of adoption, identity, addiction - and grace.

Foreign adoption rackets are just another way to guilt trip more and more Americans into importing more of the Third World.

I've known a few affluent couples who adopted Russian orphans, Korean orphans, and orphans from other countries - every one of these couples' adoptees has caused them no end of grief. Know what I mean, GENE?

Listen now: I'm playing "Kumbaya" on the world's tiniest violin.

If it weren't for the bombing, this guy would make me think the world would be better if all Muslims were Chechen Muslims. I've travled all around the Middle East, and Muslims there seem disagreeably cagy: lying all the time, being overly polite. I wonder if it is common for most Muslims to be "straight shooters" like this uncle fella.

It is sad to see Western and Russian culture being replaced by Islamic dictatorships in places like Turkey, Albania, the Caucuses, Syria, Lebanon, and Algeria. Only the Gulf states are being Westernized these days. In 1980s Dagestan apparently women walked the streets looking like Cyndi Lauper. Now they get beat up by thugs if they are not wearing veils.

Of course we have many hinterlands, and maybe it is different in others.

Good candidate for down the memory hole.

The people I've talked too seem more interested in the guy in prison who had five kids with the guards.

But in the hinterland people just aren't talking about it, or seem to be much interested in it.

Living in the hinterlands myself, I can think of a few reasons for that:

The MSM hasn't really settled on a narrative and started beating us over the head with it yet, so people don't have anything solid to absorb or reject yet. First the bombers were Caucasian -- practically Timothy McVeigh, maybe even Boy Scouts -- and now they did it because they were mistreated for their foreignness (non-whiteness). People just aren't sure what the story is to talk about.

This is going to sound bad, but: to people in the rural hinterlands, places like Boston and NYC are practically foreign countries. We certainly don't have much in common with the people who live there, especially the kind who go to marathons (something I haven't seen discussed much: how many foreigners were at the marathon? I'd assume the Boston Marathon is an international event, so it's hardly the place to bomb if you're targeting only Americans). So this doesn't feel much different than, say, a couple of Swedes killing some people in England.

As I said, I know that sounds bad. But that's the natural result of multiculturalism and the way our elites -- concentrated in that part of the east coast -- have used diversity to tear down national unity. If farmers in Kansas don't get emotional about some SWPL joggers getting killed in Boston, who's fault is that?

9/11 was different because the terrorists made it clear that they were attacking "America" as a whole, plus 3000>3, and the diversity-driven divisions are just a lot worse than they were 12 years ago. In 2001, it was still possible to think our government would wake up and get things like the border and student visa programs under control. It's not possible to believe that anymore; the only question is whether they don't do it on purpose or out of malevolence. So even if you get worked up about it, then what? We know nothing will happen -- except for trying to find a way to blame us -- and it'll just be a matter of time until it happens again. But it won't be out here in nowheresville, so....

sunbeam, I think the whole story is alien to Flyover Country. Can you see someone like Rick Perry "locking down" Dallas.

A lot of the country would probably think that the Blue State idiots are only reaping what they've sown. As one living here in MA, I tend to agree.

But you really have to live here to understand the-over-the-top narcissism of SWPL marathon crowd, which is part of why the story has remained Page 1, above the fold for 2 weeks. A woman I know ran the Boston Marathon once, and since the bombing her facebook page has been gushing with long screeds about how being runner defines her and I could have been her at the finish line, blah blah blah. She went to the finish line yesterday "the first day I could even think about visiting the site" to have a good cry.

The Iran-Contra affair was pretty devious and very embarrassing for the US when it came to light. Being wily and cunning seems to be the stock-in-trade of most intelligence services and foreign policy in general. Whenever there's a pan type movement of any sort- religious, ideological, economic, ethnic, geographic- there's usually a country that puts itself out as the leader of it, the first amongst equals. For Islam there's a number of contenders. Saudi Arabia, our great ally, pours out a lot of money around the world into influencing the thinking of Muslims everywhere, all the while playing a game of making sure the royal family stays in power as the guardian of Mecca whilst personally living scandalously high on the hog. Religious zealots make good cannon fodder against designated targets of the US and it's ally SA, against Russia in Afghanistan and in the Caucasus, in Bosnia, Kosovo, Libya, Syria. Being as it's an idea it can't be safely contained within borders; encouraging it as a tool against others is really playing with matches.

They are a hard, vicious, violent people. Per Solzhenitsyn, they were the one nation that wouldn't roll over, even in the GULag. In many ways, those are admirable traits.

Ah, but Uncle Ruslan seems reasonable!

http://www.boilingfrogspost.com/2013/04/27/bfp-breaking-news-boston-terror-cias-graham-fuller-nato-cia-operation-gladio-b-caucasus-central-asia/

"I presented CIA’s Graham Fuller as one of the top culprits in my State Secrets Privilege Case when the government invoked the State Secrets Privilege and several additional gag orders to cover up the FBI’s investigations and files pertaining to CIA-NATO terror operations in Central Asia & the Caucasus since the mid-1990s. Guess what? I provided this information to the US media long before it became public in 2008 via my website and this website. Not a single media outlet (including quasi and pseudo ones) was willing to touch this. And this, despite of all the gag orders, state secrets privilege invocations, congressional gag orders … you name it. I could name more than a dozen publications that said: ‘no way.’

Not only that. I have been covering one of the main CIA operation figures in Central Asia & the Caucasus-Imam Fethullah Gulen, and this Turkish Imam’s relationship and official Connections to CIA’s Graham Fuller. I’ve been doing this since 2009. Let me provide you with a few explosive examples and excerpts. First a few excerpts from over two years ago published at Boiling Frogs Post:

Turkish Intel Chief Exposes CIA Operations via Islamic Group in Central Asia

First of all, there have been tens if not hundreds of articles establishing Graham Fuller as one of Gulen’s official references to the court for his residency, you can view some of these here, here, here. This quote comes from Foreign Policy Journal:

Fethullah Gulen became a green card holder despite serious opposition from FBI and from Homeland Security Department. Former CIA officers (formally and informally) such as Graham Fuller and Morton Abromovitz were some of the prominent references in Gulen’s green card application.

After years of investigating him the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security, due to his guardian angels in the State Department and the CIA, are prevented from bringing an indictment against him, so they try to kick him out of the US. But once again Gulen’s CIA angels step in and portray Gulen as a scholar, despite the fact that Fethullah Gulen doesn’t even have a high-school diploma and never went beyond the 5th grade. Among his angels who vouched for him were Graham Fuller, George Fidas, and Morton Abramowitz.

You may remember one of these foreign policy makers from my State Secrets Privilege Gallery and my under oath testimony in the Krikorian case. Here is a quote from Graham A. Fuller, former Deputy Director of the CIA’s National Council on Intelligence:

‘The policy of guiding the evolution of Islam and of helping them against our adversaries worked marvelously well in Afghanistan against the Red Army. The same doctrines can still be used to destabilize what remains of Russian power, and especially to counter the Chinese influence in Central Asia.’"

It couldn't have been that gradual if he was dead by 21. What the earliest he could have started using? Maybe 14, so he had all of 7 years to "gradually" decline to the point he was dead.

Luke Lea said...

OT, but a general question: if populations have been under selection for some particular trait -- beauty, intelligence, height, or whatever -- and that selection is relaxed, will the population gradually beome less beautiful, intelligent, tall, etc.?

I ask because of the general idea of reversion to the mean, which is big on this blog, and because there was an experiment back in the 1930's (I think) with fruit flies at Columbia U. in which they selected for bristle number. After many generations the average bristle number increased rather dramatically, but when selection was relaxed they gradually reverted to the wild type.

Why wouldn't this apply to humans over the long-run?

(What got me thinking on this is that there seem to be more beautiful women in 1930's Hollywood movies than today.)

It might depend on what the basis for selection changes to.

For example if you have selection on overall attractiveness (based on a collection of traits including height, health, looks, intelligence etc) then you may be actually selecting on the basis of low genetic load.

Say a population specifically selected for height for some reason - maybe the extra leverage was good for throwing javelins at mammoths or something - and then stopped but replaced it with selecting for low genetic load - would that lead to them becoming shorter over time?

I can't see why it would.

On the other hand if they switched from selecting on height to selecting on IQ or to having arranged marriages based on property regardless of individual traits then i assume they'd get shorter.

.
"(What got me thinking on this is that there seem to be more beautiful women in 1930's Hollywood movies than today.)"

My take is they kept the faces and breasts from the 1930s but lost the hips. Modern Hollywood seems to prefer boyish hips. There may be other explanations for that.

You raise an interesting point about the male Tsarnaevs marrying white American women.

As you've probably noticed, the men from these darker ethnicities (e.g. Middle-Eastern) tend to be handsome and attractive and get a lot of attention from women. There are plenty of white American men who can't get any women, let alone start families with them at 25. Nonetheless, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, a recent immigrant with bad English, had no problems marrying a very pretty white American girl.

There are also stories floating around of him being successful in nightclubs where he was a popular party guy.

I've seen the same thing in my local nightclubs and it's definitely true that these dark-featured men from the Middle East get a lot of interest from women. Peter Frost has done studies showing that women respond strongly to dark, swarthy men and perceive them as more masculine.

It seems that some ethnicities "export" highly sought-after males while others "export" sought-after females, such as Asians. Asian women are popular and in high demand by all kinds of men in America, thanks to being feminine, slender, and attractive.

Would you like to take a look at these phenomena in future posts?

Anonymous said...

In addition to being swarthy, Tamerlan Tsarnaev was 6'3" and had a reputation for toughness. Perhaps those features also played a role in his popularity with American women.

The Chechens aren't garden-variety Middle Easterners, and their genetics are somewhat different as well. I doubt you would confuse many Chechens for Saudis or vice versa, and people from those groups aren't particularly close on a plot of autosomal DNA similarity.

Glossy said...

The Armenian who is supposed to have radicalized Tammy Tsarnaev has been tracked. Who knew he was real?

According to the New York Review of Books, the man's father is an Armenian Christian (tautology), his mom a Ukrainian and he himself is a convert to Islam.

The surname, Allakhverdov, is neither Armenian nor Slavic. Well, the -ov ending is Russian, but in the post-Soviet context that says little about ethnicity. The Allakh part seems to refer to Allah. He was born in Baku. My guess: his paternal grandfather might have been an Azeri Muslim, his paternal grandmother an Armenian Christian. So there might have been some Islam in his family history before his conversion. That would make said conversion a little less weird.

Fuller is an English surname.

Or Scots-Irish .

Glossy said...

"I doubt you would confuse many Chechens for Saudis or vice versa..."

A lot of Middle Easterners have some sub-Saharan admixture, which presumably comes from the slave trade. This is especially obvious in Yemen and Egypt, but one can see it further afield.

The Caucasus is a mountainous, relatively inaccessible refuge for a lot of archaic stuff. It has language families which have died out elsewhere. It still has some paganism. It has blood feuds, bride stealing and open tribalism. It has also preserved the Middle Eastern physical type. If Swedes and Norwegians are the most extreme examples of the European type, then I'd say that Armenians are the most extreme example of the Middle Eastern type. And the other Caucasus natives aren't far behind.

Glossy said...

More on the NY Review of Books story on the blond Armenian Muslim who radicalized Tamerlan:

In the comments to that piece someone linked to a Russian Wikipedia article on a KGB major-general who died in 1968 and who had the exact same name as the blond Armenian Muslim named by uncle Ruslan: Mikhail Allakhverdov. The Russian wiki says that the KGB major-general was an ethnic Armenian.

I've never in my life met any Armenians who had un-Armenian names. The thought of an ethnic Armenian with the word Allah in his surname boggles my mind. Yet today I've learned of the existence of two such people. And they have the same first name too. One is a long-ago deceased KGB major-general, the other a convert to Islam in New England who is linked to the Tsarnaev case.

What are the odds that the New England Armenian Mikhail Allakhverdov is a grandson of the KGB Mikhail Allakhverdov? I don't know. Maybe that name is more common among Armenians than I'm assuming?

To the extent it is accurate that women find such ethnicities relatively attractive, such a phenomenon could easily be merely the result of a combination of two factors: (1) the prevalent anti-white propaganda in the media and the culture, and (2) the fact that Northern European men are giving away their power (open borders being an obvious example, but more generally there is a lack of solidarity which translates to lack of power in this rough and tumble world).

As a side note: Zionist Jews work assiduously to undermine solidarity among the men of rival groups.

Aren't women attractive to status and power, as well as to looks (perhaps even more so)?

I feel like I am seeing significantly more black men-white women couples in the last 3-4 years. Could the message of black success conveyed on television be a factor? It doesn't hurt that we have a black president--a white woman could think that her offspring could be presidential material.
