as noted, debka advances the theory that the chechnyan brothers were double agents. i find the theory quite plausible, and even likely. http://wintersoldier2008.typepad.com/summer_patriot_winter_sol/2013/04/a-comment-by-sdee-at-the-right-scoop-the-two-chechnyans-were-perhaps-double-agents-who-went-south-on.html .
and, very troubling, extremely disturbing.
think of it.
if you are a terrorist, or want to be a terrorist, or have leanings that way, then all you have to do to gain your skills and learn your craft and obtain your materials, supplies and arms, and to espouse your cause, ... , well, all you have to do to do that with absolute impunity is to become a double agent for one of the western intelligence agencies.
and prepare, and go operational at your leisure, when you have picked your target.
not to mention, to have enough money to live on, and even partake in a little luxury, or buy a luxury item, such as a mercedes benz automobile. i've been lying awake this night, thinking of that mercedes. where, or where, did a couple of kids immigrated in from chechnya, get all the money to buy a mercedes? and, even more impressively, where did they get the money to have a mercedes worked on by a mercedes mechanic: those guys don't come cheap, you know.
in my little addled attic, this is the sort of detail that just ties the bow over the gift wrap on the debka package, and makes the notion that these kids were double agents "who went bad" go from plausible, to probable.
but, i digress. let us move back to "doubling down" as the perfect cover for a fundamentalist and/or romantic islamic terrorist. how delicious, for such a person to contemplate his own cleverness and treachery, and to know that his coming attacks are being funded by his enemy.
to my mind, such considerations determine with chilling logic and rational consideration the absolute & utter stupidity of using muslims as "double agents." what in god's name do you offer them to secure their loyalty, and their trust.
and, god's name is the direct issue. isn't it.
for, it is to god that a muslim owes his obeisance. his obedience. his loyalty. and, to a devout muslim, no earthly consideration is going to sway that. and, to a devout muslim, no earthly consideration is going to alter the fact that the infidel is not only his enemy, but, allah's.
it is utter stupidity to think otherwise. it is intellectual delusion, to the point of depravity, to think that it can be otherwise. i think that we have a lot of stupid people in our intelligence circles.
and, one conniving, calculating, despicable rat bastard in the white house.

p.s. the chechnyan brothers. the brothers ___________ . (you write the name in, it disgusts me.) the perfect foils, the perfect employees for some. and, to the brothers ____________, some employers make the perfect & moneyed, useful idiots.
the "patron" as victim, as it were.
