Two More of Tamerlan Tsarnaev's Fellow Travelers

I'm back from vacation... I see the jihad is still jihading. At least the not dead ones.

Via Intelwire:

Syndney Morning Herald: A Canadian boxer killed fighting with jihadists in Russia has emerged as a key contact who might have set the elder Boston bomber on his path to violent extremism.

In what could be a breakthrough in understanding how Tamerlan Tsarnaev himself a skilled boxer became radicalised and turned to violence, Moscow's respected newspaper Novaya Gazeta revealed his links with William Plotnikov, who was killed last July by security forces in the troubled southern Russian republic of Dagestan.

Two days after Plotnikov's death, Tsarnaev flew to Moscow, and the next day to the US.

"After Nidal and Plotnikov were destroyed and he lost his contacts, Tsarnaev got frightened and fled."

Why those Tsarnaev boys have more connections to Jihad than a dog has fleas.
