Chechen President: U.S. to Blame

Chechen President Ramzan Kadyrov, who is very active on social media, took to Instagram on Friday to issue a statement on the Boston Marathon bombings and to place the blame for the suspects’ actions on the United States. “Any attempt to link Chechnya and the Tsarnaevs, if indeed they are guilty, are futile,” he wrote. “They grew up in the USA, their viewpoints and beliefs were formed there. You must look for the roots of [their] evil in America.” American terrorism consultant Evan Kohlmann tweeted Friday morning, “The official media arm of the Chechen mujahideen has rejected allegations that two Chechen men were responsible for the Boston Bombing.”
