    Beslan's increasingly restless residents were told yesterday that high-ranking Russian military officers who "were still at their posts" were suspected of helping Chechen militants seize the town's school last September.


    Two men holding a rank "higher than a major and a colonel" were said to be involved in the plot and had apparently deliberately not fulfilled the functions for which they are paid, presumably in exchange for some kind of bribe.


    The revelation, disclosed by the parliamentary commission investigating the atrocity, appeared to shatter the illusion that the tragedy was the isolated work of a small band of Chechen separatists.


    It is likely to enrage the victims' mothers who are becoming increasingly vociferous in their demands that the president of North Ossetia, the republic where Beslan is located, should resign. Last week they blocked Beslan's main highway for three days to press their demands and are threatening to take further "illegal" action if Alexander Dzasokhov, whom they accuse of failing to protect their children, does not step down.


    Alexander Torshin, chairman of the parliamentary commission looking into the bloodbath, said yesterday that "a terrorist act of such a scale would have been impossible to commit without accomplices."


    In the mayhem that followed the seizure of the school on 1 September, 330 people died, 186 of whom were children. Many residents have found it impossible to fathom how a group of militants allegedly numbering no more than 32 was able to hold more than 1,100 people hostage for three days.
    It is also unclear how they managed to smuggle so many weapons into the school, passing through so many official checkpoints. It is known that several policemen readily accepted bribes to turn a blind eye. SOURCE



    Looks like the "terrorists" got some "official" help once again.

    Our whole foreign policy has aided the "Jihadists" over the last few decades. Come to find out it was easier for our "government" to use Jihadists to destablize secular muslim governments than to deal with them directly. Our own fear of Arab unity and the resulting actions taken to "head it off" created most of these Jihadists.

    I suggest you look into that more seriously before embarrasing yourself with such statements.

    And I've seen your's...the difference being your's are all owned and controlled by just five or six transnational corporations with major ties to the MIC. The same folks who bring you the nightly news are the same folks that make the mega bucks from wars and destruction/rebuilding of course they're all gonna tell ya the absolute truth right?:rolleyes:

    The same folks own the liberal media too. The problem with liberals and liberal journalists is that they fail to understand that they're being hoodwinked by the same transnational corporations and foundations that conservatives are.

    If you own both teams you're gonna win no matter who loses.

    I believe some points you make are valid. But to insist that every journalist on the market is being hoodwinked is completely unrealistic.
