A Chechen national “refugee” is believed to be ringleader of Turkish terror attack

Posted by Ann Corcoran on July 2, 2016

And, get this!  Amnesty International had allegedly at one point stepped in to protect him from extradition to Russia.

Chechens can look like the guy next door! Ahmed Chataev believed to be the ‘brains’ behind recent Istanbul terror attack.

So, indeed we have more evidence (if we needed it) that terrorists are hiding in the refugee stream to Europe and in this case to Austria!

Keep in mind that the US takes ‘refugees’ from Austria—in fact, according to State Department data, 1,339 supposed refugees traveled from Austria to your towns from October 1, 2015 to May 31, 2016.  Where are they now?

Here is the news from Eurasia Review:

Following Tuesday’s horrific attack at Istanbul’s Ataturk airport, which resulted in 44 death at the hands of three suicide bombers, Turkey was quick to blame the Islamic State for the terrorist act. And while that may be accurate, something surprising has emerged about the alleged ringleader of the group of three men who have been since identified as Russian, Uzbek and Kyrgyz nationals. As Russia’s Kommersant and Turkish media report, a Chechen national suspected of being the mastermind behind the deadly Istanbul airport terrorist attack, had previously received refugee status in Austria, which helped him to repeatedly avoid extradition to Russia on terror charges.


It has been also revealed that Chataev was long wanted by the Russian authorities for terrorism-related offenses but he fled to Europe, where he was granted asylum, and successfully managed to escape extradition to Russia.


In 2008, he was detained with some other Chechen nationals in the Swedish town of Trelleborg as police found Kalashnikov assault rifles, explosives and ammunition in his car. As a result, he spent more than a year in Swedish prison.


In 2010, Chataev was arrested in Ukraine with his mobile phone files containing a demolition technique instruction and photos of people killed in a blast. Russia requested his extradition on terrorism-related charges but the European Court for Human Rights ordered Ukraine not to hand him over to Russia with Amnesty International also urging Ukrainian authorities to halt extradition as Chataev “could face an unfair trial and would be at risk of torture and other ill-treatment.”

Just as in the Boston Bomber case, the Russians had the goods on an Islamic terrorist and the bleeding hearts in the west wouldn’t listen!

I heard this news on CNN this morning, but it has not been widely reported.

    Read, “Terror at Beslan” by John Giduck to learn more about the Chechen Muslims.

    • John Giduck and his book have been thoroughly discredited by both US and Russian experts.

      Aside from the Giduck’s false claims of US military service in special operations units in his speaker bios which remained for years until proof of Giduck’s grueling 58 days of service in the US Army emerged, Giduck published in his book that he had proceeded to Russia during the Beslan siege arriving before the final assault. The book is filled with direct observations of the smoking rubble and twisted metal, and bodies that had, in fact, been cleared away long before Giduck’s arrival in Beslan weeks if not months later.

      There are enough discrepancies in Giduck’s book to say that it is a work of fiction. Giduck later admitted that his Beslan travel claims were untrue after uncomfortable questions were raised about his timeline of events. Basic facts about the siege and its participants were discredited by Russians on the ground. Giduck also never credited siege photographs to the photographer which led reasonable people to believe that the photos were his. The list goes on and on.

    Do you remember the September 2004 terrorist attack on the school in Beslan, Russia? This was by Chechen Muslims. They are brutal.
