From Radio Free Europe yesterday:
Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov has accused the FBI of "killing without justification" a young ethnic Chechen thought to have ties to one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.  
Kadyrov said that Ibragim Todashev was a "good boy" and his father, who works in the administration of the Chechen capital, Grozny, is a "decent man."

There are all sorts of interesting theories one could make up about this, but the one obvious conclusion is that there's something wrong with our refugee system. Ibragim Todashev was granted refuge in the U.S. even though his family is part of the deep state of Russian-ruled Chechnya, part of the Putin-backed dictator's mafia. Young Todashev wasn't a loser in Chechnya's civil wars, he was a winner. He wasn't coming here to flee violence at home. Instead, he was coming here to practice his violence in our gleaming gyms.
